Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
They use his name as a curse word, when it should be praised!
Why do men hate the name of Jesus?
It's a name with Power....Power to save. Read (Matthew 1:21)
This name transforms some, and troubles others.
(Acts 4:12) Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
* Could it be they hate his cross.
* They hate what it stands for!
Today we should not worship the cross, but who hung on that cross.
* They hate what it shows us! SIN!
Thank the lord, he will never hang there again.
We gave him thorns, the Father gave him a throne.
(1 Corinthians 1:18) describes what they think of the cross.
They do not mind a generic god "little g" They do hate the name of JESUS!
* Could it be they hate his crown.
He is Lord!
Read (Hebrews 12:2)
* He sits with Honor.
* He sits on High.
* He sits with the heavenly Host.
* We are his Body.
* We are covered by his Blood.
(John 1:12) But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
This name gives me peace, and comfort.... The name of JESUS is above every name. read (Isaiah 6)
* Could it be they hate his church.
(1 John 3:13) Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.
What is the reason they hate his church?
* We are his Bride.
