All Hail the Power of Jesus Name!
Christian Devotional by Pastor Cecil Thompson


Pastor
Cecil Thompson

Philippians 2:9-11

"Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."

There is power in the mighty name of Jesus. Today's hymn was written over two hundred years ago, but it still holds tremendous meaning for us today. Many stories have been related about how the name of Jesus (Yeshua) has been called upon in time of need, and has brought deliverance.

ALL HAIL THE POWER OF JESUS' NAME! by E. P. Scott

All hail the power of Jesus' Name!
Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
and crown Him Lord of all.
Bring forth the royal diadem,
and crown Him Lord of all.

Ye seed of Israel's chosen race,
ye ransomed from the fall,
Hail Him who saves you by His grace,
and crown Him Lord of all.
Hail Him who saves you by His grace,
and crown Him Lord of all.

Let every kindred, every tribe,
On this terrestrial ball,
to Him all majesty ascribe,
and crown Him Lord of all;
To Him all majesty ascribe
and crown Him Lord of all.

O that, with yonder sacred throng,
we at His feet may fall,
Join in the everlasting song,
and crown Him Lord of all,
Join in the everlasting song,
and crown Him Lord of all!

Back in the mid eighteen hundreds, Rev. E. P. Scott was a missionary to India. One day he saw on the street a man of so strange an appearance that he inquired about him, and learned that he belonged to a wild mountain tribe among whom Christ had never been preached.

Mr. Scott prayed over the matter and decided to visit that tribe. As soon as he reached their mountain home, he fell in with a savage band who were on a war expedition. They seized him and pointed their spears at his heart. Expecting a quick death, the missionary pulled out his violin and began playing and singing in their native language the hymn "All hail the power of Jesus' name." He reached the stanza that reads: "Let every tribe and every tongue, On this terrestrial ball, To him all majesty ascribe, And crown him Lord of all..."

As he opened his eyes he saw that the natives had lowered their weapons and some were in tears. E. P. Scott spent the rest of his life ministering to these primitive people.

What does the name, "Jesus" mean to you? Have you called upon His name and released your own attempts to control your life? I urge you to invite Him to be the Lord---the master of your life.

Blessings dear hearts. Walk with God today. Trust Him completely and be a blessing.

--- Pastor Cecil
