Hillsong Conference 2014: NO OTHER NAME. [VIDEO]
History’s bowels have coughed up multitudes of names chained to fame; the tenacious, the notorious, the religious and the sacrilegious.
What images flit across the window of your mind when you hear names such as Socrates and Churchhill, Mussolini, Mandela and Einsten?
Do you recoil when you hear Hitler?
Does inspiration hit you between the eyes when you hear Armstrong?
Do you yawn and roll those same eyes when you think of Shakespeare?
Names are pregnant with purpose. That’s ‘what’s in a name’.
And friends if I may inquire, what stirs within the recesses of your soul when you hear Jesus’ name?
An enigma personified, wholly man, wholly divine.
Took on the lowest names, so slaves could reign as kings.
Deity who chose to endure mortality so we could enjoy … (pause) eternity.
Why does NO OTHER NAME affect the sceptic, the heretic and the majestic, the homicidal, suicidal and the matinee idol?
NO OTHER NAME changed nature, mind-sets and matter, opened blind eyes, deaf ears and healed cancer.
NO OTHER NAME came with this mandate: Heaven’s Kingdom expressed on Earth.
But if His miracles are just ‘fairy tales’, then why do millions gather putting their lives on the line for HIS name?
I’ve come to the conclusion that, THERE IS NO OTHER NAME!
And whether in twos, threes or millions, we gather under
NO. OTHER. NAME.
