Power in The Name of Jesus

There is power in the Name of Jesus. Power to free a person from spiritual bondage.

Sometimes we lose sight of just how great and powerful our God is. But this story from northeast India reminds us the Lord has victory over spiritual forces around us.

Madhu directs a discipleship-mission training in a spiritually dark area.

Madhu’s Story

He went with the disciple-makers he was training to a village where he prayed with people and they shared the Gospel of Jesus.

They were told of a family needing help. Omana, the young wife in this family, had been bedridden for five months. Her family had spent lots of money consulting doctors and witch doctors but with no result.

Madhu’s team visited the home and told the family about Jesus. And in the name of Jesus, they prayed for Omana. After prayer, her behavior turned strange. She was rolling on the floor, shouting and vomiting and her family tried to restrain her. At one point, she fled from her bed!

Looking for Omana

The village went looking for Omana and one man found her trying to hang herself from a tree.

He managed to get her loose and they carried her home. Soon after, she told everyone she was leaving, then she went outside and acted like she was starting a motorcycle—but there was no motorcycle.

Finally, Omana fell to the ground unconscious and the demon left her! Her illness and erratic behavior caused by demonic forces had troubled her since childhood. The demons fought to maintain control, but they were no match for the name of Jesus and God’s power.

It will take time

After she was freed and healed, Omana along with her husband, daughter, and mother-in-law all accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior and were baptized. By that time, the whole village witnessed the power of God and marveled at Jesus who could set spiritual captives free. Many of them have been slow to repent and put their faith in Christ. “It will take time,” Madhu said, “and our ongoing prayer.”

God is greater than any spiritual or physical power we encounter. And Jesus is the only One who offers true freedom.

Global Disciples Canada is a Christian mission organization that trains local leaders living near least-reached communities to multiply disciples for Christ. One-third of our world hasn’t heard the Good News of Jesus. Yet. Global Disciples refers to these as “least-reached” people and fewer than 10% of all missionaries work among these groups. We live in a time where many of these people are within reach of a local church. Through our simple and effective strategy of training and coaching, believers share the Gospel in their own nations and cultures. Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all nations,” and we’re committed to doing just that. If you are looking for a Christian mission organization to partner with to become a better disciple and help make disciples, connect with us today!
