Faith/Spirituality Forum: GOD'S NAME
GOD'S NAME QUESTION from Linda on October 15, 2002 I saw a program called TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL. In a part of the program one of the angels tried to stop a rape by saying: IN THE NAME OF GOD STOP and the rapist looked at her and ran into the woods. My Question is: Does the Name of God have that power today? I know it did centuries ago. But does it today. THANK YOU. Linda
ANSWER by John-Paul Ignatius, OLSM on October 19, 2002 Dear Mrs. Linda:
Yes, God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. There is power in His name. The Name of Jesus Christ makes the demons tremble.
We should call out God's name when we are in trouble and when we are going well.
There is no guarantee that God will scare away a rapist if we call out His name, but we can certainly make that prayer. God will act according to His wisdom in answering that prayer and we must accept His answer.
But, yes, the power of prayer is still powerful today.
