Adopted into the family Name.

“in the Name of Jesus” is not just a tagline to put at the end of a prayer.

Think of asking “according to His will” in the Nature, character, and Authority of His Royal Name.

I like to think of it from the perspective of  being adopted into the Royal family and the authority that comes with the royal robe and signet ring.

Here are a few verses to ponder.

Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Matthew 7:22-23 (KJV)

Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth.
And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so.
And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?
And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.
Acts 19:13-16 (KJV)

And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
1 John 5:14 (KJV)

The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.
Psalms 34:17 (KJV)

The LORD is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.
Proverbs 15:29 (KJV)

Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.
John 9:31 (KJV)

And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
John 14:13 (KJV)

If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
John 15:7 (KJV)

Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.
James 4:3 (KJV)

For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
Romans 8:13-17 (KJV)

Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
James 2:19 (KJV)

In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:

Ephesians 1:5 (KJV)

To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.
Galatians 4:5 (KJV)
