According to the author, Jesus inherited a more excellent Name through His resurrection. He notes that this inheritance occurred on the day He was raised from the dead.

Quotes From the Book - The Name of Jesus by Kenneth Hagin

Your Identity in Christ

Until you understand your new identity which is in Christ, you cannot walk in the realities of the new life you have received. The author urges, that as you you study the Bible, you should focus on the Epistles to understand your identity in Christ.

As you read, underline expressions like “in Christ” or “in Him” to grasp your position as a believer. Recognize that the Church collectively and individually represents Christ on earth.

The author notes that you must embrace the truth that “as He is, so are we in this world,” understanding that you have the same authority and standing with the Father as Jesus did.

He reminds you to refrain from trying to earn righteousness; instead, accept that righteousness is a result of being born again. Just as branches bear fruit because of their connection to the vine, you should produce the works of Christ as you abide in Him.

You must also understand, according to the author, that God has unlimited confidence in the Church, evidenced by the authority He has given her through the Name of Jesus. And then choose to accept this challenge to walk in faith and fulfill your role as Christ’s representative on earth.
