1. The Covenant Being Fulfilled in the Name of the Person Who Made It.
【Lev. 26:9】 I will look on you with favor and make you fruitful and increase your numbers, and I will keep my covenant with you.
【Num. 6:27】 So they will put my name on the Israelites, and I will bless them.
He who fulfill the covenant is the person who has established it. Therefore, the covenant shall be fulfilled in the name of the person who have established it. It meant that the old covenant had been fulfilled in the name of Jehovah. In the age of the Old Testament, the Israelites prayed and offered sacrifices in the name of “Jehovah.”
Likewise, the new covenant was established by Jesus. It is Jesus who fulfills the new covenant. Therefore, Saints in the New Testament era prayed and worshiped in the name of “Jesus.”
【Luke 22:20】 And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.
You will not be blessed if you call a name other than Jehovah when you make a sacrifice according to the old covenant. For the only one who will fulfill the old covenant is the LORD who established it. Likewise, what if you call a name other than the “Jesus” that established it when you worship the new covenant? You cannot receive the blessings of the new covenant which was given in the name of Jesus.
The worship that we have to offer today should be the very same new covenant worship that the early church offered 2,000 years ago. When we worship, we must call the name of Jesus and pray in the name of Jesus.
