to us! If it’s so sweet now there is something unspeakably wonderful in store for us when we come to know the full meaning of this title. In the not too distant future it will be re­ vealed to us. His full title by which we now know Him is the Lord Jesus Christ. (Whenever you refer to Him, never do as some of the cults or mod­ ernists, as just Jesus. Use His full name.) In Revelation 3:12 a blessed promise of the believer’s receiving a new name is given. Christ has said, “I will write upon him the name of my God . . . and the name of the city of my God.” Have you realized that we have already received one of the Lord’s names? We are called Christians. As someone has pointed out, it is the name Christ, plus the letters i-a-n- which should stand for our own tes­ timony. “I am nothing.” That’s a good definition. Jesus is the name by which we are saved. The angel announced, “Thou shalt call his name Jesus, for He shall save the people from their sins.” Some day we’re go­ ing to know this new name which He had promised to give us. It’s the same way that a bridegroom always confers his name upon his bride. As his wife, she c a r r i e s that name through the rest of her life. I think when Christ is about to an­ nounce that new name, which even angels don’t know now, all the uni­ verse will be breathlessly silent. What a tremendous thing that will be! Aren’t you glad that you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your per­ sonal Saviour, and that as such you are a part of the Church, His body? That just reveals a sample of God’s great love and grace. Everything that belongs to Him, even this new name, He will give to us. In verse 13 of Revelation 19, we see our Saviour prophetically clothed with a vesture dipped in blood, and His name is called the Word of God. On the cross He gave His life as an

atonement for our sins. There at Cal­ vary He was covered from head to foot with blood. Here, when He re­ turns in glory, the blood staining His vesture will be that of His ene­ mies. Have you found the peace of God through peace with God? May this be your moment of decision. Christ suddenly appeared on the horizon of this earth many years ago. When He went to glory, He went up to the highest heaven. God gave Him a name which is above every name. He must come back. He promised it, and will never fail to keep His word. This section of Revelation tells us what that will be like when He re­ turns as King of kings and Lord of lords. It is my fervent prayer that you will be ready to meet Him face to face.
