A name is a word or set of words by which a person or thing is known, addressed or referred to. Sometimes it describes what the person believes, an experience, an incident, a place or event of interest, an aspiration or an expectation. Then other times it could be deeper when it comes to a revelation, prophecy, or even as a direct instruction from the Almighty. Names can affect, remember, direct, motivate, or even serve as an instrument of alliance. My maternal grandmother Lady Diana Mboma told me the story behind my own name: Gabriel. Fortunately, she is a pious and very spiritual woman. She is from Amaegbu – Nkwerre in Imo state and is approaching 100 years old. Among his children and grandchildren, he likes to discuss spiritual matters with me because he believes that I was born and spiritually inclined. She told me that God gave me the name through prophecy while I was still in the womb. My mother was told that she would conceive a child and a great messenger of God and that his name would be Gabriel; that would impact the world for Christ. And many other instructions came with that which included not shaving my head for the first three years and so on. Sure, your prayers, stories, and advice helped me rediscover myself and my destiny. It was she who told me that my maternal great-grandmother was a very powerful clairvoyant and that she always said that there is no way a bird flies overhead that cannot be seen from below. Which means that there is nothing hidden under the sun, except what God does not want to show you. Wow! I am blessed to have come from this lineage, a generational series of godly men and women of God. I am the fourth generation and the grace continues. I see the sign. This must be a very powerful generational pact! One of the things that strengthens Israel and the Jewish religion and race is oral tradition. They will always pass information on to their next generations and will also remember that God will also always instruct them to tell their children and generations to come the testimonies and stories behind their releases, covenants, and dealings with him. It is a great way to transfer faith, covenants, loyalty, and grace.
Please, I don’t want to bother you too much with the rest of the story and events, but even when my mother passed away very early and the documented records were lost, the divine prophecy, the calling, the name refused to go away or disappear. be buried. Even when the messenger dies, God’s message will not. He remains and will always speak and act at the appointed time. What are the words, events, and aspirations behind your name? God’s word about you will surely be fulfilled! Yes, that prophecy was from God. He just couldn’t escape it. It was divine. And my name continues to remind me of my assignment, my source, and the covenants behind my mission. It helps me stay focused and empowered. Names, when spiritual and divine, carry grace, anointing, and authority. They invoke covenants and power. They invoke identities, visions and missions. Every time I hear or use my name, I remember why I am here. Help remind me of my mission. It’s like a ‘mission tag’. I must carry your mark. I must run with the message from the one who sent me. I must work for the kingdom, for God and for humanity regardless of the situation. I must carry the message to the world in a selfless and diligent way. That is why I came. I do not have any other option. I am Gabriel! That great angel will always say: “I am Gabriel. He who is in the presence of God … I was sent to give you this message.” He brought that message that changed the world to Marry and Joseph, Zacharias and Elizabeth and was also actively involved in that unique monumental liberation and spiritual battle that revealed so much to us in the book of Daniel. But this piece is not about me. I only briefly mentioned the above to show that I understand a little about the name and the impact it can have on the wearer, their mission, and the environment. Now let’s move on.
There are people whom God gave names to since they were born and also others to whom he changed theirs halfway through. Why? What’s in a name that you should be so aware of? Look at Abraham. God changed his name from Abram to Abraham at the age of ninety-nine when it was time to actualize his covenant to have a promised son and raise up a great nation that will bless the entire world. This promise must come from a womb already dead, hope and expectation, so it must first trigger a positional realignment, of belief and identification. It was like raising the living from the dead. The Almighty had a generational divine plan for him. Listen: “When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to him and said, ‘I am Almighty God. Walk before me and be perfect. I will establish my covenant between me and you, and I will multiply you greatly. . ‘Then Abram fell face down, and God said to him: As for me, this is my covenant with you: you will be the father of many nations. Your name will no longer be Abram, but your name will be Abraham, because I have made you the father of many nations. I will make you very fruitful; I will make of you nations, and kings will descend from you. your God and the God of your descendants after you. And to you and your descendants I will give the land where they reside, all the land of Canaan, as an eternal possession, and I will be your God. ” Genesis 17: 1-8. My God!
Previously he had changed his direction, position and thinking, but now he must also change his name to suit and stimulate the promise and covenant to give him a promised son through whom he will raise nations, kings and generations of pious and blessed people for him. . First address, second thought, and now name. You may need all of these to fit right into God’s plan for your life. Are you currently where God wants you to be? Are you operating the way he wants? Do you think like him or like he thinks of you? So, what’s your name? Here, I’m not just referring to your physical name. No. There is a name that God calls you in the spirit, in the dream and in your manifestation. Yes. That’s what you are. This is also true when your life does not match your name. For example, you answer Michael, Christian, but you are a thief, a cheater. Your real name is a thief and not Michael. What calls or shows you in the spirit is more real and more authentic. We know that the Devil responds to good names and appears as the angel of light, but his true name and nature is Satan, the deceiver, the destroyer, and the traitor. Then your spiritual identity supersedes what you respond to in the physical. And that’s where your destiny is. His parents named him Abram, but God now calls him Abraham because there are roles and grace to come upon him. Your name must fit into the divine program. Now what is your name? You are what God calls you. You are his beloved, lifted up and blessed! We will continue.
