Summary: An Evagelistic, Faith building message on the name of Jesus and His power.
Is 9:6 — For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Mt 1:21 — And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
On my coffee table at home you will find Special Edition Magazines and a Book whose Introduction reads like this:
Her full name was Jacqueline Lee Bouvier Kennedy Onassis. But she was one of the rare one’s instantly recognizable anywhere in the world by only one name — Jackie.
I have for years been fascinated by her dignity, character, and sorrow. By the way she raised her children, and lived her life.
Nov. 22, 1963 / Blood stained suit — "I want America to see what they did to their President"
Charles de Gaulle — who marched in the funeral procession of President Kennedy said "She gave an example to the whole world how to behave."
After Bobby Kennedy’s death — "If they are gunning for Kennedy’s my children will be next" — Married a billionaire who owned an island off Greece, where her children could grow up out of the public eye.
When I first read that introduction, it left me thinking about one far greater then Jackie / Di / OJ / Churchill — His name is Jesus!
A pink BLOOD Stained SUIT told a NATION what they did to their PRESIDENT - But a BLOOD stained CROSS told the WORLD what they did to their SAVIOR
I. Time would not alot us to give His full Name & Titles — But He is recognizable any where in the world by onlyOne Name!
2. Jackie’s name is recognized by a couple generations — Jesus is recognized by a couple millennial’s!
