Equipping the Saints Series
By Larry and Audrey Eddings
ExcerptJesus came as REDEEMER to set people free from the powers of darkness, from the consequences of their fall and sin, to reconcile them to their Creator, and, as Peter said "transfer us into the Kingdom of Light."
Jesus came as SAVIOR to save people from death to life. His very name "Jesus" means "God is salvation," carrying with it the meaning that God is our Savior. Savior also means "healer." God is our Healer.
Jesus' Name carries with it not only the meaning of His mission, but also the authority with which to carry out that mission. Jesus' disciples healed "in His Name" they cast out demons "in His Name," they baptized "in His Name" with total authority of that Name.
