chain breaker1

Jesus’ names and titles show what he has accomplished, but also what he is doing today and how he functions in the church.

The first name we looked at is “the Breaker.”

Micah 2:13
The breaker is come up before them: they have broken up, and have passed through the gate, and are gone out by it: and their king shall pass before them, and the LORD on the head of them.
This verse is in the context of when Christ will come back to gather Israel and rescue them out of the desert where a remnant has been hiding. So we will see this come to pass in the future. But now he is still a breaker. He breaks through whatever opposes us or has us in prison. Then he enlarges the gate so all can pass through, leading us with the LORD Jehovah at the head (the two of them together).The name of the Breaker is similar to what Jesus said in Luke 4:18 about how he was anointed to “set the captives free” and the “opening of the prison to them that are bound.”

The second name is Shiloh and it is in the prophecy of Jacob over Judah.

Gen. 49:10 NET
The scepter will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until he comes to whom it belongs; the nations will obey him.

Shiloh comes from the root verb shalah which means to rest, prosper, be quiet. Thus the name Shiloh is rest-giver, quiet-giver, rest-maker. Until he comes to be the rest-maker. That will be when he ushers in the Millennial kingdom, the sabbath rest of 1000 years for Israel. But he is a rest-maker now too.

We can pray using these names. When we or someone we are ministering to needs to have a breakthrough or get out of a prison or some kind of oppressive situation, we can use the name of the Breaker. He can then enlarge the gate and lead them out!

Or if someone is in need of rest and a dramatic change, we can pray in the name of Shiloh. Then he will go to work to cause the storm to cease as the rest-maker, rest-giver.
