Philippians 2:9-11 Therefore, God who highly exalted Him and gave Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

In the story of the betrayal of Jesus in the garden the detachment of troops is not specifically numbered. Historians will tell you in those days Romans would not send out a detachment of less than 100 men for any formal arrest. So there are also officers from the chief priest and Pharisees attending too. The Exact number of men is unknown. When they approached Jesus they called His name and He replied, “I am He”. And they all fell to the ground! When they got up, Jesus asked again who they were looking for and they said “Jesus”. And, Jesus, replied,” I told you I am He” and they fell to ground again!

My pastor's wife spoke of a time while visiting someone she walked upon their dog startling both her and the dog. As the growling dog came towards her she yelled the name of Jesus twice and the dog settled down.

Remember we should tell our problems how powerful Jesus is and not Jesus about our problems.
