You know, it used to be that the Name of the “Lord Jesus” had a great reverence, people highly honored It. And the ones who honored It could cast out evil spirits, by It, and could make nature obey their command, through His Name.

87 Now, a church. Now, the church name is associated with the nature of its character. Did you notice the Smyrna meaning “bitter”? And you notice each one of the church now, it’s the church name has something to do with the character of the church. I could say something here; but I better not, ’cause you’d get me wrong. See?
88 Your name does, too. You might not know it, but it does. Oh, yes. You say now, “It’s numerology.” No, it’s not. When Jacob was born they called him Jacob which was “supplanter;” but when he wrestled with the Angel, God changed his name to Israel, “a prince.” Is that right? Saul was “Saul of Tarsus,” a mean fellow; but, when he come to Jesus, he was called “Paul.” Simon’s name was “Simon”; but when he come to Jesus, he was called Peter, “a little stone.” Oh, yes, sir. The…Your name associates what you’re…It has an impression upon your character.
60-1206 - The Smyrnaean Church Age Rev. Branham
59 Watch all those names, they mean something, every name in the Bible. When you see one name in the Bible, it means something. Did you know, Israel’s wives, when they gave birth to the twelve patriarchs…Each one of those mothers, when they were having the baby, and the baby was being born, and them groaning; the groans that they came out, and named those boys. And the very groans that they give, signified the nature of the child and the place they’d make their final resting place. Every groan, amen, under the power of the Holy Ghost!
56-0617 - Revelation, Book Of Symbols Rev. Branham
In the Presence of the Almighty God to offer prayer… Our most beloved heavenly Father, it is indeed a great privilege that we have to come to Thee in the way of prayer, and with the great promise behind it, that prayer changes things. And in this day that we are now living, there is so many changes needed, and we pray that You will change all the wrong to right. Change sorrow into joy; change sickness into health; change sin into righteousness; change gloom into glory. Grant it, Father. Hear the prayers of Your people as we offer it to Thee in the Name of the Lord Jesus, Thy lovely Son. Amen. You may be seated.
57-0303E - What Think Ye Of Christ? Rev. Branham
26 And to show him what He was going to do, He changed his name in the 17th chapter. And He changed Sarah’s name. That’s right. Watch those names, mean something. Why did He change Jacob’s name to Israel? Why did He change Saul’s name to Paul? Why did He do all those things? After He overcome and entered into glory He said that His Name was changed. In Revelation it’s given a promise to those that overcome, He would make known His new Name. That’s right. Every time they overcome they was given a new name.
61-0211 - Abraham Rev. Branham
101 Changed him. Notice, God changed Abraham’s name. I better leave off of that. When I come back for a long revival, we’ll go into that. He had to change the name from his earthly name, to a name given by God.
102 You say, “What is a man’s name to do with anything?” Oh, brother, if you only knew! Why, some of these modern names we got! I don’t want to call them, ’cause it’ll hurt your feeling. But God has names that it means things, it changes the whole course. Oh, you say, “Nonsense!”
103 What about—what about Jacob? Before he become a prince before God, he had to have his name changed from Jacob to Israel. Is that right? Sure. Paul; Saul had to have his name changed to Paul. Oh, how many could we call, and saying that God changed their name! Abram to Abraham, Sarai to Sarah, changing their name. Oh, my! What a blessing, to get in some little church with an elected group, and go to teaching that, see the hallelujahs in the heart, when you see what God does.
62-0707 - Jehovah-Jireh #3 Rev. Branham
258 That expression. If you only—only knew the numerology of the Bible, and know what Elvis or—or Ricky means, to the Scripture! Uh-huh. Just like, why did Jesus…You say, “There is nothing to that, your name.” There isn’t? That name could only come in this last days, for this last-days people. 259 Why did Jesus change Abram’s name to Abraham, then, Sarai to Sarah? Why did He change Saul to Paul? Why did He change Simon to Peter, and so forth? You see, certainly it means something. 260 That name could not be spoken till this day. That’s the reason we got this hellish thing we got in the earth today, because of such things. The whole human race is corrupted. It’s—it’s gone, see, and that’s why it is.
63-0728 - Christ Is The Mystery Of God Revealed Rev. Branham
76 You say, “A name means nothing.” Then why did He change Abram’s name, to Abraham? Why did He change Saul’s name to Paul? Simon’s name to Peter? Why did He change His Own Name?
77 Why did He change Jacob to Israel? Not until he wrestled with the Lord, not until he overcome. And when Jesus overcome death, hell and the grave, the Bible said, “He had a new Name.” And when Jacob overcome.
63-0804A - Once More Rev Branham
I don’t care what the people has done. “There is not another Name under Heaven given among men whereby you can be saved.” “No remission of sin, only through the Name of Jesus Christ.” What, how good you are, what you do, that don’t have one thing to do with it. It’s God’s original Word; you got to stay with That. Whew! All right.
