John 5:43 I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not receive me.
How do you understand this? “I have come in my Father’s name”
I see this as God and Messiah having the same name. If I come in my fathers name, I call myself by the name of my father. Messiah’s name is Yeshua. God our Savior.
Isaiah 45:22 22 “Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other. 23 By myself I have sworn; from my mouth has gone out in righteousness a word that shall not return: ‘To me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear allegiance.’
Is not God our only Savior? God, the Savior/Y’Shua.
This brings light to these verses:
Matthew 28:19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
If Messiah came in the name of the Father, and His given name to Mary is Yeshua, then baptism is done in the name of Yeshua, who is the name of the Father, the Son and of the Spirit of God.
John 16:23 In that day you will ask nothing of me. Truly, truly, I say to you, whatever you ask of the Father in my name, he will give it to you.
Ephisians 5:20 giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
Col 3:17 And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
This is how giving thanks to God the Father in the name of Yeshua works. When we give thanks to God using the name Yeshua, we are in fact calling God Himself by name. Because Yeshua came in the name of the Father, when we do things in the name of Yeshua we are glorifying the name of the Father. Who is the only God, our Savior. One God, one name, by which all are to be saved.
Acts 4:11 This Jesus is the stone that was rejected by you, the builders, which has become the cornerstone. 12 And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
John 5:43 I have come in my Father’s name,…..
I don’t see two names here. According to John 5:43 The name of God the Father revealed to us through Messiah is Yeshua, God our Savior.
