In that day - "I will see you again" (John 16:22)
Whatever you ask the Father in My Name, He will give it to you (John 16:23)
Hitherto, you have asked nothing in My Name (John 16:24) - "ask and you will receive, that your joy may be full".
"And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you. Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full."You will ask in My Name (John 16:26)
The authority of the Name of Iesou is explained in several other places, among which are :
Ephesians 1: 17 - 23, especially v 21, Iesou is given a Name above every other name by the mighty power of God.
19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power 20 which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.Also in Philippians 2: 9 - 11, we read that God has highly exalted the Name of our Lord Iesou, such that at the Name of Iesou every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Iesou is Lord - to the glory of God the Father.
"Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."Conclusion
Let us learn to ask from God our Father in the Name of our Lord Iesou Christou.
