Spiritual Weapons: The Name of 耶稣

祷告“Flog your enemies with the Name of 耶稣, for there is no weapon more powerful 在 heaven or on earth.” – St. John Climacus

“Blessed be the Name of 耶稣.” – The Divine Praises

Among the 精神武器 在 our arsenal, there are none as powerful as the Holy Name of 耶稣. The saints have healed the sick, conquered temptation, demolished heresies, driven away demons, and converted sinners by 在voking this powerful name. It is the name that signifies our hope and our salvation. In fact, 耶稣 is the most powerful name 在 heaven and earth, and 圣经 tells us that “at the name of 耶稣 every knee should bow, 在 heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that 耶稣 Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

But what does 耶稣 mean? How can we grow 在 holiness 通过 calling on the name of 耶稣? Let’s find out.


The name 耶稣 means, “God saves” 在 Hebrew. To the Jews, this name was deeply significant. It recalled their freedom from enslavement 在 Egypt, the conquering of their enemies, and their entrance 在to the promised land, led 通过  the military hero, Joshua. Not coincidentally, 耶稣 在 Hebrew is the same name as Joshua.

Yet, 耶稣 was no military leader. Rather than driving out temporal enemies, he conquered the spiritual enemies of sin, Satan, and death, and he leads us to the true promised land of heaven. As the Angel announced to 玛丽, the Savior would be called 耶稣 because, “他将拯救他的人民脱离罪恶。”

教理主义以美丽的方式总结了这些真理 :

但是包含一切的一个名字就是神的儿子化身所得到的名字:耶稣。神的名字也许不会被人类的嘴唇说出来,但是通过假设我们的人性,上帝的话语会将其交给我们,我们可以调用它:“Jesus,” “YHWH saves.” The name “Jesus”包含一切:神与人以及创造与拯救的整个经济。祈祷“Jesus” is to 在voke him and to call him within us. His name is the only one that contains the presence it signifies. 耶稣 is the Risen One, and whoever 在vokes the name of 耶稣 is welcoming the Son of God who loved him and who gave himself up for him.

The more we meditate on the name of 耶稣, the more we grow to love it.


罪ce the earliest centuries of the Church, the name of 耶稣 has been 在voked to drive out demons and heal the sick. But above all, it has been called upon to conquer sin, overcome temptation, and grow 在 holiness. In fact, many of the saints became saints 通过 doing nothing else but calling on the name of 耶稣, either 通过 ceaselessly repeating his name or 通过 praying a 祷告 such as, “Lord 耶稣 Christ, have mercy on me a sinner.”

The name of 耶稣 is 在credibly powerful for combatting temptations and 在 conquering sinful passions. No matter what you’re struggling with—愤怒,酗酒,欲望,骄傲,懒惰,恐惧— the name of 耶稣 can conquer it.

“Naught but the name of 耶稣,”克莱尔沃(Clairvaux)的圣伯纳德(St. Bernard)说,“可以抑制愤怒的冲动,抑制自尊心的膨胀,治愈嫉妒的伤口,带动奢侈的冲击,消除肉欲的火焰–可以化解贪婪,并逃避不纯净和愚昧的想法。”

Now, to clarify, repeating the name of 耶稣 should never be mindless. We should not treat this name as a magical 在cantation, but should rather realize that we are calling on a living Person—one who loves us and gave himself for us. By 在voking this name, we are acknowledging our sin, helplessness, and our need for constant mercy. By calling on 耶稣, we are crying like St. Peter as he drowned 在 the waves, “Lord, save me!”

如果您想战胜罪恶并在美德上成长,那么首先要考虑自己的需要和无助。确认一下— it’s healthy to do this. Then, call sincerely and constantly on the great and holy name of 耶稣. I promise you, he will come to your aid.

I will conclude with the words of St. Bernardine of Sienna, who had a great devotion to the Holy Name of 耶稣 and who summarizes it far better than I ever could.

耶稣, Name full of glory, grace, love and strength! You are the refuge of those who repent, our banner of warfare 在 this life, the medicine of souls, the comfort of those who morn, the delight of those who believe, the light of those who preach the true 信仰, the wages of those who toil, the healing of the sick. To You our devotion aspires; 通过 You our 祷告s are received; we delight 在 contemplating You. O Name of 耶稣, You are the glory of all the saints for eternity. Amen.
