Hebrews 1:4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

Under normal circumstances, we inherit our name from our father. Jesus was no different than we are, in that respect.

It is true that the name was determined and declared at the time of conception. Luke 1:31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.

Matthew 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

WHO WAS THE MOTHER OF JESUS? Luke 1:26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name [was] Mary.

MARY WAS STILL A VIRGIN WHEN JESUS WAS BORN. Matthew 1:25 And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.

WHO WAS THE FATHER OF JESUS? Luke 1:35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

Thus, Jesus inherited a better NAME than any other person could have inherited. The HOLY GHOST was His father. He also inherited a better NATURE than other humans do. He inherited better BLOOD than other humans do.

HIS NAME, HIS NATURE, HIS BLOOD-- made it possible for Him to purchase Salvation for us all.

Hebrews 7:25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.


Philippians 2:9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of [things] in heaven, and [things] in earth, and [things] under the earth; And [that] every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ [is] Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

We can safely rest our souls in His care. Put full confidence in Him. Place no confidence in your own abilities.
