Dear Eva,

> NAU John 5:43 "I have come in My Father's name, and you do not
  receive Me; if another comes in his own name, 
you will receive him.
> You have a Name, If I look you up on people search I can find your SS,
  birth date, phone number where you live where 
you have lived. I know
that is you. If you tell me your name is the same 
as your Father's name
it will be the same name and different ss card 
different address etc, but the same name.
> Yeshoshua or Jesus is not the name of his father, he said many would 
come saying I am the Christ or Messisah and 
deceive many. Many is alot
of people. No one likes to be deceived. If he told 
Paul his name and he
told the soldiers his name, If Peter used his name 
dont you think
that would be his name? and if other people come 
saying something else
is his name is he not saying that that is a lie 
and dont believe it?
Even if they do great things? His name is 
important to me because it
will reflect his fathers name and that is who I 
want to worship and be like.
> there is a scripture that says we receive a blessing when we think on The Name.

HH: I think I see your issue. You may think that 
someone coming in the name of someone else has the 
same name as the second person. That is not the 
case. Both persons represent the same name 
however, the name of the person sending the other. 
Here are some verses that show one's name is not 
the same as that of the person in whose name one 
is acting:

Deut. 18:7 Then he shall minister in the name of 
the LORD his God, as all his brethren the Levites 
do, which stand there before the LORD

HH: Aaron's name remained Aaron, even though he 
ministered in the name of the Lord

Deut. 25:6 And it shall be, that the firstborn 
which she beareth shall succeed in the name of his 
brother which is dead, that his name be not put 
out of Israel

HH: The firstborn does not have the same name as 
the dead brother.

1Sam. 17:45 Then said David to the Philistine, 
Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, 
and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name 
of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of 
Israel, whom thou hast defied.

HH: David's name remained David, even though he 
came to Goliath in the name of the Lord.
