    Jesus Christ, ( the lamb) prayed for us to Jesus, ( the Father,) and said I have manifested THY NAME to men. The name which is above every name. JESUS! The prayer was completed by the Holy Ghost who transmitted the message in the Spirit. What an awesome gift.The Godhead complete was at work on our behalf at that moment. I praise, honor, and extol the King of Heaven.
