Therefore God also exalted him highly and gave him a name which is above every name: let in the name of Jesus every knee bow, things in heaven, and things on earth, and things under the earth (Philippians 2: 9 -10).
The above writing is final on the authority of Jesus. This is different from the character or identity of His Name. For example, Jesus passed by many sick people who did not use his identity to receive healing when he walked the earth. In fact, the Bible says He came to a place where there were a lot of helpless people, He healed one person and left from there (Read John 5: 1-15). Yet He had His identity, He had His character. So using His Name, it's His authority.
You don't even have to have faith to use His Name. His Name is an instrument and a gift given to you to use. And the authority of His Name is over things and beings and anything that can be identified. Any of us can use this Name and the power in it. John 14: 12-14 says, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever believes in me, the works that I do, he will also do; and he will do works greater than these; for I am going to my Father. And whatever you ask in my name I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask for something on my behalf, I will.
He gave us the power of attorney — the legal right to act on his behalf — to use his name. So, don't be fooled; use His Name. Use it against Satan, the forces of darkness and circumstances, and they will respond to you as they would to Jesus.
