TOPIC: SET FAR ABOVE ALL THINGS
…according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come (Ephesians 1:19-21).
The Father set Jesus not just above all principality and power, but far above all the different classes of spiritual beings: principalities, powers, might or thrones, dominions and every name that is named. Names like cancer, diabetes, leukaemia, asthma, HIV/AIDS etc., bow to the Name of Jesus. He has all power and authority, and He’s far above all kings, presidents, and governments. He’s "…the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords" (1 Timothy 6:15).
When God set Him in this high place of glory He put all things under His feet, and legally declared Him to be the head over all things for the benefit of the Church. Read Ephesians 1:22-23: "And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, Which is his body, the fullness of him that filleth all in all."
The Church is His body; if, therefore, all things have been placed beneath His feet, and we’re His body, it means all things have been placed beneath the feet of the Church! Satan is under your feet; failure, sickness, poverty, and death are all under your feet. Glory be to God!
It doesn’t matter what part of the body you are. Perhaps you just gave your heart to Christ, and joined the Church yesterday or even today, you’re above all things! You’re seated at the right hand of God in Christ Jesus; that means you’re in the place of divine authority and power. Therefore, reign in life, and rule over circumstances; exercise the dominion of the Spirit. Halleluiah!
Dear Father, I thank you for making me sit with Christ, far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come! I rejoice at this awesome blessing as I exercise my dominion in Christ, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
