The authority of the believer – part 6

Filed under: Spiritual Warfare School — kellporten @ 20:08

What is our position of authority?

In the last post, we said that those who receive Jesus get a position of authority at the right hand of the Father. We will look a little closer at that later, but first we will look at Jesus’ position of authority.

Jesus’ position of authority

Jesus is sitting right now at the right hand of the Father.

Eph 1:20
Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,

The fact that Jesus is sitting at the right hand of the Father means that He has a position over the evil spiritual world.

Eph 1:21
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:

Our position of authority

In Ephesians, in the second chapter, we can read about OUR position.

Eph 2:6
And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

We live physically on earth, but our position of authority is in Jesus Christ at the right hand of the Father. Therefore, we, just like Jesus, have a position of authority over the evil spiritual world.
