I know we’re not supposed to rejoice that the spirits are subject to us (Luke 10:20), but they really are subject to us, and so is everything else in heaven.
But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ–by grace you have been saved–and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus [emphasis mine.]
I understood that in the Millennial Reign, the saints were ruling and reigning with Christ. I did not find out until this morning that, in fact, the saints are ruling with Christ now. We are already seated in him. In the age to come, it will be evidence of God’s loving kindness (2:7). Right now, it is evidence of God’s multifaceted wisdom to the heavenly rulers and authorities (3:10).
Friend, if you are a saint of God, you are in Christ, seated at the right hand of God above all principalities, powers, rulers, and authorities in the heavenly realm. They all know who you are. Do you know who you are?
And now, how do I pray if my words are coming from the throne of Christ? Differently, I hope.
