THE REIGN OF CHRIST AND
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 fulness of him that filleth all in all (Ephesians 1:22-23).
The resurrection of Jesus Christ started a new reign, the reign of His spiritual Kingdom. The Bible says, “For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ)” (Romans 5:17). This is remarkable!
In Acts 13:38, the Bible says, “Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins.” It says remission of sins is through Jesus Christ. And Philippians 2:9 says, “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name.” The 10th verse says, “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth.” This is extraordinary!
Jesus was raised from the dead and given the Name that has power over all things, over all three domains: heaven, earth and hell. He’s Lord and Master over all things! Glory to God! From the time He began
to reign through the Church, He gave us the power of attorney to use His Name, to exercise authority in His Name. Hallelujah!
As long as we can use the Name of Jesus in the earth, Satan and his cohorts of darkness can’t run this world. It’s impossible! You can’t have that coexistence of authorities. The power that the Antichrist will
exercise will be an absolute authority, absolute power in the earth. But that can’t happen while we’re here, because the dominion of the Name of Jesus is over all nations.
The Bible says the Lord is “…the governor among the nations” (Psalm 22:28). Serve the Lord with gladness and with all your heart, knowing that you’re reigning in life through Jesus Christ.
Christ reigns through me and His righteousness is expressed through me. Christ reigns in the nations. I take advantage of His might, of His power, standing in His Name to break the influence of Satan over the
nations, over the peoples, over the leaders, over the young ones all around the world! His righteousness fills the earth and mantles the hearts of men, for all souls belong to Him. Hallelujah.
