… and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,
Every believer has been seated together with Christ at the right hand of the Father. This is recognized as a position of authority over all the powers of darkness. It is the same position of authority Adam had before he sinned. Adam was given authority over all the earth and God told Adam to use that authority to walk in dominion upon the earth.
You have been seated with Christ far above all principalities, powers, might, dominion, and every name that is named. Not a little above, FAR above! Through Christ we have been restored back to the place of dominion that God had given Adam. This authority means you have been given delegated power, God’s power. You exercise your authority over satan and all his works by faith in the name of Jesus, the name above all names.
We need to fully understand our position in Christ, the authority that has been given to us, and exercise that authority through faith in the name of Jesus. We are to trample on all the power of the enemy as Jesus declared in Luke 10:19. Romans 5:17 tells us we are to reign in this life through Jesus Christ. So don’t allow the powers of darkness to rule over you. By faith from your position in Christ, use the name of Jesus and keep them under your feet where they belong.
