And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.
Through Jesus Christ we have been reconciled, restored back into a right relationship with God. He took our sin and gave us His righteousness. When Adam sinned, man’s relationship with God was broken for our God is a holy God. But once someone is born again, they have been spiritually restored back (reconciled) to where Adam was before he had sinned. What Adam originally had has now been restored back to us.
Adam was given authority in the earth and he was to take dominion over it and subdue it. God’s plan has not changed. Through our restored relationship with God we have been placed in a position of authority. When Jesus was raised from the dead and ascended to heaven He restored that authority back to us for we have been seated together with Him at the right hand of God, far above all principality, power, might, and dominion. This represents a place of authority.
To exercise that authority we use the name of Jesus, which is the name above all names. We are to trample on the powers of darkness through His name, and proclaim the good news to the whole world. Through reconciliation we have been placed right back where Adam was before he sinned. We simply have to know our rightful place of authority, and use the name of Jesus, and we can keep satan and all of his works under our feet.
