The lordship of Jesus Christ II

Dear friends, welcome to the „Daily Word for Spiritual Edification». I trust that this word that contains God’s wisdom will strengthen you and lift up your spirit.We have been talking about the lordship of Jesus and about what it means for us in our daily life. Yesterday we saw that the lordship of Jesus implies His rule over everything and everybody. We also saw that the Lord desires to exercise His lordship on this earth through His Body which is the Church.The Bible says that we live in the midst of enemies.
«The LORD said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand, till I make Your enemies Your footstool.” The LORD shall send the rod of Your strength out of Zion. Rule in the midst of Your enemies» (Psalm 110:1-2).
This passage talks about Christ: «Rule in the midst of Your enemies», but the Body of Christ — His Church — is included in this prophetic word. Jesus was told to sit at the right hand of God; but it would be God’s children that would overcome God’s enemies and every thing that rise against the will of God. God wants us to rule and reign in the midst of the enemies and unfavourable circumstances. We must rule because we have been given God’s authority and we were born conquerors.
«For whatever is born of God overcomes the world…» (1 John, 5:4).
We must be the one overcoming and not the one to be overcome! God is not afraid of anything, because He rules and reigns over everything. God is the Ruler! He wants us to express our faith and authority as rulers on this earth.God wants every one of us to live above the circumstances and not ‘under the circumstances’. God desires us to exercise authority and rule of Jesus over all things and circumstances and to subdue all things that rise against the will of God in our lives and on this earth.
«For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ» (2 Corinthians, 10: 3-5).
God has already given us authority on this earth. Do not forget that
“whatever is born of God overcomes the world» (1 John, 5:4).
God bless you!Till tomorrow!Pastor Rufus Ajiboye
