Jesus—The Ruler Of All Things

Jesus—The Ruler Of All Things!

 

For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence (Colossians 1:16-18).

 

               What an awesome description of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ! He has the preeminence over ALL things. Everything in life is subject to Him, for they were made by Him! No wonder God purposed through Him to reconcile the universe to Himself, making peace through His blood, which was shed upon the Cross. Through Jesus, “all the broken and dislocated pieces of the universe—people and things, animals and atoms—get properly fixed and fit together in vibrant harmonies, all because of his death…” (Colossians 1:20MSG).  

    

 To know Jesus is to be in union with the Ruler and Maker of all things. John 3:35 says, “The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand….” Jesus had preeminence over all things. No wonder He calmed the storms, walked on water; raised the dead, restored maimed limbs, opened blind eyes, and unstopped deaf ears. No wonder He fed five thousand men (women and children not counted) with five loaves of bread and two fishes, with twelve baskets full taken as leftovers!

 

 

Jesus tamed the forces of nature and was never a victim because He had authority over all things.  “Papa God” loved Him so much and committed everything into His hands. No wonder the Bible says when He was raised from the dead He ascended to heaven and sat on the “right hand of power” (Matthew 26:64, Mark 14:62). Notice it didn’t say “right hand side.” Jesus is seated at God’s right hand, not right hand side. “Right hand side” refers to a geographical location, but “right hand,” in scriptural parlance, refers to authority or seat of power.

 

 

Ephesians 1:20-22 also alludes to this: “Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named…..”Jesus is seated at the seat of power in heaven, where He reigns and rules over all things; and you know what? You’re seated together with Him (Ephesians 2:6); thus you also have the authority to reign and rule over all things, in the Name of Jesus.

 

 

Prayer

 

Dear Father, I rejoice in you today, and magnify your majesty for making me to sit together with Christ in the heavenly realms, where I reign and rule with Him over all the circumstances of life, in the Name of Jesus. Amen.
