You’re Far Above Principalities

You’re Far Above

Principalities

 

And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it

(Colossians 2:15).

 

Paul’s letter to the Church at Ephesus in the sixth chapter of the book of Ephesians lets us in on the possibility of a structure of the devil and his demons. So he talks about the different orders of principalities: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12). So there are principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this world.

 

Also, Paul refers to the highest cadre as wicked spirits in the heavenly places (Ephesians 6:12 AMP).  These set up their thrones and operate in the heavenly places; they control large dominions, rule over nations and regions. They also control the affairs of men who yield themselves to the devil. But as you study Ephesians 2:6, youobserve that you’ve been raised together with, and made to sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. You’re seated with Christ, far above all principality and power and every organization of the adversary. That means you’re superior to even the highest ranking demons!

 

Realize that you occupy the place of authority in Christ, far above satan and everything that’s connected to him. Satan is a defeated foe, who’s been stripped of all power, influence and dominion.  So, it doesn’tmatter if he assigns himself or his demons to monitor your activities and try to ruin things for you, they’ve been programmed to fail! In Christ, you defeated satan and all his demons and overcame all the manipulative and evil structures of the world set up by him. Colossians 2:15 (MSG) describes the current dismal and completely powerless state of satan and his cohorts after what Jesus did to them:“He stripped all the spiritual tyrants in the universe of their sham authority at the Cross and marched them naked through the streets.”

 

So for you as a child of God, the devil and his demons don’t count, so never be afraid of them. Not only has Jesus given you power and authority to cast out devils (Mark 16:17), He also made you superior to satan and his demons. So you shouldn’t have a care in the world about satan and his evil structure and activities in the earth, for you’re seated with Christ in the place of power, “far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: (Ephesians 1:21).

 

Confession

 

I am seated together with Christ in the heavenly realms, far above principalities and powers, where I reign and rule as a king in this life. I live in dominion over sin, sickness and infirmities, and I’ve overcome the world!
