ALL things

You know over the past few weeks my pastor has been emphasizing on the scripture of putting the whole armor of God which can be found in Ephesians chapter 6. And of course my goal has been to really fix my focus on this teaching and go all the way in, which I still will; however the Holy Spirit had something else placed in my heart and had me read the book of Ephesians from the very beginning. The book of Ephesians is legit one of the books in the Bible that will have you addicted I mean Apostle Paul was probably at his peak with this book and I a hundred and ten percent encourage you to read this incredible book, anyway back to the book; Ephesians chapter 1 verse 20-23.

The scripture reads from the latter part of verse 19; This power working in us is the same as the mighty strength which He (God the Father) used when He raised Christ from death AND seated Him at His right side in the Heavenly world. Christ rules there above ALL heavenly rulers, authorities, powers, and lords; Jesus has a title superior to ALL titles of authority in this world and in the next. God put ALL things under Christ’s feet and gave him to the church as supreme Lord over ALL things. The church is Christ’s body, the completion of Him who Himself completes ALL things everywhere. This comes from the Good News translation and excites me particularly at how frequently ALL is mentioned.

ALL is a small word with such an enormous meaning, it is not definitive, it is all inclusive and does not have a full stop. It is incredible what the Holy Spirit reveals in this scripture in that Christ defeated death by this Power which can be seen from the chapter it speaks of the Holy Spirit being this Power right, so this power raised Jesus from the dead and additionally placed Him at the right side of God the Father in heavenly places. The juicy detail is that this Power is also working in us but an even juicier detail is that Christ has been given the Glory and really the responsibility over there He is not just chilling.

His responsibility includes being ruler over ALL heavenly rulers, authorities, powers, lords and has a title superior to ALL titles of authority in this world and the next and ALL things have been put under His feet by God the Father, to the church He is supreme Lord over ALL things and completes ALL things everywhere. This Jesus has been given Glory over all things by God the Father this means that even in my life I have the priviledge of surrendering ALL things including life itself over to Him and He will take care of it all since He is ruler above all things. I can give Jesus my emotions, feelings, my fears and doubts and He will not even shy away from being Lord over my shame as well because the WORD views Him as supreme over ALL things, it did not limit Him. I can say “In the name of Jesus” in the middle of the night when I experience attacks from the enemy and those attacks would seize instantly because Jesus is ruler above ALL, ALL has to bow down to Jesus, ALL has no choice!

I am amazed at how awesome God is really, and at the end of this beautiful scripture in verse 23 God has the audacity to say ” the church is Christ’s body, the completion of Him who Himself completes ALL things everywhere!!!

Lord I am done, I hope this scripture blesses someone else like it blessed me in Jesus’ Name.
