And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places (Ephesians 1:19-20).

When God raised Jesus from the dead, He set Him at His own right hand, “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).

Right hand in Scripture means the place or seat of power. It’s like you say, “Jim is my right-hand man”; it means Jim represents and speaks for you; you’ve given him your authority. Jesus being seated at God’s right hand means He’s seated in the seat of power; God operates through Him. That’s amazing!

But then we observe something remarkable about the infinite expanse of Jesus’ dominion. His dominion surpasses all levels and hierarchies of power. It’s “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). Blessed be God!

The Lord Jesus reigns supreme in this world as it is now and also in the ages to come. He holds unmatched authority over all things, and His Name stands above every title. Praise God! The Amplified translation renders it beautifully. It says Jesus is far above “…every title that can be conferred], not only in this age and in this world, but also in the age and the world which are to come” (AMPC).

The New Living Translation emphasizes something even more interesting; it says, “…he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else in this world or in the world to come.” In other words, call them whatever you want—the superiority of the Lord Jesus is undeniable—transcending all persons, all limits and all boundaries.

That’s the Lord Jesus Christ in whom you believe and whose birth is celebrated at this time all around the world. His authority knows no bounds and has no equal. His power extends throughout eternity. Hallelujah!

Dear Father, I’m in awe of your mighty power, which was demonstrated when you raised Jesus from the dead and set Him at your right hand in the heavenly places, far above all levels and hierarchies of power, dominion and every title or name. Thank you, for I’m seated with Him in this glorious place of power and authority and have become his operational headquarters in the earth. Amen.

|| Colossians 2:9-10

For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. 10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: ||

|| Philippians 2:9-11
Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of [things] in heaven, and [things] in earth, and [things] under the earth; 11 And [that] every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ [is] Lord, to the glory of God the Father. ||

|| Hebrews 1:1-3
God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by [his] Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; 3 Who being the brightness of [his] glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; ||
