How Jesus Reigns Today – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional December 2nd

(The Lord Reigns Through Us)

TO THE BIBLE: Colossians 2:15 ESV
“He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him.”

From our opening verse, we see that Jesus made a spectacle of Satan and his cohorts in hell. He spoiled principalities and powers and openly humiliated them. All the spirits of darkness saw this happen.

The Conybeare Translation says He disarmed them. Hallelujah! Now, He’s reigning over them and over all things.

1 Corinthians 15:25 says, “For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet.” Jesus is in Heaven, seated at the right hand of God, a place of power.

But then, how does He reign over His enemies? Romans 5:17 gives us an idea; it says, “For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.” He reigns through us! When we reign, He reigns!

And remember, the Bible tells us that grace reigns through righteousness: “So that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 5:21).

Thus, while we live for Him as His light, His grace works in and through us—His grace for reigning. Hallelujah!

Our job is well cut out for us: it’s to reign in the realm of life and display the virtues and perfections of Christ (1 Peter 2:9 AMPC).

This is why He wants us to learn and grow in His Word and put it to work. He wants us to run this world for Him, using the Name of Jesus.

We’re the light of the world, and we have overcome the adversary and all adversities; we win by the blessed Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Hallelujah!

I’ve received grace to reign and rule in life as a king. Therefore, I exercise dominion over circumstances, the devil, and his cohorts. Right now, in the Name of Jesus, I break the influence of Satan over the nations, over the peoples, over the leaders, and over the young ones all around the world! Christ reigns in the nations, and His righteousness fills the earth and mantles the hearts of men, for all souls belong to Him. Hallelujah!
