The Joint Sitting – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional April 21st

(Jesus’ Authority Has Been Extended To You)

TO THE BIBLE: Ephesians 2:6
“(God) raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.”

The expression, “sit together” in Ephesians 2:6 is from the Greek “sugkathizō” and it refers to a “joint sitting.” It’s a legal term, and it means Jesus’ authority has been extended to us; we’re using the same authority with Him.

Thus, everything Jesus utters is in our name, and everything we utter is in His Name. He doesn’t decide without us, and we don’t make a decision without Him. This is extremely profound!

Our joint sitting is heavenly, not earthly. It has been decided from on high. We are Jesus’ earthly legal representatives today. What we say on earth is endorsed by Him. Understanding this is critical.

It means that you can take a stand on God’s Word and effect a change on the basis of this understanding, and it will be approved by God.

Some believe that nothing will change until all Christians around the world band together to oppose Satan and his antics and deception.

But consider this: Our opening verse—Ephesians 2:6—was not written to the Corinthians, nor was it sent to the Thessalonians; they were most likely unaware of the information.

So, not every Christian had the same level of faith or knowledge then, nor do they now.

However, what God expects is that those of us who have come to maturity, who have the understanding of His Word and of the times, will take our stand and our place in Christ to keep Satan under our feet where he belongs. That’s what’s important.

With this kind of knowledge, you maintain control of things in your life, environment, and world. You nullify Satan’s plans and works and pull them down by the power of the living Christ. Don’t be troubled by what’s happening in the world today; use your authority in Christ.

You reign in Him and through Him over Satan, darkness, the world, and circumstances. Therefore, subdue your world.

Let nothing but Christ reign in your physical body, in your school, in your family, and in your world. Remember, you’re seated with Him in glory, with the same authority. Praise God forevermore!

The Lord Jesus is seated at the right hand of the Father, far above all principality, power, might, and dominion, and every name that is named, and I have joint sitting with Him! I’m seated with Him in glory. I reign in Him and through Him over Satan, darkness, the world, and circumstances. Hallelujah!
