The Safest Place To Be

Is the enemy at Jesus’ footstool?
Is the enemy at our footstool?
 
Ephesians 1:20-23  – which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated at His right hand in the heavenly, far above principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. And He put all under His feet, and gave Him head over all to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all. 

Jesus is Lord and all principalities and powers, which is the enemy, is His footstool right now. Jesus is at the right hand now way up in heaven and He has given the church, His body, all power and dominion over the enemy! His body, us, the church, is seated with Christ far above the powers of the ruler of this world. He has raised us up together with Him and made us sit in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Therefore, our enemy is at our feet. The safest place to be for a believer in Christ is at the Throne of Grace seated with Him at the right hand of the Father. We are seated with Him NOW and the devil CANNOT touch us. We need to believe we are there and abide there because the bible says we are. Ephesians 2:7

Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.  Col. 3:1 NASB

Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand. Col 3:1 NLT

The safest place to be is knowing that you are seated with Christ in heaven far above the dark powers of this world!
