Reigning in Life

Reigning in Life
For if by one mans offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ. (Romans 5: 17)
Are you reigning in life or are you living defeated, sick, hopeless and helpless? Sad to say but most Christians think that our only hope of abundant life is in the hereafter, when we are gone from earth to heaven. Not so beloved! God’s intention from the very beginning was for man to reign on this earth in the authority of His life and word.
The bible tells us over and over that God gave dominion to man and we are to rule in the earth. Why do you think that you don’t like to be under some ones   thumb all the time? It is because you were made to reign!
Now we know that we live in a house of clay and that house is temporal because of sin. But we also see that God put all things under our feet. In order for our reigning to be we must also see Jesus! (Hebrew’s 2) Jesus came to redeem us to our proper place of ruler ship. When we are born again and filled with Gods Holy Spirit we receive power to be over comers and rulers. We are not to wait for the sweet by and by to enter this place of reigning; we are to begin our training as soon as we are born again.
All of our Bible studies, church services, prayer meetings, prophecies, spiritual gifts, etc. are to train us to reign. We are being trained when; We see Jesus as the one with all power in heaven and earth - When we see that we are His body and we are His head - When we see that at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus is Lord ( Philippine 2: 5-11) - When we see that greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world ( I John 4:4) - When we see that He hath made us to be more than conquerors through Jesus ( Romans 8:37).
Jesus said: “I appoint unto you a kingdom as my Father hath appointed unto me.” ( Luke 22:29) Nothing is to have dominion over us but our God. Sin is not to be excused or allowed to continue unchecked. It is to be put away by the power of our God in us. When sin reigns, death reigns. Some kind of death is working as long as some kind of sin goes unchecked and not dealt with. You don’t have to be in bondage to anything or anybody, not even the devil. You are to be above, not beneath - the head and not the tail. The kingdom of God is in you if you are born again and all the benefits of the kingdom come with it.
As the people of God we are to bring kingdom rule and authority to ourselves by the Word of God increasing our faith and the Holy Spirit empowering us. Then the kingdom rule is to come to our families, homes, jobs, into our part of the world which is to be influenced, changed, and governed by God’s Kingdom laws that bring: health, peace, victory, provision and on and on it goes.   As we, the ones that are reigning, begin to exercise ourselves in kingdom truths and appropriate those truths and the authority of God’s Kingdom into everything we have contact with, then God’s Kingdom will rule over all!
