Our Superiority In Christ


Our Superiority In Christ – Pst Chris

Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life? (1 Corinthians 6:3).

The Bible says we shall judge angels and we’re also going to judge the world: “…Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world…” (1 Corinthians 6:2). “Does this mean that the Christian is superior to the angels of God?” Emphatically yes. We’re superior in the sense of our identity with Christ.

Moreover, we’re going to be seated with Christ to judge the world of the ungodly and also fallen angels, angels who didn’t obey God. Now, the angels that obeyed God don’t need to be judged; but we’re superior to them nonetheless. It’s the reason we’re not to worship angels or pray to them or through them. The Christian is one with Christ: “But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit” (1 Corinthians 6:17). We’re joint-heirs with Christ. We’re God’s children, born of His Spirit, through the Word. And the angels are
His servants. John 8:35 says, “And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.” It should be noted, however, that angels have supernatural power, whilst we have authority over them in the Name of Jesus.

Hebrews 1:13-14 says, “But to which of the angels said he at any time, sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?” God’s holy angels are always at your service. They minister on your behalf; they wait on you to do whatever you want them to do that’s consistent with the word of God. When you give the Word, they go into action to ensure what you say comes pass.

The reason is because the angels are subject to Jesus Christ; they listen to and obey Him, and we’re in Him (2 Corinthians 5:17). Our superiority over angels, Satan, and circumstances is the result of our oneness with the Lord. Live and walk in the consciousness of your righteousness and authority in Christ, and the triumphant life you have received.

PRAYER
Dear Father, I thank you for bringing me into oneness with you. I take advantage of this oneness to rule and dominate my world. Only your counsel stands sure in my life and environment. Thank you Lord for the ministry of angels on my behalf, and my superiority over the devil and his cohorts. Greater is He that’s in me, than he that’s in the world. Amen.
