BEHOLD THE HIGHLY EXALTED CHRIST
Philippians 2 vs
»»9. ¶Therefore God also has highly exalted Him, and given Him the name which is above every name. -[NKJV]«« ||
THE holy scripture makes it clear that Jesus was obedient unto death, even the death of the cross (Phil 2:8). Yes, Jesus Christ is NO MORE hanging on the cross. He is now seated on the right hand of God in glory. Your understanding of Jesus’ position will change your attitude of worship towards Him (Eph 1:20-23). It is true Jesus died on the cross, yet He did not remain there. Frankly, He was buried, yet did not remain in the grave. Verily, He resurrected, yet did not roam about on this earth (Mat 28:6).
He ascended to heaven and is highly seated and exalted on the right hand of God. (Acts 1:9/ 2:32,33). Notice, the Bible didn’t say ”the right hand- side”, but on the RIGHT HAND. The right hand means a place of power, honour and authority. To Jesus, the cross represented shame, suffering, condemnation, pain, curse, punishment, criminality etc, but He had to endure it for our sake (Heb 12:2; Gal 3:13). On the cross, He carried away all our sins, failures, sicknesses, diseases, curses etc. He said ‘it is finished’ (John 19:30). Hallelujah !
However, on the cross He was not glorified because all our sins were laid on him (Rom 3:23;1 Peter 2:24; Isaiah 53:4,5). But when He endured the cross, He was highly exalted by God with a Name above all names (Phil 2:8-10). While we are enjoying the benefits of the cross, let us also get the revelation that He is highly exalted and alive forevermore on the throne. Don’t limit His significance only to the cross. For He is now glorified being worshipped by countless angels. Colossians 3:1 says ”If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God”. Hallelujah!
Cherished one, stop seeing a ”condemned” Christ and see the glorified Christ full of glory, power and dominion (Luke 22:69)*. He is at the right hand of God to make intercession for the saints (Romans 8:34)._ No demon or Satan can stand a Christian with the ‘Highly Exalted Jesus Mentality’ because this reminds the devil of how defeated and powerless he has been. Don’t cry and feel sorry for Jesus because of His painful death, rather REJOICE evermore that He is now highly seated and exalted on the right hand of God and will soon come again to take us home. Hallelujah! ‘JESUS IS HIGHLY EXALTED” and He deserves all the worship and adoration. Walk in this revelation all your lifetime. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always. Amen!
Thank You Father for this glorious revelation. Thank You for sending Jesus to die on the cross, buried, resurrected and living for me now. He is highly exalted in every area of my life. By this revelation, I am enjoying all the benefits of the cross but more importantly experiencing the heavenly benefits as He sits on the right hand of God full of glory, power and majesty. Glory to Him forevermore. Amen !
Enjoy A Glorious Sunday !
