What Does Ephesians 1:21 Mean?

far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come.

Ephesians 1:21(NASB)

Verse Thoughts

God's gracious promises towards His children and the surpassing greatness of His mighty power towards all who believe in Him, is the confident hope that we have in Christ Jesus our Lord, which was accomplished when God raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand on heaven's glorious throne.

Christ's position and Christ power is far about every creature and all that has ever been created - far more excellent than all angelic beings or every mortal man - far superior to all principalities and power, all rulers and princes, all might and dominions, all that is visible and invisible - all that was and is and is to come.

There is no authority in heaven above, or in the earth below - nor in the waters that are beneath the firmament that can rival the sovereignty the HE commands. There is no other name but the name of Jesus before which every knee will one day bow in homage. There is no world or time or space that is beyond the reach of His supreme greatness - there is no length or breadth or depth or height that can match His eternal glory.

This is Jesus our Saviour - who took our punishment of the cross so that we all who believe on Him would not perish but have eternal life - praise His holy name.

My Prayer

How we praise and thank You Father that our Lord Jesus Christ, has been given all power and authority over all that was and is and is to come, and that NONE can pluck me out of Your hand. Give me a deeper understanding of what Christ has done and may I worship in grateful thanks from this day forward, even for evermore in His name I pray, AMEN.
