God is high above all rule and authority

God raised Jesus and "Seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come." Ephesians 1:20,21

God is much higher than all rule, power, government, Satan, worldly people and godly people. Above everything and every one. Significantly higher. He is the one to worship and to stand in awe of. He is full of beauty, majesty and might.

"God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus." Ephesians 2:6

Just as God raised Jesus and seated him at his right hand high above all rule and authority, He also raised us above all rule and authority. Satan is subject to us, and in spiritual warfare, we have to know our rightful position. It is with God who places everything under Jesus's feet and also ours.

We do not lord it over others, and we still have to give honour to whom honour is due, render to Caesar what is Caesar's and God what is God's as Jesus advises. But when Satan and the worldly rise up against us, we have authority in faith to place them in subjection to us. The spiritual part in us is greater than the spiritual part in them.

Michael, your writing here has an excellent teaching for those who may not know who they are in Christ Jesus, or who forget who they are, good job! Now, technically, it needs tightening up in the spelling department..."authority" is misspelling in your title, along with Christ spelled "Chrust". Early in your writing you list your scripture reference with computer jargon, Ephesians 1.20,21...instead of the written form Ephesians 1:20-21 (that's done a little later with the other reference)...it's just an easier format for readers to stick with the 1:20-21 format. In a sentence that states "God what is God" almost sounds like a question when you first read it because it's missing an 's ..."God what is God's". This article shows a good mindset, sharp in pointing out that which is truly important in scripture...with just a little correction, your writing will be outstanding! Hopefully, you are writing a blog, sharing your work somewhere!
