And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church – Ephesians 1:22
1 Corinthians 15:25, talking about the Lord Jesus, says, “For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.” This isn’t about Jesus reigning in heaven; rather, it’s about Him reigning in the earth. Legally, God has put all things under the feet of Jesus (Ephesians 1:22). Isaiah 9:6 says, “…and the government shall be upon his shoulder….” This is so powerful, because it introduces our connection to it. If He had said, “and the government shall be upon His head,” that would have meant the Lord Jesus, because He’s the head, and we’re His body.
Therefore, the government being upon His shoulders means His reign, His rulership and authority, is upon the Church; it’s borne by us. Halleluiah! This means even if you were the least in the Church—the last little toe of the foot—you’re still above all things, because all things have been placed under the feet of Jesus. This is a settled fact in heaven. God already said so, and nothing can change it. The Lord Jesus, through the Church, must reign over all things.
What this means is that in these last days, you’re expected to arise, take up the arms of faith, and be strengthened in the things of God. Speak the Word with boldness and see it come to pass. The world and the fullness thereof have been given to you. Therefore, be bold to possess the earth, because the rulership is in your hands. Exercise dominion and take charge of your life; command every contrary storm to be calm in the Name of Jesus! Refuse to be sick, poor, or defeated. Rule over circumstances.

I’m what God says I am. Christ in me is my victory and glory in this life! I’m a member of His body, of His flesh and of His bones, ruling, reigning, and prevailing with Christ over the world and circumstances! Greater is He that’s in me than he that’s in the world.
