Take Your Seat

Take Your Seat

Text: Hebrews 10:11-14
Memory verse:
“But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God,” ‭‭Hebrews 10‬:‭12‬

‭‬‬The finished work of Christ means that Jesus has already done everything He is going to do about the devil, your righteousness and your victory in life and no more. It is not that ‘He will do it or He is doing it’ Jesus said, “… “It is finished!” John‬ ‭19‬:‭30‬. It is a past tense. This is what Hebrews 10:12 means. “But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God.” ‭‭Yes, after winning the battle against satan and rising from death, He sat down having paid in full. Unlike the Levitical high priest who couldn’t sit down because the work was never done (Heb 10:11). In fact, there was no seat in the temple!
So, sitting down alludes to Jesus’ authority and triumph over His enemies.We are the Body of Christ and He is the Head. You are a member of that Body. Like the Siamese twins, we share His life, His righteousness, His victory and His authority. God made us sit together in the heavenly places (Eph 2:6). Yes, if you have placed your trust in His works, you have a seat at His right hand. Hallelujah! However, before you can stand against the devil, you must learn to take your place in the finished work of Christ – moving away from the natural and climbing up in the Spirit to your rightful seat with Christ. You must see yourself sitting with Christ in the heavenly places, far above satan and satan far below you. Without this perspective, you can’t successfully stand against satan’s wiles.

Prayer points
1. I take my seat in the heavenly places with Christ and with my reclaimed authority, I stand against the devil in Jesus name.
2. I declare my victory over all evil works as I rest on Christ’s finished works in Jesus name.

Today’s declarations
1. As I resist satan, I see the disarmed, defeated and disgraced satan, a toothless bulldog and the recovered authority in my hand.
2. You give satan the most trouble when you sit down, so stop struggling.
