“Who is even at the right hand of God.” Romans 8:34 ( KJV)
He who was once despised and rejected by men now occupies the honorable position of a beloved and honored Son. The right hand of God is the place of majesty and favor. Our Lord Jesus is His people’s representative. When He died for them they had rest. He rose again for them, and they had liberty. When He sat down at His Father’s right hand, they had favor, and honor, and dignity.
The raising and elevation of Christ is the elevation, the acceptance, the enshrinement, the glorifying of all His people, because He is their head and representative. Jesus sitting at the right hand of God, then, is to be viewed as the acceptance of the Representative, and therefore, the acceptance of our souls. My friend, see in this your assured freedom from condemnation. Who shall condemn the men who are in Jesus at the right hand of God?
The right hand is the place of power. Christ at the right hand of God has all power in heaven and on earth. Who will fight against the people who have such power vested in their Captain? My friend, what can destroy you if Omnipotence is your helper? If the armour of the Almighty covers you, what sword can smite you? Rest secure. Jesus is your all-prevailing King, treading your enemies beneath His feet, vanquishing sin, death, and hell, and being your perfect representative. If this is so, there is no possibility that you will ever be destroyed.
“Jesus, tremendous name puts all our foes to flight
Jesus, the meek, the angry Lamb, a Lion is in fight.
By all hell’s host withstood; We all hell’s host overthrow
And conquering them, through Jesus’ blood, we still to conquer go.”
Question: What areas of your life do you need to give God power over?
