Where is God? Where am I?

Yeah, I know what you’re thinking, is this guy a moron? God is everywhere. Well, yes and no. Yes, indeed He is omnipresent, but the Bible explicitly states He is seated with Christ. So where is Christ seated?


Well, according to the Word, at the right hand of God. So, where are you and why does this even matter? It doesn’t unless living in fear of the all-powerful Satan and his legions of demons seem somewhat appealing to you.


The purpose of this article is to remind you and I exactly what the answers are to the preceding questions.


You see my location or rather position in Christ or God whichever way you care to look at it significantly affects the confidence you have as you journey through the Christian life. If I fail to understand my position in Christ, which of course makes Satan very happy, I open myself up to lies and deceit concerning the authority with which I am able to not only defend the faith but also miss the opportunity to go on the offensive on behalf of the faith.


So back to the question, where am I? Well, on earth, yes, but we need to attempt to grasp that this is a temporal and physical reality we are experiencing. The where that really counts concerns the spirit man, where I am hidden in Christ, seated with Him, present tense, in heavenly places.


Do we understand exactly how this is possible? No! Does it make it less of a reality? No! So, I am at all times seated with Christ and the Father, even though my physical body functions here on earth. My authority comes from the Godhead: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.


It was Jesus who stated in Matthew 20:18-20 that all authority has been given unto Him on earth and in heaven, then in light of that authority He sends us out promising to be with us always.

Paul later explains all these statements better, but if you can take anything away from this article, then know this: you have authority over even Satan himself based on the completed work of Christ. It is with the authority of Jesus we resist the works of the evil one, and it is with the authority of Jesus that we journey fearlessly throughout the Christian life.


I am not afraid of the devil, nor do I pay attention to the futility with which his minions attempt to cause me harm. I have received from Jesus through the working of the Holy Spirit the keys to loosen and bind and I implore you to do the same.


Refrain from allowing the devil more glory than he deserves, and when you encounter him or any of the filth that associates themselves with him, take up your authority, your position in Christ and send them back to the hell they belong in.


Let the true sons and daughters of God arise and break every spiritual chain in the name that is above every other name, the name of Jesus.
