Ephesians 1:17-23 AMP

For I always pray to the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, that He may grant you a spirit of wisdom and revelation of insight into mysteries and secrets in the deep and intimate knowledge of Him,

By having the eyes of your heart flooded with light, so that you can know and understand the hope to which He has called you, and how rich is His glorious inheritance in the saints (His set-apart ones),

And (so that you can know and understand) what is the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His power in and for us who believe, as demonstrated in the working of His mighty strength,

Which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His (own) right hand in the heavenly (places),

Far above all rule and authority and power and dominion and every name that is named (above every title that can be conferred), not only in this age and in this world, but also in the age and the world which are to come.

And He has put all things under His feet and has appointed Him the universal and supreme Head of the church (a Headship exercised throughout the church),

Which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all (for in that body lives the full measure of Him who makes everything complete, and Who fills everything everywhere with Himself.

There is a revelation here that Paul is praying that the Church should have. The New Creation is one with Christ in His resurrection because He is in Christ. The same ability of God that raised Jesus from death is at work in us. We are risen with Him. Glory!

Today, Jesus is seated at the Father’s right hand. He is the head. The head isn’t without the body. Everything is under His feet. The feet is part of the body.

Ephesians 5:30

For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

The one who feels he occupies the lowest part of the body is still above all principalities, powers, and every name that is named, not only in this world but also in the world to come.
