The other day I was reading the book of Daniel and I came across a very interesting verse. And it taught a very important message and a very interesting perspective on the Kingdom of God.
This sentence is by the decree of the angelic watchers And the decision is a command of the holy ones, In order that the living may know That the Most High is ruler over the realm of mankind, And bestows it on whom He wishes And sets over it the lowliest of men.”Daniel 4:17 NASB
In this verse, we can see that the realm of heaven has authority over men. In this verse we are put in our place. We may be the apex and alpha here on earth, but in heaven it is a different story. So as I pondered this I felt a sense of helplessness. Like humans were simply pawns in a game. But Jesus tells a different story.
You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.Acts 10:38 NASB
See God gave a human the authority to rule over the heavenlies. He gave that authority to Jesus. And with that power he began a war against the Kingdom of Darkness, to free humanity. This may all sound fantastical and like it should be in a Hollywood movie, but it is true. There is a spiritual war going on across the creation, a war for control. And it used to be that humans were simply pawns in the war, but now we have power.
I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven.”Matthew 16:19 NASB
Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you.Luke 10:19 NASB
Like in Daniel, we used to be ruled by heaven. But now we have been given the keys to heaven. We have been given authority over the heavens, when it used to be that they ruled over us.
Then Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the midst of his brothers; and the Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon David from that day forward. And Samuel arose and went to Ramah.1 Samuel 16:13 NASB
And just like Samuel had anointed David to be King of Israel, we too have been anointed with the Holy Spirit that we may have authority over the Kingdom of Heaven. Walk in that authority as Children of God and bring forth the Kingdom of God.
