“And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.” (Revelation 5:10 KJV)
The book of Romans 5:17 says: “For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one Jesus Christ.” Here, Paul is telling us what will enable us reign in life here on earth, not when we get to heaven. You are probably thinking that it is only in heaven you are going to reign, but the word of God says we are going to reign here on earth. You don’t need a car, house, husband or wife in heaven. This is because when you get there you will be preoccupied by one person, Jesus. Every eye will be focused on him and beholding his beauty from eternity to eternity. It will never end because every aspect of him is beautiful. That is why the angels keep on saying, holy, holy, holy. You will spend eternity beholding his unending beauty such that you will have no need for a house or gold. In fact, the gold you are wearing here is counterfeit compared to what obtains there. In heaven the streets are paved with gold, not of this earth but that which God himself fashioned.
Whilst you are still alive, God intends that you reign over the circumstances of your life. You are designed and packaged to reign over sickness, over disease, over pains, over agony, over frustration, over discouragement, over intimidation, over fear and over death. You are meant to reign over those things. But this is predicated on you receiving the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness he has given. You have to receive righteousness as a gift. It is not about what you did or didn’t do. When you receive it then you can reign.
Through knowledge shall the just be delivered. Today I release you to go and reign in every area of your life in Jesus name.
