When Satan stole that authority from man, because of Adam’s sin , God already had a plan to restore that authority. From the very moment of Adam’s sin, our Father declared to the serpent Satan, that God’s ‘seed’ “…shall bruise your head…” (Gen 3:15), meaning Jesus’ death and resurrection would literally take back that authority.
This all came to pass as written in Romans 5:17 “…surely will those who receive [God’s] overflowing grace (unmerited favor) and the free gift of righteousness [putting them into right standing with Himself] reign as kings in life through the one Man Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One).”
Grace (unmerited favor) and righteousness (right standing with God) belongs to us because of Jesus. Therefore, through Jesus, there is no maybe we will, or wish we could, or I hope so. Reigning in life is secure and an absolute…WE WILL!
Tomorrow we will talk further about what this all means to us as believers.
