GOD HAD DELEGATED EARTHLY AUTHORITY TO MAN!
The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s; but the earth He has given to the children of men (Psalms 115:16).
The word, “Delegate” simply means the transfer or arrogation of power to another. In the beginning, God transferred and arrogated His earthly authority to man in order for him to dominate and subdue the earth. But man through the spirit of disobedience, transferred and arrogated his authority to Satan and became subject to him. The Bible says in the opening text that the heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s; but the earth He has given to the children of men.
But thank God for Jesus Christ who came to obtain that same lost authority from Satan. No wonder the Bible says in Matthew 28:18, “And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.” Jesus Christ now has the authority both in heaven and on earth; hence, the authority of God and also the authority of man. That is why at the mention of His Name, every knee shall bow in heaven and on earth (Philippians 2:10).
However, Jesus Christ further delegated this same authority back to man but to those who believe in His Name. That is why the Bible says in John 1:12, “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.” The Adamic authority which man lost to Satan as a result of disobedience, Jesus Christ reclaimed it from him and gave it back to the Christians who are the rightful children of God.
Daily Tip: Jesus Christ had delegated His earthly authority to you as a Christian; therefore, exercise your authority in Christ and do not lose it again the second time. Shalom!
Golden Text: And so it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit (1 Corinthians 15:45).
