According to the book of Ephesians, there are six things God did for Christ
20 Which he wrought in Christ when he raised him from the dead and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world but also in that which is to come:
22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,
23 Which is his body, the fullness of him that filleth all in all.
Ephesians 1:20-23 (KJV)
- God Gave him the headship of the church: He is the head and the church is body, Jesus Christ is the Head of all Principalities, power, might, dominion, every name that is named in this world and the world to come.
But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man, and the head of Christ is God. 1 Corinthians 11:3 KJV
“And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead so that in everything he might have the supremacy.” Colossians 1:18, NIV
- Raised Him from the dead: God raised Jesus Christ from the dead on the third day ( 1 Corinthians 15:1-23 ), Now he is seated at the right hand of the father.
Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. Romans 8:34
This was now the third time Jesus appeared to his disciples after he was raised from the dead. John 21:14 (NIV)
- Exalted Him at His Own Right Hand: God has highly exalted Jesus Christ and He seated at his own right hand
Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:9-11 (NIV)
Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Colossians 3:1 NIV
- God has given him all authority over all powers, good and evil, under himself:
The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him, all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead so that in everything he might have the supremacy. Colossians 1:15-18 (NIV)
“and in Christ, you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority” Colossians 2:10 NIV
- God Gave him a name above every name
“Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they” Hebrews 1:1-4 (KJV)
- God put all things under His Feet
You made them a little lower than the angels; you crowned them with glory and honour and put everything under their feet.”
In putting everything under them, God left nothing that is not subject to them. Yet at present, we do not see everything subject to them. Hebrews 2: 7-8
