Matt 28:18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. (19) Go therefore and disciple all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
[Part 2 of 3] The fact that Christ is now in ascension means not only that He is in the heavens; it also means that He has power and authority. In His ascension Christ has all the power and all the authority in the universe. According to Matthew 28:18, the resurrected Christ said to His disciples, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth." Therefore, with such authority and power in His ascension the Lord is very active. What is He doing? The Lord, as the ascended One, is carrying out His universal and eternal propagation. Who can explain why the earth today is filled with Christians? Why are there so many believers in the world? Great men have tried to gain control of the earth, but they have failed. Hitler, for example, tried to do this, but eventually he lost everything. Napoleon, after he had been defeated, reportedly looked up to the heavens and confessed that Jesus had beaten him. Napoleon admitted that even though the Lord Jesus did not fight, He gained everything. The point here is that the whole earth is in the hands of the undefeatable One, and this One is carrying out His propagation. As the ascended Christ is carrying out His propagation, His main work is not fighting. Instead of fighting, the ascended Lord's work is mainly propagating Himself throughout the earth. We all are part of Christ's propagation. We have been produced by the resurrected Christ in His ascension.
