Aspects of the Ascended Christ

Mark 16:19 So then the Lord Jesus, after speaking to them, was taken up into heaven and sat at the right hand of God. Acts 2:33 Therefore having been exalted to the right hand of God… 36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made Him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you have crucified. Phil 2:9 Therefore also God highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, 11 And every tongue should openly confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father

The Slave-Savior's ascension for His exaltation by God was a sign of God's acceptance of all He had done for God's eternal plan according to God's New Testament economy (Acts 2:33-36). In this exaltation God crowned Him with glory and honor (Heb. 2:9), gave Him the name that is above all names (Phil. 2:9), and made Him the Lord of all (Acts 2:36) and the Head over all things (Eph. 1:22), that He may have all authority in heaven and on earth (Matt. 28:18) to rule over the heavens, the earth, and the nations so that they may work together for the universal spreading of His gospel. Through His ascension Christ has been exalted to the highest, He has been made the Lord, the Christ, the Head of the church, and the Head over all things to the church. Furthermore, He has been enthroned, crowned with glory and honor and given a name that is above all names. In order to experience Jesus as the Lord. the Christ, the Head of the church, the Head over all, and the One enthroned, crowned, and given a name above all names, we need to be in resurrection. When we are in the reality of resurrection, we are in the life-giving Spirit. In the Spirit we experience the resurrected Christ as the Lord, the anointed One, and the Head of everything to the church and the Head directly of the church. When we are in such a Spirit, all these aspects of Christ's ascension are not merely doctrines to us--they are realities. (c) Living Stream Ministry.
