“That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection” (Phil. 3:10).
Paul was actually praying in Ephesians that the Church would receive revelation knowledge of spiritual things. If you’ve been praying the Ephesian prayers for yourself, as I’ve suggested, you know that Paul wanted the believers at Ephesus to know: The exceeding greatness of his power to us who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, 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. (Eph. 1:19-21)
There was such a manifestation of the divine omnipotence of God’s power in raising Jesus from the dead that it is actually the mightiest working of God! And God wants us to know what happened when this occurred.
The resurrection was opposed by all the tremendous powers of the air. These evil forces endeavored to defeat the plan of God. But these powers were overthrown by our Lord Jesus Christ, and He has been enthroned far above them, ruling with the authority of the Most High. Thus, the source of our authority is found in this resurrection and seating of Christ by God.
Confession: The Power that raised Jesus from the dead is the Corporation behind the authority!
