Revelation‬ ‭1:6

“and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.”
‭‭Revelation‬ ‭1:6‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Through Christ we have been made kings and priest in God's kingdom. This means that we will rule and reign with Him. That we have been given authority to declare His will and purposes into the earth. That we stand in the place of intercession before God's throne upon the earth for those who are lost and broken. For the priest under the old covenant were the mediator between God and His people. They would intercede for the people. Christ Jesus Himself is both our High Priest and our King eternal. We are created in His image and through the power of the Holy Spirit we are transformed and reflect His glory and majesty.

It is Christ alone who will have dominion and authority forever. If you knew nothing of God you would falsely believe that wickedness is in control. But God works mightily behind the scenes using all things to bring about His plans and purposes. What Satan fails to understand is he is only allowed to do what God allows him to do. He is limited because he is simply a created being. God knew he would rebel and the Lord knows His every scheme and purpose before it even enters his mind. God alone is fully in control and the more we understand this the more we are filled with and walk in God's perfect peace.
