Spiritual Strength For Each Day

“And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him that filleth all in all” (Ephesians 1:22-23).

Notice the word “all” in this text: “all things” twice and “all in all.” We see here that the triumph of our Lord was portrayed in His ascension. Yes, the ascension of the Lord was the concluding triumph over all the power of Satan. Let us look into the deep and glorious significance of this event. His descent came to an end when He ascended. The Lord’s ascension fulfilled His Word, “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name” (Philippians 2:9).  When we are crowned with glory, it will be because we humbled ourselves in the Lord Jesus Christ. The glorious significance of the ascension of the Lord Jesus is revealed to us in the epistle to the Ephesians, “He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things” (4:10). This means that the ascension of the Lord was the concluding fulfillment of the prophecies of His first coming in the Old Testament. In the same way, the prophecies concerning His second coming will also be fulfilled. What a wonderful promise. How can we be sad when the ascension of the Lord guarantees His return?!
