Reigning in Christ

I am sharing some insight into what I call the Eagle Christian. I pray they inspire and challenge you to mount up on eagle’s wings and place our trust and faith in God. Enjoy.


Beloved, you were created to reign in life. You were not created to just make it. You were created to reign over every situation you face.  Yet, many Christian believers live lives defeated and dejected.

When the Scripture makes reference to an ‘eagle,’ it is referring to the Golden Eagle or the Imperial Eagle.  As the name “Golden” implies divinity to the eagle, it also implies to the “Eagle Christian” we have a divine nature.

“For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises in order that by them you might become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust.  2 Peter 1:4

The name imperial also has some very strong implications. Imperial means “having supreme authority.”  The eagle’s strength, speed, and majesty gives him dominion over all the birds and the authority to rule over the heavens.  As Eagle Christians we have been given the authority to rule the earth.

From the beginning, God gave Adam dominion to rule and reign in the earth. Yet, sin destroyed our ability to reign. Nevertheless, the last Adam, Jesus Christ, through His death and resurrection, restored our ability to reign and restored our power to have dominion. Our ability is not in ourselves but through Him and in Him. Outside of Christ, our ability to reign become impotent.

The Word of God declares:

“ . . . those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign as kings in life through the one, Jesus Christ.”  Romans 5:17

Presidents don’t reign. Prime Ministers do not reign. Judges don’t reign. Mayors don’t reign. Congressmen and Senators do not reign. Only two groups of people reign: kings and us as believers!

Whatever you are facing to day, know you can rule and reign in the situation.  Begin using your power and your authority through Christ to have dominion over your circumstances.  Lift up your head and kick defeat our the door.  Move from praying to speaking to your affairs and turn them around using the power and the authority of Jesus’ name.

Don’t back down.  Stand still and see God move on your behalf.  You are royalty.  Don’t carry on like a pauper.  Hold your head up high because the King of kings is your daddy.  Rule and reign today.
