Heb 2:5 ¶ For it was not to angels that He gave authority over that world to be, of which we are speaking.
6 For someone somewhere has solemnly said: “What is man that you should think of him, Or the Son of Man that you should care for Him?
7 You made Him inferior to angels for a little while, Yet you have crowned Him with glory and honor, You have set Him over the works of your hands,
8 You have put all things under His feet!” Now when He gave Him authority over everything, He did not leave a single thing that was not put under His authority. But as yet we do not see everything actually under His authority,
Today we hear so much about the new world order and the coming of the Antichrist. In the scriptural account above, the writer of Hebrews tells us that the born again regenerated man has authority “over that world to be”.
“World” in verse five is the rare Greek word “oikoumene” which describes our globe in the sense of its being inhabited by people. It is the world where life with its differing cultures, languages, habits, blessings, conflicts and disease is dynamically occurring.
As we proceed further through the verse we find the words “to be”. In the Greek this is the verb “mello”; “to come.” This verb is in the present active participle tense which simply describes an event as continuously and constantly coming or arriving without pause or interruption.
The kingdom of God comes to us in exactly this same way in Hebrews 6:5.
Hebrews 6:5 and have experienced how good God’s message is and the mighty powers of the age to come, (mello) (present active participle).
The author of Hebrews tells us that the regenerated man in Christ is to exercise continual authority for the glory of God over the affairs of our inhabited planet as he encounters them from moment to moment.
In verse five, the words “He gave authority” and in verse eight the words “He gave Him authority” is the Greek word “hupotasso”. This verb is really a military term signifying absolute hierarchical or rank subjection. An army private is in subjection to a sergeant who is in subjection to a captain who is in subjection to a general who is in subjection to the president. Demons are subjected to believers in this fashion.
Luke 10:20: However, you must stop rejoicing over the fact that the spirits are submitting (hupotasso) to you, but continue to rejoice that your names are enrolled in heaven.
The believer through the loving authority of Jesus Christ is called to bring the normally and abnormally transpiring events of our inhabitable globe into constant subjection to the will and the kingdom of Christ.
I just realized that it is not the Antichrist who is supposed to bring a New World order, but it is the believer in Christ who is supposed to do so. Even the Antichrist system as part of the habitable word is militarily subjected to the believer in the will of Christ who can find total success and victory in it.
From this moment on I am repenting of saying that the secular system is exercising a new world order.
From now on, I will confess, declare and do that I will exercise a New World Order (The order of the kingdom and will of God) in all the events, difficulties, blessings and hindrances which come my way.
You must do the same. Hallelujah!
