Chief Ruler

Extract and comment from Revelation Chp. 3:14 


And unto the angel of the Church in the (a)Laodiceans write; These things saith (b)The Amen the faithful and true Witness, (c)the beginning/Chief ruler of the creation of God. 

(c)  “Beginning and Chief ruler of the creation of God", (Col. 1:15-19, Prov. 8:22-31 & Rev. 4:11).  The fact of Christ's existence before the overthrow (“creation”), also gives meaning and understanding to the fact that Christ-ones were "known before the foundation of the world", (Eph. 1:4).  That He as "Chief ruler", is part of His function through to the handing back to the Father of the completed work (1Cor. 15:24).  The completed work is profound, and entails the binding of the great Enemy Satan, the banishment of the demons, ruling with "a rod of iron" the nations of the world, and via. Michael the arc-angel, defeating Satan’s last attempt to corrupt the world and its peoples, and Israel.  All creation will be witness to these events in Heaven and on Earth.  They will see the triumph of the Father's Love in Christ as "all in all".
