If this is so, then where do the scriptures tell us Jesus is? Well, Ephesians 1:15-23 says, “For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.” (The italics and bold are my emphasis.) Jesus is seated at the right hand of the Father in heaven. Not only is He seated there but also Paul is praying that we would get a revelation of that fact.
Paul addressed the church in Colossians 3:1-2 with the same truth. “Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” Where is Christ seated? What is our mind supposed to be set upon? Things above! We need to embrace a new perspective of the world and life – God’s perspective. It is essentially for Christians who desire to live a life pleasing to Him and one of victory in Christ that we understand where He is and what that does for us.
