Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and made him to sit at his right hand in the heavenly places. Ephesians 1.20.

The meaning of the ascension of the Lord Jesus is that God has given Him a place higher than all the powers of Satan. His heavenly place is an overcoming position above Satan. The latter is now under His feet, with no further opportunity to attack Him; for He now is the Lord and Head over all things.

The Lord himself is now leading His own people to take this heavenly position with Him so that they may shine for Him on the one hand and overcome the powers of darkness which attack them on the other hand. Just as the light of the sun overcomes darkness, so the heavenly position of Christ overcomes the powers of darkness. And just as the moon and stars dwell with the sun in heaven, so Christians abide with Christ in the heavenly places.
