The Bible teaches that Christ now sits on the right hand of God. Thus also according to His human nature, with His divine almighty power, He rules and fulfills all things. In a very special way He rules and protects His Church on earth.

The right hand of God does not mean some confined area or place, but the eternal, endless, divine power, rule and majesty, through which He influences, governs and fills all things.

And hath put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be the head over all things to the Church.
