Westminster Larger Catechism: Question 54

Question 54

How is Christ exalted in his sitting at the right hand of God?

Christ is exalted in his sitting at the right hand of God, in that as God-man he is advanced to the highest favour with God the Father, (Phil. 2:9) with all fulness of joy, (Acts 2:28, Ps. 16:11) glory, (John 17:5) and power over all things in heaven and earth; (Eph. 1:22, 1 Pet. 3:22) and does gather and defend his church, and subdue their enemies; furnishes his ministers and people with gifts and graces, (Eph. 4:10–12, Ps. 110) and makes intercession for them. (Rom. 8:34)
