Do We Legislate or Administrate from the Heavens?

There have been questions about whether we administrate or legislate from the heavenlies. The answer is, “both!” However, the confusion comes in the use of the words.

leg·is·late lejəˌslāt
1. to make or enact laws.

verb (used with object), administrated, administrating.
1. to administer.

For the most part, we are called to administer the laws, powers, authority, etc. that God has already put in place. We have been given power and authority to rule and reign. But, we have yet to fully administer the laws and authority He has given us.

We seldom are involved in making new laws in the heavens at this time. I didn’t say we don’t, but I have yet to find a time or situation when God has had me make a new law. But I am constantly aware that I need to administer the laws that are already there.

Hope that helps.
