Indeed, as the Father then replied to the risen and ascended and thenenthroned Messiah: "Ask of Me, and I shall give You the Heathen as Your inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the Earth for Your possession! You shall [rule or] break them with a rod of iron. You shall dash them into pieces, like a potter's vessel"521 or brittle earthenware.
As also the Apostle John affirmed, after the death of the Messiah, the Latter "was caught up to God and to His throne." For, henceforth as the great Provider He "was to rule [or shepherd and feed] all Nations."504
O Christian! Our Saviour has overcome the Devil, and also the latter's tool Pagan Rome. And now, from His celestial throne on high precisely as the Son of man, our Saviour henceforth rules the Universe yes, rules the whole Universe including even our own World as part of that Universe.
