The Right Hand

Now let's consider how the Right Hand stands for Jesus What does it mean when Moses prays as follows? Exodus 15:

16 Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of thine arm they shall be as still as a stone; till thy people pass over, O LORD, till the people pass over, which thou hast purchased.

17 Thou shalt bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of thine inheritance, in the place, O LORD, which thou hast made for thee to dwell in, in the Sanctuary, O Lord, which thy hands have established.

Simply put, he is speaking of the church, and of the people he purchased. The same concept is found in Psalm 78, where the right hand is mentioned specifically.

Psalms 78:54 And he brought them to the border of his sanctuary, even to this mountain, which his right hand had purchased.

We are to be planted in the holy mountain, a people purchased with a price by Jesus who allegorically is portrayed as right hand.

What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's. (1 Corinthians 6:19-20 KJV)

So put two and two together, and you may conclude that the Right Hand is Jesus, the one who paid the price.

Here is a sample of typical verses using the phrase "Right Hand," all of which show or suggest its identification with Jesus.

Psalms 17:7 Shew thy marvellous lovingkindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand them which put their trust in thee from those that rise up against them.

Psalms 18:35 Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great.

Psalms 20:6 Now know I that the LORD saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand.

Psalms 80:15 And the vineyard which thy right hand hath planted, and the branch that thou madest strong for thyself.

Psalms 80:17 Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand, upon the son of man whom thou madest strong for thyself.

Isaiah 41:10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Isaiah 48:13 Mine hand also hath laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand hath spanned the heavens: when I call unto them, they stand up together.

Isaiah 62:8 The LORD hath sworn by his right hand, and by the arm of his strength, Surely I will no more give thy corn to be meat for thine enemies; and the sons of the stranger shall not drink thy wine, for the which thou hast laboured:
