The Microcosm must reflect the Macrocosm

The Christianity which Christ delivered to his saints has been adulterated by the devil and his agents in order to frustrate and defeat the purpose of God's salvation plan for mankind and because of this, it's message has been watered down and is  contrary to Christ and His will and what remains of it now bears more similarities with deism than it does with the original Christianity which is why majority of those who profess to be Christians reject the need for Christ to be enthroned in their hearts:

They are happy that Jesus is enthroned in Heaven but they are unwilling to accept that He must also be enthroned in their hearts. They willingly believe in a savior that died on the cross for their sins but are reluctant to accept that His death on the cross only becomes effective in their lives when they partake in it (Gal 2:20, Matt 16:24-25, Rom 6:6,John 12:25). They eagerly await Christ's arrival from the sky but they do not see the need for Him to come and rule in their hearts. They willingly accept that Jesus has authority over the outer universe but are unwilling to let him rule inside their hearts and have authority over their lives.

In a similar vein, they are  more zealous when fighting, casting out and inviting brimstone on the devil (and demons) that rules in hell than on the one that rules in their hearts. They are usually more willing to dedicate their time and resources to fighting the devil that lives outside their consciousness than they are to fighting the one that lives inside of their consciousness.

Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:Eph 2:2
 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.1 Cor 2:12

These are the main reasons why majority of those who profess to be Christians remain unchanged from the way they were before they started professing Christ. (The only visible change evident in their lives is usually the fact that they attend church on Sundays and perform some religious obligations)

They want an external Jesus who controls the heavens and has power over the external devil in hell but who has little or no control over how they live their lives.

When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.2 Thess 1:10

They also want an external satan who they can bind cast and torment at will but are not willing to address the one that controls their lives and desires

Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:Eph 2:2

Jesus reign over the Macrocosm (the universe) must reflect His reign over the Microcosm (the creation). Christ rules in the heavens but his reign in the heavens must be reflected in the lives of His creation in order to make His reign effective in their lives.

Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.Luke 17:21
At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.John 14:20

Satan rules in Hell but also in those who have not surrendered their lives to Jesus

Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.2 thess 2:4

Our hearts are the thrones that Jesus or satan must be  enthroned in. Jesus is enthroned in the hearts of the righteous and satan is enthroned in the hearts of the wicked and as long as Jesus is not enthroned in our hearts, we are under the power of the devil even if we profess Jesus and constantly invite brimstone on the devil and his agents

Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.1 John 3:7-8
