What are the “things above where Christ is seated” as said in Colossians 3:1-2?
By being faithful to the end and giving his sinless human body as sacrifice for our sins, God exalted him to a higher position and bestowed him with a name greater that any other .(Philipians 2:9) Sitting at the right hand of God, is a position of honor, with angels and powers made subject to him.(Except God) Also by means of Jesus, God will exercise his "will on earth" (Matthew 6:10), so that all things in heaven and on earth will be unified under Christ.
Things above where Christ is seated.

Sitting at the right hand of God, a position of authority.

alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades."
