actually, Christ is now sitting at the right Hand of God. He will return later, and will rule earth when He returns.

Jenna,

Is that a literal seat Christ is sitting in? Does God have a literal right hand?

Matthew 28:17-20
17 When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some were doubtful. 18 And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 [e]Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you [f]always, even to the end of the age.”


Ephesians 1:20-23
20 which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. 22 And He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the church, 23 which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.

He will rule in the future, right now He is in heaven.

As much as some Christians don't like it, the Bible says that Satan is the current ruler of this world. Now that obviously doesn't mean every inch or corner of the world.

I don't know :D

But why would the devil tempt Jesus then - by saying that all He has to do is bow down before Satan and then He can have all that He sees before Him. Naturally Jesus/God "own" the earth, they made it, but perhaps Satan has been given temporary ownership of earth.

The Temptation of Jesus by Satan occurred before the Death and Resurrection of Jesus.
Both of these passages describe the status of Jesus following the Death and Resurrection of Jesus.

At the Temptation Satan was offering Jesus a 'shortcut' to the status that Jesus would obtain anyway...

Satan was basically saying...
You don't have to die to get all this.
You can have it now...
Without the humiliation of serving humanity for 3 years.
Without letting humans kill you on a cross.
Why follow the Father's plan and wait and suffer?
I can give it to you right now without the pain and suffering.
