Almost every nation in the world has an embassy that is owned by the United States of America. No matter what nation that embassy is in, the ground on which it rests is U.S. soil. That land does not belong to that foreign country.

Now, if you - as a U.S. citizen - are in Europe or Asia or any other continent, the moment you step into our Embassy in that region… you are in the U.S.A. BUT you are only in the U.S.A. because you are IN that embassy.

That’s what Ephesians 2:6 means when it says you are "…IN the heavenly realms IN Christ Jesus." You are IN the heavenly realms because you are IN Christ Jesus. If you were not IN Christ Jesus--you would NOT be IN the heavenly realms.
