“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.”
-MATTHEW 28:18

The only legitimate power in the universe belongs to the Lord Jesus – all other power is either illegitimate or temporal. If THE power belongs to Him, then it cannot belong to anyone else. Jesus says, “All authority [power] has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.” That is a very broad statement, is it not? Absolute power over all of creation!

In a world in which men (and devils) wrestle for dominion, joust for position, seek the preeminence for themselves, strive to exert their influence over others, and lust for more and more control over one another, we as the Body of Christ may simply raise our hands to heaven and lift up our eyes to our Head in Whom God has vested all of His omnipotence and declare to the universe, “YOURS IS THE POWER, and apart from You, we can do nothing.”
