Authority of Jesus Christ

No other person in history has the power and authority that Jesus Christ has.  The Bible says:

From those scriptures, we see that Jesus is:

Jesus is superior to everything.  This includes Satan and the forces of  darkness that wage war against us daily (Ephesians 6:12; 1 Peter 3:22).  Jesus defeated Satan at the cross and will eventually bring every enemy under his feet.  These enemies will then be cast into the "Lake of Fire" (Revelation 20:14-15).  

Authority delegated: Jesus demonstrated God's authority in his ministry on earth.  He delegated that authority to his disciples and to anyone else who would believe in him.   Here are the details:

12But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the authority (power, privilege, right) to become the children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name--13Who owe their birth neither to bloods nor to the will of the flesh [that of physical impulse] nor to the will of man [that of a natural father], but to God. [They are born of God!]  John 1:12-13 AMP
