The Highest Authority

An Emperor is the highest power in the region he occupies. … While a King rules one fairly homogenous territory (called a nation or kingdom), emperors often wield power over a fairly heterogeneous territory (ruler of many nations).  Their word or decree is final and there is no challenge or appeal for his decree is supreme over the region.

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Deuteronomy chapter 30:

11 “For this commandment which I command you today is not too mysterious for you, nor is it far off.

12 It is not in heaven, that you should say, ‘Who will ascend into heaven for us and bring it to us, that we may hear it and do it?’

13 Nor is it beyond the sea, that you should say, ‘Who will go over the sea for us and bring it to us, that we may hear it and do it?’

14 But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may do it.

15 “See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil,

16 in that I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments, His statutes, and His judgments, that you may live and multiply; and the LORD your God will bless you in the land which you go to possess.

17 But if your heart turns away so that you do not hear, and are drawn away, and worship other gods and serve them,

18 I announce to you today that you shall surely perish; you shall not prolong your days in the land which you cross over the Jordan to go in and possess.

19 I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live;

20 that you may love the LORD your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days; and that you may dwell in the land which the LORD swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.”

In the above passage, FATHER decrees what will happen depending on the choice HE presented to the children of Israel.  There is none other above HIM and HIS power.  In Revelations chapter 4, those who reside in Heaven proclaim:

8 The four living creatures, each having six wings, were full of eyes around and within. And they do not rest day or night, saying:

​​​“Holy, holy, holy,

​​Lord God Almighty,

​​Who was and is and is to come!”

This correlates to the verse in Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever” thus both FATHER and Our Lord Jesus Christ share the same preeminence as having full and complete power and authority over all of creation, both the seen and the unseen.  When we embrace this higher authority, we need not focus on any lesser power or authority for such power is subject to the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY and HIS Son.

As we align ourselves with the preeminent power of Our Elder Brother, we will no longer be subject to any lower authority.  The power of death will no longer reign over us in any manner and we will be found worthy to join the KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS in bringing forth the Kingdom to the earth.
