|The Authority of Jesus
And Jesus came and spake unto them,
saying, All power is given unto me in
heaven and in earth.
And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be
likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon
that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins,
(then saith he to the sick of the
palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go
unto thine house.
For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:
That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that
honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.
For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have
life in himself;
And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son
He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him:
the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
If ye love me, keep my commandments.
No man taketh it from me, but I lay
it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it
again. This commandment have I received of my Father.
(19) And what is the exceeding greatness
of his power to usward who believe, according to the working of his mighty
(20) Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him
at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
(21) Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every
name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
(22) And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over
all things to the church,
(23) Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.
(9) And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from
the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by
(10) To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly
places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,
For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth,
visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or
principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the
firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
And being made perfect, he
[Jesus] became the
author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;
Casting down imaginations, and every
high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing
into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha.
And, behold, I come quickly; and my
reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and
the end, the first and the last.
