Let us note as a primary concern that all authority “exercisable” whether
in heaven or on earth belongs to God. Power belongs to God. Every man who would bear any measure of authority would only be a delegate. For a man to stand in a place to exercise spiritual authority over others, it will only be delegated to him by God.
The essential pre-requisite qualification for a man to be appointed a representative delegate of God is this proven submission and absolute obedience. Rebellion is defined as a desire to break away from an authority, that is a quest to become “an authority” in oneself: a personal drive for self independence.
