Matt. 28, 18

Jesus took our nature (sin excepted) with its weaknesses upon himself to reach and and save us.  He won his place by the suffering he endured.  Now the Father hath exalted him to the first place in all the universe!  All authority is his.

1.  Has authority over the Angels.  They cast their crowns at his feed and gladly do his bidding.  (1 Peter 3, 22)

2.  Hath authority over the church to direct all of its affairs forever.  “Is head over all things to the church which is his body”–see Rev. 1, 12-18; Eph. 5, 25-27; Acts 13, 2-5, Dan. 7, 13-14.

3.  Power or authority to forgive sin.  Such is His sovereign right (Mk 2, 10-12).  Without this He is a colossal failure.  If he is Divine of course He can.  Many are witnesses that He does.  He dominates devils, cast them out.

4.  Authority to execute judgment also (Jno. 5, 22).  Will decide the destiny of every soul at last.  His pierced hand shall open the gate of peal to admit his children; and shall close if against the finally impenitent (Matt. 25, 34, 41, 46).

5.  Have you yielded to Him or do you dare hold out against Him, whose blessing is offered now?
