Jesus Christ said," All authority has been given to Me in heaven and earth." So what does this Mean?


These words I just mentioned come from Matthew 28: 18 (NKJV). What did Christ mean when He said "All authority". What does this authority He mentioned allow Him to do? And with all authority what position does He (Christ) hold? Note: The KJV use the word power instead of authority.

    celafoe, if a person alien to faith wants to fathom words given In 17"' And.......tongues", and in 18,"' they........recover, "'in common parlance, how would you put them ? I think, Christ defines the characteristics of a true believer, right ?

    2Cor5:18-19 "GOD reconciled us to HIMSELF by JESUS CHRIST...To wit GOD was IN CHRIST reconciling the world unto HIMSELF!"

    What part of that don't u understand? "ONE SPIRIT" operating in ANY "GLORY" (JESUS CHRIST) HE desires;simultaneously too!

    Sri T- I just wondering if this re-enforces the idea that Christ is a King with all authority? Thanks for your answer.

    Eric- I a bit confused here. What two women are you talking about? You lost me here. The verse I mentioned is at the end of the book of Matthew. Thanks.

    sorry but you are incorrect, the ONLY link between God and mankind is the MAN CHRIST JESUS.
