A Voice from the Past - Matthew Henry

Angels, authorities, and powers are all made subject to Christ Jesus: all power in heaven and earth, to command, to give law, issue orders, and pronounce a final sentence, is committed to Jesus, God-man, which His enemies will find to their everlasting sorrow and confusion, but his servants to their eternal joy and satisfaction.

Matthew Henry, 1662-1714, Commentary on the Whole Bible, 1 Peter III, 22, III, 3 (Fleming H. Revell Co., Vol. VI, p. 1027)

What significant does the power and authority of Christ have? How does it affect our lives?


  1. All are subjects of the King of Kings. Even those who rebel against, and do not acknowledge, his sovereign rule.
