Thesis 61: True Power vs. Political Power

Although rejecting political clout (#66), the Kingdom of God shall be greater than all other kingdoms,[1] permeating every area of life[2].

1. Matthew 13:32; Ezekiel 17:22-24; Isaiah 2:2-4; Daniel 2:35,44-45; Micah 4:1-3; Haggai 2:3-9; Zechariah 4:10. See also Mark 10:42-45 on "greatness."
2. Matthew 13:33 #68; Luke 17:20-24.

Christ was executed, giving an impression of powerlessness.
His disciples were disarmed. (Matthew 26:52; 2 Corinthians 10:3-5)

Revelation 17:13
These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast.

Revelation 19:1
After these things I heard a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, “Alleluia! Salvation and glory and honor and power belong to the Lord our God!

Same word, but two different kinds of power.
