God gives authority in the Old Testament to Moses and the Prophets or to anyone else who chooses to follow Him and obey His Commandments. The authority is over one’s own evil and false ideas, not over another person. I have authority over hell, not over heaven. Angels have no authority over me. They like me have authority over hell. The Lord gave the same authority to the desciples, to have authority over hell, They had authority to cast of evil spirit in a person, not have authority over the person them self. I deny the of the Catholic Church because their authority is over people, which the Lord never gave. Only the Lord has authority over people. The Lord said in Matt, “All authority and power was giver to Me.” This means redemption was done through the Human. Authority and power meant the samething. Jehovah God the Father had became Man, and by that redemption was done.
