The ONLY Power is of GOD


Romans 13:1 

King James Version

13 Let every soul be subject 

unto the higher powers. 

For there is no power but of God: 

the powers that be are ordained of God.

Many people do not know GOD.

They question His existence.

They question His power.

They question His mercy.

And yet, Scripture tells us.

The extent of His power.

The breadth of His love.

The proof of His mercy.

The power He has over nations.

And yes, the truth of His wrath.

Time to know Who GOD Really Is.

Genesis 1:1 

King James Version

1 In the beginning God created 

the heaven and the earth.

2 Chronicles 7:14 

King James Version

14 If my people, 

which are called by my name, 

shall humble themselves, 

and pray, 

and seek my face, 

and turn from their wicked ways

then will I hear from heaven, 

and will forgive their sin, 

and will heal their land.

Job 12:9-10 

King James Version

9 Who knoweth not in all these 

that the hand of the Lord hath wrought this?

10 In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, 

and the breath of all mankind.

Job 12:12-25 

King James Version

12 With the ancient is wisdom;

 and in length of days understanding.

13 With him is wisdom and strength, 

he hath counsel and understanding.

14 Behold, 

he breaketh down, and it cannot be built again: 

he shutteth up a man, and there can be no opening.

15 Behold, 

he withholdeth the waters, and they dry up: 

also he sendeth them out, and they overturn the earth.

16 With him is strength and wisdom: 

the deceived and the deceiver are his.

17 He leadeth counsellors away spoiled, 

and maketh the judges fools.

18 He looseth the bond of kings, 

and girdeth their loins with a girdle.

19 He leadeth princes away spoiled, 

and overthroweth the mighty.

20 He removeth away the speech of the trusty, 

and taketh away the understanding of the aged.

21 He poureth contempt upon princes, 

and weakeneth the strength of the mighty.

22 He discovereth deep things out of darkness, 

and bringeth out to light the shadow of death.

23 He increaseth the nations, and destroyeth them: 

he enlargeth the nations, and straiteneth them again.

24 He taketh away the heart 

of the chief  of the people of the earth, 

and causeth them to wander in a wilderness 

where there is no way.

25 They grope in the dark without light, 

and he maketh them to stagger 

like a drunken man.

Psalm 22:28 

King James Version

28 For the kingdom is the Lord's: 

and he is the governor among the nations.

Psalm 24:1 

King James Version

24 The earth is the Lord's, 

and the fulness thereof; 

the world, 

and they that dwell therein.

Psalm 62:11

King James Version

11 God hath spoken once; 

twice have I heard this; 

that power belongeth unto God.

Proverbs 19:21 

King James Version

21 There are many devices in a man's heart

nevertheless the counsel of the Lord, 

that shall stand.

Proverbs 21:1 

King James Version

21 The king's heart is in the hand of the Lord

as the rivers of water

he turneth it whithersoever he will.

Isaiah 14:27 

King James Version

27 For the Lord of hosts hath purposed, 

and who shall disannul it? 

and his hand is stretched out, 

and who shall turn it back?

Isaiah 40:21-24 

King James Version

21 Have ye not known? 

have ye not heard? 

hath it not been told you from the beginning? 

have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth?

22 It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth

and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers

that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, 

and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:

23 That bringeth the princes to nothing; 

he maketh the judges of the earth as vanity.

24 Yea, they shall not be planted; 

yea, they shall not be sown: 

yea, their stock shall not take root in the earth

and he shall also blow upon them, 

and they shall wither

and the whirlwind shall take them away 

as stubble.

Isaiah 40:15 

King James Version

15 Behold, 

the nations are as a drop of a bucket

and are counted as the small dust of the balance: 


he taketh up the isles as a very little thing.

Isaiah 40:17 

King James Version

17 All nations before him are as nothing

and they are counted to him less than nothing, 

and vanity.

Daniel 4:3 

King James Version

3 How great are his signs! 

and how mighty are his wonders

his kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, 

and his dominion is from generation to generation.

Daniel 4:17 

King James Version

17 This matter is by the decree of the watchers, 

and the demand by the word of the holy ones: 

to the intent that the living may know 

that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, 

and giveth it to whomsoever he will

and setteth up over it the basest of men.

Daniel 5:18-21 

King James Version

18 O thou king, 

the most high God gave Nebuchadnezzar thy father 

a kingdom, and majesty, and glory, and honour:

19 And for the majesty that he gave him, 

all people, nations, and languages, 

trembled and feared before him: 

whom he would he slew; 

and whom he would hkept alive; 

and whom he would he set up; 

and whom he would he put down.

20 But when his heart was lifted up, 

and his mind hardened in pride, 

he was deposed from his kingly throne, 

and they took his glory from him:

21 And he was driven from the sons of men; 

and his heart was made like the beasts, 

and his dwelling was with the wild asses: 

they fed him with grass like oxen, 

and his body was wet with the dew of heaven

till he knew that the most high God 

ruled in the kingdom of men, 

and that he appointeth over it 

whomsoever he will.

Matthew 28:18 

King James Version

18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying

All power is given unto me 

in heaven and in earth.

Ephesians 1:19-23 

King James Version

19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power 

to us-ward who believe, 

according to the working of his mighty power,

20 Which he wrought in Christ, 

when he raised him from the dead, 

and set him at his own right hand 

in the heavenly places,

21 Far above all principality, 

and power,

 and might, 

and dominion, 

and every name that is named, 

not only in this world, 

but also in that which is to come:

22 And hath put all things under his feet, 

and gave him to be the head over all things 

to the church,

23 Which is his body, 

the fulness of him that filleth all in all.
