And, if every chief magistrate is under His authority, then all lesser magistrates are also under His authority. He claims absolute, global, universal jurisdiction over every civil ruler Psalm And, He is more unyielding than an anvil.
The persons responsible to subject themselves to Prince Jesus, are kings, civil rulers, subordinates, and officers of the State, whether in the legislative, judicial, or executive branches of government.
Of such, Jesus Christ is Prince — archon , ruler, lord, chief, the first in power, authority, and dominion. It defines the authority of Christ in reference to political rulers and the sphere of civil government.
It designates Christ as the supreme ruler of all magistrates and of all the nations of the earth. But, this is not the declaration in this text. The church is not subject to the kings of the earth nor do the kings have jurisdiction over the church. The church has its ministry subject matter jurisdiction of gospel proclamation under Christ as Head of the Church; and, the government has its ministry subject matter jurisdiction of justice under Christ as Prince of the kings of the earth.
Jesus is over all civil rulers, and all civil rulers, even those in China and the Congo, are expected to order their affairs as accountable to Him.
The church can admonish kings, but it cannot command kings. Jesus commands kings. But, this is not what John intended to communicate here. He wants the original readers to understand that Jesus has authority over the State; that He is the Ruler over all civil institutions and the persons who govern them; that officers of the State must surrender to His authority and conduct their administrations of justice under His command.
The issue, of course, is not whether Jesus is the King of kings, but will the heads of state acknowledge Him as such. He is wholly in-charge of the Lost Boys, and the world he reigns over. And when the new children especially Wendy seem to garner more attention than him, his shadow side surfaces, Pan playing cruel pranks to lower the status of interlopers in the eyes of his followers. More of it, always. To the end, he believes he is doing what is right, corrupted by an evil magician as many of this archetype are.
The Red Queen learned long ago that to rule a place like Wonderland, you have to do so with sheer terror. But, in the end, the Terminator is the force of absolute power in his world, and his decision though suspect as it might be relies on the understanding that his solution is the right one, and that, in turn, people will follow him for its success.
Like this: Like Loading Glad to see your archetype series is back!! Such a cool idea for a post! You learn quickly as a stylist that we are all more similar than we are different and the RAINCRY story is very much rooted in promoting that 'feeling good about yourself' story that everyone deserves.
Challenges almost always require a major pivot in strategy and having your team meet the new expectations can compound the challenge even more so. So you have to be comfortable embracing challenges as an integral part of your business. Got a win today… how many more are out there for us? My mother is Anglo-British and my father is Indian. I suppose my siblings and I were always a bit marginalized from both communities, never quite sure where we fit in or were fully accepted.
At which point, it became exclusively their problem and it would later allow me to become my own person — dance to my own tune rather than to succumb to someone else's pigeon-hole. I also learned not to judge, nor be influenced by others and trust my naked instincts without bias, expectation, or the need for acceptance. You just have to be mindful not to enable, empower nor allow other peoples' adverse opinions to enter it. Instead, be sure to trust and believe in yourself; humble your ego; start with no assumptions or expectations and erase every bias you know — regardless of whether you are dealing with a person or a product.
Over the last several years, social media has become a behemoth and it can be difficult to have your voice heard on such crowded platforms. Now you have to be more savvy and committed to anything on social. In that respect, however, I would say one-on-one community building becomes even more important and likely a better, more intimate, and effective way to introduce your brand's personality to your audience. Also be sure to surround yourself with really good people that are much smarter than yourself and already have experience in what you're trying to do.
There are currently a number of products and lines that we are working on and even though it seems like an eternity, I am reminded that we are still considered a young, 'new' brand. Given my current work schedule and demands, I don't have the bandwidth to regularly interact with people as much as I think they would deserve.
Perhaps when I have more time I'll relook at it and be able to tell you some interesting accounts. Several years ago, I remember listening to a talk that said that we live in a time of "intelligent idiots" — where story-telling, information and knowledge are plentiful, but people have stopped 'thinking'. The last book that allowed me to reflect and ponder was an editorial book on Bansky and his art. It was thought-provoking and I appreciated his satire. Sadly I acknowledge that we have our share of disenfranchised people here in this country also.
Charity is important to me and we should not forget those that might be struggling. Despite our widespread issues, we in North America have won the geographic lottery and I encourage more people to be grateful for what we DO have and try to give back to those less fortunate — wherever and whoever they may be.
It's my honorary uniform and a throwback to when I was a stylist. It's a pH-balanced shampoo that's made with activated charcoal and helps my scalp not feel tight while making sure it's squeaky clean. I'm visual so I watch more than I read. I spend a lot of time watching documentaries — mainly historical documentaries and dramas from all over the world.

The truth of the matter is: we were absolutely terrible for each other and probably the most incompatible match I could think of. You also didn't deserve the lies I told or the neglected feelings and the jealousy that came from me, either. I had heard you had a reputation as a "player," and I thought you would be different with me, but you weren't, and I shouldn't have tried to change who you were to fit into what I knew I needed.
But all of this to say I don't hate you, I just know I deserved better than what you gave me, and I know you deserved better than what I gave you as well. You were the first man I ever saw a future with. A dramatic, intense, balls-to-the-wall future, but a future, nonetheless. You were the first person to see every single one of my flaws and somehow choose to stay, even when I didn't make it easy.
You could make me laugh like no one else, and I still remember all of our hours of conversations. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star. Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God.
This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already. At the same time, it is a new commandment that I am writing to you, which is true in him and in you, because the darkness is passing away and the true light is already shining. Whoever says he is in the light and hates his brother is still in darkness.
Whoever loves his brother abides in the light, and in him there is no cause for stumbling. But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes. Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews.
But my kingdom is not from the world. No one comes to the Father except through me. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness overtake you. The one who walks in the darkness does not know where he is going. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. To give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.
So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light,. And I will lead the blind in a way that they do not know, in paths that they have not known I will guide them. I will turn the darkness before them into light, the rough places into level ground.
These are the things I do, and I do not forsake them. Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
Now the Spirit of the Lord departed from Saul, and a harmful spirit from the Lord tormented him. And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. And the angels who did not stay within their own position of authority, but left their proper dwelling, he has kept in eternal chains under gloomy darkness until the judgment of the great day—.
Who is the leader of the Principalities, Powers and Spiritual wickedness in High places? Paul tells us in 2nd Corinthians It is Satan , Lucifer , the god of this world with a little g.
Oh you did not know that? Again if you do not know who the enemy is and where they came from you will not know how to defeat them. It will make this study too long adding in the information about the origin of Satan so you can study it here. He is on this earth trying to deceive and destroy as many as he can.
Ephesians Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:. Right now, he has control and dominion over the fallen angels and demon spirits that oppress and torment man. John Now is the judgment of this world; now shall the prince of this world be cast out. John Hereafter I will not talk much with you; for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.
Luke But some of them said, He casteth out devils through Beelzebub the chief of the devils. Ephesians describes the Command Structure of the god of this world, Yes Satan has his followers set up like the Military to carry out and oversee his evil plans for Man. In addition to Ephesians , these scriptures deal with the same word in the Greek. Romans For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,.
Ephesians To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,. Colossians For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:. Colossians And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
Some scholars say this refers to the Fallen Angels that were cast out with Lucifer. Rev ,9 These are the most powerful and are most likely in the command structure the top generals over a country. Their objective would be to give orders to the next in command the powers. Understand that these fallen angels hate Man just as Lucifer does and are working to wreak havoc and destroy every human they can. The main objective as 2nd Corinthians states is to keep as many as they can from the truth and accepting Christ as Lord and savior.
Just as the leaders in human military, it is the duty of these principalities to plot strategies and position the Troops powers and spiritual wickedness in a particular area. So if the Principalities are the chief rulers; they are first in a high order of evil spirits. It is used seven times in the scriptures to denote angelic or demonic rulers.
The church can admonish kings, but it cannot command kings. Lets take for instance the state of Nevada in the good ole USA. Right now, he has control and dominion over the fallen angels and demon spirits that oppress and torment man. Around BC, he ascended to the throne of the Maurya Empire, a power which ruled much of northwestern and central India. I am sure it exists somewhere and I am sure the Human Principalities are in control of that list. Brennan excels at maintaining suspense. Lk And when they bring you before the synagogues and the rulers and the authorities, do not be anxious about how you should defend yourself or what you should say. A person who fears Rulers Of The Dark - Hypocrite - Ruler Of The Dark (Cassette) would never go against the flow.
