He does have authority over heaven & earth, over everything. Jesus is God, in flesh. Jesus was sent for one reason, which we all know, He set us free
from all sins. We worry too much over the flesh, and we forget what lies after we pass on. Its what lies beyond this life, eternity, and there He has
authority, too. We had to be set free first so we may join our Father when we leave here. And Jesus will be back here on earth, one day, again.
"The one who conquers and who keeps my works until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron,
as when earthen pots are broken in pieces, even as I myself have received authority from my Father. And I will give him the morning star." Revelation
Still, He always prayed to our Father while on earth. He walked in 100% trust, faith and perserverence in The Father's Name.
Another thing is that Our Father gave all of us authority. But, it comes down to faith. We are all part of our Father.
YOU Have Authority:
"Behold, I give unto YOU power (Authority) over serpents and scorpions (demonic powers), and over all the power of the enemy (even Satan): and nothing
shall by any means hurt you." [Lk:10:19]
"YOU shall also decree a thing and it shall be established unto you and so light will shine on your ways. When they cast you down and YOU SAY
'Exaltation shall come!" then He shall save the humble person." [Job 22:28-29]
"Truthfully I say unto you, Whatsoever YOU shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever YOU shall loose on earth shall be loosed in
"Let us hold fast the profession (Confession) of our faith without wavering (the words that we speak); (for he is faithful that promised
"Cast not away therefore your confidence (faith and trust in Him and His promises), which has great recompense (promise) of reward (results)."
