All power and authority

In light of my talk tomorrow at New Life Presbyterian on the Wrath of God, I decided to post my introductory paragraph with the hope that I shall post the rest at some other opportune time.

If the love of God is inseparable from His holy character, than His wrath is no different; as I have argued in my lesson on the Love of God, God is the plenipotentiary, meaning, He is invested with full power, authority, and strength. Unlike leaders and dictators of this world, whose plenipotentiary derives from the people or through manipulation, God is all powerful and able to do what He pleases because He is God. No one can bestow power to God, since power finds its completion in God himself. Just as Hebrews tells us that God can swear by no one but Himself, since no one matches the authority and honor of God, then perfect power and authority rests on God alone, for there is no other who shares in His perfect glory and holiness.
