A Closer Look at Authority investigates and identifies God’s true purpose, responsibilities, and qualifying characteristics for authority in the Church. As well as Satan’s abuse and misuse of God’s authority by false preachers that separate people from God, enslaving people to follow false teachings, selfish ambitions, and traditions of men.

This study includes every Greek word authority is translated from: Seven in the KJV, twelve in the NKJV, and lists all the English words they are translated to in every verse in the Bible along with their definitions. What is most shocking! The Greek word second more often translated to power. This very same Greek word in scripture defines the power and authority of God, Jesus Christ, the devil, the Beast and the kingdom of darkness.

So, how can we truly know if, we, and those claim to be authorities in our lives are expressing God’s authority, or Satan’s power? In view of this Biblical fact: the same exact Greek word defines both of them, but sometimes, it’s translated differently.
