With great discernment and clarity, Nee helps the reader to understand what spiritual authority is, the relationship between authority and obedience, and the important distinction between obedience and submission.
Authority is a tremendous thing in the universe, nothing overshadows it. God’s throne is established on His authority. God’s authority represents God Himself. God alone has authority in all things; all the authorities of the earth are instituted by God. It is therefore important for us who desire to serve God to know the authority of God.
