“He demonstrated this power in the Messiah by raising Him from the dead and seating Him at His right hand in the heavens— far above every ruler and authority, power and dominion, and every title given, not only in this age but also in the one to come.”
(Ephesians 1:20–21 HCSB)

Jesus is still alive.  He is back with his Father from whom he came.  Paul writes that his place is now “far above every ruler, authority, power and dominion, and every title given.”  From now to eternity…and beyond.

Jesus’ position and power do not rest on whether or not you or I believe in him.  They rest upon his work that was finished at the cross and sealed by the resurrection.  He lives. He ascended into heaven.  He reins.  He has all authority.

You can take it or leave it, believe it or not, but it is true.

Oh, and his authority and power are over you also.  Just saying.
