Ephesians 1:21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

The terms used in this verse are terms used of worldly political rulers (Luke 12:11; Titus 3:1; Ephesians 3:10; 6:12; 1 Peter 3:22).

Jesus, after his resurrection, said:

Matthew 28:18  And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

See 1 Corinthians 15:28.
