Power or the ability of performing, is in an essential degree an attribute of Deity: God is emphatically styled All-powerful. Power signifies sometimes a right privilege, or dignity (Joh 1:12); sometimes absolute authority (Mt 28:18); sometimes the exertion or act of power, as of the Holy Spirit (Eph 1:19), of angels, or of human governments, magistrates, etc. (Ro 13:1), and perhaps it generally includes the idea of dignity and superiority. So, the body "is sown in weakness, it is raised in power" (1Co 15:43). The "prince of the power of the air" (Eph 2:2) is a figurative representation of Satan (q.v.). SEE AIR.
