God has absolute authority. All other authority is delegated and subservient. Unregenerate man only thinks that he has that kind of authority. What authority he is allowed to exercise is, and always will be, subject to God. Anointing is what gives us the right to use the authority of God. Anointing is the release of the authority, power & dominion of God.
You, beloved, as a child of God have delegated authority. It is a higher authority than that which Satan stole from Adam [man] and that which is allowed unregenerate man.
Power is the exercise of authority. To be able to exercise power one must be in a place of dominion. Dominion is the place or position of authority. Only the Born-again child of God abides in the place of dominion. This can be seen as we read over Ephesians 1:3-13, 21; 4:6; Matthew 26:64; Mark 14:62; Hebrews 8:1; Hebrews 12:2
Our position is in Christ Jesus, Who is in the place of dominion, which is at the right hand of the throne of God. This is the position of power and authority. Christ is the Anointed One [the One authorized to exercise Authority, Power and Dominion over all]. Isaiah 61:1; Luke 4:18 (KJV)
“. . . the LORD hath anointed me . . .”
He is [and we are in Him]:
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: Ephesians 1:21 (KJV)
