All authority in heaven and earth (universal authority).

Authority - the power to determine, adjudicate, or otherwise settle issues or disputes; jurisdiction; the right to control, command, or determine (Webster’s Encyclopedic Unabridged Dictionary of the English Language, page 100, NY: Gramercy Books, c. 1996).

Power - one who or that which possesses or exercises authority or influence (Webster’s Encyclopedic Unabridged Dictionary of the English Language, page 1127, NY: Gramercy Books, c. 1996).

That Christ has universal authority encompasses the fact that He has universal power (= omnipotence).

To be omniponet means to be the Almighty.
