How is Luke 4:5-6 to be reconciled with Daniel 4:17?
There is no contradiction,
Luke 4:5-6: "All this authority I will give you, and their glory; for
this has been delivered to me, and I will give it to whomever I wish.”
Jesus did not deny that the kingdoms of the world were Satan’s to give. Later, he called Satan “the ruler of this world.” (John 12:31; 16:11) Toward the end of the first century C.E., the apostle John wrote: “We know we originate with God, but the whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one.” (1 John 5:19) This does not mean God has relinquished his sovereignty over the earth. Remember that Satan, when offering Jesus rulership over the political kingdoms, stated: “I will give you all this authority . . . because it has been delivered to me.” (Luke 4:6) Delivered by whom? --God
Similarly, the State exercises its authority only because God as Sovereign Ruler permits it to do so. (John 1ohn 19:11NASB)_
During His interrogation By Pilate , Jesus said to him
11 Jesus answered him, “You would have no authority over Me at all, if
it had not been given to you from above; for this reason the one who
handed Me over to you has the greater sin.”9:11) Thus, “the existing
authorities” can be said to “stand placed in their relative positions
Governments,act as God,s public servants,in that they provide necessary services, maintain law and order, and punish evildoers. (Romans 13:1, 4, 6)NET
Submission to Civil Government
1 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except by God’s appointment,[a] and the authorities that exist have been instituted by God. 4 for it is a servant of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword for nothing; for it is a servant of God, an avenger who brings wrath on the one who practices evil.6 For because of this you also pay taxes, for rulers are servants of God, devoting themselves to this very thing.
