Excellent Bobcat. Thanks. On your post, you touch:
(Colossians 1:16) . . .because by means of him [Jesus] all [other] things were created in the heavens and upon the earth, the things visible and the things invisible, no matter whether they are thrones or lordships or governments or authorities. All [other] things have been created through him and for him.
Here the "thrones or lordships or governments or authorities" are among the things that "were created." So they are not likely referring to oppositional thrones, etc.
This is will a topic in the future maybe.
