Just how does

"a rebellion impl[y] the recognition of and validate the legitimacy of the authority being rebelled against?"

It seems to me, if you are rebelling against it, you deny the legitimacy of its authority, you don't recognize it!

Please, we need a little clearer thinking here. There are rebellions against arbitrary human authority which are consistent with respect for the legitimate authority of God. Please don't confuse the two.
