DOMINION MANDATE PART 2

dominion-logo

Last time, we took out time to see what God wants from us as believers and also we established a few things on the dominion mandate from the book genesis  how man lost dominion and how it was recovered and we ought to deal with men when it comes to dominion. Today we are going to be talking about how to establish the dominion mandate.

Now from the book of revelation we see what we are now in Christ unto God and our responsibility.

Rev 5:10

” And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth

KJV

 Now as believers we are kings and priests unto God made to reign on the earth. It is very essential that we do not lose focus on that, through this offices are the works of God or dominion manifested on earth. We must ensure as believers that we occupy this offices so as ensure Gods dominion here on earth. Also it is important we note that, even as the target of God is the whole earth must we not forget that his distribution of responsibilities to believers are territorial. We see this in the life of Jesus Christ when he sent the seventy he restricted them to the house hold of Israel. Likewise when he was about to ascend he told the disciples that they will  witnesses of him  and listed to them, the cities individually.

Acts 1:8

“But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”

KJV

Notice that he started by calling the cites individually, that is how also God expects us to have dominion by taking charge of territories one after the other.  That is, where ever the lord has placed a believer God expect that believer to subdue that territory, having dominion. So we must not lose focus as to where we are to express his dominion but rather express it where ever the lord has placed us. It may be our working place, schools, family, sports where so ever he has placed should be  brought under Gods influence. The ways which we can subdue a territory are;

  • Through Prayer [Intercessions]; For believers to have dominion over a territory the place of intercession is key to making it happen. The place of intercessions sees to it that the spiritual atmosphere is made conducive  for the operation of God, the place of prayers helps in bringing to revelation the plans of God for that territory, the place of prayer helps in monitoring the works and plans of the devil and stopping it from coming to pass, the place of prayer controls the heart of men to favor the plans of God for that territory. The place of prayer cannot be over emphasized. The place of prayer is our priestly duty and we must not neglect it.
  • Creativity: This is simply your abilities, that is; using your abilities to influence people so as to have dominion over the land. Your abilities may be in sports, music, politics, and many more, this should be used to influence people, that’s why as a believer your abilities should be properly refined because it will make a way for you. When your abilities are well refined you become influential and many will try having access to you. Which is a plus to a believer, now imagine a person with level of influence Michael Jackson had and stood for Christ, I tell you a lot of souls would be won through that influence, Today most people pattern their lives after celebrities because of influence, the celebrities never forced them  but via that position of influence people have bought their Ideas. Also have you wondered why companies look for celebrities or people with influence to market their product? it because the position of influence those people occupy can make people buy their products. Also like the case of government believers must be ready to rise to those positions of influence without compromising their believes, because whoever is in power sets the rules. An example is seen in the book of Esther, where Esther’s position was used to save the people of Israel and also elevate a spokesperson [Mordecai]  for Israel which allowed rules to be set in their favour. If we are to have dominion over a territory, we must be influential and by that means fly the banner of Christ high with our influence.

 

  • Love: For dominion to be established love must abound between believers and also between believers and nonbelievers. Jesus speaking in the gospels he said love your neighbors as yourself notice he said neighbors, that is who so ever is your neighbor love them as yourself. I noticed that believers are mostly short of this, you might meet someone who is not of the same faith that doesn’t mean you become resentful or be hateful towards them but rather be loving. You must understand we have choices towards beliefs as humans but that shouldn’t stop us from associating with others. That was what Jesus meant by telling the scribes and Pharisees that he came for the lost sheep’s of Israel. So we must be loving no matter what. You also may meet someone who is a [lesbian or homosexual] or an atheist doesn’t mean you should be hateful, but with love try to give an exegesis of what it should be, and after which when you get home keep praying for them and  never stop praying till the word become flesh. By this we are able to have access to the hearts of men, I meet people and [unbelievers] their complains most times are how they are treated by believers, believers being resentful. Which shouldn’t be that way, but rather in the way of love because by this shall men know we are his disciples. Love must not cease, for God is Love. For even yet when we were sinners he loved us, and if we claim to love God and manifest God then, we must love sinners and in love show them the way.

Even as we have ended this study, my prayer to every believer is  that may the grace[ability] of God that brings men to understanding , that also gives the ability to do,come upon us to do this things so that his kingdom may come.

In Jesus Name.

Amen.

THE DOMINION MANDATE PART 1

Today most believers have lost touch with the main reason why they were created. And taken the path to fulfilling what they think or feel they should be doing , fulfilling their own agendas not Gods agenda for their life and the body of Christ. As a result , this study has been done help enlighten believers and point them back to what they are supposed to be doing with their lives in relation to the opportunity given to them by God and understanding of this is greatly needed by those who just got saved so that they would find meaning as why they were created.

We start our study from the book of Genesis  1:26-28

“26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” KJV

Now we see the God head initiating a plan to create man and also giving us a profile of what of man in verse 26 that a man has in him spiritual quality of God. God placed in man the ability to legislate like him, just the way he dominated. He created man after his order although not as powerful as him. We see also that God went as far as to give man the earth to have dominion over according to the way he would legislate, but under his divine supervision. God allowed himself to be limited by not intruding into the affairs of man except being invited, That is the extent of the privilege God gave to man.

Ps 115:16 

“The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.”

KJV

After the creation of man we know what happened man fell, man didn’t keep the instruction given to him by God to ensure his dominion over the earth. Man lost the dominion to the devil, and that resulted into man getting a curse which was the consequence of his action [disobedience].

Gen 3:16-19

“16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;

18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;

19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.”

KJV

This why creation fights men, why life has been one hardship and sufferings because man lost his authority to the devil, but thank God for Lord Jesus Christ who has recovered that authority back and has given us the opportunity to have access to this authority in him. Allowing us to continue the mandate in Christ Jesus by bringing the earth into subjection and spreading the influence of Christ all over the earth.

We must note that dominion from God was restrained to;

 

“……..let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”

Man was not instructed to have dominion over another man, when this proclamation was made, man was in his perfect state but after the fall man needed to be influenced back to his creator to accept the gift of salvation and partake also in the continuance of dominion over the earth.

Matt 5:14-16

“14 You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.

15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lamp stand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 

16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”

NKJV

Note in verse 16  that through the light coming from the life of a believer and the good works done by the believer, men are influenced to acknowledge God.

SUSTAINING GODS GLORY IN A GENERATION

       Today, we see places where God once moved look as if he never moved there. The reason is because the workings of God was not sustained in that generation, which causes that present generation who has lost touch with God to be hateful and resentful toward him. The damages caused by not preserving ordinances is seen in our world today.

thebodyofchrist

 

Taking a quick inventory through the bible, from the book of Judges 5 and 6 we discover that there was a generation that grew up not knowing or seeing the power of God move. As a result of this the children of Israel went after other gods who they seem fit to be powerful than theirs[Jehovah]. we see also that what causes a generation to be in decadence from God is the lack of transference of correct ordinances from the previous light bearers to the next. when the priests, prophets of  the next generation are not taught why and how the glory of God must be preserved in generation.

The glory of God is preserved in a generation when his exceeding great power is made manifest in that generation. The power to perform, to teach and to bring people to encounter realities in God. when the great power of God is not made manifest in congregation or generation, people loose touch with God or become religious like the pharisees or even begin to have contemplation’s of his existence. The children of Israel all ways lost touch with God even doubted his existence when the great power of God wasn’t  made manifest. If the glory of God must be preserved, his great power must also be preserved.the-body-of-christ-open-1

Also if the glory of God must be preserved  in a generation, the mysteries of the kingdom that pertains to life and Godliness must be preserved. e.g the mysteries of spiritual growth,wealth, favor, anointing,healing,dominion,marriage and many more must preserved. Teaching the younger generation this mysteries.

Finally in preserving the glory, the place of prayers [intercession] must never go down in that generation because, that is the altar for that generation in  communicating to God  and maintaining control of things.

Therefore I urge us as believers[body of Christ] to sustain Gods glory in ensuring his kingdom come.
