YOU HAVE DOMINION MANDATE
Monday, 29 June 2015
“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”. Genesis 1:28
As we climax the age the devil seems to have been let loose, but God has not left us without adequate arsenal to withstand the powers of darkness. We have all it takes. We have all the tools and the materials. So I don’t want you to live your life carelessly as though you are naked. The greatest weapon is in the power of the word of God. In Hebrews 1:3 the Bible says He upholds the world by the power of His word. The Bible also says through the word all things consist. In other words, if you take away the word of God out of everything, it will dematerialize. That shows that we are loaded. I am a firm believer that before Christ comes there are people who will walk like God on this planet earth. They will be operating as though they are from another world because these are people who understand that they are not ordinary people.
Many of you don’t know what happened to you when you got born again. It was not a ritual, something definite happened to you. God’s kind of life came into you and that’s why you don’t have to be troubled. The life you have is not an ordinary life. What I am trying to do is to help you develop dominion mentality. In the book of Genesis 1 from verse 1 to verse 25, God created the animal kingdom and the plant kingdom. But in verse 26 it says “let us make man in our image and after our likeness.”
The image of God is the life or the nature of God. He made us first in His nature and likeness which means functioning like God. But you cannot function like God if you don’t have His image. So what He did first was to give you His life, His nature. Then He began to tell us to have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the foul of the air, over the cattle, over every creeping thing that creeps upon the face of the earth and over all the earth. You see that your dominion spans through the earth, the air and the sea. Anywhere you find yourself, you have dominion. I therefore challenge you to take charge wherever you are. Realize that everyone and everything is looking up to you. You are a winner and you will not fail in Jesus name.
