What is Dominion & Do We Have It?
In Genesis, the very beginning of time, God gave 'dominion' to Adam. Genesis 1:26
26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over alla]">[a] the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
God gave the power or right of controlling & governing with sovereign authority, to control & dominate over all things on earth.
Satan came to earth to 'take' this authority away from us. He will rob us in any way, shape or form to make us feel in bondage. But after the fall of man God provided us with His grace to reestablish this dominion. Here's what the Bible says....
Romans 6:13-15 (New King James Version)
13 And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. 14 For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace. (Noticed the word GRACE!)
So what does this mean? By accepting Jesus as your redeemer, you are NO LONGER bound by satan or sin. It means you have dominion back! Dominion over ALL things thru Christ. We can do all things thru our savior Jesus Christ!
So what is SIN? Sin is ANYTHING that does not live up to God's glory....pretty much encompasses everything doesn't it? Ane what about GRACE? Grace is what 'covers' our sin before God.
So we all can be above oppression & bondage. Remember these words as the days pass. Our government is trying to take away our sovereignty & freedom and put us in bondage & oppression. These are just signs of the coming beast and signs of the times. Live knowing that thru Christ we are above and not below....put ALL your faith in Him and not what you see. His coming is very soon!
I no sooner posted this and found this in my message box from a dear Sister in Christ! So cool....
"When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers,
The moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;
What is man, that thou art mindful of him?
And the son of man, that thou visitest him?
For thou hast made him but little lower than God,
And crownest him with glory and honor.
Thou makest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands;
Thou hast put all things under his feet" (Psa_8:3-6).
