Summary: IN OUR CHRISTIANITY WE WERE CREATED TO HAVE DOMINION NOT TO BE DOMINATED
IT MEANS TO PASS A CRITICAL STATE OR POINT AND BEGIN TO SEE AND HOPE FOR IMPROVEMENT.....WE AS THE CHURCH HAVE LOST HOPE TO TURN THE CORNER SO WE CARRY ON LIFE WITH A DOMINATED ATTITUDE......... BUT LOOK AT HOW AND WHY YOU WERE CREATED.......
GENESIS 1:26-27- 26And 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. 27So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
GRAB THIS REVELATION THIS MORNING, GOD GAVE MAN “YOU AND ME DOMINION OVER ALL THE EARTH, YOU WERE CREATED FOR DOMINION NOT DOMINATION. GOD’S PLAN WAS FOR ME AND YOU TO RULE NOT BE RULED.
GENESIS 1:28- 28And 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. BUT!!!!!!!! GENESIS 3:13-14 - 13And the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?”The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”14So the Lord God said to the serpent: “Because you have done this, You are cursed more than all cattle, And more than every beast of the field; On your belly you shall go, And you shall eat dust All the days of your life.
WE LOST OUR DOMINION NOT BECAUSE OF DOMINANCE BUT DECEPTION!
DOMINION WAS GIVEN TO MAN AND MAN GAVE DOMINION TO SATAN. GOD COULDN’T TAKE IT BACK MAN HAD TO. THAT’S WHY GOD CAME IN A MAN SUIT. WHEN GOD SAYS SOMETHING HE CAN’T GO BACK ON IT.
JOHN 1:14- 14And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
CAN YOU IMAGINE THE CREATOR GOING THROUGH THE PROCESS OF CREATION, TO A GOD OF THE UNIVERSE IT WAS TIGHT IN THAT WOMB BUT HIS WHOLE PURPOSE WAS TO GET US BACK OUR DOMINION.
LUKE 4:5-8- 5 Then the devil, taking Him up on a high mountain, showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. 6 And the devil said to Him, “All this authority I will give You, and their glory; for this has been delivered to me, and I give it to whomever I wish. 7 Therefore, if You will worship before me, all will be Yours.”8 And Jesus answered and said to him, “Get behind Me, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.’
JESUS BEING 100% MAN WASN’T SPEAKING TO SATAN BUT THE 100% GOD WAS SPEAKING AT THIS MOMENT THROUGH FLESH OR MAN. JESUS LIVED A LIFE OF SHOW AND TELL SO THOSE THAT SEEN COULD GRASP THE POWER IN HIM.
I JOHN 4:4 - 4Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
IT’S THE POWER OF GOD THAT GAVE US DOMINION AND IT’S THE POWER OF GOD WE MUST LET HAVE DOMINION IN OUR LIVES SO WE CAN HAVE DOMINANCE IN THIS WORLD. WHEN WE SUBMIT WE HAVE THE POWER TO SUBDUE.
JOHN 10:10 -10The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
GOD DIDN’T TAKE DOMINION BACK FOR HIM BUT FOR YOU. HE ALREADY HAS ALL POWER AND AUTHORITY! HE DIDN’T DO IT TO GET US TO HEAVEN EITHER, HE DID IT SO WE CAN RECONNECT HEAVEN AND EARTH. HE CAME TO DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE ENEMY SO WE CAN WALK IN THE FULFILLMENT OF OUR DOMINION.
JOHN 19:30- 30When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
HE WAS SAYING HERE MISSION COMPLETE DAD, I’M COMING HOME, I’VE PUT THE BALL BACK IN THEIR COURT, THIS IS NO LONGER AN AWAY GAME WE NOW HAVE HOME FIELD ADVANTAGE. THIS WORLD WAS CREATED FOR US TO HAVE DOMINION OVER IT NOT FOR IT TO DOMINATE US. LOOK WHAT CALVARY DID.
MATTHEW 28:18- 18And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING ABOUT GOD THIS MORNING, HE DOESN’T EVEN ENTERTAIN THE THOUGHT OF DEFEAT, GOD CAN’T LOSE, THERE IS NOTHING IN HEAVEN OR EARTH THAT CAN’T BE DEFEATED HE HAS ALL POWER AND AUTHORITY AND DOMINION. THE THIEF IS ON PRIVATE PROPERTY.
