Walking in Dominion

Study Text: Ephesians 1: 19 - 23

Ephesians 1:19-23, "may you have the spirit of understanding and your eyes be enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all."

Introduction:

- Dominion is a topic that many of us talk about but few of us really possess.

- Dominion in its simplest form is power, authority or control over something or someone.

- It is the ability to request or command and expect a fulfillment of that appeal. To have dominion is to rule, to be in charge.

- For a saint of God understanding dominion is crucial to his walk with God. A lack of understanding in this area could cost him spiritually and naturally too.

- Spiritual dominion is not arbitrary ruler ship. It is not about going around commanding and demanding at your own discretion.

- Spiritual dominion falls under the auspices of God. It is only effective and effectual when it submits totally to the will of God.

- Dominion is about knowing who you are in Christ and understanding that in you, through Him is the power to lay hold onto the promises of God and possess them until the day of Christ.

- Dominion is understanding that you can do what God said you can do,

have what God said you can have and be what God said you can be.

- We shall discuss the topic under three subheadings:

1. The Plain Truth About Walking in Dominion

2. The Principles of Walking in Dominion

3. The Places of Walking in Dominion

1. The Plain Truth About Walking in Dominion

- Spiritual dominion begins in you. You will never be able to exercise power or authority over anything until you have first conquered self.

- Flesh is our greatest enemy. The church today appears to be on fire with spiritual warfare. Going against demonic activities, battling demons and rebuking the forces of evil, but until you conquer your flesh you are no match for the enemy.

- The bible clearly states: “Present your bodies a living sacrifice holy and acceptable unto God which is your reasonable service and be not conformed to this world but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind that ye may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”

- The word of God has not changed! Except we first take dominion over ourselves, over habits and desires and unbridled lusts and passions that are in us we can never expect to have dominion over anything else.

- We must crucify, dominate and control flesh and make it bow to the dictates of God.
