Dominion!

Previously, I shared some scriptures from Genesis 1:20:28

I wanted to look at the words dominion. What is dominion?

Dominion: Sovereignty; control: “man’s attempt to establish dominion over nature.” The territory of a sovereign or government:

Synonyms:

domination – rule – power – reign – authority – control

Dominion was mans first assignment in the earth realm, ‘Rediscovering the kingdom’ By Miles Munroe. I’m primarily concerned with mans original rulership. Strip away everything you know about the modern trappings of society. You are left with just man, man with nothing, man needing God to protect him from the elements. Initially all man had was his spirit, soul, mind and body. In death, we see mankind stripped of everything including the very breath he enjoyed previously. I want you to get the picture of man, dependent on the universe for his very existence. How you say, does that have anything to do with ruler ship? Man is nothing; we have nothing, unless it is given to us by God. You see this naked, defenseless and hopeless, being called man, could not survive with the help of God. The psalmist says “what is man, that thou art mindful of him? And the son of man, that thou visitest him?” – Psalm 8:4. If there are no guns, or weaponry, many of the wars would not be fought. If there was no witchcraft, many people would not have amassed what they have, or be able to destroy others. When we put on the veneer of civilization, we become powerful and think we can do many wicked things against each other. According to my bishop, ‘God is just playing along, ‘he will come so suddenly most people will not even realize what hit them. How many heinous crimes against humanity have been committed using the help of demons?

Mans rulership:

  • God gave man dominion over earth.
  • God gave man dominion over creation and earth,
  • Man was never given dominion over heaven (I shared with you how God came down, when man attempted to build a tower to the heavens at Babel)
  • God never gave man religion, but a relationship.
  • God never promised man heaven, but earth.
  • Man was never given dominion over other men

Man was sent to co partner with God in the earth realm, as God’s representative. God created heaven and earth. He also created spirit beings and fleshy beings (you and me); he decided that we should inhabit different realms. Let’s look at a portion of Psalm 148 “Praise ye the Lord. Praise ye the Lord from the heavens: praise him in the heights. Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts. Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light. Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens. Let them praise the name of the Lord: for he commanded, and they were created. Angels are created beings; man is made in the image and likeness of God. If we search the meaning of made and created, you will find out that they have different meanings. I’m not going into the root word or Hebrew word, this will suffice, one is an action word and the other is an adjective, so there is some distinction.

Made: (adjective):

Made or formed in a particular place or by a particular process: “a handmade dress”.
Synonyms:

done – made-up

Create: (verb)

 Bring (something) into existence: “he created a lake”; Cause (something) to happen as a result of     one’s actions:
 Synonyms:

make – produce – originate – generate – form – cause
God never gave any man control over any other. Sadly, this is the state of many individuals in the world today. As people are in bondage to this or that, half of the time, they had help in getting themselves in the fix they are in. It’s nothing new, since the beginning of mankind, we have disobeyed God laws, all kind of perversion and chaos has erupted. Many people now believe that is the way things ought to be and that God is dead. Well the devil is a liar. God is not dead and he is intervening in the affairs of man.

Much of the atrocities we are seeing today are being performed by wicked men and women under demonic influence. They believe they can do just about anything they please, including taking lives at will. God is going to deal with them now, and on judgment day. They want to be spiritual movers and shakers without submitting to the power of God. God always chooses who he wants to do his bidding. Adam was an ambassador sent by heaven, but he messed up as many others after him. God sent Jesus to deliver mankind and to restore to us what Adam and eve lost through their carelessness. Jesus preached the message, that the kingdom of heaven is at hand, but most folks don’t understand what he was talking about, even two thousand and more years later. In Europe most people understand the workings of the kingdom system, because they have been a part of that system that gave rise to sovereignty. God instituted the kingdom idea, even though man has taken it and perverted that too. I want to remind us once again of Genesis 1:26 “Then 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 birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

I can’t see, where it says we are to have dominion over each other, maybe I’m reading the scripture, incorrectly. So to those who are doing evil and think God is not seeing you, wake up, he is coming to you personally. Telling me you sending demons to destroy and terrorize people. You stealing and killing, you will answer, every last one of you, don’t worry your day is arriving.
”He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see?” Psalm 94:9
