For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ. Romans 5:17.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
To understand My Will for your life it is important to go back to first Words. First words are always important and set the stage for the rest that follows. That is why it is so important that you are very careful what you say in times of trial. You must keep the position of authority, that is, you must enforce the dominion and victory I have already given you. Let us look back to My first Words to mankind when I created you. I gave you dominion authority, but very few are using it, at least not as I envisioned it to be implemented by you.
Here is what I share with you in My Word about My Will for you as to your life upon the earth and what I said to the first man and woman on the day I created them, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” I created man in My own image, male and female I created them. I blessed them; and said to them, “Be fruitful and greatly increase, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” Genesis 1:26-28.
Please note that you are made in My image and according to My likeness. You are not inferior beings. You did not evolve from and are not of the same flesh as animals. I gave you dominion authority over the earth and the works of My hands to live a fruitful, ever increasing, blessed life. The very next thing I did when I created you was to give you all the seed bearing plants and trees so that mankind could literally be fruitful and increase in an ever replenishing, ever reproducing anew, thus producing more and more abundance until the earth was filled with lushness of the garden of Eden. Seeds sown multiply when grown to more seed and more harvest. One seed of a fruit, such as a peach seed, when planted will produce a peach tree that bears much fruit and in each fruit there is a seed for another tree, suddenly one seed produced hundreds of seeds and keeps producing fruit with seed in it every year from that one seed. This is multiplication. In blessing I will bless you and in multiplying I will multiply you. And this is in every area of your life.
But man, in Adam and Eve, abdicated their dominion authority to the devil by subjecting themselves to his dominion through obeying his words over Mine. The devil then took their seat of authority in the heavenlies, which is what he had been seeking. Isaiah 14:12-15. But I promised there would be a seed of the woman who would crush the devil’s authority (his head) and take back that throne from the devil. Genesis 3:15. And that promise was fulfilled in My Son, Jesus, true God and true Man. And the devil has been kicked off that throne of the son of man and it has been taken by THE Son of Man that all the earth was groaning to receive. Revelation 12:9-10. And for you who have received Jesus as Lord, I have seated you there with Him. Ephesians 2:6.
Today we continue the series on how to know My Will for your life with Life Lesson No. 10: Dominion Authority. This has been My Will for you from the start and My Word is established forever. My gifts and callings are irrevocable. Have you not read in the prophecies of Daniel how it will end for the devil and for you, My ones I have made holy, who believe? “The court will sit for judgment, and his dominion will be taken away, annihilated and destroyed forever. Then the sovereignty, the dominion and the greatness of all the kingdoms under the whole heaven will be given to the people of the holy ones of the Highest One.” Daniel 7:26-27. And I tell you that at the end of time as you know it now when I make all things new, there will no longer be any night; and you will not have need of the light of a lamp nor the light of the sun, because I will illumine you; and you will reign forever and ever. Revelation 22:5.
But your dominion authority does not only start at the end of this age. I never revoked it. My gifts and calling are irrevocable. The heavens are My heavens, but the earth I have given to the children of men. Psalm 115:16. You can give it to another, as Adam did, but you can also take it back and refuse to give up your territory, for you have been redeemed, and anywhere you stand, as I told Joshua, becomes redemption land! Joshua 1:3. For you, as they under the shadow of the Old Covenant, have been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb. In Jesus you have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of your trespasses, according to the riches of My grace which I lavished on you. In all wisdom and insight I made known to you the mystery of My Will, according to My kind intention which I purposed in Jesus with a view to an administration suitable to the fullness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things on the earth. Ephesians 1:7-10. The Passover Lamb, the burnt offering, and the morning and evening sacrifices of the tabernacle and temple of old were shadows and types of the good things to come in Jesus but He is the substance and the payment in full. Their faith was credited to them under the Abrahamic covenant as righteousness, and Abraham was in the habit of offering the burnt offering of the lamb, but the payment in full came in Jesus, who now has made you righteous with My own righteousness. And what happens when you receive that gift of righteousness lavished upon you by grace? For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ. Romans 5:17.
But too many today, even believers, are not even holding their ground let alone taking back territory from the evil one, who has it illegally by lying and misrepresentation, but instead many are giving in to his tactics and giving up what little victory they have. You are conceding territory to perversion and lies and letting your children and society be taken captive to do the devil’s will by an administration and society that is not walking with Me or taking their dominion authority but still handing it over to Satan by listening to his lies. And all the time the devil is simply using the same tactic that he found worked on Adam and Eve, that is, believing that in defying My ways and laws they become independent and their own sovereign. But as with Adam and Eve, rather than the freedom of control they sought they went into severe captivity, whereas before they were free to walk in dominion authority over the things of earth. But what they did not understand is that their freedom and authority came from their union with Me as their source and sovereign. It is delegated power. I have made you a little lower than Myself, your God, above the angels whom I made to serve you who are heirs of salvation, and I clothe you with glory and majesty! I make you to rule over the works of My hands. I have put all things under your feet, all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field, the birds of the heavens and the fish of the sea, whatever passes through the paths of the seas, all in the majesty of My Name, which I share with you. Psalm 8:5-10; Acts 4:12. And that is where your authority is from, My Name which I have given you.
And today the works of the devil taking place are blamed on Me. But the destruction is actually being released by people who have been taken captive by the devil to do his will, which he calls having a choice of what to do with your own morality and lifestyle. But is that not what he told Adam and Eve? That they would be able to determine by themselves what was good and what was evil apart from My Words. Exactly the same lie that they swallowed. And it was all based upon the pretext that disobeying Me would make them like Me in their own sovereignty, but what they had forgotten was that they were created just like Me, they came out of Me as My own image and according to My likeness. They had forgotten the God who gave them birth, as many have today, some through ignorance, for there is a famine in the land, but not for bread, but for My Word, but others through rejecting knowledge and following doctrines of demons.
But I will never forget you. You are Mine. You are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus. To do My Will and sit with Me on My throne in Heaven, you must be an overcomer. Revelation 3:21. You must stop giving in to sickness, fear, anxiety, depression, loss of hope, deceptions of men, false religions, anger, godless humanist and new age philosophies that leave Me out, immoral and perverted lifestyles, disrespect for life whether it be unborn, born, or elderly—you cannot back down to, or worse yet, agree with these things. That is a coward and the cowardly do not make it to My Kingdom. Revelation 21:8. Why are you going about so downcast? David experienced this in the evil onslaught of Saul against him, but he never gave up and gave in, and he did not let himself give in to fear, “Why are you in despair, O my soul? And why have you become disturbed within me? Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him for the help of His presence.” Psalm 42:5.
So what is the answer to all this? You have the victory already; you need only enforce it and Satan will back off from your life. And how does that come about? Only one way: Faith in My Word. The victory that overcomes the world is your faith. You can only keep dominion by faith in My Word. That is how Adam and Eve lost it, the devil got them off believing My Word, he caused them to doubt it and thus disobey it. Eve said he tricked her. Well, he did in that he made her doubt the truth and believe a lie and then act upon the lie. But it went deeper than that. The only reason he could trick her was that she did believe in the love that I had for her and the truth that I was giving her everything and holding nothing back from her with evil intent to hold her down. The devil convinced her of that by saying the reason I told her not to eat the fruit was so that she would not know what I knew. He told her she would not die if she ate it as I had told her would happen. Why did I tell her not to eat it then? Here was the reason the devil gave her, “For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” Genesis 3:5. Do you hear that same lie behind the words of the Israelites whom I had redeemed out of Egypt with great miracles of deliverance, protection, provision and guidance, all showing that I was on their side and had no evil intent towards them, when they reached the land I promised to give them and they saw giants in there? They said, “Why is the LORD bringing us into this land, to fall by the sword? Our wives and our little ones will become plunder; would it not be better for us to return to Egypt?” Numbers 14:3. I see an enemy’s hand in this. Sowing weeds in My wheat.
I gave My Son for you; will I not give you all things with Him? Nothing and no one should be able to separate you from the love I have for you as manifested in Jesus. He redeemed you from the curse, do not let it back in your life. And the curse is sickness, poverty, and eternal death. These things you should not allow in your life or the lives of your families.
If you are living a downcast, defeated, fearful life right now, take courage and stand up to be who you really are in Christ. Put on the full armor that I give you and take up the Sword of the Spirit and make ready for battle. Start in your own prayer time and begin opening your mouth to speak My Words and take down the strongholds of Satan and his unclean demons. You overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of YOUR testimony, but you only win by your testimony when you are testifying with Me, that is, speaking the same Words as I do—healing, prosperity, victory, and peace. Shalom was the favorite word of Jesus when I raised Him from the dead. It should be yours too. I speak Shalom to My people. I did not give you a spirit of fear but of power and love and self-control. Put on the shoes of the gospel of shalom and go. You will find people right on your street who are thirsty for the good news of Jesus. And many have never heard the Word, but you have. What you have freely received, freely give, and I will reward you.
I love you. Stop behaving like fools and realize you have dominion authority in My Name and the Name of Jesus. Take it. Stop giving up territory to the liar and take it back with the truth. My Word is truth, and it will set you free. Rise up out of the dust and shake off the chains, the Sun (Son) of Righteousness is rising. Time to move on to a whole new day. And that is My Will and now you can have it in Christ Jesus.
