Genesis 1:25-26. NKJV.

25 And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
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 all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

DOMINION Ordinarily means sovereignty or control. “man’s attempt to establish dominion over nature”
Spiritually DOMINION is a God-given gift to His people that requires His supernatural Anointing. It belongs to you, but it isn’t automatic. It takes faith, walking in love, and operating in the anointing to manifest it.

The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because He has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, (Luke 4:18).

God’s purpose to creat man is to have Dominion and be incharge of the earth.
When you are in charge of something you rule over it, you have dominion over it. The most famous use of the word DOMINION occured in the Bible, when God grants people Dominion over other animals and His Creation, according to our bible verse today.

For us to walk in dominion God gave us four important things we must do, namely, To Be FRUITFUL, MULTIPLE , REPLENISH THE EARTH AND SUBDUE IT. Before God gave us these four commands he had embedded in us the potentiality to actualize them.

Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” (Genesis 1:28).

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 says you can do, have what God said you can have and be what God said you can be.

“The highest heavens belong to the Lord, but the earth He has given to mankind” (Psalm 115:16). God has given us the power to possesse the earth and the power to inherit it. Authority is in the realm of God Almighty while power reside in the domin of mankind that’s why man’s quest for power is insatiable always acquiring and subduing anything that may hinder his dominance over his fellow man even though God did not give man dominion over man rather over every other thing God had created before He made man.

As I was writing this article it dropped in my mind , The Story of Cain And Able in the Bible. Despite Cain and Abel were the only sons of Adam and Eve then, the first family God ever made Why did Cain killed Abel considering the fact that the entire universe was at their beck and call

The scripture only recorded in Genesis 4:8-9 the account of how Cain lured Abel to the field and killed him. What exactly transpired we are not privilege to note “Now Cain talked with Abel his brother; and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother and killed him.
Then the Lord said to Cain, “Where is Abel your brother?” He said, “I do not know. Am I my brother’s keeper?”

The bible only narrated how God’s preference of their sacrifice provoked Envy and Jealous in Cain. “And in the process of time it came to pass that Cain brought an offering of the fruit of the ground to the Lord. Abel also brought of the firstborn of his flock and of their fat. And the Lord respected Abel and his offering, but He did not respect Cain and his offering. And Cain was very angry, and his countenance fell.
So the Lord said to Cain, “Why are you angry? And why has your countenance fallen? If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it.” (Genesis 4:3-7).

Already sin had entered into the world by the sins of Adam and Eve, Cain allowing sin to dominate his mind speaks volumes which means he probably had decided to dominate the Universe not wanting any competitor blood relation not withstanding. He just wanted to be the only cook that will Crow.

That is human nature for you. Too Thirsty and Hungry for Absolute power to subdue perceived opposition instead of the earth as was commanded.
Dominion is trusting God that you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. Dominion is all about creativity having to be creative like God because we are made in His Own Image and likeness , to Enhance our environment not to Abuse it

“Truly I tell you, whatever you forbid and declare to be improper and unlawful on earth must be what is already forbidden in heaven, and whatever you permit and declare proper and lawful on earth must be what is already permitted in heaven” (Matthew 18:18).

How do you treat your environment? Do you consider it a place to “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” Or a place of Power intoxication where To Destroy ,Manipulate, kill, slander, and Subjugate.

Remember “Whatever you do to the least of my Brethren you do onto me” Dominion over all living creatures is not a license to abuse them, but a contract from God to care for them. We are to serve the best interests of all whose  lives touches ours; our relatives, Those who engages our services, or those we rendered  our services to, our colleagues or fellow workers, or those who work for us or who we meet even casually daily in our journey of life.

Therefore I pray that God will give you the boldness to stand your ground and walk in dominion. You are strengthened and empowered to remain victorious all the days of your life. No longer would you be restrained or held back but God will make all things to be under your feet from now on in Jesus name Amen .

Remain Blessed as you are empowered to have creative Dominion this month of November. We have entered the eleventh hour miracle where God will help us actualize every dream or our expectations for the year those that have not come true yet. HAPPY NEW MONTH 💐

Thanks for Reading. Blessing Onugha ❤️
