Operating in Dominion and Authority?

Dear Believer,

Are you operating in the Dominion and the Authority that Jesus restored to you?  Whether you were born again this morning, or have been for many years, did you know that you can walk the earth and do the same works and greater works than Jesus?  Jesus said you would be able to (John 14:12).

In Christ You Are A Force to Be Reckoned With

You can co-labor with God (1 Cor 3:9).  God wants to set His creation free of bondage, from all sickness and disease, and above all He wants to restore His relationship with man through man’s confession and belief in Jesus (Rom 10:9).  God wants to use YOU to partner with him to get all of this done!

God the Father wants you to continue what his Son Jesus showed as an example when he was walking the earth over 2,000 years ago.  Jesus has commanded us in Mark 16 and Matthew 28 to go out into the world and to preach the Gospel.  This includes demonstrating the Kingdom of Heaven, just as Jesus did.  Jesus is with you wherever you go, and He will continue to confirm his Word with signs and wonders following.   If you are waiting to be told to do this, Jesus has already told you in His Word:

 

Mark 16:15 (NASB)

15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. 16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned. 17 These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

Maybe like me, you never understood any of this, or no one ever showed you.   Perhaps you thought it was only Jesus who was laid hands on people.  Or that only the elders of the church were responsible for praying the prayer of faith for people.

The truth is, Jesus is still the healer, but he wants to use his believers to work through them.  He wants you to go about doing good, with him, and allowing him, through you, to heal all who are oppressed by the devil, for Jesus is with you!

The truth is, you as a follower of Christ CAN change the world for the better, in Christ.  You CAN bring heaven to earth, the very thing that Jesus spoke of when he was teaching his disciples what to pray (Matthew 6:9-13).

The audio teaching below covers some key scriptures which I encourage you to study, and then act out yourself.  Only Believe.

You are amazing in God!   Let us all make a dent in this fallen world.  A lot of dents amounts to a huge impact in the destruction of the enemy’s works.  We must bring Heaven to Earth so that what you see on earth matches what it would look like in Heaven.

Let us let our lights so shine upon men, Amen? (Matthew 5:16)

God Has Given Us The World

Jesus created this earth, but God wanted to have man and woman rule over it and subdue it.   We find this in:

Genesis 1:26-28 (NASB)

26 Then God said, “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.” 27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, 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.”

 

We also see it confirmed in:

Psalm 115:16 (NASB)

16 The heavens are the heavens of the Lord,
But the earth He has given to the sons of men.

In Psalm 8:4-6, we see we are to rule over the works of God’s own hands:

Psalm 8:4-6 (NASB)

What is man that You take thought of him,
And the son of man that You care for him?
Yet You have made him a little lower than God,
And You crown him with glory and majesty!
You make him to rule over the works of Your hands;
You have put all things under his feet,

In Luke 10:19 Jesus gives out His authority for Believers to do just this.  Indeed after the cross Jesus went to hell to take back the keys.   Those were the keys that Adam and Eve originally forfeited to Lucifer (Satan) in the Garden of Eden when they betrayed God by sinning against Him by accepting the temptation of the devil himself.

Now it is up to us Believers to use this authority, to subdue the earth, that earth that God GAVE to man to run and have dominion over.   People often say “God’s in control”.   If He was in control, the world would already be perfect, since every good thing comes from above (James 1:17).   He put US in charge of this earth, and that may explain to you and I why the earth is in the state it’s in.   Yes, we are living in a fallen world, but that does not mean we should leave it the way it is. 

God has given us the world, so let’s you and I make a difference.   Jesus had good reason to tell His disciples to pray this way:  for God’s Will to be done on earth as it is in Heaven.   Why else would we need to pray this if God’s Will was already being done on earth by default? It is plain to see that God’s Will is not always accomplished.

You can make a difference, laying hands on one person a day, you can make a difference speaking life into someone through love.   You can make a difference, and you have been anointed to do just that! (Isa 61).   This is no pep talk, this is serious business.  People’s lives are on the line.    To top it all, it’s a commandment of Jesus to do this from the Great Commission (Mark 16:14-20):

The Disciples Commissioned

14 Afterward He appeared to the eleven themselves as they were reclining at the table; and He reproached them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they had not believed those who had seen Him after He had risen. 15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. 16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned. 17 Thesesigns will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

19 So then, when the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God. 20 And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them, and confirmed the word by the signs that followed.]

[And they promptly reported all these instructions to Peter and his companions. And after that, Jesus Himself sent out through them from east to west the sacred and imperishable proclamation of eternal salvation.]
