Genesis 1:28 (KJV) And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

So, our purpose as believers for being created is to dominate.  We are created to dominate in this earth.

Let’s get started and learn more about this dominion and how to fulfill your dominion mandate.

This whole idea of dominion is what God placed on mankind in the beginning.

Genesis 1:26 (KJV) And 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 fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Dominion means power of governing or controlling, the right of possession or use without being accountable.

Jesus told His disciples they were going to see a donkey tied up, loose it and bring it to me.  Why?  Jesus had to use the donkey to ride into Jerusalem for His triumphant time before His crucifixion and he needed it for His ministry.  Jesus told them if they ask what they are doing, just tell them the Lord has need of it and he will let it go.  That’s called dominion.

Matthew 15:29-31 (KJV) And Jesus departed from thence, and came nigh unto the sea of Galilee; and went up into a mountain, and sat down there. 30 And great multitudes came unto him, having with them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus’ feet; and he healed them: 31 Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel.

 He took dominion over the condition of people who were maimed.  He knew He had dominion over the whole earth and everything in it.  We are talking about a superiority mindset. 

I am going to show you from the Bible that God has restored to us this superiority mindset, that we as children of God need to be operating in.  We must portray lives that are profoundly different then how those who live that are unbelievers, profoundly different, not a little bit, but profound.  We are going to show you how much profound is profound.

Dominion means also to direct, control or dispose of at your direction.  It doesn’t make any difference.  You got control over it.

Because you have dominion and you have this potential to dominate this planet, God wouldn’t tell you to have dominion over this earth if you can’t do it.  He is telling you that because mankind originally could do that.  Don’t dare to complain to God when you are dominated, dominated by financial shortage, sickness and disease, unfair treatment and so forth.  It’s not God doing it.  You have dominion over the entire earth and everything in it.  We got to believe the Word of God that shows us this dominion over the entire earth and everything in it. We cannot go to the world and ask the world what is the truth.  They don’t know the truth.  They don’t even know how they are made.  They don’t teach about the spirit in the biology. They teach that you came from an ape or from a cell or a germ seed.  We know something different because we got the Bible and we can read what is the truth.  I hope you are like me, I am going with the Bible.  I am only saying there are certain things you cannot go to the world to discover.  They should come to the Church to discover some things.

This dominion, the power to govern or control, God gave Adam this mandate.

Genesis 1:28 (KJV) And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

 How did Adam operate?  Adam was made in the image, the exact duplicate of kind and the likeness of God.  Luke 3:38 called Adam the son of God.  As the son of God, he was made like God.  Now we are not talking about the body; because if we were just talking about that, that would be some kind of monstrosity with a white head and a black body or orange.  He is talking about you are a spirit and you were made in the image of God.  You have the same DNA.  It all comes from the inside.  So, Adam lived from the inside out.  So, when it is time to name animals he got them from God. Today we call it download.  So, he can have a download of what he needs to know and there it is.  Now when Adam sinned, or fell to low life as a mere man without God, he could no longer download like that.  His life was now linear which means progressing from one stage to another in a single series of steps. A good example of linear is like when you want a certain song on a CD then you must find track five and it starts playing that song.  Now if you are using old cassettes or the old eight tracks then you must wind down.  That is linear.

Linear, you must start in school in first grade and second grade and third grade.  You got to learn but Adam did not have to learn before he sinned; but he discerned.  Adam didn’t function by learning.  Adam just knew.

Now let’s see Jesus discerning the way Adam originally did.

John 6:5-6 (KJV) When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat? 6 And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do.

Adam just knew what the animals would be named.  See, you are never stuck for an answer anymore for you just know.

1 John 2:20 (KJV) But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.

 You just know all things.  You have an unction or the anointing from the Holy One and you just know.  Jesus just knew what He would do.

How about Daniel?  The king has a dream, Daniel Chapter 2.  He went to his sorcerers and told them to tell him what the dream meant.  The sorcerers told him to tell them what he dreamed, and we will tell you what it means.  The king told them he couldn’t tell them what he dreamed.  He told them if they were so smart then tell me what I dreamed and what to do.  They told him they could not do that.  He told them if they didn’t tell him then he would cut their bodies up and their houses shall be made a dunghill.  Daniel told the king he didn’t have to do that, and he could help him.  That night God revealed the secret to Daniel in a night vision, and he woke up and told the king what the king had dreamed.  Notice, problem solver.  So, you can solve problems.  Let’s go to Isaiah because it is talking about this whole idea.

Isaiah 10:27 (KJV) And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.

 He is talking about in that day the anointing is going to come.

Joel 2:28 (KJV) And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; …

Not just on kings and priests and on those who are specifically called for a function, but anoint everybody; because that’s the way it was intended to be from the Garden, restoring the years.

 Isaiah 11:1 (KJV) And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:

 The black race came from Africa. That’s their roots but this is not talking about that kind of root.  He is talking about your spiritual roots because you got born again and when you got born again you came from another family.  You got natural roots, but you got some other DNA inside of you that is the DNA of your Father God.

Isaiah 11:2 (KJV) And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom…

 The spirit of the Lord is one aspect of the anointing.

Isaiah 11:2 (KJV) And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;

 All of those will rest upon those who have the anointing and four of those have to do with your mind.  So, you don’t just send your mind out to lunch when God tells you to do something.

God told Adam to not eat of the tree. Satan come and tempts Eve but satan wasn’t after Eve, but he was after Adam because Adam had the seed. The seed is a power thing that transfers the future.  So, he gets Adam to sin and now everything falls.  The fall of man in the Garden is where he fell from discerning to learning, where he fell from revelation to information.  We are in the information age. So now Adam lost more than something to eat.  He lost his fellowship with his Father.  He was no longer one.  He now became two.  So, separated from God, Adam made himself clothes from fig leaves.  Adam lost his mind.

Where man is operating right now is at a fallen state of mind.  That’s why when he creates something, it has side effects; take two teaspoons of this, now it might cause blindness, or your liver might shut down but then come back and see me and we will work it out or just take it till you are dead.  Now this is a need for mankind to come back to where God had created him because he is trying to matriculate in this life without the anointing, without download from the wisdom of God. 

Church is supposed to be your school.  Your purpose for being created was for dominion and not to go to school.  The reason why you are going to school is because is because you fell from discern to learning.  So, God speaks to the preacher or the teacher down in their spirit because they are living from the inside out like Adam and they give the download from God to you.  Those downloads make the body of Christ strong and fully persuaded and have faith in their dominion and so they now rule as kings in this earth by Jesus Christ who lives on the inside of them and live by the anointing of the Holy Spirit just like Jesus did and Adam at the beginning and they know all things.
