Knowing & Walking in Your Spiritual Authority – Part IX

Taking our Dominion

Genesis 1:26-27 (KJV) 26 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.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

God gave Adam dominion over the entire earth. It was his job to subdue it and take his authority over it. But – how was he to do it? The same way God does things – with His Words. Adam was to take control over the earth WITH his words, just like God does. He was to act and talk just like God. How else was he going to keep the elephants from stomping all over the tomatoes?

Now let’s see what Jesus says.

John 17:21 (KJV) 21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

His prayer was for us to be one with the Father in the same way that He, Jesus, was one with the Father. This is awesome!

The word one in Greek is heis, which means one to the exclusion of another. It means the exact kind. We were made to be an exact duplication of God’s own kind and therefore, able to operate in the same faith that He has. I know this sounds incredible but I didn’t write this. It’s God’s Word.

John 1:1(KJV) 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Jesus is the Word and by Him were all things created. We are in Him and we’re to act like He acts – calling things that are not as though they were. [Romans 4:17]
