GOD’S DOMINION COUNTERSIGN

The limit of God’s word depends on the receiver. When the word is received and modeled into a preconceived notion, we limit it’s efficacy, we, suppress its supremacy and authority over us. No matter what scientists seem to have found out about the world, the truth concerning God’s intention for making this earth and man can only be unravelled from the given word of God. The true meaning of science should be the study of God and the things God has made. You can’t perfectly understand this earth and the entire universe when you keep removing God out of the picture. The book of Genesis for instance contains the most accurate documentation showing the origin of the world. No other document beats that!
:
The world consist of three elements namely time, space and matter. We can find the elements in Genesis as the Bible says in Genesis 1:1 “in the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” The beginning is time, the heaven is space and the earth is matter which includes the water because it has weight and occupies space.
:
It would seem illogical to scientists that God was in time to create time but that’s not what the Bible communicates. When we see “In the beginning…” we should know it isn’t a complete sentence on its own, what beginning was the Bible talking about? Looking at the context of what was being narrated, the Bible wasn’t talking about the beginning of God, it wasn’t even talking about the beginning of the 3rd heaven but the beginning of the creation of the earth and of course the entire universe. It means “in the beginning when God started creating the earth…”, the word translated heaven from the original Hebrew word means “atmosphere or sky”. Paul referred to the heaven where it is assumed God hosts the Angels and heavenly beings as third heaven. This wasn’t the heaven Genesis 1 talks about as there was no account on how God made the 3rd heaven.
:
When God commanded light to come forth, light came out of Him. Every single thing God called forth came to existence out of God and for His own purpose. The Bible says in Romans 11:36 “For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.” When scientists argue there was a big bang; an explosion of light, they don’t want to think of where that light came from. God’s word manifests with power and when He said “let there be…” it means “allow light to manifest.” It shows the light was already in existence and He only called it forth. All things are complete in Him.
:
God’s word keeps us in shape, it brings the character of God into every situation. God’s word is enough for every given circumstances and if He says you are righteous, your opinion doesn’t count. No matter how much you want to be a male if you’re female, you’re still female. In the same way, if God calls you righteous, no matter how you see yourself, you’re righteous. How you see yourself can only help you do better as who you are, it can affect your disposition and how you respond to God, it doesn’t affect how God sees you.
:
God created everything else by speaking forth His words and having whatever He called forth come into existence. But in the making of the man, God said something more profound, something He never said before. He said “let us make man in our own image and in our likeness…” There was never anything that was or has been created in God’s image except man.
:
Man was created to be as timeless as God, man was created to control time and not to be controlled by time. Man wasn’t designed to become relevant with time, it was man that should give relevance to time. God created man to function in eternity and the real man is Spirit and not the body. Joshua had a revelation of this and he took authority over the time. He ceased time and night never came until he was satisfied. Joshua knew that success isn’t determined by time, he knew God originally intended man to be in charge of time. When God gave us dominion, we were given dominion over time, space and matter because that is what consists the universe. When Jesus walked on water, He showed us that man can exercise dominion over matter, when He rose on the third day, He showed us man can exercise dominion over time and decide the times. when He ascended, He showed us man can exercise dominion over space.
:
The Bible says that God ceased from creating anything the moment He made man. This is because God designed man to continue the process of creation. God is the creator but handed that creative ability over to man. In Genesis 1:26 we see something profound. God said “let us…” and also said “let them…” He made us so that we can make other things as we are made in His image and in His character. It is the dominion image and dominion mandate of God that gives man license to manifest in that capacity. When God made man, He made a representative figure that will operate like He operates.
:
When God declared “let them have dominion…” He wasn’t making a suggestion, it wasn’t an instruction but a command to manifest our potential. When we understand who Adam was before the fall, we can have a glimpse of who God designed us to be. Adam after the fall is not the picture of the man God created, it’s not even similar. It’s entirely opposite.
:
Adam after the fall was a picture of a man who had lost dominion, a defeated king whose regalia has been ripped off! The fallen Adam can’t be the image of a living God. One might argue Adam took the a similar shape as God but when God talked about making man in His image, He wasn’t talking about the physical appearance of man. I will explain.
:
In Genesis 1, God made man and in Genesis 2, God formed man. The former was the making of the real man who is a Spirit and man was inside of God. God made man inside of Him and not outside of Him. The moment He declared it, man came to be but that man was inside of Him. In Genesis 2, what God formed from the soil was a lifeless body, the body is not the man but an object with which man can operate. Man needed the physical body to be physically functional on earth. After God had made the body, what He breathed into the man wasn’t air as wrongly thought. The word translated as breath is “Spirit.” God breath into the body the living Spirit of man which was inside of Him and man came into physical existence. It was this spirit of man that was created in God’s image and not the body.
:
This further explains why God said man would die if he eats of the fruit of evil and good, He wasn’t referring to the body but the Spirit. Man became spiritually dead after the fall and because there was no life in the Spirit, the body of man could only last but for a moment. I needed to make this clear. However, our focus isn’t on the fallen man because it gives us no picture of who we were meant to be. The fallen Adam produced it’s own kind and not the kind of God who God wanted man to be. The Psalmist knew this and he cried in Psalm 51:5 “Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me.”
:
He wasn’t saying he was born out of wedlock neither was he referring to the sins his parents committed. He was simply recalling that he was born into the sinful world from a sinful nature! It had nothing to do with what he did or what his parents did.
:
The Bible says in Romans 5:12 “Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned…”
:
You see that? Sin entered into the world as a result of the fall! Adam produced offsprings of his own kind, people who are naturally sinful and this way death was unrestrained for there wasn’t anyone who was born after the image of God except Jesus whose birth was only facilitated by the Spirit of God for the purpose of saving man. Paul also wrote concerning this saying in Ephesians 2:3
:
“Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest”
:
Look closely at the verse, we were not children of wrath because of what we did, we were children of wrath because of the nature of sin! But glory, hallelujah! We are saved and we are children of God who are born of His Spirit! The reason we need to know Adam before the fall is because it paints a picture of how super our union with God is. We aren’t like Adam anymore, we are born again and have been made like Jesus. The Bible says in 1 John 4:17
:
“Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.”
:
Adam before the fall was operating in the God-capacity and he had intimate relationship and fellowship with God. The Bible said God would always come in the cool of the day to fellowship with Adam. There was no barrier between Eden and Heaven. But the moment Adam fell into sin, even the voice of God scared him and that intimacy was cut short. He handed authority over to the devil by obeying the devil. Who you obey becomes your master!
:
I believe Adam before the fall practiced the supernatural. I believe Adam walked into the sea without difficulty because he had to name everything that was created including sea creatures. Adam operated in the supernatural and without the supernatural, dominion is just a scam.
:
Let’s talk about God because we’ve got a lot to learn of Him as those born of Him. The more we know Him, the more we know ourselves. To study the New creature is to study God.
:
The term “God” refers to an office and not a name. His name is Jesus which is the name given to us by which man shall be saved. Jesus is the physical manifestation of Yahweh and the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Jesus at work in the present age. Refer to my teachings on that theme for clarity. In that “God-Office” we are members of the cabinet. “President” isn’t a name but an office, when you see “the presidency”, it’s not talking of a man but the president and his team. The same honor giving to the president is given to the presidency. We were made part of that God-office in Christ Jesus. When Jesus asked us to pray in His name, He was asking us to pray in His own authority. We can stand and speak words and it begins to pass because we are standing on the irrevocable license of Christ Jesus which has been given to us.
:
The Psalmist prophetically declared “you are Gods.” God can only produce after His own kind and the Bible says concerning this “He predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will.” – Ephesians 1:5
:
We can’t function in dominion when we are ignorant of these things. What Jesus came to do was to restore man from the fallen state into a more higher position than the first Adam. Jesus came in our place that we might stand in His place. It is in Christ that we are born into the nature of God. Jesus came to reintroduce a project started in Genesis on a better pedestal. The believer in Christ is a life giving Spirit (1Corinthians 15:45). The Bible says out of the belly shall flow rivers of living waters. Not just water but living water and it’s rivers and not drops of water! The believer in Christ is a supernatural creature because we can birth what is physically bigger than us.
:
Jesus showed us a clear picture of how to exercise dominion. That was the purpose of living on earth much longer. Jesus would have died from birth and we’d still be saved because a holy blood was needed for our salvation. He lived to fulfill scriptures and He ran ministry before His death to teach us how to live in Dominion. Prophets of old parted the sea but Jesus walked on it to show us dominion over matter, He resurrected in three days as He said, to show us we can exercise do very time. He ascended to heaven to show us we can exercise dominion over space. That is the difference, we can cause mountains to melt but the bigger truth is that we can fly over the mountain top.
:
The believer has a different configuration and Ezekiel 36:26 explains it happened. It was internal work that reflects on the outside with time. He gave us a new heart and a new Spirit and didn’t end at that. The Holy Spirit got embedded in our Spirit as a seal that we are inseparable from God. The Bible says in Ephesians 1:13; 4:30
:
“In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation– having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise… Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.”
:
The Holy Spirit cannot be separated from our own Spirit. This is how Christ lives in us. Christ lives is us expressing His character through us. Christ is not just preached, Christ is manifested. Since we have the Spirit of God in us we don’t strive to enter into the realm of the Spirit, we are already functioning in that realm.
:
To function in dominion as believers, we ought to know our identity in Christ, our inheritance in Christ and our ability of Christ. Talking about ability, the Bible says in Philippians 4:32 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Christ has become our ability! You can’t manifest in the capacity of Christ when you do not believe it. God has given you that ability in Christ but it becomes functional when you believe it. Believing is receiving and not believing is rejecting. We believe by faith, by merit we may not be able to receive it but thanks to God for His grace which has appeared to all men, making is qualified for what we never qualified for.
:
There are things that doesn’t become yours until you believe it without giving room for all the distractions and counter opinion that seem to be flying in. You can live and walk in dominion! Even while all things will be perfected when Jesus appears physically, you can enjoy the life of God already at work in you.

This is God’s Dominion Countersign.

God bless you.
