April 19: Exercising Kingdom Dominion

Matthew 16:19

“And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”

Jeremiah 1:10

See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.

.

The kingdom of God is supreme and reigns over every other kingdom (1 Chronicles 29:11). The Lord is the Most High, so His Kingdom is higher than everyone and everything. Therefore, the authority and power of God’s kingdom is supreme, final and ultimate. Our opening Scripture opens with the words of the Lord Jesus Christ to Peter, telling him that He will give unto himthe keys of the kingdom of heaven, and that whatsoever he shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatsoever he shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. The Lord speaks here of the keys of the kingdom of heaven. These are keys of dominion. They are keys that make for authority and power. He says because of these keys, whatsoever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatsoever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. In exercising kingdom authority, we must have a firm grip of these keys.

The will of God has to be done on earth even as it is in heaven. There is no sickness in heaven; neither is there lack, nor sin, nor oppression. There ought not to be all that in the earth. That is the reason God left us here to occupy till He returns. We are meant to wield and exercise kingdom authority here on earth in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. We are here to put the devil where he belongs in the Name of Jesus, and that’s under our feet. The devil and his cohorts are defeated foes. Jesus has led captivity captive and He has given us the victory of everyone and everything in the realm of darkness; and in His Name we have the upper hand over demonic forces of darkness. Hallelujah!!! That’s one of the keys of the kingdom the right to use the Name of Jesus Christ in combat against demonic forces with absolute confidence that we have the victory already. You are a king and your purpose is to exercise dominion. Your preordination is to enforce the will of God on the face of the earth. As a king and a member of God’s Royal family, you cannot enforce a will you do not understand. You cannot exercise dominion beyond how much of God’s Word that you know. God’s Word is His will and you need to preoccupy yourself with knowing the will of the Father by meditating in the Word and putting it to work. You must have a clearcut understanding of God’s will such that irrespective of the situations and circumstances around you, you know His will like the back of your hand. Amen!

My Solid Front (Confession):

I declare that I am a king and I exercise dominion by divine design. I am an ambassador of the kingdom, therefore, I take over the systems of this world and I enforce the influence of the Kingdom in this world. Amen!
