For if by the one man’s [a]offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.)
God has made us kings and priests to reign on the earth, which means that we are a kingdom of priests made by God to reign on the earth. Therefore, the earth is our place of dominion, but remember we are seated together with Christ in heavenly places, far above every dominion and might in this world and in that which is to come. We reign with Christ from the place of highest authority over all the earth. Hallelujah!!! We are not beggars, we are not slaves, we are not servants; we are kings and priests, we are a kingdom of priests with the sceptre of righteousness in our hand. Dominion has been given to us in the Name of Jesus Christ over Satan, demons, fear, lack, sin, sicknesses, and diseases. Hallelujah!!!
Now that we know our dominion status; now that we know who we are in Christ, how then do we live out or manifest our dominion? First, in God’s kingdom, we rule and reign by the Word, speaking words consistent with the Word of God. The Bible tells in Hebrews 1:3 that the King of kings, Himself, upholds or reigns over all things by the Word of His power. When God gave Jeremiah a charge over the nations and the kingdoms in Jeremiah 1:9, He stretched forth His hand and touched his mouth, and said, “I have put my word in your mouth. See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms…” We rule by the words of our mouth consistent with and possessing the same content with the Word. Also, when God sent Moses to Pharaoh in Egypt, the Word tells us that God said to him “I will be with your mouth and see, I have made thee a god unto Pharaoh” (Exodus 6:28-30; 7:1). God put His Word in his mouth. So, when he spoke God’s Word to Pharaoh, by that Word, God made him a god or ruler to Pharaoh. He ruled over the land of Egypt. The Bible says the fame of Moses was all over the land; he was greatly feared. Why? Because he had the Word of the Lord.
Beloved, we rule in God’s kingdom by the Word of the Lord. Psalms 110:1 tells us, “The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies”. What does that mean? The rod of His strength here speaks of the Word of His authority, the Word of His power. That Word is the rod of dominion. When that Word goes forth, the power of God is released to make good what it claims or declares.
My Solid Front (Confession):
In the Name of Jesus, I declare that the Word of the Lord in my mouth is potent. Therefore, I do not allow corrupt communication to proceed from my mouth; I speak words of grace and increase, words of comfort to them that are weary in the Name of Jesus.
