And thou shalt love the Lord the God with all thy heart, and with all they soul, and with all the mind and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. Mark 12: 30 (KJV, Bible).
And now these three remain faith hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Cor. 13: 13 (NIV Bible)
He that loveth not knoweth not God. For God is Love. 1 John 4:8 (KJV Bible)
One who has love has God and one who has God has all. All things surrender to God. Love is having God as a man.
The complete man is the man of dominion. The scripture says:
“And God said let us make man in our mage, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the flesh of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So god created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him, male and female created he them”.
And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiple, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: a and have dominion over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. (Gen. 1:26-28 KJV Bible)
Therefore the man God created is not an under man God an over man. Which means he is the man that stays on top. He controls all other things an earth.
So, Dominion came to man as a result of God’s love to him. Any where man is dominating love must be at the centre.
What is Dominion?
Dominion means controlling your environment. The environment of man that he should control is the earth. There is no limit to what will make of you says the Lord.
Dominion mandate has come on you from now hence forth to control your environment in Jesus name.
LOVE PRINCIPLES THAT LEADS TO DOMINION
“If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity and their years in pleasures”. Job 36:11
Obedience is the cure to every problem of man. Man’s problem has solution rooted in the scripture. Once you identify what God says about a problem in the scriptures, solution has come. For instance, one who lacks God’s presence can locate the scripture that say, “if you love me keep my commandment” and such a person will begin to enjoy God’s anifest presence.
The scripture says Jesus answered and said unto him. If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abide with him. (John 14:23)
Love is so important to the Christian faith that Jesus hinges everything about Christianity on it.
Jesus was asked, “Master which is the great commandment in the law?”
Jesus said unto him, “thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, with all thy soul, with all thy mind and with all thy strength. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like unto it, thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself”. On these two commandments hangs all the law and the prophets.
From all indications, it is obvious that true love begins with God and over flows to men. The depth of your love for God is usually reflected in your love for people.
Naturally , you are more comfortable staying around those who love you, you feel more at home with them and are constantly drawn towards them. The bible says two people cannot walk together or cooperate if they do not agree or have like minds (Amos 3:3)
God is love, and the scripture says if you do not have love, you do not have God (1 John 4: 7-8). If God is love and you walk in hatred, there is no way you can carry His presence, because two cannot walk together except they be agreed. Until you become a true lover of God and other people, you cannot carry His presence. His presence is where dominion lies.
No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
“Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his spirit.” (1 John 4: 12-13)
Walking in obedience expresses your love for God. God becomes your friend when you walk in love and if God is for you who can be against you (Rom. 8:31)? All your enemies are rendered helpless, because of the presence of God that you carry through love (Psalm 114: 1-8). Receive the grace to the obedient to God.
- SOUL WINNING
“Go therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the father, and of the son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Teaching them to observe ask things whatsoever I have commandant you: and, lo, I am with you always, ever unto the end of the worded”.
Doing what God said to you takes you to a world of no limit. In other words “As you go to influence the nations, your friends, neighours and members of your family for my kingdom, lo, I will be with you. You are guaranteed of my presence, if you will be committed to my mission of reaching the world. Purposefully getting involved to reap the over – ripe harvest of souls on earth guarantees His ever- abiding presence.
After Jesus healed the mad man of Gadara and he wanted to follow Him, Jesus said to him in (Mark 5: 19-20)… “Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.
And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him; and men did marvel”.
Following God’s principle in the bible, it is proven that going out for Jesus and the kingdom of God is a cardinal price to pay for God’s divine presence. Jesus said to the man go home to thy friends …” That is “show your friends the effect of redemption in your life tell them what Jesus has done for you and others. As you market your faith among your friends, His presence will abide with you”.
Do you know that the harvest of the world is overripe? There is an unlimited opportunity to secure divine presence perpetually as you influence your environment for Jesus. His presence goes with people that are on the go for him.
The Bible says, “… The Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following”. The Samaritan woman at the well went to tell other about Christ “Come , see a man which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ she said to the people”. (John 4:29).
We have seen that soul winning does not only guarantee divine presence it is also rewarding. Paul said’
Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own laobur. (1 Corinthians 3:8).
It also ensure that you are a candidate for divine health (John 15:1-2). When you win souls into the kingdom, God removes every parasite troubling your body, so you can bear more fruits. Prosperity and all kinds of good success is at the mercy of whomever that wins souls for God’
s kingdom also gives you a prayer advantage with God ( John 15: 16) and God makes a star out of you (Dan 12:3, Prov. 11: 30). If you must maintain the flow of sings and wonders in your life the divine presence is a vital requirement. When you succeed in maintaining His ever- abiding presence, you stand out among men. It shall be said of you, “what manner of man is this that such mighty works are done by his hands? That shall be your portion. You shall consciously be in the sit of celebration and of the centre of God’s will in Jesus name … Amen.
- THE POTENCY OF YOUR WORDS
Every word you speak is a seed. Negative word produces negative result. Positive word produces positive result.
Four things make your words potent.
First “God confirms your word” He is committed to performing whatever you say. God has not changed, He is the one that confirmeth the word of his servant, and performeth the counsel of his messangers…” (Isa. 44:26).
Secondly, “your words put the angels to work”. They carry out your words, whether positive or negative. No wonder the Bible warns in (Ecclesiastes 5:6)
“Suffer not they mouth to cause thy flesh to sin, neither say thou before the angle that it was an error: wherefore should God be angry at thy voice, and and destroy the work of thine hands?”
If you read through the scriptures. You will discover that God gave a similar warning to Moses and the children of Israel in the wilderness (Exodus: 23:20-21). Angels can be turned on in your favour by your words of faith. The three Hebrew boys in Babylon enjoyed angelic intervention because they spoke the right words before being thrown into the fiery furnace (Dan 3: 15-25).
The third reason why your words are powerful enough to command signs is because every word is a seed”. The word of God is the seed (Luke 8:11-15). As a true child of God therefore your words are also seeds (Psalm 82:6).
Since whatever a man sows is what he reaps, the things you say are what will happen to you. So, begin to say exactly what you want to see.
The subtlety of words as seeds is that it takes time to germinate. Carefully, think about it for a moment. Is it the same day you sow a seed you expect a harvest?
No! Therefore, it is not always the first time you say a thing that you see it. But keep on saying the right word in faith, until the harvest manifests. The more contrary things look, the more you talk what you expect them to be, and you shall have what you say.
The forth reason, why your word is potent is that “your word gives you control over all opposition” It is obvious that “Every close- mouthed” Christian is a victim of oppression. Open your mouth wide and God will fill it (Psalm 81:10). He has given you a mouth and wisdom that no opponent can withstand (Luke 21:15). All the enemies of your voice has bowed, so start speaking loud and clear (Psalm 18:44-45).
Consciously be aware that if you must enjoy, the supernatural, you need to mind what you say about your life, person, business, career, marriage, property, children, etc. until you know how to use your tongue correctly , you can never enjoy a colorful future.
Today , your colorful destiny will begin to be a reality to you in Jesus name.
“Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience and of faith unfeigned”. (1 Timothy 1:5)
“Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the spirit into unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:
The life of purity is required in maintaining a supernatural life style. Jesus was declared to be the son of God with power according to the spirit of holiness (Rom 1: 3-4). It is therefore the effectual working of the spirit of holiness in men that make sons out of children, and causes the sons of God to emerge gloriously.
Anointing or unction (power) is tied to consecration, and manifestation is a natural by product of unction. This means that at the root of your manifestation is consecration. When you respond to the commands and dictates of the god of this world (the devil) you are a child. As long as the sin nature has the final say in your steps you die, for until sin goes, signs would not flow. Sin is the greatest enemy of the flow of signs. Living a life of purity makes you worthy to do God pleasing signs.
Therefore, your place in God is a function of your walk with Him. The sin nature has tied the church down to children, and as such her manifestations have been delayed.
If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified and meet for the masters use and prepared unto every good work.
The consecration you keep and your lifestyle, to a great extent determines the quality of power you carry. Until you are able to successfully and continuously guard yourself against the bondage of the elements of this would you cannot be considered a son. And until you are considered a son, you are not in that place of exclusive presence for the sons of God. I declare you a son of the kingdom of God in Jesus name … Amen.
- SPIRITUAL SMARTNESS
Spiritual smartness means operating in speed with the wisdom of God. God’s word is sharp and can produce immediate desired result when love is at the centre.
“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit and of the thoughts and intents of the heart”. (Heb. 4:12)
How often do you respond to God’s word when he speaks to you. Your quick response is a sign of your true love to Him. As quick as the word is, it will only answer to quick responses from you. There was a man brought to the miracle pool of Bethesda for 38 years. Seeking healing! He was not a man of acting but of explanation, so he laid there watching everyone else get healed and leave him by the pool for 38 years (John 5:2-9).
Do you know that every time God’s word is being troubled; every sensitive person steps into it. Men of action are naturally men of manifestations. If you are smart enough to move at the instance of every revelation, you will never lack manifestation . That is as soon as God shows it to you, you are on the move.
Brethren, it takes spiritual smartness to command and maintain the flow of the miraculous. Every time a word drops in your heart, immediately step into action with it.
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock. If anyone hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in him, and will sup with him, and he with me. (Revelation 3:20)
The scripture above explains real manifestation. So, every time God knocks on your door with an insight from His word, He is only calling on you and saying “Do you want it? Rise up and catch it”. The ministry of the Holy Spirit comes mostly on sudden frequencies. While peter was yet speaking in the house of Cornelius, the Holy Ghost suddenly fell on them. Also on the day of Pentecost suddenly there was a mighty rushing wind … kind they were all filled with the Holy Ghost” (Acts 2:2-4). If the Holy Spirit’s manifestations are on sudden frequencies, then it takes people who are hypersensitive to catch it you will not miss the hour of your visitation. Receive divine enablement to love the Almighty God in Jesus names… Amen.
That situation of your life, family, business, academic, ministry that only need divine visitation to bring solution shall supernaturally be settled with overwhelming evidence of the gospel in the name of Jesus, Amen.
