Kingdom Authority Series – How to Walk in Dominion (Gen 1:26-28)
We are entering what the Bible calls the fullness of time, and much is at stake. God is positioning us to advance His kingdom into every realm held captive by the enemy. To be successful, we must understand our authority in Christ—what some call "kingdom authority" or "dominion rule." Dominion rule has become a regular confession among many believers.
God has called us to be His kingdom representatives on earth, to establish a righteous model. We need more than authority to do that. When we identify the areas over which He has given us influence and commit to being agents of change in them, everything we need to transform the culture and cause the lost to be drawn to Him is made available to us—favor, creativity, power, wisdom and so on.
Taking dominion therefore requires more than simply wielding authority in the name of Jesus. It requires knowledge and the understanding and rightful use of our position in Christ. To discover what that position is, we need to look at God's original plan and purpose for mankind.
Point #1 God’s Original Plan
Having made man in His image, God provided Adam and Eve, the earth's new stewards, with intellect, creative abilities and an innate gift of leadership to rule and reign. Our Father is always about the business of His kingdom, and He created man with the same calling and design. It was a natural outcome that man be given the responsibility to manage creation, including the earth and all living creatures.
To understand, let's look more closely at this original stewardship appointment. Kabas, the Hebrew word for "subdue," means "to bring into subjection, to dominate." It suggests that the party being subdued is not willing to submit. Genesis 1:28 implies that creation was unwilling to submit to man's leading. Man would have to bring creation into order by exerting his strength. Radah, the Hebrew word for "dominion," refers not to God's rule and responsibility but to man's. It means "to manage or reign from a position of sovereignty." God fashioned us to share His own authority over His creation.
Adam was to live and move in a kingly manner over the earth as a son of God along with the incredible privileges and weighty responsibilities of this position. Dominion was his birthright and pleasure. But after Adam succumbed to Satan's deception in the Garden of Eden, the enemy established strongholds in all areas of life to hinder our kingdom mandate.
Thankfully, God made a way for us to regain our kingdom authority. He did not forget His covenant plan. After Adam and Eve sinned, He sent Jesus, the second Adam, to save man from his lost condition and provide a better covenant (see Heb. 8:6).
Point #2 Authority Restored
During Jesus' earthly ministry, the kingdom of God was His focus. His teachings and parables explained the truths of this kingdom and how to secure an inheritance in it. Fully God and fully man, He moved in kingdom authority.
Jesus came to establish His rule and the government of God by warring against and defeating Satan and his stronghold of sin and death. By Jesus' sinless life and sacrificial death, He reclaimed the dominion given to Satan in the fall. (see Matt. 28:18)
Jesus used His authority to disarm the enemy and all his demonic forces and powers. (see Col. 2:15).
"Disarmed" also means "stripped." Christ stripped Satan and all his followers of any power or authority they once had. He restored all that was relinquished at the fall and positioned us to partner with God in releasing His kingdom. How does this work? At salvation, we are given the profound privilege of being adopted into the family of God and becoming His sons and daughters. (see Eph. 1:5; Gal. 4:5).
When we are born into God's family through Jesus, we are automatically blessed with the legal rights and privileges of a child. Though at first we are immature spiritually, we are considered adult sons/daughters who can enjoy the Father's wealth and exercise all the glorious privileges and responsibilities of adult sonship/daughtership. We do not have to wait to enjoy the spiritual riches we have in Christ. (see Gal. 3:26-27).
We are also God's heirs. (see Gal. 4:7). “Heir," means "the recipient of divine promises." An heir receives his/her allotted possession by right of sonship/daughtership. (see Rom. 8:17). Because we are not only heirs but also co-heirs with Christ, all that belongs to Jesus as the firstborn also belongs to us. A co-heir is a fellow receiver, a joint participant in all the Father has.
Point #3 Moving From Defense to Offense
For too long we have been playing defense instead of running offense. The enemy still has illegal possession of the ‘football’ because we allow it. We are so busy defending ourselves that we don't realize we have the right to grab the ball from him and run for a touchdown with confidence, faith and authority. It is time for us to stop asking ourselves, "What do I have to defend myself from today?" and to start asking God, "What can I do to advance Your kingdom on the earth?" Then when He gives us His game plan, we can step onto the field with the ball, running in the direction He tells us, and expect to see individuals, families, workplaces, cities and nations transformed for His glory.
We cannot allow the enemy to continue to steal the purpose for which we were created—to exert influence, rule, authority and stewardship on the earth. Creation is waiting with eager expectation for the revealing of the sons of God and deliverance from the enemy's hand (see Rom. 8:19-21). Souls are awaiting salvation. Now is the season to run with determination the race set before us, as the writer of Hebrews encourages us to do (see Heb. 12:1). We are destined to rule in life with the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. Let's move into our rightful position as righteous sons and daughters establishing the dominion standard. (see Matt. 13:43)
