THINGS YOU NEED IN 2016- KNOW YOURSELF III - DOMINION.

(C) DOMINION

Good morning friends, how has the week been? I am here today with the concluding outline of 'knowing yourself'.
Dominion- Dominance or Power through legal authority.
For this week I will be writing on dominance and power, taking power on a new blog post entirely. I pray this piece blesses you.
Dominance

Genesis  1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
Dominion is what God gives to men that are in his image and after his likeness, it's God's gift to to you because of who you are. Therefore you can't exercise dominion if you don't manifest your God given image and likeness.
Dominance is not something you pray for, its a gift from God in you that manifests when you manifest Him.
Have you ever come across a dominating person?
I am not talking about a controlling fellow nor a selfish person that allures all credits to himself.
I am talking about a person that manifests God in his dealings, I'm talking about that man that seems perfect in your circle, group, gatherings, church, etc.

With much joy in my heart i am writing this because dominance is a thing of the spirit and not the physical. It comes from the inside!- You utter what's in your altar.
 
Dominance is not by measures of stature; physique, strength and all, its a measure of Unction! Unction begats the action called-Dominance.

The gift of dominance received by man from God is such a complete package, how do I mean?

Psalms  24:1 The earth is the LORD's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

God did not just give you and I the earth, but the fullness, the world and the dwellers!
(I) The earth:
a. The fish of the sea- You talking about dominion even in the sea? Yes! Of course!!
How come a man's authority is limited here on earth?
The thing is even your breath is not limited on earth not to talk of your dominance.
A lot of us even have phobia for water bodies as a results of stories, imaginations and improper orientation about them, but God gave man dominion over fishes. Fishes here is signifying all that you can ever think  about in the water.
Permit me explain further by going spiritual- smiling; He gave you dominion over familiar spirits of waters, marine spirits and all.
How come fishes of the seas now take chances in your life? It's just a sign that you are lacking dominance. 'Jesus Christ gave us an insight by walking on the sea... Even Peter did; so you can!'
b. The foul of the air- the foul here denotes birds; a flying object.

 Even though they fly above your head, they don't fly above your deeds!-Dominance!

The spiritual fouls of the air- Princes of Persia, sorcery/ witchcrafts, familiar spirits and all. These ones are not expected to act as they wish because you have dominance i.e you can give orders and control the air.
Jesus Christ showed us this again by ascending into heaven, Philip was caught away by he spirit of the Lord and was found in Azotus(Acts 8:26-40) and lastly Elijah had records of disapperances too (I kings 18:7-20).
Take charge of the fouls of the air in your life physically and spiritually, don't wait until they stop your prayers, act faster than Daniel, maximise your Angelic life dear.
c. Cattle and over all the earth- ' and over every creeping things that creepeth upon  the earth' i.e people/ animals with the body near the ground. Everything on earth He gave you dominion over. Dwarfs and Giants, I mean lesser and higher situations/ problems of life.
(II) The fullness
I will talk just briefly about this.
Fullness has to do with greatness in volume/completeness.

When the scriptures is talking about the fullness, its talking about the greatness of the volume of the earth or the things that completes the earth.
Genesis  1:29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
Using Genesis 1:29, i will be discussing and interpreting the fullness of the earth:
(a) Herb bearing seeds        (b) Tree yielding seeds.
I am going by these two alone because the others have been aforementioned. The major thing I want to bring out here is; the fullness of the earth is that fruitful and multiplying part of it, the part that replenishes it.
God is interested not only in your fruitfulness and multiplication but in everything around you.  
'The fullness of the earth not the fullness of the world'

God has given us only the fullness of the earth because the world is just an application of the earth and you do not belong to the world!
Remember; be ye not conformed to the world....
Everything on earth obeys you because they see God in you via His image and likeness.  
Therefore Dominion is not about your input but his output.

I challenge you today after this series of knowing yourself to make the move, take the lead and don't let life change you- instead Dominate! And that's my prayer for you this morning in Jesus name.
Finally, if you do not subject yourself to the creator you will be subjected to the created- If you are reading this and have not given your life to Jesus Christ, now is the time.
Ensure you use your God-given image and likeness to operate Dominion and do remember you are the created and not the creator, but the creator creates the created to recreate! Use your Dominion wisely!!
I Love you a bunch,
Oluwatobiloba Oshunbiyi.
Reading this alone and not sharing is not an act of Dominion.

THE 7 DISPENSATIONS IN THE BIBLE

Dispensationalism is a method of interpreting history that divides God’s work and purposes toward mankind into different periods of time. Usually, there are seven dispensations identified, although some theologians believe there are nine. Others count as few as three or as many as thirty-seven dispensations. 

In this article, we will limit ourselves to the seven basic dispensations found in scripture.

IS HEAVEN THE THRONE OF GOD?

Psalm 11:4: The Lord is in His holy temple; the LORD's throne IS IN Heaven; His eyes behold, His eyelids test the sons of men.

This verse separate the Lord's throne from Heaven but opens our eyes to an operation; a modus - operandi. The Lord's throne IS IN HEAVEN!

An Estate as a case study!
I do not live in an Estate; I currently dwell in the cave adullam as we speak but you'd hear a couple of person say "I live in Harmony Estate" as an example but this individual's house is literally "in" [inside] the Estate. For example; House #24, Harmony Estate...

It is on this basis I exclaimed "Heaven is not God's throne!" in the message THE MYSTERY CALLED MAN.

There is Heaven and God has a throne!
I stand today boldly that God has a literal throne, but He created Heaven someday and thus, the throne existed before Heaven.

After the creation of the Heaven and the Earth...
The Heavens by the activity of men causes the throne of God to be operate…

THE MYSTERY CALLED MAN

Psalm 8:4-6
[4]What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
[5]For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
[6]Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet

Everything in heaven and on Earth was created for man but man cannot make use of it until he knows WHAT HE IS.

Heaven was never created for God. Heaven and Earth were created for man... But it takes a man who knows WHAT he is to accurately represent God on earth, because, man is meant to extend the fullness of God in the earth for God and so, in reality, God needs men!

We came from God; not heaven and we are returning to God through heaven!
1 Timothy 3:16
[16]And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

The Lord Jesus did all …

SHOULD WOMEN COVER THEIR HAIRS IN CHURCH?

It is common practice for some women to cover their heads when they go to church. Others cover their heads when praying. Since 1 Corinthians 11:4-6 states that women should cover their heads when praying, several questions arise:
Did the apostle Paul refer to a cultural situation where women wore a head covering? Should women cover their hairs and if so, with what?                                                                  Was Paul addressing the situation of women praying or prophesying in the church or outside the church?1 Corinthians 11:4-5 states that all women should cover HEADS not HAIR when praying!

To understand this better, Download the Podcast:  Should Women Cover their Hairs in Church 
Meaning of the Words “Head” and “Uncovered”
1 Corinthians 11:4-6 appears to some to teach that women should wear a scarf or something else on their heads. However, the question is where?

Every man who has something on his head while praying or prophesying disgraces his head. But every woman…

THE REVIVAL AND THE MOVES OF GOD

Genesis 2:4-6
[4]These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,
[5]And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.
[6]But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

God had not caused it to rain upon the earth because there was no man. God is helpless without a man and will never be able to send down His rain(move) on earth without a man.

Thus, there are two elements that makes up the move of God:
1. A man
2. Territories

What is the Move of God?
The move of God is God moving men through roles in His agenda which births events called Revivals.
A revelation of Alignment!

Kingdom advancement is territorial and not just personal. The value system of the kingdom must translate from you and be reflected in your…
