Purpose of Dominion
15 Ye are blessed of the Lord which made heaven and earth.
16 The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.
The Purpose for Giving man Dominion, is to establish God’s Kingdom on earth.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
To establish God’s Kingdom or His will on earth, He needs a representative called man, through whom He would do this.
Why did Jesus come to earth?
- To restore the broken relationship between God and man through his sacrifice (John 1:12) and thereby restore man back to his position of authority (Eph 2:5,6) which he lost from disobedience. That position of sovereignty is called dominion.
- To teach man the right way of living as Kingdom citizens in order to exercise dominion on earth.
Having dominion is different from exercising dominion
Four principal keys to exercising domion is indicated in Genesis 1:28:
And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
All these 4 keys are deficient in African Gospel Music.
Dominion through Productivity
How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil;
Job 1:10b –
Thou hast blessed the work of His hands, and his susbtance is increased in the land.
- Without working, there is nothing for God to bless. So my question is, what are you doing at Glow Music? and How are you doing it?
- Without productivity as a minister you cannot claim anything on earth; you cannot influence anyone. You must be able to run productions… do something; work
- Prayer: God grant me the grace to be productive. Whatever i touch and wherever I work, let me be productive with lasting results.
Dominion through Restoration
And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.
- God let me be a fixer in this ministry and everywhere I go, not a destroyer or demolisher
Dominion through Authority
1 Samuel 13:13
And Samuel said to Saul, Thou hast done foolishly: thou hast not kept the commandment of the Lord thy God, which he commanded thee: for now would the Lord have established thy kingdom upon Israel for ever.
- Without a source, a hierachy, or a set Authority, there will be no flow (no gradient) no anointing, no order
- Without order there will be no growth; no progress, no beauty, no longevity, no peace, no still waters
- Where order breaks down, everything breaks down.
- God give me the grace to be content, obedient and orderly and to obey even when it is difficult
Dominion through Multiplication
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
- Why preach? so that others would believe and become part of the Kingdom
- Why preach? to multiply or increase in number
- Without multiplying, the kingdom Kingdom cannot spread over the earth
- Without multiplying, Glow music cannot impact the whole earth with the message of God through music.
- How do you multiply? 1. by telling others about the vision so that they can join 2. by helping those in to stand firm through sharing and care instead of fighting
- Pray for Glow Music
