The Dominion Mandate
God called mankind to function in a role of Kingdom rule on the planet. (See Genesis 1:26-28.) Most people haven’t believed we could ever get back to that. However, we are moving back to that. We are able to step more fully into the stewarding role on the earth now—so much so that we are going to heal nations. We are going to transform nations. We are going to eliminate poverty in regions of the earth that respond to our message, for example. We aren’t going to rule by force. We are going to rule by the Spirit, which is going to change hearts, which will change minds. Then, Kingdom principles will be implemented, which will cause things to change in nations and regions of the earth.
“Then God said, ‘Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.’ God blessed them and said to them, ‘Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.’” (Genesis 1:26,28; NIV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Imagine what the cities of Chicago, Detroit, and Los Angeles could look like if Believers there would rise up and take dominion over the spiritual forces holding them in darkness.
- What would your own city look like?
- What would your state look like?
- What would it take for this nation to be transformed? We need Spirit-filled Believers, harvest, discipleship, intercessors, and godly governing leaders. Call them forth and determine to be one of them.
A prayer you can pray:
Lord, teach me to be a Kingdom-transformer. As I think about the huge challenges that some of our nation’s largest cities face, show me how it is possible in You to effect change there. Show me how we take dominion over systemic poverty, violence, corruption, etc. Link me with like-minded Believers in my city or state or even across the nation, so that we can see Your Kingdom come here. I declare that the Word will not return void from Your lips, Father. Kingdom of God, come in my realm of authority! Amen.
Kingdom-advancers will implement the answers to our nation’s societal issues!
