Exercising Dominion

Exercising Dominion

If you are feeling lost in a sea of complicated problems, downcast, rejected, defeated, and at odds with the world, consider that you may have been neglecting to accept the beautiful gifts that Yahweh has given to you. Maybe you have been unaware of these gifts, or maybe you have not believed they were yours, no matter; I will instruct you if you will take a few moments to read about your human potential.

Peace is a free gift to all of Yahweh’s creation, yet few accept it.

You were not born to become a reject—a failure. You were subjected to this wonderful world of opportunity in hope—in Yahweh’s hope (Rom. 8:20). Isn’t it awesome! the Creator of the universe hoped in you? If this is true, and it is, you must be very special, you must have a glorious potential toward greatness in him. Let us take a moment and look at your individuality and consider what an awesome creature you are and then examine the meticulous effort Yahweh exerted to equip you with what you need in order to excel.

At this time you may not esteem yourself to be unique because you do not recognize what a magnificence creature you are. You see your reflection in the mirror, but you cannot see your reality. You are a gift to the world, a diamond in the rough. You have the potential to excel; you are the answer to your own complications. The Bible says we eat from our own garden, and again, we reap what we have sown. This all boils down to what we call cultivating our own frame of mind. We act and react to the people and conditions around us out of the conditioning and programming of our own minds; the (sometimes) sad part is that every action commands a reaction.

Recently I came across two great truths that have truly fed my spirit. I have learned that I possess one of the greatest inventions in the whole universe—one that scientist cannot duplicate. I have the franchise on my own mind; no one else can use it. But no one needs to—each of us have our own fantastic brain. I also learned that I could use my mind to create. I have learned there is no condemnation for doing that. I use it all the time to create, whether I am aware of my actions or not. If I am awake, I am creating with my mind.

People are so strange. Many scientist reject the Savior, yet they are now teaching as a newly discovered theory, the message the Savior taught almost two thousand years ago, that is, that we are busy creating our environment throughout our lifetime either by our subconscious base desires, which are usually ill directed, or through a conscious and constructive effort.

I am at awe that the wise men of modern times are scientifically confirming the Bible based law of sowing and reaping; it is now established as an undeniable fact. Isn’t it wonderful that this principle can now be recognized as the sovereign authority, and that it confirms the first recorded statement ever made concerning the destiny of man? “And Yahweh said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion…,” Genesis 1:26. This is why I say it is so great that they have finally discovered the law of sowing and reaping, “Be not deceived; Yahweh is not mocked: for whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap.…” And again, “Yasha said unto him, If you can believe, all things are possible to him that believeth,” Mark 9:23. Also, remember the scripture in Matthew 17:20: “And Yasha said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If you have faith as a grain of mustard seed (that’s not much), you shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.”
Another scripture in Matthew 21:21-22, Yasha reaffirms our power, saying, “If you have faith, and doubt not, you shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if you shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. And all things, whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive.”

I suppose the reason this concept is so difficult to work with, is most folks are unaware of their thought-pattern, that is, they allow their thoughts to wonder uncontrolled. This is why Peter advised us to gird up the lions of our minds in First Peter 1:13: “Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation (revealing) of Yasha Christ.”

Your problem will be intensified by demonic spirits and powers, but the other and most frustrating problem about this reality is that we are in a world full of creators, and too many of them are the “up-an-at’em” species that like to take charge. The trouble is, they will rule for us if we will allow them to take dominion over our space. Many of them will put up a strong warfare to take or keep control of your space. This means you must exercise your birthright and steadfastly protect your space.

Love for a spouse does not override your necessity to keep your God-given right to rule over your own destiny, by choosing seeds and cultivating your own garden. If we lovingly surrender our space to an aggressive mate, we will soon discover our prison bars are intact and our cell door is firmly locked.

It is never right to invade another’s space. We can sufficiently direct and guide our children without an invasion of their space when we study the Bible rules and follow them closely. Parents that take their child’s space will eventually destroy the child or find themselves locked out of their life completely.

As I look about me, I see so many modern parents that allow their children the freedom to do anything and everything, except to develop their coping and life management skills, and then they are shocked when they are faced with adult children that are void of these necessities.

The secret to successfully rule your space and supporting others in their efforts is found in the Bible. If you desire a solution, study the Scripture to find your formula and open your mind to give heed to its instructions. But do not lose sight of the fact that if you hope to be successful in your endeavor, you must go through the channel of prayer. Always use prayer; it is the clue to successful living. “And all things, whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive,” Matthew 21:22.

Another vital step in your warfare is to have your uniform and armor intact and your weapons handy as they are described in Ephesians 6:10-13: “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armor of Yahweh, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of Yahweh, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”

One word of caution—if you find that your problem is that you have allowed someone to take over your space, do not retaliate in the flesh by trying to take over theirs. Be satisfied with securing your own space and be supportive of others. We all need all the encouragement and support we can get. You cannot recapture your lost space by flesh-effort without creating strife and contention. You must recapture it, but do it by prayer in faith. The Lord will answer the prayer of faith. This may take some time, depending on how quickly you seize the opportunities to gently move in and take possession. The enemy will do everything he can to give you a guilt trip. But do not feel guilty, your space is yours to possess and you alone bear the responsibility of it. Take dominion.
