DOMINATE AND TAKE CHARGE ;
(The Lord Jesus Wants To Reign Through His Righteous Ones) ;
TO THE BIBLE Romans 5:17 ;
“For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.”
There was something about Sam; he had always been this quiet, unassuming young guy at the back of the classroom. He was shy around his classmates and he got bullied most of the time, because of his timid demeanor. Soon, after he resumed school, Sam got born again at a fellowship meeting on campus, and there was this sudden rush of boldness from his spirit; he knew there was a change! He was different and it showed in his kingly stance and walk, and he even began to sit in front of the class!
Revelation 5:10 says Christ has made us “…kings and priests to our God, and we shall reign on the earth.” Then interestingly, in 1 Corinthians 15:25, we read that “…He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet.” Jesus isn’t physically present in the earth today, yet He’s reigning through those who “receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness.” The only way He reigns is when we reign through righteousness. The understanding of the doctrine of righteousness makes us masters in life. It gives you the sense of dominion, such that nothing moves you; you’re in charge, and in control of circumstances. You make things happen!
Righteousness is God’s nature, and that nature was imparted to you when you were born again. Therefore, exercise dominion. Live as the king that you are. Don’t talk as though you’re of this world. Speak with authority, for all of nature is under a sovereign decree to hear and respond to you. Refuse to beg, for kings don’t beg. You don’t even have to beg God for anything or to do anything for you; pray in accordance with His Word and make decrees in the Name of Jesus. Dominate your environment and take charge of the circumstances of your life. Boldly affirm prosperity, divine health, and progress for you and your loved ones, and you’d see them come to pass.
The Righteous Are Bold as a Lion
The wicked flee when no one pursues,
But the righteous are bold as a lion.
But the saints of the Most High shall receive the kingdom, and possess the kingdom forever, even forever and ever.’
Seventh Trumpet: The Kingdom Proclaimed
15 Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The [a]kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!”
Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ and shall reign with Him a thousand years.
Glory to God in the highest, I’ve received grace to reign and rule in life as a king. Therefore, I exercise dominion over circumstances. I manifest the glory of God and I declare prosperity, health, progress, glory, divine favors, and peace for me and my loved ones. The Word of God prevails and produces results in me today and always, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
