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 creeps upon the earth.
when you read your Bible. But what might you find if you did investigate\
For me, when I don’tunderstand something, then it’s a good time to investigate words and choose the meanings that make sense to me.
The word ‘dominion,’ what does it really mean. If I have dominion, I need to understand what it is I have. Don’t I?
And because there are many meanings for a single word, I need to know them so I can decide which makes sense to me …so I can have my dominion.
Here are some meanings. Dominion means, ‘ area of control, rule, authority, realm, and domain.’ So how do those meanings have anything to do with my dominion? Well lets look at each word closely and see. To have my dominion, I need to know where the ‘area of control,‘ is. If ‘control’ means a place, ‘to eliminate of prevent the spreading of’ something, where is that place I am able to ‘eliminate or prevent’ things ? It must be my mind. My mind because that is where I do have full ‘control’ to ‘eliminate‘ any thought I want….to keep it from spreading.
Rule is, ‘able to control,’ If dominion means we are ‘able to control,’ what is it that we are able to ‘control? The one thing we are able to ‘control’… if we choose, is our own thinking.
Next meaning for the word, is ‘authority.’ We find it means, ‘ability to control.’ It means ‘able to direct thoughts.’ So, not only are we ’able to control’ our thoughts, we are also have the ’ability, to control and direct’ …our thoughts. So because we have ‘dominion,’ we do have the ability to control and direct our own thoughts anyway we want. Why don’t we?
The word ‘ability’ is, ‘mentally able.’ Mentally able. I guess that means that our dominion is ours because we are ‘mentally able to control and direct’ our own thoughts. And if we are ‘mentally able to control and direct’ our thoughts to ONLY good, happy, healthful, happy, peaceful, loving, abundant thoughts, our lives would be spent in Heaven. Heaven because that is were only good goes on. Isn’t it?
And last, but not least, the word, ‘sphere.’ Sphere means a ‘realm’ and a realm is a ‘kingdom.’ A kingdom is an ‘area of mental
Is God’s Kingdom of Heaven,where we have our dominion? Is Gods Kingdom, the ‘area of mental activity? Within us? Is the Kingdom of God…..Consciousness? Jesus told us the Kingdom of Heaven was within us. Well, isn’t Consciousness within us? Isn’t that where we do have dominion. Isn’t it in our own mind, that we alone have the ‘ability to direct and control what’s to be thought, then experienced?
What other place is it, that we have complete control, complete ‘dominion?
What do you think the ‘dominion’ God gave you…is? And why are you not using it?
