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 creepeth upon the earth.
What does it mean to have dominion?

Dominion means having authority and rule over a thing, principle or a geographical arena. Dominion means being fully in charge and capable of determining what happen or does not happen.
To fully understand dominion it might be helpful to explain its opposite which is “Subjugation”. Subjugation is being under rule without the capacity to determine what you do, want, or even think. Subjugation; as is seen with the children of Israel may even mean being incapable of dreaming big dreams or even serving your own God.
Subjugation is terrible. When a man is subjugated the rewards of his work is reaped by another man. This basically means that he cannot even determine the course of his own life or future. The worst part of subjugation is that a man cannot actually free himself.
Imagine that Modecai, who was a slave in Babylon did the king Ahasuerus a great favour, he exposed a plot by three men who sought to kill the king. When it was time to give reward, Haman, the arch enemy of Modecai and his people (Israel) was the one who was promoted as Prime Minister making him second only to the king. In spite of this, Modecai could not protest; why?- because slaves have no rights whatsoever. This is how bad subjugation can be.

For everyone reading this who are under the despotic reign of Lucifer; may the Almighty God give you freedom today in Jesus name.
The devil is a bad devil. When he wins a man he captures his life, ambition, health, destiny, family, academics, and even future; just about everything. He leaves him no room to even attempt an escape.
But, our God is a good God. He continually shows mankind his own salvation (Ps 91:16). One of the best promise he made to us in all of his holy book is the promise of all-round dominion
What should we have dominion over?

Paul speaking to the Roman church in Rom 6: 13-14 says “Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin; but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. 14 For sin shall not have dominion over you; for ye are not under the law, but under grace.”
The devil subjugates men to do sinful things even against their own very wish. People get into drugs and then cannot get out because they are hooked. People get into lesbianism and alcoholism and find it hard to quit. Sin is compelling them to its ways each day. People lie willfully to the point where they have no honour. But the promise of God is this “Sin shall no longer reign in your mortal bodies”

11 But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also give life to {quicken} your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you.
This is the final verdict over sickness. The Spirit of Jesus gives life that renews our mortal bodies. I pray for anyone reading this bulletin right now who has been struggling with any long-term sickness or the other, the word of God is saying to you today “But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for {of} our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed.” Sickness in your body, blood stream and marrows are cursed in Jesus name. Begining from today, the grip of sickness over your life is broken eternally.

Jesus was in the inner cabin in a ship one day and the storm was heavy. The apostles were really afraid. He slept on unbothered and the apostles asked him “Do you not care at all that we perish in this storm?” And really Jesus did not care about the storm because he was certain of his ability to call the storm to a halt. “He who calleth forth the things that be not as though they were” (Rom 4:17).
Several times; our Father in the Lord; Pastor E.A. Adeboye has make use of the power of God to stop the rain and clear the skies. You too can. You are not helpless when nature works against the purpose of God in your life. You can speak your expectations to life.
Dear Reader, let me challenge you as we round off our 12th Anniversary and carry on in faith on this mountain of prayer and fasting. By all means, ensure like Hannah that you do not return without a proof. These 50days fasting and prayers will be the weapon for making champions. Ensure by all means that you are one. You shall come back from this Shiloh with a Samuel. You shall return with dominion in Jesus name.

Happy new month.
