WHEN I initially came across the biblical verse in which Jehovah God says I have blessed the man with dominion, this scriptural revelation took long to manifest.
But now that I have matured in the things of the Almighty Jehovah God, I fully understand what the dominion the Creator of heaven and earth was referring to.
No demons, evil spirits or the Devil will ever take advantage of my family and I simply because we are fully equipped with dominion, which is knowledge.
Genesis 1:28 of the English Standard Version states that God blessed human beings.
In the same verse Jehovah God says: "Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have DOMINION over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth."
In other words, dominion here means authority, superiority, supremacy, ascendancy, dominance, hegemony, control, command, power, rule or sway.
It simply refers to all human beings, regardless of tribe, race, colour, creed or geographical location. The bottom line is that we are conquerors, victors, winners, champions or heroes of planet earth.
In plain language, those that exercise their dominion shall always become conquerors, rulers of kingdoms, empires, land owners or have the ability to possess anything their hearts so desire.
The challenge or dilemma only comes when the same people created by Jehovah God completely lack wisdom.
Jehovah God in the book of Hosea 4:6 of the Berean Study Bible, states "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge."
Job 36:12 of the English Standard Version supports this True Gospel. It reads, "But if they do not listen, they perish by the sword and die without knowledge."
The underlining fact here is KNOWLEDGE! Indeed, little knowledge is very dangerous.
If the brain is limited or none functional, the body of the person without knowledge suffers the most.
The flesh ultimately pays the price for the person whose brains are not being wisely or correctly utilised.
Imagine prostitutes! They claim they are sleeping with hordes of men because they cannot get money in proper ways, really?.
Have you ever thought of thieves, robbers, burglars, muggers, swindlers or cyber criminals, who insinuate they commit such crimes because they cannot find other means of survival?
This is utter rubbish!
All the sufferings we encounter today is because of improper use of wisdom.
Others get jobs, a scarcity these days, but during work hours they chase their own businesses instead of doing the things they have been employed to.
Suppose they get fired from work... ..will such persons ever have the temerity to go back to church to request their leaders to pray for them again so that they get another job?
Only fools would return to persecute Jehovah God to grant them employment for what they would deliberately have abused.
Most of the challenges we are facing today are not because Jehovah God has abandoned us. They are self inflicted.
Many problems we face today are a result of stupidity.
Wrong priorities at the wrong time ultimately lead to disaster.
Whether it is marriage, work or business, applying wrong decisions coupled with greedy lead to termination of relationships.
Are you going to blame Jehovah God for losing your job yet you are the one inviting expulsion?
When you lack the little money as a result of losing the job that was initially giving you source of living, would you blame Jehovah God for being not on your side?
If you truly have proper introspection, you would agree with me that you are your own enemy by doing your own things at employer's expense.
According to 2 Timothy 3:2-4 of the New International Version says: "People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God."
Here you clearly see that all the challenges people face today is as a result of wrong decision motivated by greedy.
Many workers find themselves out of employment as a result of undermining authorities.
Obedient and submissive always go far because of the power Jehovah God gave to uplift who whatsoever follows His word.
Shortcuts never work in life. The results seem instant but the double dealing will always come back to haunt you.
Usually, double dealing are gossipy.
Imagine what would have happened if Elisha was disobedient and impatient with prophet Elijah? He would not have been a great prophet documented in the bible today.
If Joshua was disobedient to prophet Moses, he would not have successfully led the people of Israel to the promised land - Canaan.
Stop whatever dirty tricks you are playing behind scenes and be honest, reliable, dependable, loyal and have integrity.
Always make use of your brain wisely, with respect instead of doing things that you would regret.
Jehovah God is not the one who is causing your suffering or poverty today.
I strongly believe each human being is created in the image of Jehovah God and as such, everyone should be treated with dignity and respect but once we choose the wrong path, it always ends horribly.
The fact that God sees us as having the righteousness of Christ (2 Corinthians 5:21) upon repentance and faith, shows that God loved us enough to die for us (John 3:16) and saved us, despite our ungodliness (Rom 5:6).
Since Jesus died for us while still His enemy (Rom 5:10), we should never think of harming ourselves in any way because it is not good to mar the image of God in us.
Those who believe in this True Gospel say amen!
