Taking it back to Eden...


Dominion...Peaceful…serene…beautiful…natural…luscious…ever-green…domesticated…satisfaction…pleasure...joy...laughter...carefree...sunshine...beauty...

They had DOMINION in Eden. They could pretty much do anything they wanted to do. They could command the day to favor their hobbies. They could command the light to shine their way. They could command the animals to go and come. They named all creatures, they controlled the earth. They controlled the universe. They had dominion. Not until sin got them. Sin captured them and dominion fell out of their hands. They became blinded to control. They became scared and cold. Their hearts were turned away from God and their eyes were open to evil.

Eden was a mystery and still is. In Eden, God gave us dominion. After Eden we lost dominion. But after Jesus, we’ve got dominion back. Let’s go back to the place called Eden. Jesus said, even greater things shall we do…” as He was ascending back to heaven. In other words, in that one sentence He gave dominion back to us. The power to put the devil in his place is ‘dominion.’ The power to command things to work according to God’s plan is ‘dominion.’ The power NOT to sin is ‘dominion.’ The power to discern good and evil is ‘dominion.’ The power to rule your life and not let any other human being control you is 'dominion.' Gaining dominion back has been made possible once again, but I guess many may not understand the concept. It is just like many concepts in physics that people do not bother to understand (for instance the concept of gravity). But you need to have one day of dominion to understand its beauty…

There have been some days in my life where I woke up in the morning and commanded my day to align itself to God’s word. “Lord, order my steps today for the steps of the righteous are ordered. Let my feet only go to where it’s supposed to go to.” At the end of the day, when I looked back in retrospect, I found out that there were many things I did that I felt I had no physical control over…it was as if my legs were directed by an invisible hand…only moving to places that will benefit me. That’s dominion.

***Let us take it back to Eden tonight.
Are you ready?***

Taking it back to Eden is the right path and many who are lost should follow it...I really loved the lines:

"Lord, order my steps today for the steps of the righteous are ordered. Let my feet only go to where it’s supposed to go to.”

Beautiful!!

Great stuff Jaycee! It got me reflecting. Adam and Eve "died" after they sinned ... but Jesus came that we might have life, and MORE abundantly (more than before). This means more dominion, more control, more exploits, more, more more ... We are made to multiply (not just by having children but in our business, in our lives, in our relationships, etc), be fruitful (in all areas of our lives), replenish the earth and have Dominion! Gen 1:28
God bless you Jaycee
