Updated: Oct 1, 2020


Dominion is power or use of power, sovereignty over something, stewardship, supremacy.



God has dominion:

Daniel 4:3

How great [are] his signs! and how mighty [are] his wonders! his kingdom [is] an everlasting kingdom, and his dominion [is] from generation to generation.

Psalm 145:13

Thy kingdom [is] an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion [endureth] throughout all generations.

Romans 6:9

Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.

Ephesians 1:21

Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

Jude 1:25

To the only wise God our Savior, [be] glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever. Amen..


God has given you dominion.

Every one of us is called to have influence/ domination/ authority/supremacy.

Psalm 8:6

Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all [things] under his feet:

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 creepeth upon the earth.

Gen 1:28

And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

You are the only creation that God gave dominion: He allowed the creatures to be fruitful and reproduce but for you he allowed these and commanded you to subdue and dominate.

Many of us have things having dominion over us.

Psalm 19:13

Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous [sins]; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.

Psalm 119:133

Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.

This why God dealt with sin once and for all: Hebrews 10:10

And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. So, we are restored to the place of full control.

a) God has made you have dominion over all the works of his hands.

b) You were never meant to have dominion over other men.

c) Together you and other men would have dominion.

d) You have dominion over work or what can be worked.

Authority: Authority is the power to enforce rules and orders.

Mathew 28:18

And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.

John 5:27

and He gave Him authority to execute judgment, because He is the Son of Man.

Luke 10:19

I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.

e) Your goal in any area and any door the lord opens is to be fruitful, to multiply, to fill it up and to conquer it.

f) You were never meant to work anything just so that you eat of it. That’s why God took care of that in Genesis 1:29.

g) You were meant to work to influence and dominate. Work satisfaction.

Habakkuk 2:14

For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord     as the waters cover the sea.
