“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.  And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat” [Genesis 1:28-29]

After God made man in His own image and after His own likeness, God blessed man as we see in our opening verse. The blessing of: Be Fruitful [Productive or conducive to producing in abundance], Multiply [Combine or increase several or many times], Replenish [Fill something that had previously been emptied] the earth, Subdue [To put down by force or authority] the earth, and Dominion [Dominance or power through legal authority] over God’s creation is what God blessed man with. This is remarkable that God, after creating man, blessed him with such a magnitude of blessing.
Looking further into Genesis 2:19, it says; “And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof” God saw that it is not good for man to be alone, so He created these to see which one will be suitable for man, but here again, this is remarkable: The Lord brought all He formed unto Adam to see what Adam would call them. God did not name these animals, He brought them unto Adam to be named. God did not object what Adam called each animal, as it is written: ‘…and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof”
The following portion brings us closer to what I’m getting to, after that, God caused a deep sleep to come over Adam, to take a rib and form him a wife. Let’s see Genesis 2:22-23 which shows the likeness God has fashioned man with: “And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.  And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.” Not only did God make man, but also gave man an intelectual consciousness. It is by these names Adam has named everything that God had brought unto him that these things are subjected after.
This kind of blessing God had blessed Adam with, and this is the same kind of blessing God has blessed the New Man in Christ with; to… ‘be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion…’ After that, man has sinned, and they have lost their authority over these blessings to the deceiver, satan; but through Jesus Christ’ triumphal descendance into hydes, arising with absolute victory, the Lord has brought us back and restored these blessings unto us [Eph.1:3] – Hallelujah! No wonder you see signs and wonders follow those who are conscious of these things; but not only does signs and wonders follow them, they kinging in life. Whatever they do is fruitful, they increase in life, they fill all the emptiness around them, they have authority over life circumstances and evil, and they exercise dominion in life. Hear this today; ‘God has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places’ [Eph.1:3]. He didn’t bless some, but all of us; neither did He bless in measure, but in fullness He has bless everyone equally. The difference is, some of us are more conscious than others about the magnitude of these blessings. We all have been given by the same measure, but not all of us has received [claimed] it by the same measure. Simply put; if God has blessed us with all spiritual blessings, then whatsoever we ask of God, we ask in ignorance of the Word. God has said these things so that we might boldly say [Hebrews 13:5-6]; we are to make faith declarations consistent with the Word of God.
How is these blessing given unto us? Looking at Colossians 1:27, it reveals the secret: “To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory” and Colossians 2:9; “For in him [Christ] dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.” Jesus is alive today in us through the Holy Spirit; and as Jesus holds the victory in His hand, so to, that same victory is in us. No wonder Paul said: ‘We are more than conquerors’ [Rom.8:37]. Adam had a birthright given in the blessings we see in our opening verse; and although he lost that to satan, Jesus, not only sacrificed Himself in our place, but also restored the fullness of the blessings God had bestowed on man from the beginning.
Understand who God made you to be; understand that God is for you. Who can be against you if God is for you; walk in this consciousness. Elijah said, they that are with me are more than they that are with them [2 Kings 6:16], a whole army came for him, but he did not fear them. When God moves, He moves in the Holy Spirit, Who is the fullness of the God-head. You can’t even begin to phantom the greatness of God. Ezekiel saw a vision of a chariot coming on clouds of fire. See how he describe what he saw in Ezekiel 1:4-28. John saw in a vision Jesus returning with the host of Heaven [Rev.1:7]. David and many others had the revelation of the fullness of God, no wonder they wrote such powerful testimonies inspired by the Spirit. Joshua and the nation of Israel stood with the Commander of Heaven’s Armies [the Holy Spirit]; and they watched the fortified walls and city of Jericho crumble by their praises to a Mighty God [Josh.6]. When God moves, everything in creation bows before Him; the winds makes way before Him, the clouds carry Him, the thunder ecoe His voice, the whole of Heaven’s host apluse Him. What a mighty God we serve, Wonderful and all Powerful. His Spirit goes before Him, beside Him, above Him, below Him, follows behind Him; and He fills the entire earth with His foot. The earth itself is the footstool of God [Isa.66:1]. Even the stars praise His wonderful name [Psa.148:3]; for by the breath of God were they made [Psa.33:6]. Let’s no miss this; looking again at; in several portions of scripture, it states ‘Heaven’s Armies’ – God does not have an army, He has armies! These armies are mobilized for you and me, as we have seen 2 Kings 6:16 saying, they that are with me are more than they that are with them [please read this chapter in Kings for better understanding].
Israel was considered strong and feared by many nations; but in the desert at the foot of Mt.Sinia, they fell down terrified by just hearing the voice of God, yet they didn’t see him. Thousands feared by millions were silenced by the utterance of the voice of God; Praise God!
Your dominion is set by God’s blessings which He has already bestowed upon us; all you need to do is be conscious thereof. Look at king Balak of Moab, who employed Balaam to curse the nation of Israel. Although he was employed to do the wrong thing, the anointing of God came upon him, and all he could do is speak blessings [Josh.24:9]. Glory be to God! Psalm 23:5 says; ‘God will set a table in the presence of your enemies.’ David said, ‘Even I walk through the valley of the shadows of death, I will fear no evil’; and furthermore said [Psa.23:4]; ‘Even a thousand shall come by my side, and ten thousand by my right hand, I will fear no evil’ [Psa.91:7]. I can boldly say; I am humbled by many, but I’m intimidated by none; I dominate my world, it is time that you start dominating yours; for who can be against us if God is for us [Rom.8:31]; for in all these things, we are more than conquerors [Rom.8:37].
Looking one last time at the word dominate: means ‘to have dominance or the power to defeat over’ [WordWeb Dictionary].
“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well” [Psa.139:14]. Understand who God made you to be; and what He has freely given unto you – It’s your time to dominate your world! You have been given power through legal authority – Hallelujah!
