In our last bible study, on the 21st of February, we had revelational insight into Isa.1:19 “If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land”. We saw that it is the will of God to make us enjoy the good of any land we are located.


The conditions are; willingness(submission) and obedience. We discovered that obedience and submission are two different things. Obedience is an action and submission is an attitude. Obedience can be outward but willingness is of the heart and God can see whether we are willingly obedient to Him.


It takes humility to submit to God’s authority in our life and to do what He says so that we can enjoy the good of the land. For obedience to accomplish its purpose, it must be complete. Partial obedience is disobedience before God.


To be willing and obedient implies keeping your motives pure. If a person's motive is not right, he needs to repent and make the necessary adjustments; because God is not going to bless someone whose motives are impure. To eat the good of the land, we must therefore be both willing and obedient. Kenneth Hagin’s story on his encounter with God based on Ias.1:19 is a classic.


This week, we are considering the area of authority given to man to exercise on earth to get his needs met.


1. God’s original Mandate: Gen.1:26-28

“Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”


When the Lord created Adam, Adam was in one sense the god of this world because God created the world and the fullness thereof and turned it over to him. Adam committed treason against God and handed over his authority to Satan.  Now Adam didn't have a moral right to disobey God and sell out to Satan, but he had a legal right to do it.


“Then the devil, taking Him up on a high mountain, showed Him[d] all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. 6 And the devil said to Him, “All this authority I will give You, and their glory; for this has been delivered to me, and I give it to whomever I wish. 7 Therefore, if You will worship before me, all will be Yours.” Luk.4:5-7


Satan became the god of this world in place of Adam according to 2 Cor.4:4. His assignment is to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10). He stole the dominion mandate from Adam when he fell from grace to grass(Rom.3:23).


Satan showed Jesus all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time and said to Him, "All this authority will I give Thee and the glory of it, for it is delivered unto me." Who delivered it to him? Adam did!


Satan was using this mandate to control the world system and economy. The world and it fulness was created for Adam and not for Satan to control. Ps.50:10-12, Hag.2:8 “The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,’ says the Lord of hosts.”

God created the silver and the gold and they were created for His children to enjoy.


2. Jesus Recovered Our Dominion Mandate: Col.2:11-15


“In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ, 12 buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead. 13 And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, 14 having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. 15 Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.”


After paying the full price for our salvation on the cross by His passion (crucifixion and death on the cross). Then He proceeded and disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.

Jesus made a show of principalities and powers openly. That is, He made a show of them before three worlds—Heaven, earth, and hell—triumphing over these powers through the Cross (Col. 2:15).


He boldly declared when He rose from the dead in Matt.28:18 “And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.”


3. Jesus restored our Authority to govern the earth; Col.1:12-14


“Giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. 13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, 14 in whom we have redemption through His blood, [c] the forgiveness of sins.”


We were restored to higher position from were Adam fell. We must use our God-given authority to enforce Satan's defeat and enjoy the blessings of God that we have in Christ, including financial prosperity.


Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet [or able] TO BE PARTAKERS OF THE INHERITANCE OF THE SAINTS IN LIGHT. Colossians 1:12


Here is the inheritance of the saints in light that the Father gives because of Jesus' defeating Satan.



Jesus is not going to deliver us; He already has delivered us. The rest of that verse says, "...from the POWER of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son." Notice that word "power” which means authority. In other words, God hath delivered us from the authority or dominion of darkness. Well, what's the authority or dominion of darkness? That's Satan's kingdom.


We're in the world, all right. But we're not of the world (John 15:19). The whole world is in darkness, but God hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the Kingdom of His dear Son (Col. 1:13)! That's our inheritance.  Darkness represent poverty, sickness oppression and every evil in Satan’s domain. We are no longer in his domain. We are already translated into the kingdom of God and have authority over the kingdom of darkness according to Luke.10:19 “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”



We can use this authority and claim everything Satan stole from us and get our financial needs met. But we must learn to think and speak in line with what the Word says. We can have what the Word says we can have, and we are who the Word says we are. We are born of God!

Jesus never lacks anything because He always exercise authority to get His needs met while He was physically on earth. We are presently His representatives on earth, and must operate with the same authority He gave us.

“YE ARE OF GOD, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” —1 John 4:4.
