Dominion = Fellowship with God

Dominion = Fellowship with God

Man was created by God to have intimate fellowship with his creator. If there is no fellowship between God, and man, then man is not complete. The results of man not having this relationship leaves a huge vacuum within man that can not be replaced with any thing other than God.

Man's relationship with God is found in the fact that the Lord God gave the first man Adam “AUTHORITY” over all the works of his hands in the form of “DOMINION”.

Gen 1:26 Then 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 birds of the heavens and over the livestock and OVER ALL THE EARTH and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth."

Heb 2:6 But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him?
Heb 2:7 Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst SET HIM OVER THE WORKS OF THY HANDS:

Adam's “authority” to rule on this earth over all the works of God's hands is based on Adam having the authority, and God providing the power to back up that authority. Authority is completely useless if there is no power to back it up. This required Man, and God to work together in a co labor ship role, or in other words to have fellowship with each other.

It is inherit in all men to have dominion, and to rule in this world. No wonder man is so bossy, and always wants things done his way. Man without God has lost the power that backs up his authority, so man has turned to other things to rule. Instead of using “faith” which comes from God that moves his hands on mans behalf, he uses “fear” which comes from the devil, (anything that is contrary to God's Word is of the devil) and it moves the hands of God's adversary the devil.

Jesus Christ is our perfect example of how a Father Son relationship works.

John 5:17 But Jesus answered them, MY FATHER WORKETH HITHERTO, AND I WORK. (KJV)

The Father Son relationship always work together to accomplish God's will on earth.

John 5:30 I CAN OF MINE OWN SELF DO NOTHING: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.

Jesus having authority from his Father to execute judgment would be useless without his Father providing the power to back up his authority. Jesus by himself could do nothing!!!

John 5:27 And HE HAS GIVEN HIM (Jesus) AUTHORITY TO EXECUTE JUDGMENT, because he is the Son of Man.

Notice: Jesus was given authority not because he was the Son of God, but the Son of man. God gave “man” authority over all the earth.

John 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but THE FATHER THAT DWELLETH IN ME, HE DOETH THE WORKS.

Jesus having “authority” given to him by his Father caused his Father to do the works through him. This would not be possible if there was no fellowship between Jesus, and his Father.

1Co 3:9 FOR WE ARE FELLOW WORKMEN (JOINT PROMOTERS, LABORERS TOGETHER) WITH AND FOR GOD; you are God's garden and vineyard and field under cultivation, [you are] God's building. [Isa. 61:3.] (AMP)

If I am a co worker with God, and I am, then I need to know what is my job is in this co labor fellowship arrangement. Jesus tells us what our job is, and that is “believing in the one the Father has sent” which is Jesus Christ (AKA the Word of God)!!! (John 6:27-29) If I do my part, God will do his part, because my “FAITH” can only “WORK” by “LOVE” (God is love) My “work” is to believe (have faith). God's “work” is perform my faith!!!!
[for me anyway] we are called by God to the fellowship of His Son Jesus Christ our Lord (1 Corinthians 1:9) for the very duty in the very next verse (v10) to speak the same things, and that there be no divisions among us; but that we be perfectly joined together in the same mind, and in the same judgment: which [for me anyway] describes exactly how the Church is supposed to be.
