#4279 – Rule Over

Good morning people who were called to walk in kingdom authority

Genesis 1:26 NIV Then God said, Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

God’s original intention was for people to rule over what He had created, in the same way that He rules in heaven.

The “so that” is important, both in the beginning with God, and also now with us.

“So that” speaks to original intention, motivation and ability.

We were made in God’s image “so that” we may rule over; this is why we are made in His image and likeness, and this is how we can rule over!

“Rule over” is all about authority, and authority is the essence of kingdom. Kingdom authority is delegated authority from the King Himself. He has authority and we have been given authority in Christ.

God rules over = we rule over.

God has never authored something that He did not empower. He has authored us into a new resurrection life and He has empowered us!
