Dominion Power

God made man in his own image and let us have dominion power over the fish of the sea,over the fowl of the air, over the cattle,over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.” We can see that God created human beings and immediately gave them complete “dominion” or “rule” over all the rest of creation.

The word “power” in the New Testament could mean at least a couple of different things.

Romans 13

“Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God”

Nevertheless, God made man and placed him with dominion power over and above the rest of creation. The authority that man has over these things comes from God. Just as God has given the father authority over the wife and children.

“There is no dominion power but of God. It is merely a conflict between this form of self-will and that; between a despotism that exists and a despotism that is struggling to exist.

If the powers are ordained by God it must accomplish good and pleasure of God. God made man and as Christians we have to learn that  we are bound to give up our-self with all power and all our might to be a living sacrifice to Him who redeemed us to do His will with all our soul and strength.

We conclude that when God’s Laws when violated ; we have an obligation to obey them for at least in that specific instance.
