VERB OUR AUTHORITY capt howdy.png

God gave His Dominion

(authority, rulership, and control) 

of the Earth over to Adam and Eve. 

(See verses for specifics) in  Genesis 1:26-29.

Unfortunately, Satan currently rules this planet.  He got his rulership from man (through murder, deceit and lies) starting with Adam, Eve, and then the rest of human kind. (See 'SATAN, WHO HE IS' ).

We are still superior to Satan because we have our Authority given to us at the time of Adam and Eve and all throughout the Bible.  In addition, now we have, through Jesus, the Holy Spirit, which helps our human spirit. (See 'HUMAN SPIRIT' and 'HOLY SPIRIT').

Genesis 1:26-29; 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.”

27 So God created mankind in his own image,
   in the image of God he created them;
   male and female he created them.

28 God blessed them and said to them,

“Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”

29 Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. 30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.



Matthew 10:8; Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.

Mark 16:17-18; And these signs will accompany those who believe. In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”

God limited His sovereignty. (authority, rulership, and control) When He gave the rulership of Earth to Adam, Eve, and mankind. 

Also in the Bible it says in many place what we need to do with that sovereignty.  For example, it says in Matthew 10:8 to "heal the sick" and "drive out demons". 


In Mark 16:17-18; Jesus specifically says:

  1. "they will drive out demons;

  2. speak in new tongues;

  3. they will pick up snakes with their hands;

  4. and when they drink deadlky poison it will not hurt them; 

  5. they will place their hands on sick people and they will get well."

God gave this part of His Sovereignty to mankind.  It is us who need to use it. 



James 1:17;  Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.


Titus 1:2; in the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time

1 Samuel 15:29; He who is the Glory of Israel does not lie or change His mind; for He is not a human being, that He should change His mind.”

Psalms 89:34; “I will not violate My covenant, nor will I alter the utterance of My lips."

Hebrews 6:17; Because God wanted to make the unchanging nature of his purpose very clear to the heirs of what was promised, he confirmed it with an oath.

When we hear the Word of God, which He took the time and trouble to reveal to us through the Bible, we can trust it because His word is His covenant (formal, solemn, binding agreement). All of it.  


He does not change or alter His mind because that would be a lie, and the Bible tells us that God does not lie. (See Bible verses).


God doesn’t change or lie.   He never has and never will change or lie.  Every promise he makes, He’s bound to.  If God doesn’t keep His promises, that makes Him a liar. 


God has bound Himself, and he has revealed those bounds to us through His Word in His Book, the Bible.  We are the heirs (We inherit His promises just like any heir of fortunes), and His promises are sacred and unchangeable.


We can know with certainty what God's Will is, and we do not have to wish, and hope, and pray, and never know what God is going to do. 

God's nature is unchanging.  It has to be, because He is supporting this universe.  He cannot change; otherwise, not only everything we see, but we ourselves would be in a state of unpredictable change.

God does not lie or change His mind.  That means everything He says is perpetual and everlasting.



Joshua 21:45; Not one of all the Lord’s good promises to Israel failed; every one was fulfilled.

1 Kings 8:56; Praise be to the Lord, who has given rest to his people Israel just as he promised. Not one word has failed of all the good promises he gave through his servant Moses.

Romans 1:2; the gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures ,

God has never failed!  Not even one word! 


Do we realize how fantastic that is.  There is not one human except Jesus who has kept all of their promises.

His Word. in addition to other things, is proved true through His prophesies which told us what was going to happen hundreds of years earlier than the event.  (See 'HOW DO YOU PROVE THE BIBLE IS TRUE').



1 John 5:14-15; This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His Will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have what we asked of Him.

That's a lot of confidence; "He hears us" and "if we ask anything according to His Will", "that we will have what we asked of Him".

This is His Word, which means it is His Covenant as it is stated in Psalms 89:34 (above).

If we ask anything according to His Will that's talking about if we ask anything according to His word.


When you pray the word of God you have prayed the Will of God and you can know beyond any shadow of a doubt that you have received it.


The scripture says when you pray, believe that you received it and you shall have it.  It didn't say you might have it, it says "it will be yours".


But is dependent upon you believing that you received in the scripture said when you pray you can't believe that it's yours when you see it but when you pray you got to believe that you received it Because God will  not override your determination and intentions.  If you do not believe it, then how can He, through His Holy Spirit which He has given to you, grant it to you.?
