Mark 16:16 – 20 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, but he that believeth not shall be damned.17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven and sat on the right hand of God.20 And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.
Dominion is about knowing who you are in Christ. It is important to have Dominion and to walk in it. You are redeemed to walk in the dominion provided by Jesus Christ on the cross of cavalry by having faith in Him and His finished works. V17. Surrendering your totality to Jesus makes you superior to the devil and makes you the light of the world for the devil has been defeated by Jesus Christ. Mathew 5v14 says ‘Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill can it be hidden’.
Therefore, the potential to dominate and rule over every challenge standing as a stumbling block on your ways has been given to you for greater is He that is in you than that which is in the world. Each time the devil is roaring, you are not to panic but to confront him with the word of God. This word of God is sharper than any two-edged sword. Hebrews 4v12.
