The fifth place where Jesus shed His blood was where they drove the spikes through His feet, nailing Him to the cross. The bloodshed from His feet also redeemed us from our loss of dominion and authority.
The Greek word "Kratos," relates to God's manifested dominion and therefore our outer strength. Kratos speaks of dominion, power, and strength.
Acts 19:20 - "So the word of the Lord was growing mightily and prevailing."
The scripture tells us that in the days of the early church, "the word of the Lord grew mightily (Kratos) and prevailed."
When Adam disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden, he lost spiritual dominion and authority, and at that moment, satan became the god of this world. But through Jesus' shed blood, we don't have to be trampled by satan. God said to Joshua "every place on which the sole of your foot treads, I have given it to you.," (Joshua 1:3)
There is something about taking ground in the spirit--there is something about taking land.
HOW DO WE PROPHESY OVER OTHERS?
We speak the Blood of Jesus over their lives.
We speak health over their lives.
We speak destiny over their lives.
We have been commanded to "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation." (Mark 16:15)
Wherever we go, we're to tell people "The kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the good news!" (Mark 1:15). This would be impossible unless we had the AUTHORITY to take DOMINION of satan's earthly kingdom. Spiritual DOMINION over this earth is ours again because of the shed blood of Jesus Christ, and wherever we are, the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
As believers, we have the authority to walk around our neighborhood and say, "I bind the devil in my neighborhood. I bind the drug addicts and the dope dealers." We can walk through schools and say, "I bind violence, I bind perversion, and I bind New Age teaching," Because every place where we set our foot will be ours. (Deuteronomy 11:24)
When we bind the devil, our next step is to loose the peace of Jesus in our streets--loose the righteousness of Jesus in our cities.
Matthew 18:18 -- "Truly I say to you, whatever you shall bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven: and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven."
QUESTIONS TO ASK MYSELF:
How am I creating an opportunity for God to act through my faith?
What incredible acts of faith am I capable of?
