Seven Places Jesus Shed His Blood - 5
Jesus' Pierced Feet Won Back Dominion Over The Places We Walk
The fifth place where Jesus shed His blood was where they drove the spikes through His feet, nailing Him to the cross. The blood shed from His feet also redeemed us from our loss of dominion and authority.
Ephesians 6:10 - "Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might."
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 the spiritual dominion and authority given to him in Genesis 1:26, 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 over Satan's earthly kingdom. 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 neighborhhod. 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 you set your foot will be yours (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?
I arise and walk in dominion power, and lay ahold of the promises of God.
God is calling for me to arise and take a strong stand against the works of darkness. I am to take the land. (Jude 1-4)
I have a burning desire to disciple others into a higher knowledge of Christ (Matthew 29:19)
Truly I am full of power by the Spirt of the Lord! (Micah 3:8)
As a believer I enter into and possess a dimension of the Kingdom that has never been displayed on the earth.
