The lordship of Jesus Christ

May the peace and grace from our Lord Jesus Christ be multiplied unto you in abundance this day!Today I would like to start on the topic of the lordship of Jesus Christ. The phrase „Jesus is Lord!” is quite often used by the children of God. But being the children of God, we cannot treat this concept in a superficial or religious manner. The lordship of Jesus has a deep spiritual meaning. We should not casually proclaim or declare His lordship without the correct understanding of what it really implies. God wants us today to discover for ourselves what the true essence of the lordship of Jesus is and to act accordingly.I pray that the Lord would open our understanding and give us a revelation of how important this subject is.When we say that Jesus is Lord, – it means that His rule, power, authority and government embraces everyone and everything, including the enemy of the humanity – Satan. Satan hates everything that is the will of God; he loves what God hates and he hates what God loves.But regardless of Satan’s aggression and hostility, God has given us a command to demonstrate His lordship in the name of Jesus Christ in all the areas of our life. This is the calling or the assignment that God has given to humans. When we realize the importance of the lordship of Jesus Christ, we will be able to exercise this calling which God has given to us as His children. God desires His children to rule and reign on this earth.It says in Genesis (1:28) that God gave the man an assignment:
«Then God blessed them, and God said to them, „Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth”».
We see here that God blessed the man and gave him some work to do in this life. First, God told the man to be fruitful, which means to create according to his likeness people like himself – the ones that know God and reflect His image and character.Then God told him to multiply. It means that the number of people on this earth had to grow and spread the fruit of righteousness and purity that God had placed in the people He had created.Then God told the man to fill the earth, to fill it to its fullness.And God did not stop there. He also told the first people to subdue the earth. To subdue the earth means to destroy every hindrance, every power that rose against the will of God in this earth.Besides that, God told the man to have dominion ”over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth”. Dominion implies ruling over the things you have been placed over. God wants us to rule and have dominion in all the areas of our life.God knows that there are powers that rise against His goals and intentions for the earth, because God has blessed the mankind and has delegated to the people authority to rule and govern in His name.But in order to do it effectively, we need to arm ourselves with the revelation of the lordship of Jesus. Nothing can stop the man who has the revelation of the lordship of Jesus and lives according to it!Remember today that JESUS IS LORD over all of your circumstances!Tomorrow we will continue on this topic.Pastor Rufus Ajiboye
