Rhapsody Of Realities 25 March 2021 By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome (Christ Embassy) – Dominate Your World
TOPIC: Dominate Your World (Rhapsody of Realities 25 March 2021)
SCRIPTURE: Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances (Colossians 2:20).
Our opening verse lets us know that we’re not subject to the principles of this world. Jesus dominated this world; He lived above the decadence of the world, the corruption and failure of His society. He lived far above, and beyond the government and systems of the day when He walked the earth. That’s the life He’s given us: one that’s not subject to, but lords over, the rudiments of this world.
He’s made us self-sufficient, to function above and beyond the systems of this world. He said you’re in the world, but not of the world. That means you’re to dominate the systems and corrupting influences in today’s world. Many around you may be influenced, and provoked to compromise as a result of the deceit, corruption and wickedness in today’s world, but not you. You hail from God’s Kingdom, and your life is built on, and regulated by, His truth only.
Keep learning God’s Word. It’ll make you think and talk like Jesus. In John 16:33, He said, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” Have the same consciousness, because He overcame the world for you. Although He lived in a world plagued by gross darkness, deceit, economic hardships, sickness, oppression, deaths, disasters, etc., He had a victor’s mindset; the kind He expects you to function with.
When you face challenges, persecutions, distressing situations, turbulent times, trials, and temptations, be unruffled; because in Christ, you have overcome the world (1 John 4:4). Let this consciousness reflect even in your prayer-language. It makes no difference the challenges you face; when you pray, declare that in the Name of Jesus, you’ve overcome the world and its systems; its hatred, deceit, poverty, corruption, depression, falsehood and antichrist spirit. Hallelujah!
I live and function above and beyond the systems of this world; I’m independent of the hardships, corruption, evil and deceit in the world because I live in Christ, in His Word, and in the dominion of the Spirit, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
1 John 5:4-5; For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.(5) Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
Psalm 8:4-6; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?(5) For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.(6) Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:
