What was redeemed: our dominion and authority. And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, having wiped out the requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. Colossians 2:13,14
Jesus was nailed to a tree and bled from His feet to cleanse us from our trespasses. Trespass defined In a moral sense, to transgress voluntarily any divine law or command; to violate any known rule of duty . He also gave us dominion over all the powers of darkness to tread upon them with our feet. We have been given authority to defeat the enemy and to carry the glorious gospel of salvation to a lost world
Dominion was returned! Genesis 1:26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all[a] the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 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
Dominion…what is that? Biblical dominion, is ruling, authority and stewardship Disobedience (in Adam) led to our loss of dominion, but the shed blood of Jesus bought it back for us. Dominion is in the place of our feet. That is where we stomp every power that rises against us. God says “Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you…” (Joshua 1:3). Now we can go and take back our cities, towns, families, destinies, because Jesus has restored us to the place of power over the enemy, He has returned dominion. Luke 10:19 says “Behold, I give to you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the authority of the enemy. And nothing shall by any means hurt you.” This is dominion.
The LORD God said to the serpent, "Because you have done this, Cursed are you more than all cattle, And more than every beast of the field; On your belly you will go, And dust you will eat All the days of your life; And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise you on the head, And you shall bruise him on the heel.
Through the blood Jesus shed when they nailed His feet on the cross, our feet have also been cleansed from all manner of defilement and we now able to stand before the enemy, to resist him, and to demand that he gives back what is ours. Hallelujah!
