When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:
Glory: expressed image of who God is. (Hebrews 1:3) Its a manifestation of Himself.
The ultimate plan that God has for every person is to bring God glory. He wants to reveal Himself to the world. You may be the only Bible some people will ever read. God wants to use you.
Honor is the delegation of authority
Authority is the right to command and be obeyed.
So honor is the delegation of the right to command and be obeyed.
Dominion: a domain or territory in which you exercise authority
God made man to have dominion.
When we walk under an authority that has not been delegated by God, that is oppression.
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
We are to be image bearers of the image of God.
God delegates dominion to man to bring Himself glory. He wants to reveal Himself.
Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son
1 Thessalonians 2:12
That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory.
Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me;
Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?
You were created to be a dominion-heir
All thy works shall praise thee, O Lord ; and thy saints shall bless thee. They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power; To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of his kingdom. Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations.
I thought it good to shew the signs and wonders that the high God hath wrought toward me. How great are his signs! and how mighty are his wonders! his kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and his dominion is from generation to generation.
And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
