We have dominion on the Earth! Given by God to mankind from the beginning (Genesis 1), our dominion is not to rule over other people; but instead, we are meant to have authority over every situation—physical, financial, emotional and spiritual. Most Christians do not boldly take their place in a position of dominion because it is little-preached or -studied. (See more about financial dominion HERE.)
