Genesis chapter one verse 26-28.
King James version.

26 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.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

Revelation chapter 5 verse 9-10

9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
King James version.

Ecclesiastes chapter 8 verse 4

4 Where the word of a king is, there is power: and who may say unto him, What doest thou?
King James version

From the above Bible passages, we learn that God made us (man) in His own image and likeness, so that we can behave and live like Him.
Man was given dominion at creation but, he lost it and was fully restored by through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Dominion is our right as Believers. God gave us the earth to rule over. We are all kings and Priests in Christ. We rule under the Kingship of our Lord Jesus Christ because He is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords (refer to 1st Timothy chapter 6 verse 15 and Revelation chapter 19 verse 16.)

We as children of God and co-heirs with Christ are to reign on earth.

Sort:  

We as children of God and co-heirs with Christ are to reign on earth.

We are children of the most high God, created to dominate the earth.
We should not speak rashly because our words have power and come to pass.
Thank you for your contribution.
