'They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course. I have said, Ye are gods, and all of you are children of the most High' (Psalm 82:5).
This scripture captures the original essence and intent of God for man: to rule and dominate his world. From the day God created man He spoke out his intent for man's dominion in Genesis 1:26, "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". This was the original mandate given to man, to live like gods on the earth.
David put that in perspective for us in Psalms 115:16, "The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord's: but the earth hath he given to the children of men". The dominion mandate as captured by this scripture entails that we have a 'godly' role to play on the earth and godly in this context implies dominating our world! Hence in the opening passage, we read at the beginning of this article we are told that whenever we see the world out of course it is because believers are not in tune with their godly nature and roles! David said until you understand your true nature you will die like men without value! This will not be our experience in Jesus name. Amen
However, the reason why many are not exercising and releasing that godly nature is that they have not experienced the word! Experience with the word is what releases our godly nature!
Jesus made this clear in the book of John, "Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken;"(John 10:34-35). Jesus confirmed here that the scripture in Psalm 85 was no joke; ye are gods and experiencing the word is the key to releasing that godly nature!
The reason why they were called 'gods' is that they have experienced God through his word!
The entrance of the word led to the emergence of gods!
Two scriptures are instructive here. Psalm 119:130 David said, "The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple". The entrance of God's word gives light. We also understand this through the scripture in John 1:1-5, where we are told that 'in him(the word) was life and the life was the light of men'. In the word we receive light! And then in 1 John 1:5, "This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all". Here we are told that God is light! This, therefore, mean that each time we experience the word we experience God himself because God is light and this light shineth in darkness and the darkness comprehends it's not!
Finding the word, therefore, is the key to becoming like God, and becoming like God is the key to ruling our world. Once we find the word our world will be on course!
Our dominion of the world awaits our understanding of the word, this is why David prayed and said, "give me understanding and I shall live". The words of God in our hearts will release us as gods on the earth, for through the power of the word humanity is elevated to the status of divinity. And when believers operate on this spiritual wavelength the foundation of the world is set aright for divine agenda.
