In all of my studies of what is written and to have said is from God, man has dominion over such things like the birds of the air, the beast of the field and even the crops. No where does it emphasize that man should have dominion over another human whether it be a man or a woman, without it being influenced and brought about by man himself! We are ALL made in the likeness and image of God. Yet from the beginning of time, with and without the written word, man in the LITERAL sense for centuries have caused many to remain spiritually asleep. From the enslaved of many nations to the gross mistreatment of woman even into this 21st century there appears to be a need in humanity to have dominion over another human being. I love the scripture that reminds us to wake up and to walk in the light. Knowing this truth for ourselves causes that same light to shine in and expose such darkness. For me to remain awakened I must allow the Christ within to shine through. I embrace that which I learned recently from Rev. Michael “what you think about you bring about”!!!!
(Ephesians 5:8-14)-“For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Therefore He says: “Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light.””
