A note from the author
As I continue to watch the events across the world unfold, I have been reminded of a declaration we have made repeatedly, that God is ‘re-aligning nations’, and that as the United Kingdom, we would be positioned for His blessing not only for ourselves, but that we might be a blessing to other nations. We must continue to pray for the Ukraine/ Russia crisis, but today – I want to look at something that is I believe, very much in the heart of God for this time.
This blog is a word I released last year, as you read it and use the prayers at the end, please do so for yourself, your community, your church and the nation.

The Issue of Dominion – A Reset for Restoration. March 2021
In December 2020, God spoke to me about an ancient key He was releasing – as I have prayed and waited on God, I believe this is to do with the re-setting of what has been a corrupted version of the ‘dominion’ mandate back to the Biblical gift which it was intended to be. This is not about Dominionism, or domination of one upon the other, but the release of a gift which stewards out of God’s heart, for the well-being of those concerned.
Some of what is written below will not be new to many, but I have included it with what I believe is fresh revelation, so that when we come to make the declaration at the end – there is a corporate understanding.

Dominion – Introduction
This is a new era, the sound resounding over this era, is the sound of the era of the Kingdom, prophesied in Daniel 4:3 – ‘How great are His signs, and how mighty His wonders! His Kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and His dominion is from generation to generation’ and again in Daniel 7:14 ‘then to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which will not pass away’.
The focus of the Holy Spirit is increasingly upon this Kingdom that not only will a great Revival be released, but also a restoration of the truths of His word, and the righteousness, justice, and peace of this Kingdom of God – on earth as it is in Heaven.
Dominion – a Kingdom Mandate
Dominion was the mandate which shaped the mindsets of the West for generations, (Tom Holland) and lay behind so much of the Christendom expansion from the 16th century onwards; yet it did much damage, not only affecting the lives of millions of individuals but also of nations.
Where did it begin?
In Genesis 1:28 we have a familiar scripture – ‘then God blessed them, and God said to them, ‘be fruitful and multiply, fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth’
The Kingdom of God and His dominion are inseparable, some even refer to the Kingdom as the ‘King’s domain.’ They are different ways of saying the same thing.
In our time, because this Kingdom is beginning to advance, the Spirit of God is freshly highlighting the mandate to take Dominion, given originally to Adam and Eve, and then released to the church by Jesus with His call ‘to go into all the world and make disciples…’ We stand on the edge of a new movement of and through God’s people to ‘take territory’ again, whether literally physical areas where darkness rules, or aspects of the spheres of influence that so affect our societies, bringing Revival and releasing the love, justice, righteousness and mercy of the King to our world.
