Every human has God-given powers of personhood that no one has the right to trample.
More and more, people you don’t know are trying to assert control over your life. When individuals try to lord over your free will, they rebel against God and operate in witchcraft.
God created humans to bear a similitude to Himself. He made us spirit, soul, and body. And He endowed us with moral, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual attributes and powers. These God-given powers distinguish us from and make us superior to the animal kingdom.
Among other things, God gave humans:
Humans have the power to reason, comprehend, and to understand.
We have the power to communicate. No matter the language, we can usually figure out how to express ourselves to one another.
Compassion is feeling and expressing the love and sure mercies of God. Someone said, “Sympathy sees and says ‘I’m sorry.’ Compassion sees and says ‘I will help.’”
God has placed inner sensing, perception, or knowingness inside our inner man. Call it intuition, the sixth sense, or a “gut feeling.” We all have it. It is a gift from God meant to protect us.
God has placed an inward longing inside every person to commune with and worship Him.
Simultaneously, evil forces and demonically inspired people are always trying to get you to commune with, bow down to and worship them.
God created every person with free will. In God’s eyes, every person is a free moral agent. God gave each of us the power to choose who or to what we submit.
God spoke: “Let us make human beings in our image, make them reflecting our nature So they can be responsible for the fish in the sea, the birds in the air, the cattle, And, yes, Earth itself, and every animal that moves on the face of Earth.” God created human beings; he created them godlike, Reflecting God’s nature. He created them male and female. God blessed them: “Prosper! Reproduce! Fill Earth! Take charge! Be responsible for fish in the sea and birds in the air, for every living thing that moves on the face of Earth.” ~ Gen 1:26-28, MSG
God has given each of us the power to rule our own lives and be caretakers for others’ well-being and the planet. Perverted dominion results when people try to control other human beings who are all made in the image of God (see Jas 3:9). All have tremendous God-given rights of personhood.
