Dominion Over Satan And Sin

Dominion Over Satan And Sin

Romans_6-14: For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

Declare it Boldly: I Have Dominion Over Satan And Sin.

And they that are Christ’s have crucified
the flesh with the affections and lusts
(Galatians 5:24).

There’re Christians who are enslaved by
certain habits, which they keep praying to
God to help them overcome. Unfortunately,
for most of them, the more they pray, the more they
find themselves controlled and dominated by those
habits. This has left them confused, and thinking their
situation is beyond remedy. Some have even
backslidden, because they thought they couldn’t be

But in studying the Scriptures, we find that it
says in Romans 6:14, “For Sin shall not have dominion
over you….” Our opening verse is also unequivocal:
“…they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the
affections and lusts” ; meaning that if you’re in Christ,
you can’t be bound by any habit. So, what then is the
problem of those who seem to be in bondage to certain
habits? It’s simply their lack of knowledge.

God never asked us to fight the flesh or struggle
with sin and habits; we’ve crucified the flesh; we’ve
overcome the world; we have dominion over Satan
and sin. So, when some Christians or even preachers
counsel others to “crucify the flesh,” it’s a contradiction.
It’s fruitless to try to be who you already are or
get what you already have. If God says you’ve crucified
the flesh, then that’s it! Your role is to respond and say,
“I don’t get, and can never be, dominated by sin or the
flesh, because I am Christ’s. Therefore, I’ve crucified the
flesh with its affections and lusts.”

Galatians 5:25 says, “If we live in the Spirit, let
us also walk in the Spirit.” Since we were born into the
spirit and we live in the spirit, we’re to walk in the spirit.
So, simply, if you’ve not been walking in the spirit, start
walking in the spirit; that is, in the light of God’s Word.
Declare, “From this day, my flesh won’t control me; my
mind won’t dictate to me; I refuse to be sense-ruled, for
the Word of God has become my compass, and I live
the Word.”

Galatians 5:16 says, “This I say then, Walk in the
Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.” How
do you walk in the Spirit? It’s by walking in the light of
God’s Word. It’s by walking in the truth in Christ; in the
light of your righteousness and glory in Him. Hallelujah!

Sin has no dominion over me. I live in the spirit,
having crucified the flesh with its affections and lusts.
I’ve overcome the world; I’m superior to Satan; I’m
washed, sanctified, and justified, in the Name of the
Lord Jesus! Hallelujah!
