INTRODUCTION

WILL.CITY

WELCOME TO

Our discussion this month on DOMINION seems to pre-suppose that for us to have dominion, there must be an exercise of the human will.

Ancient and contemporary history is filled with examples of how man has exercised dominion in every sphere of life – territorial, intellectual, physical etc.

  • Nebuchadnezzar - Supreme Emperor of the Babylonian Empire
  • Aristotle – Great Greek Philosopher & teacher of Alexander the Great.
  • Adolf Hitler – Nazi Commander of the Third Reich

INTRODUCTION

WILL.CITY

WELCOME TO

  • WILL, WILLS here and there, WILL, WILLS everywhere….

Therefore, it seems safe to assume that there is a strong co-relation between DOMINION and the WILL either in the physical or spiritual realm.

  • In Eden, the Trinitarian Will said – Let Us make man…- Genesis 1:26
  • In Heaven before his Fall, Lucifer declared the 5 “ I Will’s…” - Isaiah 14:13
  • At Babel, Man’s Will started the construction of the Tower. - Genesis 11:4
  • Yesterday, you said some I Wills…
  • Today, how have you exercised your Will?

WILL.CITY

WELCOME TO

  • WILL, WILLS here and there, WILL, WILLS everywhere….
  • "You are today what you decided to be yesterday".
  • We are each responsible for our own sin. It seems as though today, people are eager to place blame on everything and everybody else but themselves. PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY for our individual actions and rebellion against God seems to be a thing of the past in the minds of many today, even many religious people. It is the spirit of this age.
  • Sadly, people are quick blame the school system for the uncontrolled behavior of the children. They blame the government for the evils of our society. They blame the police for not doing enough to lower the crime rate. They blame the deteriorated conditions of the neighborhoods for the increased number of gangs and gang violence. Certainly these systems are not without their faults, however, the real cause for the evil condition in our world is quite simply sin. People have chosen to rebel against God and live a sinful life, rather than to obey God and live holy.

The way UP is down

To GET, you must give up

The way to LIVE, is to die

The more you give away, the more you get

He who must be the GREATEST, must be the least

The very unqualified, are the most qualified

Thinking it is as bad as doing it.

The JOHARI WINDOW

  • SELF

The Johari Window, named after the first names of its inventors, Joseph Luft and Harry Ingham in the 1950’s, is one of the most useful models identifying and describing human personality and the process of interaction.

The concept is built around four windows or the Johari House with four rooms.

Window/Room 1is the part of ourselves that we see and others see.

Window/Room 2is the aspects that others see but we are not aware of.

Window/Room 3is the most mysterious room in that the unconscious or subconscious part of us is seen by neither ourselves nor others.

Window/Room 4is our private space, which we know but keep from others.

CHAPTER THREE

MySELF&I

”Above all, keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life..”–Proverbs 4:23

Keep thy heart with all diligence,.... The mind from vanity, the understanding from error, the will from perverseness, the conscience clear of guilt, the affections from being inordinate and set on evil objects, the thoughts from being employed on bad subjects; and the whole from falling into the hands of the enemy, or being the possession of Satan: great diligence had need be used in keeping it, since it is naturally so deceitful and treacherous; a strict eye is to be kept upon it; all the avenues to it to be watched, that nothing hurtful enters, or evil comes out; it is to be kept by all manner of means that can be thought of, by prayer, hearing, reading, meditation; and, above all, by applying to Christ for his grace and Spirit to sanctify, preserve, and keep it. Or, "above all keeping, keep thine heart" (b); though other things are to be kept, and care taken of them, as kingdoms and cities, and towns and families, and treasures and riches; yet the heart above all:

for out of it are the issues of life; of natural life: it is the seat of it, from whence all actions of life are derived; it is, as philosophers say, the first that lives, and the last that dies; and it is the seat of spiritual life the principle of it is formed in it; from whence all spiritual and vital actions flow, and which lead unto and issue in eternal life: as is a man's heart, such is his state now, and will be hereafter; if the heart is quickened and sanctified by the grace of God, the man will live a life of faith and holiness here, and enjoy everlasting life hereafter: and if the heart is right, so will the actions of men be; they are regulated and denominated by it; they will then spring from right principles, and be directed to right ends, and performed with right views; great care therefore should be taken of the heart, since so much depends upon it, and it is so well known to God the searcher of it.

  • 19For the good that I would do, I do not; but the evil which I would not do, that I do. 20Now if I do that which I would not do, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 21I find then a law that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. 22For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man.
  • 23But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. 
  • 24O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

the lawful captive

CHAPTER FOUR

CLASH

OF

A

WILLS

  • 18For the wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness, 19because that which may be known of God is manifest in them, for God hath shown it unto them. 20For from the creation of the world the invisible things of Him are clearly seen, being understood through the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse. 21For when they knew God, they neither glorified Him as God, nor were thankful, but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man, and to birds and four-footed beasts and creeping things. 24Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies among themselves. 25They changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women changed the natural use into that which is against nature. 27And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another, men with men, working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense for their error which was meet. 28And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind to do those things which are not fitting, 29being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness, full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity. They are whisperers, 30backbiters, haters of God, spiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31without understanding, covenant-breakers, without natural affections, implacable, unmerciful.    
 32And knowing the judgment of God, that those who commit such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but have pleasure in those who do them.

LET THIS MIND BE IN YOU… - Phil 2: 5-11

5Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus, 6who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God, 7but made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men. 8And being found in the fashion of a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient unto death--even the death of the cross.9Therefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name, 10that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in Heaven and things on earth and things under the earth, 11and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.  

 JOHN 1:1-5

1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.    
 2The same was in the beginning with God.    
 3All things were made by Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made.    
 4In Him was life, and that life was the Light of men.    
 5And the Light shineth in darkness, and the darkness comprehended it not.
