THE COMMAND OF DOMINION
Deuteronomy 28:13 says, “And the Lord shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the Lord thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them.”
Is this being fulfilled? O, yes it is! I am not the tail. I don’t want to be the tail. The promise of the Father is that I will be the head, so no person on earth should want to own me. If you desire to use me or to own me, you are in big trouble because there is only one who can own me, only one who can use me, and that is the Father Almighty.
If any man desires my praise, he is in big trouble and I might be in trouble as well because there is only one command about whom I should praise – only the Lord Almighty God in Heaven, our Lord Jesus Christ – He is the only one worthy of the praises of the Son and of the sons and daughters of the Father Almighty.
“…and thou shalt be above only…”
Above only. It is not like the wheel of fortune of man where sometimes you are up, sometimes you are down, and sometimes you are in the West, sometimes you are in the East. No! The promise is I WILL BE ON TOP ONLY all the days of my life. I shall be above only. So if any man wants me to be beneath him, he is, again, in trouble.
Do not strive to put me beneath you because you will be in trouble with the Father. His promise to me is, “My Son, you will be above only.”
“…and thou shalt not be beneath…”
Can you imagine those promises? And yet there are those who do not know who I am who want to put me under their feet? They want me to be their ‘tig’, their ‘boy’. That is fine with me if that was promised to me, and if the Father told me, “My Son, you will always be beneath.” That is very much okay with me, but He said, “Thou shalt be above only, thou shalt not be beneath.” Do not try to change that or you will be in trouble.
But even in the Kingdom Nation, there are people who are over ambitious. They think that they know more than I do and so they want to get ahead of me. I told them, “Do not go ahead, you’ll be in trouble.” Still, they want to go ahead.
So I told them, You want to be the leader? Okay, go ahead and be the leader. But be warned that you should be able to do what I have done. If you cannot do what I have done, then get out! Do not strive for or covet that which was not given to you. Step aside because it is not for you. What has been given to you is all that you should strive for.
As for me, I will follow what has been given to me and nothing else will do. And it so happens that all of these blessings were given unto the Appointed Son.
Verse 13 continues: “…if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the Lord thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them…”
v-14 “And thou shalt not go aside from any of the words which I command thee this day, to the right hand, or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.”
