4-What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
5-For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
6-Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:
God did not spare his time to think about any animal or angel but God thinks about man, He thinks about you. So, there is no other being that is a king on earth apart from man. The earth is waiting for you to take your place, you are the king of the earth. You are to take dominion in His name, you are His representative, and whatever you do or don’t do, will happen here on earth. If you do not take your place here, you will die as a liability. So, the name must work for you because you are created to be a king, not a slave.
5-They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.
6-I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
7-But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.
8-Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.
They will die like men because they refuse to take their place, because they lost their royalty mentality.
34-Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are god?.
Jesus is the head of the church, as you are the body of Christ, therefore if Jesus is a king, you are a king. There is no circumstance of life that is designed to bring you down, you are designed to overcome, to dominate the devil, to dominate any circumstances.
From the beginning, man is created to be a king, according to Genesis 2:15-19, the devil came and stole the royal position from man legally but unrighteously. God told man if you disobey me, you are going to die which means God said, I am the King of all kings, and you are also a king but if you go against my commandment, you will be disconnected from me.
14-But without thy mind would I do nothing; that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly.
God will do nothing without your consent because it will be against his word, you have to agree.
The devil did not have the power to tell them to eat the fruit directly, he didn’t have what it takes to force man, so he had to come through the back door by deceiving them. Devil is a falling angel, he doesn’t have power, he doesn’t have dominion over the earth, he is a spirit, but the dominion belongs to man. So, the devil deceived them, he twisted God’s word, and unfortunately man fell. He told them they will be like God, meanwhile, they were already god and there is none that can be what they were already. Genesis 3:1-9,14-19.
The authority was transferred from man to the devil legally through sin. Remember they were created with royal mentality, with royal position but when they sinned, they lost their royal mentality, their royal position as king and transferred it to the devil, they transferred their dominion to the devil legally but unrighteously. But glory be to Jesus Christ who paid the price through redemption in order for this to be reversed.
