Dominion Theology is a term describing a common Christian teaching. It is a term used to describe the concept first mentioned in Genesis 1:28, where God grants humanity "dominion" over the Earth.
And God blessed the first coupled God said unto THEM, "Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have DOMINION over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth."
Dominion Theology looks at this passage (and many others) as describing how the original intention of God (when He first created humans) was to give them the responsibility and stewardship over the earth. This concept also brings with it a mandate for Christians to take dominion over the devil and to actively supervise in government, social, civic, and civil affairs.
Dominion Theology usually includes the "restoration" of apostles and prophets to lead in this endeavor in preparation for the ultimate return of Jesus.

THIRD DAY – Kingdom Dominion -
Two thousand years ago the birth of Jesus literally divided history in half. Now, the world measures time from His birth (B.C.) and after His death (A.D.). The life of Jesus was THE GREAT TURNING POINT – the tipping point – the FULLNESS of time, and the great divide of time.
Kingdom theology, Kingdom NOW.
Two thousand years ago the birth of Jesus literally divided history in half. Now, the world measures time from before His birth (B.C.) and after His death (A.D.). The life of Jesus was THE GREAT TURNING POINT – the tipping point – the FULLNESS of time, and the great divide of time.
For centuries, the church has been a stranger to apprehending the fullness of its inheritance. We’ve assumed that the promises as well as Paradise are for after we die and for later on in heaven. After all, Paradise is where we’ll sit on clouds with harps and sing eternally – isn’t it? We’re much like Martha to whom Jesus said, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?” (Jn. 11:25-26)
Looking more closely, we discover the greatest holocaust imaginable in our midst -- the massive loss of redemptive truth. The ever widening influence of the spirit of this age intersects our good intentions and positions itself at cross-purposes with our well intended plans, robbing and perverting our faith.
Jesus died to RESTORE this EDENIC condition: Redemption is what took Christianity out of the realms of religion and philosophy and made it a living reality. Redemption means "to restore" or to "buy back" or to put back the way it was before. We need the character strength and resolve to access what is our inheritance We must not ignore the total work of the cross which ultimately brings us back to the privilege of Eden (which means God's delight). Redemption enables humankind (the new creation) to return to this spiritual IMAGE and intent of God. These are not just words and thoughts, this is a way of life!
