They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course. I have said, Ye are gods, and all of you are children of the most High' (Psalm 82:5).
This scripture captures the original essence and intent of God for man: to rule and dominate his world. From the day God created man He spoke out his intent for man's dominion in Genesis 1:26, "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth". This was the original mandate given to man, to live like gods on the earth.
David put that in perspective for us in Psalms 115:16, "The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord's: but the earth hath he given to the children of men". The dominion mandate as captured by this scripture entails that we have a 'godly' role to play on the earth and godly in this context implies dominating our world! Hence in the opening passage, we read at the beginning of this article we are told that whenever we see the world out of course it is because believers are not in tune with their godly nature and roles! David said until you understand your true nature you will die like men without value! This will not be our experience in Jesus name. Amen
However, the reason why many are not exercising and releasing that godly nature is that they have not experienced the word! Experience with the word is what releases our godly nature!
Jesus made this clear in the book of John, "Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken;"(John 10:34-35). Jesus confirmed here that the scripture in Psalm 85 was no joke; ye are gods and experiencing the word is the key to releasing that godly nature!
The reason why they were called 'gods' is that they have experienced God through his word!
The entrance of the word led to the emergence of gods!
