Dominion and the Bible

THE CULMINATING WORK of God in preparing the earth for habitation was the creation of man in his own image. Verse twenty-six of the first chapter of Genesis uses the word ‘likeness’ as well as ‘image’ in describing man’s similarity to his Creator. We read, ‘God said, Let us make man … after our likeness: and let them have dominion.’ This would seem to imply that man’s likeness to God included the fact that he was given a dominion. God is the Supreme Ruler of all his great universe, and on earth he delegated authority to man, whom he had created in his image. No such grant was given to any of the lower animals, nor would they be capable of exercising dominion. Man’s authority was limited. He was not given dominion over the weather, or seasons, or tides, but only over the lower orders of sentient creatures—the fish of the sea, the fowl of the air, the cattle, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.


God commanded the lower orders of the animal creation to multiply and fill the earth—the same command was given to man. “God blessed them and said to them, ‘Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.’” (Gen. 1:28, New International Version) Thus the animal kingdom, with man as king, was to be extended to encompass the whole earth.


The Bible reveals that the earth was designed to be man’s home, and that man in his original perfection was in every way suited to the earth. God did not give the slightest intimation to Adam that after he ruled successfully for a while over the lower animals, he would be transferred to another home, and exalted to a higher dominion. Nor does the record indicate that if Adam failed on earth, he would be removed from the scene of his failure to enjoy eternity in heaven—or anywhere else!

We know that tragedy temporarily disturbed the smooth working of man’s dominion. Man lost his dominion, and with it his life. But God’s design was not changed by man’s failure. Throughout the Scriptures the fact continues to be emphasized that it is still God’s plan for man to live on the earth, the home which was originally prepared for him. We read, “Thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited.”Isa. 45:18

In Psalm 78:69 we are told that the Lord has established the earth forever. Psalm 115:16 declares, “The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.”

In a promise assuring us of the ultimate triumph of righteousness and of the righteous, the Prophet Isaiah wrote, “He [the Lord] will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it.” (Isa. 25:8) When the Creator’s design concerning man shall have been fully accomplished, man’s eternal home will be on the earth.


Man’s dominion will then be restored to him. This fact is attested by Jesus, who prophetically speaks to those who will prove worthy of everlasting life, saying, “Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.” (Matt. 25:34)

The Apostle Paul also confirms the fact that man was created to live on the earth, and nowhere else. Speaking to the Athenians from Mars Hill, he said, “God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation.” (Acts 17:24-26) This is a strong statement, emphasizing as it does that man was created to live on the earth, and that the ‘bounds’ of his habitation, his dwelling place, or home, had been established.2
