God created the heavens and the earth.
God created man and woman in his own image.
God gave man and women dominion over all the earth.
Our first parents sinned by disobeying God and obeying the enemy, satan.
Our first parents gave the right of dominion to the enemy.
Our first parents died spiritually and through them we are all born with a carnal (natural or earthy) mind.
There is a kingdom of God and a kingdom of darkness.
The enemy is the god of this world and ruler of darkness.
God is the only creator and ruler of the heavens.
Jesus was born to destroy the works of the enemy and take back the dominion over the earth.
After Jesus was crucified, buried, and raised again to forgive and heal us as our substitute, he was given dominion of all heaven and earth.
Jesus first words in ministry were for us to repent because the kingdom of heaven was near.
We enter into the kingdom of heaven through the blood of Jesus and faith in his name.
Jesus heals us and makes us whole, including our spirit and body.
Jesus sends the Holy Spirit to transform us from the inside out and that's why we cry out, Abba Father.
We are born again through faith and the power of the Holy Spirit.
We are like children again in the kingdom of God.
We are commanded to renew our mind so that we can continue being transformed to think according to the kingdom of God and not according to the kingdom of darkness.
If you use the natural mind, you cannot understand the things of God.
As a new creature through the Spirit of God, we have a spiritual mind that can comprehend God's will.
We pray to God with our born again spirit so that we will have relationship with God and be more and more like him.
We oppose the kingdom of darkness by relying on the power of God through his Holy Spirit.
We are no longer carnal or natural, but we are spiritual and we are the light of the world.
