The specific revelation for today is Kingdom Dominion-Driven Principle.
The Kingdom Dominion-Driven Principle is the taking charge of your life choices through the Kingly rule of God in your heart and life.  The Kingdom empowers you to dominate your life on earth. The Kingdom Dominion-Driven Principle is God coming down to you to transform you, impact, influence, and change the world.  When the Kingdom becomes your priority, its effect becomes your reality!

  • Matthew 16:24-26, MSG –Then Jesus went to work on his disciples. “Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You’re not in the driver’s seat; I am. Don’t run from suffering; embrace it. Follow me and I’ll show you how. Self-help is no help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, my way, to finding yourself, your true self. What kind of deal is it to get everything you want but lose yourself? What could you ever trade your soul for?
