RCCG Sunday School Teens Teacher’s Manual 11 August 2019 – Everlasting Dominion
TOPIC: Everlasting Dominion
Bible Text: Daniel 4:34-35 (KJV)
34 And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation:
35 And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou?
Memory verse: “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” – Jeremiah 29:11
LESSON AIM: To let the Teens know that everything they have is given to them by God and they must honour God with it.
CENTRAL TRUTH: Everlasting Dominion is in God.
INTRODUCTION: There was a certain rich man who looked at Christians with scorn and arrogance. He usually told them. “This your God is not a good one, I’m practically richer than all of you.” He later struggled with chronic depression that no psychologist could heal. God being the all mighty saved Him from the clutches of the Devil, now he is sold out for Christ. God is the only one who grants true and everlasting dominion.
What Is Everlasting Dominion
1. Eternal life. John 3:15-16; Jude 21
2. God, the one true and the only living God.
3. Ruler over human kingdoms. Dan. 4:54.
4. Sovereign Control.
5. No beginning and no end. Psalm 10:16.
6. Since God is eternal so is His love. 1 Kings 10:9.
Why Does God have Everlasting Dominion
1 Gen. 1; He is the creator of the universe
2 Gen 1:26; He is the creator of human kind
3 We are accountable to Him.
4 God is the beginning and the end
5 He ordains the end.
Rewards of God’s Everlasting Dominion
1. It brings you overflowing blessings. Prov. 3:10.
2. It brings you to remembrance in the hall of fame of God’s kingdom. Mark 14:9.
3. It brings acceptance from God. Mark 14:9.
LIFE APPLICATION: God cares about and desires that we have dominion on all sides. His word has come, He’ll watch His Word to bring it to pass.
CONCLUSION: You are too precious. The result of true faith is a changed life!
