Expect a reversal as you speak My Word;
You’re taking dominion, and “things” will have heard.
Say unto this “mountain,” and it shall be removed–
I’ve given mankind dominion and, by you, that can be proved.
Be it health or finances or a personal concern,
It’s saying what I’ve said that will cause things to turn.
My Word bears repeating, and the angels take heed–
And they assist, because of it, in working upon your need.
But allow time to develop–and for change to work in your heart,
Through My incorruptible seed alone–let stones and thorns depart.
Yes, tend to that seed in your heart as required
To cause mature growth and the harvest desired.
“Talk is cheap,” is sometimes said,
But talking My Word is rich instead.
You will meet with resistance–but you must “hold fast.”
With My Word in your heart, the trouble can’t last.
Call the things that are not as though they were so–
Say it how I see it, and your faith will grow.
Gradual signs of reversal, or in a more rapid way–
Sowing My Word bountifully will bring your harvest day!
P. A. Oltrogge
“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 foul of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.’ So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, ‘Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.'” Genesis 1:26-28 (KJV)
“And He was saying, ‘The kingdom of God is like a man who casts seed upon the soil; and goes to bed at night and gets up by day, and the seed sprouts up and grows–how, he himself does not know. The soil produces crops by itself; first the blade, then the head, then the mature grain in the head. But when the crop permits, he immediately puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come.'” Mark 4:26-29

“And Jesus answered saying to them, ‘Have faith in God. Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it shall be granted him. Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they shall be granted you. And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone; so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your transgressions.'” Mark 11:22-25
