THE BELIEVER’S FIVE-FOLD MANDATE Be Fruitful Multiply Replenish the Earth Subdue it Have Dominion
SUBDUING A NATION: A WORKING DEFINITION According to Matthew 28: 18 – 20, you have not subdued a nation until the principles, the values and virtues of the kingdom of God have been accepted as a normal way of life in society. This is what it means “go teach them to observe and to do all things whatsoever he has commanded us”.
