Dominion Theology: Is It Biblical?

dominion-theology-288

During the primaries, we heard so much about Christian Dominion Theology. Ted Cruz was accused of believing in Dominion Theology; and his father (a pastor) does preach this form of theology.

I thought that it would be helpful to research Dominion Theology, which I will call “DT” for the rest of this piece. As with everything else, we must compare teachings against Scripture. If it does not line up with the Word, it is false teaching, and we should completely avoid it.

I honestly do not know where those who adhere to DT find anything in the Word of God that supports these views. Let’s look at the definition of DT from gotquestions.org:

Question: “What is dominion theology / theonomy / Christian reconstructionism?”

Answer: Dominion theology refers to a line of theological interpretation and thought with regard to the role of the church in contemporary society. Dominion theology is also known as Christian reconstructionism and theonomy. Dominion theology states that biblical Christianity will rule all areas of society, personal and corporate. Christian reconstructionism reasons that society will be reconstructed by the Law of God as preached in the gospel and the Great Commission. Theonomy is a post-millennial view believing that all of the moral laws contained in the Old Testament are yet binding today. Although these might sound somewhat disparate, they have all been closely linked together to the point that people often use the terms interchangeably.

Those who hold these views believe that it is the duty of Christians to create a worldwide kingdom patterned after the Mosaic Law. They believe that Christ will not return to earth until such a kingdom has been established. The principal goal, then, of dominion theology and Christian reconstructionism is political and religious domination of the world through the implementation of the moral laws, and subsequent punishments, of the Old Testament (the sacrificial and ceremonial laws having been fulfilled in the New Testament). This is not a government system ruled by the church, but rather a government conformed to the Law of God. – source (Emphasis mine)

From Jan Markell of Olivetreeviews.org

Brethren, right from the start we can see error in this teaching. Jesus never spoke of  changing governments!  As a matter of fact, when the Pharisees tried to trick Him about Rome’s government, He said this:

“And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. And they marvelled at him” (Mark 12:17)

Our Lord Jesus came to us with a better Covenant of Grace. He came to reconcile those who would repent and believe in His redemptive work on the Cross for the forgiveness of sins. Jesus knew that we were hopeless without Him. He knew that we could never pay our sin debt. But this had virtually nothing to do with governmental systems!

Gotquestions.org goes on:

Dominion theology / Christian reconstructionism is largely based upon a post-millennial view of covenantalism. Post-millennial refers to the belief that Christ will return to earth after the thousand-year reign of God’s kingdom, and covenantalism refers to the belief that biblical history is divided into three major covenants supposedly described in Scripture—of redemption, of works, and of grace. Adherents believe that we currently exist under the covenant of grace, and that the church has replaced Israel, and we are now in the millennial Kingdom of God. Man, under the covenant of grace, is responsible to rule the world, to hold dominion over it, in obedience to the laws of God.

The problem with these beliefs is that they rest upon a distorted view of Scripture. Scripture clearly teaches a premillennial view of the Kingdom of God (Zechariah 14:4-9; Matthew 25:31-34), the “covenant of grace” is an extra-biblical construct, Israel and the Church are distinct throughout biblical history and prophecy, and God never commanded the Church to revamp society. Instead, believers are commanded to preach the Gospel as in Matthew 28:19, 20, but God clearly intends to implement worldwide reform Himself (Revelation 19:11-20:4). Though it is clearly unbiblical, dominion theology persists. It is, in fact, a great threat to biblical Christianity. Once at home solely within Reformed circles, dominion theology and Christian reconstructionism are now creeping into many Protestant churches and are making a large impact on the beliefs of Charismatic churches in particular. – source (Emphasis mine)

Did you see that?  These teachers of DT believe that the Church replaced Israel!

Replacement Theology is a lie from the pit of hell. Here is an article I wrote on this subject:

The Lie of Replacement Theology

Back to gotquestions.org

As with any new teaching we are exposed to, we need to be like the Bereans of Acts 17:11: “And the people of Berea were more open-minded than those in Thessalonica, and they listened eagerly to Paul’s message. They searched the Scriptures day after day to check up on Paul and Silas, to see if they were really teaching the truth.” Dominion theology / Christian reconstructionism doesn’t align with what we read in the Scriptures. Although this is just a “nutshell” summary of dominion theology, the points made are very clear. Dominion theology is not a theology for a believer to live by, but rather one to avoid. – source  (Emphasis mine)

Jesus does not need or want us to overtake governments before His return!  His heart is for the lost. He wants to reconcile the lost to His Father in heaven. This has virtually nothing to do with government. It has everything to do with the souls of men and women.

If you are in a church which teaches this heresy, flee from it! Do not look back!

Here are the last words of Jesus before He ascended to the Father:

“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost” (Matthew 28:19).

He was speaking of teaching the people of all the nations of world – not the governments!

Jesus will return when His Father tells him it is the appointed time; and this has absolutely nothing to do with the governments of nations being ready. It has to do with the very last Gentile being brought into the Kingdom of God!

Remember brethren – our job is to share Salvation with the lost. That is why we are still here!

ZIKA VIRUS: Caused by Sinister Bio-Engineering by NWO Scientists – This was NO accident

 

zika-victim

Can you say “Population Control?”

The question remains: Was this unintended consequences by the “mad scientist” Bill Gates, or something more sinister? Having read many articles about Mr. Gates, I tend to think that the latter is true.

Click here to read about “Zika babies” with Microcelphaly

Bill Gates and his foundation is all about depopulation. He was caught by India after sending “vaccines” to administer to young women, after scientists analyzed the composition of the vaccines and found toxins in them. The scientists proceeded with their investigations after many girls were getting terribly ill and even dying. There is a lawsuit filed by India against the Gates Foundation.

Bill Gates and his Quest to Depopulate the world

From Naturalnews.com

GMO skeptics like myself have been warning for years of the unintended consequences of genetic pollution. Even when genetically engineered organisms are released into the world with the best of intentions, such actions can wreak havoc on the ecosystem and human civilization in ways that simply can’t be foreseen by the world’s most well-meaning scientists.

I specifically warned about this in 2012, listing the top 12 threats to humanity posed by out of control science. In that infographic, I designated “Level 4” hazards as “Self-replicating pollution,” naming genetically engineered organisms as the vector for such threats against humanity. (In the years since, many top science figures like Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk have repeated the warnings from my list, including threats from AI.)

Now we may be seeing the first wave of the horrific destruction that can be unleashed by self-replicating genetically modified organisms. The Zika virus, now spreading with unbridled ferocity, appears to have been caused by the release of genetically engineered mosquitoes that scientists hoped would sharply reduce malaria infections.

“The Zika virus outbreak currently gripping the Americas could have been sparked by the release of genetically modified mosquitoes in 2012,” reports The Mirror. “The insects were engineered by biotechnology experts to combat the spread of dengue fever and other diseases and released into the general population of Brazil in 2012… The Aedes aegypti mosquito sub-species that carries both the Zika virus and dengue was the type targeted with genetically modified mosquitoes.” – source

But something went horribly wrong.

As pointed out in this fantastic article by AntiMedia.org, the genetic engineers running this massive open-air experiment with mosquitoes and humans failed to consider the impact of antibiotics in the environment caused by their heavy use in agricultural (animal feed) operations.GMO skeptics like myself have been warning for years of the unintended consequences of genetic pollution. Even when genetically engineered organisms are released into the world with the best of intentions, such actions can wreak havoc on the ecosystem and human civilization in ways that simply can’t be foreseen by the world’s most well-meaning scientists. – source

I personally do not believe that Bill Gates fits into the category of “Well-meaning scientists. He is working closely with the United Nations on their Sustainable Development Agenda. A large part of this initiative is to decrease the planet of most of its people. We are at approximately 6.8 billion people presently. The goal is 500 million.

The Naturalnews piece goes on:

As AntiMedia reports:

Only the male modified Aedes mosquitoes are supposed to be released into the wild — as they will mate with their unaltered female counterparts. Once offspring are produced, the modified, scientific facet is supposed to ‘kick in’ and kill that larvae before it reaches breeding age — if tetracycline is not present during its development…

According to an unclassified document from the Trade and Agriculture Directorate Committee for Agriculture dated February 2015, Brazil is the third largest in “global antimicrobial consumption in food animal production” — meaning, Brazil is third in the world for its use of tetracycline in its food animals. As a study by the American Society of Agronomy, et. al., explained, “It is estimated that approximately 75% of antibiotics are not absorbed by animals and are excreted in waste.” One of the antibiotics (or antimicrobials) specifically named in that report for its environmental persistence is tetracycline.

The presence of antibiotics causes the mosquitoes that are supposed to die off to survive and reproduce. These same genetically engineered mosquitoes may then bite humans, injecting them with the Zika virus that’s now causing horrific mutations in head and brain formation in children. (Emphasis mine)

Zika virus outbreak linked to release of genetically engineered mosquitoes… disastrous unintended consequences now threaten life across the Americas.

Those who warned about threats to the ecosystem were maliciously smeared and labeled “anti-science”

Myself and many others warned the world about all this, and in return we have been maliciously and repeatedly death-threated, slandered, defamed, blackballed and labeled “anti-science.” Yet now, the world is starting to see why we were the wise ones after all: We warned about this exact scenario, knowing that Mother Nature doesn’t follow the desires of for-profit corporations and their foolish experiments with the ecosystem.

The Zika virus may be just the beginning. GMOs and their related chemicals are right now devastating honeybee populations, destroying soil microbiology, polluting rivers and oceans, and contaminating the food supply with cancer-causing glyphosate herbicide, a chemical that can cause cancer at parts-per-trillion concentrations.

Two years ago, the EPA quietly raised the limit of glyphosate allowable in food crops, selling out the public by doing the bidding of Monsanto and other biotech firms. The result is that eating cancer-causing poison is now considered “safe” by the EPA — the same incompetent, corrupt government regulator that knowingly allowed the children of Flint, Michigan, to drink lead water, month after month, without warning the public.

GMOs and the EPA / FDA / USDA… a whole new kind of war on humanity

We must now come to realize that the GMO industry and its captive government regulators (EPA, USDA, FDA) are actively engaged in a war on humanity. It is no coincidence that Bill Gates, a vocal advocate of active human depopulation, is also involved in the same kind of genetically engineered mosquitoes now linked to the Zika pandemic. When the globalists consider all the various ways in which they can murder six billion people and “save the planet” from overpopulation, mosquitoes and engineered viruses become the obvious vectors for achieving that aim.

See Group of scientists gave standing ovation for plan to kill 90 percent of human population with airborne Ebola for yet another example of how “scientists” are thrilled at the idea of using viruses and airborne delivery (via mosquitoes or otherwise) to commit mass genocide against humanity. This is the kind of thing they dream about unleashing in their war against a population problem that they think will end the world if they don’t drastically reduce the number of people living on our planet.

The Zika virus, in other words, might not even be an accident. If you give these scientists the most optimistic credit possible, you might say they intended for a positive outcome but didn’t realize the risks of what they were doing. But a more pessimistic analysis of their actions might reasonably conclude that they’re testing a bioweapon delivery system against humanity.

Only time will tell which interpretation is correct. Whatever the outcome, make no mistake that today’s biotech science is incredibly foolish, and the actions of these biotech corporations are putting the very future of humanity at extreme risk. Now, it seems, humanity is beginning to witness the true cost of arrogantly playing God with nature. – source

I wrote an article about the Georgia Guidestones, which articulate the NWO’s guidelines which will be enforced by the UN. In this article you will see what the population of the earth should be, according to the NWO:

The Georgia Guidestones: The Ten Commandments of Antichrist

God help us and forgive us. Only You are the Creator of life, and only You know how to sustain life.  Those who hate You want to drastically reduce the number of people on our planet. YOU made each of these people in Your likeness – and You love them all.

Thank You Lord for Your Son Jesus, and how He died on that Cross to offer Salvation to humanity.

Shalom b’Yeshua

Christian Lives Matter

isis-crucify-youth1-@w_elkher-640x480

I’m writing this truth at the risk of being called a bigot, a racist and many other slurs which will be hurled my way.  When “Black Lives Matter” (a Soros funded movement) came to be, if a person dared to say “All Lives Matter” they were labeled  a racist.  Have you noticed that everyone has rights except for the Christians?

From Breibart.com

Western countries are turning a blind eye to the genocide that the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) is committing against Christians in Iraq and Syria, reports the U.K.’s Daily Express, citing a charity group.

ISIS has already executed thousands of Christians and forced thousands more to flee ancient Christian communities in northeastern Syria and western Iraq, notes the article, adding that the jihadists demand they either covert to Islam, pay an extortionate rate/tax, or face execution, while other Christians are crucified.

“Despite concerns being raised by religious leaders including the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, the plight of Christian refugees is largely being ignored by the western world,” reports Daily Express. – source

Obama plans for thousands of Syrian refugees to come to America. How about Christian refugees from Syria and Iraq?  No – they are not considered “refugees” by the Obama regime. Only a very small amount of Christians from the Middle East have been allowed to come to America.

Obama’s disdain for Christians

Through these last 7 1/2 years, we have seen clearly that Obama has no use for Christians. He mocks the Bible and those who “Cling to their Bible and their guns.”

More from Breitbart.com

Jewish peer George Weidenfeld, who was able to escapee Nazi-occupied Austria with the assistance of British Christians, is funding a charity known as the Barnabas Fund in an effort to save the Syrian Christians.

“I have a debt to repay,” Lord Weidenfeld, who was rescued by Quakers at the age of five, told Daily Express.

ISIS “is unprecedented in its primitive savagery compared with the more sophisticated Nazis. When it comes to pure lust for horror and sadism, they are unprecedented. There never was such scum as these people,” later added Weidenfeld.

The charity has already mounted a series of missions to rescue the Christians in Syria.

Christians have reportedly been crucified, beheaded, raped, and forced to convert to Islam by ISIS. All the while, Christian children are being sold into slavery.

“It is like going back 1,000 years seeing the barbarity that Christians are having to live under. I think we are dealing with a group which makes Nazism pale in comparison and I think they have lost all respect for human life,” the charity’s founder and international chief Patrick Sookhdeo told Daily Express.

“Crucifying these people is sending a message and they are using forms of killing which they believe have been sanctioned by Sharia law,” he added. “For them what they are doing is perfectly normal and they don’t see a problem with it. It is that religious justification which is so appalling.” – source

Jewish lives matter too

Many of my readers know that I am a Jewish believer in Yeshua.  Less than a century ago, Hitler slaughtered 6 million of my people. He also slaughtered many millions of other ethnic groups.  Do these lives not matter?  THEY DO!!   Of course they do!  ALL LIVES MATTER!   Jesus says ALL lives matter!

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16)

It’s all coming down to Israel

We as believers in Christ know what to expect in this world. The Lord tells us. We know that all nations will be aligned against Israel in the last days. We also know what will happen:

“Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.  And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it” (Zechariah 12:2-3)

“And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord God, that my fury shall come up in my face. For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;  So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground. And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord God: every man’s sword shall be against his brother. And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the Lord” (Ezekiel 38: 18-23). (Emphasis mine)

So brethren, don’t fret at the insanity we all see happening in the world today. Jesus told us that these things would happen. The Word says that people will call good – evil – and evil – good. And that’s exactly what is happening!  So we can trust every Word in the Bible; it is all going to come to pass!

NASCAR LEGEND AT NATIONAL PRAYER BREAKFAST TELLS OBAMA “IF YOU DON’T KNOW JESUS, YOU’RE GOING TO HELL.”

going-to-hell

SITTING JUST FEET AWAY FROM THE PRESIDENT, FORMER NASCAR DRIVER AND HALL-OF-FAMER, DARRELL WALTRIP, GAVE HIS CHRISTIAN TESTIMONY TO AN AUDIENCE THAT INCLUDED THE DALAI LAMA

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 (KJV)

Waltrip said “If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior … you are going to hell.” Waltrip spoke about how Jesus transformed his life. He told the audience that before he was saved, it was all about him. “I did everything to satisfy me,” he said.

Then he was in a severe crash during a race and everything changed.

“I realized that wreck knocked me conscience,” Waltrip said. “It scared the hell out of me. I mean that literally. I realized, what if I had lost my life that day at Daytona? Would I have go to heaven or would I have gone to hell? I thought I was a good guy, but folks, let me tell you something: good guys go to hell.”

Today, Barack Obama heard the gospel of Jesus Christ preached and had yet another chance to get saved and avoid Hell.

He continued, “If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your lord and savior, if you don’t have a relationship, if he’s not the master of your life, if you’ve never gotten on your knees and asked him to forgive you of your sins, or if you are just a pretty good guy or a pretty good gal, you’re going to go to hell.” source

Waltrip also made a less than subtle reference to Ben Carson, a brain surgeon and likely 2016 Republican presidential candidate, who gave a controversial keynote address at the 2013 National Prayer Breakfast.

Jokingly, Waltrip said he wondered why he would be asked to be the keynote speaker. “I thought about it Mr. President, and I got it: I’m not a brain surgeon and I’m not running for office, so I’m the perfect guy to be here,” he said to laughter. “I hope that’s OK. My wife told me I shouldn’t say that, but she’s sitting down there shaking her head now.”

Personally, I think that Mr. Obama hand picked Mr. Waltrip to be the keynote speaker, because In his mind, Barack Obama looks down on NASCAR, probably considering it a redneck sport.

You will see exactly what I mean, when you read what he said when he took the podium:

“There aren’t many occasions that bring his Holiness under the same roof as NASCAR,” Obama said to laughter. “This may be the first. But God works in mysterious ways.”

Yes, Mr. President, God does indeed work in mysterious ways. He brought one of His children to speak on the same stage as a Buddhist monk. Mr. Waltrip’s words brought truth from the Word of God.

“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” John 8:12 (KJV)

Side note: After the Prayer Breakfast, a smaller and less advertised meeting took place. One hundred American Muslims and Buddhists were addressed by the Dalai Lama.

“His Holiness began by discussing the challenges that many Muslims have faced since the Sept. 11 attacks. A few individuals’ behavior he said, should not generalize the entire religious tradition—”It’s not fair, not right”—and added that he was concerned about the bad image Islam was getting. It is a service, he explained, for Muslims to stand up and not be complacent or indifferent in this environment, especially when Islam has such global significance. Muslim faith is about loving everyone, he said. “Muslim practitioners must extend love toward entire creation of Allah,” he said. The audience interrupted in applause.”

“This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:” Ephesians 4:17-18 (KJV)
