Dominion Theology/Kingdom Now
Dr. Kluane Spake
Dominion Theology is also known by some as Reconstructionism or Reformation theology.
The basic important thing to know about Dominion theology is that prior to the literal coming of Christ, the believer will begin to take dominion over every area of life. Dominion was the mandate of creation in Genesis and dominion will be regained before it is over. Dominion was the BLESSING that the Creator gave his human creation.
We, as the Kingdom of God, will eventually reign with Christ over the earth (as Rev. 5:10 says). The primary difference in Dominion Theology is WHEN we will rule and reign with Christ. We should rule NOW. We should take every promise of God and see it as fully engaged for us now.
Yes, we agree with the song "Majesty" (written by Jack Hayford), and we do "Glorify Christ Jesus, the King." His "Kingdom authority flows from His throne unto His own." Jesus gave us His authority and we are to reclaim the earth -- not just in a spiritual sense, but through economical, political, educational, and social reform as well.
Jesus is held in the heavenlies until all things are restored under His feet. He will not physically return to earth until the church has brought a measure of
1. The Devil stole the dominion given by God to humanity through the temptation of the garden;
2. What was accomplished by Jesus on the Cross was the vehicle God gave us to take dominion back from Satan. Jesus overcame all things at the cross. It is the job of the believer to activate that truth.
3. Jesus won’t physically return until the Church takes dominion and takes Her place. The believer should rise up and take dominion over society through social action. This victorious ruling presence will be part of the end Glory of God that will fill the earth ( 2 Thes. 2:1-12);
The rule of the Church.
(a) Dominion Theology teaches that the mission of the church and the believer goes beyond the spiritual transformation of individuals, to a mandate to change society - in opposition to secular humanism.
(b) Jesus is already pleased with us. We take His love and acceptance and influence the world around us.
(c) (b) Motivation for godly living, (Titus 2:13) -- is directly connected with the privilege of restructuring society for greater good.
(d) Health and prosperity is part of our legacy.
(e) Our works never change the way Good views us, but with joy we embrace our destiny and help set up the Kingdom for eternal reign.
