In my previous post I mentioned that the New Apostolic Reformation, otherwise known as the NAR, is a rapidly growing movement in evangelicalism of which Christians should be aware and alarmed. The NAR adherents are also known as Dominionists and this movement’s “theology,” if you will, can be referred to as Dominionism.
Enticed by the idea that they can save America … recapturing it by “taking back” society one mountain at a time, the NAR speaks of “taking dominion” over each of these areas of culture:
According to the NAR, its movement is designed to bring about Christ’s second coming. Oh … interesting that He needs some help in that!
What is all of this going to accomplish?
According to latter rain theology, these super apostles and prophets will become immortal, will subdue the earth through the seven mountain mandate, or the seven spheres of influence, will conquer the enemies of God (anyone who opposes the NAR). Once the earth has been completely conquered, then Jesus can come. Until then, He is being held in Heaven. Once MAN perfects this world, Jesus can come and man will lay the earth at His feet.
I have spoken and written a lot about the mystic revelation that is invading the church. Peter Wagner and his movement is no different. Consider some of these book titles promoted through his website, www.wagnerleadership.com: Supernatural Transformation, Mystic Awakening, Unlocking the Heavens, 90 Days to Possessing your Healing.
Titles of books, redefining the gospel, talks of “taking dominion” and things like these OUGHT to sound the alarm and raise huge caution flags for every Bible believing Christian. This movement is NOT biblical, but rather, IS heretical teaching and Christians MUST be on their guard with it. This is another blatant example of fierce wolves coming in amongst us and not sparing the flock.
There are many well known names that may surprise you who promote this faulty theology. I’ll mention just a few in my next post.
