Dominion Theology: Lance Wallnau

Watch Lance Wallnau through this link on Morningstar TV. This is the man with the plan.

Wallnau's plan to create the next revival and reformation.
The Great Commission (Matthew 28:19) is regarded as an inherent part of the dominion mandate, with the express implication that entire nations should be discipled and that Christ’s authority over all the Earth should become manifest through the Church which is His body. All people will, in all walks of life, benefit from the imposing of God’s laws by the Church, which is the overt manifestation of His kingdom on Earth. This is a distortion of the Great Commission.

Matthew 28:19 is not a dominion mandate as it only involves the proclamation of the Gospel among all nations. Christ cautioned His disciples against expectations that entire nations would repent and enter the kingdom of God: “Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it” (Matt. 7:14; cf. Luke 13:23-24). Repentance is an act in which individuals accept the saving grace of the Lord Jesus in faith – a government can’t do it on behalf of all its citizens. Even if certain political leaders are saved, that does not mean that the entire government is constituted of saved persons who will serve the Lord with one accord, thereby giving political expression to Christian dominionism.

Because of the connection Rick Joyner has with the Knights of Malta (Catholic church), I believe he will succeed with creating a revival, and he will assist in unifying the body of Christ into one Church. Dominionists distort Christ’s injunction that we should be one as He and the Father are one (John 17:11,21). They interpret this command structurally rather than spiritually. To them, the spiritual bond among believers should manifest ecumenically by working towards the realization of a united world church. The spiritual bond in the united family of churches, particularly in the WCC, is very weak and poorly defined to avoid offending any of its constituent denominations. In this way, they have only succeeded in achieving a predominantly nominal form of Christianity with an outward form of godliness, but denying the regenerating power of the Holy Spirit (2 Tim. 3:5). They may have a kingdom vision to change the world in terms of their own agenda but they are not used of God. Paul clearly admonishes true Christians to leave the ranks of nominal believers: “From such turn away!” (2 Tim. 3:5). Structural unity should not be pursued when it compromises one’s faith. Rather depart from them: “For there must also be factions among you, that those who are approved may be recognized among you” (1 Cor. 11:19).
