Kingdom Authority

Kingdom TheologyBelievers have consistently failed to take the commandment sgiven to us by Christ seriously. Rather than shining their lights you will generally find the people of God setting their sights on millennial fantasies during frightening periods of history.

The Hebrews misunderstood the intentions of Jesus and expected Him to bring His political rule to earth so that they could be released from the oppressive bondage of Rome. In part, because Jesus told them that He had come to earth to forward a spiritual kingdom instead, Christ was crucified.

The Medieval Church likewise successfully set up the authoritarian political rule of the church to fill the governmental void that was left after the fall of Rome.

So today while we see our society falling apart at the seams we find the Body of Christ again enamoured with this same Kingdom Theology as Christians seek for Christ to return to set up His political rule on earth. And if Christ won’t do it for them, then they will see to it themselves.

IDoctor Walter Martinndeed the Roman Church’s Dark Age thrust is alive and well in the church today as Kingdom of God theologies similar to that which held the attention of the church of the Middle Ages have become embraced in many charismatic circles. While proclaiming that the Kingdom of God is in the here and now they call on the church to set up a millenium apart from Christ’s return to earth. “Dominion theology, as it is called,” wrote Walter Martin in The Agony of Deceit, “states that until we do indeed subdue the creation, the return of the Lord Himself will be delayed.” This same belief system was instigated during the medieval period by personas such as Pope Gregory who wielded papal authority over kings in the name of the church dictating its policy to the world.

One of these dominionist groups calls itself the Restoration movement. Albert Dager in Vengeance is Ours described that this group believes that before the church can “be perfected and establish dominion, it must restore praise and worship as a means to enter into the presence of God. Only then will His blessings be poured out upon His people and they will be given the power to subdue spiritual principalities . . .What is perceived as spiritual is in reality soulish, contributing to a euphoric state of altered consciousness from repetitious choruses that follow on upon the other. The mesmerizing effect of the music creates a frame of mind open to suggestion by the subsequent preaching of dominion teachers who build on the fever of the moment with messages of future power and glory.”

The Shepherding Movement also adheres to the Kingdom of God theology. These folk have put together a hierarchy of authority that directs every aspect of their followers’ lives just as the same methodology dominated the feudal system of the pope-controlled Dark Ages. This was a period where everyone did as they were told with the ultimate authority resting in the Vatican. But the Vatican is exactly where a large group of charismatics are turning to today.

Consequently it does not seem to be a coincidence that the charismatic movement in the Catholic Church, which came out of Vatican II (1962-65), has become according to the Dictionary of Christianity in America “the most remarkable segment of the charismatic movement. Catholic historians and theologians are careful to point out that the movement is not new to Catholic history.” Indeed this is true and there are many thoughtful writers today who contend that the charismatic movement is merely a way to reinstate Catholicism in the Protestant Church so that the Pope can regain the authority that was lost during the Reformation. Indeed, as ecumenically based charismatics are increasingly becoming pope friendly while professing dogmas of unity apart from doctrinal truth as they gather under the common banner of charisma basked in New Worship we have to wonder if this is the case.

Jack Hayford Manifest PresenceAnd so, while imposing the most minimal doctrinal belief requirements, Jack Hayford wrote in Manifest Presence that it is “mandated of all Jesus’ disciples that we commit to one another on the basis of our choice to love, not our position on truth.” The common ground for this unity is seen in this instance as seeking Jesus first through new worship practices as Christians “answer the dual call – to worship and to worship together . . .we are being called to let our worship shape us into a ‘manner of persons’ who are willing to be bonded together in the presence of God and to become banded together for the extending of His Kingdom.”

In restating John Lennon’s “All You Need is Love” theme, the New Worshipper apparently believes that the church will unify itself and take over the world by singing love songs to God. Those who insist on doctrinal agreement as a basis for unity are generally labeled as dividers. It’s all about seeking God’s face through worship. There was no significant dispute over worship before the proponents of eastern mysticism came on the scene. And if the New Worshippers have their way, there will be no dispute in the future. For, as in Nimrod’s ancient Assyria, it is always “my way or the highway” once pagan superstition takes over.

Is the authoritative, corrupt, ignorant, persecution-filled, poverty-stricken and disease-ridden world system created by the church of the Middle Ages what these charismatics want to return to? Apparently this is so in many cases. And as the charismatic renewal with its ecumenical and Kingdom Theology message continues to take hold of Christendom we can expect a sustained resurgence of Medieval Catholicism in our future.

So even as Nimrod’s quest for world domination a la medieval superstition underpins modern kingdom theological pursuits, a host of charismatics proclaim that New Worship will usher in the coming of God’s kingdom on earth in two ways. The first kingdom is seen as the Kingdom of the Modern Church as it, in the same manner as its counterpart in the Dark Ages, brings the Kingdom of God to earth through authority and rule. The second kingdom is viewed as the Kingdom of Christ when He returns within the context of the manifestation of the last day’s outpouring of God’s Spirit on all mankind. This manifestation of the Spirit that ushers in Christ’s return is understood as the propagation of New Worship forms. Therefore Hayford wrote in Manifest Presence that the church “expands in dominion in direct proportion to its worship.” It will be “a new breed of human beings . . .whom God will use to reclaim the planet, and the way they will do that is through their worship.”

“Here it is,” wrote Anne Murchison in Praise and Worship. “Praise and worship in earth as it is in heaven (at the altar of incense) are the link between the spirit-filled believer and the Presence of God and His kingdom-life in earth as it is in heaven (in the holy of holies). . .Praise and worship are one of the missing keys to the kingdom. And He is putting those keys back into our hands today.”

InquisitionThe Inquisition resulted in the martyrdom of many faithful souls who dared to stand against the pagan superstition of the Roman Church. This incident ought to stand as an eternal lesson of the holocaust that invariably occurs when the Institutional Church elevates its people to God in worship while assuming Nimrod the warrior’s position of kingdom authority. The first amendment to the US Constitution, because of the oppression of the government sanctioned Church of England, was written to assure that a state religion could not be established in America. 3 Nonetheless it appears that New Worshippers have set their hearts on leading America back to a state that is controlled by a unified Institutionalized Church. They seem to want to become like the Roman Church that ruled the Western world for centuries with pagan superstition rather than truth. And, like our medieval predecessors, we see devaluation of biblical truth and the undermining of reason as the church submerses herself with the emotionalism of eastern mysticism.

3. The First Amendment in the Bill of Rights states: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” BACK

"I might not be a religious man myself but I know good music when I hear it, and this is very good! . . . I don’t think that I have ever given such high ratings to so many songs before. But the fact is that they are well deserved because the music is amazing. Simply wonderful religious ballads and they really get to your heart. . .everytime."
