The New World Order and Dominion Theology Both have the same goal in mind: control of the planet
The NWO crowd desires control of the earth in order to save it from humanity
Dominion Theology desires control of the earth in order to save it from non-believers
In March 1919, the American Baptist Publication Society published a 196-page book entitled The New World Order. The book, written in the aftermath of the First World War by Samuel Zane Batten, contains much information that is interesting to study 94 years after it was published.
One such piece of information is this quote by British PM David Lloyd George: “We are laying the foundations of a new world.”
After the horrific carnage of the First World War, with its nearly 39 million in casualties, talk of a “New World Order” became a popular topic. After the end of the Second War War in 1945, such talk dominated post-war planning, culminating with the formation of the United Nations.
The New World Order book by Batten was one of several to be printed in the interwar period. The most famous was The New World Order by H.G. Wells. Perhaps the most chilling quote from Wells’ book was:
“Countless people will hate the New World Order and will die protesting against it.”
Batten’s book is interesting in another, perhaps unintended way. The book gives the reader a glimpse into the incubation period of a growing offshoot of Christianity called Dominionism or Dominion Theology, sometimes referred to as Kingdom Now theology.
The Dominion Theology posits that man will conquer the earth for Christ before there can be a Second Coming. Since their theology is man-centered–at the very least in the near term–Dominionists many times look for political solutions to spiritual problems.
In this regard, they are allies, witting or not, with other New World Order advocates. In fact, much of Dominion Theology language sounds like it was taken from quotes of the worker bees of the New World Order. It’s mainly in their claimed ends that the two camps differ.
Most histories of Dominion Theology mark the beginnings of the movement in the 1960s or 1970s. But readers of Batten’s The New World Order will find examples of Dominionist thinking throughout the book.
Representative thoughts of the entire book are found on page 19:
“We are coming to see that the kingdom of God in Christ’s conception never means anything less than a righteous human society on earth.”
“In this new vision, we find the summons to a great new task. We are called to find the defects in the present social order and to lay new and Christian foundations.We are called by the Christian hope to reconstruct the social order in accord with the will of God and the ideal of the kingdom.”
As Batten’s New World Order demonstrates,, the language and thoughts of Dominionism predated the 1960s by decades.
To Bible-believing Christians, hope lies not in “righteous human society” or the “social order” or of anything of this present world.
The New Testament idea of hope is the recognition that in Christ is found the fulfillment of the Old Testament promises (Matthew 12:21, 1 Peter 1:3). Christian hope is rooted in faith in the divine salvation in Christ (Galatians 5:5). Hope of Christians is brought into being through the presence of the promised Holy Spirit (Romans 8:24-25). It is the future hope of the resurrection of the dead (Acts 23:6), the promises given to Israel (Acts 26:6-7), the redemption of the body and of the whole creation (Romans 8:23-25), eternal glory (Colossians 1:27), eternal life and the inheritance of the saints (Titus 3:5-7), the return of Christ (Titus 2:11-14), transformation into the likeness of Christ (1 John 3:2-3), the salvation of God (1 Timothy 4:10) or simply Christ Himself (1 Timothy 1:1).”
The Bible speaks of an end times power that will subdue “all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.” (Revelation 13:7)
This power is not a force for good; it will not subdue the earth for Christ, but antichrist. Jesus also warned multiple times about Christians of the end times being deceived. (Matthew 24)
Whether they are secular humanists, Dominonists, Theosophists or atheists, those who place their faith in The Plans of the Ancient Masters of Wisdom, or other New World Order plans to save and/or rule the world, are destined for disappointment.
It matters not what label they apply to themselves.
PRESENT, n. – That part of eternity dividing the domain of disappointment from the realm of hope.
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
