MAN GAVE UP DOMINION OF THE EARTH TO SATAN:
AN END TIMES LIE
“Dominionism” is one of the basic lies which the dragon (Satan) uses to build his end times church.
“Dominionism” (or “Dominion Theology“) is a movement by pretend Christians to exert control over the whole earth.
In the late 1980s, several prominent evangelical authors used the phrase Dominion Theology (and other terms such as dominionism) to label a loose grouping of theological movements that made direct appeals to this passage in Genesis. [Gen 1:26] Christians typically interpret this passage as meaning that God gave humankind responsibility over the Earth, but the distinctive aspect of Dominion Theology is that it is interpreted as a mandate for Christian stewardship in civil affairs, no less than in other human matters.
The basic endgame to Dominionism is unBiblical. That goal is a church which rules the earth and presents the earth to Jesus when He comes back at His Second Coming.
As befits such a movement, it all begins with twisting legitimate Scripture. In this case, one of the Bible verses used by the Dominionists is Genesis 1:26.
“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”
This is basically repeated in Genesis 1:27-28.
“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”
So far, so good.
Where the lie begins is in the claim by Dominionists that man lost his dominion over the earth to Satan when Adam sinned–a claim that is found NOWHERE in God’s Word. Because man has supposedly lost his dominion, the “church” conveniently needs to reassert its dominion over the earth.
What “proof” do the Dominionists give that Satan now has dominion over the earth? Why, Satan’s own words.
“And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.”
So the Dominionists base their entire creed on the words of Satan–a notorious liar.
The claim is that Jesus did not “correct” the devil’s lie about the kingdoms of this world belonging to him.
This is false. Jesus said:
“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”
Jesus said NO TRUTH is in the devil. Which makes Satan’s claim that he somehow has dominion over the kingdoms of this world a LIE.
However, what can one expect from a movement that will fulfill the Bible’s prediction of Satan worship in the end times?
Scripture directly refutes the central claim of Dominionism: that Satan somehow took over dominion of this world from man after Adam and Eve sinned in the garden.
“What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet: All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field; The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.”
Dominionists claim that the church has to take dominion of the whole earth. And the Bible says there will be a church which does just exactly that: a church (or religious movement) which looks like Christianity but which speaks the words of the dragon (Satan).
The church of the dragon.
“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.”
God’s Word also declares that this satanic church movement will deceive men by using end times miracles.
“And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; “
The whole world will worship the dragon.
“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
Going hand-in-hand with the claim that man lost dominion of the earth is the lie that Satan is the god of this world. Both are important to those seeking to elevate the dragon.
Man did not lose dominion over the earth. That is written nowhere in Scripture (outside of the devil’s words).
Which makes the claim that man has to “re-take dominion” a lie.
There is nothing left to retake.
“For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.”
—1 John 5:4
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-4
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
