Christians Who Believe We are Kingdom Builders, Please Read
Please I plead with you dear reader: I was once a victim of "NAME IT CLAIM IT" "POWER KINGS" "GOD WANTS US TO TAKE DOMINION OVER THIS EARTH" "CALL DOWN GLORY NOW"
"WE GOT TO TAKE BACK WHAT THE DEVIL STOLE"
For three years I worked and strove to build up God's Kingdom for Him on this earth. I bought all of the books, CDs, DVDs, went to seminars and followed the false teachers and prophets like Kenneth Copeland, Creflo Dollar, Myles Monroe, and many, many others. In the end I was broke both financially and emotionally destroyed. What hurts most is the witness I was for my friends who are unsaved, who were watching on the sidelines wondering, thinking "there goes another crazy Christian. As the bank was taking over my house, I was on the phone pleading and begging Kenneth Copeland Ministries to please pray for a miracle for me. The young man did pray and my prayer was answered because I lost everything and now 5 years later I can see it all so clearly now. Praise God!
Yes, surely God does plan on His children to be "sons of God" and "heirs of God, and joint heirs with Christ." (Romans 8:14-17; 1 Corinthians 2:9) To rule and reign with Christ over the world to come (Hebrews 2:5-8)
BUT NOT NOW IN THIS EARTH...
Yes the kingdom of God is within us and the literal kingdom will come where we will serve as kings and priest throughout all the ages to come. Revelation 1:5-6. Revelation 21:2; 21:24-26

What is Dominion Theology?
by Thomas Ice
But it is dominion that we are after. Not just a voice.
It is dominion we are after. Not just influence.
It is dominion we are after. Not just equal time.
It is dominion we are after.
World conquest. That's what Christ has commissioned us to accomplish.
Modern Dominionists make a mistake similar to those to whom Christ spoke in
Luke 24:26: "Was if not necessary for the Christ to suffer these things & to enter into His
glory?" So it is true of His Church. She must first suffer humiliation, during this age, &
then she will be exalted & exercise dominion after the return of Christ in His Kingdom.
A major disagreement exists between Dominionists & nonDominionists over whether
or not the Church will be able to achieve millennial conditions during this age before
Christ returns. Here we see the error of trying to impatiently reach ahead &
prematurely introduce paradise upon earth in a way that is out of sync with God's plan.
Even though Dominionists say that they are accomplishing their Kingdom building, not
through human efforts, but by the empowerment of the Holy Spirit, the simple fact is
that if the Bible does not teach their view (which it does not) then they are striving in
vain by the arm of the flesh. This misguided effort will only lead to a waste of resources
& wrong participation with the goals & directives of the world. The question of the
timing of the Millennium affects the goals & objectives of believers today. Therefore it
is extremely important that we correctly understand Scripture on this important subject.
