ANTICHRIST. Dave Hunt Kingdom/Dominion Theology Part 1 (February 1, 1987), accessed July 12, 2015, https://www.thebereancall.org/content/kingdomdominion-theology-part-i. There are many factors that make up the growing apostasy and seduction of the church. One of the most alarming, least understood, and fastest spreading errors is the teaching that earth instead of heaven is the ultimate home for the church, and that her goal is to take over the world and establish the kingdom of God. Only then, it is said, can Christ returnnot, however, to take

us to His Fathers house as He promised His disciples in John 14, but to reign over the Kingdom which we have established for Him. . . . [I]f the real Jesus Christ is going to catch His bride up from earth to meet Him in the air (1 Thess. 4:17), then those who work to build a kingdom for a Christ whom they will meet with their feet planted on earth have been under heavy delusion indeed! They have been working for the Antichrist! Hal Lindsey The Road to Holocaust, 269 Bestselling author Hal Lindsey warned what could

happen to the church in the last days if she began to see herself as the establisher of God's kingdom: The last days of the church on the earth may be largely wasted seeking to accomplish a task that only the LORD Himself can and will do directly. 9 Ways Kingdom Now Theology Impacts the Church 1. 2. 3. 4.

Sola Fide faith alone Sola Gratia grace alone Sola Scriptura Scripture alone

Soli Deo Gloria To the glory of God alone SLBC Position Statement No. 7 TEMPORARY SPIRITUAL GIFTS This church teaches that the miraculous sign gifts, including the gift of tongues, (always the ability to speak in a previously unlearned, known language) along with the gift of healings were temporal gifts, given by the Holy Spirit solely to authenticate both the apostles and their message before the close of the canon of Scripture (1 Cor. 13:8-10). We do not believe that these are active as gifts

today. However, we affirm that God is sovereign and may heal today. We believe that the majority of what is termed miraculous within the contemporary charismatic movement is something other than the Biblical gifts of tongues or healing. Isaiah 35:5-6 5 Then the eyes of the blind will be opened And the ears of the deaf will be unstopped. 6 Then the lame will leap like a deer, And the tongue of the mute will shout for joy. For waters will break forth in the wilderness And streams in

the Arabah. John Wimber John Wimber and Kevin Springer, Power Evangelism (Bloomington, MN: Chosen, 2009), 19. I was already acquainted with George Eldon Ladds writings (he was a Fuller Theological Seminary professor), but it was not until I read his book Jesus and the Kingdom that I realized how his work on the kingdom formed a theological basis for power evangelism. As I read Dr. Ladds works, and then read afresh the gospel accounts, I became convinced that power

evangelism was for today. John Wimber The Vineyard Mission Statement http://www.vineyardusa.org/site/about/vineyard-values/kingdom-of-god Commitment to the theology and practice of the kingdom of God is the most fundamental core value in the Vineyard. When the Vineyard talks about the kingdom, we are talking about the kingdom of God as a dynamic reality that is the future reign of God breaking into the present through the life and ministry of Jesus. We have been commissioned to proclaim the good news

of the kingdom of God, bearing witness to the already and the not yet of the kingdom in words and deeds. This understanding of the kingdom of God is the central motif that gives both structure and definition to all of our theology. We view the kingdom of God as the overarching and integrating theme of the Bible (italics added). Charles Ryrie Dispensationalism, Page 177 Non-charismatic progressive dispensationalists have not faced the question as to why signs and wonders are not

characteristic of the church if in fact Christ is already on Davids throne. During our Lords earthly life many signs validated His claim to be the promised Davidic king for Israel. Now that He is allegedly reigning as Davidic King (according to progressives), why are there not miraculous signs happening today in the already stage of his Davidic reign? Order of Pauls Letters 1. Galatians (A.D. 49) 2. 12 Thessalonians (A.D. 51) 3. 12 Corinthians (A.D. 56) 4. Romans (A.D. 57)

Patriarch of Constantinople Chrysostom, Homily 29 on First Corinthians. This whole place is very obscure: but the obscurity is produced by our ignorance of the facts referred to and by their cessation, being such as then used to occur but now no longer take place. And why do they not happen now? Why look now, the cause too of the obscurity has produced us again another question: namely, why did they then happen, and now do so no more? Augustine (A.D. 354430)

Bishop of Hippo Homily 6:10 on the First Epistle of John. In the earliest times, the Holy Ghost fell upon them that believed: and they spoke with tongues, which they had not learned, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Acts 2:4 These were signs adapted to the time. For there behooved to be that betokening of the Holy Spirit in all tongues, to show that the Gospel of God was to run through all tongues over the whole earth. That thing was done for a betokening, and it passed away. . . . If then the witness of the presence of the Holy Ghost be not now given through these miracles, by what

is it given, by what does one get to know that he has received the Holy Ghost? Philip Schaff History of the Christian Church, vol. 1 , p. 236-37. We do not know how long the glossolalia, as thus described by Paul, continued. It passed away gradually with the other extraordinary or strictly supernatural gifts of the apostolic age. It is not mentioned in the Pastoral, nor in the Catholic Epistles. We have but a few allusions to it at the close of the second century. Irenus (Adv. Haer. 1. v. c. 6 1,) speaks of many brethren whom

he heard in the church having the gift of prophecy and of speaking in diverse tongues ( ), bringing the hidden things of men ( ) to light and expounding the mysteries of God ( ). It is not clear whether by the term diverse, which does not elsewhere occur, he means a speaking in foreign languages, or in diversities of tongues altogether peculiar, like those meant by Paul. Philip Schaff History of the Christian Church, vol. 1 , p. 236-37. The latter is more probable. Irenus himself had to learn the

language of Gaul. Tertullian (Adv. Marc. V. 8; comp. De Anima, c. 9) obscurely speaks of the spiritual gifts, including the gift of tongues, as being still manifest among the Montanists to whom he belonged. At the time of Chrysostom it had entirely disappeared; at least he accounts for the obscurity of the gift from our ignorance of the fact. From that time on the glossolalia was usually misunderstood as a miraculous and permanent gift of foreign languages for missionary purposes. But the whole history of missions furnishes no clear example of such a gift for such a purpose. 9 Ways Kingdom Now Theology

Zechariah 8:12 For there will be peace for the seed: the vine

McConnell A Different Gospel: A Bold and Revealing Look at the Historical Basis of the Word of Faith Movement, Updated and electronic ed. (Peabody, MA: Hendrickson, 2011), loc. 48134846. The Faith teachers deny that the kingdom of God is in the process of realization, claiming that it is present in the earth to the point that believers can be delivered from all sin,

sickness, and poverty of the devil. They . . . claim that the believer has absolute authority to conquer and eradicate these forces of evil completely from his life. The only process of realization is in the faith of the believer, not in the presence of Gods kingdom. In the jargon of biblical theology, the Faith interpretation of the kingdom of God could be labeled as a hyper-realized eschatology. D.R. McConnell A Different Gospel: A Bold and Revealing Look at the Historical Basis of the Word of Faith Movement, Updated and electronic ed. (Peabody, MA: Hendrickson, 2011), loc. 48134846.

The Faith eschatology is hyper realized because of its extreme promises to the believer of a life which is absolutely invulnerable to any type of evil. It claims that the powers of the age to come have completely come in this life and that these powers can be used at will by the believer with enough faith and knowledge of how to operate them. There is no process of realization of Gods kingdom in Faith eschatology; the kingdom can be completely realized in the lives of those who exercise Faith principles. We see this hyper-realized eschatology in the Faith doctrines of healing, authority, prosperity, identification and deification. The over-realized nature of Faith eschatology emphasizes the Now of the kingdom of God. . . . The . . . Not yet mystery of the kingdom and its powers is distorted by the

hyper-realized eschatology of the Faith movement. Galatians 4:13-14 13 but you know that it was because of a bodily illness that I preached the gospel to you the first time; 14 and that which was a trial to you in my bodily condition you did not despise or loathe, but you received me as an angel of God, as Christ Jesus Himself. 1 Timothy 5:23 No longer drink water exclusively, but use a

little wine for the sake of your stomach and your frequent ailments. Order of Pauls Letters 1. Galatians (A.D. 49) 2. 12 Thessalonians (A.D. 51) 3. 12 Corinthians (A.D. 56) 4. Romans (A.D. 57) 5.

2 Timothy 4:20 Erastus remained at Corinth, but Trophimus I left sick at Miletus. Revelation 2:9 I know your tribulation and your poverty (but you are rich), and the blasphemy by those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.
