Ever notice how dominionists (and their prophets) base their warped theology, especially as it pertains to “taking our land back for Jesus”, from the old testament? Its almost as though the enacting of the new covenant never took place.
If you understand this, its easy to see how they foster these weird ideas about America. Their idea’s of American Exceptionalism and America’s ‘Manifest Destiny’, (see, Dominionism and the Rise of Christian Imperialism) are found in the old testament, under the OLD covenant God made with Israel: not America. Or with any other nation, as far as that goes.
They work toward and see a future America existing, before Jesus returns, operating as a theocracy. Even though there is no biblical support for this idea under the new covenant. In fact the world (which includes America) and the recognized Church (the Church recognized by the world) doesn’t appear to be in too good of shape, just prior to Jesus’ return. (2 Thessalonians 2, Revelation 13)
Irregardless of your theological beliefs concerning last day prophecy, I sincerely hope you’re not waiting for your ‘land’ (if it be America or not) to become a Christian nation (theocracy) before Jesus returns, for it will never happen. Under the new covenant nations and/or ‘land’ are not Christian….only individual souls are.
“Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.” Rev.1:7
