Just as Moses was delayed from coming back down the mountain, the people fell back into the idolatry they were just delivered from in Egypt (Exodus 32)…After all they did not know how long he would be on the mountain, 40 days seemed like an eternity and they lost patience.
Likewise in the last days the religious masses will tire of waiting for Jesus’ return and will take things into their own hands saying that this is what God has told us to do.
2 Peter 3:3-9 : “knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.” For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.”
Oftentimes when we expect to see something take place and it doesn’t, we take things in our own hands (Remember the lesson of Abraham and Hagar). The obvious conclusion: Jesus has not come back, so WE need to do something to make it happen! They are “walking according to their own desires.” Let’s do it for him since He has not returned.
Not realizing judgment (the Day of the Lord) is indeed coming to earth in God’s timing.
Believers are told to not forget “one thing” – the word forget in Greek is lanthano – to be hidden, secretly, unaware, without knowing. In other words, God’s word will still be fulfilled, even with those who intentionally ignore it. But we need to have His perspective and he is very patient, but when he commences to work it can be swift.
The gospel whose purpose is to save ones soul is replaced today with many variations. Some are wanting to save the world or save the environment. But dominionists have something even more insidious for a solution. They believe we don’t have to wait for him to return to set things in order, we can do it by the authority given to the church.
This is why Dominionism goes completely against God’s word, it neglects the declaring of the gospel for methods to “Christianize the world.”
God didn’t send Moses back to Egypt to restructure their worship and convert them to the true God. Instead, He was concerned with his people’s worship and asked for Israel to leave the land to worship him. Eventually He took Israel out permanently and brought them into the Promised Land. Which in type is a picture of the church and saints in heaven.
Christ never attempted to reform the evil culture of His day, he told us we are to be in the world but not if it.
Dominionists do not believe that the Church must wait for the coming of Christ (and) for the Kingdom of God to come to earth, but the church must arise and take her rightful place. They want to take back dominion from Satan and control the world for Christ. “Kingdom now advocates” view anything less than the Church taking over the world before the return of Jesus as defeat.
Do they not read what Jesus said in the gospels or the book of Revelation? To establish the kingdom on earth first so that Christ can return and be king is not instructed.
Jesus never said we would win over the world, but instead would, through preaching the gospel, transfer people from the kingdom of darkness (this fallen world) into the kingdom of light (the kingdom of His Son). The Kingdom of God that now resides in the believer is a moral spiritual influence under Jesus, our Lord and master. However if one goes against his word, the prophecies, can He be their Lord?
