[Posting an article on Dominionism from Herescope.com. This being something that has been on my heart recently as I watch with rapt attention what is going on in the world. No doubt evil is growing not only in America (and has been for years long before Obama) but also across the land as evil men and seducers wax worse and worse as they strive to unite the world in a one-world union.
Here, not only in America, but across the globe, serfs or the common man are viewed by the PTB (powers that be) as nothing more than cattle who need to be under the constant eye (look at the back of your dollar) of the state as she watches their every move and listens to their every word. Based of course on the pretense that we need to give up liberty in order to be protected from those nasty terrorists; terrorists who in fact may be you! Cameras recording conversations and actions are ubiquitous, e-mails and phone calls are often tracked and archived for years, full-body scans are now being implemented; in short, personal freedom and privacy are vanishing and are quickly being replaced with an Orwellian police state.
What is more, the economies of most industrialized nations are in shambles. Largely due to the concerted efforts of politicians to redistribute wealth to third world nations. Hence, jobs and industries that existed in many of these countries have disappeared from their given shores and are now off-shored in nations such as India, Mexico, China and elsewhere. Thus, in America at least, we have an unemployment rate that is well into the double-digits (see Shadow Stats for real numbers and not the govt/media lies) where many people wonder how they will make in through the next week and where they will find a job that pays more than $8.00 an hour.
All of this and more is causing many Americans to rise up and express their anger at the current administration across all areas of government (Congress, Presidential, State Governers, etc.). Their anger and passions being directed and even fueled by "conservative" talk show hosts/personalities like Lou Dobbs, Glenn Beck, Michael Savage, Ted Nugent and others. Also, there is the "grass roots" Tea Party movement that is gaining much traction as it attracts many folks from across the nation; some of them Christians, but many not. Thus, you will have the ecumenical mixing of light and darkness as Christians inevitably will be called upon to compromise in many, many areas the more involved they become. How about praying with Mormon Glenn Beck, or listening to Ted Nugent's wicked rock at a Tea Party rally, or suffering Michael Savage to blaspheme God?
And, I won't even touch the host of "conservatives" in these movements where many (I don't speak to all Rebublicans any more than all Democrats) are nothing of the sort but rather are sly politicians using the state of affairs as an opportunity to advance the same globalist goals of the Democrats. This being so much easier for a Rebublican since most evangelicals give anyone with a "R" after their name a free pass (think George Bush). My encouragement here is for the reader to not for a moment think the good guys/gals are the Republicans and the bad the Democrats for nothing, and I mean, nothing could be further from the truth.
In ruminating on these things and more I wonder what is the Christian response? Of course I know that we as Christians are to do good and be lights in our world which certainly does not preclude civic involvement, yet I cannot escape the words of the Lord where he says that his kingdom is not of this world. And if his kingdom is not of this world, then it follows by course that the kingdom of his followers is also not of this world. Yet for many Christians the truth be told, their kingdom is of this world and for many that kingdom is America. A nation that many wrongly ascribe to be Christian and God's New Testament apple of his eye even as Israel was for the Old.
Personally, I fear for the days ahead where violence may well come to our land with Christians facing a crossroad as to whether to pick up the sword, or turn the other check. This does not mean I am advocating that Christians do not protect their families if a criminal breaks in. No, I am talking instead about the Christian purposely employing the physical sword to battle the government. Much as was done in the Revolutionary War and the Civil War where if you study history you will find that many professed Christians took place in the shedding of blood. Blood which by fact would have involved that of their fellow Christian brothers who found themselves on the other side of the battle field! Something which per my reading of the Scriptures I cannot in any way justify or support.
Well - enough of my words, following is the intro to the Herescope article with a link to the full paper.
It is not about FREEDOM, it is about DOMINION
The NEW BREED of Christian is poised to take over the earth, precinct by precinct. God's Army is rising up. It is time to put on the militant garb. The glint in the eye becomes fixed as the exhilaration of the hour sweeps through the masses. They can make a difference! The world has been waiting with bated breath for this LAST DAY GENERATION. False prophets in their midst are caught in sin, under discipline, yet their tapes sell to believers of their false prophecies. The call for unity is the common cause bringing them from every denomination. They are calling their unity "revival." After all, when they have set up the Kingdom here on the earth - they will have fulfilled the mandate given to Adam to subdue the earth. A new sound is heard in the land. The music gets louder and the beat gets stronger (even bringing in rock, metal, and funk) but oddly enough the lyrics are always the same! - The choruses proclaiming the triumphant song of the conquerors!

Note to Herescope readers: What follows may be the most important article ever published by Discernment Ministries in its 21 year history. The first edition of the Discernment Newsletter, published in May 1990 began chronicling the activities of a group of men calling themselves “prophets” and “apostles,” claiming to have extra-biblical revelation and calling to build an elite army to take over the Earth.
