Taking Dominion, Part 1

by Pastor Mark Downey
This subject really opens a Pandora's Box of so many other related topics like the Kingdom, God's Law, prophecy, history and biblical exegesis or interpretation of scriptures. There is much debate as to the level of applying dominion: racially, culturally, geographically, individually, nationally, etc. Much of the confusion comes from a loose evolving confederation of religious movements such as Dominion Theology, Reconstructionists, Kingdom Now and others, in contrast to what I would call anti-dominionists, all of which call themselves Christians and together form the perfect dialectic. Who do you suppose profits from the thesis and antithesis? Well, probably those who aren't Christian and presently have dominion. I heard just recently that the UN passed a resolution prohibiting any exploration or salvage of underwater cities and sunken ships to protect the history of the world. I didn't know anyone owned the oceans, but history is kind of a weird thing, because it's written according to the spoils of war. Do you think there may be some archaeological finds that may be politically incorrect? In this message I want to show you 'how to' take dominion. In the previous message, the discussion was on how other people control our lives through "The Witchcraft of Mind Control".
On the surface, it seems that most people desire self control and self government, rather than somebody legislating you to buckle your seat belt. Biblical dominion is the lightest of yokes and yet, the least desired. In the past, I've talked about the exoteric and esoteric things of slavery and freedom, and so the logical follow up is understanding the mandate to take dominion.
From the very beginning, God purposed His Adamic race to be a dominion people (Genesis 1:28). This was an expansion program: God put us in charge of production and to have dominion over it, to rule it, to make this an orderly planet. Dominion means supreme authority. The prefix or suffix 'dom' denotes property and jurisdiction; a realm of judgment, hence the occupation of those exercising such a condition or quality, as in kingdom, freedom, wisdom, Christendom. I had always assumed the phrase 'being good stewards of the land' was in the Bible, until I tried to find it. It's not there because we're more than just hired hands or managers. We are as I Cor. 4:1 puts it, 'Stewards of the mysteries of God'.
Let's study Psalms 8:1-9. Psalms 8:1 says, "Oh LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens." His repute among all governments, and we'll see what His name is. Verse 2: "Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger." We have this strength from childhood/infancy to turn back rebellion against God. Verse 3: "When I consider thy heavens, the work thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou has ordained." When you look at the sky, how can you NOT think of God? Verses 4-6: “What is man, that thou are mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honor. Thou made him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet." The context here is racial and Adamic, rather than the deity of Christ just being divine; the psalmist wonders about that which the first man lost and how the son of man, Adam's Son, Jesus Christ, more than regained. Regained what? Well, the dominion over the 6 things mentioned in verses 7-8: "All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beast of the field; the fowl of the air and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas." And then in verse 9 we read, "Oh LORD, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!" You would think that if it's talking about God's name here, it would be named. However, the context is authority, not a name per se (see the article "The Name Game"). The messianic nature of this psalm is repeated in Hebrews 2:6-8 and in verse 11, we read "Both He that purifies and they who are purified are all of One; which is the reason why He is not ashamed to call them brethren.” Continuing in verse 16, "Indeed He does not give help to angels-messengers, instead He gives help to the seed of Abraham. Therefore, He had to be made like His brethren, in all things, that He might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people." If we read this in conjunction with Romans 8:17-21, the "many sons" (of Hebrews 2:10) whom He is bringing to glory are "joint heirs with Christ" (Romans 8:17) in both the royal right of Psalms 2 being 'kings and judges of the earth' and the racial right of Hebrews 2. As we read the last part of verse 8 of Hebrews 2, "But now we do not yet see all things subjected to Him." Maybe that's why the whole creation groans and travails in pain for the manifestation of the sons of God.
The question is not 'men and brothers what are we going to do?'; the question is WHEN are we going to do it? WHEN are we going to take dominion? It would behoove us to read Psalms 2 for some direction. How do we take dominion? By subjecting ourselves to the Lord. We are His subjects. We subordinate or submit ourselves to the sovereignty or authority or dominion (as Daniel 7:14 calls it, an everlasting dominion). By serving the Lord with fear, we partake of His reign. "Bring hither mine enemies . . . and slay them before me" (Luke 19:27). As Romans 13:2 puts it, “Those who resist the authority of God . . . will receive judgment." They will not be operating or living within the government of Christ, of which "there is no power except from God".
So, in essence, there may be dominions of darkness, but they are fraudulent. Our founding fathers would accept no such nonsense, because they understood illegitimate domination. They could not declare their independence without mention of their dependence upon, indeed, "a firm reliance on the protection of divine providence" . . . "appealing to the supreme judge of the world." The dominion that we take to be our own is the law and order of Jesus Christ, summed up in Romans 13:8 this way, "Owe no one anything, except to love one another, for this is the fulfilling of the law" and then goes on to mention 'you shall not mongrelize, murder, steal, lie or lust" from the Ten Commandments of the Old Testament.
Legitimate Christian dominion is not anarchy. The Law of God to be exercised and executed has a natural pecking order; authorities of the supreme authority, as David assembled all the princes of Israel in I Chron. 28:1: "The princes of the tribes, and the captains of the companies that minister to the king by course, and the captains over the 1000's and captains over 100's, and the stewards over all the substance and possession of the king and of his sons with the officers and with the mighty men and with all the valiant men." So you can see we have various heads responsible for particular categories, all for the same reason: accountability. Whenever this mechanism is tampered with, we will always witness the line between freedom and slavery obfuscated with the fraudulent dominion of darkness. If our people don't want to be White Supremacists according to Deut. 7:6, being a holy people, whom the Lord hath chosen to be special . . . above all people (races) that are upon the face of the earth, then the jews and niggers shall be the head and thou shalt be the tail. And we can wag our tails while they wag the whole dog.
Well, here's a dominion scripture: "And the Lord shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt not be beneath; it thou hearken unto the commandments of the Lord thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them" (Deut. 28:13). Isaiah 9:13-16 explains further: "For the people turneth not unto him that smiteth them, neither do they seek the Lord of hosts, therefore the Lord will cut off from Israel head and tail, branch and rush, in one day. The ancient and honorable, he is the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he is the tail. For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed." It's not the kind of dominion that I seek to serve. "For he that is called in the Lord, being a servant, is the Lord's freeman: likewise also he that is called, being free, is Christ's servant. Ye are bought with a price, be ye not the servants of man" (I Cor. 7:22-23).
Christian dominion of the earth is the primary focus of the Church of Jesus Christ in every generation. However, too many of our people have heard the wrong calling in a quick exit from the earth in a secret rapture and so there is no dominion to take. Let me tell you something. We will be saved IN tribulation, not OUT of it. We must constantly return to God's agenda, which remains Genesis 1:28. How much time we have left is not the issue. What's important is that every day we move forward with this construction project in the image and for the glory of God. We must never retreat in developing a racial consciousness in the body of Christ. We must be vigilant in separating ourselves from anything that doesn't fit into our dominion. Every Aryan nation of Israel faces the same problems of non White third world aliens swarming into our countries with the strange gods and diseases, thanks to the rampant political corruption of race traitors sinking on a titanic economy, whose only recourse is to go for broke in a New World Order in which their dominion is entirely satanic and perverted. We must offer hope to our kinsmen who have resigned their tails between their legs thinking they're going to float off into heaven, or outer space, or Valhalla, or Dante's inferno or the local McDonalds. That blessed hope and assurance is that God doesn't want His people ruled over by that generation of vipers forever. But it is the people who have turned away from God and are murmuring just like in the days of Moses and going along with the golden calf of 'Homeland Security'.
How come II Chron. 7:14 isn't working? How many people does it take for it to kick in? Well, I believe it IS working. It is just a matter of patience to realize that the dominion of light is running simultaneously and concurrently with the dominion of darkness. There's just no communion between the two, and ultimately there will only be one left. With the prophetic increase in knowledge here and now, I'm convinced that the proponents of Christian Identity will be the victors of the final dominion, and that God's plan for restoring paradise will be the only reality that remains. Taking dominion is all about winners and losers.
In my preparation for this subject, I came across a lot of theology, lot's of good intentions and some bad. Many religious movements may have the intent to overcome evil with good, but their political motivations fall short of the political glory of God. They may start with a spiritual truth, but their momentum becomes impeded with half truths and lies. I don't think it takes much evil to spoil the good, just a little leaven. That's why it is imperative for us to consider and rightly divide every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. It's our defense against any and all spoilers.
A book that plays into the dialectic of neutralizing Christian dominion is called "Vengeance is Ours: the Church in Dominion" by Al Dager, in which he gives this synopsis: "A new militancy is stirring in the breasts of Christians in the response to the evils that beset society. Tens of thousands attend spiritual warfare seminars hoping to learn how to take back from Satan what he has stolen. A call for vengeance on God's enemies and a restructuring of society under God's Law is being heard in ever-widening circles. But is it the Christian's responsibility to take control of society and to reconstruct it in accordance with God's Law? This book presents some startling revelations in this analysis of various forms of Dominion Theology from the 'Manifested Sons of God' to 'Christian Reconstructionism'. "
The subtle sarcasm of a militant church standing up to a personified Satan, exonerates the real adversaries of Christ and mocks the very idea of repentance and seeking the Kingdom, i.e., change in government. What's wrong with God's Law? Well, nothing. Unless we're told that the wrong things are law. Throughout the history of our race, we have struggled against the edicts of man being the law of the land, and we pay a very dear price for it. Earlier I mentioned Romans 8:19, not knowing there was a splinter group from the Latter Rain Movement of the last century called the Manifested Sons of God. Their problem is that they took dominion to the extreme realm of declaring themselves Christ, which is a typical recurrent theme that boils down to secular humanism; the deification of man, the mystery of iniquity . . . so who needs God?
The Manifested Sons of God were associated with pentecostalism and the Assemblies of God, which seemed to easily slip away from reality down the slippery slope of charismatic insanity, having nothing to do with taking dominion. On the other hand, there are stoic conservative Calvinists called 'Reconstructionists' who calculate that it's going to take about a thousand years to get things back on track; that is, if our enemies are nice and cooperate. One of their leading voices crying wolf is Gary North, who predicted doom and gloom for Y2K. He now qualifies as a bonafide false prophet, but like so many other pied pipers, enjoys a loyal following of lemmings. People like this give not only dominion a bad name, but Christianity as well. Al Dager continues with his half-baked teachings in another book called "The World Christian Movement", saying 'A great delusion leading to the religio-political state of the antichrist'. Do you think he's talking about jews? In his synopsis of this book he says, "The gospel of Jesus Christ is being compromised as we learn that it is no longer proper to preach Jesus Christ as the only Way to God unless done so within the context of the world's pagan religions." Do you think he considers judaism pagan? Of course not! "God has already spoken through Buddha, Mohammed, Confucius and other religious holy men." Do you think he's referring to rabbis? "Major voices in Christianity are sounding this siren song of compromise and denial of Jesus Christ." Do you think he means Judeo Christianity? "Will you recognize the deception when you encounter it in your church?" Do you think he recognizes the Pax Judaica, jewry's dominion of the world? And finally, he has the chutzpah to say, "this book offers the only warning available on this most important subject." Al Dager is typical of a nice, good-intentioned, but delusional guy warning people of something coming down the pike, when it's already been here for decades.
The antichrists have dominion over all kinds of things, and the closest the Dominion Theology guys can get to their dream, is Pat Robertson's Christian Coalition. The so-called Christian Right in politics is always blasted by the liberal left with cheap shots of guilt by association. As the motto of the secular Heritage Foundation puts it, 'ideas have consequences. ' Any thought of Christian dominion is portrayed as an aberration of democracy and the two-party system. Conspiracy theorists are treated like wackos and nutcases. While our enemies demonize the lunatic fringe, the potential for Dominion Theology's unity is cleverly sabotaged. Calling for an Old Testament style theocracy, imposing God's Law would be a blood bath. We're looking at very messy logistics with, say, one million queers in this country. But capital punishment has got to be part of taking dominion, unless we can convince all the adversaries of Jesus Christ to go jump in a lake.
King Boy George got elected, probably by votescam, but he got the support of the Christian wing of the Republican party and now the betrayal is rearing its ugly head. The conflict is between the politics of compromise and the absolutes of God's Word. Is the witch(craft) free to live? With American society becoming more pluralistic, the political debate gradually determined policy on social issues. They pushed our Aryan culture in all manner of ungodly directions, with a penchant for tolerance and non violence. Of course, this led to divisions within the common denominator of wanting to take over all spheres of society, including government, education, commerce and even the arts. It was fierce loyalty to the wide spectrum of denominations rather than a united trust in God. It doesn't take much evil to spoil the good.
So, we have this raging debate among the many factions over the philosophy of dominion. Is it pre-millenialism or post-millenialism or amillenialism to initiate the return of Christ and the establishment of the Kingdom of Heaven OR is it earth and did Christ already return? It's a real quagmire . . . that delights the New World Order, especially when you add to the mix doctrines of salvation, immortality, the resurrection, etc. Millions are getting high on these charismatic crusades and are not going to sit still for boring evangelical lectures on predestination. Why are the charismatics so successful at failing to take dominion? Because they cling to the egalitarian leaven of multicultural politics. Where in the Bible does it say that Israel is to share their ruling with God with other races?
Ideas also have causes. What is the effect of cooperating with non Whites and non Christians in government? "If thou hast stricken thy hand with a stranger (racial alien), thou art snared" (Prov. 6:1). We are snared with some 40 million commie trained aliens in America, because of traitors and wickedness in high places shaking hands with the enemies of God. American soldiers wear boots made in China. "Ye shall make no league (treaties/agreements) with the inhabitants of this land, ye shall throw down their altars" (Judges 2:2).
The apostate 501c3 church has been emasculated and cursed: "The Lord shall smite thee with madness and blindness and astonishment of heart" (Deut. 28:28). There was a guy in this area several years ago who tried to start a Christian Israel church and had this nifty canvas banner made that said 'Jesus is Lord' and yet he wouldn't touch the zealot radicals of Christian Identity or give one iota of support to political activism. His sign was meaningless and empty of dominion thinking. These people just want to PTL and let Jesus do it all. There's nothing wrong with praise; it just doesn't stop there. "Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two edged sword in their hand (a literal weapon) to execute vengeance upon the heathen (the other races) and punishments upon the people (the race traitors and antichrists) to bind their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron; to execute upon them the judgment written, this honor have all the saints" (Ps. 149:6-9).
What was the name of that book, 'Vengeance is Ours'? Yes, I know that God said 'vengeance is mine' in Romans 12:19, but the context is about personal relationships, not taking dominion over the enemies of God as spoken of in II Cor. 10:4-6: "For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalted itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled." In verse 4a, our literal guns are not secular in ussage, but in verse 4b, God gives us the power to destroy enemy territory. Verse 5a is demolishing the ungodly pride that contradicts the Word and verse 5b makes our thinking in accord with Christ, so that as disciples and soldiers of Christ, we have the discipline to take dominion. In verse 6a, we are prepared to purge all Judeo inspired mutinies within the body of Christ. Verse 6b is when our discipline to execute God's Law is perfected.
As bad as things are in the world today, it is only by the grace of God that America doesn't go up in smoke entirely. And even if it did, we should reckon it all in joy, just as the coming of Christ destroyed Jerusalem in 70 AD. There will be a rapture for Hal Lindsey and Benny Hinn and all the disciples of Baal; but for those lone voices crying in the wilderness against all the murmerers and doom 'n gloomers and soothsayers, for that remnant of Christian Identity, we have that blessed message and mission for racial salvation to take dominion. For it is written, "The upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it. But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it" (Prov. 2:21-22).
I realize that this is a condensed version of 'Taking Dominion', but it is my prayer that this message instills the hope of divine promises in you, no matter what happens in these trying times. Each of us will contribute to the holy mandate, which our Lord and Savior determines.
