NAR… Producers of Another Jesus, Another Gospel, and Another Commission

Flirting with another Jesus and another Gospel will produce another mission or commission..  Below are some quotes form the book Invading Babylon by Lance Wallnau and Bill Johnson. Contributions were made by Che Ahn, Patricia King, Alan Vincent and C. Peter Wagner. Accents in bold are mine.

But first….some comments.

The root to another Jesus (mystical, signs and wonders, lovey dovey, cash cow, etc…,) is unbelief.

The root to another Gospel (no wrath, no punishment, no judgment, no separation between God and man, man is not that bad, etc…,)  is unbelief.  (See Father-Son Theology a Systematic Theology for the New Apostolic Reformation by Harold Eberle)

The root to another Great Commission (salt preserves culture, invades Babylon, molds minds, doesn’t worry about conversions but disciple placement, and $$$ is the missing link to effectiveness) is unbelief.

Remember how the serpent added to what God had said…in the very beginning ?

Today, men (Christian leaders) are adding to what God said.

Unbelief in the nature of redemption, in the nature of God, and in the supremacy of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is spreading.

Complicity is sin.

Bill Johnson, Lance Wallnau, Che Ahn, Patricia King, Alan Vincent, C. Peter Wagner, Jonathan Welton, Harold Eberle, Martin Trench are all complicit in spreading unbelief and adding to what God has said.

The quotes…

 

HOW DO WE TAKE OVER THE WORLD? WE MUST HAVE A STRATEGY.

As long as the Church thinks the purpose of the Great Commission is anything less than penetrating and occupying the mind molders of the nations in order to bring about a sustained influence that shapes the culture, we are asleep. The fields, our nations, are not only vulnerable to the enemy, but they are also being aggressively cultivated right under our noses.

We are salt. We slow down the decay of culture. We are also light, which means that we illuminate a pathway into a better future.

To be light to the world is to reflect the illuminating power of the coming age right in the midst of this one. It is to see the future and bring it into the present so that others can know what the coming Kingdom looks like.

God is waiting for us to access His presence, His counsel, and His insight so that we can apply Heaven’s solutions to earth and teach His ways by demonstrating solutions to problems. What Jesus demonstrated in healing human bodies is the same power that can transform nations.

The question in the minds of many who are bold enough to probe beneath the surface is: Why haven’t we seen more of the reformation that we’ve been talking about? In my personal reckoning, the season in which those of us who are charismatically inclined evangelicals began to put the Dominion Mandate front and center began in 1990, and it sharply accelerated after the turn of the century. We have been doing everything we know how to do to see our cities transformed. However, after 20 years we cannot point to a single city in America that has been reformed according to objective sociological measurements…

Reformation seems more elusive than we expected. Thoughtful people will naturally ask why. Are we doing something wrong? Is something missing? What changes do we need to make? There are certainly many answers to these questions. The particular missing piece that I want to address in this chapter is money. I repeat, money! Trust me. We will not see measureable, sustained transformation of our cities or states or nations if those who are providing strategic leadership do not have access to large sums of money.

Satan virtually had his way over the human race until Jesus came. Jesus was called the “last Adam” because, through His death and resurrection, He turned things back around (see 1 Cor. 15: 20-28, 45). He came to seek and to save that which was lost. What was lost? The dominion over creation was lost because Adam forfeited it in the Garden of Eden. Jesus brought a new Kingdom, the Kingdom of God, which was to replace the perverse kingdom that satan had established. He came to reconcile the world back to Himself, and He assigned the ministry of reconciliation to us (see 2 Cor. 5: 18). Since then, it has been the responsibility of the people of God, empowered by the Holy Spirit, to regain the dominion that Adam was originally supposed to have. This is the Dominion Mandate.

Take, for instance, Jesus’ Great Commission: “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations…” (Matt. 28: 19 NKJV). Previously many of us interpreted that to mean that we were to go into the nations in order to win as many souls as possible. Now, in light of the Dominion Mandate, we take it literally and see that we are to disciple nations as whole social units. Our task, then, is nothing less than reforming nations or people groups or social units of whatever scope. The values and blessings of God’s Kingdom must become characteristic of whole cities or states or countries. But practically speaking, part of the process of making that happen is to have large amounts of wealth available.

It is no wonder that Solomon said, “… Money answers everything” (Eccl. 10: 19). In light of this, we must take the steps necessary to see that wealth pours into the hands of Kingdom-minded and Kingdom-motivated leaders who can successfully move God’s people into sustained reformation of society. This is the will of God.

The answer to this must have to do with God’s timing. The wealth is undoubtedly there, but apparently we are not yet ready to receive it. For one thing, I believe that God was waiting for the biblical government of the Church to come into place under apostles and prophets. But this happened in 2001 when, at least according to my estimates, the Second Apostolic Age began. What more? I now think that in order for us to be able to handle the wealth responsibly, we need to recognize, identify, affirm, and encourage the ministry of apostles in the six non-religion mountains. They may or may not want to use the term “apostle,” but they will function in Kingdom-based leadership roles characterized by supernaturally empowered wisdom and authority. We have more work to do here.
