To fully grasp all the reasons the New Apostolic Reformation is such a dangerous movement and why discernment bloggers incessantly warn about this cult I’m going to take an excerpt from a piece I wrote a few years ago entitled “Dominionists are on the move…and they mean business.” I began with a quote from NAR’s Grand Poohbah, C. Peter Wagner:
Once we have the apostles in place, we will then bring the intercessors and the prophets into the inner circle, and we will end up with the spiritual core we need to move ahead for retaking the dominion that is rightfully ours.
Wagner was speaking of modern-day apostles and prophets. What did he mean by taking dominion that is rightly ours? I’ll reveal his plans in a moment.
But first, I must urge readers to take Wagner and other NAR/word-faith wolves seriously. Moreover, it is imperative that Bible believers fully understand the inner workings of the NAR in order to, “recognize them by their [rotten] fruit.” (Mat. 7:16)
Listen to the words of Charles Spurgeon:
If you wish to know God, you must know His Word. If you wish to perceive His power, you must see how He works by His Word. If you wish to know His purpose, before it comes to pass, you can only discover it by His Word. (H/T Bud Ahlheim)
Lastly, while reading this, keep in mind that many NARwolves have been appointed to Donald Trump’s Christian Advisory Board along with several Southern Baptist luminaries.
Dominionists are on the move…and they mean business (2011)
The NAR has a plan and a purpose. They believe that they have a mandate from God to restore the office of Apostles and Prophets and advance the Kingdom of God. According to Albert James Dager “dominion theology is predicated upon three basic beliefs: 1) Satan usurped man’s dominion over the earth through the temptation of Adam and Eve; 2) The Church is God’s instrument to take dominion back from Satan; 3) Jesus cannot or will not return until the Church has taken dominion by gaining control of the earth’s governmental and social institutions.

So – the NAR/dominionist’s goal is to transform society into the kingdom of God on earth. How? By controlling various aspects of society. The term they use is the “Seven Mountains,” or “Seven Spheres” of society. The Seven Mountains are: 1) Arts and Entertainment; 2) Business/Economy; 3) Education; 4) Family; 5) Government; 6) Media; 7) Religion. The NAR holds that as they accomplish ridding the world of evil, things will get better and better and then Jesus Christ will return to set up His kingdom.
