(Excerpt from the book, “AntiChrist Emerging: the surge of anti-Semitism”)
Historically, Israel has long been hated for what she is, was, and will become. That ages-old satanic spirit of hatred is surfacing again, fomenting anti-Semitism via Replacement Theology (Supercessionism). It is not only evident via Replacement Theology in liturgical dominations, but has seeped deeply into Evangelicalism. It is alarming because Replacement Theology (RT) has historically been the single most powerful provocateur of anti-Semitism.
RT posits the claim that the New Testament covenant replaces the Abrahamic covenant, and that the Church has replaced Israel as God’s chosen people. Thus, the Church is now “Israel” in the plan, purpose, and promises of God. The promises that God made to Israel are spiritualized and every mention of Israel in the New Testament after Pentecost refers to the Church. Further, RT included beliefs based primarily on the notion that the Abrahamic Covenant no longer applies that promises Israel eternal ownership of land in Canaan (Genesis 17:7-8). Thus, because the Covenant no longer applies, Israel is just as any other nation and her only hope is in the Church.
I could write about all of those manifestations of anti-Semitism, but there are numerous very well written books exposing those errors. In my research I found an anti-Semitic threat to Israel that is greater than all the others combined. In the last couple of decades a different type of anti-Semitism has manifested. It is anti-Semitism that is not easily discerned or detected, but glides silently along in a rapidly growing Movement. Obscured in the folds of Dominion Theology, this new type of anti-Semitism is thriving in the most heretical faction of Christianity, the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR).
The NAR’s potential to do harm to Israel is far greater than the threat of anti-Semitism from alleged Jewish deicide, the anti-Semitism of the Arab nations, and anti-Semitism that stems from Replacement Theology. I do not believe that traditional anti-Semitism and Replacement Theology in liturgical denominations is the major threat to Israel unless ecumenism with the Roman Catholic Church occurs. Additionally, the rise of Replacement Theology in academia and its influence on younger Christian generations is not by itself a major threat. Its primary effect on younger generations will be to soften them for NAR Dominionism and its version of Covenant Theology (not to be confused with traditional Covenant Theology). If, as some NAR leaders are suggesting, NAR infiltrates and influences Roman Catholicism, and Ecumenism occurs between the two, I will publically declare the result to be the One-World Church of the False Prophet.
In order to adequately expose Dominionist anti-Semitism in the NAR, I must first explain what it is, its goals, and its version of Replacement Theology, Covenant Theology (Dominion Covenant).
The NAR is an extremely alluring and deceptively diabolical Movement that intends to take over the world by infiltrating governments of nations and religions. Their view of Israel is radical to say the least and very dangerous at its best. NAR doctrine, as the Movement itself, is complex and loosely connected, widespread, and evolving. The reason for it evolving is because there are so many unaccountable contributors that shoot from the hip and modify it. However, I will describe how their Dominion Theology necessarily includes Replacement Theology. It will become clear that the NAR has no intention of supporting Israel as God’s Chosen People, of recognizing her unique place in eschatology, or assigning any other traditional biblical characteristic to the nation.
