Who has authority on earth according to dominionists and the Bible?

The Reclaim the 7 Mountain website, as part of describing the dominion process, makes the statement, “Under man’s authority, the earth would be blessed because he was blessed.” But the problem with this is the assumption that God has given His authority to mankind. This ignores what Scripture says in Matthew 28:18,

18And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.”

Since Jesus has all authority, why do these folks claim man has it?

We also see in John 18:36 that the kingdom is not of this world,

36Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, then My servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews; but as it is, My kingdom is not of this realm.”

This begs the question, why strive to establish a kingdom here on earth, when Christ’s kingdom is not of this world?
