The Great Commission is a TEACHING as well as PREACHING commission!
Mt 28:19-20 "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." (NAS) Teach them all I commanded you.
Did you know that Jesus gave us 50 commandments to take to the nations?
The 50 commandments of Christ will change a nation. Notice how Jesus commands us to both preach repentance and TEACH THEM TO "OBSERVE ALL THINGS THAT I COMMANDED YOU". We tend to focus on getting people saved, or born again. That is certainly the start. This however is called the "Gospel of Salvation."
The "Gospel of the Kingdom" on the other hand is the Gospel we are called to preach. It includes the call to repentance but goes much further. It reaches into the world system and threatens Satanís control over the nations. It is a teaching commission along side a preaching commission. It has been neglected too long.
To disciple a nation you need a philosophy that governs all aspects of behavior yet is flexible enough to apply to all sectors of society. What are the sectors of society the gospel must penetrate in order to disciple nations?
There are in fact seven mountains or world kingdoms that make up the matrix in which the culture of every nation exists. These mountains are also called "mind molders", because the person who controls the tops of these mountains has leverage over the minds and lives of those beneath in every other mountain. The church has a message for each of these mountains. We need to both demonstrate the power of God and recover our confidence in the practical, life changing dynamic that is unleashed when society is built on non optional universal life principles- the commandments of Christ! It is the absence of this moral foundation that explains why it is easier to liberate a country from dictatorship than it is to bring it into order and prosperity once the dictator is out of power.
Modern man, with his intolerance of the Gospel does not realize that the lessons of Albania, Afghanistan and Iraq spell clearly that nations do not prosper simply because you pour in money after changing a regime. Americaís prosperity is not entirely because of its system of Government and economics. It is built on a Judeo- Christian system of ethics and morality. Remove the foundation, and watch how quickly this nation becomes humbled economically, socially and internationally. This was the clear warning of several Founding Fathers. You cannot build a sky scrapper let alone a nation without a foundation. In fact, the greater the structure, the deeper the foundation must be. The 50 commands of Christ are more relevant today than ever before in the history of the church.
It matters not what nation you look at. Jesus teaching will bless any economy, strengthen families, and restore integrity in Governments, efficiency in public services and blessing to the thirsting souls of mankind. Jesus teaching results in caring for the poor and needy and creates a pathway out of poverty into prosperity. It will cleanse a nation of organized crime and remove drugs from the streets. We need to begin to believe in the power and practicality of the 50 commands of Christ. Here is a case in point.
In the last 10 years Uganda has been transformed by the commands of Christ. Once listed by the United Nations as the highest HIV and AIDS plagued country in Africa, Uganda has succeeded in reversing the curse. Where 29% of single woman were infected with AIDS the rate is now down below 8%. How? The Government embraced the church and worked together side by side to promote a message of abstinence to singles, faithfulness to married people and contraception as a last resort.
The government is ending economic corruption by placing born again Christians in key positions where bribes and graft once compromised trade. Having established the Church Mountain and the Family Mountain, the Government Mountain is now focusing its energy on taking the Educational and Business mountains. The commands of Christ can build a nation or change a nation in decline. Uganda is a case in point!
What are the Seven Mountains?
The seven mountains are seven spheres of influence that make up the mind molders that control Nations. He who occupies these mountains controls the harvest. As Satan gains power over these mountains he increases his capacity for "Mind Control." Thatís the spiritual force that inclines whole people groups to think along the same pathway. It is the phenomenon that explains sudden trends in fashion or music. It works to turn whole continents against each other and will be used to facilitate global wars. Mind Control will increase as the Last Days speeds toward a conclusion.
Here are the Seven Mountains or Mind Molders:
1. Spirituality and
3. Education (Harvest
Evangelism Ė "Marketplace")
World Rulers of Darkness operate through people. Their goal is to penetrate key strategic positions at the tops of the mountains, and to populate these positions with people who will become gatekeepers to their foul agendas. A small group in control of Media with a homosexual bias can put on programs that make the Gay lifestyle appealing and entertaining. This media pummeling has the effect of softening minds to the issues of morality and creates intolerance for moral absolutes regarding sexual purity and a false tolerance for perversion.
Mind Molders work together in order to accomplish the strategies of the devil. This year alone, the family (Family Mountain) has come under assault by government legislatures (Government Mountain) in the State of Massachusetts to recognize that the union of a man and a woman is a thing of the past. Men now marry men and woman marry woman. Simultaneous with this, education (another mountain) chartered a school in New York to honor those students with a homosexual preference.
Abortion and Pornography are coming through this same gate at a rate that is barely keeping up with the number of marriages falling apart and the number of men and youth who are becoming addicted to sex on the internet.
The same strategy to leverage the power of mind molders is now being worked out by the spirit of Anti Christ in Europe. "Anti" means against or "instead of" - and "Christ" means "anointing". Therefore it is the name of a spirit that opposes Christians and seeks an alternative anointing. The World Ruler of Islam has so successfully joined with the spirit of Anti Christ in Europe that America is now the most hated country and George Bush in particular is now the number one most hated leader in Europe.
This, less than one generation after young Americans spilled blood to liberate our friends from the tyranny of Hitlerís war machine. How can this happen? Again, itís called end time mind control. The manipulation and infection of the hearts and minds of people in mass through the mind molders. By the way, what is the number one thing Europeans most dislike about the President? His piety, they don't like the fact that he is a praying Christian!
Remember, Anti Christ is anti anointing. Europeans aren't against all prayer. They don't mind Muslims praying three times a day toward Mecca. This explains why a land where churches once dominated the landscape is now laced with golden domed Mosques dotting the horizon. This and the sudden rise of the European economy as their currency surpasses the U.S. dollar make all those who are afraid of being "Left Behind" nervous. But God has a plan- "Go into the entire world, all its systems, its mind molders and its Nations and infiltrate the world with My power and teaching. Donít run and donít hide.
Go through the door of globalization- world economics- and while it is yet day, while opportunity exists, penetrate these nations and systems with a demonstration of a belief system that has superior power and results. This is what Daniel did in Babylon and what Joseph did in Egypt. This is a large part of the reason why God is blowing on the marketplace message in this hour. This is a day where third world nations are asking for help, and developing nations are seeking to trade. The window is wide open to the church to impact the world. Opportunity is everywhere.
The anointing and the spirit of wisdom will give you access to people and places that will be altered by the covert and overt application of these commands. Thatís right- you can be covert! One friend of mine is transforming entire schools and businesses by applying certain key commandments to his clientís lives and systems. They are not even aware of the degree to which their organizations are being aligned with the teachings of Christ. All they know is that itís working. In schools the students are getting better grades and discipline problems are on the decline. In business the people are starting to work like real teams and treating each other with respect. Companies are prospering. It works!
The 50 Commandments of Christ are the key to transforming your home, community and business. Memorize them. Meditate upon them. Ask the Holy Spirit for illumination on how to apply them to your life. Expect God to put His divine favor upon you. Favor takes you to the top of the mountains. Be full of the Holy Spirit and you will break the power of Mind Control off of every system you invade.
Here are the 50 commands of Christ:
