The Call, D.C. Plus 

Ed Decker's SaintsAlive > http://www.saintsalive.org/links.html> now promotes Extreme Youth Ministries and Generation Jesus, a "radical Youth ministry. . .associated with the City Church. ["Are you interested in seeing youth revival like never before seen? This ministry is leading the way."] 

The City Church Movement believes in ONE church for a city. Ed Decker's newsletter recently announced that he had joined the WA City Church and had been invited to move his offices into their facility. Decker's web site is hotlinked to the Seattle, WA City Church. 

The City Church Questions on Revival > http://www.thecity.org/revival/revival.htm> recommends the Toronto Revival, Rodney-Howard Brown, Brownesville Revival, Bill Bright, Promise Keepers and the Spiritual Warfare Prayer Network of Cindy Jacobs, C. Peter Wagner etc.  The City Church "History" section gives evidence Pastor Wendell Smith's mentoring relationship with the very New Age Dick Iverson and heretical Nazarene orientation.  The "Dragon Slayer" New Generation is a reference to the Masonic vow to destroy Christianity and establish the Esoteric Church. 

"The church was an outreach of Bible Temple in Portland, Oregon under the apostolic oversight of Pastor Dick Iverson. Wendell and Gini Smith were on staff at Bible Temple for twenty years as Youth Pastors and associates. They were also involved in international ministry as speakers, authors and ministers. Pastor Wendell became well known for the 'Dragon Slayer' New Generation youth seminars held across America. Pastor Wendell graduated in 1972 from Northwest Nazarene College."

Dick Iverson who founded the Portland Bible Temple was also mentor to Che Ahn, who pastors the Pasadena Vineyard Church which is now renamed Harvest Rock Church and is located on the campus of the US Center for World Missions.  About two years ago a researcher visited the USCWM campus and noticed a flyer advertising John Arnott's up coming visit to the Harvest Rock Church.

UPDATE: See: Brownsville & Prophecy on their recent views on Youth, tattooing and signs and wonders.

THE CALL, D.C. also came out of the U.S. Center for World Missions and their Harvest Rock Church. The Call, D.C. was for a huge gathering of fasting youth [ages 14-24] to converge on the Washington Mall on September 2, 2000.  Signups for The Call, D.C. were encouraged at the March for Jesus [June 10, 2000], also called "Jesus Day". Opportunity was also given to commit to sign the Call to Renewal's "Covenant to Overcome Poverty" as a part of the follow up to Jesus Day. > http://www.thecallDC.com/underground/index.html 

SEE: The CallDC Leadership

"[Paul Cedar's] Mission America is developing the 'care' aspect of the Prayer-Care-Share lighthouse lifestyle through Jesus Day.  The goal is 10,0000 Lighthouse Churches who will commit to launching Lighthouses of Prayer. . . Over 100 nations around the world are expected to participate in Jesus Day on June 10, 2000, encompassing every time zone.  A prayer script will unite participants around the world in praying the same prayers.  During each rally participants will kneel as part of a united worldwide symbolic act of humility and worship. . .

 "Jesus Day comes at just the time when registration [for Sept. 2 THE CALL, D.C.] will be critical.  Signups for youth and parents will be facilitated on Jesus Day." [March for Jesus, Jesus Day Leadership Update, 3/7/2000]

Che Ahn is Harvest Rock Church >http://www.harvestrockchurch.org/ >senior pastor and HRC's affiliated Harvest International Ministries or HIM. HRC was formerly known as Vineyard Christian Fellowship of Greater Pasadena and Lou and Therese Engle were the Associate Pastors.

THE CALL, D.C. website is "a repository for propaganda to support a national youth revolution against the status quo."

"Could another Jesus Movement happen today?

God's summons is out. Multitudes have heard The Call to assemble in Washington, DC to fast and pray. I'm taking back my land. Now that's revolutionary.

 BOOKMARK THIS PAGE AND RETURN EVERY WEEK -- This area of the web site will be a repository for propaganda to support a national youth revolution against the status quo. There will be testimonies, video, audio, posters, book and article reprints that will be an inspiration to GO TO DC and start another Jesus Movement. http://www.thecallDC.com/underground/index.html

 http://www.thecalldc.com/index_main.html

 Throughout the scriptures, in times of great crisis, God called for huge gatherings of fasting, repentance and covenant renewal. We either believe it or we don't. Joel's trumpet is sounding THE CALL once more, "Declare a holy fast. CALL a sacred assembly. Bring together the elders. Gather the children… and let them cry 'spare thy people oh God" … And AFTERWARDS, I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh...and all who call on the Lord will be saved." The universal fast precedes the universal outpouring!

God is summoning the holy youth of America to appear before Him. GO TO DC to fast, pray, reconcile and then be sent out to change the world through a massive youth revolution.

The Call DC is a massive gathering of Extreme Youth who are willing to fast and pray to create a violent spiritual shift in the destiny of America. Truly Revolutionary. [Revolution: when people make personal sacrifices for a cause -- everything else is just a campaign.]

We have another definition of Revolution - "a complete, often violent overthrow of an established government or political system..." (Dictionary of Canadian English). Consider that the purpose of a religious "revolution" is to overthrow the established truth.

1 John 2:13-17

I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father.
I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

Following The Call, D.C. was Live the Call.>http://www.livethecall.com/ ,  the official follow-up organization for *The Call, D.C.*, the September 2000 event. It launched The Elijah Revolution, which is the vehicle for the false latter rain doctrine mobilizing Christian youth as Joel's Army.  The Call Revolution website >http://thecallrevolution.com/thecall/> lists all the calendar events that The Call has initiated or those that are upcoming. 

The logo of Live the Call. is > http://www.livethecall.com/:

If one compares the Logo to information found in the article "Christian Occult Symbols", we read the following:

"...Dr Cathy Burns reveals that the symbol, which Dr. Yonngi Cho uses for his Logo, is the occult triskele.

Fig1. Cho's Logo

“I think it is interesting to note that Paul (David) Yonggi Cho, a former Buddhist who is now supposedly a Christian, is pastor of the world's largest church with about 800,000 members. His church in Seoul, Korea, the Yoido Full Gospel Church, belongs to the Assemblies of God conference. The logo he uses is the triskele …As a former Buddhist, I'm fairly sure he would be quite aware of the symbol he is using."  4   

From ‘Masonic and Occult Symbols Illustrated’ are these examples of the triskele.  

Figure 2 Triskele    

 Figure 3  Triskele 

This triskele symbol in Fig. 4 ."is used to exorcise evil spirits.” It is strikingly similar to Fig. 2 and also the Logo found on the New King James Bible, published by Thomas Nelson Publishers (TAN). Thomas A. Nelson is a devout Catholic.   

Figure 4 Triskele

Figure 5 Logo of New King James Bible (TAN) 5.

Triskeles are of pagan and occult origins and are connected to swastikas, reincarnation, magic and the yin-yang.

  “…the triskele (or triskelion) is one symbol that appears in many logos today… "The triskelion (Greek for three legs) is a symbol of the sun intended to express motion. A similar device, with four legs, called a tetraskelion, is a modification of the swastika” 1 Like the swastika, it is considered to be a good luck symbol.2 "

“…An occult organization sells a triskelion and serpent pendant. They brag: "Double magic! Designs on both side (sic) of this unusually attractive pendant. One side bears the three-legged triskeles symbolizing rising, zenith, setting. On the other [side the] serpent portrays strength, divine power, infinite wisdom, eternity."3 Another catalog tells us that the "'legs' represent birth, death, and rebirth."4 Of course, this is a reference to REINCARNATION.

“We must remember that since the triskele is "a Celtic version of the Yin-Yang symbol of life,"5 and a modification of the swastika,6 …” .... 6

The latest Call was The Call -- Kansas City">http://www.thecallkc.com, which took place Dec 28-31, with the next major event in California on February 22, 2003., which calls for a 40 day fast. The result of 20,000 youth descending on Kansas City was to enter into a "marriage ceremony." 

People of all ages were prayed for under a prayer shawl, and "embarked on a marriage covenant with the Bridegroom of Heaven.." A report on CBN relates:

"...From noon until midnight they danced and sang, fasted and prayed, and got ready to get married to Jesus.

All of the previous Calls, in Washington, D.C., Boston, and New York, were about prayer and repentance and turning the nation back to God. But the heart of "The Call, Kansas City" is really about the church returning to its first love, Jesus Christ, and seeing him as the Bridegroom.

"There's going to be a wedding and God is raising up friends of the Bridegroom to prepare the church, there's going to be a wedding!" said Mike Bickle, director of the International House of Prayer.

....during a 40-day fast, Call founder Lou Engle had a vision, in which the Lord showed him that "The Call, Kansas City" was, spiritually speaking, the most important Call of all.

Engle said, "I saw each of the Calls, there are seven in all, I saw each of them as a perfect beautiful pearl, but when brought together became a string of pearls that would adorn the Bride of Christ in this nation. The Call I didn't see, and the Lord showed me on this string of pearls, was this one. He said, this is the pearl of great price, it's the center pearl of the Bride's necklace, and it was The Call in Kansas City — ‘Come to the heartland and get married to Jesus, return to covenantal fidelity. America, return to your first love.’"

...Mike Bickle is from the International House of Prayer in Kansas City, where for three and a half years, a team of prophetic singers, intercessors and others have held 24-hour-a-day praise and worship focusing on Jesus as the bridegroom...."

See: The Call’ in Kansas City: A Marriage Covenant with Jesus >http://www.cbn.com/CBNNews/News/030106a.asp

One isn't called to the marriage ceremony of Christ, until the Bridegroom calls us to heaven. 

Revelation 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.
8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.
9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

The Call Revolution, the extension of The Call, also has The Call School.com.  >http://www.thecallschool.com/

"...A revolution in learning begins September 11th, 2002, at the home of The Call Revolution and Harvest Rock Church, on the historic campus of William Carey International University, in Pasadena, CA.."

Harvest Rock Church was birthed in 1994 through a prayer meeting in Pastor Che and Sue Ahn’s living room. In 1995, during the Renewal, three other churches joined forces to form what is now called Harvest Rock Church. Our purpose is to reach Los Angeles through the power of the Holy Spirit and to build a home church where believers can find nurture, direction, and fulfillment of their destinies.

Insight: Intensive Study of Global History and Theology
An in-depth study of God's plan for the world and how to take the next step.
A new initiative of the U.S. Center for World Mission, the Insight program builds on the success of the Perspectives on the World Christian Movement. This is to see mission agencies enlisting high school grads into the one-year "Global Year of Insight" which gives foundational global and cultural concerns, and a grounding in biblical faith. General Education credits, transferrable to secular or Christian schools, will be granted for these studies.

Wagner Leadership Institute is Peter Wagner's brainchild, as revealed in the article Fuller & New Evangelicalism. Wagner and also U.S. Center for World Mission, whose leadership falls under Ralph Winter, are very connected to Latter Rain and Joel's Army theology and leadership.

C. Peter Wagner (B. 1930).  He is known as a missions strategist and heads the Department for Church Growth at Fuller Theological Seminary since 1971. All strategies and methodologies for the AD2000 & Beyond, for which he was a coordinator,  and the Lausanne Consultations were developed at Fuller Theological Seminary beginning in the 1930s and are spearheaded by Peter. Wagner co-authored MC510 Signs and Wonders with John Wimber and took the course globally to every continent. He and John were the implementers of the 'restoration' of the missing "holy spirit" and reintroduction if the 'gifts and mission' to the church. According to various sources, the Post-denominational Church Movement and Ad2000 United Prayer Tract Spiritual Warfare movement, which were spearheaded by C. Peter Wagner, included co-leaders such as Francis Frangipane (co-pastor with Reuven Doron - who works under direct authority of Latter Rain leader, James Watt), Ed Silvoso, Ted Haggard, Cindy Jacobs, James Morroco, John Dawson, Esther Ilnisky, Larry Stockstill, Larry Lea and many others.

Peter's memberships include: Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization (1974-1989); American Society of Missiology; Society for Scientific Study of Religion; Association of Professors of Mission; Evangelical Missiological Society; American Society for Church Growth (founding president); and the American Lausanne Committee. See our articles EJECT:Part 1;& Dark Angels, etc. for further on C. Peter Wagner and his influence.

2 Corinthians 11: 3 "But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the
simplicity that is in Christ."

Global Harvest Ministries: "Since prayer is the precursor to every great move of God, a fully equipped nerve center with data and information about prayer needs throughout the world enable intercessors to pray intelligently. Global Harvest Ministries networks prayer ministries, denominations, churches and cell groups for this purpose. This creates a united prayer front that opposes Satan's attempt to divide and isolate believers, and blind so many to the Gospel of Jesus Christ." http://www.globalharvestministries.org/index_flash.phtml 

Divisions of Global Harvest Ministries

"To affect spiritual breakthroughs this decade, it is essential to provide timely information for prayer to the Body of Christ. The Research and Strategic Communications Division manages this function through research, strategic prayer processing, and mobilization.

"Through the Observatory Research Center, spiritually relevant information and strategic prayer points are collected and communicated to the church worldwide. Two other ways to connect for prayer are through our bi-monthly newsletter; the Global Prayer News and our email prayer update the Prayer News Alert. http://www.globalharvest.org/observatory

"Spiritual Mapping - George Otis, Jr. "Otis has taken a strategic leadership position in conceptualizing and designing research methodologies for spiritual mapping. He directs the spiritual mapping Division of the United Prayer Track."

Note: George Otis' Sentinel Group >http://www.sentinelgroup.org/, was founded in 1990, an was an extension of Otis' earlier work with the Lausanne Committee for World Evangelism, which was launched by Billy Graham. Staff are a "balance" between evangelicals and charismatics, but describe themselves as 'conservative charismatic." 

Sentinel researchers recorded supposed spiritually transformed communities and in 1999 released a video documentary called Transformations, >http://www.sentinelgroup.org/resources/itempg.cfm?itemid=11 "Imagine a community where 92 percent of the population is born-again; where city jails have been closed for lack of crime; where agricultural productivity has reached biblical proportions...Journey with host George Otis, Jr. to transformed communities on three continents. Learn how the power of prayer can deliver similar results in your own neighborhood ." [sentinel>http://www.sentinelgroup.org/WAW3.html

Sentinels ministry involves showing intercessors how to deal with the "spiritual pathology" of their community. "If there is an obstruction to God's power and presence...the secular world refers to this process of discovery as either cultural geography or epidemiological surveillance...we prefer to call the discipline "spiritual mapping."[city changers >http://www.sentinelgroup.org/WAW4.html

Sentinel partners with many including Pray! Magazine,  CitiReach International, the World Prayer Center and is involved with the United Prayer Track of the AD 2000 and Beyond Movement, the U.S. Spiritual Warfare Network and the Wagner Leadership Institute. [Connections >http://www.sentinelgroup.org/WAW5.html

Transformations II is a conference video presentation on city transformation which is billed as a sweeping revival that transforms whole cities for Christ. However, there is no proof that any of the 'transformations' have taken place. Rather, ungodly living goes on.

"Strategic Prayer is our connection with the global community of prayer..." http://www.globalharvestministries.org/home.qry?ID=143

"The mobilization element of Global Harvest Ministries is called the Eagles of God. This ministry function is a joint effort of various internal and external ministries.

The Spiritual Warfare Network (SWN)  NOW -- Strategic Prayer Network---Called "Gideons Army," 

"...it emerged from the Lausanne II Congress in Manila in 1989. The first international meeting, Gideon's Army, was held at the Kwang Lim Prayer Mountain in Korea in 1993 by invitation only. Three hundred attended...The second international meeting, the World Congress on Intercession, Spiritual Warfare and Evangelism, was held in Oct. 1998 in Guatemala City (hosted by Harold Caballeros and the El Shaddai Church)....The third gathering of the Spiritual Warfare Network occurred in October 1999 in Selcük, Turkey.  Known as Celebration Ephesus, the third assembly was also the culminating event for the role of Global Harvest Ministries in the 10/40 Window. Shortly after Celebration Ephesus our ministry received from the Lord the direction of our next prayer assignment-the 40/70 Window [http://www.globalharvestministries.org/home.qry?ID=204] ....Global Harvest Ministries is hosting Gideon's Army II [http://www.globalharvestministries.org/home.qry?ID=205] .  The October 2001 event will be held in Hannover, Germany. Gideon's Army II is the forth international gathering of the Spiritual Warfare Network-which has recently been renamed the Strategic Prayer Network....

“SWN is an important section of the US Prayer Track specializing in intercession specifically directed to weaken the territorial spirits or principalities and powers which obstruct the spread of the Gospel.” 

Gideons Army II >http://www.globalharvestministries.org/home.qry?ID=205---"...The month of October has now taken its place as the main month of prayer for the modern global prayer movement. Our Praying Through the Window initiatives took place in October 1993, 1995, 1997, and 1999. They all targeted the 10/40 Window. Now our first entire month of prayer for the 40/70 Window will fall right in sequence, namely October 2001.

Peter Wagner began serving as the Coordinator of the AD2000 United Prayer Track in 1991. AD2000 International Office in Colorado Springs closed on 31 March 2001. " Thus, the AD2000 & Beyond Movement will formally close on that day although we pray the vision of a church for every people and the gospel for every person will love on in the hearts, minds and spirits of countless churches, ministries and God s people around the world even growing until He comes!" [Final>http://www.ad2000.org/re10402.htm]

"The Prayer Track was a strategy to partner like-minded ministries and intercessors to pray for the unreached peoples of the 10/40 Window > http://www.ad2000.org/1040broc.htm(a region stretching east from Spain and North Africa, to Japan and Indonesia). Global Harvest Ministries (GHM) was founded to administrate the coordination of this effort as millions of intercessor prayed "Through the Window. "

AD2000 And Beyond: United Prayer Track "[It was the] central catalytic movement of the decade for synchronizing the numerous worldwide forces for evangelism that God has been preparing for these times."

Excerpts from a  memo written by Peter Wagner dated 17 May 1999 covering the plans for the future of the AD 2000 & Beyond United Prayer Track and Spiritual Warfare Network [SWN]. http://www.ad2000.org/  --The Future

"The future of the AD2000 United Prayer Track. The AD2000 Movement goes out of existence at the end of the year 2000, and the final celebration will be held in Jerusalem over that New Years Day of 2001. Luis Bush's International Office in Colorado Springs will close. ... all the AD2000 tracks will cease to exist as part of the AD2000 Movement per se at that time.... Some will continue independently ... Prayer Track, will transition into new wineskins. Our new wineskin is the World Prayer Center... The major outward symbol of this will be to change the title of Prayer Track News to Prayer Center News beginning with the January-March 2000 issue. At that time the list of the leaders of the United Prayer Track and the Spiritual Warfare Network which have appeared on the back page of every issue will no longer appear. Instead the staff of the World Prayer Center will be listed.

I have recently written to George Otis, Jr. (Co-coordinator and Director of the Spiritual Mapping Division), John Dawson (Director of the Reconciliation Division), and Eddie and Alice Smith (Coordinator and Executive Director of the U.S. Prayer Track), informing them of the change as of 2000 and recommending ways that we might continue our relationship in the World Prayer Center. I plan on writing in a similar vein to Ed Silvoso (Director of the Strategic Prayer Evangelism Division)...

The Spiritual Warfare Network. The SWN came into the AD2000 Movement as a condition of my accepting the invitation from Luis Bush to coordinate the United Prayer Track in 1991. ... While the SWN and the Prayer Track have been separate organizations, they have, by agreed upon design, been closely associated through the decade... many United Prayer Track coordinators have doubled also as Spiritual Warfare Network coordinators. As I have said, you are the key players in the International Spiritual Warfare Network.

I do not see the Spiritual Warfare Network phasing out as will the United Prayer Track.... I will continue indefinitely as the international coordinator of the SWN and my office will be the international office.

... I am switching from a top-down to a bottom-up management style.... My goal is to have the world covered by coordinators...I will exercise my role as international coordinator only on the initiative of geographical coordinators from now on, and I will support the WSWN only where I am in relationship with a coordinator who wishes to have the covering and support of the international office..." http://www.globalharvestministries.org/home.qry?ID=307

C. Peter Wagner’s World Prayer Center [WPC]> http://www.globalharvestministries.org/home.qry?ID=41 "The World Prayer Center is a trans-denominational effort spearheaded by two Christian leaders. Each was called to play a strategic role with the Center. They are: Dr. C. Peter Wagner of Global Harvest Ministries, and Pastor Ted Haggard of New Life Church, Colorado Springs, Colorado."

The World Prayer Center is home for two ministries joined to serve the church and mobilize prayer for the lost. Global Harvest Ministries collects and broadcasts strategic prayer requests, spiritual mapping data, and reports evangelistic breakthroughs. New Life Church, under the direction of Rev. Ted Haggard, has mobilized over forty local churches for 24/7 prayer at the World Prayer Center. World Prayer Center (A division of New Life Church) trains and mobilizes local church prayer leaders under the banner of the National Association of Local Church Prayer Leaders (NALCPL). http://www.nalcpl.net/

"Since prayer is the precursor to every great move of God, a fully equipped nerve center with data and information about prayer needs throughout the world enable intercessors to pray intelligently. Global Harvest Ministries networks prayer ministries, denominations, churches and cell groups for this purpose. This creates a united prayer front that opposes Satan's attempt to divide and isolate believers, and blind so many to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. "

Ralph Winter – 

Winter is the founder of the US Center for World Mission, Pasadena CA, > http://www.uscwm.org/> which was a direct result of strategies developed at Fuller. Ralph Winter spent ten years there, as professor of missions at the School of World Mission. Winter was also instrumental in forming a movement called Theological Education by Extension, the William Carey Library publishing house, the American Society of Missiology, the Perspectives Study Program, and the International Society for Frontier Mission. 

The US Center for World Missions is an umbrella organization which oversees the outreach ministry of the entire global evangelical church. Joint initiatives fall under the Lausanne banner, AD2000 and Beyond Movement, GCOWE  and numerous others. Of the 4000 plus groups that partner with USCWM are the Mission Aviation Fellowship, Wycliffe Bible Translators, Intervarsity Fellowship, Campus Crusade for Christ, Billy Graham Evangelical Association, Christian Educators Association and other organizations and groups working in Christianity.

USCWM is divided into: Strategy; Mobilization; Training which subdivides into World Christian Foundations, Perspectives Classes, and Frontier Service Corps; and the final division being Services. It physically houses over 300 missionary researchers in dozen's of institutes. It's Global Mapping Project (GMP), is a computer data bank that compiles data gathered by Wycliffe Bible Translators, World Vision and all the other agencies USCWM houses. The William Carey International University programs allow missionaries a way around 'closed to missionaries' countries by offering a degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.

If one reads his various writings, particularly in Perspectives, we would note that Ralph Winter changed the new covenant in Christ back to the Abrahamic covenant. Winter believes and instills in his teachings that there is one covenant in the Bible, the Abrahamic covenant. In his way of thinking, the church is to take the Biblical law and standard to all nations, which, according to him, both the Jews and Jesus failed in their "mission" to do. He claims that Jesus came to re-iterate the Abrahamic covenant and the church has now been assigned the "secret mission" to bring it to completion. http://www.perspectives.org/index.html

Ralph Winter's intent of implementing Biblical law correlates with our research on the Hebrew Roots movement and subsequent research into it's roots and connections, which span into every denomination. The various branches all lead into two things which all are being leavened with, and that is gnosticism and the occult.

Winter, along with Jay Gary and others, developed the Perspectives Curriculum, which has been embraced worldwide.  The World Network of Religious Futurists presents the article,  "What Mean These Stones?, The Watchword Consultation Report from Colorado Springs, by Jay Gary and Todd Johnson. It shows Winter's influence and the ecumenical connections. 

"...Under the auspices of the Christian Futures Network, some 16 leaders gathered in Colorado Springs on March 15-16, 1999 to mark the 20th anniversary of "A Church for Every People by the Year 2000... We affirmed that "A Church for Every People by the Year 2000" was a call to a new generation. In 1979, it focused the call to "frontier missions," which Dr. Ralph Winter had been giving since the 1974 Lausanne Congress. During the consultation, Winter observed that the watchword brought a paradigm shift, toward reaching peoples, rather than just countries; toward forming churches, rather than just winning souls. We rejoiced in the fact that the Watchword gave birth to the Perspectives Study Program and the Caleb Project which exposed thousands of people to the power of unreached peoples thinking and shaped the life calling of hundreds of missionaries. In the late '80s, the second half of the watchword, "by the year 2000" gave birth to an AD2000 vision. As we entered the '90s, national evangelism strategies, confessional decades of evangelism, and mission and intercession strategies were all empowered toward the 10/40 window by the millennial milestone."  http://www.wnrf.org/networks/watchrep.htm

We know that the original call to the 1974 Lausanne Congress was put out by Billy Graham. "Perspectives" was designed to follow-up converts of Billy Graham, Intervarsity Fellowship, and Campus Crusade outreaches and crusades, and is widely being used for the training of field workers for Wycliffe Bible Translators. The principles behind Perspectives are to get individuals educated in restoration, dominion and manifested sons of God theology and to see to it that these individuals are effective in infiltrating "key" positions globally, who then are strategically able to implement the agenda. Many naive Christians have been seduced into this program, because they simply do not recognize the theology of the writers, their resources or their theology in the various chapters within the course.

Jude 1

21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:
23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
