"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."
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.

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

Triskeles are of pagan and

“…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

the three-legged triskeles symbolizing rising, zenith,

divine power, infinite wisdom, eternity."3 Another
catalog tells us that the "'legs' represent birth,

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.

a wedding and God is raising up friends of the Bridegroom to
prepare the church, there's going to be a wedding!"

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,

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,

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

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.

top-down to a bottom-up management style.... My goal is to
have the world covered by coordinators...I will exercise my

so many to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. "
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.
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
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.
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
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,

Colorado Springs, by Jay Gary and Todd Johnson. It shows
Winter's influence and the ecumenical connections.
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
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.
