by Mike Oppenheimer, 6/4/20 The last number of years YWAM have given us further insight into their actual beliefs and philosophy of ministry. And it has further deteriorated. What we will discuss only illustrates how far and fast they are going away from the Bible into new interpretations led by false prophets and apostles of the NAR. If most pastors and missionaries knew what was really going on in YWAM today they would not be sending their youth to this be part of this organization. To understand the foundation we need to go back to 1975. This One example from the founder Loren Cunningham should have anyone pause. Cunningham says God gave him a revelation (along with Bill Bright) on the plan to Christianize the world; through what is now dubbed the 7 Mountain Mandate. By this teaching we can classify YWAM as Kingdom now, a dominionist view for the church to reign before Christ returns. This is the reason why Peter Wagner who began the NAR (New apostolic reformation, a government for the church) adopted it. The 7 mountain has been going on from 1975, but YWAM did not make it known, it was hush hush until the last several years. Read Part 1 , Part 2 , Part 3 and Part 4.
As we witness the distressing events happening all around us, let those who name the name of Jesus Christ and put their trust in Him pray that God's Word and the Gospel of Jesus Christ would go forth, that hearts would be softened, and that many would turn their lives over to the Lord in humility, faith, and truth. The Bible says that God is "longsuffering" and does not want any to "perish, but that all should come to repentance" (2 Peter 3:9). Repentance means changing direction - turning around and turning toward God. May many do that in this country and around the world.
None other could have met the claims of God's holiness against the sinner and have come out triumphant at last. He alone could atone for sin. Because He has settled every claim, God has raised Him from the dead, and seated Him at His own right hand in highest glory. Have you trusted "the stranger's Surety"? If not, turn to Him now while grace is free.
