Ousting Babylon from the Marketplace Session 1 — Dave Hodgson
Introduction: What is Babylon? What are its core values? How does it affect all that is around us – like “The Matrix?” We are called to recognize and oust Babylon from the marketplace in order to establish God’s Kingdom on the earth. When we are faithful in engaging our assignment, God will add his favor to our endeavors, multiplying our success. A Kingdom economy will displace Babylon’s hold, and let us take vital ground that reflects the Gospel of the Kingdom throughout the earth

About the IdeaLeader: Sent, for safety, away from home all alone at the age of 4, Dave learned survival skills that later gave him a leadership role in Rhodesia’s SAS elite counter-terrorism unit. Forced from his nation through political upheaval, he ended up in Australia, where a God-encounter changed his life once again. Encountering dishonest and greedy Christians in ministry and business has taught Dave to recognize Babylon, and oust it from the marketplace.

God’s calling on his life is to fund the kingdom of God and be successful in the marketplace, while activating others to do the same.
