Ousting Babylon from the Marketplace Session 2 — Dave Hodgson
Introduction: What if your practical life experience plus God’s gifting could prepare you for success in your Divine Assignment? Dave’s childhood experience and leadership in the SAS were divine preparation for his Kingdom assignment. Many in the Kingdom are waiting on you to do your assignment, which will always seem impossible until you are prepared and experiencing the addition of divine favor. Dave reminds us that we need to do our assignment, to do it righteously, and to do things in multiples. Proof of this is illustrated from Dave’s own life, as well as lessons from Napoleon, Moses, Joseph, and others.

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.
