Systems that Control Us

Learn about the 12 systems that control this world, and how to abide under His authority.

Introduction

Let’s go to the beginning with Satan in the garden where he deceives Eve. She describes to him that she cannot eat from the one tree in the center of the garden because if she eats, she will die. Anytime you are looking at a system, it is put in place because it is trying to accomplish something. If God puts a system in place, it is to produce life and more abundantly. The enemy can use a system for the opposite reason:


  • A system to steal from you
  • A system to literally kill you
  • A system to destroy you


He will take a system that is already in place and try to pervert it, something that was meant for you to have life and twist it to steal, kill and destroy you.

Temptation - the enemy's first trap

The enemy will use propaganda in the form of temptation. Satan tells Eve that if she eats from the tree, she wouldn’t die; she’ll just be like God. Eve knew the system that God put in place, but when she started to deviate from that system, that’s where we see things start to take a severe turn. She starts buying into the propaganda that the enemy is sowing. The moment he added something to the way the system is setting up (you won’t die if you eat from the tree), what that system produced could no longer protect or add life. In fact it took life away, because God said that if you eat of the fruit, you will surely die (Genesis 2:17).


You see the same perversion in Satan tempting Jesus (the second Adam) in the desert. Satan tells Jesus to turn those stones into bread (Matthew 4:3). The enemy is trying to get things out of their natural order, to get Jesus to break protocol in the supernatural. God’s creative laws state that every seed produces after its own kind (Genesis 1:11). Jesus took bread and multiplied it. He took fish and multiplied it. Jesus took water and turned it into wine. Has anyone ever seen a grape? It is 60-70% water. Water is a consumable and life-giving, and Jesus turns that into an unfermented wine that is good for the stomach.

Jesus is our example

So here the enemy is telling Jesus to take a stone and turn it into bread. Mankind is not designed to eat rocks. It would be against the natural order of things to turn something that is not designed for human consumption and reverse that order. Satan will go in direct opposition of the natural order of things to create something that is not supposed to be created to begin with. We see this in our world now. There are no sexual identities anymore. A man and a man or a woman and a woman do not produce. That is out of God’s natural seed order. There’s no seedtime harvest there. 


We see these perversions and the enemy is trying to get Jesus to pervert the order of things. Why is he doing this? He’s trying to get Jesus to satisfy the need (His hunger). Isn’t it interesting that right in the middle of the fornication section of Paul’s teaching, he mentions food and the temptations of food and equilibrates it to the lusts of the flesh for the desire of fornication. 


1 Corinthians 6:13 - “Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them.” There’s an insatiable appetite, and the enemy will play on your appetite, because if he can get to your appetite, he’ll use a system to get to your appetite and change that system that was there to edify your spirit man into one that will satisfy your flesh man. If your spirit man is edified, you’ll have life and life more abundantly (John 10:10). If you sow to the flesh, you’ll reap corruption (Galatians 6:8). The enemy can corrupt your life, but he has to find a way to influence the systems that control us.


He'll say that there’s no boundaries or order – even if it’s not God’s plan. Many times people will say that the man upstairs will just surprise us when we get to Heaven, as if God’s grace will cause Him to go against His Word. We can’t ignore what God’s Word says – even when propaganda comes to feed our itching ears (2 Timothy 4:3 - “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables”). It is a way to manipulate you to follow a system that will destroy your life.

The enemy will lure you away from His system

The system is now saying to eat what you want. Simply pray a blessing over it and all is good. We see in the Garden of Eden, Satan tells Eve to eat whatever she wants, that she will NOT die. There are no consequences to the decisions she would make concerning what she ate. When Eve took a bite of the forbidden fruit, nothing happened immediately. The enemy convinced Eve using short-term gratification to choose destruction over life (God said that if you eat the fruit, you will surely die!). Eve walked away from the system that was there to protect her, and chose a system that produced immediate results, but it wasn’t the system that God had prepared for my life.


Satan tried to get Jesus to leave the system that was there to protect Him by telling Him to jump off a cliff and the angels would catch Him. There is no scripture telling us to test the angels. Jesus would have stepped out of the system that was there to protect Him and stepped into the enemy’s trap.


Now people are saying that there is no judgment in the afterlife, that we have an inner god, that we are gods. Has anyone ever talked to some of these tree-hugging, Internet valedictorians? They will regurgitate these thoughts and opinions of man that aren’t based on anything. People are so far away from the safety of the system that is in this Word. These opinions and thoughts are there to cause pride to come up inside of you (Proverbs 16:18), so he can take the system that was there to protect you and pervert it to use against you. The Word instructs against pride, the enemy gets you in pride. When the worldly systems begin to fail, the people in those systems will fail as well.


When the enemy tried to convince Jesus to bow before Him so the enemy could give all the kingdoms of the world to Him, he was trying to get Jesus into pride. How does that relate to the average guy? Everyday people are selling their souls for a stake in this world. The enemy will get you to commit to something, and when you do, you are in covenant, and that covenant is a legal binding contract in earth and in Heaven. The enemy is binding you to a contract that’s locked into a system that will produce failure. God already has you protected in a system that gives you life and life more abundantly. When you come into agreement with a system, you are committing to it.


The enemy wants to influence you to buy into the systems that control this entire world so he can control you. We are designed here on earth as spiritual leverage to change world systems. God put you in the place you’re at to change the system that is broken. You have the blueprint, the answers. You aren’t to be of it, but in it. Kingdom should be established wherever you are (Matthew 6:9).

Egypt and Babylon

There are two main world systems that fight for control of 12 world systems. 


There is Egypt, which is the world system that operates under the influence of the spirit of mammon (Matthew 6:24). This world system will always be driven by the love of money. We have rap music that shows this love of money, prosperity, wealth, abundance, diamonds, etc. They try to get our children to buy into this perverted system to control them.


Babylon – the world’s religious system. This is the spirit of the antiChrist set up in multiple religious forms. 


1 John 2:18 - “Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.” 


2 John 7 - “For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.”

Deceivers among us

Someone who doesn’t confess Jesus, no matter how good of a person they seem to be, is anti-Christ. So we have to lead them, they MUST not lead us. This doesn’t mean that we are haters, or that we don’t associate or be civil to one another, but our nature will align with those in whom we find our identity. We identify with Christ. The world does not, therefore they are aligned with a spirit of antiChrist. They are a part of a system that we are not a part of.


Our youth are mesmerized by people. The enemy comes as an angel of light to deceive all that he can. 

1 John 4:4-6 - “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.”


If you begin following any of those worldly systems, the Word says that you are following a spirit of error. We are of God, so God will hear us. Are we going to have spiritual ears, hearing what the spirit of God is saying, or are we having earthly ears, hearing everything else?


The world is trying to blur the lines, the truth. We must redraw clear-cut lines.

12 - The number of governmental rule

We do this by looking in the Word of God, the Hebraic script, the Geomatra and Hebraic numerology that represents revelational meaning. There are assigned numbers to letters, and the numbers have divine meanings that let you see things, literal pictures of what the Word is saying. Those are called revelational scriptures. These revelational scriptures will help you understand what you’ve just read. That’s what’s so rich about the original documents of the Word. It is multidimensional. 


When you read something in the Old Testament, it should maintain consistency, looking the same all through scripture. This is how to test to see if it’s true doctrine. So, when you see the number 12, you know you’re talking about governmental rule. God sits on the throne, and if someone sits on a throne, there has to be a rule. If there’s a rule, there has to be a governmental system. God is a God of order. When God established his rule on the earth, there were 12 tribes, and they were the structure for the Hebrew nation. In the New Testament, you’ll see there were 12 disciples later to become 12 apostles to build the Church of Jesus Christ. It is an established governmental system. Jesus is establishing government here on the earth.



The 12 Systems of the World

So we see Jesus telling us to pray on earth as it is in Heaven, when we look back to Heaven, we see the 12 Tribes are named over the 12 Gates of Heaven. When you look at the foundations of Heaven, you’ll notice that there are 12 and the names of the 12 apostles are on the 12 foundations that form in Heaven. So in this mirror image we see that Kingdom is being established on earth, we will see in the Old Testament through the tribes and the New Testament through the Church being established together to rule and reign on this earth. This is the system that God put in place to rule. This is the Kingdom that we are to establish here on earth.


The 12 systems that are set up in the earth are:


  1. Governmental
  2. Educational
  3. Financial
  4. Media/Entertainment
  5. Legislative
  6. Political
  7. Religious
  8. Technological
  9. Military
  10. Commerce
  11. Healthcare
  12. Communication


The #1 influencers of people are the ones who control those 12 systems. Whoever controls those systems controls the people. 


We have to have more of a global responsibility. We should be proclaiming liberty worldwide because this is the system that has freedom in it. Liberty is not confined to a country, but it is in the system that is set up.

How do we change these systems? Through the enemy’s efforts to control the systems, we see the people are being influenced and they buy right in. Remember the educational system? One lady decides to be tenacious and now we see mammon and antiChrist rising up to take control and take prayer out of school. They took prayer out of school and we saw it in our lifetime. What was the result? An overwhelming increase in teenage pregnancy, date rape, drugs, sex, pornography, gang violence, student killing student, etc. 


So mammon and antiChrist rose up and changed the schools as we knew them. Don’t you know that most all of the original Ivy-league schools were founded as Christians universities by ministers to train up ministers and Godly Christian leaders. Whether people like it or not that is the history. Now they’ve taken that system and converted and perverted it, and now you see a system that’s failing. 


They’ve injected a curriculum (Common Core) that’s trying to make a common system to be conducive to their worldview system and we already know where it’s going to end up. Until they get a common God-system established on the principles of the Word of God, we will not see a successful system. 


Control the systems – control the people.


In Media/Entertainment, the word “strict censorship” was commonplace in the 1930’s. In the early 1950’s it was so strict that Elvis couldn’t show his pelvis. Have you seen the trash on TV now? The world has seen so much of this trash, that their mirror neurons are causing them to do what they are seeing, and are being programmed by the programming they're watching on TV. They feel like they have to be seen and are starving for attention. They are so empty that they are trying to get fulfilled by the people and the failed system that they are part of. Whereas, the more fulfilled you are, the more peace you have, the more comforted you are and the more security you have from the God that’s inside of you, the less you need to be seen. The more you get into Christ the less you want to be seen, the more you will want people to see Christ.


This system is where you will see some of the fastest changes in a society, and they’re taking that system over, and the church isn’t doing anything about it.



Conclusion

Ephesians 1:20 (Message) - “All this energy issues from Christ: God raised him from death and set him on a throne in deep heaven, in charge of running the universe, everything from galaxies to governments, no name and no power exempt from his rule. And not just for the time being, but forever. He is in charge of it all, has the final word on everything. At the center of all this, Christ rules the church. The church, you see, is not peripheral to the world; the world is peripheral to the church. The church is Christ's body, in which he speaks and acts, by which he fills everything with his presence.”


There is a governmental rule of Heaven, and we are of that Kingdom. It’s time that we stop allowing these worldly systems to affect and control us, and start landing His Kingdom where we are.
