7 Mountains of influence

The Seven Mountains of Societal Influence

In 1975, Bill Bright, founder of Campus Crusade and Loren Cunningham, founder of Youth With a Mission(YWAM), developed a God-given, world-changing strategy. Their mandate: Bring Godly change to a nation by reaching its seven spheres, or mountains, of societal influence.

They concluded that in order to truly transform any nation with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, these seven facets of society must be reached: Religion, Family,Education, Government, Media, Arts & Entertainment and Business.

The Reformation Prayer Network’s primary goal is to be a catalyst, through prayer and righteous activism, which will bring change to these areas of societal influence.

1. RELIGION

Every society has some type of belief in a superior being or beings. In the east, religions tend to be polytheistic (many gods) or outright idolatrous (such as Hinduism and Buddhism). Although these religions are thousands of years old, they nonetheless continue to thrive today. In the west, Christianity and Catholicism are predominant, but postmodern views are increasingly being accepted and the concept of God is being rejected. This is especially true in Europe.

The Christian Church is described in the Greek language as the ecclesia. Literally translated, the word ecclesia means “governing body.” Although we don’t condone theocracies, this translation suggests that the Church should have great influence in all other spheres that make up a society. With a plethora of categorized religions around the world, it’s the Church’s responsibility to reach the lost with the love and Gospel of Jesus Christ, and expand the Kingdom in ministerial efforts, both nationally and internationally.

2. FAMILY

In any functional society, the family is the “building block” of the community. Throughout the Bible, you will find familial examples that portray how we ought to live our lives today. God desires that men, women, and children within a family be united as one in His love. After all, He is the ultimate Father (Romans 8:14-17).

The families of the United States have been under constant and prolonged attack. Today, the assailants are fatherlessness, divorce (50% rate in secular and Christian marriages), abuse, homosexual marriage, pornography, and other negative influences have brought great dysfunction to American life. God is calling fathers and mothers (both spiritual and biological) to bring order to the chaos that the enemy has unleashed against families in America. He also wants to bring healing to marriages and relationships within families in order to maintain a moral foundation for children in the future to stand upon.

3. EDUCATION

At one time the education system of America unapologetically incorporated the Bible, prayer to the God of the Bible, and biblical values in every aspect of school life. Not coincidentally, this system produced a people that produced the most powerful and prosperous nation the earth has ever seen.

Now, the children of our nation are inundated with liberal ideologies, atheistic teaching and postmodern principles in our public schools and in most universities (including many Christian institutions). Put simply; they are being indoctrinated with often false, biased and anti-biblical information.

A re-introduction of biblical truth and Bible-centric values is the key to renewal and restoration in America’s failing educational system.

4. GOVERNMENT

Proverbs 14:34 states that, “righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.” Many times, as exemplified in the Old Testament, a nation’s moral standards are dependent on those exhibited by its leaders (or predominant political party). While each individual is responsible for his or her own sins; the fact remains that people are greatly influenced by those moral (or lack thereof) that popular leaders adopt.

The progressive liberal agenda, empowered by well-known men and women in the arts and entertainment industries, have made significant gains in the political arena over the past few decades. In fact, many liberal groups, such as the ACLU, seek to remove anything related to God or Christianity from the governmental and educational systems because of a misapplied interpretation of the phrase, “separation of church and state.” We must see a shift in this arena in order to preserve the Christian heritage that America was founded upon. The goal is to put in place righteous political leaders that will positively affect all aspects of government.

5. MEDIA

The media mountain includes news sources such as radio, TV news stations, newspapers, Internet news and opinion (blog) sites and etc. The media has the potential to sway popular opinion on current issues based upon its reporting, which is not always truthful or accurate. In the 2008 elections, the liberal “elite” media played a vital role, especially in the Presidential race. Their generally supportive and positive reporting greatly influenced the outcome.

There has been a rise in Christian news services, which is needed. However, to bring transformation to the mountain of media, Christians who are gifted for and called into this type of work must be willing to report righteously and truthfully in the secular marketplace.

6. ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT

In this mountain we find some of the most influential forces shaping our society. Music, filmmaking, television, social media, and the performing arts drive the cultural tastes, values and standards of a nation’s citizens, particularly its youth.

With a heavy reliance on the strong appeal of sex, drugs and alcohol, the arts and entertainment industries wield significant influence. The body of Christ needs powerful, righteous men and women who are not afraid to take their God-given talent into the arts and entertainment arenas. People ready to further His purposes, while impacting those who are lost in darkness and would not otherwise be interested in any kind of Christian message in traditional forms.

7. BUSINESS

The ability to literally create wealth through ingenuity, enterprise, creativity and effort and is a God-given gift and a universal impulse. The markets and economic systems that emerge whenever people are free to pursue buying and selling become the lifeblood of a nation. This includes anything from farms to small businesses to large corporations.

Of course this realm is prone to corruption through idolatry, greed and covetousness. In response, the Church must embrace its responsibility to train up those who are called into the marketplace to manage businesses and provide leadership with integrity and honesty. We believe it is the Lord’s will to make his people prosperous and that He desires for His Church to use its wealth to finance the work of Kingdom expansion. Simply put: Prosperity with a purpose.

The thief…

During prayer and communion with my husband last night I had a vision of a thief trying to steal mail out of a mail box and then break into this business. He was walking back and forth trying to figure out how to get in.
Glory to God! When God has you no devil in hell has the right to break in and steal what rightfully belongs to you.
I rebuke and bind every demonic force and principalities of the air trying to steal, kill, and destroy! All their attacks come to nothing, null and void! In the name of Jesus.
I prophesy the abundant life and the overflow of blessings of the Lord Jesus Christ over your life and family. In Jesus name. Amen
Glory to God! Hallelujah! Father God we give you all glory, honor, and power!!! Amen and Amen

You can do it!

I have been taking steps to move my mountains. The first step was about 3 months ago, getting off the sweets. This by far was not easy. There are days I really struggle with wanting to buy a back of candy or chocolate and devour it. It is like an addiction, such as cigarettes, alcohol, etc. Sugar can cause all kinds of sickness and even kill you.

Tuesday was the second step. I started an exercise program, Burstfit Fire. I bought the program I think early last year and worked out with it maybe 2 or 3 months and put it on the shelf. LOL

Failure is not an option. You pick yourself up and keep going. If at first, you don’t succeed-try, try again. Never give up!

You really don’t know how out of shape you are till you start working out! LOL, The first day my right knee gave me a fit and it hurt to bend or walk up and down stairs. I said, God, if you want me to continue these workouts you are going to have to heal this knee. Next morning, no pain, worked out…NO PAIN!!! Praise the Lord.

The third step is to start eating more healthier. God showed me this one through my daughter-in-law Hannah this morning and also my fourth step. Here is a link Hannah sent me for my 3rd step….https://puttingmyfeetinthedirt.com/2017/06/01/the-results-are-in/

The crazy thing is, God has been showing me this for a couple of years now. I said God, you want me to eat like this, it takes money. I need some money and a lot of it. God does not have a problem with wealth unless we make it our god. There is only one God. That is our heavenly Father. We are to love and serve HIM. Put God first in our life and all other things are secondary. I tell you another thing that takes a lot of money, to go around the world to share the gospel, to help the poor, homeless, widows and orphans.

Matthew 22:37-40 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

The fourth step…to get out of my comfort zone. HE showed me a most unusual way to start off! LOL Coming soon. I will give you an update.

Dear sisters in Christ, be all you can be in Christ Jesus. God made you strong, beautiful, and smart. Whatever weaknesses you have or face, you can do it. Don’t let the enemy lie to you anymore. Do not let the naysayers make you feel like you are inferior and can not accomplish your goals, your calling. God says, “You can”! God is with you every step of the way! God will never leave you, nor forsake you! To God be the glory!!!

Begin today to start making strategies for your goals and then take baby steps to make your goals a reality. Go into prayer and ask God what to do, where to start and to help you. God answers prayers.

You are coming out of your Egypt, from slavery and imprisonment (old mindsets, hindrances, fear, broke and broken), into rich fulfillment. (Bold as a lion, brave as a bear, healed physically and mentally, wealthy, and more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus our Lord! Amen

This is your season for Promotion, Upgrade, Blessings, and Promises fulfilled! Praise the Lord!!!

Be prepared for battle! The enemy will raise his ugly head to hinder and stop you. Beware of false prophets that will lead you away from your destiny. You know what God has been showing you, stay on the path. Do not turn to the left or right, stay on the course God has planned out for you!!!

A couple of years ago I had a dream of traveling North on Highway 303 and was getting close to crossing the bridge when all of a sudden someone started firing missile’s at the bridge and made a big hole at the foot of the bridge and firing at the cars that were crossing over the bridge. Some made a turn and headed for the hole and crashed. Some barely made it across and some made it with ease. One man barely made it across and when he did, jumped out of his car and got on the pavement kissing it and saying, “Thank God I made it!” The missile is an attack from the enemy. The ones that made the turn and crashed did not make it to their destiny because they believed the lie of the enemy.

Proverbs 4:27 Don’t turn to the right or to the left; keep your feet away from evil.

I saw in a vision, ancient doors opening up and people walking in. Read Psalm 24. Praise the Lord!!!

Psalm 121 (KJV)

121 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. 2 My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. 3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. 4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. 5 The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand. 6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. 7 The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. 8 The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

Matthew 21:21 (KJV)

21 Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.

Focus

I was watching a speech that Donald Trump gave the other day and he said something that resounded within my spirit. This is what he said…

You can not let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams. Adversity makes you stronger. Don’t give in, don’t back down and never stop doing what you know is right. Nothing worth doing never, ever, ever came easy. The more righteous your fight the more opposition you will face.~~~ End of the Presidents quote.

In this life, you are going to have people that will come against you. People will say hateful, untruthful, judgmental and downright mean things to and about you. But you can not let them stop you from fulfilling your God-given dreams and calling. Oh! And let us not forget the principalities in high places that come against us! We need to be fully armed with the word of God to speak against these attacks!

Ephesians 6:10-18
The Whole Armor of God
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints—
Even our Lord and Savior Jesus was hated and told us through scriptures that we to would be hated because of Him. We must stand firm in our beliefs and in Christ Jesus. It is our faith that will help us overcome all these persecutions. Our faith in Jesus Christ.

We tend to lose our focus on what really matters in this life when opposition comes our way. Instead of focusing on all the negativity and problems, we need to be focusing on what our talents, calling, and who we are in Christ Jesus.

Stop thinking about what the next problem that could arise and start thinking (focusing) on what good will happen or what the next blessing God has for you.

For instance, look at Peter when he got out of the boat to walk on water to meet Jesus. When he focused on Jesus he was triumphant and then the winds started and he took his eyes off Jesus, he began to sink. When we focus on the problem and take our eyes off Jesus is when we let the bad circumstances in our life hinder us from all that God has for us. Sound familiar?

Matthew 14:22-33
Jesus Walks on the Water
22 Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowd. 23 After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone, 24 and the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it. 25 Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. 26 When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear. 27 But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” 28 “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” 29 “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” 31 Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?” 32 And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. 33 Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”

Doubt, fear and little faith will cause you to be overwhelmed by your circumstances. God has put a dream inside of me, gave me spiritual gifts and a calling. I am by far not qualified for any of these positions. I am not a speaker, I do not write well, I shy away from crowds, I have insecurity issues and the list goes on. There have been people come against me, said I was cursed and said all kinds of ugly things to me. But I have not let these things set me back or stop me from moving on to what God has for me and called me to do and neither should you. I am a work in progress and that is okay. God is the author and finisher of my faith.

Here is scripture the Lord showed me some time back.
Romans 8:28-30
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. 29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. 30 And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.

We are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus.
Romans 8:31-39
What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34 Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written:
“For your sake we face death all day long;
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”
37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Hebrews 12:1-2
Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Some things to pray about…Questionaire:
1.) Who am I in Christ Jesus?
2.) What are some things that I need to be focusing on?
3.) What is some stinking thinking that I have and need to get rid of
and repent for?
4.) Are there any people that I need to cut out of my life?
5.) Lord, am I where you want me right now, if not show me where I
need to be.

Vision of Jesus

I wanted to share a vision I had this morning. I saw Jesus holding an open bible and HE lifted it up above His head and then the Lord started bringing it down and it turned into a sword and he brought it down and held it in front of Him.

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

John Gill’s Commentary

Hebrews 4:12

For the word of God is quick and powerful
This is to be understood of Christ, the essential Word of God; for the Word of God was a known name of the Messiah among the Jews; (See Gill on John 1:1) and therefore the apostle makes use of it when writing to them: and the words are introduced as a reason why care should be taken, that men fall not off from the Gospel, because Christ, the author, sum, and substance of it, is the living God, omnipotent and omniscient; for not a thing, but a person is spoken of, who is a Judge, and a critical discerner of the secrets of men’s hearts: and certain it is, that this Word is spoken of as a person, and is said to be a priest in the following verses; to which may be added, that the several things said of the Word exactly agree with Christ: he is “the Word of God”; as the word is the birth of the mind, he is the only begotten of the Father; he is the Word that spoke for the elect in the council and covenant of grace, and that spoke all things out of nothing in creation; he is the Word that has been promised, and spoken of by the prophets from the beginning of the world; and is the interpreter of his Father’s mind, and our Advocate with the Father: he is

quick,
or, as it may be better rendered, “living”; he has life in himself as God, he is the living God; he is the living Redeemer and Mediator, and he lives for ever as man; he is the author and giver of life, natural, spiritual, and eternal: and he is powerful, as he appears to be in the creation and sustaining of all things; in his miracles and ministrations; in the work of man’s redemption; in the preservation of his people, and in his advocacy and intercession:

and sharper than any twoedged sword;
or “more cutting than one”, by the words of his mouth, by the power of his Spirit, and the efficacy of his grace; for his mouth itself is as a sharp sword, and out of it comes forth one, ( Isaiah 49:2 ) ( Revelation 19:13 Revelation 19:15 ) by which he pierces the hearts of men, cuts them to the quick, and lays them open. Jehovah is called a twoedged sword with the Jews F13; and Philo the Jew speaks of the flaming sword of the Logos F14.

Piercing even to the dividing asunder soul and spirit, and of the
joints and marrow;
the like property Philo the Jew ascribes to the “Logos”, or Word; he calls him (tomeuv) , “a cutter”, and says he cuts and divides all things, even all sensible things, yea, atoms, and things indivisible F15; the apostle seems here to have respect to the several names with which the soul of man is called by the Jews, (hmvnw xwr vqn) , “soul, spirit, and breath” F16; the latter of these, they say, dwells between the other two. Some by the soul understand the natural and unregenerate part in man, and by the spirit the renewed and regenerate part, which though sometimes are not so easily distinguished by men, yet they are by Christ; others think the soul designs the inferior faculties, the affections; and the spirit the superior ones, the mind and understanding; but the apostle’s meaning seems to be this, that whereas the soul and spirit are invisible, and the joints and marrow are covered and hid; so sharp and quick sighted, and so penetrating is the divine Word, that it reaches the most secret and hidden things of men: and this sense is confirmed by what follows,

and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart;
Christ knows what is in man; he is the searcher of the hearts, and the trier of the reins of the children of men; and this will be more apparent at the last day, when he will make manifest the counsels of the heart, and will critically inquire, and accurately judge of them.

Worthy of love

You are WORTHY of LOVE…

There are so many people looking for love, looking for love in all the wrong places. Have you ever heard of the song, “Looking for love”? Here are some of the lyrics…

I was lookin’ for love in all the wrong places

Lookin’ for love in too many faces

Searchin’ their eyes

Lookin’ for traces of what I’m dreaming of

Hoping to find a friend and lover

I’ll bless the day I discover

Another heart lookin’ for love ~~~

The wrong places are in other people. We look to people when we should look to Jesus Christ, whom out of HIS perfect love for us, willingly laid down HIS life on the cross for our sins.

John 3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 15:9 “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.

When we place God first in our lives and look to HIM as our all in all and know that God truly loves us, Yes, God loves us unconditionally! It does not matter what someone has done to you, said about you or to you to hurt you or make you feel unlovable, God loves you and you are worthy of LOVE!

Just like in the song lyric; I’ll bless the day I discover another heart looking for love…

That blessed day is when you find and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and give your heart completely to HIM.

If you are single and desire to be married, God will give you the right husband or wife, a person after HIS own heart that will love you, treat you with respect, and will not tear you down, but build you up. If you are married and you feel like your marriage is sinking and there is no hope… God is the God of restoration.

Trust in the Lord. Make HIM first in your life. Let God mend the broken pieces in your life, as only HE can do.

Isaiah 61:3 To console those who mourn in Zion,
To give them beauty for ashes,
The oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they may be called trees of righteousness,
The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.”

  YOU ARE WORTHY OF LOVE!!!

When you know your identity in Christ, then you will begin to see your self-worth.

Some scriptures to meditate on…

2 Corinthians 5:17  – Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

1 Peter 2:9  – But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

Galatians 2:20  – I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

John 15:15  – No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you.

John 1:12 – But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.

Ephesians 2:10 – For we are God’s masterpiece, created to do good works which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Ephesians 4:24 – And to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.

Expressions of HIS love.

God’s Everlasting Love

31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? 33 Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written:

“For Your sake we are killed all day long;
We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”

37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Worthy of love, By Katherine Dubose
