We continue the discussion about the Seven Mountains of Culture and how as Christians we are to have a Kingdom impact in each Mountain! We want to empower believers to move within the Mountain you are called to. For example, you have the Green family, who owns Hobby Lobby, they stood for the Kingdom of God and brought God’s Kingdom to the Business Mountain! Now they have funded the opening of the Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C. and now through the museum they are influencing the Religion Mountain. Know this, we are not limited to influencing one Mountain of Culture.
How can we be unified without compromising our beliefs? The Moravian Church of North America said, “In essentials unity, in non-essentials liberty, in all things charity.” We need to identify the non-essentials so that we can truly know what the essentials are and unify around that and through it all move in the love of God. God wants His Church to come together in unity and Jesus is Whom we all have in common. Jesus should be our focus as the Church comes together and not focus on the non-essentials. We can come together as the Church in unity without compromising who God is to us. We need to begin to give each other the freedom to follow God while staying loyal to the essentials.
Today, get a vision for discipling a nation, for praying for God’s Kingdom to come to all the Mountains of Culture: Religion, Family, Business, Education, Government, Arts and Entertainment, and Media Mountain. We want to hear from you! Also shared in this segment: E Pluribus Unum, Doctrine, Wealth, Ethiopia, Orphanage, Rick Joyner, Final Quest, Vision, Dream. Greg, Pat, and John shared in this segment.
“In Essentials Unity, In Non-Essentials Liberty, In All Things Charity” Part 1
What determines the makeup of a society? You must recognize the culture of the world and bring the Kingdom culture to where you are! God’s Kingdom is powerful. Matthew 24:14 “And the Good News about the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, so that all nations will hear it; and then the end will come.” We are called to impact every part of our culture, which there are seven mountains in our culture. The first part of culture is the Religion Mountain; it is important how religion unfolds in America. America was birthed with the need for freedom of religion. The Constitution has this written out already and we need to go back to the original intent of America and allow people to worship God freely. The government should make no laws concerning the restriction of worshiping God! Another part of culture is the Family Mountain, whoever is at this top of the mountain is influencing what happens in it. God says family should be a certain way, but other people are trying to change this part of culture. What has God called Christians to do? To be transformed by the renewing of our minds, which we read in Romans 12:2, “ Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
The next part of culture is the Education Mountain. As the Church have we given education over to a government system? What are we doing about this? We can decide to do what is right and stand up for our beliefs! We need to educate our children starting in our homes teaching them what is right, including teaching them the Word of God and the true history of America! When we are praying God’s Kingdom to come to these mountains we are calling forth Jesus that is already in believers to come forth and this will begin to change the mountains of culture.
Next, we have the Government Mountain; we see many people fighting to get to the top of this mountain. In America, we have Republicans, Democrats, and Independents with each group fighting to lead the mountain. God can use one person and even multiple people who are believers to stand for the Kingdom of God and influence the mountain of culture to change it for God’s Kingdom! If you read the Bible, you see many people who stood for God and because of their stand entire cultures were shifted to worship God versus the false gods they were worshiping. You need to have the Kingdom of God in you to be able to influence the culture! As a nation, we can’t be divided in our Government because our nation will fall. Matthew 12:25 “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand.” Another part of culture is the Media Mountain and Arts and Entertainment Mountain; there are so many different forms in these mountains with only small amounts of the light of Christ shining through. Whoever is over these mountains determines what comes out of these mountains and we need to pray for more of God’s Kingdom to come! The last part of culture is the Business Mountain, God wants to bless your business and He is interested in you and your business! Do you realize that God wants His Kingdom to come to your business?

When we pray, we are to pray for God’s Kingdom to come! We need to pray for His Kingdom to come to each mountain of culture! Matthew 6:9-13 “This, then, is how you should pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name, Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one.” We want to hear from you and what you think about these mountains of culture!
