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.
“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.” Matthew 24:14
We are called to impact every part of our culture, which there are seven mountains in our culture. The first part of the culture is the Religion/Faith 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 the 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 mountains 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.
“Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand.” Matthew 12:25
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!
“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.” Matthew 6:9-13

Surplus living is a biblical concept taught by Christ and the apostles. Surplus is a kingdom principle… Surplus is more than is required or needed-over and above the norm. Surplus spills over the top. It is more than sufficient. It is excessive, beyond what you have expected.
Prosperity begins with your decision to believe God desires to use you to bless others and that to do so means you must have an overflow, a surplus, an abundance.
Jesus served with the heart of a king but ruled with the heart of a servant. This is the essential combination that must be embraced by those longing to shape the course of history.
Everyone has a responsibility to support their community. My rule of thumb is: support the community that supports you. Find a cause that means something to you and support it with your time, energy and money. For me, that cause is adoption, but you should find something that’s important to you. Giving back is the right thing to do.
