In 1975 a few Christians discussed their concerns about America and growing immorality. They both began to feel Christians needed to infiltrate 7 different areas of our culture. Their belief is that culture is where the battle exists for righteousness in our nation. Later a Christian author later wrote a book about it which brought it to the forefront again.
The 7 cultural mountains are:
1. Arts and Entertainment
With the belief that these areas are the battlefield, there are needed 'change agents' to scale these mountains to 'restore' America back to God.
I BELIEVE THIS IS BIBLICLY WRONG. Christ is our example and He did not change the culture. He preached the TRUTH. He instructed us to preach the gospel; to share the truth of Christ. We are not called to change the world or to make a nation righteous. We are called to bear witness to Christ, just as the disciples did. We are called to sacrifice EVERYTHING so that others can know Jesus. And as they come to know Jesus, most likely a change in culture will follow. BUT IT BEGINS WITH JESUS. HE HAS THE POWER, NOT MAN.
The New Apostolic Reformation has taken it a step further into evil by believing they can usher in the return of Christ as they gain the wealth of the land.
ALL OF THIS IS ANTICHRIST. And most evangelical churches are following one or more aspects of these demonic doctrines.
But back to what I said. Some things are just obvious. Though the scripture basis regarding the 7 cultural mountains is Isaiah 2:2 which says:
And it shall come to pass in the last of the days or times, that the mountain of the LORD's house shall be confirmed as the head of the mountains and shall be exalted above the hills; and all the Gentiles shall flow unto it.
But I don't believe this scripture is a good basis for this agenda. There is one God. There is one mountain. And Isaiah is talking about the Gentiles being grafted into the vine (with the Jews). I don't think he is saying that the world will revere Him as God of all for we live in a fallen world, that is if Isaiah's prophecy isn't about Christ's thousand year reign.
I would encourage people to look to Revelation 17 and the reference to the 7 mountains (not the one as in Isaiah).
AND there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I SAW A WOMAN SIT upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are SEVEN MOUNTAINS, ON WHICH THE WOMAN SITTETH.
15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.18 And THE WOMAN which thou sawest IS THAT GREAT CITY, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
I know there are a lot of people who believe the 7 mountains are the 7 hills or Rome. Perhaps they are the 7 cultural mountains Christians are being encouraged to scale and rule over.
I found another article regarding those who support 7 mountain 'theology'. It was titled 'BEYOND SALVATION IS OCCUPATION.'
It's wrong. And I fear it is going to lead us to some terrible times in this country and for the world.
