Today’s exhortation – seven mountains
In 1975, Bill Bright and Loren Cunningham, were having lunch together in Colorado when God simultaneously gave each of them a message to give to the other. During that same time frame Francis Schaeffer was given a similar message. That message was that if we’re to impact any nation for Jesus, then we would have to affect the seven spheres, or mountains of society that are the pillars of any society. These mountains are business, government, media, arts and entertainment, education, the family and religion. But there’re many subgroups under these main categories. In essence, God was telling them where the battlefield was. It was here where culture would be won or lost.
I believe you don’t have to be a pastor or preacher to be used by God. He has given everyone gifts and talents that can be used on one of the seven mountains to spread the gospel and minister to people like Joseph. As well as his ability to interpret dreams, he also had administrative skills. It was on the mountain of government that God used him in Egypt. It may also be that the area we’re working in today is where God’s equipping us to effect change for His glory. It is written, “A man’s gift makes room for him, And brings him before great men.” (Proverbs 18:16). Amen, have a blessed week.
