#040: The 7 Mountains: How To Thrive In Your Place of Assignment [Podcast]

There is a great need in our culture for agents of cultural transformation. Every segment of society is under the influence of someone’s leadership and agenda. Our challenge is that the sons of God have been AWOL. We have not been engaged in the place of our assignment. In this episode, we are going to introduce you to the concept of the 7 Mountains of Cultural Influence, and how YOU can become activated and engaged in your God ordained place of assignment, and bring the Kingdom of God to the sphere you are called to impact.

Anniversary Report:

As you know, my wife and I just got back from our vacation in Lake Tahoe, celebrating 25 years of marriage. We stayed at the very lovely Hyatt Sierra Mountain Lodge, near the shores of Lake Tahoe. We spent 6 wonderful days experiencing the beauty and majesty of this wonderful area. It was a significant time for Sabrina and me, as we reflected on our first 25 years together, and dreamed about the next 25 years and all that God has for us.

Scriptural Principle:

Isaiah 2:1-3                                  

1 The word which Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. 2 Now it will come about that In the last days, the mountain of the house of the LORD Will be established as the chief of the mountains, And will be raised above the hills; And all the nations will stream to it. 3 And many peoples will come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, To the house of the God of Jacob; That He may teach us concerning His ways And that we may walk in His paths.” For the law will go forth from Zion And the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

Romans 12:2

1 Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

In 1975, Bill Bright, founder of Campus Crusade, and Loren Cunningham, founder of Youth With a Mission, had lunch together in Colorado. God simultaneously gave each of these change agents 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 are to impact any nation for Jesus Christ, then we would have to affect the seven spheres, or mountains of society that are the pillars of any society.
