The 7 Mountains of Culture: Must you reclaim them?

Screen Shot 2016-01-03 at 5.01.12 PM

Have you heard of the so-called “7 Mountains” theology? It’s also known as DOMINION THEOLOGY, the idea is that we as Christians must occupy and subdue the world as God’s stewards of the earth.   While we are called to live in the world, making disciples and and spreading the Good News of the gospel, some believe it is our duty to vanquish evil in seven different areas of culture before Jesus’ final return. This is man’s attempt to do what God alone can do–usher in permanent peace. So we’re asking you today, where do we see this in Scripture?

    And another ironic thing is this: If Jesus needed 'us' to clean things up for Him before He returned, then what for would we need Him to return? That alone is arrogant, Jesus is not bound by anything or anyone, He is God and we are NOT. He can do whatever whenever He wants. God does however, honor His Word according to prophetic timelines, etc. The world will be in chaos before He returns. No one can reclaim a fallen world that rejects Christ. The antichrist will rule the world first for 3 and a half years. They need to go back and reread Matthew 24 and Revelation among other things, like 2 Thessalonians 2. (Interesting that their symbol is a pyramid.)

    About that pyramid, it sort of reminds me of the occultic eye and pyramid symbol. Symbols are all over this stuff, many apostate churches and organizations have interesting ones, hidden in plain sight. It is actually an orchestrated scheme via infiltration. (but oh, of course that never happens, right?) Has anyone ever read "New Jerusalem Chronicle" and the section called "wolves in sheep's clothing"? Or "Fanatic for Jesus"?
    There are others but that is a great place to start. Thanks for posting on this stuff. You're definitely 'getting warmer.' Regarding the other comments in the 'Restoration' post, I couldn't think of any other parallels but there are probably more…
    Blessings! ( :

    "He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins." ~Colossians 1:13-14

    I think this is the seven mountains of Revelation 17, but not 18. Babylon is on a plain, and has no mountains, but I think the Roman Church will ultimately relocate there, and join with the NAR as a significant partner.

    There is a city of seven mountains in the Bible, Amman Jordan. Of course it was known as Rabbah, or Rabbat Ammon, in the Old Testament, and it was not mentioned by name in the New Testament, but only mentioned as a part of the Decapolis. Amman, however, was known as Philadelphia, and encompassed seven mountains at the time. This is the second city of the Antichrist, after Babylon.

    We enter God's kingdom when we are born again. But that doesn't bring God's kingdom to earth. We do good works, but that doesn't restore all things. Only Jesus can bring in HIS kingdom and restore all things.

    "So when they had come together, they were asking Him, saying, “Lord, is it at this time You are restoring the kingdom to Israel?” He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or epochs which the Father has fixed by His own authority…" Acts 1; 6-7 Emphasis on YOU [Jesus]. He never denied that it would be Him.

    Again here we see that it is JESUS:

    “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ; and He will reign forever and ever.” And the twenty-four elders, who sit on their thrones before God, fell on their faces and worshiped God, saying, “We give You thanks, O Lord God, the Almighty, who are and who were, because You have taken Your great power and have begun to reign. And the nations were enraged, and Your wrath came, and the time came for the dead to be judged…" Rev. 11; 15-18 Again we see Jesus does it by HIS power. It happens sometime after the two witnesses rise from the dead in Jerusalem.

    Their revivalist dominionist awakening will be ecumenical and that's where the one world religion comes in. All those apostate roads lead to Rome in this case, or at least they all join with Rome. Most cults are prepareing their members for 'the next generation' and some great utopic 'kingdom' and 'awakening' that is just 'around the corner.' Most religions all await their version of a 'messiah,' even islam. I have heard some apostate churches even claiming that the antichrist is a precurser to Christ's return, like a John the baptist, and claiming that anti means 'ante' as in before when it is in fact 'against' and 'opposite' as the bible clearly says. No one protested that twisting and that was 20 years ago, so who knows how easily some will follow a world leader today.

    Then, there is this one that always gets twisted into an end times revival:
    "It will come about after this That I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind…" Joel 2; 28
    as many I'm sure have heard. Their error is in the fact that this was referring to Pentecost, as Peter explains below:
    "For these men are not drunk, as you suppose, for it is only the third hour of the day; but this is what was spoken of through the prophet Joel: ‘And it shall be in the last days,’ God says, ‘That I will pour forth of My Spirit on all mankind; And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, And your young men shall see visions…" Acts 2; 15-17
    Scripture interprets scripture and Peter, in Scripture, has declared that Joel 2; 28 was referring to Pentecost. Pentecost and its activity continue till this day. But there is no special outpouring coming again later. There will be something going on with the 144,000 in Israel but that is another matter.

    The bible does, however, state that in the end times there will be deception and apostasy and that has been fulfilled as well.
    "But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons…" 1 Timothy 4; 1


  11. Evangelina Vigilantee March 11, 2015 at 11:13 pm #

    More apostasy…
    “Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God." 2 Thessalonians 2; 1-4

    Notice that this says we will not be gathered together in the rapture until after the antichrist is revealed. The gathering and the day of the Lord were interchangeable terms. I have seen so many trying to twist this one into a pretzel too, saying that apostasy means something else, etc..

  12. Evangelina Vigilantee March 11, 2015 at 11:20 pm #

    Do you not remember that while I was still with you, I was telling you these things? And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way. Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.” 2 Thessalonians 2; 5-12

  13. Evangelina Vigilantee March 11, 2015 at 11:20 pm #

    Here we see: 1) Jesus slays the antichrist when He returns, 2) the time before His return is no utopia, 3) the antichrist is in power directly before His return, 4) apostasy will be the rule of the day before His return, 5) false signs and wonders will accompany the antichrist, and 6) if you do not receive the love of the truth, you will fall into the strong delusion that is allowed (a different outpouring I guess).
    There are more verses but hopefully these will suffice.

    The 7 mountain mandate is not biblical at all. It is focusing on the temporary things of this world instead of the eternal things of the living God. We should eat and drink and breathe the everlasting word of God, and fix our eyes, hearts, and minds on Jesus Christ, loving our families and those around us thru the Holy Spirit…not media, culture and temporal power.

    The 7 mountain mandate fits in with the eschatology of these deceitful teachers/false prophets(Bethel, Wagner, Joyner) who say that we, as christians, have to usher in the kingdom of God on earth by taking it for Christ, and prepare it for his return. Well, the Bible says the opposite. As the end draws near there will be a falling away of the church by those who are deceived ( 2 Thessalonians 2), and the deceivers are people like this!…and regardless of your position on the rapture, Revelation 13 and Daniel(in several places) makes it clear that the saints on earth during the tribulation will be defeated by the anti christ…until Jesus rolls strong…real strong on a white horse and with his robe dipped in blood(See Revelation 19:11-the end). So all of the Bethel teachings and the C. Peter Wagner teachings are man centered and are designed to get you to focus on this dying world rather than Christ, and to actually accept the antichrist as Jesus. Be warned my brothas…be warned.

    My humble advice: Do not listen to sermons and do not read christian books…ever. Men will fade away like grass…but the word of God endures forever.(1 Peter1:23-25). John 14:26 makes it clear that the Holy Spirit will teach us so why risk putting our minds and hearts in the hands of men when we are warned by Paul with tears(Acts 17) that many false prophets are rising up from AMONGST FELLOW BELIEVERS. Fix your eyes, not on saving this ailing world, but on loving God’s children and preaching the word with great boldness thru the Spirit. I love this website because TFG constantly quotes the word, and he uses the ONLY version that wasn’t perverted by Westcott & Hort in the 1880’s. Peace.

    Your 7Mountains bashing is not a fair reflection of the message and the Bible. If the Gospel of the Kingdom must be preached in EVERY nation and to every Kindred before Christ returns; how do we do that? How do we preach the Gospel in the Middle East where it is banned by the governments? Unless of course, we have INFLUENCE over the governments. My take is; the Purpose of the 7 Mountains teaching is not to usher in world peace as you claim. I have never heard anyone teach that. It is to get believers to the position of Influence that will allow the Gospel to be preached more readily and more easily. In the UK at the moment, you can be prosecuted for saying Islam is of the devil. Why? Because we have governments that are devoid of Christian influence and values. You cannot influence from the bottom of the ladder. Stop wasting your energy fighting other believers; rather try to help fine tune where needed. You cannot throw away the baby with the bath water so to speak. Bless you.
