THE SEVEN MOUNTAINS OF INFLUENCE PART 2
In the first part of this article, we discussed the concept of the seven mountains of influence and explained the first two mountains. We recommend that you read the first part here first before reading this one.
The following mountains will be discussed today:
• The Mountain of Politics and Governance
• The Mountain of Media (Influence, mind and control systems)
• The Mountain of Arts & Entertainment
• The Mountain of Religion
• The Mountain of Economy and Business
3. THE MOUNTAIN OF POLITICS AND GOVERNANCE
The leaders of a nation influence the morals, directions, and lifestyle of the nation directly. This is seen even in scripture looking at the Judges and Kings that led God’s people.
Every decision a leader makes affects the followers. This mountain is one that somehow impacts all the other mountains. If God and His principles are taken out of the governing of a nation, the nation is already doomed.
Believers in politics and governance must raise the banner of Christ high and uphold righteousness.
4. The Mountain of Media (Influence, mind and control systems)
The mountain of media used to be restricted to sources like TV, news paper, and radios. But now, it is way wider than that. With the advent of social media, information is now widely spread all over the world every second. Media is vast and unstoppable. Anyone has the ability to start an online platform and influence the minds of people in whatever direction they wish to.
Every news you hear or read is a product of someone’s mind and compilation. It may not be a holistic view of the situation. This is how powerful the media is.
Believers who are called to this mountain as writers, reporters, speakers, and so on must be willing to speak and share the wisdom of God through Christian media and by going into the secular media as well. Other believers must be ready to support, promote, and share the right information on media.
5. THE MOUNTAIN OF ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT
Humans are social beings and love to be entertained in one way or the other.
Social media, arts shows, music, filmmaking, and so on are a natural part of the lives of people.
This mountain is one that believers must not shy away from because it can not be avoided. More so, the devil is not ignoring this mountain. He is infiltrating it with vices like immorality, substance abuse, alcohol, and so on.
Christians must receive grace from God to work on their talents and explore the arts and entertainment sphere.
6. THE MOUNTAIN OF RELIGION
There are different forms and types of beliefs in the world today. Many people continue to delve into and practice strange and very weird rituals due to their belief in certain superior beings.
The church of Christ Jesus must not relent in sharing the Gospel to all and sundry.
7. THE MOUNTAIN OF ECONOMY AND BUSINESS
God is interested in our economy and wealth as individuals and as a nation. The economy of a nation affects many things and God has put innate abilities in us to create wealth and multiply it. The church must train more Kingdom -minded believers who are gifted for business, and the marketplace to rise in this mountain and become leaders with the fear of God, diligence, honesty, and integrity.
