We have been writing a lot about the rise of the Dominionists like Lou Engle and Cindy Jacobs within the traditional Religious Right movement and paying close attention to the influence of Seven Mountains theology, which is the idea that Christians are called upon to gain control of the seven key aspects of culture (government, media, business, education, etc…) in order to unleash God’s kingdom on Earth and bring about the return of Jesus Christ.
One of the key proponents of this Seven Mountains theology is Lance Wallnau who, thank to Jim Garlow, has become more involved in the political aspects of the Religious Right movement through Garlow’s Pray and ACT effort.
Earlier this month Cindy Jacobs and Generals International hosted a three hour webcast that featured Wallnau, as well as New Apostolic Reformation godfather C. Peter Wagner, during which Wallnau laid out how Christians are supposed to gain control over these mountains through both “overt” and “covert” means …. and those little upside-down horseshoe things floating above the 7 mountains on the white board represent the gates of Hell though which same-sex marriage, abortion, and Islam are attacking America:
You go all the way down into the family mountain. Now you’ve got family and you’ve got same-sex marriage being fought. What’s up with that? Well, it’s another one of these hellish blocking of truth here, bringing through the gate a belief system that whatever form of sexuality you’re into is legitimately, constitutionally protected.
Well, while you’re doing that, through the religious gate here you’ve got Islam invading the United States. So you’ve got your homosexual activity, your abortion activity here, Islam coming in, you’ve got a financial collapse – all of this, to those of us who are Christians, is an apocalyptic confirmation that when you remove God from public discourse, when you don’t line up your thinking with kingdom principles, you inevitably hit an iceberg like the Titanic and you go down.
We want to be able to bring kingdom principles and values into every one of those spheres, realizing that the kingdom can move both in the over proclamation of truth and in the covert instruction of principles.
So here’s what I’m saying: believers need to start to move into the high places where they’re going to come up against the gates of hell. We will, I guarantee you, come up against the gates of hell because when a believer comes into these high places, he comes head into – boom – the principles that are working there. And when you hit a wrong principle, listen to me, when you hit a wrong principle you hit a principality.
And when you hit a principality and you succeed in that conflict, watch what happens, you open up a portal, you open up a pathway so that light can come in. And this is exactly what we need now – we need Heaven to come invade Earth and bring, through portals, new leadership.
And if you are impressed by that presentation, The Oak Initiative is hosting a “Power Communications Seminar” with Wallnau, Rick Joyner, & Jerry Boykin later this month that you can attend for the bargain price of $900.
