The Seven Mountains of Influence | Lance Wallnau
 
Recap
Lance Wallnau is well known for his revelation of the “Seven Mountains of Influence” and how these mountains of influence shape and change the world. He preached about how God is calling the church to make disciples of nations. And in order to do that, we need strong, territorial churches that are raising up believers to go out and become the “head and not the tail.” Lance basically taught on the same thing at all three services but much of the information he shared in each service differed. So in light of that, if you want to hear his full message, it would be beneficial for you to listen to all three messages.
 
Dive Deeper
 
We’re living in a time of history where God is inviting us to explore territory that is further than the map we’ve had up until how. This requires “risk taking.” Faith sometimes is risk taking. You have to step out on what God has shown you even when you don’t have all the information at the time of stepping out.
 
Right now, the Lord is giving us grace in order to recover the territory that we need to recover!
 
The seven mountains of influence are domains in which Satan literally seeks to have occupation.
 
Satan wants to have authority at the top of these institutions. To get control of these institutions, he plants people inside these institutions—people that are in agreement with him.
 
To do that, the enemy promotes his people in order to have more influence in Hollywood… more influence on Wall Street… more influence in the White House. Etcetera.
 
The enemy puts his own “counterfeit eldership at the gates” because if he can get agreement with him, he can bring hell to earth.
 
In the same way, if God can get his church to agree with Him, He can bring heaven to earth.
 
So that’s the battle!
 
The battle is at the gates. Mr. Wallnau calls this the “gates of influence.” The gates of influence are where the gates of hell target. If Satan can get a majority on the Supreme Court, they’ve got all the leverage they need to influence the rest of the substructure. For that reason, there’s always a battle over who’s at the top of the mountain, who’s at the gates of influence.
 
Read About It
 
Psalms 2:1–4, “Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves,
And the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying, “Let us break Their bonds in pieces and cast away Their cords from us.” He who sits in the heavens shall laugh…”
 
Discussion Questions
 
Do you understand the concept of the Seven Mountains of Influence?
 
Do you believe all believers are called to do their part in this great end time work?
 
Do you know what you are called of God to do? If yes, what is it?

2024 Prayer and Presence Conference | Heidi Baker, Joseph Harris, and Leif Hetland

Demonstrations of the presence of God were manifested at The Prayer and Presence Conference this past weekend. Guest speakers Heidi Baker, Joseph Harris, and Leif Hetland shared what was on their hearts, and a definite theme came forth—we are at the threshold of a great awakening to God. The flames for world evangelism were ignited by three different videos: 1) an update on Living Word’s church planting mission, 2) a video of how Iris Global Ministries is in the midst of violence and persecution, yet they bravely continue their work, and 3) a video of a great outpouring of God’s Spirit in Asia!

Grace Unveiled: How to Get a Reprobate Mind #4 | Jim Hammond

Pastor Jim gave his fourth installment in his series entitled, “Grace Unveiled,” with the subtitle being “How to Get a Reprobate Mind.” This is a series on the book of Romans, a book considered to be the greatest writing of Christian doctrine in all the Bible. Pastor Jim says it has multiple themes on redemption. It touches on our inability to work for the favor of God, the guilt that we have to deal with on a daily basis, and the fact that salvation is only to be received by believing. Romans 1: 24–32 is the subject of this message.

FOCUS FOR EFFECT: Love | Mac Hammond

Pastor Mac taught the third installment of his series entitled, “Focus on Effect,” based upon 2nd Corinthians 4:17, “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.” The apostle Paul said the hardships in our lives can be light and momentary. It all depends on what we place our focus upon. Paul says we are to focus our attention on what is eternal, rather than what is temporal. There are three things that are eternal: faith, hope, and love. We are to focus on that.

FOCUS FOR EFFECT: Hope | Mac Hammond

This series is all about focus, meaning where do you give your attention. This is important because whatever you give your attention to will determine how hard or difficult your life will be. And conversely, it will determine how easy and carefree it will be. Teaching on 1st Corinthians 13:13, Pastor Mac says you can gain the clarity you need to succeed in your life by focusing on matters of faith, hope, and love.

Focus on Effect | Mac Hammond

Pastor Mac began a new series entitled, “Focus on Effect.” He started off by telling us the topic of the new series is something we probably think we already know about, but in fact, we don’t know enough about it as we probably should. The scriptural reference was 2nd Corinthians 4:17–18: “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory. While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.” Though Pastor Mac has taught on this passage before, he said he’s “gotten a glimpse of a different side of this mountain. And I’m seeing it from a perspective that has really impacted me in a positive way.” He added, “And I want it to be that way for you all as well.”
