The 7 mountains mandate:
This began in the 1970s as a prophetic word from Loren Cunningham ( YWAM) about spheres of influence… it has grown & mutated over the years & several people have picked it up & run away with it Oz Hillman, Lance Wallnau & Michael Maiden have written books on it as several others have done… basically this teaching is about the Christian using his gifting & skill set to promote & activate revival throughout society To produce an almost perfected Christian World before Christ returns. It covers all areas of society really Governmental/ /Education/ Entertainments/ media/ the family/business/religion.. . they will tell you it is all about loving people through influence… but in reality it is an endtime strategy that fits with the above point & it is dominionism… (militant christianity) More interestingly the New Age movement is after the same goals of a better loving caring world on a mass scale through some strategy… I havent done enough research on it yet but I know it does exist & will in time link up with the New World Order which we know prepares the way for the Anti-Christ… This is a very heavy subject & there are others who have done far much more research than me.
Anyhow, the point is the Church is being led down a rabbit trail with this right now… the Bible does not speak of an end time strategy that is to be adopted… If it was that important to the scheme of things I think we may have had a basic outline of it in scripture….
Bethel also believes in an Apostleship for the Town or area.. Global Legacy ( Bethel – facilitated by Paul Mainwaring is all for this end)
My mandate: Preach the Gospel… Christ Crucified with signs & wonders following... so that many will come to know the living God… see Revival ( if we wish to give it a term) will take care of it self…
Bethel teaches that all are Royalty in the kingdom… BSSM students are knighted with swords & given a checklist to determine how much they see themselves as royalty… absolutely self indulgent.
