Over the past 45 years, Dr. Bill Hamon, founder of Christian International Ministries Network (CIMN), has heard the Holy Spirit expressing Christ’s desire to empower God’s people to become influencers in one or more of the 7 Mountains of Culture otherwise referred to as the 7 Spheres of Influence.
Our success depends upon the ability to hear the directive voice of our Heavenly Father and through His Holy Spirit properly implement those directives with His Kingdom principles. The Creator of the Universe has issued an edict: God wants us to be prepared and responsible for fulfilling our destiny in Him. From homemakers to executives, we are all called to be a people who have a role in one or more of these 7 spheres, however having a Kingdom influence is key.
There is a difference between 7 Mountain Influencers and 7 Mountain Kingdom Influencers (7MKI). The first being anyone impactful in society for seemingly good or bad while the second are those Godly influenced people who desire to fulfill a destiny for Kingdom purposes. By including Kingdom in the equation His principles, His goals, His destiny are then the core focus of the influence that the people of God bring. As we are called to fulfill our destiny, in whatever sphere(s) He has called us, it is evident that we cannot do this alone. It is no accident that we are becoming more and more interdependent. God wants to unite His people as they establish the Kingdom of God and fulfill His Great Commission for us and His Kingdom.
The time is at hand when fivefold ministers must unite with those called to be 7 Mountain Influencers to see God’s overall purpose for the church be accomplished. There is a synergistic effect between 7MKI people and fivefold ministers co-laboring together. Each group needs the other to completely fulfill their own destiny in the Lord. Many mind sets must be crushed in order for this to happen. We must be ready for this new challenge and ready to be a part of this powerful move of God.
Jesus paid a great price to set us free in every area of our lives including releasing us from the financial bondage and oppression of the enemy. This is a day when the church and saints are called to arise and be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ as a demonstration on the earth. “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. For whom he foreknew He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son that He might be the firstborn among many brethren” (Romans 8:28-29).
A part of the demonstration that the Lord is releasing in the earth today is believers manifesting miracles through the name, power, and compassion of Jesus Christ. This demonstration of Jesus’ victory includes realms of healing miracles, physical miracles, and financial miracles. The next few pages of this chapter will focus on how we as believers can position ourselves to activate and experience the reality of receiving financial miracles in our lives. Jesus, being moved by compassion, caused miracles to happen when He walked the earth. Believers, being moved with compassion today, will also be those causing miracles to happen. Jesus still desires to demonstrate His victory in our lives in every realm today. This includes the realm of our finances – an integral key in the ability for us as we fulfill our role in the 7 Mountain Kingdom mandate.
It takes money to make things happen. This is a key principle of doing business – in any sphere. As God provides financing in miraculous ways we have the means, not only to continue on in destiny, but also the testimony that lights the way. With God doing it, providing the means, how much greater is the ability to influence those sphere(s) in which we are called to walk?
