Let His Truth Reign

A teaching that the New Apostolic Reformation is really promoting is called the 7 mountains. If you haven't already heard of this teaching, you will. For an in depth look, be sure to follow the links in the articles.

RECLAIM 7 Mountains in Culture
An article by Mark Pfeifer was mentioned in one of the above articles. Here is the link to that article: THE DOMINION PROCESS
IN SUMMARY: If you did not know the agenda behind the 7 mountains teaching, you would probably think it was wonderful. Who of us doesn't think that more Christians should be in leadership positions? Remember the Latter Rain (Dominionist) doctrine is purify the earth so Jesus will come back.
EXCERPT: The Seven Mountain "mandate" of Dominionism has become a widespread teaching in the evangelical world. Many of its supporters aren't fully aware of how dark the full-blown Dominionist agenda truly is. One of the common denominators for Dominionists is the belief that the church should change the world - not just impact the world as salt and light, but actually control the world, particularly the government. This theology has deep roots in church history, and has attached itself to every aspect of modern Christianity.
My Comment: It is shocking when you see the whole picture.
EXCERPT: Have you heard the new name NAR proponents have come up with for their movement? Yes, the new New Apostolic Reformation (a term coined by the late C. Peter Wagner), is now hoping to go by "INC."
INK is the acronym for “Independent Network Charismatic,” also known as Signs and Wonders, 7 Mountains, Kingdom Now, and a host of other names. The movement has been re-branded a number of times to distance itself from the original: Latter Rain Movement. But don't kid yourself; it's the same old ancient lie
Recently an article over at Christianity Today (not recommended as a discernment source), featured an interview with the authors of an NAR book, The Rise of Network Christianity: How Independent Leaders Are Changing the Religious Landscape. Brad Christerson and Richard Flory explain this movement as a "Quiet Revolution" that has attracted millions of followers with promises of direct access to God through signs and wonders.
In the interview, the two explain how “INC” Christianity, has become one of the fastest-growing faith groups in the United States. Apostles like Bill Johnson, Mike Bickle, Cindy Jacobs, Chuck Pierce, and Ché Ahn claim millions of followers. They’re also aided by an army of fellow ministers who fall under their “spiritual covering:”
"Many of these apostles run megachurches, including Bethel Church in Redding California, HRock Church in Pasadena, and the International House of Prayer (IHOP) in Kansas City. But their real power lies in their innovative approach to selling faith. They’ve combined multi-level marketing, Pentecostal signs and wonders, and post-millennial optimism to connect directly with millions of spiritual customers. That allows them to reap millions in donations, conference fees, and book and DVD sales. And because these INC apostles claim to get direction straight from God, they operate with almost no oversight.
Christianity Today: "How do the people in this group identify themselves? Are they Pentecostals? Charismatics? INC Christians?"
