Restoring the Apostolic Mandate
Micah 4:1 (KJV) But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it.
We must see that The Lord wants us to raise the Mountain of The House of The Lord ABOVE all other mountains…
We have identified 7 Mountains that Shape Society and Change the Culture… They are:
WHAT IS YOUR APOSTOLIC MANDATE?
YOU NEED TO IDENTIFY YOUR MOUNTAIN…
Joshua 14:6-13 (KJV)
Then the children of Judah came unto Joshua in Gilgal: and Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite said unto him, Thou knowest the thing that the LORD said unto Moses the man of God concerning me and thee in Kadeshbarnea. 7 Forty years old was I when Moses the servant of the LORD sent me from Kadeshbarnea to spy out the land; and I brought him word again as it was in mine heart. 8 Nevertheless my brethren that went up with me made the heart of the people melt: but I wholly followed the LORD my God. 9 And Moses swore on that day, saying, Surely the land whereon thy feet have trodden shall be thine inheritance, and thy children’s forever, because thou hast wholly followed the LORD my God. 10 And now, behold, the LORD hath kept me alive, as he said, these forty and five years, even since the LORD spoke this word unto Moses, while the children of Israel wandered in the wilderness: and now, lo, I am this day fourscore and five years old. 11 As yet I am as strong this day as I was in the day that Moses sent me: as my strength was then, even so is my strength now, for war, both to go out, and to come in. 12 Now therefore give me this mountain, whereof the LORD spake in that day; for thou heardest in that day how the Anakims were there, and that the cities were great and fenced: if so be the LORD will be with me, then I shall be able to drive them out, as the LORD said. 13 And Joshua blessed him, and gave unto Caleb the son of Jephunneh Hebron for an inheritance.
Caleb knew which Mountain was his and he claimed it… Then Joshua BLESSED him!
AS I SAID, YOU NEED TO IDENTIFY YOUR MOUNTAIN
THEN, YOU NEED TO GO TO THE APOSTLES AND CLAIM YOUR MOUNTAIN
AND THE APOSTLES WILL BLESS YOU
IDENTIFY YOUR MOUNTAIN! MAKE YOUR CLAIM LEGAL! THEN TAKE YOUR MOUNTAIN!
Let’s look at a practical side to the 7 Mountains to help you identify your mountain…
- Fight Poverty
- Freedom of Religion
- Legal Justice
- Spread the Word of God
- Arts & Entertainment
- Encourage the Culture of the Kingdom
- Empower people through knowledge
- Create Safe places for Children to grow up
- Get the Truth of God’s Word out and Save Souls
You may ask: “How do I know what my mountain is?”
There is a way to identify your mountain and it’s so simple that many people will overlook it. Apostle John Kelly, my Spiritual Father said to me a long time ago something along these lines:
Just look at what you like because God wired you the way you are and you like what He placed into you. And, then start to identify what you love and are passionate about! That will narrow the list of possible callings down for you. Then, the last thing is to identify what you hate… Once you identify what you love and what you hate you should be able to see what you’re called to.
For example, if you love helping people and cannot stand injustice you may be called to the Mountain of Government and find yourself called to work in the area of the Law. Helping people who have committed some sort of crime “Re-Enter” society may be your calling.
Or, if you are a stay at home Mom it’s easy to see your Mountain is Family. You are called to raise up the next Generation of Overcomers for Christ!
How about your passion being theatre or acting? You’re mountain is Arts/Entertainment. Get in there and influence Society by writing or acting in things that will bring Godliness to the public.
SO, WHAT IS YOUR MOUNTAIN?
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR YOU TO TAKE IT???
Exodus 23:28-30 (KJV) 28 And I will send hornets before thee, which shall drive out the Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite, from before thee. 29 I will not drive them out from before thee in one year; lest the land become desolate, and the beast of the field multiply against thee. 30 Little by little will I drive them out from before thee, until thou be increased, and inherit the land.
DON’T WORRY ABOUT HOW LONG IT WILL TAKE…
JUST DON’T GIVE UP!
It’s important that you are Apostolically Aligned as you go for your mountain. Remember that Caleb went to the Apostle of the House of Israel to get Blessed!
You need to go to the Man of God over your life and get your blessing too!
