The Mountain of Arts & Entertainment

May 20th, 2011

The following article was contributed by Tony Hoyt:

Our desire is for God’s people (Aglow) to rise up as never before in taking back the Mountain of Arts and Entertainment:   For the world to see the expression of the creativity of God in all the art forms, from music to films, from television to books, from plays to fashion, to all forms of celebration in the arts.

Johnny Enlow states in his book, The Seven Mountain Mantle, I saw in a vision that the Lord has a whole treasure trove of golden movies available for His sons and daughters to access.  This treasure trove contains some of the best stories ever told to humanity.  There are epic stories of incredible adventure, romance, danger, and mystery – but all told from heaven’s standpoint and with heaven’s purposes.  The eyes of the Lord will begin to find those who are coming into Him and discovering the treasures of His heart.  The world cannot compete with the stories that will begin to be downloaded by His Josephs on this mountain.   This is the mountain where He will really show off.  This is the mountain where He will release amazing glory.

The world is ready and waiting for God’s people to take this mountain back.  Two examples are:

The film Secretariat, released in 2010, was a true story of a Triple Crown winner.  Secretariat was one of the greatest race horses in history.   The movie opened with Joel 2: 4-5 being quoted. Their appearance is like the appearance of horses; And like swift steeds, so they run.  With a noise like chariots over mountaintops they leap; Like the noise of a flaming fire that devours the stubble; Like a strong people set in battle array. (NKJV)

Another example is the popularity of the music of Susan Boyle. Her golden voice melted our hearts as she so wonderfully sang Amazing Grace and How Great Thou Art.  Interestingly, this CD sold over a million.  It hit the charts as the number one album and remained at the top of the charts for several weeks.  People want good music and good movies!

It has been disappointing to see the decline in the material being offered in movies, television, music, fashion and other art forms.   For example, the first four letter word used in an epic film was, Gone with the Wind.  The word was mild compared to what is being spoken in the films and television today.

Another example was the release of the movie Midnight Cowboy, in the 1970’s.  It was the first X-rated movie.  At that time X-rated meant that no one under 18 years of age was allowed to view the film.  By the standards of today, this film would be considered a G-rated movie. There was only one scene that had a hint of behavior that would not be acceptable to all viewers.  What made this movie X-rated is now accepted by today’s standard even for small children to watch on television.

In the music industry, the influence of MTV is promoting all kinds of immorality and violence and is yet another example of decline.

Acts 2: 1-2 Speaks about a sound coming from heaven that filled the whole house.  We want a sound from heaven to come to us in this hour that would impact the generations and the world.

May God’s people rise up as never before to take this important mountain of influence around the world.


  • Pray that God’s people will produce movies, art, literature and other forms of celebration, the Lord’s way, by being in His Presence and letting His creativity flow through them.
  • Pray that God’s people will let their voice be heard in the market place as they financially support Godly movies, music, art, sports, and entertainment
  • Pray that the God’s people will value and pursue the creative gifts that God has given them for His glory on earth.
  • Pray that the world will recognize outstanding films and other art forms.  One example is, “Movie Guide Awards,” a Christian based Hollywood awards gala, honoring actors, producers and films that bring honor to God and family.
  • Pray that God’s people will be the head and not the tail in leading the world in arts and entertainment.
  • Pray that we will be the army referred to in Joel 2: 2,7,8,11, destined to destroy the works of the enemy.
  • Pray for the sound of heaven that will come to earth and invigorate an entire generation.

Enlow says,  Before Jesus returns, He will showcase the glory of His inheritance in His saints.  He makes surpassing greatness of power available for those who will believe that He wants to do this.  Jesus manifesting in His children is the next great show on planet earth.  Christ in you is the hope of glory He wants the world to see what He looks like coming out of us.

His Kingdom is joy, peace and righteousness in the Holy Spirit…come on earth through arts and entertainment that will capture the bridegroom’s heart so He will return for that bride.

Eph 1: 18-19  His bride, male and female, will give glory to the bridegroom in his and her clothing hat

Broadway – pray that we will produce plays that honor families….like Sound of Music or Lion King

Let’s once again fill Broadway with productions that will honor God and family,

God’s people (Aglow) will rise up as it has never risen up before to take this important mountain.

    I was stirred by Tony’s comment about the movie, Secretariat, because it reminded me of how God uses movies to speak through. In this way, movies can, and are, prophetic venues used by God. For instance, Paul Keith Davis talks about the horse, Secretariat, and his amazing life and races climaxing as a Triple Crown winner. Not only did Secretariat win the Triple Crown races, but when he crossed the finish line he was still accelerating. When this horse died, an autopsy showed that he had a 22 pound heart, nearly 3 times the size of a normal horse of his stature. As the Veterinarian said, he won because he had a bigger engine. Paul Keith said that God spoke prophetically to him from this saying that He was raising up people with enlarged hearts, those who could not only run the race with ease, but who had enlarged capacities for more of God – and more of what God loves… greater capacity to receive revelation than ever before… David said, “I will run the way of Thy commandments for thou hast enlarged my heart.” God is bringing forth in this generation champions with enlarged hearts who will not just be anointed, but who will be God occupied. Isaiah 60:1-5 speaks of the end of the Age and the light-filled Body of Yeshua: “Arise and shine – for your light has come….Lift your eyes all around, and SEE…then you shall SEE and become radiant (full of revelatory knowledge and understanding). and your HEART shall SWELL with joy… ” AMEN!

    Thank You Tony; Your heart is evident in your writings, and I know without a doubt that God brought you into Janes life and Aglows life at just the right time. You are Awesome. We all Love You!
    We’ll see you soon in Southern Calif. at our West Coast Conference. The Theme is God’s idea and speaks to each one individually as they read it or hear it “The Intimate Sound of Image Transfer!” It causes them to see or hear prophetically. We’re asking attendees to paint or draw what they See, or write what they Hear, and put them into a frame. Then bring it with them to the Conference to be displayed to all attending. I believe these will speak volumes to hearts for Healing or Transformations unlike we have yet experienced. It is exciting to be a part of what God is doing in this day through the Gift of Prophetic Arts! Again Thank You! Your Eternal Friend Nellie

    Reading this article captures the imagination. The sights and sounds from heaven expressed creatively through God’s people on a unprecedented scale, would be awe-inspiring. I’d never thought of 1 Cor 2:9 and Romans 8:19 as involving the creative arts.

    Just now discovered this blog and want to comment on the importance of what Tony is bringing out. Well said, and so critical for our times.

    Although you can’t go back to any songs, you can skip songs, mark them as ones you like or dislike, and browse the names, bands, and CD the song is on of all the songs that have played already. Another thing you’ll need is
    some strength to endure, because there’s a good chance you’ll be your own producer for the show or perhaps the best
    producer the show has. These include the artist-branded music channels such as The Grateful
    Dead Channel, Eminem’s Shade 45, Jimmy Buffett’s Radio
    Margaritaville; there is even the classical music Metropolitan Opera Radio channel.
