Releasing Kings Into the Marketplace
Releasing Kings into the Marketplace
Revelation 5:10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
In the mighty name of Jesus, I declare that according to:
Isaiah 49:23 “Kings will be your guardians, And their princesses your nurses They will bow down to you with their faces to the earth And lick the dust of your feet; And you will know that I am the LORD; Those who hopefully wait for Me will not be put to shame.
I also declare in the mighty name of Jesus:
Genesis 17:6 I will make you exceedingly fruitful, and I will make nations of you, and kings will come forth from you.
Proverbs 3:6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight.
What is your Role as a King
• To have Influence and strategically control the place of influence
• To have and operate in your authority
• To Control resources – be a good steward
• To be a change agent
• To transform nations to reflect the Kingdom
In Hebrew the words king (melek) designates the person who holds supreme authority over a nation or city.
Kings made great achievements by organizing and controlling resources (including manpower) on a large scale.
Kings often built temples, fortified cities, and mustered armies for war. These activities were aimed at benefitting the community as a whole
Justice was a major responsibility
Kings were often depicted as the defenders of orphans and widows, that is, of people who lacked a man to argue their case.
KINGSHIP IN THE HEBREW BIBLE
Saul is mighty warrior, Solomon a great builder. The king’s role as judge, and as the advocate of the helpless, is described enthusiastically in Psalm 72. There, it is clear that his struggle for “justice” (Hebrew mišpaṭ) ensures more than just lawfulness; it brings peace and fertility, habitability, to his land.
He was responsible to Yahweh, who had chosen him. The king is the vicegerent (ruler’s administrative deputy) and servant to God – And so are you!
Duties of the King
The king was held responsible for all Israel as the Lord’s people. He/she (YOU) are Yahweh’s anointed.
I would admonish you according to the following:
1 Kings 2:3″Keep the charge of the LORD your God, to walk in His ways, to keep His statutes, His commandments, His ordinances, and His testimonies, according to what is written in the Law of Moses, that you may succeed in all that you do and wherever you turn
Also, note that according to:
Proverbs 29:4 The king gives stability to the land by justice, But a man who takes bribes overthrows it.
Proverbs 29:14 If a king judges the poor with truth, His throne will be established forever.
Your Kingly Purpose in the Marketplace
In 1975, Bill Bright, Loren Cunningham, and Francis Schaeffer was given a divine message:
The 7 mountains are 7 sectors in society that mold the way we think, that is our culture is shaped by these spheres or mountains. Society is changed/transformed through all 7 mountains. The Kingdom of God encompasses all 7 of the mountains.
The 7 mountains that influence society
1. The mountain of family: where either the blessing or curse is passed on to successive generations
2. The mountain of religion: where people worship God in spirit and truth or settle for a religious ritual
3. The mountain of education: where truths or lies about God and His creation are taught
4. The mountain of government: where evil is either restrained or endorsed.
5. The mountain of media: where information is interpreted through the lens of good or evil.
6. The mountain of arts and entertainment: where values and virtue are celebrated or distorted
And the one mountain they all depend on — the mountain that fuels and funds all the other mountains:
7. The mountain of business (commerce, science & technology), which fuels and funds all the other mountains — where people build for the glory of God or the glory of man; where resources are consecrated for the kingdom of God or captured for the powers of darkness. Those who lead this mountain control what influences our culture.
In order to transform cities, regions and nations, we Christians need to capture and rule the 7 mountains that shape each area’s culture.
Ezekiel 22:30 “And I searched for a man among them who should build up the wall and stand in the gap before Me for the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one.
Are you the one? Are you accepting the call to stand in the gap for Kenya?
If we want to experience the transference of wealth for the transformation of your cities and Kenya, we need to take back the mountain of business thereby influencing and bringing healing to these breaches.
God has a strategy for transforming society; it is through the marketplace/workplace, in each of these mountains. “Those people who occupy the high places have the influence”
The Lord has called each of us to be excellent in what we do. Those whom God used in the Kingdom as marketplace ministers were skilled and exemplified excellence in their field. Not only were these men skilled, they were filled with God’s Spirit.
Some of the disciples who Chris chose were fishermen, as well as a tax collector, a treasurer, and a doctor
Deuteronomy 1:8 All of this is the land which I, the LORD, promised to give to your ancestors, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and to their descendants.
Go and occupy it. Know that BEYOND SALVATION IS OCCUPATION
Doing Kingdom business Until He comes
Doing Business for Jesus (Luke 19:11-27)
This is a season of transition – for the sake of the gospel. It is time for God’s people to walk in their calling, anointing, and deliverance. It is time for obedience and operating without fear. It is time to take the territory that God has given you.
This is an appointed time, a divine time when God is calling His people to action, to move on His command, and to strategically position themselves to perform Kingdom business.
What is Kingdom business?
Kingdom Business is a business dedicated to serving the Lord and His Kingdom.
Jesus said at twelve years old “I must be about My Father’s business” (Matthew 3:12). God is in the business of people.
I too challenge you to be about your Heavenly Father’s business. Go forth after this day and rule in your authority as Kings in the marketplace!
