“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” – Ephesians 6:12
After many years of learning about leading a Kingdom business and consulting with businesses, I have found that most Kingdom business people are well versed with the practical side of business, but lack understanding and insight of the power of the spiritual side. Here are some aspects that need to be considered:
• Christian business do not only have to deal with the natural issues, but there is also an unseen enemy that is fighting against our success.
• A kingdom business is not only about making money for the Kingdom, but partnering with God in the spirit to accomplish great supernal works.
• Learning to walk in the spirit and not fulfilling the lust of the flesh or letting the cares of the world silence our testimony of Jesus.
• Walking in the fruit of the spirit, showing love to all men, and thereby revealing the nature of Christ.
• Having to deal with pride, self-centered desires, and practices. Selfish ambition has a way of sneaking in without us knowing it, then it is all about what we are doing for God and not about what He is wanting to do through us.
• Praying is only one aspect, but spending time in the spirit to hear heaven’s plans and purposes is vital to see supernatural interventions.
• Knowing that a kingdom business is only a vehicle for the Master’s use and to accomplish His plans.
Spiritual laws govern the Kingdom
There are spiritual laws that govern the Kingdom. In most cases where I have seen Kingdom businesses battling, or finding a sudden change of fortunes, I have found that they have violated a Kingdom law and thereby opened themselves to the attack of the enemy. When we deal with the spiritual component, I have seen many immediate financial turnarounds in companies. We need to be aware that we have an invisible enemy coming against us to try and destroy our testimony, but our God it always greater and we will prevail.
