Pioneers and Shaking
Abbotsford – My heart is still soaring over a conference at Global Harvest Centre this last weekend. We found a church and leadership team queued up to release some Kings. It felt strategic and impactful. We’ll hear a lot more from them in the future. Whenever we get to share, we also get to hear some thing the Holy Spirit is emphasizing. So… I’m dedicating this newsletter to the pioneers that are cracking into new areas during a season of shaking in both the church and the economy. Times of transition are exciting for Kings because new things are formed and new initiatives are taken. They love change and are often either the instigators or the beneficiaries of the new direction.
What’s God Doing? – I’d like to suggest in this season that the answer is, “God is doing nothing.” He’s really waiting for God’s people to accept the responsibility and seize the initiative to build the Kingdom. We’ve been programmed to wait for God or to wait for the leadership of our church to define a new program. Jesus is inviting individuals to pursue their heart’s desire. He flattening the organization to relate more directly with you and I. We’re hearing a new sound; feeling a new pull into a great adventure where our part is important.
More specifically – The bigger scheme is getting Christians to pursue the influence and leadership of our society (the seven mountains)… education, government, media, the arts and business. Where does it start for individuals? We have to choose to be the head and not the tail. Once we give ourselves permission to be successful, and have influence and wealth to touch those mountains, we have to decide where to start. Here is the easiest way to get the first bite on a big assignment – making disciples of all nations. We have to learn how to multiply finances. It’s a spiritual discipline tied to our heart’s desire. It’s also an adventure, a learning process, and a lot of fun. Having your financial cup run over facilitates your ministry. Learning to convert money into ministry is a total hoot!
Exhibit A – I love to befriend and interview Kings that are already pioneering the next move. Greg Dalessandri is a successful, spirit-filled day trader. He trades S&P 500 futures over the internet. He’s not only cracked the wealth barrier personally, he’s got a vision to bring a generation up to his same level. He’s using webinars and conference calls to train believers all over the world. He’s got 300 graduates already and he’s currently working with 150 on a daily basis. He’s a pioneer, exactly in the middle of what God is up to right now. Take a minute to read his interview – you’ll be blessed.
Here’s the model – God is using mentors to equip Kings to make and handle wealth. It could be real estate, day trading, business starts, inventions… the point is that equipping the saints now includes a brand new dimension – multiplying wealth. It’s the key that unlocks the mission field in the other mountains. It’s also the easiest discipline to start with. Did you hear that? It’s easy to make money!
Note: Why is it easy to make money? Glad you asked. It’s something Jesus made provision for on the cross. It’s part of our redemptive provision. Take a look at our prior newsletter a few weeks back – Is Prosperity In the Atonement? The answer is yes!
For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich. 2 Cor 8:9 NIV
Networking – One of the secrets to learning to multiply finances is networking. Wealthy people always have a networks of friends that share opportunities. They know one another’s strengths and share ideas. Christians commonly feel the prophetic pull to do something but lack the wisdom and connections to pick the right thing. The safety net is that your first venture into multiplying wealth should be through a mentor that has already done it and has found you a low-risk move with a high return. Hopefully we’ll teach the principles in church someday, but the mentor will probably be operating outside the priestly equipping process; he’ll be a King.
What’s next? –
1) Sort through the theological permission process to see if you’re willing to try. Releasing Kings and Desire to Destiny are designed to do that. Read them. Our conferences have the same impact as well. Start dreaming.
2) Pick an area of interest that fits your budget and availability.
3) Pick up the phone are start down the path. Find your Greg! We’re trying to develop a smorgasbord with a wide range of choices. Our interview page is one forum to do that. The relationships you already have and your phone are the tools you need to find your divine appointments.
