HERE IS HELP TO GROW YOUR KINGDOM BUSINESS

One of the organisations I wholeheartedly endorse is Business Greenhouse. This is the fourth video in the series by Wez Hone: it is on building systems in your business and getting out of debt . You need to watch all four. Be blessed.

Wez Hone has a gift and calling from God to help business people grow successful Kingdom businesses. What do I mean by a Kingdom business. It is one where the owner knows God, and whose business and working life is increasingly an outward manifestation of an inward walk of faith, motivated by God’s love. They are people who have been released from striving for success through their own strength. They are building their working life and business on the rock – Psalm 127:1 & Matthew 7:24-27.

Are you are longing to serve God in your professional life and see His Kingdom manifest through you?

Are you yearning to understand more of how to apply God’s word, His Yes and His ways and be led by the Holy Spirit?

Looking to gain a clearer prophetic understanding of our times, its agenda and God’s purposes?

If you are then you need to contact me and let me connect you with the people and organisations which can help you. May I also suggest you buy a copy of my book Build a Kingdom Business – Empowered by the Holy Spirit. It is available as an eBook on Amazon or trade paper back by sending me an email on ron@bakb.com.au – cost AUS$10.00 incl postage in Australia.

I recently attended an ICCC Conference in Athens entitled Possessing The Land – It’s Time! We believe that it is a new season for ICCC when the Lord is calling us to possess the land. The manna (wilderness) season is over. It’s time to possess the land as did the Israelite’s but there are many battles ahead and one dimension of this for us is to identify the personal and collective Jericho’s of our time! We have to advance through Godly strategy and wisdom by His grace!

The ICCC International Board are convinced that our calling to business and the working life has great significance at this time in history. The Lord says to us through Ezekiel 12:28

“None of My words will be postponed any more, but the word which I speak will be done!”

  • To possess your promised land, you must begin to see yourself as God sees you.
  • To possess our promised land our thinking and believing must be, we are well able, for the Lord is with us.
  • To possess your promised land you must “tread upon it” but guided constantly by the Holy Spirit and meditating on God’s Word.
  • To possess the land , we must sanctify ourselves – it’s not about you; it’s ALL about Him
  • To possess the land we must hear from God and discover His strategy for crossing over, and for taking Jericho.
  • To possess the land we must fully obey the instructions of our Lord. When we listen, God speaks. When we obey, God acts! We must take a step of faith – driven by love!

If you want to receive strategy for how to possess your land can I suggest you consider joining ICCC. Check out the website www.iccc.net or contact me on ron@bakb.com.au

Ensure GOD is in control of your business

Benham-Brothers-2-x400
Benham Brothers testify how God helped them to start a Real Estate company after they got fired.
In a recent post on their website the brothers revealed that their company, Benham Real Estate, was born out of a painful firing more than a decade ago, which left them without jobs. They then reminded Christians through Scripture that
God’s plan is usually far greater that man’s plan.

Benham Real Estate is now a full service real estate company that specializes in selling bank owned properties. The real estate division, Benham REO Group, has about 100 offices in 35 states across the United States, according to the brothers’ Facebook page
“When the tables have turned in life, we need to realize that God owns the tables. He always has a plan and it’s far greater than any plan we could ever come up with. It may be hard and painful to understand at the time, but God’s ways are always best,” began the brothers in the post. The twins then highlighted the adversity that resulted in their successful real estate company.

“Twelve years ago, before my brother and I started our real estate group, we worked for a large company that went through a horrific split. The split found us on the wrong side of the fence, so we got fired. Although we were heartbroken and had no other jobs lined up, God used that to force us to start our own company,” noted the post. “For two years we scratched and clawed to make enough money to feed our budding families, all-the-while building our little real estate company. Well, the rest is pretty much history, as God has blessed our little venture supernaturally, even to a point where HGTV offered to do a show based upon our real estate expertise,” they added.

Now that they have lost that initial HGTV offer, the brothers believe that the adversity they went through before prepared them for the fallout with HGTV. “God had already prepared us long ago for a situation just like this. All we need to do is remember that he owns the tables, and when they turn He is up to something good! “When the tables turn in your situation, don’t try to flip them back to where they were, just let it play itself out. Recognize that God Himself is the One who owns the tables. He’s got you right where He wants you!” ended the post.

The Benham Brothers, whose planned reality show was cancelled because of their conservative views on homosexuality, were dropped by SunTrust Bank this week. The brothers believe it is part of a move to silence Christian views in the marketplace.
“If our faith costs us our HGTV show and our business, then so be it,” Jason said.

David Benham said they were “caught off-guard” when SunTrust pulled all of its listed properties with the Benham brothers and several franchisees across the U.S.  “This came without warning or explanation from SunTrust and took place over a 15 minute period on May 15, 2014,” the brothers noted. SunTrust corporate spokesman Mike McCoy did not specify whether the brothers’ conservative views were behind the decision.

Earlier in May, the brothers’ planned HGTV show “Flip It Forward,” which was going to be about the brothers flipping houses for profit and helping other families do the same, was cancelled. HGTV’s decision came after website Right Wing Watch published a post labeling David as an “anti-gay, anti-choice extremist” for leading a 2012 prayer rally outside of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. During the rally, he called homosexuality a sin.

The show’s cancellation sparked debate online, with David Benham arguing that “there’s an agenda that’s out in America right now that demands silence, especially from men and women who profess Jesus Christ and hold to His standards.”
After the surprising move by SunTrust this week, the brothers are even more convinced that Christians are being marginalized. “Keeping us off television wasn’t enough, now this agenda to silence wants us out of the marketplace,” said David Benham. Conservative Christian group Faith Driven Consumer, which has been campaigning in support of the Benham brothers, believes SunTrust is punishing them simply because of their Christian beliefs.

Live eternal now – OBEDIENCE = SUCCESS and certain reward in heaven.

GOD CREATED US TO WORK

f_11310494920_business-1.jpg

The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it.”    Genesis 2:15

Work is a first class calling. We are special to God and He has a special calling for each one of us.

The work He has for us is important to Him – it’s valuable, it’s special, it’s significant.

God will teach us and guide us in our work and ultimately, we work for God not our earthly boss.(Isaiah 28:23-29)

All of the resources of heaven are available to us to fulfill God’s plan for our life. We need to appropriate these resources by faith for our calling to work.
Take a look at the story under Pages on the right, “Story of how God provided new premises for Care & Share”.

God is looking for those who will hear the call of God, rise up in faith , move in the power of the Holy Spirit and see His presence and power manifest in the marketplace.

The Lord will hold us responsible for all we do and do not do. The only strategy is to hear and to obey.
“When we listen HE the Lord speaks. When we obey HE the Lord acts.

Remember there will be work in the paradise of the future just as there was in the paradise past (Garden of Eden) because God himself takes joy in His work.
