To be an ambassador, you must understand that you are representing all that pertains to the Kingdom of YAH and to also know how to confront the kingdoms of the world.
There are some areas that you need not only spiritual but natural knowledge of in order to be effective in dealing with the Body of Christ and those in the world system.
People don’t understand that YESHUA didn’t just deal with church folks, but He dealt with those not in church, who were outside the religious system.
Many are proclaiming they are international or global, but don’t know how to deal with the different people they will be addressing.
If YAH is sending you to a diversity of cultures and races, then you need not only to have spiritual understanding, but also natural and personal knowledge of who what and where in your assignments.
So you need to have knowledge of:
- The word of YAH, in your language and the place you are sent to.
It’s good to learn some basic words of communication to at least greet those you encounter.
- The understanding of scriptures, so that you can be able to answer the questions that you may be asked, sometimes by those who have no knowledge of YAH.
- The principles of YAH’s Kingdom, so that you can be able to effectively communication the standards of holiness and righteousness to those who don’t have a moral foundation.
- The ability to lay a spiritual foundation, so that they will understand the laws and principles that are require to build the people spiritually.
- Administrative abilities, to be able to build a spiritual team that will help in bringing the gospel to a country, through the establishment of places of worship, and schools of teaching and training.
- Business Knowledge, to help to grow the people economically and to produce wealth in a region.
- Cultures of the different regions, so that you can be able to win the people by knowing how they think, live and act, so you can get strategy as to how to win them from practices that are ungodly.
- Racial understanding of the diverse people, so you can understand the strongholds, barriers and mindsets, that have them in bondage!
- Educational knowledge, both spiritually and naturally, so you can communicate effectively as you minister to the people in their understanding.
- Political systems, to understand the governmental systems in various countries, so that you know the laws of the land as well as becoming friends with those that set the social climate of a country, so you can know what spirits operate there.
I have found that most laws are passed according to the mindset and behavior of the people in that area.
- Economic structures in different countries, so you can understand what is needed to bring increase or to balance the economic growth, so that one set of people won’t oppress another.
- Good leadership skills, so that you can be effective in bringing order into a region.
Knowing how to go in and out among the people and gaining their trust, so that you can be able to do the work you are called to, because people will work with a leader who shows them they are competent assured and confident!
- Ability to solve problems, so that you can bring a solution to what the problems are in that area.
- Policies of different countries, so that when you go in you will know the do and don’t of that area and you can pray and get directions and instructions from YAH of how to accomplish your assignment!
You see people, in order to represent the Kingdom of God globally, not only do you need the spiritual knowledge but the natural knowledge also.
You need a team that would include somebody who also can speak various languages and a researcher who can do the background work on the various countries you are entering into.
It does no good to try and go in and do a work, but you can’t even begin, because you didn’t fast and pray for instructions directions and strategies, or you didn’t get a understanding of the people of that land.
We are sent to preach the gospel, but we also need wisdom of how we can effectively do it without unnecessary warfare!
I love you, but you are going to need more than your tongues and that cross around your neck!
It’s important that we have training, teaching and accountability, so that we can grow right spiritually for our assignment!
Some persons require a harder curriculum than others, because of what they are chosen to do!
Find your spiritual professor and go to that spiritual university for your education, so you can be properly equipped for what you are chosen for!
