As an Apostle, one thing you should have is the knowledge that is necessary for the production, consumption and transfer of wealth within the earth.
You have to have the ability to not only deal with the economy in the church, but also how to bring forth the wealth from the marketplace of the world.
They are given the responsibility of setting the condition of a region as it pertains to material wealth, not only for the Church, but for all in the region they are assigned to, so that wealth is produced from multiple resources to provide for all households in a godly way, so that their wealth is not obtained from sources that corrode the lives of the people.
They have to be able to teach those in the region the system of distribution, so that a vast measure of people are effective and not just a limited number of persons, giving them total control of the economy in the region.
They teach the people how to supply goods to the other persons in business, so that the people all learn how to help each other, so that no one culture or race will have control of others.
They come into a region to set in order a set of principles or procedures according to the Word of God, that can produce the methods and practices of the people, having all things common.
It is their responsibility to teach the concept of Kingdom Economics that produces an ability for all to enjoy the wealth being produced in the region.
Too often, the Apostles come into a region to hoard up the wealth and riches unto themselves. That’s not God’s plan for wealth that is placed in an Apostle’s hands.
The Apostle is to produce an economic system that brings the region together financially, so that all may see prosperity occurring in their lives.
They teach them what the region needs to focus on, so that the region can see financial growth on a continual basic.
They show the people how to continue to increase, so that there won’t be an economic collapse because of greed and irresponsibility.
They teach biblical concepts of sowing and reaping, building, establishing and maintaining growth in business and how to obtain the wealth of the wicked, without becoming wicked.
An Apostle must have the knowledge, wisdom and understanding of three things concerning production:
- What needs to be supplied to the general public,
- How to bring it forth, and
- How to distribute it beyond the present region so that the people are not just pulling from their own personal resources.
Many times, this is why ministries collapse, because they are constantly pulling from the same people, thereby draining their resources.
We have to teach the people how to utilized the marketplace of the world, so that we don’t drain all the resources of the Church.
Apostles, in order for the people to survive, we have to teach them how to use the world’s resources and store up the Church Storehouses so that when there is a famine or economic breakdown in the world, the Church will have the ability to then become the distribution center that is necessary to save all lives, and not just those of a certain culture or race.
The Joseph System was about saving all cultures and races, because each one contributes to the economic makeup that is necessary to continue to produce the wealth and riches for global survival.
Apostles, this is one area where in which we are not educated properly. We must teach this to every apostle now, that it’s not about greed and self preservation, but it’s about the whole earth having a continual resource of economic development systems and methods, so that all can survive.
The Joseph Anointing is about continual survival, not momentary riches!
If your economic system only provides for you and your congregation, then perhaps you were called to pastor and not to be an establisher throughout the earth!
Apostles never just think locally, they always think Kingdom, which includes the whole earth!
Your blueprint may start out small, but it will largely increase as you gain more responsibility!
