Apostles, if your focus is limited to only the church, then you are not yet ready to go forth in a Apostolic mandate.
Our influence is not limited to just the Christians if we don’t know how to influence other areas in the earth. Our influence must include the areas of:
How will we be able to shift the economic climate of a region or nation if we are not involved in the business industry?
In order to have the financial structure of the earth geared toward the Kingdom, we need to have the monies of the world to come into the Kingdom. We need to teach the saints how to own operate and invest in the avenues of finances.
If we are going to cause a change in the morality of the earth, we need to enter into the political arena and overtake the offices of the government that legislate the laws and moral climate of the earth.
Having the ability to pass laws and bills geared toward maintaining righteousness in the earth can only be accomplish if we go into the areas that can bring national change to a country.
In order to bring forth wholesome pure and to help shape the mind of the people we need to be able to influence the many avenues of media through broadcasting in various way publishing through newspapers magazines books and using the internet to bring positive messages.
4. Arts & Entertainment:
Having a influence in the music industry is very strong.
Being able to bring forth wholesome music with a theme that consists of morals that create good character is great especially when you can connect film-making and television since these two areas carry a lot of weight in shaping minds because of what we see and hear.
The performing arts is another area of importance also.
The educational system has been out of sorts for awhile and we need to bring a godly influence back into this system.
It’s in school that children are introduced to various things not taught at home. Teachers can’t teach good standards if they not living them. Getting an influence in the educational system will help to shape the minds of our future generations and steer them in the right direction.
Helping to reestablish the family unit and bringing households into alignment with the will of God is a major project in this hour.
With so many one parent homes the ability to truly built a firm stable balanced family structure is hard. Being an influence in bringing back the original order of the family unit should be a must for every leader.
Keeping a child from growing up in a dysfunctional environment helps to produce a mentally emotionally and spiritual person.
Having the ability to span cultural and denomination barriers to proclaim the gospel is very important.
With the diversity of gods that are being worshipped, we need to have the ability to influence them into believing in ELOHIM and providing explanation and truth to those that don’t.
Please don’t forget that God has called you into areas that are not according to religious mindset but they are a influence toward also helping to bring soundness and wholeness to individual persons as well as the Body of Christ as a whole!
