The Mountain of Economics
To raise up kingdompreneurs and marketplace intercessors, so that the kingdom of God might be established throughout all the earth. And that the church might become the major stockholders in Corporate America and rule in the global market.
Global Economic Condition
There is no shortage in money in the earth. If you think so, then you have bought into the lie of the world. Our global economy is booming; therefore, everyone can still inspire to become wealthy or a millionaire. According to one millionaire I read about, he said that there are 28 trillion dollars in our economy, so no one has to feel that they are taking money from someone else if he or she wants to become a millionaire.
“The next generation mentioned in Deuteronomy 7 is the Canaanites, who represent those who currently dominate the mountain of economy. The Promised Land was often called Canaan for short, and we still understand the word Canaan as including some sort of financial boon (milk and honey and fruitfulness). Canaanite in Hebrew can be translated as “merchant, trader, and trafficker,” and also “to be humbled, brought low, or to be under subjection.” The word Cana means “zealous.” Together, these words paint a picture of greed and poverty. The Canaanites on the mountain are working to either get people to be over-zealous in their trading and trafficking or to subject them to poverty – or both. These Canaanite of greed and poverty are opposed to anyone living in God’s provision.
One of God’s names is Jehovah-Jireh, which means “the Lord my provider.” When we buy into the Canaanites’ philosophy, we either live under the banner of financial hopelessness or the banner of financial euphoria. When we choose Jehovah-Jireh, we live under the banner of the Lord’s provision. God’s heart is for every person and every nation to live under His provision. He delights in providing for His children.
The Canaanites on the mountain oppose Him and us by putting us under a constant stressor of needing more and more without ever being content, or by setting up circumstances where survival itself is imperiled. Though money and resources are a blessing from God, the zeal for those resources is the root of all kinds of evils.”
