This is a prophetic manual book that deals squarely with the spiritual aspect of business. It is a prophetic warfare manual for destroying and overcoming the forces of darkness battling against the progress and breakthroughs of businesses. The rate at which the kingdom of darkness is frustrating the businesses of Christians is alarming. So many have been frustrated out their businesses and many have even dabbled into the negative spiritual world to receive power to sustain their businesses.
For true believers in Christ Jesus, God has promised to bless all the works of our hands and we must hold unto such as we do our best to grow the businesses and also embark on spiritual warfare to compliment the physical efforts.
“1 And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:
2 and all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God.
3 Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field.
4 Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.
5 Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store.
6 Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out.
7 The Lord shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.
8 The Lord shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.” Deuteronomy 28:1-8
These are all God’s divine promises for His children and we must therefore enforce such in our lives and businesses. There are so many believers in Christ Jesus who had done several businesses and they have all folded up not because they don’t have the capacities but because they are ignorant about the spiritual dimension of business. God’s verdict concerning the prosperity of our businesses is never in doubt as the Psalmist puts it.
“And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.” Psalm 1:3
If The Word declares prosperity in all our undertakings, why are many facing hell in their businesses?
The reason is because satan is still the god of this world and you have to overcome the influence of his kingdom in your life and business if you want to make headway in your business.
“3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
4 in whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” 2 Corinthians 4:3-4
Apostle Paul made no mistake when he called the devil the god of this world. He is indeed the god of this world. There is a dangerous spiritual warfare going on in this world. Apostle Paul gave us an insight about this war even though many believers choose to ignore such to their own detriment.
“10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
“3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
4 (for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
5 casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
6 and having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.” 2 Corinthians 10:3-6
The Bible never left us in doubt as to the spiritual warfare going in this world but we must learn to fight as well if ever we desire constant progress and breakthroughs in our businesses. The kingdom of darkness doesn’t take it lightly with those who have not come to pay homage to them and are running their businesses. They would always look for ways to frustrate such people out of businesses.
Base on Business statistic, 8 out of 10 entrepreneurs who start businesses fail within the first 18 months. This is a whopping 80% crash and burn. This is really serious. Another report has it that according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, about 50% of all new businesses survive 5 years or more, and about one-third survive 10-years or more. This is an interesting statistic because it shows you that a more mature business has a better chance to survive.
According to the Small Business Administration – The SBA – close to 66% of small businesses will survive their first 2 years. What that means is that only about one-third of total businesses will fail during the first 2 years. The SBA also tells you that about 50% of businesses fail during the first year in business.
The sole reason for this which many business tycoons, managers, educators etc. will never tell you is that most of these failures are caused by spiritual factors. This is why in this book; its focus is on the spiritual dimension of waging war against the host of hell making businesses to fail. This book is a great book that will help you attain the needed spiritual freedom for physical manifestations of the blessings of riches and wealth.
