The prophets of old declared there would be a people who would turn their plowshares into swords. Plowshares were working tools. The Lord in this hour will use businesses to change the landscapes of cities. The Kingdom of God is after cities. Every city has a destiny and great redemptive value. Raising up Kingdom men and women and sending them into the marketplace becomes a lethal weapon in the hands of God. The marketplace mandate on the body of Christ is a powerful calling. Only 2% of the body of Christ is called to ecclesiastical ministry, while 98% of believers are in the marketplace. As marketplace leaders we are on assignment to subdue mammon. The Apostle James said the rich have heaped up treasures for the last days. Therefore, the world is facilitating riches until Kingdom men and women are prepared to handle it.
