A trumpet has been sounded and GOD is igniting business leaders who can get things done in heaven and on earth.
Joshua and Caleb are described in Scripture as men who had a different spirit.
They were two of the 12 spies sent into the PROMISED LAND to determine if it could be taken, as God had promised it to them. The other ten gave a bad report that instilled fear in the people, which ultimately caused a rebellion. This resulted in an entire generation dying in the desert.
Joshua and Caleb were the only two who were led by the SPIRIT of GOD, versus the spirit of fear. They were the only ones to enter the PROMISED LAND from their generation.

I see a shift happening between our charismatic heritage and the initiative that goes with Kingdom. At present and in the past, 95% of charismatic orthodoxy has defined spirituality as any-minute obedience to the Holy Spirit. We just need to obey… we don’t need to understand the big picture, we don’t need plans or strategies (God takes care of all that). We just need to obey the Holy Spirit and the Book of Acts will return. It’s not true. Obedience alone doesn’t define maturity; it defines a servant / slave mentality.
Jesus is asking for obedience from the heart and initiative that goes with knowing the Father’s business and acting accordingly. That’s the real price tag for reforming nations. “No plan” equals no fruit beyond personal ministry. Obedience and any minute guidance is not wrong. It is where we all begin. It’s just no longer complete.
The cloud is moving. Kingdom is much more than me, my ministry, my spiritual gifts, and signs and wonders. All those things are valid tools that serve a much larger purpose. The transition from servant to king is partnering with the King of Kings.
Wisdom – People engaged in business (or any mountain) understand this more clearly than believers. They know God isn’t going to spell our every detail. It’s our responsibility to understand God’s purpose, share His heart and co-labor with him. We make decisions and take initiative. Entrepreneurial people naturally do this, the rest of us don’t… and have the fruit to show for it… our little.

“And the Lord said, ‘Who will entice Ahab into attacking Ramoth Gilead and going to his death there?’ One suggested this, and another that. – 1 Kings 22:20
There are few times we get a glimpse of what goes on in Heaven. Here is one instance when the angels were conferring with the Lord about the judgment of King Ahab for his sin and who was going to set up Ahab for this judgment.
If God wanted to use you to impact your world for Jesus Christ, what circumstances would have to be created in order for you to respond to His call? Would prospering you materially encourage you to this end? Would a major change in what you are presently doing be necessary?
