This book is a by-product of an intensive, double barrel apostolic ministry executed over the course of nearly two decades. The author, uniquely tutored in the school of the Spirit has been privileged to serve at the pleasure of Heaven’s Great King as an apostle both within the body of Christ and in the marketplace. Drawing upon his intensive obedience and extensive experience, it has pleased the Lord for him to compose a treatise that would address those whose primary call is to serve as apostolic functionaries in the marketplace of the nations. This is because the harvest in the fields of the world is ripe but kingdom labourers are not yet rife. It is time for the Lord’s apostles in the marketplace to arise in faith and obedience and put the sickle in! This is not a compendium produced by closeted research. It is a boot-on-the-ground testimony of Jesus Christ about the endless possibilities that abound in embracing and executing God’s kingdom and His righteousness within the gamut of the marketplace. If those who serve the Lord in the marketplace of nations can choose righteousness always, no matter the pressure, it is impossible for them not to win! This book is therefore a clarion call and an apostolic manifesto laden with the Lord’s marching orders to all the Lord’s apostles whose duty posts are in the marketplace of the nations.
Humankind is on a journey. People move in different directions under heaven in order to reach various destinations, clearly identified by the author as follows: forward by means of astrology; backward by history; upward by religion; downward and inward by science, art, philosophy and technology. You see, none of these directions has the capacity to answer mankind’s deep-seated questions and lead them to the ultimate destination – God! Jesus said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father (God) except through me” (John 14:6, NIV). As simple as this sounds, it is the greatest answer to all of man’s questions. The best direction to take in life therefore is Godward! And there is only one acceptable route – He is Jesus Christ, without whom every journey embarked upon will be an exercise in futility.
In this book, the author makes bold to assert in this book that the greatest power in heaven is the power of God, while the most important power on earth is man’s power of choice. Those who have a functional relationship with God don’t recklessly wait for the highly improbable waves of fate (produced by luck and chance) to help them surf on life’s high sea, they deliberately engage the living God by walking according to His precepts and statutes to shower His favour upon them. This book has been written to help spur you not just to learn to make a choice – but to make the right choices every day of your life. That’s the assignment that the Great Monarch of Zion has given the author: to get you to that place of endless victory where you are constantly inspired to make the right choices. All right choices point to God and His cause.
This work has been spawned by the Holy Spirit’s inspiration to systematically educate and empower saints of the living God to differentiate between human genius and God’s excellence. For where human genius ends, God’s excellence begins. God’s plan is for man to embody and release His glorious excellence which is the essential sum total of all of His eternally wonderful attributes. To do this, man has to go through the requisite process of contacting, containing and birthing His excellence. Those who pursue human genius end up with shiny exterior, ornate build, aesthetic finishing and impact with no eternal consequence. While those who pursue God’s excellence create a holy debacle among the nations; bringing glory to God and grinding to mush anything that displeases Him under heaven.
Throughout history, men and women who ended up influencing generations for good or evil did so by building something. Nothing happens on earth without people putting their hands together to build something. In the beginning God built; the project managers of the Tower of Babel also built; Abraham built; Moses and all the prophets built and Jesus Himself said, ‘I will build my church and the gates of hell will not prevail against’. The charge therefore to Go Into All the World is a call to build righteous systems by which the will of God can be done on earth. To effectively carry out this assignment, it is most pertinent for every Christian to understand the art of building according to heavenly patterns. It is not enough to build legacies that will last the test of time because when all is said and done, it is only eternity that matters and in very deed, time is just a dot in eternity’s vast expanse. Good works alone are not enough; they have to be powered by the life of God and backed by a thorough knowledge and submission to His will – the manual containing the schematics, mechanics and technology for executing His eternal purpose on earth. Remember, after all is said and done, should Christ tarry, and your days on earth are fully expended and your works are passed through the flames of God’s judgment; only two things will matter: Did you build according to heavenly design? What materials did you build with? Skilled men make headlines, visionary men make history, and wise men make eternity.
