Kings In the Marketplace
Apostle Duane Youngblood teaches God has made the body of believers(the Church) a body of Priest and Kings. The Bible records the following:
4 John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne;
5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,
6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
Verse six declares “he hath made us kings and priests unto God and his father”… It is imperative that we understand our function in the earth as it relates to these two capacities. We are Kings and Priest but as it relates to Church, Home and City these two capacities shift in our lives. In order for the true purpose of God to be carried out we must walk appropriately as “Kings and Priest” at Church, at Home and in the City and we must understand there differences.
In the Church about two/three percent of us are Full-time priest and the rest of us are Kings. In the Home King and Priest are Authority functions given to headship first and then the rest of the family come under it. In the City Kings build business, become leaders in business, solve problems, connect resources to needs and gather territory for the kingdom. In the City Priest see that the vision and mission of Jesus Christ for the lost is carried out on local levels and that the resources brought in by Kings impact local regions under the vision of local assemblies.
Apostle Youngblood is teaching Faith Principles all of 2014 and will be dealing with this aspect in July, August and September of 2014. Beginning in September The Life Church will be launching “Kings in the Marketplace Consortium” which is a group of like-minded business owners, individuals and kingdom idealist who see the necessary function of the Kings of the church in the Marketplace. The Consortium will sponsor a 13 week Business Development Class for any person interested in taking their business to another level. The topics to be discussed in the business development class are listed on the flyer below.
