“No One Buys My Merchandise” by Dr. Jené Walker

Revelation 18:10-11 “standing at a distance for fear of her torment, saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour your judgment has come.’And the merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise anymore:”

Lord help us, the merchants. We live in the world and the world has a system (Babylon – the world’s system will be judged). In this system, Paul said that every man has to work to eat. But oh woe is the merchant who does business according to the world’s principles. We have to be oh so careful that we don’t do the following:
*own businesses that contradict the Word and Spirit of God
*advertise falsely
*deceive God’s people
*lack integrity and honesty by saying we will do something and not do it
*have unjust scales or prices (is fair market an oxymoron? It can’t be for believers)
*treat God’s people unfairly
*engage in fraudulent behavior
*engage in dirty dealing
*develop a love for money which is the root of all evil
*store up all our riches for ourselves
*have a desire and longing for the things of this world
*become seduced by the world
*become lazy and not approach our business in a spirit of excellence as if we’re working unto God
*neglect submitting to God for Him to purge us regularly and show us the motives of our hearts (because it is easy to go astray)
*compete with each other (God will provide for each of our businesses)
*neglect to align our business principles, missions, goals, standards, processes, procedures, rules, etc. with Godly principles

As we advertise, promote, market, deal, negotiate, buy and sell, merchants we must stay on our faces in surrendering and seeking God for guidance in every action. Hate the world and the things in it. Help us Holy Spirit. Jené Elaine Walker

    1. Praise God sis. I have to daily but then I ask Holy Spirit to “check me” and “check my heart” daily. The enemy subtly creeps in because of our human proclivity to sin. God bless you. God has us!
