The Purpose of Networking
The first function of networking is the globalization of the Kingdom into one function. The church is one, and the Spirit is one, so it only makes sense that the ministry and the business world functions as one. God is rapidly tearing down the walls that divide so many people by a sovereign move of His Spirit. The church of today needs access to the foundations of the true church that is the ministry of the prophets and apostles. This will bring harmony from a Kingdom holistic perception.
Ezekiel 47: 9-10 “And it shall come to pass, that every thing that liveth, which moveth, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live: and there shall be a great multitude of fish because these waters shall come thither, for they shall be healed; and everything shall live whither the river cometh.”
“And it shall come to pass the fishers shall stand upon it from Eugedi even unto Enegalim; they shall be a place to spread forth nets; their fish shall be according to their kinds, as the fish of the great sea, exceeding many.”
In this great chapter we see the river of God that increases in-depth and flowing power. The great refreshing across our land today are defined by the river experience. Not only that the river is flowing, but it is time to cast in the nets to reap the catch. The nets are represented by the networking of ministries, businesses and churches working together for the cause of the Kingdom.
In the first church all of the apostles were networked together through relationship in Jerusalem. Even when Antioch received the blessing of the Spirit of God upon the Gentiles, they were stilled relationally connected to the whole. I believe the strength of the first church’s ability to impact the whole world, was through their close relationship and connectivity to one another for the cause of the Kingdom.
We see this when the disciples first started following the Lord they took in a catch that “broke” their nets! In other words they were able to catch, just not able to keep them all. This is a classic example of the modern church, our inability to effect change that endures in people’s lives. In John 21:1-11 we see at the end of Jesus’ earthly ministry, the beginning of the apostles’, they caught such a great catch but lost none. And the net did not break this time! The difference was their ability to work together and be relational connected. It is these divine relationships that pull you into new seasons in your lives. The purpose of our network is ultimately to connect you to the Kingdom realm on a much bigger scale than we have previously known in the past.
The network well expand your perceptions and allow you to be tied to other ministries, businesses, and networks through relationship and not through organizational paperwork. The one thing that ties us to the net is the pure love and respect we develop towards one another. In this fashion a synergy of relationships are born, which means the sum total of our efforts together being greater than what I can do by myself.
