New Roadways and Routes of Trade!
The Lord is setting up new systems of trade in our day. I saw in the Spirit, new roads and gates opening up. I saw in the Spirit, the Lord setting up new maps and blueprints for trade.
I believe the Lord is setting up new systems and roads in the Spirit and in the natural to trade and sell forth His Gospel and to implement Kingdom ideas. To import and export Kingdom businesses and Heavenly blueprints. The Lord is setting up new systems to get His Word out quickly to the world! His Word will be shipped and delivered with quickness to the nations! His Word will be traded forth on these routes and roads as it was in the days of Rome!
There are new runners that the Lord is releasing. There are new roads being set up for these runners of the Gospel! We must harness all of these roadways, systems, and technoogies for the glory of the Gospel!
ROMAN ROADS PROPELLED THE GOSPEL
It is said that the Romans built a network of 53,000 miles of roads all through the empire, primarily for military purposes. And this was in A.D. 300. What made the Roman empire so strong and violent in their advancement was their foundational value of setting up a massive system of roads all across their empire. Their armies would march easily through these roadways and advance in war over regions and countries!
The Roman roads were protected by the government. It eliminated fear from being robbed by bandits. It guaranteed greater safety and clarity in your travels. You wouldn’t have to struggle through the rough and hard terrain, eliminating struggle and making it easier to move. These Roman roadways were made and built for acceleration and sustainability. They were built for rapid trade and movement.
The Apostle Paul and many of the apostles and evangelists were able to spread the message and the name and the fame of Jesus Christ because they accessed and traveled upon these set up roadways.
Paul preached to the whole known world by making use of the Roman road systems. He traveled nearly 10,000 miles across the Roman Empire, preaching in cities of desolation, poverty, pagan religions, and grave persecution. If it wasn’t for the Roman road ways, Paul would not have preached his message for the timespan of 30 years!
We must make use and access these new routes of connectivity that the Lord is setting up!
DAMASCUS ROAD ENCOUNTERS
3 As he journeyed he came near Damascus, and suddenly a light shone around him from heaven. 4 Then he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?”5 And he said, “Who are You, Lord?”
Then the Lord said, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting.[a] It is hard for you to kick against the goads.” 6 So he, trembling and astonished, said, “Lord, what do You want me to do?” Then the Lord said to him, “Arise and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.”
Damascus was a key commercial city. There were several trade routes linked to Damascus to other cities in the Roman world. It was in this city of trade but Paul traded his old life with his new found converted life to the Lord. It was in this city of trade, where Paul became a trading-merchant of the Gospel. It was in this city of trade, where Paul became a preacher and an apostle of the faith.
Where are the cities of trade? Where are the hubs of trade? Where are the churches and apostolic centers of trade that will be connected with many roadways and routes in the Spirit and in the natural?
People from other regions, networks, and surrounding cities will know that your church/ministry is a place of meeting and safety. People will travel from afar and follow these roads and routes in the natural and in the Spirit to come to your Damascus city of trade!
APOSTOLIC TRADING HUBS
God is wanting to raise up cities and churches that will be like Damascus, a place where people can be converted and a place that is connected with many routes and roads in the Spirit. Connectivity is everything. We must be connected and accountable to the world and to one another. Don’t disconnect yourself but connect yourself to something greater and bigger than yourself. These apostolic trade centers/hubs will be connected via. a number of streams, networks, roads, and routes. They will be interconnected with through modern-day Roman roads.
In 1834, the National Antislavery Society organized and created the Underground Railroad, with the specific purpose of saving and delivering slaves from the hands of unjust slave-owners unto freedom! This Underground Railroad system spanned throughout 29 states and into Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean. The railways were back roads, swamps, caves, fields, forests, rivers, and literally anywhere that was hidden from the normalcy of the public eye. It is believed that around 100,000 people were set free into liberation from their slavery because of the usage of these railway systems!
The most famous of people involved in this underground work of course was Harriet Tubman.
Enslaved people didn’t just run away, but they now had access to the underground railway systems which connected them to safe regions, and places and families of neutrality, blessings, and benefit. These roadways literally connected people to divine freedom and liberation.
The Lord is giving you divine access and connection to these new portals of glory. You shall no longer be denied access! The doors of blessings and favors shall no longer be denied to you! They will be opened! every door will be opened and every kingdom gate will fling wide! There is nothing that the child of God cannot have access to.
The Holy Spirit is giving you divine access to the portals and hubs of Damascus, to these places of glory. You may have felt left out but it is the will of the Lord for you to run forward on these roadways of glory. It is the will of the Lord for you to run fast and far on these roads of destiny. The Lord is opening up doors of unusual favor for you so that the Kingdom dreams and ideas inside of you will quickly manifest.
Your heart of humility and honor is what keeps you on these roadways and routes. It is your heart of service that keeps you in these places of trade. The Lord is anointing you afresh to have every single door and roadway opened for the glory of God. Don’t let your past bitterness nor your conflicts in relationships close off a door for the Gospel. Deal with it and get it right, so that places of trade may open up in Jesus‘ name!
THE HIGHWAY OF THE LORD
We must use such roadway systems for the glory of the Lord. We must use such railway networks for the benefit of the Gospel. It’s time to liberate America by using these railways in the Spirit. It’s time to liberate the world by making use of these Kingdom roads. It’s time to liberate the Church into the future by accessing these new technologies and strategies of the Lord.
These roadways and systems of trade are created for liberation! It is created for greater freedom, power, and aid!
The Lord is building new roadways and routes for the Gospel, just as it was in the days of the Apostle Paul, roaming in the empire of Rome. The Lord is creating new roadways and routes for trade.
Who will build these roads? Who build up these roadways in the Spirit and in the natural? Who will make usage of these routes to further the Gospel of the King?
It’s time to trade and it’s time to connect. The Holy Spirit is opening up the trade routes of old and is bringing forth a greater level of synergy and connectivity for the nations to abound!
