Gatekeepers are on the cutting edge of a coming wealth shift. They are the portals of provision, a bridge from one realm to another. The world’s resources are going to come through Gatekeepers and help finance God’s work in the earth. Gatekeepers are God’s front line forces in business, and the business world is never going to be the same again!

As you read The Gatekeepers, you’ll discover …

The principal assignment of business leaders in God’s Kingdom

Why the richest man who ever lived valued people more than money

How to choose an exceptional mentor

I challenge you all to buy this book. I brought this book in 2005. This is one of the tools that God put in my hand to prepare me to make critical decision in March 2007. Maybe you are one of the Gatekeeper that God looking for.

Below is the last chapter taken from the book, “The Gatekeepers.”

Chapter Twelve

A Gatekeeper’s Call to Action

If God is asking you to dare to be a Gatekeeper, you must decide that you want it more deeply than any alternative.

Richard Petty has made more money than any other stock car drive in history. However, listen to the story when he reported the results of his first race to his mother. Young Richard Petty rushed into the house shouting, “Mama, there were thirty-five cars the started, and I come in second place in the race.” His mother replied, “You lost.”

“But mama, don’t you think it’s pretty good to come in second place in my first race-especially with so many starters?” She said, “Richards, you don’t have to run second place to anybody!” For the next twenty years Richard Petty dominated the world of stock car racing. The words, “Richard, you don’t have to run second place to anybody!” rang in his mind all those years.

You must make decision that being a gatekeeper isn’t going to come second place to other business goals. Being Gatekeeper is your greatest business success. You don’t have to run second place to anybody.

It’s never to late to start. Bill Walsh, former head of the San Francisco 49ers, is considered to be an offensive master. So why did Bill Walsh have to have gray hair before the NFL recognized his ability? Walsh said, “I was forty-five years old before I even had an interview for a head coaching job in the NFL.” And then he didn’t get it. He was turned down.

He was interviewed by the Bengals. Rejected.

He was interviewed by the Jets. Rejected.

He was interviewed by the Rams. Rejected.

The pros labeled Bill Walsh, “Not a head coach.” But after he was accepted in his first NFL head coaching position and three Super Bowl victories later, Bill Walsh proved the it’s never to late to start.

You must have the will to win at being a Gatekeeper. Knute Rockne said, “ Some say the will to win is a bad thing. In what way? Success in life goes to the person who competes and wins. A successful lawyer is the one who goes and wins. A successful physician is the ones who goes and wins by saving lives. A successful sales manager is someone who goes and wins by making sales. There no rewards for losing. So that leaves living life only one way-with the will to win!”

Gatekeeper must go out and win, Your enemy is not going to hand you wealth on a silver platter with an apple in it’s mouth, although he may try to roast you and serve dinner. As George Ade said, “Anyone can win-unless there happens to second entry.” God needs you to go into the city gates and contend for resources to flow into the Kingdom of God.

Theodore Roosevelt said,

The credit belong to the man who is actually in arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, …who know the great enthusiasms, the great devotion, who spends himself in worthy causes; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so the his place shall never with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.

It’s time for Gatekeepers recognize their ability and do something. It’s time for Gatekeepers to think big, as Abraham did.

To serve others nobly, as Joseph did.

To value deeply, as Solomon did.

To sit at feet of mentor, as the Queen of Sheba did.

To be cunning and creative, as Jacob was.

To endure pain and overcome, as Job did.

To not miss opportunity to be a Gatekeeper, as the rich young ruler did.

It’s time to act.

A Prayer for Gatekeepers

Dear God, thank You for Yours marvelous grace. Thank You that the Body of Christ is so diverse and each member functions differently. Thank You that You give each member the ability to function correctly.

 

I ask You to help me function in my ability as a Gatekeeper. I’m going to the marketplace today and I need to find Your wisdom there. I’ll be searching for resources that will help Your work in the earth be accomplished. Please lead me to them today,

 

Help me to think big and solve other’s problem. Help me to value people and be creative. Help to endure suffering and be patient. Lord, show me the right mentors to listen to.

 

Lord most of all, help me not to miss any opportunity to be a Gatekeeper. I want to give something to Your work today. I trust You to be the Source for my life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
