Teaching Women Thought Leaders the Importance of Building Social, Political, and Economic Empires in This New Decade | Women's Leadership Volume 1
Whenever teaching a new group of people, I start with the basic foundation: spiritual laws and Kingdom principles.
As most folks know, I pull my teachings and revelation from the Scriptures, Jesus’s words, and the Holy Spirit’s inspiration. I recognize that while my faith is rooted in these truths, not everyone in the Beloved Tribe acquaints themselves with Christianity. In truth, you will rarely hear me call myself a Christian. Instead, I identify as a Believer, a daughter of God, and a mouthpiece in His Kingdom.
When Jesus walked the earth, He didn’t come to establish a religion (like Christianity). He brought the Kingdom and its message to the people. He functioned under the Holy Spirit’s direction. For this reason, He could perform many signs and wonders.
Today, the Holy Spirit rests on anyone — and I mean ANYONE — who says “Yes!” to Him.
Religion places unbearable conditions on people, which often pose as a stumbling block to the Kingdom message. But relationship with the Holy Spirit — who reveals all truths and shows us things to come (John 16) — removes barriers.
The Holy Spirit anoints even the worst of the worst with the ability to preach the Kingdom message (study Paul’s story to learn more). And for that reason, I preach heavily that in today’s time, during this revival and reformation, the Holy Spirit will use the “least of these.”
When we approach our spheres from this perspective, it’s easier for us to see how Kingdom principles inject themselves in our social, political, and economic spaces.
Spiritual laws and Kingdom principles are embedded in our worlds; and when we use them in service of God and man, we reap the blessing.
Building Social Empires Based on Kingdom Principles
When focusing on social empires, I will come from the perspective of the nuclear family. As most are well-familiar, if our small units thrive, then our collective units flourish respectively.
For the most part, when discussing this element as it pertains to women, I am targeting wives.
This discussion does not diminish the impact of single women. This segment has a way of empowering the social structure by contributing as single parents or community leaders. Today, we have a plethora of content to empower such women, and my platform has its own services that bless them; but not much is delivered in the way of addressing wives with this Conscious Conservative message.
So, I will devote time to empowering wives who contribute most of their gifts to their social nuclear empire.
As you will often hear me preach, women play a significant role in exercising dominion.
This gift does not diminish once we say “I do.” In fact, our ability to thrive should be valued as the second brain power in the family unit. To express this point more clearly, I will pull an excerpt from Conscious Black Conservatism:
Wives are a blessing to men. When God looked at Man, He said, “It is not good for man to be alone” (Genesis 2:18, emphasis added).
When wives know their purpose, however it may look, the sole expression of that purpose is to empower the family unit; and this strengthens the social empires that eventually impact the community.
Perhaps you are a wife, Beloved, and you have empowering lessons that will bless another wife. Your virtual ministry or online business can create products or services to equip this demographic. Maybe your story is one of second chances.
If you are divorced and remarried, you can use your story to teach young women how to avoid the traps you faced.
As you think about your venture, consider how your platform can influence and impact the social spheres in this hour.
Building Political Empires Based on Kingdom Principles
Within the general conservative space, women are often discouraged from acquiring leadership positions in the political arena. Our church leaders are at fault for this, for they condition their congregants to believe women are second to men.
In one Twitter Class session, I explained to the men in our space that by preventing principled women from exercising their own type of dominion, we leave the vacuum open for other women to fill. Case in point: If a Conservative woman is called to run for office, but Conservatives prevent her success because she’s a female, the opposing, progressive side will fill the vacuum with a woman who will implement those destructive policies.
In that same lesson, I taught how God gave both Adam and Eve dominion on the earth (Genesis 1-2). Only in the case of marriage did God command the woman to submit to a man. But in every respect, women have the mind power to create and execute political structures that benefit communities.
For the longest time — even to this day — Conservatives fought against women in political positions. Sure, they will allow a couple of them to win, but they are hell-bent on suppressing female leadership. As such, many Conservative women have left the movement and found acceptance on the Democrat side. While they may not adhere to the core tenets of Liberalism, these women felt the unction to hold political office; and they went where they were accepted.
In truth, the Conservative Movement is at fault for their own losses. It’s not as if God has only anointed Democrat women to be political leaders. Rather, the Conservative Movement has hindered women’s progress, all the while claiming God doesn’t want women to be in leadership positions.
For this reason, I continue to push back against this destructive ideology on the Right, because God has Esthers in the earth who will perform His wonders.
Esther, when you read her story, was one of the most powerful political leaders in all history. I know many Christians like to paint her as this docile woman who married the handsome king; but she had a unique ability to persuade her husband, the king, to save an entire nation.
Esther didn’t wield a single sword; she didn’t fight a single war.
She simply used her words and her political access to garner the king’s favor while saving her people.
A woman did that!
Not a man.
Had it not been for Esther, the Jews would have been annihilated in that region.
Today, we have this same gift: God’s Esthers are in the earth to bring healing, deliverance, righteousness, and justice … but in our unique ways. God has His daughters in the land who have a message that will save a community. His Esthers will be granted favorable opportunities to present policies or messages that empower the nation. His Esthers are focused on His laws and precepts, because they know His principles work.
And regardless of what Conservatives think, God isn’t asking them for permission to use His own daughters in this hour. He will do it, with or without their support; and I have positioned myself to encourage and train other Esthers to do the work, because the Kingdom of God is at hand.
If you, Beloved, feel called to run for office or to launch a political platform, the time is now. God gave us our own ability to exercise dominion. And by working hand-in-hand with empowering men, we can bring the change we want to see in our communities.
Building Economic Empires Based on Kingdom Principles
In recent study, we discovered women business owners comprised over 40% of US companies. Back in 2011, I entered this entrepreneur space as a way to care for me and my daughter; and since then, I’ve helped other women launch their online businesses or virtual ministries.
Building economic empires in this hour has never been more accessible. Thanks in large part to the Internet, women can monetize their gifts while empowering their homes and communities.
As a coach, I often encourage women to step into this virtual space as a measure for increasing their wealth. Too often, Black communities, for example, are left behind the economic shift because of lack of knowledge. Meanwhile, other groups master these systems while benefiting from our ongoing social justice fights.
Because so much focus is placed on battling one area, Black Americans often neglect the economic space as it relates to ownership and equity. Being the controllers of our own economies allows us to impact our communities when other groups refuse to hire us.
While fighting against racism is noble, we cannot neglect our economics. And one of the best strategies for future progress is to train women to own online businesses or virtual ministries so our money works in our favor.
Perhaps you have a gift for understanding economics. Maybe you know how to budget friendly or how to be an accountant. Maybe you know how to perform a service and get desirable, financial results for a company. If so, consider launching your virtual ministry or online business in this economic niche.
Today, I offer an exclusive online program for rising women leaders like you who are ready to manifest your vision, starting now.
