Keep this in mind from Intermarriage part 1: Promotion is the release (or birthing) of what is rightfully ours… This is our inheritance.

 When we say promotion, we are speaking in terms of career progression with ‘CAREER’ being an expression of who you are. Protecting who you are and who you were does not allow God to transform you into the person He desires for you to become. This‘defense’ which originates from offence does not allow us to grow into the person God desires for us to become.

 An an additive: An individual never gets stuck working a job, she/he gets stuck in the MENTALITY of working. Many believe their jobs are merely a means of earning an income when in truth that particular job may be the means God is using to prepare them for their next assignment.

 Jobs are assignments that must meet completion…

 Now…

1. How does intermarriage relate to jobs?

2. How does intermarriage relate to career?

3. How has intermarriage placed our promotions on pause?

 Also…

How can intermarriage propel us into the realm of promotion?

Let’s look at ‘INTERMARRIAGE’ through the lens of jobs and careers…

 According to freedictionary.com and dictionary.com ‘INTERMARRIAGE’ is defined as a:

 1. Marriage between people of DIFFERENT social classes.

2. Marriage between people belonging to the SAME small group, especially if they are close blood relatives.

 Hmm…

 Also…

 3. To marry WITHIN one’s family, tribe, or clan.

4. Intermarriage- marriage to a person BELONGING to a tribe or group other than your own as required by CUSTOM or LAW.

 Now consider this…

  • We cannot co-mingle the seed of life with a seed of death…
  • We cannot co-mingle the seed of our purpose with the seed of our past…
  • We cannot remain married to what we ‘did’ or ‘produced’ in times past…

 We must divorce the past in order to advance into the future.

 BEING MARRIED TO SOMEONE OR SOMETHING (A MINDSET) THAT HAS NOT GONE THROUGH AND IS NOT GOING THROUGH THE PROCESS OF REGENERATION EQUALS MIXTURE. Mixture is hot and cold, up and down…. The roller coaster ride of INCONSISTENCY.

 Regeneration: Spiritual or moral revival or rebirth. -Freedictionary.com

We ‘regene’ when put on a new identity. This happens when we accept Christ as Our Lord and Savior.

Jobs and Careers

Jobs… If jobs are assignments that must meet completion then when the assignment reaches completion we must move forward spiritually, mentally, physically, socially and financially.

Careers…If careers are expressions of who we are and who we are becoming then we must continually pioneer and progress forward spiritually, mentally, physically, socially and financially.

If we desire promotion (which all of us do) then we cannot remain married to PMS (Programmed Mind- Sets) from the past. ‘PMS’ can be defined as a system of thought that originates from a person, place or thing, and has been ingrained into our character.

Here we go again… BEING MARRIED TO SOMEONE OR SOMETHING (A MINDSET or PMS) THAT HAS NOT GONE THROUGH AND IS NOT GOING THROUGH THE PROCESS OF REGENERATION EQUALS MIXTURE.

Mixture is hot and cold, up and down…. The roller coaster ride of INCONSISTENCY.

This is a form of ‘INTERMARRIAGE’; when we marry (or are in relationship) with a person, place or thing that resembles our UN-REGENERATED past. As we previously presented definitions for intermarriage, we highlighted these key words: DIFFERENT, SAME, WITHIN and BELONGING.

 So…  If we desire to progress in the ‘WORKPLACE’ as God desires, we must allow our PMS Programmed Mind-Sets)that are DIFFERENT and SAME to past organizations to be regenerated… Let us not forget our PMS that were WITHIN and BELONGING to past organizations as well.

 Yes… By Jesus by I think we got it!!

 As you progress throughout your career you will continue to complete assignments. However, you cannot afford to take the mindsets that are DIFFERENT from your current organization, and the SAME as your previous workplaces. You also cannot afford to take the mindsets WITHIN and BELONGING to your past workplaces (Mentally and Physically). Your mindset must be regenerated to accommodate what God desires for you to accomplish and the mission and vision of the organization you have been sent to partner with and serve. Some things must be taken, and some things must be left behind. AMEN!!!

 Last, but not least….

How can intermarriage propel us into the realm of promotion?

 When we are married to (or in relationship) with those people, places and things that have been and are going through the regeneration process we always have a fresh  outlook regarding who we are, who we are becoming and the world we live in.

 BLESSINGS!!!
