Welcome
Welcome to The Business Anointing BEFORE you get increased and great wealth, I want to bring your attention to some of the deeper spiritual matters that involve money. Great money alleviates many strains and problems, but it also adds others. I think the story of what happened to me years ago will help to prepare those of you who are heading for monetary wealth. I was at Cumberland Mall (a popular shopping mall in the suburbs of Atlanta). I had an excess of money. I dont remember how much I had or why I had it. The excess of money is a relative thing. For some, having $1,000.00 free and clear is a joy and would ease all financial burdens. For others its $10,000.00; for some it takes $100,000.00; for a few a million dollars does it. Some would even require a hundred million to feel financially free. I dont remember the amount, but I had just had a particularly lucrative financial season and I felt loaded. I remember walking down the mall with the knowledge and feeling that I could comfortably buy anything in the mall. The feeling was temporary as are all things powered by the temporal. Finances often fluctuate. You can feel loaded one day but not three months later. Money is often a fickle thing. Although the feeling of having great excess and abundance has sometimes fluctuated in my mind depending on my checking account balance, what God speaks continues to be a lasting truth.

The Business Anointing

I looked into store window after store window. Nothing was beyond my financial reach. Fortunately, I have never really been an extravagant or showy person so my desires generally dont cost much. At least not as much as the typical trinkets. I dont wear jewelry. I have a magnetic wrist bracelet but thats more for a scientific reason than for show. I dont wear watches. I usually only wear suits when I have to speak; therefore, my clothes budget is not extravagant. I dont own any exotic cars unless you want to call a Smart car exotic. In other words, my tastes are simple. As I strolled the mall I was somewhat disappointed that with all that money in the bank there wasnt anything that I wanted. I had everything that I needed or wanted. That realization left sort of an empty feeling. After all, what good is money if you cant buy anything that pleases you? I just couldnt find anything that would make a difference. I couldnt then and as I think about it, I cant now. Even when I have a boatload of money, I really cant buy anything for myself or family that will make a real difference. As I strolled that mall wondering what to buy and finally realizing there was nothing that I really wanted, I heard God speak words that have stayed with me. Those words impacted me and have become the foundation for the monetary limit that I and my youngest brother and business partner, James have vowed. We have both vowed that once we reach a certain income, we will take no more money into our households. I present those words to you now that God spoke to me during that mall stroll. There is a limit to what you can buy for yourself, but there is no limit to what you can do for others.

Welcome

For many of you, your financial risk is not monetary. Your risk is the mall. The same one that I walked down many will walk in an even greater measure, and if you are abundantly financially blessed, you may walk in it for the rest of your life. God can bless you with a great deal of money and business success; but excess can become a curse. You need to be determined not to have the blessing become a curse as so many have. For many their curse was not in losing the money. If you have the good sense to earn the money, the chances are good that you will also have the wisdom not to lose it. The curse is in not understanding that the mall has no real power for long term fulfillment. When that is not understood, too much energy is expended in the wrong direction and too much money invested in the wrong places. If you are in this place reading this book, God may have chosen you as you walk in His will and in His way. If you follow His way and words, I am sure that you will do well, but I want to share these words to perhaps help you along your walk. There is a limit to what you can buy for yourself, but there is no limit to what you can do for others. Jesus said in Matthew 19:23-24, Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, that a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. 24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. I have looked at that verse in every translation including looking at the original text. All of the translations say the identical thing. You are not at The Business Anointing to remain at the same financial level. Most of you are here to become rich. Then how do you reconcile becoming rich with the difficulty of entering heaven?

The Business Anointing

I would far rather have you enter heaven poor than accumulate several billion dollars and enter hell, but I would rather have you rich AND in heaven. Can it be done? After all, a camel is pretty big and a needle is pretty small. No matter who interprets Matthew 19:23-24, anyone who remains true to even the most materialistic interpretations must admit that it is at a minimum difficult to be rich and enter heaven; and by its literal meaning, it is impossible. So what do you do because you want both riches and heaven? I will tell you what to do. Go to TheOnLineWord.com and listen to the sermon, How The Rich Get To Heaven. Its free as are all of our sermons online. Just put the word RICH in the search box and you will see the sermon listed. Listen to it! It will give you the keys for the rich man (or woman) to unlock the gates of heaven. Pastor Nathaniel How The Rich Get to Heaven preached June 2004 http://www.theonlineword.com/mp3/5212.mp3

Introduction
What Is The Business Anointing? The Business Anointing is a Christian Anointing for those in business and their spouses each New Years Day in Atlanta, Georgia at 8 AM from The ARK of Salvation and AirJesus.com. The first Business Anointing was held on January 1, 2010. The Business Anointing will be held in 2011 at The Georgia International Convention Center. The Business Anointing helps to spiritually remove blocks, opens doors and pronounces the blessings of God upon your business. Have you often wondered why you struggle so hard in business? Cant get the breakthrough that you feel you rightfully de serve? Do you see others getting breaks while you only get prob lems? Have you prayed but still cant seem to get a break through? Is there one setback after another? Now theres help? Struggle has its benefits but there comes a time when breakthrough is ordained, but you may need the anointing before breakthrough. In the Bible, kings were anointed and ordained by the prophets.

The Business Anointing

By the word of the led by God prophet, famines and droughts were caused (recession and depression in modern economic terms) and the heavens were opened and closed. God is the same yesterday, today and forevermore. The Business Anointing is a God ordained anointing upon His business people. Although, The Business Anointing is free, it does require you to do three things. Read on to find out exactly what those three things are!

The History
On December 6, 2009 Pastor Nathaniel Bronner announced to the congregation of The ARK of Salvation The Business Anointing that would happen at 8 AM on New Years Day. That announcement for The Business Anointing began broadcasting on The ARKs televised ministry broadcast the same week. In the Pastors Words: I announced to the congregation the vision and direction for The Business Anointing at the Sunday morning service. A group of several of us were leaving that afternoon to attend a Prophetic Deliverance and Healing Conference in Santa Rosa Florida at the Christian International Center. The Christian International Center is founded by Dr. Bill Hamon. The conference was a five day conference beginning Monday, Dec. 7th. The training was led by Apostle Bob and Prophetess Sharon Parkes. On Wednesday at the end of the first half of the conference, prophets from the church came to prophesy to the attendees. Two prophets spoke over me. Prophet Matthew Catalono began speaking over me. Ive had many prophets speak and prophesy but I cant remember anyone so on target and so relevant. The words Matthew spoke riveted my mind as I heard... (excerpted from the prophesy) The Lord says I am equipping you in this time and season. I am placing the sword in your hand and I am placing a tool in your hand as well. The Lord says I am going to cause you to be that person who is able to build and able to fight at the same time. For the Lord says that My presence is going to begin to come forth

The Business Anointing

upon you like never before that this is a time and season of breakthrough for you. The Lord says that its time to begin to wield the sword and to begin to cut off the head of the enemy. The Lord says its time to begin to work with the tool, to begin to build my Kingdom. And we just release right now the Kingdom building anointing. We declare that this is a man of God who is going to begin to transform things. We release ideas and strategies right now; we release a stirring within The Spirit. We declare and decree the business marketplace anointing to be released NOW in Jesus name. We command a strengthening and a breakthrough for multiplication and for a breakthrough in the Kingdom of God. For the things that you placed inside of him to begin to explode out and begin to pour out and we declare breakthrough and we cut off every attack of the enemy. ~from Prophet Matthew Catalono, 3 Days after the announcement in Atlanta of The Business Anointing~ When I heard those words it was a confirmation what God had spoken concerning The Business Anointing. I truly believe that all who follow the commands as set forth by The Business Anointing shall have the Divine Business Anointing cover their business. The second prophet, Prophetess Barby OBrien spoke other riveting words of confirmation concerning the miraculous healing power that would soon manifest at the God Heals service. God is STILL healing and He CAN heal your sickness. God Heals is held on each Biblical first Sunday at 7pm. The First Sunday of the Biblical month is different from the regular calendar and is based on the calendar setup in the Bible which is the Jewish Calendar.

The Business Anointing

I just want to take a few minutes to explain the details and the reasons behind the business creed that you must agree to follow for The Business Anointing. These are 8 principles that God has given me that I use in my business. I often teach with these 8 business principles. And if you follow them, it will lead you into a place of excellency and integrity. The Business Creed #1. Always remain financially viable. We must make sound financial decisions to remain profitable. To not only remain in business but to prosper in business. Jesus said what man builds a house without first counting the cost. Whatever you do in business the number one consideration is that it must be financially viable. That simply means it must be profitable. If its not profitable then you dont need to do it. But you need to know the profit. Often times when people come to me with business ideas, Ill ask them how much does this product cost to make or how much will this service cost to render. They dont know. They have done no cost analysis of figuring out all of the varying cost and ingredients of whatever theyre trying to bring to market. They have no idea. It must be financially viable. Often times when I go over with them and run over some estimates they end up seeing that what they are trying to do is simply not profitable. It will cost them more than what they will take in. Often times there are hidden costs that you will have to consider and things such as distribution discounts. You have to know and you have to make sure that number one above all that it is financially viable. Often times its a passion, its something they just want to do and its something they think is a good idea, but if you dont make money you wont stay in business. #1 it has to be financially viable and you need to have those figures on paper and you need to know exactly what your estimated profit will be. It needs to be

The Business Creed

11

decided up front and you need to know that for every project that you do you have to know that it is financially viable. Now I have had some projects for example, I published MountainWings at MountainWings.com which became the worlds largest daily inspirational email. When I started MW I invested for a long period of time building the list doing the advertising for it and when I set out on it I did not plan on making a profit. I knew that I was doing this for people and I knew this was something I wanted to invest in as a spiritual thing. So when I understood its financial viability, I said I am going to pay for this out of my pocket. I dont expect for this to make a profit not in terms of an earthly return this is something Im going to sow into the kingdom and this is for the kingdom of God. I am going to pay for this out of the profit of my business and not out of this venture. So I understood that its financial viability was in building heavenly bank account not earthly, but I also knew I had the earthly bank account to finance it. So you can start off on a venture and plan not to make money, but you need to be sure that you have a place to get that money from somewhere. It needs to be financially viable. So if you set out to lose money you need to know it and you need to how youre going to get the money to lose. Its as simple as that. Many corporations will plan on launching a service or product and say were going to lose money on this for five years, but after five years it will turn a profit but they know that they have deep enough pockets to last for five years. Sometimes when you start out in business, you have to make money the first month. You dont have five years to lose money. So you have to make sure that it is financially viable. #2. Use no deception. We must always be truthful both inside the company and to our customers and never use deception for gain or for other reasons. This simply means you need to tell the truth about whatever you say youre going to do and about whatever product youre selling or making or whatever youre doing use no deception. Be truthful. Tell people honestly what youre doing and what theyre going to get. Dont use trickery;

12

The Business Anointing

dont use misleading techniques. There is a price spiritually to be paid whenever you deceive someone. If youre selling something it needs to do what you say its going to do. It doesnt need to have hidden catches or some balloon note that the customer doesnt know about. You need to be honest and you need to have integrity. Everything you do, do not use deception. Tell the truth. People get what they expect but you have them knowing what to expect in honest and truth. Use no deception. #3. All products and actions must be beneficial. Everything done must have an overall beneficial effect. We make natural health products in my company, and I use one standard rule. I will not make a product if I would not take it myself or I would not give it to my family. If I would not give it to my children I would not give it to the public. Everything that we do must be beneficial. It must have an overall good effect; it must uplift and make people better. Its as simple as that. We dont do anything thats not going to be beneficial. You cannot get the business anointing and sell cigarettes or dope or something that you know without question is not going to be beneficial to people. If you dont want your children or your wife or your husband or your mother partaking of it, its not beneficial. Everything you do must be beneficial. Thats a requirement of the business anointing. All products and actions must be beneficial. #4. We shall have excellent customer service. We shall treat each customer as we wish to be treated. Thats fairly selfexplanatory. You need to basically treat other people like you want o be treated. You need to have excellent customer service, service with a smile and be prompt. You understand the value, the benefit and the necessity of having excellent customer service. #5. We shall strive to be the best. In products and service, no one shall offer a better value. When my company will analyze different markets and products, and if we cant make a better product, we dont make it. Its as simple as that. We dont make a product thats just like everyone elses product. It has to be better.

The Business Creed

13

Its a divine mandate that God has given me. Everything we do must be a better value than whats on the market. Now sometimes you may have a situation where you have competition and youre competitively priced. But you need to make it a principle that what you do or what you provide is a better value. Even if its the same product or the same price, you need to add something extra that makes yours better. Even if its a smile it has to be something extra that makes it better so that your competitor and no one can offer a better value. And when they go down the checklist of yours versus your competitor make sure youve got more checks in the Yes column than your competitor. Whatever you do must be a better value and it must be better than your competitor even if its just a minor thing make it better, make it better. We shall strive to be the best. In products and service, no one shall offer a better value. #6. We shall strive to have the best environment. We shall do our best to maintain a spirit of diligence, faithfulness, excellence, trust, peace and harmony that shall transcend the office and spread to our personal relationships. This basically means that when people walk into our offices that there is a spirit that they can feel of joy, harmony, and of peace. That doesnt mean that we run a slack organization, but it does mean that we have an organization that people can feel the unity behind. Whatever you do in your business you want to make to where people are delighted to come to work not where they dread coming to work. Often times that will depend on the spirit that you place as the head of your business in your establishment. All of that will come from the head and how you are and what you insist upon in your organization will determine the spirit of your organization. You want an environment where your employees feel unified and fulfilled because that environment and that spirit transfers to your customers, and they will feel it when they walk into your business they ought to feel something that is different than any other business. Even when the products are the same, sometimes its your point of excellency, your point of superiority. Sometimes its just the spirit that they feel. People will sometimes come across town just to get

14

The Business Anointing

a warm true genuine smile. So we shall strive to have the best environment. #7. We shall improve. Each day, each week, each month, each quarter, each year, each decade we shall strive to be better than we were before. There is a law of nature and physics that simply states nothing ever remains the same. You either get better or you get worse. You will not stay the same. If you do nothing youll deteriorate and get worse. So it is a principle that we constantly strive to improve. Sometimes when you have a success, you have a tendency to rest on your laurels. You rest on what we have done in the past. You relax and go to sleep. If you do that you wake up often times and your business is gone. Theres nothing wrong with taking a break and sitting down for a certain season, but as principle you should always strive to be better. You should always improve, week after week, month after month, year after year; we shall improve. #8. As we are blessed, we shall bless others. This is a principle simply of giving and of helping and it extends far beyond just normal traditional charity giving, but it extends into many areas of your life. As God blesses you and He blesses your business, you are going to have a lot more resources and it will allow you to help people in areas youve never really thought of. As money increases, your ability to do go good increases proportionately. As were blessed we shall bless others. I truly believe without question that this anointing shall empower, enrich and change your business, but it does require that you heed and follow the 8 principles of the business creed. I thank you, and I pray for you and your success as you follow that which God has led. Eight is the number of new beginnings. I pray for your new beginning and your new prosperity with The Business Anointing. God bless you, Pastor Nathaniel

The Power of Gods Hand


If you are in business and you need an increase or you need some doors open, its going to take the word of God and the anointing and the power of God to do it. If you own a business, this is something that will bless and transform your business. Every year on January 1st at 8:00am, we have the business anointing. Now, many of you are already familiar with the business anointing because we had it for the first time in 2010. You heard the announcement and so many of you attended. It was beyond anything that we imagined. I had people coming up to me outside of the church when I was just out in the mall. I even had one lady come up to me with tears in her eyes, and she said that after attending The Business Anointing that their business just began to boom. Now there I was standing in the mall and this lady started crying and started hopping up and down and telling me what happened after the business anointing. We had people tell us that after the business anointing their business increased so much that they had to actually ask God to slow it down because they couldnt even handle the increase. So we have seen the results from the business anointing from testimony after testimony of what happened when God placed his anointing on those businesses. Many of you may know this but for those of you dont who watch us on television, were really business people. Now, I'm a pastor, C. Elijahs a pastor, James is a pastor but our background is really business. I dont get money from the church. I'm not on a salary. I dont take offering from the church. My money comes from business. I'm a business man, thats what I've done for years, thats what my father did and thats what my fathers father did. Were multi-generational business people who just happen to be in

The Business Anointing

ministry; but were business people who are ministers and were able to transfer that anointing unto the people whom we touch. So during The Business Anointing, Ill have my three brothers, my youngest son and my mother along with me. We represent your business. My mother represents your relationship. My mother is 77 years old, she looks good for 77, and shes in good shape. The main reason as to why shes there at The Business Anointing is because she stuck by, supported and was submitted to her husband until the day he left this earth. My mother anoints the couples who come to The Business Anointing. Even if your business booms and your marriage busts dont you know that can mess up your business? So for those of you who are in business and you are married, bring your spouse with you because you need Mother to lay hands on you as a couple at The Business Anointing. My mother anoints the couples who come to The Business Anointing. My son George, the youngest of my four boys, represents legacy. Our business is a multigenerational business. God doesnt just want you to build the businesses. He wants you to build a business and be able to transfer it unto your childrens children. So George represents legacy. He represents your children. And actually God just said to have George come up it wasnt even planned before The Business Anointing and just point to everyone and say God Bless You. No matter what business you are in, if youre shining shoes, somebody else is trying to get the shoe to shine thats feeding your family. If youre cleaning houses, somebody else is trying to get those houses to clean. If you have a restaurant, somebody else is trying to feed your customers. If you cut grass, somebody else is trying to cut that grass. No matter what you do, youve got competition. Even when you watch us on television, it is a battle for viewers. Every station is in a battle for viewers and not only is every station in a battle for viewers, even the television companies. Cable is in a battle with the satellite television. If

youre talking on a cell phone, the cell phone companies are in war trying to get your business. Business is a war! If you want to prosper, if you want to break out of the habits now, if youre going to break out of the mode and if you going to break out of what youve been getting, you need the business anointing and you need the business anointing from someone who's got the business anointing. So for the business anointing this year, we have some things that are a little different than what we did the first year; but they're all better, and they're all what God has spoken for me to do. First of all, we anoint you with oil but this year the oil is a little bit different. When I heard God speak it to me, I said Whoa! God said to make our own anointing oil but to add gold dust to the oil. So were making our oil out of pure virgin olive oil, frankincense, myrrh and real gold. So, were actually going to be anointing you with the same three items that the wise men brought to Jesus. They brought Jesus frankincense, myrrh and gold. So, when we anoint you, you may notice a little glitter on your head. Well, dont go and wash it off right away and thats not some glitter that you buy in the Five & Dime store. The Business Anointing 2011 is being moved from The Ark of Salvation church and its going to be held at the Georgia International Convention Center. This is the big convention center that is just a few blocks down from the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta and thats where we are going to hold the business anointing each year. The church was so packed on the first business anointing that I really didnt believe that wed have enough room. We had all three levels of the church standing room only. The other thing that were doing differently is that we are staggering the business anointing so that when you go to www.thebusinessanointing.com youll be able to register for a particular hour. Instead of having to come and wait for hours as you did before, youll be able to choose the hour that you want to

18

The Business Anointing

come and it will greatly reduce the time that you have to spend. Youre business people, time is money. So when you come to the business anointing, were going to move quickly, were going to get you out of here because your time is valuable. Always understand, there are only 24 hours in a day; President Obama has no more time than you do. Its a fixed commodity, and we shall be very respectful of that. As soon as you are anointed, you are allowed to leave. You dont have to stay through the entire service. Your mission will be complete. Now we of course invite you to stay. Wed love for you to stay, but as soon as you are anointed, youre free to go. So, there's no disrespect involved in that. You get here early; you leave early. It as simple as that. Business people know that time is money, and we dont want to take up your time here all day. So youll be able to select any hour beginning at 8:00am, see the hour slots that are available, choose your time and youll be able to come and you won't have to spend much more than an hour at The Business Anointing on New Years Day beginning at 8:00am. The other thing that God has instructed us to do is to verify as best we can that those who come are supposed to be there and thats exactly what were going to do. I know we had hundreds of people who came before, and they really didnt even have a business. They may have been thinking about going into business. Anointing people is a serious thing. Were called the Ark of Salvation, but do you remember reading in the Bible about the Ark of the Covenant? When people touched the ark who were not supposed to touch it, God struck them dead right on the spot. This anointing is serious and He doesnt want people who are not serious and not even in business coming. Some people just wanted to come just to get the touch. They knew they werent in business. They knew they didnt have a business. They just wanted to come just to be anointed and just to be touched. God says, No, this is for business people or those

The Power of Gods Hand

19

who have definite plans to go into business within the next 12 months. So, when you come to the business anointing, first of all, you will be required to go to the website, register and printout your tickets. Its absolutely free but you will have to have a ticket to get in for every person who comes. So go to airjesus.com and click the business anointing or just go to thebusinessanointing.com choose your time slot and print out your tickets so you can be admitted to The Business Anointing at the Georgia International Convention Center. Now, when you come were going to check your ticket but were also going to check your ID and your business verification. That means you need to have your drivers license and the business card with your name on the card thats on the license. If you havent started your business yet but you have definite plans to begin within the next 12 months, then you need to bring your written detailed business plan. If you go to thebusinessanointing.com, youll find the link there that gives you instructions of how to prepare a business plan if you dont already have one. God is serious about prospering His people but He wants His people serious about being prospered. So were going to verify! Were not doing this out of anger or meanness or trying to be selective. Were trying to do what God told us to do. If hes going to place an anointing on business people, he wants business people getting the anointing. Were going to verify that you legitimately have a business or that you have diligently done your homework to write, create, print and bring your business plan. God wants you in the right spirit, and you dont run business by just showing up. You run business by planning, by making sure you outline things, and by getting your stuff together before you ever open your business doors. God even wants you to do this with the anointing; its not a haphazard irrational thing but something that you think about, something that you plan beforehand.

The Business Anointing

God also said to me, I want you to anoint those in business who are obedient. Obedience is a part of the process. Its not just a matter of you getting touched with the sword and anointed with oil and everything flows smoothly and prosperous from that moment. No, there are criteria; there are stipulations that go along with this, and a major portion of that obedience involves the business creed. The business creed contains the eight principles that you must follow or the anointing becomes void. It is in effect the law that God has mandated. You must have integrity, and you must operate in excellence. If you dont follow that business creed, the anointing becomes null and void. Go to airjesus.com and click the Business Anointing or just go to thebusinessanointing.com. Read the information and get registered, and youll understand that there are some things you have to do. You have to first of all follow the business creed and make a covenant with God. We take no offering at the business anointing. Dont even bring any kind of money. We take no offering, but this is what God has spoken: When and only if you see the supernatural increase, not a normal increase but a supernatural increase, you will return to this house of worship that which you said to God. You make a covenant with God before you get the anointing of what amount you will return to this house of worship, The Ark of Salvation. Most of the time, you have to pay your money before you get something. God says, No, no. You dont pay a dime. If and only when you see the supernatural return, then whatever you covenanted with God, you bring it back to this house after its in your bank account; thats fair enough. For this year for the business anointing, I am truly expecting some awesome things for you and your world. I've seen it in my business. I saw a growth during the past year that was absolutely phenomenal in a time when so many other businesses around us were either stagnant or going down. We knew it was all Gods hand. We worked hard, but there was an anointing that made the difference. Some of you too have been working hard,

The Power of Gods Hand

21

youve been working hard for years but you need the anointing that makes the difference. That anointing is not from us, this is God. I know without question that it is not me who has made our business prosper. I know that it is the divine hand of God without question, and he wants to put this hand upon you, but he says itll come through his human vessels, through oil laden with gold, through the creed that you must keep and through the covenant of what you must return. January 1st, New Years Day, the businessanointing.com If you need your business prospered, increased and transformed, you need to be at The Business Anointing. God is waiting to prosper you!

The Working Womb


Were also going to be providing a different type of gold other than the gold in the anointing oil that were just putting on your head. God basically spoke to me that were going to announce it one year, but well actually begin it on the next business anointing. The first year that we will actually begin it will be 2012 but it will only be available to those who attend the 2011 Business Anointing We had so many businesses to write back with testimonies about how their businesses had prospered, but there was one in particular that really astounded us; it was a miracle. We had one person who made an investment and it returned to the 10s and 10s and 10s of millions of dollars. He asked me to go with him when he converted over his investment. It was on October 1. It was nine months to the day from The Business Anointing. The Business Anointing was on January 1 and millions & millions of dollars on October 1 nine months to the day. In 2012, for everyone who attends The Business Anointing in 2011, you will be eligible to submit to us business proposals. We are going to operate it similar to the television show The Shark Tank. The Shark Tank is a group of business people who made equity investments into businesses. We will invest with money, experience and guidance. I was trying to think of a name for the program. I asked my brothers, C. Elijah and James and they came up with a couple of names, but none of those worked. God said to ask Pastor Salters, so I asked him to come up with a name for the program that we were going to start. He emailed a couple of days later with about 10 names but none of those struck me either. The next day, he walked into my office and said that he had a strange experience that morning. He said that as he was in the bed, God spoke a name

The Business Anointing

to him so clearly and he thinks that its the name that I was asking him to come up with. God spoke the name The Working Womb. The minute that he said it, I knew that we had the name for the new program The Working Womb. It was exactly nine months from The Business Anointing, Jan. 1 to the biggest increase that I had ever seen in my life, Oct. 1. It is exactly the length of time that babies stay in the womb before they are born. This program is for those who attend The Business Anointing on January 1, 2011. Attendees will be able to submit proposals to us for the next business anointing in 2012, and we will choose 4 businesses that we will finance at different levels. Well finance one at a $10,000.00 level, one at a $25,000.00 level, one at $50,000.00 and the last at a $100,000.00 level. So, when God says to put gold dust in the anointing oil, its gold in one form but its also gold in another form. Now what you will have to do in order to participate is to agree to give up the majority control of the business. Let me explain further why this came about. Theres a gentleman who talks about me a lot on the radio so he wont mind me telling this story. His name is Rob Wilson. He is a radio host on WAOK in Atlanta. A lot of people who come to the church often tell me that he talks about me a lot. What he said is, If I had listened to Nathaniel Bronner, Id be a multimillionaire today. Let me give you the background behind that. He came to my office about 20 years ago, and he had an idea for a product. A lot of people come to me with ideas, but I looked at his and said, This is a pretty good idea. I told him that I would back him and put the money into it, and we would bring the product to market.

It was an abdominal exercise product. I told him that we would first do a prototype, and then we would do a television infomercial and run it in one market to make sure everything goes well then take it nationwide. He said, I dont want to do that; I want to build 50,000 of them right now. That isnt a wise idea, I said. You have to build one to make sure that the thing works first. He wanted to build 50,000 of them and go nationwide right away. I said to him, Now if you want to do it that way, youre going to have to get somebody elses money because Im not going to do it that way. Thats not wisdom and you have to test this thing first. So to make a long story short, he didnt take my offer, and he went somewhere else. Everything fell through. A year later the various ab machines began to hit the market and they sold millions. We would have been the first and probably the biggest. To this day thats why he talks about it on the radio that if he had listened to me, he wouldve had a lot more millions, and I wouldve had a lot more millions. Thats the reason I want those of you who are interested in The Working Womb to watch the Shark Tank because it has some very real and sound business principles. Thats the main reason why if we invest in it, we have to be able to advise you how to run it and what to do because thats the difference that Ive seen with experience. Because with Rob Wilsons case, if I had been able to advise him from a different position, hed be a multi-millionaire right now and Id have a lot more millions but because I couldnt advise him what to do with authority we both missed out. Inexperience will often make one do things that sound good to him or her but that just doesnt make a lot of business sense.

The Business Anointing

The Working Womb will be able to actually invest in your business. You can have the greatest idea in the world; but if you dont have the money and business knowledge for it, that idea isnt going anywhere. You need some money. Thats what were going to do along with the business anointing. So when God says to put gold in the oil, the gold was deeper than what I figured. Were going to put gold on your head and for four people, were going to put gold in your bank account with some actual money, and this money comes from my business not the church. This money is business money that will go into your business to help, but the main thing that we will provide is guidance and leadership to tell you which direction to steer because all of us have multimillion dollar businesses that are successful and highly profitable. This is the anointing that we want to be able to place upon you. There will be some specific instructions that will help you on www.TheWorkingWomb.com whether you need financing or not. We have the YEP (Youth Entrepreneur Program) at The ARK of Salvation watch The Shark Tank because it trains you extremely well on some of the principles of business. Although The Shark Tank is not available for purchase yet, you can watch the series here: http://www.oochoo.com/page/2/?s=shark+tank http://www.oochoo.com/?s=shark+tank You will be required to watch at least seven of the 14 available Shark Tank episodes and choose the best and worst business from each of the seven episodes that you watch and write a brief reason why they are the best and worse. More information about The Working Womb can be found online at theworkingwomb.com by March 31, 2011.

Questions and Answers

28

The Business Anointing

not be solicited, badgered or in any way pressured to give any money. If you give, it must be from the supernatural increase, and you must come back or send it back and give it without being reminded by The ARK. We ask that you not take this from your regular giving or commitment at your current church. This is in addition to and is only owed on the supernatural increase which is an increase above and beyond normal business patterns. Q: Can I attend if I am not in business? A: You may attend if you meet either of two conditions: #1- If you are already in business. #2- If you have definite plans to be in business before the anointing year ends. This means that you know WHAT business you are going in and WHEN and you are actively planning on starting before the anointing year ends. The Business Anointing is ONLY for those who are ALREADY in business and their spouses or those who are actively planning to be in business BEFORE the anointing year ends and their spouses. We respectfully ask that if you are not in business already or do not definitely plan to be in business by the years end please do not attend until you are sure and ready. We have been divinely instructed to do all that we can do to make sure that everyone is in obedience who receives The Business Anointing. Therefore we will validate you as you enter. YOU MUST have a business card or other proof of business with your drivers license to be admitted. This is a spiritual matter of obedience so please do not violate what God has spoken. It is only for those who are in business during that year. If you plan to go in business someday but you really arent going to be in business before the anointing year ends then please

wait until the year that you are prepared and sure. We welcome you on that years New Years Day at 8 AM. Q: Why do I need to bring proof of business or plans? A: Many people will come to The Business Anointing even if they have no business or concrete plans to start a business during that year. We dont want to anoint the disobedient. If you have a business you should have a business card with your name on it. Thats a matter of excellence. If you plan to start your business you should have a written plan, that is diligence and planning. You need the plan for you much more than you need it for us. A plan shows that you are willing to put forth the effort to think, plan and write in detail what it will take to start and make your business successful. Microsoft Corporation, founded by one of the richest men in the world, Bill Gates, states: If you haven't written your plan yet, your business is still in the fantasy stages. There are several books and online resources that show you how to write a good business plan. If you are not already in business, YOU MUST BRING YOUR PRINTED BUSINESS PLAN to be admitted. Q: How do I print my tickets? A: Once you register, your tickets are sent to you by Email. You can also log in at any time and print your tickets. Q: Why should I bring my spouse and does my spouse have to be in the business with me? A: It is not mandatory that you bring your spouse but spouses are very important, not just for business but for life in general. If the two of you are on one accord, it will greatly increase the probability of success. If you are fussing, fighting and

disagreeing, it will seriously weaken you and increase the chances of the business failing. Your spouse does not have to be in your business with you. Q: Is the spousal anointing the same anointing? A: No. It is different. The spousal anointing is performed by Robbie Bronner, the mother of six sons, including the Brothers of The WORD and the wife of the founder of Bronner Bros. No sword is used for the spousal anointing. Below is the note that Robbie Bronner sent concerning her portion and revelation: Pastor Nathaniel, You had asked me to anoint the spouse of the business owner and after I heard you tell what God had told you to say over the Owner, I had to go to God to know what to say over the spouse. Of course, I just felt you wanted me to do it because your Dad and I had worked together as ONE. Last night as I bowed my knees in prayer, I asked God to tell me what I must say over the spouse. After a few minutes, the statement your father spoke to me before marriage came strongly into my mind. He told me, "If I have one person To Think, To Do, and To Believe as I believe, there will be nothing impossible for us to achieve." I already knew I had to use the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, the three being ONE, to bring oneness to the spouses. I left the prayer opened to God to show me in the night what was His way. Oh my! The names of Ananias and Sapphira (husband and wife team in business) in the Bible came so vividly with the morning light that I had to get up and read Acts, Chapter

5. Pastor, I was troubled because this is GOD and this is SERIOUS BUSINESS! Do the people registering for The Business Anointing" really know what they are getting ready to do? They should read Acts Chapter 5 to really know what God is saying. ~Robbie Bronner Q: What if the spouse attends alone or if both attend and only the spouse is interested in participating? A: Then only the spouse would be anointed and only with the spousal anointing. Although it is always better if both are in unison, if the spouse wants the spousal anointing and the owner fits the qualification of owning a business, the spouse is welcome. The owner does not have to abide by the three requirements if only the spouse receives the spousal anointing and the business owner is not anointed with The Business Anointing. The reason is simple; the spousal anointing is for unity and oneness of purpose and vision. The Business Anointing is for divine supernatural prosperity with integrity and excellence. Although both are highly desirable, they are quite different. Therefore the spousal anointing does not require adherence to the requirements for The Business Anointing. Q: Can I bring my children? A: Yes, if they are working in the business with you, but you MUST register and print tickets for them. We are family and believe in family business and legacy. We prefer that you wait until they are actually involved in the business before bringing them. Remember, The Business Anointing is every year so we will be ready when they are. Q: What if I have multiple businesses or endeavors? A: The Business Anointing is not based on one business but is a general business anointing for any business that you engage in as long as you abide by The Business Creed for that business.

The Business Anointing

Q: I dont live in the same city, state or country. Can I get The Business Anointing any other way? A: As people from other countries asked this question, we prayed for an answer. We understand the difficulty of traveling a far distance. Gods answer was that we are not granted the power for a distance Word anointing. The anointing must be transferred by the anointing of oil directly and the touch of the swords. Jesus was able to heal by just sending the Word, but we simply havent been granted that level of anointing for The Business Anointing. It may also be related to the power of pilgrimage. We have often received a greater blessing when we have made the sacrifice to travel a great distance. We seem to get greater benefit when we make the sacrifice to travel to an event. When the prophetic confirmation was given for The Business Anointing, we drove to another state and received a phenomenal Word and anointing. We had to travel a great distance. Pilgrimage is a very important spiritual principle. So unfortunately (or fortunately when you get an anointing that transforms your business) you will have to physically be present at The ARK no matter what the distance. Q: Do I need to attend each year? A: That depends upon whether you feel you need the anointing and blessing each year. When you see the results one year, then you should continue as long as you are in business. Q: How long is the service? A: When you register, you choose a one-hour time slot. You need to arrive 30 minutes before your time slot. Although The Business Anointing may last many hours, you will only be required to stay long enough for you to get anointed. Each person is individually anointed; it is not a group anointing. Although words are corporately spoken over the group, each businessperson and spouse is individually touched and spoken over one at a time.

You may leave as soon as you are anointed. You are not required to stay until the end of the service. Anointing will begin from the front to the back so those who sit closest to the front will be anointed first. When you register, you will be emailed a ticket with your chosen time slot so that your wait will be minimized. We respect your time. Time is money. Q: How should I dress? A: Although there is no mandatory dress requirement, for the proper spirit of anointing we suggest that you dress the way you dress when conducting your business. If you own a restaurant and you are the chef, dress in your chef uniform. If you are a doctor, wear your doctors coat and stethoscope. If you own an auto repair shop, wear your mechanics jumpsuit. Dress the way you dress when doing business. Q: Where should I sit when I arrive? A: Sit as close to the front as possible. If you normally sit near the back or middle this causes a change of mentality and position as your business prepares to move from the back or middle to the front. Sit where you want your business to go. Q: What time should I arrive? A: There are always three different arrival times: early, on time and late. Arrive in the time frame consistent with the way that you want your blessings to flow: early, on time or late. Plan to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your time slot on your ticket. Doors open at 6 AM. The Business Anointing is an anointing but with the anointing comes changes in behavior. Q: Suppose I have other questions? A: You may contact us with your questions at: 120 Selig Dr. Atlanta, GA 30336 or call 404-OUT-REACH.

The Business Anointing

...and One More Thing ================= I was in Wal-Mart. She recognized me and said that she was attending The Business Anointing with her husband. She asked me a few questions about the event, said "Goodbye" and walked away. Ten minutes later she found me in another aisle halfway across the store. "Pastor Bronner, I'm sorry to bother you but I just must tell you this," and she began to tell her story: I was about to file divorce papers. I had just had it. My husband and I were really going through a rough time and I was just about to call it quits. We have six children, two together and four from our prior marriage. God woke me up early one morning around 4am and I just couldn't get back to sleep. I turned on the TV. Your ministry broadcast was coming on and I was just asking God could He please let me go back to sleep. I then heard you say something about marriage so I instantly perked up to hear what you had to say. I listened to the message. I later downloaded it to my phone and listened to it four of five more times. Do you remember the message; it was about the 3 steps to fix a marriage. "Yes, I remember it," I said. Well, I listened and then I decided to do the 3 steps without telling my husband. I wanted to change me first so I did. After I started with the 3 steps and had been doing well with them, one night I put my phone on the pillow and asked him to listen.

When you began talking about the 3 steps he thought that he knew each step that was coming up but he was wrong each time. We both agreed to do the 3 steps. Before the 3 steps we were in separate beds, in separate bedrooms and nearly busted up. One night as I was about to begin fussing about something he said, "Don't we need to step outside of the bedroom to talk about this?" I burst out laughing. I had to come find you and tell you this. It's been months now since I heard about the 3 steps and our marriage is still together and getting stronger.

The reason that my husband and I are attending The Business Anointing is because my husband said that he wanted to go after seeing what the 3 steps did for our marriage. And one more thing...
