GOD the Spirit pressed us to relay some
pertinent Spirit induced material for
your perusal-study thru prayer/fasting.
GOD's new Wal-Mart will Not slow down, quite the contrary,
His business strategy will grow Wal-Mart into a global
service organisation of which retail is a component part.
GOD's Bible-based free-market principles ensure Value for
Consumer is always the goal to broaden the consumer base,
to satisfy the community, to provide fair-just ROI, to glorify Him.

"Wal-Mart Is Going Upscale" by Tracie Rozhon
The New York Times - Friday, April 8, 2005
GOD has built Wal-Mart for Himself, broadly-loosely
guiding Sam Walton to plant +3000 competitive stores.
GOD's enemies are increasingly attacking His raw work,
forcing Wal-Mart to refine and seek His supreme ways.
GOD's New Wal-Mart will better serve communities and
more equitably benefit all qualified-worthy workers.
L.A. county study argues $3.76 billion savings p.a. in S. Calif.,
and creating up to 36,000 jobs thru Wal-Mart in the L.A. area.

GOD's New Wal-Mart will witness greater customer service
as He progressively draws workers into healthy, moral lifestyles.

2Tim2..19 Nevertheless the solid foundation of GOD stands, having this seal: "The LORD knows those who are His," and, "Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity."
20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor.
21 Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.
22 Flee also youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the LORD out of a pure heart.

23 But avoid foolish and ignorant disputes, knowing that they generate strife.
24 And a servant of the LORD must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient,
25 in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if GOD perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth,
26 and they may come to their senses out of the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to his will.

GOD's New Wal-Mart will maximise ROI(profits)
thru Spirit guided strategies to become the premier retail
chain globally, offering superior in-house design + quality
upscale store brands to optimise productivity and customer base.
to eliminate 2004 type slumps.

    "We are disappointed with our sales performance for the Friday after Thanksgiving and the full weekend," said Mona Williams, vice president of communications for Wal-Mart. "While our prices were generally as low as they have ever been, our competition was even more aggressive. Also in hindsight we can see our overall program was too predictable and our competition capitalized on this. Specifically, our store hours, newspaper advertising-circular layout and distribution, marketing strategies and especially our merchandising selection were too similar to [those of] years past."
