The natural power of wealth has influenced every society from the beginning of history. Money has been at the center of the rise and fall of every great empire. Whoever controlled the wealth could control governments and nations.
The god of this world, Satan, has held on to the wealth in the earth with a clinched fist. He has manipulated and controlled multitudes through greed and materialism. He has gripped the earth’s wealth as though it were all his—but it is not.
Notice what Psalm 24:1 says who the earth’s wealth belongs to. It says, “The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein” (NKJV). Again in First Corinthians 10:26 it says, “For the earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it” (NLT).
All that is in the earth ultimately belongs to God. Yet, He did not create it for Himself, He created it for His family to enjoy—that’s you and me!
The time has come when God is moving the earth’s wealth out of the control of the wicked and ungodly, and into the hands of His family.
Satan’s stronghold is about to be exposed and destroyed. The control of the earth’s finances is shifting and being transferred into the hands of those who will honor God with it.
Among many religious people there has long been a sense that wealth was dangerous and certainly could not be spiritual. It has been blamed for corruption, compromise, and the endangering of all that is holy.
Yet, wealth and money do not cause evil. Notice what First Timothy 6:10 says, “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows” (KJV).
It is not money that causes evil, but the love of money. There are many poor people who fall into this category. Money only amplifies the inner qualities someone already possesses.
If there are deep-rooted flaws in a person’s character, once they receive wealth those flaws will come to the surface and be seen. Jesus said, “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you” (Matthew 6:33 NKJV). When a person has the money to do what he wants, we will find out what he really wanted all along.
However, if our hearts are turned toward God, and His will is the desire of our hearts, natural wealth will become the tool that amplifies God’s plan that is to be accomplished through our lives. Then these plans will move from existing only in our hearts to manifesting in our lives. The projects the Lord has given people: the vision for ministry, land, equipment, and all the other things needed to fulfill the calling of God can now be financed.
