Divine insight: Money and the church


Money is basically a measurement of value. It’s a unit that is used to measure the value of a commodity. Money, in actuality is a spirit. The paper is the physical representation of the spiritual substance called money. This substance is controlled by a god called mammon, as Jesus said.

To understand the dynamics of money and how it works, we have to understand that money is not an end in itself, but a means to an end. The voice of money is what gives it expression in the physical. But its essence is spiritual (the essence is spiritual and the voice is physical). We see people trading because they would have tapped into the essence of money and the essence of money is currency showing us there is always a flow. Money is always in movement. Many pray for money, but money is about position not prayer. Prayer may help you locate the position and with wisdom you can position yourself so that you can trap the money.

As believers, if we are to change the flow of currency from the world’s systems to our systems as the church. We have to observe the set principles which are working, giving and occupying spaces where currency flows are high. Are you positioned in a place where you can trap money. The doctrine of wealth transfer is powerful but we have believers asking God for the wealth of the unrighteous and yet they don’t have traps or ways or business where that money can flow into. It’s not about prayer alone, we need Christians in the market place.

The spiritual value of money is universal because money is a spirit and what we do as children of God is to follow principles laid down for us to be able to trap this resource (tithing, first fruits, giving and seeds). The Bible says when you give your tithes, windows are opened and when you study or interpret windows from the word you discover that it is where light comes in through. Light is Revelation, so the Bible is saying when you give your tithe and offerings,  ideas will flow. Ideas become the net to trap money. Sometimes the reason your don’t have is because you don’t have a net. A lot of believers pray for money but yet they don’t have anything that can be used as a trap for the money.

We need money as believers because money amplifies a person’s influence and gives them a voice. Money is attracted to a vision and structure. It flows towards laid-down infrastructure. The Bible says Ecc 10:19 (KJV) A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry: but money answereth all things.

Money answers all things and at times in the hands of a fool answers the wrong questions. Terrorists have killed thousands of people because they had the financial resources to do so. So money answered the needs they had for bombs and guns. Money’s voice is abused and in the wrong hands answers the wrong question.

The Bible declares creation is waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God. Money is one of those creatures and is crying out for being used to kill and for drugs. Money is crying because it knows in the hands of a believer it will be used to save lives. Money answers all things. It must, therefore, be given a voice in the things of God.

God bless you.
