Scripture: Luke 16:10-13
It is very plain in this passage that the contrast between God and satan is over the issue of money. Satan uses love of money as a counterfeit Holy Spirit. For those who say “yes” to God they receive the Holy Spirit and they prove that they don’t worship money. The greatest proof of that in the last days is going to be a church that executes justice in the financial arena. Executing covenantal Biblical justice means that we pray God’s hand upon the perverse and the vile who use money to promote what destroys the land. We pray them into bankruptcy. We pray God’s hand upon them to remove everything they have. Is there a Biblical example for that? There certainly is! His name is Elijah and he prayed Israel’s economy closed for three and a half years to remove the prophets of Baal. James 5:17 and 18 encourage us to do the same!
