Scripture: James 5:1-3
James 5:1-3 says, “Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries that are coming upon you! Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten. 3 Your gold and silver are corroded, and their corrosion will be a witness against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have heaped up treasure in the last days.” This is the beginning of a judgment that the church gets to execute which spans from Genesis to James. It is all the way through Scripture. It is in Isaiah 53:12. Jesus died for an anointing to spoil. And in the last days, the people who are hoarding or have heaped up treasure for the last days, the church will get to pray a transfer of their wealth they have hoarded out of their hands and into the hands of the godly in order to provide the needed resources to fund the harvest of nations. That is one of the things that Jesus died for and He has assigned for the end-times. If we pass the money test, we get to execute judgment on those who hoard for evil purposes. They cannot keep what they have hoarded. If you and I pass the money test like Moses, Samuel and Paul, there comes a day when we get to pray a transfer of wealth. And God is going to honor it! Let us have the integrity to pass the money test in every way, shape and form. Let us not take, not hurt and obey what God tells us to do. Let us give where He tells us to give, how much he tells us to give and choose to honor the covenant of the tithe. It is wisdom and it is a foundation for having a priesthood like Samuel. Jesus said it in Matthew 23:23, “These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone.” If Jesus said it and put His approval on it, then it really is New Testament. If we are going to pass the money test, we have to say yes to the covenant of the tithe. That issue is between each of us and the Lord. But I want to see the church be able to function as Kings and Priests that can move God’s Hand. I want to see the promised wealth transfer bringing in a harvest of nations. It is promised, it is available, but we have to pay the price in obedience and character development to be able to pray it in. The reward is great and we will see it, in Jesus’ name.
