Scripture: Luke 4:5-7
We are told in Luke 4:5-7, “Then the devil taking Him up on a high mountain, showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said to Him, ‘All this authority I will give You, and their glory; for this has been delivered to me, and I give it to whomever I wish. Therefore if you will worship before me, all will be Yours.’” The reason Jesus bought and paid for the anointing to spoil is because the foundation is the love of money. The foundation of satan’s kingdom is the love of money, and he is willing to give great wealth to all those who will bow and worship him, yielding to that spirit. What the Holy Spirit is to the church, money is to satan. He uses money and manipulation to counterfeit the work of the Holy Spirit and he gains worship through it. The real reason that spoil is so much a part of both the Old Testament and the New is that God is committed to judging the spirit of mammon and that has to come through the church. Are we ready for that battle?
