SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 25
Scripture: Luke 16:8-11
Jesus commended the unjust steward as being more shrewd than the sons of light, but it is obvious He was being facetious because He states in verse 9, “And I say to you, make friends for yourselves by unrighteous mammon, that when you fail, they may receive you into an everlasting home.” Jesus is pointing out the fact that the mammon-based motivation for the steward’s actions guarantees a place for him in hell forever. The ultimate penalty for those who corrupt their office is eternity in a very hot place. God is not fooling around when it comes to this issue because He is very serious about the condition of His church. In Luke 16:10,11 Jesus says, “He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much; and he who is unjust in what is least is unjust also in much. Therefore if you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?” The greatest test that we ever have to face is the mammon test because it is the key to the true riches of the presence and anointing of God in our lives. The only other spirit that competes directly with the Father for worship is the spirit of mammon. We cannot serve them both, therefore we have to choose. We are responsible for our own choice. Bowing to the spirit of mammon proved to be a capital offence for Ananias and Sapphira! There is a great transition coming – the true riches are about to be poured out. When the true comes, mixed-seed cannot stand in His presence. That is the anointing we are looking forward to seeing in manifestation and it is knocking at the door of the church.
