Scripture: James 5:1-3
James 5:1-3 states, “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. 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 judgment on all those who disobeyed what Jesus said in Matthew 6. All those who try to build treasure here on earth accumulate gold and silver for themselves. “Treasure” is the same word that is used in Matthew 6 where it says, “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth…” All those in the church who have followed Matthew 6 have the authority to pray that what evil people have hoarded will eat their flesh like fire. Every single believer who has been obedient in making heaven their storehouse has a potential ability to pray this over all those who have heaped up treasure for selfish, earthly gain. Look at all those who are using their wealth to destroy the nation and God’s Kingdom? When God directs, let’s pray James 5:1-3 over every single individual who gives their wealth to advance evil. Praying this specific judgment will bring an amazing transfer of wealth. The question is, have we done what Matthew 6 says? Have we refused to hoard and instead laid up treasure in heaven? If we have, then we are perfectly positioned by the Holy Spirit to execute the judgment that is called ‘the anointing to spoil’!
