Money and Spiritual Warfare

The Bible has a great deal to say about spiritual warfare and also about money but what many do not realise is how closely these are related. When you read through the Gospels and the Book of Acts you discover how often money and spiritual conflict are connected. Often times, the greatest opposition to the spread of the Gospel came not from the political or religious authorities but from the financial quarter.Jesus connects spiritual authority with our use of money (Luke 16:10-12). He says that if we are not trustworthy with financial and material things then we will not be trusted withspiritual riches. The issue isn't about whether God loves us, of course He does, but when it comes to ministry the question is how much can He trust us?If money has control over our lives we become ineffective and untrustworthy in God's purposes. Like a police officer who can be paid off or a judge who can be bought we may function but will never fulfil our calling in God.A truly biblical understanding of money and wealth can be summed up by: You cannot serve God and money but you can serve God with it. We are not to serve money but rather money is to serve us. Wealth and wealthier does not equal prosperity. Biblical prosperity is not just about your standard of living. It is about your whole quality of life.We cannot buy God's favour but meanness of spirit becomes a blockage to what God desires to do. Worshipping God is not just about singing, it's about a lifestyle of giving, (Romans 12:2). It's not only taking out our song books it's also getting out our cheque books. A church where the offerings are miserly because the people do not give will never be effective for God. There is a story of a theology student who was wrestling with a question he had on the book of Revelation. He couldn't understand what was represented by the ",book that no one could open",. He went to his minister for advice. ",That's simple,", said the minister, ",it must be the cheque book.",If money has control over our lives, we become ineffective and untrustworthy in God's purposes. When money is our master then we will never experience all God has for us. This book will give insights into money, how it has power over us and how we can gain power over money so that it becomes a servant of God and not the master of us.David Holdaway's book explains and expounds the topics he covers with insight, humour and an easy to understand style that draws you in from the very start. This book will make you think but more than that - it will change the way you think about money, finance and God's Kingdom. Understanding and applying these truths will change your life.
