What is mammon? Mammon comes from the Syrian god of riches, the god of finances and wealth. The god of mammon is worshipped. It means something you can put your trust in, something you can lean on for your life. It also means greed. It means riches.
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Matt 6:24
Here is what the Spirit of Mammon says:
- (Mammon) says you can trust me
- (Mammon) says you don’t have enough
- (Mammon) says you can have security and safety with more of me
- (Mammon) says you will be respected and have significance if you have more of me
- (Mammon) says you will have power with me
- (Mammon) says you need more and you deserve more
- (Mammon) says you will have comfort and contentment with more of me
- (Mammon) says you don’t want to lose me
- (Mammon) says you don’t need God, I can offer you everything which God offers you
- (Mammon) says you can have financial freedom with me
- (Mammon) says you can be independent with me
Ephesians 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Mammon is against Christ. Mammon is a Spirit of Antichrist which competes for the Lordship of your life. Mammon competes for your heart, loyalty, trust and worship. The Spirit of Mammon wants to control and own you.
Money is neutral and just a piece of paper. However, the Spirit of Mammon is demonic and seeks control over your life. You cannot serve two masters.
Jesus Christ is all you need. HE redeemed you, saved you, healed you, restored you, forgave you and reconciled you to HOLY GOD. HE is the only one who can offer you victory over condemnation, sin and fear. HE is the only who gives you eternal life. HE will never leave you nor forsake you. HE loves you unconditionally.
Are you going to trust the false promises of the Spirit of Mammon or trust the Creator of the Universe who gave HIS only son as a gift for you so that you can have all these promises truly in HIM? HE gives you all you need: safety, protection, security, provision, comfort, peace and true identity as a Child of the King.
