The Key To Defeating Mammon Part 2

When you fear lack you are saying that you are incomplete, not perfect.

A state of nothing lacking is therefore the destination point.

But God’s Word makes it clear that we are already in our destination point. Your spirit man was made perfect i.e. complete in Christ.

YHWH is your Shepherd, therefore you do not lack. In the New Covenant, YHWH lives IN you and lives AS you when you allow His Spirit full sway in your life. It is HIS Life lived in you and through you AS you.

So the One who knows no lack lives in you and you in Him.

When you come to an understanding of this, it is impossible for lack to remain in your life.

Confessing that as He is, so are we is the key because it is a confession we are at telios, our destination point.

Recognising you are already like Him is the key to the new paradigm that the Lord wants us to walk in. It is the key to the realm of perfect love, of unlimited power and unhindered blessing.

It is the key to the Church of Philadelphia, the church of brotherly love.

Eve forgot she was perfectly like her Maker so when the serpent came along telling her she lacked one thing to be like God, she bought the lie of lack.

As a result, lack entered the human race.

Forgetting your Maker is the trapdoor into serving mammon. This is clear when you see Deuteronomy chapter 8:-

Beware that thou forget not YHWH thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day:

Lest when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt therein;

And when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied;

Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget YHWH thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage; DEUTERONOMY 8:11-14 KJV

When you forget YHWH, you are forgetting that He made you in His image and likeness. You then allow yourself to be degraded into the rat race of mammon and start giving yourself credit for any achievements you have.

Since mammon is ruled by fear of lack, this becomes your driving force, your “god” in that you serve it in bondage.

People in the mammon kingdom do not acknowledge God or serve Him.

Serving God means you look to Him as your Source. You cannot do this with a fearful heart so you must cast out fear. Perfect love casts out fear and this love is developed by telling yourself over and over that you are already perfect like Him, that you have reached telios point, in other words.

You must KNOW you are as He is. Fear has no foothold on your finances if you walk in consciousness of your identity.

Lack does not exist in the glory. If you were to leave this existence on earth you would leave behind any poverty, lack or debt which had attached itself to you.

So lack is subject to change because it is temporal.

Lack comes through fear and it is the fear of lack which compels everyone in the system of mammon.

Fear of lack is the same as fear of death.

Jesus became like us to deliver us from this fear – the master fear (Hebrews 2:15). He took on Him human nature and a flesh and blood body to deliver us from mammon.

That deliverance is complete when we acknowledge He took our sin nature and gave us His righteousness.

This is why the things that people strive for under the bondage of mammon are added to us when we become aware of His righteousness i.e. we are just like Him!

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. MATTHEW 6:33 VW

This doesn’t mean put God first. It means you must be aware of God’s dominion and your right and authority to supply – because you are just like Him!

Natural-minded thinking baulks at the idea that man can be like God. But it is God Himself who made us in His likeness!

Jesus was crucified for claiming He was like His Father.

The bold statement that you are EXACTLY like your Father in heaven and Jesus will not only accelerate your spiritual development, it is the key to victory over the system that holds all mankind in bondage.

When enough people walk in this truth, we will see the long-foretold destruction of the Babylonian system and the Kingdom of God abundance economy firmly established on earth.

The Key To Defeating Mammon

Jesus cut through the illusions that many live under when He declared that you cannot serve God and mammon.

The implication being that every human serves one or the another.

There is no opt-out, middle way or neutral position. There is no Switzerland in the spirit – you are either serving one kingdom or another.

You either serve God or mammon i.e. the devil.

Now this isn’t a division along lines of the new birth. Jesus is not talking about spiritual parentage; He is talking about the practicalities of life.

You can be a Christian, in other words, and serve the devil.

The difference is what you are functioning in.

Jesus clearly demonstrated in Matthew chapter 6 that you serve mammon by functioning in fear.

Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ MATTHEW 6:31 LEB

Worrying about supply is meditation in the fear word of satan. And it is classed by The Master as serving mammon!

If worrying and being fearful is serving mammon, that means functioning in faith is how you serve God.

It’s interesting that Jesus’ focus is on who people serve, not the actual results. Many rich people obviously serve mammon because no matter how rich they get, they worry about losing it.

Fear of lack is serving mammon.

Faith for supply is serving God.

Romans 14:23 tells us that whatever is not of faith is sin. Sin is therefore the product of fear.

Faith produces righteousness (Rom 5:1,2) and fear therefore produces sin.

Since the love of money is the root of all evil, we can safely say this: serving mammon equals fear equals the love of money.

You serve mammon when you fear lack and this leads to the love of money.

The key to serving God is therefore to have faith for supply. This necessitates being absolutely free from fear and worry concerning finances.

So how do you get to this place where you are free from fear and thus in position to function in faith?

There is a shortcut to ridding yourself of fear and rendering mammon powerless in your life. Here it is in 1 John chapter 4:-

Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. 1 JOHN 4:17,18 KJV

Fear is the atmosphere that mammon thrives in. But there is NO FEAR in love. So love is the environment in which God’s Kingdom thrives.

Perfect love casts out fear. We could say it like this: Perfect love casts out mammon and the love of money.

Love is perfected in us by consciousness of being one with YHWH. As He is, so are we in this world. “He is” is, of course, what YHWH means.

As YHWH, so are we in this world. We are just like the Father and Jesus. You perfect yourself in love by telling yourself this. “Perfect” here doesn’t mean morally perfect or competently perfect; it means mature, of full age or to have reached the destination point.

You must retain and walk in consciousness of who you are if you are to break free from mammon.

You are made in the image and likeness of God. Eve forgot this in the garden and allowed the fear of lack to convince her she was lacking something. The serpent convinced her there was lack in her life and that she lacked something to be like God.

But Eve was already perfectly like God!

And God has no lack in Him!

If you are AS HE IS, then you have no lack either and therefore nothing to fear.

Lack is temporary and often an illusion anyway.You certainly have no lack in the glory realm.

Fear of lack is satan’s biggest parlour trick. That is why the Bible is emphatic that you do not lack.

It all comes down to consciousness. You will walk in the thing you give most attention to.

You either focus on the serpent’s lies that God has left you short or the Father’s Word that superabundance is yours.

Remember that you manifest what you are feeding your inner man.

What you feed your inner man determines who it is that you actually serve.

Feed yourself with faith and all things will be added to you. Feed yourself with fear and you will have something to worry about!
