There are two spirits that are influencing the body of Christ.  One is to take you to poverty and the other is to keep you in want.  This is usually passed down through generations.  The poverty spirit usually is the one that keeps a person making bad decisions.

The Bible tells us, “My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge.”  It didn’t say a lack of money but a lack of knowledge.  Yet you teach people to give the tithe and they don’t like it and tell you they can’t afford to tithe and it’s because there is much food in the tillage of the poor and they won’t make the right decisions.  They will let want cause them to buy a dress or a suit and instead of obeying God’s ways to prosper them because that spirit is designed to keep a person wanting.

Mark 12:41-42 (KJV) And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much. 42 And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing. 43 And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury: 44 For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living.

This widow was poor, and she was tired of making bad decisions.  The best decision she could have made was to listen to Jesus and sow a seed.  That’s all.

Want, those are spirits and they try and suggest to you that you can’t give the tithe when you just spent a hundred dollars on the lottery. God’s people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge.

These two spirits of want and poverty run together all the time.  Lots of God’s people are making plenty of money and it’s a shame the condition of their bank accounts. I pray God’s people will wise up and no longer be destroyed by these spirits that take them to poverty, keep them in want and keep them making bad decisions.
