Spirit of Poverty – Final Lesson!

Well, here we are at the final lesson on the Spirit of Poverty.  I hope you’ve been able to keep up, and that this has changed the way you view your life, and your current circumstances!

Today we’re going to look at how to get out of the bondage of this spirit.  Here are Bill’s words:

How to Overcome the SPIRIT of POVERTY

The Bible teaches about poverty and its effects on people.  To write or speak about a spirit of poverty does not fall into the arena of prosperity teaching.   A spirit of poverty has nothing to do with how much anyone owns what they eat or wear.  A spirit of poverty can oppress, and not infrequently does, wealthy people.  Many people below the “poverty level” are not oppressed by this spirit. It has nothing to do with wealth or lack of it.  It is related to greed and fear of loss.

A spirit of poverty can be defined as a demonic spirit empowered by iniquity and sin in the areas of giving and receiving.  It operates generationally through iniquity; therefore it is a familiar (or family-line) spirit.  This spirit is related to Belial, the destroyer, described in Psalm 18:4 and 2 Corinthians 6:15.  A spirit of poverty is a condition in a person, a people, and / or a land.
