Highlights from Sandie Freed's Crushing the Spirits of Greed and Poverty: Chapter 3

I continue sharing my notes from reading the life changing book by Sandie Freed.  Click on the image to learn more. These are just my  highlights, there is so much more. I believe the content here is key to unlocking issues that has held me, others and communities back for years.

Chapter 3 Iniquity, Tyre and the Seats of Authority

Iniquity began in the heart of satan. His iniquity was to distort, be perverted and unrighteous.

If we bow down to an idol of any type, we are cursed again with inquity.  Inquity is linked with idolatry.  If a man bows down to a graven image there is a curse of inquity on the man and his descendants to the third and fourth generation.  If you notice a family bent or pattern like perversion or addictions, these are generational iniquities.

Iniquity causes us to be separate from God. If we know inquity is there and we do nothing or encourage it we are opening doors to the demonic attacks and bondage and we are closing the door to the Lord.

Pergamos was wicked, a place where satan was able to establish his reign. It was a city of great wealth but the wealth was used for lavishing temples and idols.  If money is used in ungodly ways, Mammon is active.

Tyre---an island so wealthy it was the Wall Street of its day.  To maintain their wealth they worshipped Baal. Tyre founded on idolatry, false beliefs, antichrist thinking. Tyre meant rock and attached to the rock was selfishness, pride, arrogance, jealousy, covetousness.  Tyre is the ungodly king of trade, wealth and commerce.

Anytime we are feeling we can fend for ourselves without God’s help we are committing idolatry.

Wall Street: Satan influences “kings” of the world to build abominations: centers of economic powers that serve as idols.

The King of Tyre was brought down because his love of money was greater than his love for God. He trusted Mammon.  We have been seduced to trust money more than God.

Revelation 2 gives keys on how to unlock doors of victory against perversion of Pergamos and Satans’s seat.
  1. Repent
  2. Speak God’s word. Proclaim. This unseats satan from his misplaced position of authority.
