Creflo Dollar — Unmasking the Spirit of Mammon
So the mammon is the spirit that operates in the world system. Mammon is the spirit that is responsible for something being worldly. And what Jesus was saying in Luke chapter sixteen and verse 13, "Separate yourself from this. Get away from this spirit, because it's trying to drive you completely away from God.
Mammon wants to stop heaven's vision from manifesting on the earth. Any time somebody has a problem with your prosperity, mark them. Any time somebody has got a problem with your promotion, mark them. Because if you find somebody that has a problem with your prosperity, those are gonna be the same people that are gonna betray you and steal from you and hurt you because you didn't pay attention when you should have paid attention.
Mammon is a spirit. It is the spirit that operates in this world, in these United States of America. It is the spirit that may operate in your home. It is the spirit that you may have been trained in.
It is the spirit that was behind the fall of Babylon, where Babylon in its day, in its heyday, had a very unhealthy relationship with the material realm, where God was absolutely not their source. They totally depended on the materials and the money in that world to meet their needs, but there was a spirit behind that money.
The love of money is the root of all evil. Notice, it's the love of money, a wrong relationship with money. What is the love of money? The love of money is when you trust it more than you trust God, and that's the spirit of mammon that moves you to do that.
You trust money more than you trust God, you trust money for your healing, you trust money for your happiness, you trust money for everything, he says that's the root of all evil, "Which while some coveted after."
