Scripture: 1 Chronicles 26:26-28. Proverbs 8:21
1 Chronicles 26:26-28 says, “This Shelomith and his brethren were over all the treasuries of the dedicated things which King David and the heads of fathers’ houses, the captains over thousands and hundreds, and the captains of the army, had dedicated. Some of the spoils won in battles they dedicated to maintain the house of the Lord. And all that Samuel the seer, Saul the son of Kish, Abner the son of Ner, and Joab the son of Zeruiah had dedicated, every dedicated thing, was under the hand of Shelomith and his brethren.” We see under King David a specific group of Levites who are called and commissioned to become treasurers. There was an abundance of giving God did through the people in preparing to build the type and shadow temple. Treasurers were needed in order to handle the magnitude of wealth and material that the Israelites presented for the building. This is a prophetic picture of what is going to be needed in the last days. A number of years ago the Lord quickened this passage to me and said, ‘I am restoring the Levitical office of the treasurer.’ One day I was on a completely different Scriptural path when the Lord said, go to 1 Chronicles 26. In my Thomas Nelson Study Bible, there was a footnoted portion and the caption was ‘Restoring the Levitical Office of the Treasurer.’ I know that God is doing this because He spoke to me about it. If we want to participate, we need to pray in the Spirit so we can embrace the prayers that are birthed in the heart of God. It will be the paths of judgment that fill the treasuries. That is part of praying in the Spirit – we are praying God’s will and God’s heart. According to Scripture, some of us are called to be treasurers. Therefore we must have a vested interest in what is unfolding now by the Holy Spirit. It is time to prepare!
