The word devourer means swallow or eat up hungrily. It also means voraciously or ravenously. It also means to consume destructively, recklessly or wantonly. It could also mean to absorb or engross wholly.
Devourer in other versions of the Bible apart from KJV is being called insects, plagues or diseases. It is also called locusts or bugs. While in the Message Version of the Bible of the book of Malachi 3:11, it is called the marauders.

Looking at all the meanings above from different versions, we can conclude that this devourer must not be spared in one’s life, work or finances.

Most interestingly, devourer is mostly attached to defaulters of tithes payment in which the penalty is not only devourer but many other punishments which will destroy their livelihood and finances. And also, all their blessings will be withheld because they fail to pay the 10% of their income or salaries to God. Therefore, they were called robbers and cursed by God Himself. See Malachi 3:6-18.

This devourer can operate in one’s life physically, financially, spiritually, and materially. One can invite devourer into one’s life by action e.g. drinking of alcohol, engaging in promiscuous acts, gambling, excessive spending, tithe evasion or avoidance, disallowing God to be head over all personal endeavors. Therefore, your own devourer must die!

Prayer Points:-
1. I command every satanic investment in my life, be shaken out by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. O Lord my God, restore unto me the years that canker-worm, caterpillar, palmer-worm and locust has eaten unto me, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. Thou power of sweating without result in my life, what are you waiting for, catch fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Have A Lovely Saturday!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
