There has been a misinterpreted, misinformed and in some cases, yes even intentional misrepresentation of Biblical truth perpetrated by certain ministers of the “American prosperity gospel” over the years.
This half-truth flatly states and gives the impression (very conveniently), that in the “future” end times or end of days, there is going to be a mass transfer of wealth to God’s children. However, there is a Biblical Truth which has been perverted so to speak, and it behooves us to find out just what the full Truth really is.
According to this widely taught concept, in the end times, everyone of God’s children is going to receive a mass fortune because they are God’s kids and so deserve to receive all these Divinely negotiated funds. Suddenly, one day, they are going to walk up to their mail boxes and open an envelope with a whole lot of money suddenly inherited or dropped into their 1% interest bearing savings account. And oh yes, if you’ve never tithed before in your life, you are out of luck. You are exempt from the blessings which you certainly should have received by now, should you have been tithing all along.
Then, in a twinkling of an eye, the Body of Christ will entirely be turned into millionaires; all of our troubles and woes will be over; and oh yes, the heathen will be so provoked to jealousy, that they will literally run into the Kingdom of God and get saved. Praise the Lord!
Sound too good to be true? Well, as previously mentioned, it is only a half-truth. Let us examine these half truths and absolute truths from God’s Word in a several parts and see just what is God saying to us from His Word.
There IS a transfer of wealth taking place right now, not in the future. The “transference of wealth” has already happened. As a result of the economic shaking going on in the world, there are certain
persons designated by God to be able to be a recipients of this wealth transference. Were you a recipient of it? Did you get a “windfall” or catch an “overflow” of wealth? Probably not. Well, you just may get it yet. Don’t give up. But let’s get better informed first, shall we?
There is nothing “across board” about this very much Bible based teaching of the “transfer of the wealth.” There is no giant bucket of gold coins going to be dumped on entirety on the Body of Christ. Have we been lied to then? Yes and no, perhaps.
God has a remnant. He always has a remnant. He always will have a remnant. Just what is a remnant? It is what is “left-over” after a larger amount has been taken away or lost.
More spiritually speaking, specifically, a remnant is the Body of believers who is still standing after and through the hardships, the losses, the doubts, the shakings, persecutions, multiplied testings and tribulations which they have walked through in their walk with Christ. And especially signaled out are those who have been shown and “proven” faithful in the handling of mammon (finances of the world system), and of the probably small finances which God did entrust into their hands.
It is those of you who have withstood the disciplines and purgings, the dying to your flesh and have allowed “the old man” to be crucified. Obedience and steadfastness is the key to being a member of this elite army. Holiness is the integral and primordial key in this equation. This is the remnant.
So, if you qualify to all of the above, you have every right to expect a transfer of the wealth of the wicked which has been laid up for you His beloved child – for the redistribution into God’s Kingdom agendas. Yes, I did say “redistribution”. Another article, another time, this concept of Kingdom re-distribution will be covered more fully.
Therefore, yes it can be said to be a transference of wealth even now taking place through all the shakings in our world structures but guess who is doing the shakings? That’s right. Father is doing it to literally shake the wealth of those who are wicked (including His own wicked children) into the hands of His children who are a remnant. Everything that can be shaken will be shaken so that which cannot be shaken will remain.
“And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are
shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken
may remain” Hebrews 12:27 KJV
