End Times and Your Money Part 3: Divine Wealth Transfer – Who Gets What and Why?

End Times and Your Money Part 3: Divine Wealth Transfer – Who Gets What and Why?

In recent years, discussions about the end times and eschatology have become more prevalent, sparking interest in various theological aspects of this prophetic period.

One intriguing topic that has emerged is the concept of Divine Wealth Transfer during the end times. This idea suggests that God will supernaturally transfer wealth from the wicked to the righteous as a sign of His sovereignty and justice.

So, after studying this topic, I started to find some pretty shaky thoughts and wanted to simply put some balance on the table.

Divine Wealth Transfer is not some return on investment or a “get rich quick in end-times” fund that your ‘easy times’ tithes and offerings secure for you.

We can not base our behavior on any one imbalanced cobbled together scriptural theory. Whether it’s super-grace, super,gifts, super-prosperity, or super-spiritual – all these theories when filtered through our flesh-based human thinking distract us from the BALANCE of God’s Character.

Now I am not debunking Divine Wealth Transfer because it has biblical merit – but so do grace, prosperity, spiritual gifts etc. Let’s try and find the balance on this one too.

Biblical Foundation

The idea of Divine Wealth Transfer finds its roots in several passages from the Bible. One of the most prominent references is Proverbs 13:22.

A good person leaves an inheritance for their children’s children, but a sinner’s wealth is stored up for the righteous.

This verse implies that God will eventually redistribute the wealth of the unrighteous to those who walk in His ways (obedient).

The Psalms provide insights into God’s promise of provision for His faithful. Psalm 37:25-26 assures believers:

I have been young, and now am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or his children begging for bread. He is ever lending generously, and his children become a blessing.

This passage highlights God’s faithfulness to provide for His righteous ones, even in times of adversity.

The concept of Divine Wealth Transfer aligns with the biblical principle of sowing and reaping found in Galatians 6:7.

Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.

This principle suggests that those who honor God with their resources and wealth (stewardship of spiritual AND physical gifts) will receive blessings and increase in return.

Implications for Believers

Understanding the concept of Divine Wealth Transfer carries significant implications for believers during the end times. It encourages believers to place their trust in God’s faithfulness and His promises rather than pursuing wealth through unethical or sinful means. We may think our Christian behavior makes us justified to receive from the “wicked”, but Jesus scorned some who thought they were in line for blessing but had completely missed the mark. They had marked their own homework and had a prideful understanding of their efforts.

In Matthew 7:22-23, speaking around “that day” (end times) Jesus brings some divine brevity to the value of our efforts to win earthly wealth and favor.

Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

We focus on our obedience, faithfulness, righteousness through Christ, and stewardship of spiritual and physical gifts on Jesus and not the return on investment.

Rather than striving for personal gain, believers are called to be good stewards of the resources God has entrusted to them and seek to use their wealth (physical) and health (spiritual) to bless others and advance God’s Kingdom.

Additionally, the belief in Divine Wealth Transfer fosters a sense of hope and assurance for believers who may face economic challenges in the end times. It reminds them that God remains in control and will provide for His people even amidst global upheaval and economic turmoil.

However, it is crucial to approach this topic with discernment and humility, as interpretations of prophetic passages can vary among different theological traditions.

While the Bible provides glimpses of Divine Wealth Transfer, it is not meant to be the primary focus of a believer’s faith. Instead, followers of Christ are called to seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, trusting that all these things will be added unto them (Matthew 6:33).

At The End of Times

Divine Wealth Transfer during the end times is a captivating concept that has captured the attention of many believers seeking to understand God’s plan for the future. The biblical foundation for this idea, rooted in verses that speak of God’s justice, provision, and the principle of sowing and reaping, offers encouragement and hope for believers.

As we navigate uncertain times and prepare for the eventual return of Christ, let us remember to fix our eyes on Jesus, the author, and perfecter of our faith, and remain faithful stewards of the resources and blessings God has bestowed upon us.

We can use our God-given wisdom to leverage this world’s economy to bless others but let us always prioritize loving God and loving our neighbors, trusting in His sovereign plan for our lives and the world.

    Thank you, thank you. A relevant word for the “Church” today. In my 53 years as a believer, I’ve seen so many Christians pursue God’s blessings (money and material things) rather than pursuing Jesus and the Kingdom. I too was one at the beginning of my Christian walk but soon realized my error. As I have, “… seek first the Kingdom…” God has made sure that I always have what I need. It has not always been an easy journey, but God is faithful and today at 80 years of age I’m a blessed man. Glory to God in the highest!!
