There are some who teach that there is going to be an “end time transfer of wealth,” and that the body of Christ (the collective body of believers who trust in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior) is going to become “wealthy” through this transfer.
Those who teach this do so based on the “prophetic words” of certain ministers whose prophecy is treated as “authoritative,” rather than being tested according to scripture.
We must be cautious when ministers have prophetic words for the collective body of Christ, which has become the norm in some arenas of Christian ministry. In such cases, prophecy is elevated to the “authoritative” status of Biblical doctrine. This is serious error. Rather than teaching the truth according to scripture, these prophetic words are preached and taught, and those who teach these prophetic words do so with scriptures which have been taken out of context to support their prophecies.
The Word of God instructs us to judge all such prophecy, and the best way to judge the prophetic words of men is by the whole counsel of God given in the scriptures, and there is nothing in scripture which teaches that there will be an “end time transfer of wealth.”
The text which has been mishandled by those who teach a coming “end time wealth transfer,“ is can be found in the book of Proverbs: A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just. ~ Proverbs 13:22
There is nothing in Proverbs 13:22, or the balance of scripture, which speaks of an end time wealth transfer from one collective body (sinners in the world) to another collective body (the church).
Proverbs 13:22 is contrasting between the the inheritance which a good man leaves behind (whether it be earthly possessions or a heritage of righteousness, etc.,) and the wicked, whose wealth will eventually make its way into the hands of the righteous because “the memory of the just is blessed: but the name of the wicked shall rot.” ~ Proverbs 10:7
Regarding the wicked, the Psalmist says, “Let his posterity be cut off; and in the generation following let their name be blotted out.” ~ Psalm 109:13
Concerning the righteous, he says, “the generation of the upright shall be blessed.” ~ Psalm 112:2
The Bible speaks often of the generation of the upright being blessed, while the generation of evil doers perish. By the providence of God, that which wicked people lay up for themselves, in their greed, will eventually make it into the hands of those who will use it for godly purposes. This is a spiritual truth, and not a prophetic word that Christians are going to have a unearned wealth lavished on them in the last days.
