When will The Great Wealth Transfer occur?
Ours is a unique assignment, probably unmatched in an Internet News Forum. As we have declared in the foundations of our assignment, we DO NOT “PREDICT” dates and time for prophetic fulfillment: the prolific Arise and Shine of Zion, the Body of Christ in the last days; and relative to this topic, The Great Wealth Transfer. No! No prediction is necessary, BECAUSE we can tell you with absolute certainty, the exact time to expect “The Great Wealth Transfer.”
If you’ve been following this week’s featured series, “The Great Wealth Transfer,” we chronicled some progressive revelation that is now unfolding in remnant news within the Body of Christ. As is our duty, we seek the word of God and report the news, the events, the growing light of the word; and the testimonies of arise and shine in the Body of Christ around the globe. We ended “Part 5, The Great Wealth Transfer,” with the all consuming question, “When will this occur?” And, we can tell you! It will happen precisely at . . . “THE APPOINTED TIME!”
In other words, we don’t know! Yet, we do know! We know by the word of God, He fulfills His promises at the appointed time! Nevertheless, in scripture, God’s appointed time is often measured by successive events: the progression of revelation or the progression of events. In keeping with the Lord’s pattern nature, we are absolutely certain, this event will also occur at the appointed time. Are you disappointed? Are you discouraged that we have not satisfied a frustration with dates: months, weeks, days, etc.?
Perhaps, we could sell books and tapes, attract media attention; and find a good or great opportunity to “make a lot of money” on the foolishness of predicting, a “Great Wealth Transfer.” No! That’s NOT what we do. We investigate the news, the corresponding Biblical events occurring in the earth; we research Old and New Biblical Commentary and visit with Biblical Scholars and correspondence. Then, we watch! And, if you watch carefully, you will see the growing manifestation of these events.
The Lord’s Example [Patterns]
So it was in ancient Egypt. Even Moses did not know precisely when the Children of Israel would leave Egypt. But, he believed God – Exodus 3, “19And I am sure that the king of Egypt will not let you go, no, not by a mighty hand. 20And I will stretch out my hand, and smite Egypt with all my wonders which I will do in the midst thereof: and after that he will let you go. 21And I will give this people favour in the sight of the Egyptians: and it shall come to pass, that, when ye go, ye shall not go empty. 22But every woman shall borrow of her neighbour, and of her that sojourneth in her house, jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment: and ye shall put them upon your sons, and upon your daughters; and ye shall spoil the Egyptians.” Notice how events occurred: “wonders which I will do.”
You will notice that even God does not give exact dates [although we know that He knows], but rather He measures the time in sequence of manifestations, developments, orchestrated events. For this event, the word of God through Abraham, Job, Isaiah, Zechariah, Haggai, Paul, James . . . and now remnant progressive revelations in the church, has given us the promise: a second wealth transfer [greater] event, another deliverance, a phenomenon of favor coming to His house. As events of world systems collapse. And as the events of darkness and gross darkness increase; and everything that can be shaken is shaken, then the great wealth transfer event for His house will occur. We invite you to track the events with us.
Follow The Events
Again, what are the significant events? Some of these events cannot yet be tangibly seen. But they will. The key is faith in God’s word; even the word that is not yet seen.
(Remember, Pastor Dr. Don G. Pickney reminded us what the Book of Hebrews says about faith: “Faith perceives as a reality, what is not yet revealed to the senses.” Or, you could say, “Faith perceives as a reality, what is not yet manifested.” So, faith prepares in anticipation for the manifestation. Faith always prepares “something” in anticipation for the manifestation.) Let’s continue with the “word” of the events.
Zechariah 1: “14So the angel that communed with me said unto me, Cry thou, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion [the dwelling place of God, the new created man: the church] with a great jealousy. 15And I am very sore displeased with the heathen that are at ease: for I was but a little displeased, and they helped forward the affliction.”
Zechariah 2: “8For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye. 9For, behold, I will shake mine hand upon them, and they shall be a spoil to their servants: and ye shall know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me. 10Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the LORD. 11And many nations shall be joined to the LORD in that day, and shall be my people: and I will dwell in the midst of thee, and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto thee.”
Haggai 2: “5According to the word that I covenanted with you when ye came out of Egypt, so my spirit remaineth among you: fear ye not. 6For thus saith the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; 7And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts. 8The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts. 9The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.”
So, we can’t see the angel of the Lord, having gone out to shake his hand upon the nations. But, we can see the symptoms . . . let’s continue.
Isaiah 60: “1Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. 2For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. 3And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising. 5Then thou shalt see, and flow together, and thine heart shall fear, and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be converted unto thee, the forces of the Gentiles shall come unto thee. 11Therefore thy gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring unto thee the forces of the Gentiles, and that their kings may be brought.”
This is the exciting part of our journalism assignment – We can actually see the symptoms. The world does not connect the dots. But, growing numbers in the church are. We will report, you can watch with us.
We see the shaking of ALL nations. We see the impending collapse the systems of the world: governments, economics, banking, social, religious shaking on a global scale. And we see the symptoms of “Arise and Shine” in the Body of Christ! These are the corresponding dynamics, the contradicting paradigms, and the growing manifestations. For the Christian, the Believer, it should be the most exciting time to be alive.
Perhaps we see it more clearly than you. Our assignment is fulfilling, hopeful and rewarding. We have the privilege, daily, focusing upon the task of Mark 13:30-37, “30Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done. 31Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. 32But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. 33Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. 34For the Son of Man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. 35Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: 36Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. 37And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.”
We look for and watch for the Body of Christ to arise and shine in the earth. We hear from and we speak with those who, despite the shaking times, are the manifestation of abundance and the promises [health, wealth, anointing, ministry, works, joy, peace, patience, long suffering, wisdom, etc.]. We celebrate with the Lord of hosts; and the Body of Christ on earth.
The pattern of God confirms His intent: to favor Zion, the dwelling place of God; to bless the seed of Abraham, the church [if ye be in Christ, ye are Abraham’s seed]; to pour out His spirit and His blessing, to bring the glory of the world to His house, so that His house can take the glory of the Lord back to the world – the Great End-Time Harvest!

The Apostle Paul and the Apostle James carry on the message of “one more time.”
As Biblical Scholars agree and we’ve acknowledged, revelation is progressive. Solomon puts it well in Proverbs 4:18, “18But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.” Another translation says, “The path of the righteous is like the light of dawn that grows, progressively and generationally, until the full day . . . a noon day sun.”
So, we see the Heavenly Father unfolding revelation to His family progressively and generationally to the fulfillment of His work; and to establish His covenant in the earth.
Over the past few days we’ve given you an opportunity to review a targeted progressive revelation of a great wealth transfer, coming from the word of God to remnant cells in the church. Although it yet resides outside of traditional teachings, and not yet widely accepted, the revelation is growing. In some cases, it is growing rapidly. Our job is to report it.
What is happening in the world today?
Nevertheless, as the world is dramatically changing, the church is also looking for answers. And, as His servants are praying and seeking wisdom, the Father of Lights is answering as He promised. But, this progressive revelation is controversial. We recognize as much throughout history: the prophets were controversial, the law was controversial, the Word was/is controversial; Christ was controversial. The church itself is controversial.
Given then, if the revelation is from God, who can stop it? If it is true, who can disannul? Isaiah 14:27, “26This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations. 27For the LORD of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?”
Today, the church and the world both, recognize change in the dynamics of this age: political, economic, social and religious. At The Day and Night Post, our staff is committed to seek the news, the reports and the revelations related. As often is stated by faith, “hide and watch.” Therefore, we do more than report the changes and the news. We watch with you. It’s interesting to take a chronological map of the prophecies of the end of the age; and watch the current events and news unfold with pinpoint accuracy.
If the glory of all nations is soon coming to the Body of Christ, it would only make sense the Lord of hosts would have to shake it loose from all the nations. Today, we see the collapse of nations, the collapse of the lofty, the collapse of systems . . . and the impending collapse of world’s currencies. Economies have waned before. Yet to date, has there ever been a greater wealth transfer than that which already occurred when Israel came out of Egypt?
In a sober attempt to prove the word, the prophecy, we examine the Old Testament to find if such great [greater] event of wealth transfer has ever occurred. It was foretold. So, did it already occur? Did we miss it?
We find in all of Old Testament recorded history, since the Exodus, since Zechariah’s visit with the angel of the Lord, since Haggai’s word, “Thus saith the Lord,” it has not. Therefore, it must be before us! It must be in the Church Age.
But mankind has a doubting mind and suspicious nature when it comes to the things of God; “for all have sinned and come short of the glory,” including faith. So let’s see if there’s yet a continuing pattern for references in the church age.
The Scripture tells us, Amos, 3:7, 7Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets [plural, more than one].” I know, I know, as of late, that verse seems to have worn its welcome. It seems everyone who wants to gather an audience uses that verse for validity? But, I’m not talking about “everyone.” I’m talking about Abraham, Moses, Job, Isaiah, Zechariah, Haggai . . . and Jesus. All have declared the growing and progressive revelation, the growing light and the manifestation of the great prosperity phenomenon.
All will come to pass
Jesus reminds us in Matthew 5:18, “18For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.” In other words, the most minüte parts of the word will come to pass. We can count on it, it will be fulfilled, God will accomplish that which He has declared. He does not count on your understanding or my understanding. If the Lord has declared it, it will occur; Isaiah 55: “8For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. 9For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. 10For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: 11So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”
Now we know by recorded history, such a greater event has never occurred in the Old Testament. And, to date, never has such great event occurred in the New Testament. How do we know then, that such will occur before the end of the Church Age? Let’s connect to a couple of other servants the prophets.”
Apostle Paul . . .
Hebrews 12: “25See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven: 26Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. 27And 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.”
“Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven,” sounds dramatically like Haggai 2:6-9, “6For thus saith the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; 7And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts. 8The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts. 9The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.”
Sounds like things will [not yet occurred] be shaken; and gold, silver [the wealth of nations will come to the Lords house]. Now let’s digress back to where we started to see the circle of confirmation: connecting the dots . . .
Apostle James . . .
Chapter 5, “1Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. 2Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten. 3Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. 4Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth. 5Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. 6Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you. 7Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.”
Tie the knot
To summarize a wealth transfer phenomenon, God has spoken it, the servants and prophets have revealed it, connective scripture confirms it; and it has never happened! So, when will it occur?
Join us tomorrow, Part 6, “The Great Wealth Transfer”
The LORD of hosts promises to plunder for His family one more time. It is for the purpose of covenant, favor and blessing.
There is great detail of reference and guideline approved for the study and interpretation of the Scriptures. Universities, Bible Schools, Seminaries and Scholars, historical commentary and traditions offer life and learned skills for the accomplishment. And it could take years to convey the applications here. That is not our intent. Therefore, for the layman reader’s sake, we’re going to make some assumptions that you’ll appreciate. The Day and Night Post news or series documentaries are taken from those benefits and imparted to offer a synopsis of the topics at hand. Let’s get started on this next exciting revelation – the end time Great Wealth Transfer.
The Great Wealth Transfer Phenomenon
For all of you, who like a good drama, hang on to your show ticket! Soon to be playing on a world theatre near you, will be the greatest drama the world has ever seen. It will affect every nation, every tribe and every tongue. It will eclipse the event of the Exodus out of Egypt.
Earlier in the series, we highlighted a review of the Exodus, the deliverance of the family of God from ancient Egypt with and unbelievable, unimaginable supernatural transfer of wealth. And we saw in Deuteronomy, God’s own description of the Exodus event. God Himself boasted of the event: from one side of heaven to the other, and all the way back to Adam, when God created man upon the earth, there had never been such great thing occur on the earth.
Nevertheless, as phenomenal as that greatest world event was, a greater supernatural event of like kind is about to take place. It will dwarf the first event. It will be such a dramatic event; the mention of it goes beyond comprehension, reason, and understanding. And only short of fulfillment, or manifestation, to validate it, it would be impossible to believe.
The world cannot accept it, anymore than Pharaoh could accept the vulnerability of his kingdom before Almighty God! And as Pharaoh opposed The Almighty, so the world today will oppose the hand of God. Neither does the church discuss it, for the dynamics of it cannot be reasonably understood. It is either overlooked or ignored by the traditional teaching of the church. Or, it is intentionally denied and obscured in a world that is searching for hope . . . even the church. But God has declared it. We’re going to see it following in Zechariah, Haggai, Hebrews and James.
The Tradition of Revelations
Countless articles, books and commentaries have been written about the Book of Revelations. And the traditional church and its membership has struggled with its interpretation, its timing, and its eventual manifestation. Biblical Scholars and the church have made The Book of Revelation the standard bearer for end-times future events. Accordingly, the Book of Revelations has been the source of movie scripts, and novels, and best selling authors. And it has held their attention to the point of influence for generations.
But they have failed in the same deliberation of past pronouncements for unfolding the mysteries of God’s pattern. Therefore, both the church leadership and the full Body of Christ have been remiss in realizing what God is beginning to unfold in remnant revelations – here a little, there a little, until the manifestation is unfolded as it does to the fullness of time.
As strategic as the Book of Revelations is, and the significance of Jehovah’s instruction for it, it is vital to utilize connective scripture for the stewardship of God’s word.
The Similitude of God’s Word
Biblical Scholars will attest that a similitude is the quality of being similar to something; a comparison between two things, times or events. So we can go back into God’s word for connective prophetic anomaly: that is something said that deviates from what was standard, normal or expected at the time that it was spoken. God reveals its significance, in due time, speaking in a comparison for revelation.
Such is the case of God’s word to Zechariah and Haggai, the twin prophets, concerning the end times in reference to the greatest event that God spoke about in Deuteronomy, Chapter 4. In the Books of Zechariah and Haggai, we see both a similarity between the culture of ancient Egypt and today; and also a remaining spirit of “the Deliverance” that connects to future events. So now, let’s begin to connect the scripture.
Remember, Egypt was fat with the pleasure and the plunder of the family of God. And also remembering, God speaks to Zechariah and Haggai with a word for the end of the age. Let’s look first at Zechariah.
Zechariah . . .
What Revelations is to the New Testament, Zechariah is to the Old Testament. Zechariah’s book is filled with great portent. Zechariah visits with an angel of the Lord concerning the end of days. And the angel speaks saying “God sees the world is at ease.” One translation says, “the heathen” that are at ease; meaning “the world” is fat, luxuries; a prophetic word [a similitude] likened unto Egypt under the Pharaohs.
Remember God’s covenant with Abraham. His seed would serve another nation; and after 400 years He [God] would visit them and bring them out [of bondage] with great substance – the glory of Egypt. Likewise in similitude, “the world [the heathen]” today, in all of their glory, is at ease. Referencing the end of days, Zechariah, Chapter 1:15, “5And I am very sore displeased with the heathen that are at ease: for I was but a little displeased, and they helped forward the affliction.”
That is a judgment that I wouldn’t want to be associated with. It’s one thing to have the Lord, strong, mighty in battle “displeased,” but it’s quite another to have the Lord, strong, mighty in battle “very sore displeased.” Remember God will give men for His children and nations for His family. The angel continues, Zechariah 2, “8For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye. 9For, behold, I will shake mine hand upon them, and they shall be a spoil to their servants: and ye shall know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me.” Another translation says, “hath sent me for you.”
So, what is God saying concerning the end of days? The heathen [the Gentiles] of the world are at ease. They have [once again] plundered and spoiled the apple of His eye [His family]. The Lord is very sore displeased. And He has sent His angel out to shake his hand upon them. They shall become a spoil to you, their servants [God’s family]. And you [God’s family] shall know that the Lord has sent me for you.
Haggai . . .
Biblical Scholars agree that Haggai and Zechariah were by God joined together, that they might confirm each other’s doctrine. Therefore it should be relatively easy for Haggai to comment also about the end of days . . . and a wealth transfer to the family of God, if Zechariah heard the angel of the Lord correctly, recorded it truthfully and we interpreted it accurately.
And he does; but, again with a similitude, he draws a closer comparison of the Lord shaking the one former nation, Egypt, to a larger event, a more glorious event, a supernatural and phenomenal event at the end of days. In fact, Haggai clarifies the Lord declares His anointing for this coming event is really a continuation of the same anointing that brought Israel out of Egypt.
Haggai 2:5-9, “5According to the word that I covenanted with you when ye came out of Egypt, so my spirit remaineth among you: fear ye not. 6For thus saith the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; 7And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts. 8The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts. 9The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.”
Let’s break this down. The same word that brought His family out of Egypt remains . . . the spirit remains. One could say “the anointing” remains. Why? Well, it is a little while [a thousand years is as one day; and one day is as a thousand years] and the Lord will shake not just one nation. But rather, He will shake the heavens, the earth, the sea and the dry land. In fact He will shake ALL nations! And the desire [wealth: the Greek translation stimulates, wealth, riches, goods, substance, men, means and other resources] of ALL nations shall come. And the Lord will fill this house [God’s family] with glory. Then just in case there is any doubt about the material wealth, He says, “The silver is mine and the gold is mine.” But wait, He adds, “The glory of this latter house [the church] shall be greater than the former house [Israel].
Now that’s good news for the church! Not very good news for the world; but very good news for the church! We’ve been connecting dots [scripture] in this brief series to highlight a prophecy of wealth transfer for the end of days so glorious, so marvelous, so phenomenal, it has been overlooked, misunderstood or even denied by the church.
If the first event was the greatest event to occur in the earth all the way back to Adam, how could this event [the glory of this house be greater than the former] be greater? We agree, it is beyond reason and beyond comprehension. In fact, we also admit, it is unbelievable. Our mind cannot conceive or comprehend the magnitude or the glory of such an event. But, we believe it because God said it.
Nevertheless, Part 5; need more convincing? Just in case we need more convincing, let’s look at what the Apostle Paul and the Apostle James says about it. Join us tomorrow for Part 5.
The Pharaohs have plundered the world again.
In Part 1 and Part 2, for the purpose of the topic at hand, we established some vital precedents often clouded in the church. But, without question the precedents are unseen by the world. And, even if these precedents are acknowledged, the significance is seldom emphasized in pattern. So, let’s review:
- God owns the wealth of the world
- He declares it to be necessary to establish His covenant in the earth.
- God’s family is also His possession
- He will sacrifice men for His children and nations for His family
- Egypt plundered God’s family [His first house], so . . .
- God miraculously plundered ancient Egypt.
- God declared, “… it was the greatest event to ever occur, since He created Adam on the earth.”
400 Years of Bondage
Egypt plundered the family of God, prospering immensely from the men [labor], means, resources and the slavery of Israel. Great cities, culture and vast wealth was stored up and exhibited by Egypt during the 400 years of bondage of Israel. The lifestyle of average Egyptian was opulent with the spoils of garments, gold, privilege and favor. And the wealth and glory of Egypt’s elite was greater. All of the Egyptian households held massive individual wealth.
The bondage of Israel positioned Egypt to be a [one nation] world order. Her power was unmatched. And her influence was the fear of nations. There was no power greater on earth. The Pharaohs and ruling class had an impenetrable lock on the world’s wealth, power and influence. It was a corrupt Babylonian system mocking Jehovah; and serving the lords of the underworld. But, we could say Jehovah used that Egyptian [one nation] world order to store up wealth for the last [glorious] days of Egypt.
So, in due season, Jehovah delivered Israel out of heavy bondage. He mysteriously gave her all of the individual wealth of Egypt. And, the Patriarchs went forth to continue to establish His covenant on the earth: David, Solomon, Job, Jehoshaphat, Hezekiah, Joseph of Arimathaea and many more. To this day, “the Deliverance” from Egypt gives the Jewish people a dramatic, historical and undeniable understanding: God intends for His family to be blessed, to do His work in the earth – believe it, expect it, possess it. The Jewish mind believes they are blessed richly by Jehovah in possessions: wealth, business, land, cattle, store, house, family, etc. etc.
What about the Church?
In the fullness of time, Jesus Christ was the fulfillment of the law. The Word established a New Covenant, a New Testament – a New Creation man: the Christian Believer, born of the seed of the Word of God.
Has the Church not been set apart under the New Testament [New Covenant] to continue to establish God’s covenant in the earth? And has the Church continued to enjoy God’s wealth in the earth to continue to prosper for the covenant? One would have to argue they have not.
Why has the Church traditionally suffered lack, want and meager means just to keep the pastor paid, the evangelist paid and the missionary paid to spread the Gospel, while the Gentiles have enjoyed the splendor and the riches of the world? Has Jehovah forgotten His word? Has He changed His mind? Is the covenant work completed or has the church failed in its work? Jehovah works in patterns and His patterns He will keep!
Wealth stored up for the last days
For the purpose of connecting the dots in a pattern of God’s design, we’re going to jump ahead into some prophetic word. We’re going to let you see the end before the promise that God has not forgotten His word.
God still desires His wealth is to be used to continue to establish His covenant in the earth. Nevertheless, it doesn’t seem too hard to acknowledge, it has fallen into the wrong hands again. Today we live in a culture of, as we call it . . . the Pharaohs of The Day! Not unlike ancient Egypt, the world today represents the elite of favor. And, once again, the plunder is reaped from the masses in bondage, not to mention the family of God.
The governments of the world, whether “so called” free and democratic systems or appointed and installed heads of state, in concert with multinational corporations, media, entertainment and international banking cartels, hold an impenetrable lock on the world’s wealth, power and influence. Sound familiar?
The current daily diatribe of news focuses on the wealth of Wall Street, the influence of Wall Street on the world stage; or the distractions of Wall Street and the US and world governments to feed the already bloated systems. Corrupt systems of banking and government reward the wicked at the expense, the bondage, the slavery of the masses. That slavery applies not only to citizens of the world, but to Americans as well. Beyond the control or vote of constituents, the heads of state govern as they please, abuse their privileges as they please, disregard the systems of self-government and moral disciplines.
Interestingly, the current systems of world banking, power and influence began approximately 400 years ago – almost like another 400 years of bondage?
Speaking of the last days, the Apostle James prophesied the word of the Lord of hosts; the Lord, strong, mighty in battle: “1Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. 2Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten. 3Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. 4Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth. 5Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. 6Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you. 7Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. 8Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.”
So, as if you weren’t already aware today, the rich men of the earth (the Pharaohs of The Day) have culminated to heap treasure together [again] for the last days. Similar to ancient Egypt that established a [one nation] world order, the Pharaohs of today have culminated to establish a New World Order.
And, in order to accomplish their objective, they have enjoyed great wealth transfers into their granaries, their coffers, their households. The fear of it is rapidly increasing. Much is spoken of it in today’s news, the investment newsletters and wealth management gurus of the day.
But, the Lord of hosts; the Lord, strong, mighty in battle, has other plans! His word tells us He’s going to deliver His family out of slavery one more time. What slavery you ask? Why, the very same plunder of His family that occurred under the heavy hand of Pharaoh in Egypt: economic, social, government and religious.
The Church is unaware
It’s often been recited from pulpit to pulpit, “It took Moses forty days to get the tribes out of Egypt, but it took wandering forty years in the wilderness to get Egypt out of Israel!” Israel became so indoctrinated with the culture of the world in Egypt, that they could not follow God’s word. The same holds true today. The church is so indoctrinated in the culture of the world, they are unaware of God’s promises. And, more often than not, when declared, they are denied.
One of the greatest distinctions in Jehovah’s pattern of promises, relating to this topic, is the Israelites were aware of His promise to deliver them out of slavery. They prayed about, spoke about; sought for “The Deliverer.” (Albeit, they wanted to stone him [Moses] when he came; and, many of them did not want to go. They would rather stay in Egypt under the predictable oppression of Pharaoh, than the unpredictable word of God . . . except, the word of God is not unpredictable. That’s a matter for a different post)
Remember, revelation is progressive. The Church, obviously, has greater revelation today than did Adam. But, so do they have greater revelation today than did Moses, and David, and Solomon, on so on, and so forth. Yet today, the church for the most part, is not aware of the same promise of deliverance. In fact, most of the church is not even aware they are in bondage, leave alone believe it, or claim the promises of God’s word relating to it. And once again, mentioning a great wealth transfer to the Body of Christ, most of the church would even deny it, consider it heresy to speak of such foolishness. Perhaps like the Israelites in Egypt, life has become customary and predictable, and promises to the contrary is vanity?
Sadly, most won’t believe it until the fiat currency, that has robbed them collapses, or the grocery store shelves are empty of contrived food shortages, or the social programs that have been carefully crafted by the Pharaohs of The Day are bankrupt, the pension plans are robbed, the Medicare system is insolvent, or the Social Security checks fail to arrive and second house of God [the Church] is forced to go out [regardless of age] and “make more bricks with less straw.”
Nevertheless, Jehovah is aware of it. The Lord of hosts is very aware of the bondage. And He’s very well aware of His promises. Did you miss that in verse 4 or James, Chapter 5: “. . . and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.”

Life in Goshen [ancient Egypt] for the Hebrews was customary, meaning, “commonly encountered; characterizing a certain community, custom or practice,” over the period of approximately 400 years. Or, we could say life was predictable, meaning, “behaving in a way to be expected.” That customary predictable life: social, economic, religious and political, was under the dictates of the elite Pharaohs. The same classifications, without much distinction, could be identified on a global scale under the Pharaohs [the elite of the world] of today: social, economic, religious and political. Democracy notwithstanding.
We’ve all viewed Hollywood’s depiction of bondage and oppression under Pharaoh, Ramses II on the silver screen. But, the Book of Genesis examples the demeanor the Children of Israel in Genesis 46:33-34: “When Pharaoh calls you and says, ‘What is your occupation?’ you shall say, ‘Your servants have been keepers of livestock [or mines, or brickyards] from our youth even until now, both we and our fathers,’ that you may live in the land of Goshen; for every shepherd is loathsome [causing hatred or disgust; repulsive] to the Egyptians.” Egypt was an oppressive [one nation] world system.
Now, for the purpose of establishing patterns of God’s purpose, we’re not going to go into great detail of comparison between the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt and the Pharaohs [elite] of today. It should be easily recognized. We’re going to examine more closely God’s “love remedy” for His family. In dramatic fashion, God declares His family, His possession: “O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine . . . 3For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee. 4Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life,” – Isaiah 43. So, Jehovah will sacrifice men’s lives for His children; and nations for His family!
It was a word from the Lord to Abraham approximately 800 years earlier that foretold the oppression and the life of heavy bondage. Biblical timeline suggests, and tradition holds, that God made His covenant with Abraham approximately 2004 B.C. Remember Genesis 12, the LORD had called Abraham out of UR of the Chaldees to a land that He would show him. And Abraham obeyed God and went out from his country; his relatives and his father’s house to the land of Canaan. And then, the Lord made a covenant with Abraham in Genesis 15.
Covenant Instructions: “… Take me an heifer of three years old, and a she goat of three years old, and a ram of three years old, and a turtledove, and a young pigeon. 10And he took unto him all these, and divided them in the midst, and laid each piece one against another: but the birds divided he not . . . 12And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and, lo, an horror of great darkness fell upon him.”
The Covenant: “13And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; 14And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.”
The entire covenant deals explicitly with Abraham’s seed serving Egypt with a single purpose: to come out with “great substance.” The worldwide church struggles with an emphasis of “great substance.” They label it as “prosperity preaching,” or “doctrinal heresy.” But why is abundance so significant to the Lord? Well, first of all remember, He owns it; it belongs to Him! But remember the Lord’s purpose in Deuteronomy 8:18, “18But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.” God intends to establish His covenant upon the earth with His wealth. His word establishes it. The enemy of Jehovah is aware of this. Accordingly, he and his angels have worked overtime through history to steal God’s wealth.
So, there is the struggle of two dynamics “in the earth” to establish God’s covenant through the ages. First, there is an enemy of God’s covenant. Second, there is the immaturity leading to maturity of God’s family to establish it to the four corners of the globe. And God says His wealth is significant to establish His covenant in the earth. It was significant in the Old Testament [Old Covenant], leading to the fullness of time for Christ to appear to continue with a New Testament [New Covenant]. Notice that we said, “continue.” For some reason, beyond our reason, in God’s plan for establishing His covenant in the earth it takes God’s wealth in the earth. No wonder “the world,” the family of the enemy, does covet it so.
Then, two dynamics take place “in God’s family” to establish His covenant. First, a progressive work of the Prophets, the Saints, the first family [Israel] in the Old Testament. And, the progressive work of the Apostles, the New Creation man, the second family [the Church] in the New Testament continuing to the end of the age. But Second, culminating in a great end time “out pouring” of the Spirit for a “Great End Time Harvest,” accepting His covenant. The work declared takes significant resources; the use of substantial material wealth of the world, the earth, the globe. Israel took the wealth of Egypt and the rest is history. But the church has never yet enjoyed the favour in comparison to that of Israel leaving Egypt to adequately continue.
Now watch what God does in Egypt: “20And I will stretch out my hand, and smite Egypt with all my wonders which I will do in the midst thereof: and after that he will let you go. 21And I will give this people favour in the sight of the Egyptians: and it shall come to pass, that, when ye go, ye shall not go empty. 22But every woman shall borrow of her neighbour, and of her that sojourneth in her house, jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment: and ye shall put them upon your sons, and upon your daughters; and ye shall spoil the Egyptians,” – Exodus 3.
The wealth transfer from Egypt to the Children of Israel was miraculous, mind blowing, without comprehension, phenomenal. The entire individual wealth of Egypt was transferred to the House of the Lord without any orchestration, edict, decree or executive order. In fact, it was completely unknown to the palaces and the government of Pharaoh. Today, we would say it was a “stealth transfer.” It was a supernatural phenomenon. The night before the Children of Israel left Egypt, they simply went to their Egyptian slave master’s homes. And, the the Hebrew women asked the women of the Egyptian homes if they could “borrow” their wealth [oh and by the way, they would be leaving in the next day and wouldn’t be returning]. The world system under Pharaoh was completely caught “off guard” so to speak.
The favour of God left Egypt plundered, to which they have never recovered to this day. Also to this day, the Jewish mind not only remembers but knows: God’s great material abundance to His family is . . . could we say “customary – predictable!” And the Jewish mind to this day “behaves in a way “that is” to be expected.” They have received the revelation from God: from bondage to abundance, from lack to prosperity, from forgetfulness to favour.
And God was pleased to plunder Egypt and transfer of “His wealth and abundance and favour” to His family. He boasts about it in Deuteronomy, Chapter 4. Never since God created Adam upon the earth has God ever done such great thing: “26I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day . . . 32For ask now of the days that are past, which were before thee, since the day that God created man upon the earth, and ask from the one side of heaven unto the other, whether there hath been any such thing as this great thing is, or hath been heard like it? 33Did ever people hear the voice of God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as thou hast heard, and live? 34Or hath God assayed to go and take him a nation from the midst of another nation, by temptations, by signs, and by wonders, and by war, and by a mighty hand, and by a stretched out arm, and by great terrors, according to all that the LORD your God did for you in Egypt before your eyes? 35Unto thee it was shewed, that thou mightest know that the LORD he is God; there is none else beside him. 36Out of heaven he made thee to hear his voice, that he might instruct thee: and upon earth he shewed thee his great fire; and thou heardest his words out of the midst of the fire. 37And because he loved thy fathers, therefore he chose their seed after them, and brought thee out in his sight with his mighty power out of Egypt; 38To drive out nations from before thee greater and mightier than thou art, to bring thee in, to give thee their land for an inheritance, as it is this day. 39Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the LORD he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else.”
So, God has once before orchestrated a phenomenal wealth transfer which He identifies as the greatest event that has ever occurred, “since the day that God created man upon the earth, and ask from the one side of heaven unto the other, whether there hath been any such thing as this great thing is, or hath been heard like it?
