The Great Wealth Transfer – Part 3

By

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.”
