THE WEALTH TRANSFER SEASON
“A good person leaves an inheritance for their children’s children, but a sinner’s wealth is stored up for the righteous.”
The above Bible passage is one of the most repeated and known passages within Christian environments. In one section of the passage, the Bible speaks about the inheritance left by a good man and in the
1 other part of the passage, the Bible speaks about ‘wealth transfer’.
Proverb 13:22 states that the wealth of the sinner will be transferred to the righteous.
Though the above passage is very popular, the understanding of its mechanisms remain poorly understood.
It matters that we understand the true value and importance of wealth in these last days because wealth can be used as:
1. a defense mechanism in warfare
2. A tool to accelerate the influence of the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth.
There are two Biblical passages that really caught my attention:
In Ecclesiastes 7:12, the Bible states: ‘For wisdom is a defense as money is a defence, But the excellence of knowledge is that wisdom gives life to those who have it.’
In Ecclesiastes 9:13-16, the Bible states the following: ‘I also saw under the sun this example of wisdom that greatly impressed me: There was once a small city with only a few people in it. And a powerful king came against it, surrounded it and built huge siege works against it. Now there lived in that city a man poor but wise, and he saved the city by his wisdom. But nobody remembered that poor man. So I said, “Wisdom is better than strength.” But the poor man’s wisdom is despised, and his words are no longer heeded.’
In the passage of Ecclesiastes 7:12, the Bible clearly states that money is a form of defence. Even the economists of the world would agree with me when I say that ‘financially poor people can be vulnerable against multiple forms of threats’. If the Bible views 'money as a form of defence, then there should not be a human view contradicting the passage of Ecclesiastes 7:12. When Jesus was born, His parents could run away with Him in Egypt and even extend their stay there because they had enough resources at hand through the gifts of the magi (ref. Matthew 2:1-18). There are many Christians who are seriously cribled by the devil simply because they do not have access to financial resources.
In Ecclesiastes 9:13-16, the Bible recounts a very interesting story where a wise man gets despised by a city after saving the same city. Have you ever noticed that certain billionaires ,with no political powers, have access to presidents and kings. They can easily influence policies and they are heard and considered by thousands, if not millions of people?
Notice as well, that poor people (whether Christians or not) are hardly considered nor heard, even when they picket and protest on the streets. Though there are exceptional cases where the poor are heard through national mass protests as it happened in Sri Lanka, in most cases, the poor are not considered nor heard. If you don't believe me, I will prove it with one fact: " ever since the UN has been created, there have been countless conferences aimed at alleviating poverty in Africa over the years. Till today, the voice of those poor people is still not heard or properly attended.”
Before I dive into the main technicality of my message, allow me to clarify a few things:
'Blessings can come in many forms. They can come in the form of a newborn baby, a job, a promotion at work, a mended relationship, a business deal, a healing (mental or physical), and even in the form of a wealth transfer.
In this text and in relation to Proverb 13:22, a wealth transfer refers to a transfer of resources from the hands of the wicked to the hands of the righteous.
Many Christians have been singing the Proverb 13:22 for decades and yet, not everybody experiences a transfer of wealth. Those Christians may have received various forms of blessings but not the wealth transfer. In order to understand the mechanics of the wealth transfer, it is important that we study a Bible story where the wealth transfer did occur. The story is found in the parable of the talents in Matthew 25:14-30.
The mechanism of wealth transfer from the wicked to the righteous
In the parable of the talents, a noble man goes on a journey away from his rich property. Before traveling, He calls three of his servants and entrusts them with talents (a talent had a monetary worth of 20 years of wage) as follow:
a) To the first, He gives 5 talents.
b) To the second, He gives 2 talents.
c) To the third, He gives 1 talent.
As soon as the Master went away,the first two servants went on to work and multiplied what they had received while the last servant decided to bury his talent. Notice that the Master did not give any instruction on how to use those talents, and yet, the first two servants knew what to do with the talents received. In other words, once God plants something in you, you will also automatically know what to do with it.
Unfortunately, the last servant decides to go and bury the talent he was given, thus using it for the wrong purpose.
When the Master returns, he calls his three servants for a report which will determine the granting of rewards. The first two servants did well in the eyes of the Master but the last one did absolutely nothing and his talent was given or transferred to the one servant who multiplied his five talents into ten talents. Notice that the timing of Master's return symbolizes a season.
‘Wealth transfer’ from the wicked to the righteous occurs during specific seasons. The reason why God performs wealth transfer in specific seasons is to give the wicked time to repent. This is why many rich wicked thrive without any sign of retribution. God lets them live without retribution in order to give them significant time to repent. Notice that the last servant had time to repent and to change but he did not make use of that time.
Wealth transfers (as in Proverb 13:22) occur at the end of a period where God decides to make an assessment on the resources He has given throughout the world.
Notice that in verse 26, the Master labels the third servant as ‘wicked and slothful’. We can learn that the people ,who do nothing about the gifts that God has given them, are seen as wicked and they fall in the premises included in Proverb 13:22.
However, there is another type of wickedness. It’s the type of wickedness where a person will work hard at gaining riches with the goal of using them to promote wickedness in the world. Those people also fall in the premises included in Proverb 13:22.
The lazy servant uses his talent for an evil purpose by burying it into the ground and the world hosts a range of contemporary people who use their riches to promote wickedness. Both the lazy servant and those contemporary people have something in common: “they use their riches for evil purposes”...Therefore, at the right time appointed by God, a transfer of wealth must occur from their hands to the hands of the righteous.
God can bless anyone, regardless of what they do or don’t. However, the ‘wealth transfer’ (as in Proverbs 13:22) is not for everyone.
In order to receive a transfer of resources from a wicked hand, you will first need to have multiplied something that God gave you in the past. There’s got to be a record of multiplication about you.
It is important that we discuss this topic because we are currently in a season where God has decided to implement a wealth transfer. We are in a time where very wicked rich people are using their resources to promote evil agendas and God is about to put a brake on their moves by transferring wealth to the righteous. We are in a time where God will raise a group of righteous people in real tangible wealth in order to spread the light and defeat the currently looming darkness.
And even if you don’t receive a transfer of wealth, you can rejoice and join hands with the ones who will be recipients of the transfers. As those recipients grow in wealth, they will surely need help to manage those resources.
