TGIF: The Coming Wealth Transfer

Today's Prayer
God, Do You sense an independent spirit within me--one that hinders me from joining others in the mission You have called me to? While I do enjoy independence, it's nice sometimes 2 depend on someone else, 2 not have the whole weight of the world on my own shoulders. Help me 2 work w/and live in harmony w/my brothers and sisters in Christ. I want 2 help keep unity among believers as we go forward 4 the cause of Christ. If that means You need 2 work on that independent spirit within me, so be it. Help me, please. I love You, God. In Jesus name, Amen.

The Coming Wealth Transfer
TGIF Today God Is First Volume 2, by Os Hillman
But the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous (Prov 13:22).

In the last days there will be a transfer of wealth into the hands of the righteous 4 the purpose of funding a great harvest of souls and 4 believers 2 have greater influence on society in the name of Christ. This will happen in at least 4 ways.

1. Supernatural Transfer - Like the Israelites leaving Egypt, Christians and non-profit organizations will receive major gifts from individuals or foundations 2 carryout their Christian mission. In 2004, the Salvation Army received one of the largest gifts ever 4 Christian ministry via the founder's wife of McDonald's, Joan Kroc, in the amount of 1.5 billion dollars.

2. Power to Make Wealth - God is going 2 give witty inventions 2 believers throughout the world that will generate wealth. This has already begun. "But remember the LORD your God, 4 it is He who gives u the ability 2 produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which He swore 2 your forefathers, as it is today" (Deut 8:18).

3. Social Entrepreneurship - Just as Joseph was entrusted w/the resources of Egypt 2 solve a societal problem resulting from a famine in the land, God is going 2 transfer money 2 believers who are solving societal problems. Governments will fund private enterprises bcoz government is not been able 2 do it.

4. Wealthy Individual "Conversions"? Finally, many non-believers who are wealthy will become Christians in these last days and will begin 2 use their wealth 4 Kingdom purposes.
The transfer of wealth is designed 2 accelerate God's activity on the earth, not 2 simply make believers wealthy. Pray that God uses your work life call 2 accelerate His Kingdom on earth. And pray that God raises up good stewards of wealth.
