Proverbs 13:22 tells us that the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous. Wealth is not to be for the devil. There is power in money. God gives us the power to get wealth. Jesus became poor so that we can become rich. Jesus had a treasurer to handle His and the disciples’ money. The disciples were former businessmen and tax collectors. The grace that God gives us is so that we can glorify Him. God gave Jacob the grace to become exceedingly prosperous by a wealth transfer. The glorious church means loaded down with loot. Three things of a glorious church: 1) There will be signs and wonders (and the fear of the Lord will be brought back.) 2) The church will be holy and reveal God’s character. 3) The church will be prospering and growing in health. The restoration of all things shows the kingdom of God. When the Egyptians gave the Israelites gold, silver, and jewelry, they were paying back what the Israelites should have received for their honest labor. God daily loads us with benefits.
