In recent history the nations of the world have prospered as never before in history. This is especially true of the western industrialized nations, but also of many other nations, though vast numbers of the world’s people remain impoverished in many respects.
God wants us to prosper, in the right balance and as we walk in truth (III John 1:1-4).
But wealth often has its own problems, given human nature and how humans tend to react when in the midst of abundance. God warned the people of Israel of the consequences of turning to idols and lawlessness in the latter days, after they had become prosperous, prideful and arrogant, as he foresaw they were inclined to do. It’s not difficult to see the very things prophesied in Scripture concerning the latter days happening in today’s world.
