Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary Definition of Truth: Conformity to fact or reality; exact accordance with that which is, or has been, or shall be. The truth of history constitutes its whole value. We rely on the truth of the scriptural prophecies.
SINNER’S WEALTH STORED UP FOR THE SAINTS
There are many examples of wealth transferring to God’s people: Abimelek to Abraham (Gen 20:14), Pharaoh to Joseph (Gen 41:42), Egypt to Hebrews (Exo 12:36), Haman to Mordechai (Est 8:2). Prophecy is usually not fulfilled in a single event, but over time. The ultimate fulfillment of this will occur after Jesus returns to earth. However, today this transfer is occurring right now to be used to fund the gospel being preached to the whole earth.
