Prosperity Preachers Beware!

What every schemer, who wears the name of Christ while peddling a self-gratifying gospel needs to see, is that THIS WORLD WAS NOT JESUS'S KINGDOM AND THIS WORLD IS NOT OUR HOME! A challenging experience of life is not an aberration of faith or manifestation of doubt, but is exactly the way God planned it. This is why the rest of Hebrews is so powerfully important in exposing the ruse of a popular "prosperity."

"And all these, [referring to the highly faithful] having gained approval through their faith, did NOT receive what was promised, because God had provided something better..." (Hebrews 11:39-40)

For the Hebrew believers, God's promise for something better is never in doubt--"God had [already] provided something better." They were never promised they would necessarily receive it then and there.

This doesn't sound anything like a promise for everyone to receive "Your Best Life Now!"
