Prosperity of the Wicked

Could the prosperity of the wicked be looking at False Prophets ruling in tribulation?


Isa 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of PEACE <07965>.

Col 3:15 And let the PEACE OF GOD rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

Joh 14:27 PEACE I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Jer 29:7 And seek the PEACE of the city whither I have caused you to be carried away captives, and pray unto the LORD for it: for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace.

Job 36:11 If they obey and serve {}, they shall spend their days in PROSPERITY (GOOD), and their years in PLEASURES.

Ro 3:17 And the WAY of PEACE have they not known:

Joh 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the WAY, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.


Isa 48:22 There is no PEACE <07965>, saith the LORD, unto the wicked.

Jer 9:8 Their tongue is as an arrow shot out; it speaketh deceit: one speaketh PEACEABLY to his neighbour with his mouth, but in heart he layeth his wait.

Ps 28:3 Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which speak PEACE <07965> to their neighbours, but mischief is in their hearts.

Ge 37:4 And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak PEACEABLY unto him.

Mt 10:22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

Da 11:21 And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in PEACEABLY, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.

La 3:17 And thou hast removed my soul far off from PEACE: I forgat prosperity.

Da 8:25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by PEACE shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.

1Th 5:3 For when they shall say, PEACE and SAFETY; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.


Ps 73:3 For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity <07965> of the wicked.

Pr 23:17 Let not thine heart envy sinners: but be thou in the fear of the LORD all the day long.

De 23:6 Thou shalt not seek their PEACE nor their PROSPERITY all thy days for ever.

Pr 3:31 Envy thou not the oppressor, and choose none of his WAYS.

Pr 24:1 Be not thou envious against evil men, neither desire to be with them.

Ps 37:1 Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.

Ps 37:7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his WAY, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.

Job 21:7 Wherefore do the wicked live, become old, yea, are **mighty in power**?

Da 8:24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.

Jer 12:1 Righteous art thou, O LORD, when I plead with thee: yet let me talk with thee of thy judgments: Wherefore doth the WAY of the wicked PROSPER? wherefore are all they happy that deal very treacherously?


The Bible appears to be associating prosperity or peace with Christ. Therefore not to envy or desire the prosperity of the wicked would be a command not to partake of their false gospels. Because in tribulation and judgment, these would be identified with the false prophets and false christs ruling in the NAME of Christ.
