I have heard a lot recently about the heresy of the health and wealth gospel.  I want to set the record clear.  I concur that  the good news of Jesus is all about Health, Wealth, and Prosperity.  We have been healed of our brokenness and spiritual demise.  Healed may not be the best word.  Perhaps better are the words raised from the dead and remade, recreated, restarted!
As for Wealth and Prosperity, there are two realities we have in Christ.  WE are fellow-heirs with Christ and heirs of God Himself (Romans 8:16 & 17).  Better news than this, God is going to inherit us (Ephesians 1:18)
Beyond this, God has given us Himself already.  WE have the Spirit of Christ living in us.  He is present to empower and embolden us to proclaim the good news and testify as to the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus and the ways He has changed our lives.  He is present to construct the character of Christ in us.  He is present to gift us so we can be useful tools to serve and build up the body of Christ.  He is the very presence of The Almighty Creator, Everlasting Father, King of Glory, LOVE HIMSELF!
HEALTH, WEALTH, AND PROSPERITY!  Far more than here and now in the physical!
