LOOKING PAST FOOLS AND SHAME: 2008
Editors Note: ďJob never failed in Faith nor did he have a day of hunger. Those that followed Christ left all they had but found comfort as a soft rock was their pillow at night.Ē
Part 2: Poverty
In the name of Almighty God, Master of the universe Ruler of all the earth
Peace be unto you. To the Church and believing Christians everywhere. To those that believe in the Bible as the supreme authority that governs all of humankind. In this we give thanks to God the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit that leads and guides us the straightway.
Beloved we have seen poverty as we have been encamped among the destitute as an alleged sentence by the Foolish who believe Black-Listing, Censorship and Economic Lynching is a way to silence Godís Truth. Meanwhile we have seen and heard PoVerty as not the acceptance of an impoverished state but, the realization that in all things there is the heart. Thus, PoVerty allows one to see God and realize that you cannot testify of things you have not seen.
The Poor Can See High And Low
We serve a God that sits high but
renders judgment and mercy to all
levels of humankind, all stations in
Meanwhile man that has come from
birth high and lifted up with pride can
only see high as low is demeaning and the
poor are to be pitied and often despised.
One day as a rich man who did not
jump from a high building lost all he
had he landed on a row that had only
skids as the wood was used as fire,
Wood at the encampment of those that
rode the rail. He had great difficulty
adjusting and since he could not gain
entrance to a tall building he leaped screaming,
And hollering from a low bridge over a muddy
stinking chemical filled creek in Bush Town.
But there also existed at one time in this life
a poor man who was left a great fortune,
By a distant relative that loved him with all
his heart and soul. He had good sense as
he was not Foolish and was able to adjust
to the ways of some of the rich.
However he never gave up his desire and
need to look low as there he found comfort
on his knees and this was a place where
he found Peace and understanding of all
