THE CALLOUS & OFTEN CRUEL TREATMENT OF THE POOR
(ProVerse, Parables, Fables)
Part 2: Seeing The Destitution Of Wealth
Editors Note: Beloved we are grateful that God has sent us this way. However our mission comes often with great sacrifice. Please Help the FreedomJournal. You can do this by praying for our well-being. You can also Help us determine why we cannot post (email) the FreedomJournal. We are also poor by the world’s standards. Therefore we have very few resources to petition any authorities in the flesh regarding this matter. If it is God’s will we pray for some relief from the sad days that come with our many and counted days of Joy.
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 many have come this way with many eyes to see. However the Lord has fixed it to allow only certain messengers to render a report on things noted as the destitution and indigence of the rich and poor. Can you look back or to the next day of wealth without being poor? Just how could one see poverty from the kings table? Only for a little while as the glutton never had felt the pain of hunger as this hurt was not like that ache of sore feet or pain from a fall upon the earth.
So would the poor be poor always that saw these things? Is there a greater sacrifice among the poor messengers and sages than those that see and feel wealth? But can you be God’s messenger and not see and feel poverty? Meanwhile one messenger rendered a limited report as he saw only the rich side. But John saw both sides and was called upon to be merciful and objective in his report. Thus he redefined poverty and became aware of the destitution of wealth.
Tear Stained Weak Crowns of Gold
The crown of many rich kings had been
soaked in blood as the poor cried as they
were trampled upon and their meager fields
were ravished as the harvest went to the land-
lords and rovers that ruled the land.
But John’s report was not so much as what the
poor had not. Nor was it so much on what the
rich held. He concentrated on the parallels of
the rich and poor. As he saw destitution in those
not exclusively poor.
Nor was wealth only found among the rich.
Is it written anywhere that storehouses of gold
will allow peace, paradise this time or later?
Is it also written on any paper or in the sand that
material things will bring joy and happiness?
Love could not be bought with a money price.
Although there were many attempts to buy the
affections of love both male and female. However
there is no love without a sincere heart. And the
sincere heart only comes among those that know God.
So one man rich bought many things and boasted
about his wealth to the world. As the various illusions
set in he also thought he had purchased love or it
came his way as all good things come to the rich and
John meanwhile moved silently and quiet as a wind
breeze upon the earth. He also spoke in soft tones as
he marveled at the ability to see peace in peaceful moods
and actions. However he had little that could be called
wealth by the world’s standards.
But he prayed daily for the rich as he knew they were
destitute and most if not all knew this not. There is no
wealth or comfort among things temporary that only
exist in illusions as those without God see nothing or very
However he counted up his wealth not as a selfish ungrateful
person nor as one filled with pride. He knew that the joy, the
Peace and the Paradise he knew and would realize for an eternity
was great wealth. Thus the poor rich man was an indigent and
actually homeless for he knew not that his home was not his.
