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.

 

Greetings Brethren,

 

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

the infamous.

 

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

little.

 

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.
