Part 22: Righteous Prayers Come From Those That Are Humane (Proverbs 21: 13)
In the name of God Master, of the Universe, Ruler of the earth
Editors Note: Beloved we bear witness as the Spirit sends us of these things. There are those among us that willfully with premeditation have a burning desire to devour the weak, the poor the elderly the young as babes and those that count every crumb of bread upon an often barren table. But there is a just reward for the treachery committed against those that are destitute. Have the bankers the finance companies, credit card schemers and various larger corporations gained most of their wealth by exploiting the poor?
“There was a time that many cried foul at capitalism as they said it sought to eat the poor as hogs swallow slop. However no one saw the just, honest capitalist as he was few and far away from the heathens table of greed.”
Meanwhile will the Bible justify compassion for all that liveth? The rich and the poor. Seek not to devour but to savor over things that are righteous for they last forever. While things rich in this time last only for a time as death will pass no one by.
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 Brethren we are so grateful for the wisdom that God allowed to come from the man Solomon. Read the Book of Wisdom at Proverbs for a daily blessing. Here we find so much that will guide us to Peace and Paradise. Glory to God.
“I felt compassion in my heart this flow of goodness extended to my fellow man. However many saw this as weakness and took advantage of this kindness. But those with hate and selfish desires can never ruin a good heart with a lack of compassion and love for the good hearted. Thus never will the righteous be devoured by the unrighteous or used in any manner. Many storms are cast upon us by the will of God for lessons in life. As we continue our journey we trust that we will learn something from the Word so that we will be able to help someone else. We cry Glory Hallelujah. “
Meanwhile so many in this world beset with evil come crying not for the poor and the disadvantage but reeking of exploitation and material gain. Thus the downtrodden the wretched of the earth are looked upon as losers and to some in times of great conflicts as cannon fodder while the rich the gentry sit up, laugh and smile at the classes they believe sit beneath them. However we come noting that Almighty God who we serve as we uplift our Savior Christ Jesus respects all of humankind in an equal fashion. However sin is frowned on whether it comes from the rich or poor. Follow us now to Proverbs for a word on this.
Proverbs 21: 13: “Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard.”
Those that have material resources that allow them to live as the rich and not so famous who turn a ear stopped up with cotton to the poor and those in need will suffer in the end. Although they may pile up temporal pleasures and material substances it will all be for naught at the Last and Final Day. Then the cry for mercy will be heard but it will go unanswered as this will be an end time that is too late.
There are several Parables where Jesus taught us about this subject. At Matthew 18: 23-35 we find a man who had been forgiven of a large debt as he made an earnest request to his Lord for such. However he immediately went out and physically attacked a person who owed him money. He also had the man thrown in prison. But he was reminded of the break he received and that he in turn should have shown kindness to the person who owed him money who only wanted more time to repay the debt. Will we do unto others as others have done unto us? Should Christian kindness reap kindness? Yes and no as some bow not to God but to Satan and move not in love but in other sentiments that are a contradiction to divine human nature.
Now go with us to Luke 16: 19-31 where we find another lesson on love and the rich and poor. Here a man Lazarus was a beggar who sought to eat the crumbs from the table of the rich and laid outside the gates of splendor asking and begging for alms. However a rich man frowned on him and kept all things to himself. But one day Lazarus was taken to Heaven to be with Lord. But the rich man full of sin not for being rich but for having an attitude that lacked compassion for the poor and his fellow man ended up in the hot place of Hell. Here the Word tells us he was able to look over and see Lazarus in comfort and well fed in the bosom of Abraham. He then asked Lazarus for a cool sop on his tongue. He was also told that there was a distance between them that could not be broken nor could he come over and surely no one from Heaven would want to venture to Hell. But what is also interesting about this story is that the rich man in torment also asked that someone go tell his brethren of the great tragedy and torment he experienced in Hell so they would not come to this place. But he was told of the Prophets and Moses who warned the brethren of this misery he was also reminded of those that do not listen. He was also reminded of free-will and there is no other choice. Thus no one will come back to warn you of the impending judgment of the Last and Final Day. The word has been written and it has been spoken.
Sadly some of the people that are in positions to help others claim they know nothing of their plight. Follow us over to Proverbs 24 and see what wisdom we find on this.
Proverbs 24: 11-12: “If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain;”
24: 12 “If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; dot not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? And shall not he render to every man according to his works?”
Are we not the keeper of our brother’s? If and when we see the tragedy of other’s we must as we move with love and compassion seek to help them. Let not another fall into a dung ditch when we have a bridge to the other side.
We will go now to the New Testament for a final word on the compassion that we should have as we continue our journey on this earth. At I John 3:17 we find a final word our discussion at this place.
I John 3: 17: “But whoso hath this worlds good and seethe his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?”
Beloved when you deny the unfortunate how can you love God? Think on these things. And remember that love is cheap but it comes with a price that cannot be spent in any store.
