2-18-2012 SUBJECT - POOR BY CHOICE


PROVERBS 13: 7 = THERE IS HE THAT MAKES HIMSELF RICH, YET HAS NOTHING: THERE IS HE THAT MAKES HIMSELF POOR, YET HAS GREAT RICHES.


JAMES 2: 5 = LISTEN MY BELOVED BRETHREN, HAS NOT GOD CHOSEN THE POOR OF THIS WORLD, RICH IN FAITH, AND HEIRS OF THE KINGDOM, WHICH HE HAS PROMISED TO THOSE THAT LOVE HIM?


LUKE 18: 22 =NOW WHEN JESUS HEARD THESE THINGS, HE SAID TO THE RICH MAN, YET YOU LACK ONE THING, SELL ALL THAT YOU HAVE AND DISTRIBUTE TO THE POOR AND YOU SHALL HAVE TREASURE IN HEAVEN; AND COME, FOLLOW ME.


LUKE 19: 8 = AND ZACCHAEUS STOOD AND SAID TO THE LORD; BEHOLD LORD, THE HALF OF MY GOODS I GIVE TO THE POOR; AND IF I HAVE TAKEN ANYTHING FROM ANY MAN, BY FALSE ACCUSATION, I RESTORE TO HIM FOURFOLD.


"REMARKS"

I, WHO WRITE THESE THINGS FOR YOUR EDIFICATION AND KNOWLEDGE, I HAVE DONE AND DO THE SAME. $I80,000 I HAVE HAD IN THE PAST 10 YEARS AND APPROXIMATELY HALF, HAS BEEN GIVEN TO THE POOR, NEAR AND FAR. I SAY THIS AS AN EXAMPLE, THAT YOU TOO, SHOULD FOLLOW THE EXAMPLE OF ME AND ZACCHAEUS.

I LIVE IN A SHACK BY THE RAILROAD TRACK, BY CHOICE. BECAUSE IT IS SUFFICIENT FOR MY NEEDS. MOST OF YOU LIVE ABOVE YOUR MEANS, TO IMPRESS OR TO FEEL RICH, IN A POOR AND WICKED WORLD SYSTEM AND BECAUSE OF IT, YOU ARE IN CONSTANT BONDAGE. BREAK FREE, MOVE INTO THE COUNTRY, GET OUT OF THE CITIES AND THE SUBURBS AND LIVE PLENTIFULLY AND SIMPLE.

NOT ONLY DID I GIVE TO THE POOR, ALSO, THE MONEY WENT TO GODLY THINGS AND THROUGH THESE SACRIFICES, SOULS ARE WON AND SAVED, FROM GODS WRATH, TO COME ON THE UNGODLY.


JAMES 5: 1-3 

 (1) GO TO NOW, YOU RICH MEN, WEEP AND HOWL, FOR THE MISERIES THAT SHALL COME UPON YOU.

(2) YOUR RICHES ARE CORRUPTED AND YOUR GARMENTS ARE MOTH EATEN.

(3) YOUR GOLD AND SILVER IS CANKERED,(CORRODED); AND THE RUST OF THEM SHALL BE A WITNESS AGAINST YOU AND SHALL EAT YOUR FLESH, AS IT WERE FIRE. YOU HAVE HEAPED UP TREASURE TOGETHER, FOR THE LAST DAYS.


"REMARKS"

WHAT IS A RICH PERSON? ANYTHING YOU HAVE IN ABUNDANCE, THAT CAN BE SHARED WITH OTHERS, POORER THAN YOU. THEN, EVEN THE POOREST IN THE WORLD, WHEN GIVING TO SOMEONE POORER THAN HE, WILL EVENTUALLY END THE POOR.

THESE WORDS GIVEN BY JESUS, YAH'SHUA, AREN'T IDLE WORDS, THEY WILL JUDGE YOU ON THAT DAY.

FEAR GOD AND LIVE AND GIVE TO THE POOR!
