What kind of world do we live in where according to recent statistics that since the 2008 financial crisis there have been more billionaires created than at anytime in this world, and yet, in a recent research report over 1.4 million children starved to death last year?
What kind of world do we live in where a recent article headlined: “World’s eight richest people have same wealth as poorest 50%”, yet there are over one billion people living on the edge of poverty in this world?
Clearly, something is wrong with such a disparity with a few people holding such massive amounts of wealth compared to excessive large numbers of people having no wealth!
Clearly something is not RIGHT!
The Apostle Paul expressed, said: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12). “For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil” (Romans 13:3).
BE WISE AND FOLLOW JESUS CHRIST!
Our Lord Jesus says: “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal. But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also” (Matthew 6:19-21).
“Woe unto you that are rich; for ye have received your consolation” (Luke 6:24). “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Mark 8:36-37).
James, the brother of Jesus said: “Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is an enemy of God” (James 4:4). “Hath not God chosen the [POOR OF THIS WORLD RICH IN FAITH], and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?” (James 2:5).
”The way of life is above to the wise, that he may depart from hell beneath” (Proverbs 15:24).
“Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth from death” (Proverbs 11:4).
