We must read for ourselves the Biblical account of Lazarus and the rich man (Luke 16:19-31).
James, the brother of JESUS says: “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).
“For ye are all the children of God by [FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS]” (Galatians 3:24).
JESUS says: “How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the Kingdom of God” (Luke 18:24).
“And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God’” (Matthew 19:24).
“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, ‘[VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, THAT A RICH MAN SHALL HARDLY ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN]’” (Matthew 18:23).
“Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 5:10).
“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God” (Matthew 5:8-9).
James, the brother of Jesus also said: “Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is an enemy of God” (James 4:4)
“For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of [PREACHING TO SAVE THEM THAT BELIEVE]” (1 Corinthians 1:21).
“[FOR THE PREACHING OF THE CROSS IS TO THEM] that perish foolishness; but unto us [WHICH ARE SAVED IT IS THE POWER OF GOD]” (1 Corinthians 1:18-19).
“[FOR WHEN THEY SHALL SAY, PEACE AND SAFETY; THEN SUDDEN DESTRUCTION COMETH UPON THEM], as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape” (1 Thessalonians 5:3).
“[FOR THE WRATH OF GOD IS] revealed from heaven [AGAINST ALL UNGODLINESS AND UNRIGHTEOUSNESS OF MEN], who hold the truth in [UNRIGHTEOUSNESS]” (Romans 1:18).
Our Lord JESUS says: “[FOR AS A SNARE SHALL IT COME ON ALL THEM THAT DWELL ON THE FACE OF THE WHOLE EARTH].
[WATCH YE THEREFORE, AND PRAY ALWAYS], that ye may be accounted [WORTHY TO ESCAPE ALL THESE THINGS] that shall come to pass, [AND TO STAND BEFORE] the Son of man” (Luke 21:35-36).
“[FEAR NOT, LITTLE FLOCK]; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” (Luke 12:32).
“I am with you alway, [EVEN UNTO THE END OF THE WORLD]. Amen” (Matthew 28:20).
