MATTERS OF THE POOR

MATTERS OF THE POOR

Ecclesiastes 9:15 – Now there was found in it a poor wise man, and he by his wisdom delivered the city;…

The Lord has revealed:

Some of the materially poor of this world are going to be used by GOD in ways that will astound those who have more in the material realm. Luke 12:21 states, “So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”

The Lord shall use the wisdom of the poor who are rich in faith to minister to the worldly rich.

James 2:5
…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?

I Corinthians 1:26-28
For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:

But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:

Also, James 2 provides more information on what GOD expects relative to the poor.

Some of the worst of the worst and the lowest of the low are GOD’s chosen vessels of honor. GOD will save, sanctify and empower them on levels, to date, that are unprecedented! Our Father will use such to love, serve, and obey Him. They will pray and marvelous spiritual actions will manifest. Largely, society has dismissed and “forgotten” such people. But GOD has not dismissed or forgotten them. He is going to mightily exalt some people of the poor ilk. Not only will GOD exalt them but He will uplift them and launch them into dimensions of glory that will leave the unbelievers stunned and deeply affected by the power of GOD that will be so obviously present. GOD will reside in some such people to the extent that they will be continually in tune with the move of GOD and He will favor and reward their fervency on His holy behalf. Deliverance from material poverty will be the result for some.

Those chosen of the poor will be aglow with godliness, and overflowing in the fruits of GOD’s Spirit. They will prostrate themselves before our holy GOD – seeking Him early and in earnest. GOD will be desired more than natural food – they will crave the food of the Word of GOD – they will hunger for more and more of GOD, His presence, and His Word. They will cleave to being doers of holy precepts.

The days of GOD’s chosen poor being dismissed shall end. Those chosen will become irresistible because of the high level of spiritual impartation deposited in them by the Divine Most High Himself. Luke 21:15 states, “I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.” JESUS is irresistible to those who love Him, and to those who hate Him. The chief rulers could not resist crucifying Him because they could not bear JESUS or His truth. The impact of holiness is undeniable. The force of GOD’s power will cause people to choose. Who is on the Lord’s side?! There will be those who witness GOD’s power and make a choice to reject what has been revealed. Woe to them!

There are people today who live in homeless shelters who are warriors for GOD. Many of them do not know it – yet. Paul, the apostle, did not know that he was a chosen vessel until his date with JESUS described in the book of The Acts.

Many have underestimated the poor. There are Vietnam and other veterans of wars who live on the streets and in homeless shelters. They are under the influence of the demonic. GOD will deliver some of them, and they will come to know who they are – most importantly, they will come to know WHOSE they are – people of the Most High. They will use, before they dropped out of life, what they learned in military capacities. They have not forgotten that training. GOD will save, sanctify, and fill them with His Spirit. GOD will use their training in useful ways for kingdom of GOD purposes.

I lived in a homeless shelter and met several people whom GOD revealed to me are chosen unto Him. I met one homeless former military man, John, whose father was a preacher. John is a chosen vessel of GOD. I told him that, and gave him some truth from GOD’s Word. He received the message as truth.

When GOD is ready, He will launch, and exalt more such people to partake of the deep things of GOD as revealed by His Spirit.

Isaiah 26:9
…with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.

Psalm 72:4
He shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the children of the needy,…

Isaiah 10:27
…and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.
