Ever wondered why people who serve Creator YHWH Most High are often poor, afflicted, chastened and weary? Believe it or not, this is testing and longsuffering for good, blessings and glory.
Read Luke 6: 20-21 – And he lifted up his eyes on his Disciples, and said: “Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of YHWH God. “Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you shall be satisfied. “Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh.
How many pastors, bishops, educators or motivational speakers worldwide counsel or encourage people to be a POOR disciple? I cannot believe I am writing such motivational counsel or words, as I hate lack, being poor or dependent on anyone for anything. I believe I am writing these words as I have been praying to Creator YHWH day and night, asking like David:
Many there are that say of my soul: ‘There is no salvation for him in YHWH God.’ Selah – Psalms 3:3
Abba Father knows most people desire to be rich of world more than suffer for His Kingdom within. So when Creator YHWH calls and chooses YOU He takes your all of world to zero, and master potters you a new heart, mind, soul and spirit. This is a spiritual operation that can last decades, it consists of the fruits of the Holy Spirit which include longsuffering and self-control.
Just the word self-control scares most people. as this requires you versus you alone. You see, self-control is what germinates the fruits of the Holy Spirit. This is the Jacob wrestle match of your life and world, this is why many people will stare, look and watch you in pain, turmoil, battle, fight and say: There is no salvation for him in YHWH God. But they are horribly wrong! They are thinking like world, NOT KIngdom of the Most High, within.
Most people think suffering, poverty, shame or loss is your own fault. My statement and questions to you are: Did Joseph ask his brothers to throw him into a pit or into slavery? No. Did David ask for his Son Absalom to seek to kill him? No. Cain & Abel were the first and second sons of Adam & Eve and not even they could live in peace, love and harmony without violence, conflict, hatred and murder.
Does this sound like your family, Church or denomination? To what I have read in the Holy Bible, very few prophets were rich, happy and at peace. Why? Because they were being chosen, chastened, afflicted, tested and rejected of people and or world daily.
For you are a people holy to YHWH Lord your God, and YHWH Lord has chosen you to be a people for his treasured possession, out of all the peoples who are on the face of the Earth. – Deuteronomy 14:2
The above scripture counsels no-one has chosen to be a Christian, Kingdom believer or follower of YHWH Most High. We have all been chosen, called and appointed to bear the fruit of His Spirit, keep His laws, statutes and commandments as a perpetual covenant.
HOW POOR ARE YOU?
Being poor of world is an awful experience and bad idea, but being poor of HIS Holy Kingdom is a brilliant sacrifice, testimony and service to the Most High. I know what it is like for Creator YHWH to take you from a MILLION to zero and walk by faith not by world or sight on a daily basis. YHWH Creator Most High does not want his children leaning to their own understanding.
Trust in YHWH the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. – Proverbs 3:5 KJV
When you begin to walk by faith NOT by sight or world and NOT lean to your own understanding, no hustle, no trick, no lies, no deceit, no breaking of His Holy Sabbath. Things can get pretty poor fast. What Creator YHWH desires and commands of His Children and followers is TRUST + OBEY HIS VOICE & WORD.
This is a whole new world and NO RICH Man or Woman can enter unless stripped to go sell what you have and give it to the poor. This is no joke! If you do not do it now, when time of the Mark of the Beast arrives you will accept the mark or sell all. So in reality, Creator YHWH is just preparing His Children of what is now and to come.
So how poor are you? Have you ever been homeless. hungry where you go bed cold and hungry? Have you ever been so scared you run home to your closet to pray in safety, then plead for help, direction and mercy? Have your family, churchfolks and friends rejected, alienated and crucified you into a pit? Have you ever prayed to Abba Father YHWH Most High and said, bless me or kill me? If you have answered yes to most of the above you are truly POOR IN SPIRIT well done. I would rather be poor in spirit than rich in my own mindset, world and carnal spirit of things or stuff.
I have been around very wealthy and rich people in many parts and countries of the world. One thing I have commonly learned, is they all DIE and leave their riches or wealth behind. For me, I am glad to be POOR IN SPIRIT, as I have literally sacrificed, invested and stored my treasures of houses, land and cash in Heaven by YHWH as called, chosen, chastened and living testimony. The most painful experience for me, is watching friends and family disown, reject and watch you bleed in poverty without rejoicing as comrade.
POOR IN SPIRIT= YOUR MIRACLE
When you reach the depths or bottom of brokeness or POOR IN SPIRIT your nearing your miracle. In Psalms 5:9 listen to David cry:
O YHWH LORD, lead me in Thy righteousness because of them that lie in wait for me; make Thy way straight before my face.
This is why I cannot hang with church-folks, family, relatives or people who do NOT understand what it is to be broken, rich, poor, homeless or chosen of YHWH Most High. How can you counsel or instruct where YOU have not walked, sacrificed or experienced in living or life?
This is why many called few chosen. Matthew 22:14
Many called few chosen, because only a FEW people could ever lose or sacrifice everything they have and experience zero, into solitude & silence. Yet humbly and obediently, rise, pray and worship YHWH Most High daily. I don’t care if you have a MILLION or BILLION in cash, you will never know your true worth or value unto Creator YHWH until you have zero and just your mind, soul and spirit within. You see Creator YHWH values your WITHIN more than the entire world or things of world. Read 1 John 2:15-17
So when your at your lowest, you feel and hear within enough is enough, your miracle is about to rain down from Heaven to Earth. Abba Father YHWH will never pour new wine into an old bottle or use old clay on His potters wheel for His called or chosen.
But now thus says YHWH the Lord, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am YHWH the Lord your God, the Holy One of Yisrael not Israel, your Saviour. I give Egypt as your ransom, Cush and Seba in exchange for you. – Isaiah 43:13
The above scripture proves do not FEAR, you have been redeemed, called, chosen and you will pass through waters [plural] rivers [plural], fire, yet you have been ransomed with a precious price. This is the most motivational love story in the entire universe. It is the toughest journey and sacrifice anyone will ever decide or make.
What is strange or hilarious is who’s celebrating your sacrifice or coming miracle but you? Keep your eye on the prize WITHIN and pray all you can, praising HIM daily even if poor or broken only for a while. Poor of spirit is poor of world, for one needs to be emptied of all things world even unto death, to be filled with His Kingdom within.
In His service,
