Foundation Of God's Plan (LG80)

1 Sam 2:8  He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the beggar from the ash heap, to set them among princes and make them inherit the throne of glory. “For the pillars of the earth are the Lord’s, and He has set the world upon them."

This is the very foundation of God's plan that He makes the beggars and poor in this world to inherit the throne of glory, for they can be rich in faith to love Him by fully trusting and obeying Him.

James 2:5  Listen, my beloved brethren: Has God not chosen the poor of this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which He promised to those who love Him?

Luke 14:13-14  But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind. And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you; for you shall be repaid at the resurrection of the just.

Brethren, concerning the poor we need to change our mindset that they are not beggars but are sent by the Lord to be our blessings. Feast with them as benefactors and friends, just as we feast with the kings and mighty, and we will receive His rewards and blessings.

1 Cor 1:27-29  But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence.

Brethren, this is the great wisdom of God to test our faith and love for Him (study God's wisdom given to Solomon of dividing the baby in 1Kings 3:16-27). Though He wants to give us the highest rewards, yet being a righteous and just God, He has to be fair and faithful to His word. Always remember that it is God's plan that the poor are there to bless us. Don't ever despise them as dirt, scums or beggars.

So far we have covered the events of the 'Last Generation' up to opening of the first 3 seals and the deceptions of false christs (Mat 24:3-4)

Please continue with World War 3 (4th Seal) and Matthew 24 (up to Rapture), the teaching of our Lord Jesus which is arranged in chronological order for easy understanding.
