A dramatic Age in the world's future is coming soon!  You need to prepare for what is going to happen

It's time to ask some "why's" and "how's". How and why did the world get into this mess?

In a Nutshell. "Poor people don't get their share and the rich have an abundance. Wealth brings power and self interest keeps it that way."

Let's look at the poorest extreme of economic groups of people living on the earth.

The poorest people group struggle for a basic share of resource out of the world.

Out of necessity, all or most of their efforts are spent on survival. At least one third of the world's population are in this category. (coming out of just about every country in the world) Most try to survive with insufficient food and inadequate housing.

In addition to that poor state of life, there are other factors that nearly always compound the basic problems of life. These other factors include, war, famine, drought, flood, natural disasters, authoritarian social and political systems, all resulting in troubled lives, such as is found in domestic strife and rebellion, that bring even greater suffering, persecution and even death. At best, their physical bodies are malnourished and their souls, mind and spirits are depressed.

Even the God of the Bible knew about this.

Deuteronomy 15:11 "For the poor will never cease from the land; therefore I command you, saying, "You shall open your hand wide to your brother, to your poor and your needy, in your land." (What God is going to do about it will be spoken of later. In what is going to happen, you will find hope)

People nearer the opposite extreme of economic wealth strive after maximum resources from the world.

As a whole, this group has either sufficient or over abundant resources. Most live to work, rather than work to live, which is the lot of most men. The lesser in this group, out of their sufficiency, strive for further accumulation of money, prestige, better health, comfort and even pleasure. Most have little time or interest in assisting the poorer group in their need. The more-wealthy of these tend towards extreme wealth as a basis of wielding power in society, sometimes to the detriment of others, tending not to notice or ignore those with lesser resources. Some even gain further wealth at the expense of the poorest, sometimes through being in positions of social, economic or political power. Self-interest and pride are often more prevalent in their behaviour.

To these, the statement of Jesus Christ to the rich young ruler is relevant.

Jesus said to him, "If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me".

(One day, this perfection will come in a way you would not expect. That will make life a joy and not a burden).
