Blessed Is The Poor , Yours Is The Kingdom Of God!
Luke 6:20-21 (KJ21)
20 And He lifted up His eyes on His disciples and said, “Blessed be ye poor, for yours is the Kingdom of God.
Now I understand why the poor have the gospel. It looks like its easier for the poor to enter the Kingdom of God than the rich.
Jesus Himself said this.
Matthew 11:5 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
5 the blind receive their sight and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up and the poor have the Gospel preached to them
He also said this:
Matthew 19:16-26 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
16 And behold, one came and said unto Him, “Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?”
17 And He said unto him, “Why callest thou Me good? There is none good but One, that is, God. But if thou wilt enter into Life, keep the commandments.”
18 He said unto Him, “Which?” Jesus said, “‘Thou shalt do no murder; thou shalt not commit adultery; thou shalt not steal; thou shalt not bear false witness;
19 honor thy father and thy mother; and, thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.’”
20 The young man said unto Him, “All these things have I kept from my youth up. What lack I yet?”
21 Jesus said unto him, “If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell what thou hast and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in Heaven; and come and follow Me.”
22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.
23 Then said Jesus unto His disciples, “Verily I say unto you, that a rich man shall hardly enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.
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.”
25 When His disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, “Who then can be saved?”
26 But Jesus beheld them and said unto them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
