They are poor for hatred is as a spider’s web knotted in their hearts choking the breath of life like a hangman’s noose.
They are poor…clothed in exquisite taste, but to the trained eye mere ghoulish attire.
Knitted together with cohorts, they spew venom on this person and that.
They are poor yet know not, for all they have is money, all they have is property, all they have are names on rich lists.
All they have is nothing..
Nothing to show before the judge of life,
Nothing of eternal value for a handshake by the Father of Lights.
Nothing… in their money vaults called poverty.
Scriptural inspiration: Rev 3:17
For so long people have said their lives ignite yawns of boredom and their destinies are like skirting shadows here and there.
The code of silence bolts entry into lives ladened with potholes and ambushes at every turn…lives misunderstood..lives of the wise.
Sacrificed, they live for generations to arise out of the mud heap they languish in.
An offering for the freeing of the cursed led astray by false headlights.
There will come a time, that time of the Most High, like a sudden burst from the heavens of torrential rain when the silence will break and the purpose of their lives will be heard over mountains and across the seas.
Each as one with many faces of the man, the woman, the child… of the student, the worker and church goer…
As many a people broken, now made whole…
on a bumpy road, now made straight..
their breakthroughs are his and hers, of them becoming a people of substance living in abundance and heading into blissful eternity…
They are lifestyle intercessors, their truth shall be known, a prophetic people of fecundity.
