When this kind of Spirit Inspired prose is released by the Holy Ghost, why would anyone sit still for anything less? From Kris Vallotton

"Pauperhood is relegated to the children of a lesser god. It is the condition of slaves who have yet to discover their freedom on the other side of the river of baptism and find themselves still captured by the dark prince of torture and torment. He is the one who assigns them to a life of poverty, pain and depression through a diabolical play of illusion. He hopes to conceal their true identity forever. This evil prince feeds his captors the poisonous rations of religion, convincing them it will fill their soul’s hunger for righteousness. These slaves, blindfolded by their sin, think that they are laboring for their own freedom and work to pave their way out of prison with bricks built from the miry clay of self-righteousness. Yet unknowingly, brick by brick, they are erecting their own chambers of death. Worse yet, they birth children into the same darkness, ultimately creating legacies of bondage with mindsets of hopelessness.

But on a hill far away a Lamb turned Lion descended into this death camp through the porthole of Golgotha. Crashing through the gates of hell, He met the dark prince in the mother of all battles. With three spikes and a thorny crown, the Captain of the Host conquered the devil, eternally disarming his destructive weapons of sin, death, hell and the grave. Sin could not tempt Him, death couldn’t defeat Him, hell couldn’t keep Him and the grave could not hold Him. With watching witnesses and waiting warriors, He ascended through earth’s surface. The planet quaked to release its captives while heaven thundered to receive its treasure. They weren’t just waiting for rescued souls to be redeemed, but for the crowning of the sons who were to be revealed. For with His blood the Holy One of Radiance purchased rotten, ragged sinners and recreated us into His righteous, reigning Saints." ~Kris Vallotton

pau·per [paw-per] Show IPA
noun1. a person without any means of support, especially a destitute person who depends on aid from public welfare funds or charity.
2. a very poor person.2 tim Teach and urge these things. 3 If anyone steaches a different doctrine and does not agree with tthe sound2 words of our Lord Jesus Christ and the teaching uthat accords with godliness, 4 vhe is puffed up with conceit and wunderstands nothing. He has an unhealthy craving for xcontroversy and for yquarrels about words, which produce envy, dissension, slander, evil suspicions, 5 and constant friction among people zwho are depraved in mind and deprived of the truth, aimagining that godliness is a means of gain. 6 But bgodliness cwith contentment is great gain, 7 for dwe brought nothing into the world, and3 we cannot take anything out of the world. 8 But eif we have food and clothing, with these we will be content. 9 But fthose who desire to be rich fall into temptation, ginto a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that hplunge people into ruin and destruction.
As for the rich in at his present age, charge them bnot to be haughty, nor cto set their hopes on dthe uncertainty of riches, but on God, ewho richly provides us with everything to enjoy. 18 They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, 19 thus storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is truly life.eph 6 7With good will render service, as to the Lord, and not to men, 8knowing that whatever good thing each one does, this he will receive back from the Lord, whether slave or free. 9And masters, do the same things to them, and give up threatening, knowing that both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no partiality with Him.
