Extreme Poverty Is Now At Record Levels – 19 Statistics About The Poor That Will Absolutely Astound You

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, a higher percentage of Americans is living in extreme poverty than they have ever measured before. In 2010, we were told that the economy was recovering, but the truth is that the number of the "very poor" soared to heights never seen previously. Back in 1993 and back in 2009, the rate of extreme poverty was just over 6 percent, and that represented the worst numbers on record. But in 2010, the rate of extreme poverty hit a whopping 6.7 percent.

Psalms 9:17-18 (KJV) The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. For the needy shall not alway be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.

There were two trees in the garden...one produces / creates True Life & blessings...the other one only consumes / deceives & curses...Whose is your Abba?

Ecc 9:17...The words of wise men heard in quiet are better than the shouts of him who rules among fools. wisdom is better than weapons of war, but one sinner destroys much good..

Pagan root = pagan fruit..."public / pagan education system" bearing fruit...who is gardening you...?

Tree (worldview) of Me Me ME!!! the root of the Flesh
Dis - Regard... Faith in YHVH's Nutrition...Manipulation...
Dis - Connect... Truth of YHVH's Mercy...Rejection
Dis - Pair....Grace in YHVH's Life...Obsession
Dis - Believe...Reward in YHVH's Love...Revenge

Pro 21:4...Haughtiness of eyes (vain worth ship) and a proud (exaggerated) heart, even the tillage (growing / cultivating of tares / posterity) of the wicked, are sin. (dis respecting, dis regarding, dis believing in the eyes of YHVH). The thoughts of the (steadily) diligent / elect tend only to plenteousness, but everyone who is impatiently evil and hasty, hastens only to want. Securing treasures (personal or group gain, taxes) by a lying tongue will bring destruction and death to those who seek it.

2John:9... Any one who runs (away from) on ahead / or off track of God and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ (who is not content with what Christ did, is doing, or will do in the future according to His Living Word) does not have God; but he who continues to live in the doctrine / teaching of Christ (does have God), he has both the Father and the Son.

Gal 6:7-9... Do not be not deceived and then deluded and then misled; God wil not allow Himself to be sneered at (scorned, disdained, or mocked by mere pretensions or professions or by His precepts being set aside.) (he inevitably deludes himself who attempts to delude God.) For whatever a man sows, that and that only is what he will reap.
