James 2:1-10 NKJV
My brethren, do not hold the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with partiality. For if there should come into your assembly a man with gold rings, in fine apparel, and there should also come in a poor man in filthy clothes, and you pay attention to the one wearing the fine clothes and say to him, “You sit here in a good place,” and say to the poor man, “You stand there,” or, “Sit here at my footstool,” have you not shown partiality among yourselves, and become judges with evil thoughts? Listen, my beloved brethren: Has God not chosen the poor of this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which He promised to those who love Him? But you have dishonored the poor man. Do not the rich oppress you and drag you into the courts? Do they not blaspheme that noble name by which you are called? If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you do well; but if you show partiality, you commit sin, and are convicted by the law as transgressors. For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all.
The Lord showed me a vision today 08/21/2014 which is why I posted the above quote from the book of James.
In the vision I saw a preacher standing at the doorway of a building called church that he built. He was dripping with wealth , in fact, his suit was made out of money. I then saw a line of people coming into the building called church with loads of cash in their hands. Their proximity to the pastor and status and position in the building called church was directly related to the amount of money they were showing when they passed by the pastor. I then saw people at the end of the line who had little to no money, in fact, some may have been need of money. These people were abused by others, I assume elders or other church leaders, both physically and verbally. There was no question in my mind that these poor were not welcome in the building called church.
