The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.
This is such a wonderful promise knowing the blessing of the Lord is a pure blessing. God the Father and His holy child the Lord Jesus Christ who came in the flesh to save the whole world are pure. The scripture teaches He is righteous in all His ways, holy in all His works, His righteousness endureth forever, and there is no unrighteousness in Him. The new testament of the holy scripture refers to two types of sorrow. A godly sorrow versus the sorrow of this world. For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death. Similarly, the contrast between being rich toward God versus the prosperity of the wicked. Once again, the bible refers to mighty men of God being mighty men of valor who stand for righteousness, holiness, Godly men versus some men who were said to be men of valor but were sons of belial, or evil, wicked, or of the devil.
So, there is a prosperity from God, and then there is a prosperity of fools.
Every good and perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
This is why it is so important for Christians to discern good and evil so they receive the good and perfect gifts of God versus the false attempts of the enemy to deceive through the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life. The bible teaches the lusts of the world are not of the Father but of the world. Of course, Jesus came to save the world through His love which passeth knowledge shown through the sacrifice of His own life on the cross even when we were enemies. He came to save the world from their sins. Whosoever believes and receives God’s gift of grace through His son Jesus will have eternal life.
Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of God.
The scripture teaches that except ye become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
