The Righteous are afflicted, but Good Fortune Befalls the Wicked/False Believers(Vice Versa).....
This thing^^ that happens here on earth is nothing but vanity, which means it is meaningless. In other words, you can't tell if someone is blessed based off the carnal so-called "blessings" of this world, such as career success, job promotions, getting married, academic achievements, good health, being physically alive etc. God's Blessings are in spirit, not in the flesh. So that means we can't look at a person's life to see if they are blessed, we have to look at their spirit, and the only way to judge their spirit is by seeing if they are of Christ, according to the Word of God which is the Bible....NOT according to their opinions, emotions and feelings.
If anyone has questions about certain verses in the bible or would like to be edified and fellowship with us in scripture, you can join us every Monday and Thursday between 6:00pm and 9:00pm(Eastern Time U.S.) and every Sunday at 12:00 noon. Just Dial: 559-726-1300 access code 443624#
Grace and peace.
