New King James Version (NKJV)
“3 “Blessed are the poor in ‘spirit’ (ruwach: expression, breath, etc..),
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
No one ever said that following in YH’shua’s steps would not bring challenges, quite the opposite…. So if you are feeling persecuted in the Father’s Word and Works? Rejoice!!!! for incredible things are to come 🙂
