Those who do not speak up or help the down trodden are not free of guilt. Their silence makes them a part of the oppression.

If you don't read it how can you have faith.

We just need to hang on a little longer God’s Great Day is very near. They make fun of us, and look down on us because of our misfortune. They even decided our misery causes them misery so instead of comforting us they choose to ignore. God sees what they are doing.

(Proverbs 17:5) 5 He that is holding the one of little means in derision has reproached his Maker. He that is joyful at [another’s] disaster will not be free from punishment.

Jehovah’s Great Day is coming very soon. Those who did not help us and who taunted us and ignored our cries for help will get what they themselves earned.

(Isaiah 10:1-3) 10 Woe to those who are enacting harmful regulations and those who, constantly writing, have written out sheer trouble, 2 in order to push away the lowly ones from a legal case and to wrest away justice from the afflicted ones of my people, for the widows to become their spoil, and that they may plunder even the fatherless boys! 3 And what will YOU men do at the day of being given attention and at the ruin, when it comes from far away? Toward whom will YOU flee for assistance, and where will YOU leave YOUR glory,

Those who do not speak up for the downtrodden and who do nothing for them will not fair well. Their lack of concern reveals what is really in their hearts no matter how moral they may seem.

(Matthew 25:41-46) 41 “Then he will say, in turn, to those on his left, ‘Be on YOUR way from me, YOU who have been cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the Devil and his angels. 42 For I became hungry, but YOU gave me nothing to eat, and I got thirsty, but YOU gave me nothing to drink. 43 I was a stranger, but YOU did not receive me hospitably; naked, but YOU did not clothe me; sick and in prison, but YOU did not look after me.’ 44 Then they also will answer with the words, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison and did not minister to you?’ 45 Then he will answer them with the words, ‘Truly I say to YOU, To the extent that YOU did not do it to one of these least ones, YOU did not do it to me.’ 46 And these will depart into everlasting cutting-off, but the righteous ones into everlasting life.. . .

Those who sit back silently while people are not being treated for their illnesses because of the corruption have made themselves a part of it.

(Proverbs 31:8, 9) 8 Open your mouth for the speechless one, in the cause of all those passing away. 9 Open your mouth, judge righteously and plead the cause of the afflicted one and the poor one. . .

Those who are downtrodden have become despised in others eyes. It is their sin not ours.

(Proverbs 14:21) 21 The one despising his own fellowman is sinning, but happy is he who is showing favor to the afflicted ones. . .

(1 John 3:14, 15) . . .He who does not love remains in death. 15 Everyone who hates his brother is a manslayer, and YOU know that no manslayer has everlasting life remaining in him.

Many are trying to help but their resource are limited. Unfortunately those who are able to help are staying back. Those who are doing what they can God will remember.

(Proverbs 19:17) He that is showing favor to the lowly one is lending to Jehovah, and his treatment He will repay to him.

When those of use are suffering oppression and being downtrodden. Many will walk away and ignore the counsel to weep with those who weep. So there are thousands of us going through a lot by ourselves. God knows what we are going through how those around us respond will determine how he judges them.

(Romans 12:14-16) . . .. 15 Rejoice with people who rejoice; weep with people who weep. 16 Be minded the same way toward others as to yourselves; do not be minding lofty things, but be led along with the lowly things. Do not become discreet in YOUR own eyes. . .

Because we are alone and don’t have help or an ear to listen we may act a little crazy at times. It happens, oppression can do a lot to us mentally. We need to pray for the strength and wisdom to make it through it.

(Ecclesiastes 7:7) 7 For mere oppression may make a wise one act crazy, and a gift can destroy the heart. . .

We only have to hold on a little longer. We were not promised it would be easy but we were promised we would have the inner peace to deal with whatever comes our way. Even if that includes death. We will not have fears.

(John 14:27) 27 I leave YOU peace, I give YOU my peace. I do not give it to YOU the way that the world gives it. Do not let YOUR hearts be troubled nor let them shrink for fear.

(John 16:33) 33 I have said these things to YOU that by means of me YOU may have peace. In the world YOU are having tribulation, but take courage! I have conquered the world. . .

If we can hang on it will be worth it.

(Revelation 21:1-4) 21 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the former heaven and the former earth had passed away, and the sea is no more. 2 I saw also the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God and prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his peoples. And God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. . .
