Rejoice in suffering

Rejoice in suffering, for there is no reward in Heaven for living a life of ease and luxury.
They who suffer on behalf of the Lord have laid up for themselves exceedingly great rewards and treasures in the everlasting and eternal Kingdom of Heaven.
Rejoice! Rejoice!
When the Lord shall come, and indeed He shall come, He shall turn everything upside down and the valleys shall be lifted up and the mountains shall be made low.
The outcasts shall be made kings and kings and men of power in this earth shall become outcasts, cast into outer darkness where there is much weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Blessed are the poor and woe unto the rich.
Because when our Lord shall come, He shall come with both rewards and recompense.
