Who are "Orphans and Widows"?

The requirements of True worship and the resulting approval of God is declared in God's own Word, as "looking after orphans and widows" as they undergo "distress"/"trouble" (James1:27; John16:33). 
(BOTH WORDS are translated from the same Greek word, "tribulation")
Yet Jesus made a different declaration as the basis of judgment, at Matt.25:40 ....or did he?
Who does THE BIBLE identify as "orphans and widows"? How does God Himself use this symbol?
John14:18,17; Isa.54:4,1,5,6,11,17; Lam.1:1; 5:3,5; Jer.15:8; 18:21; 49:11; 51:5; Isa.47:8; Rev.18:7; Eze.22:23,24,7.
The Bible uses "widows and orphans" as symbolism, and that symbolism is in perfect harmony with Matt.25:40...
which verse cannot be nullified as the requirement for life (Matt.25:46).
The anointed sons of God (Christ's "least brothers") who have been cast off from their "Land" and inheritance (Isa.66:5; John16:2; Rev.13:7; 11:3,7; 6:9,10,11; 11:2,7,8,9,10; Heb.13:13; 2Thess.2:4; Luke12:39; Joel.2:9; John10:1,10; Jer.48:27; Rev.3:11; 9:7,11)
and subjected as captive slaves to a new Master (Rev.13:10,7,17; Luke21:24; 4:18; Col.2:8; Rev.12:15; 16:13; Rev.9:14; 13:10)
previous to their restoration (Jer.30:3; Isa.14:2; Hosea6:11; Zeph.3:20; Rev.11:11),
...are declared by God and Christ themselves,
as spiritual "widows" and "orphans".
(Matt.25:35,36,37,38,39,40; 1Cor.4:11,12,13; Heb.11:8,9,10; Rom.8:17; John14:18; Lam.1:1; James1:27; Matt.25:40)
Those released from captivity, yet still destitute, have a choice. To put their trust in God while enduring with patience (1Tim.5:5; Rev.13:10), or to indulge in the temptation to serve Satan's lies (1Tim.5:6; James5:5; Rev.3:1)...imitating the harlot, by whom they had been made "widows" (Rev.17:1,6; 18:24; Matt.23:35,37; Luke13:33; Acts5:30; 3:15; Mark 10:33; 8:31) 
(1Pet.1:19; Rev.21:9).
