Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for James 1:14


1:14 Every man is tempted, when - In the beginning of the temptation. He is drawn away - Drawn out of God, his strong refuge. By his own desire - We are therefore to look for the cause of every sin, in, not out of ourselves. Even the injections of the devil cannot hurt before we make them our own. And every one has desires arising from his own constitution, tempers, habits, and way of life. And enticed - In the progress of the temptation, catching at the bait: so the original word signifies.

    The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

    How the bible speaks to us by the spirit of are Messiah. Where are we in 2016? You can clearly see how these Prophecy is being fulfilled every day without a doubt but sadly in are time people don't want to hear the TRUTH instead people are so quick to wrath over no sense of knowledge,people nowadays for more focus on there phones,games,movies and all material things of all kinds less important. And one thing they fail to acknowledge giving back to are creator who created us and everything in this world from dust of the ground. But we as Christians real Christians need to hear the word of GOD and spread it around pass your knowledge to others. Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Let your light so shine for others to see who you are children of the light. Ephesians 5:8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light Study the bible keep the word of GOD in your mouth and in your heart and mind always, and put it as your everyday life and put on the full of armor of GOD-Ephesians 6:13 Lets not forget to always follow his commandments and he will write his laws within your heart and mind focus my brothers and sisters do not let this precious time pass on by use your time wise. Walk with him follow Jesus Christ.

    Comment*James 1:19 The verse does not demand silence, but rather it encourages caution, teaching the continous discipline of the tongue. Speaking is to be economical, using few words and appropriate. Talebearing is to be strictly avoided because it wounds and tears down. Nothing is as effective in building a relationship as is speaking and hearing to one another
  • Noma
    God is love above all things. His love for us is unconditional and so we must just hold on to his love,and share his love amongst ourselves and above all to the unsaved
