That scripture that talks about enduring to the end that is not even talking about the saints that are save now. You have to know what dispensation your reading about. I believe this is talking to the Saints that gets saved during the tribulation or those during the thousand year millennial reign.Which is another dispensation.I can't believe how many people do not understand the gospel of grace that Paul taught about, the mystery gospel. God bless you.

"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above" (v. 17a) This would better be translated, "Every generous giving and every perfect gift is from above." James' interest here is to show that God is good. Therefore, the gifts sent to us by God are good rather than evil. As noted above, he has already stated that God "tempts no one" (v. 13)."coming down from the Father of lights" (v. 17b). The phrase, "Father of lights," takes us back to the creation, where "God said, 'Let there be light,' and there was light" (Genesis 1:3) and God creating the great lights of the heavens (Genesis 1:14-18).Light and darkness are used in both Old and New Testaments as metaphors for a series of opposites: good and evil, order and chaos, security and danger, joy and sorrow, truth and untruth, life and death, salvation and condemnation. (Isaiah 5:20; John 3:19-21; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Ephesians 4:17-18).In the conflict between light and darkness, light always wins. Darkness can never dispel light. Light always dispels darkness. "with whom can be no variation, nor turning shadow".

If one lacks another then it is not from God . It has to be in the light for God is light. Also there is no turning or variableness with Him. He does not change from one thing to another. God is so GOOOOOG !!!!
