Discussion for James 1:2

  • Marilyn dickinson on James 1:2
    i would like to know what it means, the tree of life, and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the Nations, what does this really mean i would like to know please, this is out of the book of Revelation ch.22, verse.2.
  • WHAT GOD LIKES ABOUT USMishael - in Reply on James 1:2
    Please study these comments yourself in Genesis.

    There were 2 Trees in the Garden of Eden.

    Adam and Eve ate from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.

    Their spiritual connection to God was severed. Jesus eventually came to restore that connection to His born again Believers.

    The Godhead (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) discussed together how to protect the Tree of Life. If Adam and Eve ate of that one, they would live forever in a sinful state.

    The Garden was protected and Adam and Eve were driven from the Garden.

    Later, you will see that God had moved the Tree of Life to Heaven.

    As far as I know, no archaeologists have ever dug down and found the remains of the Garden of Eden. Most humans have a conscience about good and evil, even if some choose to be contrary.

    Revelation 22

    1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

    2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the TREE OF LIFE, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the NATIONS.

    3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:

    Comment: some scholars believe that we'll need the leaves for illnesses and physical deformities, but I don't think so. We'll obtain our new transformed bodies in the clouds with Jesus during the Rapture.

    My guess would be for the diversity of people going to heaven; like races, cultures.

    When you view the diversity of nature and animals, birds, etc. It makes sense to me that the Lord would desire the diversity of humans. Who wants to look at one color, one race, one kind of music, one kind of cuisine, etc. Who wants to eat Cheerios every day for a thousand years? Do you see my thoughts?

    Heaven, my friends, is going to be FUN!!

    Wrap your head around that ok.

    Study what God likes.

    Which son of Noah is responsible for the black race? Was it a curse put on him?
  • Was Noah39s Son HAM Black and Cursed - in Reply on James 1:2
    Cain was cursed. Not Noah or his sons.

    Sons of Noah: Shem, Ham and Japheth

    The Genesis flood narrative tells how Noah and his three sons Shem, Ham, and Japheth, together with their wives, were saved from the Deluge to repopulate the Earth. ... In chapter 11 verses 10-26 a second list of descendants of Shem names Abraham and thus the Israelites (Jesus).

    In the Book of Jubilees (160-150 BC) the names of the wives of Noah, Shem, Ham and Japheth are as follows:

    * Wife of NOAH - Emzara.

    * Wife of Shem - Sedeqetelebab.

    * Wife of Ham - Na'eltama'uk.

    * Wife of Japheth - Adataneses.

    In the Biblical view, the listed children of Japheth, Shem and Ham (allegedly) correspond to various historic nations and peoples. In the typical interpretation, these sons of Noah correspond to three races: European, Semitic, and African. Alternate divisions claim Euro-Asian Japhet, Semitic Shem, and Afro-Asian Ham.

    The Genesis Rabba midrash lists Naamah, the daughter of Lamech and sister of Tubal-Cain, as the wife of Noah, as does the 11th-century Jewish commentator Rashi in his commentary on Genesis 4:22.

    In the medieval midrash Parry, J. H. (ed.). "5:15". Book of Jasher. Translated by Moses, Samuel., the name of Noah's wife is said to be Naamah, daughter of Enoch.

    Since the 17th century a number of suggestions have been made that relate the name Ham to a Hebrew word for "burnt", "black" or "hot", to the Egyptian word m for "servant" or the word m for "majesty" or the Egyptian word kmt for "Egypt".[4] A 2004 review of David Goldenberg's The Curse of Ham: Race and Slavery in Early Judaism, Christianity and Islam (2003) states that Goldenberg "argues persuasively that the biblical name Ham bears no relationship at all to the notion of blackness and as of now is of UNKNOWN (color) etymology.

    You asked, now you can do some googling on where Ham lived and why people think he was black? I think he was dark because of the sun exposure; he lived in Egypt.

  • MANKIND CAME FROM DUST - in Reply on James 1:2
    Back in Genesis chapter 1, God formed Adam from DUST. Eve was taken from Adams rib, and God made Woman.

    All colors of people's came from DUST!!!

    From the beginning until the End.

    If people are HELL BENT on persecuting NON-WHITE people....

    No matter how many times they get baptized in water, they will still be the COLOR they got from the DUST.

    What people need is to be Baptised into Jesus Christ so their MINDS can be renewed!!

    It has been scientifically PROVEN that all colors are in dust. White people came from a colorless piece of dust. You ever find totally white dust/dirt in a flower bed???

    Guess What!? God is Spirit. The Holy Ghost is Spirit. THEY ARE NOT WHITE!!!!

    They are Spirit.

    How can you go around Hating People that are a different color of DUST?? It does not compute. I say that if dust is a problem with your perceptions..... you are NOT born again....YET.

    It is entirely possible that people in Heaven are the color of dust. What are you going to do then? Heaven is decked out in all kinds of jewels, every kind and every color: rubies, sapphires, amethyst, jade, ONYX, etc.

    Looks to ME, like, God Loves Colors.

    HATE is not of God.

    God is LOVE.

    The Holy Spirit gifts you for ministry.

    "There are different kinds of SPIRITUAL GIFTS, but the same Spirit is the source of them all.

    There are different kinds of SERVICE, but we serve the same Lord. God works in different ways, but it is the same God who does the work in all of us.

    A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other. To one person the Spirit gives the ability to give wise advice;

    to another the same Spirit gives a message of special knowledge.

    The same Spirit gives great faith to another,

    and to someone else the one Spirit gives the gift of healing.

    He gives one person the power to perform miracles,

    and another the ability to prophesy.

    He gives someone else the ability to discern whether a message is from the Spirit of God or from another spirit.

    Still another person is given the ability to speak in unknown languages,

    while another is given the ability to interpret what is being said.

    It is the one and only Spirit who distributes all these gifts. He alone decides which gift each person should have," 1 Corinthians 12:4-11.

    The Holy Spirit imparts to believers gifts that are needed in the Church. Nobody receives all gifts but they are distributed among the Body of Christ, each person receiving different gifts.

    The gift(s) that you receive will empower you for the calling God has placed on your life. Embrace what God has put inside of you and be His instrument for Kingdom purpose!

    Additional passages of the gifts of the Spirit can be found in Ephesians 4 and Romans 12. Ask the Holy Spirit to teach and equip you.
