    JAMES 5:19 BRETHREN IF ANY OF YOU ERR FROM THE TRUTH AND ONE CONVERT HIM --5:20-- let him know that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death and shall hide a multitude of sins --- JAMES 4:17 THEREFORE TO HIM THAT KNOWETH TO DO GOOD AND DOETH IT NOT TO HIM IT IS SIN ---

    Romans Ch 10:9 is as close as it gets to accepting Jesus as savior. Many denominations use this scripture as backup for their "sinners prayer." However you are correct in that to be truly saved is to repent, and be converted. Acts Ch 3:9 that you may hear the voice of the Lord. That you may hear the Truth, and the cure to the deception the devil has sowed on mankind with his lies. Ephesians 6:12

    I LOVE JAMES. IT IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE BOOKS. HUBERT, I DON'T WISH TO ANTAGONIZE YOU BUT THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE SAYING. DOES IT HAVE TO BE IN THE BIBLE TO BE RIGHT? IS NOT ACCEPTING JESUS AS YOUR PERSONAL SAVIOR NOT A GOOD THING? I DO AGREE PEOPLE OFTEN SAY THINGS AS GOSPEL THAT ARE NOT IN THE BIBLE BUT IN THIS CASE I THINK IT IS A GOOD THING.
  • Hubert Guillotte
    So many people say to accept the Lord as your personal savior,,, but I don't see that scripture in the Bible, but I do see where the man that had the keys to the kingdom, to repent and be baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. If it's in the Bible let's say it if it's not in the Bible let's don't say it

    JAMES 5:19 BRETHREN IF ANY OF YOU DO ERR FROM THE TRUTH AND ONE CONVERT HIM --5:20-- let him know that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death and shall hide a multitude of sins 1 TIMOTHY 4:16 take heed unto thyself and unto the doctrine continue in them for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself and them that hear thee

    Its the precious and powerful Truth. We had a 15 year old girl who is a relative of mine who attended our church and she since birth had seizures and the doctors could not figure out the cause or how to stop them. We took her up front one Sunday anointed her with oil and prayed over her and since that day (praise God ) she has never had another one . James 5:14 says to do this. Its 6 yrs later.
  • A disciple
    "...The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much." If we are to have power with God in prayer, we are to walk as the prophets walked, as Elijah and Job walked, in the midst of this present vile generation of greedy and deceitful lovers of self, who make their wealth off the misuse of others. The fire of truth and zeal for God must be in our heart, and we must keep our integrity no matter how painful our earthly losses. Humility maintains a good conscience and holds truth in higher regard than every threat, and sustains us through every accusation of the wicked posing as brothers and friends in the Lord. The husbandman must labor before partaking of the fruits, and we must be proved before being entrusted with power in the world to come. The way of virtue and piety, which is the evidence of grace and the life of faith, is the way we will endure true and faithful to the end.
  • A disciple
    "Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy." Job is a great example of what it means to really know the LORD in this evil world. God's testimony of him from the very beginning was that he was perfect and upright above all others, even when Satan and men accuse and contradict.

    Dear Lord thank you for warnings against our corrupt leaders from Isaiah and even James. We pray for our citizens who put trust in leaders who lie and go against God. We are sorry for our babies killed, crying out from the earth. We are sorry for society pushing you and Jesus out, and inviting false religions to influence us. We are sorry Lord for siding with enemies of Israel. Lord, heal us now.

    I love reading the WORD each and everyday. Yes I'm a KJV 1611 reader The Epistle of James. Faith without works dead.
  • Ann
    Sean, I just said a prayer for you. Keep in the faith, may God bless you. Amen
  • Tamar
    James uses some ensamples for us to follow. Job through his suffering he prayed to God, and God brought him out of tribulations,Elias prayed that it might not rain God didn't send any rain. James also said the fervent prayers of the righteous avails much, we must pray without ceasing God shows pity for when we going through hard times and mercy bringing us out every situation the enemy gets us in.
  • A disciple
    Henrietta; Yes! The Lord Jesus Christ has been given all authority in heaven and on earth; and He has charged us in His name, to proclaim the Glad Tidings to every creature; teaching all men everywhere to keep all His words, everything that He has commanded us; thus also warning the rich that they not foolishly trust in their good things in life, and miss the truth and the word of their salvation.
  • Henrietta
    I see 2 messages: one to the corrupted rich and one to the brethren. The rich will be judged for their fraudulent activities. The brethren are warned to stay pure in heart/ no grudges and to have patience. They are also encouraged to pray earnestly and to pray for the sick to be healed.
    Sin and sickness are linked, but both can be remedied by the blood through prayer.
  • BSP
    Verse 13 encourages us to express our feelings. When going through troubles we should pray and when rejoicing we should sing out joyfully.
  • BSP
    When considering good examples, we should look to the faithful prophets examples as verse 10 encourages us to do.
  • Maria Sanabria
    I also use oil to anointed myself and family but it is the blood of Jesus, that heals us.
  • Sean
    Pray for me if you see this comment. I can use every prayer I can get. Thanks

  • Logan
    I think that the best thing I can say is that we are praying for your son
  • A disciple
    Amen, Bruce, well said. It is a dangerous and evil spirit that tries to creep in among the unlearned, undisciplined and inexperienced Believers; that tells them they are special to the Lord, and His ONLY ONES, out of all Christians, "who got it right!" What inevitably happens with that kind of deception and arrogance, an unclean spirit is working in the hidden to overthrow the leadership with sin.
  • Irene123
    Merlene - Bruce is right - IF the other churches he named do indeed do this. It's your faith in God's healing. Oil should be used, but it's TOTALLY not necessary. I was healed of scoliosis at age 18 in '60 and I had no idea God was real, even tho' I'd heard about him. I th'ot for 10 yrs. I had done the healing - by just walking; then I began learning of HIM. God sees the need, cont.
  • Bruce
    Irene: there are many churches that anoint with oil :Baptist, Alliance, Methodist and others I can't think of their Names. The ones that anoint with oil believe in healing, but not all believe in Salvation as the Scripture says.Only by the Blood of The Lamb: A tug in The Heart,ask forgiveness, Filled by The Spirit:Matthew 3:11 / Made New 2Corinthians 5:17, "You Will Know!"
  • Logan
    Merlene, I am saying that the Bible says, ask and you shall receive, later in the Bible it says for those who are not receiving to examen themelves and what they are asking for. aswell(if it is right)then you also need to believe that it will happen when you ask for it. now God loves you and knows what is best, He says no, yes, or wait, God can and does use all things for His glory and for good.
  • Irene123
    Only an Apostolic, Jesus name (Pentecostal) church will anoint you with oil, and pray with you at the same time. No other churches believe in healing. And as Colossians 3:17 says, do ALL in the name of Jesus. If you want healing, the TITLES of father, son, and holy ghost, won't do it. God's word itself says - Jesus.
  • Felicia
    Merlene We take the word of God at its first value The oil is anointing oil If you do go to church do as the word of God says in verses 14-15 With God everything is possible just approach Him with your heart know that He is and He is the regarder of all those who deligently seek Him I want to boost your faith as you need a miracle It's the will of God to heal us Mark 10:46-52 Matt 8:1-3; 15:21-28
  • Bruce
    Marlene: Oil is that of The Holy Spirit. The Word of God, read a few more verses it's talking about being saved. Yes, I Believe there are Miracles! I read testimonies of other Believers. But not all Believers are healed? He brings Joy to The Saved while in their affliction. Soon it will end. We all will have New Bodies,He will wipe away all tears. No more pain. Forever with No End.Revelation21
