    Thank God for grace and mercy
  • MockingBird on James 5:16 - 8 years ago
    Find one in your body of believers that you can depend upon : To trust in you confiding of your faults : to help you overcome : to be able to give an account of your progress To confess to if you have wronged them and to get it right before each other so that your prayers be not hindered and have that free flow to God. I do not believe that I am to confess every sin to my fellow believers :
  • Terri on James 5:16 - 8 years ago
    Prayer is the up lifting of all sins we need to confess our sins to our lord and ask the persons we offended forgiveness if we want to move on and have eternal life and freedom to serve the Lord without any condemning yourself to eternal damnation
  • Jim on James 5:20 - 8 years ago
    Verses 19 and 20 will always be special because I was trying to just work and survive,but I was wrong not to have God and church in my life,accomplishments are great if you have God with you
  • Moddy on James 5 - 8 years ago
    Walk the talk. Chapter 5 demands practical things, faithfulness to the labourers, walking straight and trusting in God.
  • R. Simpson on James 5 - 9 years ago
    To Insight 777 's comment,rain in the context has nothing to do with your comment but uses the illustration of a man that had faith and what he did with it. Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. Context and doctrine is not everything but it is if you to clearly understand the Bible. "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not and it shall be given him. James 1:5 God bless my friend.

    The fifth chapter of the book of James covers a lot of areas for the believers some of the things in particular deals with daddy believers labors have been mised used and money has been kept back from the righteous of labors of people. And some people have put their trust in their gold and silver their finances their bank account . And some of us have became sick depressed and stressed out. But we must trust him and lean on him and knowledge and trust him Proverbs 3: 5,6,7 verse read it is a war with n us an WW3 to come.
  • Insight 777 on James 5 - 9 years ago
    Verse 17, Rain requires certain things... heat, water and air circulation. For it not to rain on the earth, since the earth has oceans, then there has to be no heat. What will occur for the entire earth to have no rain is a complete world ice age. This may be Elias prophecy for a nuclear ice age at the end of time. Or the word rain is symbolic and means the loss of an element needed for survival. This could be the loss of belief in Jesus as Savior. I think here rain is symbolic perhaps representing the last 3.5 years of the tribulation which will be a time of conflict before Jesus returns to end it. There could be a nuclear ice age as a result of WW3 that signals Jesus to return to earth to save the Christians that are still alive at that time. Man as a specie will not survive a nuclear ice age, it is an end of days event.
  • Peter on James 5 - 9 years ago
    The devil and his band believes and trembles n still does evil. How different are we if we believe and do nothing? Overcoming of trials gives us rewards of remaining faithful in HIM who calls us.
  • Niaquese on James 5:1 - 9 years ago
    This is so helpful to me
  • Tony P. on James 5:16 - 9 years ago
    Most people commenting on this verse fail to recognize the most fundamental premise of Biblical study application, and that is to "rightly divide the word of truth " per 2 Timothy 2:15. The Epistle Of James could not, for the most part, doctrinally apply to Christians in this present age of grace, because it implies salvation either by works or validated by them. It actually fits in better applied to believers in The Tribulation, see Revelation 12:17, 14 12 especially since it is addressed to Jewish believers, James 1:1. We find no where in the 13 certain Pauline Epistles, excluding Hebrews to appease those who have certain doubts, Paul The Apostle Of The Gentiles, see Romans 11:13, instructing us to anoint anyone for any reason. But I suppose if we were to grant that we could should anoint the sick, we should first observe a time of self examination, confession of personal faults these would be areas of inclined weaknesses, NOT SINS , and of course fervent effectual prayer. The only prayer that will save a lost Hell-bound sinner, is the one were he she admits their pitiful condition, and by faith receives The Lord Jesus Christ as their own personal Saviour. It has two distinct sides, repentance towards God for what you are and have done, and then faith in The Lord Jesus Christ for who He is and what He has done! See Acts 20:21. God speed.
  • Jared on James 5:14 - 9 years ago
    I have heard from an elder that when asked to do this that someimes God has revealed sin as the culprit while other times God has healed.
  • Dewey on James 5 - 9 years ago
    LaVerne,here are a few Scriptures on healing. Je. 30:13-Matt.4:23-Lu.9:6-Acts10:38 and I am sure you just read this chapter 5 in Ja. 5:14,15. Noting the pray of faith and anointing the sick with oil or olive oil signifying the Holy Ghost who actually perform the healing through men.
  • John on James 5 - 9 years ago
    Dear LaVerne. I don 't think I would qualify as a church elder but I sure will pray for you! May God enable you to heal and stay strong in faith, in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen!
  • Donald Foster on James 5 - 9 years ago
    good book
  • JIm on James 5:3 - 9 years ago
    In the last days gold and silver will be absolutely worthless as the mark of the beast totally controls all financial assets. These things that have always had a price in the past will be nothing but a burden under Antichrist for everyone living on this earth...they will be able to sit on it while they starve to death.
  • Tosin on James 5:17 - 9 years ago
    Elijah was a man like us subject to temptation,but I strongly believe that he did not yield to the temptation of sin. The same Elijah said Scripture says 2 Kings 5:16. But he said, As the LORD lives, before whom I stand..... So, I would rather say that Elijah was a man like us, faced with the same temptations that we face, but was a man who gave himself to personal fellowship and communion with God. He had a right standing with God so he could decree things and have it established.

  • Simon Soh on James 5 - 9 years ago
    Everyone needs to swear when attending court because it is the law. It doesn 't mean that Christian need not swear. Please read Romans 13:1-7. Thanks
  • Timothy on James 5:12 - 9 years ago
    Interesting... Does this mean that Christians do not have to swear on the Bible when summoned to appear before court?
  • Stan hilton on James 5:16 - 9 years ago
    the way i see it,allow me to be straight to the point there are many christians who would not dare go there.they want to appear they have it all together pure and righteous or they would not want a fellow brother or sister in Christ to know their garbage.a lack of trust in the body of Christ is one of the biggest problems in the Church of today.remember Christ came for the sinner,not the righteous.i would love to see us practice literally James 5 16.revival would happen !
  • Kenneth Owusu on James 5:16 - 9 years ago
    There 's this simile "As ugly as sin ". But as ugly as our sins or faults may look, God wants us to unburden them to one another so as to be remembered in prayer by our brethren. There are a lot of Christians who could have half solved their challenge of sin by just confessing sharing to one another, but their problem is that they can 't trust their brethren with their secrets, weakness and shortcomings. If only their confessed sins, shortcomings and weakness will remain a prayer topic other than an information for distribution, believers would overcome their sins faults and sickness easily because " the fervent effectual prayer of intercessors is powerful and effective to produce wonderful result " So anytime you hear of a brethren 's sin fault sickness, weakness do not thank God that you 're not like that brethren Luke 18 11 12 but interceed for for him.
  • John Smalley on James 5 - 9 years ago
    The book of James is showing me how to live in a world full of troubles I am in a 12 step program that teaches this.
  • Clinton on James 5:14 - 9 years ago
    God word is plain and simple to understand.He do not speak in riddles,He speaks so you will understand, yet there are those that try to add to His word or change it to their way of thinking.Where is your faith ?

    It gives hope to the sick and assurance that God hears prayers and being happy is acceptable for Christians

  • Relebogile lekhema on James 5 - 9 years ago
    my believe is that whenever you pray to GOD everything is already done for you as promised in the book of John 14v12 14 and only faith and believe works.
