About James

James 1:1.James, a servant of God and of the Lord.Emmanuel.Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.

James 1:2 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into divers temptations.(original for 'temptations' is 'trials', 'experiments', the unknown of it all);

James 1:3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith.(trying of your faith, why?).works patience.

James 1:4 But let patience have her perfect work, that you may be perfect and entire, wanting.(lacking).nothing.(*).

James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom.(?), let him ask.(original 'ask', 'desire'; how? your daily dominant thoughts provide your future).of God, that gives to all men liberally and upbraids not and it shall be given him.

James 1:6 But let him ask in faith.(with no doubt in mind you'll get it), nothing wavering.(one wavers when he looks at things negatively and tends.toward.judging his circumstances that way as Peter, one of the disciples did here:.Matthew 14:24-31; when you vacillate in your purposes, you go nowhere:.Matthew 7:14). For he that wavers is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

James 1:7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.

James 1:8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
Also James 4:8; a double minded man as compared to a single minded one; unstableness is one step toward 'unsaneness' and that's one step away from insanity.
James 1:9-11 Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted. But the rich, in that he is made low; because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away. For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withers the grass and the flower thereof falls and the grace of the fashion of it perishes, so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways.

James 1:12 Blessed is the man that endures temptation. For when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord has promised to them that love him.
What is this 'crown of life'?.2Timothy 4:8.
James 1:13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God. For God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempts he any man.
But God can be influenced by us.
James 1:14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust and enticed.
Religion often tells us 'it's the devil, it's the devil', but it's us who first have the thoughts that open a door for more to be pumped to us.
James 1:15 Then when lust has conceived, it brings forth sin and sin when it is finished brings forth death.
James 1:15 Then when lust has conceived, it brings forth sin and sin when it is finished.(original for phrase "when it is finished" is "separates one from God").brings forth death.

Why? Because sin is a missing the mark of what we are on Earth for and any missing the mark that takes us away from that, negates the reason for our existence here and so our lives become spiritually worthless:.Romans 6:23.

James 1:16 Do not err, my beloved brethren.

James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above and comes down from the Father of lights with whom is no shadow of turning.
James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above and comes down from the Father of lights.(light is being in higher consciousness; lights is various levels of high consciousness).with whom is no variableness neither shadow of turning..Because why?

Malachi 3:6 "For I am the LORD, I change not...")

James 1:18 Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
James 1:18 Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth that we should be a kind of.(original is 'a certain type of'; that is individual; God doesn't want clones).firstfruits.(beginning of separation from the ordinary consciousness level).of his creatures.
James 1:19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath.

James 1:20 For the wrath of man works not the righteousness of God.

James 1:21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness.(2Corinthians 7:1).and superfluity of naughtiness and receive with meekness the engrafted.(original 'in you that which produces').word.(Deuteronomy 11:18), which is able to save your souls.

James 1:22-24 But be you doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding.(original is 'considering').his natural.(original is 'generation', that is, he considers the life he has had).face in a glass. For he beholds himself and goes his way and straightway forgets.(doesn't become a doer for changing himself by applying things that came to his mind).what manner of man he has been.
What do you think of yourself when you look in a mirror?
James 1:25 But whoso looks into the perfect law of liberty.(Matthew 22:36-40).and continues therein he being not a forgetful hearer.(not doing what he or she knows they should).but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

James 1:26 If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain.

James 1:27 Pure religion.(original is 'worship').and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit.(original means 'to visit with an eye to look out for; to provide care as needed).the fatherless and widows in their affliction.(any trials and tribulations they may be having).and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
Matthew 25:35-40.
