THE GENERAL EPISTLE OF JAMES

CHAPTER 5


SWEAR NOT AT ALL

SWEAR NOT AT ALL STUDY ON SWEAR NOT AT ALL VERSE WITH SWEAR NOT AT ALL MESSAGE ON SWEAR NOT AT ALL TRUTH


          Welcome once again to Daily Bread. This is the last chapter in the letter from James, and when we closed last time, James was directing his message to people who follow their earthly desires. Letís continue now.

          Come now, you rich men, mourn for the misery that awaits you. Your riches are corrupted and your clothes are moth-eaten. Your gold and silver is corroded and the rust from them will be a witness against you, and will eat your flesh as it were fire. You have heaped treasure together for the last days.

Matthew 6:19-20
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal ...

          Listen! You hold back the pay of workers in your fields and they cry into the ears of the Lord. Youíve lived in pleasure on the earth, and have been extravagant. Youíve fattened your hearts like in a day of slaughter. Youíve condemned and killed the just (righteous) man, and he doesnít resist you.

          You can see that James is writing to many different people in this letter. He switches from the faithful to the faithless and back again. Perhaps he may even be addressing everyone, knowing that weíre all different at different times, and weíre all subject to spirits, it just depends on what spirit weíre allowing for that day, hour or moment. Maybe if the phrase was popular back then, James might have said, If the shoe fits ...  Slap that rascal on. Then heíd say, What are you thinking? Take that shoe off and walk in the Lordís shoes! Okay, back to our letter.

          Be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. Notice the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, through the early and latter rains. Be patient yourselves. Strengthen your hearts, because the coming of the Lord draws near.

          Stop complaining about each other, or youíll be condemned too. Know that the judge stands at the door (God is watching you always).

SWEAR NOT AT ALL LESSON WITH SWEAR NOT AT ALL EXPLANATION

          Use the prophets who have spoken in the name of the Lord for an example of suffering affliction (enduring troubles) and of patience. See, we consider those who endure, blessed. Youíve heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end (the final response) of the Lord, that the Lord is very compassionate and of tender mercy. GRACE

          James wants us to relate this to our own lives. He knows that so many times, those trials that he was talking about a few chapters ago, will cause many to grow impatient and to want to abandon their Faith because it seems too difficult and seems like the time is never gonna get here. But look, he says, you respect the prophets and Job for their patience and youíve seen the rewards that the Lord has bestowed on them for it. Carry on! Be strong! Walk the walk!

          But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, nor by earth, nor by any other oath (promise), but let your yes be yes, and your no be no, or you might fall into judgment.

Matthew 5:34-37
But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne: Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King. Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black. But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.

          Many believe that "swear not" means that we are not to curse, but it really means we are not to swear like they do in court rooms when they say "Do you swear to tell the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth so help you God" ... Then he says to just say yes or no, nothing else. A good reason not to do this is we oft times get a lil excited and want to show someone how serious we are and we make such a vow and cannot keep it.  This causes boggles. This goes with making vows to the Lord as well.

          Are any of you troubled? Let him pray. Are any joyful? Let him sing praises! Are any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of Faith shall heal the sick, and the Lord will raise him up, and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

SWEAR NOT AT ALL INFORMATION WITH SWEAR NOT AT ALL MEANING

          Confess your faults to each other, and pray for each other that you may be healed. The impassioned prayer of a righteous man, profits much. Elijah was a man subject to the same emotions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain. And it didnít rain on the earth for 3 Ĺ years! And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.

          Sincere, impassioned, earnest, effectual ... This is the kind of prayer we should give to God, through Jesus Christ. The feeling that you put into your prayer, is how it is received. God knows if youíre half-hearted or if youíre asking or praising Him with your whole heart.

          Brethren, if any of you stray from the TRUTH, and someone turns him back, let him know, that he who brings back the sinner from the error of his way, shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins. Just think about that for a second. Weíve all done things that we cringe about when we think of standing before God on Judgment Day, speechless, when He asks us about them.  James says that if you bring one of Godís lost children back to Him, a multitude of your sins will be erased! How much is a multitude? It sounds like a lot!

          Well, thatís how James concludes his letter, and what can we conclude from it? Faith is born out of love, and love inspires us to act. We shouldn't do things (works) because weíre afraid of God, we do them because we love Him. Thatís what He meant when He said He would put His law in our hearts. You donít keep from sinning because itís against Godís law, you do it because you love God.

          Faith perseveres through trials. Faith wonít allow us to consent to our desires and slide into sin. In Faith there is no doubt or favoritism. Through faith you can have wisdom, and control of yourself. Your Faith can help you separate yourself from the world and become submissive to God. Faith is patient. As you can see, Faith is a powerful thing, akin to love.

          Congratulations to you on completing this study of The General Epistle of James. I look forward to next time when we begin our study of The First Epistle of Peter. Come on back and share it with me soon, right here, at Daily Bread.
