The tongue can no man tame!

My  dear friend, Apostle James says surely this is not right;

That a fountain should pour out of the same place sweet water and bitter water, "no fountain both yield salt water and fresh" James 3:12.

People got to know who you really are, be a spring that bubble out only fresh water. Live a life of steady goodness so that only good deeds will pour forth. Surely this is not right, that "out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren" James 3:10.

Again he says;

"Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace" James 3:13-18.

If you are wise, first live a life of steady goodness so that only good deeds will pour forth. Secondly, never brag about your good deeds, for "This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish" James 3:15. 

Most people don’t know how disastrous it is to have the wisdom of this world; it is ungodly, it "is earthly, sensual, devilish" James 3:15. "But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison" James 3:8. What it knows is selfishness, envy, bitterness and confusion or wars.

"But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy." James 3:17. It is full of mercy and good deeds. It is wholehearted and straightforward and sincere. I like also the last verse; "And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace" James 3:18. Hallelujah!

Those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace, will pour out sweet water, command a good conversation, and reap a harvest of goodness. James 3:2 says, “If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body."

The gospel of Christ!

The gospel of God, is that which pertains to His Son Jesus Christ, through him we have received grace and apostleship, to bring about the obedience of faith to all.

Our service is rendered to God, whom we serve by our spirits telling the good news about his Son.

Preaching the gospel is all manner of witnessing and imparting spiritual gifts on God’s people, the believers, the called of Jesus Christ, who are called to be saints. That method of believing is called faith, and mutual faith when we together believe.

"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith" Romans 1:16-17.

The gospel of God is that which concerns His Son. God can be known only through the gospel of Christ, and that which may be known of God has now been made manifest in us; for God r…

Partakers of Christ's sufferings!

"Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy" 1 Peter 4:12-13

It is no shame to suffer for being a Christian, instead it is a privilege, folks. For "if ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye ; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified" 1 Peter 4:14.

Suffer according to God's will, not "as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters" 1 Peter 4:15.  But do what is right folks, and trust yourself to God who made you, for he will never fail you.

"The end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer. And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: …

Your kingdom come!

One of the disciples said to Jesus, "Lord, teach us to pray," and he said, "When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth" Luke 11:2.

"...Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven..." You find this in the King James Version, some other translations don’t have this, and you can understand why from scripture.

After resurrection the disciples came together and asked Jesus "Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth" Acts 1:6-8.

The Holy Ghost came to give us who believe an experience of "things pertaining to the ki…
