Lust for Power-Part two

James 2:14-26

14What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?15If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,16And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?17Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.18Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.19Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.20But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?21Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?22Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?23And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.24Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.25Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?26For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

John 6:28-29

28Then said they unto him,

What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?

29Jesus answered and said unto them,

This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

Here we have a major contention

between Jesus written about in the Gospel of John

and the book of James!

James boastingly says says you have to prove your faith by your works!

Jesus (in the Gospel of John) says believing is the work and does not add that faith is made perfect by works because obviously faith is the work!


By the way, how does James know what the devils believe? Or for that matter who the devils believe? Is James an expert on devil knowledge?

Who wrote the book of James?

Was it a disciple?

It was written by James, the half-brother of Jesus (according to the earliest sources). James was martyred in 62 AD.

Galatians 1:19 & 2:9

BTW: There were two disciples named “James”:

1) James (the son of Zebedee) and brother of the disciple John.
1) James (the son of Alphaeus) who was the brother of Matthew (who was also known as Levi).
Galatians 1:19
19But other of the apostles saw I none, save James the Lord’s brother.
Galatians 2:9
9And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision.

John 19:30
When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

James 1:15
Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

I wonder why James…….the supposed “brother of Jesus or disciple of Jesus” would use the phrase

It is finished

when speaking of lust…..sin…….bringing forth death. The same phrase that the Gospel of John says that were the last words Jesus said when he was crucified.

IT is as if James is saying that lust……sin…….

brought forth the death of Jesus

by his own character!!!


BTW I did a check on the phrase“It is finished” in the online bible (KJV) and it is

ONLY USED ON TWO OCCASIONS! That is pretty coincidental and very rare that this exact phrase is used only two times in the bible!

Please follow the link: IT IS FINISHED

Also, you should note that the above article says that James was martyred in the year of 62 and yet he conveniently refers to the phrase “It is finished” in opposition to the teaching of Jesus in the Gospel of John.

Matthew 13:55
Is not this the carpenter’s son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?

Acts 4:36
And Joses, who by the apostles was surnamed Barnabas, (which is, being interpreted, The son of consolation,) a Levite, and of the country of Cyprus,


Nero Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus (15 December AD 37 – 9 June AD 68),

[1] born Lucius Domitius Ahenobarbus

Whose apostles surnamed Joses to Barnabus? Which Jesus?

Luke wrote Acts and the gospel of Luke, but just about everything in the gospel of Luke is antithetical to the gospel of John. Why?

Yet in the book of Zechariah it is the four Carpenter’s who scatter the sheep so that no man did lift up his head.

I am assuming Zechariah means THE ROMAN IRON GRIP on mankind!

Zechariah 1:18-21

18Then lifted I up mine eyes, and saw, and behold four horns.

19And I said unto the angel that talked with me, What be these? And he answered me, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem.

20And the LORD shewed me four carpenters.

21Then said I, What come these to do? And he spake, saying, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, so that no man did lift up his head:

The Brethren of Jesus did not believe in Him as stated in the gospel of John.

James did not believe in Him!

James is one of the 4 carpenters i,e. one of the horns spoken of in the book of Zechariah!

James is the brother of Barnabus (Joses)!
