Warning to the Rich

5Look here, you rich people: Weep and groan with anguish because of all the terrible troubles ahead of you.G33G3568G4145G2799G3649G1909G5216G5004G1904 2Your wealth is rotting away, and your fine clothes are moth-eaten rags.G5216G4149G4595G2532G5216G2440G1096G4598 3Your gold and silver have become worthless. The very wealth you were counting on will eat away your flesh like fire. This treasure you have accumulated will stand as evidence against you on the day of judgment.G5216G5557G2532G696G2728G2532G2447G846G2071G3142G1519G5213G2532G5315G5216G4561G5613G4442G2343G1722G2078G2250 4For listen! Hear the cries of the field workers whom you have cheated of their pay. The wages you held back cry out against you. The cries of those who harvest your fields have reached the ears of the LORD of Heaven's Armies.G2400G3408G2040G3588G270G5216G5561G3588G575G5216G650G2896G2532G995G2325G1525G1519G3775G2962G4519 5You have spent your years on earth in luxury, satisfying your every desire. You have fattened yourselves for the day of slaughter.G5171G1909G1093G2532G4684G5142G5216G2588G5613G1722G2250G4967 6You have condemned and killed innocent people, who do not resist you.G2613G5407G1342G498G3756G498G5213

Patience and Endurance

7Dear brothers and sisters, be patient as you wait for the Lord's return. Consider the farmers who patiently wait for the rains in the fall and in the spring. They eagerly look for the valuable harvest to ripen.G3114G3767G80G2193G3952G2962G2400G1092G1551G5093G2590G1093G3114G1909G846G2193G302G2983G4406G2532G3797G5205 8You, too, must be patient. Take courage, for the coming of the Lord is near.G3114G5210G2532G3114G4741G5216G2588G3754G3952G2962G1448 9Don't grumble about each other, brothers and sisters, or you will be judged. For look - the Judge is standing at the door!G4727G3361G2596G240G80G3363G2632G2400G2923G2476G4253G2374 10For examples of patience in suffering, dear brothers and sisters, look at the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord.G2983G3450G80G4396G3739G2980G3686G2962G5262G2552G2532G3115 11We give great honor to those who endure under suffering. For instance, you know about Job, a man of great endurance. You can see how the Lord was kind to him at the end, for the Lord is full of tenderness and mercy.G2400G3106G5278G191G5281G2492G2532G1492G5056G2962G3754G2962G2076G4184G2532G3629 12But most of all, my brothers and sisters, never take an oath, by heaven or earth or anything else. Just say a simple yes or no, so that you will not sin and be condemned.G1161G4253G3956G3450G80G3660G3361G3383G3772G3383G1093G3383G5100G243G3727G1161G2277G5216G3483G2277G3483G2532G3756G3756G3363G4098G1519G5272

The Power of Prayer

13Are any of you suffering hardships? You should pray. Are any of you happy? You should sing praises.G2553G5100G1722G5213G2553G4336G2114G5100G2114G5567 14Are any of you sick? You should call for the elders of the church to come and pray over you, anointing you with oil in the name of the Lord.G770G5100G770G1722G5213G4341G4245G1577G2532G4336G1909G846G218G846G1637G1722G3686G2962 15Such a prayer offered in faith will heal the sick, and the Lord will make you well. And if you have committed any sins, you will be forgiven.G2532G2171G4102G4982G2577G2532G2962G1453G846G1453G2579G5600G4160G266G863G846 16Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.G1843G3900G240G2532G2172G240G5228G240G3704G2390G1754G1162G1342G2480G4183 17Elijah was as human as we are, and yet when he prayed earnestly that no rain would fall, none fell for three and a half years!G2243G2258G444G3663G2254G2532G4336G4335G1026G3361G1026G2532G1026G3756G1909G1093G5140G1763G2532G1803G3376 18Then, when he prayed again, the sky sent down rain and the earth began to yield its crops.G2532G4336G3825G2532G3772G1325G5205G2532G1093G985G846G2590

Restore Wandering Believers

19My dear brothers and sisters, if someone among you wanders away from the truth and is brought back,G80G1437G5100G1722G5213G4105G575G225G2532G5100G1994G846 20you can be sure that whoever brings the sinner back will save that person from death and bring about the forgiveness of many sins.G1097G846G1097G3754G1994G268G1537G4106G846G3598G4982G5590G1537G2288G2532G2572G4128G266
