    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]The wisdom from above is first[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] of all chaste, then peaceable.[/FONT] —[FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]Jas. 3:17.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]
    Being peaceable is secondary
    [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] to chasteness, that is, upholding[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] God’s clean moral standards and[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]meeting his righteous requirements.[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] One account involving[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] Jehu shows that God’s righteousness[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]takes priority over peaceableness.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]
    God sent Jehu to execute
    [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] His judgment on the house[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] of King Ahab. Wicked King Jehoram,[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]the son of Ahab and Jezebel,[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] rode in his chariot to meet[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] Jehu and said:[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] “Is there peace,[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]Jehu?â€￾ [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]Jehu replied: [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]“What peace could there be as long as there[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] are the fornications of Jezebel[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]your mother and her many sorceries?â€￾ (2 Ki. 9:22)[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]

    With that,
    [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] Jehu drew his bow and shot Jehoram[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] through the heart. Just[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] as Jehu took action, elders must[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]not compromise with willful, unrepentant[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] practicers of sin for the[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] sake of keeping peace. They expel[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]unrepentant sinners so that[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] the congregation can continue to[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] enjoy peace with God.

  2. Hi All:

    Unless of course those unrepentant acts are perpetrated by the ones at the top of "God's Clean Organization", like being in an adulterous relationship with the U.N. and virtually moving Satan's throne right into the Temple of Jehovah. Unless I missed their outpouring of sorrow and guilt and repentance of this very serious wrong. Did I?

    It is also my contention that the future will bring out that the GB of the JW's has been knowingly operating with one or more (I say the whole lot) non-anointed among their group and as I have already said, "they know it". When you see this abomination causing desolation, flee for the hills. I saw it back in the early part of the Centuries turn and admit that it took me a couple years of research to be sure of my conclusion. When you "see" it, don't hesitate, move. The act has already happened and is in progress as we speak, and nothing hidden will remain that way forever. Hypocrites, to allow a text like today's with your track record. You should be ashamed of yourselves, but I know that by now you are not capable of shame. Hebrews 6:4-6. When person's become "hardened" in sin, they have a very difficult time showing any form of repentance, as they become more like their Father.

    It looks to me that James 3:13-18 is contrasting divine wisdom with animal and demonic wisdom.

    Verse 13 speaks of those who are "wise and understanding, who display fine conduct, mildness and wisdom."

    Verse 14 speaks of those who are "jealous and contentious."

    Verses 15 and 16 explains that "jealousy and contentiousness" are qualities of "earthly, animal and demonic wisdom."

    Then in verses 17 and 18, there is the contrast with divine wisdom ("wisdom from above") - "chaste, peaceable, reasonable, ready to obey, full of mercy and good fruits, not making partial distinctions, not hypocritical, fruit of righteousness."


    I don't see what the connection is with Jehu - looks like a case of "cherry-picking" the scriptures to me............unless I'm looking funny at the daily text. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong on this.
