A FAITH THAT PROCLAIMS
James 5:1 & 6
Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery
that is coming upon you. You have condemned and murdered
innocent men, who were not opposing you.
If you will, take your Bibles and turn to James chapter 5. As I
come on the homestretch, whatever that means to you, about
getting through the Book of James, we've come down to the very
last twenty verses and they break themselves down into about

title the very first six verses, "A Faith that Proclaims", or "A
Faith that Speaks." We'll look at that very clearly. Then in
verses 7-12, we will look at in the next several weeks "A Faith
that Perseveres", it endures all kinds of things; it continues
to keep on keeping on. Then in the last several verses, 13-20,
we will end with that section that you can call, "A Faith that
Prays." We'll talk about faith praying, how to get your prayers
answered. So tonight let's continue on by looking at the first
six verses of James chapter 5.

church based on an invitation into these walls; but would be
open for a men's deal in a very neutral location. So we're
doing a breakfast that has been underwritten and sponsored by
the men who are sponsoring these tables to invite their friends
