James 4:

Your internal issue causes quarrels and fights among you because you want something you cannot get. You do not have because you refuse to ask God or you ask with the wrong intentions of spending it on worldly desires rather than for God's kingdom (blessing the community)Friendship with the things of the world is living against God and becomes an enemy of God. The Spirit of God is jealous for your friendship instead of your friendship to the world (money, fame, power, and influence).  Submission to God resists the devil and he flees from you.  Do not be double-minded, cleans up your ways in what drives you to live on earth and get closer to God.  Only those who humble themselves to God does God lift up.  Slandering your neighbor is to judge the law, but only God (Jesus) is judge.  To say what you will do tomorrow without asking for God's will or permission is arrogant and boastful because you have no control of your life at this moment.  To boast is evil and disregard for God, and to intentionally do wrong is sinful against God (especially for the sake of an idol, money - promotion, status, & power). 

James 5:

Rich people must weep and wail for the punishment that will befall them.  Their wealth, clothes, money, and flesh that have been enhanced for their last days will become meaningless (the wealth of the rich eventually wears them out with stress and frustration). Every penny stolen from the poor or not given because of your unjust laws, judges, and politicians testifies against the rich to God.  For the sake of selfish ambition for financial gain, you intentionally condemn and murder to poor and powerless (blacks) and therefore are fattening yourselves for slaughter (people have suffered severely for slavery and apartheid, but we do not see it because they have money). Be patient for God's return like a farmer waiting for his harvest and do not argue among yourself because God is here.  Learn from the prophets and Job (Mandela) on perseverance and have faith in God's mercy and compassion.  Never swear, but speak only truth to avoid judgment.  Prayer of the righteous is powerful and potent. Pray when in trouble, sing praises if happy, anoint in oil in God's name if sick, and prayer in faith does heal the sick.  Making a sinner to return to God save him from death, and multiple sins are covered for the one with the good deed.

1 Peter 1:

Christians are God's elect and strangers in a world controlled by Satan and the rich (satanic agents), who use unjust laws to intentionally keep people poor in order for the poor masses to spend most of their valuable time and energy away from God in search for survivalDo we pay our workers well? Do we use unjust laws to keep the poor from competing in business? Do we VOTE in politicians that would justify wars for cheaper resources in order to keep distance nations poor and disorganized? Praise God for giving us the race to be saved through the blood of Christ for a heavenly inheritance that will never perish. Rejoice in your earthly trials (holding on to God's expectations regardless of earthly consequences or setbacks in money, title, or promotions) in exchange for a faith in God that is greater than perishable gold.  You get the goal of your faith and salvation of your soul for the love and belief in Jesus.  The prophets search for the salvation and the Spirit of Christ for understanding, but was revealed to us in the preaching of Jesus' gospel.  Stay away from evil, love of money, and the empty ways of life of your world in favor of Jesus.  Obey God's truth, love each other, and focus on the imperishable.
