Mon 091102 pm James 1 Isa 60

James 1
1.2 the testing of your faith...  It seems to me as I read this that the "testing of your faith", might be more than just regular hard times.
1.11  in the midst of his pursuits...  He fades away in to insignificance as he goes about his business, not by some big calamity.  A sobering thought.  Are you just fading away or securing heavenly interests?
1.17  Father of lights...
1.19  slow to speak...  Something I am always working on.  :o)
1.21  receive with meekness... a necessary trait if God's Word is going to do its work in us.
1.27  Religion that is pure and undefiled before God...  That who we should be concerned about.

Isaiah 59

Isaiah 60
60. 7  Kedar  2.It is the name for the nomadic tribes of Arabs, the Bedouins generally (Isa. 21:16; 42:11; 60:7; Jer. 2:10; Ezek. 27:21), who dwelt in the northwest of Arabia. They lived in black hair-tents (Song of Songs 1:5). To “dwell in the tents of Kedar” was to be cut off from the worship of the true God (Ps. 120:5). The Kedarites suffered at the hands of Nebuchadnezzar (Jer. 49:28, 29).
60. 7  Nebaioth  The name of the Ishmaelite tribe descended from the above (Gen. 25:13,18). The “rams of Nebaioth” (Isa. 60:7) are the gifts which these wandering tribes of the desert would consecrate to God.
