James 1:2 (KJV)

2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;

VERY BRIEFLY I WANT TO REASON WITH YOU ON THE THOUGHT

(THE DANGER OF BAD MATHEMATIC)

MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS

MATHEMATICS IS BEST DEFINED AS THE SYSTEMATIC TREATMENT OF MAGNITUDE

THAT IS EXPRESS IN BOTH SIGNS AND SYMBOLS THAT EXISTS IN FOUR BASIC FORMS

THESES FORMS ARE ADDITION ,SUBTRACTION ,MULTIPLICATION AND DIVISION

AND MATHEMATICIAN CALLS IT MATHEMATIC -----

BUT WE CALL IT MATH FOR SHORT

2ND GRADERS USE IT ON TEST THAT TELLS THEM TO ADD 2 +5 IN ORDER TO GET 7

WHILE AT THE SAME TIME NUCLEAR PHYSICIST USES IT TO PUT SATELLITES INTO OUTER SPACE

BUT IT`S THROUGH OBSERVATION

THAT THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO HAS A PROBLEM WITH MATHEMATIC

IS THE BLOOD BOUGHT SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD

YOU SEE WE CAN ADD AN SUBTRACT WHEN OUR CHECKS ARE`NT RIGHT

WE CAN COUNT WHEN WE HAVE BEEN OVERCHARGED ON A BILL

WE CAN COUNT WHEN WE THINK WE GOT SHORT CHANGED

AND WE SHOW CAN COUNT WHEN IT COMES TO PUTTING MONEY IN THE CHURCH COLLECTION PLATE

BUT IT SEEMS THAT SOME OF US HAVE A BAD PROBLEM WITH MATHEMATIC

AND THE REASON WHY IS BECAUSE

WHEN PROBLEMS OR ADVERSITY SHOWS UP WE TEND TO PANIC AND FORGET TO PRAY

OR BETTER YET

DURING THE PASSING OF A LOVE ONE

WE BECOME SO BROKEN THAT WE THINK WE CAN`T MOVE ON

YOU SEE MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS

BAD MATHEMATIC IS WHEN YOU HAVE BEEN HELP BY GOD

MORE THAN YOU CAN COUNT

AND YET THE MOMENT OF HARDSHIP –

WE ACT AS IF GOD HAS NEVER BROUGHT US OUT OF ANYTHING BEFORE

BUT IN THE TEXT BEFORE US JAMES TEACHES US ABOUT THE DANGER OF BAD MATHEMATIC

***********************************

WELL THE 1ST THING HE TEACHES US ABOUT REPAIRING BAD MATHEMATIC

IS THAT WE CAN`T LOOK AT OUR PROBLEMS AS A LIBILITY

BUT WE MUST LOOK AT THEM AS A BLESSING

NOTICE WHAT JAMES SAYS

(COUNT)

YOU SEE MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS

WE TEND TO FOCUS MORE ON WHAT WE ARE GOING THROUGH

THAN THE ONE WHO CAN BRING US THROUGH WHAT EVER WE ARE GOING THROUGH

FOR HE SAYS WE ARE TO COUNT IT ALL JOY

THE WORD COUNT IS A VERY POWERFUL AND CHALLENGING WORD

IT`S A COMMAND BECAUSE JOY IS NOT THE NATURAL RESPONSE TO TROUBLE

BUT COUNT MEANS –

TO BE A LEADER ,

TO HAVE AUTHORITY OVER,

TO CONSIDER OR COUNT

IT`S SOMETHING WE DO FOR OURSELVES

AND JAMES CHALLENGES US

THAT WHEN PROBLEMS PULL UP IN OUR DRIVEWAY

WHEN TROUBLE SHOWS UP UN-ANNOUNCE

WE OUGHT NOT LOOK AT IT AS A LIBILITY

BUT AS A PRIVILEGE THAT WILL BLESS US AND NOT HURT US

***********************************

BUT NOT ONLY DO WE HAVE TO NOT LOOK AT PROBLEMS AS A LIBILITY BUT A BLESSING

BUT THE TEXT ALSO REVEALS THAT WE HAVE TO ADD SOME DIVINE SPIRITUAL ARITHMETIC TO OUR PROBLEM TO

GET THE RIGHT EQUATION FOR OUR ANSWER

JAMES REVEALS THAT IN ORDER TO GET THE RIGHT EQUATION

WE HAVE TO COUNT IT ALL JOY

YOU SEE MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS

(JOY) IS SIMPLY PEACE UNDER PRESSURE

AND JAMES SAYS (COUNT IT ALL JOY)

AND THESE 4 WORDS IS CALL AN IDIOMA

AND A IDIOMA IS 2 CLAUSES WHERE THE POSITIVE OUTCOME DEPENDS ON THE NEGATIVE INCOME

IN THE TEXT

THE NEGATIVE SAYS (COUNT IT)

AND THE POSITIVE SAYS (ALL JOY)

IN OTHER WORDS IF YOU WANT JOY YOU MUST COUNT IT
