Why James317?

Many people ask why james317.org? First, have a read through of James 3:17.

James 3:17 But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.

This verse came through a miracle prayer session. We had just finished special prayers focused on seeking God’s wisdom, when returning to the Bible, a small piece of scripture fell out. It was just a small top corner. We looked through the pages to see where it had come from and could find no missing parts.

You’d think, you could easily find a torn page. Then we realized the book and chapter were listed at the top of the piece. It was to the end of James 3, top of James 4. We opened the Bible to that passage and were surprised to find the Bible completely intact. No missing part on the page. And there it was. We had been praying for wisdom and scripture fell out of the sky, literally, which described wisdom from heaven. Wisdom was on that little piece of paper and described.

We still have that little piece of scripture. The Bible has been passed along to a friend. Actually, that night I put the piece of scripture away carefully. When I woke up the next day, I was not sure if I would find it or not; such was my state at the time.

Maybe you wouldn’t call that miraculous. To us, who already felt the presence of God with us, it was confirmation we were on the right track and james317.org was born.
