HIDE A MULTITUDE OF SINS


1 Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.
2 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.
3 Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.

Brothers, we are accountable for those things that we do, as well as those things that we do not do.
Please see here that we are being told that the rust from our silver and gold that we have put back for the last days of our lives will be a witness against us, and will be as a fire upon our very flesh.
We who know God are held accountable for our actions after our salvation. Walking by faith means trusting God to provide for our needs as we do His work in the fields in which we have been placed.

4 Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.

Do not keep back for yourself that which you do owe to those who did labor under your employ.

5 Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.
6 Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.
7 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.
8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.

We are to patiently wait as the Lord's coming draws close. Be diligent in your service to God, and do not defraud any man.

9 Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.
10 Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience.
11 Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.
12 But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.

Brothers, we are to show mercy and pity on our brothers even when they do err in their ways. We are not perfect as was the one whom we serve. Therefore go about doing good and not evil, and when you fail, repent of that evil thing and continue your walk in faith.

13 Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.
14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:
15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
17 Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.
18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.
19 Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him;
20 Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.

Brothers, see here that if you convert a sinner from the error of his ways, and thereby save a soul from death. You shall hide a multitude of sins. We have all sinned, and God was and is faithful to forgive us those sins.
But, we have work to do, and we are to repent of our sin, and continue to lead the lost of this world to the saving grace of Jesus our Lord and Savior.

God bless you my brothers in Christ Jesus, and I pray for you each and every day.
