GOOD VERSUS EVIL

Good verses evil
I will be going over Jude 1:16-25. Jude seems to be going over popular personalities that had center stage and were way off to the point that they were so far away from the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. If you are like the average person being off to the side in life you do not fit in this category as you travel through life; however, this passage is still applicable for you.
It is interesting to me that verse sixteen starts out with these people being murmurers  (that is how they spelled this word in that day) or complainers. I have seen many of these people but I never personally made the connection. Their not content with themselves, other people or God. I hope you are starting to see motive.
They walk after their own lusts and may I say without conscience so there is no room for God in their life. If we as Christians walk after our own lusts the presence of the Holy Spirit is less if at all so we would have to repent of our sins. The people that I mentioned at…

PUBLIC FIGURES TALKING AGAINST GOD

Public figures talking against God
Dreaming in a sinful way will eventually reach the physical realm and defile the flesh. This does other things but I will save that after I quote Jude 1:8-15.
Jude digresses and explains that Michael the archangel had a dispute with the devil about the body of Moses but refused to bring an accusation against Satan but said ... "The Lord rebuke thee." This is kind of interesting to me because I hear so many Christians rebuking the devil.
Defiling the flesh and a person having the ability to corrupt themselves is a very big theme with Jude. He uses the example of Cain and Balaam just like the examples of Egypt, angels in eternity past along with Sodom and Gomorra. In my previous article I went over Egypt, angels in eternity past along with Sodom and Gomorra. I will touch on some other truths in this writing.
Some verses that Jude writes are very hard to interpret but in the most broad sense of the word sin will lead into dead fruit but he gets mu…

RESPECT FOR THE GRACE OF GOD

Respect for the grace of God


I will be going over the book of Jude for the next couple of articles. Jude is one of the more blunt authors and he certainty is not boring. He gets right to the point.
As tough as Jude is he first calls himself a servant of Jesus Christ. He was the brother of James and also writes to those who are sanctified by God the Father. It is the same principle as salvation. When we accepted Jesus Christ into our hearts we were justified in the sight of God through His Son Jesus Christ. Notice he is writing to the sanctified by God. When we live holy and pure by abiding in Jesus Christ the sanctifying process takes place in our life. We are preserved in Jesus Christ (kept) because as Christians we are justified and sanctified through Jesus Christ by God.
Jude is very generous in his writing before he gives very tough examples of defeat. Jude says mercy, peace and love be multiplied to you. He said he was a diligent man to write to them so they would content for the fa…
