1 Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called:
If you believe in the power of the blood of Christ, you have been called. All that follow Christ have heard His voice.
2 Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied.
Once you accept that life of Christ, you can have "mercy, peace and love" because with your faith comes those things deep within your soul.
3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
Judas is telling us the sacrifice of Christ is the Way to have life as it is what every young Christian should know and believe in.
4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
"before of old ordained to this condemnation" = Committed in their ways all the way back to the first earth age. The Word of God is eternal, but these are trying their best to change it. Ever done a Parallel Bible study? It's sick what has been done to The Word of God. As for me, The King James Bible is The Only Bible. Starting with the niv, not one has been made that holds Truth.
5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.
Just because you once believed and yet fell away, doesn't save you today. God wants all or nothing. You either accept His love or He isn't going to waste His time on you. Don't you know that heaven is called such because there won't be ANY evil in it. Don't you understand why you're here now? It's a time to see the weeds.
6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
"habitation" - Greek = "Oiketerion, oy-kay-tey-ree-on, a place of residence." Do you know why God sent a flood in Gen. 6? These angles came here and had sex with women. Genesis 6:1-2 1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. These "sons of God" in the Old Testament are always speaking about the angles. Their goal was to stop the blood line of Christ = "The Key of David" the same thing that was tried in the garden with satan. The only habitation for the angels is heaven unless God sends them. They went on their own. The same ones will come again, to do the same thing to women. Do you see there are 3 different beings here? "sons of God" = angels, daughters and men. Revelation 12:7-9 7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels. 8 And prevailed not, neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. We are to have The Truth in us as to not be fooled. Waiting as virgins with The Veil over us for one husband. I Corinthians 11:10 :For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels. This is the "veil" they should have over them. That's The Truth of Christ.
7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
These homos got what they did because of their evil acts. Same thing is happening today because they reject God's Word. If they would only listen! So many that call themselves "Christians" support their evil acts. We are in a very sad state of mind today. God isn't going to let this go on much longer. We are the last generation to see ALL things come to pass.
8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.
Those that refuse Truth will find themselves as part of the fallen angels and satans tricks. God's Truth just isn't something they like. It goes against their fleshly wants. They have accepted the doctrines of demons as being the Word of God. Many of these even say they love the lord Jesus Christ and were raised Christian, and that they know better; but refuse His WHOLE Word for a few verses. The sick act of Sodomy =homosexual acts is called "a different life style" and its being accepted by the leaders of country's and the churches. Everyone is going to get what they have earned. 2Peter 2:9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptation, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:
9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.
God's telling us not to waste our time arguing with satan, just tell him "The Lord rebuke thee". Satan will use The Word just as all those evil ones that claim to be Christian, but aren't. His nature is to add Word's and take them away as to twist its original meanings. Our job is to study and fight the good fight.
10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.
This is speaking of satan and the fallen angels, but hold true for all those in the world that refuse The Truth of God. They say "it's ok to be gay" and God loves everyone and everything we do because "He is love". People have gone the way of these evil ones.
11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.
The way of Cain is to follow his dad the devil. Kenites- # 7014 ="Qayin, kah'-yin, Kajin, name of the first child, also of a place in Palestine, of an Oriental tribe" and 7017 "Qiyniy, kay-nee', from 7014, a Kenite or member of the tribe of Kajin: -Kente." I Chronicles 2:55 And the families of the scribes which dwelt at Jabez; the Tirathites, the Shimeathites, and Suchathites. These are the Kenites that came of Hemath, the father of the house of Rechab. Cain, son of satan was a murderer, lair and perverter just like his dad and Cain's offspring are just like their dad Cain. They have taken the laws and commandments, changing them into their own traditions, making void the Word of God. "Core" is the same as "Korah" born the son of Esau, and the mother was an Hittite as recorded in Genesis 36:1-5. Korah was the father of the Korahites, and became the priestly people.
12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;
Evil will try to make you feel comfortable around them. They will try to fool you. They are not only physically dead to come, but also spiritually dead = no fruit.
13 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.
"Raging waves" = Words of their own destruction. These "stars" = angels that are cast down with satan have already had their sentencing. Make sure you're ready! They're coming to do the same thing as in Gen. 6.
14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,
This happens after satan and his angels have come. Christ DOESN'T come back until the 7th trump. We have all been warned what to look for. If you would like to study The Book of Enoch I suggest The Coptic, also called the Ethiopian, is the oldest and considered the most accurate. The Slavic, considered the most popular is not one I recommend. It's liken to the niv with twisting of The Truth.
15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.
EVERYONE will be held accountable for what they have said and done, good or bad. This will happen at that 7th trump! This isn't The Great White Throne Judgment.
16 These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage.
Boy is this the world today. Not many REALLY care for the things of God, while claiming to be Christian. Very few follow what is truly good today. It's because there is no real rule of law and they just don't have time to study a chapter or go verse for verse studying God's Word. They will still tell you how good they are. Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
17 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;
Do you study The Word? ALL OF IT? Without All The Word, you will never understand a little bit to its fullest. I've found there aren't many Churches today, teaching God's Word. They are so busy having a show, they have very little time for anyone to hear The Word in context of what is being said. They hear a lot from someone standing on a stage, talking about nonsense instead of the simplicity of The Word as it's written.
18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.
I know people personally that claim to be "Christian" yet refuse what God has told them in His Word because they didn't like what they heard or what they read. They're worse than those that don't even claim to be "Christians". Revelation 3:15-16 15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. and I Timothy 4:1 Now the spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils: Look at what 2 Peter 3:1-7 says. It's a repeat of this. There are so many false "pastors" out there today putting people in bondage and the people just soak it up. Ignorance won't be an excuse when you're standing face to face with God.
19 These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.
ANYONE that does not agree with The Word of God, are separate from the Spirit of God. They follow satan! ALL of them. Anyone not of God, is of satan. Until you give up the flesh, you are following satans way. That goes for every religion in the world.
20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit,
Real Christians work on their Faith through The Holy Spirit. They are Can Do children of God.
21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
This is done by walking in faith with The Lord Christ Jesus in your heart daily and by staying in His Word, DAILY.
22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:
While we seek The Love in mercy, some will have "compassion, making a difference" to others. That's in work and words.
23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
Christians will point out the evil to others, they themselves where once in. Christians know and understand the evil being taught in the world and love to see others come out of it. This applies to those being taught false doctrines in the so-called churches of today. Very few churches are teaching Truth in this last generation. It's up to those that have given their life to The Lord daily to wake up the churches. Don't argue with them, just plant and pray!
24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
Only in Christ will you be able to stand. There is NO other way! While the world falls into the traps of satan and his evil ways, you follow The Path that brings power and joy, wisdom and understanding. In His Word EVERYDAY, you overcome the foolishness everyone else is following in this world. When we fall short, we have repentance and can rest in the FACT, we are made new, we have a fresh start to a new day. We have eternal life in Him.
25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
That's TRUTH you can count on. This book has been a warning to us about the ungodly angels to come upon the earth when satan is cast out of heaven. Are you ready for this battle we are in and the one to come? Have you been following His Word, letter by letter? If you're just brushing off the evil as part of life and not standing against it, your conforming to it. Standing on the sidewalk during a gay parade is the same thing as being in it. Rebuke the evil around you in Christ Jesus name and get to work. We are about at the end. Don't give up as so many do today. Fight the good fight! †
