THE EPISTLE OF JUDE

          Welcome back to Daily Bread, and the study of The Epistle of Jude. This is a short letter, written to Christians, encouraging them to be strong in their faith, because of the many deceivers who use the church to do their own will instead of the Lordís will. Jude warns about things that happened in the past to show Christians that we need to be alert and to stand up and fight when evil tries to lead Christians astray.

          Jude begins his letter with heartfelt blessings to the people, and then says, When I earnestly wanted to write to you about salvation for all, it was necessary for me to write and urge you to diligently fight for the faith that was once given to the saints before us. Because there are certain people who creep in secretly, who premeditate condemning Christians. They are ungodly men, turning the Grace of our God into evil and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

          Jude says: I will remind you again, even though you once knew this, how the Lord, having saved the Israelite  people out of the land of Egypt, He then afterward destroyed those who didnít believe (in the Great Flood). And the angels who didnít keep their original place with God, (Genesis 6:1-5) but left their own habitation, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness until the great day of judgment (The Book of Enoch, Chapter 6 and 7).

          This brings us to the question of the book of Enoch being a trustworthy place to seek TRUTH. I mean, the book of Enoch was not placed in the Bible just as many others were chosen by man not to be placed in the Bible. In fact the Book of Enoch, just as others, and even the Bible has been translated and rewritten by others over the years. However, we see that the Bible not only mentions Enoch but agrees with many things in the book of Enoch. Therefore, we have provided the Book of Enoch study for you to ponder and decide upon.

          Even like Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities around them in the same way, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are made as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise authority, and speak evil of dignities. Exodus 22:28 says, Thou shalt not revile God, nor curse the ruler of thy people.)

          Even 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.

STRONG FAITH IN GOD QUOTES LESSON WITH STRONG FAITH IN GOD QUOTES EXPLANATION

What could this mean? Well, it may seem vague and individual interpretations as you can imagine probably vary widely, but it may be that since Michael is the best of angels, and the devil is the worst of angels, Michael may have thought Satan as so inferior that to spat with the devil would be an insult to his integrity, so he modestly put it in the Lord's hands. As to the dispute about the body of Moses, the Bible has no record of this included, but it may be in regards to either Moses' burying place or his resurrection when Jesus was transfigured. Let's get back to what Jude was saying ...

          But these people Iím talking about, speak wickedly of things they donít know about: but what they know naturally, like wild animals, in those things they destroy themselves. Woe unto them! Theyíve followed in the footsteps of Cain (Genesis 4:1-15), and ran greedily for money, like the sin of Balaam, (Numbers 22:7-8) and perished in the contention of Korah (Numbers 16:32). These people are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear.

          What is Jude saying here? The people who use the Church for their own gain, and to deceive others, are dirt in your celebrations of love, when they act like theyíre in agreement with you, and profit without a guilty conscience. He goes on: Theyíre like clouds without water, blown around by the wind, trees without fruit, twice dead, pulled up by the roots. Theyíre like raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame, like wandering stars, to whom darkness belongs forever. And Enoch also, the seventh (generation) from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of His saints, 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 (The Book of Enoch, Chapter 1, Verse 9).

          Jude further explains who these people are. These are grumblers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and they speak great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage. What does that mean? It means that these people will speak against the church, and fight for their own desires instead of Godís will. They also want the respect of men, because they feel like it gives them power. Now listen to what Jude concludes about them.

          But, beloved, remember the words which were spoken before by the Apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ, how they told you that there would be mockers in the end, who would walk after their own ungodly lusts. These are the people who cause divisions, they are worldly and do not have the Spirit of God. But you, beloved, strengthening your faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, keep yourselves in the LOVE of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life.

STRONG FAITH IN GOD QUOTES INFORMATION WITH STRONG FAITH IN GOD QUOTES MEANING

          Now, Jude has, up to this point, described to us, the lost. However, the lost are the ones that the Lord wants back, so very badly. Remember, weíre all His children, and He wants us all. So, here Jude gives us some advice of how to reach those lost souls and bring them back to their Father, and of how to admonish other Christians as well, when we find them being led away from their fold. Jude says, And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. In other words, sometimes you can save them gently, with loving words and encouragement, but other times, you have to be stern, and put the fear of God in them. You may have to tell them things they donít want to hear.

          Letís talk about this from another perspective too. The Shepherd's ... Youíre dealing with the lost. That means that theyíre in a place where they shouldnít be, but the only way to get them out, is to go and get them. If your sheep is fallen into the mud or is hanging on the side of a cliff, youíll have to get dirty in order to save itís little soul. People may look down at you, and say, Ewww, youíre all dirty, but God knows WHY youíve gotten dirty. You sought to save a child of HIS. Just know TRUTH and despise the place they are in. Hate the sin, not the sinner. Jude says, hate the dirt (sin) that you had to see, sense, fight, when you went in to help the lost sheep. Another perspective ... If a person gets a disease, you don't dislike the person, you dislike the disease.

          Another thing to remember is that each sheep is different. And in addition to that, each instance is different. You may have to rescue the same sheep with compassion one day, fire the next, and compassion the day after that. Just ask the Holy Spirit to guide you, and He will help you to understand what method to use to bring them back to the fold.

          Jude ends his letter with some very moving words of praise to God, and also a reminder that weíre all sheep, and that we all need to reach out for the Lordís Hand when weíre about to slip. The closing of his letter goes like this: Now, to Him that is able to keep you from stumbling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.

          Although The Epistle of Jude is brief, let not the brevity of his words deceive you ... Itís a very good reminder of several different things. Be alert. Be reminded. Beware. Be compassionate. Be stern. And beloved, be reaching up and adoring to God.

         The next, and very last study of the New Testament is next, called The Revelation of Jesus Christ to St. John. You definitely donít want to miss this wonderful prophecy of the End Times. Youíll be anxious to get from one chapter to the next, so hurry back and youíll discover things you never knew before. Itís all right here, in your Daily Bread!
