1 Iude the seruant of Iesus Christ, and brother of Iames, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserued in Iesus Christ, & called:

2 Mercie vnto you, and peace, and loue be multiplied.

3 Beloued, when I gaue all diligence to write vnto you of the common saluation: it was needfull for mee to write vnto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once deliuered vnto the Saints.

4 For there are certaine men crept in vnawares, who were before of olde ordained to this condemnation, vngodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciuiousnesse, and denying the onely Lord God, & our Lord Iesus Christ.

5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord hauing saued the people out of the land of Egypt afterward destroied them that beleeued not.

6 And the Angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserued in euerlasting chaines vnder darkenesse, vnto the iudgement of the great day.

7 Euen as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them, in like maner giuing themselues ouer to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffring the vengeance of eternall fire.

8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speake euill of dignities.

9 Yet Michael the Archangel, when contending with the deuill, he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.

10 But these speake euill of those things, which they know not: but what they knowe naturally, as brute beastes, in those things they corrupt themselues.

11 Wo vnto them, for they haue gone in the way of Kain, and ranne greedily after the errour of Balaam, for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.

12 These are spottes in your feasts of charitie, when they feast with you, feeding themselues without feare: cloudes they are without water, caried about of winds, trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twise dead, plucked vp by the rootes.

13 Raging waues of the sea, foming out their owne shame, wandring stars, to whom is reserued the blacknesse of darkenesse for euer.

14 And Enoch also, the seuenth from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord commeth with ten thousands of his Saints,

15 To execute iudgement vpon all, and to conuince all that are vngodly among them, of all their vngodly deeds which they haue vngodly committed, and of all their heard speaches, which vngodly sinners haue spoken against him.

16 These are murmurers complainers, walking after their owne lustes, and their mouth speaketh great swelling wordes, hauing mens persons in admiration because of aduantage.

17 But beloued, remember yee the words, which were spoken before of the Apostles of our Lord Iesus Christ:

18 How that they tolde you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walke after their own vngodly lustes.

19 These be they who separate themselues, sensual, hauing not the spirit.

20 But yee beloued, building vp your selues on your most holy faith, praying in the holy Ghost,

21 Keepe your selues in the loue of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Iesus Christ vnto eternall life.

22 And of some haue compassion, making a difference:

23 And others saue with feare, pulling them out of the fire: hating euen the garment spotted by the flesh.

24 Now vnto him that is able to keepe you from falling, and to present you faultlesse before the presence of his glory with exceeding ioy,

25 To the onely wise God our Sauiour, be glory and maiestie, dominion and power, now and euer. Amen.

Word's Jude Chapter 1 comment on 9/04/2015, 2:07pm...

Verse 6 is speaking of those sons of God of Genesis chapter 6 that left heaven and joined Satan on earth who took women for the purpose of trying to destroy Gods plan of salvation and they had children with women that turned out to be Giants. Noah's family didn't turn to the wickedness of what Satan and his crew were trying to do. Their bodies are like ours when it comes to food because the Isrealites ate manna which was Angels food,bread and the rant that much different than us as far as things go. So they left their first estate and all of Gods children are sons of God, good ones and bad ones that will be destroyed.

Serena, if you come to GOD with a repentant heart, He will forgive your sins. All He wants is for you to confess your sins, turn from your sinful ways, and accept His salvation through Jesus' death on Calvary's cross. All you need do is ask Him into your heart. The GOD that we serve is long suffering because it is not His will that any should perish. The day you hear His voice, harden not your heart.

Serena Riddle's Jude Chapter 1 comment on 8/24/2015, 11:44pm...

I am this type person Jude 1: 18-19 I don't wasn to be sensual or a monker, want to b part of His but my soul has no sense of loving the way people of God love, I want to konw the real joy of loving wanting serving and glorifying God thru his Son Jesus. Plz pray hard for mercy on my soul and that Jesus reforms my gene cell that um formed of to b one way or the other.. Im in fear that I can't receive this from Jesus, due that from my understanding here I'm already a woman whom belonged to hell the whole of my existence.Mercy on my soul Jesus son of David. Im desperately need to understand without any doubt that God can put me back with him after belonging to evil the whole of it all


Michael Hensley's Jude Chapter 1 comment about verse 6 on 8/24/2015, 8:43pm...

I believe Jude 1:6 is saying when satan was removed from Heaven, those that believed in him, because he wanted the seat of GOD, satans angels believed they would become more powerful w him than w out him. KJV says RESERVED in everlasting chains, says they have a standing reservation under darkness. Not yet in that place of darkness, they roam w satan thru-out the world to deceive, under the direction of satan himself. Satan is only as powerful as GOD allows, so he needs all the assistance he can muster to do his damage. Don't believe satan has the power to be everywhere at the same time, as GOD can do, so he has a need for his angels. I don't believe satan as powerful as has been stated, as man- kind's weaknesses are probably greater. Satan's strengths come from man's weaknesses.


Kathryn McDade's Jude Chapter 1 comment on 7/20/2015, 6:24am...

Even when you are thinking wrong thoughts and done evil knowing Jesus Christ can deliver you of your evil thoughts and become free and live wholly and blameless in love of the Father that is heaven.
