Discussion for Jude 1

    Man may be bribed and compromise his ethic and moral. But GOD does not change. Just because man accepts wrong for right does not mean GOD will change HIS word. Man will soon find that out. Man acceptance is not GOD's acceptance. HE will punish unrighteousness. HE will show up suddenly and man won't be prepared because HE can't prepare for what is coming upon the earth. HE won't compromise.

    Unto Him who is able to keep me. I'm a kept women. Who can wash away my sin. Who is able to keep me in my right, who is able to keep me delivered from my enemy, who is able love me the way no one else can. I'm a single women He keeps me clothed, roof pver my head, He keeps me with transportation, He keeps my face on his mind and my name on His lips, HE is the breath I breathe. I'm a kept women!!!

    I love the book of Jude. It is so reverent, to what is going on today. Everyone should study this book, and take heed to it IN JESUS NAME!

    To word - The "sons of god" wee the HUMANS on earth that believed in God, but sinned in that they took wives of other people who did not believe in God. Angels are spirits - sexless, not physical; cannot reproduce.

    I think of the book of Enoch when I read Jude, and how the wolves (scribes and pharisees along with others due to satan's influence) took this book as well as thousands of other book out of our canon. For anyone who reads their bible and knows it inside out it is easy to pick out all the quotes and references there are in the new testament from the apocrypha books. God Bless all with wisdom. Amen

    Tender is our body here. One degree of temp change spells sickness. Jude tells of our soul being tender here. Our testimonies amazing yet not overshadowing Jesus' life. Sin in the world abounds we must keep our soul from exposure. Our desires in the world must not drive us. Even sinners, only receiving an indirect statement that God dislikes it. We cannot be the judge yet we have God's wisdom.
