Wesley's Notes for Jude 1:12


1:12 These are spots - Blemishes. In your feasts of love - Anciently observed in all the churches. Feeding themselves without fear - Without any fear of God, or jealousy over themselves. Twice dead - In sin, first by nature, and afterwards by apostasy. Plucked up by the roots - And so incapable of ever reviving.

    It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves. Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.
  • Therefore, ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD: Thus saith the Lord GOD: Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD.
