Wesley's Notes for Jude 1:19


1:19 These are they who separate themselves, sensual, not having the Spirit - Having natural senses and understanding only, not the Spirit of God; otherwise they could not separate. For that it is a sin, and a very heinous one, to separate from the church, is out of all question. But then it should be observed, That by the church is meant a body of living Christians, who are an habitation of God through the Spirit: That by separating is understood, renouncing all religious intercourse with them; no longer joining with them in solemn prayer, or the other public offices of religion: and, That we have no more authority from scripture to call even this schism, than to call it murder.


People's Bible Notes for Jude 1:19


Jude 1:19 These be they. Already this is being fulfilled. Who separate themselves. Who separate themselves from God and the communion of saints. Sensual, having not the Spirit. Living an animal rather than a spiritual life.

    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.
  • Jbmac
    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.
  • David crawford
    a book of divine warnings against falling away from the faith. very sobering. we have to stay in the love of god or face divine judgement.
  • Bryce123
    All praise to the almighty father above! AMEN
