Wesley's Notes for Jude 1:20


1:20 But ye, beloved, not separating, but building yourselves up in your most holy faith - Than which none can be more holy in itself, or more conducive to the most refined and exalted holiness. Praying through the Holy Spirit - Who alone is able to build you up, as he alone laid the foundation. In this and the following verse St. Jude mentions the Father, Son, and Spirit, together with faith, love, and hope.

Discussion for Jude 1

    I listen to all of your comment and what I had read is very interesting. There is some truth to all of your saying but I understand we are to quick to judge. If someone make an mistake or being mislead or have lack of knowledge, do I call that person a follower of Satan? When I listen to people speak their belief and what they heard, It take me back to the time I was in elementary school. Then teacher would whisper something in one person ear and the the student would whisper the same message to each other until it reach the last student. When the last student repeat what he had heard it, the message had change and sound completely different from the original message. All I am saying we have to stop putting our trust in what people are saying, ask God is there any truth to what we had heard and to help us understand what was put before us. If we put our trust in God the father and his son Jesus Christ we should never go wrong. To be honest with you, to ease the pain of my long suffering, I give in to temptation and sin, but I always find myself going back and doing the right thing when thing get a little out of hand, and I thank God and his son that I am forgiven.

    Im McCall, You just described most "church." Even the ones that have one name denomination typically do not teach the true doctrine of God's Word. Even those that post on this website, and God's word is right in front of them. May the Lord show his mercy.
  • I m, McCall
    Anyone that attends more than one religion mixture of church having different denominations if it's not the word of the son of God himself then we'll they are totally confused they need to ask the Lord for his guidance to the right path,
  • Israel Mitchell McCAll
    I love the book of Jude for the strength the laws of our Lord king Jesus
  • David young
    I believe Jude was a man who had a great concern for the church.Not the church building but for the body of Christ.Oh,did you know that having more than one church is a sin.For example the catholic church,the baptist church,the protestant church the seventh day adventist,and so on and so on,you can't be joined to the body of Christ and be joined to the church at the same time.You will either hate
