Wesley's Notes for Jude 1:22


1:22 Meantime watch over others, as well as yourselves, and give them such help as their various needs require. For instance, Some, that are wavering in judgment, staggered by others' or by their own evil reasoning, endeavour more deeply to convince of the whole truth as it is in Jesus. Some snatch, with a swift and strong hand, out of the fire of sin and temptation. On others show compassion in a milder and gentler way; though still with a jealous fear, lest yourselves be infected with the disease you endeavour to cure.See, therefore, that while you love the sinners, ye retain the utmost abhorrence of their sins, and of any the least degree of, or approach to, them.

    Tequan or anyone else, yes Enoch is mentioned however as a fairly new believer where in the bible is there any prophesies written by Enoch. I only can see that others mention anything about him nothing else?

    2 Corinthians 2: 9-10. But God has revealed them to us by His Spirit.
  • Stephen F. Zielski
    It truly is the church epistle's that were written to all of us. Are all of us on the same page in the rightly divided Word of Truth ? I think not ! Believe and do what the Word says to do and always pray in the Holy Spirit Tongues. Spiritual warfare is come and the time is truly neigh at hand when our Heavenly Abba Dad will fully restore all things through Christ our Living Lord and Savior Amen.

    Strong meat is for those whose spiritual senses are exercised through enduring temptations and trials of faith. "Hard to be uttered" to babes in understanding the word of righteousness necessary to receive strength and growth in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ. "Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard what God has prepared for them who love him. But by his Holy Spirit he reveals the hidden manna.
  • Tequan Elias
    I like Jude because it speaks about Enoch
  • Grace
    such a nice epistle, i like verse 8 "Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities".that is what we have every where in the world today people defiling the flesh and speaking evil of dignities, may God continue to keep his own ,and grant us more grace as we earnestly wait for his return.
