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.

    Verse 6 those sons of God who left their first estate their habitation meaning heaven are the same ones in Gen chapter 6 who came to earth and took women and had giant babies half human an half angel. They are held until the 6th trump and then release to come to earth with Satan the false messiah who will deceive the whole world. Locust priest with iron breastplate as the breastplate priest wore.

    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.

    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.

    All praise to the almighty father above! AMEN

    Where basically Isaiah is the entire Bible rolled into one book, Jude is the truth about the enemy from day one and his OFFSPRING rolled into one chapter. Alot of info in a tight space that should lead man to truth where fables run rampant. It's sort of a " touch up" clarifying myths. It'll lead you on a long long study of the devil's children n how they're still around. Important today surely.
