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.

    Serens , We are children of Satan until we are saved. When we get saved, we are born into the family of God!! It is a spiritual birth! ( John chapter 3 ) I hope this helps you.

    Verse 6 is speaking of those sons of God of Genesis chapter 6 that left heaven and joined Satan on earth who took women for the purpose of trying to destroy Gods plan of salvation and they had children with women that turned out to be Giants. Noah's family didn't turn to the wickedness of what Satan and his crew were trying to do. Their bodies are like ours when it comes to food because the Isrealites ate manna which was Angels food,bread and the rant that much different than us as far as things go. So they left their first estate and all of Gods children are sons of God, good ones and bad ones that will be destroyed.

    Serena, if you come to GOD with a repentant heart, He will forgive your sins. All He wants is for you to confess your sins, turn from your sinful ways, and accept His salvation through Jesus' death on Calvary's cross. All you need do is ask Him into your heart. The GOD that we serve is long suffering because it is not His will that any should perish. The day you hear His voice, harden not your heart.

    I am this type person Jude 1: 18-19 I don't wasn to be sensual or a monker, want to b part of His but my soul has no sense of loving the way people of God love, I want to konw the real joy of loving wanting serving and glorifying God thru his Son Jesus. Plz pray hard for mercy on my soul and that Jesus reforms my gene cell that um formed of to b one way or the other.. Im in fear that I can't receive this from Jesus, due that from my understanding here I'm already a woman whom belonged to hell the whole of my existence.Mercy on my soul Jesus son of David. Im desperately need to understand without any doubt that God can put me back with him after belonging to evil the whole of it all
  • Michael Hensley for verse 6
    I believe Jude 1:6 is saying when satan was removed from Heaven, those that believed in him, because he wanted the seat of GOD, satans angels believed they would become more powerful w him than w out him. KJV says RESERVED in everlasting chains, says they have a standing reservation under darkness. Not yet in that place of darkness, they roam w satan thru-out the world to deceive, under the direction of satan himself. Satan is only as powerful as GOD allows, so he needs all the assistance he can muster to do his damage. Don't believe satan has the power to be everywhere at the same time, as GOD can do, so he has a need for his angels. I don't believe satan as powerful as has been stated, as man- kind's weaknesses are probably greater. Satan's strengths come from man's weaknesses.
