    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.

    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.

    What an awesome epistle we got...Jude the brother of James both of them sons of Mary, mother of our Lord Jesus Christ.....this epistle has revealed to about the Enoch prophecies and about the what happened into Moses body...
  • Walter Rivera Santos
    Jude, James's brother, presents a Spiritual grounded faith to hold our personal life thoughts and acts on Him.
  • Johann
    Very deeply spiritual book, even quoting from the book of Enoch, which we dont have in the canon of the Bible. I dont always understand everything written in a book like this - you can add Revelations to it, however, in the gentlest way ever, the Holy Spirit would feed my soul with something as simple as verse 23. Ever wondered about a certain piece of clothing in your closet?
