Discussion for Jude 1

  • 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?
  • Lashell Thompson
    Jude is one of my favorites especially vs22 having compassion and making a difference, snatching them out the fire, and having mercy on others with fear, hating the garment spotted by the flesh defiled by the body. Its time for the church to rise and perfect holiness and allowed the glory of Jesus Christ to shine forth in our life. Showing the love of Christ and not just talkers. Put on Christ!!
  • Wayne
    V.24: the great thing about Jesus Christ is that He is able to keep us from falling. And to present us faultless before The Father. In all the glory of Heaven. Mockers in the last days mock scriptures such as these. They, in religion, will try to bring you down to their level. DON' T LET THEM DO IT! ABIDE IN CHRIST The Saviour. And you will not fulfill the sin of the flesh. Rejoice!!

    I can see how the comparison to Babylon some of the scholars are making to the U.S. is coming to fruition. I pray that something changes to prevent this from happening. We are better people than that but we must reel in our morals and start living by them or it will be a terrible punishment by our Father.
  • J Joshua k Powell
    Jude is a great book especially I love the last verse.
  • Pressley
    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.
