Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Jude 1:8

1:8 In like manner these dreamers - Sleeping and dreaming all their lives. Despise authority - Those that are invested with it by Christ, and made by him the overseers of his flock. Rail at dignities - The apostle does not seem to speak of worldly dignities. These they had in admiration for the sake of gain, #Jude 1:16|; but those holy men, who for the purity of their lives, the soundness of their doctrine, and the greatness of their labours in the work of the ministry, were truly honourable before God and all good men; and who were grossly vilified by those who turned the grace of God into lasciviousness. Probably they were the impure followers of Simon Magus, the same with the Gnostics and Nicolaitans, #Rev 2:15|. #2Pet 2:10|.

    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.
