Wesley's Notes for Jude 1:14


1:14 And of these also - As well as the antediluvian sinners Enoch - So early was the prophecy referred to, #Jude 1:4|. The seventh from Adam - There were only five of the fathers between Adam and Enoch, #1Chron 1:1 |- 3. The first coming of Christ was revealed to Adam; his second, glorious coming, to Enoch; and the seventh from Adam foretold the things which will conclude the seventh age of the world. St. Jude might know this either from some ancient book, or tradition, or immediate revelation. Behold - As if it were already done, the Lord cometh!

    Dear Fred; you may find it interesting to do a word study about the number 666. Many people have strange "guessings" about what it means and how we are to recognize it; but with a Greek Interlinear New Testament and a Strong's Concordance you can look up the archaic and root meanings of the "numbers" and find that they imply a casting off of all restraint and going over all boundaries. Gen. 11:5-6
