Wesley's Notes for Jude 1:19


1:19 These are they who separate themselves, sensual, not having the Spirit - Having natural senses and understanding only, not the Spirit of God; otherwise they could not separate. For that it is a sin, and a very heinous one, to separate from the church, is out of all question. But then it should be observed, That by the church is meant a body of living Christians, who are an habitation of God through the Spirit: That by separating is understood, renouncing all religious intercourse with them; no longer joining with them in solemn prayer, or the other public offices of religion: and, That we have no more authority from scripture to call even this schism, than to call it murder.


People's Bible Notes for Jude 1:19

    Verse 7: The gross deeds and outlook of the inhabitants of Sodom and Gomorrah are warning examples to any who choose to imitate their ways today. This behavior will not be left without punishment.

    K. Patrick Gibson, you are correct. Those were mighty angels that mated with the women. This was the beginning of giants in the land.
  • A disciple
    I think I should correct something from my last post. In Genesis 4:25-26 was mentioned when "men began to call on the Name of the LORD;" or more accurately, "When men began to call themselves by the Name of the LORD." As the birth of Seth was pronounced by his parents as being to replace Abel whom Cain murdered; and so the new beginning of the sacred line of sons of God. Cain chose to be heathen.
  • A disciple
    Mr. Gibson (cont.); Looking at the places in Scripture where the term, "sons of God" is used: it is never used for the devil or any damned evil spirit; but for them to whom the Word of God has come! to MEN OF FAITH! In Job, it does not say that Satan was a son of God, but that he came in among them when THEY came to present themselves to the LORD. Gen. 4:25-26 was the beginning of the sons of God.
  • A disciple
    K Patrick Gibson; In Revelation it is described as the dragon dragging 1/3 of his angels with him, when he was cast out of heaven. Jesus said that He saw Satan like lightning fall from heaven. In Isaiah 14 we are shown what his perversion and sin was in lusting after God's throne and glory. Genesis 6 is NOT about demons but apostate men with whom the Spirit strove against their lusts of the flesh.
