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


Jude 1:19 These be they. Already this is being fulfilled. Who separate themselves. Who separate themselves from God and the communion of saints. Sensual, having not the Spirit. Living an animal rather than a spiritual life.

Discussion for Jude 1

    Occasionally I think back to my young days and attending Church with my parents and saying the doxology, "Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow ..... "; it always ended, Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost. I looked it up and now it ends, "Creator, Christ and spirit, One." I guess they changed it in the new century, it doesn't say. At least they've got the ONE in there.

    The canon of the KJV was set by GOD; it is HIS book, after all. Anyone who wants to read the apocrypha can do so; it's in other books; so why complain about it ..... ? You still have your freedom to read the apocrypha. God will keep His book, the KJV, the way He wants it.

    Man may be bribed and compromise his ethic and moral. But GOD does not change. Just because man accepts wrong for right does not mean GOD will change HIS word. Man will soon find that out. Man acceptance is not GOD's acceptance. HE will punish unrighteousness. HE will show up suddenly and man won't be prepared because HE can't prepare for what is coming upon the earth. HE won't compromise.

    I love the book of Jude. It is so reverent, to what is going on today. Everyone should study this book, and take heed to it IN JESUS NAME!
  • Irene123
    To word - The "sons of god" wee the HUMANS on earth that believed in God, but sinned in that they took wives of other people who did not believe in God. Angels are spirits - sexless, not physical; cannot reproduce.

    I think of the book of Enoch when I read Jude, and how the wolves (scribes and pharisees along with others due to satan's influence) took this book as well as thousands of other book out of our canon. For anyone who reads their bible and knows it inside out it is easy to pick out all the quotes and references there are in the new testament from the apocrypha books. God Bless all with wisdom. Amen
