Wesley's Notes for Jude 1:20


1:20 But ye, beloved, not separating, but building yourselves up in your most holy faith - Than which none can be more holy in itself, or more conducive to the most refined and exalted holiness. Praying through the Holy Spirit - Who alone is able to build you up, as he alone laid the foundation. In this and the following verse St. Jude mentions the Father, Son, and Spirit, together with faith, love, and hope.

Discussion for Jude 1:20

  • Ekwuojo Daniel for verse 20
    if you check, the holy faith is not in capital latter. This means your personal or individual holy faith not God 's Faith has to be built consciously and deliberately by a self discipline effort in subjecting ones self in praying in the Holy Ghost praying in tongues of the Spirit . Because this faith comes by hearing, hearing the WORD of God.
  • Brianna for verse 20
    While we await to see the fulfillment of the Promise of Jehovah God to rid the earth of all evil, I believe he is telling us to use the time now to build our faith up. NO matter how good we think we are, we still have to render an account to God. SO for now, let us work out as many flaws in ourselves as we can, and work on becoming approved by God. Build ourselves up now, while we wait on Jehovah for everlasting life.
  • I believe this scripture is telling us to surrender to the Holy Ghost so that He can build us up. So he can give us what we need. Because the Word reminds us that we don 't know what we ought to pray for.
  • Lourdes for verse 20
    One of my favorite scriptures.
  • Brian dunphy for verse 20
    this is one of my favorite scriptures when your praying in the hoy ghostso many people have gotten away from this the holy spirit has given m e a messagefor the church on grieving @quenching the holy spiritthe church needs a fresh baptism of the holy spirit
  • To be filled with the Holy Spirit is to be filled with Christ. The Holy Spirit came to glorify Christ. Therefore, if I am filled with the Spirit, I am abiding in Christ. I am walking in the light as He is the light, and the blood of Jesus Christ will cleanse and keep on cleansing me from all unrighteousness. I am controlled by Christ because the word "filling" means to be controlled. And if I am controlled -- not as a robot but as one who is led and empowered by the Spirit -- the Lord Jesus will walk around in my body and live His resurrection life in and through me.
