    Jude 1:3 "Beloved when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write to you and exhort you to earnestly contend for the faith which was once
    delivered unto the saints." When I contend for the faith, I contend for the Truth. Jesus contended for the faith. He rebuked those that spoke against the truth.
  • Jacoba
    The faith is not what you believe or what I believe, the faith is what the apostles wrote for us to learn. We are to believe the message the apostles taught. Jesus prayed for those who believed on Him through the apostles words. John 17: 20.

Their release is during the first tribulation as locust priest and Satan acts like Christ. Yes Angels can have children just like Satan had Cain. 1st tribulation false messiah 2nd tribulation Christ warrior hail stones fire crush Satans head.
  • Brianna vs.20-21
    Faith is so important to make it through these last days. God warned that things would advance from bad to worse. Sometimes this can affect us, to the point where we lose hope. This scripture encourages me to continue building my faith! Faith in Jehovah God and his son Jesus Christ will be what helps us to keep our integrity as we wait for God to fully take control!
  • Brianna vs 20-21
    Jehovah God constantly tells us to build our faith. This verse helps us to see why. Our faith is going to sustain us as we wait patiently for God to fulfill his promise to the Earth. Strong faith will help us to live a happy and satisfying life while we wait for the REAL life to come.
  • Julius Mutua
    I I love verse 20 and 21 where Jude is calling us to build our faith in the Lord and pray in the Holy Ghost besides living in the love of God and looking for His mercy always.
