STRAIGHT SHOOTING JUDE

2020 – WEDNESDAY 30 SEPTEMBER

STRAIGHT SHOOTING JUDE

Jude is the last book of the Bible before the book of the great return and revelation of Jesus.

Jude felt as though the self-seeking believers of his day – needed some straight talk.
And did he give it to them.
His essential challenge is to fight for your faith.

HE IDENTIFIED THEIR DOWNWARD SLIDE
Right here Jude reveals the progression of backsliding believers in the church.

Jude 1.8
UNGODLY PEOPLE
Likewise also these ungodly people ….

DREAM FILTH – ungodly desires
DEFILE THE FLESH – yield to their fleshly appetites
DESPISE DOMINION- reject godly truth and despise discipline.
DENIGRATE DIGNITIES – Speak evil of those in authority over them – including their parents – pastor’s & politicians.

HE THEN LINKED THEM TO BIBLICAL EXAMPLES
Jude 1:11
Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of CAIN, and ran greedily after the error of BALAAM for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of KORAH

CAIN – SELF WORKS
BALAAM – SELF REWARD
KORAH – SELF JUSTIFY

Somehow these warnings are still relevant for those who make up the backslidden underbelly of the church.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED
JUDGEMENT IS COMING
