The Book of Jude
I write a lot concerning the end of days because I’m convinced that it will happen in the very near future. Please remember that this is just my opinion. Yours may be entirely different.
When Jesus spoke about the generation that would not pass away until all these things be fulfilled, it stands to reason that, of the three generations mentioned in Scripture, the seventy-year generation has to be the only one that fits within the time-frame:
Luke 21:32Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. KJV
That generation beginning back in 1948 when Israel, after 1800 years, established herself as a nation, recognized by the United Nations and countries around the world, the good and bad fig returning to the land of their forefathers. The exception to that being the nation of Islam.
Given that we might agree on the above information, we are very close to that year in which, I believe, the return of our Lord will happen. Of course, Satan in his role as the Antichrist, will have to appear in Jerusalem first, and we are assured of that fact from what St. Paul tells us in his second letter to the Thessalonians:
2nd Thessalonians 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
The apostasy, which is what the falling away is, and Satan, the son of perdition, standing in Jerusalem, must happen first. I don’t care what anybody else has to say about this, if they don’t understand the truth in the above verse, they’re headed down a path of deception from which they may not return.
And if someone understands the Scriptures to the point that they think, within themselves, that they can be saved during the Millennium, they are already lost. They already have enough truth in their minds to make a correct decision and that, in and of itself, will convict them when they stand before our Lord.
They knew enough truth to be able to live their lives according to His laws but instead convinced themselves that they would live any way they pleased and just before the end, they would come around and make it into the eternity by the skin of their teeth.
That was how I lived my life for many, many years. I’m going to party and do the things that made me happy and just before I die, I’ll turn things around and I’ll get into heaven. The skin of the teeth syndrome. BAD IDEA.
But, in order to be able to withstand the lies of Satan during that five-month period of tribulation, you must possess an understanding of what it’s all about before that time arrives, which means that you need to begin to study today and continue to study every day thereafter.
The time for sitting on the sidelines, going to church once a week and expecting to receive the needed knowledge, is long gone. Our Lord knew that Satan and his deception would be so strong, during his tribulation, that even His Elect would begin to believe it and He shortened that time from 3 ½ years to five months:
Matthew 24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. KJV
And it’s been shortened to how long?
Revelation 9:5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. KJV
In case we missed it, He gave it again..
Revelation 9:10 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months. KJV
You have to find the time to read and study on your own or find a good teacher somewhere to study with.
Alright, let’s get into the book of Jude. There’s only one chapter in this book and the subject of the book will be threefold:
The fallen angels, sodomites and lawlessness.
Jude:1 Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called:
To whom is this book written or addressed? To them that are sanctified by God the Father. Those souls/people that are a part of His Election, who today, know that the false messiah comes before the true Messiah. They were justified in the world that was and now Father can use them in this life to help further His Divine Plan.
There are some that say that the Elect were chosen because of what they did and that works cannot get you into heaven. They're right on the part of works not getting you into heaven but it wasn't their works that justified them, it was their love for our Father that did it.
Father can use us if we allow Him to do so because we still have free will. We can reject Him any time that we choose.
The full name of Jude would be Judas and not the Judas that betrayed our Lord, that was Judas Iscariot, but this Jude would be the brother of James, the one who wrote the book of James. That book dedicated to the eleven Tribes that were scattered across the Caucasus Mountains and eventually around the world.
We can find Jude mentioned in Luke:
Luke 6:16 And Judas the brother of James, and Judas Iscariot, which also was the traitor. KJV
And also in the book of John:
John 14:22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world? KJV
Sanctified and called means that Jude was one of our Father’s Election, chosen in the world that was, justified to the point that He could interfere in his life and use him for His special purposes.
You can be a part of that Election today if you have the seal of God in your forehead, meaning that you understand the difference between the true and the false Christ, this seal giving you that protection during the tribulation of Satan/Antichrist:
Revelation 9:4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. KJV
Does that make one special? Maybe. But only to the extent that Father can use you and that only to the extent that you allow Him to do so. During this life you still have free will, you can still do whatever you want, you can still walk into the lake of fire if that’s what you want.
Once you attain that level of understanding and belief it’s only your own human nature that can make you vulnerable. This is where the foundation of deep studying and understanding comes into play. Without that foundation or knowledge to fall back on, Satan/Antichrist can make you doubt what truth you do have in your mind, and this is why I implore you to study as much as possible because the time is definitely near.
Jude:2 Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied.
When you love our Father, He will give you mercy, peace, and love but you have to stay in His good graces. And how do you do that? Obey His commandments, live your life according to His will.
Jude:3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
Common salvation is what is available to all. Neither the Father nor our Lord has respect of persons, that is, there are none that are placed higher or lower than others, we are all on equal ground when it comes to being one of His children:
1st Peter 1:17 And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear: KJV
Jude wants us to continue to keep the faith that we once had, which in this life, can be difficult at times.
We all have the same opportunities of making it through this world, this life, and ending up with eternal salvation and eternal bliss in a world comprised of things of which we have no concept, joy beyond what our mortal brains could ever conceive.
You might be a somebody in this life…powerful, influential and rich…but that holds no water with our Father. In fact, it will be easier for someone who has next to nothing to get into the eternity because the trappings of this world have no influence on them. They are quite content to live with what they have, however small that might be:
Luke 18:25 For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. KJV
Getting rich and powerful usually, and I emphasize usually, involves bending the rules somewhat.
Jude:4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
If we connect verse 3 with this, whose subject is faith, then we should see that these certain men were faithless beings because they were already condemned to destruction and condemnation.
Of old would lead us to believe that they came from the world that was, as did His Election. Where the Election were justified by their love and allegiance to our Father, these souls were justified by Lucifer and their love and allegiance to him.
We’ll have to wait until we get back into our final spiritual body to understand fully what happened in that first heaven/earth age but we do know that Lucifer, Satan’s name during that time, was overcome with love for himself and, with billions of souls backing him, he tried to overtake our Father and control heaven and that age himself.
What could he have promised those billions of souls that took sides with him? I don’t believe that we change all that much, regardless of which body our soul and spirit reside in at any given time, so envy may have played an important part.
We’re told in the book of Job that all souls sang together with our Father during that first age but that may be an oversimplification or generalization, based on the knowledge that billions of souls took sides with Satan during that time and turned their back on our Father.
Job 38:7 When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy? KJV
If beings were so completely happy and content, something more tantalizing and attractive was presented to them by Lucifer and not all of those souls could have been promised to be put in a position of power, along with their leader Lucifer, but something certainly changed their minds.
And he didn’t have the power to create, as our Father did, so it will remain a perplexing situation until we have that next change of bodies and we have complete remembrance of all that happened during that time.
Certain men crept in unawares. This does not have to be limited to only the time indicated by this verse but can be something that can and has happened today. Have you listened to your preacher lately? How many Scripture references did he have in his last sermon? Did he teach/preach in such a manner that the truth of our Father’s Word came through loud and clear?
Or did he preach on a subject that was forgotten by the time you reached the parking lot to go home? Did he preach on the rapture theory or the any-moment doctrine? These are the things that creep in unawares and they started hundreds of years ago so it’s not something new to you, you’ve heard about these false doctrines all your life.
And that’s what makes these false doctrines so insidious. The more times a lie is repeated, the closer to the truth it becomes.
Jude:5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.
Though they were fully and completely instructed on this, they chose not to live under those sets of commands or instructions and they paid a price. I think that Father brings this out to remind us that there are consequences for not following or obeying Him.
Constantly falling back into idol worship, imitating the surrounding heathen nations, women using small versions of the Ashtoreth to satisfy themselves. Time after time after time. Today they come equipped with battery-operated vibration to enhance the experience.
And we are no different today. Tens of millions of us in this country viewing pornographic web sites 24/7. The country of Thailand and the city of Bangkok, known worldwide for the availability of young girls for deviant sex, men paying huge amounts of money to go to bed with a ten-year-old child. Russia, known for their porno websites, and export of their videos.
The Dominican Republic caters to tourism interested in prostitution; Cambodia and the cities of Seim and Phnom Penh catering to prostitution; the Netherlands with their red-light district; Spain and the city of Barcelona known for prostitution; Brazil and the cities of Rio de Janeiro and Fortaleza for prostitution; the Philippines and their prostitution.
Robo-sex, sex robots, built to look, act and feel just like a human, powered by Artificial Intelligence, some costing thousands of dollars.
From the Telegraph, science section in England:
“Doll brothels already operate in South Korea, Japan and Spain, while the first robotic oral sex coffee shop opened in Paddington, west London, last year.”
Perhaps, one day, sexual perverts can use them as therapy, to abuse them, torture them and kill them without ever laying a hand on a real human being. And you can look for this too….Congress may pass laws regulating the use of these robots and I guarantee you, one day someone will be prosecuted and put in prison for abusing one of these battery-operated monstrosities.
The New York Post reports that 67% of Americans have sent or received a sex text. 71% of teen girls and 67% of teen boys have shared sexual messages or pictures with a boyfriend/girlfriend.
Israel had nothing on us, they were amateurs but only because it took so long for technology to advance to a point where these things are possible.
Jude:6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
The fallen angels. Nephilim. 7000 of them. In the age that was, they were probably the closest sidekicks of Lucifer. They were up there in heaven, looking down on earth, taking note of the women, the daughters of Adam as the Scripture calls them:
Genesis 6:2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. KJV
You must remember that in the age that was, all souls were of the male gender, they had the apparatus to fulfill their desires to have sex with these women. And after they did, the children that were produced were called Nephilim or Geber or men of renown or Titans:
Genesis 6:4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. KJV
They are associated with Greek mythology but they are very real indeed. They are being held today in a place called Tartarus but you won’t find that word in the Scriptures, it is identified as hell in 2nd Peter:
2nd Peter 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; KJV
✡ Hell__NT:5020 tartaroo (tar-tar-o'-o); from Tartaros (the deepest abyss of Hades); to incarcerate in eternal torment: KJV - cast down to hell.
Were these Nephilim allowed to live and procreate it would have threatened the entirety of humanity, destroyed the Plan of our Father, and stopped the birth of the Messiah, which was Satan’s goal from the beginning. Satan’s first attempt to destroy the bloodline of the Savior was in the Garden when he wholly seduced Eve and produced his child Cain.
So, Father created a flood for the express purpose of destroying these aberrations, these abominations. It was a localized flood and not worldwide, as in the flood that ended the world that was and began the era in which we are now living.
Where did that water come from? It came from the firmament that surrounded this planet. In the world that was, there were no flowing streams, no rivers, no lakes or oceans. Everything was watered by the dew that settled every night.
The water that we see here today was a layer that surrounded the entire earth, protecting everything from the harmful rays of the sun. Scripture calls it the firmament. Today we have the ozone layer for protection.
But, the flood that was intended to destroy all of these Nephilim was not successful because we find in Genesis the words and also after that:
Genesis 6:44 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. KJV
These giants were in the land of Canaan when our Father’s children were instructed to go there and make a home for themselves. You will remember that each Tribe took a representative and sent them over that mountain to spy the territory out and when they returned, this is what they reported as seeing:
Numbers 13:33 And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight. KJV
That angered our Father and we know what the result was.
When the archangel Michael releases Satan from heaven to begin his five-month tribulation, as the Antichrist, those 7000 fallen angels will be released from Tartarus along with him:
Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. KJV
And when they are back here, they will roam the earth looking for women, just like they did in the book of Genesis. And they will be very difficult for women to resist. But the time frame for them will be too short for any offspring to be born.
Let’s be honest here…depending on what sex you are, think of a movie star or a rock star that you really like and think is very attractive. They will look like that. No wings, no halo, no spiritual aura around them, just an attractiveness that is above the average person. Trust me, no one will ever mistake me for one of these fallen angels.
Men and women alike are warned about these angels, being told that they should have the protection of our Lord over them to keep themselves safe and to avoid falling for and giving in to whatever temptation that might come over you:
1st Corinthians 11:10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels. KJV
Remember also that Father told us that there would never be a temptation too strong for us to resist:
1st Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. KJV
And, finally, concerning these fallen angels, they will die in the Lake of Fire the moment the Lord sets foot in Jerusalem once again. Satan will die after the Great White Throne Judgment.
Jude:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
This verse continues with the same thought as in verse 6, that these people from the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, plus the two other sister cities, will die in the Lake of Fire if one does these types of things.
What was the sin of those that lived in these two cities?
Genesis 18:20 And the Lord said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous; KJV
Their sin was participating in sexual activities with strange flesh. What does strange flesh mean? It means people of the same sex. People of one sex were having sexual intercourse with people of the same sex.
In today’s language, we call it homosexualism and lesbianism. Men were having sexual intercourse with other men and women were doing the same with other women. Why did our Father consider that to be wrong?
Because it went against His Plan to replenish the earth. Sex between a man and a woman was not only allowed but it was encouraged because the result of such a relationship would bring forth another child within which He would place another soul from the first heaven/earth age, from the time when He created all souls for His pleasure.
There are no offspring or children from a sexual relationship between two men or two women. And, yes, Father condoned sexual intercourse between a man and a woman, even when having a child was not the primary intention. But they also had to be married first.
Whenever such acts occurred He called it an abomination and I’ll give you some instances of this happening…
Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. KJV
And when it comes to the military…
Deuteronomy 23:14 For the Lord thy God walketh in the midst of thy camp, to deliver thee, and to give up thine enemies before thee; therefore shall thy camp be holy: that he see no unclean thing in thee, and turn away from thee. KJV
And this as well…
Romans 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Romans 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
Romans 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
Romans 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. KJV
1st Timothy 1:10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; KJV
Father didn’t say that He wished that we wouldn’t do these things or that He hoped that we wouldn’t do these things, He said that it was an abomination to Him to see us do these types of acts.
Now, I know the argument against acts of homosexuality and lesbianism being a voluntary decision, to participate in such things, because they’ll say..
”When did you decide to be a homosexual or a lesbian. When did you decide to be heterosexual?”
I’m not here to satisfy that argument one way or the other. There are arguments that it is NOT a voluntary decision, that they were born that way and if that is true, then it is a genetic problem that maybe no one can do anything about.
On the other hand, Father said that He would never allow a temptation to come on us that we could not overcome and He would also give us a way out, to escape this temptation if we wanted to, we covered that a moment ago.
Let’s look at the word abomination in the Hebrew and see if the thoughts of our Father are imparted in them…
✡ Abomination__OT:8441 tow`ebah (to-ay-baw'); or to`ebah (to-ay-baw'); feminine active participle of OT:8581; properly, something disgusting (morally), i.e. (as noun) an abhorrence; especially idolatry or (concretely) an idol:
✡ Abomination__OT:6292 pigguwl (pig-gool'); or piggul (pig-gool'); from an unused root meaning to stink; properly, fetid, i.e. (figuratively) unclean (ceremonially):
✡ Abomination__OT:8251 shiqquwts (shik-koots'); or shiqquts (shik-koots'); from OT:8262; disgusting, i.e. filthy; especially idolatrous or (concretely) an idol:
What was the punishment for this sin? It wasn’t a slap on the wrist, it was total destruction of all human beings in these cities:
Genesis 19:24 Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven;
Genesis 19:25 And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground. KJV
This is quite a punishment! Total destruction. So it would seem, from the fierceness of the annihilation, that our Father does not like it when we go against the acts which He deems to be natural. Father did this destruction as an example to us by the words:
Jude 7….are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. KJV
That whosoever would do these things will suffer eternal fire. Doesn’t say anything about those with genetic aberrations excepted.
Also, in 2nd Peter, we have this as far as this being an example…
2nd Peter 2:6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; KJV
And as far as not doing these unspeakable acts by resisting temptation…
2nd Peter 2:9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: KJV
Father will indeed give us a way out if we only look toward Him.
Jude:8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.
They even defile their flesh in their dreams.
Jude:9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.
What distinguishes Michael from other angels is that he is an eternal angel, not one created among the billions that Father created for His pleasure in the beginning. He will never have to come through this life through the womb of a woman.
We know very little about the entities that our Father has around Himself constantly. There is another archangel of equal position named Gabriel. This archangel seems to carry special messages from Him, as he did when he told Mary that she would give birth to the Messiah.
I like to think of Michael and Gabriel as Father’s lieutenants. They are His strong arm, His enforcers if you will. The two cherubim mentioned guarded the Mercy Seat and the Zoon were four in number and guarded His Throne.
But it seems from the tone of verse 9 that the Devil, Satan, had considerable power himself because Michael would not go head to head with him, but instead said the Lord rebuke thee, thus passing off any confrontation between these two and handing it over to our Father.
Why is it that Satan would want to know the whereabouts of Moses’ body? If he could take possession of it he essentially would have control of the Law, figuratively speaking, and that would be a prized trophy for him.
No one but the Father Himself knows what happened to Moses’ body after his death.
Jude:10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.
There are many things that make the book of Jude and the book of 2nd Peter so very closely related to each other. We can best understand this verse 10 by reading 2nd Peter 2:13 where it speaks of the ungodly that lust after the flesh and are unclean.
2nd Peter 2:13 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you; KJV
They are presumptuous and ridicule and despise government or higher authority of any sort. As natural beasts or animals, speak vile of the things they don’t understand, mainly the spiritual, and will die in their own corruption.
Let's take the words as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Do we not see this almost on a daily basis in this country right now? There is no living together, there is no tolerance for others today. Differences of opinion usually turns into riots in the street.
Thugs walking down the sidewalk and sucker-punching an unsuspecting person, knocking them down to the ground, many with facial bones broken and head concussions.
Throwing acid in the faces of women who are just going about doing the normal things of their day, grotesquely maimed for life and that's just on the outside. What about the emotional damage that they will have to live with for the rest of their life.
Our police officers are being assassinated in their patrol cars as they sit on watch. Shot from an ambush position by cowards. Murders in Chicago and Baltimore higher than they've ever been. This is America but we are looking like a third-world country more and more as each week goes by.
Illegal criminals being shielded by so-called sanctuary cities, turned loose on our streets again before ICE can come in and verify them. And for what purpose? Here you go...
"Sanctuary Cities Targeted by Trump Receive Billions in Federal Funds"
MONEY . Over 100 cities receiving 27 BILLION dollars from the Feds last year alone. That's our tax dollar.
North Korea threatening nuclear attack in the waters around Guam. NUCLEAR ATTACK, for heavens sake. In this day and time. Lawlessness runs rampant across this country today and the politicians in Washington sit in their mahogany offices, in their thousand-dollar suits, COMPLETELY separated and protected from the rest of the country. Fighting our President every step of the way on every good thing that he accomplishes.
It gets harder and harder to differentiate this country from other countries run by thugs, controlling by violence.
Muslim terrorists, with bandannas covering their faces, murdering Christians around the world, hiding the cowards that they are.
You better get your head out of that dark place on your body and face reality. The Lord is not going to put up with this much longer.
"What does it take to bring the Lord back?"
You're witnessing it every day. In spades. It really hurts me to see my beloved country in this condition and there are millions and millions of people that feel the same way. Why don't we riot in the streets to protest? Because we're too busy working to provide for our families, trying to have a life that's just a little bit better.
Loving and serving our gracious Father, trying to obey HIS laws, living our lives to please Him and not mammon.
Jude: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 Core.
Them are the cursed children from the previous verse. Why would it mention Cain? Not that he was the first murderer but that He despised everything that was good; having a tremendous hate of all that is holy, namely our Father.
And why would he be that way? Because he was the son of Satan, the fruit of the sexual act of intercourse with Eve after he wholly seduced her in the Garden.
Being hated and despised by our Father, their recourse was to lust for worldly possessions, much like the preachers that preach for money and not for the salvation of the souls of their congregation, bringing in heretical teachings that are contrary to our Father’s Word:
2nd Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. KJV
Leading souls away from the love of our Father and straight towards the gates of hell.
What is this Core? Core was an Israelite and this is the only place where his name is mentioned but he must have been known to those at the time and preached for money as did those preachers that followed Balaam.
It’s interesting that the root word for Core means to be bald, as shaving ones’ head was an act of humility:
✡ Root Word__Core_ OT:7139 qarach (kaw-rakh'); a primitive root; to depilate:
Depilate means to make oneself bald. No doubt, we get our word depilatory from here, as that is what women use today to remove unwanted hair from various parts of their body.
Jude:12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;
This word spots is usually translated as blemishes of corruption, using the phrase..
”Their spot is not our spot”,
but that’s not what this word refers to but rather unseen rocks, using Satan as the antithesis of our Lord.
Feasts of charity are love-fests..
✡ Charity__NT:26 agape (ag-ah'-pay); from NT:25; love, i.e. affection or benevolence; specially (plural) a love-feast: KJV - (feast of) charity ([-ably]), dear, love.
They come into the congregation, back-slapping, quoting Scripture, praising everyone but it’s all emptiness. They are worthless, hot air spewing from their mouths, leading those who love the Lord into the arms of Satan, all under the guise of religion.
And the congregation, ignorant of the Scripture, coming here to be taught, don’t realize that the worthless words of these people will confuse them. They don’t know enough about the Bible to be able to tell them that they’re wrong.
The only fruit they produce is for Satan. They don’t tend to the flock, they tend to themselves.
Twice dead, not only are they clouds without rain, meaning that the rain is supposed to nourish the early crop, as the words found in the Scriptures are supposed to do, but secondly, there is no latter rain either and all you end up with is spiritual dryness, spiritual drought. No fruit at all.
Jude:13 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.
Wandering stars puts me in mind of these TV preachers, shining before the cameras, all smiles and exuberance, telling the crowd how great they can be, that our Father wants them to be rich in the glories of the world, only to fade away after their fiery sermons have burnt themselves out.
The people being the same way. They show up, listening to the music that pumps them up, give them a fiery sermon and when they go home and get up the next morning, the fire from the day before is gone, there are no residual blessings or satisfaction because it was all emptiness from the git-go and they plod through the week, looking forward to that next spiritual jolt.
The spiritual bloom they were promised on Sunday doesn’t surface on Monday and the spiritual junkies that they are, they become depressed at the sameness of their lives and they spiritually wander about, wondering how it all became nothing, the promises never fulfilled.
This doesn’t happen when you truly seek out the Lord. When you get down on your knees and humble yourself before Him, that’s when the Holy Spirit has something to work with. When you accept the fact that you are nothing to start with, only then can the Spirit begin to work within you.
If you go before the Lord standing proud and righteous, demanding fulfillment of His promises and you don’t even know what those promises are, you’re just wasting your time. And His.
Jude:14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,
Enoch was so pleasing to our Father, by what he preached, that He took him lock, stock and barrel, earthly body, soul and spirit, without him ever experiencing a physical death. From verse 14 here, he obviously preached on the return of the Lord Jesus Christ, coming with thousands of His saints.
Revelation brings that out to us…
Revelation 5:11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; KJV
There's a lot of good souls under our Father's altar today, just waiting for this all to be over so that we can transition into the next phase of our Father's Plan, the Millennium and then the eternity.
Jude:15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.
Notice that the word ungodly is repeated four times here. Ungodly means the absence of the fear of God or anything that is sacred.
Convince means to convict and bring to judgment.
Ungodly sinners doesn’t mean just plain, ordinary sinners but those that truly despise our Father.
Jude:16 These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage.
Just a total disregard of anything holy and sacred.
Jude:17 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;
Remember what they preached.
Jude:18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.
Where is that written? In 2nd Peter again:
2nd Peter 3:3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
2nd Peter 3:4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. KJV
When was the last time you heard some preacher tell you to get your act together because we are close to the time of our Lord’s return?
I have. It came from a man dressed in shabby clothes, looking like he hadn’t bathed in weeks, and he stood on a corner in downtown Atlanta, across from Central Park. And people would cross over to the other side of the street rather than walk by him on the sidewalk.
They not only scoffed and scorned him, they were afraid of him. Not wanting his filthy hands touching their designer clothes.
Does it take a man like this to preach the true Word of God? Apparently. Those guys in thousand-dollar suits don’t seem to want to do it.
Who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. Homosexualism is not hidden behind closed doors anymore. It’s everywhere you look. They are brazen, in your face, visually assaulting people with their lifestyle. Want to take the kids to Disneyworld in Orlando on your next vacation? Better consult their schedule first:

They prance, they dance, they kiss each other publicly, they fondle each other publicly, they walk with tinkling bells on their feet as did female prostitutes of old:
Isaiah 3:16 Moreover the Lord saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet:
Isaiah 3:17 Therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the Lord will discover their secret parts. KJV
Would you want to take your children or grandchildren there and have them see that?
It’s not civil rights or equal rights, it’s an abomination to any God-fearing human being that loves the Lord. And should we be surprised? Better not. Our Lord said that it would be like this in the end days..
Matthew 24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. KJV
Luke 17:27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
Luke 17:28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
Luke 17:29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. KJV
If they had studied the Bible on your own they would know these things. Instead, they listen to some prosperity preacher tell then how great they can be in their earthly body when Father says we all are as animal dung while in these bodies.
“Well, He’s the one that put me here in this body!”
Yeah, He did, but He also gave you a book of instructions telling you how to tame these kinds of desires and live a Godly life. Don’t blame it on Him.
Jude:19 These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.
There is no Holy Spirit in people who do these things. Not my words, our Father’s words.
Jude:20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
Now Jude begins to speak to those that do try to live according to His instructions and laws.
Jude:21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
Mercy and grace are something we need a ton of but to keep yourself in the love of our Father you have to get close to Him, as close as a human being can get and you do that through a number of ways. You pray to Him, open your heart, speak to Him as you would a person sitting in front of you.
Reciting prayers from a book or those that you learned from childhood do nothing because they’re robotic. The exception there being the Lord’s Prayer, beginning with Matthew 6:9.
Tell Him what made you angry that day, anger or wrath is one of the seven deadly sins, so confess to it, explain to Him why you were angry. Talk to Him as though He was sitting right in front of you.
Read and study the Scriptures, keep Him in your mind throughout the day, as much as possible without distracting yourself as you do your job or cook meals or whatever.
Worst of all, don’t pray for earthly things. He will give you those things down the road but only after He sees that you’re sincere in establishing a close relationship with Him. I’ve always hated the words “personal Savior”, I guess because it’s too commercially religious, much like a slogan, as it seems that’s what every preacher says to someone who might be new to the experience.
I’ll give you a good hint on praying to the Father and having Him listen to you…never pray for yourself, pray for someone else. Ask that He blesses them and not you, but do it from the heart, not from a contrived idea to get close to Him.
He knows your thoughts, you can’t feed Him a lot of nonsense. Be sincere.
Jude:22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:
Have compassion for other people but be sincere.
Jude:23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
Spotted by sin which Father hates most of all.
Jude:24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
He is able to keep you from falling into sin, being overtaken by temptation.
Jude:25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen. KJV
Our Father would love very much for each and every one of His children to make it into the eternity but of course, many will not. The world is full of too many temptations for some to overcome but do your best and let the chips fall as they may.
You won’t ever hear a sermon in church on sexual intercourse and I can understand that, I don’t fault that, but sex makes up a very big slice of our lives, even after you reach old age.
I hope that you’ve noticed that two of the subjects here in Jude had to do with sexual intercourse: the fallen angels leaving heaven and coming down to seduce women, which is something they could have done after they came into this life, through a mother’s womb, but they chose to disobey the law instead.
The other subject was the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah, the abomination of men with men and women with women. Not that it’s in this book of Jude but there’s also a verse or two about not having sex with animals:
Exodus 22:19___Leviticus 18:23 and 20:15-16___Deuteronomy 27:21.
Bestiality is probably considered more offensive than homosexualism and lesbianism.
It’s sad to understand that the beautiful act of copulation, whose sole purpose was to produce children, thus fulfilling the command to replenish the earth, has been corrupted into some of the vilest acts performed by mankind.
Throughout the Old Testament, the predominant sin committed by Israel was the worshipping of idols, many of which were shaped like the male appendage, an Asherah. What were some of the others? Golden pigs, calves, goats and other animals. But sex was the predominant one.
And when the 7000 angels are released with Satan, those perverted acts will begin again, those acts between spiritual and earthly bodies. But, once we’re back in a spiritual body in the Millennium, there will be no acts of copulation again because the good Book says that there will not be any marriages during that time nor in the eternity...
Matthew 22:30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven. KJV
Why? Because the time for replenishing the earth and having children is long past. That ISIS terrorist, strapping on that bomb vest and killing himself and dozens around him, thinking that there will be virgins waiting for him in heaven, waiting to give him pleasure, is sure going to be disappointed.
The signs given to us that tell us that the end of days are close at hand are easy to spot if you just know what to look for. Homosexual acts are prevalent in our society today. You can’t even watch daytime TV without some soap opera having a subplot between two men or two women. Primetime TV is the same. Not only are sitcoms basically stupid in their content, many of them incorporate homosexualism in them.
It affects and confuses our children and that’s very sad because the world is confusing enough without throwing that in as well. Thankfully our time in these earthly bodies is running short and we’ll soon be in a period of time that is closely controlled by our Father.
He will no longer be some entity that we hoped and longed for, He will be present with us, His Elect will be able to speak to Him and go into the Millennial Temple and worship and touch Him.
It’s crucial that you regain control of your spiritual lives and stop playing church because the penalty for not doing so is absence from our Father and our Lord and what a punishment that will be.
It doesn’t have to be that way but it’s up to you.
I hope you enjoyed this book of Jude. God bless.
