JUDE 1:11-19 / BLOG

“What sorrow awaits them! For they follow in the footsteps of Cain, who killed his brother. Like Balaam, they deceive people for money. And like Korah, they perish in their rebellion. When these people eat with you in your fellowship meals commemorating the Lord’s love, they are like dangerous reefs that can shipwreck you. They are like shameless shepherds who care only for themselves. They are like clouds blowing over the land without giving any rain. They are like trees in autumn that are doubly dead, for they bear no fruit and have been pulled up by the roots. They are like wild waves of the sea, churning up the foam of their shameful deeds. They are like wandering stars, doomed forever to blackest darkness. Enoch, who lived in the seventh generation after Adam, prophesied about these people. He said, “Listen! The Lord is coming with countless thousands of his holy ones to execute judgment on the people of the world. He will convict every person of all the ungodly things they have done and for all the insults that ungodly sinners have spoken against him.” These people are grumblers and complainers, living only to satisfy their desires. They brag loudly about themselves, and they flatter others to get what they want. But you, my dear friends, must remember what the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ predicted. They told you that in the last times there would be scoffers whose purpose in life is to satisfy their ungodly desires. These people are the ones who are creating divisions among you. They follow their natural instincts because they do not have God’s Spirit in them.”
‭‭Jude‬ ‭1:11-19‬ ‭NLT‬‬

The ungodly want us to fail, they are our enemy and we must be prepared for war. Jude here is pointing out the history of the Bible and pointing out the ungodly and how they will fail in the eyes of God and will try to make us stumble. So again be bold in the faith, seek truth. Many people don’t seek truth or don’t do anything about their faith and claim that they are Christians. The thing is are they really? Is a Christian just a person who believes and just does whatever? Or a person who is fully devoted to God, a person who is a slave to Christ and gave there life to God? So be careful, be vigilant in your own life. Judes pointing out good examples in the Bible that give us a lot of information. So meditate on what he is saying and pray about it. Be aware of today’s culture, look in your own life and see if you’re a devoted person to God.
