The writer of this epistle made himself
known that he was the brother of James, this would make him the half-brother of
our Lord Jesus Christ (see Mark 6:3) our Lord’s brothers in the flesh. He
wrote that the letter to those who had been called people who loved God the
Father and kept Jesus Christ to remain in mercy, peace, and love be abundance.
In verse 3 & 4 we see the eagerness to write about the salvation they
share and to exhort them to face for the faith that was once for all entrusted
to God’s holy people. In verse 4, he describes the sin of godless people.
(quotation & citation) These people claimed that God’s grace allowed them
to sin, but made no effort to live under Christ’s lordship.
The writer wants the people to
remember that even God saves the Israelites from slavery in Egypt; He killed
them when they were unbelievers, as well as the angel who disobeyed Him they
were put to prison and chained forever until the final judgement. He also
reminded them of what is the punishment when they involved themselves to sexual
immorality and wickedness like in Sodom and Gomorrah they will also going to
experience the everlasting fire.
Ungodly people are like clouds without rain, autumn
trees without fruits, wild waves of the sea, and wandering stars.
(reword, synonyms) They
pollute their own bodies, reject authorities, and heap abuse on holy angels.
They neglected the warning(s) of God’s
judgment from the Old Testament and the story of the Michael Archangel rather;
they continued doing evil and followed the way of Cain, Balaam and Korah. Jude
emphasize(s or d) on the “Spiritual Emptiness” of their lives and reminds them
that they will take the judgment that they deserve.
Enoch the seventh from Adam and he prophesied that the
Lord judge all people and they’re coming with us the ungodly people. These men
suffered God those who grumblers, fault finders, and flatter spoken against
him. (Pastor Jorie)
However, he reminds the people of God to
remain faithful because, there will be scoffers in the end times who will
divide you, who follow their own natural instincts as they don’t have the Spirit
of the Lord. Rather, God’s people should live by their faith and pray to the
Holy Spirit to remain in God’s love and wait for the mercy of the Lord.
God’s people should show mercy, save more
souls, and love people but hate sins. To God be the glory, honor, and power
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
