Summary, Part 2 4. LESSONS WE CAN TAKE FROM THIS: a. we are likewise bondservants, b. our servant status to Him is greater than all our other relations on earth, c. we are to assemble with orthodox brethren. B. THE READERS: TO WHOM DID JUDE WRITE? [28:20]. Generally, the church at large. But specifically, his Old Testament references suggest that he had Jewish Christians in view. 1. THEIR VOCATION: THEY ARE âTHE CALLEDâ [30:45]. Though irresistible for the elect, the call is resisted by the unelect. 2. THEIR AFFECTION: THEY ARE âBELOVED IN GOD THE FATHERâ [39:06]. Jer 31:3 â the cause of Godâs election before time and the effect of His calling in time. It has no end. He loves His believers as much as He loves His Song (Jn 17:22). 1 Jn 3:1 â this love led to our adoption into His family. Perhaps most surprisingly, consider what we are that God loves us this much. 3. THEIR PRESERVATION: THEY ARE âKEPT FOR JESUS CHRISTâ [44:30]. He keeps us for the sake of His Son (Jn 10:28-29, 17:11-12).
Summary, Part 1 As early as Paulâs age, the threat of false doctrine was real. I. THE WRITER AND HIS READERS [starting at 7:31 of the audio]. A. THE WRITER HIMSELF: WHO IS JUDE? 1. HIS NAME: âJUDEâ. Jude is the English variant for the Hebrew âJudasâ. Aside from Iscariot, there are five other men named Judas in the New Testament. The author of this book is most likely the brother of James (Mk 15:40). But who is James? There are five men named James in the New Testament. The one in view is most likely the one mentioned in Mk 13:55: Jesusâ half-brother. 2. HIS OFFICE: HE IS âA BONDSERVANT OF CHRISTâ [16:07]. A bondservant is one who does the will of his master. Jude did so in three ways: as one sustained by grace in all his needs, as a redeemed sinner, and as a servant to the church, including his contribution to the canon. Also note his humility: he never gloried in his biological relation to the Lord, but instead in his spiritual standing because of Him. 3. HIS RELATION: HE IS THE âBROTHER OF JAMESâ [21:04]. He holds to the same doctrine as his brother, and to not get himself confused with other Judases, especially Iscariot.

Well, no prof. would commute that distance. Or at least fro most of them.
It has occurred to me that these cities with low Bible reading scores, are in areas of high Catholic concentration. Catholics and Mormons probably too aren't to delve deeply into Scriptures anyway, q.v.,
Mike Gendron wrote: Two friends recently returned from a Catholic Apologetics Conference where they learned how to defend and explain the Catholic faith. Upon their return they were invited to an evangelical Bible Study but declined, saying that only the Magisterium of the Catholic Church can interpret the Bible accurately. Wow! What a way to maintain control over Catholics! Tell them no one else has the authority to interpret Scripture except their own Bishops.
Once this "Christian" woman and others learns what this means - âAnd the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poisonâ (James 3:6,8), she and others will speak words that tend to life. If she knows how men think, then she should consider the flames from expressing her own thoughts about this. You certainly can't prohibit women from wearing them. So why bring up the matter? And you can't stop men from looking.
Heavens rend for Godâs honour! This sermon makes good differentiation between humanistic revivals and true revival when God comes down in sanctification by the sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ turning the disobedient to the wisdom of the just. Thank you, pastor.
Recommended My 15 year old son Mark has been following your Philippians series, and suggested that I ought to listen to this one. Glad I did. We praise God for the power and clarity of His Word. Bill
God saves the elect of God who believe. But you digress.
Christ is the propitiation for the sins of the whole world. This is easily understood. But you would like to rewrite the Spirit inspired words into 'Christ is the propitiation for the sins of a small remnant known as the elect'. This is not good. How did you get there?
'He died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.'
Or, in the Good News version:-
'He died for all, so that those who live should no longer live for themselves, but only for him who died and was raised to life for their sake.'
This is the mystery explained, because he 'died for all', but not all are saved, because not all believe. But you want to change the Bible to say 'He died for all the elect..' This is not good, you must think more.
Brother Frank I found a position that quinary and gang can agree with and put the discussion to rest
-Christ suffered âfor the redemption of mankindâ or âfor the salvation of the human race.â
-He ordained that Christ should be the Redeemer, who would deliver the lost race of man from ruin.
-When he says âthe sin of the world,â he extends this kindness indiscriminately to the whole human race
-He was condemned for our sinsâŚto expiate all sins.
-By Christâs death âall the sins of the world have been expiated.â God commends to us the salvation of all men without exception, even as Christ suffered for the sins of the whole world. Wipe away the iniquities of the world.69
-Burdened with the sins of the whole world... On him was laid the guilt of the whole world. Our Lord Jesus was offered to all the worldâŚsuffered for all.
-He must be the Redeemer of the world...God is satisfied and appeased, for he bore all the wickednesses and all the iniquities of the world.
-Christ was there in the place of all sinners.
There you go, God richest blessing to you brother.
Great Sermon! what confuses me about the bible is that why are some books meant to be taken literally and others are not meant to be taken literally? Why do we take Matthew literally and dont take Revelation literally?
