JUDE - Christ the Revelation of God`s Word.
The book of Jude gives us a summary of the sixty-four books that have gone before it. This prepares us for the final unveiling of Jesus Christ, whose name is called, `the Word of God.`
The Spirit of God uses ten of the characters, cities and one country from the Pentateuch.
`Adam....Cain...Enoch.....Sodom and Gomorrah, (Abraham & Lot)...Moses....the people out of Egypt (Israel)...the rebellion of Korah....Balaam....`
Principalities and Powers are also named.
`Michael the archangel..`
`angels who did not keep their proper domain,...`
The great truths, titles and teachings of the New Testament are also included.
`The only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ..`
`the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ..`
`the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ..`
`God the Father..`
`the Holy Spirit..`
`save, saved, salvation and Saviour..`
`grace, mercy, peace, faith, love and life eternal,
`power, majesty and glory..`
In contrast to the saints, the word `ungodly` is used six times and they are described by over twenty different figures of speech and are destined for His judgment, condemnation, vengeance and the blackness of darkness forever.
`Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His Holy ones, (angels) to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of their ungodly deeds ...` (Jude 14 & 15)
In contrast to these evil fellows we see that the true followers of the faith were looking unto Jesus for His mercy.
`But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. (Jude 20 & 21)
