Truth and Action of the Book of Jude in the Spirit Filled Life Bible
Growing in Godliness
There have always been those who attempt to divert God’s people from their primary purpose. Whether angels or people, God knows how to deal with the rebellious, but believers are warned not to participate with any such persons. The wicked appeal to the lusts of the eye, lust of the flesh, and to inordinate pride. They will pretend to love God, appear to do good works, but on close examination they are as fruitless as the fig tree that Jesus cursed. The wise will be able to identify those whose object is to be god, rather than to serve God. It will take a deeply spiritual heart to know how to reach any who are deep into evil without being contaminated – hating the sin but still loving the sinner.
Contend strongly for biblical faith. Accept no form of alteration.
Reject anyone who teaches that grace is “God’s premission to sin.” understand that such a teaching is godlessness.
Beware of teachers whose behavior or teaching includes such things as:
(1) licentious behavior
(2) disrespect or rejection of authority
(3) greed or love of money
(4) empty promises
(5) straying from biblical truth
(6) grumbling and complaining
(7) critical, divisive, and destructive behavior
(8) motivation by personal gain
(10) flattery of others when it is to his or her advantage
Pray continuously in the Spirit for self-edification and the building up of your faith. Persist in loving attitudes and behavior through the Holy Spirit.
Use wisdom and discernment when dealing with those who are in error or in sin.
Cultivating Dynamic Devotion
We fully acknowledge that only by the working and grace of God is anyone able to come joyfully into His presence in blameless worship. He is the lawful Ruler of every life. Our God is King of the universe. How blessed we are to serve Him!
Trust in God’s ability to bring you blameless into His presence.
It is very important to be in God’s presences always the best way to do that is by prayer and worship it is also very important to receive the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is our counselor, our comforter, our helper, our guide, He reminds us, He is our teacher, He is always with us, and He intercedes and advocates for us. We need the Holy Spirit to keep us from falling for false teachers and we need Him more now than ever. There is more false teachers now than ever before and the Bible says that in the end times that even the elect will be deceived if possible (Mark 13:22) that’s why it’s so important to receive the Holy Spirit so that you won’t be deceived. In the times we are living in right now it is important that we have wisdom and discernment because these false teachers can be very convincing and we need to know the word of God to know what is false and what is truth. So I plead with you if you don’t know Jesus as your savior then ask Him into your heart and if you know Jesus but don’t have the Holy Spirit then ask God to send Him to you so that you won’t be deceived. May the peace of God be on you today and everyday.
