The Book of Jude is perfect for addressing the heinous spirit of the age today! Whoever was inspired to place it, just before the Book of Revelation, was phenomenally obedient to the Holy Spirit!
Good things come in small packages! The Letter of Jude is only one chapter. Yet its well-crafted forcefulness is unparalleled, when considering the times in which we live.
Jude – literally Judas, which is the Greek form for the Hebrew Judah – warns of “ungodly persons who pervert the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.” (Jude 4)
It’s a primary and common belief today – among Marxists, Communists, leftists and liberals – that there is “Liberty in licentiousness.” And yet the great American poet, Edwin Markham – before he was wrongly replaced by socialist poet Carl Sandburg, through the machinations and wiles of the Chicago Deep State of those days – published for all Americans, “License must die that liberty may live!”
As we keep in mind our day is “As it was in the days of Sodom,” Jude embellishes, “just as Sodom and Gomor’rah and the surrounding cities, which likewise acted immorally and indulged in unnatural lust, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.” (Jude 7)
Marxists and leftists crave power and control. These licentious ones burn churches, imprison pastors, grant state authority of children, above parents; steal billions, routinely lie, and more. Marxism holds to no absolutes, no good and evil, no accountability to God. As Jude said they would, “They reject authority and revile the glorious ones.”
“‘In the last time there will be scoffers, following their own ungodly passions.’ It is these who set up divisions, worldly people, devoid of the Spirit.” (Jude 18-19) Divisions. Today we are seeing “Divide and Conquer” strategies on all levels – as the de-populating eugenicist, genocidal mass murderers, Pfizer and Moderna, follow their unnatural lusts for profiteering billions…
And what is our job as we wait till the Lord appears? “Save some, by snatching them out of the fire….”
Yes. Be assured. The literal fires of Sodom and the fires of hell, surely do await those “worldly people, devoid of the Spirit.”
