In Tha Same Way Tha Sun Warms Ya With His Mercy, Warm Others With Mercy

In Tha Same Way Tha Sun Warms Ya With His Mercy, Warm Others With Mercy

Keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life. – Jude 21 (Jude 20-25)

Dear mates, build yerself up in yer most holy faith and pray in tha Holy Spirit of Truth at all times. Keep yerself in Skipper’s love. If ya committed a grievous offense, turn towards tha Sun, confess what ya done, ask fer his fergivness and wait fer tha mercy of tha Sun ter wrap itself around ya like a heavy wool coat.

In tha same way tha Sun warms ya with his mercy, warm others with mercy—especially them with doubt. If they doubt tha Sun ever was: show mercy. If they doubt Skipper be real: show mercy. If they doubt Skipper’s Code of Conduct be his commands fer how ter carry yerself as one in his crew: show mercy.

By showing mercy towards them who doubt, ya may snatch a feller or two from that eternal fire than never ends. Thank on it this way: mercy be a long, sturdy rope ya kin toss ter a body that be floundering in tha sea. Tha more mercy ropes ya kin toss, tha better odds a feller might have ter grab a holt and be saved.

But when ya tossing them ropes of mercy ter them floundering about, do so with fear so as not ter slip and fall overboard yerself. Many a crew member has jumped in ter tha sea ter save a mate only ter get swept away by currents of sin.

Skipper be able ter keep ya from falling, only it be on ya ter be alert and watch yer stance and steps.

To tha only Skipper thar be and ter tha Sun, tha only Savior thar ever ‘ill be, a hearty salute. As crew and mates we give all respect, honor, and praise, ‘cause Skip and his Sun be full of all glory majesty, authority, and power. 

In Tha Last Days Thar ‘ill Be Scoffers and Mockers

Such false teachers pervert tha grace of Skipper.

In Tha Last Days and Always Thar ‘ill Be Scoffers and Mockers

“In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires.” – Jude 18 (Jude 11-19)

In tha last days, them last times, thar ‘ill be scoffers. Fellers filled with lust ‘ill follow thar own ungodly, selfish desires. Simon Peter warned ‘bout such mockers when he wrote: “In the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires.” So it not just be tha earthly brother of tha Sun, Jude, who says such things, but them who walked and talked and learned from tha Sun while he be on earth.

Such false teachers pervert tha grace of Skipper.

Fellers like these be selfish and follow tha way of Cain and look out fer thar own self, giving no thought ter how thar egregious  behavior corrupts others.

They be lovers of money and follow tha way and teachings of Balaam, tempting others ter commit sexual sin. Tha Sun said as much when he wrote to some leaders of a church and warned: “I hold this against you. You hold to the teachings of Balaam and entice others to commit sexual immorality and eat food sacrificed to idols.” (Revelation of Christ 2:14)

Moses himself warned ‘bout such reprobates: “These women were the ones who followed Balaam’s advice and were the means of turning the Israelites away from the Lord. ” (Numbers 31:16)

Them be harsh words, but Skipper takes a tough stand on sexual sin.

Fellers like these be blemishes when tha crew gathers fer instruction, fellership, and fer singings songs and praising Skipper. They feed themselves first and last. Like a rabid dog, they foam at the mouth. Thar words be muddy muck and tha blackest darkness be reserved fer such rascals.

Fellers like these be ungodly good-fer-nothing scoundrels, who commit ungodly acts in ungodly ways and use harsh words against them who stand with Skipper and his words of instruction. Fellers like these be ungodly sinners who speak vile words against Skipper.

Fellers like these be grumblers, finding fault with ever thing and ever one who sticks ter Skippers Code of Conduct. Instead of following tha Sun, as they claim they be doing, they set a course fer their own evil desires. They boast ‘bout themselves.

Fellers like these flatter others fer thar own advantage, but they do not stick ter Skipper’s Code of Conduct and they don’ ‘ave Skipper’s Holy Spirit of Truth in ’em, ya may lay ter that.

Give a wide berth ter such rogues in tha same way ya might when rounding a headland, else ya may wreck yer faith on thar reefs of treachery.

Contend Earnestly Fer Yer Faith and Skip ‘ill Bring It Ter Fulfillment, Ya May Lay Ter That

Contend Earnestly Fer Yer Faith and Skip ‘ill Bring It Ter Fulfillment, Ya May Lay Ter That

Dear friends, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith that was once for all time handed down to the saints.- Jude 3 (Jude 3:3-6)

Dear mates, I urge ya ter contend fer tha faith, fer godless men ‘ave secretly snuck aboard and be amongst ya. I don’ know thar names, but I hear things. Terrible things. Stuff like they be wanting ter change tha grace of Skipper’s manner of looking past an offense inter a license fer behavior and conduct that be crude and offensive and contrary ter tha moral standards of upright folk.

Such behavior not be appropriate fer men in Skip’s crew, of that ya kin be sure. They shut thar eyes ter tha Sun, blotting out his light, so they can carry on in thar vile ways.

Ne’er ferget that in tha old days Skipper delivered his crew out of slavery in Egypt as an example of how he whar ter rescue all mankind from tha fetters of sin. ‘Course later Skipper had ter do away with tha whole lot on account of they refused ter believe his word.

Contend fer tha faith with perseverance. Dogged resolve be endurance combined with tha absolute assurance and certainty that what we be looking fer be going ter happen. If Skip says he ‘ill do a thing, ya kin set a heading that it’ll come ter pass.

Ever hope and dream ‘ill be fulfilled if it be noble and of Skipper. Contend earnestly fer yer faith and Skip ‘ill bring it ter fulfillment, ya may lay ter that.

Godless Men Change the Grace of Our God Into a License for Immorality

Jude

Godless Men Change the Grace of Our God Into a License for ImmoralityDear friends, certain men whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are godless men who change the grace of our God into a license for immorality and oppose Jesus Christ, our only Sovereign Lord. Jude 4

These men are shepherds who feed only themselves. They follow the way of Cain. They rush for profit in Balaam’s error. Jude 11

“Nevertheless, I have a few things against you,” Jesus said. “You have people who hold to the teachings of Balaam, who taught Balak to entice  the Israelites to sin by committing sexual immorality and eating food sacrificed to idols. I will soon come to you and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.” Revelation 2:14-16

For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any double-edge sword. It penetrates to dividing soul and spirit, joint and marrow. It judges thought and attitudes of the heart. Hebrew 4:12

These dreamers who pollute themselves have been destroyed in Korah’s rebellion.

Korah became insolent and rose up against Moses. 250 well-known community leaders came as a group to oppose Moses and Aaron. They said, “You have gone too far! The whole community is holy, every one of them. The Lord is with them. Why then do YOU set yourself above the Lord’s assembly?”

Then the Lord said to Moses and Aaron; “Separate yourselves from this assembly so I can put an end to them at once.” As soon as Moses finished saying all this the ground under him split apart and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed Korah, his men, their households, and all their possessions. They went down alive into the grave with everything they owned. And the earth closed over them. Numbers 16

Enoch prophesied about these men: “The Lord is coming to judge everyone and to convict all the ungodly of all the ungodly acts they have done in ungodly ways. These men boasts about themselves for their own advantage. Jude 14-16

A missionary is someone in whom the Holy Spirit has brought about this realization: “You are not your own.” The Holy Spirit interprets and explains the nature of Jesus to me to make me one with my Lord. The desire that comes into a disciple is not one of doing anything for Jesus, but of being a perfect delight to Him. Oswald Chambers

Contend For the Faith Once for All

Jude 1

Contend For the Faith Once for AllContend for the faith once for all. Jude 1:3

The Lord delivered his people out of Egypt, but later destroyed those who did not believe. Jude 1:5

The Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah due to their immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire. Jude 1:7

Those dreamers pollute their own bodies, reject authority, and slander celestial beings. Jude 1:8

Such men speak abusively against whatever they do not understand. Jude 1:10

What things they do understand, by instinct, like unreasoning animals — those are the things that destroy them. Jude 1:10

We are destined to holiness. Never tolerate any practice that is not in keeping with a holy God. He created us to be holy. Oswald Chambers
