The Coming of the Lord

How often do you think about the coming of the Lord? Until recently, it wasn't something that crossed my mind. At the end of last year, I read the book of Revelation and quasi-studied it. I find myself there again. The book frightened me as a kid; the idea of the anti-Christ, armageddon, wars, and... Continue Reading →

End-Times Epicenter

Growing up in church during the late nineties and early two-thousands, I was simultaneously terrified of the end-times yet fascinated by the movies produced by Cloud Ten Pictures. If you’ve never seen a great low-quality end-times film, I highly recommend it; some of my favorites are; Left Behind, Judgement, Vanished, and The Mark. Last year... Continue Reading →

Guards Against Apostasy (Jude 1:20-25)

As we come to the end of the book of Jude, we switch gears from recognizing and dealing with false teachers and their teaching, and we are given instructions on staying safe from apostasy and rescuing others from the grips of falsehood. Jude 1:20-25 ESV "But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith... Continue Reading →

A Final Word on Apostasy (Jude 1:17-19)

In the last four weeks, we have covered various aspects of recognizing false teachers and false teaching. Even though Jude has spent his entire letter on this topic, he also reminds his readers of what the apostles said on the subject. Jude 1:17-19 ESV "But you must remember, beloved, the predictions of the apostles of our... Continue Reading →

Let Their Judgment Serve as Your Warning (Jude 1:14-16)

In the last post of the Jude series, we looked at the profile of a false teacher. This week we will look at two verses that explain why false teachers will face judgment at the end of time. Jude 1:14-16 ESV "It was also about these that Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied, saying, “Behold, the Lord... Continue Reading →

Profile of a False Teacher (Jude 1:9-13)

Have you ever looked at someone and just knew something was off? When you found out what did the thought of I KNEW IT! Come out of your mouth embarrassingly. Or worse, did you think someone was terrific, only to find out something else. Nothing is worse than finding out someone isn’t who they seem... Continue Reading →

Keep your head on the swivel (Jude 1:4-8)

If a verse in the Bible describes the Church today, it is the first verse of this week’s text. Jude 1:4 NKJV "For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and...

Contending for The Faith (Jude 1:1-3)

When I look at America today, it is shocking to see what is going on in our nation. From the promotion of things of the vilest sort to corruption in all levels of leadership, the state of the government can seem hopeless. But this post is not about that. As shocking as the state of... Continue Reading →
