The little book of Jude is seldom read, and rarely preached—much to the loss of the Body of Christ. Whereas today many messages and ministries are trumpets giving an uncertain call (1Co 4:8), this small book is a clear call to believers in Jesus Christ to enter the invisible war raging from the beginning of time. In the age-old campaign of Satan against God, the issue is always truth or deception (Joh 8:44–45). Thus, Jude confronts the deceivers of his time with the timeless truth of the good news of life in Christ, and challenges those who have received this life to “contend earnestly [struggle valiantly] for the faith.”

Jude #1

Jude #1

Introduction and premise: How do we contend for the faith? The objective of the faith is a relationship with God. Heb 11:6, "Without faith it is impossible to please God." Rom 10:14-17 Faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of God. Jud 1-4; the believer is "called" through the Gospel, "sanctified" by the work of the Holy Spirit--set apart to God as His personal possession; "preserved" = the eternal security of the believer; 2Pe 1:21; 1Co 2:14; 2Ti 3:16; Mat 4:4; The five aspects of the Inerrancy of Scripture: Revelation, Inspiration, Preservation, Illumination, and Interpretation
