"What to Do"

“What to Do”

But you, dear friends, as you build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the Love of God, expecting the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ for eternal life. Jude 1:20-23

Jude, the brother of James, and half-brother to the Lord Jesus Christ, gives us instructions on what a TRUE BELIEVER in the Lord Jesus Christ should do until the Lord returns. The FIRST instruction is to BUILD UP one’s FAITH, this is done by STUDYING the Word of God, and LIVING in OBEDIENCE to the Word of God. Which will PRESERVE and STRENGTHEN the TRUE BELIEVER’S FAITH in Christ and will give them the benefit of experiencing the LOVE of God as contrasted to the WRATH of God, which is poured out on those who are LIVING in DISOBEDIENCE to God’s Word.

The SECOND instruction is PRAYING in the HOLY SPIRIT, this does NOT refer to speaking in an UNKNOWN tongue, but it means to PRAY consistently through the WILL and POWER of the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD, which indwells you. And who will PRAY for you, when you don’t have the words to PRAY. And PRAYING in the NAME of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The THIRD instruction is to KEEP yourself in the LOVE of GOD, this indicates that the TRUE BELIEVER should LIVE by FAITH and in OBEDIENCE to God, in order to receive the FULL EXTENT of GOD’S UNFAILING LOVE, His ABUNDANT MERCY and His AMAZING GRACE. As opposed to His WRATH and CONDEMNATION, which is the END RESULT of those who LIVE in DISOBEDIENCE to Him and His Word. Those who CONTINUALLY REJECT SALVATION through His SON, Jesus Christ.

The FOURTH instruction is to EXPECT the MERCY of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, which will LEAD us to the consummation of our SALVATION at His RETURN, and we SHOULD do this with EAGER ANTICIPATION, because this will be what ushers in our ETERNAL LIFE in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS. Are you WAITING with EAGER ANTICIPATION for His RETURN? If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to GOD, then you should be TREMBLING with FEAR at the thought of His RETURN. Your destiny will be an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE. However, God is giving you the opportunity NOW, to TURN AWAY FROM YOUR sinful lifestyle and to TURN TO HIM, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART that, Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. Then CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. You MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and LIVE in OBEDIENCE to Him and His Word, and spend your ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!

Mood: hopeful
