An interview with Jude, the half brother of Jesus.
Friday August 15th, 2003
Ladies and Gentlemen, today, I will let you eavesdrop so to speak on an interview between myself as the interviewer and the Lord's half brother Jude as the interviewed. Now without further ado, let me start.
Me: First, my dear brother in the Lord, would you be so kind as to introduce yourself?
Jude: I am Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called:
Me: Jude, would you have anything you would like to say to our brothers and sisters in the Lord who will be reading this interview?
Jude: Yes, Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied.
Me: Tell me Jude, what do you think about the Episcopalians, the United Church of Christ and certain other liberal so called Christian churches ordaining homosexuals, making them bishops, and even joining homosexuals in marriage?
Jude: Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
Me: Jude, should we be concerned or even worried about this turning towards the left and acceptance of sodomites as preachers?
Jude: I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not. And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
Me: Jude how dangerous is it for those seeking the truth of the Lord to turn to those who are and those who ordain homosexuals?
Jude: Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.
Jude: Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, "The Lord rebuke thee."
Jude: But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. They are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.
Me: What you're saying sounds familiar, can you help me remember where else we have been warned of the evil doers?
Jude: And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of His saints, to execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him. They are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage.
Me: Jude, what about us? What about us that feel like Elijah when he cried out to God saying that he was the only one left because he feared that there were so few left who preached the one and only God?
Jude: But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.
Me: How will we know them? Will they all be homosexuals or are there other signs to warn us?
Jude: These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.
Me: Jude, what should we do?
Jude: But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
Me: Jude, I want to thank you for taking the time to be with me today. Could you take a minute and ask a special blessing upon all who are Saved? All who are solid Born Again washed in the blood of your half brother, the Lord Jesus, the Christ?
Jude: I would love to. Now unto Him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever.
Did I really get to interview the Lord's half brother Jude? Of course not, Jude went to be with the Lord some 1874 years before I was born, and never would I pray to anyone other than the Father in heaven above and then only through His holy and spotless Son, our Lord and our Saviour Christ Jesus. But, as you read my 'interview' everything in bold is from the next to the last book in the Bible, the book written to us by Jude.
Jude's warning against sin laden devil serving men and women who pose as Christian preachers, leading millions astray is just as valid today as it was in 60AD when he penned this letter. Maybe even more valid.
The Lord our God Christ Jesus be with and help you all. May He bless you, protect you and forgive your sins. Amen
Lord God Creator of all things, we give Thee thanks for giving us the second chance we do not deserve. We thank Thee Lord for our brave troops who are at this very instant freeing and liberating people through out the kingdom of satan. Lord we beseech Thee that Thou would send to our men a Paul, to preach Your word to them while they go to free those held captive by the forces of evil. Touch the Presidents heart Lord, lead him in a direction to send evangelist to our troops, give him the strength Lord to serve You, to use his office, that You have entrusted him with, as Commander in Chief to authorize and send solid evangelical Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian preachers to bring the Word of God to our troops, giving them both reason to fight and the Lord's plan of salvation. And put the end of abortion at the top of his agenda.
Lord Jesus, it is in Thy Sacred and Holy Name I pray, Amen.
red are those quotes of God the Son, the Lord Jesus and the words in purple are those qoutes spoken directly by God the Father and the words in this sickly greenish color are of satan. But all of the Bible is spoken by God and should be viewed as God's handbook for us to run our lives by 2 Timothy 3:16.
God blessed America when she feared Him, now it appears, she may face His wrath.
