Jude 1:25-Wisdom And Salvation Only Comes Through God

jude

25 to God our Savior, who alone is wise, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever. Amen. (WEB)

“to God our Savior, who alone is wise” True wisdom, not the one which comes from the world [foolishness], is solely supplied by God. There is only one Savior, God who was substantiated in the person of Jesus Christ [John 1:1, 14; John 20:28]. 

Jude 1:24-God Will Keep You From Falling Away

jude

24 Now to him who is able to keep them from stumbling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory in great joy

“Now to him who is able to keep them from stumbling” God Himself keeps those who are His from abandoning Him through His mighty power. He does this by convicting us when we commit sin and stray from his presence. 

“to present you faultless” The word faultless means to be without sin [being forgiven]. But, according to the context, it is in reference to being faithful to the end and not giving up on one’s faith in Jesus Christ. 

 

Jude 1:23-Saving People From Hell

jude

23 and some save, snatching them out of the fire with fear, hating even the clothing stained by the flesh. 

“save others by snatching them out of the fire” The words “snatching them out” gives the image that they are in it already. That is the urgency of those who don’t have Christ Jesus, for they are headed to a place of torment with flames.

The word “fear” warns us to be cautious that when we are confronting a person to evangelize, to make sure that we are the one influencing him to Christ and not the other way around [influencing us to their lifestyle] or else we can fall into the same trap he has fallen into. 

The word “hating” is not directed to the person but to how he is living. The life that one chooses will reveal if they have accepted Jesus as their Lord or have chosen Satan as their god through money, sexual immorality, and all kinds of the lust of the flesh.
