It’s Time to Fight
Jude 1:3-4

Round 1 – Jude wants us to know – All Christians (“Beloved” – Those loved by God), have a common salvation. Ephesians 4:1-6
Round 2 – Jude was compelled by the Holy Spirit to encourage us to contend earnestly for the faith. We must defend Biblical doctrinal truths. 2 Timothy 2:14-26
Round 3 – Jude wants us to know the Good News of Jesus Christ never changes. Only by the grace of God and faith in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus do we have eternal life. Never ending life! Romans 10:17; John 3:16
Round 4 – The enemy is real and we know who he is. The enemy is a creep! He departs from the faith. We must oppose these men and their teachings. 2 Timothy 3:1-5
Round 5 – The enemy fights hard but is marked for destruction. They are ungodly – they leave God out of their lives and will therefore suffer eternal separation from God in hell. Revelation 20:11-15
Round 6 – The enemy perverts the Good News of Jesus and denies this truth. His goal is to take you far away from a love relationship with Jesus Christ.

Are you prepared to fight in love?
Would you recognize false teachings when you hear them?
What is your biggest fear combating false teaching?

Scripture Memory
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:10-12
