Prepared for the Battle (Jude 1-4)
Truth #1 – Begin at the beginning.
-Jude was not ashamed to tell the Church and the world who his King was – Jesus Christ.
Matthew 22:35-40; Romans 1:16
-Jude was not ashamed to tell the Church and the world who his brother was. James was the leader of the Church in Jerusalem.
Acts 4:12; Galatians 2:20; Philippians 2:9-11
Truth #2 – Know your position of strength
-The Christian has been called by God. Salvation is secure when a sinner repents and believes. John 3:16; Romans 6:23
-The Christian has been sanctified (set apart) by God Himself. Believers have a mission – contend for the faith.
Truth #3 -Know your enemy and his tactics.
-Ungodly people will work their way into a local Church to destroy Christians. This is always done from the inside out.
-Ungodly people will always deny the sufficiency of Jesus Christ.
