Jude; and 2nd & 3rd John:
“Faith Under Assault: the Last Days”
Beloved, although I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints. Jude 3
Most Bible teachers today will acknowledge that it appears we are in “The Last Days” – the time that immediately precedes the Tribulation and the 2nd Coming of the Lord. ONE of the hallmarks of the “end-times” is the rise and prevalence of False Teachers and their False Doctrine. These 3 small Letters written to New Testament era Churches highlight this issue.
Jude: This Letter addresses the danger presented by those who have “crept into the Church” and twisted the New Testament teachings to suit their own sensual needs, and to cover their deeds by the use of False Doctrine.
2nd John: John, greatly concerned for one Church with whom he has a very close relationship, writes with a passionate plea to the believers. Even as he praises them for their progress in the Lord, he warns them about being drawn into “new and progressive ways” that are truly against the Teachings of the Lord as handed-down through the Apostles.
3rd John: This brief Letter is more like a “personal note” from John, the Apostle the Leader of one of the Churches. Without apology, John warns about allowing one man, whom he names, to take a self-serving control over the congregation. This man’s motives and doctrine are an assault upon the faith, and must be stopped.
Interestingly, we also find these Letters filled with beautiful words of encouragement and the admiration of God. God’s Church will be victorious!
Join us for this study and find your hope strengthened and confirmed through the encouraging messages of Jude; 2nd John & 3rd John.
