imageJude is a book dealing with apostasy.  More specifically, Jude is a book dealing with Christians caught up in apostasy, detailing the course and nature of this apostasy, along with the end result.

We’re living very near the close of the present dispensation, during the time when the Laodicean period of Church history is rapidly nearing completion.  Throughout the remainder of this dispensation, according to Scripture, there can only be a further deterioration of existing conditions.  And the only recourse that Christians have to avoid being engulfed, to some degree, in this departure from the faith is a knowledge of the Word of God.

There will be no great awakening or great revival in Christendom during days ahead.  Rather, deteriorating conditions will only intensify during the closing days of the dispensation.  And the end result of this deterioration — total apostasy, resulting from the working of the leaven which the woman placed in the three measures of meal (Matthew 13:33) — will mark conditions in Christendom as the dispensation is brought to a close.

Jude, as all of the New Testament epistles, deals specifically with the salvation of the soul.  And the special and particular emphasis in Jude is upon an ever-intensifying deterioration relative to correct biblical teaching surrounding this proffered salvation.

This is the main thesis of Jude’s epistle, and this is also the main thesis around which this commentary on Jude has been written.

In the grace of our Savior,
