  • Every ruled human entity has a political machine of one sort or another running it. The machine might be very, very simple or it may be extremely complex. The Pharisees and Lawyers who held sway over the hearts of many Jews in and around Jerusalem was a formidable political force. They withstood the pressures of the Roman…

  • Having presented the fact that no man loved the truth more than Jesus Christ, we will now proceed to see how this supreme love for the truth manifested itself in His Life and Teachings. The Sermon on the Mount is unquestionably a classic. It contains truths that are forever embedded in the minds of almost all civilized…

  • The love of the truth is, as we have established earlier, a spiritual fundamental. It has no substitutes; there is no “plan B” to make up for a genuine love for the truth. Moses was a man who loved the truth. David also loved the truth and pursued it with all his might. The prophets were men who had an insatiable…

  • Eve sinned. Adam sinned. From that standpoint, they were equally guilty before God, their Creator. The way they sinned was significantly different. Eve sinned due to deception (see 1 Timothy 2.14). Adam sinned because his affection for other things or people exceeded his devotion to God. Our study today will explore these…

  • The love of the truth is fundamental to salvation. This is not a new revelation. This has been a fundamental since day-one of our human existence. The God who requires that we love the truth today is the same God who made it a requirement in the beginning. The next few editions of these messages will be devoted to showing…

  • Special problems faced the saints at Thessalonica. Some of them had been deceived into thinking that the second coming of Christ was to occur immediately. Paul wrote them to correct this error and to present them with the evidence needed to recognize such error in the future. The principles still apply. It is from his writings…

  •  With this message we begin an open-ended series; your critical reading is earnestly requested. The love of the truth is a fundamental. If it is missed, there are no substitutes. One cannot “make up for” the love of the truth by doubling up on prayers, or sacrifices or fasts or penances or by doing any…

  •   "To God our Savior, Who alone is wise, Be glory and majesty, Dominion and power, Both now and forever. Amen." (Jude 1.25). This word of glory which recognizes the rightful and eternal place of God is just what the phrase implies – a word of glory. Jude’s entire epistle revolves…

  •   The decision to make Jesus Lord of Lord and King of Kings was made in a time and place that was totally outside the realm of human influences. The actual elevation and coronation of the Lamb of God to His current position of Authority and Dominion was also completed in a time and place that was outside the realm…

  •   Dominion and Power belong to the One who sits on the throne and to the Lamb (see Jude 1.25 and Revelation 5.13-14). This means that this descriptive phrase is applicable "…Both now and forever. Amen." (Jude 1.25). In the human experience we have not, yea cannot, know of a comparable kingdom or…

  •     Jude spoke of the fact that glory and majesty and Dominion and power belong to God, "…Both now and forever. Amen." (Jude 1.25). John saw a kingdom in which the Lamb reigned eternal (Revelation 5.13-14). Daniel prophesied that "…the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall…

  •   Jude wrote: "To God our Savior, Who alone is wise, Be glory and majesty, Dominion and power, Both now and forever. Amen." (Jude 1.25). Dominion and Power belong to God. We noted previously an awesome scene before God’s throne, the one which John saw in a vision. It ended like this: "‘Blessing…

  • Focus Text: Jude 1.25 The third and fourth major points of this miniseries taken from Jude’s Doxology are Dominion and Power, respectively. Jude writes, "To God our Savior, Who alone is wise, Be glory and majesty, Dominion and power, Both now and forever. Amen." (Jude 1.25). As has been stated earlier,…

  •   Jude and the Hebrews writer were the only two New Testament scribes to use the term Majesty. It is probably not by happenstance that each of them used the term to refer to Deity rather than humanity, or as we have styled before, Majesty belongs to God. In his second usage of the word, the author of Hebrews…

  •   Majesty belongs to God. As Jude put it, "To God our Savior, Who alone is wise, Be glory and majesty, Dominion and power, Both now and forever. Amen." (Jude 1.25). Perhaps the best way to begin this discussion is by thinking about the way we use the term Majesty in our culture. In countries that are…
