  •   "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…

  •   Glory 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). We concluded our previous installment with these words: "The Glory of God is not a glory to be compared with the glory of man. Don’t…

  •   "To God our Savior, Who alone is wise, Be glory and majesty, Dominion and power, Both now and forever. Amen." (Jude 1.25). A benediction is man asking of God the blessings he thinks he needs; a doxology is man’s attempt to ascribe to God the blessings and honor He deserves. This, the final verse…

  • Focus Text: Luke 22.39-46 There were very few people who loved Jesus more than His apostles (save Judas, of course). However, on this fateful night, even their great love for Him could not stay the exhaustion that their sorrow brought upon them. The time had come! Jesus was on this very night to be betrayed…

  • Focus Text: Isaiah 52.1-3 Jesus slept at some odd times, at least the way His disciples saw it. He slept while a storm on the Sea of Galilee terrified them horribly (see Matthew 14.23-27). Sometimes, Jesus’ disciples slept at the most inopportune time, like the time of His imminent arrest and death…

  • Focus Text: Matthew 23.37-38 Hear more of Jesus’ lament over Jerusalem: “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing! See!…

  • Focus Text: Matthew 23.1-15 Only a couple of days had passed since Jesus had wept as He entered the great city of Jerusalem (Luke 19.41). When He came into the city, He found what He had always found – men consumed with doing evil in the name of religion. His passion for truth and His compassion…

  • Focus Text: Luke 19.41-46 Passion and compassion are closely connected words. In fact, if one looks closely at the word compassion, he will find passion nested inside of it. Passion defined connects with love, affection, devotion, and similar emotions for some thing or some one. By definition,…
