Jude "Preserved In Jesus Christ"
The greetings/introductions to each of the New Testament books reveal who Jesus is, His leaders are, and who the church is individually-collective, and this blog series is to help us understand how that allows God’s people to receive revelation into a deeper relational existence than they had prior to knowing this amazing map of our journey that He has given to us.
The greeting of the letter titled Jude is, “Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called: Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied.”
The first statement that I will mention today is, “sanctified by God the Father,” God the Father set all the things in motion to completely cleanse His people from the wickedness of the world, and they are what He intends them to be. This is the position of relation that His people have inherited and now possess once they have received their revelation of the Gift that He has supplied.
The last phrase that I will touch on today is, “preserved in Jesus Christ.” Not only did God completely cleanse His people from their old selves by His Gift, but Jesus also preserves them in Himself. This preservation is eternal in its perfection, and once a person enters he cannot leave. This is the step on the path just before a person can enter and experience Heaven in Earth.
God has this incredible map for His people, and He shares it with them as He knows they can receive it. Continue following the series and find out how amazing the journey can be.
Tomorrow’s blog is Revelation which states, “The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants…”
