17 Therefore, this I say and testify in the Lord, that from this time forward you must not walk as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, [which is to think thoughts with the carnal mind of man, which must be destroyed, to be replaced by the mind of Christ. From the Word of the Lord within: "Your thoughts are not my thoughts. At best your thoughts are a vain hiss. It is many thoughts that make the mortal man. Those who follow their own brain will weep and mourn; there will be great pain. The mind is a terrible thing."]
19 Who being past feeling [pangs of conscience], have given themselves over to fleshly indulgences, to work all impurities with greediness.
23 Save others, snatching them out of the fire; on others have pity but with fear, hating even to touch the hem of their garments polluted by their fleshly indulgences [immoral behaviors]. [Fleshly indulgences and immoral behaviors are explained by the fruits of the flesh. To know which to snatch from the fire vs. which to shrink from touching them is only possible if you are in his presence, (as stated the next verse below), totally following God's direction in your words to speak and deeds to be done.]
|Jude 1:8 |
8 These filthy dreamers also defile the flesh, reject authority, and speak evil of dignities. [2000 years ago, Jude speaks of a few men who had infiltrated the true Christians, preaching their false message that grace excused all past, present, and future sins. Today grace, being a license for immorality, is the 400 year-old cornerstone of Protestant doctrine. Therefore Christendom is now full of filthy dreamers: filthy because their hearts are defiled with all manner of sins they still commit with disregard to the Lord's many warnings and requirements, and dreaming that they are saved and righteous. The Roman and orthodox sects are similarly full of filthy dreamers who dream that their heathenish masses, confessions, penance, and eucharists expiate the sin from their filthy defiled hearts, which rituals the Lord has described as conflagration, (great destruction). From the Word of the Lord within: "Christianity has no idea what I am or for what I stand. The enemy is in all of Christendom. Everyone is expecting Jesus to be their excuse. They are a stubborn people; their hearts have waxed cold. They think to be saved by making a noise about being saved. They are a clueless, fruitless people. All are filthy dreamers."]
