Jude 16-19 Sensual Lustful Mockers Lack the Indwelling Holy Spirit

(c)2019 WF Cobb Truthbase.net  DailyTruthbase.blogspot

16 These are grumblers, complainers, who journey acc to their own lusts; and they speak swelling words, flattering people to gain advantage

17 But you, beloved, remember the words which were spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ: (whom they deny v4)

18 how they told you that there would be mockers in the last time who would journey acc to their own ungodly lusts. (master or else...)

19 These are sensual 1Cor 2:14 persons, who separate themselves/cause divisions, not having the Spirit (thus ff their animal spirit) 

Rm 8:9 not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed HS dwells in you. if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ (indwelling), he is not His/of Him 

RECAP (III.) The Ungodly don't Know nor Do what God requires Jn 8:31 does His will, and will suffer just recompense/punishment Lk 12

{I.} We grumble/complain when we don't have/can't get what we desire/think we need for our happiness/contentment since God's not sufficient

A. We complain against (fate/circumstances): God's goodness, sovereignty, justness = rebellion cx Lordship because we don't like/value (wrong values) what He does, and thus don't trust Him=Rm 8:28 (no submit=rebellion K-Barnea; jump off easel)

Lack of contentment (trust in sovereignty) due to lack of godliness (right values) leads to loss and destruction, (not getting what you really want)

A. Contentment = satisfaction with circumstances at the present, knowing that: God has allowed/provided  it for your highest good Rm 8:28 

B. We walk acc to our lusts/desires, vs God's desires for us (faith, hope, love, holiness/godliness, blessable?happy contented sheep Ps 23) 

APP: Enjoy what you have rather than desiring what you don’t have. Just dreaming about nice things is meaningless chasing the wind  Ecc 6:9 NLT

I. Ungodly Scoffers reject God's will for their lives, in favor of satan's will, and justly suffer discontent, fruitlessness, and judgment

2Pt 3:3 knowing this: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking acc to their own  lusts, 5 willfully forget: that by word of God 

Ps 1:1 Blessed...walks not in ungodly counsel...nor stands path of sinners, nor sits in seat scornful; 2 delight is in the law of LORD...meditates 

3 tree planted by rivers...fruit in its season, leaf not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper...6 the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Mk 4:19 cares of this world, deceitfulness of riches,  lusts other things entering..choke the word...unfruitful. Jn 15 burned

2Pt 2:9 Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust...for the day of judgment, 10 especially those who walk acc to the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise authority. They are presumptuous, self-willed. They are not afraid to speak evil... 

II. Better to never know the path to blessing than be dishonored & enslaved to sin/satan thru unsanctified temporal/carnal desires/lusts

2Pt 2:18 they speak great words of emptiness, allure thru the lusts of the flesh, thru wanton caprice/lewdness, the ones who have actually escaped from those who live in error. 19 promise liberty, themselves are slaves of corruption; overcome, brought bondage. 20 escaped the pollutions of world thru the knowledge of Lord Savior JC, again entangled and overcome, end is worse for them than beginning. 21 better for them not  known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered to them.

Rm 1:24  God also gave them up to uncleanness thru the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves:

1Pt 2:11 abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul      Js 1:14 tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed

Eph 2:3 times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath

1Tim 6:9 purpose to be rich fall into temptation & snare, many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition 

III. We win the war for our souls by crucifying our flesh (putting off the old), being renewed in our minds, and putting on Christlikeness

Jn 8:44 of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you want to do; not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. he is a liar

Gal 5:24 they that belong to/are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its affections and lusts  cf 6:14 Rm 8:13 by HS put to death deeds of flesh

Rm 6:4 buried with Him thru baptism into death...even so we also should walk in newness of life. 6 knowing that our old man was crucified with Him...that we should no longer be slaves of sin 7 who has died has been freed from sin. 11 reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.   12 do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts

13 present yourselves to God...members as instruments of righteousness to God. 17 were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine to which you were delivered. 18 having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness

19  For just as you presented as slaves of uncleanness/lawlessness leading to more, so now present as slaves of righteousness for holiness. 22 having been set free from sin, and become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life. 

Titus 2:12 taught denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live sound-mindedly, righteously, and godly, in this present world

1Pt 4:1 arm..mindset...who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, 2 that no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but the will of God. 3 spent enough of our past life doing the will of the Gentiles walked in wanton caprice, lusts...

1Jn 2:16 all that is in the world, lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father-of the world 19 went out from us-not of us-if of us, would have continued with us; but went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.

Eph 4:22  put off old man, corrupt acc to deceitful lusts; 23 be renewed in spirit of your mind 24 put on new man... righteous true holiness

Rm 6:12  Let not sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it's  lusts  13:14  put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh (desire for temporal), to fulfill its lusts  Gal 5:16 Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust  of the flesh

Col 3:5  Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil  lusts, and covetousness, which is idolatry: 6  For which things’ sake the wrath of God comes on the children of disobedience:

2Tim 2:22  Flee also youthful lusts but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

2Cor 9:8 God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in ALL things, may have an abundance for every good work (Secret to getting more grace is submission– humbly embracing God's will in holy devotion and trust)
