Letter from Yehudah (Jude) to “Those called by El The Father”
YEHUDAH – Jude:
Yehudah, the servant of YEHOSHUA ha Mashiach, and brother of James, to those who are called by El The Father, sanctified and preserved in YEHOSHUA ha Mashiach.
2 Mercy unto you, and peace and love be multiplied!
3 Beloved, while I was making every effort to write to you about our common salvation, it was necessary to write to you, exhorting you to fight for the faith, which was once for all entrusted to the saints.
4 For certain persons have crept in unnoticed, who were long beforehand ordained for this condemnation; impious souls who turn the grace of our Elohim into lasciviousness, and contradict our only Master and El, YEHOSHUA ha Mashiach.
5 I therefore bring to your remembrance, though you know this once for all, that the Master, having saved the people out of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe.
6 And angels, who kept not their principality, but left their habitation, He has kept in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day;
7 even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the judgment of eternal fire.
8 Yet in like manner, these dreamers defile the flesh, despising authority and reviling dignity.
9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil in dispute about the body of Moses, dared not bring against him a railing judgment, but said, “YEHOWAH rebuke you!”
10 But these revile things which they know not; and what they know naturally, as irrational animals, by these things they are defiled.
11 Woe unto them for they have gone the way of Cain, and have greedily run after the error of Balaam, and perished in the contradiction of Korah.
12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear; clouds without water, carried about by the winds; autumnal trees, without fruit, twice dead, uprooted;
13 wild waves of the sea, exhibiting their own shame; wandering stars, for whom the black darkness has been reserved forever.
14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, “Behold, YEHOWAH came with many thousands of His holy ones,
15 to execute judgment upon all, and to convict all the wicked of all their wicked deeds, which they have done in a wicked way; and of all the harsh things which wicked sinners have spoken against Him.”
16 These are grumblers, complainers, walking after their own lusts, whose mouths speak insolently, admiring people for the sake of gaining an advantage.
17 But you beloved, ought to remember the words that were spoken beforehand by the apostles of our Master YEHOSHUA ha Mashiach;
18 that they were saying to you, “There will be mockers in the last time, who will walk after their own wicked lusts.”
19 These are the ones who separate themselves; sensual, having not The Spirit.
20 But you beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in The Holy Spirit,
21 keep yourselves in the love of Elohim, looking for the mercy of our Master YEHOSHUA ha Mashiach unto eternal life.
22 And have mercy on some, making a difference.
23 Save others with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment disgraced by the flesh.
24 Now to Him Who is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy;
25 to the only wise Elohim, our Deliverer through YEHOSHUA ha Mashiach our Master, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forevermore. Amen!
