...but God

Fight for the House

Standing for God's truth is a serious thing. Standing against it carries major repercussions. In this series, Skip Heitzig presents Jude's call to get in the ring—a call that is as relevant today as it was when Jude penned his letter. Believers must defend the gospel to unbelievers. They also must guard against false teachings that distract from the truth documented in God's Word and threaten to destroy the church. In the fight to protect the church and the truth of the gospel, are you a contender?

A Call to Battle
Jude 1:1-4
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Standing for God’s truth is a serious thing, and yet it is part of our responsibility to do exactly that. Welcome to the only book in the New Testament devoted entirely to apostasy (the abandoning of the truth, the defecting from the faith). This short little letter (only twenty-five verses) is one of the most neglected yet important books in Scripture. As we begin our series Fight for the House, we will try to frame the battle by looking at who’s called to fight, what the battle is, whom we are fighting, and what weaponry we are using. Suit up, soldiers; it’s time to get into this battle!

The Fight: Ancient and Modern
Jude 1:5-11
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
As Jude called his readers to fight for the faith, he wanted them to know that turning from the truth was not new, nor was it novel. The battle for truth has been unfolding since the very beginning—ever since another’s will was allowed to compete against God’s will. Jude reaches back into the historical record to fortify his warning to his audience. Three basic lessons emerge that will allow us to be successful as we engage in this ancient battle in modern times.

Gloom and Doom!
Jude 1:12-15
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
How’s that for a sermon title? It sounds like it comes right out of a 1950s black and white movie about the end of the world. But these two words describe the theme of the four verses in Jude we will cover today. As Jude describes the character and condition of the false teachers who were ruining the church (gloom), he then predicts what will happen to them and others like them in the future (doom). Jude calls out these apostates and assures his audience of a final reckoning.

The Acts of the Apostates
Jude 1:16-19
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
You’ve probably heard me refer to the book of Jude as the Acts of the Apostates. Apostasy is turning away from Christ by leaning on the rationale of worldly philosophy and personal preference. After going back to the Old Testament and citing examples of apostasy from Jewish history, Jude sums up the current crisis in the church and says that even Jesus’ apostles predicted it would happen. In this summary statement, Jude gives three categories of their activity.

How to Stand When Others Fall
Jude 1:20-23
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
If you have ever tried to walk straight while aboard a ship being tossed by the ocean’s waves, you know how hard that is. The motion around you challenges the strength and the stability within you. If the New Testament repeatedly warns against falling away (see Matthew 13:1-9, 24-30; 1 John 2:18-19), if the apostles predicted that many would “depart from the faith” (1 Timothy 4:1; see also 2 Thessalonians 2:3; 2 Timothy 3:1-14), what are we to do? Jude gives his audience a five-fold corrective for when people around you (even in the church) seem to be dropping like flies, carried by the current of this world.

Victory in the Ring!
Jude 1:24-25
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Jude was a fighter. And he told his audience that they needed to get in the ring and fight, too (see v. 3). But those who fight against the truth (the apostates) are powerful enemies and many well-meaning victims have fallen from their blows. Jude assured his beloved readers that our Coach and Trainer anticipated this fight, and He has us covered. He closed his little letter by pointing us back to God and by encouraging us to praise Him. He is our Savior, our Sustainer, and our Sponsor.
