A Journey Through Jude (8 of 8)
There's Nobody Quite Like Him!
Steve Wagers
Jude 24-25

1. YEARS AGO, A SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER,
WHO WAS EXAMINING HER PUPILS AFTER A
SERIES OF LESSONS ON THE OMNIPOTENCE
OF GOD, ASKED, "NOW THAT WE'VE
STUDIED ALL ABOUT THE GREATNESS OF
GOD, IS THERE ANYTHING GOD CAN'T DO?"

2. THERE WAS IMMEDIATE AND DEAD SILENCE.
FINALLY, ONE LITTLE BOY HELD UP HIS
HAND. THE TEACHER COULDN'T BELIEVE IT.
SHE HAD HAMMERED FOR WEEKS ABOUT
THE OMNIPOTENT POWER OF GOD. SHE
HAD HAMMERED FOR WEEKS ON THE FACT
THAT GOD COULD DO ANYTHING BECAUSE
OF WHICH HE WAS. SHE LOOKED TO THE
LITTLE BOY, AND ASKED, "WELL, SAMMY,
JUST WHAT IS IT THAT GOD CAN'T DO?"

"WELL, HE CAN'T PLEASE EVERYBODY!"

3. I WOULD HAVE TO ADMIT, I'VE PASTORED

THE OLD PREACHER SAID, "SON, IF YOU
WOULD'VE STARTED OUT WHERE YOU
ENDED UP, YOU WOULD'VE ENDED UP LIKE
YOU STARTED!"

6. JUDE ENDS HIS EPISTLE WHERE HE BEGAN
HIS EPISTLE. HE IS FOCUSING UPON THE
PERSON, POWER, PURPOSE, AND
PREEMINENCE OF AN OMNISCIENT,
OMNIPRESENT, AND OMNIPOTENT GOD.

7. I THINK OF THE DAY THAT KARL MARX DIED,
MARCH 14, 1883. HIS HOUSEKEEPER
CAME TO HIM, AND SAID, "TELL ME YOUR
LAST WORDS, AND I'LL WRITE THEM DOWN."
KARL MARX REPLIED, "GO ON, GET OUT.
LAST WORDS ARE FOR FOOLS WHO HAVEN'T
SAID ENOUGH ALREADY!" 1

8. JUDE HAS ALREADY SAID ENOUGH IN HIS
