Jude 24-25 "Now unto him who is able to keep you from falling, and

although he was not one of the apostles of Christ. Jude was the half-
brother of Jesus, though he never mentions that in the text. During

the ministry of Jesus his half brothers did not believe in him but all
that was changed by the death and resurrection of Christ. The name Jude
is the English form of the name for Judah which means praise. Jude was
writing when false teachers were attacking the church. New believers

were being destroyed with their heresies. They were teaching that the
world was evil and only the spirit was good; therefore what you did in
the body had nothing to do with your spirit. So then you could sin

all you want to in the body and the spirit was not affected. They
taught that Jesus was not God in human flesh. They taught Jesus was
not flesh but only Spirit. Therefore believers were like Jesus. So

people took from that they could sin all they wanted to and it would
not affect them spiritually. This teaching is called Gnosticism. The
Gnostics considered themselves on a higher plane than the average
believer.

So Jude graphically describes the false teachers. He gives a stern
warning to be on the look out for false teachers and false teaching.
He begins by saying as believers we should be willing to fight
for the faith once for all delivered to the saints.
