24 Now [de] unto him that is able [dunamai] to keep [phulasso] you [humas][autos] from falling [aptaistos], and [kai] to present [histemi] you faultless [amomos] before the presence [katenopion] of his [autos] glory [doxa] with [en] exceeding joy [agalliasis], 25 To the only [monos] wise [sophos] God [theos] our [hemon] Saviour [soter], be glory [doxa] and [kai] majesty [megalosune], dominion [kratos] and [kai] power [exousia], both [kai] now [nun] and [kai] ever [eis][pas][aion]. Amen [amen]. KJV-Interlinear 24 Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy, 25 to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen. NASB
Jude ends his letter with two very remarkable verses well worth your memorizing.
I'll rewrite them in a little easier format for you to remember.
'And now to Him who is able to keep you from falling,
and to present you without blemish, before the presence of His glory, with exceeding joy.
To the only wise God and Savior, even Jesus Christ our Lord,
to whom be glory and majesty, dominion and power,
before time, now, and forever. Believe it!'
Jesus Christ is God. He is the only access to the Godhead. He is able to keep us from falling into the Lake of Fire, through salvation in one respect, by believing in Him. And, in another respect through advancing to spiritual maturity, He is able to keep us from falling into spiritual failure.
One day at the Judgment Seat of Christ we will all stand before His presence and be evaluated. Through advancing to spiritual maturity, mature believers will stand before Him without blemish, without the baggage of the wood, hay, and stubble production which comes with a life under the control of the sin nature.
All other negative believers will stand before Him with all of their baggage or human works and no spiritual production to show for their life.
But a cleansing fire will wash us all totally clean of the human earthly baggage which covers and infiltrates our souls. Whether immature or mature, Christ will cleanse all of the filth of unrighteousness from us all. A cleansing which is required before our entry into eternity. Sin, human good, and human agendas will never again enter into our collective or individual eternal lives.
And the joy and happiness we will then receive, will be well in excess of anything which we could ever encounter in a hundred life times here on this earth.
Jesus Christ is the only wise God. He is the only God. He is the only source of wisdom. All of mans wisdom is imagined at best and detached from reality. Reality is the perfect matching of facts with life. Mans agenda is generally only intended to be self serving for the very few who see themselves as the best of the best in the jungle. And anyone small or great, can fall into the trap of seeing them self as better than others.
Wisdom comes only from the daily study of the Word of God, under the system which God has designed for the spiritual life. Namely from within the fellowship sphere.
The world is full of academic information in a list of subjects that are a mile long. But you can know everything in the world and exclude God and you will know nothing at all. If you cannot translate knowledge into reality and truth, then your brain filled with facts and tidbits is totally useless to your own life and destiny.
There is only one glory, high honor, and praise which is worthy of truth, and that belongs to Christ.
There is only one majesty, greatness of dignity and integrity, and that belongs to Jesus Christ.
There is only one dominion and that is the entire expanse of all that exists, and it all belongs to Jesus Christ.
There is only one power, and Jesus Christ has the ability, capacity, and the resources to execute all that He wills.
He has had all of these attributes since eternity past, before time ever began.
He has all of these attributes even now, even in the face of a growing world of apostates (those who have abandoned Him).
He will continue to have all of these attributes forever and forever.
No other belief, no other religion, no other theory, no other philosophy, nothing in this world can do that which God, through Christ, can do for you.
Nothing in life happens by accident.
Nothing in life will come to you through chance luck.
Nothing in life will come to you through wishing.
Nothing in life will come to you through feeling sorry for yourself.
Nothing in life will come to you through self abuse or just bad luck.
Nothing in life will come to you through hustling more than the next guy.
Nothing in life will come to you because you earn or deserve it.
Nothing in life will come to you because you are smarter, brighter, prettier, more gifted than anyone else.
Nothing in life will come to you because of your accomplishments, status, titles, or position in life.
All good things (all that comes from God), come to you 'only' through Bible doctrine in the soul and the resident spiritual growth resulting from it. There is no other source of prosperity, no other source of security, no other source of accomplishment, no other source of peace and happiness and fulfillment.
Believe it and be wise and prosper. Disbelieve it, ignore it, reject it, try to alter it, and find out the hard way at the end of your life.
Your entire eternal future depends on your daily spiritual decisions in life now. Don't wait until your entire life is over and lose everything, when you can easily have everything in your dreams and much, much more, by simply committing yourself now, to a daily Bible study program.
