“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in every way, and that your body may keep well, even as I know your soul keeps well and prospers” 3 John 2 AMPC
We greatly rejoice in the sincerity and fidelity of Christ-Life, living in the Way, Truth and Life of God. I have no greater joy than to hear that all spiritual children of God are living their lives in the Truth (3 John 4), and nothing but the Truth, by the Help of God our Father, by the Holy Spirit wisdom and power given to those in Christ and Christ in you.
“He who does evil has not seen, discerned or experienced God; has experienced no vision of Him and does not know Him at all” 3 John 11 AMPC
“May mercy, soul-peace, and love be multiplied to you…Contend for the faith…for some have crept in stealthily, through a side door, not The Door of Resurrected Christ Jesus. Their doom was predicted long ago; ungodly persons who pervert grace: spiritual blessing and favor, of our God, into lawlessness and wantonness and immorality, and disown and deny our sole Master and Lord, Jesus Christ the Messiah, the Anointed One). Now I want to REMIND YOU…He delivered you and destroys those who do not believe, refusing to adhere to, trust in, and rely upon God. And angels, who abandoned their proper dwelling place, are under the thick gloom of utter darkness until the judgement and doom of The Great Day. The wicked are sentenced to suffer, just as Sodom and Gomorrah, who gave themselves over to impurity and indulged in unnatural vice and sensual perversity — are laid out in plain sight, as an exhibit of perpetual punishment to WARN of everlasting fire of judgment for unbelievers, and everlasting fire of the riches of glory of Christ, the likeness of God, for believers” Jude 1:2-7 AMPC
The heavenly treasure is Christ in our earthly vessels.
“Nevertheless, these dreamers corrupt their body; scorn and reject biblical authority and the government of Christ, revile and libel and scoff at heavenly glories…even Michael the Archangel said, “The Lord rebuke you!” to the devil when he contended over Moses’ body. But these worldly men revile anything they don’t understand, guided by their instincts like irrational beasts –by these they corrupt themselves and are destroyed and will perish. Woe to them! For they have taken the way of Cain, and have abandoned themselves in the error of Balaam, and will perish in their rebellion like Korah! (Jude 1:8-11 AMPC)
There are hidden elements of danger in their love feasts, carousing without scruples; clouds without water; trees without fruit, twice dead; wild waves of the sea, flinging up their own shame and disgrace; wandering stars; for whom the gloom of eternal darkness has been reserved forever. The Lord will come with his myriad of holy ones (ten thousand of his saints) to execute judgment upon all and to convict the unholy ones of their ungodly actions and words spoken against Christ Jesus. These grumblers complain of their own lot in life, controlled by their bodily desires, boastful, arrogant, flattering to gain advantage.
But you must REMEMBER, beloved, that we are told in the Word that in the last days, end times, there will be scoffers, following their own ungodly passions, stirring up division, devoid of the Holy Spirit, destitute of any higher spiritual life; influenced by unclean spirits, worldly people, following unholy spirits, making their own self God, separated from God our Father and His Christ.
But you beloved, build yourselves up in your most holy Faith, no longer tearing down what Jesus has done, is doing, and will continue to do for those who believe. Make spiritual progress, abiding in Christ and Christ in you (John 15:4); rising like an edifice higher and higher, praying at all times in the Holy Spirit. Guard and keep yourselves in the Love of God, the mercy that can bring you into life eternal in Christ and Christ in you. And refute or convict some who dispute with you, and convince some who waver and doubt. Strive to save others by snatching them out of the fire; on some have mercy with fear, hating even the garment spotted by unredeemed flesh.
Now to Him Who is able to keep you from falling; and to establish, keep, and sustain you in Christ, and Christ in you, presenting you unblemished before the Presence of His glory, in triumphant joy and exultation for the finished work of the Cross of Jesus; to Him be the glory, majesty, might, dominion, and power, and authority, before all time, and now, and forever, unto all the ages of eternity (Jude 1:12-25).
