(Lyrics) The Book of Jude Song Version 1
Adapted from the Gospel Book of Jude
Music by Leslie (aka Jesse) Hughes ©

Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ and a brother of James
To those who have been called, who are loved by God the Father
And kept by Jesus Christ
Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance
Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you
About the salvation we share
I felt I had to write and urge you to contend for the faith
That was once for all entrusted to the saints
For certain men whose condemnation was written about long ago
Have secretly slipped in among you
They are godless men, who change the grace of our God
Into a license for immorality
And deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord
Though you already know all this
I want to remind you that the Lord delivered his people out of Egypt
But later destroyed those who did not believe
And the angels who did not keep their positions of authority
But abandoned their own home
These he has kept in darkness
Bound with everlasting chains for judgment on the great Day
In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns Gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion
They serve as an example of those who suffer
The punishment of eternal fire
In the very same way, these dreamers pollute their own bodies
Reject authority and slander celestial beings
But even the archangel Michael
When he was disputing with the devil about the body of Moses
Did not dare to bring a slanderous accusation against him
But said, "The Lord rebuke you!"
Yet these men speak abusively against whatever they do not understand And what things they do understand by instinct
Like unreasoning animals
These are the very things that destroy them
Woe to them! They have taken the way of Cain
They have rushed for profit into Balaam's error
They have been destroyed in Korah's rebellion
These men are blemishes at your love feasts
Eating with you without the slightest qualm
Shepherds who feed only themselves
They are clouds without rain, blown along by the wind
Autumn trees, without fruit and uprooted-twice dead
They are wild waves of the sea, foaming up their shame
Wandering stars
For whom blackest darkness has been reserved forever
Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men
"See, the Lord is coming with thousands upon thousands
Of his holy ones
To judge everyone, and to convict all the ungodly
Of all the ungodly acts they have done in the ungodly way
And of all the harsh words ungodly sinners have spoken against him." These men are grumblers and faultfinders
They follow their own evil desires
They boast about themselves and flatter others for their own advantage
But, dear friends, remember what the apostles
Of our Lord Jesus Christ foretold
They said to you, "In the last times there will be scoffers
Who will follow their own ungodly desires."
These are the men who divide you
Who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit
But you, dear friends, build yourselves up in your most holy faith
And pray in the Holy Spirit
Keep yourselves in God's love as you wait for the mercy
Of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life
Be merciful to those who doubt
Snatch others from the fire and save them
To others show mercy, mixed with fear
Hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh
To him who is able to keep you from falling
And to present you before his glorious presence
Without fault and with great joy
To the only God our Savior
Be glory, majesty, power and authority
Through Jesus Christ our Lord
Before all ages, now and forevermore!
Amen

I am a New Order, New Age and New Covenant Gospel Rock and Roller preaching the Gospel to the world in the tradition of Dylan and Springsteen. My songs metaphorically interpret the Bible and book of Revelation, helping to shine a light upon Bob Dylan’s lyrical clues. I serve the Spirit of the Lord, and dedicate my eternal Star to serving my King the Holy Spirit of Truth (Isaiah chapter 11 and 2 Corinthians 3:17) and proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor, the day of God’s Salvation and the New Covenant (Luke 4:18-19, Isaiah chapter 61, 2 Corinthians 6:1-2, Jeremiah 31:31-34, Hebrews 8:7-13) by measuring the temple, unsealing the scroll in the book of Revelation and preaching the true metaphoric interpretation of the Gospel to the world inspired by Mt 13:35 and Ps 78:2 that states “I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things hidden since the creation of the world." Visit my home pages to view my complete lyrics, Gospel references, notes and sketches. Thank-you to all my friends who visit my pages, listen to my songs, and read my notes. Your friend and brother, Leslie aka Jesse Hughes

(Please note that a Jew and Israelite in a metaphoric interpretation of the Gospel is not a person of Jewish heritage, it is a metaphor for a part of all of us that is a Jew within and another part of us that is a Gentile within -see Romans 2:28-29- and how these two parts become one in Ephesians 2:14-22, Ezekiel 37:15-17 and Romans 3:27-31, also how there are those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars- see Revelations 3:9)

Gospel references for these songs and spoken words are the same as my recent song and spoken word posts:
