Thank you! – 73

In a little over a week, I have finished reading and commenting on the Letter of Jude.  I have now finished the New Testament four canonical gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, plus the Acts of the Apostles, and Paul’s letters to the Romans, as well 1 Corinthians and 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 Thessalonians and 2 Thessalonians, 1 and 2 Timothy, Titus, Philemon, and Hebrews.  I have also finished the Letter of James, 1 Peter and 2 Peter, 1 John, 2 John, and 3 John, and now Jude.  Every time I finish commenting on a book of the Bible, I send a thank you blog.  I usually post five blogs a day covering a verse of the biblical books.  So far, I have posted over 15,815 blogs about the individual paragraphs of all the 46 books of the Old Testament, plus the individual verses of the first 26 books of the New Testament.  It has taken me nine years to get this done, since I first began in 2013.  I only have one more book to do, the Book of Revelation.

263 people follow this blog every day.  Many people have visited this site.  There have been over 83,000 hits on this blog since its inception.  I just want to thank all of you.  Word Press sent me a compilation that showed that about 52,200 people from 174 other countries have visited this web site since its inception.

I realize that over 14,500 people have left comments in 2021, but I have not responded to them.  Some of you might want to moderate my comments, which is fine with me.  If you want to contact me directly, my email is

I want to thank all of you who have sent emails to me this past month, especially

Peace – love – joy

Doxology (chapter 1)

This Jude said that God will keep you from falling.  Thus, you may stand without blemish rejoicing in the presence of the glorious God.  May all glory, majesty, power, and authority be with God, our savior, through Jesus Christ, our Lord, both now and forever.  Amen.  How do you pray to God?

Love of God (chapter 1)

This Jude said that they should build themselves up in their faith by praying in the Holy Spirit.  They should remain in the love of God.  They should look forward to the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life.  At the same time, they should have mercy on those who are wavering in their faith.  They should snatch some out of the fire, but be cautious with others who might defile them.  Do you build up your faith?

The Lord is coming (chapter 1)

This Jude said the Lord is coming with thousands of his holy ones, just like the prophecy of Enoch said.  The Lord will execute his judgment.  He will convict everyone for their ungodly deeds and all the other harsh things that they have done by speaking against God.  These are the malcontents and grumblers.  They indulge their own lusts.  They have bombastic speech.  They flatter people to get ahead.  Do you expect the Lord to come to judge the world?

Perverse ones (chapter 1)

This Jude said that they would be cursed.  These evil ones would end up like Cain, Balaam, and Korah.  They were blemishes on the Eucharistic love feasts.  They feed themselves.  They are like useless waterless clouds, like autumn dying trees, like waves of the sea, and like wandering stars.  The deepest darkness in hell has been reserved for them.  Do you believe that God will punish evil people eternally?

Blasphemers (chapter 1)

This Jude said that those dreamers who defile the flesh, reject authority, and blaspheme the holy ones should be punished.  The archangel Michael fought with the devil about the body of Moses.  He wanted God to rebuke the devil.  However, these blasphemers slander whatever they do not understand.  They are like irrational animals, who only know anything by instinct.  Have you ever slandered anyone?

Bad behavior (chapter 1)

This Jude reminded his fellow Christian believers that God destroyed some of the people that he had saved from Egypt who no longer believed in him.  They were to remember the wilderness destruction as well as the angels who left their proper position.  These angels were sent to the deepest darkness.  Finally, he reminded them about the people in Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding areas who pursued sexual immorality and unnatural lusts.  They were punished with an eternal fire.  Do you think that bad behavior should be punished?
