Jude then gives two final instructions to believers: Jude instructs the believers to have compassion on some, to make a difference in their lives. They must be merciful to those who doubt and to remember they were all doubters at one time; it’s their duty as Christians to proclaim God's truths to dispel their doubts, A Warning Of The End Times (2000:n.p) . He also instructs to save others with fear; pulling them from the fire. And reminds them that the duty of every Christian is to proclaim the gospel, so that all may be saved, and none should perish in the flames of hellfire, A Warning Of The End Times (2000:n.p) . Final thoughts - Satan is smart; he was an angel in heaven, and leader of others. He stills leads his unholy followers today in rebellion against God's authority. He knows all the weakest points of humankind, and that is where he strikes, feeding our selfish and carnal desires. It is not coincidence that this warning is immediately before the final book of the Bible; the influences of Satan on the church will only grow more powerful as we near the final times. Jude warns Christians then and now to earnestly and carefully guard against the influences of Satan and the ungodly men he uses to try to destroy God's church, A Warning Of The End Times (2000:n.p) . Conclusion In this essay I discussed certain aspects on the book of John as well as the book of Jude. I looked at the similarities between 1 John and the Gospel of John, as well as between 2 Peter and Jude. I discussed the purpose of the writing of these books. I discussed the appeals to believers facing the heresy in Jude and the response that was expected from them, as well as the requirements and tests for fellowship in John. 11

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
