TAMB: Jude’s Prophetic Woe–Cain (Jude 11)

Jude’s historic warnings to the church are gripping, serious, and desperately needed for the modern day. With much gravity, Jude issues a prophetic woe against men whose wickedness and rebellion bears a likeness to that of Cain, Balaam, and Korah. His indictment of such men is brief, however a careful perusal of his instruction brings us through an important “hall of shame” within biblical history. In this message, we consider the nature of Cain’s corruption and treachery as humanity’s first false religionist and murderer.
