INSPIRATION – CONTENDING FOR THE FAITH
You cannot contend for the Faith without a Revelation of Brotherly Kindness and Forgiveness
Luke 18:1-8 (KJV)
And he spake a parable unto them to this end , that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;  Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man:  And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary.  And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man;  Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.  And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith.  And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?  I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?
Jude 3-4 (KJV)
 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.  For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
Jude 20-24 (KJV)
 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,  Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.  And of some have compassion, making a difference:  And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.  Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,

« E-34 Many times that troubles strike our home; it’s blessing in disguisements. Some people might say, “Well, you’re sick, just because you’re not right with God.” That doesn’t mean that. Job was right with God, and he was sick. But it’s God testing you, putting you to a test to see what you’ll do. Maybe he let the doctors say that for a purpose, to see what you’d do.
We’re near the coming of the Lord. God’s coming for a Church. He never asked and questioned, “Will I have a Church? Will I have righteousness?” But here was the question Jesus asked, “Will I find faith when I come?” God’s putting you to a test, maybe, to try your faith.

« 53 What is faith? Faith is something that’s revealed to you; that is not yet, but you believe it will be. Faith is a revelation of the will of God. So, by revelation!
54 And the churches today don’t even believe in spiritual revelation. They believe in a dogmatic teaching of some system. “By revelation Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than that of Cain, which God testified he was righteous.” Amen. I hope you see that.
“Earnestly Contending For The Faith That Was Once Delivered To The Saints.”
Now, I want you to notice in Jude’s address to this letter, who he’s addressing. He’s addressing Christians. He’s not speaking now to–to unbelievers; he’s talking directly to Christians. Now notice, “Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified (not to the world), to them that are sanctified in God the Father, preserved in Jesus Christ and called.” See?
« E-4 Now, he’s–he’s addressing to the Church, telling them, just to those that are sanctified in God, preserved in Christ and called. Now, he said, “Now, you’re the people that I’m talking to, that you will earnestly contend for the faith that was once delivered to the saints.” Now, not the… not ‘a’ faith that was delivered but ‘the’ faith that was delivered… Did you notice there?
“The–the faith that was once delivered to the saints,” not just a faith… Some people says, “Well, that’s against my faith.” I… There’s only one faith: one faith, one Lord, one God, one baptism, one faith, one doctrine.
And now, people say, “Well, I have ‘a’ faith and I go to my own church.” Well, that’s not what Jude’s speaking to here. He’s talking to the people that’s to contend for ‘the’ faith that was once delivered to the saints.
« E-5 Now, the only way that we’re going to ever know what’s… If we can only find out what ‘the’ faith is, then we can earnestly contend for that faith. Is that right? What ‘the’ faith… Now, that… the faith that was once delivered to the saints…
Now, if we’ll go back to where they were first called saints and find out what kind of a faith they had, then we’ll know more or less what they contend–what to contend for.
He was talking about when the first Church was set in order, was inaugurated on the day of Pentecost.
And now, we’ll notice what kind of a faith that they had. They had a faith in a resurrected living Christ, someone who’d rose from the dead and was living among them, just the same as He was before He ever died. Now, that… See, they wasn’t contending for some historical affair, but they were contending for a–a living Christ, a resurrected One Who was in their midst
