JUDE #2 - Contend for the Faith

SundayJude2

JUDE#2 - Contend for the Faith

This is part#2 in this new series on Jude.  The book of Jude is a very small book in the Bible but it is packed with many wonderful lessons to be learned.  We will be studying the entire book of Jude in seven different parts.

click HERE to view Part#1 "Greeting to the Called

SundayJude2B

It doesn't take Jude long to reveal what the true topic of his letter is going to be - it's actually more of a warning.  We'll begin by defining a couple words (even though we might think we know the meaning). I am always surprised to realize that I'm often off on the details of word definitions.

Exhort - to urge strongly;  to give warnings or advice

Contend - to struggle for;  to strive against difficulties

To reword that sentence in modern verbiage it might sound something like this:
"I am begging you/ urging you to continue on in your Christian walk even when times are extremely evil and difficult."

We see in verse 4 why Jude was giving such a warning (see picture below).


SundayJude2C

I believe this is happening everywhere - that such worldly evil has crept into every aspect of our lives, even in churches, Christian organization, Christian schools and so on.  I am reminded of the Scripture passage that talks about satan being the father of lies:

"He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies."
John 8:44

We see that satan was a murderer from the beginning and this is what I believe is being referenced in the underlined portion of Jude verse 4a "long ago being condemned".  This condemnation is for the fallen angels and anyone who follows satan and his lies.

The quotes below speak for themselves:

SundayJude2D

 These ungodly people are twisting the truth into the most foul pack of lies.  Since "lewdness" is not a common word in modern day speech let's define that word:

Lewdness - evil, wicked, obscene, vulgar

Unfortunately, that is exactly what is happening everywhere.  Jesus' truth is being twisted and manipulated into the most offensive immorality unimaginable.

SundayJude2A


Lastly, the denial of Jesus Christ will be detrimental to your eternity.  Remember that Jesus Is the Way, Truth & life - NO ONE gets to the Father except through Him!

SundayJesusWayTruthLife


satan is real but Our Heavenly Father can and will defeat satan in a millisecond with just a puff of His breath!
Our God is an Awesome God and He is worth "contending for the faith", even in extremely difficult times!

Rooting Garlic for Spring Planting

2023-2-14

Rooting Garlic for Spring Planting

Garlic can be planted in both the Spring and Fall.  If you decide to plant in the Spring, then I suggest rooting before planting.

We took an old empty cranberry juice bottle (plastic, store bought) and cleaned it out.  Count the number of garlic heads that you plan on rooting and cut that number of holes (about the size of a silver dollar) in the side of the plastic bottle (the "side" which will now become the top).  We had 3 full heads of garlic and one single clove of garlic (so we cut 3 silver dollar size holes and one nickle size hole in the plasic).  Secure/tighten the bottle lid.  Fill the bottle with water by using the holes that you just cut (in other words - don't fill using the usual opening - lol).  Place each garlic head in an opening and wait one or two weeks (until you see a good root system growing - see picture below) 

unnamed (20)


Gently remove each garlic head from the plastic bottle (the roots should easily come out without being cut off).


unnamed (18)

Now, tenderly separate each clove from the head of garlic (see picture below).  From one head of garlic I got 10 cloves, which means that there will be 10 plants yielding 10 heads of garlic in the Fall (providing that nothing disastrous happens during growth).  You could estimate that from 3 heads of garlic you could yield 30 heads of garlic.  That's well worth the effort! 

unnamed (19)

Plant each rooted clove about 5 inches apart and about 3 inches deep (the dirt should be up to the green part.  Another way of describing it would be that the green part is above the ground)

The middle stub in the picture below should be discarded - that was the old plant/stem from last year.

unnamed (17)

The picture below is our garlic just emerging from our Fall planting.  You will notice some gaps in the rows - that's because some of the cloves did not root and rotted instead.  That's why rooting the garlic is a great step to take for Spring planting.

unnamed (21)

Below you will see that this clove cluster has a few rotting cloves in the middle.  The second picture below shows when I separated the rotten cloves from the good one.  And finally, the third picture below shows the healthy rooted clove just separated from the rotten ones.

Enjoy your Spring garlic planting!
