Jude, Part 12

In today’s study, we find out why Jude compared the rebellion of false teachers with that of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram in the Old Testament.

What is the “rebellion of Korah”? This account is in Numbers 16:1-35 in the Old Testament. Core, along with Dathan and Abiram took two-hundred and fifty leaders and rebelled against Moses and Aaron; their God-given appointed leaders. They insisted that Moses and Aaron were taking too much authority upon themselves. Of course, the heart of the matter was that they did not want to be submissive to the divine authority that God has set up over them. Today, it’s no different, instead of standing with censors, like these guys ended up doing, to see who God had really put in charge, they have secretive and called business 10 meetings to get the job done. It’s just as unscriptural and evil. Of course, in the end, God’s men were vindicated and the earth opened up and swallowed all who were involved in the rebellion who had murmured against God’s appointed leaders. I’ve been in a few meetings in which I’ve half-expected that same thing to happen at any moment!
