“The Lord Rebuke You”

Blessings folk!

We see saw yesterday that…

Jude 1:8

Yet in the same way these men,
also by dreaming,
defile the flesh,
and reject authority,
and revile angelic majesties.

These creepers act in the same way as the men of Sodom and Gomorrah.
They defile the flesh.
They reject authority.
They revile angelic majesties.

“Revile” means to “blaspheme”, “slander”.
They spoke that way of “angelic majesties” - the Greek word is “doxa”…speak of “weight”, “glory”, “praise”, “honor”.
The context of the next verse brings us the understanding that a majestic being is in sight in this verse.


Jude 1:9
But Michael the archangel,
when he disputed with the devil and argued about the body of Moses,
did not dare pronounce against him a railing judgment, but said,
“The Lord rebuke you!”

One very interesting verse.

Who do we see?

  • Michael the archangel…”the”? Yes, archangel over Israel (Daniel 12)
  • Devil
  • Moses’ body…he is dead
  • The Lord

Michael and the devil were disputing and arguing about the body of Moses.

Moses had died.
The devil claimed the right to his body.
Because Moses had killed.

Michael was apparently sent by the Most High to take Moses’ body,

In the dispute and arguing, Michael did not dare pronounce a railing judgment.

He did not use his power.
He did not judge.

The Lord judges.

Michael stated the fact.

“The Lord rebuke you!”

Rest in the Lord.
Trust not in your own ability.

Allow room for the Lord to avenge.
