Cain, Balaam, and Korah

Text: Jude 11

They have gone the way of Cain (Genesis 4:3-8) – served God according to his desires, convenience

They have rushed headlong into the error of Balaam (Numbers 22) – pursued the things (riches) of this life

They have perished in the rebellion of Korah (Numbers 16) – thought of himself more highly than he ought to have thought

The fate of such persons (Jude 12-15)

What should we do?

  • Remember these warnings (v. 17-19)
  • Build up your faith (v. 20)
  • Keep yourselves in the love of God (v. 21)
  • Strengthen and save others (v. 22-23)
