Most scholars agree that Jude who wrote the Epistle was one of the sons of Joseph and Mary and thus a younger brother of Jesus. If so, his brother was James the Just, who was the pastor and leader of the Jerusalem church.
Do we also consider he is the apostle Jude, one of the twelve? In Matthew the apostle Jude is called “Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus (Mt. 10:3). In the Gospel of Mark, he is called “Thaddaeus” (Mark 3:18). Luke refers to him as “Judas” (Jude) the son (brother) of James (the Great). Jude, the Apostle, would then be the grandson of Zebedee.
This would indicate the Epistle was written by Jude, the brother of Jesus.
Jude 1-2: “Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and the brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called: Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied.”
Jude 1-3: Passion Translation: From Judah, a loving servant of Jesus, the Anointed One, and brother of James. I am writing to the chosen ones who are wrapped in the love of Father God-kept and guarded for Jesus, the Messiah. May God’s mercy, peace and love cascade over you!
The Apostle James was the elder brother of John the Beloved. With John and their father, Zebedee, he plied his trade as a fisherman in the Sea of Galilee. He is one of the three men who appear to comprise the inner circle of the Apostles—Peter, James and John. James and John were given the surname, Sons of Thunder (Boanerges).
In 1990, the call came to start a church. We officially incorporated. In retrospect, I now know that we were chosen to be a part of the ushering in of the Third Day Glory Church. At the time, I was preaching by vision and Spirit of Revelation. As in every move of God, we came under heavy persecutions. However, the Lord was more than faithful. He raised up dear Pastors, Prophets and Ministries to stand with us. Those great warriors continue to be a part of the Eldership of this ministry.
We had incredible visitations and mighty outpourings of the Glory of God in our meetings. Hindsight now reveals that without the persecution, we would never have dug in. Also, we had to be tested by persecution in order to overcome and be proven to produce fruit 30-60-100 fold.
In 1997, my husband’s company moved us to Houston, After a much needed rest and time to reflect on what had transpired in those 7-years in Baton Rouge, the Lord again directed me to start a new work here in Houston.
This came in along with the Golden Glory Revival. The Lord did not tell me that I would be a conduit of the Golden Glory, but that I was to prophesy it. I was preparing to teach on Gift of Miracles at a community Bible Study. Our friends, Barney and Joann Fuller, mailed me the book by Ruth Ward Heflin, Golden Glory. I read the book on a flight to Los Angeles. That night I awoke, sitting straight up in my bed. The room was filled with golden angels. They were all singing the song recorded by Candy Christmas, GLORY, GLORY, GLORY, THAT’S MY STORY.”
Prior to this visitation, the Lord spoke to me around November 2000, that wherever I went, I was to declare the Glory of God.
It seems that no matter where I preach in the Bible, I end up with only one message, the declaration of the Glory of God: Feast of Tabernacles, The Holy of Holies, the Mountain of the Last Days,The Overcomer, The Sons of God, The Kingdom of God, The Joseph Company, The Bride of Christ, The 144,000, The Remnant, Those who pass under the Rod, The Branch of the Lord, Those who follow the Lamb wherever He goes, Mt. Zion, New Jerusalem, etc. etc. All of this plus more tell only one story, “GLORY GLORY GLORY.
We are an apostolic ministry as well as prophetic. Our desire is to reveal Jesus Christ in the fulness of the Majesty of His Great power and Glory
“Until we all come in the unity of the faith, of the knowledge of the son of GOD, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of CHRIST.“
