Jude 12:12 – These are spots in your love feasts, while they feast with you without fear, serving only themselves. They are clouds without water

Jude12:14-15 – Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying, “Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints, 15 to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.”

In the book of Jude the author is trying to give the people an understanding of what false Christ are like, or we could say false Apostles, Prophets, etc.. One of the comparisons he uses to describe them is “clouds without water” or we could say without “rain”.

This is so interesting, “Have you ever seen a cloud without rain?” It looks clean and brilliantly white, it almost shines in the sky because of it’s stunning white color. Yet the wind can carry it away quickly because of the lack of substance and weight.

The true anointed ones that God sends on the earth, have a nature like God. For when God appeared in the old testament, He came in the appearance of a dark cloud with lightening and water within. A cloud “with” rain looks dark, heavy, and intimidating on the outside, but within, it carries all of the substance that the earth truly needs. These are His “anointed” ones.

Jesus appeared (the true cloud) dark to many from the outside, but within, He carried all of the substance man needed to grow in his walk. The Pharisees were intimidated at this “dark cloud” named Jesus. They judge Him by His dark appearance, and called Him a winebibber, yet they could not see that it was the same God that came to them in the wilderness.

When you discern a person, discern righteously. Discern by listening to the Holy Spirit. For those who may intimidate you or “seem” a bit dark, they just may be the ones you might want to listen too. Don’t look for the white clouds that are light and fluffy, look for the dark and heavy clouds, for in them, there is water. 🙂
