Warnings and reminders
Numbers 15 /2-3John, Jude
15:39 The tassels will remind you of the commands of the LORD, and that you are to obey his commands instead of following your own desires and going your own ways, as you are prone to do.
2John:7-8 Many deceivers have gone out into the world. They do not believe that Jesus Christ came to earth in a real body. Such a person is a deceiver and an antichrist. Watch out, so that you do not lose the prize for which we have been working so hard. Be diligent so that you will receive your full reward.
3John:5 Dear friend, you are doing a good work for God when you take care of the traveling teachers who are passing through, even though they are strangers to you.
:7-8 For they are traveling for the Lord and accept nothing from those who are not Christians. So we ourselves should support them so that we may become partners with them for the truth.
Jude:5 I must remind you–and you know it well–that even though the Lord rescued the whole nation of Israel from Egypt, he later destroyed every one of those who did not remain faithful.
