“God’s Judgment on the Ungodly”–Part Four

          “And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, to execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him” (Jude 14-15).

          Just as space has black holes which irresistibly draw objects into its pitch-black darkness forever, so the Creator of space has “reserved the blackness of darkness forever” for the ungodly. The truth of God’s judgment on the ungodly has been revealed since the days of Enoch, who was born about three hundred years prior to Adam’s death.

          God’s timeless warning of His judgment on the ungodly needs somber consideration by every generation since Enoch’s. God’s pronouncement to the patriarch several millennia ago contains seven noteworthy characteristics.

          God’s judgment is universal: “to execute judgment on all…” From the Garden of Eden to the end of time, no one will ever be exactly like you. You are fearfully and wonderfully made in God’s image, and because of God’s immense creativity and power, you are unique. You are exceptional.

          Your personal exceptionality, however, does not make you a personal exception to God’s judgment.

          Like every other member of the human race, you will appear before the judgment seat of Christ to receive just recompense for the things you have done in life, according to what you have done, whether good or evil (2 Corinthians 5:10).

          Because of your creation, you are special.

          Because you are God’s special creation, you are accountable to God for the life you live. There are no exceptions, not even for you or me.

          God’s judgment is all-inclusive.
