“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 thorough: “all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.”
Not only does God’s judgment fall on the entirety of your ungodly deeds—from the first to the final one—it is also executed upon your words and the way they were said.
“Therefore whatever you have spoken in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have spoken in the ear in inner rooms will be proclaimed on the housetops” (Luke 12:3). Jesus’ loving and wise counsel is, “I say to you, My friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear Him who, after He has killed, has power to cast into hell; yes, I say to you, fear Him!” (Luke 12:4-5).
God’s judgment is thorough.
