Jude14 Enoch Convicts the Ungodly
14 Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying,
"Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints, (holy ones/angels)
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."
I. Enoch walked with God and pleased God Heb 11:5 Enoch 1:1 The words of the blessing of Enoch, wherewith he blessed the elect and righteous, who will be living in the day of tribulation, when all the wicked and godless are to be removed. 5:4. But you have not been steadfast, nor done the commandments of the Lord, but you have turned away and spoken proud and hard words with your impure mouths against His greatness. Oh, you hard-hearted, you shall find no peace. 5 no mercy 6 and for you the godless there shall be a curse. And all the righteous/elect shall rejoice. And there shall be forgiveness of sins, and every mercy and peace and forbearance, There shall be salvation unto them, a goodly light. But for all of you sinners there shall be no salvation, but on you all shall abide a curse. 7 But for the elect/choice there shall be light and joy and peace, and they shall inherit the earth.
Micah 6:8 shown you good...what does the LORD require of you but to do justly, to love hesed, and to walk humbly with your God?
II. Saints (angels?) share in the judgment of ungodly believers (esp false teachers) 1Cor 6 Rev 20:4
Dan 7:22 Ancient of Days came, judgment was given to KJV the saints 5x of the Most High, time came for the saints to possess the kingdom
1Cor 6:2 Don't you know saints will judge the world? Rev 20:4 I saw thrones...sat on them, and judgment was committed to them
Pr 11:31 If the righteous will be recompensed on the earth, how much more the ungodly and the sinner.
Ps 149:6 praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand, 7 To execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; 8 To bind their kings/nobles 9 To execute on them the written judgment --- This honor have all His saints. Praise the LORD!
A. Those who are insensitive to the sin of others are usually insensitive to the HS conviction of their own sin.
B. Those who are oversensitive to the sin of others are often insensitive to the HS conviction of their own sin. (repressed guilt?blame)
C. Sensitivity to HS (thru Truth transforming our perspective acc His word) yields the same perspective that God has on our actions
D. Immature/carnal believers, who look at life thru the lens of world's values should not judge (lest they be judged-Mt 7:1 cx Jn 7:24 righteously)
E. Mature believers, whose minds have been transformed into conformity to Christ's are commanded to judge. Gal 6 spiritual restore
1Cor 2:14 natural man does not receive/accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned 15 But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. 16 we have the mind of Christ
Dt 11:16 Take heed to yourselves, lest heart be deceived...turn aside 1Cor 11:31 if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged
III. The Ungodly don't Know nor Do what God requires Jn 8:31 does His will, and will suffer just recompense/punishment Lk 12
Isa 56:10 His watchmen are blind, all ignorant 2Pt 3:5 willingly ignorant; all dumb dogs, cannot bark; Sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber
2Tim 3:2-4 lovers of self/pleasure vs God 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!
A. Titus 1:1 Apostle for faith of elect and the epignosis of the Truth leads to/accords with godliness 2 epi/based on the hope of eternal life
2Pt 1:3 all things re: life and godliness, thru the epi-knowledge of Him who called us by/to glory and virtue, 4...promises, that thru these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in world thru lust. 5 diligently add to faith..godliness
B. 1Tim 4:7 Train yourself to be godly; physical training=some value; godliness has value...for both the present life and the life to come
Titus 2:11 grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all. It teaches us to say ‘No’ to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope – the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify a people/His very own, eager to do what is good.
C. The ungodly pursue their desires and temporal lusts, while the godly pursue God's desires (esp for themselves) like faith/hope/love
Love vs self-centeredness; Hope vs worldliness focus on this life; Faith vs trust in ourselves/what we see vs in God and His promises Mt 6:33
1Tim 6:11 flee (v10 love of $/lusts); and pursue 2Tim 2:22 righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience...12 fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life
APP: Jn 13:17 If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.
IV. The Ungodly seek to destroy the Godly and God's work/reputation with their demonic lying words
Mt 11:18 John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, 'He has a demon”
Mk 3:22 scribes who came down from Jerusalem said, "He has Beelzebub," and, "By the ruler of the demons He casts out demons."
Jn 10:20 many of them said, "He has a demon 7:20 and is mad. Why do you listen to Him?"
Acts 24:5 this man a plague, a creator of dissension...all Jews in the world, a ringleader of sect/cult 6 He even tried to profane the temple
Ps 31:13 slander of many 14 I trust in You...18 lying lips be silenced, insolent things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous
Mal 3:13 harsh words cx me...14 vain to serve God: what profit that we have kept/watch his ordinance... walked mournfully before LORD
Mt 12:36 But I say to you that for every idle/unprofitable word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment
