The Ungodly


After the account in Genesis we see Enoch mentioned twice in the New Testament. We get a glimpse of Enoch's work and his public life in the book of Jude. Enoch's work includes his method, his message, and his manner.
 Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about them: “See, the Lord is coming with thousands upon thousands of his holy ones to judge everyone, and to convict all of them of all the ungodly acts they have committed in their ungodliness, and of all the defiant words ungodly sinners have spoken against him.” These people are grumblers and faultfinders; they follow their own evil desires; they boast about themselves and flatter others for their own advantage.  But, dear friends, remember what the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ foretold.  They said to you, “In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires.”  These are the people who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit.  But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life. Jude 14-21

The ungodly will be judged, but also those who follow Christ. We need to make sure we are walking with Christ, building our faith, and trusting in His plan. Amen?
