  • Deliverance From The Worst

    Jude 1:5-11 (New King James Version)

    5] But I want to remind you, though you once knew this, that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe. 6] And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day; 7] as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. 8] Likewise also these dreamers defile the flesh, reject authority, and speak evil of dignitaries. 9] Yet Michael the archangel, in contending with the devil, when he disputed about the body of Moses, dared not bring against him a reviling accusation, but said, “The Lord rebuke you!” 10] But these speak evil of whatever they do not know; and whatever they know naturally, like brute beasts, in these things they corrupt themselves. 11] Woe to them! For they have gone in the way of Cain, have run greedily in the error of Balaam for profit, and perished in the rebellion of Korah.

    Deliverance From The Worst

    The passage today paints a grim picture of the evils of this world and what happens to those who follow after them. Fortunately, God loved Israel so much that He could not bear the thought of this defilement they were constantly exposed to in Egypt. God put Israel there to correct them, but did not forsake them to the onslaught of worldliness.

    God has no intentions of delivering you over to carnal living either. He will do everything to protect His own from it. This may mean sharp correction. But it is well worth it in the end, when we see the end of the wicked from our safe vantage point in Him.

    For today: Praise the Lord for His protecting love.
