Jude tells the recepients/us that the creepers will be held accountable…in the way that God did in times past.
Verse 6 is very interesting…
And angels who did not keep their own domain,
but abandoned their proper abode,
He has kept in eternal bonds under darkness for the judgment of the great day,
There were angels who did not keep their own domain.
Precisely what/when this occurred we are not told, though I think we have a very good idea.
(We will cross-reference tomorrow!)
For today, note the facts.
Angels have domains.
Some did not keep them.
Some angels abandoned their proper abode.
They stepped outside of their role/functioning into some other domain.
God has these angels now in eternal bonds.
To a point in time…the judgment of the great day.
The Great Day?
Likely the Great Day of the wrath of God followed by the judgment of God.
What can we glean?
The Lord will punish.
The Lord will judge…in His time.
There was/is rebellion among divine beings.
God will deal with the creepers.
But, be forewarned.
Do not submit to the creepers.
Do not allow them to creep.
Stand firm in the truth of the Lord.
