The Coming Judgment Prophesied by Enoch – Jude 14-16

Jude 14-16

… Enoch, in the seventh generation from Adam, prophesied, saying, “Behold, the Lord came with many thousands of His holy ones, 15 to execute judgment upon all, and to convict all the ungodly of all their ungodly deeds which they have done in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.” 16 These are grumblers, finding fault, following after their own lusts; they speak arrogantly, flattering people for the sake of gaining an advantage.

 

Here is an interesting reference to a prophecy by Enoch, which is not recorded in Genesis, but here Jude gives it to us—so it is true and trustworthy.

In the context here (vv. 4-19), Jude describes for us certain ungodly persons in his day who had “crept in unnoticed.” That is, they had infiltrated the church. And we can be sure that this kind of evil has been going on all along. Jude quotes Peter when he said, “In the last time there shall be mockers, following after their own ungodly lusts” (v. 18 from 2 Pt. 3:3).

Though this chapter of Jude is meant as a warning for us of the evils of our day and that Christ is coming soon to rapture us (v. 21), this particular text and prophecy speaks of the second phase of His coming, when He comes in judgment. His judgment will be on all the ungodly (unbelievers); and though we the church will be among His holy ones (who are clothed in white; Rev. 3:4-5; 19:14), scripture seems to indicate that the angels and not the church will be the executioners (Matt. 13:39; 2 Thess. 1:7-8).
