Jude 1:5-6 – …destroyed them that believed not.

Jude 1:5-6
 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.
6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

-Wickedness abounds more every day and many times it seems as though the wicked are receiving the Lord’s favor.  But Jude would be quick to remind us that even though God spared all of the Jews from Egyptian bondage, He still destroyed those who refused to believe in the wilderness.  At first they appeared to slip by, but they reaped what they had sown.  Likewise the rebellious angels who turned on God in Heaven, they are being held awaiting final judgment and although they have yet to be fully punished for their unbelief, they will certainly reap what they have sown.  These examples serve to frighten us, but only so that we may be motivated not to follow after them.  For any of us who still breathe, it’s not too late to turn to the Lord and put our full confidence in Him to lead our present life and to ultimately bless us with the fullness of eternal life.  Don’t sow to the flesh as the wicked have done throughout the centuries, sow to the Spirit and reap life.
