Let’s Pray

And Continue With an Attitude of Prayer

Perhaps. . .

O LORD, we come to you as we do every day asking that You help us see Your Word to us. Unplug our ears. Rip away any sin that is crippling us from hearing You speak. Help us to listen carefully.  And may You grant us the understanding we need to be changed and transformed, for Your glory, and our good! Thank you!

If you get STUCK at any point in your discovery, stop, and pray!

What Did You LEARN

13. What did Enoch prophesy about this destruction of the ungodly (the 1st ever given by man)?

How dangerous are the ungodly in the church?

How severely does God deal w/them?

Sum It Up!

Enoch was the 7th from Adam: 

He walked with God, and God took him.

He was the 1st man to prophesy the coming of the Lord to judge.


Understand: The Lord is Coming to Execute Judgment

1. God is the Judge

Who judges justly and righteously.


2. God will give all Judgment to His Son.

 The One who gave Himself to be our Savior and Redeemer will become the Judge.


3. God will judge:


a. ALL!

    He will convict ALL the ungodly of:

       ALL their ungodly deeds; and

       ALL the harsh things they have said against Him.


 b. Publicly

        Each one of us and the nations will be judged.

Based on what?

c. On the basis of His Law

      All who sin with the Law, and

      All who sin apart from the Law, for their conscience tells them what is right and wrong.

      All who do not obey the gospel.

What is the result?

d. Those who did good deeds to a resurrection of life.

     Those who did evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment.


e. On a fixed day God will judge the world in righteousness.

Beginning on earth, and ending at the Great White Throne.


4. God’s Judgment Is:

Eternal hell, where the worm dies not and the fire is never quenched.


5. The Lord will come with many 1,000’s of His holy ones. 

His angels and His saints.


From Enoch to Peter –

In these last days, there will be those who mock the promise of the Lord’s coming.

The present heavens and earth are:

Reserved for fire;

Kept for the day of judgment; and

Destruction of the ungodly.

The Day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.

The heavens will pass away with a roar.

The elements will be destroyed with intense heat. 

The earth and its works will be burned up.

But, we are looking for a new heaven and earth where righteousness dwells.

What Did You LEARN


Check out GODcha’s #14 LEARN Question.

14. Describe these false ungodly men? What do they do?

Sum It Up!

The Ungodly False Persons Are:

Grumblers: grumble and complain against God and His Word, Truth, the faith!

Never content.

Israel was judged for grumbling.

We are commanded not to grumble.


Finding fault: they blame God and others for their circumstances.

We must learn to be content.


Follow after their own lusts: living for sinful self satisfaction.

Brings death.

We are to flee lusts.


Speak arrogantly: speak great swelling words of vanity to impress ignorant people.

What they say is empty and not true.


Flatter for the sake of gaining an advantage: this really amounts to greed.

A flattering mouth works ruin.

This is actually to show partiality for benefit.

Just reminding you, we answered straight from God’s Word.

No conjectures, etc.

Do you see how easy it is to really look at God’s Word?

Let’s Bow Before the Father

GRACIOUS FATHER IN HEAVEN, we praise You for who You are! You have been ever so loving and merciful to us, to give us this warning. We see there is a judgment! A judgment that is coming when You return. A judgment on all ungodly persons, all who are false. May this alarm impress upon our hearts a dread and a healthy fear. May we be like Jude, Peter and Paul, knowing and understanding this judgment, help us to convince all we know to embrace You Lord Jesus, the Savior, but also the Judge, who alone will save or destroy. Oh, help us to earnestly contend for the faith, the Truth, non-negotiable Truth. Oh, give us the boldness and the courage to stand with You and for You. We ask this in Your Son’s name. Amen!


Remember God’s pattern. Rest and worship the Lord!

See you in a couple of days.
