The Lord Knows...

God is sovereign, omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient! The Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials. This brings comfort to believers. He also knows how to hold the unrighteous (including false teachers) for punishment on the day of judgment. This is especially true of those who follow the corrupt desire of the flesh and despise authority and those who are bold & arrogant and are not afraid to slander celestial beings. This shows their ignorance and comtempt. "For certain individuals whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord...These people slander whatever they do not understand, and the very things they do understand by instinct--as irrational animals do--will destroy them. Woe to them! They have taken the way of Cain; they have rushed for profit into Balaam's error; they have been destroyed in Korah's rebellion." (Jude 4, 10-11) There are always consequences to our actions/decisions. Live to glorify God, not gratify self! It's a terrible sin to corrupt the Church...to lead God's children astray. Let those who do it take warning from what happened to the fallen angels (verse 4), to the world of Noah's time (verse 5), and to Sodom & Gomorrah (verse 6).
