“But you, beloved, remember the words which were spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
When you see people defying God blatantly, you may just want to throw up your hands and wonder, “Is the Bible the Word of God after all?” Friend, apostasy proves the Bible is the Word of God. You need to understand that. It’s precisely as God said it would be. God is not up in Heaven wringing His hands. And you don’t need to be overwhelmed and bent out of joint like something has suddenly gone awry. Everything is on schedule. The Word of God stands.
That’s what Jude was saying to these people: “Now, beloved, remember the words of the Apostles. It is exactly as they told you it would be.” And it is so important that we remember this, that there are going to be these apostates in the last days.
Make a list of promises of God that might encourage you when life is overwhelming. Keep this somewhere that you can review, and contemplate them frequently.
