just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.
Jude, in this verse, uses another example from the old testament to substantiate his point that those who do not believe will be destroyed by God. The example he raises is from the well-known text in Genesis 18:22 – 19:29. As a result of their unbelief manifested in their sexual immorality, the people of Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed.
In the last 3 verses, Jude shows from the old testament, how God is consistent in dealing with unbelievers. How does it feel that God is consistent in his dealings with unbelievers?
“I think it gives me comfort in knowing that God is consistent. He is not flippant like how we humans are. He can read the hearts of all humans and he will render the appropriate judgement. God being consistent in his wrath for unbelievers gives me confidence that he will also be consistent in his eternal love for those who believe in Him. This Christmas, because of his consistency, John 3:16 will be true eternally. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.””
