But these people blaspheme all that they do not understand, and they are destroyed by all that they, like unreasoning animals, understand instinctively.
“These people” refer to the false teachers who do the opposite of Archangel Michael. Jude compares them to unreasoning animals who act by instinct and not in the Spirit. They assume that they have the power to cast out demons and strongholds when in actuality, they do not. In our struggles, we need to remember that the power is in Christ and in Christ alone.
Jude reassures the sheep once again, that even though they may seem to have thriving ministries, they will be destroyed at the end.
Are we presumptuous about things we do not understand?
“It is always a great temptation to act as if I have more power than I have. I must not be presumptuous. Satan is a dangerous enemy and I must be sober and vigilant as I go through this life. It is a great reminder to always go back to God as the sole source of power and authority and not get ahead of myself.”
How about you?
