Verses 6&7 "Remember the examples!" Jude provides his readers a sure outcome of judgment to those he describes as apostates in verse 4 1) "..saving a people...out of..Egypt" a) Through-out the entire flow of the Bible the Israelites are the prominent example of "what not to do". In verse 5 we see the judgment God brought on them for not believing in His promise to safely bring them into the Promise Land Number 13:1-33. Again we see the warning of this judgment in Hebrews 3:7-18. b) The Israelites judgment was that would not enter "God's Rest" but instead die in the wilderness due to unbelief. 2) "And angels" a) Most commentators agree that the angels spoken about in verse 6 are described in Genesis 6:1-8. In this chapter, the wickedness of the world is at it's highest peak and God is about to bring His flood of judgement. Among the wicket are a group of people that were comprised of angels and human women who had brought about offspring. b) Another possible option were the angels that would have fallen with Satan before Genesis 3 and later described in Revelation 12:4 c) The judgement that awaits them is eternal judgement in the lake of fire with Satan. 3) "just as Sodom and Gomorrah" a) In Genesis 19:1-29 we are given the last example of a wicket city known as Sodom and Gomorrah. This city was known for it's wickedness and God informed Abraham that judgement was coming if the city did not repent. b) The sin this city was most known was their overwhelming lust, including homosexuality. c) Their judgement was complete and total annihilation of the city by burning sulfur.
Verse 5 Jude reminds us here of the great mercy of God in providing real life examples that are used as His plead for our hearts to repent and turn back to Him in faith. This is a great reminder also of 2 Peter 3:9 where Peter explans that though not all will be saved, God's desire is that all will come to the knowledge of the truth.
