Quoted

14 It was also about these men that Enoch, in the seventh generation from Adam, prophesied, saying, “Behold, the Lord came with many thousands of His holy ones, 15 to execute judgment upon all, and to convict all the ungodly of all their ungodly deeds which they have done in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him” (Jude).

In our Lord’s day The Book of Enoch was a favorite among the Jewish people, though it was not included in their canon of Scripture, nor did Jesus ever quote from it. But our Lord’s half-brother did, right here—from its first chapter in the last paragraph. Does this elevate The Book of Enoch to the status of Scripture? No, but it does elevate the quote, for here it lies, right here in our accepted canon of the New Testament. And just who are these “holy ones” who will “execute judgment” and “convict all the ungodly” of their sins, and when will this happen? Perhaps the answer lies in Deuteronomy 33:2, where it says from Mt. Sinai God “came from the midst of ten thousand holy ones; at His right hand there was flashing lightning for them.”

So, what is my point? My point is, you never know what the Lord may use from us in a great way. Even though what we say and do will never be elevated to Scripture (for the canon is indeed closed)—yet, that does not mean He cannot use those things we do and say in such an incredible way that they might be recorded even in the annals of heaven.

Lord, help us This Day to live our lives so that You might use them in a great way. Amen.
