To this only wise God, our one and only Saviour, Jude ascribes glory and majesty, dominion and power, from now to the days of eternity.

I might notice here an incidental evidence of the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ.  We read hear of God our Saviour; and is not Jesus Christ designated “Saviour” innumerable times throughout the New Testament?  To Him, along with His Father, shall all glory be ascribed by the hosts of angels and redeemed sinners throughout eternity.  His majesty will be exalted in the highest strains that the glorified can utter, His dominion over all creation celebrated; as indeed it should be now, for what hope could we have in the fight against spiritual wickedness in high places if our God did not exercise dominion even over them?  His power will destroy all the enemies of the people of God, including the seducers who would turn the grace of our God into lasciviousness.  When presented faultless in His presence, it may well be that we, like Christian in the Valley of the Shadow of Death, will look behind us with amazement at the countless snares, traps, and pitfalls through which we passed even without our knowledge.  Recognizing that it was only the power and the grace of our great God which delivered us safe to our heavenly abode, we shall gladly join in the chorus of praise to Him that sits upon the throne, and unto the Lamb forever.
