Wesley's Notes for Jude 1:6

1:6 And the angels, who kept not their first dignity - Once assigned them under the Son of God. But voluntarily left their own habitation - Then properly their own, by the free gift of God. He reserved - Delivered to be kept. In everlasting chains under darkness - O how unlike their own habitation! When these fallen angels came out of the hands of God, they were holy; else God made that which was evil: and being holy, they were beloved of God; else he hated the image of his own spotless purity. But now he loves them no more; they are doomed to endless destruction. (for if he loved them still, he would love what is sinful:) and both his former love, and his present righteous and eternal displeasure towards the same work of his own hands, are because he changeth not; because he invariably loveth righteousness, and hateth iniquity. #2Pet 2:4|.


People's Bible Notes for Jude 1:6

Jude 1:6 And the angels which kept not their first state. These angels, then, had fallen. Created holy, they had sinned and become wicked angels, or evil spirits. See PNT "2Pe 2:4". And left their own habitation. Their own proper home. Some see a reference to Ge 6:2. He hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness. God hath imprisoned them and kept them for judgment.

Michael Hensley's comment on 2015-08-24 20:43:07:

I believe Jude 1:6 is saying when satan was removed from Heaven, those that believed in him, because he wanted the seat of GOD, satans angels believed they would become more powerful w him than w out him. KJV says RESERVED in everlasting chains, says they have a standing reservation under darkness. Not yet in that place of darkness, they roam w satan thru-out the world to deceive, under the direction of satan himself. Satan is only as powerful as GOD allows, so he needs all the assistance he can muster to do his damage. Don't believe satan has the power to be everywhere at the same time, as GOD can do, so he has a need for his angels. I don't believe satan as powerful as has been stated, as man- kind's weaknesses are probably greater. Satan's strengths come from man's weaknesses.

Where did they go, and what did they do?


Timothy's comment on 2014-04-07 04:12:01:

This is deep and my spirit has not been able to rest on it,but it keep telling me to search more into the story of creation and it 's more to the war in heaven,satan and his fallen then we could ever know.


Paul's comment on 2013-08-05 14:40:25:

We all existed before this life as spirits (Jeremiah 1:5). The angels that kept not their first estate refers to the spirits that followed Satan in open rebellion against God (See Revelations 12:7-11 and also 1 Adam and Eve 5:7 and 55:7-15). Everyone on the earth kept our first estate, many of us fought against Satan to help defeat him, and this Earth life is our second estate. Satan failed, so he and his followers are executing a backup plan, which is to get as many of us as possible to not keep our second estate (Revelations 12: 17).


Adrian's comment on 2012-08-23 19:07:03:

it will be a perpetual death they will be cast into the lake of fire this is the second death seperation from GOD and Light.
Angels and man will always exist weather it be in heaven or hell. with GOD or with out him.REVELATIONS 20 and 21 talks about second death and your name must be written in the book of life so get baptized in the name of jesus for the remisson of sins. Mark 16:16

On Butch's comment on 2011-07-27 17:23:09: the wailing and gnashing of teeth will be during the destruction


Butch's comment on 2011-07-27 18:23:09:

this passage and the next are regarding the fallen angels that left Heaven to come down to earth and mate w/ human women, mentioned in genesis 6:2 and 4.


David B. Sr.'s comment on 2011-06-21 04:46:43:

Ibelieve that God took aaway not only their habitation, but darkness is used to show their knowledge and understanding wa removed. Had satan kept his knowledge and wisdom he would never have crucified Christ. To me chains under darkness means without understanding of God's plans and his Church.


David's comment on 2010-12-07 08:11:50:

if on the day of judgement when God destroys the earth and heavens and creates knew ones,and the wicked and all that is on earth is burned to ashes and is NO MORE then why will there be wailing and gnashing of teeth?
