Before All time

Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.
Jude 24–25

Before All time
            Jude closes His letter by emphasizing that salvation is not based on our own reason or strength but is wholly our heavenly Father’s work in Christ Jesus. His words, given by the Holy Spirit, give us great comfort when we are assaulted by the devil, the world, and our own sinful flesh. Because they remind us that before all time and now and forever God has defeated the devil and his minions and we rest secure in the hands of our loving Father. Only God could keep us in the one true faith by the power of His Word and Only His Son Jesus Christ could reconcile us to the Father. And because these things have happened, we need never fear for He keeps us from stumbling and washes us in His blood so that we will be presented blameless on our judgment day. And to this, we say amen.
