2 Peter 2:4-10
For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness…
1. No society of men or policy can hinder the judgment of God, which He will bring upon them for their sins.
2. The same judgments of God are executed by contrary causes. The old world was destroyed by water, these cities by fire. Sinners should not think themselves safe because they have escaped one judgment, for when they are farthest off from one evil, another is ready to fall upon them (Amos 5:19).
3. Extreme judgments follow extreme sins.
4. They that are unto others examples of sin shall be also unto them examples of punishment.
(Wm. Ames, D. D.)
