The Separation Of The SHEEP And The GOATS
Matatyahuw (Matthew) 25:31-33
31 “When the Ban (“Son”) of man shall come in his glory, and all the qaduwsh (H6918; G40 hagios; “holy”) angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: 32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his SHEEP from the GOATS: 33 And he shall set the SHEEP on his right hand, but the GOATS on the left.”
Let’s take a look at who are the SHEEP and who are the GOATS.
Ye Blessed Who Inherit The Kingdom
Matatyahuw (Matthew) 25:34-36
34 “Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, YE BLESSED of my Ab (H1 Head), inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.”
Who are these “YE BLESSED”?
One Of The Least Of These My Brethren
Matatyahuw (Matthew) 25:37-40
37 “Then shall the RIGHTEOUS answer him, saying, Aduwny (Adonai), when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? 39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto ONE OF THE LEAST OF THESE MY BRETHREN, ye have done it unto me.”
Who are these “ONE OF THE LEAST OF THESE MY BRETHREN”?
The Three Groups Of People
There are three groups of people identified in the account of the separation of the SHEEP and the GOATS which will occur when YAHUWSHUWAH HaMashyach (The Messiah) returns to the earth as follows:
1. there are SHEEP
2. there are GOATS
3. there are ONE OF THE LEAST OF THESE MY BRETHREN
Judgment Begins At The House Of YAHUWAH
1 Kapah (Peter) 4:17 “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of YAHUWAH: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the bashuwrah (H1309 glad tidings; G2098 euaggelion) of YAHUWAH?”
The Resurrection And Change Occurs “Before” The Separation
Those called the SHEEP in the account do not refer to the people of YAHUWAH because the people of YAHUWAH are being separated and judged right now, and they will immediately be resurrected or–if alive–changed and caught up into the air at the coming of YAHUWSHUWAH. The people of YAHUWAH are represented by the ones who are called ONE OF THE LEAST OF THESE MY BRETHREN who will receive IMMORTAL and INCORRUPTIBLE bodies “before” the separation. The SHEEP that are separated from the GOATS are in the flesh. These particular SHEEP are appointed to live in The Kingdom of YAHUWAH in the flesh.
These RIGHTEOUS SHEEP Don’t Know YAHUWSHUWAH
It is obvious that this group which are called RIGHTEOUS SHEEP do not even know or recognize YAHUWSHUWAH. They do not know that he is the Mashyach (Messiah) who is talking to them. This will not be the case with the people of YAHUWAH who are the called and chosen who will be already resurrected and changed “BEFORE” the separation of the SHEEP and the GOATS. The people of YAHUWAH will know and recognize their Mashyach (Messiah) named YAHUWSHUWAH because they have been given a description of what he looks like in The Word (“Bible”), and they know the signs of the appointed time of his coming.
These RIGHTEOUS SHEEP Don’t Know The People Of YAHUWSHUWAH
These RIGHTEOUS SHEEP did not know that they were helping the called and chosen people of YAHUWAH and YAHUWSHUWAH. The RIGHTEOUS SHEEP simply thought they were helping a human being who needed drink, food, clothes, housing, medicine, and a visit in prison. The RIGHTEOUS SHEEP have not lost their feelings and pity for the Man Kind. These RIGHTEOUS SHEEP will enter The Kingdom of YAHUWAH based on how they treated ONE OF THE LEAST OF THESE MY BRETHREN of the people of YAHUWAH during their lifetime. The RIGHTEOUS SHEEP will get the opportunity to know YAHUWAH and YAHUWSHUWAH.
The CURSED GOATS On The Left Hand
Matatyahuw (Matthew 25:41-44
41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye CURSED, into EVERLASTING FIRE, PREPARED FOR THE DEVIL AND HIS ANGELS 42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Aduwny (Adonai), when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
Who Are The CURSED GOATS?
The CURSED GOATS on the left hand side are the WICKED who did not give the called and chosen of ONE OF THE LEAST OF THESE MY BRETHREN of the people of YAHUWAH and YAHUWSHUWAH help when they needed drink, food, clothes, housing, medicine, and a visit in prison.
The CURSED GOATS will be cast into EVERLASTING FIRE which is equal to EVERLASTING DEATH or PERMANENT DEATH which there is no resurrection from. The ruwach (H7307 “spirit”), soul, and body are destroyed in this EVERLASTING FIRE.
Matatyahuw (Matthew) 25:45-46
45 “Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46 And these shall go away into EVERLASTING PUNISHMENT: but the RIGHTEOUS into LIFE ETERNAL.”
What Is EVERLASTING PUNISHMENT?
There are those who teach that the Man Kind will be PUNISHED for sin by living forever, eternal, and everlasting in the EVERLASTING FIRE, but the CURSED WICKED GOATS will not receive ETERNAL LIFE of any kind—not even in the EVERLASTING FIRE.
Some of the RIGHTEOUS among the Man Kind will live ETERNAL LIFE in the flesh on the earth, while others will live ETERNAL LIFE in IMMORTAL and INCORRUPTIBLE new bodies that have the ability to live in heaven.
2 Thessalonians 2:10-12
10 “And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because THEY RECEIVED NOT THE LOVE OF THE TRUTH, that they might be saved.11 And for this cause YAHUWAH shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be DAMNED who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”
These people have heard the true message of salvation, but they rejected it. They will be DAMNED with the CURSED WICKED GOATS, “if” they do not change.
The Worship By The Left Nations
Zakaryah (Zechariah) 14:16
16 “And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against YAHRUWSHALAM shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, YAHUWAH of hosts, and to keep the FEAST OF TABERNACLES.”
Not all the people left of the nations will be CURSED and DAMNED.
Some will be given the opportunity to worship YAHUWAH.
The Nations Will Be Judged In The Commandments
After the CURSED and DAMNED WICKED have been cast out, those that are left in the nations outside of the land of YAHSHARAHAL will be tried, tested, and judged in the commandments of YAHUWAH. We are told that the FEAST OF TABERNACLES will be reinstated as an observance.
PUNISHMENT For Disobedience
Zakaryah (Zechariah) 14:17-19
17 “And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto YAHRUWSHALAM to worship the King, YAHUWAH of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain. 18 And if the family of Matsaryam (Egypt) go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith YAHUWAH will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the FEAST OF TABERNACLES. 19 This shall be the PUNISHMENT of Matsaryam (Egypt), and the PUNISHMENT of all nations that come not up to keep the FEAST OF TABERNACLES.”
Plague And No Rain
There will still be sin and rebellious people on the earth when YAHUWSHUWAH and YAHUWAH return, therefore, those among the nations that are left who refuse to observe the FEAST OF TABERNACLES and commandments of YAHUWAH will be PUNISHED with plague and no rain.
The FEAST OF TABERNACLES
39 “Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto YAHUWAH seven days: on the first day shall be a sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a sabbath. 40 And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before YAHUWAH your Alahyakam seven days.”
They Lived In Temporary BOOTHS
41 “And ye shall keep it a feast unto YAHUWAH seven days in the year. It shall be a statute for ever in your generations: ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month. 42 Ye shall dwell in BOOTHS seven days; all that are YAHSHARAHAL born shall dwell in BOOTHS: 43 That your generations may know that I made the children of YAHSHARAHAL to dwell in BOOTHS, when I brought them out of the land of Matsaryam (Egypt): I am YAHUWAH your Alahyakam. 44 And Mashah (Moses) declared unto the children of YAHSHARAHAL the feasts of YAHUWAH.”
A Community Camp Out
The FEAST OF TABERNACLES commemorates the time when YAHUWAH made His chosen people live in temporary houses. The houses were made of “boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook.” It is possible that the people will “literally” have to make the booths in this manner again. It is a time of commemoration and reminder of where YAHUWAH has increased us from. We are to rejoice in this time of community camp out.
One Of Least Of These My Brethren
Some of the RIGHTEOUS SHEEP will enter The Kingdom of YAHUWAH in the flesh. The phrase “ONE OF THE LEAST OF THESE MY BRETHREN” represent the called and chosen people who received the true message of salvation, believed it, repented, begin to learn the laws of YAHUWAH, and begin to keep the laws of YAHUWAH during their lifetime. The called and chosen believe that there is eternal salvation in none other names accept YAHUWAH and YAHUWSHUWAH.
Take Heed! Shamar! Raah!
