The Sheep & The Goats ( Matthew 25:34-40 )


Elder James R Winfree Sr, God's Messenger, And, Our Holy Blessed Savior & King Transformational Apostle:


First of All, The Holy Spirit Is The Teacher here... And if you are your Pastors or Churches members serving and supporting and, ministering to the world before the Church, Christ body, you All are in Epic Sin!!!.


Matthew 25:34-36. Then the King will say to those on His right hand, “Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.” Make up the children of your minds of God, Is Jesus A Sheep or goat When He said I was, and by the way, who did Jesus called His Mother, Brothers and, sisters?


The sheep are invited to inherit the Kingdom that has been prepared for them. Notice the goats are not invited to enter the Kingdom, but inherit it and receive great privilege and honor in the kingdom. The reason for this reward is because of the way they treated Jesus Christ during their lifetime here on earth. Jesus sheep know His voice, They fed Him, gave Him food, clothed Him and visited Him in prison. Although these sons and daughters of God are glad they have received such a wonderful inheritance, they are nevertheless confused. So they ask what He means in Matthew 25:37-39. Are you being a blessing to your heavenly spiritual family are or you supporting religious buildings, and just your Pastors, and the places you all call, Church homes and fatting up sinners, you all better get this Right before you die and leave this world?


Matthew 25:37-39. Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, “Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?


Matthew 25:40. And the King will answer and say to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.” Who are the Lord Jesus Christ family, Sinners or Saints?


Jesus says that when these sons and daughters of God served His Church Body meaning each other first, it was as if they were serving Him. We must be careful to understand this accurately. We have all probably heard non-saved people and religious leaders use this passage to call us to acts of public service. We are told to go and feed the hungry because as we do that, it will be like we are feeding Christ. We are told to clothe the naked, and start a prison ministry, because as we do this, we are doing it for Christ.


We do know that even in this age of the church when we serve other Christ Believers, Followers, and Christians, it is as if we are serving Christ. Especially if these others are Christian brothers and sisters in need. We know from everywhere in Scripture that it is our responsibility to care for other Christians. And since all Christians are members of the body of Christ, when we serve other Christians, it is as if we are serving Christ. But most of you overlook this preacher and the ministry Christ sent me to do, is to be His blessing to God's sons and daughters and give them the true biblical truth of His Loving, Living Word.


Jesus teaches in Matthew 10:40-42 that if we receive Prophets and teachers and even do something small like give cups of cold water, then we will receive reward and praise from Jesus because it was as if we were doing these things to Him. We should all be involved in First feeding our heavenly spiritual family, the hungry, clothing the poor Believers if Christ, giving rest to the weary, visiting those in prison or sick at home. Although this is a Scriptural truth, Matthew 25. Period...


Here is the point. Jesus is the Word of God who became flesh of Man. During His life, He was rejected and despised by All of the Jewish people and the world...But He will turn and every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord of All and Over All.


Matthew 25:41. Then He will also say to those on the left hand, “Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels.” Most Of Today's Religious Leaders and their many followers will be on the Lord Jesus Christ LEFT, Very sad to say.


I really like how specific Christ is here. Christ refers to hell when He talked about the weeping and gnashing of teeth and the darkness outside. out hell, He is very specific in what He means. When He wants to clearly refer to Hell, He doesn’t leave any doubts about what He is talking about. He refers to hell as the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels. This is hell for goats and Not His sheep.


And notice He doesn’t mention anything about the outer darkness. And if Christ’s statement here isn’t clear enough, he elaborates again down in Matthew 25:46 about these goats being sent into everlasting punishment. Though religious leaders and people will lose reward and privilege in the Kingdom, such loss of reward, to my knowledge, is referred to as everlasting punishment. WOW!!!.


So these goats are the Religious leaders and their members'. they did exactly the opposite of everything that the sheep did. Jesus explains this in Matthew 25:42 and following. How many times must I SAY THIS, THE MINISTRY, ITS GIFTS, AND FINANCES AND IS FOR THE MEMBERS OF JESUS CHRIST FIRST?


Matthew 25:42-43. “For I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.” I PRAY THAT YOU ALL GET THIS RIGHT BEFORE YOU DIE AND LEAVE THIS WORLD, PLEASE!!!.


Matthew 25:44-45: Then they also will answer Him, saying, “Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?” Then He will answer them, saying, “Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.” Just look how you treat me and others like me, buy not trying to help, support the real true biblical ministry.


Whereas the sheep receive an inheritance in the Kingdom, these goats receive only condemnation and eternal punishment because they were thinking they were doing God's will, by supporting one ministry gift which is a Pastor, and God gave His other ministry gifts such as Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Teachers and many others in the Church Body.,.


This passage raises the issue of how we are saved. Never put any persons above God's Word, that means Any!!!.


But we all understand from the rest of Scripture that there is only one condition to receiving eternal life and that is believing in Jesus Christ for it. We also know from numerous passages that it is also possible for someone who is truly born again to be basically a failure in his or her Christian experience but still be saved only if they get things right before they die and leave this world.


Yet here, it seems as if the sheep are sheep because they took care of Christ’s spiritual family which is us who are born again...


There will most likely be some religious unfaithful leaders and people, just as there will be some unprepared virgins as in Matthew 25:1-13. But they are not mentioned here for three reasons. First, Jesus is speaking the truth, and the focus on the parable is on reward given to the faithful sons and daughters of God.


Finally, the separation of the unfaithful goats from the faithful sheep takes place right after this event. After the goats are removed from the scene, Jesus then turns to the sheep and divides them between the faithful and the unfaithful, and only invites the faithful sheep to take part in the wedding celebration. Other passages of Scripture teach this.


As far as the goats are concerned, we must understand that this judgment is a preliminary hearing. We are all familiar with the judicial process. A suspect is arrested, and then formally charged with a crime. At that point, his prison term begins. But at some future date, the actual trial takes place during which time, the different sides present their case, the books are opened, testimony is given, and finally, after all, is heard, the sentence is pronounced. If the person is convicted, they are sent back to prison. If they are found to be innocent, they released.


God is The righteousness and fair Judge, and the judgment upon the goats is a preliminary hearing. It is here where the goats are charged. It is a sentence. At the conclusion of the judgment day reign of Jesus Christ, there will be one final judgment upon all the lost people throughout time. It will be a judgment for those who died and went straight into hell, a judgment for those who were sent there at the end of the tribulation, and a judgment upon those who were born during the judgment day, but join with Satan in one final rebellion against Christ.


Christ will empty hell and take all the people throughout time who never believed in Him, and allow them to present their case before Him. The books will be opened, and they will be judged according to the impartial standard of the law. Each will be found conclusively guilty. There will be none that will be wrongfully accused or condemned. Even the devil and his demons will stand before the judge at this trial. And all of them will be sent to the lake of fire where they will receive eternal punishment.


Matthew 25:46 summarizes all of this.


Matthew 25:46. And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life. Now that you All Know, now what are you going to do with His Truth?


The goats go into everlasting punishment meaning the religious people and their leaders, but the righteous into eternal life. These sheep are not righteous because of their good works, but because they believed in Jesus for eternal life. The only way to become righteous is to believe in Jesus Christ and receive His righteousness. So once again we see the truth that eternal life is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone, but that inheritance in heaven is based on faithfulness. , we as the sheep of God in this age should live for Jesus as well. We must serve and minister to other members of the Church because in so doing, we are serving Christ First and His Bride, His Believers who are born again...


Therefore, we must be doing our best now to help, support and serve one another first and to persuade sinners that now is the time to believe, today is the day of decision. They must choose now, for they may not get another opportunity. Amen.
