Today’s Bible Teaching and the song is about the Sheep and the Goats. Sheep are the true followers of Jesus, John 10:27 “My sheep listen to My voice; I know them, and they follow Me.” The goats think they are sheep but instead they have been deceived by Satan as the following teaching will reveal to you.

 

Please carefully and prayerfully read the song below before you play it. Then ask yourself, Am I a goat or a sheep?

 

 

 
The Sheep and the Goats – Keith Green

 

 
And when the son man comes, and all the holy angels with him,
Then shall he sit on his glorious throne,
And he will divide the nations before him, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.
And He shall put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left,
And He shall say to the sheep come ye, blessed of my father,
Inherit the kingdom I have prepared for you from the foundation of the world,
For I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat,
I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink,
I was naked, and you clothed me,
I was a stranger, and you invited me in,
I was sick, and I was in prison, and you came to me.
Thank you! enter into your rest.
And they shall answer him, yes, they shall answer him,
And they’ll say, lord, when?
When were you hungry lord, and we gave you something to eat?
Lord, when were you thirsty? I can’t remember.
And we gave you drink?
Huh, when were you naked lord, and we clothed you?
And lord, when were you a stranger and we invited you in?
I mean, we invited lots of people in lord. I could never forget that face.
And lord, when were you sick and we visited you?
Or in prison, and we came to you? lord, tell us?
In as much as you did it to the least of my bretheren, you’ve done it unto me.
Oh yes, as much as you’ve done it to the very least of my bretheren, you’ve done it,
You’ve done it unto me. enter into your rest.
Then he shall turn to those on his left, the goats.
Depart from me, you cursed ones, into everlasting fire,
Prepared for the devil and his angels.
For I was hungry, and you gave me nothing to eat,
I was thirsty, and you gave me nothing to drink,
I was naked, out in the cold, in exposure, and you sent me away,
I was a stranger, and I knocked at your door,
But you didn’t open, you told me to go away,
I was sick, racked in pain upon my bed,
And I begged, and prayed, and pleaded that you’d come, but you didn’t,
I was in prison, and I rotted there,
I’d prayed that you’d come.
I heard your programs on the radio, I read your magazines, but you never came.
Depart from me!
Lord, there must be some mistake, when?
Lord, I mean, when were you hungry lord and we didn’t give you something to eat?
And lord, when were you thirsty, and we didn’t give you drink?
I mean, that’s not fair, well, would you like something now?
Would one of the angels like to go out and get the lord a hamburger and a coke?
Oh, you’re not hungry, yeah, I lost my appetite too.
Uh lord uh, lord, when were you naked,
I mean lord, that’s not fair either lord,
We didn’t know what size you wear.
Oh lord, when were you a stranger lord,
You weren’t one of those creepy people who used to come to the door, were you?
Oh lord, that wasn’t our ministry lord. we just didn’t feel led, you know?
Lord, when were you sick? what did you have, anyway?
Well, at least it wasn’t fatal, oh, it was?
I’m sorry lord, I would have sent you a card.
Lord, just on last thing we want to know,
When were you in prison lord? what were you in for anyway?
I had a friend in levenworth
Enough!
In as much as you’ve not done it unto the least of my bretheren,
You’ve not done it unto me.
In as much as you’ve not done it unto the least of my bretheren,
You’ve not done it unto me. depart from me.
And these shall go away into everlasting fire.
But the righteous into eternal life!
And my friends, the only difference between the sheep and the goats,
According to this scripture,
Is what they did, and didn’t do!!
 

 

 
Still Preachin
By Stanley Hamilton
 

 

(1 John 2: 3,4) “And hereby know we that we know Him, if we keep His commandments, He that saith I know, Him and keepeth not His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.”

Sadly, many Christians have been taught that once they respond to an invitation, pray for forgiveness of sin, shake the preacher’s hand, get baptized and join the church, that Heaven is ASSURED them FOREVER. From then on, they continue life as usual. NOT SO! This cannot be.

The Christian life is to reflect the righteousness of Jesus. We are to walk in the “newness of life” (Rom. 6:4). There is nothing new about the old sinful life.

We now have a new LORD and a new way to live. WE follow Jesus and OBEY HIS COMMANDMENTS! The PROOF of salvation is that we keep His commandments. Jesus said, (Matt. 7:21) ” . . .Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of Heaven, but he that doeth the will of my Father, which is in Heaven.” They supposedly worked in the Lord’s Name, and presented themselves, expecting to enter in. . . . . .their SIN KEPT THEM OUT! They perhaps had been forgiven of their sin, but had resubmitted to sin (Romans 6:16) and AGAIN become entangled in the yoke of bondage.

THROUGH GRACE, God gave us a second chance to be in fellowship with Him (to walk in HIS LIGHT). IF, IF, IF we walk in the light ( obedient to God’s Word) AS HE IS IN THE LIGHT, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, His Son ,cleanses us from all sin (1 JOHN 1:7) . . . . . . But what if one chooses to continue the old path, AFTER BEING SAVED, will God force him into Heaven anyway?

 

 

 

 
The Sheep and the Goats
By Jesus
 

 

“But when the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit upon his glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered in his presence, and he will separate the people as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will place the sheep at his right hand and the goats at his left.

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world. For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.’

“Then these righteous ones will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you something to drink? Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing? When did we ever see you sick or in prison and visit you?’

“And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!’

“Then the King will turn to those on the left and say, ‘Away with you, you cursed ones, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his demons. For I was hungry, and you didn’t feed me. I was thirsty, and you didn’t give me a drink. I was a stranger, and you didn’t invite me into your home. I was naked, and you didn’t give me clothing. I was sick and in prison, and you didn’t visit me.’

“Then they will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and not help you?’

“And he will answer, ‘I tell you the truth, when you refused to help the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were refusing to help me.’

“And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous will go into eternal life.” Matthew 25:31-46
