The “sheep” shall show forth His righteousness towards “strangers” who will be sent out by Him to preach His words (the “angels”) to their ears. They will honor Him as King for they will DO His commandment to have love for the “least brothers” of His who will be sent to preach to the churches. Matthew 25:40-46 KJV (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. But the “goats” will resist what they will hear and speak evil of the “least brothers” that will be sent to speak His words of life to them. They will follow after their father and speak his words of evil (the devil and his “angels”). They will not be found giving "meat in due season" to those sent out by Him. They will be found not entertaining strangers and forgetting brotherly love. All of those who will do unrighteousness at the hearing of His words is of the wicked. (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: They will not recognize a “stranger” sent by Him as they will think in their hearts that the “Lord delays His coming” and will begin to “beat” upon the fellowservants of the Lord with malicious words….and false accusations. (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. They will not recognize the day of their visitation as they will hear His voice and reject what He has to say because they will forget to have brotherly love. Their works will not be found complete in the sight of God and so their names will be blotted out of the book of life. (44) Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? (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. Whoever will not be found remembering to let brotherly love continue shall be cast into the “lake of fire”. Revelation 20:14-15 KJV (14) And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. (15) And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. They will not see the “strangers”….the “least brothers” of His…as messengers of His words as they will reason that the Lord delays His coming and will begin to beat upon them with malicious words. Many will join together in their bad behavior as they will not believe in what the Spirit is saying. Matthew 24:48-51 KJV (48) But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; (49) And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; (50) The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth as they will lament what they hear and rage against any who will speak His words. They will say that they love God but will show hatred toward the brothers....the least brothers of His. (51) And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. But we are to suffer in patience and in faith as they will persecute us for our faith. Our faith shall be tested by their “fire”…the second death. We are to be faithful unto the “death” as Jesus did not render evil for evil upon the cross. We shall not be hurt of the “second death”….the “fire” that will come out of their mouths in order to “flame” us with their persecutions. 2 Thessalonians 1:4-10 KJV (4) So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure: (5) Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer: There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth for God shall recompense tribulation to them that will trouble us with their malicious words and false accusations. (6) Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you; They will not put up with the words of the Lord as they will be tormented in the presence of His “angels”…His words. (7) And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, (8) In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: They will be punished from the presence of the Lord for they will not be able to bear what they will hear and speak evil of it. The wicked will have no part in the appearing life of Jesus in our mortal flesh….the glory of His power. (9) Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; (10) When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day. They will reject authority like Korah and company in their rebellion and will suffer the “second death”. We are to depart from the unbelievers who will reject authority in this coming time. We are to come out of the “tents”…out of their denominations….unless we share in their sins (evil speaking) and plagues as God shall trouble them. Numbers 16:23-33 KJV (23) And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, (24) Speak unto the congregation, saying, Get you up from about the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram. (25) And Moses rose up and went unto Dathan and Abiram; and the elders of Israel followed him. (26) And he spake unto the congregation, saying, Depart, I pray you, from the tents of these wicked men, and touch nothing of theirs, lest ye be consumed in all their sins. (27) So they gat up from the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram, on every side: and Dathan and Abiram came out, and stood in the door of their tents, and their wives, and their sons, and their little children. (28) And Moses said, Hereby ye shall know that the LORD hath sent me to do all these works; for I have not done them of mine own mind. The “second death” will not be like the common death of all men…. (29) If these men die the common death of all men, or if they be visited after the visitation of all men; then the LORD hath not sent me. (30) But if the LORD make a new thing, and the earth open her mouth, and swallow them up, with all that appertain unto them, and they go down quick into the pit; then ye shall understand that these men have provoked the LORD. (31) And it came to pass, as he had made an end of speaking all these words, that the ground clave asunder that was under them: (32) And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their houses, and all the men that appertained unto Korah, and all their goods. (33) They, and all that appertained to them, went down alive into the pit, and the earth closed upon them: and they perished from among the congregation. Let us not think in our hearts that the Lord delays His coming…for it will come as a thief in the night. We are to be found of Him letting brotherly love continue in the presence of the “strangers” sent out by Him to preach His Word of Truth. It will not conform to existing teachings of carnal men who strive over who is accounted the greatest among them. Let us entertain strangers and their words….for it may be the Lord who we will be receiving for He comes to us as a “thief in the night”. This is why we are to “watch and be sober” at all times toward all people. 1 Thessalonians 5:1-9 KJV (1) But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. (2) For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. Those who will think that He delays His coming will say also that they will have “peace and safety” to speak evil of those they will not agree with. There will be no peace and safety to speak evil against those who come in the Father’s name….His authority. They will be found “sleeping”….forgetting to let brotherly love continue as they will be “drunk” upon the wine of wrath and will contend with what they will hear. (3) For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. (4) But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. (5) Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. (6) Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. (7) For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. (8) But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. (9) For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, We can not bless ourselves in our hearts and say “I shall have peace” as we walk in the imagination of our own hearts thinking that we can behave in evil towards what we hear. We are to give His servants sent out by Him to preach His words a “cup of cold water”…..a refreshing response….a loving response…and not add “drunkenness to thirst”…..wrath to those who thirst for a refreshing response. Deuteronomy 29:19-29 KJV (19) And it come to pass, when he heareth the words of this curse, that he bless himself in his heart, saying, I shall have peace, though I walk in the imagination of mine heart, to add drunkenness to thirst: (20) The LORD will not spare him, but then the anger of the LORD and his jealousy shall smoke against that man, and all the curses that are written in this book shall lie upon him, and the LORD shall blot out his name from under heaven. (21) And the LORD shall separate him unto evil out of all the tribes of Israel, according to all the curses of the covenant that are written in this book of the law: (22) So that the generation to come of your children that shall rise up after you, and the stranger that shall come from a far land, shall say, when they see the plagues of that land, and the sicknesses which the LORD hath laid upon it; (23) And that the whole land thereof is brimstone, and salt, and burning, that it is not sown, nor beareth, nor any grass groweth therein, like the overthrow of Sodom, and Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboim, which the LORD overthrew in his anger, and in his wrath: (24) Even all nations shall say, Wherefore hath the LORD done thus unto this land? what meaneth the heat of this great anger? (25) Then men shall say, Because they have forsaken the covenant of the LORD God of their fathers, which he made with them when he brought them forth out of the land of Egypt: (26) For they went and served other gods, and worshipped them, gods whom they knew not, and whom he had not given unto them: (27) And the anger of the LORD was kindled against this land, to bring upon it all the curses that are written in this book: (28) And the LORD rooted them out of their land in anger, and in wrath, and in great indignation, and cast them into another land, as it is this day. (29) The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.
