Matthew 25:31-46 ~ before Him will be gathered all the nations

Matthew 25:31-46

31 "When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne.

32 Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.

33 And he will place the sheep on his right,

but the goats on the left.

34 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 foundation of the world.

35 For I was hungry and you gave me food,
I was thirsty and you gave me drink,
I was a stranger and you welcomed me,
36 I was naked and you clothed me,
I was sick and you visited me,
I was in prison and you came to me.'

37 Then the righteous will answer him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? 38 And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? 39 And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?'

40 And the King will answer them,
'Truly, I say to you,
as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers,
you did it to me.'

41 "Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.'

44 Then they also will answer, 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?'

45 Then he will answer them, saying,
'Truly, I say to you,
as you did not do it to one of the least of these,
you did not do it to me.'

46 And these will go away into eternal punishment,

but the righteous into eternal life."

We start out in the same boat. On the same Journey. With the same Destination. Jesus Christ.

And we face the scariest thing on earth.

"Life or death."

In the beginning, God our Father saw Eve wanted to eat of the Tree, follow her own ideas, explore without God, determine good and evil. And God says today the world is worthy to be saved in Jesus Christ. We find out as children - we are not immortal. There is a day we look at our healthy bodies and realize we will perish. What we do with this idea is going to cause Life or death.

We are in the same boat as children when we find out we are perishable.
(They also will answer, 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?')  God says we all want to know what Salvation is.

Jesus tells us He is readily available to us. In His Word and in prayer conversations. Jesus could do all manner of things. The Theory of Relativity tells us in John 6, the Disciples were making their way very slowly, Jesus came into the boat and "Immediately" the boat was on the other side.

Jesus could have done this every day. Instead, Jesus chose to show us "Give us the Day." Jesus chose to do the life we have and travel with us. Jesus is telling us He found Joy in conversation. Joy in the day. Joy in the time. Joy in the Journey. Joy to heal. Joy to help. Jesus was 'in the same boat.' By choice. Telling is to find His Creation Good.

Jesus is explaining how to "Give us the Day." And this is familiar:

We have a long voyage in front of us from childhood. When Captain Cook arrived in Hawaii, he found the Hawaiians had discovered the mainland in some very shaky native boats and returned.

One of my most memorable discussions in the grocery store line was a man about 58 years old telling me after 30 years of marriage and in-law family - we all become who we really are. Similar to Mrs. Walter Cronkite saying she couldn't hold her stomach in indefinitely. We exhale eventually and we find out what we have done with our Spiritual Journey. Truly - this is the Journey that Matters.

Jesus tells us to have the faith of a child for a long, long journey.

We are finding we ride the boat with Jesus to discover the ferocious wind and waves and cry out, "We are Perishable."

If we jam our halo on too tight, eventually we are going to feel the pressure and pain. If every answer is a Sunday School Parable - we are in Trouble. And if the Scriptures were merely words - we would be the most to pity.

Leading us back to the question - what halo will we wear. The Bible has the Excellence of Truth.

We will all wear the halo of failure. Sin. And we will sink if we do not call to Jesus - He is the only One to walk upon the waters of our doubt and false belief what-was-past-is-always-the-future-Realism-not-Hope.

God is Living in our Soul when we only ask Him to. We have the Light of Hope as we pray. What shall we cry? What shall we pray? To Know God's Will is Good for our lives. To Believe He is the Way, Life and Truth.

We have to learn what will put the real way and truth to have wind in our sails - Life. It's a fight when the sails do not have a lot of wind in sight. One would want to walk on the water. And doubt and despair threaten.

Jesus rode the sea and fished when the fish were not biting. And He did say He would be with us always.

This is the Jesus boat. It was discovered in fierce drought. The finders were horribly worried to even pay the rent. For 2,000 years the boat of the Sea of Galilee waited. Like Israel itself. God jumps from one thing to the next - and we should have wind in our sails even when it's faith.

Suddenly, the men could see why having no fish, no work, drought - might make something greater. Jesus told a parable to us in all of the Bible - to pray and not give up Hope.

Operation Hope is not to be like an overly tight Halo.

Jesus said He came to fulfill ever dot of the Law. What is the Law? Actually - God's Word is Law.

Hope works when Hope is - Real.

We don't know how to do what is on the blissful Lamb.
And Guilt is like driving your child to play on the Highway. Guilt tells us we don't do Enough to Please God. With that kind of parent - we are going to leave Home.

God wants to save that little boy in the photo because he is pure. Not exactly, God has seen and knows all of our days.  God knows that child as an aged old man. God wants to give the boy the saving truth. God wants to take the broken old body - the old man who would have changed a few things and make that body new and have His Kingdom and Love. Father God says mankind - when He looks deeply into His creation - is Good. Worthy of Saving in Giving HIS Only Son. Jesus.

The Bible says take the Light of Jesus and go forth. It's a little vague - Really. In fact, what is noticeable is Jesus says - sometimes you have to tell your loved ones - "No." You have to remember to put God first - over what you can see, touch, and relate to. This, beloved, of God, is - Interesting. God is worried, He yearns for us to come home like the Prodigal Son - God yearns for us to carry the Light of Christ Forth. To remember people are people and will just let you down because they can't do all the Work of the Lamb photo that well.

God looks at mankind and says "Worthy and Worthy of His Only Son." In relatable terms - that is a lot of in-law marrying your Child adoption. If we are picky about spouses for our children - Father God is AMAZINGLY OPEN.

God sees Amazing Goodness in Examining the Core of People.

God doesn't give a lot of tips on Evangelism. He says carry the Light of Jesus forth. And He gives us the Good Samaritan. Telling us - what falls in your path - Take Care Of. Don't say, "It's a rough week, year, day." God is saying 'helping others' is going to fall into your path. This is God saying help.

And even more amazing is God having to tell us - don't love your family as first priority. They might steer you like a submarine. Remember Who walks on the waters of doubt to provide Eternal Love.

Why does God provide the warning - like 11 Disciples. Because He is in Charge. He is God. He does not tell us we are Third. He does not say Love the Goats so much that you become a Goat.

God does not provide the Triumphant Palm Sunday for Peter or for Paul. In fact, God shows us clearly Peter and Paul have a few, narrow gate, people who remain. God is telling us 11 Disciples are not going to all desert for all of life - do not despair in mankind. And do not expect to be God.

Hope we have to see the GOOD!!! The Sheep and the Goats will continue to parade through Life for the Ancient of Days to observe. And if we were to take the Words of Jesus, we would say - Love One Another. God will fill in the dots. Give Mercy. God is in the business to Decide and Judge. He knows Better. And always say, "To Love the Lord God with all our mind, heart and soul - is to know the Way, the Truth and the Life."

Billy Graham said he had an analytical son. Always figuring things out. We can relax and Love. Billy Graham didn't find his halo too tight. Billy Graham found the Word of God would tell us this turns out well, God has written the final chapter. We can Trust God to be God. Always.

Abba, Daddy-Heavenly Father,

Your Word is Law.

Fear not little Flock. It is Your Father's Good Pleasure to GIVE the Kingdom.

Dreary old day? Dreary old Pentateuch? Na.

Deuteronomy 16:14
14 Be joyful at your festival — you,
your sons and daughters,
your male and female servants,
and the Levites,
the foreigners (like Moses in Midian or in-laws),
the fatherless
and the widows who live in your towns.

Leviticus 9:24
Fire came out from the presence of the Lord and consumed the burnt offering
and the fat portions on the altar.
And when all the people saw it, they shouted for joy and fell face down.

Father God, We will ALWAYS PRAY WITH HOPE!!!

Father God,

We Believe.

The Lord will bless us and keep us;

the Lord will make his face shine upon us and be gracious to us;

the Lord does turn his face toward us and give us peace.

We will have Grace and peace to us from God our Father
and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

The God of peace is with all who call on Him and put on that halo with sincerity!

The Blessing of Helping renews each Day. Giving the Day Life. Thank You for the Fun.
Jesus is Good.

Amen in Jesus.

About Me

My photo
Email registry at bottom.! “All Scripture is inspired by God” (2 Timothy 3:16). Men “moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God” (2 Peter 1:21). The Holy Spirit carried men along, moving and guiding them as they wrote in their own words what God wanted them to say. The Bible is unique; comprised of 80 separate books, & written over a period of thousands of years by more than 40 writers with one Author, spanning the centuries, different states of peace & war & different situations in life. The Bible answers the question: of who is God, who is man & what can their relationship can be. Although the Bible was written on perishable material and copied by hand for many centuries, its accuracy is not in doubt, proven by Dead Sea Scrolls and papyrus from 2,000 years. The Bible has survived persecution & criticism to be read with great interest in each generation. The Bible gives witness to the greatness of the Creator. A loving Father concerned for all of his creation. With each verse of the bible witnessing to God is love and the multitude & vastness of His attributes. The Bible was written for you. <><
