The Law of Separation...

“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: And He shall set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on His right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world…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…And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal…” Matthew 25:32-34

THE SHEEP:
Are dependant upon one shepherd to lead them to water and pastures
The shepherd protects them from wild beasts, andanoints their faces with oil when bitten by snakes
They tend to wander off, fall into crevices and getcaught in thorn brushes
The shepherd must leave the flock in search forthe stray
The sheep can go for long periods without water
They are social animals that gather their flocks
The sheep known to be helpless, gentle creatures
Models of submission
Demonstrated purity and trusted obedience to its shepherd
The shepherd knows all that are of his flock by name
The sheep know the voice of his shepherd
Those who enter into the Kingdom of God
THE GOATS:
Known to be independent, willful, and curious creatures
Symbolized as:
Leaders of the flock are ‘chief ones of the earth’
Irresponsible leaders
The rebellious and disobedient
The unbelieving and doubters
The unrighteous
Leaders in mighty wickedness, headstrong, wantonness, offensive lust and foremost in sin
They who eagerly and willingly follow after theirleaders and persist in rebellion of truth
Those doomed for eternal punishment
Those who will not enter into the Kingdom of God
