He will put the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on his left. This is taken from Matthew 25:33.
Today, we have a clear understanding of the illustration of the sheep and the goats. Regarding the identity of those mentioned, Jesus is “the Son of man,” the King. Those referred to as “my brothers” are spirit-anointed man and women, who will rule with Christ from heaven. Matthew 25:31 tells us: “”When the Son of man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit down on his glorious throne.” Matthew 25:40 tells us: “In reply the King will say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.'” Romans 8:16, 17 tells us: “The spirit itself bears witness with our spirit that we are God’s children. If, then, we are children, we are also heirs-heirs indeed of God, but joint heirs with Christ-provided we suffer together so that we may also be glorified together.”
“The sheep” and “the goats” represent individuals from all nations. These ones are not anointed by holy spirit. What about the timing of the judgement? This judgement will occur toward the end of the great tribulation just ahead. And what of the reason why people will be judged as either sheep or goats? The outcome hinges on how they have treated the remaining ones of Christ’s spirit-anointed brothers on earth. With the end of this system so close at hand, how grateful we are that Jehovah has progressively shed light on this illustration and on the related illustrations recorded in Matthew chapters 24 and 25!
