“Judgment Day Separation” by Rev Samuel Mametsa, Sunday Service, the 21st of October 2012.

Scripture reading:
Matt 25:31-44 “31 “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. 32 All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. 33 And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of 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 took Me in; 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 When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? 39 Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’ 41 “Then He will also say to those on the left hand,’Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting 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 take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’ 44 “Then they also will answer Him, 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?’” Matt 25:31-44, NKJV.

This is the word of God from the master Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is giving us a glimpse of what will happen on Judgment Day. The bible says in verse 31, that when the Son of man come in glory, meaning He won’t come in the physical form; He will come carrying the annointing
from heaven.

That is why the bible says “When the Son of Man comes in His glory,” [Matt 25:31, NKJV] which means further that He will be equipped with glory, He will be equipped with glory anger and He will be equipped with glory fury. This means we won’t talk about grace, we won’t talk about mercy, and we won’t talk about compassion because the glory He will be carrying is for judgment.

The bible says when “…and all the holy angels with Him,…” [Matt 25:31
NKJV]. This means the angels will be equipped with glory for holiness. They can’t go with him without the holiness

The bible says “…then He will sit on the throne of His glory.” Matt 25:31, NKJV. He will be seated, He will be honored. God the Creator in heaven will step down from His throne. Yes, God in heaven will step down. When Jesus is in glory Jesus Christ will be given the chair of the Creator. On that day God the Creator will step down. God the creator, who created everything will vacate his chair and say “My son, you are worthy, judge. You know those who call upon your name. I don’t know them, that is why I respect you. You are worthy. Yes I didn’t make a mistake. When you were dying I said this is my beloved son in whom I am pleased. Now this is your reward. Now sit. You know them. Those who were serving you properly, judge them.”

In verse 32, “32 All the nations will be gathered before Him” Matt 25:32, NKJV. I don’t know who you are today, Venda, Shangaan, Zulu, Xhosa, Muslim etc but the bible says all the nations shall gather before the throne. Jesus Christ was giving a glimpse. All nations, all life, good or bad, rich, fancy, poor etc. The bible says all life shall gather before Jesus Christ after He is given the throne.

In verse 32 , the bible never says the nations will be begged. The bible says all nations will be gathered, I don’t know by whom, they shall be forced. They shall know that they must come and stand before the throne to receive judgment.

There is this song which says “The home that we so desire, we can see it from far”.

I ask myself “Do the people understand this song when they sing the song, do they understand the home, or the house that they are talking about?” The song says “We can see this home, the hills also” My worry is that people sing it but they can’t see the home yet.

There is another song that people sing which pains me a lot “We lay our lives before you. Oh how much we love You” Do you understand this song? This song was sung by Jesus Christ, when He was dying, He said “I lay my life before You God.” If you sing that song and you don’t live what the song says, then you are lying. Because the life you are living outside of church is different It is not the life which had been laid down. You are preaching something you can’t live.

If you really meant that song, if you were living that song, He will prove it to us on His throne. You can sign a song, and say “The home that we so desire, we can see it from far” and really sing it and see the home spiritually and end up not making it there. Don’t sing, speak or preach what you can’t do. This song will reprimand you.

The song says “The happiness where we will meet;” it is not all who will experience it. The song says those who will be elected will experience the happiness. The song says on Judgment Day when the Master is seating in front of us wiping off the sweat from His face, so that He can see His mark on the people properly. The bible says “all nations”, all churches will be gathered, all witches and wizards will be gathered, all false prophets, all crippled people, and everybody will be gathered. And all those people will be singing, “Happiness there in front, we will meet there”. They will be singing. This song doesn’t care if you are a Christian or not, you can sing it. What matter is not that you sing the song but that moment when you stand before the throne and Jesus judges.

You can sing it consoling yourself “We will meet there!” Who told you? According to the word of God the throne, is not in that house (home). The throne where Jesus is seated at is not that house, because it would mean that Jesus will give happiness to those who are not supposed to enter the home. You may refuse to go out after tasting this happiness. So He won’t make this mistake. The throne is before the home. There will be a place, where you will stand, you can even sing the song but the matter is that after judgment, can you still sing this song? That is my question. Will we still have the energy to sing this song?

“32 All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another,” Matt 25:32, NKJV. This is where problem will start. The throne will be taking authority, separating them from one another. Your friend will go this way, your cousin that way, your uncle that side. He will separate them. Do you know separation? You know the separation of people who were married. In such a case, if you involve the pastor they may be united again. The separation the bible is talking about cannot be reversed. It is the separation on the throne.

“…as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats.” Matt 25:32, NKJV. A shepherd knows how to separate donkeys, cows and goats. The bible says Jesus seated on the throne will separate the people. The One who has been given power to separate eternally.

“33 And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.” Matt 25:33, NKJV. Please understand this wisdom. Why are the sheep taken to the left whilst the goats are on the right? The bible says before Jesus Christ is given power on the throne He is seated on the right hand, meaning the sheep represent Jesus Christ whilst the goats represent satan.

The bible says He will separate the goat from the sheep. He can’t take the sheep to the left whilst He is seating on the right.

“34 Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:” Matt 25:34, NKJV. It means those on the right are the ones who will start singing “Happiness we will meet there.” When people are told to go to the right, they will start to dance because they will seat on the right of the Father. When you are told to go the left, you will lose the tune of the song. Even if you wanted to sing the song, that tune will die from you for good. The bible says Jesus will separate us like sheep and goat.

When you live in this world make sure your life is like that of the sheep.

Let’s talk about the goats. Do you want to be a sheep or goat? Some of the goats will be saying “But I was going to Pastor Mametsa’s church?” Going to a particular church doesn’t help if you are not living the right life. The bible says there will be a lot of complaints. They will raise their hands trying to catch the attention of Jesus saying “Sorry Master Jesus, you have made a mistake. I am supposed to be on the other side.” He will check His books. Because He has glory, He won’t make any mistakes. If you hear you are supposed to go to the left, don’t complain, just fall down and roll towards that side.

The bible says people will complain, some will plead for their lives.

The bible says the glory given, has no compassion, has no mercy. Even if you plead, there will be no mercy. Your time of mercy, pleading is now, whilst you are still alive on earth.

We are talking about the time of Judgment. The time to say sorry is now. The bible says that at that time He would not have been given the spirit of mercy. Those who will be raising their hands will ask “Lord, why do you take us to the left?” The bible says Jesus will say “35 for I was hungry and you gave Me food;” Matt 25:35, NKJV. He will be talking to the goats. Jesus Christ is hungry, it’s up to you if you give Him food or not. But He will get you. People are so greedy. You can buy food for them but they will cook it and tell you there is no food. Jesus Christ gives you food but you don’t give it back to Him, the owner.

“I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; 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?” Matt 25:35-37, NKJV.

Let me explain what I mean by this. You are not going to see Jesus Christ with your naked eyes. You can’t greet Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ will prove what God says. God says “I created you in my own image.” This means that every person that you meet is Jesus Christ. That poor person staying next to you is Jesus Christ, the one who sleeps without eating food. That poverty stricken family, who puts on the same shoe throughout the whole year and you see it with your naked eyes. That child that sleeps without blankets is Jesus Christ. That child that is in hospital, that you don’t visit because they are poor. The problem is that with some people when God shows them something they must do, they first go to somebody else. Why go to somebody else, because God has shown you, He is saying to you “Do something!”

You are staying next to a child who is struggling and you say “This child will fend for herself.” This child is Jesus, the one that He says I showed you this person and you did nothing. You will be accountable for this when Jesus Christ takes on the throne. “That child next to you, who I heard, died of hunger? Where were you?”

Let me give you an example: When a retarded person comes to your house, with saliva dripping from the house and says “Please can I have some water.” What comes to your mind? “Who will use this cup after this person he drinks from it?” You may now want to get a cup specially for this person. The bible says the eyes of God are watching. You want to give the water but the problem is the cup and God is looking at you. When this mentally retarded person is coming, there is this other handsome man who also comes and says “Please give me some water to drink” and you go and take that sealed cup that is waiting for Christmas. You feel that Christmas is delaying; “This one is not worthy to drink from this cup”. You start by giving the rich man and the mentally retarded man is watching you. You even kneel down for the rich man, and the mentally retarded men comes near “I am next” and he is surprised as he will be getting water in a steel cup and told “Here, drink fast!”. Jesus Christ says I am watching, a record is being captured of this event.

So, when you have raised your complaint with Jesus Christ on the throne, He won’t respond. He will just replay the record. He knows that the goats, who belong to satan are very argumentative. He will just say “Sunday, such and such a date, play the record” and all the nations will see your life of sinfulness, of a goat.

The bible says some are suffering, with no clothes but you have lot of clothes, some don’t fit you anymore but there is somebody who has one dress, she must wash that dress and wait for it to dry and then put it back on. The bible says Jesus will replay your life back to you and say “Were you serving Me?”

Sometimes God will show you something, only you, expecting you to act. Don’t shift the blame. Do it, He can’t show you and not give you the grace to fulfill it.

Even when you have given that water in that broken cup, you haven’t given Him anything because the rich man drank from a nicer glass. There are people who don’t share their food especially when they have cooked nice food.

Ask yourself Am I a goat or sheep?

“40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’” Matt 25:37, NKJV.
I don’t know what you are doing to another person but you must know that you are doing it to Jesus. Maybe you are doing something to somebody, just close your eyes and do. “…the least…” Matt 25:40, NKJV “…the least…” are those dis-advantaged people.

When people arrange functions and parties they judge the people that they will invite. They invite people who will bring presents, they even rate the families. I want you to know that Jesus Christ is watching. Don’t undermine people because of their financial position. Jesus Christ is saying don’t undermine people. Why is it that God doesn’t undermine people? It doesn’t rain on rich people only. The sun doesn’t shine on rich people only. One day those people will be restored by God and be much better than you.

I heard a story about a rich man who used to undermine other people. He used to refuse to give lifts to poor people saying they will infest me with their poverty. Then God judged Him from above and he became so poor and ended up a pedestrian. One day it was raining so hard and he was walking on foot and this one man felt pity for him and stopped to give him a lift. Out of embarrassment, the ex-rich man refused to situation in front inside the car but opted to sit at the back, even when it was still raining. It was because he could remember his own words about other people.

The bible says God, uses people; they become the earthly angels. God uses human beings as earthly angels. God can use people to be earthly angels. That is why Jesus says “Take care of everybody because you will chase angels from your home.”

It once happened to me whilst I was still saying in Diepkloof. I was with Pastor Mukwevho. It happened when I was accompanying him back to Meadowlands between Diepkloof and Orland. I saw two old ladies, around 80 years old. It was after midnight. They could not see clearly. They used the sticks to stop me for a lift. I said to myself “These old ladies, at this time.” I wanted to pass thinking maybe criminals are using them as bait. I ended up hitting dead brakes. Pastor Mukwevho asked “What are you doing so late at night?” “Another car left us here, we are going to this hospital”. I knew the hospital they were talking about and I said “Let’s go with them.” We turned to accommodate them. The good thing was that the hospital is located next to the main road. I drove there and parked next to the hospital gate, there was bright light and security. Pastor Mukwevho opened the door and those two old ladies said “Thanks!” whilst going. I drove a little bit, but the car stuck a very short distance from them. We looked back but those two ladies had disappeared. We had a serious problem “Who had we given a lift to?” We started to pray, God said “Don’t worry, you were carrying angels, I was testing you, they are gone.” This is not a story, it happened to me, it may have happened to you many why times. God said to me. If you had not lifted them, you would have known me.

God may place somebody in your way in order to test you but because you expect only the good and best He will bring the least of the people to test you. You need discernment. Do you think God can just bring useless things in this world? He wants to check when you say “Jesus!”, Jesus do you really mean it.

Verse 40: “40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’” Matt 25:40, NKJV.

How many people have gone to prison just to visit prisoners? Or maybe go there to pray with them? Be careful you don’t become a goat! If you have never been in prison, how do you know Jesus is not there?

Your next door child is Jesus Christ.

“46 And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”” Matt 25:46, NKJV.

The goats will suffer forever. The sheep will have everlasting joy. Your challenge is: is your life that of a sheep or goat? Answer the question yourself. Do a self-introspection of your life, is my life that of a goat or sheep? You need to ask God, in the spirit, closing your eyes.
Sometimes we are given power by God to operate in a certain level but because you are still operating as a goat you can’t operate. As this thing is preventing you to start serving God, Do a self-introspection.

Ask God pleading: I don’t want to argue with you. I heard that on your throne there are no argument, now, I ask you, show me my life, if my life makes you happy, it will make me happy. But if my life doesn’t make you happy, help me to see the things that I am doing wrong so I can change. It is only the Holy Spirit; who can show me my life. Yes, I see everything is well, but I don’t want to find myself being separated as a goat.
