We just finished Feast of Weeks again, Pentecost last week. The spring feasts and holy days are over again.

 

Today's topic:

 

Serving God in pretence

 

A hypocrite acts in pretence

 

The last few weeks shows me again that visitors that come to our congregation have little knowledge of Scripture.

They give opinions on subjects in Scripture that they have not studied out.

This shows me their enthusiasm and their zeal to know the truth is very low. I always wonder if people really believe in the true living God of Israel, and that they have an everlasting soul.

If all you do is come to a Sabbath service, and you never read Scripture, pray or fast during the week, you are just kidding yourself. You might think you know the Scriptures, but the word of God is not dwelling in you richly.

This shows up in your personality, the way you carry yourself, the way you talk to people and the way you handle situations.You may find yourself not making a stand for holiness by offering an apology, making an excuse or unknowingly condone situations that are not Godly.

To put it simply, you just canít attend a Sabbath service once a week and think you serving God.

This is what has led me to this study this week, because I see that without you knowing it, you may be turning yourself into a hypocrite, doing things in pretence.

 

Letís begin our study

Scripture says:

2Tim.2 [15] Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Col.3 [16] Let the word of Messiah dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

1Thes.5 [21] Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.

Eph.5 [10] Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.

Heb.3[13] But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

Pertaining to the few verses above, can you really say that youíre living your life by them?

 

Letís look up a few words:

 

Pretence

make-believe or feigning

a false display; affectation

a false claim or allegation; pretext

the act of pretending, a claim, esp a false one, to a right, title, or distinction

 

πρόφασις - prophasis - prof'-as-is - an outward showing, that is, pretext: - cloke, colour, pretence, show, a pretext (alleged reason, pretended cause), a show, under colour as though they would do something, in pretence, ostensibly

--------------------------

Hypocrite

חנף chânêph - khaw-nafe' - soiled (that is, with sin), impious: - hypocrite (-ical).

חנף chânêph - khaw-nafe' - A primitive root; to soil, especially in a moral sense: - corrupt, defile, greatly, pollute, profane.

A person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually possess, especially a person whose actions belie stated beliefs.

 

A person who feigns some desirable or publicly approved attitude, especially one whose private life, opinions, or statements belie his or her public statements

-----------------------------------

 

I see people that have belied Yehovah all the time, they say God is so loving you can do anything you want, and there is no judgment.

Jer.5[12] They have belied Yehovah, and said, It is not he; neither shall evil come upon us; neither shall we see sword nor famine: WRONG

[13] And the prophets shall become wind, and the word is not in them: thus shall it be done unto them.

Belie = to misrepresent

 

----------------------------

The second part of this verse below I see all the time. The first part, being teaches of the Torah, law has been totally erased.

 

1Tim.1[7] Desiring to be teachers of the law; (they donít desire that any more)(they still today) understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.

--------------------

Letís read what God thinks about hypocrites

 

Job.8 [3] Doth God pervert judgment? or doth the Almighty pervert justice?
[4] If thy children have sinned against him, and he have cast them away for their transgression;
[5] If thou wouldest seek unto God betimes, and make thy supplication to the Almighty;
[6] If thou wert pure and upright; surely now he would awake for thee, and make the habitation of thy righteousness prosperous.
[7] Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase.
[8] For inquire, I pray thee, of the former age, and prepare thyself to the search of their fathers:
[9] (For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because our days upon earth are a shadow:)
[10] Shall not they teach thee, and tell thee, and utter words out of their heart?
[11] Can the rush grow up without mire? can the flag grow without water?
[12] Whilst it is yet in his greenness, and not cut down, it withereth before any other herb.
[13] So are the paths of all that forget God; and the hypocrite's hope shall perish:
[14] Whose hope shall be cut off, and whose trust shall be a spider's web.

 

Job.13[16] He also shall be my salvation: for an hypocrite shall not come before him.

 

Job.15[34] For the congregation of hypocrites shall be desolate, and fire shall consume the tabernacles of bribery.

 

Job.20 [4] Knowest thou not this of old, since man was placed upon earth,
[5] That the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment?

[6] Though his excellency mount up to the heavens, and his head reach unto the clouds;
[7] Yet he shall perish for ever like his own dung: they which have seen him shall say, Where is he?
[8] He shall fly away as a dream, and shall not be found: yea, he shall be chased away as a vision of the night.
[9] The eye also which saw him shall see him no more; neither shall his place any more behold him.
[10] His children shall seek to please the poor, and his hands shall restore their goods.
[11] His bones are full of the sin of his youth, which shall lie down with him in the dust.
[12] Though wickedness be sweet in his mouth, though he hide it under his tongue;
[13] Though he spare it, and forsake it not; but keep it still within his mouth:
[14] Yet his meat in his bowels is turned, it is the gall of asps within him.
[15] He hath swallowed down riches, and he shall vomit them up again: God shall cast them out of his belly.
[16] He shall suck the poison of asps: the viper's tongue shall slay him.

 

Job.27[8] For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained, when God taketh away his soul?

 

Job.36 [5] Behold, God is mighty, and despiseth not any: he is mighty in strength and wisdom.
[6] He preserveth not the life of the wicked: but giveth right to the poor.
[7] He withdraweth not his eyes from the righteous: but with kings are they on the throne; yea, he doth establish them for ever, and they are exalted.
[8] And if they be bound in fetters, and be holden in cords of affliction;
[9] Then he sheweth them their work, and their transgressions that they have exceeded.
[10] He openeth also their ear to discipline, and commandeth that they return from iniquity.
[11] If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.

[12] But if they obey not, they shall perish by the sword, and they shall die without knowledge.

[13] But the hypocrites in heart heap up wrath: they cry not when he bindeth them.
[14] They die in youth, and their life is among the unclean.

 

Prov.11[9] An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered.

 

Isa.33[14] The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?

------------------

Yeshua was confronted with hypocrites all the time. Letís read how he handled them. Remember, all these people thought they were serving God, however they belie the Lord.

When you set yourself up as a teacher, you become a Pharisee and the Sadducees.

 

Letís read:

Matt.6

[1] Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.

[2] Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

[3] But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:
[4] That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.


[5] And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.


[6] But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.


[7]
But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.


[8] Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.


[9] After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
[10] Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
[11] Give us this day our daily bread.
[12] And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
[13] And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.


[14] For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
[15] But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

[16] Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

[17] But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face;
[18] That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.

[19] Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
[20] But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
[21] For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.


[22] The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
[23] But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

[24] No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

[25] Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
[26] Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
[27] Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
[28] And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
[29] And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
[30] Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
[31] Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
[32] (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
[33] But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
[34] Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

 

Matt.7

[1] Judge not, that ye be not judged.
[2] For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

Remember, we do not use our own judgment. We judged all things by the word of God.

 

[3] And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
[4] Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
[5] Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

Matt.15

[1] Then came to Yeshua scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying,
[2] Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.

[3] But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?

[4] For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.
[5] But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me;
[6] And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.
[7] Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,
[8] This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
[9] But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

 

Matt.16

[1] The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven.

[2] He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.
[3] And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?
[4] A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.

Matt.23

[1] Then spake Yeshua to the multitude, and to his disciples,
[2] Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat:
[3] All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.
[4] For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.
[5] But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments,
[6] And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues,
[7] And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.


[8] But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Messiah; and all ye are brethren.
[9] And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.
[10] Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Messiah.


[11] But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.

[12] And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.
[13] But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.
[14] Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.
[15] Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.
[16] Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor!
[17] Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold?
[18] And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty.
[19] Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift?
[20] Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon.
[21] And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein.
[22] And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon.
[23] Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
[24] Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.

[25] Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.
[26] Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.

[27] Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.
[28] Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.

[29] Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,
[30] And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.
[31] Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.
[32] Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.
[33] Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

[34] Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:
[35] That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.
[36] Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.
[37] O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!
[38] Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
[39] For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

 

Matt.24

[36] But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
[37] But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
[38] For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
[39] And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
[40] Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
[41] Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
[42] Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
[43] But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
[44] Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
[45] Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
[46] Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
[47] Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
[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,


[51] And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

 

------------------

Feign - ὑποκρίνομαι Ė hupokrinomai - hoop-ok-rin'-om-ahee

to decide (speak or act) under a false part, that is, (figuratively) dissemble (pretend)

Pss.17 [1] Hear the right, O LORD, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goeth not out of feigned lips.

2Pet.2

[1] But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

[2] And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
[3] And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

[4] For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
[5] And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
[6] And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
[7] And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:
[8] (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)
[9] The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the Day of Judgment to be punished:

-------------------------------

Donít be false, a pretender

Remember, God says we are His witnesses

Isa.43[10] Ye are my witnesses, saith Yehovah, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. [11] I, even I, am Yehovah; and beside me there is no saviour.
[
12] I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith Yehovah, that I am God.[13] Yea, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it?

------------

Pss.119[104] Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.

[128] Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way.

Prov.6[19] A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

Prov.11[1] A false balance is abomination to Yehovah: but a just weight is his delight.

Prov.12[17] He that speaketh truth sheweth forth righteousness: but a false witness deceit.

Prov.14[5] A faithful witness will not lie: but a false witness will utter lies.

Prov.17[4] A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue.

Prov.19[5] A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall not escape.

[9] A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish.

Prov.20[23] Divers weights are an abomination unto Yehovah; and a false balance is not good.

Prov.21[28] A false witness shall perish: but the man that heareth speaketh constantly.

Prov.25[14] Whoso boasteth himself of a false gift is like clouds and wind without rain.

[18] A man that beareth false witness against his neighbour is a maul, and a sword, and a sharp arrow.

Zech.8[17] And let none of you imagine evil in your hearts against his neighbour; and love no false oath: for all these are things that I hate, saith Yehovah.

I am Yehovah, I change not

2Cor.13 [5] Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves.

Know ye not your own selves, how that Yeshua the Messiah is in you, except ye be reprobates?

Mal.2 [17]

Ye have wearied Yehovah with your words.

Yet ye say, Wherein have we wearied him

When ye say, Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of Yehovah, and he delighteth in them; or,

Where is the God of judgment?

 

He is right below

Matt.25

[1] Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
[2] And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
[3] They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
[4] But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
[5] While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
[6] And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
[7] Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
[8] And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
[9] But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
[10] And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
[11] Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
[12] But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

 

[13] Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.


[14] For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.
[15] And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.
[16] Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents.
[17] And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two.
[18] But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord's money.
[19] After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.
[20] And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.

[21] His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
[22] He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them.
[23] His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
[24] Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed:
[25] And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.
[26] His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:
[27] Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.
[28] Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.

[29] For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.
[30] And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.


[31] When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
[32] 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:

[33] And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

[34] 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:
[35] For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
[36] Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
[37] Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
[38] When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
[39] Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
[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.


[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:
[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.
[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.

 

Prov.28 [5] Evil men understand not judgment: but they that seek Yehovah understand all things.

 

Remember, a gospel without judgment is a lie.
