God’s Flock…

Seeing the World Through God’s Eyes…Judgment Upon Mankind…
 
God uses the goat to symbolize evil in numerous instances in the Bible. In Zechariah 10:3 (KJV) He says He will punish the goats. In Matthew 25:31-46 Christ’s Parable of the Sheep and the Goats tells of His return and of judging the nations. In verse 33 He says, “And He [Christ] will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.” The sheep are then given eternal life, but the goats are cast into the Lake of Fire. It should be abundantly clear from this section of Scripture that we want the attributes of sheep and not those of goats! (Pay attention)
 
Isaiah 14:9-14
 
“Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet at thy coming: it started up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations. All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou become like unto us? They pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee. How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou “cut down to the ground” (Symbolic of the current events…), which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most high…”
 
Zechariah 10:3
 
“Mine anger was kindled against the shepherds, and I punished the goats: for the Lord of hosts hath visited his flock (sheep) the house of Judah, and hath made them as his goodly horse in battle…”
 
Leviticus 17:7
 
And they shall no more offer their sacrifices unto devils, after whom they have gone a whoring. This shall be STATUTE for ever unto them throughout their generations…”
 
Micah 1:16
 
Make thee bald, and poll thee for thy delicate children; enlarge thy baldness as the “eagle”; for they are gone into captivity from thee…”
 
Amos 8:10
 
“And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning of an “only son” (only begotten son…), and the end thereof as a bitter day…”
 
This verse describes the mourning heart of Jesus for His Father to be exalted…baldness and shaving can be understood as an act of dedication to serving God…”regrowth” is always in the mind of God…just as “rebirth” (like a child’s first burst of hair…) is the key to understanding the Kingdom of God…as soft and delicate as a lamb…symbolism is key…
