Overcomer in Christ, as you read this article, please keep in mind that God’s nature is changeless, which means that it is “the same yesterday, and to-day, and for ever” Heb. 13:8: and, this further solidifies that He made creatures for His enjoyment and pleasure Rev. 4:11. Therefore, it is “strange” for Him to “give them up” to destruction Isa. 28:21, Hosea 11:8-9. Although the Bible does use words like “Smote”, “Jealous” and “Destroy”, His children are encouraged to focus on His changeless “Principles” as a sure Guide, found in the Ten Commandments, His “Character Transcript”, where it highlights that He does not kill or murder - Exo. 20. Now that the premise for this article has been set forth, let us begin to learn more about Christ, the “Lamb of God”, whose life record was without any evidence of “retaliation” (i.e. when Peter cut off Malchus’ ear, Christ rejoined it, without hesitation – John 18:10). Sadly, sin (caused from satanic principles) has marred God’s perfect creations 2Thess. 2:7, James 1:15. Within Matthew 25:31-34 one can glean symbolism relating to earth’s righteous and iniquitous inhabitants. The aforementioned scripture implies that the Shepherd is Christ as; it is only the Holy Spirit that can separate the sheep from the goats. More specifically, the sheep are the children of God and the goats are the children of the Adversary. What are striking differences between sheep and goats? For starters, sheep are gentile, quiet, affectionate, non-aggressive, docile and easily managed. When taken to the slaughter-house, lambs are not retaliatory or aggressive. For the sake of clarity, it is understood that a “lamb” is synonymous with “sheep”, its plural Isa. 53:7, Jer. 11:19. Christ as the Lamb of God was completely passive, never manifesting aggressiveness. He, even at the point of His crucifixion, completely submitted to His false-accusers. “Passive submission” involves the act of complete--total obedience without aggression or a “fight”.
