The Sheep & the Goats

Matthew 25:31-46

This parabolic-sounding passage is actually a prediction of future

events that will take place when Jesus returns to rule and reign on

this earth. This passage does not teach a ‘general judgment’ at the

end of time. This judgment takes place on earth immediately after

the Battle of Armageddon before the millennial kingdom is

established on earth (Matt. 25:31), and the saved are told to

“inherit the kingdom” (Matt. 25:34). See also Revelation 19:19-20:4.
