   goats li8ke to lead...sheep are followers..thus the need for the good shepherd.  goats even prefer thorns and briars to munch on and

  do quite well...not so sheep.  goat hair..due to it's manner of composition  is not so easily trapped and bound in thornbushes and briars...sheep

   can become trapped easily and bound in such conditionds....and die.

    scapegoat and atonement day...High preist takes and transfe3rs all Isreal's sins onto selected scapegoat..and sends it away to perish in the wilderness

  thus signifying the generation of the wicked one that does not enterinto the Holy city/promised land etc

  Goats by their very nature  are different  on many scales  compared to sheep 
 goats are smarter to their  surroundings and pillage able to jump and climb  going off alone   many times  and can surive , where as sheep are not as smart and wander more into danger  and not as agile  and more  prone to being prey when alone  and not with a flock  :dunno2:

yeah...the Word of God says that the children of the light are not as wise as the kingdom of darkness...spoken in the parable of the unjust steward

    thus we are cautioned to be wise as serpents" yet innocent as doves.....

What people do not understand.. they think UR is a belief that folks will "inherit eternal life" if they do not "believe" in  the Lord Jesus. This, is not the point at all, of course! But! Everyone completely misses the fact that there will be two resurrections. There's the first one of all believers, then 1000 or so years later there is the second which is of all those who have never believed or perhaps even ever heard. The Bible itself says "how will they believe if they do not hear?"
 - Now my logic rests upon the Hebrew spring and fall holy days, for you see if the spring ones prophesied and fulfilled the first advent of Jesus, then surely, the fall holy days prophecy and will be fulfilled by the long 2nd advent of Jesus. Notice the numbers. The ancient and original fall holy days are #1-Trumpets, then 1O days later #2-Day of Atonement, then 5 days later, #3-Tabernacles. Now the peaks of the long 2nd advent are - #1-trumpet blown, angels sent forth to gather his elect from the four directions of the earth (& 1st resurrection of dead believers) then 1OOO years later, #2-Day of Judgement, if "1O days" in this prophecy equates to the 1OOO year millenium, then the "5 days" between Judgment day and Tabernacles-Revelation 21:3(KJ "God will Tabernacle with man") is 5OO years, making judgment day a long day of the review of all things, all human history, etc, lasting roughly 5OO years. Then note, the notorious words "those not believing will go to the 2nd death" is not said until all who have ever lived have experienced, #1, being resurrected out of their grave or the sea, etc.. and #2, have lived through, experienced and witnessed the long day of judgment. Who, after all that, isn't going to believe? This makes (surprise!) the day of judgment to actually be a GReat Day of Atonement!!
 - Besides, God can only be perfect, and perfection makes no mistakes! He, himself indirectly created all evil when he endowed thinking ability to angel and man, but hey, would we prefer to be a robot?? And since He did open the Pandora's box of choice, a by product of being able to think, he built the rescue into everything from the very beginning.. "from the foundation of the world". :Peace2:

Admittedly I have only glossed over the posts Crossover M, when I read Revelation 21, the first few verses are about the new heavens and new earth, this points to the final fulfillment there is no death anymore, not even second death, God has wiped the tears from everyones eyes, the heavens and the earth and its subjects are completely renewed, the end of verse 4, the former things have passed away.

I believe verse 6, Is Jesus speaking in the present, to the reader the one wanting to discern, he is giving instruction to remind us that all will have to be clean, I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts, by comparison those who carry on acting wickedly will learn the hard way, like us now if we continue to sin, his fire will keep on purging us and we will have to come back to his word his living water and allow his spirit to clean us. The subject changes again to the glory of the City of God  and it will not be seen by the wicked. Chapter 22, Shows the blessing that comes from that city and the throne of God and the lamb, from verse 7 onward Jesus, was carrying on his admonition for all to seek life and to not be outside the City Of God.
