(Luke 17:10) So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable [Gk: useless, unmeritorious] servants: we have done that which was our duty [Gk: obligation] to do.
1. merit = Dict: 1. claim to commendation; excellence; worth. 2. something that entitles to reward or commendation; a commendable quality, act, etc.
2. obligation = Dict: 1. a binding requirement as to action; duty. 2. the binding power or force of a law, promise, duty, agreement, etc. 3. the act of binding oneself by a promise, contract.
(Mat 25:30) And cast ye the unprofitable [Gk: useless, unmeritorious] servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
1. Commentary: Why? The servant was presumably a born-again child of God who did all that he was asked to do, but nothing that he was not asked to do. There was due performance of duty as per the “agreement-contract,” but no sacrifice of self over and above the “agreement-contract” requirements; hence, no agapao love. Phileo love is doing something in equitable exchange for gaining something. Agapao love is a sacrifice of something above and beyond the call of duty “agreement-contract.” Father God’s love is agapao, i.e., doing something for the betterment of another while neither asking nor expecting a return or gain. Agapao love is a complete (a burnt offering) loss to self, a sacrifice of self without desire or expectation of any return.
2. (Rom 12:1) I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
HIS TRUE SERVANTS ARE THE THRONE OF THE RIGHTEOUS JUDGE
(Mat 25:31) When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon [Gk: above] the throne of his [indicating personal ownership] glory [as typified by the ark of the covenant, i.e., we are His throne]:
(Mat 25:32,33) And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his [indicating personal ownership] sheep from the [rather than “his”: an impersonal identification] goats: And he shall set the sheep on his [indicating personal ownership] right hand, but the [an impersonal identification] goats on the [an impersonal identification] left [no “hand” is mentioned, reinforcing and witnessing impersonality; these are definitely not His nor of Him].
THE RIGHTEOUS SHEEP (WHEAT)
(Mat 25:34-36) 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 [“he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world” Eph 1:4]: For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
1. righteous = Heb: just, lawful /// to be (make) right (in a moral sense): - cleanse, clear self, (be, do) just (-ice, -ify, -ify self), (be, turn to) righteous (-ness).
2. righteous = Gk: equitable (in character or act); by implication innocent, holy: - just /// right (as self evident), justice (the principle, a decision, or its execution).
3. unrighteous = Heb: to distort (morally): - deal unjustly. [night = Heb: a twist away of the light].
4. unrighteous = Gk: unjust; by extension wicked; by implication treacherous; specifically heathen.
(Mat 25:37-40) Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 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 [Gk: the least (in size, amount, dignity, etc.)] of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me [How? Because He lives within each of us].
THE UNRIGHTEOUS GOATS (TARES) (FALLEN ANGELS?)
(Mat 25:41-46) 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: For I was an hungered, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 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. Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 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. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
1. (Mat 25:41) 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:
a. Commentary: Exactly who does the Bible say are the devil’s “angels” that are destined to be cast into everlasting fire? The answer is “the beast and the false prophet” (Rev 20:10), “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life.” (Rev 20:15). Who might that “whosoever” be? Those “whosoever” are certainly unsaved human-beings (biblically portrayed as goats, and tares) that the Bible clearly identifies as “his angels” (Mat 25:41). Perhaps fallen angels? Perhaps. What then does that make us?
b. Commentary: We may also note that goats, although they look like sheep, never get “transformed” and actually become sheep. Tares are even more interesting. Although they also look like wheat, they never get “transformed” and actually become wheat. And the Bible says “the tares are the children of the wicked one;” (Mat 13:38), i.e., his angels. The devil, then and now, sows his children (his thoughts) “after his kind” in the field of the world.
2. (Rev 20:10) And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
3. (Rev 20:14,15) And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life [“before the foundation of the world” Eph 1:4] was cast into the lake of fire.
a. (Rev 3:5) He that overcometh [the sin in himself], the same shall be clothed in white raiment [indicating innocence, sinlessness]; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
b. (Rev 22:19) And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
