This is the prelude to the famous illustration of the separation of the sheep and the goats. Before jumping into the judgment scene I thought that it would be helpful to make a few observations about the setting.
- The words glory and glorious sets the scene. When I read those words I remember that I have no context and no words to understand this scene.
- When I read the word "all" I am overwhelmed. All the angels will be there. All peoples of all times will be there. I cannot get my head around that number.
- Mankind will be separated. It leaves me speechless. I want this to be a time when mankind is reunited not a time when they are divided.
Lord, you are my Shepherd. Help me to follow you like a lamb.
