VESPERS AT THE END OF THE SABBATH: Why Between Two Thieves?!




Once Upon A Time
Long Ago
AND
Far Away
The Savior Of The World
Hung
Between Two Thieves!

At First
They Both Reviled Him!
BUT, THEN
When The One Became Educated
As To Who The Middle Man Was Is
He Cried:

"Lord! When You Shall
In Your Kingdom Come
REMEMBER ME!"

The Crucified Lord
Replied:

"I Say Unto You Today:
'You Shall Be With Me In Paradise!'"

And That Reformed, Regenerated Thief
Was
In That Very Instant
Reconciled
To The Holy God!

He Died 
At Peace
Having Repented Of His Sin!

The God-Man In The Middle
Died Of A Heart
Broken
Borne Down
Covered
In The Sin
Of All Mankind
In All Ages
Past, Present, And
Future!

Interestingly Enough
Everybody Thinks That
Three Men
On Crosses
Was The Extent
Of The Old Story!

It Isn't!



Guilty As Charged:

Left-side Thief 
Jesus Christ, The Righteous - King Of The Jews
Right-side Thief

Both Thieves Were Rare-mouthed Sinners

*********

The Life Of Christ Called To The Thieves:

The Left-side Stiff-necked, Still Reviling Thief
REJECTED THE CALL TO SALVATION
Jesus Christ, The Righteous
The Right-side Convicted-Of-Sin Thief
ACCEPTED THE CALL TO SALVATION

*********

Left-side Thief
Died
IN HIS SIN!
Jesus Christ, The Righteous
Right-side Thief
Died 
JUSTIFIED IN CHRIST!

THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER:

The Physical Arrangement Of Jesus Christ's Position Between The Two Thieves On The Cross Was No Accident! It Is A Clear Pointing To The Close Of Human History As Found In The Words Of Truth:


Matthew 25:31-34 King James Version (KJV)

31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

34 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:



There Are Only 
Two Types Of Humans 
At The Close Of Time:

Humans Standing For God
and
Humans Working Against God

*********

No Human Is Permitted The Middle Ground!
So
Your Position Of "No Decision!"
Is
Your Decision ... AGAINST GOD!

Please Do Not Make THAT Mistake!


Are You A Sheep?
Sheep Gladly Follow 
The Good Shepherd's Way!
Are You A Goat?
Goats Of The Own Volition 
Go On Their Own Sweet Way!
So Choose Your Choice Freely
AND
Get In The Salvation Boat 
For
It Is Not There For Our Amusement
Nor For A Happy Pappy Show!

Jesus Christ Is The Captain
The Captain Of The Good Ship!
He Is Also The True Shepherd
AND 
All On Board The Vessel
Are Safe With And In Him!

Be Not Afraid
For The Tossing Of The Cruel Sea
The Captain - Who Is Your Shepherd
Will Take You To The Peaceful Shore
Battered Or Bruised Or Broken
BUT 
Always Safely!

Sheep!
- Not Goats -
Will Gladly Ride On The Boat
For
Sheep Give Heed To Their Known Master
BUT
The Goats 
Constantly Stubbornly Always Away Swing 
AND
Avidly Eat The Life Boat
Which Is There For Their Own Souls' Saving!


Repentance
Is
The Best Course
For
The Sin-Sick Soul!

*********

Answer The Call

AND

Take Your 
Bedeviled Goat Parts 
To Jesus Christ
To Be 
Remade 
As 
Good Sheep Parts 
TODAY!!
