The sheep will enter the Kingdom of Heaven
John 10:27,28,29 - My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
People do not have a clear understanding of salvation and therefore many perish. People believe that just by believing in Jesus Christ one is saved.
Yes, we are saved when we believe in Jesus Christ, but what we are saved from is the judgment of the law of sin and death. When we believe in Jesus Christ we come under the law of grace and thus we are saved from the law of sin and death.
But just by believing in Jesus Christ we are not saved from the Judgment of Jesus Christ. It is only when we abide by the Word of His Father will we be saved from His Judgment.
The scriptures clearly state that He will Judge His flock on the Judgment Day, all the goats will be separated from the sheep. The sheep will enter with Him into the Kingdom of Heaven and the goats into eternal damnation. Just for one's information this punishment is even worst than the one which a non-believer receives.
Thus ask yourself are you going to stand with the sheep or with the goats? If you want to be with the sheep abide with the Word. It may seem hard but the Helper (Holy Spirit) will help you abide, surrender unto Him.
It is your decision today which will decide your destiny. The Father already knows the result, but your efforts today will assure you your success.
Walk according to the Word of God not according to the word of man and you will be surely SAVED.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Father God, we thank You for your Word, Lord. We also thank You Lord for your Son Jesus Christ our redeemer and Brother. By His sacrifice we are saved from the law of sin and death and by His Spirit we are saved from His Judgment. O Holy Spirit, we know that as long as we are in Christ and in His Word, You are in us. Help us Holy Spirit to abide in the Word, and even if we fall have mercy on us and help us rebound with all your power and grace...
We ask this in Jesus' Name, Amen.

28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
31 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.
32 There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true.
46 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.
47 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
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:
35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40 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 of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
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:
42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43 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.
44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
45 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.
46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
8 Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:
9 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.
10 For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.
11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.
13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
