Matthew 25: The Least of These
God will reward every person who aids Israel during the tribulation.
By Craig C. White
Have you ever wondered who were “the least of these” spoken of by Jesus in Matthew 25?
Matthew 25:40 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.
Israel will be devastated during the tribulation. Orphans will be wandering the streets without parents and without food. An Israeli leader will allow all of this to happen.
Zec 11:16 For, lo, I will raise up a shepherd in the land, which shall not visit those that be cut off, neither shall seek the young one, nor heal that that is broken, nor feed that that standeth still: but he shall eat the flesh of the fat, and tear their claws in pieces.
God himself will raise this shepherd to serve his purpose of judging Israel during the final seven years of indignation spoken of by the prophet Daniel (Dan 9:24). The wicked shepherd will not care for the children who wander the streets having lost their parents. He will not help those whose lives have been broken. The phrase “nor feed that that standeth still”means he will not support those who are standing for what is right. The shepherd will not do what is right. He will do the opposite. He will greedily consume the wealth of Israel for himself. He will tear apart all those who reach out for help. The Israeli people will be orphaned, homeless, and hungry. God will reward every person who aids the people of Israel during the tribulation.
