We Will Get The Answers When We Get To Heaven.

Many of our intellectual problems and difficult questions can be
pleasantly and reassuringly stored here:

"The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things
revealed belong to us and our children forever."
Deuteronomy 29:29

And . . .

Regarding some questions the Lord Jesus said:

"It is not for you to know."
Acts 1:7

And . . .

Not even the great Apostle Paul had all the answers:

"Now I know in part" __Paul
1 Corinthians 13:12

We will get the answers to our difficult questions when we get
home to Heaven. Meanwhile we wait patiently and we "Have faith
in God"__ The Lord Jesus (Mark 11:22)

Thoughts?

I am grateful that it is just "many" and not "all things" that we wait for the answers to.

When one gets to heaven the questions probably won't matter.
You may be right on that.

Nonetheless, the difficult questions do matter for many Christians
now living in this 21st century insane asylum and its comforting to
have the verses in the OP in one's mind as we make our journey
to a better and saner place.

Best.

What I'm concerned that I will be prepared. That I may be on Christ's right with the sheep and not a goat on the left (Mt. 25:31-46).

That passage is about nations. It says that right in verse 31.

You need to get saved so that you are in the body of Christ. That passage does NOT apply to anyone in the body of Christ.

You can KNOW the answer to that. You can KNOW it for an absolute fact.

"Jesus answered, “I did tell you, but you do not believe.
The works I do in my Father’s name testify about me,
but you do not believe because you are not my sheep.
My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow
me.I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish;
no one will snatch them out of my hand.My Father,
who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one
can snatch them out of my Father’s hand.30I and the
Father are one.”
John chapter 3

As long as we are following Him, we cannot be "snatched".

The "sheep" of the book of John are Israel. Paul never describes believers are sheep.

Nowhere but Rom 8:36..."As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter."
Read the next verse..... NAY!!! We are NOT sheep. Try again.

Rom 8:36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
Rom 8:37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

OK, then by that logic you don't have to follow Jesus.
Personally, He is my Shepherd, guard, leader, provider, and protector.
I feel sorry for those who try to live without Him as their Shepherd.
But I take great joy in knowing He is always ready to accept new "sheep" as members of His flock.

I follow Christ according to His current orders. You live in a mythological version of Him.

Good for you. You are confused.
I feel sorry for those who try to live without Him as their Shepherd.
That's because you're confused.
But I take great joy in knowing He is always ready to accept new "sheep" as members of His flock.
Again, confusion rules with you.

Does His "current order" include obedience to Him?
If it does, perhaps Jesus is your Good Shepherd and you don't even realize it.
You live in a mythological version of Him.
Good for you. You are confused.
That's because you're confused.
Again, confusion rules with you.
Then your version of confusion leads to obedience to God.
I am far from confused on this topic.
Thanks be to God.
