What is your sacrifice going to be, a goat or the Lamb?
Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats: - Exodus 12:5
In the Old Testament for the Passover, the Lord instructed the Israelites to sacrifice as a sacrificial offering, a one year old, male lamb without blemish. But if they did not manage to get a lamb they could sacrifice even a goat (kid) of one year old, male without blemish.
3 Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house:
4 And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb.
5 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:
But during the Day of Judgment the lambs (sheep) are separated from the goats. Only those who offered the Lamb of God as their sacrifice and become sheep will Passover in to the Promise Land (Kingdom of God).

11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
