JESUS, THE GOOD SHEPHERD
John Verses From Chapter 10
1.Verily, verily, I (YESHUA) say unto you. He that entereth NOT by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and robber.
2. But HE that entereth in by the door is the Shepherd of the sheep.
(This tells us, beyond a doubt, that there are those who say they are our shepherds; and have done so, down through 2000 years; and the big fake is yet to come. Stand firm; never let anyone rob you of your Joy in the LORD.)
3.To HIM (YESHUA) the porter openeth, and the sheep Hear HIS voice; and HE calleth HIS own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
(the porter is the "watchman"!! How humbling...YESHUA knows HIS own sheep (that's us) by name. We will follow HIM as HE leadeth HIS own....)
4-5. And when he putteth forth HIS own sheep, HE goeth before them and the sheep follow HIM; for they know HIS voice...And a stranger will they NOT follow, but will flee from him; for they know not the voice of strangers.
(what better witness, than the Words from YESHUA's mouth. On our daily walk, HE is ever before us. When the going gets rough, HIS sheep get going!
We know that adversity WILL come; as they came for our ancestors and many martyred saints who are preparing for the LORD'S DAY; HIS great army, ready to march.
The watches have been set.. The instructions given to the children...We care NOT that the world or our adversaries hate us. With armor in place, we wait patiently for "THE VOICE OF OUR SHEPHERD".
