GOOD SHEPHERD versus hireling.

JESUS is the Good Shepherd and the Devil is the hireling.

Jesus explains, says: “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.

The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.

I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine” (John 10:10-14).

“As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep. And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd” (John 10:15-16).

“THE LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever” (Psalm 23:1-6).

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8), says: “Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” (Luke 12:32).

“Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.
Sing unto the LORD with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of a psalm.
With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the LORD, the King.
Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
Let the floods clap their hands: let the hills be joyful together
Before the LORD; for he cometh to judge the earth: with righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity” (Psalm 98:4-9).

“Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations” (Psalm 100:4-5).

Jesus says: “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat; because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it” (Matthew 7:13–14).

REWARDS DAY is the LAST DAY| DAY OF JUDGMENT.

“And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt” (Daniel 12:2).

Jesus says: “I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?” (John 11:25-26).

“No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the [LAST DAY]” (John 6:44).

“Wherefore God saith: ‘Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light’” (Ephesians 5:14).

“I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).

“[IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TRIBULATION] of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory” (Matthew 24:29-30).

“And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city” (Revelation 22:12-14).

“Behold, he cometh with clouds; and [EVERY EYE SHALL SEE HIM], and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen” (Revelation 1:7).

THE E N D.

Absolutely nothing will be remembered of this world!

“Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup” (Psalm 11:6).

“Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness” (2 Peter 3:13).

“The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved, but God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another” (Psalm 75:3, 7).

“For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. “Be ye glad and rejoice forever in that which I create” (Isaiah 65:17-18).

“For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him” (Isaiah 64:4).

WARNING: R E P E N T before it is too LATE!

“God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the Son of man, that he should repent” (Numbers 23:19).

“And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead” (Acts 17:30-31).

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:16, 17-18).

Every human being would be wise to come to the knowledge that God created this Heaven and Earth including human beings (Genesis 1:1-26).

“Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for me?” (Jeremiah 32:27).

God is commanding every one to repent. It is not a request; it is a command because time is coming to an end, and God says:

“For I will not contend forever, neither will I be always wroth: for the spirit should fail before me, and the souls which I have made” (Isaiah 57:16).

Jesus, the only begotten Son of God whom is ordained by God, the Father says: “The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel” (Mark 1:15).

“And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come” (Matthew 24:14). “Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3).

“Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away” (Matthew 24:35).

JESUS, a refugee?

In a recent article, the headline reads: “Trump’s Spiritual Adviser: Sure, Jesus Was A Refugee, But He Didn’t Do Anything Illegal”.

This person’s basis for stating “…Jesus Was A Refugee…” is taken from Scripture when Jesus was born and his parents took him into Egypt (read Matthew 2:13-15).

The article points out as quoted: “For many Christians, the fact that the founder of their faith was a refugee means that they are called to welcome and serve migrants and refugees today.”

“But according to Paula White, spiritual adviser to President Donald Trump, that’s not the right way to interpret this Biblical story. White claimed that although Jesus was a refugee, he didn’t cross borders illegally.”

For the complete article see link below:
https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/trumps-spiritual-adviser-sure-jesus-was-a-refugee-but-he-didnt-do-anything-illegal/ar-AAzWHA1

It is not correct analogy to say: “Jesus Was A Refugee, But He Didn’t Do Anything Illegal” or “Jesus was a refugee, he didn’t cross borders illegally”.

Firstly, it is a bit farfetched to put JESUS, the only begotten Son of God within the context on today’s refugee crisis where within this world’s system there are established borders for countries with requirements for passage across borders.

When an angel of God is somewhere on this earth, are they here illegally? Specifically, if an angel of God shows up in a major US city, did this angel cross the border illegally?

When JESUS returns on the Last Day and steps onto the Mount of Olives (Zechariah 14:8–9, 4), will he be there illegally ?

NO!

Who does this earth belong to?

GOD. “IN the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). “For all the earth is mine” (Exodus 19:5).

JESUS is the only begotten Son of God, and he does not need permission from Lucifer, the prince of this world, the Devil, aka Satan to go any where in this earth. Neither do the angels of God. JESUS and so are the angels of God are from HEAVEN. The heavens do rule (Daniel 4:26).

“The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all” (Psalm 103:19).

Jesus reminds us of one of God’s commandments when he was here on earth, saying:

“Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself” (Matthew 19:19).
Surely, if there are people fleeing for their life from a country into a neighbouring country for refuge, that country must do their utmost to help feed, cloth and house those Refugees.

“Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law” (Romans 13:10).

Every human being must keep at the forefront of our daily lives that this Heaven and Earth belongs to God, and be reminded as it is written:

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved” (John 3:16-17).

HEAVEN and EARTH.

Every human being mustkeep at the forefront of our daily lives that this Heaven and Earth belongs to God.

“IN the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1).

“For all the earth is mine” (Exodus 19:5).

“The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land. The earth is the LORD’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein” (Psalms 95:5, 24:1).

DAY OF JUDGMENT: END OF THE WORLD. Good Seed or Sheep versus Tares or Goats?

When Jesus returns on the Day of Judgment on the Last Day, he says: “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 7:21).

Jesus explains: “He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; the field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; the enemy that sowed them is the Devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels” (Matthew 13:37-39).

“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:
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: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left” (Matthew 25:31-32).

“Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” (Matthew 7:21-23).

“As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; and shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth” (Matthew 13:40-42).

“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:” (Matthew 25:41). “And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal” (Matthew 25:46).

“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:” (Matthew 25:34).

“Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear” (Matthew 13:43).

“Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” (Luke 12:32).

World Peace or End of the World?

In recent years the word ‘World’ has become a byword used in such phrases as ‘World Government’, New World Order’, ‘World Peace’ and so on. However, those who believe that one day there will be a new age of peace, prosperity and perpetuity on this earth, are being cleverly blind sided with deception and lies by the prince of this world.

We are not to be deceived by doctrines spreading fables, fairytales, and fantasies of a millennium or a new age of world peace to come on this earth because the devil knows he has a “…short time…” (Revelation 12:12); and he is using every possible means to deceive the whole world (Revelation 13:14) into thinking that one day there is going to have peace here on earth.

Paul was very emphatic when he said: “For when they shall say, peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape” (1 Thessalonians 5:3).

“Behold, their valiant ones shall cry without: the ambassadors of peace shall weep bitterly” (Isaiah 33:7).

Once again, let us take heed of the words by Peter, a disciple of Jesus who said: “The day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up” (2 Peter 3:10).

Let us be spiritually prepared every day for the Last Day when this earth perishes at the end of time, and be comforted to know that “The LORD preserveth all them that love him: but all the wicked will he destroy” (Psalm 145:20).

Armageddon

FATHER in HEAVEN or father in hell?

When Jesus was here on earth many of his own people refused to believe in him, and he explained to them saying:

“I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father. They answered and said unto him, ‘Abraham is our father.’ Jesus saith unto them, ‘If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham. But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.

Ye do the deeds of your father.’ Then said they to him, ‘We were not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.’

Jesus said unto them, ‘If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me’” (John 8:38–42).

Jesus went on to say, “Ye are of your father the Devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it” (John 8:44).

“I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins” (John 8:24). “And he said unto them, ‘Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world’” (John 8:23).

Our Father is in Heaven.

Jesus taught us to pray saying: “Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen” (Matthew 6:9-13).

“Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” (Luke 12:32).
