The Good Shepherd 3

Home 

Psalm 23:3 **. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.

 Since the fall of man in the Garden of Eden the population now approaches 7 billion. Most of this wicked world has a need for restored souls. The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked. The list of wicked thoughts and actions multiplies daily as our Creator grows angrier each day because this sinful world does not meet the Holy standards required for entry into His soon coming Kingdom. Perishing mankind is blinded by the God of this world as the Apostle Paul tells the Church of God in 2 Corinthians 4:4, saying, “…The god of this age (Satan) has blinded, ( the minds) who do not believe, lest the light of the  gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them”.  ** Paul preached these words from God at The Church of God in Colossians 3:2-6, saying, “Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory. Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth; fornication (immoral sex), uncleanness, passion (lust), evil desire (greedy), and covetousness, which is idolatry. Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience.

 Once we turn back to our Creator, we give up worry, resentment, doubt and hate. Our minds and emotions require action by being led as sheep by the Good Shepherd. This is the journey into truth, peace and reality. Once we turn to God and cast our burdens upon Him, He will restore the soul to become a true son of God. Your soul will then be given a holy spiritual passport washed in atonement with the holy blood of the Lamb of God, the Messiah, who is Y’shua Christ Jesus. This is your passport for entering Into the Kingdom Come. This is the quickly coming Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven as spoken by Christ (Matthew 6:10).

HE LEADS ME IN THE PATHS OF RIGHTOUSNESS

2 Peter 3:13 **. Nevertheless, we, according to HIS promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.

 The preceding verse advises God will dissolve the heavens with fire and the elements will melt with fervent heat. However, the true sons of God with a valid passport will not be harmed. The true and righteous sons of God will treasure and obey the rules forever. The basic rules are the only words of God written in the Holy Bible which HE personally wrote in stone on Mount Sinai (Deuteronomy 10:4). These rules of love and His quickly coming Kingdom are the ten commandments of love (Deuteronomy 5:7-21).

It has been said that throughout life there is only discipline. Mankind rebelled before the first child was born into a disobedient world called sin. Yet, as we walk humbly along the path the Good Shepherd leads, He will lead us into His gentle fold. The gentle fold is led into the land of perfection ‘the dwelling place of all generations’. This is the eternal place of love, peace and joy, where there is no more hunger, pain or thirst.  This is the narrow road of discipline as we are led as gentle sheep to drink of the sweet waters of life within the Kingdom. This is the narrow road that leads back home to the deep love of our God and all that dwell therein. Turn now from this world of hate and be restored to life. Turn now from this evil world of hate to receive your reward as David said in Psalm 18:20, saying, “The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands He has recompensed me”.

FOR HIS NAME’S SAKE  

1 John 2:12 ** .I write to you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for HIS name’s sake. ** God is light; God is love; and God is life.  Mankind has the opportunity to enjoy the gift of fellowship with Father God and HIS name’s sake which is the Messiah, Y’shua Christ Jesus. Christ is the son of God that gave HIS life and blood as the Holy Lamb to atone for the sins of those that believe and walk the narrow sheep path leading into the Kingdom. As we walk and stay on the sheep path, He will guide and lead us; for outside the narrow sheep path represents the bear, the wolf and the roaring lion, your adversary, the devil seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8).

Deuteronomy 6:4 **... (The Lord is one!). ** As a man and wife are joined together as one to produce a family; so has our Lord joined his spirit with a woman to begin a family!  Most of mankind remains a prisoner and captive to sin by following the adversary of our Lord. However, we become one with the Lord and even brothers of HIS Holy Son, the Messiah. We walk with HIM along the narrow sheep path by keeping the rules of life everlasting. The Lord is a partner of life. He is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. He is my heart’s companion and HE will sustain forever those that love HIM by keeping His commandments.  Let us join the family of God today by glorifying His holy name by singing a sacred song (psalm) to our Devine Deity! Let us open our hearts and minds to become a family of God which is His desire, His plan to live with Him forever! ** When we believe and follow the narrow sheep path we discover a sense of newfound peace within our soul. The Prophet Isaiah tells us in 32:17, saying, “The work of righteousness will be peace, and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever”.  ** The Apostle Paul tells us in 1 Corinthians 2:9, saying, “…Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him”. Again in Romans 8:18, saying, “…The sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us”. **Give your heart, your mind and soul to the Lord today!
