One Flock

John 10:14-16: NKJV: I am the good shepherd; and I know MY sheep, and am known by MY own. As the Father knows ME, even so I know the Father; and I lay down my live for the sheep. And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear MY voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd.

 

The believers and doers of our Lord God’s word are good men of faith as the Messiah compared sheep to good men that fully depend on their Creator. The worldwide Church of God is the current sheepfold of one which is brought together to hear the truth of the one God. ** John 11:51-52: …; But being high priest that year he prophesied that Jesus would die for the nation, and not for that nation only but also that HE would gather together in one the children of God who were scattered abroad. ** The one flock and one shepherd is representative of the soon coming return of the Messiah’s children of God scattered in all nations to become one flock and one Church of God. This one church was established as one accord on the holy commanded Day of Pentecost in 31 A.D (Acts 2:1).

 

 Pentecost is called the Feast of weeks in the Torah, the law: Exodus 34:22: And you shall observe the Feast of Weeks of the first fruits of the wheat harvest, and the Feast of Ingathering (Feast of Tabernacles)at the year’s end. ** Numbers 28:26: Also on the day of the first fruits, when you bring a new grain offering to the Lord at your Feast of Weeks (Pentecost), you shall have a holy convocation (Sabbath). You shall do no customary work. It is so sad that the devil has blinded mankind into thinking they are keeping the law of our Creator by doing their own many ways of thinking by ignoring the holy laws of love. Instead they worship the devil of hate in doing their own corrupted feast and festivals of the devil. First John 4:16: And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God and God in him.  ** Whoever lives in love lives in our Lord God? Think about it. As the end times rapidly approach, this evil world grows rapidly in the hate of eternal death and will not change their hateful ways in their soul to seek eternal life.  The eternal river of the water of life in the soon coming new world is only for those that love (Read Revelation 22:1 and Ezekiel 47:1).

 

Nehemiah 1:4-5: So it was, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept and mourned for many days; I was fasting and praying before the God of heaven. And I said: I pray, Lord God of heaven, O great and awesome God, YOU who keep YOUR covenant and mercy with those who love YOU and observe YOUR commandments.  ** Nehemiah in Hebrew is Nehemyah meaning Comfort of Yahweh (God). Nehemiah appealed to God with tears of sorrow for the distressed survivors in Jerusalem that had returned from captivity in Babylon. Nehemiah’s appeal used the Hebrew word checed, 2617 denoting mercy, loving kindness and pity. ** On Mount Sinai our Lord God of mercy and loving kindness spoke this checed in Exodus 34:6-7. In Exodus 20:6, our Lord God said: But showing mercy to thousands, to those who love ME and keep MY commandments. ** The devil, Satan has blinded this evil world into a world of hate and chaos instead of keeping the holy commandments of love spoken by our Creator.

 

The Lord your God wrote the Ten Commandments of love in stone as documented in Deuteronomy 5:6-22. The last words in verse 22: And HE (God) wrote them on two tablets of stone and gave them to me (Moses). ** The Lord said in verse 29: Oh, that they had such a heart in them that they would fear ME and always keep all MY commandments, that it might be well with them and with their children forever!  ** Psalm 81: 13-15: Oh, that MY people (mankind) would listen to ME, that Israel (and the entire world) would walk in MY ways! I would soon subdue their enemies, and turn MY hand against their adversaries. The haters of the Lord would pretend submission to Him, but their fate (death, She’ol) would endure forever. ** How simple it is! Those that love the Lord their God and their brethren as themselves by walking with the Lord in love by keeping HIS Holy Commandments awake to life. This is eternal life forever in the soon coming new heaven and earth.

 

1 Corinthians 10:6-12: Now these things became our examples, to the intent that we should not lust after evil things as they also lusted. And do not become idolaters as were some of them. As it is written:  The people sat down to eat and drink and rose up to play (dance with a god of gold in Exodus 32:6-19). Nor let us commit sexual immorality, as some of them did, and in one day twenty-three thousand fell (Another thousand fell the overlapping day as documented in Numbers 25:1-9); nor let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted and were destroyed by serpents (Numbers 21:6-9); nor complain, as some of them also complained, and were destroyed by the destroyer (Numbers 14:1-7). Now all these things happened to them as examples, and they were written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages have come. Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.

 

 As the ends of the ages rapidly come, those that do not walk in the ways of the Lord by keeping all HIS commandments will fall. Under the guidance of Satan, the devil, the ends of the ages will be much worse than the above examples of disobedience in the wilderness. The Washington Times reported: New intelligence indicates that North Korea is moving ahead with building its first road-mobile intercontinental ballistic missile, an easily hidden weapon capable of hitting the United States, according to Obama administration officials.

 

Jude 20-21: But you, beloved, building yourselves up on our most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. ** Leviticus 17:11…..For it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul.** Only the Holy Lamb and Son of God, Christ Jesus who is without blemish (sin) is worthy to atone for your soul and give you everlasting life! Believe, obey and do today by keeping all HIS commandments written in stone by the hand of God!

 

Be blessed until we meet again!
