John 10: 7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. Quoting: Goofy for God
8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. 9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. 10 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. 11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. 12 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. 13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. 15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16 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.
I have a wild cat story again that fits John 10. There are two cats fighting over the babies . One is a cat that had kittens and abandoned them they died. We had a wild storm coming and I heard the kittens crying behind the wooden fence. I went to see what was wrong and saw they where trapped between a wooden fence and a chain link. The two moms ran off and left as the rain poured. I managed to pull them through the chain link and they were soaked to the bone. I microwaved towels and got them dried and in a safe place.
The church man has created is much like the cat story fighting for territory that is not theirs . The sheep are scattered and abandoned everywhere. As we know we are in a time of correction. Everything is about saving the soul. The last thing I needed was to save those kittens and add to already homeless clowder.
The experience of that rescue is a great reminder to us all of why we were to be One in Christ. We only have to look at this generation of people of disobedience and children even changing their sex to understand why we needed godly sorrow to bring repentance. We were to care not for flesh but souls. If the souls are Ephesians 4 then all else would fall into place. The greatest accomplishment of satan was to make us divided by denominations of different doctrines. We forgot the power of satan to make evil look good. The devil is so powerful Jude says this “9Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.”
The Lord is mad at our division and we need to listen to His correction. We have become people pleaserers and a proud people the two things He hates the most. When Jesus returns we will not be Baptist , Methodist or any denomination , we will either be of Ephesians 4 or chaff. He is showing us to throw out all that is taught of humans and be One in Him. James tells us once were are taught in Spirit , we do not need human teachers and we spend our lives keeping each other in truth. We have left God's children out in the storms of this life like those kittens, with doctrines of devils and wonder why they are so lost and confused even about their bodies.
Have nothing to do with denominations created in the last few thousand years. They were getting it wrong in John , look at us now....Like those cats, there are two fighting for our souls , Jesus went to that Cross to save us from this evil world. The devil makes everything about this life and claims territory know the difference in this time of confusion. The Word is clear in the right hands taught by the Spirit of God... Like that storm, the worst place to be in this life is trying to survive without the church Jesus suffered and died for. Only people that are of the Spirit of God and taught like Paul , not of man or by man is who we listen to,they will be Ephesians 4...
Moral of the story is this. It was hard work saving those kittens that may or may not live. Imagine what Jesus did for us just to abandon what He created for our own selfish desires
