I want every single person to Praise the LORD . Hands up , I say and let us praise the LORD . GOD ALONE puts love for truth on hearts . And that LOVE HE PUT ON MY HEART , had no taste for what I was seeing or hearing . But , THE BIBLE , NOW that was like honey and STILL IS . I mean Sniff whiff, how come so many seem to love the mix and got no discernment . Yet few , THEY LOVE TRUTH , THAT BIBLE fills them full, and they are content . ONE is the work of grace the other is of the flesh . And I assure us all, the love of that bible , Aint of no flesh . WHY Do so many enjoy all these books , that even a whiff of them had me gagging like heck . OH YES the Grace of GOD is real . AND that type of LOVE , LOVES ONLY , REJOICES ONLY , IN THE TRUTH .
Here is some understanding I have received from the Lord about this Butero. What those false shepherds are doing actually is feeding themselves....of those sheep. Instead of feeding and guarding the sheep for the Lord. Shepherds are servants, the sheep don't belong to the shepherds to fatten their wallets and exploit them to build their "ministries". They are to care for the sheep for their Master who is the one who owns the sheep and does with them what HE wills. What is happening in our times is exactly and precisely what happened with Israel:
Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks?
Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them that are fed: but ye feed not the flock.
The diseased have ye not strengthened, neither have ye healed that which was sick, neither have ye bound up that which was broken, neither have ye brought again that which was driven away, neither have ye sought that which was lost; but with force and with cruelty have ye ruled them.
And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd: and they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered.
For I am going to raise up a shepherd over the land who will not care for the lost, or seek the young, or heal the injured, or feed the healthy, but will eat the meat of the choice sheep, tearing off their hooves.
Exactly sister . exactly . But I got good news , and I personally experienced this myself . It did not matter how much they talked and hyped and so on ,THEIR language was dead to me . No amount of sugar could give it life . BECAUSE THE TRUE SHEPARD , HIS FOOD IS PLENTY and the stink of those others , Smells like rotted eggs and dungto a lamb . I experienced this sister . I had no taste at all, PEROID for their stuff , EVEN ON DAY ONE . just dead and lifeless . BUT THE BIBLE , OH THAT WAS AS HONEY .
Amen, praise the Lord frienduff.......He can give us discernment from the get go. I was born again in a Brethren church but didn't stay there long....they were cessationist unfortunately.
Those false shepherds of scripture sound familiar....hmmm, reminds me of the Catholic church.....not saying every individual priest is ambitious and insincere, some are very sincere actually....but talking about the organization as a whole. For them it's all about the organization and not about the sheep. In Christ it's the opposite, the church is for the sake of the sheep...to bring them to Christ, get them healed up and delivered, sanctified, fed and growing so they can be presented to Christ. In Catholicism the sheep are just there to prop up their organization, it's so wrong!
