Our Only Hope
The Old Testament prophet Jeremiah recorded the lament of God,
"My people have been lost sheep. Their shepherds have led them astray."
- Jeremiah 50:6a
Jesus felt the same way when He observed the people of Israel in His day,
When He [Jesus] saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. - Matthew 9:36
The Bible says that Israel was constantly being led astray by bad leaders. Well, like them, Americans have also have been led astray by bad leadership. But we must remember that God sees their evil deads and He cares for His sheep. Observe Ezekiel 34:10:
This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I now consider these shepherds my enemies, and I will hold them responsible for what has happened to my flock. I will take away their right to feed the flock, and I will stop them from feeding themselves. I will rescue my flock from their mouths; the sheep will no longer be their prey.
God rescued His flock through the death, burial and resurrection of His Son Jesus Christ. We have the victory in Him and Him alone. We can not fight this battle on our own. We will lose. We need the Good Shepherd to lead us.
"I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd lays down his life for the sheep."
- John 10:11
The Good Shepherd of Israel has gathered all those who believe in Him to be a part of His flock. Who are you going to follow?
- John 10:14-16
So God says to those who belong to Him, the same thing He said to Israel,
"You are my flock, the sheep of my pasture. You are my people, and I am your God. I, the Sovereign Lord, have spoken!” - Ezekiel 34:31
The Apostle Paul says it best in Romans 8:35-39 -
"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written:
"For your sake we face death all day long;
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered."
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
We believe God is raising up an army of "good shepherds" - true followers of Jesus who will help the sheep that have gone astray and who have been abused and slaughtered as subjects of the New World Order. We at StopTheSheepKillers.com are part of that army. Will you join us?
