(There is a Good, Just and Caring Shepherd)

Last week I wrote about what the Word of God says about Shepherds/Pastors that DO NOT fulfill their duty to teach, love and guide God’s flock. I believe America is experiencing the result of many decades of Bad shepherd/pastors False Pastors and Pastors that are nothing more than “hirelings” and doing what they do for their own profits and benefits with “CARING” about God’s sheep! Shame on them! The worse part is the Churches of America are suffering tremendously and God’s people are scattered without direction, purpose and guidance from God’s Word. Even worse is many of the “so-called sheep” are NOT at all God’s sheep but Satan’s that will endure an eternity in a lake of fire!

“When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: and before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from goats: and he shall set the sheep on his right hand, BUT THE GOATS on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, come ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:… Then shall he say also unto them on THE LEFT HAND, Depart from me, ye cursed, unto everlasting fire, PREPARED FOR THE DEVIL AND HIS ANGELS,” Matthew 25:31-34, 41 Emphasis mine

A “Good” shepherd won’t let that happen, first of all because there are NO GOATS in his flock ONLY REAL SHEEP! Secondly, he protects them and loves them so they won’t be scattered but enjoy a wonderful peaceful life guided by the shepherd! If you read Psalm chapter 23, you will read a very familiar and beautiful psalm that David wrote that starts with the words, “The Lord is MY shepherd.” David had a personal relationship with the Lord and knew what a shepherd’s job and responsibility was because he was a shepherd himself so what better a man to write about a shepherd than David!

What are the characteristics of a “Good Shepherd”

The #1 characteristic of a “Good shepherd” is he loves his sheep and the work of being a shepherd. And because he loves his sheep and he protects them to the point of being willing to give his life for the sheep. In John chapter 10:11, Jesus said this about Himself as being THE GOOD SHEPHERD that He is willing to give His life for the sheep.

“I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.”

David then wrote Psalm was willing to die to protect his sheep. He told Saul in 1st Samuel 17:34-38 just before he was to first Goliath that he killed a lion and a bear to protect his sheep. And He did it willingly. He was a good shepherd. Jesus said about Himself, “I lay down my life for the sheep,” John 10:15. To protect them from the wolves and predators spiritually. In 1st Peter 5:8, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about seeking whom he may Devour”.

In Matthew 7:15, False prophets are “Raving wolves” that are clothed in “sheep’s” clothing to deceive and devour the sheep. A good shepherd will teach TRUTH and True doctrine to protect the sheep, Jesus does that through His word. Paul told the Church at Ephesus that “Grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock” in acts 20:29.

A “hireling” not the owner, the shepherd will run when the wolves attack the sheep and flee and the flock would be scattered. A good shepherd would not run but stand to protect the sheep. Because a hireling, “Cometh not for the sheep” John 10:13.

Not only does a good shepherd protect the sheep from danger, a good shepherd feeds the sheep. He wants the sheep to be healthy with the “best” food and nutrition. The Lord the good shepherd has given His Word to feed us His sheep as should all good pastors to keep the believers spiritually healthy.

The shepherd does NOT “force feed” the sheep but provides food to all eat. The sheep have to eat to live! The sheep, believers, of the Lord need spiritual food.

“Man shall not live by bread alone but by every Word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God,” Matthew 4:4

Without eating they remain “babes” and do NOT grow! The Bible tells us that young believers, (lambs), will remain in the state of infancy without eating the “strong meat” of God’s Word, the food that is required to grow. That means a believer has to read and study God’s Word and be taught it by a faithful shepherd.

“for everyone that useth milk is UNSKILLFULL IN THE WORD OF RIGHTEOUSNESS: for he is a BABE but STRONG MEAT belongeth to that that are of FULL AGE, (Mature), even those who by REASON OF USE have their senses exercised to DISCERN BOTH GOOD AND EVIL,” Hebrews 5:13-14 Emphasis mine.

As a believer goes through the Word of God and needs it. IT READS HIM OR HER! It is NOT how many times you go through the Word of God but HOW MANY TIMES IT GOES THROUGH YOU THAT MATTERS! God’s Word needs to be precious and a priority in your Spiritual nourishment which has been provided by our GOOD SHEPHERD! God’s Word keeps a believer from evil. It protects the sheep

“Thy Word have I hid in mine heart that I might not sin against Thee,” Psalm 119:11

God’s Word is more precious than Gold! “More to be desired are they than gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb,” Psalm 119:10.

The Good Shepherd loves the sheep, feeds the sheep and protects the sheep but also guides the sheep!. Sheep are NOT herded like cattle but are led by the shepherd. They follow the shepherd as he by “example” guides them in the “paths of righteousness for his names’ sake,” Psalm 23:3. The paths that a shepherd guides the sheep into are for the good of the flock and he goes before the flock to make sure it is good and safe! He goes first!

“For even hereunto were ye called; because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an “EXAMPLE” that ye should FOLLOW his steps,” 1st Peter 2:21 Emphasis mine

Even in the presence of “our enemies” a good shepherd can prepare “a table” for us! Psalm 23:5

Lastly a good shepherd comforts us! So we can comfort others.

“Who comforted us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God” 2nd Corinthians 1:4

The world will SEE and KNOW who is helping us and comforts us!

“shew me a token for good; that they which hate me may see it, and be ashamed: because thou, Lord, hast holpen (Helped) me, and comforted me,” Psalm 86:17

Our Good Shepherd loves us, feeds us, protects us, guides us and comforts us His sheep! All good shepherds do the same!

We need in this day and age good shepherds to do the same!

Pray that I will be released soon that I can go forth and preach God’s Word and fight for my son’s release as well. Our prayer since the beginning of our kidnapping was that all of us can leave together free with our case dropped with EXTREME PREJUDICE! The Federal Claims Court is looking over our case and may the Lord guide the judge there to make a “just” decision in our favor!

May our Good SHEPHERD guide us all!
