John 10 The hireling sees the wolves and flees
1 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
This is why election fraud is critical, we cannot have people getting positions of power by climbing up some other way.
2 But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. 3 To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 4 And when he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them; and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. 5 Yet they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers.” 6 Jesus used this illustration, but they did not understand the things which He spoke to them.
Look at the protests in Brazil, in the US, in France, in Peru, all over the world. People are refusing to follow these thieves and liars.
Jesus the Good Shepherd
7 Then Jesus said to them again, “Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. 8 All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them.
This is why before the Lord returns there must be many false Christs coming in the name of Jesus (false Christian preachers claiming to be anointed of God).
9 I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. 10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
What have we seen in the last few years, especially because of the pandemic. People all over the world have stood up to speak the things that they have seen and heard. The super apostles, the false brethren claiming to be "anointed of God", these ones were all trying to suppress the function of the Body, not encourage it.
11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep. 12 But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them.
That is a very interesting point. The wolf "catches the sheep and scatters them". I saw this pastor who was arrested and charged because while outside an abortion clinic he pushed a man that was harassing his son. They show up at his house with a swat team, they put him in handcuffs and shackle his feet, and they threaten to put him in prison and bankrupt him with fines. Why? So that they will intimidate many others and "scatter them".
13 The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep. 14 I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own. 15 As the Father knows Me, even so I know 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 will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd.
I was reminded of this passage watching Kabul fall to the Taliban. It seems very clear to me that Biden "climbed up some other way" to become president using fraud and a cyber attack through the voting machines from China. The president of Afghanistan was a hireling, a puppet that as soon as he saw the wolves coming he fled. He had a bigger army that was better equipped but he was a coward. I feel like this is very timely. The day of the Lord is when the full revelation of how evil and corrupt human government is will be made known to the whole world. The United Nations composed of globalists is "the beast" that whore of Babylon has been riding. The United States has become the great Babylon and our leaders like Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris represent the "whore of Babylon". The whole world views our politicians as whores who will prostitute themselves. At the end of the age the Beast will hate the whore and she will be "sacrificed", we see her burned with fire and naked. You can be sure there are many countries that hate the US and they see that now is their opportunity to act, strike while the skillet is hot. These audits could flip the situation any minute and Trump could be reinstated. Act while a feeble president is still officially "in charge". The same is true of the church, you will see the hirelings flee when the persecution comes, like washing mud off of stones. You will see the genuine believers giving their life for the sheep.
17 “Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again. 18 No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father.” 19 Therefore there was a division again among the Jews because of these sayings. 20 And many of them said, “He has a demon and is mad. Why do you listen to Him?” 21 Others said, “These are not the words of one who has a demon. Can a demon open the eyes of the blind?”
At this point Biden's popularity is down around 30%. That is astoundingly bad and even the most favorable news media is horrified by what they saw in Kabul. Even the staunchest Democrats are embarrassed by the migrants being housed in expensive hotels who are complaining about the sheets, or the food they are getting for free. The events of the last year have opened the eyes of the blind, they were rabidly anti Trump or "never Trump" and now they can see there is something worse than a guy who has mean tweets.
The Shepherd Knows His Sheep
22 Now it was the Feast of Dedication in Jerusalem, and it was winter. 23 And Jesus walked in the temple, in Solomon’s porch. 24 Then the Jews surrounded Him and said to Him, “How long do You keep us in doubt? If You are the Christ, tell us plainly.”
Wow, we just jumped to Hanukah. This is a key point to the tribulation, it will convince many people to repent. Before they believed in Jesus but thought Jesus freaks were too extreme or embarrassed them, or should not make waves or should not get involved in political issues. However, after the first rapture He who restrains will step aside and then they will see what the world is like with Antichrist and demons running wild. What we are seeing in Kabul is simply a foretaste of what we are about to see in the US. What did we see this Hanukkah? We saw threats of nuclear war with Russia.
25 Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in My Father’s name, they bear witness of Me. 26 But you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep, as I said to you. 27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. 28 And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. 30 I and My Father are one.”
There is only one good shepherd. Follow him. Do not follow the phonies. They may sparkle like lightening, they may be a pretty boy with a golden tongue. Just remember, Jesus laid down His life for you.
Renewed Efforts to Stone Jesus
31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone Him. 32 Jesus answered them, “Many good works I have shown you from My Father. For which of those works do you stone Me?” 33 The Jews answered Him, saying, “For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy, and because You, being a Man, make Yourself God.” 34 Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your law, ‘I said, “You are gods” ’? 35 If He called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken), 36 do you say of Him whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’? 37 If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me; 38 but if I do, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, that you may know and believe that the Father is in Me, and I in Him.” 39 Therefore they sought again to seize Him, but He escaped out of their hand.
Wow, they are threatening to fire people if they don't get the vaccine, and look how quickly people tremble over losing their job. There are 10 million job openings, you can get another job. Here they are threatening to stone Jesus and He doesn't blink.
The Believers Beyond Jordan
40 And He went away again beyond the Jordan to the place where John was baptizing at first, and there He stayed. 41 Then many came to Him and said, “John performed no sign, but all the things that John spoke about this Man were true.” 42 And many believed in Him there.
This is the other thing, the more the tribulation heats up the more people will believe in Jesus. This is the revival you have been praying for.
