John 10:16 “And I have other sheep, which are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they shall hear MY voice; and they shall become one flock with ONE shepherd.”
Folding into One!
So the Hour is late and the field is ready as GOD’s harvesters few…hastily gather HIS seed.
Both the Wheat and the Barley, both Jew and Gentile…are being now brought to HIS barns.
Of both Old and New Testaments, GOD remains Author…thus Shepherd of both flocks HE leads.
As such, look ahead to the joining of both when together in Heaven we’ll live!
As HIServant eagerly awaiting that grand union with CHRIST, in HIS cord of three strands,
Devotional: Acts 10:10-16 “And he became hungry and wanted something to eat, but while they were preparing it, he fell into a trance.”
11 “and saw the heavens opened and something like a great sheet descending, being let down by its four corners upon the earth.”
12 “In it were all kinds of animals and reptiles and birds of the air.”
13 “And there came a voice to him: “Rise, Peter; kill and eat.” 14 But Peter said, “By no means, LORD; for I have never eaten anything that is common or unclean.”
15 “And the voice came to him again a second time, “What GOD has made clean, do not call common.”
16 “This happened three times, and the thing was taken up at once to heaven.”
The purpose of the vision is to show Peter that GOD doesn’t see any person as unclean and that salvation is not only for Jews but also for Gentiles.
Romans 3:29: “Or is GOD the GOD of Jews only? Is he not the GOD of Gentiles too? Yes, of Gentiles also!”
So we are sent to every nation, tribe, kindred and tongue with the same saving message of Grace; the Gospel of CHRIST!
Revelation 7:9 “After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation,
…from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the LAMB, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands…”
Revelation 5:9 “And they sang a new song, saying, “Worthy are YOU to take the scroll and to open its seals, for YOU were slain,
…and by YOUR blood YOU ransomed people for GOD from every tribe and language and people and nation.”
So what Joy that will be when we’re folded into one with THE ONE and ONLY Shepherd of our souls!
JESUS, JESUS, JESUS!
Amen and amen!
