The Sovereign Shepherd October 16
And ye my flock, the flock of My pasture, are men, and I am your ELOHIYM, says ADONAI YAHUAH.
This scripture is so beautiful when written with the transliteration of the original Hebrew names of God.
It gives us the true meaning of what Father God is conveying to us His Flock. Here is how I translate the meanings: And you are My flock, the flock of My pasture, you are My men, and I AM your Mighty Creator, saith The Sovereign Controller, The LORD
We are His Sheep, and His pasture is the earth and the fullness thereof. Growing up, we had sheep and goats; the sheep are more to themselves, and the goats are more problematic. But the funny thing about goats, they will make you laugh with some of the antics they pull.
Sheep, on the other hand, are always trying to get out of the pasture. Sheep have this unique ability to find the holes in the fence and get into the next pasture. At least the ones we had when I was growing up as a child. I spent some time chasing stray sheep, and I wouldn't say I liked it.
A friend of mine has goats on his property, and he hates them. He tells me how much trouble they cause and extra work, always having to save them from their destruction. He tells me they always get their horns caught up in the fence, and if he does not come to the rescue, they will die.
Re-read the previous two paragraphs and change the words hated and hate into loved and love. Now you can have an understanding of what Jesus goes through, rescuing the goats and chasing after the lost sheep, except, somehow, He does it with love.
Even though sheep and goats are different, they graze side by side in the same pastures.
If only humankind could do the same.
He is: ADONAI YAHUAH
The Sovereign Controller, The LORD
