Get Your Sheep Out Of The Pit


Isaiah 53:6 We’re all like sheep who’ve wandered off and gotten lost. We’ve all done our own thing, gone our own way.

(We who are saved will sometimes wander off to do are own thing.  Not thinking that we are lost, and that we need to get back in line with the Shepherd.  Blindly we Baah, Baah until were in need of Him!  What if you let your guard down, and you miss the sound of the Shepherd’s voice?  Call out to Him now while He is still here, before He is gone!)

Genesis 4:9God said to Cain, “Where is Abel your brother?”He said, “How should I know? Am I his babysitter?”

(How many times does God ask you basically the same thing?  Where is your brother, or sister?  The family who follows The sound of my voice.  Imagine if we said to God the same thing?  I’m not my brothers keeper; he can take care of himself!  What if the Shepherd; being Jesus were asked by God the same question!  Where are my sheep?  I don’t know?  They can take care of themselves!  I’m so busy right now; that I just don’t have the time to be bothered!  Beside your God; you can watch over them!)

Matthew 12:11 He replied, “Is there a person here who, finding one of your lambs fallen into a ravine, wouldn’t, even though it was a Sabbath, pull it out?

(You who are Sons of God; being filled with His love!  Do you not go, and rescue that sheep that belongs to God!  Even if it means breaking the law?  Just to save that one sheep for Him.  Are you are willing to forfeit; what He considers to be one of His most prized possession?   Are you always making sure that your needs are covered first, before you are willing to reach out to save that one lost sheep?)

Matthew 7:15“Be wary of false preachers who smile a lot, dripping with practiced sincerity. Chances are they are out to rip you off some way or other.

(False preachers are surrounding us, and they are wanting to seek out those that they can take advantage of!!  They Put on a false persona, and drain the life out of God’s weak vessels!  Stay protected by guarding your heart through prayer, reading the Bible, fasting, and praise & worship!)

Matthew 7:16 Chances are they are out to rip you off some way or other. Don’t be impressed with charisma; look for character. Who preachers are is the main thing, not what they say.

(The Holy Spirit is are guide!  When we are operating in the Indwelling of His Spirit we can see all things; having the eyes of God.  Holy Spirit is the silver chord that ties us right back to our Holy God!  You will be able to discern your path, and stay away from the enemies this way!)

John 10:3-5“Let me set this before you as plainly as I can. If a person climbs over or through the fence of a sheep pen instead of going through the gate, you know he’s up to no good—a sheep rustler! The shepherd walks right up to the gate. The gatekeeper opens the gate to him and the sheep recognize his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he gets them all out, he leads them and they follow because they are familiar with his voice. They won’t follow a stranger’s voice but will scatter because they aren’t used to the sound of it.”

1 Kings 3Then he said, “Cut the living baby in two—give half to one and half to the other.”

(In order to get out of the pit we have to be willing to let go of what and who we love and in letting go we hold on. You have to allow God to separate the sickness you’ve acquired in your in lifetime!  So, what you do have that is healthy in you can now be made whole again!  Giving you a beautiful life with Him!  Which is the greatest thing ever; beyond your wildest dreams!  Rather than accepting the things that only you have acquired on your own!  Release something old, and gain something new!  Freedom without boarders! AMEN)
