ARE YOU A FLOCK MARKED FOR SLAUGHTER?
The LORD God Almighty, The LORD Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit is sending His servants (The True Shepherds) to pasture the flock (The congregation and the children of The LORD God Almighty) that have been marked for slaughter by the false shepherds (The False Apostles, False Pastors, False Prophets); particularly the oppressed of the flocks (those who have no one to take care of them and show them the right way/path/road). This is well stated in the book of Zechariah 11:4 which states as follows: '“This is what the Lord my God says: “Shepherd the flock marked for slaughter.”'
Also in the book of Zechariah 11:7 which states as follows: “So I shepherded the flock marked for slaughter, particularly the oppressed of the flock. Then I took two staffs and called one Favor and the other Union, and I shepherded the flock.”
-The False shepherds are actually selling the flock at a price and thereby these False shepherds are becoming rich while the flock which have been bought after being sold at a price become marked for slaughter for they become exchanged at a price (for the altar/house/temple of The LORD has been turned into a market for exchanging goods and services) at the altar and thus become deprived of life that comes through hearing the truth and being touched by the power of The Holy Spirit: The giver of Life (Eternal Life).These False Shepherds are wolves in a sheep skin because they are falsely using the name of The LORD to enrich themselves and that's why they are busy proclaiming: “Praise The LORD, I am rich!”. They do not care about the flock's present condition and eternal destiny; they thus don't spare the flock but plunder them for slaughter. All this is well captured in the book of Zechariah 11:5 which states as follows: “Their buyers slaughter them and go unpunished. Those who sell them say, ‘Praise the Lord, I am rich!’ Their own shepherds do not spare them.”
-The LORD is saying that time has now come for the flock (everyone everywhere) to run away from the false shepherds; because The LORD will no longer have pity on those who do not run away from the false shepherds. And this is well stated in the book of Zechariah 11:6 which states as follows: '“For I will no longer have pity on the people of the land,” declares the Lord. “I will give everyone into the hands of their neighbors and their king. They will devastate the land, and I will not rescue anyone from their hands.”'
-If the flock detests (rejects) the message of the LORD through His true shepherds, then The LORD will withdraw His favour upon the stubborn flock and will in essence take away from them His true shepherds. The LORD will take away His anointed and powerful word away from them; the word/message that reveals very deep mysteries and Revelations. So the favour of The LORD upon them through the anointing and the glorious move of The Holy Spirit will be taken away from them and so they will be hearing but not understanding; reading but not understanding; seeing but nor perceiving. This is well captured in the book of Zechariah 11:10-11 which states as follows: “Then I took my staff called Favor and broke it, revoking the covenant I had made with all the nations. It was revoked on that day, and so the oppressed of the flock who were watching me knew it was the word of the Lord.”
-Because of their corrupt ways: of even corrupting the word of God with the love of money; by exchanging the truth of God, the love of God and The LORD Himself for money, The LORD will throw away their offering and sacrifice because of their wickedness i.e their sacrifice will not be acceptable before The LORD because they have forsaken the truth for a lie. And this is well stated in the book of Zechariah 11:12-13 which states as follows: '“I told them, “If you think it best, give me my pay; but if not, keep it.” So they paid me thirty pieces of silver. And the Lord said to me,“Throw it to the potter”—the handsome price at which they valued me! So I took the thirty pieces of silver and threw them to the potter at the house of the Lord.”'
-So in view of all these, there is a separation that is going to take place in the altar of The LORD: the separation of the false shepherds from the true shepherds; the separation of the contrite (Repentant) flock from the stubborn flock having a heart of stone; the separation of the true, pure & holy church from the false, corruptible & filthy church. All this is well captured in the book of Zechariah 11:14-16 which states as follows: '“Then I broke my second staff called Union, breaking the family bond between Judah and Israel. Then the Lord said to me, “Take again the equipment of a foolish shepherd. For I am going to raise up a shepherd over the land who will not care for the lost, or seek the young, or heal the injured, or feed the healthy, but will eat the meat of the choice sheep, tearing off their hooves.”'
-The LORD will then finally inflict punishment on the false shepherds (false apostles, false prophets, false pastors etc) because He has given them time to Repent of their evil ways and to take to the narrow road (the road of Repentance, Righteousness, Holiness, Truth and Complete Surrender to The LORD Jesus Christ) but they have refused. For in the past they have gone unpunished but now their punishment is at hand. And so The LORD will get rid of them. And this is well stated in the book of Zechariah 11:17 which states as follows: '“Woe to the worthless shepherd, who deserts the flock! May the sword strike his arm and his right eye! May his arm be completely withered, his right eye totally blinded!”'
Also in the book of Zechariah 11:8 which states as follows: “In one month I got rid of the three shepherds.”
-So the fundamental question is: “Who Are The False Shepherds?”. These are them who have exchanged the truth of God for money; those who use the name of The LORD to enrich themselves; those who are slaughtering the flock without caring for the lost (Who need to be evangelized/preached to) or seeking the young (those who need to grow in the word of The LORD and the anointing of The LORD) or heal the injured (Comforting through petitioning for the flock through prayer and intercession and fasting).
I urge everybody everywhere on the entire earth to Interrogate himself/herself (with the help of The Holy Spirit) to ensure that you are not a flock marked for slaughter!!!
PREPARE THE WAY FOR THE COMING OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST IN ABSOLUTE REPENTANCE, RIGHTEOUSNESS, HOLINESS, TRUTH AND COMPLETE SURRENDER TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST (YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH). TIME IS ABSOLUTELY OVER; THE MESSIAH JESUS CHRIST IS IMMINENTLY COMING TO PICK HIS BRIDE!!!
I acknowledge today that you are LORD and savior of all mankind,
and today I have recognized my shortfall,
I repent and turn away from all sin.
Please cover me with your precious blood,
and establish your word in my life,
that I may be found in righteousness and holiness
and write my name in your book of life
and baptize me with the power of the Holy Spirit
in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.
Shalom!!! Shalom!!! Shalom!!!
