Please DO NOT read this if you are not a leader. Strictly for the mature only!
One day I was thinking about Jesus’s wife – that immediately after seeing this fresh woman, He had to immediately leave without getting married – and leave her under someone’s care! Can you imagine that for a moment?
I now understand why Jesus three times said to Simon Peter “Do you love me? If you do, treasure my wife.
And how do you feel when the steward you have entrusted your fresh new wife does not take good care of her but instead abuses her?
I was shivering when I suddenly saw how she had been abused, violated, enslaved by her care givers the modern shepherds who now treat her like their servant. Is it because the Master has delayed that we have not only dropped the standards but we have turned on his wife?
And she is soft and tender, not designed to rebel, no wonder she is called a wife, she is submissive and loyal even to her abusers because they have been appointed by her husband as stewards. It’s not in her DNA to fight back or resist or be disloyal and many have taken advantage of her for ungodly self centered gain.
She is called the sheep (she goes to the slaughter silently unlike screaming goats) for that reason, and Jesus called her my sheep.
Today the world calls believers brainwashed, gullible, …and all sorts of bad words all because they are designed to be followers … of the Gospel. I don’t blame the sheep, I blame the abusers who have literally staged a ‘not a coup’ coup.
But one day the shepherds will face the master if he does not replace them in this life. And those who have replaced them should never entertain the thought of repeating the same things – knowingly or unknowingly.
His church is one and anyone who gets born again today even though through a specific ‘church’/structure is born into that ONE CHURCH not to a denomination or sections belonging to Paul or Apollos or whoever. Those who divide his church are worse than those who divided his garment/dress by chopping it and distributing to one another as he hung on the cross, they are actually chopping his body.
