My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.” John 10:27-30.

“As for you, My sheep, the sheep of My pasture, you are men, and I am your God,” declares the LORD God. Ezekiel 34:31.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:

Sheep follow they do not lead. As for you, My sheep, the sheep of My pasture, you are men, and I am your God. Ezekiel 34:31. Jesus said, “My sheep hear My voice, I know them, and the follow Me.” John 10:27.

Follow Me. That is all you have to do. Follow. The Word is a light to your path and a lamp to your feet. Those who are led by the Holy Spirit are My sons.

When you go to a place you have never been and need to make your way through forests and out of the way places you hire a guide to lead you and be at your side so that you are not lost or hurt. You have a guide. The Holy Spirit. And He always knows the right way for you to go. My Son leads you in paths of righteousness for My Name’s sake.

You do not have to come up with the plan, I have The Plan already, you just need to follow it. I know well the plans I have for you, plans for your shalom and not evil, to give you a future and a hope. I have plans for you that outnumber the stars of the sky and the sands of the sea and in My book they were all written as I formed you in your mother’s womb. A life of good deeds prepared for you in advance in Christ Jesus that you should walk in them.

I have the Plan already, you just need to follow it. Like a construction project to raise a beautiful house. They just follow the plan and the house will be sound. You have the edifice of your life to raise but the Plan has been made so it is not difficult and the burden is not on you. If you ask ANYTHING in the Name of Jesus, He will do it and I will give it to you. I want you to say this now: “The LORD is my Shepherd, He leads me, I have only to follow.”

Follow Me. This makes life very simple. Jesus clears the path and opens the way, opens the door that no one can shut. He is the door.

Jesus told you that He is the good Shepherd and when He puts forth His own, He goes ahead of them and the sheep follow Him BECAUSE THEY KNOW HIS VOICE. Enter through Him, He is the door; if anyone enters through Him, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. You go in and out because by the Spirit you access the Kingdom within and then you go out into the world. He called His disciples to be with Him and then to go out to preach, teach and heal. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; but I sent Jesus that you may have life, and have it abundantly, both now and forever. My sheep hear His voice (the Word and the lead of the Holy Spirit) and I know them and they follow Him and He gives them eternal life and they will NEVER perish, and no one will snatch them out of His hand. For it is I who have sealed you in Christ when you believed and gave you to Jesus, and I am the Most High, and no one is able to snatch you out of My Hand. My Son and I are One. And when you are in us, you are one with us too.

Follow. Not even Jesus spoke or did things on His own initiative and neither should you. Follow Him and He will always lead you to Me. And He only said My Words and did the works I showed Him because My Words are eternal life.

Now if you are following, you should not be anxious and worried. He is showing you the Way. So you can rejoice always, pray without ceasing and give constant things, because in Christ I always lead you in triumph.

And as you follow, do not let other people get you off track. Remember Peter wanted to question about what My Will was for John but My Son told him, “How does that concern you, your business is to follow Me.” Yes, following Me is your full-time job. Be about your Father’s business, like Jesus. It is a family business.

Do not make a big deal out of earthly things and get in squabbles with people about them, especially not with other believers. Take the high road and smile, showing your gentleness to all. Paul had to write to two believers who were both helpful to him as about this, “I urge Euodia and I urge Syntyche to live in harmony (be of one mindset) in the Lord. Indeed, true companion, I ask you also to help these women who have shared my struggle in the cause of the gospel, together with Clement also and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the book of life.” Philippians 4:2-3.

The Book of Life. In My book. I keep books. Scrolls. I tell you about the final judgment, that books (scrolls) will be opened, and another book was opened, which is of life. And if anyone’s name is not written in the Book of Life, he shall be thrown into the lake of fire. Forever. This is serious. You want to make sure your name is written in that Book.

How do you make sure? You follow Jesus and He gives His sheep eternal life. Do not live in fear, little flock, it has pleased Me to give you the Kingdom. There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus for the law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and death. Hold fast to the Word of Life, it is an anchor behind the veil. And Jesus is My Word.

So to follow My Word, you must do what My Word says. Now, let us check, do you rejoice in Me always and let your gentleness be known to all because you are mindful that I am near? Or do you swallow the devil’s bait and quarrel and fight with others till you are so upset it is hard for you to pray or do anything fruitful?

Are you anxious for NOTHING—not about your job, not about your co-workers and boss, not about your inadvertent mistakes, not about your bad choices, not about the past, not about the future, not about the present, not about your siblings, not about your business, not about your finances, not about your health, not about your body, not about you appearance, not about your reputation, not about your accomplishments or your lack of accomplishments, and not about your relationships—but by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving (rooted and grounded in Christ and overflowing with gratitude) you make your requests know to Me, knowing I have got you covered, and My peace, which surpasses all comprehension will guard your hearts and you minds in Christ Jesus your Lord. When you could care less because you have given all the care to Me, you start smiling, rejoicing, dancing and praising. And you will be amazed at how I make all things work together for good when you give Me a heart of praise.

What are your requests? Make them known to Me. Write them down in a list. But I know what you need before you ask Me, but ask to receive. I know what you want, to prosper and be in good health even as your soul prospers. To be happy. To be free of pain, disease, and poverty. And you can be, for Christ redeemed you from the curse. You want your name written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. And I desire all that for you too. That is why I gave you Jesus.

Inspired by My Spirit, Paul prayed out the prayer that is My desire for every one of you, “For this reason also, since the day we heard of it, we have not ceased to pray for you and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and patience; joyously giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light.

I have qualified you to share in eternal life. I qualify you to be in the Book of Life when you receive Jesus as your Lord. That is how you are established in the Book of Life. Through Jesus. For I rescued you from the domain of darkness and transferred you to the kingdom of My beloved Son, in whom you have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. Colossians 1:9-14.

I clothed you in Christ when you were baptized into Him and sealed you in Him to raise you up on the Last Day. I have given Jesus first place in everything. Jesus has first place in life. Follow Him before you do anything else.

I Myself reached out and rescued you in Jesus from the realm of darkness. THE GREAT RESCUE MISSION. It looked impossible but you had the One to whom nothing is impossible performing it.

And you were formerly alienated and hostile in mind, engaged in evil deeds, yet Jesus has now reconciled you in His fleshly body through death, in order to present you before Me holy and blameless and beyond reproach. I made peace through the blood of the Cross, reconciling all the lost to Myself through My Son making us as one because I love you so.

Without Jesus you have no hope. Jesus is your hope. I sent Him to seek out and save the lost—the great rescue mission.

Your mind cannot even begin to grasp what I have prepared for you who love Me. Do not let the evil in you that you see make you scared that you lose all. No, dare to dream of the good that is about to befall you. Showers of Blessing. You cannot begin to imagine the beauty I bestow on you. Beauty for your ashes, good to fill your days. Just make your heart a heart of praise. Dare to believe I have forgiven you. Look at the Cross, it is for you, and that should be enough to give you confidence of My love for you. Jesus came to undo the work of the devil and Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.

I will restore the years the canker worm, the pin worm, and the gnawing locust took from you. The glory of the latter days of your house (you are a house of God and a gate of heaven) shall be far greater than the former. You have the early and the latter rain and your vats will overflow. You will finish with a good end.

Rejoice. No evil or depression can penetrate a heart rejoicing in My love. Start a new life with Me today.

You may be looking back at your life and feeling a bit like My apostle Paul when he wrote, “For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh; for the willing is present in me, but the doing of the good is not. For the good that I want, I do not do, but I practice the very evil that I do not want.” Romans 7:18-19. But what is the solution for all this? “Wretched man that I am! Who will set me free from the body of this death?” Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! Romans 7:24. He had found the ransom. And so have you. Jesus.

I love you. Do you not know it yet? If you will follow the Light and obey My Word and give Me a heart of praise and not be disturbed by anything great or small, I will give you the strength to leap over a wall, for I have taken down all walls at the shout of your praise and am with you and for you all of your days until the perfect Day dawns that never ends and I am your strength and song forever.
