* BEST OF DTB #63* The Guardian Angel: Where Are Our Shephards

“The grass withers, and the flowers fade, but the word of God stands forever.” Isaiah 40:8


Pray with me: Most gracious Heavenly Father, we cry out for the faithfulness of the Shepherds to return and be like the faithfulness of Christ. May the Holy Spirit give them the strength to separate again from the world so that they serve you by tending your sheep. The Children are dying and losing their souls because of the lack of true Shepherds, turn the Shepherds back to a valiant faith that can face the confusion and conflict. Father give your Shepherds strength to overcome temptations and help them to return to fidelity in you. May those that Shepherd have self sacrifice and a denial of self as you protect them from evil. Let the Shepherds pick up their cross and again follow you. May the light of your Truth shine through their lives and return them to good works as defined by you, not man. They have but human hearts with human frailty, and have been weak in times of trouble and sorrow. In thought, word, and deed, give them a desire and your Grace to steadily grow in holiness. Increase their wisdom, knowledge, and understanding of your Truth. Let your will be done in their lives, so that your sheep are protected. Give them the strength to lead the sheep into the battles that put the lives and souls of your children at risk.

Bottom line, pray, stand, and act. And when you do anything, do it to honor and glorify the Lord, always seeking that HIS will be done.

Understand this right now, stop and pray that you understand what I am about to tell you. It is so important that you repent and pray that you will be humble, it is hard for many and for many different reasons.

For a Shepherd it can be a thorn in the side, for a servant warrior for the Lord it can make his warrior attributes with little or no effect, the power of God will not be with the proud.

Humility must be one of the greatest attributes of the Shepherds that are servant warriors for God. God will use the humble, but each of us have to understand that pride is an abomination to God.

To the Shepherd and the servant warrior, blessed be the day when the two are one, as long as it is in humility and seeking to honor and glorify God. You have heard it said, “Pride goes before the fall”, and to paraphrase Paul, you can be right, but at the same time very wrong in the eyes of God, if you do not lead all things with love and forgiveness. Also, understand that the words in the article can cause a strong reaction.

May each of our brothers that are ignorant, or weak in any way, by the grace of God understand the beauty and love of the chastisement within this article. May I someday join each person that will feel offended with the truth in the words that follow, committed to Jesus, and placed in the hands of God, who is our refuge and our strength. Remember those that have a warrior spirit and will feel a carnal pull toward pride, need to remember your wretchedness in the eyes of God up to the point of your submission to the Holy Spirit, and that you do nothing of any good toward man that is not a gift of grace from God. Let the words of Mary ring in your ears as you read on, “this is my son, do what he says.”
Like Paul said to the Galatians, “ Have I now become your enemy because I am telling you the truth?” They killed Jesus for telling the Truth, they killed the Apostles for telling the Truth, they killed the prophets for telling the Truth, many Christians are being killed or imprisoned today for telling, seeking or standing for the Truth. Lord, may I always speak your Truth with boldness, where ever that may take me.

May every word of every article we give to you in this DeeperTruthblog. bear witness to the Truth, to give honor and glory to God. Our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ wishes that none would perish, may you have eyes to see and ears to hear His Truth. WOE!!! To the Shepherds and people that call themselves Christian, that do what is right in their own eyes.

“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” John 8:12
“For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” 2 Corinthians 4:6
“This is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.” John 3:19

Light is Truth, darkness is a lie, and so we have a battle between the Truth and a Lie, the light and darkness, the good and the evil***many Shepherds need our prayers as Satan wishes to destroy them so that he can scatter the sheep. Bishop Fulton Sheen has told us that it is our obligation as the lay, to speak to the clergy if they are not doing what Jesus would do as taught in HIS bride.

Understand, knowing the Truth is important for you? Understand, your actions make a difference? We are at WAR for the lives and souls of the children, and no matter what rhetoric is used to distract you to other compassionate issues, if we do not address these things first, we dishonor God and He will never bless us or our nation.

Rev. Charles Finney said it this way, “If there is a decay of conscience, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the public press lacks moral discernment, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the church is denigrate and worldly, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the world loses its interest in Christianity, the pulpit is responsible for it. If Satan rules in our halls of legislation, the pulpit is responsible for it. If our politics become so corrupt that the very foundations of our government are ready to fall, the pulpit is responsible for it.”

Shepherds do not love you if they do not tell you the Truth of God, just so your feelings would not be hurt, and you ended up in hell for eternity, what kind of love would that be? With love and forgiveness we come following our Teacher, who said, “Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Shepherds must like Jesus did, use HIS commandments as a schoolmaster. They must bear witness to the truth and not care if anyone likes them or not. The Shepherds must expose evil and help their sheep develop a rightly formed conscience, and then if their sheep are not following the commands of Christ, they must correct them and rebuke them if necessary, or they do not love them.

If you are a Shepherd please listen, change, and act with courage, to what Jesus said, “All power is given unto Me in heaven and earth. Go you therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” Matthew 28:18-20

Now, what are you waiting for? To know this, how does it hold that Christians and Shepherds do nothing? You might say, what do you mean, do nothing? We send some money to the missions, we have wonderful committee meetings and festivals, we give food to the local pantry, we help the widows and orphans, and we are involved in all the mercy ministries. By all means, do not neglect these things, yet there are lives and souls perishing, and to know what to do and not do it, is it not said to be a sin by God? As children’s souls are at risk of going to hell for eternity and children are murdered daily, do you think it will be a good idea to hang on to the thought that you will tell Jesus you fed the hungry, clothed the naked, while children went to hell? Will Jesus tell many Shepherds and sleeping Christians because of the Shepherds, to go over with the goats, that He does not know you?

I judge none of your hearts. Jesus has given me a gift to love you, but you must judge yourself, before Jesus does. I do judge out of love, your actions or lack of. Look around you; do you not understand the times at all? Are you willing to hear a prophetic warning, or do you just want your best life now? Do you want the truth, or just to feel good?

Put things in order, seek first HIS kingdom and HIS righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Open your ears and hearts to the following truth.

"It is impossible to further the common good without acknowledging and defending the right to life, upon which all the other inalienable rights of individuals are founded and from which they develop... Only respect for life can be the foundation and guarantee of the most precious and essential goods of society, such as democracy and peace." (John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae 101)
"Laws which authorize and promote abortion and euthanasia are therefore radically opposed not only to the good of the individual but also to the common good; as such they are completely lacking in authentic juridical validity. Disregard for the right to life, precisely because it leads to the killing of the person whom society exists to serve, is what most directly conflicts with the possibility of achieving the common good." (John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae 72)

Prayer should be our first response in any crisis. Don’t wait until things are hopeless. Pray daily for God’s guidance. Our problems are God’s opportunities. Shepherds please lead the sheep in prayer and do it like Jesus. Finish like Jesus, “not my will, but yours be done.” Then get up, like Jesus, and go to the Cross, teaching the sheep to go to the cross with our actions, and not just words. Having a willingness to give our lives for the lives and souls of HIS children is to have life with Christ.

" 'Therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the LORD : As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, because my flock lacks a shepherd and so has been plundered and has become food for all the wild animals, and because my shepherds did not search for my flock but cared for themselves rather than for my flock, therefore, O shepherds, hear the word of the LORD : This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I am against the shepherds and will hold them accountable for my flock. I will remove them from tending the flock so that the shepherds can no longer feed themselves. I will rescue my flock from their mouths, and it will no longer be food for them. Ezekial 34:1-10

Pray for our Shepherds and lift up their arms in the battles that rage, help them to stay in line with the teaching of the Church, edify them, expect them to love you enough to tell you the truth when you are disobedient, and encourage them to stand, lead, and take action against abortion, the homosexual agenda, pornography, government indoctrination in schools, pagan and atheistic influence, and other weightier issues of the day.

As the times become darker and more dangerous, Christians must have hope and confidence, that God has never abandoned His people, and indeed, He never will.

Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ commands us to be ever-watchful for His return, and ever-mindful that we have no lasting place on earth. When we have in our spirit a heavenly orientation, we can have true happiness in this world, recognizing the rewards of heaven have no proportion to the light sacrifices of life. Come Lord Jesus, Come.

Now listen to the wisdom of Solomon, “Whatever you do, do it with all of your might, for there will be no work, or planning, or knowledge, or wisdom, in the grave, where you are going.” Did I mention that you are going to die? What then?
