THE GOOD SHEPHERD WATCHES OVER HIS SHEEP…


The GOOD SHEPARD

Yeshua Ha’Mashiach

His name in English is: Jesus, the Christ—Anointed One (Messiah)…

and He watches over His sheep!!!

Are you facing struggles in your life?

Read on…

Concentrate on this sentence:

“To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did”

When God takes something from your grasp, He’s not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better.

Concentrate on this sentence:

“The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.” Something good will happen to you today, something that you have been waiting for.

Say this prayer:

God our Father, walk through my house and take away all my worries and illnesses and please watch over and heal my family – in Jesus name, Amen.

PASS IT ON

If you have yet to make that decision for Christ watch this video:

For those who have yet to accept Yeshua as Messiah, Lord, and Savior, and are looking for evidence that demands a verdict as to who he is, read on:

Fulfilled Prophecy as Evidence for the Bible’s Divine Origin

  • 2,000 prophecies including some 300 prophecies and implications about the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus.
  • There are no prophetic failures.
  • While there are both obvious and subtle prophecies, most are very detailed and specific.
  • No other religion has specific, repeated, and unfailing fulfillment of predictions many years in advance of contingent events over which the predictor had no control.
  • Studies of psychics show only around 8% of their predictions come true and virtually all of these can be attributed to chance and a general knowledge of circumstances.
  • Mathematicians have calculated the odds of Jesus fulfilling only 8 of the Messianic prophecies as 1 out of 1017 (a 1 followed by 17 zeros). This is equivalent to covering the entire state of Texas with silver dollars 2 feet deep, marking one of them, mixing them all up and having a blind-folded person select the marked one at random the first time. For more on this, see What Are The Odds?
  • Fulfilled prophecy is powerful evidence that the Bible is divine rather than human in origin.
  • Objection: Jesus manipulated events to fulfill prophecy. Answer: (a) Many prophecies were out of his control (ancestry, place of birth, time of death). (b) His miracles confirmed Jesus to be the Messiah. (c) There is no evidence that Jesus was a deceiver. (d) In order to manipulate all the people (including his enemies) and even his disciples to make it appear that he was the Messiah, Jesus would have needed supernatural powers. If he had such powers, he must have been the Messiah he claimed to be.
