One thing I treasure is my attempt to understand the Lord and His ways. He is extremely accurate in His promises to bless us, and we are now entering into a season of His great blessing. As Scripture says, “His lord said unto him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.’”
It is clear in the Bible: non-shepherds find it difficult to distinguish between sheep and goats, but the shepherd knows the difference and easily separates them. There are differences in behavior: sheep tend to follow, while goats go their own way. At the Last Judgment the Great Shepherd (“Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you perfect in every good work to do His will, working in you that which is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen”) will know the difference and will separate those who followed Him (Matt. “And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after Me, is not worthy of Me. He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for My sake shall find it”) from those who went their own way.
The prophets saw the Lord bringing down a gavel of judgment, part of which will be the separation of the goats to His left and the sheep to His right. This is an ancient Biblical truth that is going to be displayed in our nation. As all of you know who pray with us on Periscope, we pray daily, “Lord, not my will but Thy will be done.” Little did I know when we began this prayer and supplication that this is an important point of God’s determination of our thoughts and intentions whether we are sheep or goats.
On November 6, for America, for California and the election, let us pray for God’s will to be done. On this date, my family will be praying at a special prophetic place. Enjoy this season of His great blessing. We hope to see you with us on Periscope!
Sent in love,
