SHEEP among wolves


 JESUS warned us:

Matthew 7:15

King James Version

15 Beware of false prophets, 

which come to you in sheep's clothing, 

but inwardly they are ravening wolves.


With the way the world is steeped in darkness, you can well believe wolves outnumber sheep, thus, we call this post "sheep among wolves".

JESUS warned us about wolves in sheep's clothing.

The LORD knows who are His.

Matthew 10:16

King James Version

16 Behold, 

I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: 

be ye therefore wise as serpents, 

and harmless as doves.


John 10:27-28

King James Version

27 My sheep hear my voice, 

and I know them, 

and they follow me:

28 And I give unto them eternal life; 

and they shall never perish, 

neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.


Here's how to know the sheep, from the wolves.

The sheep follow JESUS.

Much as we are mocked by the world, we don't follow blindly.

We follow the LIGHT, and never walk in darkness.

John 8:12

King James Version

12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, 

saying, 

I am the light of the world: 

he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, 

but shall have the light of life.


Born agains abide by what JESUS commanded us:

Matthew 22:37-40

King James Version

37 Jesus said unto him, 

Thou shalt love the Lord thy God 

with all thy heart, 

and with all thy soul, 

and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, 

Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang 

all the law and the prophets.


Mark 1:15

King James Version

15 And saying, 

The time is fulfilled, 

and the kingdom of God is at hand: 

repent ye, 

and believe the gospel.


Luke 16:15

King James Version

15 And he said unto them, 

Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; 

but God knoweth your hearts: 

for that which is highly esteemed among men 

is abomination in the sight of God.


John 3:3-7

King James Version

3 Jesus answered and said unto him, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born again, 

he cannot see the kingdom of God.

4 Nicodemus saith unto him, 

How can a man be born when he is old? 

can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, 

and be born?

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; 

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, 

Ye must be born again.


John 3:16-21

King James Version

16 For God so loved the world, 

that he gave his only begotten Son, 

that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, 

but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world 

to condemn the world; 

but that the world through him might be saved.

18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: 

but he that believeth not is condemned already, 

because he hath not believed in the name 

of the only begotten Son of God.

19 And this is the condemnation, 

that light is come into the world, 

and men loved darkness rather than light, 

because their deeds were evil.

20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, 

neither cometh to the light, 

lest his deeds should be reproved.

21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, 

that his deeds may be made manifest, 

that they are wrought in God.


John 14:15

King James Version

15 If ye love me, 

keep my commandments.


The Bible was very clear Who we must FOCUS on:

Colossians 3:1-2

King James Version

3 If ye then be risen with Christ, 

seek those things which are above, 

where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

2 Set your affection on things above, 

not on things on the earth.


As born again, living by the Bible, loving the LORD, studying what I may share with you, I know what to focus on.

JESUS, and JESUS alone.

There is nothing else but JESUS.

Matthew 24:35

King James Version

35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, 

but my words shall not pass away.


He is the WORD, made manifest.

John 1:14

King James Version

14 And the Word was made flesh, 

and dwelt among us, 

(and we beheld his glory, 

the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) 

full of grace and truth.
