John 10:7-11

Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

The ministry of the seventh church age Messenger was to first turn the hearts of the children back to the faith of the Pentecostal fathers, and second, by the finishing of the mysteries of the seven seals reveal to the Bride who she is and tell her of her redemption story. The Messenger was to show us that Christ is the mystery of God revealed to us. As Bro. Branham preached throughout his ministry, it became clear he did not point anyone to himself, but pointed us to the person and living God, the Lord Jesus Christ.

It is not a mere association we have with a community of Believers, a set of rules and regulations that we comply with, or a doctrine we hold to, but the person of the Lord Jesus Christ that we serve. This is the Message. He is the Good Shepherd and the reason we can be washed and cleansed from our sin and be redeemed back to Christ. Through the ministry of Malachi 4:5-6 and Revelations 10:7 in our day we have arrived after 2000 years of church ages, the Bride of Jesus Christ. It’s not an association that makes it that way, it was the Good Shepherd leading His sheep all the way.

As His Bride we must be led and be under His watchful eye and guidance. Sheep must be led and who better to be led by than the One who made us, knows us, and loves us. Who better to be led by through this life than the One who not only died as the sacrifice for our sins, but who broke the chains of death and rose again to be a living God to His Bride.

He is the same living person as He was back then. Let us develop a relationship and strive to know the person of Jesus Christ for ourselves. He is the Good Shepherd that will lead you to still waters and green pastures. His way is life; although His way is very hard at times, it leads us to life.

The Shepherd knows just what is best for His sheep. Watch what you are being led by; let Jesus Christ be your Shepherd.

65-1031A - "Leadership"

24 We have to be led. You know, God likened us unto sheep. And did you know a sheep can't lead itself? He'll wander away and stray away, and he—he just can't lead himself. And he has to have somebody to lead him. And sometime… The shepherd is supposed to lead the sheep. Now that was back in the days of the Lord Jesus, He was the good Shepherd that led the sheep.

25 But today, you see, we're living in another day, everything is changed and perverted. You know what man has to lead sheep today? A goat. And you know where that goat leads them? Right into the slaughter. Them little sheep don't know where they're going, so the goat goes up a—a pen, up at the slaughter, and the sheep don't know no more than to follow a leader, so it leads them right up into this slaughter. And then the goat jumps over the track, and the sheep goes in and gets killed. See, the goat, a wrong leader.

26 But Jesus, the good Shepherd Who led the sheep, He led them to Life and held their hand. See, but somebody has to lead the sheep.
