We're ALL the Flock of His Pasture!
« on: August 27, 2009, 10:22:08 AM »
Psalm 100

 1A Psalm of Thanksgiving. Shout to Jehovah, all the earth.

 2Serve Jehovah with joy, come before him with singing.

 3Know that Jehovah He [is] God, He made us, and we are His, His people -- and the flock of His pasture.

 4Enter ye His gates with thanksgiving, His courts with praise, Give ye thanks to Him, bless ye His Name.

 5For good [is] Jehovah, to the age His kindness, And to generation and generation His faithfulness!

Most Christians would say we aren't all God's flock. But it seems he would beg to differ. (And God goes after ALL of his flock!)

Some of us just don't know it yet :o) We act like goats, and sometimes need a little fire to remind us what a shepherd is.

Amen Tim!
He leaves the 99 to go after the one who is lost...
He is the saviour of ALL.
We are ALL His children.
Not one will be lost.

He IS the Good Shepherd.
:thumbsup:  :HeartThrob:
"I knelt to drink,
And knew that I was on the brink
Of endless joy. And everywhere
I turned I saw a wonder there."

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.

Good point, Tim, using scripture. 

Interesting little thing.  I thought about your post, thinking there are other scriptures that may at least SEEM to indicate otherwise.  That many are not sheep of His pasture UNTIL they're saved.  Honest question - aren't there some scriptures, Paul maybe, that talk about being strangers, at enmity with God, etc?  Maybe that could mean disobedient children/not as yet gathered in, etc., rather than that they're not God's children to begin with :dontknow:.  Anyway, the "interesting little thing" I thought you'd appreciate is, I thought of the scripture "why does the HEATHEN rage...".  That's the way I'd heard it all my life.  Did a little search, and the KJV (which I was raised on) does in fact translate it that way.  HOWEVER, several others, including the literal Young's says it very intererstingly this way; 

Why have nations tumultuously assembled? And do peoples meditate vanity?  Ps 2:1

and the NAS this way;

Why are the nations in an uproar And the peoples devising a vain thing?  Ps. 2:1

No heathens mentioned there.  Interesting.  Again, good find  :thumbsup:.

Neither should there be vulgar speech, foolish talk, or coarse jesting--all of which are out of character--but rather thanksgiving.  Eph. 5:4  **  Saved 1John 3.2, Eph. 2:8, John 1:12 - Being saved 2Cor. 4:16 2Peter 3:18 - Will be saved 1Peter 1:5 Romans 8:23
