THE SHEPHERD AND THE KING.
“Good morning world.. What comes to your mind when I use the words shepherds, and king! And thinking about many things. As the Divine CHRIST-mas journey that STARTED everything began. Let’s talk some more about THE STAR, the SHEPHERDS, and the WISE MEN! Next listening to the Bible TRUTH THAT SAVED US ALL. Let’s also chat about THE KING….. WHO HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH EVERYTHING! And REPEATING THE FACT THAT THE BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST DID…. AND STILL HAS SAVED You Soul from Dying! As EVERYTHING was just beginning! In that SEEKING clue….while I have been writing about the HEAVENLY JOURNEY that has led us to THE STAR too. FROM NEAR AND AFAR let’s keep thinking about THE STAR OF IT ALL! So, in review while going back to the start. As the STAR OF JESUS first appeared! By FOLLOWING THE STAR. Let’s think about how all of that TRUTH has anything to do with YOUR SOUL also HEART! So going back to the START! While going on THE JOURNEY OF LOVE as we too KEEP FOLLOWING THE STAR ABOVE! When the JOURNEY TO FIND HEAVEN’S KING STARTED! We all know that the WISE Men were some of the first people… to see THE HOLY STARS GUIDING LIGHT shining from near and afar through the night! So, knowing that the BIBLE prophecy STATED….. “That THE SAVIOR OF THE WORLD WOULD SOON BE BORN.” While listening to the HEAVENLY call. WANTING TO SAVE THEIR SOULS FROM DEATH’S FINAL FALL….We know on a WILD, BUMPY, HARD trip over the desert while FOLLOWING THE STAR THAT THE 3 WISE Men, set out to find the KING WHO WOULD BE THE SAVIOR OF US ALL! But WAIT! That was just one part of the CHRIST-mas JOURNEY OF LOVE THAT HAS OVER THE AGES LED US ALL TO ANSWER SALVATIONS CALL ON EARTH AND ABOVE! Because ON THE JOURNEY OF LOVE THAT WOULD TAKE ONE AND ALL TO THE CRADLE, CROSS, AND BEYOND lot more things were occurring that WE NEED TO SEE and FOLLOW! That means, Other than what was happening with the WISE MEN! A lot more FASCINATING things were going on during that HOLY SILENT EVENING when JESUS CHRIST WAS BORN on CHRIST-mas Night! So IN REVIEW first THERE WAS THE JOURNEY OF LOVE THAT HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH ME AND YOU! And in that JOURNEY as Mary and Joseph responded to an EARTHLY CALL for an imperial population census that would take them back to the place where their ancestors originated. By taking the JOURNEY OF LOVE over the miles Mary BROUGHT TO LIFE THE HOLY CHILD. Bottom line, going to BETHLEHEM, Mary and Joseph fulfilled the first part of BIBLE’S SALVATION PROMISED PROPHECY. Next as the BIRTH DAY CELEBRATION STARTED there was also THE STAR! AND THIS WAS NO ORDINARY STAR. Because the Star THAT RESTED OVER THE MANGER THAT MARKED THE PLACE AND DATE WHERE THE STAR AND THE KING OF KINGS WAS BORN. COULD BE SEEN ALL OVER THE WORLD! That means, there was NO WAY THAT ANYBODY AWAKE COULD MISS SEEING THE BRIGHT GUIDING LIGHT OF the Star or THE STAR! That’s why, as the WISE MEN SAW THE STAR’S Star that FILLED THE NIGHT WITH ITS GUIDIING LIGHT. It was also RIGHT that in the fields close by on the SAME NIGHT, that THE SHEPHERDS OF BETHELEM ALSO SAW THE SAME BRIGHT GUIDING LIGHT! And all of that was a very nice part of the HEAVENLY PROPHECY! But WAIT….STOPPING FOR A BIT….. WHILE TAKING THE JOURNEY WITH THEM! TO FIND OUT WHAT ANY OF THE ABOVE HAS TO DO WITH YOUR LIFE! LET’S THINK A MOMENT ABOUT…. WHY….. THE ABOVE GUIDING LIGHT TRUTHS WILL ALWAYS BE IMPROTANT TO WHERE YOU NEED TO BE GOING! So, to understand WHY…. ALL OF THE ABOVE WAS SO IMPORTANT for the WISE men to FOLLOW THE STAR. And to also know why it was so extremely IMPORTANT for the SHEPHERDS to also be called! ADDITIONALLY TO KNOW WHY…. ALL OF THE ABOVE….. WILL ALWAYS BE SO IMPORTANT TO EVERY-BODY’S JOURNEY OF LOVE! TO MAKE SURE YOUR SOUL FOLLOWS THE STAR TO HEAVENS HOME TOO! In those BIBICAL TRUTHS….You first need to know.....What ALL OF THE ABOVE MEANS TO YOU! That means, TO UNDERSTAND THE WHOLE STORY. You NEED TO KNOW WHO THE STAR OF YOUR HEART IS. Also WHO IS THE SAVIOR OF YOUR SOUL too! And to get you WHERE YOU WANT TO GO! YOU likewise need to know how a Wise Man, Shepherds, a Star, THE STAR, and THE KING OF EVERYTHING can help YOU GO OVER THE RAINBOW! So, going to the dictionary one more time, to make sure that you know how the ABOVE JOURNEY OF LOVE has to do with your LIFE! First before you Go! You need to know that the word JOURNEY means, a trip that will take you to places unknown. And you also need to know that a JOURNEY will take you HOME! Next you need to know that the word WISE means having the correct information in life. Likewise, the word WISE refers to knowing what the TRUTH is while seeing through the lies! And finally you need to know that….. WISE means being SMART all of the time! Additionally SHEPHERD means…. A person who Protects, Guides, and Watches over something, or some Body, while keeping a Group SAFE from HARM or keeping ONE person Secure from all alarm. Also a Shepherd makes sure that the ones or one who are Daily guarded stay Protected! Next a STAR is a guiding light that illuminates the night as it likewise marks time. So, as you can SEE ALL OF THE ABOVE will always be VERY IMPORTANT TO WHERE YOUR SOUL WILL BE GOING! That’s why, in the reference to THE FIRST CHRIST-mas, the WISE men showed us by FOLLOWING THE STAR LEADING TO THE SAVIOR OF THE WORLD. That they WISELY knew the TRUTH ABOUT FINDING PARADISE! AND IN THE FIELDS CLOSE BY… THE SHEPHERDS LIKEWISE PROVED THEY TOO KNEW THAT JESUS CHRIST… WAS THE SON OF GOD…. ALSO KNOWN AS LOVES FIRST LIGHT, HAD JUST BEEN BORN ON THAT HOLY NIGHT! AND BEING WISE…. THE SHEPHERDS LIKEWISE REALIZED THAT THE KING OF THE WORLD HAD JUST BEEN BORN UNDERNEATH the star THAT WAS LIGHTING UP THE WORLDS NIGHT! That’s why, with all of these HEAVENLY things ALREADY PROPHESIED in the BIBLE! Having all the RIGHT INFORMATION that they needed to FIND THEIR SAVIOR. BEING VERY WISE… ALSO SMART…THE WISE MEN HAD ALREADY STARTED FOLLOWING THE GUIDING LIGHT TO FIND THE STAR OF THE WORLD NAMED JESUS CHRIST! AND AT THE SAME TIME, AFTER SEEING THE SAME GIGANTIC WORLD WIDE STAR RISE IN THE NIGHT SKY. While going on the identical LOVING JOURNEY…. the WISE SHEPHERDS WHO WERE THEIR OWN KIND OF WISE MEN were FOLLOWING THE SAME STAR on that HOLY night to Bethlehem. And that was also Prophesied! Because, as the SHEPHERDS ALSO SAW THE LIGHT! In that LIFE SAVING INSIGHT The SHEPHERDS were watching over their sheep during the dark of the Night. And as the SHEPHERDS ALSO SAW THE LIGHT THAT WOULD SAVE THEIR LIFE! The BIBLE TELL US that ALL OF THESE WISE MEN started their JOURNEY OF LOVE TO FIND THE STAR! And The Bible also says, at the same time, while the WISE MEN started their JOURNEY THAT WOULD LEAD THEM TO THE STAR, AND THAT WOULD TAKE THEM HOME.THERE WAS A LOT MORE TO THE CHRIST-mas STORY! That means, keeping their sheep protecting them from the EVIL People. While also guarding the sheep from MEAN Hungry wolves! The SHEPHERDS who were ALSO LOOKING AT THE STAR. While safely watching their fluffy family dream and sleep. Being the ones making sure that the EVIL People and MEAN hungry wolfs would not steal or eat their sheep. While keeping their Bleating GROUP ALIVE so their animals would keep breathing. The SHEPHERDS WERE NOT SLEEPING! And that’s a good thing! Because the job of a SHEPHERD, will always be to make sure that the sheep in their flocks keep, were not robbed, or eaten! That's why, the SHEPHERDS were wide Awake.... Because the Guardians of the Flock need to make sure, that if those in their keep would wake up, that none of the sheep would stray away.... So, being SAFELY GUARDED by the SHEPHERDS night and day.... THE SHEEP COULD PEACEFULLY SLEEP! BECAUSE THE SHEEP REALIZED THAT EVEN IF THEY WOKE UP, and ACCIDENTALLY STRAYED AWAY THAT THE SHEPHERDS WOULD FIND THEM. AND BRINGING THE SHEEP BACK SAFELY INTO THE GROUP. THE SHEEP WOULD NOT DIE AFTER THEY ROAMED AWAY. THAT’S WHY, THE BIBLE PICKED THE SHEPHERDS TO BE THE FIRST GUESTS TO SEE THE HOLY BABY. BECAUSE FOR THINGS TO MAKE SENSE TO THOSE OF US WHO WOULD ALSO ONE DAY OR NIGHT FOLLOW THE STAR. THE BIBLE WANTED US ALL TO KNOW THAT JESUS CHRIST WOULD BE THE SHEPHERD OF THE WORLD WHO WOULD ALWAYS KEEP OUR SOUL SAFE FROM HARM! So, KNOWING THAT JESUS CHRIST WOULD FOREVER KEEP US SAFE IN OUR LIFE! GOD OUR FATHER used the LOWLY MANGER TO SHOW US JESUS CHRIST CAME FOR RICH AND POOR. And in the same way by USING THE POOR SHEPHERDS TO SHOW US HOW TO FOLLOW THE GUIDING LIGHT TO JESUS CHRIST WE ALL KNOW NO MATTER HOW LOST WE ARE WE CAN ALL FIND THE LIGHT BY FOLLOWING THE STAR! That’s why as the WISE MEN started their journey….. Being wide awake IN KEEP OF THE NIGHT….. In that common Guarding, Protective, Watchful, and Loving Fellowship the BRAVE, STRONG SHEPHERDS were the first ones that THE ANGELS appeared to.... when the STAR OF THE WORD FIRST ROSE AND SHONE OVER BETHLEHEM’S SKY. That’s likewise WHY…On that HOLY night when JESUS CHRIST was born.... by FOLLOWING the Star.... to THE STAR OF THE WORLD... That the SHEPHERDS were the first ones to arrive at the Birthday Party's CELEBRATION. That means, the SHEPHERDS were the FIRST ONES to come with Presents in hand AS in that Grand Plan THEY PREPARED TO WORSHIP THE KING OF MAN! Additionally, the SHEPHERDS were also the first ones TO BOW THEIR HEADS, AND TO BEND THEIR KNEES WHEN THEY SAW THE HOLY BABY WHO WILL ALWAYS BE THE KING OF KINGS!.... Additionally the SHEPHERDS were the first ones to bring Gifts, as they worshiped OUR NEW BORN SAVIOR! So knowing all of that to be TRUE! I think it is an awesome occurrence too.... that GOD picked the SHEPHERDS … To WELCOME THE SHEPHERD OF OUR SOUL TO EARTHS HOME! AND AS THE SHEPHERDS SHOWED US THAT JESUS CHRIST WOULD ALWAYS GUIDE US! AND AS THE SHEPHERDS SHOWED US THAT JESUS CHRIST WOULD ALWAYS PROTECT US! AND AS THE SHEPHERDS SHOWED US THAT JESUS CHRIST WOULD ALWAYS WATCH OVER US! AND AS THE SHEPHERDS SHOWED US THAT JESUS CHRIST WOULD ALWAYS LOVE US AND SAVE US. You will SEE that taking THE JOURNEY OF LOVE with me, while ALWAYS KNOWING HOW IMPORTANT THE SHEPHERDS will BE TO OUR SOUL..... Likewise KNOWING HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO BE WISE! While Equally realizing how IMPORTANT IT WILL ALWAYS BE FOR YOUR SOUL TO SEE THE LIGHT! You too will KNOW that JESUS CHRIST WAS SENT THEN, AND NOW, TO GUARD, GUIDE, WATCH, PROTECT US, and keep OUR SOUL SAFE, also WHOLE! So, Knowing that JESUS CHRIST WAS THEN. AND JESUS CHRIST IS NOW. JUST AS JESUS CHRIST WILL ETERNALLY BE THE SHEPHERD OF OUR LIFE WHO WILL ONE DAY OR NIGHT TAKE US OVER THE RAINBOW TO PARADISE FOR ALL ETERNITY... That DIVINE HOME BOUND GOAL connected to THE GIFT OF CHRIST-mas and THE PRESENT OF TIME will always be clear for everybody to know day and night.... Because realizing that JESUS CHRIST is RIGHT NOW THE SHEPHERD, PROTECTOR, GUARDIAN, AND LIGHT OF OUR SOUL! The Good News will always be! That WE….. WHO HAVE ACCEPTED THE SALVATION GIFT OF LOVE FROM ABOVE WILL ONE DAY BE FOLLOWING JESUS CHRIST HOME… WHILE GOING OVER THE RAINBOW to HEAVENS FREEDOM...... THAT MEANS, WE WILL ETERNALLY BE.... THE HAPPY PROTECTED SHEEP IN HEAVEN!…. AND BEING SAVED FROM EVIL, SATAN, AND THE DEMONS. THAT MEANS, WE WILL FOREVERMORE BE GAURDED BY JESUS CHRIST IN OUR SAFE KEEPING ON EARTH and throughout ETERNITY! Bottom line,....WITH JESUS CHRIST keeping us SAFE from THE EVIL WOLF CALLED SATAN who wants to PAINFULLY DEVOUR OUR SOUL. AS JESUS ADDITIONALLY Keeps us safe from THE SOUL ROBBING MEAN WITCHES, and DEMONS who are trying to destroy your EVERYTHING! BEFORE YOU GO BELOW! EVERYBODY NEEDS TO SEE THAT JESUS CHRIST IS NOW and JESUS CHRIST WILL ETERNALLY BE…. THE ONLY Protective, Guiding, SHEPHERD.... WISELY ALSO KNOWN AS THE KING OF KINGS…. LOOKING OVER YOU AND ME! AND BEING WISE EVERYBODY WILL ALSO REALIZE THAT OUR GUIDING LIGHT SHEPHERD JESUS CHRIST…. WILL ALWAYS BE THE STAR, SHEPHERD, AND THE KING OF KINGS, SAFELY WATCHING OVER YOU AND ME….
