Jesus Christ is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world, but He is also the Good Shepherd, the Pastor of the sheep. The Church has cost Him his life, dying on the Cross in the Passion on His way to Calvary, all because He loves us. We the Church own Him, not just life, eternal life, but a temporary life worthy of such a Great Saviour. Our Christian life and the image that the Church offers depends on every individual Christian, on his level of commitment with his Saviour, who died for him. As Christians, we need to start as little lambs, being fed by elders in the faith, whether personally of by The Bible, since many people give their lives to Christ reading it or reading other Christian writing. But a Christian's life is called to fellowship gathering as sheep in a flock, the Church of Christ.


The Church is made up by a large number of churches, fellowships, whether they may be in impressive buildings or in small homes, or anywhere, even in loneliness inside our souls if we are under extreme persecution; but we all have a level of commitment, duty and responsibility that emanates from the love of God in the Passion of Christ. From lambs, we grow to become sheep who need guidance to lead a Christian life, and finally we must become adult in the faith, and some of us are to lead like Simon, son of Jonas, known as Peter, when the Lord Jesus Christ, resurrected, confronted him with the situation of the Church. Peter had denied the Lord three times, just like we can also fail to the Lord, but the Lord forgives and equips to become a good disciple. Thus, Jesus asks Peter three times whether he loves Him, and whether he is willing to look after His flock. Likewise the Lord, just like He did with Peter, who is a symbol of the disciple, asks the whole Church whether we love Him. If we say yes, we have three responsibilities: towards our neighbour, towards the Church, but especially towards our Saviour who gave His life for us in Easter, as Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world while, until His return, He is our Good Shepherd. Let us be looked after by Him while we answer in our lives to the three following questions.



...So when they had eaten breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me more than these?” He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.” He said to him, “Feed My lambs.” 16 He said to him again a second time, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me?” He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.” He said to him, “Tend My sheep.”17 He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me?” Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, “Do you love Me?” And he said to Him, “Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You.” Jesus said to him, “Feed My sheep. John 21.


In His teachings, the Lord shows us - lambs, sheep and pastors - a true family living and sharing together for a specific commission: the Church as the Kingdom of God on Earth. In the famous Text in the Gospel of John the apostle, Simon son of Jonah, Peter, receives three requests in the love of God, in a brotherly conversation with the Lord, after He resurrected and before He ascended.


When the Greek Text mentions lambs, it uses the diminutive word arnia, so that there is no doubt that it refers to a small animal (in the sense of a beginner, in the faith or humbleness in sacrifice) meaning the young disciples in Christ. When he refers to sheep, it uses probata, adult sheep, although some Texts have translated little sheep for commentaries in reference to little children of John, in his loving ways, not because they are small, as in the case of the lamb, but because of God's love for His People, His Children, His Church, His wife, for whom He gave His live on the Cross in Calvary, according to the prophecy. Thus our Good Shepherd of sheep, became Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. Lamb of God because He is His Son, His little lamb and beloved little Son, who is also King of kings and Lion of Judah, the Messiah for every nation, for every soul of those who open their heart to Him forever.


The ram, the adult male sheep, could be used to make a burnt-offering or thanksgiving offering. A specific sacrifice for a sin could only be done with a ram. Its red-dyed skin was used to cover the Tabernacle and its horns were used as horns of war. Also the battering ram, is linked to the ram.


Christian life as a community is made up of fed lambs, tended sheep and fed sheep. The shepherd, just like the Master of the shepherds, is just a servant of the Good Shepherd of the sheep who shall watch for it to be so, because a good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. The hired hand, like those who are pastors focus their tending, like they did, or not, in the past, though simony, see the wolf coming and they run away, letting the wolf attack and scatter the sheep. John 10:7-17.


When you know Jesus in your heart, you are born again from the Holy Spirit, and thus we are made labs who need to be fed; and the feeding needs to start with the pure spiritual milk of the word of the Gospel and the elementary principles of the faith. It is essential that this period of growth occurs in an environment with spiritual brotherly love and under the specific care of a good pastor who has a good flock of brotherly sheep. Otherwise, the lamb will be poorly nourished, he will be spiritually thirsty, without brotherly and Christian love, and he can become seriously ill, he can even get lost, and those who did not treat him with the Golden Rule will be to blame.


On the other hand, sheep - adult Christian in the faith, who have been in the Way for years, who have gone through different situations, tests of faith, even through more than one congregation, they can also suffer from a lack of clear and caring leadership; they need a clear vision of life in the church where they are, whether it may be a small home group, a medium size church or a mega-church. Love of God is essential to pastor sheep properly, and also to allow ourselves to be 'tended'; order, example and a project for Christian life are also essential. Most destroyed congregations have come to that point because the sheep have spent more time busy and worried about the church's internal issues than in God's work. Of course sheep have their own responsibility. Some of them spent more time worrying about the type of leadership in the church, rumours, comments, criticisms, etc. This is the devil's strategy to destroy churches and Christians. Sheep do not allow being tended when the pastor does not have a clear leadership, a clear program, he allows distress to settle in and does not attend each sheep individually or in groups; but sheep must also make an effort and try to put themselves in the position of the elders and the pastor.


Churches and their sheep, mature Christians, cannot live in the third stage that Jesus asks Peter - being fed - if they spend their time only in dealing with problems in the congregation instead of fulfilling the Great Commission. They cannot be fed spiritual solid food that will make them effective in winning souls and then look after them until they are adults and are able to keep themselves healthy and efficient in faith and God's work. The pastor of a church and the elders who look after and supervise the flock are responsible for making Christian life be a blessings, whether it may be within a family, a established church or a community of friends in Christ and not a life of obligation, fear or distress. Sheep who do not find this, end up leaving the flock. Maybe they will look for another fold, but until they can settle in and feel welcome, useful and loved, and feel that they are serving the Lord, they go through a painful time which can sometimes have irreversible consequences, and the result is isolated Christians, separated from fellowship, without any hope of finding a group or a church that can resemble the first church of the New Testament, but in our specific age and culture.





In the following Text, we will see the consequences of bad leadership in the church, when pastors do not fulfil their duty in the "agape" love, in the love of God in Jesus Christ. Looking at the history of the Church, we also see how the Protestant Reform was the reaction to a form of government in the Church that had deviated of bishops in every church, in every town, until they mixed with  the empire's power, and even go over it until it converted into an only pope, which was the case of Gregory VII with the empire of Henry IV. A reform of spiritual life, from Saint Augustine, through to the monks and the reform in Cluny, would leave a proposal: observe the rule of Saint Benedict (obedience and permanence), but furthermore abbeys would become places where the Bible was studies, influencing the world as much as to see the rise of universities.


At the beginning, many monks used to change abbeys as soon as they were asked to show commitment, and this is why Benedictine created the Rule. Today, just like then, Christians should offer commitment and permanence to their church, but many of them just want to be served and they go form one church to the other, and from one home group to another. In other cases they have tried to make impossible changes and they have to leave. This, which happened back in those times, together with the corruption of popes and simony (selling religious positions), unfortunately resembles what many believers are experiencing in their Christian lives today. The Text in Ezekiel is enlightening:


...And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 2 “Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy and say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord God to the shepherds: “Woe to the shepherds of Israel who feed themselves! Should not the shepherds feed the flocks? 3 You eat the fat and clothe yourselves with the wool; you slaughter the fatlings, but you do not feed the flock. 4 The weak you have not strengthened, nor have you healed those who were sick, nor bound up the broken, nor brought back what was driven away, nor sought what was lost; but with force and cruelty you have ruled them. 5 So they were scattered because there was no shepherd; and they became food for all the beasts of the field when they were scattered. 6 My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and on every high hill; yes, My flock was scattered over the whole face of the earth, and no one was seeking or searching for them.”


The Lord teaches us to feed the flocks. As Christians, eating the fat of faithfulness and dressing with the wool the maturity of the brethren should be reciprocal. The pastor and the elders must provide as well as receive, spiritually and physically, in prayers, in dedication, in mutual help in the world, in life, in whatever can be done for others. The Lord asks us to feed the sheep and we can only do this if the church is in peace, in order, if the spiritual food is solid and comes from the Holy Spirit, in teaching, in relationship and in dedication. It is no good that pastors feed themselves without listening to their congregation or taking others into consideration; the pastor is a servant, like the Master says.


He also exhort A to strengthen the weak ones, to give them brotherly attention until their problems are solved. We need to heal the sick one, the one who sins, who cannot overcome his flesh but he fights for it, the one who wants to serve God but fails. We have to bind up the broken instead of criticizing and condemning, like Christ did with Peter, since this is what we want God to do with us. We have to look for the scattered one until we return it to the flock. These, the scattered ones, are a very valuable source of information to improve the church, and the pastor who spends time doing this, leaving the 99, and bringing the scattered one back on his shoulders, saves a soul and improves his congregation. Maybe they left because they were treated roughly and with violence, without mercy.  If they are astray because they have no pastor, they are in danger, threatened by the beasts of the world, the spiritual enemy, the devil and his fallen angels who are looking for souls for eternal hell. We must go and search for them, ask them, and those brethren who have left must receive in the love of God from a pastor-brother who worries, be humble and give an opportunity to be part of the congregation.


Whoever thinks that they cannot serve this way, ask the Lord for help. If you desire a leading position, the Lord will provide.



7 ‘Therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the Lord: 8 “As I live,” says the Lord God, “surely because My flock became a prey, and My flock became food for every beast of the field, because there was no shepherd, nor did My shepherds search for My flock, but the shepherds fed themselves and did not feed My flock”— 9 therefore, O shepherds, hear the word of the Lord! 10 Thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I am against the shepherds, and I will require My flock at their hand; I will cause them to cease feeding the sheep, and the shepherds shall feed themselves no more; for I will deliver My flock from their mouths, that they may no longer be food for them.”11 ‘For thus says the Lord God: “Indeed I Myself will search for My sheep and seek them out. 12 As a shepherd seeks out his flock on the day he is among his scattered sheep, so will I seek out My sheep and deliver them from all the places where they were scattered on a cloudy and dark day. 13 And I will bring them out from the peoples and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land; I will feed them on the mountains of Israel, in the valleys and in all the inhabited places of the country. 14 I will feed them in good pasture, and their fold shall be on the high mountains of Israel. There they shall lie down in a good fold and feed in rich pasture on the mountains of Israel. 15 I will feed My flock, and I will make them lie down,” says the Lord God. 16 “I will seek what was lost and bring back what was driven away, bind up the broken and strengthen what was sick; but I will destroy the fat and the strong, and feed them in judgment.”


The Lord will look after His sheep until they come together in a good fold, a good church with rich pasture of the Word of God and brotherly love. He will destroy the one He considers to be fat due to selfish feeding and spiritually strong in isolation in their own ego, without humbleness and without serving the Lord and the justice of the Lord will be their food. God does not leave His people, His sheep; but He will claim the souls from those leaders, pastors, elders or bishops who do not love their brethren, as if they were criminals. 1John 3:14-17.


17 ‘And as for you, O My flock, thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I shall judge between sheep and sheep, between rams and goats. 18 Is it too little for you to have eaten up the good pasture, that you must tread down with your feet the residue of your pasture—and to have drunk of the clear waters, that you must foul the residue with your feet? 19 And as for My flock, they eat what you have trampled with your feet, and they drink what you have fouled with your feet.” 20 ‘Therefore thus says the Lord God to them: “Behold, I Myself will judge between the fat and the lean sheep. 21 Because you have pushed with side and shoulder, butted all the weak ones with your horns, and scattered them abroad, 22 therefore I will save My flock, and they shall no longer be a prey; and I will judge between sheep and sheep. 23 I will establish one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them—My servant David. He shall feed them and be their shepherd. 24 And I, the Lord, will be their God, and My servant David a prince among them; I, the Lord, have spoken.

The Lord raises a pastor in each congregation, like He did with David, a leader sent by Him, a good church, while Jesus Christ comes in His Kingdom so that the good Christian lives a Christian life and serves his Lord. Goats butt with their horns but rams can be used to pastor, as they play their horn trumpets, a symbol of preaching and prophesising the Word of God. The evil ones trample with their feet what is left, they do not care to share the good things of the Lord, they keep it for themselves. In the same place we find fat and thin sheep, when they are provided with the same food, this is unacceptable in churches. We must show no partiality for anybody. Because if we tell the one with ragged clothes, the poor one and the uneducated one to stay at the back, separated from the rest, and we bring the wealthy, famous or powerful one and place him in the first position, we are not treating people according to God's measuring rod, but the one of the world and this attitude brings corruption. This will probably remind many of their own experience, but we must never lose our faith and the lambs, or sheep or rams should never give up because he who has a good heart of God will always see the light of God and his life will be prospered.

25 “I will make a covenant of peace with them, and cause wild beasts to cease from the land; and they will dwell safely in the wilderness and sleep in the woods. 26 I will make them and the places all around My hill a blessing; and I will cause showers to come down in their season; there shall be showers of blessing. 27 Then the trees of the field shall yield their fruit, and the earth shall yield her increase. They shall be safe in their land; and they shall know that I am the Lord, when I have broken the bands of their yoke and delivered them from the hand of those who enslaved them. 28 And they shall no longer be a prey for the nations, nor shall beasts of the land devour them; but they shall dwell safely, and no one shall make them afraid. 29 I will raise up for them a garden of renown, and they shall no longer be consumed with hunger in the land, nor bear the shame of the Gentiles anymore. 30 Thus they shall know that I, the Lord their God, am with them, and they, the house of Israel, are My people,” says the Lord God.’ 31 “You are My flock, the flock of My pasture; you are men, and I am your God,” says the Lord God. Ezekiel 34.

Are you a lamb who has suffered malnutrition? The Lord knows and He loves you. He will care for you, feed you and correct your church or take you to a good fold.

Are you a sheep who has suffered being in a fold without order and brethren have gone astray due to the lack of a dedicated pastor, or bishops who fail to look after people first rather than their church as institution? The Lord knows and He loves you. He will care for you, tend you and correct your church or take you to a good fold.

Are you a ram who has failed as an elder, who has not been up to the task, without brethren to turn to, or counsellors to count on, lambs have been disturbed by sheep and they have been fed poorly, sheep have gone astray or they go from church to church and from one home group to another, and they complain about all of them, but your heart is set out to serve God? The Lord knows and He loves you. He will teach you to lead, to take the net and cast it on the right side of the boat, trusting His power, he will provide you with an effective plan and vision, and will strengthen your character, faith and trust in God; once you come to His feet to ask for forgiveness and help. God will correct your church and will make it a good fold. God will give you brethren, elder and more experimented rams, and will turn you into a lamb of God so that you offer yourself in sacrifice everyday to serve the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. 

We can see the fruit of a good church in the two following Psalms.



The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. 3 He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

This is the guide for pastors and the guide for Christians to know what to expect and give in a good ministry and in a good church. The order in the Psalm corresponds with the Text in the Gospel of John 21:15 which we started with. First, feed the lamb in places of green pastures. Second, tend beside the still waters, comforting the soul, leading in paths of righteousness for His name's sake. And finally, feeding the sheep by preparing a table in the presence of the enemies and in the anointment with the oil of anointing of eldership of the mature, with the cup running over. Thus, goodness and mercy shall follow us forever. This is the fruit of a healthy church and the result is also in Psalm 133:

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! 2 It is like the precious oil upon the head, running down on the beard, the beard of Aaron, running down on the edge of his garments. 3 It is like the dew of Hermon, descending upon the mountains of Zion; for there the Lord commanded the blessing— Life forevermore.

This is Christian life together in harmony, a delicious thing from God. Compared to precious oil upon the head, and even the beard of Aaron, symbol of elderly priesthood who in a good pastoral work, lasts till the edge of the garments, the coverage of a church. Blessing and eternal life come from the Father who loves us.

So we have seen the blessing that the Bible shows us; this is what Jesus did during His ministry on earth and His love and compassion for the scattered sheep. The harvest truly is plentiful, but the labourers are few, therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into His harvest.

35 Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. 36 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. 37 Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. 38 Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” Matthew 9.



Finally, the King of kings, the Son of God who was in Heaven with the Father, became flesh and lived among us to become the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. The Master, the Good Shepherd of the sheep, came to teach us how we should live among us and toward our neighbour, because if there ever was one worthy of worship and praise, it is the Lord, and He came to serve. Let us follow His example and imitate Him in Passover, in His attitude in the Passion and until His death, as in the prophecy in Isaiah "YHWH has saved", chapter 53, written around 758 b.C. about the Passion of Christ in full detail, because resurrection and victory would come for the glory of God.

Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? 2 For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, and as a root out of dry ground. He has no form or comeliness; and when we see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him. 3 He is despised and rejected by men, a Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.

The way that our Lord was treated made His face disfigured, covered in blood, swollen by the strikes and blows. Every Christian has confronted in repentance and has been able to receive and esteem Him as Saviour.

Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. 5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, every one, to his own way; and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

He experienced our circumstances, so He know them all. Our iniquities, our sins, punished for our peace, His stripe heals us in the spirit. We are sheep gone astray that need to be tended, not allowed to go our own way.

He was oppressed and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so He opened not His mouth.8 He was taken from prison and from judgment, and who will declare His generation? For He was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgressions of My people He was stricken.9 And they made His grave with the wicked— But with the rich at His death, because He had done no violence, nor was any deceit in His mouth.

Like a Lamb led to the slaughter; what about us, did we not deserve it? and as a sheep that is sheared and the wool is taken away, the Lamb of God had His garments taken away and His tunic, which was without seam, woven from the top in one piece, John 19:23b, and they cast lots,  but He went silent. Sometimes we feel anxious and in sorrow, He did not open His mouth, He commended His cause to the Father to be faithful to His Cross. Prison and judgment. His life here on Earth, every project for life and descendants terminated at 33 years old, because He loved us. Our rebellion hurt Him. He died among merciless people, but He was buried among wealthy ones, of whom He was and is the King. Faithful to death. Let us be like Simon of Cyrene, who carried the cross of Jesus Christ, from whom he learnt the faith.


Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him; He has put Him to grief. When You make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand. 11 He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied. By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many, for He shall bear their iniquities. 12 Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great, and He shall divide the spoil with the strong, because He poured out His soul unto death, and He was numbered with the transgressors, and He bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.


We have to die to ourselves if we want to see spiritual descendants, this is the lesson for pastors, elders or bishops, even fro sheep and little lambs, who are ambassadors of Christ.


Why did Yahweh want to bruise His Son? It was the agreement that Father and Son had come to before the foundation of the world, 1Peter 1:20, because they loved us. The Son would give His life for His Father's children, because he loved the Father and us, and the Father in the grief of His heart seeing His Son dying on the Cross, rejected and under cruel hands, He knew that His Son wanted to do it in His greatness as King of kings, brave lion of Judah, and He consents. His life as atonement for our sin cancels all our merits, every deed, every fulfillment, every effort on our side to achieve our salvation, because that attitude despises the Cross of Christ. We can only be His descendants if we accept His blood as payment for our Sin. The glory is His.

We, the Church, are the fruit of the grief of His soul; how are we not going to love one another and make every effort to be in unity, which was also cause of His death, John 11:52b, and the example of a Christian life when our Shepherd has laid down His life for us?. We owe Him our life, and also unity, the relationship, the deeds and the glory, bearing witness every time and working and praying for our neighbour and brethren. He is The Carpenter, and He teaches us the work of the cross, let us take our cross every day and follow Him!


A brother is a treasure, let us not lose him! Brethren exist due to the Passion of Christ, let us care for the treasures of Christ.


If we are fruit of the labor of His soul, let us satisfy Him, and let us, by His knowledge in the Gospel He may justify many, as we preach, that He may carry the iniquities, because He poured out His soul unto death, and He was numbered with the transgressors, and bore the sin of many, and made intercession praying for the transgressors. Likewise, let us also pray and intercede for the sinners to become little lambs, and lambs to turn into sheep of the Lord, won on the Cross.



Pastors, like Simon son of Jonah, are called to feed the lamb to make them into good disciples, they are called to tend the sheep so that they can serve God, and they are called to feed those sheep so that their lives emanate the love of God, inside and outside the fold of the church; and pastors fulfill all of these calls when they can say yes to Jesus when He asks all the "Peters": ... do you love me more than these? ...

... For love will cover a multitude of sins ... 1Peter 4:8, it is no coincidence that Peter was the one to write this inspired verse. Fathers and mothers love their children, and when they sin, if they are good parents, they do whatever they can to help them and correct them with love. Married couples must forgive each other many times in love, and in love of God. We must forgive and love our neighbour. We must forgive and love little lambs and rams, because we are all the sheep of the Good Shepherd.

Christianity is the ambassador of the fruit of the Passion of Jesus Christ, of the Christmas of Jesus Christ, of Christian life, of the Gospel in the Great Commission. If pastors lay down their lives for the flock and for Jesus Christ, and the flock also lays down their life for the pastors and for Jesus Christ, many little lambs will come to the fold, many sheep will produce good wool and pure spiritual milk, and the Great Commission will be done more efficiently so that the day when the Good Shepherd, the Pastor of the sheep comes He finds us doing all this, like many good Christians and good pastors, and good churches do every day of the year and therefore they will all receive the crown of glory that does not fade away, as we can see in 1Peter 5:

5 The elders who are among you I exhort, I who am a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that will be revealed: 2 Shepherd the flock of God which is among you, serving as overseers, not by compulsion but willingly, not for dishonest gain but eagerly; 3 nor as being lords over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock; 4 and when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that does not fade away. 5 Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for "God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” 6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, 7 casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. 8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 9 Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. 10 But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. 11 To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.

The victory of the Passion in Passover is the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who makes our Christian life possible every day so that, as we see in Matthew 28, continue to fulfill the Great Commission for His glory.

... Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had appointed for them. 17 When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.


  • For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Prophecy of Isaiah 9:6.

  • I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6. Words of Yahshua - Jesus Christ.
  • You want to know God, but you know the way is not through organized religion, nor by sects, nor by society. The world has failed. ...I pray for them;  I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours... John 17:9. Prayer of Yahshua - Jesus Christ.

  • If you really seek God, begin today the new life though the true hand of God. The Gospel is the message for all nations, no matter their race, their origins or culture. God is the saviour of those from humanity who open their hearts to Him.

  • ...Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.  1Corinthians 15:58.
