The Restored Chief Shepherd
The restoration of God’s people, his holy temple, and his sacred name all were not possible without the divine system that he has set up from the beginning. Since God is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works (Psalms 145:17), his nature does not change, neither does he break his covenants (Psalms 89:34). Therefore, since he changes not, (Malachi 3:6) his system does not change. As long as God’s true people existed (The Nation of Yisra’el (Israel), he has placed one Shepherd over them. This Chief leader was responsible for getting God’s revelations, simplifying them, and then giving them to his people. (Deut 29:1,29). In the Old Testament, we can see that Moses was responsible for delivering God’s message to his people. (Ex 3:14). God could have easily talked to the entire Nation, or picked multiple people who were already in Egypt, but this was not his method for delivering his message. When Moses was nearing the end of his time on Earth, God’s divine system did not end. Here is where we can see clearly the function of the Chief leader.
Numbers 27:15-17 (King James Version)
15And Moses spake unto the LORD, saying,
16Let the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a man over the congregation,
17Which may go out before them, and which may go in before them, and which may lead them out, and which may bring them in; that the congregation of the LORD be not as sheep which have no shepherd.
It was Moses prayer, that when he died, God would set “A” man (meaning 1 man) over the congregation of Yisra’el that would lead them. Without this one Chief leader, the nation could not survive. This is universal knowledge and without one leader of any industry, company, association today, an entity could not survive long term. This is why today you see one CEO of a company; One head coach of a soccer team; One Principle of a school.
Numbers 27:18-19 (King James Version)
18And the LORD said unto Moses, Take thee Joshua the son of Nun, a man in whom is the spirit, and lay thine hand upon him;
19And set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the congregation; and give him a charge in their sight.
20And thou shalt put some of thine honour upon him, that all the congregation of the children of Yisra’el (Israel) may be obedient.
Not only is the Shepherd over the flock, but it is a commandment for true Yisra’el to be obedient to this leader, for he speaks the words of God. As hard as it may be for many to believe, God’s word comes from one person on earth, who then trains others to give the same message and spread it throughout the world. (Eccl 12:11). These other prophets, ministers, and teachers (1 Cor. 12:28) cannot be independent of the Church (Yisra’el), the holy temple (Beyth-‘el), the Sacred Name and last but not least, the Chief Shepherd. In other words, if any of these components are missing, God will cease to exist among the people; destroying false Yisra’el, destroying false Beyth-‘els, and ceasing to respond to his sacred name.
Amos 3:14 (New Living Translation)
14 “On the very day I punish Yisra’el (Israel) for its sins, I will destroy the pagan altars at Beyth-‘el (Bethel). The horns of the altar will be cut off and fall to the ground.
13Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the LORD Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth.
14And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so.
15And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?
16And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.
Today, God continues to give his divine mysteries to his Chief leader. All you have to do is ask him, and he will be able to prove the secrets that have been kept hidden from the world. We no longer want to be deceived by religious organizations with the promise that they are the True Church or the restored Church. You will know the Prophet by his revelations concerning the Kingdom of Heaven.
Amos 3:7 (King James Version)
7Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.
One of the Greatest Mysteries, who is the Son of Man?, can only be proven by a true prophet. (Matthew 11:27). The restoration of God’s Church rest on the shoulders of this one true prophet, fulfilling John 10:16:
John 10:16 (King James Version)
16And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd
