Jesus, Your Good Shepherd And Door   Leave a comment

Good morning all. I received this devotional email this morning. When I woke up this morning and started praying, I started being attacked by our enemy, satan. The devil was trying to get me doubt me and my family’s protection. But while praying I had a thought come in my heart about how the Lord God is going to send me a Word concerning protection. Everything I go through He ALWAYS send me a Word to help me resist the enemy. He loves us all and does it for us all. Some hear and receive and some don’t. I pray you all do receive and believe you are covered in the Blood of Jesus. We are covered because we believe in Jesus; not because of anything we’ve done. It’s because of what Jesus did. He is the one who restored us back to God. When we received Jesus as Lord and believe in Him as Romans 10:9 says, we are His. Sadly, so many think it’s because of what they do for Him or their titles or what they gave. I used to think that way. The Bible says His death took away our curses. We are under a new covenant ONLY because of Jesus Christ. We are ONLY blessed, saved, protected, etc., because of JESUS CHRIST, God’s Son and our Savior. The Savior of the world. He is the ONLY door, the ONLY way to our protection, provision. If we don’t have it, it’s because we believe wrong. If we believe it’s because of our titles, monies, positions, performance/works, then we are putting our trust in those things and not Jesus Christ. Believe you are ONLY protected because of what He did. Peace and blessings.

Jesus, Your Good Shepherd And Door – Joseph Prince Ministries

John 10:7; Then Jesus said to them again, “Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.

Jesus said that He is the “door of the sheep”. What did He mean? Well, a sheepfold during Jesus’ time had no door which could be opened and closed. The door of the sheepfold was just an opening. In this kind of sheepfold, after the sheep had entered it, the shepherd would sleep at the entrance. The shepherd became, effectively, the “door” of the sheepfold.

When Jesus told His disciples, “I am the good shepherd,” (John 10:11) He also assured them emphatically that He was the “door of the sheep”. He was telling them and us, “Inside My sheepfold, My sheep are always safe, completely protected and kept close under My watchful eyes. And since I am just at the entrance of the sheepfold, nothing, not even the muffled bleat of one of My own, can escape My ears. Also, nothing evil outside the sheepfold can enter and touch My sheep without first coming through Me for I am the door of My sheep.”

So when the fight of life comes knocking on your door and when panic threatens to rise within you, see yourself doubly protected! He is both the good shepherd and the door of His sheep. As your good shepherd, He gave His life for you to redeem you from poverty, sickness and every other curse.

As your door, He keeps out everything evil that He has redeemed you from. Because He shed His blood for you, you are covered and protected within the sheepfold by a blood-stained door. Disaster, destruction and death must pass over you and your family because of His blood on your door. Remember that on the night of the first Passover in Egypt, the destroyer could not enter the houses of the Israelites because of the blood of the lamb on their doors. (Exodus 12:13, 23)

Today, you can live life untroubled and unafraid, knowing that Jesus, your good shepherd and door, protects and preserves you and your family. No evil will befall you or your loved ones because He is your dwelling place and refuge!
