“Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the Door of the sheep. 8 All that ever came before Me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. 9 I am the door: by Me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. 11 I am the good Shepherd: the Good Shepherd gives His life for the sheep.
12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, sees the wolf coming, and leaves the sheep, and flees: and the wolf catches them, and scatters the sheep. 13 The hireling flees, because he is an hireling, and cares not for the sheep.
14 I am the Good Shepherd, and know My sheep, and am known of Mine.” John 10:7-14.
The church is not the door to Jesus Christ but He is the Door to His church. Those who have entered the Church of Jesus Christ know His voice and will not follow a hireling. The hirelings have diluted the Gospel of Jesus to attract the world to the one world church. They have come to kill, steal and destroy sheep who do not know the voice of the Lord and do not keep His Word, the false sheep who follow false shepherds. The schemes of man and traditions of their religion are presented as the door to the Church of Jesus Christ, instead of Jesus Christ being lifted up as the Door to His Church.
Pray, discern, look and listen…whose voice do you hear? Is it the voice of a hireling or the Voice of the Good Shepherd, Jesus Christ? The hireling will present another door other than faith in Jesus and His finished work for victory over sin’s dominion. The traditions, ceremonies, feasts and festivals which profit one nothing are presented as righteous to the hireling’s fold.
“For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. 6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision avails any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which works by love. 7 Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth? 8 This persuasion cometh not of Him that called you. 9 A little leaven leavens the whole lump.” Galatians 5:5-9.
This persuasion of traditions comes not from Him that called you, Jesus Christ. Who did hinder you? Was it a hireling? Jesus is the Door to His Church…a particular religion is not the door to Jesus.
