7/23/11 From The Lord, Our God and Savior ­- A Parable Given to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

The Kingdom of Heaven is like a great landowner who had a large field full of many sheep, sheep of every kind and many young lambs. The landowner loved his sheep and treasured his young lambs.
Yet in his field he noticed that many sheep had become ill due to disease, and others had wandered off. Behold, many wolves were there also, stealing his sheep and killing his lambs. Therefore, he sent his chief shepherd into the field, to call to his sheep and to every lamb, to gather them together. He was told to wait as long as possible, that every sheep who had wandered off might have a chance to hear his call and return.
The shepherd waited patiently, until all who were able heard his call and gathered to him. And at the time appointed, the shepherd took them out of the field, setting them in safety, apart from all that offends. Then the landowner came forth from his house, in great anger and haste, and slew every ravaging wolf and burned the field with fire, purging it of all disease.

Therefore, let those who have ears to hear, hear and also understand:
The Chief Shepherd is sent into the field already,
And shall also come to finish His work;
Lo, He has entered the field and gathers them together...

Yet the sheep do not depart,
Until The Shepherd calls them through the gate...

Then will they be gone from this place.
