It was winter, 23 and Jesus was in the temple courts walking in Solomon's Colonnade. 24 The Jews who were there gathered around him, saying, “How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Messiah, tell us plainly.”25 Jesus answered, “I did tell you, but you do not believe. The works I do in my Father's name testify about me, 26 but you do not believe because you are not my sheep. 27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.""We are about to step into a season of joy. A season of giving. A season of celebrating the birth of our savior. Let us not forget His voice. Let us not forget that we wake up every morning to glorify Him. To praise Him. He listens, He loves, He is a solid rock we can lean on. This is the greatest month of the year, and I am so happy to be preparing my heart for what He is about to speak into me, and I hope you are too."Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/mymorningdevo)

Q4 is always a bit of a strange one because there is this push/pull between “making the most of the end of the year” and also hitting November and thinking “well that's the year done”. Even as the product businesses shout at me that the year is very much not done, I do feel that no matter your business, by the time you get to November there's a sense of “getting through December” and thinking forwards to plans for the next year. This is not a time for starting, it feels, but a time for culminating and looking ahead. So today I thought I'd speak to this a little bit, and give you some ideas to shape your thinking.What I talk about in this episode:The struggles of Q4Changing your perception and considering possibilityHow to parent your big ideasStructuring your vision and plans for the ooziest possible lifeRecognising the ‘sheep trails' in your work

"One of the most assuring passages in the Bible is found in John 10:22. One of the most often asked questions is surrounding one's assurance of their salvation. "Jesus answered them, "I told you, and you do not believe; the works that I do in My Father's name, these testify of Me. But you do not believe because you are not of My sheep. My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand." * Barbara's friend asked her about marrying without a marriage license. Is this appropriate? * Ernest comments on Bob's opening statements concerning assurance of salvation. He asks, "can we leave our salvation?"

Sheep Nations and the Task at Hand Understanding the Kingdom Series | UTK97 Biblical Life TV It is easy in the den of spiritual warfare to lose sight of the Assembly's trust mission. Our mission is to lead nations to the LORD and teach them to walk in His ways. There will be Sheep Nations during the reign of the Son of Perdition, and it is our task to call them into the Kingdom and disciple them to be faithful Kingdom citizens. One day, we will be judged by Almighty God on how trustworthy we remained to our mission in His Kingdom. Dr. Michael Lake is the Senior Pastor of Biblical Life Assembly, the Chancellor and Founder of Biblical Life College and Seminary. He is the author of the best-selling books, The Shinar Directive: Preparing the Way for the Son of Perdition, and The Sheeriyth Imperative: Empowering the Remnant to Overcome the Gates of Hell. Dr. Lake is a popular speaker at national Christian conferences and is a frequent guest on many Christian TV and radio/podcast programs in North America.
G'day, you mob! Get this: A Tattykeel Australian White ram was sold for a world record-breaking $165,000 at the stud's on-property auction at Oberon, NSW. Which makes this the highest price ever paid for a meat breed sheep at an on-property auction! Whiteface ewes have been used in breeding programs for centuries as a good yielding animal that produces excellent lambs. The pure white face color is thought to be a recessive gene and often appears in conjunction with other genes that produce a non-white colored coat. The winning bidders, David and Natalia Ellingsen, SA, are very happy to have secured these world-class breeding animals at such a bargain basement price. Today's episode talks about the sheep industry in Australia, why we don't have many shearers anymore, and the ethics of changing animal genetics to respond to market demands. Improve your listening skills today – listen, play, & pause this episode – and start speaking like a native English speaker!

There are many sad things in this world: death, sickness, and isolation, to name a few. We can all get overwhelmed by this sadness from time to time. When that happens, Psalm 23 can be a source of great comfort. King David, the author of this psalm, begins by stating that because God is our Shepherd, we have everything we need. When we are in difficult times or when people turn against us, we can still have the joy and peace we long for because we can say, “The Lord is my shepherd” (verse 1). David continues in this psalm by describing how God, the Good Shepherd, satisfies our needs and calms our spirits. Sheep feed on green pastures, and once they have been fed, sheep lie down and rest. Sheep are easily frightened by splashing, running water, so they need quiet waters to drink from. Like a good shepherd, God knows what we need, and He guides us. Sheep have a habit of wandering off. They need a shepherd who knows where the good pastures are and where the quiet waters await, who can guide them along the right paths. The sheep know they can trust the wise guidance of the shepherd. “For his name's sake” is God's seal, His guarantee (verse 3). If you've put your trust in Jesus (who is God the Son), you have a loving Shepherd who has promised not only to lead and guide you but also to lay down His life for you (John 10:11). In verse 4, David writes about a sense of deep, impenetrable darkness. Sorrow or hurt could be your area of darkness. This psalm reassures us that, even in these places, our Good Shepherd is with us, protecting us. And, in verses 5 and 6, we see that we will celebrate our incredible blessings with Him, forever. When we are overwhelmed by the sadness in this broken world, we can take comfort in knowing that, through Jesus's death and resurrection, our Good Shepherd has overcome all the sad things in this life, and He will one day stomp them beneath His feet. • Doug Velting • In what areas of your life are you experiencing sadness right now? • God cares about our physical needs, and He also cares about our spiritual needs. Jesus, as the bread of life and the source of living water (John 6:25-59; 7:37-39), provides us with refreshment in times of sadness. How might God be inviting you into His refreshment today? The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. Psalms 23:1 (NIV)
Matthew 9:35-38Jesus looks around at the crowds in every village and town to which He travels. He sees all kinds of people from various backgrounds. He sees them all as sheep without a shepherd. Andrew and Edwin look into the Old Testament background for this concept to help us understand what Jesus is seeing and what it means for us.Read the written devo that goes along with this episode by clicking here.
