Joh 10:11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
Joh 10:12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
Joh 10:13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
Joh 10:14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
Joh 10:15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
Joh 10:16 And 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.
Jesus is the Good Shepherd. Shepherds fight with enemies like bears, cougars and wolves. Sometimes they have to kill their enemies, because they are hungry, ravenous and want to hurt the sheep. They forget there is a man around that has sharp implements and can kill them. That he is willing to lay down his life to protect the sheep. But he is not talking about physical enemies of sheep. He wants to give His life by execution to give them something to hold on to and a reason to live- for forgiveness. He drives the wolf off and the wolf could be the devil. We know the devil and how to fight him since we are not ignorant of his devices.
The hired hand is tending the sheeps, he is not invested in them and has no part in the harvest. He doesn’t care about the sheep and is not the owner. Jesus is not talking about sheep but the flock of believers. Jesus and Pastors are called to care and He cares the best. I am the good shepherd He says. People who know Him relate to His goodness and strength, His love and teachings. They know the truth. We all think we know Him and fear. We sometimes stay away from Him when we are guilty and don’t want His conviction.
The Father knows Him and it is enough for Jesus to give His life for the sheep. Their relationship as Father and Son is all Jesus needs to obey the Father. Jesus has been a Son in heaven all along and is the perfect offshoot of their connection.
God didn’t make any other life on any other planet except maybe plant life in my imagination. So I think these UFO sightings are a figment of the devil. I’ve seen some of the pictures. The devil is trying to make a small thing out of the earth and its destruction. He is trying to undermine the importance of this earth. If we go on to other planets it will seem small and far away. If we destroy it and then fight alien wars too the sacrifice of Jesus here will have no meaning. When in actuality it is everything. He doesn’t want us making a decision for Christ. We should make that decision and then go on to other planets. But without Christ we will just die and go to hell and we will be forgotten and our lives will be in vain.
Make that decision for Christ and tell Him you want to give your life to Him. Tell Him to forgive your sins and that you are genuinely sorry. Ask Jesus to be your Savior. Repent and be saved. Maybe God won’t end it till after we get to Alpha-Centauri. But now we are planning for His soon return.
