Hermas II (Commands) #1 provides a concise overview of the first Gnostic book of “Visions” before moving into Hermas’ first prophecies. What is the difference between commands and similitudes? Will Yahweh bless the disobedient? Who is the Shepherd? Do Israelites have guardian angels? Several of these questions are answered in this opening sermon that continues CPM’s longest-running audio series.
The Good Shepherd compares the testimonial of king David in Psalm 23:1 “The Lord is my shepherd” to a statement made by Christ “I AM the Good Shepherd.” Yahshua said He came only for the lost sheep of the house of Israel! This sermon from our series in Luke explains the scriptural usage of the words shepherd, flock, sheep and fold while attempting to clarify several motives for Jesus’ first advent.
Who Are The Sheep? confirms the lambs spoken about by scripture always relate to Yahweh’s Israelite people that are oftentimes “lost” to Christ due to their personal sins. This sermon explains preachers are to be shepherds yet when wolves adorn sheep’s clothing they scatter the flock. Also discussed is the Covenant People’s Book “Wolves In Sheep’s Clothing” available for purchase before a number of retail outlets.
As Sheep Going Astray examines Ist Peter 2:21-25 in light of Matthew 5:38-48 to prove the power of loving our personal enemies. This sermon about being wrongfully accused deals with the uncomfortable topics of “doing good to our people that hate us” and “blessing them who curse us.” We also prove Jesus added to the Old Testament law on ‘eye for eye’ and Peter instructs Christians to be perfected in love.
Parable of the Sheep proves the similarities of Matthew and Luke’s rendering of Yahshua’s parable to Thomas’ version in saying 107. Why did the “Good Shepherd” come only for the “lost sheep” of the house of Israel? Scripture clearly equates Yahweh’s chosen people to gullible lambs making this allegorical teaching of Christ essential for those who claim to be faithful yet withhold repentance from their brethren.
Parable of the Goats proves Yahshua is King and Judge during His second advent and personally separates the faithful sheep from disobedient goats. Why would a “God of love” cast certain people into everlasting fire and punishment? Who are the sheep mentioned by Christ in this parable? These questions are answered from the Gospel of Matthew 25:31-46 which is the only place in cannon it appears.
