How did Jesus ask you to prove your love for Him?
In this unique passage in the New Testament, Jesus questions an apostle about his love for Him. No, it is not Judas. Three times Jesus asks this Apostle if he loves Him. And three times the apostle says, “[Yes!],” incredulous that Jesus would ask him three times. You would be right if you said, “Peter.”
This is not a Bible trivia game I am playing with you. This the most important passage in the Bible for 2017, and perhaps ever. Now, what did Jesus come back with in response to Peter’s assertion of his love for Him?
I won’t tell you yet. You must first appreciate, the whole earth is replete with spirits of confusion, obfuscation, lies, biblical corruption and worldly distractions. It is very difficult to focus on what is important in these last days; but, this excuse is no defense when standing before the throne of God.
We are in the final lap of the human race in 2017; you can fail or you can be victorious. Choose today.
If you do not seek to know Him, to please Him, with purity and a clean heart, you cannot join Him in eternity. There is no deal-making with Jesus. He gave His command three times. There are no “maybes, if, ands or buts.” Under the dispensation of grace, “once saved is not always saved.” What is the last thing Jesus said to the adulteress after saving her from stoning? “Sin no more,” he said in His parting words. If you sin and fail to repent BEFORE the time of His coming, your salvation is not assured. Do not even sin in your thoughts. (I repent often and quickly bringing my flesh and thoughts, however small the sin may be. Murmuring, complaining, resenting….)
A stained Bride is not worthy of a pure Bridegroom. Keep the stain-remover handy! The brand is “Freedom.” It was purchased for you on the cross and its comes to you from above free of delivery charges too. It’s the best deal on the planet.
Jesus made Himself clear three times without use of a parable he often used for those hard of hearing. It was meant for us, His chosen. And we can lose that favor if we disobey.
It’s crunch time Brothers and Sisters. You can no longer delay. You can no longer let the things of this world consume you. So what does Jesus instruct you to do? Three times he repeated this. Three times is very important. It is Jesus’ way of raising the importance of His words.
Are you ready?
He said to Peter, “Feed my Lambs,” “Feed My Sheep,” “Feed My Sheep,” to prove his love for Him. Do you understand that this is your first task? What food are we talking about? The Word of God. Jesus is the Word made flesh. Feed the newborns, the lambs with newborn food in the scriptures. Feed the mature sheep with truth as so many have gone astray.
You watchman who talk about the devil’s works without cease, making profit from it, your salvation is not assured. Repent and FEED HIS SHEEP!
You false teachers who add to the scriptures and new meaning to Jesus’ words, also making profit from it, naming and claiming, prophesying riches, imparting spirits not of God, your salvation is not assured. Repent and FEED HIS SHEEP!
You false prophets who equate foreign gods and idols with the one true Savior Jesus Christ, the only way, your salvation is not assured. Repent and FEED HIS SHEEP!
The whole world is called. All are potentially lambs. All. Thieves, prostitutes, prisoners, the fatherless, the poor, the rich–everyone. Turn them into lambs and sheep. And let not one of them go astray. You are a Shepherd, not a hireling. This is your commission from Jesus’ own lips.
I bring to mind that Peter denied Jesus three times. Jesus gave Peter the opportunity to reverse this three times also. Peter became a powerful, obedient disciple, healing with great signs and wonders from then on. You will also if you obey Him.
Thank you Jesus for putting this on my heart.
It is written in John (21:14-17):
14 This is now the third time that Jesus shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from the dead.
15 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.
16 He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
