If You love ME, Feed My Sheep

 

Yochanan & CatharinaYochanan and Catharina Schouten-Meijer  are called by the Father in 1996.  They are ordained in the Apostolic and Prophetic Ministry in the year 2005 at the restoration church in Groningen.  Word for the ministry: Isaiah 45

If you visit the about us page on our site you will see the video where our ordination happened.  A new website, after the deep pruning of these passed months.  And new things and open doors are the result as you already knew…

But these past view days Yochan and I experienced that it is finally time to stand together in the way Abba ordained a long time ago.  This morning we changed it also on our site and blog after Abba confirmed it in both of our hearts!

Abba gave me this word back:  But He is calling us both now in a deeper way!  Yochanan for the brothers to be a spiritual father to them.  So it is re-written from me, to us:

The Lord brought us to a place near the water, where we only saw sheep and birds!  The first impression was of a peaceful flock.  But as I looked closer I saw that many of them instead of walking in the grass, where drifting away to a place filled with asphalt.

Suddenly the Lord said:  “I see this all of the time happening with My children.”

I begun to feel a heaviness deep inside of me, and I said: “Abba, if you still call us to feed your sheep, then send one of them to me.”

Meanwhile, we started to walk near the water.  During that long and peaceful walk, that feeling of heaviness stayed deep down inside of my heart.  After a hour or so, we came at the other side of the enormous field filled with sheep.  This time we stood on a large spot of concrete and there was also some ground filled with juicy light green grass.  Almost all the sheep walked on the concrete instead of the grass.

My eyes were drawn to two sheep, who walked together closely, as if they were really knit together.  But as soon as they thought they found something to eat, they pushed each other away!

While Yochanan and I stood there in silence, suddenly one of the sheep started to walk towards us.  Slowly with his eyes steady looking at us ……  and just when I said: “ Oh my, see what is happening, a second sheep came also ….  and suddenly the Lord said:  “This is what you asked of Me, remember?”

Now this is what Abba tells us today:

“Many of My children are sitting /attending churches and events where no good food is available!

Still they stay there, while close to that spot, there is a place where My meat can be found.

If you look at them just with your eyes, it seems they are in unity, but if you watch with your heart, filled with My Holy Spirit, you will discern it is false unity!   Behind the masks is jealousy, and they fight with each other for a certain position!

The so called shepherds, gather flock around them so they can fill their churches and events with enough listeners, and the willing listeners are coming without delay cause they search for excitement!

It is time that my sons come visible, and instead of having your own events, and your church-meetings filled with own programs, just to entertain and be entertained and to get some excitement, I want you to follow Me, so those who had no proper food at all, can get their vitamins, before they die of starvation!

The time of playing church is over!  Many of My children are persecuted and many are wandering without a real shepherd where I can minister through and show them My heart!

It is time for a turn around teshuva!   So a Holy Remnant can be set apart!
Your Father”

If You love ME, Feed My Sheep — 2 Comments

  1. Awesome King of Glory! We are indebted to be lost and soak in HIS Eternal love, life and dwell there forever.

  2. John 21:15-19 (NKJV)
    Jesus Restores Peter
    15 So when they had eaten breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me more than these?”
    He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.”
    He said to him, “Feed My lambs.”
    16 He said to him again a second time, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me?”
    He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.”
    He said to him, “Tend My sheep.”
    17 He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me?” Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, “Do you love Me?”
    And he said to Him, “Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You.”
    Jesus said to him,“Feed My sheep.  18 Most assuredly, I say to you, when you were younger, you girded yourself and walked where you wished; but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will gird you and carry you where you do not wish.” 19 This He spoke, signifying by what death he would glorify God. And when He had spoken this, He said to him, “Follow Me.”
