‘Sheeple’ is a derogatory term for people who follow, like sheep, those who lead them into a herd mentality. People have a tendency to follow the crowd blindly with the great help of mass manipulation. They are tracked and traced and the data collected give the tools to do just that! They have been led into error and destruction. But God knows everything they do and has promised to send a Deliverer like unto Moses for His flock.
“Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel is come unto Me; and I have also seen the oppression wherewith the Egyptians oppress them. Come now, therefore, and I will send you to Pharaoh, that you may bring forth My people, out of Egypt.”The LORD God to Moses, Exodus 3:9-10
Jesus identified the leaders, the priests and governors, in his time as hypocrites and “blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.” Mat 15:14
“I am not sent but unto the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel.”
“The Lord has anointed me to preach good tidings to the meek; He has sent me to heal/bind up the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance/liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind…”Jesus, Matthew 15:24, Mark 4:17-19 (Isaiah 61)
The Prophet Jeremiah prophesied:
“In those days, saith the LORD, the children of Israel shall come, they and the children of Judah together… They shall go and seek the LORD their God…’
The Lost Sheep
My people have been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray. They have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their resting-place. All that found them have devoured them. Their adversaries said, ‘We don’t offend because they have sinned against the LORD…
“Come out of the midst of Babylon, and go forth out of the land of the Chaldeans.”The Prophet Jeremiah, chapter 50:4-8
All we, like sheep…
“All we, like sheep, have gone astray: we have turned every one to his own way…”Isaiah 53:6
The Prophet Ezekiel prophesied:
Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing
“The word of the LORD came to me, saying, ‘Son of Adam, prophesy to them: Thus saith the Lord GOD to the shepherds; ‘Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! shouldn’t the shepherds feed the flocks? You eat the fat and you clothe yourselves with the wool. You kill them that are fed: but you don’t feed the flock.
The diseased you have not strengthened, neither have you healed that which was sick, neither have you bound up that which was broken, neither have you brought again that which was driven away, neither have you sought that which was lost; but with force and with cruelty you have ruled over them.
They were scattered, because there is no shepherd: and they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered. My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill. Yes, My flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seek after them.
Therefore, O you shepherds, hear the word of the LORD;
Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against the shepherds; and I will require My flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more; for I will deliver My flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat/food for them.
For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both search My sheep, and seek them out. As a shepherd seeks out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out My sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.
I will bring them out from among the people, and gather them from the countries. And I will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country. I will feed them in a good pasture, upon the high mountains of Israel shall their fold be. There shall they lie in a good fold, and in a fat pasture shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel.
I will feed my flock, and cause them to lie down, saith the Lord GOD. I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away. I will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick. But I will destroy the fat and the strong; and will feed them with judgment.
And as for you, O My flock, thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I judge between cattle and cattle, between the rams and the he goats.
Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD to them; Behold, I, even I, will judge between the fat cattle and between the lean cattle. Because you have thrust with side and with shoulder and pushed all the diseased with your horns, till you have scattered them abroad; Therefore will I save My flock, and they shall no more be a prey; and I will judge between cattle and cattle.
And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even My servant of David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd. And I the LORD will be their God, and My servant of David a prince among them; I the LORD have spoken it.
And I will make a covenant of peace with them… and they shall dwell safely in the wilderness. I will make them and the places round about My Mountain a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in the set time; there shall be showers of blessing.
…And shall know that I am the LORD, when I have broken the bands of their yoke and delivered them out of the hand of those that served themselves of them. And they shall no more be a prey to the heathen, neither shall the beast of the land devour them; but they shall dwell safely, and none shall make them afraid.
And I will raise up for them a plant of renown. They shall be no more consumed with hunger in the land, neither bear the shame of the heathen any more. Thus shall they know that I the LORD their God am with them and that they, the House of Israel, are My people. And you My flock, the flock of My pasture, are people, and I am your God, saith the Lord GOD.”The Prophet Ezekiel, chapter 34
A Psalm of David
“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want/be lacking. He makes me to lie down in green pastures: He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul: He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His Name’s sake.
Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff they comfort me. You have prepared a table before me in the presence of my enemies: You anoint my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life. And I will dwell in the House of the LORD for ever.”Psalm 23
The Good Shepherd
Jesus said to them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door! By me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief comes not, but for to steal, kill, destroy. I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.’
“I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd gives his life for the sheep. But he that is an hireling… sees the wolf coming, and leaves the sheep and flees. Then the wolf catches them, and scatters the sheep. The hireling flees, because he is an hireling, and doesn’t really care for the sheep.
I am the good shepherd and I know my sheep, and am known of mine. As the Father knows me, even so I know the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
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, Gospel of John 10:7-16
“Babylon is Fallen, is Fallen”
“And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven … And he cried mightily saying, ‘Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of demons…”
‘Come out of her, that you are don’t partake of her sins and that you receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities… For by your sorceries/pharmacea are all nations deceived. And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints and of all that were slain upon the earth.”The Revelation of Jesus Christ, chapter 18
“Behold, My people is led to slaughter like a flock. I will not allow them to live in the land of Egypt/oppression any longer. But I will bring them out with a strong hand and an outstretched arm and I will strike Egypt with plague as I did before and destroy all its land. Let Egypt lament, and its foundations, for the plague of punishment and correction that the Lord will bring upon it.
Let the farmers who cultivate the soil lament, for their grain will fail, and their trees will be destroyed by blight and hail and a fearful star. Alas for the world and those who live in it! For the sword and their destruction have drawn near, and nation will rise against nation to fight with swords in their hands (Matt 24). For there will be inconstancy among men; they will grow strong, one party against another, and have no regard for their king or the chief of their princes, in their strength.
For a man will want to enter a city and won’t be able. For because of their pride, the cities will be in confusion, the houses will be wiped out, men will be afraid. A man will not have pity on his neighbor when it comes to making an attack on their houses with the sword, and plundering their property, because of hunger for bread, and because of great distress.
‘Behold, I will call together,’ says the Lord God, ‘all the kings of the earth, to fear/reverence Me, … to turn and give back what they have given them. For as they have done to this day to My Chosen, I will do and will pay it back into their laps.’
This is what the Lord God says: ‘My right hand will not spare the sinners, and My sword will not cease from those who shed innocent blood on the earth. And a fire went forth from His wrath and consumed the foundations of the earth and the sinners like burnt straw. Alas for those who sin and don’t keep My commandments,’ says the Lord;
‘I will not spare them. Begone, you rebellious sons, do not pollute My Sanctuary. For the Lord knows all who offend against Him, therefore He has given them up to die and to be killed. For now disasters have come upon the whole world, and you will stay among them, for God will not deliver you, because you have sinned against Him.’2 Esdras 15:10-27
And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Hallelujah; Salvation, and glory, and honor, and power, unto the Lord our God: For true and righteous are His judgments: for He has judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and has avenged the blood of His servants at her hand.Rev 19:1-2
