Do you believe Moses?

46 For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me, for he wrote about Me. 47 But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?” 

Yeshua, John 5:46-47

Beware the Ides of March!!

As I was washing dishes after lunch I was pondering the Conclave at the Vatican and a news article I saw in the last 24 hours about the expectation of a new Pope by Friday….  The phrase, ‘Beware the Ides of March’ popped into my head.

Having learned to pay attention to the gentle whisper, I ran to the calender and was shocked to see Friday as the Ides (15th) of March…  Now, this may mean NOTHING, or it may be an interesting point to add to the prophecy laden days we’ve had in recent weeks….

If the Pope is s/elected on Friday the 15th of March, that would be an interesting omen if indeed he is Petrus Romanus.

I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep…. I have other sheep, which are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they will hear My voice; and they will become one flock with one shepherd. “

Yeshua (Jesus), John 10:11-16

15 The word of the Lord came again to me saying, 16 “And you, son of man, take for yourself one stick and write on it, ‘For Judah and for the sons of Israel, his companions’; then take another stick and write on it, ‘For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and all the house of Israel, his companions.’ 17 Then join them for yourself one to another into Continue reading “One Shepherd, one flock, one stick… Compare.”
