Who Is The Lost Sheep In The Parable Of The Lost Sheep? by live4dgospel(m): 7:39am On Jan 02
Jesus Christ is looking for His lost sheep and He has commanded us the believers in the gospel of the water and the Spirit in this age and time to help Him find them. But when we rather find those who are not lost, we have to plough their hearts first, because unless people know about their fundamental sinful nature, Jesus Christ will not call them even if He wants to do so.

In the parable of the lost sheep (Luke 15:1-7), one out of the hundred sheep was lost, found and delivered by the Lord. To you my online friends, I want to ask you a question. Which one are you? Are you the lost sheep or one of the ninety-nine just sheep who need no repentance?

Those who are lost sheep before Jesus Christ are those who know that they are sinners who deserve to be cast into hell for their sins. They are the ones who mourn over the sins they commit while living in this world and seek the salvation of God.

But ninety-nine sheep who were not lost are the sinners who do not know about their sins and the judgement of their sins.In other words, they are the self-righteous people.

If the Shepherd leaves ninety-nine sheep in the forest to look for one lost sheep, what will happen to the ninety-nine sheep? They will all die of hunger or be destroyed by ravenous wolves. Jesus Christ will not save those who think they are righteous if even He wants unless they plough their hearts first. When we the believers in the gospel of the water and the Spirit meet those who are not the lost sheep, we have to let them know about their sins and the law of God because Jesus Christ is looking for those who know how sinful they are and wants to save them with His baptism at the Jordan River and His blood of the Cross. Jesus Christ does not mind pushing the sheep who were not lost into ocean and casting them into hell if they ever become an obstacle to the salvation of one lost sheep.

So then, have you become a lost sheep before our Shepherd Jesus Christ,the Son of God? Jesus Christ is looking for you with the gospel of the water and the Spirit.

The lost sheep are lost of Israel. They are those who were condemned by God of His Israel to die. And before you begin about some idea about a spiritual or adopted Israel, the same God of Israel informed you earlier in Scripture that the life of a man is in His blood suggesting that it is only those who have the literal blood of the man Jacob in their vein can claim to be of him. undecided
