Crosspoint: God created a Sacred Space for his Sheep.

1. God watches over the sheep of Israel

John 10:17-18

The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life—only to take it up again. 18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.”

A. What is the history of the Land called Israel and sometimes Palestine?

B. Called “The Land In Between.”

C. Land given by God to the Hebrew People

2. Beware of the false shepherds and false voices.

John 10:10

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

3. The Great Shepherd will be returning

John 10:17-18

How do end time prophecies fit into what the Great Shepherd is trying to accomplish?

Ezekiel 34

Questions To Consider:

1. Where is God’s “Sheepfold” for the nation of Israel? How and why does God protect his Sheep?

2. How do we distinguish between God’s voice and a false Shepherd

3. How should we respond to false shepherds?

4. How do we prepare for the Great Shepherd’s return?
