Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto 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 cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to 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 giveth his life for the sheep. But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. John 10:7-12. A wolf is someone inside the church, inside a body of Believers who tries to look like, act like, and talk like, a Believer. On the surface, he looks good, sounds good, and generally "is good" in the eyes of the general populace of the body of Believers. A few will Discern the wolf's real motives and will purposely watch him. And the Pastor will deal with him as directed. A wolf works from the inside out, sneaking into an existing "Fellowship of Believers" to destroy, disband, and dilute the Faithful all he can. He publicly "talks the talk", but behind the scenes, he will trash the Pastor every way he can. BUT WHAT IF THE "pASTOR" IS A WOLF? Same thing, he will preach useless watered down "gospel" messages to appease his sheep as he "fleeces" them for all he can get. Just look at all the Dead Denominations laying around preaching heresy. No matter how you slice it, Satan is alive and well on planet earth doing all he can to "destroy" The Church. Again, NO MATTER WHAT, CHRIST WILL LOSE NOT EVEN ONE OF HIS SHEEP. He will find and save all who are His. Judas Iscariot was never a True follower of Christ, Saul of Tarsus was. Don't look on outside appearances. Seek Christ, Discern Wisely, Preach, Teach, and Talk to everyone, Obey the Holy Spirit, and, Be Blessed.
