Christ Jesus is the Light leading His Children to the Hidden Treasure: The Heavenly Kingdom since they are predestined to hear His Voice teaching them and penetrating their hearts through the Holy Spirit to permit to them to recognize His Divinity.
Further, Christ Jesus is the Gate of the Heavenly Kingdom and the key to enter by the gate is the Faith enlightening the soul to be able to live in comm-union- with Christ Jesus receiving His Holy Teachings as a Heavenly Constitution received through the Holy Spirit to walk in the Light leading the Apostles to fulfil all Righteousness.
So, Christ Jesus explaining this Truth obviously in John 10: 1-3: “The Shepherd and His Flock” proclaiming that : “ I tell you the truth, the man who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber. The man who enters by the gate is the shepherd of his sheep. The watchman opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.
And to be able to enter the sheep pen by the gate is to possess the Field of the Heavenly Kingdom and to exercise a power authorizing the sheep to enter the Light of Heaven-;- in another hand, to be the sheep is to be predestined by God the Father to have the aptitude permitting to recognize God’s Voice talking in the hearts of His Apostles since this Holy Voice is not strange for them but it is a deeply rooted Voice teaching them the way of Wisdom.
Furthermore, the sheep of Christ Jesus walking in the Light of His Voice don’t have wicked thoughts coming from the evil which pushing them to climb down because they chose other ways to try to enter and the term other ways is synonym of robbery, since Christ Jesus declaring explicitly:” I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
Therefore, since there is an only Path of Salvation that meaning the ability to enter the Heavenly Kingdom, whoever trying to utilise other ways is a thief doesn’t have the possibility to take possession of God’s Field: the Heavenly Kingdom, then the robber has never looked for the Heaven but he seeking only his worldly interests walking in the darkness of crimes since he employing all kinds of crimes to respond to his deep covetousness.
Furthermore, the Good Shepherd, that meaning the Good Leader leading to the Only Way of the Hidden Treasure: The Kingdom of Heaven, “goes on ahead of “His own, however, the robber hiding behind his flocks exposing them to the dangers since he searching only terrestrial power synonym of manipulation like the viper charmed his preys to devour it, thus, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy”.
Moreover, Christ Jesus as the Only Good Shepherd doesn’t abandon His Apostles predestined since the beginning to be “His own sheep” but He leading them to the Holy Salvation through His wise teachings of Righteousness employing a Parables riches of senses and reflections which pushing them to apply the Principles of Salvation through the obedience to His Holy Laws.
Therefore, living under the Holy Laws of Christ Jesus based on Love, the Apostles are free from the bondage of greedy desires and from the manipulation of false doctrines and harsh set of satanic rites and customs.
On the contrary, the flocks of the evil are leaven by him to be burned in the fires of hell since during the periods of dangers he abandon them to their sad fate, so Christ Jesus explaining this truth saying: “ The hired hand is not the shepherd who owns the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away.”
And this affirmation proclaimed by Christ Jesus is coherent with His assertion that the father of wicked persons is the evil saying in John 8:44:”44 you belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”
Therefore, the lost flocks belonging to the devil from the beginning that’s why they continuing to commit terrible crimes without the intention of contrition since they looking for financial interests and the redemption is not their goal to realize.
So, the self-interested is always motivated by cupidity and avarice as a result how can he be saved if he doesn’t search the salvation?
And these logic observations confirming the Solemn Declaration of Christ Jesus that: “I am the good shepherd-;- I know my sheep and my sheep know me just as the Father knows me and I know the Father and I lay down my life for the sheep. I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd. The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life only to take it up again.
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.”
Thus, the notion of Knowledge is always present in the Declarations of Christ Jesus to assert that it’s an ancient and recurring Knowledge residing from the beginning in the souls of the Apostles enabled by God the Father to see Christ Jesus as the Son of God and God Himself through the purity of heart-;- it amounts to saying that to recognize Christ Jesus as the Son of God and God Himself is to know Him by recognizing His Wise Voice through the Holy Spirit: the Only God’s Temple to be His only sheep belonging to the Only Shepherd: Christ Jesus.
