David Jay Jordan's
Shepherd's Rod and Entrance Test
Shepherd's use to stand at the entrance of their sheep fold and have the sheep pass by them and into their
encampment by passing under their shepherd's staffs or rods. Care had to be taken that no predators or wolves in
sheep clothing entered, so as to attack the sheep from within. Similarly, the Lord of our End-Time Encampment
has to have His 2 Shepherds or Witnesses (Rev 11) make sure, only the Lord's sheep enter into the One sheepfold
(John 10) and no 'mixed multitude' of 'half hearts' (Revelations 3: 15-16) dilutes the purity of His Bride. So as with
the physical sheep, the Lord's spiritual sheep will have to literally pass under the Shepherd's ROD. (Ezekiel 20: 37)
The Lord will have entrance tests to prove the heart and soul of those trying to enter his sheepfold. For just as
with Communion, that can be a curse to those that drink it unworthily, even those passing unworthily under the
shepherd's rod, can suffer similar fates. For as the Lord said to Ezekiel concerning NOT Ezekiel's Time but our
EndTimeâ€¦........ ( starting at Ezekiel 20: 33).......
33 - As I live saith the Lord GOD, surely with a mighty hand and with a stretched out arm and with fury poured
out, will I rule over you. (In other words, it won't be a day for the weak and fearful, and the Lord will be by force
gathering us and defending us).
34 - And I will gather you out from the people and will gather you out of the countries wherein ye are scattered
with a mighty hand and with a stretched out arm and with fury poured out. (The Lord will gather us from all over
the world, from all sorts of groups and nationalities and bring us together and Not leave us separated and at the
mercy of the Anti-Christ and his ilk)
35 - And I will bring you into the wilderness of the people (And the woman fled into the wilderness where she
hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand and two hundred and sixty days. - Rev
12: 6)â€¦. and there will I plead with you face to face (exactly what happened in the 1st Exodus, but this will be the
2nd Exodus, as the Lord will speak face to face in His original tabernacle over his original Ark to His Two EndTime
36 - Like as I pleaded with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so will I plead with you saith the
Lord (The exact same Exodus out of Egypt will happen again â€¦ for the 2 Shepherds are again told to â€¦'FEED
thy People with thy ROD, the flock of thine inheritance which dwell solitarily in the woodâ€¦as in the days of old.
According to the days of thy coming out of Egypt will I shew unto him marvellous thingsâ€¦.Micah 7: 14-15)
37 - And I will cause you to PASS under the ROD, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant. (We will
have to again PASS UNDER THE ROD)
38- And I (the Lord) will PURGE out from among you the rebels and them that transgress against me; I will bring
them forth out of the country where they sojourn, and they shall not enter into the land of Israel; and ye shall
know that I am the Lord . (For the Lord will make sure that we all have a FEAR of HIM especially after seeing the
judgments on the rebels that will have attempted to enter his sheepfold other than through the door.
John 10â€¦7 - Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. 8 - All
that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. 9 - I am the door by me, if any
man enter in, he shall be saved and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
For as David said in Psalm's ..the Lord's rod and staff will comfort us in the wilderness and will supply our needs
and our protection in Jesus Name.
