If this website has been a blessing to you wouldn’t it be nice to share it with someone else so they can be blessed also?
There are so many people who are hurting in this world and they need some hope and that comes through the Word of God which is very prevalent in this ministry.
The word SHEPHERD in the text above is RAAH in Hebrew.
There something very endearing about our Lord and the fact that HE is your shepherd.
I want to look at just a couple of verses in Psalm 23.
Of prime importance is the understanding that you have concerning just how much your Shepherd loves you.
Your Shepherd has such compassion and love for you that He would and did sacrifice His life for you so that you would have the opportunity to receive Him as your Savior and live forever with Him.
Your Shepherd sacrificed His life for you so that you can live throughout eternity in His very presence.
Pastors of congregations are considered shepherds but they are under shepherd’s to the great Shepherd which is your Savior the Lord Jesus Christ.
Good pastors try to do their best to be a responsible shepherd to their flock but no one can shepherd you like the Great Shepherd, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Jesus had some powerful things to say about His being a Shepherd:
“I am the Good Shepherd: the Good Shepherd giveth His life for the sheep. But he that is a 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. The hireling fleeth, because he is a hireling, and careth not for the sheep. I am the Good Shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep. And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice: and there shall be on fold, and one shepherd.” John 10: 11-16
The problem with the hireling is that he is a hired servant and paid to be a shepherd instead of the Good Shpherd who does not need to be paid and will do a perfect job taking care of the sheep.
The Good Shepherd has a vested interest in the sheep they are His most valuable treasure His most valuable asset his sheep (you and I) are His most valuable treasure as we are His creation.
So there is a huge difference between anyone even a pastor who is an under shepherd to the Good Shepherd the Lord Jesus Christ.
I encourage you to talk to the Lord and ask Him to give you a revelation of all that He as the Good Shepherd will invest in your life because of His great love for you.
Notice what the Psalm says: “The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want.” Psalm 23:1
Here we get a picture of any Christian who is serving the Lord with all of his heart not even having a want when the Good Shepherd is running your life.
David experienced this in his life as he faithfully served the Lord.
David trusted in the Lord with all his heart.
It is believed that David under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit wrote the 23rd Psalm when King Saul out of his jealousy of David was chasing David around Israel trying to kill him.
David as times was without water or food. And was near death at times just trying to evade King Saul and stay alive.
But the wonderful thing that happened is that the Lord victoriously delivered David from all his trouble as the Lord had His hand on David and that kept David safe.
You may be going through some real trouble right now and don’t know what to do.
I want you to know that the Lord has not forgotten about you and as you live and trust in Him the Lord will always deliver you and give you abundance so that you will not want.
Can you imagine someone chasing you around the country and you never knew when that person that is trying to kill you will sneak upon you when your guard is down.
That is exactly what happened to David.
“He maketh me to lie down in green pastures, He leadeth me beside the still waters. Psalm 23:2
The Lord will lead you into green pastures where life and safety are and will be with you among the still waters.
The Lord promises you that He will never leave you nor forsake you. Never, Never, Never.
Have you ever been promised something from the Lord and every day you get up and you wonder why it has not appeared yet, why that promotion God promised you, or something new in your life has not come to pass yet?
This is where David was when he wrote the Psalm 23.
The prophet Samuel had already anointed David to be king and yet this other King Saul was still running after David no matter where he went and kept trying to kill David.
David must have thought many times and even talked to the Lord and asked the Lord, “why is this happening to me after you promised me that I was to be king?”
It is estimated that it was approximately 15 years after the prophet Samuel anointed David to be King of Israel before it actually happened.
I know all of the waiting is hard for all of us but the wait is always for a good purpose in God’s timing which we do not understand.
During this time of waiting for the blessing of God upon your life it develops your faith for battles in the future where you will need rock solid faith to be able to possess the blessing that is attached to it.
Remember back to the first part of the 23 Psalm:
The Lord is my Shepherd, I SHALL NOT WANT.” Psalm 23:1
God’s Word is always sure and though it may take years to manifest the Bible says that THE LORD IS YOUR SHEPHERD AND YOU SHALL NOT WANT.
I am so thankful for a Good Shepherd in my life that does not lie.
Know this, delay is not denial when God’s promise to you is on the line.
IT SHALL COME TO PASS.
This part of the 23rd Psalm is so powerful:
“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me, thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.” Psalm 23:4
As I mentioned David wrote this under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit in the middle of King Saul having such jealousy toward David that all he could think of was to kill David.
So David knowing the hatred that Kind Saul had toward him felt like he was walking through the valley of the shadow of death.
King Saul was constantly chasing David around the countryside.
There is a wonderful lesson to be learned in Psalm 23:4.
Sometimes even after God promises to deliver you from a problem you may face walking through the valley of the shadow of death.
Notice is says that David walked THROUGH the valley of the shadow of death.
Also notice is said that it was going to be a SHADOW of death, not death.
Sometimes the Lord will have you go AROUND the valley of the shadow of death and completely avoid it.
And sometimes the Lord will REMOVE the valley of the shadow of death.
But no matter how God does it you will be DELIVERED-YOU SHALL NOT WANT.
Over the years one of my favorite verses of encouragement in God’s Word is this:
“The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and He addeth no sorrow with it.” Proverbs 10:22
The greatest blessing the Lord can ever give you is to make you spiritually rich, that is the highest and best blessing that the Lord could ever give you.
All the other areas of your life can be rich also but they do not compare with spiritual prosperity.
It is far and above the very best blessing that a person could ever receive from the Lord.
For David to finally come out of the valley of death he was in and become king of Israel and the anointing he had as a King of Israel is priceless.
For you to come out of your valley of the shadow of death and receive the manifestation of what God promised you is priceless.
No more sleepless nights, no more worrying all day long, no longer wondering when the blessing will come, that is priceless.
Know this, God is ALWAYS faithful and He NEVER LIES.
THE LORD IS YOUR SHEPHERD AND YOU SHALL NOT WANT!

We are involved in our ministry on an international level and also will be continuing to minister at churches as we are led to go to these churches in the United States.
On Tuesday October 27, 2015 the Spirit of God gave me a dream about a very large amount of people that I was ministering to. It seemed they were from different parts of the world. As I ministered to them I told them that WORLD WIDE REVIVAL was coming and that it would touch everyone on the face of the earth.
Every time I would say something to this huge crowd of people there would come a shout of excitement from them. But as I looked over to my right there was a man who I got eye contact with and I said this to him as we looked at each other. I told that man, whoever he was, that it was even going to affect him even though he would try to resist it.
And then I woke up.
Nita and I knew then and now that it was a dream from the Spirit of God and that He had called Nita and me to be part of this END TIME WORLD WIDE REVIVAL.
Since then I have ministered on revival in meetings and conversations I have had with other churches around the world.
JESUS SAID, “SAY NOT YE, THERE ARE YET FOUR MONTHS, AND THEM COMETH HARVEST? BEHOLD, I SAY UNTO YOU, LIFT UP YOUR EYES, AND LOOK ON THE FIELDS; FOR THEY ARE WHITE ALREADY TO HARVEST.” JOHN 4:35
Mankind has a tendency to push revival back to sometime in the future.
REVIVAL, REVIVAL, REVIVAL. (NOW, NOW, NOW).
“AS GOD’S PARTNERS, WE BEG YOU NOT TO ACCEPT THIS MARVELOUS GIFT OF GOD’S KINDNESS AND THEN IGNORE IT. FOR GOD SAYS, AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME, I HEARD YOU. ON THE DAY OF SALVATION I HELPED YOU.” 2 Corinthians 6:1-2, NEW LIVING TRANSLATION. INDEED THE “RIGHT TIME” IS NOW. TODAY IS THE DAY OF SALVATION.”
We are spreading the Word of God around the world as the Holy Spirit leads us to new areas in an ever increasing amount.

If you have come to this ministry website today and have never asked Jesus Christ to come into your life and be born again, you are not here by accident, the Spirit of the Living God drew you here.
If you do not have the assurance of where you would spend eternity if you died right now please go to the top of this website and it will have a tab for “SALVATION.” In that tab will be what is required by God to be right with Him. When you pray that prayer and accept the Lord please send us a Gmail to our website at: email@example.com and let us know that you accepted the Lord as your Savior and Lord and were born again. We want to rejoice with you and pray for you. Thank you (Please look up these scriptures: John 3:3 and Romans 10:9-10 it talks about you being born again).
Surely you know people who are going through hell and high water with real battles in their life both Christians and those that are not born again Christians. The Word of God that is presented each week will help turn their situation around if they do the Word of God and instead of the anguish and tears will bring a smile and victory to their life, isn’t that worth you sharing this website with others?
This includes the ones that not able to go to church because of disabilities and sickness or for one reason or another can’t attend church. Can you imagine how this Word of God would bless and comfort them? Please share this website with these folks also.
