2 Sonne of man, prophecie against the shepheards of Israel, prophecie and say vnto them, Thus saith the Lord God vnto the shepheards, Woe be to the shepheards of Israel that doe feede themselues: should not the shepheards feede the flockes?
4 The diseased haue ye not strengthened, neither haue yee healed that which was sicke, neither haue ye bound vp that which was broken, neither haue yee brought againe that which was driuen away, neither haue yee sought that which was lost; but with force and with crueltie haue yee ruled them.
8 As I liue, saith the Lord God, surely because my flocke became a pray, and my flocke became meate to euery beast of the field, because there was no shepheard, neither did my shepheards search for my flocke, but the shepheards fed themselues, and fed not my flocke:
10 Thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I am against the shepheards, and I will require my flocke at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flocke, neither shall the shepheards feede themselues any more: for I will deliuer my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them.
12 As a shepheard seeketh out his flocke in the day that hee is among his sheepe that are scattered: so wil I seeke out my sheep, and will deliuer them out of all places, where they haue bene scattered in the cloudie and darke day.
13 And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countreys, and will bring them to their owne land, and feede them vpon the mountaines of Israel by the riuers, and in all the inhabited places of the countrey,
14 I will feede them in a good pasture, and vpon the high mountaines of Israel shall their folde be: there shall they lie in a good folde, and in a fat pasture shall they feede vpon the mountaines of Israel.
16 I will seeke that which was lost, and bring againe that which was driuen away, and will bind vp that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sicke: but I will destroy the fat and the strong, I will feed them with iudgement.
18 Seemeth it a small thing vnto you, to haue eaten vp the good pasture, but ye must tread downe with your feet the residue of your pastures? and to haue drunke of the deepe waters, but yee must fonle the residue with your feete?
27 And the tree of the field shal yeeld her fruite, and the earth shall yeeld her increase, and they shall be safe in their land, and shall know that I am the Lord, when I haue broken the bands of their yoke, and deliuered them out of the hand of those that serued themselues of them.

I love starting in verse 11. I believe this scripture is speaking of what a Pastor/Shepherd should look like. Caring, nurturing, instructing, feeding, encouraging, helping, teaching, showing how to Love God!

I have not read the Bible in years, since I was a boy.

Seems this is a warning to all who are pastors, those that have fed themselves, confused the sheep and scattered them. I think that it is also a warning to each of us. It is so easy to look at the pastor and judge. It is only God and His Son that are perfect. We should still not forsake the assemblies.

Ezekiel 34:29 declares “And I will raise up for them a plant of renown, and they shall be no more consumed with hunger in the land, neither bear the shame of the heathen any more”.
What plant is it about? Because some suggest it is Hemp.

This beautiful and passionate passage proves to me that we as his children are well taken care of when we bring our supplications to him. Also insinuates fear (respect), fear to obey and watch where we trample our feet.

This chapter touches me a lot. I feel renewed after reading and meditating on this. God really cares about His children, and always wants us to be happy. My God is indeed God.

Warning to the pastors and those who teach the word of God. God going out and finding his lost sheep and bring them all together. He will restore those that hear and do what pleases him. He will judge the pastors who have not taught the people.
