Once also that man returns to me, who long remained in resistance – once he will be tired of his error and lets himself be lifted on to my shoulders; once also he will follow willingly the good shepherd, the sound of his voice will lure him – he will recognize it as the father’s voice and follow me, and I will guide him into the father house and prepare a meal out of joy that I have found again what was lost.

Parable of the good shepherd.

2. July 1948. B.D. NR. 4360.

A parable I want to give you, and you are to learn from it, how I want my word to be understood. My earth children are like a heard of scattered sheep, which through the evil will of an enemy were chased out of the horizon of the shepherd and scattered in all directions. And now the shepherd goes, because he loves his sheep, looking for them; he searches for them in the most hidden corners; he climbs on mountains, climbs down into mountain clefts; he calls and lures and does not rest, until he has again his herd together. He helps the little sheep, which have got lost and can no longer get back alone; he goes far ways, where they have already gone too far away; he takes the tired little sheep on to his shoulders and carries them back; none he abandons to its fate, his enemy, that he robs it from him and attributes its falsely to his own herd. Because he knows his sheep; and his sheep know him and follow his voice. And the heart of the good shepherd rejoices, so he has found all his little sheep again, so his stable holds his complete herd, so every little sheep has found home, which was lost. All of you are my sheep; you belong to my herd, which however have free space to run round in, and for that reason also can lose their way, if they strive for another aim than me. The hostile shepherd is my opponent, who seeks to alienate you from me. And he will often succeed. My sheep are carried off course from that way, where I walk with my herd; they seek to climb the heights. Honour and wealth you men seek, and for such you deviate from the way; you fall into gorges and abysses; the vices and lusts of the world imprison you; you sink to the deep step by step and can be thankful when you get stuck at hedges and undergrowth – when still little doubts emerge in you, you do not shake off such and so remain protected from the deepest fall, until your rescuer comes. Others again graze on foreign fields; they get lost and no longer find back into their stable – these are those men who walk through earth life without thinking, who are beneficiaries from acts, which are not according to my will, but bring in great earthly advantage for them. These think themselves not being bad; they are lukewarm, neither turned towards me nor against me; they walk through earth valley unmindful of their earth task; they must be disturbed and chased back that they again flee into my arms, I who as good shepherd am always prepared to receive them. Everywhere I must seek my little sheep, which were lost; my call must get through everywhere, and for that reason my voice must sound again and again – again and again I must come in the word to men and call them home into the father house. My word is the good shepherd’s call; my word is supplied to men in love; my word gets through into all corners where it just finds entrance into the hearts of men. And who does not follow my call, he gets stuck more and more or sinks deeper and deeper. And nevertheless the arm of the good shepherd will once reach him, even so times still passes about it. Once also that man returns to me, who long remained in resistance – once he will be tired of his error and lets himself be lifted on to my shoulders; once also he will follow willingly the good shepherd, the sound of his voice will lure him – he will recognize it as the father’s voice and follow me, and I will guide him into the father house and prepare a meal out of joy that I have found again what was lost. Amen. B.D. NR. 4360.
