Sheep and their identity

Jehovah's Witnesses apply the Biblical term sheep to all of their flock at this time.

(I had addressed these pages initially to their leading elders at HQ)

It is very interesting however, that the term sheep seems to be uniquely reserved for congregation of God's firstborn son Israel. –Exodus 4:22, and, after their Messiah had redeemed them, more specifically focused on those destined to become the Heavenly Kingdom.

The primary identity must be the flock of Jacob, Jehovah's inheritance.

The scriptural path via the New World Translation's cross-references from John 21:17 leads these to-be-fed-sheep right into heaven:

(John 21:17) 17 He said to him the third time: “Simon son of John, do you have affection for me?” Peter became grieved that he said to him the third time: “Do you have affection for me?” So he said to him: “Lord, you know all things; you are aware that I have affection for you.” Jesus said to him: “Feed my little sheep M.

Marginals (John 10:3) The doorkeeper opens to this one, and the sheep M listen to his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.

(John 10:16) “And I have other sheep, which are not of this fold M; those also I must bring, and they will listen to my voice, and they will become one flock, one shepherd.

Marginals (John 10:27-28) 27 My sheep listen to my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. 28 And I give them everlasting life, and they will by no means ever be destroyed. . .

Marginals (Luke 12:32) “Have no fear, little flock, because your Father has approved of giving you the kingdom.

(John 10:1) “Most truly I say to you, He that does not enter into the sheepfold through the door M but climbs up some other place, that one is a thief and a plunderer.

Marginal (John 10:7) 7 Therefore Jesus said again: “Most truly I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.

Jesus the door of the sheep?  To where?

Out of Law's confinement to Heaven!

Yes, of course, because Jesus is also the curtain to the heavenly Most Holy:

(Hebrews 10:19-20) 19 Therefore, brothers, since we have boldness for the way of entry into the holy place by the blood of Jesus, 20 which he inaugurated for us as a new and living way through the curtain, that is, his flesh *,. . .

(Hebrews 6:19-20) 19 This [hope] we have as an anchor for the soul, both sure and firm, and it enters in within the curtain, 20 where a forerunner has entered in our behalf, Jesus*, who has become a high priest according to the manner of Mel·chiz´e·dek forever.

* Entry into the holy place of the heavenly temple was effected through the blood of the slaughtered  lamb Jesus, which atoned for Israel's transgressions of their law, while also serving as their 2nd Passover.
It was Jesus' blood and not Jesus himself in any shape, form or substance that gained entry into the Most Holy, carried by God's only begotten heavenly High Priest son.

(Hebrews 9:23-24) . . .. 24 For Christ entered, not into a holy place made with hands, which is a copy of the reality, but into heaven itself, now to appear before the person of God for us.. . .

I know you know all these Scriptures and some of the connections, but you apply it either to the wrong Nation or no nation at all  i.e. the earthly companions.


But just look at these verses and their connections:

(Ezekiel 34:15-17) 15 “I myself shall feed my sheep, and I myself shall make them lie down,” is the utterance of the Sovereign Lord Jehovah. 16 “The lost one I shall search for M, and the dispersed one I shall bring back, and the broken one I shall bandage and the ailing one I shall strengthen, but the fat one and the strong one I shall annihilate. I shall feed that one with judgment.” 17 And as for you my sheep, this is what the Sovereign Lord Jehovah has said:“Here I am judging between a sheep and a sheep, between the rams and the he-goats M

Marginals(Micah 4:6) “In that day,” is the utterance of Jehovah, “I will gather her that was limping; and her that was dispersed I will collect together, even her whom I have treated badly.

(Matthew 15:24) In answer he said: “I was not sent forth to any but to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”

Marginals(Matthew 25:33) And he will put the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on his left.

Though I must assume that many of these cross-references may only have been relative to word-occurrences and had initially perhaps little to do with doctrinal sequencing, they nonetheless stand out in their exquisite relationship to Jehovah's first-born Israel, His special possession, His inheritance, which He had never rejected.  It also applies to any other sheep that join with them to attain to the same heavenly privileges.

(Isaiah 56:8) The utterance of the Sovereign Lord Jehovah, who is collecting together the dispersed ones of Israel, is: “I shall collect together to him others besides those already collected together of his.

Here is the NT connection to confirm the above promise by implementing the gathering of other sheep from outside the flock of Jacob Israel:

(John 11:49-53) 49 But a certain one of them, Ca´ia·phas, who was high priest that year, said to them: “you do not know anything at all, 50 and you do not reason out that it is to your benefit for one man to die in behalf of the people and not for the whole nation to be destroyed.” 51 This, though, he did not say of his own originality; but because he was high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus was destined to die for the nation, 52 and not for the nation only, but in order that the children of God who are scattered about he might also gather together in one. 53 Therefore from that day on they took counsel to kill him

How will these others be gathered?:

(Matthew 28:19) 19 Go therefore and make disciples of people of all the nations*, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the holy spirit,. . .
* Primarily out of all the nations into which natural Jews and proselytes had been scattered.

(Zechariah 8:23) 23 “This is what Jehovah of armies has said, ‘It will be in those days that ten men out of all the languages of the nations will take hold, yes, they will actually take hold of the skirt of a man who is a Jew, saying: “We will go with you people, for we have heard [that] God is with you people.”’”. . .

Go with the Jew where?   Well, wherever the Jew is going: Heaven!

(John 10:26-28) 26 But you do not believe, because you are none of my sheep. 27 My sheep listen to my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. 28 And I give them everlasting life, and they will by no means ever be destroyed, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.. . .

They follow him?  Where to?   The Heavens of course!

. . . and will by no means ever be destroyed? . . . Really?

Yes, for they shall have immortality.

(Matthew 10:38) 38 And whoever does not accept his torture stake and follow after me is not worthy of me.

(Revelation 14:4) 4 These are the ones that did not defile themselves with women; in fact, they are virgins. These are the ones that keep following the Lamb no matter where he goes. These were bought from among mankind as firstfruits to God and to the Lamb,

‘no matter where he goes’?

Where was he going?

(John 13:36) 36 Simon Peter said to him: “Lord, where are you going?” Jesus answered: “Where I am going you cannot follow me now, but you will follow afterwards. *

* (John 14:3) Also, if I go my way and prepare a place for you, I am coming again and will receive you home to myself, that where I am you also may be.

(Hebrews 10:19-20) 19 Therefore, brothers, since we have boldness for the way of entry into the holy place by the blood of Jesus, 20 which he inaugurated for us as a new and living way through the curtain, that is, his flesh *,. . .

* (John 6:51) I am the living bread that came down from heaven; if anyone eats of this bread he will live forever; and, for a fact, the bread that I shall give is my flesh in behalf of the life of the world.” *

(Hebrews 6:19-20) 19 This [hope] we have as an anchor for the soul, both sure and firm, and it enters in within the curtain, 20 where a forerunner has entered in our behalf, Jesus, who has become a high priest according to the manner of Mel·chiz´e·dek forever.

*(Hebrews 10:10; 16-18) 10 By the said “will” we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all time. 16 “‘This is the covenant that I shall covenant toward them after those days,’ says Jehovah. ‘I will put my laws in their hearts, and in their minds I shall write them,’” 17 [it says afterwards:] “And I shall by no means call their sins and their lawless deeds to mind anymore.” 18 Now where there is forgiveness of these, there is no longer an offering for sin.

Yes, Israel were forgiven all their transgressions!

Not only did Paul assure the Hebrew brothers of their place in the heavens, but did likewise to the formerly Gentile proselyte brothers, as did Peter:

(2 Corinthians 5:1) 5 For we know that if our earthly house [current fleshly body], this tent, should be dissolved, we are to have a building from God, a house [a refashioned spirit body] not made with hands, everlasting in the heavens.

(Philippians 3:19-20) . . .and they have their minds upon things on the earth. 20 As for us, our citizenship exists in the heavens,. . .

(1 Peter 1:4) 4 to an incorruptible and undefiled and unfading inheritance. It is reserved in the heavens for you,. . .

Just to make sure that we understand who we are talking about, here is where Paul quotes from in Hebrews 10:16 above and other scriptural assurances:

(Jeremiah 31:31) . . .“and I will conclude with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah a new covenant. . .

(Jeremiah 31:35-37) 35 This is what Jehovah, the Giver of the sun for light by day, the statutes of the moon and the stars for light by night, the One stirring up the sea that its waves may become boisterous, the One whose name is Jehovah of armies, has said: 36 “‘If these regulations could be removed from before me,’ is the utterance of Jehovah, ‘those who are the seed of Israel could likewise cease from proving to be a nation before me always.’”

37 This is what Jehovah has said: “‘If the heavens up above could be measured and the foundations of the earth below could be searched out, I myself also could reject the entire seed of Israel on account of all that they have done*,’ is the utterance of Jehovah.”

*(Jeremiah 30:11) 11 “For I am with you,” is the utterance of Jehovah, “to save you; but I shall make an extermination among all the nations to which I have scattered you. However, in your case I shall make no extermination. And I shall have to correct you to the proper degree, as I shall by no means leave you unpunished.”

(Romans 11:1-6) 11 I ask, then, God did not reject his people, did he? Never may that happen! For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. 2 God did not reject his people, whom he first recognized. Why, do you not know what the Scripture says in connection with E·li´jah, as he pleads with God against Israel? 3 “Jehovah, they have killed your prophets, they have dug up your altars, and I alone am left, and they are looking for my soul.” 4 Yet, what does the divine pronouncement say to him? “I have left seven thousand men over for myself, [men] who have not bent the knee to Ba´al.” 5 In this way, therefore, at the present season also a remnant has turned up according to a choosing due to undeserved kindness.

Romans 15:8   For I say that Christ actually became a minister of those who are circumcised in behalf of God’s truthfulness, so as to verify the promises He made to their forefathers. . .

Galatians 4:4-5  But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law,  5  to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons  NKJV.

Heb 9:15-17 And for this reason He is the Mediator of the new covenant, by means of death, for the redemption of [[their] release by ransom from NWT] the transgressions under the first covenant, that those who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.
 
16 For where there is a testament, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.
 
17 For a testament is in force after men are dead, since it has no power at all while the testator lives. NKJV
