The Lord is My Shepherd


After the sermon last week, some members told me they found the message encouraging to them. Thank the Lord! It is His own handiwork that helps everyone enter into the Truth through the Holy Spirit. May all glory be to God! Here below I share again with everyone the enlightenment gained when I read the Bible. That is, how I discovered in Psalm 23 (a) the myriad names of Jehovah as shown in the Old Testament; and (b) Lord Jesus Christ as shown in the Gospels (in the Book of John, Christ said, “I am” seven times) –
