    Brethren let us now be serious as we are waiting for swift coming kingdom,prayerful and earnestly search for truth in the shepherd’s rod,complying with every reform without a moment’s delay and searching for true doctrine to be in true position as we know that there are now unauthorized shepherds herding the sheep,let’s pray before God to show us the authorized one.

  • Bro. Mkhululi

    Greetings brethren, it seems the zip file is not compatible with my Windows 8. Can you help?

    • lynne bernasky

      you have to have the Folio Program which to my knowledge is the only bought and only compatible program which makes the Rod searchable. You can buy it on one of Ellen Whites writings site. You download her writings which is run by the Folio program. Peace friend in Jesus. it’s 15.00 once you download this then you can download the Shepherd Rod here… This is to the best of my knowledge. If you have her CD then you have the Folio program…

  • Mathieu wise

    I thank you for the great work done by the publishes of Shepherd’s rod for it has revealed the facts of God’s work to be accomplished soon.

    “Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of My pasture! . . . Behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings.” “Howl, ye shepherds, and cry; and wallow yourselves in the ashes, ye principal of the flock: for your days for slaughter and of your dispersions are accomplished; . . . and the shepherds shall have no way to flee, nor the principal of the flock to escape.” Jeremiah 23:1, 2; 25:34, 35, margin. {GC 655.2}
    Ministers and people see that they have not sustained the right relation to God. They see that they have rebelled against the Author of all just and righteous law. The setting aside of the divine precepts gave rise to thousands of springs of evil, discord, hatred, iniquity, until the earth became one vast field of strife, one sink of corruption.

    • The Davidian

      Amen. The extract proves the absolute necessity of the foretold “One Shepherd’s Organization” which is to replace the currently existing multiple shepherds’ organizations, both in (so-called) “Davidia” and in Laodicea. Pursuant to Ezek. 34 and 2TG No. 2. Blessed new week!

  • Dr. E. Cox

    Do you have the Sheperds Rod in kindle format (MOBI), or know where I could get it?

    Thank you

    • The Davidian

      A limited number of titles have been published on the Amazon Kindle and Apple iBooks stores:
      We have planned to begin (or resume) the digital publishing process in earnest next month (March, 2017), and have the English portion completed within 3 months, the Lord’s willing. French, Dutch, Spanish and Indonesian will follow shortly thereafter; please keep checking for updates.
      FYI, Amazon is the only eBook retailer to restrict the ability of authors and publishers to price at FREE. For that reason, we shall also place a copy of the eBooks on this website as we update them on the respective stores.
      ~~You’re quite welcome!

  • Howard Howe

    Hi Brethren,
    You are doing a great work in making the Shepherd’s Rod Literature available for free. I realized the type of audience you are reaching is some what limited, but the chance of reaching a wider audience is also limited. However, thanks be to God, this effort is progressing. May the Lord reward your efforts to make His name glorious.

  • japhet

    HI BRETHREN, MY QUESTION IS; WHY DON’T WE KEEP FEASTS. According to ACTS 20: 6-7 Paul kept the feast of unleavened bread. He also kept the PENTECOST FEAST( AA 391). why would paul keep the pentecost feast if it was nailed to the cross. HELP. Bro. JAPHET

    • The Davidian

      2TG37: 14.3: Broadly speaking, the law of Moses consists of three parts. The first is the Ceremonial law, the law of the temple — the sacrificial law. This law, of course, we today must not observe, except in antitype, for it foreshadowed things to come, particularly Christ’s first advent. Thus it is that if we had lived in Old Testament times and had failed to comply with the sacrificial law and system of that day, we would thereby have demonstrated unbelief in Christ, Who was to come. But since we are living in the Christian era, if we should now observe the typical sacrificial law and system, we should thereby demonstrate unbelief in Christ, Who has come.

      2TG37: 15.1: And so, as this law was nailed to the cross (Col. 2:14), we need not, and must not, observe it now.

  • Dr. E. Cox

    Greetings again my Dear Bro,

    As you have started to make the Mobi files available on Amazon, would there be any chance of you adding them as a download resource from this site as others and myself could then add it directly to the Kindle device? This would be much appreciated by others and myself and would imagine. You could also email it to me directly if that would also suit you.

    God bless you.

    Dr. E. Cox

    • The Davidian

      Dear Dr. E Cox,
      Yes. If God so wills, we shall make them available next Thursday. The Primary Navigation will be updated accordingly.
      Thanks, and God bless

    I am not able to download the shepherd’s rod folio views to my window 7 laptop. Please help… I did have it and it stop working and I cannot get it to reload…. Help…. I feel as though I lost my best friend.

    Thank you

    • Denis Mwaba

      @Judy Mueller,

      Sorry for losing your best friend, But I am sure he may be near actually. The windows 7 laptop must be able to download the folio Shepherd’s Rod if you click the download on this sight. The best way to open it is to install the EGW writings Folio application of the Spirit of Prophecy, Then use the same to open even the Shepherd’s Rod folio. Hope it is easy for you to find the EGW software.

      be blessed.

      • The Davidian

        Thank you very much Br. Denis,

    why is it not working on my windows 10? i have already installed EGW folio as required but im still having hard time to open it, whenever i tried to open it, it always says, no file found or not compatible to this device. what should i do? need big help here brothers and sisters. thank you!

    • The Davidian

      Please follow the step by step instructions in the “Windows” section above. If, after doing that, you still cannot open the SRod, your download may be incomplete; try downloading the file again, making sure that the dowloaded file is 14.5 MB, and the resultant SRod.nfo file is 25MB after unzipping (approx. sizes, may be more or less – depending on your system) . If it still does not work, we can do a remote installation through TeamViewer.
      God bless.

  • Simon Mwandu
