Lord, give us this bread always!

Bread of life
Jesus fed five thousand men, "Then those men, when they had seen the sign that Jesus did, said, "This is truly the Prophet who is to come into the world." John 6:14.

When they were about to come and take Him by force to make Him king, Jesus departed to a mountain, and on the following day they followed him where he had gone with his disciples.

To cut the long story short, when they found him, "they said to Him, "What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?" Jesus answered and said to them, "This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent." Therefore they said to Him, "What sign will You perform then, that we may see it and believe You? What work will You do? Our fathers ate the manna in the desert; as it is written, 'He gave them bread from heaven to eat.'" Then Jesus said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, Moses did not give you the bread from heaven, but My Father gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world." Then they said to Him, "Lord, give us this bread always." John 6:28-34

My friend, you need true bread from heaven, bread that gives life. The bread of God is He who comes down from heaven, not the false sense of peace the world gives. He said to the Samaritan woman, "Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life" John 4:13-14.

He said to her, If thou knewest the gift of God! Would you say you know it my friend? Do you know what God’s work is? Here He said, "I am the living bread which came down from heaven."

Then they said to Him, "Lord, give us this bread always"

He said, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst."

He said, "For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me." John 6:38. "And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day." John 6:40.

Now the problem is some have seen Him, have received Him, but they do not believe Him. The will of God is that you see/receive the Son and believe in Him, when you do, you will have everlasting life; and the Son will raise you up at the last day. He said, "All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out" John 6:37.

He said, "Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him." John 6:27. 

The food which perishes, is seeking Jesus for signs, and for the pleasures of this world, is seeing Him, but not believing Him. Always remember my friend, "the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, [not prosperity gospel] but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit."

He said, "...My Father gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world." John 6:32-33. Yes, He gives you the true bread from heaven, Christ in you the hope of glory!

It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing, as well as raising false hopes in others or preaching what God has not sent you to preach. He said the words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life, none materialistic.

Sit down, Martha!

The story of Martha and Mary tells us that there are two types of Christians out there; where one is a worshipper and another is a waitperson or server. You can choose what you want to be, that’s to be a worshipper or server. But listen to this before you do; " Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word. But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me." And Jesus answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her. "" Luke 10:38-42. Mary chose the best part, to sit down at his feet and not be worried, frustrated, confused and troubl

Why Lord why me?

Many people ask; why Lord why me? Hezekiah said, " indeed it was for my own peace That I had great bitterness; But You have lovingly delivered my soul from the pit of corruption, For You have cast all my sins behind Your back ," Isaiah 38:17. Did you hear that? All things work for your good. God loves you regardless. However, that you do in the prime of your life impacts the remainder of your years, even hereafter. If you’re born again, you allow the Lord to undertake, but if you’re not born again you certainly deprive your latter years. Hezekiah had boils and was supposed to die because of them. He said, "I shall go to the gates of Sheol" and sin shall make an end of me. But when he repented, God undertook deliverance for him, he said, " What shall I say? He has both spoken to me, And He Himself has done it. I shall walk carefully all my years in the bitterness of my soul, " Isaiah 38:15 knowing that God has restored me. For this reason, he said I’ll prai

How much do people know about you?

Hezekiah answered, " They have seen all that is in my house; there is nothing among my treasures that I have not shown them, " Isaiah 39:4. I can hear Isaiah say, " What? " Then Hezekiah said, it doesn’t matter Isaiah, " They came to me from a far country, from Babylon ." What can they do? Then Isaiah said to Hezekiah, " Hear the word of the LORD of hosts: 'Behold, the days are coming when all that is in your house, and what your fathers have accumulated until this day, shall be carried to Babylon; nothing shall be left,' says the LORD. 'And they shall take away some of your sons who will descend from you, whom you will beget; and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon .'" Isaiah 39:5-7. How much do people know about you my friend? Everything? Then hear the word of the Lord! This reminds me of one president. Someone said of him I don't think he can now be trusted with intelligence briefing, and in the futur
