|Bread of life|
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.
