Jesus is the Bread of Life!
Believing on and in Him, on the finished work at the cross is sustenance for the mind, body, soul and spirit! Is your mind, body, soul or spirit hungry or thirsty? Feed on the Bread of Life who is Jesus.
And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.”
His word which never comes back void but goes out and accomplishes that to which it was sent ( Isaiah 55:11). Feed on His Word and it will fill you up and satisfy you both physically as well as spiritually. How does this happen? It doesn’t seem that in the nature of the natural to make sense? That a word from God in heaven brought to earth by His Son Jesus in a fully human body could result in never being hungry or thirsty again. These murmuring questions in our hearts, minds, spirits and souls are no different than the questions raised to Jesus in His time on earth.
The Jews then complained about Him, because He said, “I am the bread which came down from heaven.” And they said, “Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How is it then that He says, I have come down from heaven?
Hunger and Thirst in the Spirit
The people were complaining and later began murmuring because they were seeking the truth and did not want to believe a lie. They saw Jesus in the “natural” and began asking questions on the origin of his family on earth. This was of course natural questioning because Mary bore Him and Joseph stepped into the place of a father figure on earth. But the truth is the same for us as it was for Jesus. We are born on earth to earthly parents but it is the Father in Heaven who gives life and we belong to His family. There is a certain amount of truth in the “natural” but there is a “supernatural” working itself out on the earth in the Spirit as well. If all we know is of the natural then we might miss the fullness of the truth in the supernatural spirit of God. We hunger and thirst in the natural but there is a spiritual nature about us that can only be fed, nourished and quenched by God Himself. Our insatiable need to be loved and to live significant lives is because our Father in heaven built us this way. So we can love each other as we receive His thirst quenching love whenever we are in need.
Natural Earthly Parents
Where there are earthly parents who may fail us; our supernatural heavenly Father sent His Son to deliver the message of His great love and devotion for all who would believe and receive that Jesus died in our place! That He died so that all our sin was forgiven and cast away forever! The Father sent the Son to feed His thirsty, hungry children so that they would not be deceived by what they see on the earth that might naturally cause them to believe that they were somehow unloved. The earth can be a hard place and filled with mixed messages that lack peace, mercy and love. But the supernatural truth of the Father is never void of these things and is always ready to cast doubt on the lies and replace with His Word of truth.
IS YOUR FATHER DRAWING YOU?
Jesus therefore answered and said to them, “Do not murmur among yourselves. No one can come to me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day. It is written in the prophets ‘And they shall all be taught by God’. Therefore everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to Me.
It is the Father in heaven who sent the Son Jesus to be His Word in natural body form. This was a form that human beings could understand and touch unlike the Father who was of Spirit. The Father loves you! He loves His children as He loves His Son Jesus and it is His Will for all His children to know Him and receive His Love through His Son Jesus.
That whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.
2 Peter 3:9
The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.
This means to me that the Father’s will is that all should come to His Son and believe His message of salvation. Turn away (repent) from darkness and lies and come into the light and truth of the Word of God. The truth that no matter what form of father you have had on earth; the heavenly Father above loves you and wants you to be with Him for eternity. He sent His Son Jesus, your brother, to deliver the message of His grace to earth from Our Father’s House in heaven.
As the living Father sent me, I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me. This is the bread which came down from heaven – not as your fathers ate the manna, and are dead. He who eats this bread will live forever.
YOUR FATHER LOVES YOU!
This Father in heaven who loves you as His own child calls you with the invitation of the message of His Son Jesus in the way of His Word in the Bible. This Word is left for all men to read and believe, if they will. The Father draws them to Jesus to teach them about the truth of our very being on earth. This is the Father’s will!
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.
The bread of life is Jesus. The bread of life is God’s Word. And these are one in the same!
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the word was God.
Jesus is the Word of God. He is written of in the Bible. Jesus is the Bread of Life for all to be nourished and fed with full abundant satisfaction. This bread is both natural in bodily form in Jesus and in Spirit of Jesus in the Father who gives all life! So when we eat this bread, this word of truth and receive and believe we have eternal life. We may die on earth but our spirit never will. And on the last day our body will be raised as well. Our supernatural God made all heaven and earth and all life. He created the natural laws of man we see on earth. His supernatural principals are also at work and available to all who will eat of this bread of truth on earth as it is in heaven!
It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. But there are some of you who do not believe.
Will you eat from the Bread of Life? Will You receive Him today?
Thank You Jesus for delivering the message of grace from our Father in heaven to our hearts on earth! We believe that you died in our place so that our sin is forgiven as far as the East is from the West. We repent and turn away from all evil and all things that are not of You! Nothing we have done can stop us from receiving forgiveness and love from You our Poppa! We receive you as our Father and receive your love through faith by way of Jesus. Fill us with your love, light and joy in Your supernatural Ways. Thank You for Your love and for this family of Christ. In Jesus Blessed Name above all Names. Amen. Amen. and Halleluiah!
