Eat LIFE, drink LIFE, and speak LIFE, JESUS CHRIST.



Brethren,

Do you enjoy savoring good food?"

Real tasty food?" And if so, is it something you enjoy doing everyday?" Would you agree that eating is one of the greatest pleasures in LIFE?"


I ask this, because Mathew 4:4 assures us that Man is not to live by bread alone. [No!] But is also to be nourished by every WORD that proceeds from The MOUTH Of GOD.


Brethren,

And because GOD knows that we eat every day." HE is also saying, that HE wants to speak to us everyday, and demands that we be interested in what HE has to say!"


And what does HE have to say?"


Well, "HE says, that with HIS WORD, HE gave to each of us, LIFE." And this HE did," so that we would know that The WORD of The LIVING GOD,

is our LIFE!"


For John 1:3-5 assures us, saying: All things were made through HIM, and without HIM nothing was made that was made.

In HIM was LIFE, and The LIFE was the LIGHT of men. And the LIGHT shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.


With that said, Beloved Brethren,

"Do we understand that we are to feed on The "WORD of The LIVING GOD, JESUS CHRIST," Regularly? Everyday? "Do we understand that we are to feed on HIM, Who assures us, in John 6:53-57, saying: "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat The FLESH Of The Son Of man and drink HIS BLOOD, you have no LIFE in you.

Whoever eats MY FLESH and drinks MY BLOOD has Eternal LIFE, and I will raise HIM up at the last day.

For MY FLESH is food indeed, and MY BLOOD is drink indeed. [Now consider Who we are to feed on, in order to "abide" in The LORD]: he who eats MY FLESH and drinks MY BLOOD abides in ME, and I in him.

As The LIVING FATHER sent ME, and I live because of The FATHER, so he who feeds on ME will live because of ME.


Brethren,

Do you recall our LORD giving us this instruction from John 15:4, saying: Abide in ME, and I in you. As the Branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in The VINE, neither can you, unless you abide in ME.


["Now consider this,

GOD, with HIS WORD gave to each of us LIFE." So we would know to daily feed on HIM, Who is, our LIFE." Yes, on HIM, Whom the prophet Jeremiah spoke of, when in Jeremiah 15:16, he said: YOUR WORDS were found

and I ate them,

And YOUR WORD was to

me the rejoicing of my heart;

For I am called by YOUR NAME,

O LORD GOD of hosts.


Brethren,

We are Christians." Followers of CHRIST."

Our LORD, Who says in John 10:27

MY sheep here MY VOICE, and I know them, and they follow ME.


Yes, we follow HIM, knowing that it is HE Who says in John 14:6,: I AM The WAY, The TRUTH, and The LIFE; no one comes to The FATHER except by ME.


Yes, it is HE, Beloved, Whose "BODY" was bruised, battered, and broken, so that we would be FAITHFUL to HIM, and repay HIM, with the same token.


For in HIS great LOVE for us, HE paid for our sins, and took them all away." So that we wouldn’t pay for them in a place called Hell one day!"


Right!"

So that we who Believe in HIS "finished work" of The Cross, would know to daily feed on HIM, Who speaks to us in The BIBLE, and wants to be our BOSS.

HE wants us to do, HIS will, and no longer, our own." Yes, to do the will of HIM, Who instructs us in Mathew 4:4, by saying: Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every WORD that proceeds from The MOUTH Of GOD."

Yes, for if JESUS CHRIST, "in TRUTH," is our LORD?"

We will not to live by "Bread alone!"

Right! "Not by food alone."

But we will daily feed on HIM Who reigns, and Who will sit as KING upon a THRONE."


Yes, we will daily feed on HIM Who assures us in John 6:53, saying: "Most assuredly, I say to you, Unless you eat The FLESH Of The Son Of Man and drink HIS BLOOD, you have no LIFE in you.


Yes, we who LOVE LIFE, and wish to see good days.

Will daily feed on HIM, Who instructs husband's to LOVE our wives. Yes, even as HE has LOVED us, "the Church,"

and gave HIMSELF for us.


For HE is purifying for HIMSELF a Church.

Ephesians 5:26 assures a of it, saying: That HE might SANCTIFY and CLEANSE her with the washing of water by The WORD.


JESUS CHRIST, being The WORD of The LIVING GOD, "HIMSELF."

Is the same yesterday, today, and FOREVER.

It is HE, Who is the same WORD Who assured Peter in John 13:6-7 when Peter asked: "LORD, are YOU washing my feet?"

JESUS answered and said to him, "What I AM doing, you do not understand now, but you will know after this."


[With that said,"

Are we each aware that we are being washed by "The WORD" Of The LIVING GOD, when we sit to feed on The TRUTH of The SCRIPTURES?"

Yes? And do we each consider that in this world of sin that we live in, "We need GOD'S washing everyday?"


Consider this,

When we sit at our "LORD'S Feet,"

and open up The BIBLE, to read."

Do we hear HIM speak to us?"


Do we hear "The WORD" Of The LIVING GOD, saying: MY sheep hear MY VOICE, and I know them, and they follow ME.

Yes?"

We follow HIM Whom we hear, and have come to know, and LOVE so dear."


We LOVE HIM, because HE first LOVED us, and proved how much HE LOVES us, when HE laid down HIS LIFE for us, and took our sins away." And GOD'S "WORD" assures us that greater LOVE has no one, than HE Who laid down HIS LIFE for us, whom HE calls, friends."


In John 1:29, John the Baptist, said: "Behold, The LAMB Of GOD," Who takes away the sin of the world.


Brethren,

The LAMB Of GOD has paid for the sin of the world."

And now GOD has called each of us, to make The GRACE of GOD known to all, that it might be unfurled." Yes, that it might reach everyone!"


For we are to tell everyone, of the invitation to "The Great Supper" that GOD is giving for HIS Son.

Consider how Luke 14:16-24 elaborates, saying🤔: "A certain man gave a Great Supper and invited many, and sent HIS servant at supper time to say to those who were invited, 'Come, for all things are now ready." But they all with one accord began to make excuses. [Yes, "Lame excuses!"] The first said to HIM, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must go see it.

[Doesn't one first examine the piece of ground, and then buy it?] I ask you to have me excused.' And another said, 'I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I am going to test them. [Again, "Doesn't one first test them to see if they are in good working condition? Then purchase the oxen?" Well, he also requested, saying]: I ask YOU to have me excused.' Still another said, 'I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.'

So that servant came and reported these things to his MASTER.

Then, The MASTER of the house, being angry, said to HIS servant, 'Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in here the poor and the maimed and the lame and the blind.'

And the servant said, 'MASTER, it is done as YOU commanded, and still there is room.' Then The MASTER said to the servant, 'Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that MY House may be filled. For I say to you that none of those men who were invited shall taste MY supper.' "

Brethren,

If we wish to taste of our LORD'S supper, we must do, as HE instructs us to do.

We must begin our day's by feasting on The WORD of The LIVING GOD." Yes, feasting on HIM, Who is The WORD, and wants us to honor HIM, by our obedience to share the Good News of HIS finished work of The Cross. HE wants us to be found in HIM."

Yes, found in obedience to HIM.

The apostle Paul, knowing the importance of being found in CHRIST," wrote these WORDS from Philippians 3:8-11

Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of CHRIST JESUS my LORD, for Whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain CHRIST and be found in HIM, not having my own RIGHTEOUSNESS, which is from the law, but that which is through FAITH in CHRIST, the RIGHTEOUSNESS which is from GOD by FAITH; that I may know HIM and the POWER of HIS RESURRECTION, and the fellowship of HIS sufferings, being conformed to HIS death, if, by any means, I may attain to the RESURRECTION from the dead.


Brethren,

As we daily "Take up our Cross," and feed on HIM, Who is "The WORD, and our BOSS." We feast on HIM

Who lifted up HIS VOICE, and said in Mathew 26:26 : “Take, eat;

this is MY BODY.”


Yes, we are feeding on HIM, Who brings us great joy. Consider Jeremiah 15:16 🤔 YOUR WORDS were found and I ate them,

And YOUR WORD was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart; For I am called by YOUR NAME, O LORD GOD of hosts.


Brethren,

We are called Christians. Yes, "CHRIST followers, who feed on The Bread of LIFE every single day." We break open The Bread of LIFE, and consume GOD'S TRUTH, everyday. We daily break Bread, by feeding on JESUS CHRIST, The WORD of The LIVING GOD.


And when The Bread of LIFE became FLESH, breaking bread for the Jews, was a traditional part of "PASSOVER = what many today, call Easter."

But when The LORD added: “this is MY BODY,” that was a striking departure from the familiar liturgy." So when the disciples heard it, they must've been clueless! But later, as The LORD assured Peter, the meaning became clear to them.

"Even as I pray today, Beloved Brethren, that "the meaning" becomes clear to each of us.


For when The LORD instructed Peter, to sit down, that HE would "wash his feet." Peter didn't understand."


And in John 13:7 The LORD, makes it absolutely clear by saying: "What I AM doing, you do not understand now, but you will know after this.


So I ask you, Beloved Brethren,

Do we know why we need to be washed everyday?" And why we are not to live by Bread Alone?


Consider this,

JESUS was born in "Bethlehem," which means, “house of Bread."

GOD'S WORD became FLESH, and HE was then laid in a manger, "a feeding trough!" And when HE got older, and began HIS Ministry," HE said, “I AM The LIVING BREAD" which came down from HEAVEN.

And later, Luke 24:25-31 reveals that when The LORD accompanied two disciples who were traveling on the road to Emmaus." HE said to them, after their FAITH "wavered":

"O foolish ones, and slow of heart to Believe in all that the prophets have spoken!

Ought not The CHRIST to have suffered these things and to enter HIS GLORY?" And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, HE expounded to them in all The SCRIPTURES the things concerning HIMSELF. Then they drew near to the village where they were going, and HE indicated that HE would have gone farther. But they constrained HIM, saying, "Abide with us, for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent." And HE went in to stay with them. Now it came to pass, as HE sat at the table with them, that HE took the bread, Blessed and broke it, and gave it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they knew HIM; and HE vanished from their sight.


[Brethren,

Because our LORD is not willing that any should perish.


"HE wants all to know HIM."


So HIS instruction to The BODY of CHRIST, is, "Not to live by Bread Alone." [Not by food alone!] But by every WORD that proceeds from The MOUTH Of GOD.


The LORD wants all to know HIM. Yes, all to know The TRUTH!"

For HE wants everyone, to be made free of the deception of the devil. Yes, free even of all condemnation."


For Romans 8:1 assures us, saying: There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in CHRIST JESUS, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to The SPIRIT."


[According to "The SPIRIT?

Yes,

Beloved Brethren, for when we walk agreeing with The WORD of The LIVING GOD.

We walk according to HIS SPIRIT.


"Yes, The SPIRIT that created everything, and gave to each of us, LIFE."

John 6:63-64 amplifies, saying: 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."

For JESUS knew from the beginning who they were who did not Believe, and who would betray HIM.


Brethren,

That's an eye-opening piece of SCRIPTURE,👁 wouldn't you say?"

The LORD knows all things!"

HE knows those who will betray HIM."

Yet, HE is not willing that any should perish!"


So HE speaks these WORDS from John 6:51 drawing attention to HIMSELF, saying": If anyone eats of This BREAD, he will live FOREVER; and The BREAD that I shall give is MY FLESH.”


HIS "FLESH?"


Yes, at The Cross, Beloved Brethren, our LORD laid down HIS LIFE for us, and suffered greatly, in HIS FLESH!"✝️


Yes, the same "FLESH" that HE instructs us to feed on, when HE says in John 6:53-54

Most assuredly, I say to you,

unless you eat The FLESH Of The Son of Man and drink HIS BLOOD, you have no LIFE in you. Whoever eats MY FLESH and drinks MY BLOOD has Eternal LIFE, and I will raise HIM up at the last day.


Brethren,

When we read on The WORD of The LIVING GOD, we feed on HIS "FLESH." On The TRUTH!" For HE laid down HIS FLESH for us, in TRUTH!"

And when we recieve GOD'S WORD, as TRUTH."

We drink in, "HIS BLOOD."

Thus, we live daily feeding on The WORD of The LIVING GOD, JESUS CHRIST.


For we are among those whom The prophet Micah spoke of in chapter 5:2,

When the prophet said that One born in Bethlehem, [Meaning, "House of Bread"], would rule over Israel.


Yes, HE rules over us, Beloved Brethren, because we have been grafted into Israel!"


And not until The WORD of The LIVING GOD, ruled over us, did the uniqueness of GOD’S KINGDOM, become practical for us.


For each of us, Beloved, learned that our LORD’S rule is not "imposed" upon anyone; but is imparted only to those who accept HIM, as LORD." And because we honor our LORD, we delight ourselves in doing HIS will."


For before we Believed GOD, and embraced HIS finished work of The Cross."

We were each dead in our trespasses and sins. Yes, we were enemies of GOD!"


And because we were enemies,

we could by no means, approach HIM. Right!"

We could not approach HIS THRONE of GRACE, because we had no confidence in "JESUS," Who on The Cross "took our place."


Only after Trusting JESUS CHRIST," The "WORD of The LIVING GOD."

Did our REDEMPTION, have its fulfillment." Yes, our Trust in GOD'S WORD has given us everything, including a new "citizenship."

For Philippians 3:20 has this to say: For our citizenship is in HEAVEN, from which we also eagerly wait for The SAVIOR, The LORD JESUS CHRIST.


["Our SAVIOR," Beloved Brethren,

because HE is, our LORD."

For if HE was not our LORD?

"How then, could HE be," our SAVIOR?"


So I praise GOD, Beloved, that JESUS is, our LORD!"

And as we think of HEAVEN, and Bethlehem’s manger. We praise The MIGHTY NAME of JESUS, that to us, HE is not a stranger!"

But we know HIM, and daily seek HIM, to feed on HIM.


We “eat of HIM," Who is "The BREAD” Of LIFE." For we know that unless one eats The FLESH Of The Son Of Man and drink HIS BLOOD, they have no LIFE in them.


[So we Eat LIFE, drink LIFE, and speak LIFE, by preaching The GOSPEL of the "finished work" of The Cross of CHRIST."


JESUS
