Jesus is the True Bread from Heaven

John 6:35-40, "Jesus declared, "I Am the Bread of Life. He who comes to Me will never go hungry and he who believes in Me will never go thirsty. But I have told you, you have seen Me and still you do not believe. All that the Father gives to Me will come to Me, and whoever comes to Me I will never drive away. For I have come down from heaven not to do My will but to do the will of Him Who sent Me. And this is the will of Him Who sent Me, that I shall lose none of all that He has given Me, but raise them up at the last day (the Rapture). For My Father's will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in Him shall have eternal life, and I WILL RAISE HIM UP AT THE LAST DAY!" The Bread of Life is Jesus Christ and Him crucified for our sins. The Rapture is coming! Whether those who have died in Christ already or we who are still alive, we will be changed in a moment, the twinkling of an eye and rise to meet Him in the air and forevermore we will be with our Almighty GOD in our new resurrected bodies to never hunger, thirst, or sin again! (1 Corinthians 15: 51-55) For this fallen world will no longer have influence over us.

Before creation, GOD had His chosen from Israel and from His Church written in His Lamb's Book of Life! (Ephesians 1:4-5) His sheep hears His voice and (we) know Him! (John 10:4) You can know Him too. Recognize you are a sinner, confess your sin to Him and ask Him to come into your heart, and He will!!!

Jesus Feeds 5000 From Five Loaves and Two Fish

John 6:9, Andrew spoke up saying, "Here is a boy with five barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they go among so many?" Vs 10, "Jesus said, 'Have the people sit down.' Vs 11, "Jesus then took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed to those who were seated. He did the same with the fish. Vs 12, "When they had all had enough to eat, He said to His disciples, 'Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted.' Vs. 13, "So they gathered them and filled 12 baskets with the pieces of barley loaves left over..." Vs 14, "After the people saw the miraculous sign that Jesus did, they began to say, 'Surely this is the Prophet Who is to come into the world.'" Vs 15, "Jesus knowing their intent withdrew to a mountain to Himself."

Miracles! The miracle of creation! GOD holds the entire universe in His hand, yet He resides in the soul of each believer! He controls every aspect of every atom, for He created them all! Scientist have discovered a violently vibrating mesh inside of each atom and are baffled at why the atom in and of itself doesn't explode! The LORD GOD holds everything together by His very Word! One Day, He is going to let go of His control and every single atom in the universe is going to explode. The atomic bomb is the splitting of ONE atom! Just imagine every single atom in the universe exploding. In 2 Peter 3:10, "The heavens (universe) will disappear with a roar; the elements (that is everything in the universe) will be destroyed by fire..." Verse 12 says, "...the elements will melt with fervent heat!" When this occurs, John in the Book of Revelation says in chapter 21:1, "Then I saw a New Heaven and New Earth for the (present) first heaven and first earth had passed away..." 

Are you going to be apart of Almighty GOD's New Heaven and New Earth? You can be! Jesus Christ promises all who believe in His salvation for them will be apart of this New Existence which will be for eternity! No more tears, no more sorrow, no more sickness, no more aging - youth forever, no more worries or concerns. There will only be peace, joy, happiness, singing, praise, glory, and honor! Read the Book! Especially Revelation chapters 21, 22!

Jesus Supports His Claim

John 5:36-47, Jesus shares, "I have a testimony weightier than that of John. For the very work that the Father has given Mr to finish, which I am doing, testifies that the Father has sent Me. You have never heard His voice nor seen His form, nor does His word dwell in you, for you do not believe the One Who sent Me. You think (by studying the Scriptures) you possess eternal life. These Scriptures testify of Me yet you refuse to come to Me to have life...You do not have the Love of GOD in your hearts. I have come in My Father's Name and you do not accept Me, but if someone else comes in his own name, you will accept him...If you believed Moses, you would believe Me, for he wrote about Me. Since you don't believe him, how will you believe Me?" There is so much of the Old Testament that speaks of Jesus the Messiah, yet they would not believe it, even more so not believing Jesus Who was and is the fulfillment of His 1st coming to save mankind from sin! GOD in the Flesh right in front of them and they would not believe Him. There is a time in the future when He will be ruling from Jerusalem and at the end of that time, there will again be many who will deny His very GODLY presence right before their eyes! Are you one of these who refuse to believe that Jesus is the Christ sent first to be the sacrifice for your sins, secondly to be your King, and thirdly to be your salvation for all eternity? This life is but the blink of an eye compared to an eternal forever that you have to decide here and now to accept Jesus' free gift of salvation.

"Praise GOD from Whom all blessings flow!" He gave me, my property, and house protection from Hurricane Matthew! GOD is Good all the time! He answers prayer. He gives His Love, care, protection, provision, and salvation!

Jesus Claims To Be the Son of GOD

John 5:17-30, "Jesus said to them (the Jews that persecuted Him for healing on the Sabbath), 'My Father is always at work to this very day and I too am working.' All the more they wanted to kill Him for calling Himself equal with GOD. Jesus gave them this answer, 'I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by Himself, He can only do what He sees the Father doing, whatever the Father does, the Son also does. As the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son gives life to whom He is pleased to give it. The Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son that all may honor the Son as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father Who sent the Son. He who hears My Word and believes Him Who sent Me has eternal life and will not be condemned...there is a time coming when all who are in their graves will hear His (Jesus) voice and come out - those who have done good will rise to live (eternally) and those who have done evil will rise to be condemned (eternally)...
My judgment is just, for I seek not to please Myself, but the Father Who sent Me.' "

There are two judgments. Those who are saved through Jesus Christ's sacrifice on the Cross for their sins - The Judgment Seat of Christ. (Romans 14:10-11) And, those who have rejected Jesus Christ's sacrifice for their sins - The Great White Throne Judgment. (Revelation 20:11)  The saved are judged for the deeds they have done for Christ. The lost are judged for their sins. The saved are judged from the Book of Life and the lost are judged from the books where their every thought, word, and deed is listed! Revelation 20:11-15, "Then I saw a great white throne and Him (Jesus) Who was seated on it. Earth and sky fled from His presence and there was no place for them. I saw the dead (lost) great and small standing before the throne and the books were opened. Another Book was opened which is the Book of Life. The dead (lost) were judged according to what they had done and was recorded in the books . Each person was judged to what he had done (in the flesh). Death and Hades were thrown into the Lake of Fire which is the second death (an everlasting existence.) If anyone's name was not found written in the Book of Life he/she was throne into the Lake of Fire."  The thermal dynamics of eternity does not work on the premise of this fallen universe. People will suffer in a brimstone fire like that of a volcano's lava flow, yet their flesh will not be consumed! There, fire does not give light! For the Bible teaches they will be in outer darkness where there will be gnashing of teeth! (Matthew 8:12) Yet, they can look up into heaven and see what they could have had! (Luke 16:22-24). 

Do you know Jesus' salvation and forgiveness of your sins? Ask Him for the forgiveness of your sins and He will give you salvation and the Holy Spirit will come in and begin His leading, guiding, and directing in your life!

Jesus Heals a Man By a Pool

John 5:1-15, (verse 5), "A man who had been an invalid for 35 years (lay by the pool.) (Verse 6), When Jesus saw him...He asked him, 'Do you want to get well?" (Verse 7), The invalid replied, 'Sir, I have no one to help me into the pool.' (Verse 8), Jesus said to him, 'Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.' (Verse 9), At once the man was cured; he picked up his mat and walked. It was the Sabbath. The Jews said to the man, 'It is the Sabbath; the law forbids you to carry your mat.' (Verse 14-15), Jesus later found the (healed) man at the Temple and said to him, 'See, you are well again. Stop sinning or something worse will happen to you.' The man went away and told the Jews it was Jesus Who had made him well."

No matter what the affliction, we believers are to proclaim the LORD for His healing! Those who don't receive healing are still to proclaim the LORD. The journey He has for those lives have a greater purpose to glorify Almighty GOD and will receive His greater reward in heaven! They are referred to in the Bible as Crowns. (1 Corinthians 9:25) One Day there will be no more affliction, pain, disease, sorrow, or death. For in heaven there is nothing that defiles! (Revelation 21:27)

Jesus Heals By His Spoken Word

John 4:46-53, "While Jesus was in Galilee, there was a certain royal official whose son lay sick at Capernaum. When he heard Jesus had arrived, he went and begged Jesus to come and heal his son, who was close to death. Jesus told him, 'Unless you people see miraculous signs and wonders, you will never believe.' The royal official said, 'Sir, come down before my child dies.' Jesus replied, 'You may go. Your son will live.' The man took Jesus at his word and went home. On the way, his servant met him and told him his son lives! When he inquired when his son got better, he was told yesterday at the seventh hour, the exact time Jesus said, 'Your son will live.' So he and all his whole household believed (in Jesus)."

The very Power of Jesus' Word is available even today. His written Word, the Bible's scriptures teaches in Matthew 7:8, "For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds and to him who knocks, the door will be opened." Persist in pursuing GOD. Don't make halfhearted requests. Ask, believing in your heart! In Philippians 4:19, GOD promises those who belong to Him, "...GOD will meet all your needs according to His riches in Christ Jesus."

In His Own Country

John 4:43-45, "After two days, He left for Galilee. Now Jesus Himself had pointed out that a prophet has no honor in his own country. When He arrived in Galilee, the Galileans welcomed Him. They had seen all that He had done in Jerusalem at the Passover Feast, for they also had been there." When Jesus spoke to those He grew up around, many were astonished at His claims of being the Son of GOD! Many throughout history who have accepted Christ as their Savior have had the same rejection from those they knew all their lives who were not Christians. Those who do not know Jesus Christ think it to be foolishness (1 Corinthians 1:18). They have no basis to which they can compare. You can know Jesus Christ and His salvation for you. Come to Him in repentance of your sins and He will forgive you. The Holy Spirit will verify in your soul your salvation in Christ Jesus. Come to Him today and receive your reassurance for eternity!
