People Disagree That Jesus Is From Heaven

John 6:41-42 "The Jews began to grumble about Him (Jesus) saying He was the Bread of Life." 
John 6:43-48  "Jesus answered, 'Stop  your grumbling 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 (The Rapture). It is written in the Prophets, they will be taught by GOD. Everyone who listens to the Father and learns from Him comes to Me. No one has seen the Father except Him Who comes from the Father, only He has seen the Father (that is Jesus.) I tell you the truth, he who believes has everlasting life. I AM the Bread of Life...I AM the Living Bread of Life that came down from heaven. Anyone who eats of this bread will live forever." To eat living bread means to accept Christ Jesus into our lives and become united with Him (through the entering of the Holy Spirit.) We are united in Christ in two ways: 1. by believing in His death (the sacrifice of His flesh and shedding of His blood for our sins) and resurrection and 2. by devoting ourselves to living as He requires, depending on His teaching for guidance, and trusting in the Holy Spirit for power. The apostle Paul uses the imagery of flesh and blood in taking communion (I Corinthians 11:23-26)  (Bible commentary)

Jesus Christ alone is the only acceptable sacrifice for mankind, because He is Almighty GOD in the flesh. Mankind is fallen and there is no "good" that any man/woman can do in and of himself/herself to make up for it. "All man's righteousness is as filthy rags before Holy GOD." (Isaiah 64:6) "There is no (man) righteous, no not one." (Romans 3:10) Only by believing what Jesus did for us on the Cross will take away every sin. There is no other way but the Way of the Cross. "He (she) who has ears, let him/her hear what the Spirit says to the churches." (Revelation 2:7)

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!
