JESUS THE BREAD OF LIFE – part V

Dear Lord, open the heart of men and women to Jesus Christ those that seek rest … In Jesus name Amen.

WALKING THROUGH THE BOOK OF JOHN CHAPTER 6

It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.- John 6:63

JESUS WAITS FOR HIS BRIDE

Jesus said to the disciples the words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. They are eternal, ever revealing to the heart of man by the wonderful Teacher Holy Spirit the nature, acts and glory of God. Ever making the bride love God more and more. Ever preparing her for Him. Even in Heaven we learn of the great revelations of God. If you do not desire the revelation of Jesus in your life, your walk with Him is very dry and boring. When you walk without Him, you desire always teachers for yourself, yet unable to learn from God the Holy Spirit. But there are some of you WHO DO NOT BELIEVE.

WHY THE CROSS ? 

In the Body of Christ, there are many, who do not believe in carrying the cross, who do not speak of the Holy Blood and of the Lamb of God. To them it is a DUTY and want to put God in a BOX. Yet, He will not get into it. Thus, it is a dead meeting with no overflow of Joy, love and no willingness to suffer for Christ. No desire for the Lord in their midst. No desire for the Fire of God, no desire for fresh revelation of Jesus. They don’t want disturbance, they don’t want to awaken their dead – spirit, they don’t expect healing, preachers don’t want to speak on healing, miracles. Poor and needy are kept OUT.

Why is the heart living without compassion for those outside?

How sad, yet Jesus already knew from the beginning who were the people who did not believe and would betray Him. He knows the heart of man, He tests man, HE sees who is it who wants and desires God. Yet, He knows those that will walk away.

But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the LORD does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart – 1 Sam 16:7 .

Even the Prophet Samuel was taken by the beauty of the son of Jesse, Eliab. Thought this is one whom the Lord has anointed! Yet, God gave him a new revelation that God does not see man as man does. He sees the heart. He sees what is in the heart of Man.

IN THE HEART OF MAN IS DEEP SECRETS

Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. – Matt 12:34

A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. – Matt 12:35

For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies. – Matt 15:19/ and He said, “What comes out of a man, that defiles a man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness – Mark 7:20-22.

But if all prophesy, and an unbeliever or an uninformed person comes in, he is convinced by all, he is convicted by all. And thus the secrets of his heart are revealed; and so, falling down on his face, he will worship God and report that God is truly among you. – 1 Corin 14:24-25

TAKING THE CALL

Then Jesus said, “Therefore I have said to you that no one can come to Me unless it has been granted to him by My Father. From that time many of His disciples went back and walked with Him no more.

Why does man not want to follow the One who made him? He has come, prepared the way for us. We just have to believe. Yet, some will deny Him, some refuse to walk with Him, Do you understand ? these disciples walked with Jesus, they sat there engrossed in His teachings in the synagogue. Many today may have a believer label … the Lord is not with them. For they have refused His WORD. His WORD IS LIFE. They refuse instructions, they refuse to forgive, to leave what He asks, They make fun of workings of Holy Spirit, they laugh at the power of God, they laugh at the shakings that one experience under the anointing of God. They laugh at prophets, they laugh at the poor and needy, the messengers of God, His hearts grieve to see them so hardened in heart.

It GRIEVES GOD to see them in pride. But if you will not hear it, My soul will weep in secret for your pride; My eyes will weep bitterly And run down with tears, Because the LORD’s flock has been taken captive. – Jere 13: 17

For Pride destroys our spiritual walk in Christ. Pride exists when we do not bow to God’s instructions to life, He saved us to follow Him in everything. When you allow disobedience in your life, you become slaves of satan. He sits on you and takes you to your destruction, whereas God waits until you surrender and leads you to life eternal making this journey on earth a beautiful time with Him and His people.

Then Jesus asked to the twelve , Jesus gets even more intimate now and asks those that He hand-picked to follow Him. Do you also want to go away? I wonder at the condition  of the heart of dear Jesus as He asked this question, do you also want to go away?  Do you also desire Me no more, do you also want to go away from Me?

THE CRY FROM PETER’S HEART 

LORD, YOU HAVE THE WORDS OF ETERNAL LIFE

But Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. Also we have come to believe and know that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God. Thank God for the revelation that God gives to our heart to know whom we follow is God Almighty, the Shepherd of our soul. Yet after all this, Simon Peter cried to the Lord Jesus, Lord to whom shall we go? Where can we go – we have come to know that You carry life within you for You are Life and light of men. You have the words of eternal life. Lord our spirit longs for you.  We now  believe you and that You are Christ, the Saviour and the Son of the Living God. Yes, You are the One whom our souls longs for.

Jesus answered them, Did I not choose you, the twelve, and one of you is a devil?” He spoke of Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon, for it was he who would betray Him, being one of the twelve.

Jesus foresees the betrayal and knows from the beginning who will ultimately walk away to death and destruction of body, soul and spirit said didn’t I Choose you twelve and one of you is a devil.  Was Judas not really enjoying the Word of God, the teachings and the sermons of God, the heart to love the poor and needy, the need to live in discomfort for some time.

GOD THE SON WARNS ABOUT THE BETRAYER 

The betrayal of Jesus was not by someone who was outside but by someone who was intimately with Jesus for the last 3 yrs of His earthly and ministerial life, He even knew the place of the Lord’s prayer…  He later repented but there was no place for repentance.

Do not allow today for satan to use your soul to fulfill his desires and satisfaction. Hell is full of rebellious people and satan is here to destroy your walk but HE WHO IS IN ME IS GREATER THAN he who is in the world. remember God the Holy Spirit is in you as you called on the Lord Jesus . Do not die in the wilderness and Come to Jesus and get cleansed as the Lord removes every uncleanness out of you.

Until you are broken the Living Water will not flow. Let every small and big sin be confessed, repent and forsake it. Do not pick what you like to hear in a sermon, teaching and leave out the correction, chastisement and ways to change.

The changes in you  others will see, Godly character is pleasing. Today when you eat of the Bread, enjoy and be blessed in deep communion, love and intimacy with Christ Jesus

LET GOD EMPTY YOU, CHANGE YOU, FILL YOU TO OVERFLOW IN HIM

            Dear Lord Holy Spirit , guide me through everyday life, that in everything I surrender to God. Let the peace of God rule my heart and I pray that I resist the devil with all his lies, snares and temptation. I yield where I have not yielded before, I pray feed me with the Word of God that I be more like the Lord Jesus. I give myself unreservedly to God. I Pray give me a heart of receiving chastisement and rebukes from the Lord and His servants whom He has chosen and placed in my life. I pray I obey God, break every doubt, fear and anxiety from my heart. Lead me in the path of righteousness, I grow every moment in Christ Jesus, that I am being transformed from Glory to Glory. Father God, I pray for forgiveness for every sin, and repent. Let the Love of Jesus again flood my heart, soul and mind. Let me think of Him every moment. To Jesus be all the Glory for ever and ever.

In Jesus name

Amen

Love
