BREAD OF LIFE

EMBRACE THE BREAD OF LIFE

When as a child, there were many wonderful memories of the family gatherings where we would come and share a meal together prepared by my father, William of whom many called him, “Bill.”

Preparation For The Bread

He would awaken early in the morning, and begin the process of prepping the ingredients that would go into a wonderful holiday meal. Tirelessly, he would sit at the dining room table, peeling potatoes, onions, carrots, celery and other produce. Then, he would mix the ingredients together, to make various delicious meals of which him known proudly for.

I remember fondly the various breads he would prepare for his family and those he loved. The bread would be made by hand, using flour, salt, yeast and other ingredients. The delicious smells of fresh bread permeated the home and made the atmosphere so comfortable and welcoming.

Sharing Of The Bread

Because of my father, and of my relationship with him, and the genuine selfless love he gave our family, I was able to fully embrace God the Father into my life, and have a relationship with His Son, Jesus Christ. Holy Spirit has always been welcomed into my home wherever I resided during my life as He is truly my comforter.

During this season of Christmas and the special Holy Days, may we reflect on those things that bring the desire to know Jesus Christ more into our own lives on a daily basis. We all are to be walking with Him on a daily basis, embracing Him fully and accepting the freshness of life, the renewal, restoration, revival that He can bring to the table.

United In Agape Love For The Bread

May we all come together, believer’s united in this hour, joining hands and hearts afresh lifting up our praises and thanksgiving to the lover of our lives; that is, Jesus Christ. He is the Bread of Life. Behold, He came to make things new! Let us be renewed in Him in this hour. Hold nothing back, but let your “Yes” be a “Yes!” with all boldness, excitement and power as in Him we obtain victory in this life.

May The Bread of Life Reside In Your Heart’s, Home and Hearth This Day.

Have a blessed, enriched and beautiful season to all my family, friends, and followers. We are embarking on a season of new winds of change. May we be sensitive to the beautiful aroma of Him.

Oh, Taste And See That The Lord Is Good!

Taste and See that the LORD is Good
7The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear Him, and he delivers them. 8Taste and see that the LORD is good;blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him! 9Fear the LORD, you His saints, for those who fear Him lack nothing.…

Berean Study Bible · Psalm 34:7-9

John 6:25-59 (NIV)

Jesus the Bread of Life

25 When they found him on the other side of the lake, they asked him, “Rabbi, when did you get here?”

26 Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, you are looking for me, not because you saw the signs I performed but because you ate the loaves and had your fill. 27 Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For on him God the Father has placed his seal of approval.”

28 Then they asked him, “What must we do to do the works God requires?”

29 Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.”

30 So they asked him, “What sign then will you give that we may see it and believe you? What will you do? 31 Our ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written: ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’[a]

32 Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven. 33 For the bread of God is the bread that comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”

34 “Sir,” they said, “always give us this bread.”

35 Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.36 But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe. 37 All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. 38 For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. 39 And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all those he has given me,but raise them up at the last day. 40 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 them up at the last day.”

41 At this the Jews there began to grumble about him because he said, “I am the bread that came down from heaven.” 42 They said, “Is this not Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How can he now say, ‘I came down from heaven’?”

43 “Stop grumbling among yourselves,” Jesus answered. 44 “No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them, and I will raise them up at the last day. 45 It is written in the Prophets: ‘They will all be taught by God.’[b] Everyone who has heard the Father and learned from him comes to me. 46 No one has seen the Father except the one who is from God; only he has seen the Father. 47 Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life. 48 I am the bread of life. 49 Your ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness, yet they died. 50 But here is the bread that comes down from heaven, which anyone may eat and not die. 51 I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.”

52 Then the Jews began to argue sharply among themselves, “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?”

53 Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. 54 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day. 55 For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink.56 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in them. 57 Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me. 58 This is the bread that came down from heaven. Your ancestors ate manna and died, but whoever feeds on this bread will live forever.” 59 He said this while teaching in the synagogue in Capernaum.

Agape Love

OPEN DOOR MISSION

Agape Love

Now is the demarcation of Light and Agape Love versus Darkness and Sin.

Choose this day wisely the life of love. Embrace all the gifts of the Spirit that He provides for they are given supernaturally by God.

Let us walk in a life-style of AGAPE LOVE of perfected mature love. Remember that perfect love casts our fear. Be this day not conformed to this world, that is dying. Choose death to self instead through by power of the Holy Spirit. Cherish each day renewed with a song of thanksgiving on our hearts. May we become selfless. The world, of which we reside, but are not a part of, moves in self-indulgence and greed. How are they, the world, and endless sea of humanity to know we are Christians? The answer is obvious; by our love.

Knock On God’s Door

Come out, the Laodicean church! Now is not the time to be lukewarm. No longer can a soul afford to sit on the middle of the fence. A choice must be made this day. No one is guaranteed a tomorrow.

Be Obedient To His Call

Give unto others. Joyfully bless many with what you have. Freely give, freely receive.

Choose to live your life more abundantly today.

Notes:

1. The fruit of the Spirit is the anointing of agape love.
2. The fruit of agape love is life.
3. The fruit of the flesh is sin.
4. The fruit of sin is death.

(NKJV) 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 [ a ] gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. 24 And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

Romans 6:16-18 New King James Version (NKJV)

16 Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness? 17 But God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine to which you were [a]delivered. 18 And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness.

Let Our Heart’s Cry Out

LET OUR HEART’S CRY OUT

TO RISE AND SHINE

Rise and Shine

Awaken from your slumber O’ you people. May we be captured anew in the winds of fire in Him. He is our true desire. Oh my Lord, enrapture me in your Holy Love. Invade me God. Wrap me in Your Holy Fire. Swirling flames of fire, to come up higher in the winds of fire. Let me come higher in my desire of You. Winds of change. Winds of holy fire, come lift us up higher in the Spirit, O’ Lord.

Voice!

May we have the voice that rises up in us to the Throne of Mercy where God is seated for His Face to shine down upon us.

Let our voices sing in unison of crescendo. Our heart’s cry out, restore us, O God; cause Your face to shine, and we shall be saved! Even in the midst of wars and of rumors of wars in this time of history, we have nothing to fear. Let our hearts cry out, “Yes!”

Oh, Jesus. My love. Holy Spirit, come! Arise within. Penetrate your love for me. Come to me, anew. Cover me with new life. A new dew, renewed. A refreshing cover enveloping me with the rains of blessings. Set my love as a seal on your heart.

Return!

Let us return to our first love. His Name is Jesus. The lover of our souls. Examine ourselves, and if there is any sin, may we be quick into repentance so that we are cleansed from all impurities and unrighteousness.

Forgive us O’ Lord for complacency in our lives. May we rise up! May we be on fire for You, Lord. Pour out, pour out, your Spirit upon us. Seeking you, seeking you. Rain down, rain down upon us.

Openness, openness to change. True change within. Guide our hearts, change our lives as we set our hearts with you. Wind of change, come. Blow on us now.

Seek!

Seek Him first and all His righteousness. Then ALL these things shall be added into you. My prayers to you, therefore, is to draw near to the love that is so dear.

Purify!

Cast away! Cast away, all sin within of known and unknown. Purify our hearts this day. Start afresh. Be renewed in our mind, body, soul and spirit.

Rain!

Rain of cleansing. Rain of refreshing, come. My love, my dove, O Holy One. My delight. Sweet divinity. Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good. Sweet and Holy and beautiful in Holiness. Let our heart’s cry out, “Yes.”

Prayer for Israel’s Restoration

To the Chief Musician. Set to [a]“The Lilies.” A[b]Testimony of Asaph. A Psalm.

80 Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel,
You who lead Joseph like a flock;
You who dwell between the cherubim, shine forth!
2 Before Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasseh,
Stir up Your strength,
And come and save us!

3 Restore us, O God;
Cause Your face to shine,
And we shall be saved!

4 O Lord God of hosts,
How long will You be angry
Against the prayer of Your people?
5 You have fed them with the bread of tears,
And given them tears to drink in great measure.
6 You have made us a strife to our neighbors,
And our enemies laugh among themselves.

7 Restore us, O God of hosts;
Cause Your face to shine,
And we shall be saved!

8 You have brought a vine out of Egypt;
You have cast out the [c]nations, and planted it.
9 You prepared room for it,
And caused it to take deep root,
And it filled the land.
10 The hills were covered with its shadow,
And the [d]mighty cedars with its boughs.
11 She sent out her boughs to [e]the Sea,
And her branches to [f]the River.

12 Why have You broken down her [g]hedges,
So that all who pass by the way pluck her fruit?
13 The boar out of the woods uproots it,
And the wild beast of the field devours it.

14 Return, we beseech You, O God of hosts;
Look down from heaven and see,
And visit this vine
15 And the vineyard which Your right hand has planted,
And the branch that You made strong for Yourself.
16 It is burned with fire, it is cut down;
They perish at the rebuke of Your countenance.
17 Let Your hand be upon the man of Your right hand,
Upon the son of man whom You made strong for Yourself.
18 Then we will not turn back from You;
Revive us, and we will call upon Your name.

19 Restore us, O Lord God of hosts;
Cause Your face to shine,
And we shall be saved!

Delight The Heart Of God

DELIGHT THE HEART OF GOD

Let us arise.

Come up to the House of the Lord, and worship Him in Spirit and of Truth. After we awaken each morning, may there be a strong stirring in our heart to run after Jesus, the lover of our soul; giving of our first-fruits. King David was a delight to the heart of God because he loved Him with all his heart. There has to be something that moves within us to passionately seek Him at all times. May our spirit within arise and dance with delight to our God. Now is the time. No one is promised a tomorrow. Love for the House of God should be a high priority in our life. Are you seeking more of Him? Then love Him first with all your heart and soul. Then, may there be the expectation fulfilled of basking in His Spirit’s presence and glory.

Decree A Thing

DECREE A THING AND IT SHALL BE ESTABLISHED

Let us rise up in this hour and be focused on a “new thing.” We assuredly have entered into a new season and year.

May we truly be the salt of the earth. Are you salty? To be salty in the positive sense reflects upon being part of an elite group of people representative of the best and noblest elements of society. I desire to be “salty.” How about you?

As children of God, those mighty in the Lord’s Army, we are to be walking illustrations of great worth and reliability. The forerunners are here, ready to prepare the way of the Lord and of His return. They had been feasting on locusts and wild honey in the wilderness for much of their lives, absorbed in learning personally from the Holy Spirit as many of today’s churches had failed to provide the proper nourishment.

From our mother’s womb, we have been “set apart” for the assignment of our life; that is now. Being of a unique and chosen nation established for this moment of history, are imparted of great worth are also equipped with the five-fold garments and of the whole armor of God as written in Ephesians.

Nothing is impossible to those who believe.

Joshua, was a mighty General who took command, and received the promises land. In the Old Testament, he was scribed as “Possessing The Inheritance.” The date was 1400-1375 B.C. A key word applied to this Book of Joshua, is:

Obedience, Covenant, Courage

Therefore, advance forward with boldness and of authority to possess the land that is your inheritance. How many of you been standing on your promises of the “promised land?”

Don’t give up when you are on the threshold of a miracle. Continue to be courageous, faithful, steadfast and strong in Spirit. Be obedient to the Lord in every step of your walk with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. You are part of the new covenant; our portion is in Him.

The children of Israel after wandering forty years in the desert were finally to embark upon their destiny. One condition was that they remain faithful.

Faithful.

Faith That Moves Mountains.

Let us decree and declare the blessings of God move in our lives as we are faithful to Him, the lover of our life, a very purpose of our being. Give glory unto Him firstly as is due, and see things manifest at an accelerating move in this unique period of time.

Ephesians 6:10-18

The Whole Armor of God

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the [a]wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of [b]the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints (NKJV)

++++

The phrase ‘the salt of the earth’ derives from the Bible, Matthew 5:13 (King James Version):

“Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, where with shall it be salted? it is thence forth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. “

Prophetic Songs

SANG IN HEBREW

Prophetic Songs
Songs, Hymns and Spiritual Songs

DREAM:
I was in the living room where I saw a ladder. I stepped onto the ladder and began to climb. At the top, near the ceiling was an attic. While standing on the top cross-piece of the ladder; the rung, I started taking things out that were stored. I took out a television set, etc., then began to sing a beautiful song in Hebrew. My sister, Karen was watching me the entire time and was amazed.

The Hebrew word for new song is as used in the Old Testament is “chadash” meaning a fresh new thing, and “shiyrah” meaning a song.

When we flow in the songs of the Kingdom, we as the redeemed begin to travel into the awesome presence of God. This new song is a vehicle, for the Body of Christ to do something really spectacular in the Lord. This truly is a vehicle that takes us somewhere in the Spirit of God.

Singing of scripture, as in the form of a type of chant and of Hebrew cantillation, was said to occur in both the temple and synagogues.

Let us lift up our voices in Spiritual Song.

Let This Song Be Beautiful And Pure Of Heart As We In This Hour Keep Our Garments Pure And White.

Let Us Pray:
Father God, we come boldly to Your Throne of Grace and Mercy with thanksgiving on our hearts proclaiming the winds of change move in our lives and circumstances as we lift up our voices in songs, Hymns and Spiritual Songs as led by the Spirit of God. Decreeing the store houses be open in this hour. Let us receive more revelations as unto Jacob’s Ladder. May we praise The King of Kings, Lord Jesus, (also known as) Yeshua Hamashiach. Those that are spirit-filled sing in the Spirit in a new song. Let your sound resonate with beauty, bring forth the glory and of a new atmosphere in this hour. Let our vision become renewed and with increased clarity. Let us tell of our visions in song as led by the Holy Spirit and in writings then to one another of the goodness of God. For He is good. Oh, so good! In Jesus Mighty Name, we pray. Amen.
