Not by Bread Alone

August 12, 2016

Luke 4:1-4 NASB

The Temptation of Jesus
1 Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led around by the Spirit in the wilderness 2 for forty days, being tempted by the devil. And He ate nothing during those days, and when they had ended, He became hungry. 3 And the devil said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, tell this stone to become bread.” 4 And Jesus answered him, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live on bread alone.’”

From Zondervan KJV Study Bible

  • v3: The devil always tempts where vulnerable and makes the temptation attractive.
    => Mt 4:3: Jesus is tempted to use His powers for His own ends
  • v4: Dt 8:3: Jesus will live by doing God’s will, and will take no shortcuts=> not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD.
    => Mt 4:4: Jesus relied on His Father; not His own miraculous power for the provision of food; His food was to do the will of the father who sent him (Jn 4:34)

 

Without true bread – the ability to hear and know the voice of Jesus=> there is no power to live!

 

Luke 1:37 AMP … For with God nothing is ever impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment.

John 6:32-35 NASB … Jesus then said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread out of heaven, but it is My Father who gives you the true bread out of heaven. 33 For the bread of God is that which comes down out of heaven, and gives life to the world.” 34 Then they said to Him, “Lord, always give us this bread.”

35 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst.

From NetBible Jn 6:32

  • true[228] = *that which has not only the name and resemblance, but the real nature corresponding to the name, in every respect corresponding to the idea signified by the name, real, true genuine
    * opposite to what is fictitious, counterfeit, imaginary, simulated or pretended=>From [227] = loving the truth, speaking the truth, truthful

John 10:4-5 NASB … When He puts forth all his own, He goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice. 5 A stranger they simply will not follow, but will flee from him, because they do not know the voice of strangers.

Jesus = True Bread

March 2, 2016

John 6:32-35 NASB … Jesus then said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread out of heaven, but it is My Father who gives you the true bread out of heaven. 33 For the bread of God is that which comes down out of heaven, and gives life to the world.” 34 Then they said to Him, “Lord, always give us this bread.”

35 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst.

From NetBible Jn 6:32

  • true[228] = *that which has not only the name and resemblance, but the real nature corresponding to the name, in every respect corresponding to the idea signified by the name, real, true genuine
    * opposite to what is fictitious, counterfeit, imaginary, simulated or pretended=>From [227] = loving the truth, speaking the truth, truthful

Jesus the Bread of Life
True bread from heaven
The One and Only who satisfies
Full of grace and truth
The Word made flesh –
Jn 1:14
The Living Bread –Jn 6:51
The Imperishable Seed –1Pe 1:23
The Living Word

Stands forever and never dies.Is 40:8

John 6:53-55,63 NASB … So Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in yourselves. 54 He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. 55 For My flesh is true food, and My blood is true drink. 56 He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him.

63 It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life. 

True Food = Jesus flesh/body, Words spoken
True Drink = Jesus blood, His life giving Spirit

True Bread must be eaten{digested/applied}
With True Drink{the Holy Spirit}.

Why do you spend money for what is not bread, And your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, And let your soul delight itself in abundance{richest, finest food=true bread}. –Is 55:2

Matthew 4:4 NASB … But He answered and said, It is written, ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.’

Word of Life

June 10, 2015

Matthew 4:4 AMP
4 … Man shall not live and be upheld and sustained by bread alone, but by every word that comes forth from the mouth of God

John 10:27-28 AMP
27 The sheep that are My own hear and are listening to My voice; and I know them, and they follow Me.
28 And I give them eternal life, and they shall never lose it or perish throughout the ages. [To all eternity they shall never by any means be destroyed.] And no one is able to snatch them out of My hand.

The Word of God = the Word of life
To those who listen to and follow the Lord’s voice.

Without true bread there is no power to live!

Luke 1:37 AMP
37 For with God nothing is ever impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment.

What “sign” is given, that one may see, believe and live?
=> True Bread

John 6:29-35 AMP
29 Jesus replied, This is the work (service) that God asks of you: that you believe in the One Whom He has sent [that you cleave to, trust, rely on, and have faith in His Messenger].
30 Therefore they said to Him, What sign (miracle, wonderwork) will You perform then, so that we may see it and believe and rely on and adhere to You? What [supernatural] work have You [to show what You can do]?
31 Our forefathers ate the manna in the wilderness; as the Scripture says, He gave them bread out of heaven to eat.
32 Jesus then said to them, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, Moses did not give you the Bread from heaven [what Moses gave you was not the Bread from heaven], but it is My Father Who gives you the true heavenly Bread.
33 For the Bread of God is He Who comes down out of heaven and gives life to the world.
34 Then they said to Him, Lord, give us this bread always (all the time)!
35 Jesus replied, I am the Bread of Life. He who comes to Me will never be hungry, and he who believes in and cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me will never thirst any more (at any time).

True Bread – A Sign

John 6:29-31 NASB
29 Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent.” 30 So they said to Him, “What then do You do for a sign, so that we may see, and believe You? What work do You perform? 31 Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written, ‘He gave them bread out of heaven to eat.’”

What “sign” is given, that one may see and believe?

Daily Bread and Thanks

Daily Bread and Thanks

June 30, 2013

John 6:11 … And Jesus took the loaves, and when He had given thanks He distributed them to the disciples, and the disciples to those sitting down; and likewise of the fish, as much as they wanted.

John 6:23 however, other boats came from Tiberias, near the place where they ate bread after the Lord had given thanks––

Look at the relationship between distributing bread, eating bread and giving thanks. AFTER giving thanks the bread is distributed and eaten. Thanks here means to be grateful and is often associated with saying grace at a meal. This made me think of the Lord’s Supper.

Mark 14:22-26And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed[2127] and broke it , and gave it to them and said, “Take, eat; this is My body.” Then He took the cup, and when He had given thanks[2168] He gave it to them, and they all drank from it. And He said to them, “This is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many. Truly I say to you, I will never again drink of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.” After singing a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.

The above passage reveals another word for thanks which means to celebrate with praise. Also notice the singing of a hymn. The Hallel Psalms (Ps 113-118) were sung during the meal. Psalms 113 and 114 were sung just before the second cup and 115-118 were sung at the end of the meal, after the fourth, or hallel cup.

When asking for daily bread or words from the Lord, try giving thanks from a grateful heart and celebrate the ‘bread’ that is given with praise and a song!

Matthew 6:11 AMP … Give us this day our daily bread.

Luke 4:4 AMP … And Jesus replied to him, It is written, Man shall not live and be sustained by (on) bread alone but by every word and expression of God.

Matthew 6:11 AMP … Give us this day our daily bread.

John 6:33-34 AMP … For the Bread of God is He Who comes down out of heaven and gives life to the world. Then they said to Him, Lord, give us this bread always (all the time)!

  • Singing a hymn[5214] = sing praise – paschal hymn
    *The Hallel Psalms (Ps 113-118) were sung during the meal. Psalms 113 and 114 were sung just before the second cup and 115-118 were sung at the end of the meal, after the fourth, or hallel cup.

See Giants? Look for the BREAD!

February 13, 2013

Numbers 14:8-9If the Lord delights in us, then He will bring us into this land and give it to us, ‘a land which flows with milk and honey.’ Only do not rebel against the Lord, nor fear the people of the land, for they are our bread; their protection has departed from them, and the Lord is with us. Do not fear them.

Don’t rebel against the Lord
Or fear the giants
They are BREAD for us.
Their protection is removed
But the Lord is with us.
Fear Not!

Trust in the Lord
Go forward in FAITH
Believe and act on God’s promises!
The giants are BREAD
They are there to strengthen you!

***

How was Caleb able to see the giants as bread instead of enemies too big to go up against?

But My servant Caleb, because he has had a different spirit and has followed Me fully, I will bring into the land which he entered, and his descendants shall take possession of it. -Nu14:24

He had a “different spirit” – a spirit which totally filled, armed and satisfied him. As Caleb believed and acted on what God told him – the Lord gave him victory!

Psalm 144:1 Praise be to the LORD my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle.

Word Study

From NetBible Nu14:9

  • bread[03899] = food, nourishment, fruit
    *from [03898] = to fight, do battle, make war, to eat, use as food

From NetBible Nu14:24

  • follow fully[04390] = to be filled, be armed, be satisfied

From NetBible Ps144:1

  • battle[04421] = to fight, to war
    *from [03898] = to fight, do battle, make war, to eat, use as food

.

If you see giants before you and find yourself in the midst of a big battle – look for the BREAD= provision, nourishment, instruction from the LORD. Trust and follow Him fully. The Lord will give the victory!

Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” -Mt4:4

Children’s BREAD this seems related …

One way to SEE the BREAD
Persist and don’t give up
Worship and pray at the Lord’s feet{Son of David=Messiah}
This precedes receiving the children’s bread-the cure …
🙂
AND the daughter the mother was wanting Jesus to heal wasn’t even present! WOW!
***

Matthew 15:21-25 AMP

21 And going away from there, Jesus withdrew to the district of Tyre and Sidon.

22 And behold, a woman who was a Canaanite from that district came out and, with a [loud, troublesomely urgent] cry, begged, Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David! My daughter is miserably and distressingly and cruelly possessed by a demon!

23 But He did not answer her a word. And His disciples came and implored Him, saying, Send her away, for she is crying out after us.

24 He answered, I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

25 But she came and, kneeling, worshiped Him and kept praying, Lord, help me!

26 And He answered, It is not right (proper, becoming, or fair) to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs.

27 She said, Yes, Lord, yet even the little pups (little whelps) eat the crumbs that fall from their [young] masters’ table.

28 Then Jesus answered her, O woman, great is your faith! Be it done for you as you wish. And her daughter was cured from that moment.
