Summary: THESE VERSES PICTURE A SCENE THAT IS ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE IN THE EYES OF MAN BUT TO GOD IT`S A OPPORTUNITY TO DISPLAY HIS AWESOME POWER

John 6:5-13 (KJV) When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat?

[6] And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do.

[7] Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little.

[8] One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, saith unto him,

[9] There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?

[10] And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.

[11] And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.

[12] When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.

[13] Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten.

MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS

THESE VERSES PICTURE A SCENE THAT IS

ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE IN THE EYES OF MAN

BUT TO GOD IT`S A OPPORTUNITY TO DISPLAY HIS AWESOME POWER

TO OVERCOME ANY AND ALL SITUATION-WITH NO

EXCEPTIONS

IN THE TEXT BEFORE US

JOHN SELECTS A PARTICULAR PLACE FOR PRESENTING A SPRITUAL TRUTH ABOUT CHRIST

JESUS IN THE MULTIPLICATION OF THE LOAVES

PRESENTS HIMSELF AS THE BREAD OF LIFE

FOR YOU DO KNOW THAT JESUS IS BREAD WHEN

YOU`RE HUNGRY

AND WATER WHEN YOU ARE THRISTY

IN THE 4TH CHP OF JOHN HE PRESENT HIMSELF AS

THE LIVING WATER

AND IF YOU DRINK YOU WILL NEVER THRIST

AGAIN

BUT IN VERSE 5 OF THE TEXT JESUS ASK PHILIP A QUESTION?

WHENCE SHALL WE BUY BREAD

JOHN 1: 44 REVEALS THAT PHILIP WAS FROM

BETHSAIDA

AND SINCE HE WAS FROM BETHSAIDA SURELY HE

KNEW WHERE TO BUY BREAD

BUT WHEN YOU LOOK AT VERSE 6 IN THE TEXT JESUS ASK PHILIP THIS QUESTION TO PROVE OR

TEST HIM

AND INSTEAD OF REFERRING THIS PROBLEM

BACK TO JESUS

PHILIP DID SOME MENTAL ARITHMETIC

THE BIBLE SAYS HE RESPONDED BY SAYING

``TWO HUNDRED PENNYWORTH OF BREAD IS NOT

SUFFICIENT FOR THIS MULTITUDE

AND IF YOU WOULD LET ME PARENTHETICALLY

INTERJECT

THE NUMBER 200 REPRESENTS INSUFFICIENCY

THUS SIGNFYING THE INSUFFICIENCY OF MONEY

THE TEXT REVEALS IN VERSES 8 AND 9

John 6:8-9 (KJV) One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon

Peter's brother, saith unto him,

[9] There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?

AND EVEN THOUGH PHILIP AND ANDREW FAILED

THE TEST BECAUSE OF BAD ARITHMETIC

AND THE REASON THEY FAIL WAS BECAUSE

PHILIPS ARITHMETIC WAS BASED UPON THE

MAGNITUDE OF THE CROWD

WHILE ANDREWS WAS BASED UPON THE

SMALLNESS OF THE LADS LUNCH

AND THIS MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS

REPRESENTS BAD ARITHMETIC

BECAUSE PHILIP AND ANDREW WAS SO OVER

AWED

BY THE MAGITUDE AND THE SMALLNESS THAT

THEY FORGET WHO WAS IN THERE PRESENCE

THEY LOOK AT THE PROBLEM AND NOT THE

PROBLEM SOLVER

FOR THEY HAD BEEN WITH JESUS FOR TWO YEARS

AN INSTEAD OF RECEVING THE SITUATION AS A

OPPORTUNITY TO TRUST GOD

THEY LOOK AT IT AS A IMPOSSIBLE SITUATION AND IT`S IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND CHURCH

THAT WE NEED TO STOP TRUSTING IN OUR

INSUFFICENCY

AND START TRUSTING IN JESUS

FOR WE NEED TO STOP LOOKING AT WHAT WE

DON` T HAVE

AND START PRAISING GOD FOR WHAT WE DO

HAVE

IF GOD CAN PUT THE WIND IN A FULL NELSON AND

MAKE A FREEWAY DOWN THROUGH RED SEA

AND THEN DROWN PHAROAHS ARMY

AND IF GOD CAN CRUMBLE THE WALLS OF

JERICHO

PROVIDE MANNA IN THE WILDERNESS AND MAKE

WATER COME FROM A DRY ROCK

KILL A GAINT WITH SLING SHOT AND ONE

SMOOTH STONE

AND SURELY IF HE CAN TURN WATER INTO WINE

HEAL THE SICK AND RAISE THE DEAD

AND THAT GOD SPECIALIZES IN TURNING THE

IMPOSSIBLE INTO THE POSSIBLE

SURELY HE WILL SEE US THROUGH

***********************************************

THE 2ND SPRITUAL NUGGET I SEE IN THE TEXT

IS THE LAD WHO SET THE STAGE FOR THE

MIRACLE

BY HIS WILLINGNESS TO GIVE JESUS HIS LITTLE

LUNCH

AND What was offered was enough for Jesus

AND THE LAD TEACHES US ALL A PRACTICAL

LESSON HERE

AND THAT LESSON IS

WHENEVER THERE IS A NEED GIVE ALL YOU HAVE

TO JESUS AND LET HIM DO THE REST

BECAUSE IF WE DO THE POSSIBLE JESUS WILL DO

THE IMPOSSIBLE
