Summary: God has been revealing His Holy Presence to humankind. Why do we not see the evidence?
What happens when a person filled with the burdens of failures kneels down and with tears rolling down the face speaks? What happens when an addict to alcohol, drugs, sex abuse, or even bad choices in life, failed relationships. What happens when all of these people find theirselves on their knees, speaking out words about their pain?
To whom are their words addressed? To whom do people in despair surrender? To whom do people humble their self along with selfish, self-serving serving and destructive ways? Why has human after human, person after person chosen this same method of finding help when their lifestyle causes despair?
People over thousands of years have begged for help. Why, because it works. Each person knows a change is offered intimately within their soul. Its' like each soul now knows a secret about life.
They know what it means to experience being in the presence of the Lord. A divine and personal promise of hope comes into each life, let's call it the growth of faith. But a decision about life is required.
Do you accept a new path to walk, or continue to do as you please? Faith calls each to walk a new walk, through life and nature with a personal relationship with our Father, His Son and the Holy Ghost.
What part of faith do you struggle to understand? I believe the people who experienced the five loaves and two fishes, feeding five thousand men plus women and children likewise struggled to understand their doubts about faith.
With their need for physical nourishment fulfilled, without having to do any work. They wanted to make Yeshua Hamashia (Jesus Christ) the king of Israel. Being only a earthly king over one country is not part of the mission of Yeshua, or of the plan of God.
No wonder Yeshua sent his disciples away and then retreated up the mountain for prayer. During the night and storm, Yeshua reunited with his disciples by walking on the water.
John 6:24-25 (CJB) Accordingly, when the crowd saw that neither Yeshua nor his talmidim were there, they themselves boarded the boats and made for K’far-Nachum in search of Yeshua. When they found him on the other side of the lake, they asked him, “Rabbi, when did you get here?”
Those who experienced the event of the miraculous feeding where perplexed about where Yeshua was. They saw his disciples leave without him. Since he was no longer on the desolate place they went searching, the calling upon each soul. Seeking him is within our spirit. Finding him on the other side and with his disciples. Just how could Yeshua Hamashia (Jesus Christ) have gotten here?
Somewhere and sometime about here, you would think the miraculous events of their historical past would come back into focus. Remember God feeding the wandering children of God with bread from heaven. Remember God leading the freedom seeking slaves through parted waters of the Red Sea. What was God trying to teach by these experiences? How about His presence is here, now, and with each person.
Why is it so common place for God's miraculous presence to often escape the human mind? What part of faith do you struggle to understand?
John 6:26-27 Yeshua answered, “Yes, indeed! I tell you, you’re not looking for me because you saw miraculous signs, but because you ate the bread and had all you wanted! Don’t work for the food which passes away but for the food that stays on into eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For this is the one on whom God the Father has put his seal.”
There is an important answer here. Understand faith begins with a relationship with the one God has put his seal. This is a sign of who the Messiah is. He will have a special relationship with:
Adonai (Lord and Master)
El Elyon (The Most High God)
El Olam (The Everlasting God)
El Shaddai (Lord God Amighty),
Jehovah Jireh (The Lord Will Provide)
Jehovah Sabaoth (The Lord of Host)
Jehovah Shalom (The Lord Is Peace)
Yahweh (Lord Jehovah)
So special of a personal relationship Yeshua Hamashia (Jesus Christ) knows Elohim to be Elohim HaAv, God the Father. Yeshua Hamashia (Jesus Christ) knows of the compassion the Father desires his people to experience. Hear the words inviting seekers to know life as given to the prophet Isaiah.
Isaiah 55:1-5 (CJB) “All you who are thirsty, come to the water! You without money, come, buy, and eat! Yes, come! Buy wine and milk without money — it’s free! Why spend money for what isn’t food, your wages for what doesn’t satisfy? Listen carefully to me, and you will eat well, you will enjoy the fat of the land. Open your ears, and come to me; listen well, and you will live — I will make an everlasting covenant with you, the grace I assured David. I have given him as a witness to the peoples, a leader and law giver for the peoples. You will summon a nation you do not know, and a nation that doesn’t know you will run to you, for the sake of Adonai your God, the Holy One of Isra’el, who will glorify you.”
