KEY SCRIPTURE: John 6:50 KJV” This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.”
In this study of a walk with Jesus through the gospel, the Lord kept emphasising the fact that He is the bread that came down from heaven. He added that any man who eats of this bread shall not die. He is the Living bread that gives life to the world. The challenge that men find themselves is spiritual death, which has engulfed everyone born into this world. Romans 5:12 KJV “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so, death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned”: This death is spiritual death. Death according to the bible is not just the censure of life but a separation between two things. A physical death is the separation between spirit of the man and the body, James 2:26, whiles a spiritual death is the separation of the Spirit of God from the Spirit of man. The absence of the Spirit of God in man is the reason for the complete failure of the human being
This kind of death makes man a slave to almost everything that was created. Men have become walking prisoners.
1.Men are slaves to their own appetites.
2.Men are slaves to their anger and temper
3 Men are slaves to drinks, drugs and sex
4.Men are slaves to all kinds of foolish actions.
Why would a man have sex with a dog? Why would a man device evil schemes to kill his fellow man. Eph 4:18 KJV” Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart :” Sad, but there is a way out.
It is in the light of the reign of death over man that our Lord Jesus gives His life. He gave His life that man will be alive unto God and begin to relate to himself and his fellow human beings as humans. The life of Jesus in man gives man power over devils and liberates men from all the slavery that has engulfed men. Men can now have dominion over creation and live as really free beings. Most men are not at peace with themselves, The presence of the life of God in man brings real peace to all those who partake of this bread from heaven.
THOUGHT: STOP THE REIGN OF DEATH BY RECEIVING THE BREAD OF LIFE
2Timothy 1:10 KJV But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:
Rom 5:18 KJV “Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.”
