Partakers of flesh and blood. Meditation John 6:48-58

1. JESUS said he is the bread of life. (V48)
2. JESUS told them that their fathers ate the manna in the wilderness but still died.(v49)
3. But he said that he is the bread coming from heaven and if one eats of him they shall not die but live forever. (V50)
4. He goes a little further to explain that the bread is his flesh which he gives for the life of the world. ( V51)
5. The Jews starting asking how he can give his flesh for them to eat. (V52)
6. JESUS said except if one does not eat his flesh and drink his blood there is no life in him. (V53)
7. JESUS said whosoever eats of his flesh and drink of his blood has eternal life. ( V54)
8. JESUS said if one eats of his flesh and drink of his blood shall dwell in him. For his flesh is a meat and his blood is a drink indeed. (V55, 56)
9. As Christ lives by his father who sent him, so will the person live by eating the flesh of Christ. (V57)
10. Jesus said he is the bread that came from heaven. Fathers ate the manna but died. He is that bread of life and those that eat of him shall have eternal life. (V58)

 LIFE APPLICATION:
1. The WORD of GOD says, as CHRIST lives by his father.. so whoever eats the son shall live. (V57)

1. What does it mean eating the flesh of CHRIST?
Christ is God himself.

So eating the flesh of Christ means eating God himself.

What we eat becomes a part of our body. We are becoming a part of the body of CHRIST.

For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
Ephesians:5:30

So if God is eternal we become eternal too. (V58)

2. How can we eat the flesh of Christ?

A. Eating the word of God is eating Christ himself.  I would like you to look into the previous meditation on bread of life.

B. Participating in the Holy communion (v55,56)

For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:
1 Corinthians:11:23

And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.
1 Corinthians:11:24

After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
1 Corinthians:11:25

For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come.
1 Corinthians:11:26

We are eating the flesh of Christ when we participate In the Holy communion and drinking his blood.

If we examine ourselves and take part in it we shall have eternal life.

 But we take part in it unworthily it can let us be sick and weak.

Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.
1 Corinthians:11:27

Also, we are partakers of one flesh and one blood.

The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?
1 Corinthians:10:16

For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread.
1 Corinthians:10:17

3. How can this affect our lives?

A. We are healed by the stripes of Jesus.  

Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
1 Peter:2:24

He bore our sins on the tree. So we are free. By his stripes we are healed.

Again, believe and confess as you participate in this divine covenant. You will be set free from all diseases and ailments physically and every hurts emotionally.

B. We are free from the fear of death:

Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
Hebrews:2:14

And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
Hebrews:2:15

Because we are partakers of the flesh and blood of CHRIST, we have eternal life in him.

C. We are passing from death to life.

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
John:5:24
Dear Child of God,

 we have eternal life in Christ JESUS, we will not die... But live a life in abundance. 

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
John:10:10

Eat of these words dear child of God and the grips of the  thief that comes to steal, kill and destroy will be broken and you will have life and life and life.....

This year is the year your bondages are going to be broken. Whom the son sets free, they are free indeed.

Join with me as
I pray that
Every grip and every stronghold, the enemy has in your physical body is broken today... as the body of CHRIST was broken physically for you and by his strips you are healed.

Today, I pray that there will be healing in your emotions. Let there be a mighty move of the spirit of God over your souls that every emotional hurts be healed in Jesus mighty name. 
Let there not be even the remnants of painful memories of the past left.

Opinions... meditation John 5:10-18

1. The Jews asked the man who was healed, why he was taking his bed and walking on a Sabbath day as it was not lawful. ( V10)
2. He said the person who made him whole told him to take his bed and walk. (V11)
3. Then the Jews asked him who healed him , but he knew not as JESUS conveyed himself away. ( V12,13)
4. Then later Jesus meets him in the temple and deals with his sin. (V14)
5. The man and testified to the Jews that it was Jesus that made him whole.  ( V15)
6. They started persecuting Jesus because he healed on a Sabbath day. ( V16)
7. Jesus said he should work where his father works. (V17)
8. They hated him evermore as he not only broke the Sabbath, but also made him equal to God the father. (v18)

LIFE APPLICATION:
Dealing with Opinions of People:
Jesus was every time aware of the intentions of people. It is very easy for any man to judge others and law facilitates it. (V10)

And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
Genesis:6:5

It is from the hearts  of man that evil things arises.

But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.
Matthew:15:18

For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
Matthew:15:19

God never wants us to hold a judgemental spirit as there will be a day when we stand before the judgement seat of God.

But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
Romans:14:10

This is what CHRIST says,

Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:
Luke:6:37

Here I would like to take you all into a deeper understanding of law and Grace.

A. Law makes us guilty of our sins:
Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.
Romans:3:19

Christ fulfilled law in the flesh: (grace)
For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
Romans:8:3

B. Law makes sin come alive.
The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
1 Corinthians:15:56

But we have victory over the strength of sin and death that comes through the law through JESUS CHRIST.

But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians:15:57

C. Law breeds self righteousness but Grace bears the righteousness of CHRIST.

And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
Philippians:3:9

Jesus was more concerned of the welfare  people than their traditions. I would request you to kindly meditate Mark 7 to know more.

Jesus came to fulfil the law.. through Grace.

Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
Matthew:5:17

Christ has summed up the fulfilment of the Law as Love.

Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
Matthew:22:37

This is the first and great commandment.
Matthew:22:38

And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Matthew:22:39


On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
Matthew:22:40

Christ emphasises more on love than law. Dear Child of God, we are made free from the condemnation of the law, by the righteousness of CHRIST.  Law puts us under bondage. But Grace liberates us to walk in freedom.

For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
John:1:17

Hence, we do not need to fear nor are we condemned if we walk according to the spirit.

For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
Romans:8:15

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Romans:8:1

LIFE APPLICATION 2:
REVELATION OF CHRIST:

I have shared beforehand, that a man who had an encounter with God can never be the same.

A. The first encounter:
The first time the man met Christ his body was healed. (V9)
B. the second encounter:
The second time this man met CHRIST, his sins were dealt with, and he was made whole inwardly.
Here I would like to go a little deeper about sin and it's consequences.

A. What is sin?

Sin is the transgression of the Law.

Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.
1 John:3:4

All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.
1 John:5:17

If we know what is right and don't do it.
Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.
James:4:17

B. How do we know when we sin?
1. Our conscience convicts us.

And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
John:8:9

The WORD of GOD says that we are sinners who need forgiveness.

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
1 John:1:8

C. What happens when we sin?
1. Our spirit man becomes dead and death begins to reign in us.

But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
Genesis:2:17

2. The sin lies at our doorsteps when to devour us.

If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.
Genesis:4:7

3. When sin is fulfilled in our mortal bodies, it breeds death.

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Romans:6:23

This is the sequence. Lust conceives sin and sin brings curse and death.

Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
James:1:15

So the consequences of sin is terrible.  If you are knowingly playing with sin, it is time to come back to God.

Christ has borne all our sins and curses at the cross.

But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
Isaiah:53:5

The WORD of GOD says,

There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.
Isaiah:57:21

So let us come back to Christ and he will give us his peace.

When his soul man was healed, he went about testifying what CHRIST has done to everyone. (V15)

So will God do the same with us when we have an encounter with God.

May the Spirit of God minister unto your souls.

An Insight into the book of Hebrews - Chapter 2

           This chapter clearly explains, the plan of salvation of how Christ suffered for our sins and redeemed us by his blood. This blog is intended to make the understanding of the word of God a little easier. Hence, I urge you to meditate this Hebrews Chapter-2, straight from the Holy Bible, and use this post only as an aid for better understanding of the scriptures. Also, take a glance of An insight into the book of Hebrews - Chapter 1, for better continuity. Be blessed.



Be Serious about your Salvation:
  • We should give heed to the things that we have heard. (refer Hebrews Chapter 1) or else, at any time we might let them  slip. (Heb 2:1)
  • In the past, even the words spoken by angels were considered so important that every transgression and disobedience to that word was judged and punished. (Heb 2:2)
  • But, in later times, the message of salvation was spoken by the Lord himself; (Heb 1:2). It was also confirmed to us, by them that heard Christ speak. (Heb 2:3)
  • God himself bore witness and proved the words of Christ, with signs, wonders, miracles and by the gifts of the Holy Spirit according to his own will. (Heb 2:4)
  • Then how much more we need to be serious of the salvation through God`s only son, Jesus Christ Of Nazareth? How will we escape if we neglect so great a salvation? (Heb 2:3)
Man made to be a little lower than angels:
  • God did not subject the world unto angels. (Heb 2:6)
  • But God has put all things in subjection under man`s feet, though  all things are not yet under him. (Heb 2:8)
  • God has made man a little inferior to angels. Yet he has crowned him with glory and honor, setting him above all of God`s creation. (Heb 2:6,7)
  • This is what is written in one place about man, revealing the position of man and angels; "What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him?Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands:" (Heb 2: 6,7)
Jesus Christ took the form of man so that he can taste death for us:
  • Jesus Christ took the human form, a form that is a little lower than the angels yet crowned with glory and honor, so that he can take the Suffering of death. ( Heb 2:9)
  • He took the human form, so that he can taste death for every men, by the grace of God. (Heb 2:9)
  • All things are made for Christ and by Christ. Yet, being the captain of salvation, God chose to perfect him through sufferings, so that he can bring many sons (people), into glory. (Heb 2:10)
  • He took a human form so that, he who sanctifies (Christ himself) and the one being sanctified (us) are all one. Hence, he is not ashamed to call us his brethren. (Heb 2:11)
  • This is what is written in verse 12 and 13 as, "I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee. 13 And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me". 
  • He did not take the form of angels, but took on him the form of a man, the seed of Abraham. (Heb 2:16)
  • In all things he took the form of his brethren, so that he can be a faithful and merciful high priest in all things pertaining to God and to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. (Heb 2:17)
Jesus` victory over death:

  • We, being children are in flesh and blood, Christ himself took the same form, so that through his death he can destroy the devil who had the power of death. (Heb 2:14)
  • Thus he is able to deliver anyone subjected to a lifetime bondage to the fear of death. (Heb 2:15)
  • Because he himself suffered being tempted and took victory over it he can help everyone of us who are being tempted too. (Heb 2:18)
Life application:

  1. We need to be serious of our salvation, as it is brought unto us by Christ himself.
  2. Through the sufferings of Christ, we have been made children of the most high God.
  3. Christ took all sufferings on the cross, that he can sanctify us by his blood.
  4. He took the form of a man, so that he can be a faithful and merciful high priest to reconcile for our sins.
  5. As children of the most high God, we need not be under a lifetime bondage to the fear of death. The power of death, the devil himself was DEFEATED, by the death of Christ.
  6. Last but not the least, Because Christ went through various temptations and overcame them, he is more than able and more than ready to help us out in our temptations too.
Dear Child of God, if you are under a lifetime bondage to the fear of death, or caught up with various temptations rest assure, we have a merciful and faithful high priest, who can deliver us from the pangs of the evil one. If you are a victim, please, repeat this prayer with me.

" Dear Lord Jesus, I believe that you are the son of the most high God. I believe that you came in flesh and blood, so that you can sanctify me and give me victory over sin and death. Lord! I acknowledge that I am under the bondage of ------------------- (Ex: Sin, fear of death, drugs, self mutilation, shame, rejection, etc).  and I want to be set free from it. I strongly believe that you tasted death, that I can be free form the power of death, in its every form. I believe that you were tempted yet you took victory in all and  I believe you can help out in my temptations and weaknesses too. Wash me one more time by your blood. Cleanse me and make me whole. Thank you Jesus! for being the captain of my salvation and setting me free. In Jesus mighty name I pray.
Amen.
