GOD demonstrated again that HE truly is the all-powerful GOD by feeding all of Israel manna (bread) and giving them water from a rock every single day of the forty years that they were in the wilderness. JESUS decided to demonstrate that HE was that very same GOD who came to the world in the flesh as a man, GOD MAN, by showing a multitude of five thousand men, not including women and children, that it was HE in the wilderness who fed millions of hungry people on a daily basis!
In the wilderness, there was no lad who, on a daily basis, would have five barley loaves and two small fishes for JESUS to bless, then break into portions for everyone. But GOD had the manna appear on the ground in the morning six days a week. There was enough for one day on the first six days. On the sixth day, these six hundred thousand fighting men, plus women and children, were also given enough for the Sabbath.
JESUS told HIS disciples to have the multitude sit down on the grass (John 6:10). 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 [eat fish]. When they were filled, HE said unto HIS disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost. 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. [Only GOD the FATHER had, on a larger scale, done something like this.] When JESUS perceived that they would come and take HIM by force, to make HIM a king, HE departed again into a mountain HIMSELF alone” (John 6:11-13, 15).
After HE and HIS disciples were in Capernaum, the multitude that HE had fed the day before found HIM. In verse 26 HE let them know that they had missed the point of HIM feeding them. HE, in so many words, said, “You’re not seeking ME because I AM GOD [in the flesh of man], and you saw ME prove it, but because you were fed, and were filled.” Don’t work only for what you can put in your belly. One of these days, you’re going to die, and what good will that be? What good will the food you put in your belly do for you on that day? (John 6:27).
In verses 28 and 29 they asked HIM, “What shall we do, that we might work the works of GOD? JESUS answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that you believe on HIM whom HE has sent.” But they all missed the point. They wanted, as people do today, to have HIM show them a sign. People today say, “Give us more bread, fill our stomachs, or give us money,” instead of saying they have faith in JESUS as GOD who came into the world in the flesh to save their souls!
“They said unto HIM, What sign do you show us? [No man can ‘say unto HIM, What doest THOU?’ (Daniel 4:35). But these ask JESUS, What doest THOU? If you’re that prophet Moses spoke of, well,] Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, HE gave them bread from Heaven to eat [as though Moses did give the bread from Heaven to eat. JESUS answering them, said,] Moses didn’t give you that bread from Heaven; but MY FATHER gives you the true BREAD from HEAVEN. For the BREAD of GOD is HE which comes down from Heaven [by the HOLY SPIRIT into the virgin Mary’s womb] and gives [MY] life unto the world” (John 6:30-33).
They said, “LORD, evermore give us this bread” (John 6:34). JESUS, in so many words, told them that if they believed what HE said, then HE becomes “the bread of life” to them, but only if they believe what HE SAYS. “I AM THE BREAD OF LIFE. He that comes to ME shall never hunger; and he that believes on ME [that I AM GOD the WORD, the BREAD OF LIFE] shall never thirst. But I said unto you, That ye also have seen ME [and MY miracles, and heard what I’ve said], and you believe not. All that the FATHER gives ME will come to ME [JESUS is saying, GOD the FATHER obviously has not given you to ME because you do not come to ME for eternal LIFE. If you don’t have faith in ME, it’s because MY FATHER hasn’t given it to you. If the FATHER gives anyone to ME] I will in no wise cast out.
“For I came down from HEAVEN, not to do MY own will, but the will of HIM that sent ME. And this is the FATHER’S will which has sent ME, that of all which HE has given ME I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. And this is the will of HIM that sent ME, that every one which seeth the SON, and believeth on HIM, may have everlasting LIFE: and I will raise him up at the last day.
“The Jews [who the FATHER obviously didn’t give to JESUS] then murmured at HIM, because HE [THE WORD OF GOD] said, I am the BREAD which came down from HEAVEN. And they said, Is not this JESUS, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How is it then that HE saith that HE came down from HEAVEN?”
JESUS told them again, you cannot come to ME because the FATHER has not sent you to ME! “No man can come to ME, except the FATHER that has sent ME draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day” (John 6:34-44).
Deuteronomy 4:9-13 tells us, “Only take heed to yourselves, and keep your soul diligently, lest you forget the things your eyes have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life: but teach them to your sons, and your sons' sons; Specially the day you stood before the LORD thy GOD in Horeb, when the LORD said unto me [Moses], Gather ME the people together, and I will make them hear MY WORDS, that they may learn to fear ME all the days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach their children.
“And you came near and stood under the mountain; and the mountain burned with fire unto the midst of Heaven, with darkness, clouds, and thick darkness. And the LORD spake unto you out of the midst of the fire: you heard the voice of the WORDS. And HE declared unto you HIS covenant [the TEN COMMANDMENTS. JESUS said HE didn’t come to destroy or do away with the moral law, HE came to fulfill it, to keep it, and to show us we are to keep it also if we are to be members of HIS BODY, born again of the SPIRIT (Matthew 5:17).]”
JESUS told the devil on the mountain that “man does not live by bread only [but by THE BREAD OF LIFE, which is JESUS, THE WORD (John 1:14)], but by every WORD which proceeds from the MOUTH OF GOD” (Matthew 4:4).
Deuteronomy 4:30-31: “When you are in tribulation, and all these things are come upon you, even in the latter days, if you turn to the LORD thy GOD, and shall be obedient to HIS voice; (for the LORD thy GOD is a merciful GOD;) HE will NOT forsake you, neither destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which HE swear unto them.”
How could we possibly get closer to GOD THE WORD than to eat HIS FLESH and drink HIS BLOOD? HE said if we don’t, we have no LIFE in us. In John 6:54 He says, “Whoso eateth MY FLESH [by faith], and drinketh MY BLOOD, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.”
When it comes to us, everything we do is by faith. The LORD tells us to do something, and we do it. If someone tells you, “No one is perfect,” they lie. You’d better be perfect! Only that what is perfect gets into Heaven. People who say, “No one is perfect” are those who say water baptism saves you. They don’t have the SPIRIT. If they did, they wouldn’t say those false things. They are Satan’s evangelists, those who say GOD is weak and the devil is strong. Don’t believe them. Consume the WORD of GOD. You will be strong! Stay away from all negative talk, from the government, from the media, from television, and from all of the secular school system. Eat the FLESH and drink the BLOOD of JESUS.
Keep busy distributing my literature, winning souls, and staying in prayer to GOD through JESUS only, not through Mary, and not through other departed saints. Keep Holy Communion in one of my churches or a very scriptural church.
If you’re not born again of the HOLY SPIRIT yet, then say this prayer:
My LORD and my GOD, have mercy upon my soul, a sinner. 1 I believe that JESUS CHRIST is the SON of the living GOD. 2 I believe that HE died on the cross and shed HIS precious blood for the forgiveness of all my former sins. 3 I believe that GOD raised JESUS from the dead by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT 4 and that HE sits on the right hand of GOD at this moment, hearing my confession of sin and this prayer. 5 I open up the door of my heart, and I invite YOU into my heart, LORD JESUS. 6 Wash all of my filthy sins away in the precious blood that YOU shed in my place on the cross at Calvary. 7 YOU will not turn me away, LORD JESUS; YOU will forgive my sins and save my soul. I know because YOUR WORD, the Bible, says so. 8 YOUR WORD says that YOU will turn no one away, and that includes me. 9 Therefore, I know that YOU have heard me, and I know that YOU have answered me, and I know that I am saved. 10 And I thank YOU, LORD JESUS, for saving my soul, and I will show my thankfulness by doing as YOU command and sin no more.11
Now that you are saved, serve GOD with all of your heart, soul, mind, and strength (Mark 12:30).12 Be baptized, fully submerged in water, in the name of the FATHER, of the SON, and of the HOLY SPIRIT.13 Diligently study the King James Version Bible and do what it says till the day you die.14
Then, as JESUS commands, be a soul-winner. You can do this by becoming a distributor of Pastor Alamo’s literature. We print Pastor Alamo’s literature in many languages, and we ship it all over the world free of charge. We spend millions of dollars on paper and shipping, so we need your prayers and financial help.
If you want the world saved, as JESUS commands, then don’t rob GOD of HIS tithes and offerings. GOD said, “Will [you] rob GOD? Yet ye have robbed ME. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed THEE? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed ME, even this whole nation [and this whole world]. Bring ye all the tithes [a ‘tithe’ is 10% of your gross income] into the storehouse, that there may be meat [Spiritual food] in MINE house [souls saved], and prove ME now herewith, saith the LORD of HOSTS, if I will not open you the windows of Heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of HOSTS. And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of HOSTS” (Malachi 3:8-12).
