BLOG 56 BREAD ALONE

BLOG 56 MAN SHALL NOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE

In Matthew 4:4, we are told; “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.” Bread won’t feed men’s soul! Obedience to every word of God is what we need. Bread feeds the body, but it will not uphold and sustain the soul. When troubles and trials come, we need the firm foundation of the Word of God to strengthen our lives. Luke 6:48,49 We are to build our house on the Rock of God’s Word! Jesus is our Rock. We build our house on the foundation of God’s Word, and when the storms come against us, we won’t be washed away.
Although the devil has been defeated by Jesus on the cross,(Colossians 2:15) he is still coming to the minds’ of people to tempt them with his lies and deception. To be a good soldier, we must be aware of the tactics and craftiness of our enemy. We fight the good fight of faith with the Bible Scriptures and we overcome our enemy.1Timothy 6:12 Paul said in 1Timothy1:18, “This charge I commit unto thee son,Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare.” “And they overcame him (satan) by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony….” Revelation 12:11 The Word of God is powerful, and alive (Hebrews 4:12), but unless we believe and speak it, it will not do us any good. “For the word of God is quick (means living) and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing (division) asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner (able to judge) of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” In John 1:1, we read that: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” The Word of God is Jesus! More proof is in Revelation 19:13, that says Jesus’ name is “The Word of God.” Satan knows who Jesus is, “the Word of God” that defeated him! He hates the Word of God because he knows that is where the mighty power of God resides. When we have been born again from above by the Spirit of God, the power resides in us. See Romans 8:11. The enemy does everything that he can to steal the Word from us! Mark 4 shows us the parable of the sower of the seed. The seed is the Word of God. If the seed is sown on hard ground, it has no deep root and will wither away. In Mark 4:15, …”Satan comes immediately, and takes away the word that was sown in their hearts.” Unbelief, fear, troubles, are some things that satan uses to steal the word from God’s children.
With his lies, he convinces many that the Bible is just a book written by men instead of being God breathed, and therefore not very important. See 2Peter 1:21, “For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man; but holy men of God spake (spoke) as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” He, also uses all kinds of distractions to keep others away from the Scriptures. If a person does not believe that the Bible is a sacred book, they will not put any importance in reading, or studying it.
There are religions that satan operates in and has twisted the Scriptures so much that people are ignorant of their true meaning and of their great value. Religions are created by men! They set up rules and doctrines to follow that has absolutely nothing at all to do with God’s Word. There is no other way to know what we are being taught, or hearing (if it’s the truth,or not), except judging it by the Bible. Such religions are false; they are not of God. They “seem” holy and serene, but are not. If you are involved in a religion, you are not involved with God. Religion kills; it is not alive. Religions are the traditions of men and they make the Word of God of none effect.Mark 7:13 Joshua 1:8, tells us: “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein; for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” We are told in Proverbs 4 verses 20-24, to attend to God’s Word because they are life and health to those who find them.
The devil is a spirit; he has to work through men and women. He has sent, and is still sending multitudes to hell and destruction through these false religions! This is the reason that it is so urgent that we know God’s Word by heart and are able to hear Holy Spirit’s voice. He is our teacher. 1John 2:20,27 By knowing the Scriptures, we can discern good and evil. Remember, the enemy can transform (change) himself into an “angel of light.” 2 Corinthians 11:14
We can not leave our eternal destiny ( and that of our loved ones) up to other people! We must know these things for ourselves. I repeat, the only way to judge the truth is by the Holy Spirit through the Holy book called the Bible. You are doing yourself much harm, if you are trusting any other books or material. Just because the word spirit or god is mentioned in these books, doesn’t make them the truth. Jesus said in John 17:17, “Thy word is truth, Sanctify them by thy truth.” Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. John 14:6 The real God gave us His Word to live by. It is filled with wisdom and instruction to lead us to all truth by God’s Holy Spirit. John 16:13
The Bible Scriptures are an investment in our lives and the only way to live an abundant life is to know God’s Word and to take it to heart. We are “the pearl of great price” (Matthew 13:46) to our Heavenly Father! He sent His only Son to earth to save us from destruction. Psalms 107:20 We are bought with the price of Jesus’ precious, shed, blood. We are not our own. 1Corinthians 6:20
I pray that you take heed to what our Father God is saying to us. You, your loved ones, and many other lives may depend on this knowledge. Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. God’s voice is His Word. The Holy Spirit gives us the Word that brings life and makes a big difference in how we live.
This is faith cabin saying bye for now until next time. Love, blessings and smiles (:
