John 6:48

I am the bread of life.

 

Welcome

Surely you will summon nations you know not, and nations you do not know will come running to you, because of the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, for he has endowed you with splendor - Isaiah 55:5

It gives me great joy to welcome you to the official site of the 'Bread From Heaven Ministries', the place where we serve the bread that nourishes the soul. Our mission is simple and it is to propagate the word of God, to feed the citizens of God's kingdom with the ever living, ever powerful word of God that is able to open each one of us into God's very best. As citizens of this Kingdom, your life is unique and precious to God, your soul more especially, God is interested in every aspect of your existence. God is not only interested in the deliverance of your soul, he is equally interested in the prosperity of your soul. It is my prayer therefore that God will make your time in this place a blessed one. Shalom!

Man does not live by bread alone

Day after day, believers are confronted by circumstances and propositions that are similar to what Jesus went through when he was tempted by the devil in the wilderness. Day after day believers are being called upon to make difficult choices based on circumstantial events going on around them. The people who are called by God's name daily are faced with conditions that appear so overwhelming and impossible to resist. Pressed for some form of response, the people of God react on daily basis to these conditions but sadly, many do so outside of the will of God as revealed through the word of God.

The full picture of what you are confronted with is incomplete without the perspective which the the word of God provides, this is why man does not live by bread (circumstantial or physical inputs) alone, but by every word that proceeds from God. You cannot respond to any challenge or accept any proposition or believe any report or embark upon any venture without first cross checking it with the word of God.

As believers the question that we need to always ask irrespective of the circumstance we find ourselves is this: "What does God through his words have to say about this?"

 

A day of reckoning

Because of the violence against your brother Jacob, you will be covered with shame; you will be destroyed forever. On the day you stood aloof while strangers carried off his wealth and foreigners entered his gates and cast lots for Jerusalem, you were like one of them. - Obadiah 1:10 — 11

Perhaps one of the reasons why we find the Old Testament and indeed the book of prophets hard to read and deal with is the directness with which their messages speak to us eschewing all manner of political correctness. Doing so not only by revealing our failings to us but also reminding us that there are consequences and a day of reckoning, a day when the Judge of the universe has set aside when he would demand accountability from his creation.

Where is God when it all tastes bitter?

Print PDF

 Ruth 1:20 — 21 “Don’t call me Naomi,” she told them. “Call me Mara, because the Almighty has made my life very bitter. I went away full, but the Lord has brought me back empty. Why call me Naomi? The Lord has afflicted me; the Almighty has brought misfortune upon me.”

Listening to Naomi lament her woes, while attributing it all to God evokes the familiar sentiments that one has become accustomed to over the years. Blaming God when everything goes pear shaped and when we cannot understand what is going on around us in the midst of downturn of life.

When grace and faith seems not enough

Print PDF

Judges 11:30 And Jephthah made a vow to the Lord: “If you give the Ammonites into my hands,

There is an important message to take on board in our relationship with God, one which appears to have gone missing on Jephthah when he decided to make the vow mentioned in this passage, one which brought him great sorrow. To start with why did Jephthah make this vow?

Food For The day

For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal. - 2 Corinthians 4:18b

The complete story your life is not told by the circumstances that you can see alone. As they say there is more than meets the eye, the complete picture is a combination of what you can see and how the word of God interprets it. Until you get the interpretation, do not accept it as the truth

 

Matthew 1:20-21
“But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, ?Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.?”
