John 6:35

Then Jesus declared, I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.



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!

He knew already.

 When Jesus looked up and saw a great crowd coming toward him, he said to Philip,“Where shall we buy bread for these people to eat?”  He asked this only to test him, for he already had in mind what he was going to do. – John 6:5-6

The scripture never said we would not be faced with challenges or even pressing needs that would challenge even our faith, rather what the scripture teaches and helps us to understand is how to deal with the limitations which those challenging needs exposes. 


Put on the full armour of God- The sword of the spirit

“Therefore put on the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes you may be able to stand your ground and after you have done everything to stand..  And the sword of the spirit which is,  the word of God” (Ephesians 6: 13, 17).

Speaking about the word being the sword of the spirit, we do need to make certain clarifications; you see the word that is being referred to here is the word of God as revealed to us through the scriptures. 


Redeemed with a new identity

But now, thus says the LORD, who created you, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel: “ Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine. – Isaiah 43:1.

One of the important messages we gather from our redemption, one which this exposition sets out to bring to our awareness, is the identity which the redeemed has come into and is now called to walk in. It is easy to conclude that to be called the redeemed simply mean a people who have been set free. No one would argue with that because there is a valid point in that, but such a conclusion would be a little bit premature. Why is that you may ask?


Faith and belief

And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed and therefore I spoke,” we also believe and therefore speak – 2 Corinthians 4:13.

The question often arises what is the difference between faith and belief, what does it mean for one to have faith and for one to believe? Do both words mean the same and do they convey the same message to us?

There is the need to try as much as possible especially with the insight which the scripture and the light which the Holy Spirit sheds to answer the questions which these two words indeed elicit as we ponder over them. The truth be told the more we ponder over these two words and the more we meditate upon the true meaning of faith we would begin to see that the use of these words were indeed meant to convey  different messages to us.


All things are possible to the one who believes

 ‘“If you can”?’ said Jesus. ‘Everything is possible for one who believes.’ Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, ‘I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!’

Meditating upon this conversation between Jesus and the man whose son the disciples of Jesus could not heal, a couple of points came to the fore. These are points that can help us as believers to see beyond the unbelief that hinders faith and possibly come into the manner of faith that was lacking in those disciples. It was the operation of the power of unbelief in their lives that drew the rebuke of Jesus, labelling them a perverse and faithless generation;

Food For The day

Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. - Mathew 7:13.

I want you to know that the path to salvation as revealed to us in Christ is not that which is popular and if subjected to democratic process it won't receive many votes. This is where as a believers we need to be very careful in our walk of faith because the path that leads to life as revealed to us in our salvation is not conditioned upon the votes of majority,  rather it solely rest upon the will of the Almighty Jehovah. We must never forget that to find this gate and to walk on this path implies being separated from the world, this is the reason why it is difficult, for many love the ways of the world.


Hebrews 7:25
“Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.”
