John 6:49 -50

Your forefathers ate the manna in the desert, yet they died. But here is the bread that comes down from heaven, which a man may eat and not die.

 

Seeking, Knocking and Asking after the Scripture

So Philip ran to him, and heard him reading the prophet Isaiah, and said, “Do you understand what you are reading?” And he said, “How can I, unless someone guides me?” – Acts 8:30-31.

This section is dedicated to providing teachings and guidelines on specific passages from the scriptures. Reading the word is one thing, understanding clearly the message that is read is another. In this section our prayer is that as a ministry we would be inspired through the power of the Holy Spirit to do what Philip did with the Ethiopian eunuch.

What did he do? Well he was able to open the eyes of the Ethiopian to see the riches which salvation through Christ made available. As a result, the life of the Ethiopian was never the same, for he received the gift of salvation there and then.

So the eunuch answered Philip and said, “I ask you, of whom does the prophet say this, of himself or of some other man?” Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning at this Scripture, preached Jesus to him. Now as they went down the road, they came to some water. And the eunuch said, “See, here is water. What hinders me from being baptized?” –Acts 8:34-35.

It is amazing how much difference the revelation of the truth of the gospel can make in our lives. All the Ethiopian did was to inquire after the scripture, he got more than he bargained for.
