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.

 

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?"

 

For this purpose God became flesh

Luke 4:18-19 The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.

As we pass through another Christmas season, we need not get lost in its festivities alone instead we  need to use the season to remind ourselves  again what the coming of our Lord truly represents and why as believers it is an occasion which calls for celebration. We need to ask ourselves the question what does the coming of the Lord represents and what does it mean to my walk of faith. There is a reason why we celebrate at Christmas and a reason for the prevailing atmosphere of  festivity, therefore we must be careful not to lose focus of the real reason behind why we do this.

Appreciating the gift on offer in Christ Jesus

 I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh. - Ezekiel 11:19

The gift of God that is his salvation which we as followers of Christ have come into remains a priceless one, and this becomes apparent as we explore its true value by looking at the numerous benefits it delivers to us. There are several aspect of this gift that we ought to savour and in the process lift up our hearts in praise and thanksgiving to the one who has graciously bestowed unto us by grace this wonderful gift.

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.

Food For The day

Then Peter began to speak: “I now realize how true it is that God does not show favouritismbut accepts from every nation the one who fears him and does what is right.  - Acts 10:34-35.

We are so quick and find it rather too easy to ascribe partiality to God using this to explain away the reason why our faith does not appear to be producing much for us. This we do by ignoring the position of the scripture and every attribute of God that makes it impossible for him to be partial. The truth be told, God is not partial, rather we need to understand that he has set a standard by which he accepts and deals with everyone- the standard is faith (Romans 1:16-17). The scripture talks about a crowd of witness that we are surrounded by (Hebrews 11, 12:1), it did not stop there, but had this to say to us as well:That you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises. Hebrews 6:12.

Proverbs 17:9
“Whoever would foster love covers over an offense, but whoever repeats the matter separates close friends.”
