Hi
Moving on

  Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father. There is one who accuses you: Moses, on whom you have set your hope.  For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote of me.  But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe my words??
John 5:45-‬47 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.5.45-47.ESV             


This is a very interesting little section Moses wrote quite a lot of the Old Testament and much of it was about the coming of Christ and the thing he would do from the very beginning of Genesis where he tells us of the creation of man in the image of God  the first Adam which is Israel and the last Adam which is Christ.
Its interesting that both Israel And Christ follow the same path the first Adam and last Adam are created in the same way.

Love and Peace

     After this Jesus went away to the other side of the Sea of Galilee, which is the Sea of Tiberias. And a large crowd was following him, because they saw the signs that he was doing on the sick. Jesus went up on the mountain, and there he sat down with his disciples. Now the Passover, the feast of the Jews, was at hand. Lifting up his eyes, then, and seeing that a large crowd was coming toward him, Jesus said to Philip, ?Where are we to buy bread, so that these people may eat??
John 6:1-‬5 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.6.1-5.ESV         


Its surprising that these crowds that followed him and seen all the wonderful things he had done there were still those who did not believe maybe some of them were among those who were to shout crucify him.
Then our Lord asks Philip  where were to buy bread to feed the crowd that had followed him to test Philip.
Makes us think of our Lord as the bread of heaven which was to feed the whole world.

Love and Peace

He said this to test him, for he himself knew what he would do. Philip answered him, ?Two hundred denarii worth of bread would not be enough for each of them to get a little.? One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter?s brother, said to him, ?There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish, but what are they for so many??
John 6:6-‬9 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.6.6-9.ESV         


Of course our Lord knew exactly what he would do all these things were planned in advance he knows the end from the beginning all this was to test the faith of his decipels.
Not forgetting of course he is the bread that came down from heaven to feed the whole world with the word of God.

Love and Peace

     Jesus said, ?Have the people sit down.?  Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, about five thousand in number. Jesus then took the loaves, and when he had given thanks, he distributed them to those who were seated. So also the fish, as much as they wanted. And when they had eaten their fill, he told his disciples, ?Gather up the leftover fragments, that nothing may be lost.?
John 6:10-‬12 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.6.10-12.ESV         


Truly a great miracle to feed so many with so little maybe this was to show us how he would feed the world as the bread of heaven that there would be enough and plenty over this an even greater miracle so let us give thanks for this wonderful bread from heaven which gives eternal life.

Love and Peace

     When the people saw the sign that he had done, they said, ?This is indeed the Prophet who is to come into the world!?   Perceiving then that they were about to come and take him by force to make him king, Jesus withdrew again to the mountain by himself.
John 6:14-‬15 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.6.14-15.ESV       


Its only when they saw the miracles did they believe but many would fall away or believe the lie spread by the priest that it was through satan that he did miracles.
At this time the crowd wanted to make him king but his time had not come he had not come as a King but as a suffering servant but he will come as a King after his resurrection and the gospel would be preached to all the earth then he will return in the same way he left the earth in a cloud and every eye will see.

Love and Peace

     When evening came, his disciples went down to the sea, got into a boat, and started across the sea to Capernaum. It was now dark, and Jesus had not yet come to them. The sea became rough because a strong wind was blowing. When they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and coming near the boat, and they were frightened. But he said to them, ?It is I; do not be afraid.?  Then they were glad to take him into the boat, and immediately the boat was at the land to which they were going.
John 6:16-‬21 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.6.16-21.ESV           


Here we have more miracles its wonderful what faith can do it seams there are nothing that can keep our Lord from reaching us we most have faith and he will be with us.

Love and Peace

      On the next day the crowd that remained on the other side of the sea saw that there had been only one boat there, and that Jesus had not entered the boat with his disciples, but that his disciples had gone away alone. Other boats from Tiberias came near the place where they had eaten the bread after the Lord had given thanks. So when the crowd saw that Jesus was not there, nor his disciples, they themselves got into the boats and went to Capernaum, seeking Jesus.  When they found him on the other side of the sea, they said to him, ?Rabbi, when did you come here??
John 6:22-‬25 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.6.22-25.ESV       


It's interesting that our Lord always leaves us wondering what is coming next we always are left wondering when we read our bibles what is coming next its always interesting we are always looking for more and it never disappoints us there's always something more to find the question is do we find if or dose our Lord give it to us.

Love and Peace

Hi

     Jesus answered them, ?Truly, truly, I say to you, you are seeking me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate your fill of the loaves.  Do not work for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you. For on him God the Father has set his seal.?
John 6:26-‬27 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.6.26-27.ESV         


This is our Lord pointing to himself the bread of heaven which feeds us every day through his words so let us set aside a little time every day so we can feed on this bread that came down from heaven which gives us eternal life

Love and Peace
