Waiting for Someone Else to Feed Us

11.28.2021



A.  To EAT manna (basically... EXPLANATION) all WE have to do is WAIT FOR SOMEONE ELSE to GIVE it to US.


Manna was (TEMPORAL), only good for the day.


It does not continually PRODUCE, but in FACT, gets worms after one day.


It is an OBSOLETE, yet TEMPORAL refreshing for those who struggle with WALKING in the SPIRIT to get a REVELATION about GOD, from GOD, who just WANT to be FED.


Get a hold of this REVELATION,



B.  When Israel struggled with GOD, when they STRUGGLED with BELIEVING HIM, did not TAKE HIS WORD.


WHAT DID THEY DO, EVERY-TIME?



C.  THEY BEGAN TO LIFT UP Egypt...


Numbers 11:5-6


Even though Egypt abused them, Egypt also FED them...



D.  EATING what JESUS IS (BREAD of LIFE) and WAITING for the BREAD of the WILDERNESS (that which IS NOT LIFE) are TWO different things.


Isaiah 55:2


John 6:33;35;48;51


Hunger and thirst are natural expressions of the BASIC human DESIRE and NEED for food and water…. (NATURAL)


One of the clear indicators that something is WRONG PHYSICALLY, is when we LOSE APPETITES.


It is the same spiritually, LOSS of APPETITE.



E.  FOR US, to HUNGER and THIRST for WHAT GOD IS, WHO GOD IS, this is the very ROOT of OUR NEW NATURE, our WALKING IN THE SPIRIT, TO GET A REVELATION “OF” GOD, “FROM” GOD. 


It’s the way God made us.



F.  When there is LITTLE or NO HUNGER and THIRST for the PRESENCE of God, or for HIS WORD, it is an INDICATOR that something is WRONG spiritually.


Oh Beloved, get a REVELATION of this!



G.  Because HUNGER and THIRST is so basic to human nature, it OFTEN finds FULFILLMENT in OTHER areas (Egypt)rather than in SEEKING God.



H.  Much as eating UNHEALTHY (Egypt) JUNK FOOD can DULL PHYSICAL APPETITES, so that which is NOT OF GOD can dull our SPIRITUAL APPETITES. 


Isaiah 55:2
