"I leave the gift of peace with you--my peace. Not the kind of fragile peace given by the world, but my perfect peace. Don't yield to fear or be troubled in your hearts--instead, be courageous!" (John 14:27) These are the same words Yehweh spoke to Joshua as he began taking the promised land for Israel! (read Joshua 1:8-9) As laid down lovers of Yeshua, we have peace in the chaos and trouble that abounds around us because we belong to a loving, merciful God! We possess a hope and the revelation of the Kingdom to share with others who are lost and searching for an answer in this hour. Our glorious destiny, from Paul's letter to the Romans, states he is convinced that any suffering we endure is less than nothing compared to the magnitude of glory that is about to be unveiled within us. The entire universe is standing on tiptoe, yearning to see the unveiling of God's glorious sons and daughters! Read Romans 8:18-30...What a time to be living!
In John 6:48-51 it reads in The Passion , "I AM the true Bread of Life. Your ancestors ate manna in the desert and died. But standing here before you is the true Bread that comes out of heaven, and when you eat this Bread you will never die. I alone am this living Bread that has come to you from heaven. Eat this Bread and you will live forever. The living Bread I give is my body, which I will offer as a sacrifice so that all may live." There is a difference between eternal life and living forever. The only reason I would die is if there is a record of sin in my DNA. I do not need to die, none of us do. But we need to undergo transformation by applying the body and blood of Jesus. The body and blood of Jesus carry the record of the DNA of God. We can age and die, or we can take the body and blood of Jesus within ourselves, and live forever!. Jesus says in John 6:58, "I am not like the bread your ancestors ate and later died. I am the living Bread that comes from heaven.
