The two Angels beckoned unto the Disciples while looking up on the mountain where Jesus ascended before their eyes. "Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. 10 And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, 11 who also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.”
This is just a tip of the iceberg. I hope what The Apostle Peter and Paul said of his imminent return gives another insights of his earthly returns.Brethren Christ comes.Keep looking up for the trumpet is at hand.Be at alert.

Jesus Ascension

Jesus Ascension
He is coming Again.Be prepared.

Divine Food

I have the injunction to restrict myself to the Bible, and here, i am going to write on how men stayed without food for some days.I am not going to write less than what  the bible said about those men.I am going to write on our own  Divine food today.

Divine food started from the garden of Eden.That fruit eaten by our progenitors Adam and Eve is a divine food.It is divine because no one can ever see that fruit again.It has been eaten once and the effect has ever been around and within us.We have the consequences of the  eaten fruit with us even  as you read this blog.
Only a Man ate the fruit with his wife in the garden of Eden,but the billions today are suffering of its evil consequences.The good side of the fruit is that it actually made one wise.It is an eye opener, and i think, they, by virtue of their hiding away from God is not divinely fed on them by God.They are wrong to have taken the food on the wrong command of the serpent.

There are others too,i must make mention of them from the Bible.Moses is another good example.He was in the cloud forty days and forty nights.A good lover of food like me will calculate the number of bowls of  raw rice and beans i must pack up for the cloud visitation.A bundle of firewood too must follow me up the mountain,in fact,at first i can't go up there alone.However the fact is that,Moses never knew he will spent up to those days in the mountain.He never knew God is going to delayed him up there but God who knew he is going to stay longer brought the cloud down so as to rescue Moses from hunger.If the cloud has not been there or let me say if God has not asked him to come up,Moses would have complained of hunger.He was alive as a result of business between him and God.God became his strength and i am sure if Elijah was ministered to by an Angel who provided him with Angelic food,Moses' case could be likened to what happened to Elijah.The angels could have fed Moses too within those forty days and night he has been in the cloud.We read that  when Elijah  was asked by an Angel of God to arise and eat a divinely prepared food a baked cake and water he drank from a cruse of water.The Angel came twice.That implies that a single Angelic prepared meal  lasted him for twenty days on his journey to the mount of Horeb.God is great to have fed him that way,if you the passage carefully ,you will discover that ,it was after his regret and his wish for death that the Angel of God asked him to arise and eat.He was going to the mountain of God.The food sustained them.You can read for yourself in 1 Kings 19:1-8 and  Exodus 24:12-18.

These two men ate Divine food and were strengthened to do what other human being could not  do.Moses was in the cloud for forty days and forty nights,Elijah journeyed  the great journey  through the same days and nights to the mount Horeb, the mountain of God.I have other  examples  that  were  quite different from the two i have written about above.

One case is Moses,the second is Elijah but the third case which  is Manna is a visual Divine food.just like how we can describe the food the Angel brought to Elijah.The Manna was Divinely  produced and provided for the commercial consumption of the children of Israel with strings of rules attached to it.It is a sweetened  food and an Angelic food.The children of Israel were to pack the food except on the sabbath.God has reserved the day ,a holy day in the history of the old Israel.

Prophet Elisha too just like Moses were able to turn around food.Moses turn Marah to sweetness  just by casting a stick ordained by God into the bitter  water and Elisha was able to neutralized  the poisonous porridge.Those incident portrayed the evidence of divine hands.These God's prophets were able to drew God into their chalenges and they overcame.

Do you know that Jesus fasted forty days and forty nights because of Divine strength in him.Devil would have used him to create counterfeit food during the days of his fasting.Glory be to God  Christ prevailed through the word of God.

The truth today is that no one can feed us with those kind of food again for strength,for the main reason those people ate those food is for them to have Divine strength and do exploit beyond their human capacity.Our Divine food today is the word of God,the Bible.The Bible and other avenues we can hear genuine word of God.To go in the strength of God, daily, we must be supplying our souls with the  fuel,the word of God.We can't afford to do nothing less or far from the word of God.How often do you thirst for the word of God.How often have you allow the in-flood of the word of God into your life? The word of God is not for a particular class of people.Adults need the word and so do the young,we all need the word of God in us to survive these evil days ahead us.

Take heed to what you hear and also to what you read.Take heed to who you go out with and to whom you associate with.God will help you if you can authoritatively say like David in his song of Psalms 119:11 "Thy word have i hid in my heart, that i might not sin against thee".

Have you the word of God in your lives?
