Bread, water, and clothing are very important for survival from day to day. In fact, many battles have been lost in war because of a lack of supplies to maintain the troops. Spiritual supplies of bread, water, and clothing are essential as well! We need to be clothed with righteousness, to have our soul and spirit fed with the Word of God and the Water of Life. The Spirit’s Water, Bread, and Clothing makes us the salt of the earth and the light of the world. That’s because the Spirit of Christ lives within us. We can look around us and envision a world without being fed the Word of God, without the Water of Life to enable us to grow spiritually, and without the clothing of the Spirit of Righteousness. Rumors become louder and louder of the implementation of the system of the anti-Christ. The anti-Christ is forging ahead within the progress of the modern god of this technological age. Knowledge and information abounds in astounding ways, but there is very, very little knowledge and information about the Living Word of God, what Christ did for us on the Cross to bring the Water of life, and the Righteousness of the Holy Ghost. Jesus said…., I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by me.
When the Church becomes anything other than a distributor of the Word of God, fails to bring refreshing through the Water of Life, and loses it’s clothes of the Righteousness of the Holy Ghost, then the Great Tribulation is next. The Church of today is nearer and nearer to being anything except the light of the world and the salt of the earth! By this, we know Jesus is coming soon! Babes who are born of the Cross of Christ need to be fed life-giving Water, soul-nourishing Bread, and to be clothed with the Spirit of Righteousness; the same way a baby born in this world needs to be fed and clothed. Can you envision a babe being depended on to feed, water, and clothe a parent? When the world is lacking the Spirit’s Bread, Water, and Righteousness, it is like having a youth to rule over them. Youth referring to people who are inexperienced with the Word of God, lacking the Water of Life that flows from the Cross of Christ, and stripped of the Righteousness of the holy Ghost! Jesus said…., I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by me.
With very little access to the Living God’s bread, Water, and Clothing, then there would be only inexperienced Babes of God, born from the Cross of Christ, to act as a pivotal role in being the salt of the earth and light of the world. It would enable the ushering in of the system of the anti-Christ corresponding to information and knowledge that flow from the modern god of this technological age. When the True Church no longer provides the Message of the Cross and instead provides a worldly philosophy, then there will be a lack of maturing Children of God born from the Cross of Christ. It’s like refusing to feed, water, and clothe infants, and that stifles their proper growth into mature adults. Jesus said…., I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by me.
Without the Word of God, without the Water of life that flows from the Cross of Christ, and without the Righteousness of the Holy Ghost, there would be a lack of mighty spiritual people. There would be lacking of people willing to fight the good fight of faith, a lack of judgment corresponding to the Spirit of God, a lack people bringing forth God’s Word, a lack of spiritual prudence, a lack of spiritual forefathers, a lack of leaders of the army of God, a lack of honorable men of God, a lack of people counseling through God’s Spirit, a lack of those able to design things according to God’s Spirit, and a lack of Spirit-filled orators of the Message of the Cross. The anti-Christ intends to murder the soul and spirit of every human being by making the intellect, knowledge, and information more important than God. The anti-Christ intends to murder the Message of the Cross of Jesus Christ, and intends to murder the Holy Ghost. Satan’s objective is to steal, kill, and destroy the Church, God’s people, and the Spirit of God. BUT, Jesus said…., I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by me.
We should never fear them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear Him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. The destination of the anti-Christ and those who follow the modern god of this technological age is in Hell. As it is written, anyone who causes a Child to stumble, it would be better for that one to tie a mill stone around the neck and to be thrown into the sea. Our salvation during these troubled days is to believe in the heart and to confess with the mouth that Jesus is lord. That separates us from the godless ways of the kingdom of this world and secures for us a place in the Kingdom of God. What Christ did for us at the Cross is to feed us the Word of God, provide us with the Water of life, and to clothe us with the Spirit of Righteousness. With Christ abiding in us, sin is made dormant, inactive, and it does nothing through our tongue, hands, feet, or any other body part. We are not influenced by the power of information and knowledge that enlivens the nature of sin! We know that Jesus said…., I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by me. We pray for our daily Bread, drink in the Water of life that enlivens the spirit, and our spirit and soul is clothed with the Spirit of Righteousness. This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, let it shine. We are the light of the world and the salt of the earth.
“For, behold, the Lord, the Lord of hosts, does take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water. The mighty man, and the man of war, the judge, and the prophet, and the prudent, and the ancient, the captain of fifty, and the honorable man, and the counsellor, and the cunning artificer, and the eloquent orator. And I will give children to be their princes, and babes will rule over them. And the people will be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbour: the child will behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honorable. When a man will take hold of his brother of the house of his father, saying, you have clothing, be you our ruler, and let this ruin be under your hand: In that day will he swear, saying, I will not be an healer; for in my house is neither bread nor clothing: make me not a ruler of the people.”
