The Passover

I have finally torn myself away from all my preoccupations, and battles with Satan to comment on the Passover, and its significance in the lives of God's children.  Jesus admonished his brothers and sisters thus:  "Labour not for the meat which perishes, but for that meat: which endures to everlasting life, which the son of man shall give unto you"(John 6:27).

Of course, the whole world is busy labouring for the meet which perishes.  The rich, despite the wealth they already have, are striving to become richer, and the middle class, whoever they are, are also striving for greater material possessions.  On the other hand, the poor, who no cares about, are either begging, or adopting devious means to get the meat that perishes.  But unless they are invited to eat of the bread of God, that came down from heaven (John 6:33), they will all perish.

If we turn from the world, to look at those who think they will be eating the bread from heaven this evening, we would be shocked and astonished at what the malevolence of the devil have done to their minds.  I refer, of course, to the former members of The Worldwide Church of God.  Many of the hireling ministers have left WCG, and have started their own churches, despite Christ inspiring the Chosen Vessel to ask the rhetorical question thus:  "Is Christ divided"(1Cor.1:13)?  Yet, David Hulme, Rod Meredith, Jerry Flurry, Dave Pack, Dave Havir, the gang in UCG and hundreds of other individuals have started their own churches to make merchandise of the gullible.  Yet to night at sunset, these crazy people will be eating bread and drinking wine, deceiving themselves it is the bread from heaven.

However, true Christians know that, "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God"(Matt.4:4), and that Christ is the bread of live(John 6:48), that came down from heaven to give eternal life to God's children, who were made subject to vanity (Rom.8:20).

Tonight true Christians will take the Passover to remember Jesus' death, but every day of their lives, they eat of the bread of live, by walking in Jesus footsteps, in obedience to his teachings.  

In contrast, the wicked walk behind Jesus, because they saw the miracles, and were fed(John 6:26).  These will all perish, for their god is their belly, and their glory is their shame.
