“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in yourselves. He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. For My flesh is true food, and My blood is true drink. He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him. As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who eats Me, he also will live because of Me. This is the bread which came down out of heaven; not as the fathers ate and died; he who eats this bread will live forever.” John 6:53-58.
Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me. Revelation 3:20.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
You who are in Christ by confessing Him as your Lord and believing that I raised Him from the dead, have eaten from the tree of life. He gave that wonderful gift to you the night before He sealed the new and eternal Covenant with Me in His Blood upon the tree of the Cross, the tree of Life. It was so important that I revealed it to My apostle Paul who had not been at the Passover meal with the disciples and Jesus that night. And Paul delivered what I told him to you: “For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which He was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, ‘This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me.’ In the same way He took the cup also after supper, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.’ For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.” 1 Corinthians 11:23-26.
Proclaiming His death until He comes. Why? His death gave you eternal life. He took all your faults, failing, sins, offenses, trespasses, iniquities, shame, guilt, blame, illness, and condemnation to death, and paid them all for you by every drop of His blood and by giving of His mortal life. A life for a life and the life is in the blood, so by blood you make atonement on the altar, and on the mercy seat (the propitiatory). And what did He win for you? Perfection as if your sins had never been. Paid in full. The result? I raised Him from the eternal death to eternal life as acceptance of payment in full and I raised you with Him. For His death was your death to sin, and His life now is your life to Me.
And how did Jesus do it? In the flesh. Romans 8:3. He gave His Body and His Blood for you. And that is the fruit of the tree of the cross. As He hung there His Body and Blood became the fruit of eternal life. The true tree of life, the true fruit of the tree of life for all fallen and sinful mankind.
Adam ate and got in sin, you eat and get out of it. Jesus told the astonished crowd: “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in yourselves. He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. For My flesh is true food, and My blood is true drink. He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him. As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who eats Me, he also will live because of Me. This is the bread which came down out of heaven; not as the fathers ate and died; he who eats this bread will live forever.” John 6:53-58.
Jesus is the bread of life; he who comes to Him will not hunger, and he who believes in Him will never thirst. He who believes has eternal life. Jesus said, “This is the bread which comes down out of heaven, so that one may eat of it and not die. I am the living bread that came down out of heaven; if anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread also which I will give for the life of the world is My flesh.” John 6:50-51.
Now do you see why Paul wrote, “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”— in order that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we would receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.” Galatians 3:13-14. The Blessing of Abraham is the power to prosper and be blessed to be a blessing. It is a blessing of abundance and divine protection in the present life on earth. And what is the promise of the Spirit? Eternal Life. The power, presence, and goodness of God in you now to quicken your mortal body and that will raise you up on the Last Day. Jesus’ pierced heart on the cross poured out blood and water. Living water.
My beloved John had revelation on the Spirit, the water, and the blood. Here is what I showed him, “For whoever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? This is the One who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ; not with the water only, but with the water and with the blood. It is the Spirit who testifies because the Spirit is the truth. For there are three that testify: the Spirit and the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement. If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater; for the testimony of God is this, that He has testified concerning His Son. The one who believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself; the one who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has given concerning His Son. And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life. These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life.” 1 John 5:4-13.
The Spirit—living water to drink for eternal life. And by that living water the Spirit washes and regenerates you and renews you as a new creation in Christ, and Jesus won you the Holy Spirit by His atonement for your sins by His Blood. And I have poured out upon you My power and love richly through My gift of the Spirit which comes to you through Jesus Christ your Savior, so that being justified by His grace you would be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. Titus 3:4-8.
I raised Jesus by amazing power from the depths of hell to the highest exaltation in Heaven. I did it by My Spirit, Ephesians 8:11, and by the Blood of the Eternal Covenant, my apostle Paul tells you that, but you may have missed it, “Now the God of peace (My plans for you are Shalom and not evil), who brought up from the dead the great Shepherd of the sheep through the blood of the eternal covenant, even Jesus our Lord, equip you in every good thing to do His will, working in us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.” Hebrews 13:20-21. And how do I equip you? Same way I did Bezalel and Oholiab, My Spirit on you giving you skill and wisdom for the work I have asked you to accomplish on earth. Exodus 31.
And I raised Jesus as your great High Priest and as the great good Shepherd of the sheep. Also as the Head of the Body of Christ, the Church.
You only really have One Teacher. Jesus. And He told you to come to Him and learn from Him. Paul told you to imitate him as he imitated Christ.
When you read the Gospels, do not be studying so hard only what those who approached Jesus for healing and other requests did to achieve their heart’s desires. Do not just imitate them because you now have, on this side of the Cross, a totally different relationship with Him and with Me than those who were not born again did. Jesus did not tell any of them that they would do the works He did and greater. He asked them to have faith to conduct His power into their lives but He never told them they had the very same power residing in them that was in Him, but now you do. You are now My house and a temple of the Holy Spirit. The resurrection power is IN you and ON you. And you can release it and share it. And you release it by faith in My Word and My Name.
So as you read the Gospels, observe, and study Jesus as your teacher. See what He did when the messengers came from Jairus’ house gave the message that Jairus’ daughter was dead. Do not just look at Jairus response, look at Jesus and imitate Him. Press on with Him. Tell Jairus not to fear but believe and you go lay your hand on the sick or dead and raise them with Jesus. He is in your now, your hope of glory. And whatever you ask in His Name, He will do it, but He will do it now through you, His Body on earth. Act like Jesus when a storm comes and rebuke it and comfort everyone else who is in fear. When there is a lack, put you hands up to Me with Jesus in thanksgiving and blessing and watch things multiply as you share them with others. Speak to the fig trees that fail to produce in your life. Get rid of clutter at the roots. As He is, so are you in this world. Holy, blameless, and powerful by My power in you doing more than you can ask or imagine. He told YOU to cast out demons in His Name. He told YOU who believe in His Name to lay your hands on the sick and they will recover. He told YOU to do the works He did and greater.
Conform to Christ, transform to Christ, imitate Him, and grow in faith, keep your eyes on Him for He is the author, leader, trainer, teacher, and finisher of your faith. He always acted in perfect faith. He never gave up. Even if the blind man only saw partially, He did not give up put spoke a second time till he saw perfectly. Jesus knew I heard Him and He knew the Word worked, no matter what got in the way from the devil’s schemes He pressed in until He had the result that was in My Word. So can you. You are His body now. And He can work with, in, and through you, by the Spirit, the Water, and the Blood. Ask Him for a drink. Ask Him for the bread. He is knocking to enter your heart, and if you open to Him, He will come and dine with you. And He brings you the fruit of the tree of life. Himself.
I love you. You have it all in Christ. Everything is yours. Why be so bashful and limited? Come with confidence and take the Kingdom. After all, I have been most please to give it to you already. You who are in Christ are with Me always and everything I have is yours. Selah.
