Bread alone

(1/44) > >>

Nathan:
Matthew 4:4
But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

What is the "bread alone"?

redhotmagma:
stones are the laws written, satan told him to turn them into bread, bread alone is the written word

Nathan:
Absolutely agree . . .so . . .then what you'd have to then also say is that the written word isn't ENOUGH .. .yes?  That basing a belief according to what is written would be ill-advised . . .yes?

Without the "proceeding" word a "flowing/moving/breathing" word.  One that isn't already written in a book, but instead, one that is written upon the hearts . . .which goes back to "UPON THIS ROCK".  It's the INWARD unveiling in us that Christ builds his church on . . .his church consists of direct revelational truth from God to man.  "That" word is what leads us to ascended places from which we enter into different perspectives of kingdom principles . . .from which . . .when we do read what "is" written, we see it to be saying completely different things than reasoning and logic has taught.

The proceeding word is a Word that moves, that flows "from" us.  The kingdom of God does not come by observation, it's "in you". 

Beloved Servant:

"For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life...."

Yahweh wrote on the tablets of stone; Jesus in the earth.

Ezekiel 36:26;
I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh

2 Corinthians 3:3;
You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.

Ephesians 2:15;
by abolishing in his flesh the law with its commandments and regulations.
His purpose was to create in himself one new man out of the two, thus making peace

I'm pretty much with you, although I pause just a little with your statement "basing a belief according to what is written would be ill-advised.."  I think I may understand what you truly believe, but I'd personally say it is important to base our beliefs on what is written, ALONG WITH the Spirit's enlightenment and revelation - what He writes on our heart - remembering the written and revealed work together. 

Amen, not JUST the Bread, but also "every word proceeding".  IMO, if a person doesn't have the written, they can still know God, because He can reveal Himself any way He pleases.  But to those of us who have been given the written (one  of the ways He reveals Himself) I believe it behooves us even more to handle with care.  By His grace may I do so.  Because to whom much is given, much is required.
