JOHN 6:48-59 JESUS SAID TO THEM, I AM THE BREAD OF LIFE PART 2

00:0000:00

John 6:48 "I am the bread of life. 49 "Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and are dead. 50 "This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die. 51 "I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world." 52 The Jews therefore quarreled among themselves, saying, "How can this Man give us His flesh to eat?"53 Then Jesus said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you. 54 "Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. 55 "For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed. 56 "He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him. 57 "As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me. 58 "This is the bread which came down from heaven--not as your fathers ate the manna, and are dead. He who eats this bread will live forever."59 These things He said in the synagogue as He taught in Capernaum.

 In this second part of the Bread of Life Discourse Jesus is going to drive the final wedge between Himself and the Religious folks.  They aren’t really interested in knowing who He is, so He will make it harder and harder to have anything to do with Him.  Jesus really loves us all, but when we keep on rejecting Him then He finally makes us hard and it’s not that He cannot save us, but that we will not come to Him because our hearts are so hard and bitter.  Have you read the parables?  Jesus begins to use them as a merciful tool, because they will not believe in Him, He makes them less guilty in the judgment as He keeps them from knowing more and thus being held accountable for more.  Luke 12:48 "But he who did not know, yet committed things deserving of stripes, shall be beaten with few. For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more. (NKJV) The hottest place in hell will be for the person who has sat in church or read the scriptures all their life, yet not trusted in Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

Paul put it this way in 2 Timothy. 2Ti 3:1 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 6 For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, 7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. This was the Pharisees and is the religious people of today, beware that you are not one of them.

 Our mission is to spread the gospel and to go to the least of these with the life-changing message of Jesus Christ; We reach out to those the World has forgotten.
