HOLY SPIRIT: Do you remember how Our Father miraculously provided for Our Father’s Chosen People during their forty years of travel when they journeyed from their land of captivity to the Promised Land?
ME: First of all, Our Father gave them the Commandments through Patriarch Moses for the spirit part of their lives. Our Father told them that they were going to journey in the wilderness for forty years so that they could learn that they need more than physical food for meaningful lives.
Secondly, through miracles He took care of their clothing needs and food needs. Through miracles of Our Father their clothes and shoes did not wear out for forty years. Our Father did miracles for those who did not have any shoes and their feet did not swell as they walked on hot sand and rocks. Then Our Father also provided manna from Heaven for their food (see Deuteronomy 8:1-4, 29:5).
HOLY SPIRIT: How often did they gather the manna food from Heaven?
ME: The man of each family gathered the amount of manna food that was needed for that day. The amount that a family gathered depended upon the size of the family. On the day before the Sabbath Day they gathered a double amount so they would also have food on the Sabbath Day. (See Exodus 16:17-20.)
HOLY SPIRIT: What happened if they gathered more manna than that which was needed for the daily supply?
ME: It spoiled when they tried to keep it over night, thus they could not eat it and had to dispose of it.
HOLY SPIRIT: This communication is about the prosperity of material things Our Father has planned for His children. This started when Our Father began to develop His Chosen People into a nation as they wandered for forty years after leaving their land of captivity.
First of all, it should be noted that the possibility of prosperity was present with the miracle manna. For, there was enough manna provided by Our Father that His Chosen People could have gathered more than needed for their daily supply.
Secondly, the prosperity of manna was given to the whole group of Our Father’s Chosen People, the nation, or you could say, the Old Testament Church. The manna was on the ground around the encampment of more than two million people when they awakened each morning.
Thirdly, there is a question that arose that needs serious consideration. The question was not, HOW MUCH PROSPERITY OF MANNA DID OUR FATHER GIVE TO EACH FAMILY? But the question was, HOW MUCH OF THE PROSPERITY OF MANNA THAT OUR FATHER GAVE TO THE OLD TESTAMENT CHURCH COULD EACH FAMILY KEEP FOR THEMSELVES?
This is still a concern of Our Father with you Born Again Christians. You still need a daily portion of the spiritual manna of His Word for meaningful lives. Our Father knows that you humans have a tendency that once you begin to enjoy material things, you want more material things to enjoy. The danger is that some may begin to give more priority to enjoying the prosperity of material things then they do daily EATING the spiritual manna of His Word.
In preparation for this report Holy Spirit led me to the following Scriptures.
John 4:32 – But He said to them, I have food to eat which you do not know.
John 4:33 – Therefore the disciples said to one another, No one brought Him anything to eat?
John 4:34 – Jesus said to them, My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to finish His work.
HOLY SPIRIT: When Christ Your Lord was living on Planet Earth, He was more concerned about SPIRITUAL FOOD than He WAS PHYSICAL FOOD.
Revelation 2:17 – He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give to him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knows except he who receives it .
HOLY SPIRIT: As long as a Born Again Christian is living in a physical body on Planet Earth, that one should give priority to the HIDDEN MANNA, that is, both the Living and Written Word.
