The Bread Of Revival
By: Daniel Adams

The New Creation

The blood of Jesus has erased your past. When Jesus hung on the cross, He said, "it is finished." The veil in the temple was torn from top to bottom and the Holy Spirit came out of the tabernacle made with the hands of man never to dwell there in again. Under the New Covenant the Holy Spirit has made His permanent home on the inside of the believer's heart. The child of God has literally become the tabernacle of God. Everywhere that you go, He goes, because He lives on the inside of you. Under the Old Testament the law was given to govern the spiritually dead and to reveal the need for a savior. If you have been born again then you are alive in Christ. Not only did Jesus come to purchase our eternal redemption, He also came to model what the normal Christian life should look like. If Jesus is our example then we should ask; what did Jesus do? The gospels reveal that Jesus went about healing the sick, casting out devils, raising the dead, performing miracles and manifesting the fathers unconditional love. Jesus said, that if you believe on Him that you would do the works that He did and even greater!

In Mark 11 Jesus cursed the fig tree because it was not bearing fruit. The tree is a type (prophetic picture) of the law. It was a system that did not produce fruit. When Jesus cursed the fig tree nothing seemed to happen in the natural realm at first, but He activated a law in the spirit realm. The next day the tree was dried up from the roots. When you speak God's word, sometimes nothing may seem to happen at first, but rest assured things are happening beyond what the natural eye can see. The Holy Spirit is the one that performed the words of Jesus and He is the one that performs His words when we speak in faith.

The Fathers Provision

The disciples noticed that when Jesus would spend time in prayer He would come out in great power, and miracle would explode everywhere He went. This supernatural, creative power flowed out of this time He spent with the heavenly Father. One day, one of the disciples asked Jesus "Lord, will you teach us to pray?"

Luke 11:1-13 (Amplified Bible) 1THEN HE was praying in a certain place; and when He stopped, one of His disciples said to Him, Lord, teach us to pray, [just] as John taught his disciples. 2And He said to them, When you pray, say: Our Father Who is in heaven, hallowed be Your name, Your kingdom come. Your will be done [held holy and revered] on earth as it is in heaven. 3Give us daily our bread [food for the morrow]. 4And forgive us our sins, for we ourselves also forgive everyone who is indebted to us [who has offended us or done us wrong]. And bring us not into temptation but rescue us from evil. 5And He said to them, Which of you who has a friend will go to him at midnight and will say to him, Friend, lend me three loaves [of bread], 6For a friend of mine who is on a journey has just come, and I have nothing to put before him; 7And he from within will answer, Do not disturb me; the door is now closed, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot get up and supply you [with anything]? 8I tell you, although he will not get up and supply him anything because he is his friend, yet because of his shameless persistence and insistence he will get up and give him as much as he needs. 9So I say to you, Ask and keep on asking and it shall be given you; seek and keep on seeking and you shall find; knock and keep on knocking and the door shall be opened to you. 10For everyone who asks and keeps on asking receives; and he who seeks and keeps on seeking finds; and to him who knocks and keeps on knocking, the door shall be opened. 11What father among you, if his son asks for a loaf of bread, will give him a stone; or if he asks for a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent? 12Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? 13If you then, evil as you are, know how to give good gifts [gifts that are to their advantage] to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask and continue to ask Him!

If you believe when you pray, you shall have what you pray for. This bread that Jesus spoke of comes from the heavenly Father. If we are going to receive from our heavenly Father, then we must first have confidence, not only in His ability, but also in His willingness to bless us with this heavenly bread. Religion (the Old Testament mindset) is always begging and pleading with God. We must realize that God is not stingy, He gives abundantly to all of those who ask in faith. He never withholds. In fact, He is more willing to bless us than we are to receive.

Nothing destroys faith like religion and tradition. This is the reason Jesus shared the parable of the son asking his father for bread. "If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?" Jesus shared this parable to build their confidence in the goodness of the heavenly Father and His willingness to answer prayer. Having confidence in your heavenly Father is the foundation to receiving answers to prayer.

Not only does He give enough bread for what you need, He gives you an abundant supply! We must have a New Creation mindset, a mindset that believes all things are possible to those who believe. The creator of the universe is your heavenly Father. Is their anything to difficult for Him? Is there another time that God gave daily bread in history? Let's look at Exodus 16.

Exodus 16:11-19 (Amplified Bible) 11The Lord said to Moses, 12I have heard the murmurings of the Israelites; speak to them, saying, At twilight you shall eat meat, and between the two evenings you shall be filled with bread; and you shall know that I am the Lord your God. 13In the evening quails came up and covered the camp; and in the morning the dew lay round about the camp. 14And when the dew had gone, behold, upon the face of the wilderness there lay a fine, round and flakelike thing, as fine as hoarfrost on the ground. 15When the Israelites saw it, they said one to another, Manna [What is it?]. For they did not know what it was. And Moses said to them, This is the bread which the Lord has given you to eat. 16This is what the Lord has commanded: Let every man gather of it as much as he will need, an omer for each person, according to the number of your persons; take it, every man for those in his tent. 17The [people] did so, and gathered, some more, some less. 18When they measured it with an omer, he who gathered much had nothing over, and he who gathered little had no lack; each gathered according to his need. 19Moses said, Let none of it be left until morning. God supplied fresh bread every day.

The Israelites could have as much bread as they wanted. There was only one condition. They couldn't save the bread until the next day because it would melt and worms would eat it. They couldn't wait until noon; they had to get the bread before the heat of the day. Psalm 63:1 says, "early will I seek thee." This bread was from the Father and it was always fresh. Everything God does is fresh and full of life! Everything religion produces is stale and produces death. This manna was a manifestation of the God's provision. In Luke chapter 11 we see that we must spend time with the Father if we are going to enjoy eating the fresh, life giving bread of His presence.

Miracle Manna

In John 6 Jesus miraculously fed 5000 with only 5 loaves of bread. Jesus was revealing a dynamic of the heavenly Father. He was giving His disciples a foretaste of what was to come. As the disciples broke the bread it literally multiplied in their hands. They fed 5000 people and ended up 12 baskets left over.

Just after the feeding of the 5000. Jesus made a powerful statement, he said, "I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst." Jesus is the bread of life. His divine Life is on the inside of you. Everywhere that you go you are to be breaking the bread of life and giving it those who are hungry. The more you give it away the more it will multiply back to you so that you will have more to give away. This is the law of life, or you could say the law of multiplication. Jesus activated this supernatural law when he prayed and blessed the bread. The blessing was made manifest when the disciples broke the bread and gave it away. The life of God is creative and it never stops reproducing itself. There is no such thing as lack with the heavenly Father. He is the God of increase and multiplication; He truly is the God of more than enough.

Get Your Own Bread

John 16:23-24 (Amplified Bible) 23And when that time comes, you will ask nothing of Me [you will need to ask Me no questions]. I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that My Father will grant you whatever you ask in My Name [as presenting all that I AM].24Up to this time you have not asked a [single] thing in My Name [as presenting all that I AM]; but now ask and keep on asking and you will receive, so that your joy (gladness, delight) may be full and complete.

Up until this point Jesus was the one supplying the bread, but now He is saying the time is now here for you to go to the Father for yourself and get bread. Not just enough for yourself, but to get enough to give away to others as well. This heavenly bread is the bread of healing, the bread of joy, the bread of freedom, the bread of deliverance, the bread of the Holy Ghost.

If we are going to do the works Jesus did then we must follow His example. Jesus spent time fellowshipping with His heavenly Father and the Father abundantly supplied every need. I want to encourage you today to go to your heavenly Father with a confident expectation that He is more willing to answer your prayers and bless you than you are to ask!
