Christian Author Writer I taught this series in a camp meeting in the 1970's, I attempted to transcribe it from the tapes made of that meeting, I fear it has resulted in a much to lengthy thing to be read here and, I probably shall never attempt it again.

I said in the beginning I believe all the actions of Christ are exhaust-less fountains of revelation, and they lift the veil and let us look into the depths of His nature. Everything He did while He dwelt among us had not only a physical thing attached to it but a spiritual thing as well. His actions are not only a history of what He has done, but also a distinct prophecy of what He will do in the lives of those that genuinely are seeking Him.

I have taken this miracle and applied it in a spiritual sense, often times as we walk in the word and in the Spirit, He will open our mind and hearts, He will take the word of God and bring it alive, it shall become as a fire shut up in our bones. These things cannot be understood by those that are carnal minded even though they are super religious. I have known even preachers that are as dead as a doorknob to some truths, and it shows in their preaching and witnessing for God.

A friend told me he was on the golf course one day when the club pro brought another man out for a lesson. The pro watched the fellow swing several times and started making suggestions for improvement, but each time the pro. Attempted to teach the man, the pupil interrupted with his own version of what was wrong and how to correct it. After a few minutes of this interference, the pro began nodding his head in agreement. At the end of the lesson, the student paid the pro, congratulated him on his expertise as a teacher, and left in an obviously pleased frame of mind.

My friend was so astonished that he asked... "Why did you go along with him?".... "Son," the old pro said with a grin, as he carefully pocketed his fee... "I learned long ago that it's a waste of time to sell answers to a man who wants to buy echoes...." If you want echoes you will not be happy reading Poppa... Because I may write something you never thought of before or it may be different than what someone has already convinced you of. There is a danger in becoming unteachable. The young wannabe golfer paid the price but was still in the dark as far as being enlightened of truths that could have helped him in his quest.

I have been teaching in Matthew 14...The miracle of Feeding the 5,000 that followed Jesus.

He "Took"...Only what was willingly given Him, God will never force anyone to give their life or possession to Him. If you want miracles in your life, you will have to learn to surrender whatever He asks you to give. The Lad didn't give just the leftovers of his lunch, and did not withhold one bun or one fish. Many years ago two young men were working their way through Stanford University. At one point their money was almost gone, so they decided to engage the great pianist Paderewski for a concert and use the profits for board and tuition. Paderewski's manager asked for a guarantee of $2,000. The students worked hard to promote the concert, but they came up $400 short. After the performance, they went to the musician, gave him all the money they had raised, and promised to pay the $400 as soon as they could. It appeared that their college days were over. "No, boys, that won't do," said the pianist, "take out of this $1,600 all your expenses, and keep for each of you 10 percent of the balance for your work. Let me have the rest." Years passed. Paderewski became the Premier of Poland following World War I. Thousands of his countrymen were starving. Only one man could help, the head of the U.S. Food and Relief Bureau. Paderewski's appeal to him brought thousands of tons of food. Later he met the American statesman to thank him. "That's all right," replied Herbert Hoover. "Besides, you don't remember, but you helped me once years ago when I was a student in college."
Eccl. 11:1 Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days.

He "Blessed"...He wants to, and will, bless those that truly seek Him.
There was once a blacksmith who worked hard at his trade. The day came for him to die. God sent his angel to the smith, but to the angel's surprise, the smith refused to go. He pleaded with the angel that he was the only blacksmith in the village and it was time for all his neighbors to begin their planting and sowing. He would be needed. The blacksmith did not want to appear to be ungrateful and was looking forward to having a place in God's kingdom, but could he put it of for a while? The angel went and made the blacksmith's case before God. And God agreed. Sometime later, after the harvest, the angel returned to bring the blacksmith to heaven. But again the smith requested that his return to God be delayed. "A neighbor of mine is seriously ill and it's time for the harvest. A number of us are trying to save his crops so that his family won't be destitute. Please tell God I am grateful for his blessings to me. But could you come for me later?" And the angel returned to heaven. Well, it got to be a pattern. Every time the angel would come to bring the faithful blacksmith to heaven, the smith would shake his head and explain to the angel that he was still needed by someone on earth. Finally, the blacksmith grew very old and weary and so he prayed to God to send his angel to bring him to heaven. Immediately the angel appeared. "If you still want to take me home, I'm ready to live forever in God's kingdom." The angel laughed and looked at the blacksmith with delight and surprise. "Where do you think you have been all these years?”...Beloved the true blessing of God is being in His Kingdom now, and walking in the Spirit daily.

He "Broke"...In order to multiply He must break, Our self-will, our foolish sentiment, our natural affections, our wild fancies, our self-esteem, our pet projects, our human creeds, it must all be broken to pieces if ever God makes us to conform to the image of Jesus Christ. Keep in mind the same precious hands that blessed the bread were the same hands that did the breaking!
Before my wife passed into Glory she loved to visit my friend John Running Wolf, He raised cattle, horses and sheep on one of her daily walks, she saw John seated on the ground with his flock around him. Nearby, on a pile of straw lay a single sheep, which seemed to be suffering. Looking closely, she saw that its leg was broken. Her sympathy went out to the suffering sheep, and she looked up inquiringly to John and asked how it happened. "I broke it myself," and sadly explained. "Of all the sheep in my flock, this was the most wayward. It would not obey my voice and would not follow when I was leading the flock. On more than one occasion, it wandered to the edge of a perilous cliff. And not only was it disobedient itself, but it was leading other sheep astray. "Based on my experience with this kind of sheep, I knew I had no choice, so I broke its leg. The next day I took food and it tried to bite me. After letting it lie alone for a couple of days, I went back and it not only eagerly took the food, but also licked my hand and showed every sign of submission and affection. When this sheep is well, it will be the model sheep of my entire flock. No sheep will hear my voice so quickly nor follow so closely. Instead of leading the others away, it will be an example of devotion and obedience. In short, a complete change will come into the life of this wayward sheep. It will have learned obedience through its sufferings."...Many times it is the same in human experience. Through our suffering, God may be seeking to teach us obedience and reliance on his care.

He "Gave".... But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him... But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit: For the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, and the deep things of God... But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory.

And so dear friends, He will receive us, He will bless us, He will break us, all, that we may become His blessed Bride, and then comes the giving, He will open the windows of heaven and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And He shall rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of Hosts. His ultimate goal is to make you and I what the Apostle Paul called "Living Letters" Letters not written with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart... What God chooses, He cleanses.... What God cleanses, He molds.... What God molds, He fills.... What God fills, He uses...
After receiving, blessing, breaking, He gave the Bread and fishes back to His disciples to feed the masses, He uses men and women to feed man. It's called, the 'Method of the Master'.

There is an ancient legend about a monk who found a precious stone, a precious jewel. A short time later, the monk met a traveler, who said he was hungry and asked the monk if he would share some of his provisions. When the monk opened his bag, the traveler saw the precious stone and, on an impulse, asked the monk if he could have it. Amazingly, the monk gave the traveler the stone.

The traveler departed quickly overjoyed with his new possession. A few days later, he came back, searching for the monk. He returned the stone to the monk and said: I have thought about the value of this precious stone and I am grateful that you gave it to me. However, You have something much more valuable that I need. "Please give me that which enabled you to give me this precious stone!" A commitment of the whole heart, that's what heaven...the Kingdom of Heaven requires of its followers. That's sacrifice and hard work. That's what being the Bride of Christ is all about. Amen!

What?...'The Bride Will Be The One Riding A Camel'...Yes Sir!...At times the ride is rough, but at the end of the journey it will well be worth the ride. Amen!

God Bless You
