Today’s message begins with a vision shown yesterday. In it, rows and rows of fish on small rectangular-shaped planks were shown. Each plank displayed one whole fish. It was only after having asked the Lord for more understanding that a proper interpretation was given. It came in a vision in the form of a mailbox with a key inserted into a lock positioned on the right side. In other words, the meaning would be unlocked by He who has and gives the keys of knowledge. In brief, the mailbox was opened and so was my understanding!
Then he opened their minds, that they might understand the Scriptures. (Lk. 24:45)
Christ Feeds and Supplies
Briefly said, this vision typifies Jesus’ miraculous multiplication of bread and fish as written in all four gospels. (Matthew 14:13-21; Mark 6:31-44; Luke 9:12-17; John 6:1-15) The planks on which each fish rested are cedar planks that are commonly used for flavorful grilling. (To be brief, the topic of the Bread which is the Lord from heaven will not be discussed in this post as that has already been posted a few times already. ) But why now fish?! Because fish is a meat that requires stronger mastication for the more profound things of GOD and it is given to the mature in understanding who have been weaned off the milk of the Word. To those who are not carnal nor of the world but who are spiritual. To those who are able to discern between good and evil!
And I Brethen could not speak unto you as unto spiritual but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able. (1 Cor. 3:1-2)
But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. (Heb. 5:14)
It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter. (Prov. 25:2)
As our present-day Provider and Supplier, the risen Christ is showing that He can more than supply the natural needs of a faithful multitude. And He can more than supply their growing spiritual needs with His Word and Holy Spirit as they continue to mature in Him! At last but not in the least, it is Him who gives wisdom, knowledge and understanding! And just as Jesus commanded His Disciples to feed the multitude with His substance during this great multiplication, so ought we in turn freely give of the same to ‘the lost’. (Mat. 10:6-8) Yes, as the Light of the world, Christ’s Spirit lives in the Bread and the meat (fish) of His Word. Behold the Living Word! (1 Jn. 1-4; Gen. 1:1-4)
I am hearing a Word of Confirmation on this message. Praise GOD and thank you Lord Jesus.
