“Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising. Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to thee: thy sons shall come from far, and thy daughters shall be nursed at thy side. Then thou shalt see, and flow together, and thine heart shall fear, and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be converted unto thee, the forces of the Gentiles shall come unto thee.” – Isaiah 60:1-5

LIGHT FOR NOW:  A right interpretation of scriptural texts equals revelation knowledge.

In John 6:34-35, we saw that Jesus points himself as that bread. He says anyone that comes to him shall never hunger. This does not refer to physical hunger. Anyone who eats of him has simply partaken of something everlasting. He goes on to say the same thing in verses 47 to 51 which reads “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. I am that bread of life. Your fathers did eat manner in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eats of this bread, he shall live forever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world”.

Therefore, when Jesus used the word “bread” to refer to himself, he did not use it literally. It was used as a figure of speech. In verse 53-56, Jesus explains further “Then Jesus said unto them, verily, verily, I say unto you, except ye eat the flesh of the son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is meat indeed. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me”. Again, eating and drinking were not used literally. Finally, in verses 57-58, Jesus says “As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me. This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manner, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live forever… Vs 63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life”.

Therefore, bread was used figuratively to explain eternal life. He was not referring to the physical bread, but the spirit. This bread therefore is about the kingdom, forgiveness of sins and eternal life. It was figurative and literal. Hence, in Matthew 6, when Jesus refers to daily bread which is the bread that last always, he must have been referring to himself. There is no physical bread that last always; rather in the book of John, Jesus was clear that anyone who eats physical bread will still die just like the Israelites ate manner in the wilderness and still died. Jesus points to himself as that everlasting bread that last always. Hallelujah!
