SHARING GOD’S WORD TODAY BROADCAST MINISTRY
JOHN CHAPTER 6: 1-71

Bless you, Bless you and BLESS YOU!! It is indeed a pleasure to come before you with the words of the Lord!! Scripture tells us in Psalms 34:19 “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the LORD delivereth him out of them all.” Praise the Lord for deliverance! Look at how many times Paul was delivered. There has been no greater time in our history that we need to understand what the Bible via the Holy Spirit is revealing to the Saints today. For background read what Ezra has to say and then read what Zechariah has to say about Shepherds (Pastors).
FROM OUR LAST STUDY, I WANTED TO HIGHLIGHT THESE TWO SCRIPTURES.
THIS IS WHAT MOSES SAID:
Deuteronomy 18:15 King James Version (KJV)
15 The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;
THE LORD GOD VERIFIED WHAT MOSES SAID.
Deuteronomy 18:18 King James Version (KJV)
18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.
JOHN 6: 15
JESUS WALKS ON THE WATER VERSE 15-21
15 When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone.
Jesus states in John 18:36-37
John 18:36-37 King James Version (KJV)
36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.
37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.
16 And when even was now come, his disciples went down unto the sea,
17 And entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them.
YOU WILL NOTE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN JOHN AN MATTHEW’S GOSPEL
Matthew 14:23-33 King James Version (KJV)
23 And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.
24 But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary.
25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.
26 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.
27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.
28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.
29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.
31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?
32 And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.
33 Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.
18 And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew.
19 So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid.
30 FURLONGS IS EQUAL TO 3.41 MILES.
20 But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid.
21 Then they willingly received him into the ship: and immediately the ship was at the land whither they went.
JESUS THE BREAD OF LIFE VERSES 22-29
22 The day following when the people which stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was none other boat there, save that one where into his disciples were entered, and that Jesus went not with his disciples into the boat, but that his disciples were gone away alone;
23 (Howbeit there came other boats from Tiberias nigh unto the place where they did eat bread, after that the Lord had given thanks:)
24 When the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, neither his disciples, they also took shipping, and came to Capernaum, seeking for Jesus.
25 And when they had found him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him, Rabbi, when camest thou hither?
JESUS ALWAYS SEES WHAT IS IN THEIR HEARTS!
26 Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled.
JESUS THEN TELL THEM WHAT THEY SHOULD INDEED LABOUR FOR.
27 Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.
28 Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?
AND WHAT WAS JESUS RESPONSE?
29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.
AND WHAT IS IT THAT WE MUST BELIEVE? IT IS THE DEATH, BURIAL AND RESURECTION OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST!
JESUS, SENT FROM HEAVEN VERSES 30-59
30 They said therefore unto him, What sign shewest thou then, that we may see, and believe thee? what dost thou work?
THERE ARE TWO QUESTIONS THEY ASK OF JESUS IN VERE 30.
Matthew 12:38-42 King James Version (KJV)
38 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.
39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:
40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
41 The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.
42 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.
MAY GOD CONTINUE TO BLESS YOU FOR STUDYING HIS WORD!!
