In the book of Exodus when Moses brought the Israelites though the wilderness, they continually murmured to him complaining that he brought them out there to die of starvation.
The LORD then supernaturally sent manna from heaven to feed them by day, and quail to feed them by night. Moses told them that the manna must be eaten before the morning, and then fresh manna and quail would be supplied each day. For those who saved the manna and the quail until the morning found that it bread worms and stank.
The LORD says;
“I want to supply My people with fresh manna daily. Don’t go back to the manna of yesterday because it will be ineffective and may even be harmful to you. As you read My word I will continually supply you with fresh revelation daily.
I AM the living bread that came down from heaven and My Word is fresh manna. Don’t go back to your old way of believing, because I have taken you to a new level, and I will continue to open your eyes to new things.
I AM releasing you from doctrines that are unproductive, and that do not bear fruit. You are no longer under the law or the traditions of man, but you are living in the New Covenant of My grace.”
Then I read Psalm 103:7. He made known His ways to Moses, His acts to the children of Israel. He spoke to Moses directly because He had a personal relationship with him and considered him to be a friend.
The children of Israel only knew of His acts and experienced His miracles, but they did not know His ways. He went before them in a cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night to protect them. He had parted the Red Sea for them and drowned their enemies (The Egyptian army) that pursued them.
In the New Testament in book of (John 6:30 -59) the people wanted to see miracles just as the Israelites received manna in the Old Testament. Jesus told them that He was the living bread that came down from heaven.
We are now under the New Covenant where we could receive fresh manna from heaven daily as we are partakers of our Covenant with Jesus.
“Don’t be afraid, to leave the old manna, to receive the new. You will also experience the deliverance of the LORD. I will bring you out, to bring you in and I will fight for you.
You only need to be still and let go of that which is stale and stagnant. As I was with Moses, I will be with you. You will have favor in my sight and not only experience My miracles, but you will know My ways,” says the LORD.
“And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and when the morning appeared, the sea returned to its full depth, while the Egyptians were fleeing into it. So the LORD overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea. Then the waters returned and covered the chariots, the horsemen, and all the army of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them. Not so much as one of them remained. But the children of Israel had walked on dry land in the midst of the sea, and the waters were a wall to them on their right hand and on their left,” Exodus 14:27-29.
“The LORD would speak to Moses face to face, as one speaks to a friend,” Exodus 33:11a.
“Our fathers ate the manna in the desert; as it is written, ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.'” Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, Moses did not give you the bread from heaven, but My Father gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” Then they said to Him, “LORD, give us this bread always.” And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst,” John 6:31-36.
“Jesus answered them and said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you saw the signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled. Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him.”
Then they said to Him, “What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?”
Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent.”
Therefore they said to Him, “What sign will You perform then, that we may see it and believe You? What work will You do? Our fathers ate the manna in the desert; as it is written, ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’”
Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, Moses did not give you the bread from heaven, but My Father gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”
Then they said to Him, “LORD, give us this bread always.”
And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst. But I said to you that you have seen Me and yet do not believe. All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out. For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day. And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.””
Rejected by His Own
“The Jews then complained about Him, because He said, “I am the bread which came down from heaven.” And they said, “Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How is it then that He says, ‘I have come down from heaven’?”
Jesus therefore answered and said to them, “Do not murmur among yourselves. No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day. It is written in the prophets, ‘And they shall all be taught by God.’ Therefore everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to Me. Not that anyone has seen the Father, except He who is from God; He has seen the Father. Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me has everlasting life. I am the bread of life. Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.”
The Jews therefore quarreled among themselves, saying, “How can this Man give us His flesh to eat?”
Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed. He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him. As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me. This is the bread which came down from heaven — not as your fathers ate the manna, and are dead. He who eats this bread will live forever.”
These things He said in the synagogue as He taught in Capernaum,” John 6:26-59.
