Living by the Father
John 6:56-57 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.
We all desire to live by Jesus. However we cannot live by him by worshiping him or serving him in a religious way. Christianity has worshiped him for 2000 years but not many live by him. To live by him we must eat and drink him. To eat him is to feast on the living bread and to drink him is to learn to enjoy the Christ within. The cup of wine in communion represents the Blood and wine is for enjoyment. Melchizedek always brings the bread and wine. The Melchizedek priest never comes to condemn but to give you life more abundantly. We may not have the strength to overcome some our bad habit patterns but we can all practice feasting on the living word and enjoy the Christ within. This will in time take care of the carnality within us.
We can all receive Him as the Bread of Life which gives to us His abundant life enabling us to begin to live according to His life and become a habitation of God in the spirit. The only way we will ever become a habitation of God, the only way we will ever put down the habits of the flesh, the only way we will ever, satisfy the heart of God is to learn how to assimilate into our being the Bread of Life. This is what Jesus meant when he said thing like, I am the Way, truth and life.” He was not talking about his flesh man. He said “I of mine own self can do nothing.” It was the Christ within him that was the way and we all have Christ within us.
There’s only one way that we as a believer will ever become filled to overflowing with God, and it won't be by teaching, it won't be by preaching, and it won't be by the Gifts of the Spirit. The scripture says "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceeds out of the mouth of God." Zechariah said, Jesus will come, and He will build the church, but He'll do it as a priest and a king. He first has to fill you. Let me say it this way: You first have to receive Him as the Bread, and begin to enjoy Him in your daily life. You begin to have Him fill you, and you receive Him as your Bread and begin to enjoy Him as your life supply. He will then become your king. Religion will always get it backwards, religion will always say "He must become your king for Him to receive you". But if you will receive Him, and learn to feed on Him in your daily life, and experience Him as your Bread and your Wine, your food and your enjoyment, He will then become your King.
Let us be glad and rejoice for we are surly beginning to awake in his likeness.
