Can We Be Separated From God?
The Apostle Paul says, there's nothing can separate us from the love of God, neither life nor death, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, things to come, height or depth, NOTHING can separate us from the love of God. So do you think your habits, do you think your failures can separate you from God? They can only if we are in unbelief. If we believe that our habit separates us from the presence of God, then how could we enter in? But if we realize that He came as the Bread and the Wine, and He is always available. Today, He's not just waiting for us as the prodigal to leave the pigpen. He will come to the pigpen and bring you the Bread and the Wine. He'll feed you, and He'll nourish you, and oh, you'll come out of the sin, and you'll come out of the bondage because you'll find out there's nothing you can do that will cause God to turn away from you. If you are in sin, you need the Bread and the Wine. We need to experience Him coming to us when we feel so broken and outcast. When we feel like God could never receive me, He wants to come to us and bring to us the Bread and the Wine that we might feast at His table. Thank God for the Melchizedek Priest
There is only one way that we will ever live by the life of God. Jesus said “I am the way, the truth and the life. He was not talking about his humanity as the man Jesus, but as the Christ.
The only way you can live this wonderful life of God in humanity is to eat the bread of life. That is the only way to an abundant life in spirit. Ministering as a Melchizedek priest is also the only way to build the people of God. As Melchizedek you minister from your spirit to the spirit of the saints.
You can draw the crowds by just being a good teacher or by being one who operates in the gifts of the spirit. If you are a gifted pastor or teacher and you begin to have notable miracles in your ministry you will definitely draw the crowds, but unless you operate as a Melchizedek priest you will not build the people of God. It is a wonderful thing to have the miracles among us but if that is all we have the house of God will not be built. There are mega churches all over the world with people who are never taught their true nature and identity. They are never brought to an understanding of being God’s Christ on the earth. The only way that the church will become a habitation of God in the Spirit and be built up a spiritual house, is that we must learn how to assimilate the Bread of Life into our being.
The thing that we need is life in the spirit. We tend to think if we stop this and stop that, and don't do this and don't do that, then God will fill us up. It doesn't work that way. If we take the time to enjoy God He will fill us up, and then we will live by his life. Religion will teach you backwards, religion will have you striving in the flesh, trying to be like God, and that's the carnal mind which is the enemy of God. Again Jesus said "Just as the living Father sent Me, and I live by (through, because of) the Father, even so whoever continues to feed on Me - who takes Me for his food and is nourished by Me - shall (in his turn) live through and because of Me." So Jesus comes to us as the priest, as the bread for our nourishment, and the wine representing our enjoyment. Wine is simply a type of the real satisfaction and enjoyment.
No enjoyment can compare to the joy of the living spirit within us. The church has never come to the place to realize that the spirit can be our enjoyment. If we receive Him as the bread and the wine, we will grow up into Him. There will be such a love develop on the inside of us that then He will become our King. He must first become our Bread and Wine before He will ever become our King. For Him to be really King over us, He must first become our love. He must become our Bread and our Wine. There's no sin in the world, there's no habit and there's no hang-up that you have that will keep Jesus from bringing to you the Bread and the Wine. You can come to Him with every habit and every hang-up and just enjoy him and appreciate Him and He will become your life in reality.
