Man Shall Not Live By Bread Alone
By David J. Stewart | May 2012 | Updated October 2015
Hebrews 11:6, “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
The Bible teaches that God deliberately allowed the Jews in the Wilderness to go hungry. They were so hungry that they had to make a choice between either crying out to God in prayer to feed them, or they were going to complain and threaten Moses with going back to slavery in Egypt. The Bible says that God was testing them, to see what they would do, whether they would keep His Commandments, or not...
Deuteronomy 8:2-3, “And thou shalt remember all the way which the LORD thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no. And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.”
SOURCE: Deuteronomy 8:2-3 — King James Bible
God is still the same God today as He was 4,000 years ago in Moses time. The same God Who tested Israel in the Wilderness still tests His children today. God never changes (Malachi 3:6). For 40 long years God tested the Israelites, and every time they moaned and complained, even threatening to go back into slavery in Egypt. In Numbers chapter 11 we read concerning the ungrateful and faithless Jews in the Wilderness..
Numbers 11:4-8 and 18-20, “And the mixt multitude that was among them fell a lusting: and the children of Israel also wept again, and said, Who shall give us flesh to eat? We remember the fish, which we did eat in Egypt freely; the cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and the garlick: But now our soul is dried away: there is nothing at all, beside this manna, before our eyes. And the manna was as coriander seed, and the colour thereof as the colour of bdellium. And the people went about, and gathered it, and ground it in mills, or beat it in a mortar, and baked it in pans, and made cakes of it: and the taste of it was as the taste of fresh oil.
... And say thou unto the people, Sanctify yourselves against to morrow, and ye shall eat flesh: for ye have wept in the ears of the LORD, saying, Who shall give us flesh to eat? for it was well with us in Egypt: therefore the LORD will give you flesh, and ye shall eat. Ye shall not eat one day, nor two days, nor five days, neither ten days, nor twenty days; But even a whole month, until it come out at your nostrils, and it be loathsome unto you: because that ye have despised the LORD which is among you, and have wept before him, saying, Why came we forth out of Egypt?”
God would have gladly given the Israelites their heart's desire if they would have only praised Him with a glad and thankful heart. Instead, they complained about everything. They complained when Moses led them to the Red Sea, saying Moses led them to the sea to die. After beholding the power of God that parted the Red Sea and they walked across on dry ground, the Jews complained that they had no water. Then they complained that they had no food. If they had faith they would have glorified God and said, “We know that God will provide!” God gave them water and food, but they still complained because it wasn't the food they wanted.
The Jews (God's people) complained that they didn't have meat. God had given them manna, which the Bible says was like coriander seed. That's very interesting. I have a bottle of coriander seed in front of me and it has a unique flavor, often sprinkled on chicken, fish or beef as a flavoring. The Israelites complained, saying they had garlic, cucumbers, melons, onions and leeks back in Egypt; but now they had rocks, sand and scorpions.
Sometimes Christians get frustrated doing right while things aren't going right, and sometimes it seems like it was more fun back in the sinful world (Egypt). But do you know what? There is no joy like knowing that you're in God's will, living by faith, and that God is pleased with you. It's better to suffer in the will of God than to enjoy all the pleasures and riches of a life of sin.
The Jews complained when they were slaves for 400 years (they were free for the first 30 years in Egypt during Joseph's time. The Hebrews spent 430 years total in Egypt. God brought them forth out of bondage, but they began to complain that they didn't have the sweet life. So they wanted to go back into Egypt (a picture of the unsaved world). The Jews complained repeatedly and God got fed up with them.
The Passover pictures salvation, when the blood of the slain lamb was applied to the door posts of each Israelite's home. The first-born lived ONLY if the blood was applied. Crossing the Red Sea doesn't picture salvation as some people think. Egypt pictures the unsaved world. The Red Sea pictures coming out of the world and entering into God's will (the Wilderness). The Egyptians could only pursue the Israelites to the Red Sea, and then God stopped them. The world has no place in God's will, nor does being in God's will have a place in the world. God led His people into the Wilderness to test them with hardships, trials and afflictions. Many of the Jews complained and wanted to go back to Egypt (the world). God was greatly displeased. There are so many lessons that we can learn from all this.
Remember, the applied blood of the slain lamb upon the doorposts of each home is what saved the firstborn, and not crossing through the Red Sea. Salvation is obtained only through the precious blood of Jesus sprinkled upon the heavenly Mercy Seat, in the Father's presence on our behalf (Hebrews 9:12,24; 12:24; Romans 5:9; 1st John 1:7).
The Jews complained when Moses was gone for over a month to receive the Ten Commandments from God. They complained that they wanted a god to worship, so they made a golden calf from the spoils they took out of Egypt. God and Moses were enraged. You see, when you walk with God, as Moses did, then you begin to think like God. I'm far from perfect, but when I abide in the Scriptures and pray, and walk with God, I get angry when I see sin. I get mad over false religion, corruption and crime in government and all the evil agendas being pushed on kids today in society (like the sicko homosexual agenda). Does sin make you angry? It should!
Lot was a sinful man, yet righteous (saved) because of his faith in the Lord, and his soul was vexed by the deeds of the wicked that he heard and saw in Sodom (2nd Peter 2:7-8). God wants us to place His Words (the bread from Heaven) above the bread of this life's pleasures and provisions. God wants us to pray, trust and praise Him in the Wilderness of life despite our many trials, heartaches, burdens, tribulations and afflictions. It is a matter of faith in God. Do you have faith? Do you realize that God is bigger than your problems?
When the Jews finally came to the Promised Land in Canaan, then sent out 12 spies. Joshua and Caleb came back and said, “God will give us the victory,” but the other 10 spies sinfully said, “Well never make it. We're doomed!” God had promised them the victory, but they doubted. God had promised to provide for them, but they doubted. God had promised to always be with them, but they didn't believe and complained instead. The Jews whined, moaned and complained about everything!!! God became so angry in Number 20:6 that he killed 16,000 Jews with fiery deadly serpents...
Numbers 21:4-6, “And they journeyed from mount Hor by the way of the Red sea, to compass the land of Edom: and the soul of the people was much discouraged because of the way. And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light bread. And the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died.”
The Jews were a problematic people, always challenging God and provoking Him to angry. America today can certainly be likened to the rebellious Jews. We have been blessed by God and given so much, yet we have used God's blessings as an opportunity to commit wickedness. The Jews were ingrates, always doubting, always complaining, always becoming discouraged, always speaking against Moses and even God. The Lord hates doubting. Hebrews 11:6 teaches that it is IMPOSSIBLE to please God without faith. This Scripture is so important to memorize, learn and obey. HAVE FAITH IN GOD!
Notice Verse 5...
Hebrews 11:5-6, “By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God. But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
Enoch pleased God because he had faith. Faith is the only thing that pleases God. Faith is not complaining when things go wrong, but praying and praising God instead. Faith is not complaining when we are financially broke and there's no food on the table, but praying and praising God instead. James 5:13 says if you're afflicted to pray. As we suffer the affliction of health problems, we ought to pray and praise the Lord instead of complaining. God hates complaining!!!
Deuteronomy 8:3 is so important to learn. God deliberately allowed the Jews to go hungry, forcing them into a bad situation to test them. Things went from bad to worse. The Wilderness was an unforgiving place, which God purposely sent the Jews into to test them...
Deuteronomy 8:15, “Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there was no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint.”
Deuteronomy 32:24, “They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust.”
Deuteronomy 8:15 says that GOD LED the Israelites through the desert Wilderness—great and terrible it was. Deadly fiery serpents, stinging scorpions, drought (no water), lack of food, biting creatures, the intolerable heat of the sun, bitter misery and death surrounded them on every turn. God led them into this horrible place of harsh and inhumane conditions to force them to trust God.
My friend, God hasn't changed in 4,000 years. Do you think God loved the Israelites more than you and I? No, God loves all mankind. If God tested the Jews to see if they would keep His Commandments, then be assured that He will also test you and I. Will we obey God's Commandments or live according to the selfish flesh? Most people today are self-worshippers.
I hate SELF magazine. It is the enemy of the Word of God. The flesh is our biggest enemy, then the world, and then the Devil. These are every Christian's three enemies. Carrie Underwood (pictured to the left) has been featured numerous times in SELF magazine, selling her soul for the love of money (mammon). Search the internet for magazine covers featuring Carrie Underwood and you'll find literally HUNDREDS, over 90% of them mentioning sex, sexy, and sexual topics to seduce people to buy their sinful magazines.
My friend, “self” has absolutely no place in the Christian life. If you do not fear God, then you will fear man, or fear losing fans, or fear losing your luxurious lifestyle. We ought to fear God alone, Who has the power to destroy body and soul in Hell forever. Men can condemn you to the grave, but only God can condemn you to Hell forever. Thankfully, Romans 8:34 says that no one can condemn a believer in Christ Jesus. Amen!
SELF magazine is of the Devil. Selfishness is the sin of pride, the root cause of all sin. It is no coincidence that Carrie Underwood is featured in SELF magazine often, and then she dances nearly naked, sensually in sexy, smutty, videos that are indecent and Godless. It's not a form of art, it's awful wickedness! It's not a form of expression, it's evil. God punished the faithless Jews in the Wilderness for their wickedness, and it all started with selfishness.
Here's a very sobering Scripture from Deuteronomy 32:15-22 that says the Jews were spoiled, as a fatted calf, kicking in rebellion, thick skinned, hard-hearted, covered with fatness...
Deuteronomy 32:15-18 and 21-22, “But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation. They provoked him to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations provoked they him to anger. They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not. Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee.
... They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation. For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains.”
The Jews forsook God in their prosperity and abundance, just as America today, taking lightly the salvation which God provided for them in Christ. Most of the Jews died in their sins in the Wilderness, not having faith in the Gospel...
Hebrews 4:2, “For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.”
Do you have faith in the Gospel? Christ died, was buried and rose again PLUS NOTHING equals salvation! Jesus paid a debt that He did not owe because we owed a debt that we could not pay. Christ died for our sins! The Lord shed His blood, which is the price He paid for our many and horrible sins. All sin is horrible. There are no white sins or little sins. All sin is as black as darkness.
I am saddened when I hear Christians condemn other believers who have sinned. The reason why is because people categorize sin. I heard a pastor publickly berate his brother-in-law for committing adultery. If that pastor had ever commit adultery and it was known publickly, he would never attack his brother-in-law from the pulpit. The truth is that the pastor is a dirty, rotten, wicked sinner just like his brother-in-law, but he doesn't see it because his life is what is often called “above reproach.” However, just because one Christian lives above reproach doesn't mean that he or she isn't just as guilty a sinner in God's eyes.
In fact, James 2:10 states, “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.” If you ever truly realize the depth of your own wickedness, you'll NEVER criticize or compare yourself with another person again. To do so is a sin (James 4:12; 5:9). James 4:12, “There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?” Yet most people do condemn others, sinfully so. Jesus warned that by what measure ye judge another, ye shall be judged by the same measure (Matthew 7:1-5).
After all that God did for the Jews, despite their lack of faith and gratitude, they selfishly took credit for everything and boasted that it was by their own might that they became a mighty nation...
Deuteronomy 8:14-20, “Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the LORD thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage; Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there was no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint; Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove thee, to do thee good at thy latter end; And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth. But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day. And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the LORD thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish.”
Is this not America today who has abandoned God and taken credit for our own prosperity as a nation? By banning God's Word and prayer from our schools in 1963, we told God that He means nothing to us. America was never a Christian nation per se, but this nation was founded upon Christian principles. In the old days, nearly everyone had some kind of faith in a divine God, but moreover, there were indeed MANY born-again Christians in our nation. Today, born-again believers are rare. Religion has replaced Biblical Christianity. I wouldn't give you a dime for most so-called “churches” these days. Christianity has become a racket in America, a business easily exploited by evil men and women who are skilled at manipulating people.
The Bible is filled with instructions from God. Do you know what the Bible is? The Bible is God sharing the thoughts of His heart from generation to generation. Psalms 33:11, “The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.” The Bible in a word is TRUTH (John 17:17). Jesus' Words are truth (John 6:63). God can only be worshipped in spirit and in truth (John 4:24). God is a good God and precious! There is no god like unto our God! All other gods are false gods. We ought to praise God continually.
God deliberately led the Jews into a horrible desert of deadly snakes, stinging scorpions, drought, hunger, brutal heat from the sun, and death. Deuteronomy 8:3 says that God made the Jews go hungry to tempt them, to teach them that man shall not live by bread alone, but by the Words of God. In fact, every Word of God. God's Word was important enough to lead His people into a horrific Wilderness of draught, hunger, intense heat and snakes to teach them that they needed God's Word more than anything else. The Bible is that important to God, yet the Supreme Court banned the Word of God from our children's lives. Woe unto the United States of Satan!
My friend, if you truly grasp what Deuteronomy 8:3 is teaching, then you will start abiding in the Scriptures as God desires. How many people today spend time abiding in the Scriptures, wallowing in the Word and searching for truths to apply to one's life? It's almost unheard of. Instead, people sit around watching television, the enemy of all righteousness!
The fastest way to get rid of unwanted company is to share the Bible with them. It's like the young man who asked an older preacher how to give up the world? The wise older preacher replied, “Son, you carry a Bible and the world will give you up!” Jesus said in John 15:19 that the world HATES Christians and Christ. The world lives on bread alone, stumbling in darkness. John 12:35, “Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.”
Most people are walking in spiritual darkness. Most of them have heard the Gospel and have rejected it as nothing of interest in their life. To them it's just mere religion—men trying to manipulate other men. The love of sin prevents people from coming to the truth of the Gospel (John 3:20). Satan blinds men with worldly philosophies, evolution and false religion (2nd Corinthians 4:4). People just don't want to believe it. With all the evil in the world, how can anyone not believe in Satan? And if Satan exists, then so must God!
This earthly life will soon come to an end. Are you ready to meet God? There's no second chances once you die. Death happens all around us, hundreds-of-thousands-of-times each day, without warning. Before too long, it will be our appointed time to go (Hebrews 9:27). You cannot cheat death my friend. If it wasn't your time, it wasn't your time. But everyone's time will come. I'm ready to meet my Maker. I know 100% that I am saved. God PROMISED in Titus 1:2 to save those who believe on Jesus Christ (Acts 10:43). Salvation is based upon the PROMISES of God, and not upon human effort nor achievement. I've been born-again by God's Spirit, Who lives within me (Romans 8:9). Christ died on the cross for our sins, was buried and bodily arose three days later. This is the Gospel (1st Corinthians 15:1-4). Faith in the Gospel plus nothing equals salvation. Christ died and raised up for my sins, plus nothing is salvation.
I've had people write to me and say that they've come to God because of all the 666, New World Order and occult activities they see in the world. That was enough to convince them that the Bible is true. It makes sense if you think about it—because if you look at religion, there are thousands to choose from. Satan has fabricated all those false religions to mislead sincere people, so he can take them all to Hell. If you look for the truth, Satan will throw a bunch of deceptions at you to confuse you. So look at the Satanists and occultists and see which religion they're all attacking. They all attack Biblical Christianity! They all attack the deity of Jesus. They all attack the precious King James Bible.
The Word of God is the great need in the world today. Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Just as God tested the Jews by leading them into horrendous hardships, so will God lead us into afflictions and hardships that will teach us to trust Him and keep His Commandments. God only had one Son without sin, but He never had a son without temptations, hardships and afflictions. Every believer is an adopted son of God. John 1:12, “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.”
A Faith Must Be Tested
Most Christians are familiar with the Scripture passage in Mathew 4:4 that teaches “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God”; but very few believers understand that God makes our lives difficult, afflicted and burdened to test whether or not we will obey the Bible.
It is so important that we learn this spiritual truth as Christians, because no one is exempt from being led into the Wilderness of deadly snakes, trying hunger, unquenchable thirst, stinging scorpions, intense heat and the misery of affliction. God deliberately led the Israelites into hardships, afflictions and sorrows to test their faith. Most of them failed the test miserably. Ten times they moaned and complained and doubted God, provoking Him to wrath. A faith must be tested my friend. Our text Verse in Hebrews 11:6 says that without faith it is IMPOSSIBLE to please God. The Lord's parable of the unjust judge in Luke 18:1-8 plainly teaches us that God will intentionally ignore us when we pray, to see if we'll quit or keep on praying in faith! 2nd Corinthians 5:7 says that we live by FAITH, and not by SIGHT. Thus, we ought to pray and not decide whether or not we'll continue praying based upon the results. That's what the heathen world does. They pray, and when God doesn't answer, they quit and badmouth God for the rest of their days. Genuine prayer is solely a matter of trusting faith.
Job was not a hero, but an example for all humanity to learn from. God allowed Satan to sift Job as wheat, robbing him of his health, children, servants, crops, wealth, livestock and friends. Job's wife lost all that too, except her health. Don't be too hard on Job's wife, who told Job to curse God and die. Mrs. Job lost ten of her children too, when a tornado brought the home down. That dear, poor, woman! God tested Job's faith and Job passed the test. Job's wife didn't.
Why, oh God, did you allow this to happen? God sees all, and knows all, and approves of everything that happens. God cannot commit evil, neither tempteth He any man (James 1:13). Yet, God in His permissive will allows horrible things to happen even to the best of Christians. It's all part of living in a fallen world. God has allowed mankind to do as he pleases and to suffer the consequences.
Satan Is The God Of This Wicked World
Solomon (the preacher) said in Ecclesiastes 9:11 that time and chance happeneth TO ALL. This is because we live in a fallen world of sin (Romans 5:12), and because mankind has chosen to choose between good and evil for himself, instead of obeying God. Adam and Eve chose to have the knowledge of good and evil, and so it was. God gave them the freedom to choose for themselves between good and evil, and to pay the consequences. The serpent left out that part when he seduced Eve. Satan didn't tell them that they'd suffer the horrifying consequences if they made a wrong choice. The serpent didn't tell Eve that her and Adam would be ejected from the paradise of Eden permanently. Adam and Eve lost everything!
God gave Adam and Eve what they wanted, and mankind has regretted it ever since. Other people often pay for the sins of one individual. In a world where everyone sins, and many people are often adversely affected by one sinner, it is not surprising that rapes, murders and robberies are commonplace these days. Every sin begets ten more, and those ten a hundred more, and so forth.
When you look at the big picture of cheating insurance companies, shady car dealers, crooked lawyers, corrupt judges, lying politicians, thug drug cartels, apostate ministers, perverted Hollywood, ruthless Las Vegas casinos, criminal Wall Street executives, traitorous military officials, the evil CIA, the shameful White House, the murderous Supreme Court on abortion, the banning of the Bible and prayer from our schools, the teaching of bogus evolution, the puppet FBI, the greedy beer cartel, and all the other dishonest and wicked businesses and rackets in society today... it's not surprising that everything is the way it is!!!
It's hard to deal with reality when you're a singing, soul-winning and sacrificing Christian lady for God, and then a monstrous gang of Muslim thugs gang-rape you while going to use the toilet, leaving you for dead...
Muslims Gang-Rape Pastor’s Wife and Rob Home
VENNABARI, Bangladesh – The pastor of a Baptist church in this village about a 100 kilometers 62 miles south of Dhaka said that earlier this month local Muslims tied him and his wife up, robbed his living quarters on the church property and gang-raped his wife.
The Rev. Shankar Hazra, 55, of Chaksing Baptist Church in Gopalganj district, said that before leaving, the assailants desecrated the church building.
The night of the attack, the pastor said, he and his wife, 45, went out to a toilet outside their home at about 2 a.m. on Jan. 6.
“Suddenly a man loomed up from the darkness and thrust the snout of a homemade rifle at my chest and told me to keep mum, otherwise both of us would be killed,” Rev. Hazra told Compass. “Around seven to eight people swooped on us and tied me and my wife. They blindfolded my wife and took her inside the house.”
While Rev. Hazra was tied to a pillar on the porch of his house of corrugated tin and wood, the assailants took the keys of chests and trunks and looted valuables: gold and silver jewelry worth US$500, cash totaling US$300, a mobile phone, television, CD players, all their clothes except his cassock, and utensils.
“They even looted my daughters’ dresses,” Rev. Hazra told Compass. “After looting everything, they gang-raped my wife.”

This world is filled with evildoers. That poor Baptist missionary's wife was gang-raped by somebody's sons. Those men have a mother and a father. What did their parents teach them during their youth? Many parents teach their children to hate, for one reason or another, and they grow up to be hateful people. Judaizers and Muslims both teach their children by religious faith to hate Christians. The Jewish Talmud repeatedly blasphemes the Lord Jesus Christ, denying His virgin birth by claiming Mary was raped by a Roman soldier instead. The Muslim Quran denies that Jesus is the Son of God. The Quran also teaches that Jews and Christians are villains.
Here's another sad story where thugs wrapped cords around Baptist missionary's necks and martyred them. Baptist Missionaries Martyred In Mexico After Receiving Death Threats From Catholics. Those thugs have parents. The abortionists in America have parents who failed to teach them the Word of God. The Godless U.S. Supreme Court banned the Bible and prayer from our schools in 1963. Ten years later abortion was legalized nationwide by the U.S. Supreme Court. Very soon same-sex marriage will be the law of the land, as New York's Supreme Court already ruled in July of 2011. Parents are to blame for not teaching their children the Bible.
Once a culture bans the Bible, all hope is gone of having any kind of a decent society. Christian women will be gang-raped at an alarming rate as this country falls apart. Already, ABC television is referring to Christian women as GCB (Good Christian Bitches). The filthy show debuted on March 4, 2012 as a new sitcom on ABC TV. With this kind of hateful propaganda against Christians being tolerated by heathen society, how long can it be before Christians are once again fed to the lions as in the Roman Empire?
Do you have faith? We'll see, we'll see... when your life falls apart, and your child dies, and you lose your eyesight, and your spouse files for divorce, and you're diagnosed with terminal cancer, and your bills cannot be paid, and your home is foreclosed, and your car blows the engine, and you're raped, and your health is gone, and you're fired at work, and your home is burglarized while you're at church, and your legs are amputated in a car crash, and it seems that God never answers your prayers... MAN SHALL NOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE, BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDETH OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD!!!
Ecclesiastes 12:14, “For God shall bring every work into judgment,
with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.”
The following powerful short speech was made by singer and actor Lou Rawls as he escorts a couple past a cemetery in a horse-drawn buggy in the PG-13 movie, The Conspiracy Code (2001) starring Jim Fitzpatrick and Maria Alonso. The film is about THE TRUTH and how it relates to the forces of evil and good...
“Folks don't usually ask me what I think. You might think I'm old fashioned. You might even think I'm crazy. But I don't care, 'cause it don't change what I think. It don't change what I know. Matter of fact, it don't change nothing. Some folks don't think evil's real. But war, men killing men. My brother's buried here. Died fighting Hitler. But evil is real. Every man's gotta choose, see. What you've gotta do to do, is you've got to make a decision. You're going to follow good or evil. They both want you. Oh yeah. It ain't easy figuring it out either. No Sir. The truth's hard to find these days. Evil doesn't want you to find the truth. But you'll know truth when you see it. Yes sir. You've got to decide this for yourself. That's what it's all about.”
SOURCE: Quote, Lou Rawls, The Code Conspiracy (2001)
Filmed in St. Augustine, Florida and the Bahamas, this is one of the few movies these days that doesn't take God's name in vain and there's no nudity scenes. The movie accurately exposes the fascist takeover of the White House in the U.S. today. The executive branch of our government has been hi-jacked by criminals. Don't take my word for it, listen to your elected leaders in congress. The movie accurately portrays the arrogant, ruthless, murderous, cold-hearted monsters that possess the New World Order (NWO) and their minions.
Lest you still have some doubts, here's a disturbing public speech given by U.S. President John F. Kennedy, pleading with the American people to warn others about the “monolithic and ruthless conspiracy” to “infiltrate,” “subvert” and “intimidate” their way into power. President Kennedy was assassinated just days after this dire warning to the American public. Kennedy was warning us about the Illuminati (which Commander William Guy Carr summarizes as, “The World Revolutionary Movement” - a 1958 lecture given in Chicago by Cmdr. Carr). It is now established history that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) murdered President JFK, as documented in the film, Dark Legacy: CIA Kingpin George H. Bush And The Murder Of President John F. Kennedy. The CIA are the secret police of the Illuminati. The CIA was started during Harry Truman's presidency by Wall Street bankers and attorneys.
The Holy Bible foretold of these difficult times in which we live today. 2nd Timothy 3:1, “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.” “Perilous” here means “hard to endure, difficult, that is, dangerous.” Unshakable faith comes from having your faith shaken! Hard times require hard preaching! We are engaged in a spiritual war today. God is recruiting soldiers! Our weapon is the Sword of the Word of God!!! Mathew 4:4, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” Thank God for the Thompson machine Gun of the King James Bible!!!
God Uses Our Weaknesses For His Glory
Remember that when life is rough, God uses our weaknesses, tribulations and hardships to shape us more into Christ's image, and to work through us for His glory. Our strengths are actually our weaknesses. God has never had a child too weak to use, but He has had many who were too strong to use. 2nd Corinthians 12:9, “And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” God's power can only rest upon me if I continually put God first, relying upon Him in prayer for His Holy Spirit to work through my ministry to help OTHERS. Always give God the glory and He will use you!
To the same degree that I am weak, to that same degree I am going to pray and plead for God's Holy Spirit to work. Our strengths hinder us from relying upon God in prayer, fasting and Bible reading. I want God's power to rest upon me, so that I may help YOU, which means that I ought to rejoice in my health afflictions, heartaches, burdens, weaknesses, hardships, losses, frustrations and human frailties. Whatever drives me to my knees in prayer is a blessing! The Hebrews were tested by God when He led them into the Wilderness, and you can rest assure that He will lead you and I into our own desert Wilderness, to test our faith, to see if we'll keep serving Him or start complaining and quit. No matter what happens, hang in there! The beautiful thing is that God doesn't expect us to go it alone; but rather, Christ's indwelling Spirit in every believer lives the Christian life through us. Galatians 2:20, “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” God will walk with us every step of the way!
Mathew 4:4, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”
"In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ."
—2nd Thessalonians 1:8
