MORNINGTIME 4237by Benjamin Munsell on March 28, 2023
There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many? And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand. And Jesus took the loaves; and when He had given thanks, He distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would. When they were filled, He said unto His Disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost. Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten. John 6:9-13. This short version of Jesus feeding the 5000 men PLUS women and children, is a great example of the Biblical Concept of Exponential Increase. Here's how. ONE Man took 5 loaves and 2 small fishes and brake them, (broke then into smaller pieces), and gave those pieces to 12 men who also brake them and gave to 5000 men who also brake them and gave to all the women and children. This is, 1 gets you 12, gets you 5000, gets you (it's estimated) 20,000 people fed off just 5 loaves and 2 small fishes. Again, this is an example of Biblical Exponential Increase. There are numerous other examples throughout the Bible of this "Increase", ALL FOR THE PURPOSE TO SHOW THE LORD IS MORE THAN ABLE TO TAKE CARE OF ALL PEOPLE, SAVED OR LOST. Remember Moses in the dessert with 4 (?) million people needing to be fed everyday for 40 years? The Prophet at the widows house where the cruse of oil and the box of flour never ran out, until the rains started? And the lists just keep on coming. The Lord has Proven Himself Faithful throughout all the Bible. Can we prove ourselves Faithful to Believe He will still continue to Provide for us the answers to ALL our needs, in the coming days? The Lord is looking for people who will Believe ALL His Promises, to Preach Christ, and to, Be Blessed.
