NOTICE THAT THIS VERSE WAS NOT THE ACTUAL FEEDING OF THE FIVE THOUSAND, BUT SIMPLY MENTIONED AS A PLACE OF REFERENCE, YET A POWERFUL POINT WAS BEING CONVEYED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT; THAT MULTIPLICATION HAPPENS AFTER GIVING THANKS.
(John 6:23) “Then some boats from Tiberias landed near the place where the people had eaten the bread after the Lord had given thanks.”
YOU SEE, WHAT YOU PUT ON JESUS HANDS WILL MULTIPLY!
(John 6:9) “There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two small fish, but what are these among so many?”
(John 6:11) “And Jesus took the loaves, and when He had given thanks, He distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to those who had reclined; and likewise of the fish, as much as they wanted.”
THE FEEDING OF THE FIVE THOUSAND WAS A DISPLAY OF GOD’S GRACE!
(John 6:12). “When they had all had enough to eat, he said to his disciples, ‘Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted’”
WHEN THEY WERE ALL SATISFIED AND ALL HAD ENOUGH TO EAT, THEY WERE STILL ABLE TO GATHER TWELVE BASKETS FULL OF BREAD. (John 6:13) “So they gathered them and filled twelve baskets with the pieces of the five barley loaves left over by those who had eaten.”
UNDER GRACE, SUBTRACTION IS MULTIPLICATION! IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE FIVE LOAVES WERE BROKEN AND DISTRIBUTED, MULTIPLICATION HAPPENED.
Please bear with me for using all capital letters for my comments and small letters for my bible verses. You see, Facebook does not allow bold, italics or the use of different fonts. I tried using all caps for my bible verses and small letters for my comments, but it looked awkward. Thank you for your understanding.
