IT’S INTERESTING TO NOTE THAT JESUS WAS BORN IN “BETHLEHEM” WHICH LITERALLY MEANS “HOUSE OF BREAD”. THE SIGN THE ANGEL GAVE TO THE SHEPHERDS FOR THEM TO RECOGNIZE THE NEWLY BORN MESSIAH WAS, “A BABY WRAPPED IN CLOTHS AND LYING IN A MANGER”.
(Luke 2:11-12) “Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
THE WORD “MANGER” LITERALLY MEANS “TO EAT”. ON ONE OCCASION THE LORD JESUS CHRIST DECLARED TO THE JEWS THAT HE IS THE “BREAD OF LIFE!” THERE IS ONLY ONE SPIRITUAL FOOD WE CHRISTIANS MUST EAT AND CRAVE FOR–CHRIST, THE BREAD OF LIFE! FOR THE CHURCH TO LIVE IN VICTORY IT IS A MUST FOR HER TO FEED ON CHRIST! THERE IS NO OTHER WAY.
(John 6:48-51a) “I am the bread of life. Your forefathers ate the manna in the desert, yet they died. But here is the bread that comes down from heaven, which a man may eat and not die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever”
