“WHAT SHALL WE EAT, OR DRINK?

Matthew 6:31-32 KJV
Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? Or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? [32] (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye need all these things.
Matthew 14:29-31 KJV
And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on water to go to Jesus. [30] But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. [31] And immediately, Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

PRE-AMBLE by Robert

Isn’t it amazing we will spend our lives concerning ourselves with putting food on the table, and only days preparing our spirit for eternity? I state this in awe of what our Lord said to Peter when he floundered and reached out to the Lord, while sinking, after having walked on water. O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

As we see in the testimony, it was not because he couldn’t do it, but because he doubted his faith, he feared, and most of all, took his eyes off of the Lord. I wonder how many who profess to believe in Yeshua, are doing the very same things as Peter?

Doubt in our faith, facing the promises of Yeshua and the Father with even the smallest piece of uncertainty in our hearts? Why, if we are believers, are born again, learning to deepen our personal relationship with Yeshua? At times like Peter, when in the middle of turmoil, we take our eyes off of the Lord, filled with doubt, find ourselves in chaos, reaching out to the Lord to rescue us.

Wait, wait, but what I’m talking about, is an everyday activity, of those in the assembly who each day labour at various professions to maintain their lives as they continue their journey and put their full dependence on those earnings to sustain them.

OPENING STATEMENT by Robert

So explain then, how one, while walking with the Lord, living in this world, we are to sustain ourselves? How do we maintain our homes, feed our families, sustain our position in society, and continue in the lifestyle we have built through hard work?

Wow, what a series of questions and statements coming from those in the assembly of believers. Where in these questions do you see any form of faith in our Lord’s promises?

Our current situation within the pandemic facing the population of the world has brought forward a series of questions, serious questions for all in the world. What is your position in your spiritual walk? What is the depth of your faith? Are you keeping your eyes on Yeshua? Do you believe the Lord will protect and provide?
Or are you like Peter as he walked on water letting doubt and fear overcome you?

The apostle deals plainly with those who hearkened to Judaizing teachers, who preached the law of Moses in competition with the gospel of Christ and endeavoured to bring them under the bondage of it.

He in his information reveals comparable information to what is being taught in our modern-day churches. To convince them of their folly, and to rectify their mistake, he prosecutes the comparison of a child under age, and thence shows what great advantages we have now, under the gospel, above what they had under the law.

The Apostle acquaints us with the state of the Old-Testament church. It was like a child under age, and it was used accordingly, being kept in a state of darkness and bondage, in comparison of the greater light and liberty which we enjoy under the gospel.

That was indeed a dispensation of grace, and yet it was comparatively a dispensation of darkness for as the heir, in his minority, is under tutors and governors till the time appointed of his father, by whom he is educated and instructed in those things which at present he knows little of the meaning of, though afterwards they are likely to be of great use to him so it was with the Old-Testament church–the Mosaic economy, which they were under, was what they could not fully understand the meaning of for, as the apostle says (2 Corinthians 3:13), They could not steadfastly look to the end of that which is abolished.

The gospel is a more clear dispensation than the law; the things of God are revealed in the New Testament, not in types and shadows, and ministers are much to blame if they do not set spiritual things, and gospel-truth and grace, in the clearest light that is possible.

CLOSING STATEMENT by Robert

Matthew 19:20-22 KJV
The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet? [21] Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt, be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me. [22] But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.

“Ok,” here it is the bottom line, during this closure of the world’s economy multitudes are faced with losing what they have garnered in this world as being important. That includes those professing to be following Yeshua.

The statement here is as individuals, you are being subjected to the same answer as the young man who had created great wealth. What is being revealed here is what each individual considers his personal wealth and what is most important in your walk.

The sounding of the “Trumpet!”

As Yeshua did during the storm, He called Peter to walk to Him. What our Lord is asking of his flock during this spiritual storm, is “calling His flock to Him.” He is asking those in faith to choose, whether to walk with him in faith, allowing Him to guide, protect, and provide. Or as Peter did, take your eyes off the Lord and as the young man demonstrated, return to what the world is offering.

The Trumpet has sounded, the choice is now your’s to make.

Matthew 6:31-32 KJV
Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? Or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? [32] (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye need all these things.

Please remember these articles are the work of a humble servant of Yeshua doing His bidding as a Watchmen sounding the Trumpet to warn of impending danger within the Assembly. May our Father abundantly bless each one of you with wisdom and discernment to go forward as “Modern Day Disciples.”

Thou will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee, Trust ye in the Lord forever: for in the Lord Yeshua is everlasting strength(Isaiah 26:3-4)
