Twelve Symbols # 6
Praise the Lord Saints! We are back to bring you Symbol 6 in the Bible. The 6th Symbol is “
Food”; in reality, it is “Nourishment to the Soul.”
1 Corinthians 3:2 reads as follows (ASV) “I gave you milk to drink, not solid food; for you were not yet able to receive it. Indeed, even now you are not yet able…
Here the apostle is not referencing a certain doctrine, but instead the truths that sound doctrine hold to what are easily digestible. Also given to new believers; for the most part drinking liquids are easily digested.
Matthew 4:4 reads as follows (ASV) “But He answered and said, ‘It is written, man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.” This reply from Jesus was taken from Deuteronomy 8:3 stating that God allowed Israel to hunger so that He might feed them with manna and teach them to trust Him to provide for them. This verse applies to the situation Jesus was in and was a perfect reply to Satan’s temptation attempt.
Hebrews 5:12-14 states that after eating your bread and drinking your milk you should be ready for solid food (meat). You should be teaching and sharing the word of God but instead you are not accustomed to the word of righteousness, therefore remaining an infant.
Knowledge without obedience can never advance anyone. In fact, by rejecting saving faith the Hebrews were regressing in their understanding of the Messiah. This is a message about the righteousness of Christ that we have by faith!
