Hidden Manna Of God
John 6:63 It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.
Psalm 119:50 This is my comfort in my affliction, For Your word has given me life.
Revelation 2:17 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it.” ‘
Talking about how we can understand the deep truths of the Bible in the union of Christ’s spirit within us and the words of life.

Hi Rachel, from this comment I know you have chosen Jesus. As Jesus said, we can only make people aware of the Almighty & His plan. When the individual person chooses to fallow in the ways of God is when Jesus sends the Spirit to teach. — Both old & new testiment say, ” when taught by God you need no other teacher” I feel this to be the reason Jesus chose (mostly) ignorant & unlearned men to be His apostels. Even Paul (a highly educated man) said he & the other apostels did not venture to class to be taught about God by other men. — Philip caught up to the man in the chariot, only making the connection between God & His plan. Philip was not in the retail-Jesus-buisness of passing the hat; he left the man to be taught by the Spirit. Peter said, men twist the scripture to their own destruction (as well as those who take their words to heart, instead of daily seaching the scripture to see if what has been said is truth). Jesus said, “is this not why you are wrong, you know neither the power of God nor the scripture”

Hi … yes it is the Holy Spirt’s work to teach us .. you see the apostles understood this in the NT. And something that isn’t understood on a large scale today. Though I pray that is changing.
