Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2016 April 6

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth” (John 1:1-14).

Today’s Morsel:  One of the things I’ve learned about reading the Bible is that if you go too fast or you get distracted, which Satan wants, is that you can miss out on some key scriptures that can help with your understanding. According to John’s writing, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made… He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not.”  If we understand that the world was made by Him, and that He was in the world, then we should understand that this passage is referring to Jesus Christ (John 1:14).  As the apostle Paul would later write, “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory” (1 Timothy 3:16). “Whom say ye that I am,” asked Jesus?  I ask today, "Who do you say He is?" 

Sing: The Mighty God is Jesus, the Prince of Peace is He, the Everlasting Father, The King Eternally, The Wonderful in Wisdom, by whom all things were made, the fullness of the Godhead in Jesus is displayed.
It’s all in Him! It’s all in Him! The fullness of the Godhead is all in Him. It’s all in Him! It’s all in Him! The Mighty God is Jesus, and it’s all in Him.

Thought For Today: Truth will make you free!

  1. I have gone through your post and came to know that it is regarding the illusion of control. But this concept is not at all clear to me. I would like to know more on this topic. Please provide it
