If you husbands will love your wife as Christ loves the Church, you won't need to raise your voice or hit her, for she will love you so much that she will revere you. God Himself has ordained it: Unto the woman He said, ... your desire shall be to your husband, and he shall rule over thee. (Genesis 3:16b ACP/KJV)

Thank God for Steve,
All Scripture quoted, in both sermons and daily thoughts, except when done by a guest, is from the ACP/authorized 1611 King James Version. The words in red are those quotes of God the Son, the Lord Jesus and the words in purple are those qoutes spoken directly by God the Father and the words in this sickly greenish color are of satan. But all of the Bible is spoken by God and should be viewed as God's handbook for us to run our lives by 2 Timothy 3:16.
We are just as dense today, maybe even more so. Today we are going to look at John six. I would strongly suggest that you take the time to open your Bible and read all of John six, but we are going to concentrate on verses 22-30.
22 The day following, when the people which stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was none other boat there, save that one whereinto His disciples were entered, and that Jesus went not with His disciples into the boat, but that His disciples were gone away alone; 23 (Howbeit there came other boats from Tiberias nigh unto the place where they did eat bread, after that the Lord had given thanks:) 24 When the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, neither His disciples, they also took shipping, and came to Capernaum, seeking for Jesus.
25 And when they had found Him on the other side of the sea, they said unto Him, "Rabbi, when camest thou hither?" 26 Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek Me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled. 27 Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for Him hath God the Father sealed.
28 Then said they unto Him, "What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?" 29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on Him (Yeshua) whom He (Yahweh) hath sent. 30 They said therefore unto Him, "What sign shewest Thou then, that we may see, and believe Thee? what dost Thou work? (John 6:22-30 ACP/KJV)
Let me summerize what has happened here. Before our reading beings, Jesus has fed 5,000 men plus women and children, so probably around 20-30,000 people, with just a few fish and a few loaves of bread. Prior to that they had seen Him heal people who were blind, people with crippling diseases and infirmities, people who were devil possessed, lepers etc. They had wanted to make Him a king. Note the a, not the king, but a king. And is it any wonder. Imagine having an earthly king who could feed an army, heal an army, and even raise dead soldiers back up to life.
Jesus had gone up on a mountain to be alone and pray. The people knew He had not gotten on the ship with His disciples, but they saw Him on the other side of the lake in Capernaum. And that's were we come in on verse 22.
The people are looking at Jesus, knowing He hadn't been aboard one of the boats they took and knowing that He had not gotten on the boat the disciples had taken, looked at Him and said "How did you get here?"
Jesus answers them, not by telling them how He got there, but instead by telling them what was on their hearts. In essence He says to them, you don't come to Me because of the miracle of My being here, you come looking for a side show and a free meal. This tells us that Jesus reads your heart, not relying upon the words that come out of your mouth. He goes on and tells them not to be so concerned with earthly food, but instead to focus on doing God's work. Now they think of God's work as doing 'tricks' like healing people and feeding thousands with only enough for one. However, Jesus straightens them out by telling them, you and me, what the work of God really is for us as individuals to do: "This is the work of God, that ye believe on Him (Yeshua) whom He (Yahweh) hath sent."
"This is the work of God, that ye believe on Him (Yeshua) whom He (Yahweh) hath sent." What Jesus is telling them, you and me, is that the single most important thing any of us can do is voluntarily choose to serve, honor, obey and give our lives to Jesus. To be Born Again washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians.
But, they, like so many today, won't accept that, so they say: Hey do a trick, show us a sign, and then maybe we'll believe You.
Lord, as I do this next proofreading of Gospel as recorded by John, please be with me, help me find and correct all of the mistakes. And Lord please give me insight into Your word, help me to understand the things You would have me understand, for Lord, I know that the true bread of life is Your word, for man does no live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of You, God. Thank You Jesus, amen.

The difference between a true preacher and a false preacher comes down to this. The true preacher uses God's word to convict of sin, the false preacher twist God's word to justify sin. The Lord our God, Christ Jesus be with you always, amen.
The Lord our God, Christ Jesus, be with you all and please keep your pastor and me in your prayers. Amen. My prayer daily is "Lord please bless those tenfold who bless me."
Pray for me, pray for all those who open their mouths or take pen in hand in an effort to sway public opinion.
The Lord God of the Universe, Messiah Y'shua be with you all, amen.
It is better to be a horse fly in the stables of the Lord Jesus than the CEO of hell.
