Bread of the Presence

The Bread of Life

Happy holy days everyone! This Holy Celebration begins and ends with the breaking of bread. We gather together to eat, drink and have a Merry Christmas.

Jesus calls Himself, “The Bread of Life” in John 6:35 –

Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst.

Hungry in the Wilderness

In the Old Testament we learn how the Israelites wandered in the wilderness and became hungry. A wise man named Moses prayed and Manna rained from Heaven. We were hungry for fellowship with our God. Wise men prayed. Wise men searched and found the “Manna from Heaven” lying in a feeding trough. A shivering child born to Mary in what else, but a manger!

Also in the Old Testament, the shewbread was placed in the tabernacle according to the Law. 12 loaves for a week. The bread was to be before our LORD 24/7 to represent HIS presence being with us at all times. The bread was replaced on the Sabbath. Only the priests were allowed to eat the bread and it was to be eaten in a holy place.

Why twelve loaves?  They represented the 12 tribes of Israel and I would submit the 12 disciples after the coming of Christ. Israel was the pathway for the Son of Man to be born into the world. The 12 disciples were the pathway for the Son of Man to be shared with the world.

I am the bread of life
You who come to Me shall not hunger
And those who believe in Me shall not thirst


Manna sustained the Israelites for awhile. They were searching for a land flowing with milk and honey. (Ex. 33:3) Green pastures. After 40 years, they entered and the land provided. It produced milk and honey. There were times of peace and times of war. There were Sabbath days and Sabbath years. God provided. They wanted a king. God provided. David, from the tribe of Judah was the bloodline.

Why a Manger?

Our KING of all KINGS was born in a manger. The shewbread that anyone can partake of. Was this bread holy? The MOST. Was it for priests only? No, it was offered to the whole world. It is still offered to all who believe. We can come to HIM and fellowship with HIM just as if we are sharing a meal with a brother. We respect and adore our KING, and we have access to HIM 24/7.  Jesus said,

The bread that I will give
Is My flesh for the life of the world
And if you eat of this bread
You shall live forever

Dessert cordials

Our KING, did something no other King has ever done. HE laid down HIS life. No one took it. No one murdered HIM. HE gave it as a gift. The wise men brought gifts. Myrrh was to embalm HIS body, gold as a symbol of kingship and the frankincense symbolized priesthood. Our sacrifice, the LAMB of GOD, raised HIMSELF, THE HIGH PRIEST, on the HOLIEST of SABBATH DAYS to sit forever at the right hand of the FATHER, making another pathway.

I am the resurrection
I am the life
If you believe in Me
Even though you die
You shall live forever

Spread the good news! Sing unto the LORD! Deck the halls and prepare the feast! The Bread of the Presence was born in a manger! HE is among us.

Joy to the World

From the 2nd Chapter of Luke:

In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while[a] Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to their own town to register.

So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child.While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night.


An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”


13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,

14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven,
    and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”

16 So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger.

Holy Family

17 When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18 and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 19 But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20 The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.Wise Men Worship

Matthew 2: 1,2:

After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”

Christ Child

“Wise men still seek Him. Wise men still worship Him.”

Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man comes to the Father but by me.” (John 14:6) There is only one path leading to heaven, eternal life and forgiveness of sin … Jesus Christ.


“Joy to the world, Christ the Savior is born.”

Alone for Christmas

As I sit beside my decorated tree with Christmas music playing and my adult children wrapping presents in the next room; I am reminded that there are many who may be spending Christmas alone.

First Christmas Along

If you are one of those dear people, this post is in your honor. Whether you’ve lost a loved one, become recently divorced, sent your son or daughter off to serve in our military or had to place your loved one in a nursing facility this year, the loneliness may feel overwhelming.

Knowing the holidays are meant to be joyful, empathy for the lonely may be the most valuable gift an elf can offer. That, along with a cup of friendship.

First Christmas Alone

It is my prayer that your tears will soon dry, that you will soon feel the warmth of a long embrace and that the chatter of many voices will soon fill the silent nights. While some of your memories may bring on the blues, may the twinkling of the lights on the trees remind you of a star in the east. A promise that you will never truly walk alone shines through each and every point.

First Christmas Alone

If the plans you had made with loved ones leave you feeling dark and lonely; I pray that it won’t be long until the anticipation of Christmas morning felt in the heart of a child, is how you soon feel about your future.

First Christmas Alone

If your nights in solitary are spent with concern over the safety of a loved one far away, I pray the thoughts of a King who had no crib for a bed, and a price on his head, gives you hope that there are wise men close by.

First Christmas Alone

And if by chance, you are suffering from a broken heart because of a love that has failed you, may the One True Love give you comfort with this:

The LORD is near to the brokenhearted
and saves the crushed in spirit.  Psalm 34:18 

First Christmas Alone

May His love be an ornament that you adore in the stillness of night.

First Christmas Alone

And while the Spirit is near, may your friends and family be His arms, His voice, His comfort and His gift during this season.

First Christmas Alone

May your days and nights be filled with sweet stories.

First Christmas Alone Merry Christmas to all those who are alone. I pray it is more joyful than you expect. I pray that loneliness will be a brief visitor and that joy comes to you like it did thousands of years ago… in the middle of the night, at a place you never thought to look and no matter your age, may you be swaddled in faith, hope and love by the Father Himself.

First Christmas Alone
