John 6:56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.
Eating this flesh and drinking this blood mean believing in Christ.
John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
His teaching is to be, not carnally, but spiritually understood. They think of a physical eating of His flesh, and this offends them;
It is not therefore the carnal eating of my flesh that I intended, that is a very gross conception of yours;
nor can any such thing as that do you good:
but the words that I speak to you, they are spiritual, and such by the belief of which you may obtain a spiritual and eternal life;
for by believing those words, and obeying them, you shall come to believe in me, which is that eating my flesh and drinking my blood which I intended, not any corporeal or carnal eating.
the flesh profiteth nothing—Much of His discourse was about “flesh”; but flesh as such, mere flesh, could profit nothing, much less impart that life which the Holy Spirit alone communicates to the soul.
John 7:38-39 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)
Matthew 15:17 Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?
Acts 7:48-50 Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet, Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest? Hath not my hand made all these things?
The martyrs spoke against the false Roman Catholic doctrine of Transubstantiation. Many were martyred for their faithfulness in defending the truth of God’s Word.

Update November 8, 2019
I received a comment today regarding Kanye West and thought I’d update my earlier post (below) by sharing it…
“John 15:18-25 NIV
“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’[a] If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the one who sent me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not be guilty of sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin. Whoever hates me hates my Father as well. If I had not done among them the works no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin. As it is, they have seen, and yet they have hated both me and my Father. But this is to fulfill what is written in their Law: ‘They hated me without reason.’”
Its suspicious that the world loves him. The world does not love Christ.
I dont believe he is genuine, if you watch his interviews he claims he is the best musician ever(still very arrogant and proud), he doesnt use any gospel in his music or teaching, people have to be invited and then pay in order to get into one of his “sunday services”. He also is selling sweatpants and sweat shirts for several hundred dollars that says “Jesus is King” with “Kanye West” on it. Twitter takes down anything that says “Jesus is King” because Kanye West has practically trade marked that term. Not only that, Youtube recently promoted an unknown rapper, Dax, and his song “Dear God”. It contains at least 12 expletives and is actually blasphemous. I believe the false new age religion will take place under the guise of Christianity. Be careful who you trust.
1 John 4:1 ESV / “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.”
Matthew 7:15-23 ESV / “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. …”
We must be careful who we trust.”

It sounds like Kanye West was truly born again. Praying that this newborn, by God’s grace, grows into a solid discerning believer.
“Adam Tyson, senior pastor of Placerita Bible Church in Santa Clarita, California, has started making appearances at West’s eye-catching “Sunday Service” events across the country, where he’s shared an unfiltered Gospel message. While his presence on the stage is new, Tyson has been working with West for a while now.”
Luke 15:7 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.
1 Peter 2:2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:
An elderly man needs prayer…
I was out having lunch today when an elderly man, with his arm in a sling, walked by to sit down at a nearby table. A girl who worked there was carrying his tray and asked him if he needed anything. He said no, and she left. When he went to sit down he lost his balance and did a pretty scary wobble before he caught himself from falling. It was pretty close.
I wanted to go over and ask again if I could get anything for him, and as I procrastinated someone else approached his table and asked if he could be of help. Again he kindly replied he didn’t need any help. The man offering to help looked down at the elderly man’s hand and asked what happened. It was then that I noticed that his hand was very swollen and discolored. The elderly man replied that he had gotten his hand caught in a chair!
The man who offered help returned to his own table and said to his companions “we can pray for him”.
The elderly man finished his sandwich and left.
I wish I could have asked him if he had seen a doctor about his hand. I got the feeling that he hadn’t. I hope I’m wrong.
Please pray for him.
