“You Aint Seen Nuthin Yet Until God Breaks You”

Count it to be an opportunity. A time when His Holy Presence, and Spirit is able to shed light from within you out through the cracks of your breaking.
Yes, He breaks your security (not founded upon Him) , your sleep of illusion, your bed of roses.
He breaks your illusion of self, the miasma of incorrect perceptions, illusory assessments, and shines upon the lives of the ones who could not have anticipated that their deliverance, nurture, feeding, and hope,  would come at the expense of your breaking.

The formula for breaking; found in Mathew 14:15-21
Jesus had been addressing the multitudes for a great length. The disciples bring to His attention that, it is getting late, to send them (multitude) off (for they were content just to stand about, and hear Him.) that they might obtain food for themselves.
“Give ye them to eat.”, is Jesus’ response. For as much as they had but five loaves and two fish, they informed the Master, they are unable to feed them all.
“Bring them to me.” (the five loaves and two fish) Jesus tells them.
He instructs the multitude to sit around upon the grass.

And looking up to heaven he blessed them, and breaks them, gives the pieces to the disciples, and in turn the disciples give to the multitude.
Every one was filled, and yet there were a remainder of twelve baskets full.

The key to this whole story is found in the little word, blessed. That one word is translated from the Greek word, eulogaiea. It is from that word that we have the English word eulogy.

At a eulogy the speaker will say good things about the dearly departed.
John Doe was a good ole boy, a good husband, provider, father, and a pillar of the community.

In essence;

Looking up to heaven (Jesus), Well Father, these five loaves and two fish were a fine specimen when you created them in their natural state, but now Father, (break, crack, crunch) they will be Supernatural.

So it goes with us; “Well Father, Miguel was considered a good ole boy (born of Adam, Fallen State), but now Father, (break, crack, crunch) he will be much, much more!

(as a result) Look at him now boy, see him run, wasting all his time on face book writing stuff that no one pays any attention to, ya gotta love a fool for the Lord. Can I get a witness!
Read Heb 12:5-11, On despising not the Lord’s chastening.

There were 12 basket full remaining. The number 12 is the number for “God’s governmental control” That is to say that when He is in control, no one will lack, and, in the case of His orchestrated breaking, it all works out to the benefit of the masses.

As per the numerical application of the number 12; we have, for example: 12 apostles, 12 gates of Jerusalem to control traffic, and the 12 tribes of Israel.

Thank you for reading!

  1. To understand God’s Discipline Mike, which is time out, yes He sees sinners from afar and does not hear their prayers accept those of repentance and so we reap the evil we sow, like the Prodigal Son did until he came to his senses and repented but Wow what a welcome home.

    To also understand God’s Chastening which comes through those in the Body of Christ who rebuke us in Love and for Love, when we continue to sin, they rebuke us so that Satan does not get a foothold in our lives, we need to understand first God’s heart of Love for us, His good will and plans for us (1Corinthians2:9-16) but we can’t do this in the Carnal flesh, it must be put to death (Romans 8 :12-15-Romans 6 – Colossians 3:4-6 -Galatians 5:24 -26) as we aim to be Perfected in Love.

    Matthew 5:48 Be ye therefore Perfect, even as your Father which is in Heaven is Perfect.

    Hebrews 6:1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto Perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,

    2 Corinthians 7: 1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, Perfecting Holiness in the fear of God.

    2 Timothy 3:16-17 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be Perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

    2Corinthians 13:11 Finally, brethren, farewell. Be Perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in Peace; and the God of Love and Peace shall be with you.

    1John 4:17-19 Herein is our Love made Perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in Love; but Perfect Love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made Perfect in Love. We Love Him, because He first Loved us.

    As you shared before Mike, we all go through Satan’s testing and temptations as Jesus did too and Job, Abraham, John the Baptist, Paul etc Satan has won the right to do this because of the fall, he controls this world for evil all good things come from God but no Temptation will be greater than we can bear, as we ask Jesus He will provide a way out so we can stand up under it and we will than walk in Victory, God will raise us up!

    Christian Love – Anne.
