Eating Bread from Heaven

There were times when the LORD God fed his people with bread from heaven. It was not “the Eucharist.” Rather, it was a miraculous provision that kept them alive.



Exodus 16:4. Then the LORD said to Moses, “Behold, I will rain bread from the sky for you, and the people shall go out and gather a day’s portion every day, that I may test them, whether they will walk in my law or not.

Nehemiah 9:15. and gave them bread from the sky for their hunger, and brought water out of the rock for them for their thirst, and commanded them that they should go in to possess the land which you had sworn to give them.

Psalm 78:24. He rained down manna on them to eat, and gave them food from the sky.

Psalm 78:25. Man ate the bread of angels. He sent them food to the full.

Psalm 81:16. But he would have also fed them with the finest of the wheat. I will satisfy you with honey out of the rock.

John 6:31. Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness. As it is written, ‘He gave them bread out of heaven to eat.’
