Jesus said pray like this; Our Father who art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy Kingdom Come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. ( Matt. 6)
Intimacy Protects us
Strongholds and Bondages can be built when we get stuck in partial truths and stop growing, when we stop hungering for more. When we stop seeking Him for new, for fresh. Of everything, fresh manna, fresh in-filling, fresh baptism, ect.
A fresh rhema word comes out of the logos word by the Spirit.
Strongholds and Bondage
A stronghold is a structure/fortress of thought, patterns of thinking. Intimacy in secret place keeps us in the fresh and new! Causing us to hunger and thirst for the written truth and the Spirit. The truth, whole truth, and nothing but the truth. If we have a wrong pattern of thinking on something or only a partial truth, our intimate walking with God makes room for this to be exposed and corrected.
Entire religous systems and structures, even denominations have been built because someone settled in a revelation or movement and stopped pursuing the whole truth, the rest of the truth or they never checked with the Book of Truth. They eat a piece of bread but not the loaf.

Wineskins- Both old and new are Preserved
Never updating sound, environment, method, delivery, never updating, restoring, repairing, remodeling will cause an old structure void of the Fresh Life of the Spirit. We update & upgrade by our “daily bread/daily walking in the Spirit”. We keep the wine (Spirit) moving! 🍷Ever seen people swirl their wine, smell it, then taste? Move it, discern it, taste it! There must be movement, flowing, breathing of the wine.
What’s sealed (corked🍾 remains fresh for ages) We have Wine that has been sealed for ages! But that the Lord will unseal and pour!
Neither do people pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst; the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.” Matt. 9:17
Food in our home
We have to eat daily bread, fresh manna! Not wanting to get stuck eating “yesterday’s manna” for it will eventually mold and cause our “house to be found with mold and mildew”. We will become sickly. Our “house” will become contaminated.
2 Cor. 5:1 ( WE) Our body is the house in which our spirit lives here on earth.
Climate, temperature, atmosphere are effected and changed by His Presence. Our environment makes a difference in our lives. For good or bad.
When His Presence leaves the climate changes. Where the Spirit is quenched the rain does not fall. When prophecy is absent, life will drain from a place. Prophetic words like rhema is full of Life and Spirit, breathed upon by Ruach Hokodesh. The Breath of the Spirit of the Living God brings life.
Mold & Mildew occur from wrong moisture and temperatures. Hot or cold lukewarm brings stagnation.
So because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to vomit you out of My mouth! Rev. 3:16 (BSB)
We need His Presence! We need His seasons and all they bring!
The old testament priests deemed homes unclean and requiring emptying and restoration in the old testament.
33 The Lord told Moses and Aaron to say to the people:
34 After I have given you the land of Canaan as your permanent possession, here is what you must do, if I ever put mildew on the walls of any of your homes. 35 First, you must say to a priest, “I think mildew is on the wall of my house.”
36 The priest will reply, “Empty the house before I inspect it, or else everything in it will be unclean.”
37 If the priest discovers greenish or reddish spots that go deeper than the surface of the walls, 38 he will have the house closed for seven days. 39 Then he will return and check to see if the mildew has spread.
43 If the mildew appears a second time, 44 the priest will come and say, “This house is unclean. It’s covered with mildew that can’t be removed.” 45 Then he will have the house torn down and every bit of wood, stone, and plaster hauled off to an unclean place outside the town. 46 Meanwhile, if any of you entered the house while it was closed, you will be unclean until evening.
If the house if found clean. There is a test of evidence. The symbolism here with the Blood of Christ and the Holy Spirit’s descending like a bird is beautiful reminder of our New Testament Grace. Born again, spirit-filled believers have been cleansed and sealed. Stewardship of that is a matter of obedience.
49 Then, to show that the house is now clean, he will get two birds, a stick of cedar wood, a piece of red yarn, and a branch from a hyssop plant and bring them to the house. 50 He will kill one of the birds over a clay pot of spring water 51-52 and let its blood drain into the pot. Then he will dip the cedar, the hyssop, the yarn, and the other bird into the mixture of blood and water. Next, he will sprinkle the house seven times with the mixture, then the house will be completely clean. 53 Finally, he will release the bird and let it fly away, ending the ceremony for purifying the house.
54-57 These are the things you must do if you discover that you are unclean because of an itch or a sore, or that your clothing or house is unclean because of mildew. ( Lev. 14)
Jesus gave his life and shed His own blood for our cleansing, sent His word to wash us and build us even giving us a Helper to understand the Master Craftsman’s plan for our ‘house’. We are saved by grace through faith. We continue on in obedience. Obedience includes the upkeep or maintaining our home, our life.

Daily Bread / Fresh Manna
Jesus said Eat My flesh and Drink My Blood
This we do this symbolically in remembrance with Communion. But we do daily in relationship.
Coming from the written word spoken, Logos becomes rhema. Yesterday’s revelation TRUTH digested becomes the nutrition I need to go and search for my bread today.
What you eat yesterday is fueling your body today.
31 The people of Israel called the bread manna. It was white like coriander seed and tasted like wafers made with honey. 32 Moses said, “This is what the Lord has commanded: ‘Take an omer of manna and keep it for the generations to come, so they can see the bread I gave you to eat in the wilderness when I brought you out of Egypt.’”
33 So Moses said to Aaron, “Take a jar and put an omer of manna in it. Then place it before the Lord to be kept for the generations to come.”
34 As the Lord commanded Moses, Aaron put the manna with the tablets of the covenant law, so that it might be preserved. 35 The Israelites ate manna forty years, until they came to a land that was settled; they ate manna until they reached the border of Canaan. Ex. 16:31- 35
A Preserved Source
Revelation/Truth does not become outdated. Manna is preserved from generations to generations. We put “manna” with the tablets. We take the daily bread with the tablets”.
The New Testament revealed is the Old Testament concealed. Manna+tablets.
Matt. 5:17, Jesus said, “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.
It is awesome when we get revelation in the Word, causing reviving and quickening to our spirit man to come ALIVE, be energized. This is because we just ate! We do like to eat! Eating truth brings us life!
We never let go of TRUTH, but we let the Spirit of God breath, Ruach upon the truth and bring it alive again and again, causing fresh manna to be fed to nourish us.
I am not speaking of some crazy left-field something that cannot be backed by the written word. I am speaking of God revealing the truth hidden in His Word to us personally. Feeding the manna from Heaven to us by His Spirit. Feasting upon who He is, the Bread of Presence. Drinking of His Well of Living Water, being filled with the wine of His Spirit. We are to hunger for the Word and Thirst for the Spirit. Blessed are they that hunger and thirst shall be filled.
Just because you have never heard or seen it does not mean it’s false. How can you apply what you do not understand or how can you eat what you do not recognize? The Word is layered with revelation food. Numbers, symbols, parables all have meaning. Hidden riddles, types, and foreshadows are like hidden manna.
To refuse or be “fearful” of new due to there being a false out there is to be cowardly and slothful. Study requires work and effort, but we are to be disciples of Christ. God has commanded us to seek! Seek ye first the Kingdom of God. Remembering and holding fast to the anchor that revelation must be land upon a foundation of written truth.
Revelation builds like truths needing a landing zone. Brick and mortar, with wisdom being the principal (foundation) thing, understanding cementing it in, revelation adds heighth to walls and joints truths building. Build your house.
If you can’t prove it in the Word, Run! Be diligent to seek and find, not ignore or refuse.
However we should expect revelation of what is written to come to us personally, even as we go through the ages coorporately, not building doctrines and denominations on one piece of bread, only having part. This is how we have many “denominations/divisions” someone settled on a piece of bread, revelation and built doctrine out of it.
Doctrine is a belief or set of beliefs held by an individual or group. The only ‘doctrine’ kingdom believers want is that which is already written by Jesus the Christ and spoken through His apostles. But we need the Ruach breath of the Spirit to blow upon that doctrine and give understanding to us so that we apply it to building our lives. Otherwise we become religous. This is partly why Jesus sent the Holy Spirit.
The truth will set us free, but to believe we all have ALL the truth and stop digging, excavating truth from the Book of Truth with the Spirit of Truth is just going to make us ignorant.
Don’t get stuck eating dry toast out of fear of something new, living in an environment void of Presence, or stagnate and lukewarm.
Examine with Evidence of Word
Don’t accept something new without checking with that Always New beautiful Written Truth that still lives and speaks today! Anchor yourselves as you seek! Learn to dig. Learn to plow, learn to reap the goodness of God!
What you eat & drink, how you move, and where you live determines who you are. Build you, build your house, build your environment. We do this we become Kingdom Builders advancing the Kingdom. We effect our environment by what we carry or our environment effects us. Sadly, many become a product of their environment at an early age then remain stuck with that inside of them. The children of Israel came out of Egypt, but then needed to get Egypt out of them.
For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Rom. 14:17
But seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you. Matt. 6:33
What all these things? The provisions, the natural things needed, because when He has your attention, you have His. What Love!
