When you eat the spiritual bread which comes down from heaven, you illuminate the face of God through your spirit when you agree in truth and receive what God has for you. When Holy Communion is received, the shew bread or spiritual bread of Jesus Christ is given in the tradition of the Last Supper which has its origins in the Old Testament.
In the Old Testament, the Hebraic priest would take shew bread, which is another word for the “bread of face,” then give it to another. This is what Jesus did at the last supper, but even more so, he became the spiritual sacrifice on the cross. He is the spiritual bread and is the new and living way in looking at the law. Jesus became the bread of life. “My life I give to you.” His life for eternal life.
God gives us knowledge through the face of Jesus Christ, the anointed one, or shew bread 2 Corinthians 4:16. Jesus said “I am the bread of life.” “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes out of the mouth of God.” In John, Chapter 6, Jesus said: “The words that I speak to you; they are spirit and life.” Reading the word of God helps us understand the spiritual side of God’s plan, and the fulfillment of his plan when he came as Jesus. Jesus is the sacrifice going beyond animal sacrifice because God’s plan was to redeem man from his sins.
