The Bread Man

The Bread Man…

Joseph is a foreshadow of Jesus. Like Jesus, Joseph is rejected by his brothers, he descends to the depths, and is raised up and given a new name. Pharaoh called him, Zephenath-paneah, the bread of life or the bread man.

Joseph was the bread man when Egypt was in a famine. Joseph gave them bread. Remember, Joseph is the shadow of Jesus. The rabbis even called him Messiah, Son of Joseph, or Ben Yosef. Jesus, like Joseph, is the bread man.

If we spend too much time away from Yeshua, we grow weak; like having no bread. He’s the only one who can fill our souls. If you haven’t been spending much time with Jesus, you are not just missing time with the Lord, but missing time with the Bread Man, and your soul is not full.

Turn back to the Bread of our lives. Spend time in His presence. Taste and see that the Lord is good. He’s not only the Lord, He’s the Bread Man; the Bread of Life–the Bread of your life. Away from Him, you can’t help but be empty. Draw near to Him, my friend, and be filled.

Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. John 6:35

Draw ever closer to Jesus and be filled with His presence, and fill yourself up with the Bread of His presence.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
