Teaching [Past posts below]
I taught mostly from Kings 18- and then covered the verses from the Mass as well as Rock City Corpus and a few from Church Unlimited.
Being I taught an entire study on Kings- I will simply add those teachings below.
The theme was in keeping with the last Sunday Sermon post- https://ccoutreach87.com/2018/08/12/sunday-sermon-8-12-18/
And the verses showed God’s provisions- for his people- and how in the case of Elijah an angel actually provided Bread and water for the discouraged prophet-
1Kings 19:5 And as he lay and slept under a juniper tree, behold, then an angel touched him, and said unto him, Arise and eat.
1Kings 19:6 And he looked, and, behold, there was a cake baken on the coals, and a cruse of water at his head. And he did eat and drink, and laid him down again.
1Kings 19:7 And the angel of the LORD came again the second time, and touched him, and said, Arise and eat; because the journey is too great for thee.
The passage from John  and the psalms spoke of he heavenly Bread- and the provision- as well as angelic intervention.
From the Psalms we read-
Psalm 34:7 The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.
Psalm 34:8 O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
We see both the angel of the Lord- and the table that God provides.
In Elijah’s case- he was at the end of his rope- and was ready to die.
Yet the angel fed him- twice.
To me this is also a type of the second meal- or New testament.
The first meal had a purpose- it was to supply us in a way- until the 2nd table would be set.
The meal of ‘the law’ had a purpose, but until you find the 2nd meal- the 2nd covenant in His Blood- you will never be empowered for the long journey ahead.
It is the table of Grace that sustains us- it is this table that the Psalmist spoke about in the reading for this day.
God calls us to come- to taste- and to see- the goodness of the Lord.
And when we partake of that heavenly bread- we will be empowered to go the 2nd mile-
Matthew 5:38-48 New King James Version (NKJV)
Go the Second Mile
38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’ 39 But I tell you not to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. 40 If anyone wants to sue you and take away your tunic, let him have your cloak also. 41 And whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two.
2 Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes;3 For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.
