5. HAB LAN LAHAMO DSUNK-QO-NAN YAW-MO-NO Give us this day our
We just prayed that God’s
will be done on earth. God’s will is that we are all saved and become the
children of God the Father as the siblings of Jesus.
Lahamo= regular bread
Is this daily bread or daily food?
After the Holy Qurbana, in the final benediction achen says "the
thanneerkudykal and vazhyaharangal", the drinking water and the bread for
journey. The bread to save us from perishing in our daily journey and for
eternity. In the Passover service song "rahasyam rahasyam" we sing
"jnganam paninga gehathilullor thinnu kudikunnaharam ithuthan" (this
is the food and drink of the ones who dwells in the house that is built by
Wisdom (God’s wisdom = Holy Spirit, the house is the church in this world and
heaven in eternity = New Jerusalem). Again we sing "Thathaniruthum mesakai
parikarmikum suthan" God the Son will serve in the banquet hosted by God
What is this food? What is this banquet?
It is the love of God the Father read in John 3:16. "For God so loved the
world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should
not perish but have everlasting life"
What is the highest imaginable degree of love? I would say, Giving up oneself
as a sacrifice. God the Father’s love is beyond my imagination. Here, the
mightiest of all was pleased that His only begotten Son be crushed and the
flesh scattered by whipping so that each one of us get a piece of His Flesh as
our bread for life.
Jesus said so in John 6: 48-58.
This is not Manna. Manna was daily food for journey in the wilderness. It
stopped. This is everlasting. This is Father’s ultimate love, divine mercy for
all humanity. When the body (flesh and blood) of God’s only begotten Son is
within us we become the adopted sons of God the Father. We become Christ
When we make the bread for Qurbana, we mix a bit of the old dough with the new,
Because, God the Son is the Word God who includes the Old Testament and New
Wine and water equally, Why?
Because; Blood and water oozed out of the side of God the son when it was
pierced to give me life. Because; God the Son is humanity and divinity
in full mixed inseparably.
Is it too hard for you or Do you believe and confess or are you number
"666"? You are not alone. There are millions of so called super
christians like you. Even from the time of Jesus. Yes, John 6:66 says so.
"From that time many of His disciples went back and walked with Him no
John 6; 48 - 58
" I am the bread of life. Your fathers ate manna in the wilderness, and
are dead. This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of
it and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone
eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My
flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world." The Jews therefore
quarreled among themselves, saying, "How can this Man give us His flesh to
eat?" Then Jesus said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless
you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in
you. Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood will have eternal life, and I
will raise him up at the last day. For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is
drink indeed. He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in
him. As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who
feeds on Me will live because of Me. This is the bread
which came down from heaven—not as your fathers ate the manna, and are dead. He
who eats this bread will live forever."
