 Matthew 4:1-4

King James Version

4 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness 

to be tempted of the devil.

2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, 

he was afterward an hungred.

3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, 

If thou be the Son of God, 

command that these stones be made bread.

4 But he answered and said, 

It is written, 

Man shall not live by bread alone, 

but by every word 

that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

What is a born again fast?

First, we'll tell you what we live on:

We live, by the WORD of GOD.

We live, by the Bible.

We live, to glorify GOD.

We are not crazed with food.

We eat simple, nourishing food.

We eat to live.

We don't live to eat.

We don't cook to impress.

You won't find us going crazy over recipes.

Or celebrations, feasts, and events.

Neither with any excuse to party.

The fast we have?

We aspire for the "freedom fast":

Isaiah 58:6

King James Version

6 Is not this the fast that I have chosen? 

to loose the bands of wickedness, 

to undo the heavy burdens, 

and to let the oppressed go free, 

and that ye break every yoke?

We also fast from misleading world news.

Or from the boast of the proud, and the elite.

Or from the lies we are being fed.

The only thing we trust is the WORD of GOD.

JESUS told us not to live "by bread alone".

This is the verse, from Moses, the LORD was referring to:

Deuteronomy 8:2-3

King James Version

2 And thou shalt remember all the way 

which the Lord thy God led thee 

these forty years in the wilderness, 

to humble thee, 

and to prove thee, 

to know what was in thine heart, 

whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, 

or no.

3 And he humbled thee, 

and suffered thee to hunger, 

and fed thee with manna, 

which thou knewest not, 

neither did thy fathers know; 

that he might make thee know 

that man doth not live by bread only, 

but by every word that proceedeth 

out of the mouth of the Lord doth man live.

We are grateful for every blessing.

We are grateful for food on the plate.

No matter how spare, or simple, it would be.

We think of others in the world, who have no food.

That's why we don't waste food.

We thirst for the WORD of GOD.

We drink from the LORD's fountain.

We thirst for eternal life.

We thirst for the promises of CHRIST.

We have no affinity for the ways of the world.

 Luke 16:15

King James Version

15 And he said unto them, 

Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; 

but God knoweth your hearts: 

for that which is highly esteemed among men 

is abomination in the sight of God.

We live for JESUS.

We abide by His law.

Luke 12:29-31

King James Version

29 And seek not ye what ye shall eat, 

or what ye shall drink, 

neither be ye of doubtful mind.

30 For all these things 

do the nations of the world seek after: 

and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.

31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; 

and all these things shall be added unto you.

We wait to meet the LORD up in the air.

The very reason we share the WORD with you.

We call your attention to the imminence of the Rapture:

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

King James Version

16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven 

with a shout, 

with the voice of the archangel, 

and with the trump of God: 

and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

17 Then we which are alive and remain 

shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, 

to meet the Lord in the air: 

and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

We are not stuck on steak.

We are not filled by filet mignon.

We teach everyone to be grateful, for every blessing.

James 1:17

King James Version

17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, 

and cometh down from the Father of lights, 

with whom is no variableness, 

neither shadow of turning.

We aspire to eat, and live sparingly, by choice. 

That our minds, hearts, and bodies would be clear.

We have so much to learn.

But we'll get there.

Every day is a step towards CHRIST.

We live by faith.

We know GOD knows what we need.

And we trust in that.

Matthew 6:32

King James Version

32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) 

for your heavenly Father knoweth 

that ye have need of all these things.

Our peace is in CHRIST.
