Manna

Exodus 16:15-18 And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one to another, It is manna: for they wist not what it was. And Moses said unto them, This is the bread which the LORD hath given you to eat. 16 This is the thing which the LORD hath commanded, Gather of it every man according to his eating, an omer for every man, according to the number of your persons; take ye every man for them which are in his tents. 17 And the children of Israel did so, and gathered, some more, some less. 18 And when they did mete it with an omer, he that gathered much had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no lack; they gathered every man according to his eating.

John 6:35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

Manna was a picture of the Lord Jesus Christ. Some men required more and some required less; Jesus is enough to meet every man’s need. He is enough to sustain us on our journey through this wilderness until we come to the Promised Land.

Exodus 16:27 And it came to pass, that there went out some of the people on the seventh day for to gather, and they found none.

God commanded them to gather two day’s worth of manna on the sixth day. Those who did not and went out looking on the seventh day found none. There is coming a day when men shall seek the Lord but it will be too late. God is offering salvation today. Today is the day of salvation. Do not think that you will be able to seek him when you are ready to seek him. You may find that you are too late.
