Only one thing is necessary for you, that you feed the soul, that you supply it with food which guarantees life to it because a dead soul in a body no matter how much joy of living is in it is your ruin when you have to give up earthly life. Read more:

Jesus says in John 6:54:

Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.

And then we hear that when many of his disciples heard this they murmured.

And in John 6:66 it is then said:

From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.

They did not earnestly study the word of God and let themselves be scared off from something what was merely a lack of understanding and they turned their back on God.

When one deals with spiritual words and with spiritual writings then one has to always expect to come across expressions, which describe something particular, but which is described in different writings in different terms and therefore concerns one and the same thing, but is just not everywhere reserved by the same expression.

In our case it is about the word flesh.

And in this case, in the Gospel of John, the word flesh is based on a meaning, which is explained in John 1:14:

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Jesus is the word and he became flesh so that he could stay among us as man, and this word we are to eat, with this word we are to deal intensively, that we chew it thoroughly and put it away and digest it.

It is about absorbing the word of God with our intellect and with our heart.

The consumption of physical food is therefore the occasion to come together and to deal with the word of God.

When the consumption of physical food stands in the centre, then communion has already become a kind of idolatry because the consumption of spiritual food has already moved into the background.

A message by Bertha Dudde follows:

 

Who eats my flesh.

28. March 1946. B.D. NR. 3728.

Connect yourselves with me in spirit and you will be able to draw out of the source of life; you will be able to satisfy yourselves with the bread of heaven; you will receive power and no longer have to starve despite earthly trouble because body and soul will be strengthened when you receive my word, the bread of heaven body and soul will live former as long as I have determined, but the latter in eternity. Only one thing is necessary for you, that you feed the soul, that you supply it with food which guarantees life to it because a dead soul in a body no matter how much joy of living is in it is your ruin when you have to give up earthly life; because a dead soul is powerless, but not without feeling, and it suffers immeasurable agonies in its dead state. That is why you are to create life for it; do not let it enter eternity in that dead state but take care that it lives and can be active in life in the hereafter, that it is full of power and therefore also happy. And the life of the soul requires a permanent supply of food, of spiritual food, so that it becomes powerful and can be active. Permanently I as donator of spiritual food offer you this and wait for your willingness to receive it; permanently I call you to communion to offer you my word, my flesh and my blood, to satisfy you with a food which guarantees eternal life to your soul and you are to follow my call; with a hungry heart you are to come and be fed and be given to drink by me; you are to be my guests whom I feed with everything what your soul needs to be able to live. You are not to despise my communion; you are not to pass it by and leave the food untouched which my love offers to you always and always you are to seek the connection with me and let yourselves be given presents, i.e. bear a desire for my present and receive it with thanks. Because I can give nothing to you when you desire nothing, because my food, the bread of heaven, is quite delicious and cannot be imparted to those who do not bear any desire for it. And that is why your heart must drive you towards me; you must seek union with me and ask me for food for your soul; fully consciously you have to step before me and want to receive communion, my word, which I offer to you in all love, which is spiritual food and spiritual drink which I bless with my power and which is therefore life giving for him who enjoys it in the desire for me and my love. And his desire will be satisfied and still always again and again drive him to me because who once has enjoyed my bread of heaven, who once has refreshed himself at the source of my love, he always returns again and again to it; he no longer can exist without the food for his soul; he will be a permanent guest at my table, and I will be able to serve him communion always and forever. And his soul will live; it has overcome death, and it can never sink back into the state of death because my food secures it eternal life as I have promised with the words: Who eats my flesh and drinks my blood, he has eternal life. Amen. B.D. NR. 3728.
