We read in, 1 Corinthians 10:2-5;
“They were all baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea. They all ate the same spiritual food and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that rock was Christ.”
The manna on which they fed was a type of Christ crucified, the Bread which came down from heaven, which whosoever eats shall live forever. Christ is the Rock on which the Christian church is built; and of the streams that issue there from, all believers drink, and are refreshed. It typified the sacred influences of the Holy Spirit, as given to believers through Christ.
Let’s read these two passages;
“Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth, 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 has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For My flesh is real food and My blood is real drink. Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood remains in Me, and I in him. Just as the living Father sent Me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on Me will live because of Me. This is the bread that came down from heaven. Your forefathers ate manna and died, but he who feeds on this bread will live forever.””
“Whoever believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him. By this he meant the Spirit, Whom those who believed in Him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.”
O Christ Jesus, You are the Rock on Which we stand!
