Yes indeed, God was on my side, and was ready to tell me the truth, but was I ready to hear it? Of course I was since I had fervently prayed for it. My wife and I had agreed to disagree, but there was a slight clash about each other's faith, nothing detrimental, just some uneasiness. Our Lord was more than willing to end the dissension. So here is the word I received from God that set me straight right real quick and in a hurry. Ready for this?......."I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat this bread, he shall live forever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh,which I will give for the life of the world." John 6:51
The Jews were like" WHAT?" .."Verily Verily I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood. ye have NO life in you.Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even shall live by me. This is the bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever." John 6:53-58. AMEN! Verse 66 goes on to say " from that time on many of his disciples went back and walked no more with him." Yesiree, THAT is what did it! I certainly was NOT going back, I wanted to walk hand in hand with Him as He has asked me to do. The Eucharist He had established, and so I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt the TRUTH had been dumped right into my lap! Could Jesus have been any clearer than this? No way! After all, when Jesus saw those who chose to leave, he never exclaimed "WAIT! COME BACK! I WAS JUST KIDDING!".
The truth you see, is given to us all, when we so choose to listen. About 6 or so months later I was confirmed in the Catholic church, and definitely had no qualms about it in the least. I decided not to be one of those who had walked away after Jesus rendered the truth. This also is the chapter in the bible that isn't taken literally by other faiths. By far the most important in my eyes. ( I took the bait and Jesus "set the hook")
