What is a cake ? There is a variety of different types of cakes.
Chocolate cake, bababa cake, sponge cake, fruit cake, and the lost goes on and on and on. There literally hundredsto thousands of different types of cakes.
There is a variety of different ingredients, banana, chocolate, vanilla, ornge, sultanas, jam, and the list goes on and on.
There are so many different types of cakes and ingredients. Yet there is basically 3 main ingredients. Flour, water and egg.
Flour, water and egg are the main ingredients of most cakes. And without any of them 3 ingredients you don’t have a cake.
And like a cake we have our heavenly Father, Yahshua (Jesus ) his son, and the Holy Spirit.
In the book of John chapter 17 we read
18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
Notice in verse 21 that our messiah prays for us to be one with one another as he is one with the father, that we all be one with our heavenly father and one with our messiah. Just like a cake, the main ingredients flour water and egg, so is the father son and holy spirit, and us are the many different ingredients to make a variety of different types of cakes, we are all together one cake with variety of different flavours through the various different ingredients.
Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
Tase the cake, eatnof the cake and know that the lord is good, taste and see that the cake of our god is good.
There are different types of cakes with different ingredients for different flavours for different situations.
Just like when Paul said in
1 Corinthians 9
19 For though I am free from all men, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win the more; 20 and to the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might win Jews; to those who are under the law, as under the law,a]” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; vertical-align: top; top: 0px;”>[a] that I might win those who areunder the law; 21 to those who are without law, as without law (not being without law toward God,b]” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; vertical-align: top; top: 0px;”>[b] but under law toward Christc]” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; vertical-align: top; top: 0px;”>[c]), that I might win those who arewithout law; 22 to the weak I became asd]” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; vertical-align: top; top: 0px;”>[d] weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. 23 Now this I do for the gospel’s sake, that I may be partaker of it with you.
He became all things in the hope he may win some for gods kingdom, became like the people he was around innorder to relay the message of salvation to those who he was around.
Likewise the cake has many different types of cakes flavoursnand textures and colours, the main ingredients arenflour, water and egg, like the Heavenly Father, the Saviour Son, and the Holy Spirit. And we all the different ingredients mixed perfectly together as one in the cake, the flour and water and egg and vinilla essence, banana, chocolate and all the other different ingredients perfectly mixed together as one substance to make the paste that makes a cake.
Then the cake goes into the oven and then comes the heat which cooks the ingredients to make the cake. The heat surrounds the cake mixture. All out trials and troubles and tribulations. They all surround us and effects us.
As it says in Romans 5
3 And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; 4 and perseverance, character; and character, hope.
The heat refines us with god through our saviour, given with the holy spirit that leads us into all truth, we become moulded and refines through thenoven with god to become the perfect cake.
So much so that you can not separate the ingredients of the cake, for which part is the flour, which part is the water, unable to separate the part of the cake that is the banana or the vinailla essence. They have all become one, unseparatable.
Likewise this is what our saviour prayed for us, that we all be one together. The father, the son, the holynspirit, you, me, and all people, may we all be in unity and one with one another and all people.
Though you notice what he said in John 17:33
