 2 Why do you spend money for that which is not bread? And your hard-earned money for that which does not satisfy? Listen diligently to me, and eat that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in abundance.1 [Note! To listen is to eat the bread of life, who is Jesus; his words that he speaks to you impart the life of God.]

1 Come all who hunger and thirst for righteousness; the Lord's deliverance is without charge. Why do you pay your preachers to read you the dead letter of the Bible, who speak from their own evil imaginations and words from the nature of death with their carnal minds, which are enmity with God? Come and obtain real bread from the Spirit that gives life. Stop toiling and doing and producing for the food that perishes and decomposes, but strive and work and produce rather for the food which endures unto life eternal; the Son of Man will give (furnish) you that, for God the Father has authorized and certified Him and put His seal of endorsement upon Him. To acquire more of the Holy Spirit, more truth, more life, more of Jesus, you must get quiet, wait on Him, listen, hear, and obey. It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life-giving. John 6:63. To buy bread, means to acquire the bread of life, what gives life, the Spirit of Christ: I am the Bread of Life. He who comes to me shall never hunger; and he who believes on me shall never thirst, John 6:35; this is the Bread that came down from heaven, so that a man may eat of it, and not die. John 6:50.

Look at the next verse(3) : Incline your ear, and come to me. Hear [and obey], and your soul shall live.

In Revelation 13:17, those without the mark of the beast could not buy or sell. In the Middle Ages (800 to 1500 AD), anyone who had not gone to Catholic mass and taken the Eucharist in the last 90 days was killed in the Inquisition; 9,000,000 million souls were tortured to death. They could not acquire, (buy or sell), more of the Holy Spirit, or worship God in any way other than the Catholic way — and those who saw the evil of that horrible system were murdered. If you read the full link, you will see where the Catholics' ruthless methods of finding heretics makes the Nazi Gestapo look like amateurs.

From the Word of the Lord within:
"It might be seen that any man who was out of compliance or
conformance with the Catholic church was killed."
