Prophetic Word: Fresh Bread and a New Sound

“I am feeding you fresh bread—and from that food will come forth your new sound”.

Prophetic Word, Fresh Bread, New SoundA few days ago, I had an impression of a brand-new guitar string being tuned. In that instant I knew it was the Holy Spirit breaking into my thoughts.

I saw the tuning peg turning, bringing that string into tension and alignment. It was becoming ready to play a new sound!

Then suddenly, I remembered a long-forgotten incident.

“There’s Wire in the Bread!”

It happened in the 1990’s.

One day, I picked up a bread loaf, and was removing a slice to feed our children, when I noticed something odd.
A wire was threaded through some of the pieces of bread.
How hazardous!

So, I reported it to the bread manufacturer, who quickly took away the remaining loaf and wire, to test it.
They later reported that the wire was a guitar string. The company was mystified as to how that wire could have gotten into the bread.

I remember that around that time, my husband Malcolm had replaced his own guitar strings. And I wondered if a piece of his string had inexplicably become threaded through our loaf of bread.
Yet, the wire in the loaf was as though it had been baked in there.

Now 20 years later, the Holy Spirit was bringing this forgotten memory back to mind.

Suddenly, I heard the Father say, “I am feeding you fresh bread and from that food will come forth your new sound”

“You are About to Receive a Supernatural Supply”

This is a word that is going to resonate with many today! I believe it is on the Father’s heart right now, to bring strength and comfort, especially to those who are weary.

He says, “I have fresh bread for you!” You can anticipate receiving:

  • Fresh insights from Scripture that will not only be food to your soul—they will be a supply from which you will feed many others
  • Life-giving, personal encounters with God with a renewed sense of commissioning.

He says, “I have a new sound for you!”

When a guitar’s strings need replacing, they sound dull and flat. But with new strings, the sound is bright, clear and renewed.

Your new sound is about to break forth!

3 Bible Stories in Which a New Sound was Released with Fresh Bread!

1. Fresh Bread in the Place of Hardship and Loss

The name Bethlehem means “house of bread”. Yet in the book of Ruth, we learn of a time in which the township experienced famine.

When God visited them with harvest, there was fresh bread in the “house of bread” again! As a result, a sound went out. That testimony of God’s goodness reached the ears of a grieving widow called Naomi.

“Then she arose with her daughters-in-law that she might return from the country of Moab, for she had heard in the country of Moab that the LORD had visited His people by giving them bread.
(Ruth 1:6 NKJV)

When that sound reached Naomi, she set out on a journey with her daughter-in-law Ruth. It was time for their destiny to unfold.

2. Fresh Bread in the Place of Exhaustion and Spiritual Warfare

Elijah was on the run from wicked Jezebel and her threats. It was a low time in Elijah’s life, and he was completely exhausted.
But a miracle was about to happen.

God sent an angel to give him freshly baked hot bread and drink.

‘All at once an angel touched him and said, “Get up and eat.” He looked around, and there by his head was some bread baked over hot coals, and a jar of water. He ate and drank and then lay down again.’ (1 Kings 19:5-6, NIV)

At one of his lowest points, God gave the prophet Elijah supernatural strength and replenishment.

From there, Elijah ran 40 days and nights to a place of appointment with God.
There at Mount Horeb, sheltered in a cave, Elijah heard the sound of God—whispering his new commission.

3. Fresh Bread in the Place of Failure

It was after the resurrection and the disciples had already encountered their risen Lord! Yet there was still something lacking for Peter.
Some unfinished business.

Peter may have been still uncertain as to his future direction, after his denial of Jesus at the crucifixion.

And in a moment—perhaps of restlessness—Peter called on some other disciples to go fishing with him. (John 21)

It was a long weary night, with no fish to be found. Until a man on the shoreline called out, “cast your net over the right side of the boat and you will find some.”

Struggling with a multitude of fish now filling their net, they realized Jesus was the man.
He was waiting with bread, and had fish already cooking!

Over fresh bread and fish, Jesus restored Peter and gave him his new commissioning.

And Peter heard the words, “Feed my lambs…Tend my sheep…Feed my sheep…Follow me.”

Fresh bread. A supernatural harvest. Redemption. And a new sound.

Peter was about to rise into his apostleship.

Your Father has “Fresh Bread” for You

Some of you have been wondering if you are ‘wrong’ in some way, but your Father wants you to know, “I am with you!”

And if you can relate to any of the above scenarios today, be encouraged: your Heavenly Father has fresh bread for you.

He also has a new sound.

Your life is, and will be, a testimony of His redeeming power. Lift up your eyes and see Jesus with fresh bread from Heaven.

    Hi Helen every time you send an email it’s always at the right moment just when I needed it. Here I must say I am a worship leader for my church and I play the guitar and just when am about to have some questions about my calling and gifting the Holy Spirit reassures me that all will be well just because of your email.
    You see I have recently started on my second album name Fire and my music producer and I have had number of attack against us from the time the Fire Project started and tonight all I needed was just one word during intercession service to help me understand why do I struggle in the area of finance and so a deep thought came to my mind and it was Mel I have called you to be wealthy. Be successful be prosperous. I was born to be rich to be a millionaire in His Kingdom so must not settle for less and so I had to talk to my Pastor my struggle concerning unbelief and by the time she done pray for me i was able to receive that fresh word starting from Last night that God made me to have great wealth as a woman of God in His Kingdom so when I read your email I know this word is more than for me. It’s my purpose my calling and I receive this fresh revelation over my life and my music business.
    I will leave this with you
    In my country music doesn’t make money. It doesn’t make you wealthy so nobody do it for a living but God gave me a word that this is my word from Him this early morning 1:06 am.
    And to God I give all that glory to Helen.
    Thank you so much for your email.
    I receive it by faith and will walk it out one day at a time in Jesus mighty name.
    Love you Helen and team.
    Love Mel

      Looking forward to see ahead of just what s in front of me.
      Again thank you and I thank God for you.

  2. Naomi Testimony

    You’re always timely on every word you release Helen. I am your number 1 fan on email and Twitter. Sometimes I wonder, is it possible to be getting the messages once a week but I believe you do as you are led by the Holy spirit which is great.
    Mine is to pray that you have long healthy years so that you minister to several generations.
    Best wishes to you, your husband, your children and your ministry.
    Much love from Nairobi, Kenya to your home in Melbourne, Australia.

      Thank you so, so much Naomi (and I’ve written about Naomi’s testimony today :-))
      Yes I recognize your name from Twitter. Praying with you right now… fresh bread and new sound

        Thank you Helen for the prayers.

  3. Teresia

    This is so Timely. May God bless you Helen for this great ministry. Recently I have been having spiritual warfare. And the Lord came through for me. I know I have a gift of prophetic intercessory of which I have been afraid to step out. Until I read your e-book. It propelled me to be obedient to the Word of the God and prayer. This week the Lord has been assuring me that it is my time now to arise. I opened this and the message is definitely for me.
    I am ready to receive my Supernatural Supply in Jesus Mighty Name!
    I am receiving Fresh Bread Now.
    God bless you
    TERESIA WAITHIRA from Nairobi, Kenya

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      Yes amen to that Teresia! It’s time to arise and to shine. The ministry of prophetic intercession is one close to the heart of the Father and so are His sons and daughters who share the burdens and royal authority with Him in prayer. May you continue to be released and flow in your gift

  6. Laura K

    Your message is sooo spot on and felt like it was just only for me.Glad though that it has resonated with many from all over the world including my hometown ,Nairobi!!!
    The fresh bread and fresh insights from the word hit me smack in the heart as its exactly what I’m going through,seeing some scripture as if I’m seeing them for the very first time in my entire life! Interestingly ,my guitar strings snapped months ago ,thought I could still play some songs with the few good strings left ,but to my dismay it sounds completely off and its made me soo blue(I’m an amateur guitarist by the way). I had purposed to have it fixed today ,but forgot it at home …then I see your message!!!
    Thank you for sharing this ,may Lord continue to bless you and increase you!

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      Wow Laura, that’s so amazing! I pray Jesus continues to break open His Word to you, just as He broke bread in the story of the disciples on the road to Emmaus (Luke 24) and their eyes were opened, may it be so for you, fresh revelation (there’s another ‘bread’ story in Scripture <3


    I say, AMEN to this word. Thank you, Helen for always leaning to the heart on the FATHER. All 3 instances of fresh bread describe me at the moment. God bless you real good


    1. Helen Calder Post author

      I’m glad it was meaningful to you Eno! Let it be, Lord. Fresh bread and a new sound.

  8. Elizabeth Nimako

    Thank you very much Helen, I am battling with an autistic child, myself with bipolar disorder and financial problems. I know that God sees all my problems but my faith goes down when answers are not coming.

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      I am so sorry to hear of those challenges, Elizabeth! I pray you receive a rich download of his grace and joy in the midst of your journey. Psalm 84 comes to mind for you. <3

  9. Lucinda Perry

    Hello Hellen ,
    I thank my Heavenly Father for allowing you to minister to my spirit man, your words of encouragement is a lifting to my soul. I can’t wait to see your emails.

  10. Cynthia Johnson

    Good morning woman of the most High God!
    Thank you for this timely word of encouragement. My husband and I has been battling much warfare, slaying every giant in the Spirit realm. I want you to know that this word resonated my Spirit this morning. I had a dream a few years ago that my hallway in my home had flooded in the another dream, our dishwasher flooded the kitchen area. April 15th Of this year, we had a leak detector specialist to find the leak in our hallway. So he repaired the leak 6 days later another leak occurred and found in my kitchen in front of the kitchen sink and dishwasher area. I have been speaking over our lives and situation. That there Shall be No More Lack. According to 2 Kings 4:3-7 I have been faithful, My Father has blessed us in the Overflow of blessings beyond measure. Glory be God, and may God Richly Bless you and your family. Prophet Cynthia Johnson, from the Great Country Of America,

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      Wow, we are learning also to pay attention to remarkable coincidences and timings. Amen to no more lack, Prophet Cynthia. And that you are positioned and open and available with many vessels to receive his overflow!

  11. Dr.Kobena Wiredu

    Helen,God bless you and your Prophetic Ministry.The words you send to us are indeed Holy Spirit led.Just after reading your message close to my afternoon prayer hour,I got into my closet to pray and the Lord showed me what looked like massive volumes of water being poured down from above.I immediately knew that my destiny had unfolded.
    You are a blessing!I now know why you don’t send regular messages;you send as and when directed by Elohim.
    My life and the lives of all others who read these words will be filled with fresh bread and new sound from now in Jesus name.

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      Amen to all of that, Dr. Kobena, and thanks! May this be your experience:
      Isaiah 44:3 NIV
      [3] For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring, and my blessing on your descendants.

  12. Audrey

    Thanking God again for His goodness. I had a dream a week ago about many mantles so I decided to look up some information and I came upon your blog. What a blessing to me and confirmation of some things God had already revealed. Now at a time when I am feeling burned out and weary about my life and health, the Lord sends you with this word. I am encouraged today and look forward to receiving fresh bread and a new sound from heaven. Thank you and God bless you!

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      Amen to you receiving fresh bread and the new sound, Audrey!
      We used to have a breadmaker appliance in our kitchen and when it was baking the bread the smell would fill the house. I pray it will be like this for you right now with a sense of the fragrance and aroma of God’s presence all around you.

  13. Raha

    Thank you Helen for allowing God to use you to touch the lives of His children. I have been wearied from a long journey of waiting and seeking healing from God. He has been painstakingly releasing me from past wounds and an addiction I never thought I would be free from. But oh how great is the Lord in His redeeming power. He has called me to a ministry of healing and deliverance but I have been wondering if I am worthy to share my story and how He continues to redeem me. This word encourages me to believe He can and will use me to bring the same hope to others.

    Be mightily blessed. Raha from Nairobi, Kenya.

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      Yes Raha, how wonderful is His favor and abundant His grace towards you. Amen to that.
      Isaiah 61:1 NIV
      [1] The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
      because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners,

  14. Lauren

    Funny this came today. I started taking guitar lessons this past Tuesday. I was learning how to tune. Two days following ( last night) I became discouraged about life and where God is. We are struggling to buy a home and had many failed pregnancies these past 5 years. I’m now 45 and feeling hopeless. I’m a health nut and this doesn’t seem to help me mentally or physically because of my depression and panic disorder. I’m hoping that taking up guitar will help me to focus on something other than my failures. I love music. I played as a kid violin and xylophone, but guitar and piano is what I always wanted to play. We just couldn’t afford lessons when I was young. My dad being a struggling piano salesman on top of it. He studied at Juilliard in Manhattan but still didn’t have it in him to teach me due to his own depression. I was forced to take up anything my local grammar schools offered for free.
    I almost gave up on prayer last night but asked for forgiveness instead. This email of yours came this morning and right away I felt it was God telling me not to let go. It gave me some perspective on who God is and that trusting during the wait is everything. I struggle with that since I’m stuck mentally at times which then snowballs into discouragement. Thank you for reaching out all the way from the other side of the world.

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      Hi Lauren, I love it when God breaks into our story with His new story. I believe He is doing this for you, He is revealing the story He already has for your life and you will see past present and future overlaid with gold and glory – His favor delight and purpose

  15. Juleen DuBois

    I love this word today! Thank you for the encouragement. I am one of the weary ones you said you felt like the word was for. My husband has been without a job for a very, very, very long time and it has heavily weighed on both of us. I’ve been the “bread winner” so to speak. It’s funny…. when I typed “bread winner” I didn’t think about that tying right along with what you are saying about the Father having fresh bread. I believe that He is going to have fresh “bread” in the form of a new job opportunity for my husband very soon! He is going to redeem this past season. He is going to bring new provision. It will be fresh bread in the place of loss and exhaustion. Thank you, Jesus!

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      Hi Juleen, yes and amen to that! I am agreeing with you in Prayer right now for fresh bread and more, a bread winning role from Heaven.

  16. Hilda

    Greetings Helen.I’M also one of the people who have been through trials and tribulations.It was prophesied to me these past monday that my levels are about to change and very fast.A MAN of God phophesied further,he said that he saw me being prosperous and flying like an eagle.YOUR post is a confirmation of what he told me.THANK YOU HELEN SO VERY MUCH FOR EACH AN EVERY POST.I ALSO THANK GOD FOR USING YOU SO MIGHTILY IN OUR LIVES.YOU REALLY ARE THE SALT OF THE WORLD.I’VE DECIDED TO GO WITH GODS WILL FOR MY LIFE,EVEN THOUGH IT’S NOT EASY FOR ME AT ALL.I BELIEVE THAT GOD WILL NEVER LEAVE ME NOR FORSAKE ME WHEREVER HE’S TAKING ME.HE’S PROMISES ARE ABOUT TO COME TO PASS IN MY LIFE.MAY GOD RICHLY BLESS YOU, YOUR WHOLE FAMILY,YOUR MINISTRY AND YOUR BLOG.THANK YOU.

  17. Cassandra

    Hi Helen, I found your blog when I was looking up how to tell if you are called to be a phophet and I must say I thank God that he lead me to you. I was pretending to play my ex-boyfriends guitar 2 weeks ago and sent him a video of a song that him and I use to listen too. I have been heart broken because he left me. As I went to listen to your email again, A old prophecy seemed to just pop in my head. I lost my eye sight after giving birth to my son years ago when I was age 18. He is now 29 and I got a few prophecies over the years that I was called to be a prophet to the nations and I always had propheticdreams that always came true about others lives and some about things in family and friends. The prophecy that just entered my head was what a prophet told me was,”I see a string coming into play, not only will your eyes be healed, but God is going to release you from heartache and agony.”The holyspirit just put that word that I received right as I was listening to your Blog again. I have been so depressed over all of these years and now since I have been listening to your blogs and teachings I have been getting hope again and started back praying for my eyes to be totally healed. Thank you so much for being genuine to everyone because over the years and still til this day some sorry to say some people at church don’t see others gifts and all I was considered as the blind lady. People try to label you and think because I have a vision problem that I don’t have a calling on my life and will not use me in the church and its been like that for along time but I believe that God is showing me these things so when I do get my sight back , he is now helping me to see the way things really are about how a lot of churches are not using there spiritual gifts and healing and deliverance is not going forth in a lot of churches like Jesus said, even greater things shall we do”, but the Bible says the least shall be the greatest. We as the body of Christ need to do what Jesus said we can do because it is a lot of people who need to be save, healed and delivered and set free but have been sitting and hoping for years in the church and not getting what they need. Because of ministries like yours, I know now that I can be set free and I hope and pray that there will be a revival with all of God’s people that we will go forth and do the perfect will of God. God bless you Helen and I thank God for sending you to me.

  18. KALU AJA

    Thank you Helen for your timely message. I am at this point in my spiritual journey where I am asking for a deeper relationship with the Holy Spirit and a fresh out pouring of the spirit on my life. Trusting to get there.

  19. Moses

    Hi Helen. Always your word has been spot on for me and relates with what am going through. To say the least, God has spoken through you during this nasty wildernesses time. I can say that this season has been the worst period and yet spiritually rewarding moment of my life. You are my prophet in my wilderness until I exit safely. You don’t know how your words have helped me here in Kenya !!!

    To let you know the weight of your prophetic words, several times Ive wanted to end my own life but your email pops in right on time with specific words for me!!!

    God bless!!

    Helen, your teaching inspires and encourages me each time, which explains why I’m delighted whenever I see a new post in my box. This comes with gratitude to God for raising you up as His prophet and with joy at the work He continues through the ministry there. I send this with prayers for His blessing upon you and your family, His protection, and His guidance as you seek His face and His messages for us.
    In Christ–
