Fresh Bread: “It’s a Tipping Point Moment”

Last week, a friend left fresh, home-baked bread on our doorstep.
It was a lovely gift, and an unusual one!
I can’t remember this ever happening to us before.

As that fresh loaf of bread sat on our kitchen counter, I remembered a prophetic word I shared with a church, just a few days earlier.

“God has fresh bread for you. There is bread in the ‘House of Bread’ again.

It’s a tipping point moment!”

Through that gift of bread, I heard the Holy Spirit say, “Pay attention! This message is still live!” [1]


The Tipping Point of the Kingdom

Fresh Bread: It's a Tipping Point MomentIf you feel hidden right now, know that you are hidden with a purpose.
God is at work! He is doing something supernatural, and what will emerge is miraculous.

Jesus spoke a remarkable parable that spoke of this:

“The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed into about sixty pounds of flour until it worked all through the dough.” (Matt 13:33, NIV)

  • The Greek word translated “mixed” or “hid”, enkrypto (G1470) means “concealed”.

In this parable (just as in Jesus’ preceding parable of the mustard seed)  we have something that starts small.
It is sown into invisibility.
But it has power—it has the capacity to grow and become great.

And then comes the tipping point moment!
That which has been hidden is revealed.
Growth, which has been concealed, becomes noticeable.

The Kingdom Paradox

“Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin…” (Zech 4:10a, NLT)

Jesus’ use of yeast as a metaphor here is offbeat!
It stands out.
Yeast, or leaven, consistently symbolises evil in the Bible! [2] And yet, in this one place, Jesus likens the Kingdom to leaven.

Why? Jesus is speaking of the paradox of the Kingdom.

God’s word, and work, may have small beginnings—but like the yeast, the very nature of the Kingdom’s DNA is to multiply and grow.


The House of Bread

There are times when the outcome of a word from God seems to be held up.
That word may be hidden, but like the yeast, or the mustard seed, it is alive, and active.

Take Bethlehem, for example.
The name ‘Bethlehem’ means “House of Bread,” and the town’s original name, Ephrathah means fruitful, or fertile. [3]

Yet for a short season, as the book of Ruth opened, there was no bread in the “House of Bread.” There was a famine in the place that was named “fruitful.”
It was a contradiction.

Perhaps you can relate to that today.
“God, you gave me a dream, a destiny, a calling! I had a prophetic word, an encounter with You, a Scripture.
And yet right now, it seems as though the opposite is taking place!
I am living in a contradiction!”


The Launching Place of Destiny

This is what I believe the Lord is highlighting to us right now:
Throughout that long period of famine, whenever anyone said the name, “Bethlehem”, they were prophesying.
“House of bread…House of Bread!”

Now is a time to prophesy a word of God’s goodness over your life, church, family and region.
To remember the promises and words of the past.
Declare them again, in the face of everything that says otherwise.

For God’s word, His promise to you holds power!
Though for a season it’s reality may be hidden, it is alive and at work. And what God has declared will come to pass.

And there came a day a woman called Naomi “heard in the country of Moab that the Lord had visited His people by giving them bread” (Ruth 1:6b, NKJV)

It was a tipping point moment.

If you can relate to this story, know that in your situation, God’s word—His Kingdom—is at work.

And just as happened with Naomi, the place of loss will become the launching place of destiny.


Victory will Emerge

What does “fresh bread” mean for you today?
It may be supply, comfort, freedom or healing.
It could be the reawakening of a promise.
Or a word of destiny.

I love that the name of our State in Australia is Victoria. The name means “victory”. Conqueror.

Yet right now, we are struggling. Covid-19 has brought sudden loss and hardship.
But I believe that no matter what we are going through right now,
Victory is going through it, and victory will emerge.

“Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.” (Rom 8:37, NKJV)

So, call out what He has declared.
For as you do, it’s a tipping point moment.

This is the time of fresh bread.

[2] E.g., leaven is seen as a symbol of: Hypocrisy (Luke 12:1), Malice and wickedness (1 Cor 5:8), False teaching (Gal 5:9)
Also see OT—leaven forbidden from Passover and holy offerings.

[3] In the Bible, a God-given name speaks to identity and destiny. “House of Bread,” was not only descriptive, it was also prophetic. Bethlehem was to be a place of Divine destiny—the future birthplace of King David, and of Jesus Christ; one of whose names is, “The Bread of Life.”

    This is quite an eye-opener. It reminds me of the complete work of the cross. It might not look like it at times but “It is finished! Consummatum est! Tetelestai” Jesus word is final. If He says there is bread even when it appears not like it, just believe there is. Thanks Helen Calder for the message.

    Helen,
    I am such a fan of your ministry and am grateful to God for your gifting and teachings.
    I had an anointing and have gifts from the Holy Spirit in the Revelatory Category-but am not sure exactly
    what I have. This hinders me in training and research. Are you able to assist?

    Thank you for your time.
    God Bless,
    Christina
