The apostle Malm is weighing in on the book of John right now adding his interpretation to scripture. The apostle is also ticked right now that UCG is considering not requiring members to eat unleavened bread every single day of the DUB (as if any of them ever did anyway.)
Jesus feeds five thousand with five pita rounds and two fishes [probably Galilee fish which were very small somewhat like herring].
John 6:8 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, saith unto him, 6:9 There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many? 6:10 And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.The apostle Malm interprets the above this way:
6:11 And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would. 6:12 When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.
6:13 Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten.
The people desired him to be their king because they desired the gift of physical food from him. Their eyes and minds were on the physical advantages and not on the doctrine that he taught.
Yet this physical demonstration was an allegory of how he would be the bread of Life to come and feed all nations with the unleavened bread of his doctrine; of the purity and total freedom from sin, of his very nature, and the nature of the Father and their teachings and commandments.
The eating of unleavened bread every day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread [ulb] pictures the elect internalizing the fullness of the purity from all sin, that is God the Father and Jesus Christ. To question the eating of ulb every day of that Feast, is rebellion against the command of Christ to eat ulb for seven full days; for such a question to be an issue with church leaders of decades service, is proof of a complete lack of zeal for the word of God and the commandments of scripture.
The mind of an Armstrongite is a terrible thing to waste.
