John 1:48-49 Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee. Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel. 



Luke 19:1 to 5

 And Jesus entered and passed through Jericho. And behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich. And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the press, because he was little of stature. And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see him; for he was to pass that way. And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house.


Luke 23:31 to 32 For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry? And there were also tow other, malefactors, led with him to be put to death. And when they were come to the place which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.


And now that I can full see

The value of the Cross at Calvary

Only through God’s loving grace

A tree of life I now can face


Beyond, beneath and in-between

The Lord Jesus

Different views are seen


Beyond the tree of visibility, Nathaniel sees a presence

Beneath the tree where Zacchaeus  climbed

The Lord’s flowing essence


And in between two malefactors

In the midst it stood

The finished work,

The tree of life, to believe if we would

Reference: John 6: 9, 10, 11, 12, 13

There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many? 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. 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. When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost. 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.

From Five Barley Loaves, and two small fishes, a multitude was fed

Twelve baskets left over as the bread from heaven was widely spread

Once everyone was fed and filled to the top

Twelve baskets of leftovers; salvation was my thought.

Israel was fed the Bread from Heaven for life

And the leftovers, to the Gentiles, God’s power and might

The leftovers from heaven, thy word forever pure

As we feed on God’s Word as His love will endure

The Bread of life, I am, He did speak

His word so filling, a harvest to reap

Dwell on the fulfilment, God’s food for us

The bread from heaven, His Word to trust.

Listen! Very important, and that’s right

Three key phrases as ministry meeting heard each and every night

The conformation of the scripture as the preacher spoke so clear

And the wrath of God without salvation is a fear

To only be saved and reap benefits of His chosen

Listen! Very important and that’s right

As the preacher’s words were spoken

Don’t take the preacher’s word

But weigh the word of God

That’s the authority

Scripture we can applaud

Listen! Very important and that’s right

Listen to the word of God

Confirm it here tonight.
