How to get the most out of Hungry Bible


31:19-24 “And all of you who have killed anyone or touched a dead body must stay outside the camp for seven days. You must purify yourselves and your captives on the third and seventh days. Also, purify all your clothing and everything made of leather, goat hair, or wood.” Then Eleazar the priest said to the men who were in the battle, “The LORD has given Moses this requirement of the law: Anything made of gold, silver, bronze, iron, tin, or lead– that is, metals that do not burn–must be passed through fire in order to be made ceremonially pure. These metal objects must then be further purified with the water of purification. But everything that burns must be purified by the water alone. On the seventh day you must wash your clothes and be purified. Then you may return to the camp.”


4:9 “Anyone who is willing to hear should listen and understand!”

:11 He replied, “You are permitted to understand the secret about the Kingdom of God. But I am using these stories to conceal everything about it from outsiders.”

5:19 But Jesus said, “No, go home to your friends, and tell them what wonderful things the Lord has done for you and how merciful he has been.”

6:37 But Jesus said, “You feed them.” “With what?” they asked. “It would take a small fortune to buy food for all this crowd!”

We lose vision by spiritual leakage
Run your belief into the practical issues of every moment and wait for it
God sows His saints by His whirlwind
Do not go until He flings you out and don’t be an empty pod
Walk with your feet in the light of the vision
