Their Eyes Were Opened

"It was as He reclined at the table with them that He took the bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them. Then their eyes were opened, and they recognized Him, but He disappeared from their sight. So they said to each other, “Weren’t our hearts ablaze within us while He was talking with us on the road and explaining the Scriptures to us? ” That very hour they got up and returned to Jerusalem. They found the Eleven and those with them gathered together, who said, “The Lord has certainly been raised, and has appeared to Simon! ” Then they began to describe what had happened on the road and how He was made known to them in the breaking of the bread.”

‭‭Luke‬ ‭24‬:‭30‬-‭35‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

I was recently meditating on the above verses. After reading the verses, I began to pray in the spirit and I heard:

“An exchange happens at the Table of Shewbread. We move into complete union“.

I carefully wrote exactly what I had heard on the page of my journal. After a period of stillness, i did some research.

Shewbread literally means "bread of the face" or "faces."

According to Bible Hub:

“The title "bread of the face" seems to indicate that bread through which God is seen, that is, with the participation of which the seeing of God is bound up, or through the participation of which man attains the sight of God whence it follows that we have not to think of bread merely as such as the means of nourishing the bodily life, but as spiritual food as a means of appropriating and retaining that life which consists In seeing the face of God”

The word table found in scripture is the Hebrew word shulchan.

“What makes the shulchan even more interesting is that its verbal root is shalach (שלח). This is the common Hebrew word meaning to send forth. The word shalach is translated in the Septuagint (Greek translation of the Old Testament) and eventually into the New Testament as apostole (άπόστολος), from which we get the word apostle. As defined in the Tanakh, an apostle is one that is sent forth for a purpose. The function of an apostle, based upon the background of the meaning of the word, is to prepare a table or to provide a proper setting of food to those who are hungry. The apostle's ultimate responsibility is to provide the only true food that YHVH has given to mankind, TORAH.”

This week, let’s sit with the Lord and seek personal understanding from the above passage.

Also, let’s ask Him about the word He released:

“An exchange happens at the Table of Shewbread. We move into complete union“.

What is He speaking to you about “exchange”, and “complete union”?
