The Messiah's miraculous feeding of "about five thousand men, beside women and children":
"14:17 And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes.
Then, a little later, another miraculous feeding, of "four thousand men, beside women and children":
"15:33 And his disciples say unto him, Whence should we have so much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a multitude?
"Give the people, that they may eat: for thus saith the LORD, They shall eat, and shall leave thereof"
Centuries before, at least one of the LORD's prophets, Elisha, also miraculously fed many with little.
"4:42 And there came a man from Baalshalisha, and brought the man of God bread of the firstfruits, twenty loaves of barley, and full ears of corn in the husk thereof. And he said, Give unto the people, that they may eat.
Who was "the LORD" that Elisha quoted in "Give the people, that they may eat: for thus saith the LORD, They shall eat, and shall leave thereof"? Answer: the very same LORD that would later do the same miracles Himself, as quoted in the opening paragraphs - Jesus Christ (see 'The God Of The Old Testament' and 'Before Abraham Was, I AM'; also Christ The Creator).
But what did the Christ say to those who merely looked to Him for physical food?
"6:26 Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled. 6:27 Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed." (John 6:26-27 KJV)
