Why Children's Bread?

Because of it's Relationship to Freedom & Healing

22 And behold, a Canaanite woman from that region came out and was crying, “Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David; my daughter is severely oppressed by a demon.” 23 But he did not answer her a word. And his disciples came and begged him, saying, “Send her away, for she is crying out after us.” 24 He answered, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” 25 But she came and knelt before him, saying, “Lord, help me.” 26 And he answered, “It is not right to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs.” 27 She said, “Yes, Lord, yet even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters' table.” 28 Then Jesus answered her, “O woman, great is your faith! Be it done for you as you desire.” And her daughter was healed instantly. (Matthew 15:22-28 ESV)

Jesus in Matthew 15 relates freedom and healing to the phrase "the Children's Bread" which is specifically reserved for God's children, the children of faith.

Jesus said, 18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives [freedom/deliverance from physical and spiritual bondages and prisons] and recovering of sight to the blind [healing and spiritual eyes opened], to set at liberty those who are oppressed [freedom/deliverance from physical and spiritual oppression], 19 to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor.” (Luke 4:18-19 ESV)

But to all who did receive him [Jesus Christ], who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God (John 1:12 ESV)

See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. (1 John 3:1 ESV)

16 The Spirit himself bears witness to our spirit that we are God’s children. 17 And if children, then heirs (namely, heirs of God and also fellow heirs with Christ) ... 21 the glorious freedom of God’s children [God's ultimate goal for His children] (Romans 8:16-17,21 NET)

Because the Holy Spirit Gave Us the Name

This is the more important reason. It turns out that after I was prompted by the Holy Spirit to build a website to help Christians find the glorious freedom that God has for all His children I was also given the domain name - Children's Bread.  So I started researching the availability of the domain names and but they were already taken as well as  But again the Holy Spirit prompted me to keep trying to obtain that name.  So I researched who owned the names and it turned out that was shortly up for renewal so I placed a special order to obtain the name in case it was miraculously not renewed on time.  Guess what?  To my surprise (not God's) the special order went through a few days after the renewal was due!  The Holy Spirit prompted me yet again to keep trying.  So I ended up finding the actual name and email address of the owner of the domain name, a name that was not pointing to an existing website.  After talking with the owner about my interest in obtaining his domain name and telling him how I intended to use it he graciously released the name to me without charge.  Wow!  The Lord surely wanted me to build websites with domain names that reflected a non-profit ministry type of organization (.org) and included the name ChildrensBread.

Oral Roberts Speaks on The Children's Bread

We believe God heals today but we also believe that Oral Roberts, who was an American Charismatic Christian televangelist, was one of the first to propagate Prosperity Gospel Theology which is NOT biblical.  "Name It Claim It" theology puts God in a box since it is often NOT God's will to always bring a healing at a given time in a person's walk with the Lord.  Name It Claim It diminishes God's sovereigty as He knows best when a healing is appropriate and at other times He uses sickness to bring a necessary brokenness, which leads to a greater surrender, into a person's life.
