This is a bit of a playful question, and I don't really expect anyone to actually know the answer, but...
Let's assume for the moment that the miracle of Jesus feeding the multitude actually happened. It is, in fact, the only miracle (apart from the resurrection) which is present in all four canonical Gospels (Matthew 14:13–21, Mark 6:31-44, Luke 9:10-17 and John 6:5-15.)
How might Jesus have accomplished this?
Was Jesus able to perform what appears to be (from our earthly perspective) a miracle because He was omniscient, and being outside of time, able to go fishing while we weren't looking?
What do you think?

The miracle of multiplying happens still in this day and age, when there only is enough for a small amount and many people show up.
Firstly the food is blessed but as well it is not seen that the earth is the supply but God is the supply. Since God is the supply the food or what ever can be multiplied, this happened to Patrica King she didn't have enough food for the guest her husband brought home with him unexpectedly. She blessed the food and and said Jesus you multiplied the fish and the bread this is your food, these are your people do with your food as you please. She went to feed them and each person took a big helping, she was worried and wondered but the plate was passed all around and when it finely returned to her everyone had their fill and there was plenty left!
That happened in India at a missionary place for children recently as well, the cooks cooked enough rice for 1000 people, 2000 showed up, God multiplied the rice and everyone was full and there was plenty left over.
This happened in Africa too there were guest missionary people and the they ate most of the food, the children didn't eat, so Heidi Baker said what is there left? The cook said we only have one box of chicken left, not much at all, she blessed the food the said this is your food God and these are your children that are hungry. She fed hundreds of children and everyone had enough and there was chicken left over.
So if you want to know if I believe the miracles of today Jesus did over 2000 years ago, I say yes, God was the same then as God is now so yes I believe it.

Wade, do you have a link to further information regarding this miracle?
(16 Jun '10, 06:16) Stingray
Yes it will take me a bit since these are from different times and places, the one in Africa is on Finger of God deluxe edition. The one in India is on Furious Love Deluxe edition. The one on Patrica King is on the show Sid Roth It's Supernatural. I will see if I can find links probably in www.XPMedia.com if I search.

I have found on the PsiTek site a wonderful book, Jesus Taught It Too. It shows clearly that he knew very well how the LoA worked, and being direct son of God, he didn't have a trace of doubt that he could get anything he wanted. Be it feeding a crowd, get a sick person cured, or reviving the dead. I think that's what we're laking today, IMO, when we try to apply the LoA principles: Supreme Faith
So I suppose he knew he had some fish, and he had such Faith in his Father that, without a doubt passing his mind, he started sharing what he got, certain that he could feed them all.
As we have been made all co-creators, why sometimes we can't manifest something?: We lack Faith!

Interesting approach. Nonetheless I think we lack power, not faith. Jesus being united with his Father was omnipotent and could literally change the material world with his thoughts.

I respectfully disagree. On Jesus own words:
18-Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of the boy, and he was healed from that moment.
19-Then the disciples came to Jesus in private and asked, "Why couldn't we drive it out?"
20-He replied, "Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." Matthew 17:18-20.

And then again: 6-He replied, "If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, 'Be uprooted and planted in the sea,' and it will obey you. Luke 17:6
So Jesus is saying clearly that we can do it, regardless of power or opnipotence!

i would say that he gave example and some people have follow that example and that was the miracle or how the miracle works. remember all the energy have to work together in sharing. and that is what is important. that the bread and fish came directely from the energy (coming from the air,heaven,magic)or from the people following his example and putting more in the basket that what they took is secondary and only a duality. it could be a mix of both. but those it matter to know it? or can you enjoy the miracle? the child set the example. here is 2 video that you will enjoy.
experience and enjoy.
