Importance of Observing Communion

 The 1st communion was performed at passover...

In the Old Testament the blood on the doorposts of the lamb slain was to cover the firstborn when the death angel passed over those who applied the blood; It is directly symbolic (related to) the Lord who is the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world,  His blood covers the house (the bodily temple) causing the wages of sins which is death to PASS OVER all those who APPLY the Blood of the Lord Jesus in faith and obedience, although those who believe but will not COME IN under the covering of the Blood of Jesus nor partake of the "feast of the passover lamb",  remain outside of the covering and will be lost.

The same as they were commanded to eat all the parts of the lamb for the passover, we are commanded that if we "eat not His Flesh, and Drink not His Blood, you have no life in you". St. John 6:55 
The firstborn were the only concerned parties with the death angel passing thru the first time and thereafter the passover was still observed annually for all whether firstborn or not, But for those of us under the new testament observance, the firstborn who escaped death for all of us is Jesus Christ, (firstborn from the grave, and the dead, first resurrected from the dead) Just as not only the firstborn observed passover, all of us should observe the Lord's body at Communion til The Lord comes. Too often I've seen Christians leave, walk out of the sanctuary a minute before Communion is served, this is dishonor to the Lord's Precious Blood sacrifice! Perhaps they have not made a commitment to the Lord yet or they feel guilty that they still cling to one of the things that clung Christ to the Cross.  Jesus bore our sins, truly His Love kept Him Hanging there for us, but it was our sins that nailed Him there.

There are healing benefits to formally observing the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, but the focus is on why we need healing in the first place, and that the healer took our sins upon Himself. There is controversy on how often we should partake; it appears the Word of the Lord only says "as often as you do it, do it unto me...". It could have read "whenever you do it" but it says "as often"; (As long as we do not partake of the Lord's supper/communion for Any Other Reason than "Discerning The Lord's Body", we will not drink damnation to ourselves, but consider this....Can I really be discerning the Lord's Body if I practice what nailed Him to the Cross?

(I believe communion should be observed as often as we would like to formally, as a Body of Believers, remember Jesus Sacrifice, Show/Observe the Lord's death, and Examine ourselves. stir up the Life within us; Certainly sounds like with all the benefits it provides that His sacrifice should be formally observed more than once per year.) 

Scripture reference:

1st Cor 11:25-32

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Do it in Remembrance of The Lord

2. To show the Lord's Death, till He come

3. We are to Examine ourselves (why we participate?) & to  reflect on the purpose of partaking/and the     Lord's Suffering 


 

Scripture on respect for Law and Government

 Pray for all and ungodly leaders, and remember the Words the Lord left us to follow:

IT IS WRITTEN:

 Romans 13: 1- 8  1. Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. 2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: 4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. 5 Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake. 6 For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing. 7 Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour. 8 Owe no man anything, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law


(with all that is going on, let us be wise as serpents, harmless as doves, redeeming the time. Perhaps men of color, even women of color might need to be extra patient and cooperative, maybe even wear a suit and tie, business attire when driving out and about, with subordinate speech, polite, obedient replies. check headlights and rear lights regularly and payoff tickets, and etc. keep your cool !  )
