Red Letter Words

Today I want to share From John 6, (commentary next post)

Jesus is talking Himself about what Communion means

Joh 6:53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.

Joh 6:54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.

Joh 6:55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.

Joh 6:56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.

Joh 6:57 As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.

Joh 6:58 This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.

Of Cups and Measuring

When Jesus gave us the Cup of His Shed Blood

He said, “When you drink this Cup, do it Remembering Me”

Remember all He accomplished as mans representative in the New Covenant

Remember there is a new measurement for you, a new judgement (if you will)

You are forgiven, you are in Right standing with the Father, you are in Heaven right now, face front and forward with the True Living God

No longer worm, or sinner

No longer a slave, owned by the enemy of your soul (mind), the principality of the air

You have been Redeemed

The Cup of Jesus Shed Blood Declares your Righteousness in Him for all time,

Regardless of how you think you are doing in your daily life or your faith walk

Learning this new form of measurement is difficult for a human, because it has been ingrained in us, that we are forever worms

Both can not be Truth

Jesus Blood is the Proof of the Truth of your Forever Forgiveness and Righteousness

Dear One, take Communion, Remember the New Measurement of who you are…

One with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

Judging yourself Forgiven and pleasing to the Father is the Good Fight of Faith

It is the only acceptable form of judgement left to a believer

And is the ultimate form of humility, agreeing with the authority over you, God Himself, and what He declares you to be

Beloved, no matter what ails you, Jesus Shed Blood is the Highest, Purest, Highest Priced, and Most Effective medicine we can take, and it is given freely

So take the Cup, receive and agree with ALL the Cup represents, for it IS yours!

The Power of Thanks

Communion never ceases to amaze me

For example, the bread and wine, and how it was changed into…

Something Completely Different,

After Jesus gave Thanks to the Father

The scripture says He gave Thanks, then turned to the disciples (us) and gave

He gave the same piece of bread He took, and the same cup He took, they looked no different

Yet He called them by different Names

They had changed in both meaning and substance

This is My Body Broken for You

This is My Blood Shed for You

No longer representing just the old but the New

The New Covenant

The New Birth

The New Relationship with Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

Jesus gave Thanks, even knowing what was about to happe, and all He would suffer at the hand of men for all men

We can do the same in our everyday lives

Being Grateful changes the atmosphere

It tangibly changes the very substances in our midst, even if they look the same

Change has come about, thru Gratitude

Of Kings and Priests

As Believers in the Person of Jesus Christ and His Finished Work

We KNOW that He is in Heaven and Healed

No longer on the Cross, in the Grave, or in Hell

Risen and Seated at the Right and of the Father

Which is also our place

As a Believer we have been made a King and Priest

We can have / take Communion anytime we have the need/ urge

No longer relegated to a doctrine of only on the first Sunday, or Sundays, or in some congregations never

Communion and the Remembering of our Personal Rights bought and paid for by the Broken Body and Shed Blood, and Resurrection of Jesus is IMPERATIVE

Not just when in trouble but always

It used to be people received Communion Daily

How strengthen they must have felt approaching their day

How unified with Jesus and His Leading (by the Holy Spirit), and Power

There is Health and Healing and Power in Communion

It reminds us, begs us to Remember, we are no longer sinner worms

BUT RISEN and Seated with Him in Heavenly places

No curse, no destruction, no condemnation, no reason to fear

It grounds my mind and my Faith when I take Communion and I start with the Words

“Jesus, on the night you were betrayed, you were celebrating Passover, the passing over, the passing by of destruction and death, past the Children of Israel, the Children of God”

To Remember destruction, curse, affliction, death have been judged and broken, rendered powerless

As a King and a Priest I can Speak Remembrance and uplift my spirit and my mind unto the Lord!

What a GIFT!!!

Serve Him and yourself Today, Remember…Remember
