Communion:  

 

The word communion taken back to the prime in the Greek dictionary is 2844 in Strong's Concordance; it means to associate with, to be a companion of, and fellowship with, and to be a partaker of, and a partner of our Lord Jesus Christ.

In Proverbs 9:5 we are told by God to come, eat my bread and drink of the wine which I have mingled. (The Passover today is Holy Communion.)

In Proverbs 9:5 we are invited to the Lord's Table. His bread and wine is His word, word He prepared for us so we could be nourished and refreshed by it. God's word is meat and drink to people that are sincerely putting God/Jesus Christ first in their lives, or trying to. People that God is giving eyes to see and ears to hear.

In Psalms 22:29 we are told that all they (All Gods elect) that be fat upon the earth shall eat and worship, (In other words they will fellowship and worship God.) all they that go down to the dust (All people that die) shall bow before Him. (They will bow before Jesus Christ, God) And none shall keep alive his (Or her) own soul.

(Nobody can keep alive their soul because God owns all souls. God is the only one that can keep you alive, and He is the only one that can give you eternal life.)

(When our Lord Jesus Christ returns on the first day of the millennium all people (Souls) will bow to Him.)

Isaiah 55:1-3 is God's invitation to you to have communion with him and He says, ho, (look here) everyone that thirsteth, (Everyone who is thirsty for the word of God) come ye (You) to the waters, and ye (You) that have no money: come ye (You) buy wine and milk (Come and buy the word of God) without money and without price.

(You don't have to pay for the truth in Gods word.)

2. Wherefore do ye (Why do you) spend money for that which is not bread? (Bread means Gods word.) And you labor for that which satisfieth not? (In other words you work to buy things but they never satisfy you.) Hearken diligently unto me, (In other words listen intelligently and pay attention) and eat that which is good, (Gods word is good for your soul.) and let your soul delight itself in fatness.

(Let your soul delight itself in Gods word, this word, in the depth of God's word.)

3. Incline your ear, (Listen) and come onto me: (Put me first in your life.) hear, and your soul shall live: and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, (Everlasting means forever) even the sure mercies (Love) of David.

(If you put Jesus Christ first in your live and hear what He has to say to you in His bible your soul will live, not your flesh, your flesh will die, you will be in your spiritual body and you will have eternal life.)

In 1 Corinthians 10:16 Paul tells us the cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion (Partnership, fellowship) of the blood of Christ. The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?

(The bread we break is the communion of the body of Jesus Christ because it joins us all in one body.)

In 1 Corinthians 11: 23&24 Paul tells us that in the same night Jesus Christ was betrayed He took bread and after He (Jesus Christ) had given thanks to God He brake it and said, take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.

In 1 Corinthians 11:25 Paul tells us that after the same manner also He (Jesus Christ) took the cup, when He had supped, (Had dinner) saying, this cup is the New Testament (New covenant) in my blood: This do ye, (You) as oft (Often) as ye (You) drink it, in remembrance of me.

(We as individuals do this in remembering the crucifixion, why he was crucified, where he was crucified, who crucified him and when he was crucified)

In 1 Corinthians 11:26-30 Paul tells us; For as often as ye (You) eat this bread, and drink this cup, (The cup of Christ's blood; certainly not as often as you have supper) ye (You) do shew (Proclaim) the Lord's death till he come. (When you take Holy Communion you are proclaiming the crucifixion of our Lord Jesus Christ. When you take Holy Communion don't forget the four w's thus putting it in a fixed time and date in prophecy, not something that happened by chance because it was Gods plan to save His children. The four W, s are who, (By who?) Jesus was crucified by the Kenites, the offspring of Cain who was the offspring of satan and Eve's affair in the garden of Eden. (What for?) He was crucified to pay for the sins of the world, to defeat death. (When?) He was crucified on Passover, He became our Passover lamb. Where? He was crucified on Mt. Zion , in Jerusalem .)

(The crucifixion of our Lord Jesus Christ paid the price for you that upon repentance you are made perfect until you sin again because we are not perfect in these flesh bodies. Jesus Christ shed His blood for you, becoming the last blood sacrifice for sins for one and all times. That is why we take Communion.)

27 Wherefore whosoever (Man, woman, or child) shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. (This is not saying whosoever eats this bread and drinks this cup is perfect, that's not what Paul is talking about, he is talking about making a meal out of communion, it's not supper time. Communion signifies and proclaims the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and if you partake of it like eating supper you are unworthy and secondly if you don't believe He was worthy and partake of it you are unworthy. Jesus Christ was worthy to pay the price for our sin; don't be preparing it as a supper to satisfy flesh, if you are doing so you are taking it unworthily because you don't realize the value of it. The value of it is that the body of Jesus Christ took the stripes and because of this our flesh bodies take the healing. The wine representing His blood takes away all of our sins upon repentance and makes us a new man or woman. Because of this to look at it just as supper is partaking of it unworthily and in ignorance. The subject here is not how good you have been because we all fall short of being perfect, but by taking communion you are proclaiming what Jesus Christ did for you; you are proclaiming that He was worthy to die on the cross for your sins. Knowing why you are partaking of communion makes you worthy.

28 But let a man (Or woman) examine himself, (Or herself), and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.
