The Lord’s Supper “… as many call it is now the Communion. From the Elder:
Old Church of God of the New Covenant, that church People one can read of in the Scriptures- 1Cor. 1:2- Gal. 1:13, the one who is all Christian and all New Covenant Jer. 31:31- Heb. 8:1-13- Eph. 2:15-21 Just as God calls for.
That upper room!

It was the last Passover for the people of God and the beginning of the Communion along with the washing of the Saint’s feet. We should always remember this about the savior---Rev. 3:20-22, and understand that we are to overcome the sins of the flesh and that we can have sin in our life after we are saved from the past sins.
Remember this 1 John 1:3- 1 John 1:7-because of 1 John 1:9 this Jesus is taken names and this is what God wants for us Heb. 10:25-and we are to do this Heb. 3:13---This is the job of the elders so we do just what He says-- John 17:3 we do preach this Jesus as the only way because no Preacher, no Elder, no other than the Christmas, Easter, Sunday Jesus has done this for you, Isa. 53:5, so we Preach and Teach Him as the only savior.

The truth is Jesus, who is the Savior, gave us this, Communion and washing of the Sants feet, so men do not get to remove it from the scriptures John 13:1-22--Matthew 26:26-Mark 14:22-25- Luke 22:19-21- 1 Cor. 10: 16-21- 1 Cor. 11:23-26- Acts 2:42-Acts 20:7- 1 Cor. 5:7-
Men do not get to change the day or time, just as He says three days and three nights.
The Truth is God has told us all to not just take the communion without Examine ourselves 1 Cor. 11:28

Does this mean anything to you? Jesus, who “took bread; and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples saying, ‘Take and eat; this is my body which is given for you. ” And he took the wine, saying, “Drink from it, all of you; this is my blood of the new covenant, which is poured out for you for the forgiveness of sins. Do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me. ”
So, our spiritual examination of ourselves quite simply entails believing what God’s Word says. { But it will also have us saying to a false clergy we will only take the communion the way God calls for, And that means to believe what God’s Word says about the seriousness of our sin, about God’s forgiveness in Christ, about the miracle of Christ’s very body and blood being given for us in the Sacrament - Ordeience -for the personal assurance of our forgiveness and also about the fruits of repentance that will naturally show up in our lives as forgiven children of God. because we do know He has already Redeemed us from the sins of Adam and Eve- and that when we John 3:16 He did see to it that we Romans 10:9-13, so we are forgiven for our past sins, and we do know we were forgiven because He has sanctified us with sanctification, is this we know from Him we are forgiven as if we were born again.
This Jesus is who made us more! * More than what we were before, * More than what we have done, ** More than where we are coming from, ** More than what others have done to us. We John 3:16 so we could be more than what we were.
If we let slick the preacher talk us into his way of communion, we will receive what God tells us in 1 Cor. 11:28-34
So are you sick just because of what you do before God?
Why would a human want you to take a false Communion?
When you do things such as this you become cut off from God, that is You take yourself away from God, and at that time that clergy, slick the Percher becomes your God. salvation is not in Him or Her, it is only in Jesus the savior, that is what the word Savior means.
None of these truths are complicated or hard to understand. Communion is to be clear and a comforting blessing for believers. At the same time, these truths are proper to review when we think of Communion. That’s the self-examination to which the Apostle Paul referred in I Corinthians 11, as we quoted before.

This is a Teaching that we have always Preached, as the Old Church of God of the New Covenant, but is not well received.

On the 14th of Nisan and therefore 3 days, and three nights later on the 17th of Nisan He this Jesus of the Scriptures is raised from the dead. This Jesus is the Lamb of God, not the one men make up to rule others in their all New Covenant, all Christian walk where we are working out, our salvation here below. Phi. 2:12
Things to consider:
Self-examination is an important part of living as an authentic New Covenant All Christian life, but by nature we prefer self-deception. Deceiving ourselves is easy and comfortable.
He says self-examination, not the other people at church or in the world around us.
We want to believe ourselves better, smarter, and more ethical than we really are, so careful, Spirit-directed self-examination keeps us honest with ourselves and with God.
Saved from the past sins yet still in the flesh as a human.
We need self-examination to combat the spiritual deception rampant in the world. Scripture tells us to confess our sin to God, which requires a certain amount of self-examination. If we can never find any sin to confess, then “we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us” (1 John 1:8). It is dangerous to lie to ourselves. Second Corinthians 13:5 instructs us to examine ourselves to see if we are truly in Christ. One of Satan’s favorite traps is to whisper false assurance to an unregenerate heart.
Without Spirit-directed self-examination, our enemy’s lie is too pleasant, believable, and palatable to challenge on our own.
We have always needed a way out and John 3:16 is what God gave us all.
Right back to the story of Abel and Cain, we can see the significance of a Lamb sacrifice. (Gen 4:4)
Abraham told Isaac that God will provide a Lamb. (Gen 22:8)
Passover: The LORD tells Israel to slay a lamb and put its blood on the doorposts and eat the entire Lamb. (Exodus Chapter 12)
Jesus is declared to be the Lamb of God. (John 1:29. John 1:36)
Jesus is our Passover Lamb. (1 Corinthians 5:7) all of the Old Holidays were fulfilled and Here we see that the Passover was one of them.
Just think about it:
God himself after Israel was in bondage for 430 years chose a specific date (the 14th of Nisan) for them to slay the Passover Lamb. this Jesus is the person who came in the flesh as a human, and He is that Person of Gen. 1:1- John 1:1-4 He is the only savior.
God chose the date. They were to slay the Lamb in the evening (between 3 PM-6 PM).
We know Jesus died around 3 PM (Mat 27:46) this Jesus who is the gift from God to us all as Luke 2:1-22 says Him as the Great Christmas Gift for the sins of all humankind, the one that Death could not keep, the one who when He speaks to any of us in death we will get up and walk again.

Beware of slick the preacher!
Because Jesus did this, that last night before He went into the tomb for three days and three nights. Matthew 12:20 is what God says and what Jesus did.
around "the ninth hour" He gave Himself for us and that is He made the way as God says John 3:16 as the choice, but not by force, about 3 p. m. (Matthew 27:46-50)

Anyone can count the time and see that what God says to us in the scriptures is His truth.
The washing of the saint’s feet was on a Wednesday evening, the Wednesday before Easter Sunday, in that upper room, just as we still do today as the Old Church of God of the New Covenant. We speak only the truth and do show the truth and stay on the line He placed us on.

Speaking the truth we say! When Jesus went into the tomb it just as the scripture says, because His Bible is truth, and not wrong in any way.
Thursday is day 1- *** Friday-is day 2- *** Saturday is day 3- Thursday night is night 1--Friday night is night 2--- Saturday night is night 3-- Sunday is when Jesus came out of the Tomb, just as God had told us He would. Just like Jonna in the great fish. The scriptures always tell us the truth.
One difficulty with self-examination is that we do not always know our own hearts. Jeremiah 17:9 says, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? ” True self-examination must be done with the Holy Spirit, who searches the deep things of the heart (1 Corinthians 2:10–11).

Do not let slick the Pastor, with His doctors of the truth as they call them tell you a church people can’t ’sin under Christ because this Jesus of the Bible does tell John that this Church in Revelation is in sin, read it for yourselves. Rev 3: 1-22 remember this, is the Old Church of God of the New Covenant Jesus the Christ is talking about here, this is not some other church His Churches in this human world are in sin.

The church of Laodicea was in sore need of self-examination, but they had a hard time seeing their problem: “You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing. ’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked” (Revelation 3:17). The psalmist says, “Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts; And see if there be any hurtful way in me, And lead me in the everlasting way” (Psalm 139:23–24). The psalmist here admits that he does not even know whether his actions and motives are pure. So he invites the Lord, the Righteous Judge, to test him and reveal to him his own sin.
Beware::
But men want the power over this way of truth so they have as many as they can fall for slick the preacher- in this way of thinking. God tells us all Just do what I have commanded You to do.
They change it to a good Friday day. This is not in the Bible.
They have mountains of days, such as the keeping of the old Covenant ways, of Passover, Sabbath days such as Holidays, Feast days- focuses 40- Lent- anything but just if He says it it is good enough for us. Does God say three days and three nights is that good enough for you? Anything to bring the liberty that God has given under their own way of thinking.
Maundy Thursday is not what the bible says at all. And it is not in the bible.
Wednesday evening was the last Passover that Jesus of the bible had with His Church-people. *** and He removed it from the church people, Gave us a New Covenant and its Ordinances ** all of them!
The meal Jesus shared with His disciples during the evening hours of Nisan 14 is on a Wednesday night is often called “The Last Supper” one of the things the Old Church of God Elders always ask is what is it, that men can’t see when He says the Last supper, and why some denominations still think that one can keep a Passover, or day of Atonement when there is no such thing as a Temple in this world, we see the Jews at that wall where it once was on TV praying all of the time. And why someone would have it wrong, and call it “Maundy Thursday. ” Because the Bible does tell us the truth, this Last Supper was on a Wednesday evening before the Sunday Easter. ? Many Christian churches worldwide on Thursday night and the name “Maundy Thursday is given but it is not the truth. This is why we tell you the God will call them back to Him before the end Rev. 18:1-4 His People are in all of these churches.

Wednesday evening before Easter Sunday is the first Communion and the fulfillment of the old Covenant Passover. All old laws are over and this Jesus of the scriptures, that Christmas, Easter, Sunday Jesus did this just as God says, He would, He would send us an all Christian all New Covenant and He did -Jer. 31:31- Heb. 8:1-13.

Nisan is the Hebrew first month of the year, Abib of the Passover on the 14th

In truth, there is no contradiction between the Synoptics and John on the day of the Crucifixion.
This is the Teaching of the Old Church of God of the New covenant.
The Thursday crucifixion literally fulfills the expression, "three days and three nights, " according to Jewish reckoning. It also fulfills three days according to sunrise reckoning, if Jesus arose before sunrise on Sunday. This is pure truth and the choice given for us to believe.

{18:28} Then they led Jesus from Caiaphas into the praetorium. Now it was morning, and so they did not enter into the praetorium, so that they would not be defiled, but might eat the Passover.
{18:29} Therefore, Pilate went outside to them, and he said, “What accusation are you bringing against this man? ”
{19:14} Now it was the preparation day of the Passover, about the sixth hour. And he said to the Jews, “Behold your king. ”
{19:15} But they were crying out: “Take him away! Take him away! Crucify him! ” Pilate said to them, “Shall I crucify your king? ” The high priests responded, “We have no king except Caesar. ”
{19:16} Therefore, he then handed him over to them to be crucified. And they took Jesus and led him away.
We do need to remember this when we seek to believe what the scriptures say!

What follows is a chronology of the events surrounding the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ presented in a plausible and logical way in an effort to resolve that question, so we do teach it this way.

To begin, at what time of day does the Bible say that Jesus died on the cross? ...
Mat 27:46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
Mat 27:50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. Mark 15:34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
Mark 15:37 And Jesus cried with a loud voice and gave up the ghost.
The scriptures tell us that the Messiah died sometime around the 9th hour of the day (9 hours after the sun had risen). The ninth hour would be about our, 3 pm in the afternoon and He was put in the sepulcher before sunset. Bear in mind that the reason they were in a hurry to bury Jesus was that the Sabbath would begin at sundown.. .
Luke 23:54 And that day was the preparation, and the sabbath drew on.
... this is because the Hebrew day begins and ends at sunset, as the Bible makes plain, and Jews practice even today-
Gen 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the *evening and the morning* were the first day. Lev 23:32.. . from even unto even, shall ye celebrate your sabbath. This was the once- the weekly sabbath.
Now exactly which Sabbath day, the first day of Unleavened Bread, or the Seventh-day (Saturday) Sabbath? All of these Sabbithes Jesus would fulfill and take away from the walk as a Christian. The all Christian all New Covenant is this Jer. 31:31- Heb. 8:1-13 with us today only under this as Eph. 2:15-21 says we are to be.
Read this: Luke 23:52 This man went unto Pilate and begged the body of Jesus.
Luke 23:53 And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulcher that was hewn in stone, wherein never man before was laid.
Luke 23:54 And that day was the preparation, and was sundown of Thursday and the sabbath drew on.
Luke 23:55 And the women also, which came with him from Galilee, followed after, and beheld the sepulcher, and how his body was laid.
Luke 23:56 And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments, and rested the sabbath day according to the commandment. so this Jesus was already in the tomb Thursday day 1- Thursday Night -Night 1- Friday, day 2: and Friday Night, Night 2- Saturday Day 3, Saturday night 3-
Luke 24:1 Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulcher, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.

Mark 16:1 And when the sabbath was past, the Saturday sabbath Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.
Mark 16:2 And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulcher at the rising of the sun.
The women viewed the sepulcher and the body of Jesus on the preparation day (Thursday evening before sunset) and then rested according to the 4th Commandment, on the Saturday Sabbath. When the Saturday Sabbath had passed, the women returned to the tomb at sunrise, and that day was the first day of the week (Sunday). Clearly then, Jesus was crucified on Thursday afternoon, the preparation day for the feast day of the old covenant was at sundown Sabbath.

Nine other verses in the New Testament describe the Resurrection as taking place “on the third day” without mentioning three nights. With Scripture, it is always a good principle to interpret the exception in light of the usual way of saying things, and not vice-versa. Three of the other “third day” verses are found in Matthew (16:21, 17:23, 20:19), four are found in Luke (9:22, 18:33, 24:7, 24:46), as well as one in Acts (10:40) and one in 1 Corinthians (15:4)
In Luke 24:21, as the disciples are speaking with the risen Jesus, they remark that “it is the third day” since all these things have happened. John 2:19-22 speaks of the Resurrection taking place “in three days. ”

The key to understanding the chronology of the events leading up to and including Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection is that there were two Sabbaths in that week, with a day of preparation between them.
This makes all of the Gospel’s accounts fall into place. The fulfillment of Christ's words becomes clear. A correct harmonization of all the facts will bear this out.

So we do teach what the Bible says, and not what men want it to say!

We have therefore the following facts, to teach us all what the scriptures say is the truth. furnished for our sure guidance: What God says in the scriptures should be good enough for us.
1. The "high day" of John 19:31 was the first day of the feast.
2. The "first day of the feast" was on the 15th day of Nisan.
3. The 15th day of Nisan, commenced at sunset on what we should call the 14th.
4. "Six days before the Passover" (John 12:1) takes us back to the 9th day of Nisan.
5. "After two days is the Passover" (Matt. 26:2. Mark 14:1) takes us to the 13th day of Nisan.
6. "The first day of the week", the day of the resurrection (Matt. 28:1, &c. ), was from our Saturday sunset to our Sunday sunset. This fixes the days of the week, just as the above fix the days of the month, for:
7. Reckoning back from this, "three days and three nights" (Matt. 12:40), we arrive at the day of the burial, which must have been before sunset, on the 14th of Nisan; i. e. before our Wednesday sunset.
8. This makes the sixth day before the Passover (the 9th day of Nisan) to be our Thursday sunset to Friday sunset.
Therefore Wednesday, we the night that Jesus was taken after the washing of the Saints feet, and giving us the Communion, with the foot washing once a year at evening on that Wednesday before the Sunday Easter that was ten to come, but now is. Nisan 14th (commencing on the Tuesday at sunset), They want Him down before the time of this sundown so the at the cross the roman stuck his spear in Jesus side, to make sure He was dead. Because the time was coming to "the preparation day", which was so near when the crucifixion took place: for all four Gospels definitely say that this was the day on which the Lord was buried (before our Wednesday sunset), "because it was the preparation " the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, "for that sabbath day was a high day", and, therefore, not the ordinary seventh day, or weekly Sabbath. See John 19:31

It follows, therefore, that the Lord being crucified on "the preparation day" could not have eaten of the Passover lamb, which was not slain until the evening of the 14th of Nisan (i. e. afternoon).
Jesus was that Lamb, On that day the daily sacrifice was killed at the 6th hour (noon) and offered about the 7th hour (1 p. m. ). The killing of the Passover lambs began directly afterward. Thus it is clear, that if the killing of the Passover lambs did not commence until about four hours after our Lord had been hanging upon the Cross, and would not have been concluded at the ninth hour (3 p. m. ) when "He gave up the ghost;"—no "Passover lamb" could have been eaten at the "last supper" on the previous evening. But this Jesus who is the Head of all church people, and Is alive was that lamb for us all for the sins of the world Luke 2:1-22-.

With these facts before us, we are now in a position to fill in the several days of the Lord's last week with the events recorded in the Gospels. By noting that the Lord returned to Bethany (or to the Mount of Olives) each night of that week, we are able to determine both the several days and the events that took place in them. Do not let slick the clergy have you keep anything that is not said in the Scriptures.

The washing of the Saints feet?
And He said that we are to follow His example!
Jesus washing the disciples' feet is found in John 13:1-7. It happened on the night before the crucifixion - the very night of His betrayal (v2). Although the Lord was well aware of all the suffering that lay before Him (v1, 3), He spent this last evening serving His short-sighted followers. Although He was looking beyond the cross with great anticipation to a joyful reunion with the Father (vs1, 3), He was concerned (as always) about meeting the needs of others around Him. Although He knew that all things were “given into His hand, ” the Lord of all things used those hands to serve the disciples who would soon desert Him! No wonder the Scripture says that “He loved them to the end” - to the fullest possible extent (v1). This great love was demonstrated in the act of washing their feet.
But this was not only an act of love and concern and humility - but it was also an act of teaching. All of our Lord's actions (His works) as recorded in Scripture portray or dramatize His teaching (His words). What is the teaching of foot-washing?
Jesus took bread, blessed it and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, ‘Take, eat; this is my body. ’ Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, ‘Drink from it, all of you’” (Matthew 26:26-27)

INTRO—Man has erected many memorials and monuments to remember great men and events— pyramids, Statue of Liberty, Washington Monument, Lincoln Monument. God has also left us with memorials as tokens of important events and covenants—rainbow (Genesis 9:11-17), pot of manna (Exodus 16:32-34), stones from Jordan River (Joshua 4:1-9), Passover (Exodus 12:1-14). The Lord’s Supper is the world’s greatest monument commemorating the world’s greatest event (1 Corinthians 11:26).

THE PASSOVER has been fulfilled, AND THE LORD’S SUPPER has already been done,
We now have an all-new Covenant and do keep the communion, and do have the washing of feet on that Wednesday even before Easter Sunday morning
To keep us from the tricks of slick the preacher we do need to

Understand the Significance Of The Passover. When was the Passover first instituted (Exodus 11-12)?

What did it celebrate? How does Jesus Himself relate to this special event and present Himself as the key to the real meaning of the Old Testament offerings (Matthew 5:17- 18)? • Passover Sacrifice (Luke 22:15-16; 1 Corinthians 5:7)—

• Sin Offering (Leviticus 6:24-30; Matthew 26:28)— • Covenant Sacrifice (Exodus 24:4-8; Luke 22:20)—
Relationship Between The Two Meals. The gospels record that “the Last Supper” was a Passover Meal (Matthew 26:17-19; Mark 14:12, 16; Luke 22:15). Using these emblems and representations, He instituted a new Supper to remind them of an even better sacrifice.

Institution Of Lord’s Supper. When Jesus instituted this Supper, He chose the emblems for their convenience and significance. We have no right to substitute something else. • Unleavened Bread. Why “unleavened” bread (Matthew 26:17; cf. Exodus 12:15-20)? What does it symbolize (Luke 22:19)?

• Fruit Of The Vine where God calls it Wine. What does it symbolize (Matthew 26:27-28; Luke 22:20)?

Who Is It Designed For? Is it a memorial for all persons who are interested in sharing it, or is it designed with certain people in mind? Does the church decide to whom it will be “open” or “closed”? What does each of the following passages indicate?

In the frantic pace of modern living, it is very possible that many of us are relatively religious, but not very spiritual.
We should always do whatever God tells us to do.

There is a difference. One is more outward, the other more inward. We may know much about God, but struggle to really know what God tells us God is the only way to understand. (Philippians 3:10; 1 John 5:20).

God Desires Communion. Don’t let the greatness and awesome majesty of God fool you—He desires communion with His creation. Note how He has sought communion with man at various times. • Genesis 3:8-9— • Exodus 25:8-9—

• 1 King 6:11-13— • Matthew 1:23— • Ephesians 2:19-22— • Ephesians 3:17— • 1 John 4:12-16—
Communion Through Meditation. Meditation allows us to suspend the world around us for a time while we consider things of a spiritual nature (Psalm 4:4).

What does “meditation” help us to do? • Psalm 5:1-3— • Psalm 19:14— • Psalm 46:10— • Psalm 49:3— • Psalm 63:6-8— • Psalm 143:5-6—
Communion Through Worship

. Worship lifts us to a higher spiritual plane, where we come in contact with the Lord Himself (Hebrews 4:16)
. How does each of the following bring us into communion with God and Christ?
• Assembling for worship (Matthew 18:20)—
• Prayer (Philippians 4:6)— • Lord’s Supper (1 Corinthians 10:16-17; 11:23-29)—
• Singing (Hebrews 13:15)— CONCLUSION—There is great joy and rich blessings in “knowing God” and He has already said all under the New Covenant already know Him Heb. 8: 1-13 and sharing that intimate relationship with Him (Jeremiah 9:23-24; John 17:3). God already told us of this time as we read in Jer. 31:31

Such is the kind of men God seeks (Hosea 6:6)
. The man who sets out to know what God has as His Creed of Doctrine for each person, and His Son is the only Savior, men can’t save anyone. So as the Human was never to arrive at the place where they tell others who God is, —he the Savior keeps on arriving all the time in the saved person’s heart. With no choice, the Human would never fully comprehend that God wants us all to have the free will to receive Him or reject Him. that is Choice.

The Lord’s Supper— had an end but the Communion is,

A Fitting Memorial “And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, ‘This is my body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of me’” (Luke 22:19)

Read Matthew 27:11-54. Those words mean much to us after hearing them. The scene is vivid and lifelike in our minds. But what happens after a couple of days past? Jesus wanted His disciples to never forget what He had done. He set up a memorial—shared by millions of people over 2000 years—which still has not lost its significance to participants.

PROPER MANNER OF OBSERVING THE COMMUNION!

A. Not In Confusion (1 Corinthians 11:17-26, 33-34). What caused all the confusion in the Corinthian church’s observance of the communion?
What was God’s response to their corruption of Communion (1 Corinthians 11:27-32)?

B. Observe Worthily (1 Corinthians 11:27-30).

Do you let slick the Preacher give you a false communion?

Communion is a sacred exercise. He does not say we must “be worthy” but must take it in “a worthy manner”—
what is the difference?
What would be an “unworthy manner” to partake of it 1>Cor-(11:29b)?

{What are the consequences of partaking unworthily 1> Cor. - (11:27, 29)? } will you let a false Communion bring this into your family’s life?
Observe In Peace And Harmony With Brethren (1 Corinthians 10:17).
The Lord has His Communion, and it is a ritualistic farce if there is bitterness between brethren who are partaking.
What does the Communion signify about the relation of the brethren who share in it?

Let God’s word the Scriptures Give us the Understood way and How, and Only By Its Participants in it what God requires.
It is a simple act. What would you think about it if you had never come in contact with Christianity? So why do we do this? the answer is because God tells us to.

How can its participants appreciate it so much, when others cannot even comprehend it ( 1 Corinthians 2:14; Romans 8:5-9)?
Memorial (1 Corinthians 11:24-25).

What is one of the worst reactions we could have to the Lord’s death and suffering?

Why was the Lord’s Communion instituted?
Proclamation (1 Corinthians 11:26).
What kind of things are we telling the world about when we partake of the Communion?
Anticipation (1 Corinthians 11:26). Not only does the Communion point backward as a reminder, but it also points forward.

What kind of things does it look forward to?

• 1 Corinthians 10:16-17— • 1 Corinthians 10:21— • Matthew 26:29— • 1 Corinthians 11:28—

When Should It Be Observed? If we had no instruction regarding a day or time, then it would be up to our judgment. But what does the Bible indicate about…

• The day (Acts 20:7)— • The frequency (Acts 20:7; cf. Exodus 20:8)—

The Communion and the washing of the saints’ feet is a wonderful channel for worship. It is not to be the only time of our busy weeks that we remember the Lord’s death and seek communion with Him though. Actually, it is designed to be a memorial of the communion that we share with the Lord each day. And when we wash feet we are saying we are not better than someone else.

Introspection (1 Corinthians 11:28). As much as this memorial points to Jesus, it also makes us look at ourselves.

What are we examining within ourselves?

Communion (1 Corinthians 10:14-21). What is the significance of something being a “communion”? In what way is that communion with… • Christ (1 Corinthians 10:16)— • and His Brethren (1 Corinthians 10:17)—

The single greatest event in history darkened the sun at noon, but the way our lives move in fast forward motion, we have a hard time remembering what happened last week, much less what happened 2000 years ago. The Communion is a special memorial that takes us out of the mainstream of life for a short time to have spiritual fellowship with our Lord and our brethren. Don’t forget! The only way is this Christmas, Easter, Sunday Jesus because He is the only way John 3:16 and if we make the choice to come to Him just as God has told us through Him we are saved.

Until Next time: The Elder: Repent before you take any Communion, do not let some slick Rooster make you fall into sickness because of sin before Heaven.
