Exclamation The Lord's Supper; Conduct in the Lord's Table.part one

The Lord’s Supper was the centerpiece of early Christian worship. Gathered around one table, fellow believers met with the Lord and with each other in unity. Christ had expressed this type of humility and unity when He instituted the Supper believers were taking their.
Matt 26:2, 26, 27, 28, 29, 31, 38, 39, 41: (NKJV)"You know that after two days is the Passover, and the Son of Man will be delivered up to be crucified." Take, eat; this is My body." "Drink from it, all of you. For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father's kingdom." All of you will be made to stumble because of Me this night, for it is written: 'I will strike the Shepherd, And the sheep of the flock will be scattered.' "My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch with Me." "O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will." Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak."

Conduct in the Lord's Table


Those who are approved: One of the positive results of division or factionsin the church is that it becomes obvious who the genuine Christians are in the congregation.
1 Cor 11:17-22 (NKJV) Now in giving these instructions I do not praise you, since you come together not for the better but for the worse.
For first of all, when you come together as a church, I hear that there are divisions among you, and in part I believe it.
For there must also be factions among you, that those who are approved may be recognized among you.
Therefore when you come together in one place, it is not to eat the Lord's Supper.
For in eating, each one takes his own supper ahead of others; and one is hungry and another is drunk.
What! Do you not have houses to eat and drink in? Or do you despise the church of God and shame those who have nothing? What shall I say to you? Shall I praise you in this? I do not praise you.


Instruction of the Lords of Supper
1 Cor 11:23-26 (NKJV) For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread;
and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, "Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me."
In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me."
For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death till He comes.


Learning an unworthy manner refers to the way in which a person eats the Lord’s Supper. The Corinthians had been making the meal a time of overeating and getting drunk rather than a time of reflecting on the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Onc Own learning ahead of others, violating the spirit and purpose of the meal. In acting this way, they showed contempt for the body or the church of God and shamed those who had nothing, it's just who are less the state. For one is always hungry and another is drunk having an abundance. For Our Lord see a divisions among you, and in part He believe it. Should
God praise us? When we don't follow the rules and the conduct of our behavior together.

What should be the true subject of the Lord's Supper?
When we speak we should speak and in one voice the Lord our God wants us to declare the Gospel of the cross, to the public. I have seen many subjects, which have nothing to do with the Gospel. Do you not have other forums that we can speak about other subjects that do not pertain to the Gospel?

Proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes: The Lord’s Supper looks back to Christ’s death and forward to His second coming. Also we should address as we eat and drink of the Word of God, as often as possible and proclaim the Lord death till further instruction.


I will tell you this for sure, we are being watched very carefully every word and every action, and Jesus himself will have the last word, and he knows who are the Honorable and the humble with a much humility. Those who suffer with advanced in the eyes of God. And those who know God and no lives words, knows that they must see the darkness before they can see the light, we will answer the kingdom of God with great tribulation members since the beginning of time. So I ask those who really worship the Lord and respect others, that greater reward in the kingdom of God. And sorry to say, just but those who do not see I pray for you that you may.

We're not supposed to eat and drink his word, we are supposed to eat and drink his flesh and blood. BIG difference.

Christ flesh and to drinks His blood is to have eternal life,

John 6:50-56 This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die.
I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world."
The Jews therefore quarreled among themselves, saying, "How can this Man give us His flesh to eat?"
Then Jesus said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you.
Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.
For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed.
He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him.

John 1:13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.


Heb 2:14-15 Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil,
and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.


Heb 9:11-15 But Christ came as High Priest of the good things to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of this creation.
Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption.
For if the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies for the purifying of the flesh,
how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
And for this reason He is the Mediator of the new covenant, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, that those who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.


But to learn the word of God you must eat and drink, and break bread, to unify the body. This a big difference! Indeed. This is called the Lord's supper.

To bring people together, instead of separation. Christ will not comeinto the bodyit is unified together.As long as there's disagreements with each other, this gives Satan advantage over believers. Attitude!
