THE APOSTLE PAUL ON
THE TABLE OF THE LORD
Part 2

REVIEW

Last week I began with this overview of the basis of Christianity being the Resurrection of Jesus, and the basis of salvation being the Passover.  Again, Jesus is the bridge between the Old and New Testament.  And, as we have learned the entire depiction of Christianity is written into the Old Testament in the Spring Feasts of the Jews.  Also we have learned that the bridge spanning the time from the end times back to the days of Jesus, are the shadows of the Spring feasts of the Jews, fulfilled by the coming of Jesus the Messiah.

The meaning of those feasts, which begins with Passover, and ends with Pentecost, is the message that is cast as a shadow into the future of the Church to become relevant in the time known as ‘the end times’.

As I have taught, Jesus died on Passover, rose on First Fruits, and was offered on Pentecost. But the shadow cast by those feasts is being cast by the Messiah, and in order to be completed as the Messiah, He had to return to His divinity, completing the act of salvation.  He does so publicly by ascending into the clouds, and taking with him those captives that He had set free from their graves on First Fruits.

The Ascension is a separate act, away from the Jewish Feasts because had the Jews accepted the sacrifice of Jesus, there would have been no need to reveal the mystery of the Church.  But, the Word of God can’t come back void, so a substitute became necessary to accept the Word, and make it so.

The message of the Messiah written to the Jews is transferred to the Church and it’s future is fulfilled in Christ by the Ascension.  All of this is part of the shadow cast by Jesus, who is the Messiah.  The fulfillment of the Feasts of the Jews produces the Messiah, who is rejected.  So the substitutes are offered a covenant with heaven and rulership in God’s Kingdom on Earth as the reward for accepting Him on Faith alone.  The Messiah ascends to heaven, taking captive to himself the captives that He set free by His death and resurrection, and does so forty days after He rises, fulfilling the sign of Jonah.

So, God moves the completion of the Abraham covenant ahead to a time when He would return to deal with them, just after completing the covenant made with the substitutes.

The timing for the end of the substitutes covenant, and His return to the conclusion of the Abraham covenant was locked up centuries before in the Prophecy of Daniel.  So, in order to understand the timing of the end times, one must bridge the time by going back to Daniel’s time and following the trail that leads forward to the end times.

If you have been studying with me long enough, we have trod that trail through history together already.  If not, I suggest you get a copy of the teaching on Daniel and Revelation and study it.  It holds the key to end times, when the covenant with the Church ends, and it receives it’s reward.

But, that’s not what we’re here to talk about today.  That was all review to set the stage for this teaching about the Table of the Lord.  What most Christians call Communion.

The Church made a ritual of taking Communion centuries ago, while Paul was still living.  He wrote to the Corinthians about their abomination of the practice that he had taught as a simple, daily remembrance of the work of Christ and what it meant for us.

Jesus was eating the Passover meal when He instituted this practice.  It was done in the home of John the Apostle’s mother.  The Passover commemorated the last night in bondage, and was done in the home. Paul taught it to be done daily, in the home.  It wasn’t meant to be a ritual.  It’s purpose was simplicity itself.  Simplicity, as I have pointed out on many occasions, is the essence of the truth which is God.

I know I have told you the story about how this simple act of remembrance that is so important in the Christian walk, went from the simple act that was taught by Paul, to an orgy for only the rich and depraved that was rooted in the church at Ephesus.

Paul taught that, daily, Christians should take a curst of bread and a cup of drink, as Jesus had done when He instituted this as a remembrance, and upon taking the curst and the cup, to pray; Lord have mercy on me a sinner, while in contemplation of the saving act of Jesus on the cross, as a graphic flash of memory of what the animal in the temple went through in our place, because it would have been us paying for our sins with spiritual death, if it weren’t for the cross.

God was graphic with them to burn the understanding of what, ‘for sin comes death’ means, into their minds forever.  Jesus didn’t just die for our sins, he died graphically!  A picture burned in the minds of Christians forever!  The price paid for you to become a citizen of heaven, with all its rights and privileges, for the simple act of speaking it forth.

 

PART 2

Partaking at The Table of the Lord is an act of faith.  Faith is an action, based upon belief and sustained by confidence, and this act of faith is the expression of that confidence in God’s word.

Our Ministry encourages a return to the New Testament simplicity of this event.  The New Testament converts partook in their homes.  Jesus instituted this in a home while eating the Passover meal, which celebrated the last night in bondage in Egypt, which was eaten in their homes.

There is nothing to prevent Christians from taking these elements themselves every day as an act of simple faith, to remind themselves what Christ did for them.  This is the time to grab hold of God’s promises and literally defy your own experience, and no matter what the circumstance, know that forever o Lord, thy Word is settled in Heaven!  If God promised it, claim it and know that you have it.  That then becomes an object of faith that you hang your body on, defying every circumstance until it’s either fulfilled here, or becomes a ticket to heaven where forever God’s word is settled.

In our crusade to rescue the simplicity of this act of faith, we don’t need any new trues, we need to rediscover the truth that is already written.

I hear the fear that is expressed by some that you have to examine yourself, because if you eat and drink unworthy, you eat and drink damnation!  Well, then nobody can eat and drink at this table.  That fear destroys your right to be a beneficiary of what Jesus established at this table, because nobody is worthy!  We are all unworthy, made worthy only by the blood of the Lamb.

And you receive the benefit of that worthiness, the minute the heart believes it and the mouth proclaims it.  All it takes is the recognition of the truth that Christ paid the price, and that God will take my trusting faith in what he has said that he will give me, for Christ’s sake, and literally stamp me with the righteousness of Christ, where I am immediately placed in heavenly places, and looked at through the spectacles of Christ where my faith is taken as though it were Christ’s performance.  That’s what grace is; unmerited favor.

Let me make a distinction here.  In I Corinthians 11, Paul never said that he that eateth and drinketh unworthy, eateth and drinketh damnation.  What he said was that he who eateth and drinketh unworthily; and adverb, which modifies the verb, not the noun.  It describes the action not the actor.

Paul’s complaint to the Corinthians was about the way they were partaking.  Their worship act had turned into an event that had forgotten what it was all about.  Going to partake at the Table of the Lord requires a focus on the Lord Himself.  Jesus simplified it; do this in remembrance of me.

Paul defined that eating and drinking unworthily was doing it without discerning the Lords body, and what those elements represented.  What the Corinthians were doing was the perfect example of acting unworthily because they were not focusing on the representation of the emblems.

The Bread is representing the broken body.  The cup symbolizing the blood which contains the life poured out by one whose life could stand in for us all.  No matter how good the intention, the very effort of examining your own worthiness takes your eyes off of His worthiness.

I’m not worthy, and neither are you, but we can partake worthily, every day, in our home, by discerning the salvation actions of the Lord.  And the 11th chapter of I Corinthians warns that if you don’t partake worthily, (krima is the word in the Greek) temporary punishment, sickness, weakness and death is what you bring upon yourself.  Not the ultimate damnation of spiritual death depicted later on in the chapter by the word katakrino.

So, failing to discern the meaning of these elements, brings a temporary punishment, including death.  To discern the meaning is to know that we are covered.  That’s what atonement means; covering.  The curse fell on Him, we walk out from underneath.  God can take our faith as though it were His righteousness, including the faith to believe what  I am saying right now.

Now, Why is there bread?  If sin is the only thing at issue, all you need is the cup.  There is bread, because as Peter said, with his stripes you were healed.  I believe in healing, but I like it to happen because of your faith in the truth of God’s word and the recognition that when God took care of the sins of the world, he put some icing on the cake.  He gave you the right to claim the promise of healing and act on it, and I’d do it even if I died in the process.  With His stripes I was healed.

People need healing today, so take the bread and say it with me now, With His stripes I was healed, , as we eat the crust of bread in Jesus name, in full discernment of His healing work.

The cup.  You’ll never be worthy by trying to, “live a clean life”.  You will never be worthy by trying to clean up the house until its deserves the presence of the King.  Faith in God’s word turns God loose to move into the dirty house and start his own cleaning process, and He can do it!  I’ve learned that all I have to do is teach the word of God, and let your faith in God’s word produce His results.  Every person that I am reaching today with this study became worthy the moment they believed that God meant what He said.

As you discern the cup and meaning of the element, you are as worthy as anyone who partakes, so say with me; Lord be merciful to me a sinner, as we take the cup in Jesus name.  Glory be to God!

Now, with that understanding of Paul’s teaching on the Table of the Lord, Paul opens up for us the way to keep our personal relationship with God at it highest level.  The act of participating in communion with Him while in the midst of the memory flash of what He suffered and died for is the “oil” you need to fill your lamp with every morning, so your light will burn brightly all day.
