Communion

This week, leading up to Resurrection Sunday, I’d like to take a few moments to share some things I have learned about Communion.

Jesus Christ asked us to keep in remembrance his broken body and shed blood.

1 Corinthians 11:23-26 New International Version (NIV)
23 For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, 24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.”

25 In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.”

26 For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

A question I sometimes get is “Should I take the Lord’s Supper? I feel so unworthy.”

Oh yes! My friend we are all unworthy! All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.

We all have missed the mark and we all need His forgiveness and healing.

We need to remember and freely receive all He has done for us. Forgiveness of sin in the past, present and future – and the consequences of that sin, which is sickness and death.

The broken body is for the healing of our bodies.

So when you eat of the bread remember it is for your healing.

We have a new life and a new covenant to walk in.

Thank Him for His selfless sacrifice and accept the victory over sin and its consequences that he has given us.

Please email kingdomliving09@gmail.com if you plan to participate in prayer, worship and communion. I’d love to hear from you.

May God’s richest blessings be upon you and your families.

In light of the recent global challenge presented by the corona-virus we are inviting all believers in Christ world-wide to join together spiritually during Easter Week for unified prayer, worship, and communion.

You are invited to join us for prayer, worship and communion.

How may we accomplish this?

Even though we may not be able to physically come together, we are united by the spirit of God and thus we are the One Body of Christ.

The following guidelines are simple and may be used in any culture:

During Easter Week each individual may fit a time in their lives to pray, worship and partake in communion.

I encourage you to reach out to others to join us in the spirit for this Kingdom Call to Prayer.

Philippians 4:6-7 KJV

6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Love in Christ

Psalm 127:1 (KJV) Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

Jesus teaching His disciples

Once an individual begins to “consider” Jesus as the Apostle and High Priest of our calling then and only then will they begin to experience true liberty in Christ. (Hebrews 3:1 KJV)

When a person is confident of their relationship with Christ then we no longer look to any man for our answers to life’s dilemmas.

When I talk about the Kingdom of God, I’m talking about the primary purpose Christ became a man! He willfully left His place with the Father, leaving behind all of the attributes He left as a divine Son thereby limiting Himself to be born a helpless baby.

This is great love! That Christ left His majesty in heaven and willfully chose to become a servant.

Throughout all the gospels, Christ is preaching and teaching about the Kingdom of God (Heaven). He is not only preaching and teaching, He is also demonstrating what the Father would do and say in any given situation. But even more than this, Christ is also demonstrating
how a human beings attitude should be towards God. With this Christ played a dual role of first showing us the Father and secondly showing us how to live before the Father.

Matthew 4:23 (KJV)

And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.

With His every word and action Christ was showing us by example what the Father would do and how we should live both individually and corporately in the Kingdom of God which Christ ushered in when He said, “The Kingdom of God is at Hand.”

He taught us how to pray to our Father and not to some distant impersonal God who is far removed from our everyday lives.

Christ also simplified the Law of Moses to two commandments when He said the first and great commandment is to Love God with all your heart, mind and soul and the second was like unto the first that you should love your neighbor as yourselves. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets!

Matthew 9:35 (KJV)

And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.

If you read the gospels and the church epistles through the lens of the kingdom of God you will be amazed at what you will discover.

The book of Acts begins with:

Acts 1:1-3 (KJV)
1 The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach,

2 Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen:

3 To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:

According to this scripture Christ spent 40 days in His resurrected body speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God!

In Acts 2:42-47 after about five thousand repented and accepted Jesus of Nazareth as their Messiah, Christ (The Boss) set up His kingdom economy and not one of them lacked!

This was the mindset of the first century ecclesia! These people were of one mind concerning the Apostles doctrine which obviously must have been all that Christ taught them about how to live a kingdom life.

The beginning with the miracle of the lame man being healed when Peter and John were on their way to the Temple throughout the entire Book of Acts, everywhere we see the preaching of Christ and the gospel of the kingdom, miracle occurred.

Then finally in the last verses of Acts we find Paul preaching the kingdom of God and teaching those things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ with all confidence, no man forbidding him.

Acts 28:30-31King James Version (KJV)
30 And Paul dwelt two whole years in his own hired house, and received all that came in unto him,

31 Preaching the kingdom of God, and teaching those things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ, with all confidence, no man forbidding him.

Jesus our Boss told His disciples to go into all the word, and preach the GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM!

Mark 16:15-16 (KJV)
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

So what is missing today in professional Christianity?

What are not we seeing genuine works of God?

My contention is the gospel of the kingdom which Jesus preached, and His Apostles preached is not being preached today but the main stream Church.

The high power preachers of today may talk a bit about the kingdom, and many people including myself thought I knew about the kingdom. However when the Boss got my attention I realized I had a lot to learn about what His kingdom was all about, and how absolutely necessary it is for His people to share the good news of the kingdom of God.

Why? Because it is the only viable remedy for this corruption of this world we live in.

I also contend that many men and women in the pulpit enjoy building a following where they are the King. They like all the benefits of their being King.

Oh! These preachers may not realize this but if you investigate you will find that most of the Big Time ministries fall into this category.

The Bible declares there is only one true King!

Jesus Christ of Nazareth!

Salvation

One time my pastor taught on receiving more favor from God. It was the title of his newly published book. The subject puzzled me so I made an appointment to see him.

When I met with him I told him that each morning I look into the mirror and say, “Thankyou Lord! You saved me from an eternal Hell and torment into eternal glory and joy ! All I have to do is accept your free gift by grace.”

How can I get any more favor than this? I have been blessed with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ. How can I receive more?

He looked at me, laughed, scratched his head, and said, Wow!

It was a short visit.

When I was saved, I became a masterpiece, a one of a kind creature, created by God unto good works which were ordained before the foundation of the world.

What does this mean to me? To me this means I have to know my Boss, and my ear needs to be tuned to His voice, my eyes need to see what He wants me to see, so that He may empower me and lead me into those good works He would have me accomplish for Him.

Many times He gives me a desire to accomplish something, and when I move by His nudging, I begin to realize that it is He who motivated and empowered me. He gets all the glory. I am merely His workmanship and His workman.

Without a cooperation with the Boss in any church, there is nothing left but fleshly role playing, which I really have a hard time handling. This is why when asked, “What church do you attend?” My answer is usually, I am an ambassador at large to the body of Christ and as such I attend any church I where I am led. I belong to the Body of Christ and I am growing into my rightful place in the Kingdom of the Lord.

We were created to serve Him, and if we are truly serving Him, we must commune and cooperate with our Boss.
