Are not we all that one bread
Do Christians know who they are? Or not we all that one body? Or not we all that one bread? The Lord's Supper Passover and breaking his bread and the one Cup blood of the new covenant.
Romans 12;4 For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: (Note> Or other things to say about the body of Christ. I'am the foot let me walk a while.
And when one of them that sat at meat with him heard these things, he said unto him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God.
Corinthians 10:17 For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread. Note but we are no good if we are not broken and others hear what we have to say. Let your prophets speak two or three and if any thing be revealed to one that sits by let the first hold his peace, (Now days every one who wants to be a preacher wants to be the Pastor, the one who collects the money. "Yea, Lets build this church large.")
Paul> 17 In the following directives I have no praise for you, for your meetings do more harm than good. 18 In the first place, I hear that when you come together as a church, (not building) there are divisions among you, and to some extent I believe it. 19 No doubt there have to be differences among you to show which of you have God's approval. 20 When you come together, it is not the Lord's Supper you eat, 21 for as you eat, each of you goes ahead without waiting for anybody else. One remains hungry, another gets drunk. 22 Don't you have homes to eat and drink in? Or do you despise the church of God. NIV/ (Note> " not a building") and humiliate those who have nothing? What shall I say to you? Shall I praise you for this? Certainly not!
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 ("Note and Kingdom") until he comes." Note >("Until he comes" indcates new second phase in my fathers Kingdom after all that is bad is removed.) He himself will be there and with us. There will be no need for a Temple, Sun or Moon in that City for God and the lamb will be the light of the city.)
27 Therefore, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. 28 A man ought to examine himself before he eats of the bread and drinks of the cup. 29 For anyone who eats and drinks without recognizing the body of the Lord eats and drinks judgment on himself. 30 That is why many among you are weak and sick, and a number of you have fallen asleep.(Died) 31 But if we judged ourselves, we would not come under judgment. 32 When we are judged by the Lord, we are being disciplined so that we will not be condemned with the world.
Now what is (without recognizing the body of the Lord ) > Would it not be each other?
33 So then, my brothers, when you come together to eat, wait for each other. 34 If anyone is hungry, he should eat at home, so that when you meet together it may not result in judgment. (Note hungry indicates it not a big Supper, but a remembrance of his death tell he comes. And when I come I will give further directions. ( Wonder what they were?1 Corinthians 10:17
17 For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread. (Now are you going to share that bread?) Will it it remain one loaf of bread? The Testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. When the so called church don't let their people share this bread they are quenching the Spirit in one another. When you have a program in advance when the Spirit moves on the people they must sat there tell you are finished with last weeks program when god is finished with it. Pastors and Elders talk till they are blue in the face and never realize there or other parts in the body of like (people)., Let them speak two or three, the spirits of the prophets or subject to one another. Show me a church like that!! They are bread also that we need to grow to perfection.Who is the man that has the word of wisdom let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the churchs!! Is there liberty in your gatherings or does someone else have full control. How about being lead of the spirit what does that mean? I'am afraid God is going to judge us for desiring special favors from the goverments of the world. We or in the world but not of the world. Beware of the bread of the pharaise.
Matthew 26:26-28 (New International Version)
26 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, "Take and eat; this is my body."
27 Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you. 28 This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. (A good picture would be it became twelve cups, it divided or enlarged its self.) then 3000 then to all that are called. See Luke 14:17
Divide it among you.
17 After taking the cup, he gave thanks and said, "Take this and divide it among you. 18 For I tell you I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes." ( As soon as he rose from the dead the new covenant was in force.) "Question do you think he drinks it with us when we have our little commune. Or will he wait tell he comes again. Is it a rememberance thing now? But will he literaly show up and drink it with us? "Yes" and now he is with us in the Spirit Only for we know him no longer after the flesh but the Spirit. Rom 8:5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
19 And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me." ( In other words break what I have given to you and freely give to others.) Note> When your group shuts out others from this breaking of bread "you have closed doors." So your bread it is like the bread of the Pharisees.
Be not forgetful to entertain strangers for some have entertained angels unaware.
Hebrews 13:2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. (The angels don't have this bread that we have).20 In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you. (When you come together, it is not the Lord's Supper you eat, but your own. Let us be careful that we know what the body of Christ is. It is People!!. So let them break the bread Jesus gave them. It is more than eating a piece Of bread and drinking juice from a plastic cup. His words were Spirit and they were life.
Here is the Key to the communion of the body of Christ (I Cor. 10:16)
I Cor. 10:16 The cup of blessing, (figurative,) The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? (Paul meant the teaching of the Gospel.)
In the NT. it is used most frequently of the sufferings of Christ, Matt. 20:22, 23; 26:39; Mark 10:38, 39; 14:36; Luke 22:42; John 18:11; also of the evil deeds of Babylon, Rev. 14:10
Luke 22:15 And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:
"This cup is the new testament in my blood" (1 Corinthians 11:25). Since there is only one New Testament, it is necessary to infer that there should be only one cup, which represents it. If they did not observe the supper there, then where? In their homes (Acts 2:46). Divide it" 3000 first day of Pentecost Answer: It is debatable whether the cup of Luke 22:17 has anything to do with the Lord's supper. Many commentaries say that it pertains to the Passover instead of the supper. Even if it refers to the Lord's supper, the contents of the cup can be divided by all drinking from the cup. "Divide" is the only word in Luke's account that can correspond to the word "drink" in Matthew and Mark's accounts. Therefore, we must conclude that "divide" means "drink" in Luke's account. 3000 drink the first day it was poured out, after the many drink and ate his body, Jesus said unless you eat my body and drink my blood you have no part with me.
