The Lord's Supper is not Passover. One is a shadow of things to come.

I read about someone who teaches the Lord's Supper should only be celebrated at Passover -- once per year.

I have heard of once per day or even multiple times per day.

What is biblical?

The time schedule for observing Communion is not biblically stated.

Jesus simply said 'when you do this do it in rememberance of me'.

One may celebrate Communion whenever they so desire.

What one is doing by observing Communion is remembering Jesus until he returns.

The Last Supper (the Mass) is the successor to the Passover, but the two are not alike in all respects, true.

The Bible places no limit on the times that people may receive Communion. The Catholic Church had an internal rule for centuries that limited people to one Comnunion per day. This rule was relaxed to twice a day in recent years, the 1970s or 80s. Priests, who are required to receive Communion at every Mass they say, are limited to how many Masses they can say in a day. This varies from place to place and from religious order to religious order.

There is such a thing as spiritual gluttony, wherein a person figured he can grow very rapidly in the spiritual life by feverishly saying prayers or doing certain works, and if Catholics weren't limited to two Comnunions a day, some of them would be in church all day, adking some priest to give them another Communion Wafer every ten minutes, and some misguided overzealous priests would spend their whole waking time saying Mass after Mass after Mass, and neglecting their other duties. So the Church has set some limits.

Good question and it causes us to apply Acts 17:11.

The Passover is a shadow of things to come. The Lord's Supper is a fulfillment through 'the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world.' Yet it also is a shadow of things to come as the Lord said that He would not partake of it until He returns again in His kingdom. If someone wants to do this only one time a year, I think they are truly missing out on the most wonderful experience of worshipping the Lord as His body on earth & being reminded often of our hope of His return & of our need to 'proclaim His death until He comes again.'

Lk 22:15-19 And He said to them, “I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before My suffering. For I tell you that I will NOT eat it again until it is FULFILLED in the kingdom of God.”After taking the cup, He gave thanks and said, “Take this and divide it among yourselves. 18For I tell you that I will not drink of the fruit of the vine from now on UNTIL THE KINGDOM OF GOD COMES.” 19And He took the 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.”

Mt 26:27-30 Then he took a cup & when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. I tell you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine FROM NOW ON UNTIL I DRINK IT ANEW--WITH YOU--IN MY FATHER'S KINGDOM." When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.

Mk 14:23-25 Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, He gave it to them, and they all drank from it. "This is my blood of thec covenant, which is poured out for many,” he said to them. Truly I tell you, I will no longer drink of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it anew in the kingdom of God." When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.

Lk 22:28-30 You are the ones who have stood by Me in My trials. 29And I bestow on you a kingdom, just as My Father has bestowed on Me, so that you may eat & drink at My table in My kingdom & sit on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

Mt 19:28 Jesus said to them, "Truly I tell you, in the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on His glorious throne, you who have followed Me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

I Cor 11:17-34 In the following directives I have no praise for you, FOR YOUR MEETINGS DO MORE HARM THAN GOOD. 18In the first place, I hear that WHEN YOU COME TOGETHER AS A CHURCH, there are DIVISIONS AMONG YOU & to some extent I believe it. 19No doubt there have to be differences among you to show which of you have God’s approval. 20So then, WHEN YOU COME TOGETHER, it is NOT the Lord’s Supper you eat, 21for when you are eating, some of you go ahead with your own private suppers. As a result, one person REMAINS HUNGRY & ANOTHER GETS DRUNK. 22Don’t you have homes to eat & drink in? Or do you despise THE CHURCH OF GOD by humiliating those who have nothing? What shall I say to you? Shall I praise you? Certainly not in this matter!

For I received FROM THE LORD what I also DELIVERED TO YOU, that the Lord Jesus on the night when He was betrayed took bread & when He had given thanks, He broke it & said, “This is My body, which is for you. DO THIS IN REMEMBRANCE OF ME.” In the same way also He took the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the NEW COVENANT IN MY BLOOD.

DO THIS, AS OFTEN as you drink it, IN REMEMBRANCE OF ME.” FOR AS OFTEN as you eat this bread & drink the cup, you PROCLAIM THE LORD'S DEATH UNTIL HE COME.

So then, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an UNWORTHY MANNER will be guilty of sinning against the body & blood of the Lord. 28Everyone ought to examine themselves before they eat of the bread & drink from the cup. 29For those who eat & drink without discerning the body eat & drink judgment on themselves. 30That is why many among you are weak & sick & a number of you have fallen asleep. 31But if we were more discerning with regard TO OURSELVES, we would not come under such judgment. 32Nevertheless, when we are judged in this way by the Lord, we are being disciplined so that we will not be finally condemned with the world.

When those who followed Christ in Corinth, met together in a meeting, as His body, the church, the assembly of called out ones--when the saints met together regularly for their meetings, they celebrated the Lord's Supper. They were a mix of Gentile & Jewish believers & if they were typical of those at that time, they normally met together weekly. This would fit in with the repetition of: 'as OFTEN as you eat this bread & drink the cup.'

During the time of their meeting and sharing together the Lord's Supper and a meal, they were instructed by the Lord Himself--through Paul--who received it & delivered these instructions to them when they celebrated the Lord's Supper.
1) Wait for one another & not divide into different separate groups--the weekly meeting with the other saints, the body of Christ, is a meeting together as one in Christ.
2) Share with one another, especially if someone was poor & didn't have anything.
3) Discern between the meal and the Lord's Supper
4) Don't get drunk in the meal & then participate in the Lord's Supper
5) All were to examine themselves first, discerning how each was treating other members in the Body of Christ & in their attitude toward taking the Lord's Supper
6) After examination, then all may participate in the Lord's Supper as the body of Christ, after their meal. As OFTEN as we do this together as the Body of Christ, we as one body are proclaiming the Lord's death on the cross for the forgiveness of sins--and reminding ourselves each time we do it--that the Lord is coming back again, hallelujah, to take us into His and His Father's kingdom, where we will share it together at His table! Amen!
7) Without discerning the these things above, people in the body of Christ may come under the judgment of the Lord due to their sinning as described above, in terms of experiencing physical illness & in severe cases of sin, physical death.

Ellicott's Commentary For English Readers

1 Cor 11:30 is a parenthesis & 1 Cor 11:31 re-opens with this same verb. The force of the passage is, “He who eats & drinks without discerning the Body (i.e., the Church) in that assembly, eats and drinks a judgment to himself; for if we would discern ourselves we should not be judged.” There are some important points to be borne in mind regarding this interpretation of the passage. (1) The Greek word, which we render “discerning,” “discern,” signifies to arrive at a right estimate of the character or quality of a thing.

(conclusion)


(2) The fault which St. Paul was condemning was the practice which the Corinthians had fallen into of regarding these gatherings as opportunities for individual indulgence, and not as Church assemblies. They did not rightly estimate such gatherings as being corporate meetings; they did not rightly estimate themselves as not now isolated individuals, but members of the common Body. They ought to discern in these meetings of the Church a body; they ought to discern in themselves parts of a body. Not only is this interpretation, I venture to think, the most accurate and literal interpretation of the Greek, but it is the only view which seems to me to make the passage bear intelligibly on the point which St. Paul is considering, and the real evil which he seeks to counteract.

(3) To refer these words directly or indirectly to the question of a physical presence in the Lord’s Supper, is to divorce them violently from their surroundings & context & to make them allude to some evil for which the explicit & practical remedy commended in 1 Cor 11:33-34 would be no remedy at all. Moreover. if the word “body” means the Lord’s physical body, surely the word “Lord’s” would have been added & the words, “and the blood,” for the non-recognition of the blood would be just as great an offence. Here only the body is mentioned.

(4) St. Paul never uses the word “body” in reference to our Lord’s physical body, without some clear indication that such is meant. (See Rom 7:4; Phil 3:21; Col 1:22.) On the other hand, the use of the word “Body,” or “Body of Christ,” meaning the Church, is frequent. We have had it but a few verses before, in reference to this very subject (1Cor 10:16). It is also to be found in Rom 12:5; Eph 1:22; 5:23,30.

Acts 2:41-47 So those who received his word were baptized, and there were added that day about three thousand souls. And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And awed came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. 44And all who believed were together and had all things in common. 45And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. 46And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, 47praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.

Often the body of believers in Christ at this time in Acts & evidently at the time of the writing of I Cor 11, WHEN they met together for a meeting, they often shared a meal together & afterwards shared the Lord's Supper & had a time of worship in the midst of those. Some may not have this situation in an institutional type of setting. I have been involved in both settings over the years & enjoy the one with the worship time, meal & Lord's Supper together each week, as the body of Christ COMING TOGETHER to share in these things in a worthy manner.

To receive the Body and Blood of Christ unworthily---what does that mean? First, only the baptized may worthily receive Communion. Persons involved in a heresy or schism should not receive Communion. Persons not fasting before Communion may not worthily receive Communion, if a fasting rule is in effect (in today's Church the fast is for one hour before Communion---before about 1953 the rule was fasting from midnight---at different times and places different rules have been in effect about this). And no one may worthily receive Communion if he has committed a mortal sin, until that person has gone to Confession.

According to present rules no one may receive more than twice a day.

Any Communion made against these rules is an unworthy reception of the Holy Eucharist, a "bad Communion" we call it in the Catholic Church, a very grave mortal sin. Sometimes a non-Catholic will attend a Mass and, not knowing that they are not supposed to receive Communion, will anyway. Since they didn't know any better, this is not a sin for them.

If the bread and wine is not truly the actual literal living Body and Blood of Christ, as St. Paul affirmed that it was, then there would be no unworthy Communions or any guilt over the Body and Blood of Christ. St. Paul would not have bothered to say anything about it if Communion were just a symbol. If it were just a symbol, who cares who receives and who not?

The Holy Eucharist, if withheld from non-Catholics as it is supposed to be, becomes a powerful evangelistic tool. It gives non-Catholics an incentive to convert. Persons undergoing instruction in the Catholic faith look with great longing for the day of their Baptism, so that they too can receive Jesus in Holy Communion.

The Lord's Supper is Passover Seder, and is done yearly. Yahshua was speaking TO Jews when He said as 'oft [often meaning - 'when' in Hebrew structure] you do this...remember Me [His sacrifice].

People often incorrectly read-in the modern term for often which means 'many times'.

The Catholic Church's understanding is that Mass should be said daily, with an opportunity for the people to come every day if they want.

Doesn't the Bible tell us that "The Lord's Supper" was at the celebration of Passover of the Jews?

Since there was no such as Christians during the time of Jesus and "The Lord's Supper" isn't it permissible for Christians to honor "The Lord" whenever they choose to?

You want scripture? I refer you to Matthew 6:11 and Acts 2:46-47. Also, if you will check the history of Christianity, you will see that as far back as we have records the early Christians met daily for Mass and Communion, often in private homes, as Acts 2:46-47 relates. Also see the writings of Ignatius of Antioch, maryred circa 110 a.d.

Slowly, Lud... In your reference to scripture...

What exactly is it in the scripture that you cite that pinpoints what you are citing that specific scripture to refer to. Why,in your own words (not some RCC rhetoric or mantra) do you believe the scrioture you cite supports what you believe.

Are you still with me here?

Read the passages I cited and see what they say.

And whenever you read from, study, or quote the Bible, remember that the Bible came from the Catholic Church.

Someone has suggested the Lord's Supper be taken only once a year, because it is actually the Passover meal. I believe this is incorrect for multiple reasons & actually distorts & changes what Jesus Himself commanded. Thus, this is a serious matter.

When Jesus had the Passover meal with His disciples, He changed both the format & the meaning of it. It became known as the Lord's Supper NOT the Passover meal. It was part of the Love Feast mentioned in early Christian history, as we see in I Corinthians 11. This was almost 25 years AFTER Christ's resurrection & this same Lord's Supper was being celebrated in a predominately Gentile congregation. And Paul said 'THIS CELEBRATION' was received by him from Christ Himself & passed on to the Corinthian believers as Christ taught it.

Why It Should NOT Be Confused with the Passover Meal.

1) Jesus said you do this unique, special supper IN REMEMBRANCE OF HIM NOW--NOT in remembrance of the Jews deliverance from Egypt & the judgment of the Death angel (for those without the shed blood of the unblemished Passover lamb marked on their lintel & door posts (forming a cross). It was a totally NEW meal focusing on Christ & His once for all time sacrifice. Paul repeated this phrase TWICE--as Jesus did Himself--to emphasize it & its uniqueness.

The old sacrifices brought sins continually to remembrance (Heb 10:1, 3) & yearly they had to have Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, to COVER sins committed so God could dwell in their midst but not full remission & forgiveness. It had to be repeated. The Lord's Supper brings to remembrance Christ & His sacrifice once for all time for the full & final remission of sins. It is NOT to be repeated as some also erroneously teach. Christ is not continually sacrificed again & again like the Old Covenant sacrifices of the Levitical priesthood but did it ONE TIME FOR ALL TIME.

I Pet 3:18 For Christ also died for sins ONCE for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the Spirit.

Heb 9:24-28 For Christ did not enter a sanctuary made with human hands that was only a copy of the true one; He entered heaven itself, now to appear for us in God’s presence. Nor did He enter heaven to OFFER HIMSELF AGAIN & AGAIN, the way the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood that is not his own. Otherwise Christ would have had to SUFFER MANY TIMES SINCE THE CREATION OF THE WORLD! But He has APPEARED ONCE FOR ALL AT THE CULMINATION OF THE AGES TO DO AWAY WITH SIN BY THE SACRIFICE [singular] OF HIMSELF. In the same way [just] as people are destined to die ONCE & after that to face judgment, SO ALOS CHRIST WAS SACRIFIED ONCE to take away the sins of many & He will appear a 2ND time, NOT TO BEAR SIN, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for Him.

2) This special Lord's Supper was instituted by Christ Himself, thus it was called THE LORD'S SUPPER in Scripture. He gave certain commands on how to perform it. It was not a repetition of the Passover meal. It was new & unique & meant specifically for those who faithfully followed Him NOT Moses.

3) This special meal emphasizes the New Covenant NOT the Old Covenant. This New Covenant was mediated & ratified with the once for all time sacrifice of the Lord & Lamb of God, Who alone takes away the sin of the world. This was not any lamb's blood but the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, unblemished by sin but died for sin, as a substitutionary death for all who repent & follow Him.

Heb 9:19,20 When Moses had proclaimed every command of the law to all the people, he took the blood OF CALVES, together with water, scarlet wool & branches of hyssop & sprinkled the scroll & all the people. He said, “This is THE BLOOD OF THE COVENANT, which God has commanded YOU [Israelites] TO KEEP. [Ex 24:8]

Heb 12:22-25 But U have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. U have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. U have come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, to Jesus the MEDIATOR OF A NEW COVENANT & to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.

4) The NT (the gospel accounts of the Lord's Supper) & I Corinthians 11 were written in Greek NOT Hebrew & the Greek language is very precise as to what 'oft' means. It does not mean 'WHEN' or is NOT translated 'when' anytime it is used in the NT. It is translated OFTEN! Oft is the Elizabethan English for 'often'.

The KJV translates Strong's G3740 in the following manner: hosákis, hos-ak'-is; MULTIPLE adverb from G3739; how many times as (i.e. with G302, so); —as oft(-en) as. as often as (with G302) (1x), as often as (with G1437) (1x), as oft as (with G302) (1x).

Ps 78:40  How oft did they provoke him in the wilderness, and grieve him in the desert!

Did the unbelieving Israeli generation provoke God to anger only once? Obviously not but many times!

Matt 9:14  Then came to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we & the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not?

Did the Pharisees fast once a year? Obviously not! They fasted at least once per week.

Matt 17:15  Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick & sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire & oft into the water.

Did the son only fall in the fire & the water once? Obviously not!

Matt 18:21  Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?

Peter makes it clear that the 'oft' here is a brother sinning against him that needs forgiveness

Mark 7:3  For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders.

Acts 26:11  And I punished them oft in every synagogue, and compelled them to blaspheme; and being exceedingly mad against them, I persecuted them even unto strange cities.

Did Paul punish Christians in only one synogogue once a year? Obviously not.

1Cor 11:25  After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.

It becomes abundantly clear that oft means as often as you partake of the Lord's Supper. This was also tied in with their weekly meetings and love feast afterwards when they gathered together, so it was AT LEAST as often as once per week.

2Cor 11:23  Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool) I am more; in labours more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft.

2Tim 1:16  The Lord give mercy unto the house of Onesiphorus; for he oft refreshed me, and was not ashamed of my chain.

Did Onesiphorus refresh Paul only once per year? Obviously not!

Heb 6:7  For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God.

Did God only allow the rain to come one time and only once a year? Obviously not!

The Bible describes itself as spiritual food — the water, milk, bread, and meat of our spiritual lives. It’s everything you need for sustenance.

Lud, 'The Lord's Supper'is spiritual, not physical.

As Paul states (paraphrasing) 'The more I eat of God's sustenance the hungrier I get for more.'

Quote from brashdoc:
Someone has suggested the Lord's Supper be taken only once a year, because it is actually the Passover meal. I believe this is incorrect for multiple reasons & actually distorts & changes what Jesus Himself commanded. Thus, this is a serious matter.

When Jesus had the Passover meal with His disciples, He changed both the format & the meaning of it. It became known as the Lord's Supper NOT the Passover meal. It was part of the Love Feast mentioned in early Christian history, as we see in I Corinthians 11. This was almost 25 years AFTER Christ's resurrection & this same Lord's Supper was being celebrated in a predominately Gentile congregation. And Paul said 'THIS CELEBRATION' was received by him from Christ Himself & passed on to the Corinthian believers as Christ taught it.

Why It Should NOT Be Confused with the Passover Meal.

1) Jesus said you do this unique, special supper IN REMEMBRANCE OF HIM NOW--NOT in remembrance of the Jews deliverance from Egypt & the judgment of the Death angel (for those without the shed blood of the unblemished Passover lamb marked on their lintel & door posts (forming a cross). It was a totally NEW meal focusing on Christ & His once for all time sacrifice. Paul repeated this phrase TWICE--as Jesus did Himself--to emphasize it & its uniqueness.

The old sacrifices brought sins continually to remembrance (Heb 10:1, 3) & yearly they had to have Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, to COVER sins committed so God could dwell in their midst but not full remission & forgiveness. It had to be repeated. The Lord's Supper brings to remembrance Christ & His sacrifice once for all time for the full & final remission of sins. It is NOT to be repeated as some also erroneously teach. Christ is not continually sacrificed again & again like the Old Covenant sacrifices of the Levitical priesthood but did it ONE TIME FOR ALL TIME.

I Pet 3:18 For Christ also died for sins ONCE for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the Spirit.

Heb 9:24-28 For Christ did not enter a sanctuary made with human hands that was only a copy of the true one; He entered heaven itself, now to appear for us in God’s presence. Nor did He enter heaven to OFFER HIMSELF AGAIN & AGAIN, the way the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood that is not his own. Otherwise Christ would have had to SUFFER MANY TIMES SINCE THE CREATION OF THE WORLD! But He has APPEARED ONCE FOR ALL AT THE CULMINATION OF THE AGES TO DO AWAY WITH SIN BY THE SACRIFICE [singular] OF HIMSELF. In the same way [just] as people are destined to die ONCE & after that to face judgment, SO ALOS CHRIST WAS SACRIFIED ONCE to take away the sins of many & He will appear a 2ND time, NOT TO BEAR SIN, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for Him.

2) This special Lord's Supper was instituted by Christ Himself, thus it was called THE LORD'S SUPPER in Scripture. He gave certain commands on how to perform it. It was not a repetition of the Passover meal. It was new & unique & meant specifically for those who faithfully followed Him NOT Moses.

3) This special meal emphasizes the New Covenant NOT the Old Covenant. This New Covenant was mediated & ratified with the once for all time sacrifice of the Lord & Lamb of God, Who alone takes away the sin of the world. This was not any lamb's blood but the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, unblemished by sin but died for sin, as a substitutionary death for all who repent & follow Him.

Heb 9:19,20 When Moses had proclaimed every command of the law to all the people, he took the blood OF CALVES, together with water, scarlet wool & branches of hyssop & sprinkled the scroll & all the people. He said, “This is THE BLOOD OF THE COVENANT, which God has commanded YOU [Israelites] TO KEEP. [Ex 24:8]

Heb 12:22-25 But U have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. U have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. U have come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, to Jesus the MEDIATOR OF A NEW COVENANT & to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.

4) The NT (the gospel accounts of the Lord's Supper) & I Corinthians 11 were written in Greek NOT Hebrew & the Greek language is very precise as to what 'oft' means. It does not mean 'WHEN' or is NOT translated 'when' anytime it is used in the NT. It is translated OFTEN! Oft is the Elizabethan English for 'often'.

The KJV translates Strong's G3740 in the following manner: hosákis, hos-ak'-is; MULTIPLE adverb from G3739; how many times as (i.e. with G302, so); —as oft(-en) as. as often as (with G302) (1x), as often as (with G1437) (1x), as oft as (with G302) (1x).

Ps 78:40  How oft did they provoke him in the wilderness, and grieve him in the desert!

Did the unbelieving Israeli generation provoke God to anger only once? Obviously not but many times!

Matt 9:14  Then came to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we & the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not?

Did the Pharisees fast once a year? Obviously not! They fasted at least once per week.

Matt 17:15  Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick & sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire & oft into the water.

Did the son only fall in the fire & the water once? Obviously not!

Matt 18:21  Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?

Peter makes it clear that the 'oft' here is a brother sinning against him that needs forgiveness

Mark 7:3  For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders.

Acts 26:11  And I punished them oft in every synagogue, and compelled them to blaspheme; and being exceedingly mad against them, I persecuted them even unto strange cities.

Did Paul punish Christians in only one synogogue once a year? Obviously not.

1Cor 11:25  After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.

It becomes abundantly clear that oft means as often as you partake of the Lord's Supper. This was also tied in with their weekly meetings and love feast afterwards when they gathered together, so it was AT LEAST as often as once per week.

2Cor 11:23  Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool) I am more; in labours more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft.

2Tim 1:16  The Lord give mercy unto the house of Onesiphorus; for he oft refreshed me, and was not ashamed of my chain.

Did Onesiphorus refresh Paul only once per year? Obviously not!

Heb 6:7  For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God.

Did God only allow the rain to come one time and only once a year? Obviously not!

Lud's Cannibal Version LCV
I tell you, I will not drink my blood from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom."




1 Corinthians 11:26
For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes.


And if you quote the single verse in John 6:55 (to build a doctrine out of it), don't forget John 6:47-63.

John 6:47-63 proves that the Catholic belief about the Holy Eucharist is true, that It is truly Jesus's Body and Blood. It is a beautiful way to love and adore Jesus, and, if received with the right disposition, It is greatly conducive to spiritual growth.

Jesus Christ, alive and in person, in the Holy Eucharist.

You make the Lord and even all Believers to be cannibals. Re-read my post and the bible verses (before the last one).

Perhaps you see no problem with being a cannibal, so you have no interest in investigating this claim.

DOES THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF CHRIST HAS TO BE SPILLED OVER AND OVER AGAIN TO ATONE FOR OUR SINS??

The Apostle Peter wrote in I Peter 1:17-19: For you know it was not with perishable things such as silver and gold that you were **REDEEMED** from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the **PRECIOUS BLOOD OF CHRIST**, a Lamb without blemish or defect!!

Isaiah 53:5,6: But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and **BY HIS WOUNDS WE ARE HEALED**. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all!!

I Peter 2:24,25: He Himself bore our sins in his body on a tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness, **BY HIS WOUNDS WE ARE HEALED!. For you were like sheep going astray , but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls!

The apostle John wrote in I John 2:1,2: But if anybody does sin, we have One who speaks in our defense--Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. **HE IS THE ATONING SACRIFICE FOR OUR SINS**. And not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world!

I John 4:10: This is love; not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son as **AN ATONING SACRIFICE FOR OUR SINS**!

Revelation 22:16,18,19: "I, Jesus. have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the Churches.... I warn everyone who hears the words of this prophecy of this Book: If anyone *ADDS* anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this Book {Including **ETERNAL HELL**} And if anyone **TAKES WORDS AWAY** from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the Tree of Life and in the Holy City {The New Jerusalem}, which are described in this book."

Revelation 1:5: From Jesus Christ, to Him who loves and has **FREED US FROM OUR SINS BY HIS BLOOD**!! Which follow Jesus only and Ludlow totally disagree with and commits the unpardonable sin of **TAKING WORDS AWAY** from the book of Revelation!!

Revelation 5:9: "You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, because You were slain and **WITH YOUR BLOOD** purchased men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation!!"

Ephesians 1:3-8; 11; 19-23: Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with **EVERY** spiritual blessing in Christ. For He chose us in Him before the creation of the world to be holy and **BLAMELESS** in His sight. In love He predestined us to be adopted as His sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will--to the praise of His **GLORIOUS GRACE**, which He has freely given us in the One He loves. In Him we have **REDEMPTION THROUGH HIS BLOOD**, the forgiveness of sins. in accordance the riches of God's grace that He lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding.....In Him we were also **CHOSEN** having been predestined according to the plan of Him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of His will!!.....That power is like the working of His mighty strength, which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the **PRESENT AGE** but also in the one to come. And God paced **ALL THINGS** under His feet and appointed Him {Not a pope}to be the ***HEAD*** over everything for the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills everything in every way!!

Ephesians 2:4-10: Because of His great love for us, God,, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions--it is **BY GRACE** you have been saved! And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages He might show the incomparble riches of His grace, expressed in His kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is **BY GRACE** you have been saved, through faith-- and this **NOT FROM YOURSELVES, it is the **GIFT** of God--**NOT BY WORKS**, so that no one can boast. For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do!

Ephesians 6:7,8: Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men, because you know that the Lord will **REWARD** everyone for whatever good he does!

SALVATION IS 100 PERCENT FREE AND REWARDS ARE 100 PERCENT EARNED!!

Jesus said, in the sixth chapter of John, that we must eat His Body and drink His Blood if we are to have life in us. The Jews protested.

"Master, this is a hard saying."

Do you think Jesus' words are too hard here?

I strongly recommend the sixth chapter of John for all to read.

Yahshua is the Passover lamb. NO difference. Blood on the door post they escaped the death angel, Yahshua's shed blood allows death to pass over us.

NOwhere in YHVH God's word does Yahshua say or indicate it is a NEW meal. You like Lud are creating things that simple are NOT biblical.

NOwhere does Yahshua indicare Passover as once a week. He DID NOT take Passover seder with Gentiles...only Jews ONCE a year.

Just as Paul did not have the authority to change Passover, neither do you.

Jesus changed everything. He repealed the Levitical law. He ended the old covenant and began the new covenant. He founded the Catholic Church and modeled it after the Jewish Synagogue. He instituted the holy sacrifice of the Mass, which the Passover prefigured.

The Mass is different from its predecessor the Passover in many ways. The Passover was to be done once a year, but Nesus made it clear that Mass was to be offered every day when He said, "Give us this daily bread" (some translations say "Give us this day our supersubstantial bread").

**ARE DREAMS VISIONS AND REVELATIONS FROM GOD STILL NEEDED**??

Revelation 1:1-3: The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants what must take place. He made it known by sending His angel to His servant John, who testifies to everything he saw--that is, the **WORD OF GOD** and the testimony of Jesus Christ. Blessed is the one who reads the **WORDS OF THIS PROPHECY**, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it!!

Revelation 22:16,18,19: "I, Jesus have sent My angel to give this testimony for the churches... I warn everyone who reads the words of this prophecy of this book. If anyone **ADDS** anything to them God will add to him the plagues described in this book. And if anyone **TAKES WORDS AWAY** from this book of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the Tree of Life and in the Holy City, which are described in this book!!"

I Corinthians 13:8-10: But where are there are prophecies, they will **CEASE**, where there are tongues, they will be **STILLED*; .. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when **COMPLETENESS COMES**, what is in part *DISAPPEARS!!

Before the New covenant was **COMPLETED** with Revelation in AD 96 there was a need for the early church to have dreams, visions and revelations from God. Once the perfect Word of God was completed and distributed to all the churches there was no longer any need for dreams, visions and revelations from God; since God's Perfect Word **ANSWERS EVERY QUESTION AND PROBLEM WE MAY HAVE**!!

**JESUS SAYS, "MY MOTHER AND BROTHERS ARE THOSE WHO HEARS **GOD'S WORD** AND **PUTS IT INTO PRACTICE**!" {Luke 8:21}

Psalm 119 has 176 verses praising the Word of God. The Old Testament had 613 laws and the New Covenant of Jesus and His love has about 400 commands which Psalm 119 also applies to. Some of my favorite verses is Psalm 119 are:

119:105: Your Word is a Lamp to my feet and a Light for my path.
119:97: Oh how I love your law, I meditate on it all day long.
119:148: My eyes stay open through the watches of the night, that I meditate on your promises.
119:164: Seven times a day I praise you for your righteous laws.
119:16: All your Words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal.
119:169: Give me understanding according to your Word.
119:2: Blessed are those who keep His statues and seek Him with all your heart.
119:11: I have hidden your Word in my heart that I might not sin against You.
119:28: Strengthen me according to your Word.

Deut 18:17-19: The Lord says, "I will raise up for them a Prophet like you from among their brothers; I will put My words in His mouth, and He will tell them everything I command Him. If anyone does not listen to My words that the Prophet speaks in My Name, I Myself will call Him to account."

John 14:23,24: Jesus says, "If anyone loves Me, He will **OBEY MY TEACHING**! My Father will love Him, and we will come to him and make Our home with him. He who does not love Me will not obey My teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent Me."

**GOD'S WORD** {CONTINUED}

THE GREAT COMMISSION: Matthew 28:18-20: Jesus says, “All authority in heaven and on *EARTH has been given to Me {Not some RC Pope}. Therefore go and make disciples of *ALL NATIONS*...teaching them to **OBEY EVERYTHING** I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very *END OF THE AGE*!”

I Peter 1:23-25: You have been **BORN AGAIN THROUGH THE LIVING AND ENDURING **WORD OF GOD**!! All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field, the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the **WORD OF THE LORD STANDS FOREVER**. And this is the **WORD** that was preached to you.

Matthew 24:35: Jesus says, Heaven and earth will pass away, but **MY WORDS WILL NEVER PASS AWAY**!"

I John 2:3-5: We know we have come to know Him {Jesus} if we obey His commands. The man who says, "I know Him," but does not do what He commands is a liar and the truth is not in him. But if anyone **OBEYS HIS WORD**, God's love is truly made complete in him!

Matthew 4:4: Jesus says, "Man does not live on bread alone, but on **EVERY WORD FROM THE MOUTH OF GOD**!"

Matthew 7:24,26: Jesus says, "Everyone who hears these **WORDS OF MINE** and **PUTS THEM INTO PRACTICE** is like a wise man who built his house on a Rock... But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand."

Luke 8:21: Jesus says, "My mother and brothers are those who hears **GOD'S WORD** and **PUTS THEM INTO PRACTICE!**"

James 1:22,25: Do not merely listen to the **WORD**, and so deceive yourselves. **DO WHAT IT SAYS**... The man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, **BUT DOING IT**, he will be blessed in what he does.

Matthew 13:23: Jesus says, "But the one who received the seed that fell on good soil is the man who hears the **WORD AND UNDERSTANDS IT**. He produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown."

John 15:1,2,5,16: Jesus says, "I am the True Vine and my Father is the Gardener. He cuts off every branch in Me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit He prunes so that it will be even more fruitful!... This is to my Father's glory that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be My disciples!... You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit--fruit that will last!"

Luke 8:15: Jesus says, "But the seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the **WORD**, retain it, and by perseverance produce a crop."

**SALVATION IS 100% FREE WHILE ETERNAL REWARDS ARE 100% EARNED**

**JESUS WILL GIVE COUNTLESS ETERNAL REWARDS AND TREASURES AND CROWNS IN HEAVEN
TO ALL OF HIS SAINTS ACCORDING TO WHAT HE HAS DONE**!!

**SALVATION IS 100% FREE**

Titus 3:3,4: At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved
by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated
and hating one another. But when the kindness and **LOVE** of God our Savior
appeared , He saved us, **NOT BECAUSE OF RIGHTEOUS THINGS WE HAD DONE**, but
because of **HIS MERCY**!!

John 1:12,13: To all who received Him, to those who believed in His name, he
gave the right to become children of God--children born not of natural descent,
**NOR OF A HUMAN DECISION** or a husband's will but, **BORN OF GOD**!!

John 6:37,39,44,65: Jesus says, "**ALL** that the Father gives Me **WILL** come
to Me, and whoever comes to Me I will **NEVER** drive away... And this is the
will of Him who sent Me, that I shall **LOSE NONE** of all that He has given Me,
but raise them up at the Last Day.... No one can come to Me **UNLESS** the
Father who sent Me **DRAWS HIM**, and I will raise him up at the Last Day!!...
No one can come to Me **UNLESS** the Father has **ENABLED THEM**!!"

Ephesians 2:8,9: For it is by **GRACE** you have been saved, through
**FAITH**—and this **NOT FROM YOURSELVES**, it is the **GIFT OF GOD**—not by
works. So that no one can boast. For we are **GOD'S WORKMANSHIP**, created in
Christ Jesus to do **GOOD WORKS**, which God prepared in advance for us to do!

Romans 12:3: For by the **GRACE GIVEN ME** I say to every one of you. Do not
think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourselves
with sober judgment, in accordance with the **FAITH GOD HAS DISTRIBUTED TO EACH
OF YOU**... We have different gifts, according to the **GRACE GIVEN TO EACH OF
US**!!

John 15:16: Jesus says, "You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed
you so that you might go and bear fruit--fruit that will last!!

Romans 9:15,16,18: God says, "I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I
will have compassion on whom I have compassion." It does not, therefore, depend
on human desire or effort, but on God's mercy...Therefore God has mercy on whom
He wants to have mercy, and He hardens whom He wants to harden.

But God's saints still preach God's Word and whosoever will to everyone; since
only God knows the true motives of human hearts and who will fall away when
tested.

Revelation 17:14: They will wage war against the **LAMB**, but the **LAMB**
will triumph over them because He is Lord of lords and King of kings--and with
Him will be His **CALLED**, **CHOSEN** and **FAITHFUL** followers!


**SALVATION IS 100 % FREE BUT ETERNAL REWARDS ARE 100% EARNED**!!

Hebrews 11:1,6: Now faith {**A FREE GIFT OF GOD**} is being sure of what we hope
for and certain of what we do not see....And without faith it is impossible to
please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that
He *REWARDS** those who earnestly seek Him!!

Ephesians 6:8: Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men,
because you know that the Lord will **REWARD** everyone for what ever good he
does!

Revelation 22:12 Jesus says, “Behold I am coming soon! My **REWARD** is with
Me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done!”

Matthew 16:27: Jesus says, “The Son of Man is going to come in His Father's
glory with His angels and THEN He will **REWARD** each person according to what
he has done!”

Hebrews 6:10-12: God is not unjust; He will not forget your work and the love
you have shown Him as you have helped His people and continue to help them. We
want each of you to show this same diligence to the very end, so that what you
have hoped for may be fully realized. We do not want you to become lazy, but to
imitate those who through faith and patience **INHERIT WHAT HAS BEEN
PROMISED**!!

Daniel 12:3: Those who are impart wisdom {NIV} will shine like the brightness of
the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever
and ever!!

I Corinthians 3:7-9: So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything,
but only God who makes things grow. The man who plants and the man who watered
have one purpose, and each will be **REWARDED** according to his own labor. For
we are God's fellow workers, you are God's field, God's building!

Colossians 3:17: Whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the
name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the the Father through Him!

I Peter 4:11: If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God
provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ, To Him
be the glory and the power for ever and ever!

Colossians 3:17: And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the
**NAME OF THE LORD JESUS**, giving thanks to God the Father through Him!

John 15:5,8: Jesus says, "I am the Vine, you are the branches. If you remain
in Me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do
nothing... This is to My Father's glory, that you bear much fruit, showing
yourselves to be My disciples!"

Matthew 13:23; Jesus says, "But the seed falling on the good soil refers to
someone who hears the Word and understands it. This is the one who produces a
crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown!"

I Corinthians 9:17,18: When I preach the Gospel, I cannot boast, for I am
compelled to preach. Woe to me if I do not preach the Gospel! If I preach
**VOLUNTARILY**, I have a **REWARD**; if not voluntarily, I am simply
discharging the trust committed to me. What then is my reward?? Just this:
that in preaching the Gospel I may offer it **FREE OF CHARGE**, and so not make
use of my rights in preaching it!

Psalm 19:8-11: The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes.
The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever. The ordinances of the Lord are
sure and altogether righteous. They are more precious than gold, they are
sweeter than honey from the comb. In keeping them there is **GREAT REWARD**!!

2 Corinthians 5:9,10: We make it our goal to please Him... for we must all
appear before the Judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due
him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.

Ecclesiastes 12:13,14: Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the
matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of mankind.
For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing,
whether it is good or evil!

1 Corinthians 3:13-15: His work will be shown for what it is, because the Day
will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test
the quality of each man's work. If what he has built survives , he will receive
his **REWARD**. If it is burned up he will suffer loss; he himself will be
saved, but only as one escaping through the flames.

2 John 1:8: Watch out that you do not lose what you have worked for, but that
you be **REWARDED FULLY**!

Colossians 3:23-25: Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working
for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance
from the Lord as a **REWARD**. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. Anyone who
does wrong will be repaid for his wrong, and there is no favoritism.

Matthew 6:3,4,6: Jesus says, "When you give to the needy, do not let your left
hand know what your right hand is doing so that your giving my be in secret.
Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will **REWARD** you!!...
When you pray, go into your room, close the door, and pray to your Father who is
unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will **REWARD**
you!!"

Luke 6:35: Jesus says, "Love your enemies, do good to them and lend to them
without expecting anything back {Matt 5:45 adds "Pray for those who persecute
you!!"} Then your **REWARD WILL BE GREAT**, and you will be sons of the Most
High, because He is kind to the ungrateful and wicked!"

Proverbs 25:21,22: If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is
thirsty, give him water to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on
his head, and the Lord will **REWARD** you! This passage is also quoted in
Romans 12:20 which adds: Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with
good!!

Matthew 19:29 Jesus says, "Everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters
or father or mother for My sake will receive **A HUNDRED** times as much and
will inherit eternal life!"

Revelation 2:17: Jesus says, "To him who overcomes.. I will give him a white
stone with a **NEW NAME** written on it, known only to him who receives it!!"

Revelation 3:21: Jesus says, "To him who overcomes, I will give the right to
**SIT WITH ME** on My throne, just as I overcame and sat down with My Father on
His throne!!"

**HOW TO WIN TREASURES IN HEAVEN**

I Timothy 6:18,19: Command them to do good deeds, and to be gracious and
willing to share. In this way they will **LAY UP TREASURE** for themselves.. in
the coming age!

Luke 12:33,34: Jesus says, "Sell your possessions and give to the poor,
provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a **TREASURE IN HEAVEN**
that will not be exhausted... For where your **TREASURE* is there **YOUR HEART**
will be also!!"

Matthew 6:19-21: Jesus says, "Do not store up for yourselves treasure on
earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But
store up for yourselves **TREASURE IN HEAVEN**, where moth and and rust do not
destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your **TREASURE
is, there **YOUR HEART** will be also!!"

**HOW TO WIN HEAVENLY ETERNAL CROWNS**

I Corinthians 9:24-27: Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but
only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who
competes in the games goes in to strict training. They do it to get a **CROWN**
that will not last; but we do it to get a **CROWN THAT WILL LAST FOREVER**!
Therefore, I do not run like a man running aimlessly. I do not fight like a man
beating the air. No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have
preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize!

I Peter 5:2-4: Be shepherds of God's flock that is under your care, watch over
them--not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be;
not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve, not lording it over those
entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock. And when the Chief Shepherd
appears, you will receive the **CROWN OF GLORY** that will **NEVER FADE AWAY**!!


Ephesians 4:7,11-16: To each one of us grace has been given as Christ
apportioned it.... It is He that gives some to be apostles, some to be prophets,
some to be evangelists, and some to be **PASTORS** and teachers, to prepare
God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up
until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and
become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ! Then
we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here
and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people
in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow
to become in every respect the mature body Him who is the Head, that is, Christ.
From Him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament,
grows and builds itself up in love as each part does its work! {With the hope
of countless eternal rewards and crowns for faithful and loving service!!}

And so God's Word confirms that these heavenly crowns **WILL LAST FOREVER** and
**WILL NEVER FADE AWAY**!!

Revelation 3:11: Jesus says, “I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so
that no one will take your **CROWN**!”

2 Timothy 4:7,8: I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have
kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the **CROWN** of righteousness,
which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only
to me, but also to all who have longed for His appearing!

The **CROWN OF LIFE** for those who persevere under trials and persecution:

James 1:12: Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has
stood the test, he will receive the **CROWN OF LIFE** that God has promised to
those who love Him!

Revelation 2:10 Jesus says, “Do not be afraid of what you are about to
suffer... Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the
**CROWN OF LIFE!”

Matthew 5:11,12: Jesus says, “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute
you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. Rejoice and be
glad, because great is your **REWARD** in heaven!”

Hebrews 10:32-36: Remember those earlier days after you had received the Light,
when you stood your ground in a great contest in the face of suffering.
Sometimes you were publicly exposed to insult and persecution; at other times
you stood side by side with those who were so treated. You sympathized with
those in prison and joyfully accepted the confiscation of your property, because
you knew that you yourselves had better and lasting possessions. So do not throw
away your confidence; it will be **RICHLY REWARDED**. You need to persevere so
that when you have done the will of God, **YOU RECEIVE WHAT HE HAS PROMISED**!!!

**JESUS SAYS, "MY MOTHER AND BROTHERS ARE THOSE WHO HEARS **GOD'S WORD** AND **PUTS IT INTO PRACTICE**!" {Luke 8:21}

Psalm 119 has 176 verses praising the Word of God. The Old Testament had 613 laws and the New Covenant of Jesus and His love has about 400 commands which Psalm 119 also applies to. Some of my favorite verses is Psalm 119 are:

119:105: Your Word is a Lamp to my feet and a Light for my path.
119:97: Oh how I love your law, I meditate on it all day long.
119:148: My eyes stay open through the watches of the night, that I meditate on your promises.
119:164: Seven times a day I praise you for your righteous laws.
119:16: All your Words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal.
119:169: Give me understanding according to your Word.
119:2: Blessed are those who keep His statues and seek Him with all your heart.
119:11: I have hidden your Word in my heart that I might not sin against You.
119:28: Strengthen me according to your Word.

Deut 18:17-19: The Lord says, "I will raise up for them a Prophet like you from among their brothers; I will put My words in His mouth, and He will tell them everything I command Him. If anyone does not listen to My words that the Prophet speaks in My Name, I Myself will call Him to account."

John 14:23,24: Jesus says, "If anyone loves Me, He will **OBEY MY TEACHING**! My Father will love Him, and we will come to him and make Our home with him. He who does not love Me will not obey My teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent Me."

THE GREAT COMMISSION: Matthew 28:18-20: Jesus says, “All authority in heaven and on *EARTH has been given to Me {Not some RC Pope}. Therefore go and make disciples of *ALL NATIONS*...teaching them to **OBEY EVERYTHING** I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very *END OF THE AGE*!”

I Peter 1:23-25: You have been **BORN AGAIN THROUGH THE LIVING AND ENDURING **WORD OF GOD**!! All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field, the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the **WORD OF THE LORD STANDS FOREVER**. And this is the **WORD** that was preached to you.

Matthew 24:35: Jesus says, Heaven and earth will pass away, but **MY WORDS WILL NEVER PASS AWAY**!"

I John 2:3-5: We know we have come to know Him {Jesus} if we obey His commands. The man who says, "I know Him," but does not do what He commands is a liar and the truth is not in him. But if anyone **OBEYS HIS WORD**, God's love is truly made complete in him!

Matthew 4:4: Jesus says, "Man does not live on bread alone, but on **EVERY WORD FROM THE MOUTH OF GOD**!"

Matthew 7:24,26: Jesus says, "Everyone who hears these **WORDS OF MINE** and **PUTS THEM INTO PRACTICE** is like a wise man who built his house on a Rock... But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand."

Luke 8:21: Jesus says, "My mother and brothers are those who hears **GOD'S WORD** and **PUTS THEM INTO PRACTICE!**"

James 1:22,25: Do not merely listen to the **WORD**, and so deceive yourselves. **DO WHAT IT SAYS**... The man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, **BUT DOING IT**, he will be blessed in what he does.

Matthew 13:23: Jesus says, "But the one who received the seed that fell on good soil is the man who hears the **WORD AND UNDERSTANDS IT**. He produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown."

John 15:1,2,5,16: Jesus says, "I am the True Vine and my Father is the Gardener. He cuts off every branch in Me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit He prunes so that it will be even more fruitful!... This is to my Father's glory that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be My disciples!... You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit--fruit that will last!"

Luke 8:15: Jesus says, "But the seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the **WORD**, retain it, and by perseverance produce a crop."

John 17:17: Jesus prays to His Father, "Sanctify them by the Truth, **YOUR WORD IS TRUTH**!"

2 Timothy 3:15,16: 4:1,2: You have known the **HOLY SCRIPTURES**,which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. **ALL SCRIPTURE IS GOD-BREATHED** and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Romans 4:18: Against all **HOPE**, Abraham **IN HOPE** believed and so became the father of many nations!!

Romans 2:5: We boast in the **HOPE** of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know theat suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, **HOPE**!!

Romans 8:23-25: We who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemtion of our bodies. For in this **HOPE** we were saved. But **HOPE** that is seen is **NO HOPE** at all. Who **HOPES** for what they already have? But if we **HOPE** for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently!!

Romans 12:12: Be **JOYFUL** in **HOPE**, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer!!

Romans 15:4 Everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and encouragement they provide we might have ***HOPE***!!

I Timothy 1:1: Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the command of God our Savior and of Christ Jesus **OUR HOPE**!!

I Timothy 4:10: That is why we labor and strive, beacause we have put **OUR HOPE** in the living God!!

I Timothy 6:17: Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their **HOPE** in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their **HOPE IN GOD**, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment!!

Titus 2:13: We wait for the **BLESSED HOPE**--the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ!!

I Peter 1:13: With minds that are alert and fully sober, **SET YOUR HOPE** on the grace to be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed at His coming!!

I John 3:2,3: We know that when Christ appears, we shall be like Him. All who have this **HOPE IN HIM** purify themselves, just as He is pure!!

Hebrews 6:19: We have this **HOPE** as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure!!

Hebrews 7:18,19: The former regulation is set aside because it was weak and useless for the law made nothing perfect, and a **BETTER HOPE** is introduced, by which we draw near to God!!

Hebres 10:23: Let us hold unswervingly to the **HOPE** we profess, for He who promised is faithful!!

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is confidence in what we **HOPE** for and assurance about what we do not see!!

**THE ONLY THING THAT COUNTS IS **FAITH** EXPRESSING ITSELF THROUGH LOVE**!!{Galatians 5:6}

Acts 26:17,18: Jesus said to Paul, "I am sending you to the Gentiles to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are **SANCTIFIED BY FAITH**!"

Romans 1:17: For in the Gospel the righteousness of God is revealed--a righteousness that is **BY FAITH FROM FIRST TO LAST**!!

Romans 3:23-25: For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of His blood--to be received **BY FAITH**!!

Romans 3:27,28: Where, then, is boasting? It is excluded. Because of what law? The law that requires works? **NO**, because of the law that **REQUIRES FAITH**! For we maintain that a person is **JUSTIFIED BY FAITH** apart from the works of the law!!

Romans 5:1,2: Therefore, since we have been **JUSTIFIED THOUGH FAITH**, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access **BY FAITH** into this grace in which we now stand!!

Romans 10:5-9: Moses writes about the righteousness that is by the law: "The person who does these things will live by them." {Lev 18:5} But the righteousness that comes **BY FAITH** says...The word is near you: it is in your mouth and in your heart, that is, the message concerning **FAITH** that we proclaim: IF you declare with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your **FAITH** and are saved!!

Romans 12:3: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the **FAITH** God has distributed to each of you!!

Romans 14:23: Everything that does not come **FROM FAITH** is sin!!

2 Corinthians 1:24: We work with you for your joy, because it is **BY FAITH** you stand firm!!

2 Corinthians 5:6-10: We are always confident and know that as long as we are at home with the body we are away from the Lord. For we live **BY FAITH**, not by sight. We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. So we make it our goal to please Him... For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad!!

Galatians 2:16: We know that a person is not justified by the works of the law, but **BY FAITH** in Jesus Christ. So we, too, have put our **FAITH** in Christ Jesus that we may be **JUSTIFIED BY FAITH** in Christ and not by the works of the law, because by the works of the law **NO ONE WILL BE JUSTIFIED**!!

Galatians 3:23-26: Before the coming of this **FAITH**, we were held in custody under the law, locked up until the **FAITH** that was to come would be revealed. So the law was our guardian until Christ came that we might be **JUSTIFIED BY FAITH**. Now that this **FAITH** has come we are **NO LONGER UNDER THE SUPERVION OF THE LAW**. So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God **THROUGH FAITH**!!

Galatians 5:5,6: For through the Spirit we eagerly await **BY FAITH** the righteousness for which we hope. For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is **FAITH** expressing itself through **LOVE**!!

Ephesians 2:8-10: For it is by grace you have been saved, **THROUGH FAITH**--and this is not from yourselves, it is the **GIFT** of God by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do!!

Ephesians 3:16,17: I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts **THROUGH FAITH**!!

I Thessalonians 1:3: We remember before our God and Father you work produced **BY FAITH**!!

2 Thessalonians 1:3,4: We ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters, and rightly so, because your **FAITH** is growing **MORE AND MORE**....Therefore, among God's churches we boast about your perseverance and **FAITH** in all the persecutions and trials you are enduring!!

2 Thessalonians 1:11: We constantly pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of His calling, and that by His power He may bring to fruition your every desire for goodness and your every deed **PROMPTED BY FAITH**!!

I Timothy 1:3,4: Command certain people not to teach false doctrines any longer... Such things promote controversial speculations rather than advancing God's work--which is **BY FAITH**!!

2 Timothy 3:14,15: Continue in what you have learned and become convinced of...and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation **THROUGH FAITH** in Christ Jesus!!

Hebrews 11:1,3,6: So **FAITH** is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see...**BY FAITH** we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, in that what is seen was not made out of what was visible... Without **FAITH** it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He **REWARDS** those who earnestly seek Him!!

Hebrews 12:1,2: Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the Pioneer and Perfecter of our **FAITH**!!

**THE FATHER LOVES HIS FAITHUL SAINTS JUST AS MUCH AS HE LOVES JESUS**

John 17:23: Jesus says to His Father, "You sent Me and have **LOVED THEM** even as you **LOVED** Me!!"

**JESUS LOVES HIS FAITHFUL SAINTS **JUST AS MUCH** AS THE FATHER LOVES HIM**!!

John 15:9,10" Jesus says, "As the Father **LOVED** Me, so I have **LOVED** you!! Now remain in My **LOVE . **IF** you obey My commands, you will remain in My **LOVE** , just as I have obeyed my Father's commands and remain in His **LOVE** !"

John 14:21,23: Jesus says, "Whoever has My commands and obeys them, he is the one who **LOVES** Me! He who loves Me will be **LOVED** by My Father, and I will **LOVE** him....If anyone **LOVES** Me, he will obey My teaching. My Father will **LOVE** him, and we will come to him and make Our home with him!!"

I John 3:18: Dear children, let us not **LOVE** with words or tongue but with actions and in truth!

WHAT'S **LOVE**GOT TO DO WITH IT??

I Peter 1:22: "Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere **LOVE** for your brothers, **LOVE** one another deeply, from the heart. For you have been born again... through the living and enduring Word of God!

I Peter 4:8: **ABOVE ALL**, **LOVE** each other **DEEPLY**, because **LOVE**covers over a multitude of sins!

I Corinthians 13:2,4-8: If I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not **LOVE** I am nothing...**LOVE** is patient, **LOVE** is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. **LOVE** does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. **LOVE** never fails!!"

John 13:34: Jesus says, "A NEW command I give you: **LOVE* one another As I have **LOVED** you, so you must **LOVE** one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples." John 15:12,13: Jesus says, "My command is this: **LOVE** each other as I have **LOVED** you. Greater **LOVE** has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.

I John 3:16: This how we know what **LOVE** is: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers!

Ephesians 5:1,2: Be **IMITATORS OF GOD**, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of **LOVE**, just as Christ **LOVED** us and gave Himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God!

Luke 6:27,28,35,36: Jesus says, "**LOVE** your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. **LOVE** your enemies, do good to them. and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your **REWARD** will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because He is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful!"

Matthew 28:19.20” Jesus commands, “Go and make disciples of all nations... teaching them to *OBEY EVERYTHING* I have commanded you!” {See I John 2:3-5}

EVERYTHING would also include all the other commands in God's inspired Word from Acts to Revelation as per 2 Timothy 3:16: 4:2: "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work...Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage--with great patience and careful instruction."

If we really **LOVE** our brothers and sister in Christ we will lovingly teach them to obey all the approximately 400 commands of the NT with **LOVE** in the hope of countless eternal rewards when Jesus comes with great power with all His angels.

Revelation 22:112: Jesus says, "Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with Me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done!?

Matthew 16:27: Jesus says, For the Son of Man is going to come in His Father's glory with His angels, and **THEN** He will **REWARD** each person according to what he has done."

Ephesians 4:15: "Speaking the Truth in **LOVE** , we will in all things grow up into Him who is the Head, that is, Christ! From Him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in **LOVE** , as each part does its work."

Ephesians 3:17-19: "I pray that you, being rooted and established in **LOVE** may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the **LOVE** of Christ, and to know this **LOVE** that surpasses knowledge--that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God!!"

I John 4:7-12: Dear friends, let us **LOVE** one another, for **LOVE** comes from God. Everyone who **LOVES** has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not **LOVE** does not know God, because God is **LOVE**. This is how God showed His **LOVE**among us: He sent His one and only Son into the world that we might live through Him. This is **LOVE**, not that we **LOVED** God, but that He **LOVED** us and sent His Son as the atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so **LOVED** us, we ought to **LOVE** one another. No one has ever seen God, but if we **LOVE** one another, God lives in us and His **LOVE** is made complete in us!

Romans 8:35,37-39: Who shall separate us from the **LOVE** of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?...We are more than conquerors through Him who **LOVED** us! For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the **LOVE** of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord!!

Prophetic said:
Now, brothers and sister about times and dates we will not need to write you, for you know very well tat the Day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. {To unbelievers}


Nope he was talking to believers to avoid being asleep and not knowing like the unbelievers, and he become a thief in the night to believers.

Revelation 3:3 Remember therefore how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you.


See, if christians arent watching Jesus will steal away the good thing (bride, wise virgins),


Wow Jesus is thief and some christians will be naked and ashamed.....


Revelation 16:15 “Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.”


Revelation 3:18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see.

1 Corinthians 3:15 If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.

Thessalonians 4:16-18; 5:1-5: For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel, and with the {7th & Last} Trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first {Except for the **MARTYRS who have already risen!} After that we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Now, brothers and sister about times and dates we will not need to write you, for you know very well tat the Day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. {To unbelievers} While people are saying, Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant women, and the will not escape! BUT YOU, BROTHERS AND SISTERS ARE **NOT** IN DARKNESS SO THAT THIS DAY SHOULD SURPRISE YOU LIKE A THIEF**! You are children of the light and children of the day.

For once the 1260-day Great Tribulation begins all of God's true saints will then know the exact day that the 1260-day Great Tribulation will end!!

Revelation 3:3: Jesus says, "Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard, hold it fast and repent. **BUT IF YOU DO NOT WAKE UP, I WILL COME LIKE A THIEF, AND YOU WILL NOT KNOW AT WHAT TIME I WILL COME TO YOU**! {SINCE YOU ARE REALLY NOT FAITHFUL BELIEVERS!}

Revelation 13:5-8: The Beast will exercise his authority for 42 {30-day} months {OR EXACTLY 1260 DAYS!}. ... He will be give power to wage war against God's people and to conquer them. And he will be given authority over **EVERY** tribe, people language and **NATION**. All inhabitants of the earth will worship the Beast--all whose names have not been written in the **LAMB'S**Book of Life!

Matthew 24:9-13; 29-31: Jesus says, "Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by **ALL NATIONS** because of Me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold but they who stands firm to the end will be saved... Immediately after the distress of those {1260} days the sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light and the stars will fall from the sky! {Luke 21:28 adds "When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near!"} Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. and then all the {Unsaved} peoples of the earth will mourn when the see the son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a loud {7th & Last} trumpet call, and the will gather His elect from the 4 winds, from one end of heavens to the other!" {Mark 13:27 adds "From the ends of the earth!"}

Daniel 12:1,2,7b: There will be a time of distress such as not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people--everyone whose name was found in the {**LAMB'S**} Book--will be delivered. Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake; {Except the **MARTYRS** who are already AWAKE} some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt... It will be for a time {360 days} times {720 days} and 1/2 a time {180 days}{FOR A TOTAL OF EXACTLY 1260 days!}. When the power of the holy people has been finally broken, **ALL** these things will be **COMPLETED**!

Now the pre-tribbers like Equalizer21 believe that **ALL** the **CHURCH SAINTS**, dead or alive, will be raptured **BEFORE** the Great Tribulation begins and that the unbelievers will be resurrected **AFTER** the Great Tribulation ends???

**BUT WHAT DOES GOD'S WORD SAY**??

2 Thessalonians 1:1,6-10: To the **CHURCH** of the Thessalonians... God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you and give relief to you who are troubled, and to us as well. This will happen **WHEN**the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven in blazing fire with His powerful angels {See Matthew 24:29-31 and Matthew 25:31} He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the Gospel of our lord Jesus They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord **ON THE DAY HE COMES** to be glorified in His holy people {Including **CHURCH SAINTS**--See Matthew 25:31-46} and to be marveled at among all those who have believed. This includes **YOU**** {Thessalonian **CHURCH SAINTS**}

Pre-Tibbers also claim that the **CHURCH SAINTS** and the Lost will not be resurrected on the same **LAST DAY** of the Great Tribulation??

**BUT WHAT DOES GOD'S WORD SAY**??

John 12:48: Jesus says, "There is a Judge for the one who rejects Me and does not accept My words, that very word which I spoke will condemn him on the **LAST DAY**!" See Matthew 25:31-46; Daniel 12:1,2 and John 5:28}

John 6:40: Jesus says, ""For My Father's will is that **EVERYONE** who looks to the Son and believes in Him {**CHURCH SAINTS**} shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the **LAST DAY**!"

Pre-Tribbers also claim that all of the Church saints will be raptured **BEFORE** the **MAN OF LAWLESSNESS IS REVEALED**??

**BUT WHAT DOES GOD'S WORD SAY**??

2 Thessalonians 1:1; 2:1-3, 8: To the **CHURCH** of the Thessalonians... Concerning the **COMING*** of our Lord Jesus and **OUR** {CHURCH SAINTS} being gathered to Him.... Don't let anyone {Like Pre-Tribbers} deceive you in any way, for **THAT DAY WILL NOT COME** **UNTIL THE MAN OF LAWLESSNESS IS
REVEALED**!... The lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of His mouth and destroy by the splendor **OF HIS COMING**!! {On the **LAST DAY** of the Great Tribulation**} It is interesting to note that the only **COMING** of the Lord Jesus when the **CHURCH SAINTS** are gathered to Him; mentioned in 2 Thessalonians 1:6-10 and 2:1 and 2:8; is on the **LAST DAY** of the Great Tribulation!!

I Peter 1:13: “Therefore, prepare your minds for ACTION, and set your hope *FULLY* on the grace to be given YOU when Jesus Christ is **REVEALED**.

I Corinthians 1:7: “YOU do not lack any spiritual gift as YOU eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be **REVEALED**.

Now the pre-tribbers claim that the glorious **REVEALING** or *REVELATION* of Jesus will be *CONCEALED* BEFORE the beginning of the Great Tribulation. However, every other time the Word **REVEALED** {Greek-Apocalypsis} is used related to resurrection events it refers to the glorious **REVEALING** of Jesus
on the **LAST DAY** of the Great Tribulation {See 2 Thess 1:7-10 & Luke 17:26-31}. And *CONCEALED* is the exact opposite of **REVEALED** and **APPEARED** according to every dictionary! The Word of God clearly shows that the **CHURCH SAINTS** are waiting for the **APPEARING** and **REVEALING ** of our Lord Jesus Christ which completely contradicts the Pre-Trib theory that the **CHURCH SAINTS ** are all waiting for a **CONCEALED RAPTURE**???

Titus 2:13 **WE** {**CHURCH SAINTS**} wait for the **BLESSED HOPE**---the glorious **APPEARING** of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ!!


Hebrews 9:28: Jesus will **APPEAR** a 2nd time {And not a 3rd TIME!} to bring salvation **TO THOSE WHO ARE WAITING FOR HIM**!!

Colossians 3:4: When Christ, who is your life **APPEARS**, then **YOU** {**CHURCH SAINTS**} also will **APPEAR** with Him in glory.”

I John 3:2,3: “When Jesus **APPEARS**, **WE** {**CHURCH SAINTS**} shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. Everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure!!”

Matthew 24:29-31: Jesus says, “IMMEDIATELY AFTER the distress of those days {The Great Tribulation} the sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky. At that time the sign of the Son of Man will **APPEAR** in the sky and the nations will see the Son of Man **COMING** on the clouds of the sky with power and great glory! And He will send His angels with a **LOUD** {7th & Last} trumpet call and He will gather His **ELECT**!"

I John 2:28: “Dear children, continue in Him, so that when He *APPEARS* **WE** {**CHURCH SAINTS**} may be confident and unashamed before Him at His COMING!” {See 2 Thess 1:7-10; I Tim 6:14; Heb 9:28 & Col 3:4}

2 Tim 4:8: Paul said, There is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on THAT DAY—and not only to me, but to *ALL* {**CHURCH SAINTS**} who have longed for His **APPEARING**!!” {See Matt 24:30 above!!}

I Peter 5:4: “When the Chief Shepherd **APPEARS**, **YOU** {CHURCH SAINTS**} will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away!”

1 Corinthians 11 (KJV):


23 For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:
24 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.
25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.

"this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me."

The word "oft" is the key word which means often. So it means as often in remembrance of Jesus.

******Prophetic teaches******* The tribulation Martyrs have a special place in heaven. Which they do, but not to the extent Prophetic teaches. Now they get ressurected in rev 20, to rule and reign for a thousand years. Which is awesome, they OVERCAME in the 3.5 year tribulation, the Day of the Lords wrath.

this is a snapshot of the MARTYRS IN HEAVEN
rev 7
15 Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them. 16 They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; 17 for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”

Here is a contrasting picture of those who DO NOT HAVE TO BE MARTYRS. They escape martyrdom. They get to escape the HOUR OF TRIAL, however martyrs must go through this HOUR OF TRIAL because they were not READY.


REV 3
I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.

13 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”’


Subtle differences:

one is a pillar in the Temple, the other serves

Martyrs have their tears wiped away.....Why are martyrs crying in heaven? Because they see what they couldve had if they had been faithful.

One never leaves the Temple, the other is shepherded.

Having the bridegroom, write on you like a tatoo, signifies you are his, or his bride.These do not have to be martyred, they were faithful. They were a cut above.Thats the message found in rev 3, you were faithful, the martyrs were not.

Quote from freegratis:
The Lord's Supper is not Passover. One is a shadow of things to come.

I read about someone who teaches the Lord's Supper should only be celebrated at Passover -- once per year.

I have heard of once per day or even multiple times per day.

What is biblical?


Once a year, and it is a part of pesach. It was the meal they were eating when the Angel of Death passed over them.

Listen! Equalizer21 has gone on a "whining, oh, woe is me" crying jag -- making false accusations and lying on other Christians.

Are you aware of what the Bible says about these things?

Read the 10 Commandments!

I am NOT a spammer, dear -- I am Christian relating God's word as my Bible teaches.

Thank you Sweet Jesus!

Praise God!

**THE WONDERFUL NAMES OF JESUS CHRIST**!!

Jesus in English is Yeshua or Joshua in Hebrew and means **GOD IS HELP**!! Joshua in Hebrew is phonetically pronounced "YESHUA" since the "J" in Hebrew is pronounced "YEH". “Christ” comes from the Greek word "Christos", meaning “Anointed One” or “Chosen One.” This is the Greek equivalent of the Hebrew word Masheach, or “Messiah.” Jesus the Messiah in Hebrew is pronounced **YESHUA HA MASHEACH**

Matthew 1:21-23: The angel of the Lord said, " She will give birth to a Son, and you are to give Him the name **JESUS** {Which means **GOD IS HELP**}, because He will save His people from their sins." All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said {In Isaiah 7:14 below} through the prophet: "The virgin will conceive and give birth to a Son and they will all Him **IMMANUEL** which means **GOD WITH US**!"

Luke 2:9,10: An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them. The angel said, "I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a **SAVIOR** has been born to you; He is the **MESSIAH**, the **LORD**!"

Isaiah 7:14: "The Lord Himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a Son, and will call Him **IMMANUEL!" {Which means **GOD WITH US**! quoted in Matthew 1:23 above}

Isaiah 9:6: For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders. And He will be called **WONDERFUL COUNSELOR** and **MIGHTY GOD**!

Titus 2:13,14: We wait for the **BLESSED HOPE**--the glorious appearing of our **GREAT GOD** AND **SAVIOR**, Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for Himself a people that are **HIS VERY OWN**, eager to do what is good!!

**JESUS CHRIST** is also called **THE LAMB OF GOD** **THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE** **THE GOOD SHEPHERD** **JUDGE** **LORD OF LORDS** **HEAD OF THE CHURCH** **MASTER** **FAITHFUL AND TRUE WITNESS** **THE ROCK** **HIGH PRIEST** **THE DOOR** **LIVING WATER** **BREAD OF LIFE** **ROSE OF SHARON** **ALPHA AND OMEGA** **THE BEGINNING AND THE END** THE TRUE VINE** **TEACHER** **PROPHET** **ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD** **HOLY ONE** **ONLY MEDIATOR** **LIGHT OF THE WORLD** **IMAGE OF THE INVISIBLE GOD** **THE WORD** **CHIEF CORNERSTONE** **SAVIOR** **AUTHOR AND FINISHER OF OUR FAITH** **THE ALMIGHTY** **KING OF KINGS** **PRINCE OF PEACE** **SON OF MAN** **REDEEMER** **BRIGHT MORNING STAR** **THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE**!!

Made herself ready...

Simon Peter, a bondservant and apostle of Jesus Christ,

To those who have obtained like precious faith with us by the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ:

2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, 3 as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, 4 by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

Fruitful Growth in the Faith
5 But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, 6 to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, 7 to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. 8 For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.

10 Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble; 11 for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.


Make it sure!..........Help Jesus select you as a bride
