Since the day of Pentecost there is only One Communion
The people of Judean descent known today as Jews are still looking for their Messiah to come through birth from a woman – the seed of the woman –Genesis 3:15. Their teachings are from the revelation given in the Old Testament and they are still looking for the Abrahamic and Davidic Covenants to be fulfilled.
Since the Jews do not accept the Lord Jesus as the Messiah of God, their Passover celebration is to God for their deliverance by Him through Moses from the bondage of their slavery in Egypt.
The feast of unleaven bread involves the use of a lamb and the blood of the lamb. Blood as used in the Old Testament was confined to make “Atonement” with God – Leviticus 17:11, Hebrews 9:22, and to establish a Covenant – Exodus 24:6-8, Hebrews 9:16-22.
Wordlight Fellowship submits the light that Jesus had his last supper with his apostles in which he took bread, blessed the bread and broke it and told them to take and eat the bread; he stated this is my body ; and he took the cup and gave thanks and said to drink for this is my blood of the New Covenant which is shed for the remission of sins. Jesus understood no Covenant could be without shedding of blood.
Also, at this last supper Jesus gave a new commandment: Love one another as I have loved you and instructed them about the coming of the spirit of truth that will proceed from God and shall testify of me – John 15: 12,16,17,26.
We submit to the light that we celebrate Jesus as our Passover because he loved us enough to sacrifice his life to redeem us from the oppression of Satan and everlasting death.
The apostles ate the bread and drank the wine because they believed Jesus was the Messiah. The bread and the wine represents his body and blood and we eat the bread and drink the wine in rememberance of his sacrifice for us because we believe his sacrifice was sufficient for our redemption. The bread and the wine represents his body and blood but is not literally changed into his body and blood because is means a Metaphor. For example, a portrait represents a person but is not actually the person. The portrait is never changed into the person.
We submit the light we celebrate Jesus as our Passover because his death made peace with God for all mankind. We eat the bread and drink the wine in memory of him because he made Atonement for all mankind by his sacrifice – and God put His seal on the New Covenant Jesus ratified by his blood by the fulfillment of His promise to send the spirit of truth which we know came on the day of Pentecost.
We submit the light Jesus is our Passover due to the day and time of day he died. We have the light that four Gospels show that the crucifixion of Jesus was on a Wednesday, the 14th of Nissan, which was the preparation day of the Jewish Passover lamb; therefore, the last supper of Jesus the evening before was not the passover. Jesus died on the cross before the first day of the feast of unleaven bread which commenced on the 14th of Nissan at sunset.
We have the light Jesus asked God his Father to receive his spirit he had received at his baptism by John the Baptist and then he died around the ninth hour or 3pm in the afternoon and had to be buried before 6pm on account of the preparation of the feast which commenced at sunset.
Wordlight Fellowship is committed to the light when we take communion in a fellowship it is a celebration of Jesus as our Passover.
Glory to God our source of all blessings through Jesus to the praise of the glory of His love for everyone.
