Christians are to partake of the Lord’s Supper in order to remember Jesus’ death.
The bread and wine (grape juice) are only symbols of Christ’s body and blood. They do not actually turn into the body and blood of Christ.
1 Corinthians 11:23-26 “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: 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. 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. For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come.”
The Lord’s Supper must contain grape juice not alcoholic wine.
The Bible says in Titus 1:7 “For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre;”
The word “bishop” means “overseer” and “Christian officer in general charge of a church.” Therefore, this verse applies to Pastors. (Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible with Hebrew and Greek Dictionaries #1985 in the Greek.)
The Greek word for “wine” in this verse references back to a Hebrew word meaning “fermented.” (Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible with Hebrew and Greek Dictionaries #3631 in the Greek and then #3196 in the Hebrew).
“Given to wine” in this verse means “staying near wine” and then roots back to a word that means “in the vicinity of.” (Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible with Hebrew and Greek Dictionaries #3943 and then #3844 both in the Greek).
Therefore, this verse is saying that a Pastor cannot be in the vicinity of alcoholic wine.
If a Pastor cannot even be around alcoholic wine, then the Lord’s Supper cannot contain alcoholic wine.
Jesus did not use alcoholic wine at the Last Supper.
Jesus instituted the ordinance of the Lord’s Supper during the Passover meal before He died.
Luke 22:15-20 “And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer: For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God. And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves: For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come. And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.”
There could be no leaven at the Passover meal. There could not even be any leaven in the house! Alcoholic wine contains leaven (usually yeast).
Exodus 12:1-11 “And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt saying, This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house: And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbor next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb. Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats: And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening. And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it. And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it. Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast with fire; his head with his legs, and with the purtenance thereof. And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire. And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the LORD’s passover.”
Exodus 12:15 “Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel.”
Therefore, Jesus used grape juice not alcoholic wine at the Last Supper.
The Lord’s Supper is an ordinance not a sacrament.
The Catholic church teaches that Christ gives people divine life (salvation) through sacraments.
The Bible says that Christ only gives us everlasting life (salvation) through simple belief in the Gospel.
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:36 “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.”
John 5:24 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”
Romans 10:9 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”
A sacrament is a “work.” We are saved by grace through faith, not by works.
Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
Romans 1:17 “For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.“
Therefore, the Lord’s Supper is not the same thing as the Mass or Eucharist.
During the sacrament of the Mass a priest takes the Eucharist (bread) and claims to turn it into the very blood, body, soul, and divinity of Jesus Christ.
The Catholic church first made the sacrament of the Mass a doctrine in 394 AD. Below is what was said about it at the Council of Trent in 1563 and then it was Ratified at the Vatican II Council in 1963:
“If any one shall deny that the body and blood, together with the soul and divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ, and therefore entire Christ, are truly, really and substantially contained in the sacrament of the most Holy Eucharist; and say that He is only in it as a sign, or in a figure-let him be accursed! (Damned)” This doctrine is still in effect in the Catholic Church today.
This is blasphemy! Nowhere does the Bible say that any man can command God like this!
This practice of “turning a god into a piece of bread” comes from Baal worship and ancient Egyptian paganism! Not the Bible! (Hislop, Alexander. 1862. The Two Babylons. 3rd ed. Ontario: Chick Publications. 156-164.)
Christians are to worship God according to the Bible! Not according to what some man says!
Revelation 22:18 “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:”
The Mass is a heresy added to the Lord’s Supper!
The Mass is also Idolatry!
To believe that a piece of bread is literally Jesus Christ is idolatry!
Leviticus 26:1 “Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am the LORD your God.”
2 Corinthians 6:14-18 “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.”
Note: I have started hearing some ecumenical preachers say that you experience some kind of mystical union with Christ, or receive power from God, or some other kind of special blessing by eating the Lord’s Supper.
This is also idolatry!
Believing that you receive any kind of spiritual benefit by eating the Lord’s Supper is idolatry, and you are guilty of adding to the Word of God.
The Bible says that the Lord’s Supper is just a remembrance of Christ’s death. And that is all it is!
God says that True Christians who partake of the Mass, will miss the Rapture, and go through the Great Tribulation.
Revelation 2:20-25 “Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works. But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden. But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.”
Notice that the Bible says that this eating of things sacrificed unto idols is a religious doctrine. This can be specifically applied to the Mass!
Pastors, who fear Rome more than God, and allow their people to be taught by the Catholic church (Jezebel) through the Ecumenical movement that the Mass is the same thing as the Lord’s Supper, are blindly leading their people to miss the rapture and go through the Great Tribulation, along with themselves!
I am not afraid of Rome. They have already poisoned men twice, for things I have written in the past! I died once and God sent me back at my request!
My God is more powerful than those vipers! They have no power against me unless Jesus Christ grants it to them! I will not die until He wants me too!
And if I die by the hands of the Jesuits or anyone else of Rome, then I will forever praise my God that I was counted worthy to join His Army of Millions of Martyrs who have been slain by that Great Whore of Revelation 17, who makes herself drunken with the blood of the saints of Jesus Christ!
Therefore, I have warned you to not be seduced by Jezebel to partake of the Mass!
Moreover, Jesus Christ was sacrificed only one time to atone for our sins. He does not have to be sacrificed over and over again by a Mass!
Hebrews 9:28a “So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many;”
In addition, The Lord’s Supper is very Holy, and even a Christian must make sure that they are right with God before partaking of it, or they could become sick or even die by God’s judgement.
1Co 11:27-32 “Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.”
Therefore, make sure you never partake of the Mass, and only partake of the true Lord’s Supper if you are truly saved, been baptized after salvation, and are right with God, or His judgment will fall on you!
