God does Multi-Task

When God speaks it has many applications. He speaks the blueprint (a living “shadow”) for the future building of the living “image”. The Old Testament is a historical blueprint of the New Testament church life. You can find the shadow or allegory in the law for the answer you need today in Truth. 
 [Gen 1:3 KJV And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.] The light God spoke in verse 3 is different from the light the sun gives, created in verses 14-16.  Because this light in verse 3 is understanding of Truth. [Jhn 8:12 KJV Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.] [2Pe 1:19 KJV We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:] Oh so much more could be said about this light. Same as the earth. The allegory is good ground, your heart. First God spoke it, then He made man out of it and then He typed it out as your heart. This is just one of the types / allegories. Just trying to point out that when a situation is there, God can and will do many things with that one situation or creation.
When things happen in life, think there’s a bigger picture then just ourselves. Job went through things because of, well yes, the spirit in him (God uses all things that happen to us for our good), but also the spirit in others (Jobs friends). And last but not least, this story teaches you a few thousand years later.
[Job 42:7-9 KJV And it was so, that after the LORD had spoken these words unto Job, the LORD said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends: for ye have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job hath. Therefore take unto you now seven bullocks and seven rams, and go to my servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and my servant Job shall pray for you: for him will I accept: lest I deal with you after your folly, in that ye have not spoken of me the thing which is right, like my servant Job. So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went, and did according as the LORD commanded them: the LORD also accepted Job.]
We don't get to choose what we go through directly. Car accidents, sickness, injury, rodents, divorce, death’s, house burning down etc, some are from our harvest, some are called by God; but all things are and will work for our good; it's a promise to those that love the Truth. The problem isn’t the situation, it’s the reaction to the situation. The Heart of the matter. God doesn't care about a house burnt down, He cares about the heart of a person. He owns and creates all things. As fast as it was received, it can be taken away. That is why we need to watch our focus on temporal things and how we judge a situation.
[Mat 7:1-3 KJV Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. 3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?]
When a situation comes on your life and on those around you, read the above scripture before you comment on it. Eliphaz and his two friends put Job through quite a situation. Which during it they were really looking at Job and pointing the finger at him with all their predetermined ideas of why God did this to him. Now God did allow this situation to come upon Job because there was things in Job’s heart that only God knew and this situation was “perfect” for taking care of the hearts of all involved. Although it focuses on the Job, the three friends, and the preacher; it also has a side note of Jobs family, Jobs wife and friends during and after the situation too. They appeared to have abandoned him and then turned around to comfort him.
I bring up Jobs family and friends because I read a lot of quotes and hear people say it all the time “A real friend will be there when everyone else leaves you” or things in like manner. Meaning if a person isn’t there, they weren’t really a friend. This isn’t a true statement. I know I love people and would want to be there for them every time. But sometimes situations in my life prevent me from being there. It happens to everyone, but that doesn’t mean I care less for that person. Stop and think about the times in your life you felt sorry that you couldn’t make it to this or that. It happens. But quotes and comments like the above change the way you see your friends and family, unjustly. It’s a bad judgement.
What does this have to do with God and multi-tasking? God can use one situation to directly or indirectly affect many people during it and throughout time because of it. Job’s story is a good example. Here this happened to him many years ago. Over the course of time how many people have read the book of Job? How many have learned not to justify oneself instead of God (which was Job’s error) and not to speak evil about anyone because you could move God against them (the three friends error), how God uses a man to preach and will bring evil into light, and restore with blessings and on and on; from that one situation.
Let’s bring this down to the day we live in. Someone (family X) seems to be doing very well for themselves, big house, nice cars, good job, smiling family photos, vacations and on fire for God. They have some friends that hang out with them and know that well, they do have some faults. Those same friends are going through “situations” that are not so pleasant. In fact they can’t understand how come they don’t have things “easy” like family X has. Their living for God too. These friends get together and start pointing the why family X is this way when they do things like….. and …… and each take turns with their judgements, opinions and things they have seen or heard. Sounds like what Jobs friends were doing and since they were sons of God, they were in His presence while doing so. You know the bible says that where 2 or 3 are gathered in His name there is He in the midst. If you were baptized in His name, you like them are in His name. So the same comments come out, if they didn’t have a good job, such a nice car… would they be so on fire for God… Then out of what, coincidence a “situation” arises in family X. There is no such thing as coincidence. God moves to perfect the heart.
He will deal with all involved to purge that sin out of the body; His body. [Heb 12:8 KJV But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.] [Act 26:18 KJV To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.]
You have to be careful and willing to repent or else you will be purged out of the body. God means what He says. If the sin will not come out of you, you will as sin will come out of the body. [Luk 3:17 KJV] 17 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and will gather the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.]
When you or anyone you know is in a situation, before you open your mouth think “What does the WORD say”. Unity, be about God’s business, a witness of His glory, Who is God!!! Jesus verse flesh. Weight it out. The Word is always right!! Bondage doesn’t come from real chains and prison cells, bondage comes from the darkness of the law. David was a king and in bondage to lust until he repented. Jeremiah was in prison, but was free from the judgements God brought on Israel (safe in the literal prison) because he was doing God’s word. So who is really in bondage? Those who came forth and say I have an issue or those who speak and live in familiarity? If the heart is unrepented its hell bound, weight it out. The Pastor preaches, the Elders preach, the Word of God comes across time and time again, weight it out. The flesh needs to go on the cross. If the old man lives, the soul dies. Try to remember this when the old man is alive in you; if you hurt someone in the body, you hurt Jesus. If you smack them across the face (with words or physically), you smack Jesus across the face. If you do things that shame the church, shame the Pastor, elders and the people there. You did it. You wear the banner of His name.
[Rev 20:12-13 KJV And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.] There’s no room for the blame game. It’s because of this situation or that person. You have to grab ahold of the truth and live in that light. When you fall out of that light back into darkness, repent and get back in the light. God is allowing darkness in your life to bring you back into light of Truth. [Psa 119:67 KJV Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word.]
Perspective matters. God see all of our hearts and the events going on in our lives. He multitasks in such a way that He takes care of as many spirits as possible in one situation. So the next time you want to judge a situation, including your own, stop and think about what the word says. Do an inventory on your heart. Seek His face, pray and open the book.  God is faithful.
[Rom 8:1-2, 28 KJV There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. ... 28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.]

COMMUNION Part 4 of 4

To take the literal bread for communion is a fable, intimating a man can be saved by literally eating.
2 Tim 3:16-4:416 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
4 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
1. Preach the word: where is eat the bread? Reprove, how do you do that with bread? Rebuke,how is that drInk? Exhort with all eating and digestion...etc......
a. The idea that one is not serving communion when taking the literal bread and wine is a huge mistake. How then would you eat and drink damnation if it were only to remembrance service?
b. Is the eating of the bread necessary for salvation? I challenge the ministering population on this question. Don’t say you spiritualize everything. 


Facts: Something’s must be spiritualized Or they could never be true.

How can I take this literally?
Rev 12:1-3
12 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
a. A big woman I would say
b. If it is literal heaven, then she could also fly.
c. if literal sun and moon: she was mighty big to be clothed with the sun and stand on the moon, a little out of proportion I think.
d. She was pregnant on top of it all: this may explain why she was so big. Point made I think.
e. If this is not understood spiritually, It is very far fetched and unbelievable

The kingdom of God was not made known under the law.
The kingdom of God was made known to us by Jesus Christ: Righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.
Rom 14:17-18
17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
18 For he that in these things serveth Christ is acceptable to God, and approved of men.
a. Meat or drink has nothing to do with righteousness, peace or joy in the Holy Ghost.
b. If you continue to keep a literal communion of bread and wine: you are natural and not spiritual.
Mark 14:25

25 Verily I say unto you, I will drink no more of the fruit of the vine, until that day that I drink it new in the kingdom of God.
John 15:5
5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
a. If Jesus is the vine of the grape and we are the branches, this means we have been given the same nature of Christ to produce the fruit of the vine of his word, not a literal vine.
b. The literal wine he drank would not be available to anyone until he comes back for his church. Until then he is the vine and we have the wine from it which is the Holy Ghost.
 
The carnal saints took the literal Lords supper and made it a feast. 

Literal feast:1 Cor 2:13-3:3 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.3 And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.
2 I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.
3 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?
a. The carnal walk as men and not saints of God.
b. To be carnal is not to be able to understand a type or shadow spiritual meaning.
c. Jesus fulfilled the tabernacle as the tabernacle and the high priest who walked in it.
d. Jesus fulfilled the priesthood spiritually: his doctrine given to the apostles became the teachings of eternal life to the church.
e. Paul could not relate the word of God as being the bread which came down from heaven in the form of the Lord Jesus Christ because those whom he ministered were carnal.....They could not see anything in the spiritual sense.
f. The first and second born for instance meant the first born nature and the putting on of Christ through the new birth in the Spirit, by hearing and obeying the Gospel. This is called "Having eaten it up".
g. If we see the spiritual meaning of the carnal ordinances, we have the mind of Christ, because his mind was a spiritual mind, his understanding of law and himself fulfilling it was his mind.
Luke 22:15-16

15 And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:
16 For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God
John 15:25
25 But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.
The feast: is eating now of all the miracles of types and shadows that only make sense after we see Jesus as the fulfilment. The first and second born. The Temple, the High priest, the shewbread, the inner light of the candle, the golden candlesticks, the vail which is to say his flesh. How is it one understands these great truths and accepts the literal bread and wine for memorial or communion? 

THE NEW TESTAMENT
Acts 2:38-39 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
1 Cor 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.
a. Repentance, Baptism and infilling of the Holy Ghost is the new will of God after the death of the testator.
b. When we eat the word and drink of the promises of the new testament we are drinking the cup.
c. He said: This cup is the new testament in his blood......He was merely telling them what the symbol meant.
Heb 9:28
 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.
a. We look for his second coming because we understand and believe the words of his first coming to fulfil the law.

Jesus refused to die in the camp to justify the law, He died without the camp of the law keepers to justify all those who would hear His word and obey Him.


Heb 13:11-13
 For the bodies of those beasts, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned without the camp.
12 Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.
13 Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.
a. Let us go to him without the camp bearing his reproach. What reproach? The reproach of leaving the literal types and shadows for the fulfilment of them.
b. Jesus people no longer take a literal bread as those in the literal camp of Israel.
c. Jesus people who hear and know the truth will leave the camp of the literalists to bear the reproach of them who insist the literal bread must be taken for salvation. Or the literal bread must be taken in order to remember him. This is an abomination to God.


The reading of the will they ate together literally but it was not communion: it was the receiving of the Holy Ghost which placed them in fellowship.

Acts 2:38-42 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
40 And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.
41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.
42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

The Passover lamb
John 1:29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
a. What old testament lamb ever did this? Take away the sin of the world.
b. He said taketh: meaning perpetually a lamb which doesn't need to be offered often or yearly.
c. This is the feast of the new testament saints, not symbols eaten at a literal table, but the word of God eaten into our minds so we may be passed over in judgment.
d. If judgment begin at the house of God where shall the ungodly and sinner appear? In the white throne judgment! Because their sins were not washed away by the word of God.
 
David even understood what the feast stood for and knew it would be fulfilled in Jesus Christ.

Ps 23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
a. The reason God chose David was because he was spiritual.
b. unafraid to spiritualize like David? He saw the Lord as his shepherd, meaning he understood the that the literal shepherd represented something greater, spiritually understood.
c. David did not lie down literally in green pastures: he saw the good shepherd head the literal sheep to spiritually green healthy pastures.
d. David understood still waters to represent the comfort and refreshing of his soul. Spiritual
e. David never walked literally through the valley of the Shadow of death, he understood that the Valley of the SHADOW OF DEATH was the law. The law was what he walked through to make it to the end pleasing God and overcoming the wicked of his native countrymen.
f. God did not walk literally with David but David understood God to be there in the same way a Shepherd would guide and protect his own as he walked with them.
g. What kind of a table suppose it would have been that God prepared for him in the presence of his enemies? A literal one? No! A spiritual one: David was full of the Word and Scriptures concerning Abraham and is ancestors. This he possessed during the tightest situations with his enemies.
h. Anointest is over and over again not just a literal one time anointing. My cup of blessing runs over. He certainly was not talking about a literal cup.
i. Goodness and mercy he felt assured of because he had spiritual understanding. 
 
Acts 2:29-32 Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.
30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;
31 He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.
32 This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.
a. David knew Jesus of his own loins would set on his throne.
b. David had this promise of God and it fed him spiritually.
c. He ate from the understanding he had in the truth.


Jude knew what the feast was
What kind of a feast is a piece of bread with a swallow of wine or grape juice? It is not what a normal individual would call a feast. A feast would consist of a large variety of different foods or a large assortment of breads. It could be a large quantity of bread. Jude knew what the feast was and we should also know what the feast is. 
Jude 1:12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;
1. Those who depend on law for salvation: are clouds without water, the water being the Holy Ghost.
2. Since they trust in the law and not the apostles they are carried about by every wind of doctrine.
3. Who began in Christ but turned to the law: their fruit withered, twice dead, dead through repentance
receiving life from Christ: returning to law leaving the father as prodigals. 
4. They turning to the law, pluckt themselves out by the very root which is Jesus and his apostles Doctrine

COMMUNION Part 3 of 4

As there were those who claim circumcision must be done, there were those back in the days of the Apostles who also kept the Lords supper literally.
Paul says when we come together for church it is not to eat literally, if you're hungry, eat at home.
1 Cor 11:19-2219 For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you.
20 When ye come together therefore into one place, this is not to eat the Lord's supper.
21 For in eating every one taketh before other his own supper: and one is hungry, and another is drunken.
22 What? have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? or despise ye the church of God, and shame them that have not? What shall I say to you? shall I praise you in
a. Heresy is to change the meaning of the word of God deserting the true meaning: to continue to eat the literal feast was to pervert the true meaning derived from types and shadows.
b. Paul clearly states here that the problem was some had interpreted communion with Christ to mean eating a literal supper.
c. Paul clearly states here that THIS IS NOT TO EAT THE LORD'S SUPPER saying they had houses to eat and drink in. This clearly states that the church service is not include, food and drink to fill the literal belly. The heart must be affected for eternal life, not the literal belly.
d. Those who remained literal were right if in fact taking something literal is an ordinance.
e. In fact the ordinance was made clear but not to the one who cannot get past the language of 1 Cor 11 to understand the meaning. Preaching and having church was the ordinances revealed by the apostle Paul.
f. Heresy is taking the word which is fulfilled spiritually and keeping it literal.
g. The guilty will answer to God like the trinitarian who baptizes both in titles and Jesus name to be safe. Something is the matter with this picture: it indicates one does not know what they truly believe.
h. So, literal eating is not a true reflection of what should happen in a church service. The word of God should be eaten by all and all have the same opportunity to hear.
i. To eat literally, allowed many undesirable things to occur, one had more food than another, one is drunken, having drank to much wine, another is hungry not having enough. When the word of God is preached and taught this does not happen, this cannot happen.
j. Heresies, eating in church opposed to eating at home. Foolishness to eat in church what you can eat at home. At home however, you cannot eat truth and drink the spirit from hearing preaching. So if you are hungry don’t wait to go to church because church is never to be had with the literal symbols which represented something greater than themselves.


While they feast with you: what kind of feast was Jude speaking of?
2 Peter 2:13-16 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;
14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:
15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;
16 But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man's voice forbad the madness of the prophet.

Roit in the daytime
The law is darkness and Jesus words was light. Many refused the apostles doctrine as being correct so they believing the types and shadows still to be here: rioted while the truth was revealed.

Spots and blemishes
a. Without spot nor wrinkle: to be unspotted by the world and the law by believing the doctrine of the apostles.
b. To keep the law as a means of salvation in anyway is a spot.
c. To push types and shadows as useful in anyway other than their proper use is to have wrinkle.
d. Look how they sport themselves thinking they have scripture to back up their literal views when In fact they have none.


Going back to the law from the words of the Apostles and grace is to be bewitched.
Gal 3:1-3 O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?
2 This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
3 Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?

1. Christ calls for perfection in the new testament: at least that is the goal. The law can make nothing Perfect, but a bringing in of a better covenant can: the better covenant is the preaching of the word which fulfills the literal bread, the drinking of the Spirit of God and not a drink of literal wine. Acts 2:38 and the apostles doctrine is a better covenant than the types and shadows of the law
2. Heb 7:19 19 For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God. Preaching of the word not eating literal bread.
3. Leaving the Spirit and preaching that brought the Spirit, to go back to eating bread and drinking wine on the literal feast day of Abib 14th, is an abomination to God and it is being bewitched. Making a doctrine more appealing to the flesh than the commandments of Christ. Acts 2:38 contains a commandment to repent and be baptized along with the promise of drinking into the Holy Ghost.
4. Apostle Prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers for the perfecting of the saints....Given up to go back to the law, why? Why? Because it is easier and no study is involved. But this is the beginning of the mystery of iniquity. Disobedient to the apostles doctrine while Claiming salvation through another unapproved method. Law and Grace mixed. The mystery of iniquity: how men can claim to possess Jesus Christ in various way and methods while being disobedient to the apostles doctrine. This is the mystery of iniquity. How man can be in iniquity against the apostles yet proclaim to the world they have salvation. Iniquity is being disobedient to the ministry God set up on this earth through the apostles whereby men can find salvation and be saved. To eat a cracker and drink wine is iniquity, the false church is
built upon iniquity and claim that their leader, who is the false Christ has been given the authority of God here on earth. By this precept millions are duped and lost. God will prove who is the only potentate and high priest of our profession, namely Jesus Christ. 


Balaam forsook the right way in type of those who would embrace truth and turn from it to make the literal a stumbling block to the church.
1 Tim 1:5-8 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:
6 From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;
7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.
8 But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully

a. Balaam being able to hear the voice of God as did some who sat in church feasts, left for the richer more prominent life. Unto Balak the king of Moab. Balak desiring to have Israel cursed by the prophet Balaam, offered Balaam a position and promotion in his kingdom for doing so.
b. As certain men came into the church claiming agreement with the apostles, but without allegiance, changed the truth of God into a lie and served and worshiped the creature more than the creator. Of which Balaam was type and shadow. These evil men who crept into the church unawares, took what they wanted from the doctrine of the apostles and changed the truth of God into a lie. Claiming Christ but using the law unlawfully, by keeping the literal elements of the old testament instead of replacing them with the fulfilled word of God.
c. If the spiritual meaning of the law cannot be seen or determined, the law is good only in the literal sense. There were those who desired to be teachers of the law but had no clue to its spiritual meaning. This means using it in the literal sense without being able to comprehend its spiritual meaning was an unlawful act. Leaven is not yeast in the doe but false doctrine of the Pharisees. Meat did not mean the meat from an animal. I have meat to eat that ye know not of. This meat was the doing of the will of God. To use literal bread with any connection to eternal life is using the law unlawfully. No man is crowned in the ministry except he strive and fight for the faith lawfully. The faith with the spiritual meaning and not the literal and natural.


Wandering stars who wandered from their place in Christ for the law of Moses: To whom is reserved the blackness and darkness of the law forever.
Jude 10-1310 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.
11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.
12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;
13 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.
a. Come curse me this people Balak said to Balaam. I cannot go beyond the word of the Lord,said Balaam, but Balaam taught Balak how to cast a stumbling block before the people by getting them to worship at the altar of baal at Peor. The altar of Baal is a type of going back to the law of Moses in the new testament. Take those who have the commandments of God and entice them to another altar which allows them more liberality. Keeping the literal law and using literal bread and wine is a curse unto Gods people. Yet many who claim to preach the Gospel of Acts 2:38 still practice law when it comes to communion. It seems the Balaams of the new testament have done their job well. The false teachers have managed to convince God fearing men the literal is demanded, using I Cor 11 and the words of Jesus at the last supper. This is the new testament in my blood.....the drink represented the new testament promise of the Holy Ghost purchased with the literal blood of Jesus. Take eat this is my body which is broken for you. The body of Jesus was not yet broken, the cross was not yet taken, Jesus was speaking of the bread representing his body the word of God. Which after his death would be broken for his church. The first message spoken by Peter on the day of Pentecost, was the breaking of the bread. Using old testament scripture that pointed to Jesus as being made Lord.
b. Going before God as Satan presented himself before God could not get God to curse those whom he had blessed. But introduce them to another sacrifice more liberal and more free, brought the evil right into the congregation by a young man of Israel and a young woman of Moab. Brandishing their new found freedom to fornicate and be together right in front of the elders of Israel. It is exactly the same today. Those who take the Eucharist are free to do as they please as long as they honor God by their taking the literal bite and drink.


What does the word of God mean here?
1 Cor 11:23-2423 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.
a. No one before Jesus had ever given the spiritual understanding concerning the feast of passover but Jesus tells the disciples what the typology stands for. Jesus Christ was the word of God in flesh. In another place He said except ye eat my flesh and drink my blood. He was not speaking of his literal body. Here he is giving understanding to the disciples that he was the completion of the loaf of all the scriptures and that as he was broken they also would brake the bread of life
to the lost.
b. This is my body: The church is the body of Christ and it is the bread which will feed the world.
1 Cor 10:17
17 For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread.
a. Because we have eaten the word of God and have drank the Spirit of God we are now the body and bread of the Lord Jesus Christ.
b. We must eat the word and drink the Spirit of God discerning the body which is the church or saints of the living God.


The leaven of the New Testament:
1 Cor 5:6-8 Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?
7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:
8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
a. The old leaven is the law, the law without fulfillment in Christ is leaven or false doctrine.
b. Purge out the old leaven by getting out everything of the law and allow the teachings of Jesus to make you a new creature or lump.
c. Let us keep the feast of the church service without that which the law allowed. The law allowed malice as long as it did not turn to murder. The law allowed wickedness of heart As long as it did not escalate into murder and evil doings.
d. Jesus spake of fulfilling the law: you have heard it said of them of old time thou shalt not commit adultery, but I say whosoever looketh upon a woman to lust after her has committed adultery already in his heart. He was speaking about removing evil thought from the heart before they became acts and deeds.
e. Purge out the old leaven, the teaching of the literal law and preach Christ the fulfilment of it.
f. What the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh God sending his own son in the likeness of sinful flesh condemned sin in the flesh. Jesus condemned what the law let go.
g. The law could make nothing perfect, I can easily understand that the feast of literal food in the passover was not intended to make anyone perfect and could not. But Jesus words given to the apostle could, did and does. 


The feast is kept between us and Jesus

In writing to the church of the Laodiceans Jesus told them where they must change to have fellowship with him. Simply if they would eat his word he would eat their sincerity and they would feast together. Anytime we open our hearts to eat his word he immediately comes in to feast on our obedience and desire to comply. This is to sup with the Lord Jesus, but to eat and drink literal symbols is not going to bring the same results. If we hear his word and keep malice and wickedness in our hearts he will not sup with that. The feast must be kept with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. The literal must removed from the equation.
Rev 3:17-22
 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: 18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
Rev 3:14-1614 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
a. The problem with the Laodiceans was how they supped, they had Jesus on the outside because they had embraced the false teachings of the law and the eating of literal bread, and he could not get in. 
b. The voice of the Lord must be heard on this most important of subjects concerning eternal life, and Jesus word must become the one and only focal point of everyone. There cannot be a mixture of old and new testament if one will be hot and on fire for God. The law makes one cold the faith of Christ and his apostles makes one hot, the mixture of the two makes for a lukewarm saints.
c. The law leaves one in the condition described here: wretched, miserable, poor, blind and naked. Lukewarm: buy of me gold, Jesus words and life was tried in the fire, buying the truth of the New testament is what makes one rich, not literal riches as thought by law. The false church is the rich church with literal gold made temple and articles. The real church is rich in the faith of the truth of the apostles.


Rom 7:24-8:2
 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?
25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.
8 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
a. Paul is simply stating that the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus which comes to fulfil the law, is the only thing which delivers a person from being wretched.
b. The law is the law of sin and death, there is no salvation in the law and no man can be justified by the law. So! The words of Jesus delivers one from the keeping of the old testament letter.
c. No literal bread nor wine can deliver, it keeps one bound and Laodicea was bound because from being more affected by people and the commandments of men than by God, this is what they had to overcome.
d. Paul was saying he served the law of Christ and his apostles with his mind, but with the flesh he saw a law in his members bringing him into captivity to the law of sin which was in his members. How then could he be delivered from this wretched condition? By being in Christ Jesus body and hearing the words of Christ, walking after the Spirit and not after the flesh he would be delivered from this pit. Walking after the doctrines of Christ he would be delivered from the body of lust, sin and death. 
 

Paul confirmed the church service
1 Cor 14:39-15:11
 Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.40 Let all things be done decently and in order.
15 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:
6 After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.
7 After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles.
8 And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.
9 For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.
10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
11 Therefore whether it were I or they, so we preach, and so ye believed
a. Let all things be done decently and in order.
b. He gave understanding on how to have church
c. The Bible is not written around having communion with a piece of bread and a small cup of
wine.

What is the feast?
1 Cor 5:8-12
8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
9 I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:
10 Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world.
11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.
12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?
a. Certainly the feast is not a piece of bread and drink of wine.
b. The feast is who Jesus is, why he came, the changing of the covenants, the continuance of the seed of Abraham in us, the eating of his word and his sacrifice which fulfilled the old testament types and shadow....this is the feast.......not a morsel of bread for the stomach.

c. Notice the feast must be free from the old leaven or the old teachings of types and shadowsIs this not understandable? Is not the fulfilment of these types and shadows the true feast.
d. This is the fly in the ointment of the apothecary, the mixture of old leaven with the new testament commandments of the apostles.
e. If there is a man calling himself a brother still embracing the law with the law of Christ. Oh! by the way, there are two laws not one. If you love me keep my commandments, Jesus gave his commandments to the apostles who wrote them to the new testament church. Jesus clearly has commandments the law never had. Do not have church with a man who is looking to doctrines outside of the apostles doctrine. Feeding themselves without fear, twice dead plucked up by the roots. There is spiritual fornication as well as literal, a spiritual fornicator is one who embraces teachings of the law mixed with Christ. This is old leaven. 

Gal 3:29
29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
a. Knowing we can be the chosen seed through Jesus Christ is part of the feast.
b. Eat the whole lamb: we are to eat all the word of God and digest it into works.
c. What Jesus did to bring us the feast: he became the living sacrifice he had called for In Abel and Cain in the beginning.
d. The sacrifice is tied into every phase of scripture and is the reason men are in contact with God or they are not. Cain refused and lost his contact. Abel’s blood cried to God from the ground because he offered the right sacrifice.
e. The passover was all about the sacrifice, he who obeyed and killed the sacrifice and ate it, was passed over when death came to Egypt and to the first born of both Egyptian and Israelite.
f. Jesus becomes our passover, when we eat the word and drink the spirit in the feast of the Church service.
g. Those who sit in our spiritual services thinking they are alright because they comply by eating a literal supper, are spots and blemishes not receiving the truth but are natural.
h. The natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God. They are foolishness to him because they are spiritually discerned.
i. Just musing: I would never give this understanding of the truth up to be on the greatest of Platforms preaching to the largest crowds and desiring my name in lights. Balaam did this and there are many wonderful men of God who are sincere and brilliantly intellectual who cannot see the truth. While they may have great capabilities and preaching prowess, all of this pales in comparison to knowing the truth and acknowledging it. To hold this truth and continue on in taking literal symbols is to reside in condemnation. This is holding the truth in unrighteousness.
 
God changed the order of the priesthood: because everything in the old order was type and shadow. Decayed and ready to cease, like its priests; who advocated the death of Christ Jesus.
Heb 5:6-10
6 As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.
7 Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared;
8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;
9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;10 Called of God an high priest after the order of Melchisedec.
a. Jesus was made perfect because he brought the faith that would make us ready for eternal Life. The literal bread makes nothing perfect nor affects us in any way other than remaining a type and shadow. The literal was made only to represent the more important and fulfilled. 

b. Upon the understanding I will give to this man Peter, I will build my church. The fact that Peter knew who Jesus was, that he was God in a body, the word of God made flesh, dwelling among us. He therefore used the word of God on the day of Pentecost and Jesus promised to build his church upon this rock. Jesus gave Peter instructions to preach the word and answer the questions of the people with the preached and taught word of God.
c. The church cannot and must not be thought to be built upon any unfulfilled teachings of the Law of types and shadows. If anyone would have known the meaning of Jesus sayings it would most assuredly been Peter. Peter did not offer the Eucharist on the day of Pentecost neither did he give it as the answer of what the speaking in other tongues and the noise of it meant. This is that which was spoken of the prophet Joel....etc.....Joel did not prophesy a literal eating of bread but of an outpouring of the Spirit of God.
 
Why was there a change of the priesthood? Who was Melchizidec? Why did Arron die and the priesthood change, all Old Testament preists die: But Jesus never dies and His priesthood never changes, why?
Answer: His priesthood could never change because His fulfullment was final: never to return to the law. His fulfilling the old with the new will never again change. The word of God preached is the unchanging sacrament.
Heb 7:24-27
24 But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.
25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.
26 For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;
27 Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.
a. Jesus is the new testament priest because there was a necessity to change from a priesthood that died and could only get the people forgiven for one year through the literal tabernacle.
b. Jesus fulfilled the tabernacle and the priesthood which Aaron represented. It was never meant for the priesthood of the old testament to be brought into the new testament. It was never meant by God for any of the types and shadows to be carried over into the new testament.
c. Every article in the tabernacle had a spiritual meaning: stood for something greater than the literal article itself.
d. The law was types and shadows but Abraham lived by faith as do those in the new testament who hear the word of God fulfilled and obey it. Melchisidec showed himself to Abraham after The battle of Chedorlaomer to received tithe of him.
e. Abraham is the type of those who live by the faith of the word of God without mixing it with law, this is the reason Melchisidec came to him.. Jesus became our high priest after the order of Melchisidec, not Aaron, so we may understand we are children of Abraham by faith and not by law or letter. Abraham was before the law and our faith is premised upon that which was before the law so, that the law could be seen and understood as being types and shadows only.
f. The literal bread is of the law, the wine is of the law. It was never meant to be a new testament way into eternal life. The fulfilling of both of those items is the way into eternal life. This is one of the reasons Jesus became our high priest after the order of Melchisedec.


A better covenant not the same covenant; a better bread and better wine: The word and the spirit.

Heb 8:1-6
1 Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens;
2 A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.
3 For every high priest is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore it is of necessity that this man have somewhat also to offer.
4 For if he were on earth, he should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the law:
5 Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount.
6 But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.
a. The true sanctuary and tabernacle is the body of Jesus Christ, the church.
b. Jesus was a priest but did not offer gifts according to the law.
c. The priests of the old serve as types of heavenly things, pertaining to the church, which was Fulfilled by the church.
d. The true tabernacle is the church which the Lord pitched and not man. Man pitched the old testament tabernacle, Jesus pitched the church.
Eph 4:10-13

10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)
11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
e. Jesus ascended after he had first also descended, and gave some, apostles, prophets, evangelists and some, pastors and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, the work of the ministry and the edifying of the body of Christ. A piece of bread and drink of literal wine cannot do this.

Keep the ordinances as I delivered them unto you:

1 Cor 11:17-26
17 Now in this that I declare unto you I praise you not, that ye come together not for the better, but for the worse.
18 For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it.
19 For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you.
20 When ye come together therefore into one place, this is not to eat the Lord's supper.21 For in eating every one taketh before other his own supper: and one is hungry, and another is drunken.
22 What? have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? or despise ye the church of God, and shame them that have not? What shall I say to you? shall I praise you in this? I praise you not.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.
26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come.
Heb 9:1
 Then verily the first covenant had also ordinances of divine service, and a worldly sanctuary.
a. The old testament had ordinance of divine service and a worldly sanctuary, literal ordinances which needed fulfilled by spiritual understanding. Seeing them fulfilled ans the pascal lamb was fulfilled in Christ the lamb of God.
b. The literal temple was a worldly sanctuary the same as the bread is a part of the worldly. The literal ordinances which could not make those in service to them perfect.
c. Only the word of God can deal adequately with the conscience: carnal ordinances were to made to be spiritually understood. These were imposed upon Israel until the time of reformation.
d. Which stood only in meats and drinks. The kingdom of God is not meat or drink but righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.
Heb 9:9-10

9 Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience;
10 Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation.
a. The ordinances Paul delivered where not carnal ordinances but spiritual, he spake of the bread and wine of the last supper but gave the ordinances as being the preaching of the word and communion of the Holy Ghost: this is the church service. Not a place where bread feeds a literal stomach but where the word feeds the mind.
b. Those who feed the bread to their congregations are performing an abomination before God.
c. God can and will overlook this for a time but will require it later when a man should have Studied to show himself approved unto God....
d. To eat anything literally in the house of God is to despise the church of God.
e. If anyone is hungry do not come to church to eat, eat at home and come to church for your soul to be fed. The literal must be fulfilled by the spiritual. The law is spiritual, meaning it Is full of literal things that have a spiritual meaning. A meaning we must know.
2 Tim 2:15
15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

COMMUNION Part 2 of 4

Jesus makes it undeniably clear: Literal bread is not communion.
John 6:55-5855 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.
57 As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.
58 This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.

a. Referring to the literal manna which his people ate, who also lived and died.
b. Speaking of his word as bread, if it is eaten, men shall live forever.

c. Why is this not clear? Because those in groups who believe like the false church will rail.
d. Certainly one would not conclude Jesus to be speaking literally here, but was he referring to a
literal bread and wine as eating him? NO! A million times no. The word is what he was speaking of.
e. This is that bread: Jesus again referring to the literal manna and the fulfilment of it being
himself and the word he spake. 

HERE IS THE DRINK:The Holy Ghost does not come by a literal drink of wine. It comes as it did on the day of Pentecost.
1 Cor 12:1313 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
a. If anyone thirst, let him come unto me and drink.
b. If thou knewest the gift of God and who it was that asked thee to drink, thou wouldest have
asked him and he would have given the living water. The living water is the wine, prefigured
by the blood. When the Spirit is received and drank: the blood has been drunk.
c. It is by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, not by a drink of wine.
d. Men fear to give up their foolishness of embracing the law, did we begin the Spirit and shall
we be made perfect by the flesh? If we received the baptism of the Holy Ghost, do we think
eating a literal bread will enhance that? No! The Spirit of God and the new testament doctrine
of the apostles is far greater than the flesh or the teachings of law. 


Jesus assures them that the natural meat is not everlasting life:
John 6:26-2726 Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled.
27 Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.

a. The meat that endureth unto everlasting life is the Word of God.
b. The doctrine Jesus gave to the apostles is the meat or will of God.
c. As Jesus gave them literal bread, he also gave them their teachings, which believed brings
eternal life.
d. My meat is to do the will of him that sent me.
e. Could it be that Jesus is trying to say: labor not for bread and wine, the kind that perishes?
f. Labor for the understanding of the word of God which endures unto everlasting life. 


The church sells it's birthright when they keep the literal and refused to understand it spiritual.
Heb 12:16 Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.
a. The cup Jesus spake of here in Mt. 26:39 was the cup of suffering. Nothing literal about this cup he speaks of.
Matt 26:39 And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

a. To eat the literal bread for communion or even acknowledge it in a memorial service is to
detract from the power God meant to be given to his word.
b. To sell you birthright in the new testament is to bye the morsel of literal bread as a doctrine
into eternal life.
c. Millions have sold their birthright into eternal life for a lie and morsel of literal bread which
cannot produce eternal life. The saints of God are still confused although they may be sitting
under a strong and powerful ministry, advocating the use of literal bread has anything to do
with eternal life is an abomination. The law makes desolate and Jesus came to revive those
in the spiritual graveyard of desolation by revealing the spiritual meaning of those things
under the law.
d. The false doctrine of the false church: eat a literal bread and continue to be exactly what you
as a good person are. There is none good but one and Jesus was the good shepherd which
gave his life for the sheep. The rich ruler decided to continue following the law and refused
to follow Jesus. Jesus was good because he fulfilled the old testament types and shadows. Jesus
had the words which actually made goodness. This the law does not have. What the law could
not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own son in the likeness of sinful
flesh, condemned sin in the flesh. The sin that the law could not reach was the heart, the law
dealt with the outward but not how the inward should correspond with the outward. 


Are we all great big loaves of bread?
1 Cor 10:16-17
16 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?
17 For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread.
a. The cup of blessing which we bless is having found the Gospel which allows us to drink his Spirit. This is breaking the bread....understanding that the literal drink is the Holy Ghost. Once
the meaning of the natural has been discovered there is no more need for the literal. Once the meaning of the temple was discovered, there was no more need for the temple. Once the meaning
of the priesthood was discovered, there is no more need of the old testament literal high priest. The priesthood is fulfilled in the apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers.
b. To receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost is a blessing.
c. To hear the word from a God sent man who represents the Apostles Doctrine is a blessing.
d. When we eat the word and it becomes our thinking, we then can give that same word out and the Church becomes one bread. One bread by hearing and doing the truth not by eating a piece of bread and drinking a tad bit of wine but hearing the word.
e. We are one bread because we have eaten of that one bread, the word of God
f. We are not one bread because we eat a literal bread...the false church is one literal bread of
the law and by the law shall no flesh be justified. 
 

The birthright is to hear and receive the promise of the Holy Ghost.

The old Testament was fulfilled in Christ: No longer is communion a literal supper. The Old Testament was weak through the flesh, not having sufficient commandments.


1. Eating a literal bread is not a new birth. The false church eats the bread and drinks the wine while living as best they can through their own conscience and fleshly capabilities. They sold
the birthright of the promise to receive the Holy Ghost.
2. This is claiming grace and living the law. By the law shall no flesh be justified.
a. The Catholic church has sold its birth right for it’s holy Eucharist.
b. The Catholic church has succeeded in bringing the literal law into the New Testament where it should not be. We can no longer be saved by O.T. symbolism. It must be by faith in hearing the word of God
c. They have changed the truth of God into a lie to worship and serve the creature.
d. By making literal bread the life and not the Word of Truth the life they have sold their birth right to satisfy the lusts of the flesh.
e. Any church that believes that communion is a literal taking of bread and wine are deceived.
f. The cup of blessing which we bless is that cup of receiving the baptism of the Holy Ghost and promise of eternal life. This is the cup of the new testament, not a literal cup.


The image made like corruptible man is what the law could make: the glory of God can only be obtained by and through the Apostles doctrine.
Rom 1:21-23
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
a. To birds, fourfooted beasts and creeping things, this is what the law can make as an image.
b. The image of God cannot be obtained their old testament types and shadows. Jesus is the
image of the invisible God and his doctrine is the only doctrine that can produce a sacrifice
in the likeness of his image.
c. So returning to the law of types and shadows, cannot make a man in the image of the living
God.
d. They imagined they could keep the literal law without being in obedience to Christ law and
obtain salvation, claiming Christ and living the law is the strong delusion God has sent into
this world to dupe those who do not receive the love for the truth.
e. It really doesn’t matter what false doctrine you have embraced or who the teacher was that
taught you. It doesn’t matter what group or organization you may be in, if the truth revealed
here is, clear, plain and believable but is rejected, the delusion will replace it. The love of the
truth is greatest of all achievements in this life.
f. Holding the truth in unrighteousness, if one knows the truth and does not preach it, but
continues in law pleasing the people and flesh, they will be guilty. To know this truth and
continue eating literal bread and drinking literal wine for communion: is damning. It is like
the man who baptizes in both titles and in the name just to be sure. One is right and the other
is wrong. To do both is a confusion and the man who performs such a baptism is also confused.
 
 
Jesus takes His disciples from the literal unto the spiritual again
John 4:32-3432 But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.
33 Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat?
34 Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.
a. Jesus Christ was clearly saying meat represented doing the will of God.
b. Not a natural meat to eat as the disciples thought.
c. Many today are still caught up in the natural and cannot see the spiritual.
d. To be spiritual is to understand the meaning of a type, shadow, metaphor. allegory.
e. Jesus spake spiritually, using natural things which had greater meaning, Jesus explained
his using meat in the spiritual sense, as a type of doing the will of God.
f. When David said my cup runneth over, he did not mean a literal cup, he meant his cup of
blessings from God.


What is meant by Paul when he calls the rock in the wilderness, that spiritual rock, that rock is Christ?
1 Cor 10:3-4
3 And did all eat the same spiritual meat;4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

a. The manna was the bread from heaven which symbolized the word of God.
b. The water from the rock Moses struck symbolized Christ when he was smitten and the
Holy Ghost was given on the day of Pentecost as a result.
c. The rock and the manna were literal, but they represented as types, something which would
be fulfilled at the coming of Jesus Christ and the outpouring of the Holy Ghost after hearing
the Gospel message.
d. The water coming out of the Rock symbolized the Holy Ghost.
e. The Rock itself was a symbol of Christ our Rock who was God.
f. For something to possess spiritual meaning; it must represent something greater in meaning
than its literal self. 
 

The word of God has been wrested concerning communion:
Wrest: 5186 natah (naw-taw');
a primitive root; to stretch or spread out; by implication, to bend away (including moral deflection); used in a great variety of application (as follows): 
KJV-- + afternoon, apply, bow (down, -ing), carry aside, decline, deliver, extend, go down, be gone, incline, intend, lay, let down, offer, outstretched, overthrown, pervert, pitch, prolong, put away, shew, spread (out), stretch (forth, out), take (aside), turn (aside, away), wrest, cause to yield.
a. The scripture is not interpreted correctly if it is not read figuratively.
b. The reason: Paul referred back to what Jesus said to his disciples under the law.
So they would once again remember the interpretation of what Jesus said, not that
communion was literal but that communion was spiritual and the words of the Lord
were allegorical or a shadow as when he spoke of the bread and the meat previously
mentioned. Jesus was in the old testament and was a type and shadow himself, a type of
the body of Christ the church. The words he spoke, he used the literal to make clear the
spiritual understanding to the apostles. At the last supper this was the case. They fully
understood that they would fulfill the literal on the day of Pentecost.
c. When Jesus spoke of meat he did not mean natural meat.
d. When Jesus spoke of bread he did not mean literal bread.
e. When Jesus took the cup and spoke of the wine he was referring to his Spirit which is the
blood of the New Testament.
f. When Jesus spoke of the bread he was speaking of the Word of God in preaching in the New
Testament.
g. This is what Paul was doing when he quoted Jesus, he was referring back to symbols to make
the point of spiritual communion.
2 Pet 3:16
16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
a. 1Cor 11 is scripture that if interpreted wrongly can mean a mans salvation.
b. If a man truly believes the symbols are communion he will lessen the value of the Word of God
in his own life and be destroyed.
