I Corinthians 11:23 "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;"

This then is the Passover service, for Christ became our "Passover". Communion is the Passover, and it is done in remembrance of our Lord's sacrifice on the Cross. Jesus Christ paid the price for one and all times so that you and I could partake of the Holy Communion. This is the most reverent moment in all Christianity, and it is done so that all Christians will take of the cup and the bread for the sake of keeping focused on the shed blood and stripes that Jesus took for our sins. It is the most precious moment of our worship.

Keep yourself covered because of the angels. If you are part of the bride of Christ then this is directed to you. Our veil is Jesus Christ. You will be held accountable as to how you treat the Lord's table and those precious things that are part of our Lord's table.

When you take on the blood of Christ you take on the veil, which causes the death angel Satan to pass over you. Satan will pass over you, your house, and over your family members if they too trust in Christ. When we have the veil of Christ over us we then receive the blessings of Almighty God.

I Corinthians 11:24 "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."

Jesus Christ's body received the stripes, and we receive the healing. If you ever want to take Communion at home, this is the chapter that we are to remember, and read for this important time. Read these Scriptures from the twenty third verse on, and partake of the bread and the cup in Jesus name. This makes a good home Communion. That healing is just as sure today as it was in Jesus day, and we do it all "in remembrance of Him".

I Corinthians 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."

Jesus took the wine cup and stated exactly what the purpose the Communion cup was for. The purpose of taking the wine cup and drinking it, was to remember the shed blood of Christ that was given at the cross of Calvary. We do it as a symbol, that in remembrance of that wine reminds us of the blood, and when we repent it brings forgiveness for our sins, for we are sinners. But we are to take the cup with our mind focused reverently and honestly set upon Christ the only perfect blood that ever walked the earth in the flesh.

It is our Father's love toward us that He himself paid the price for us, so that we would have forgiveness for our sins. So that we ourselves could enter back into the realm of God's perfection. We take on Christ's perfection, when our sins are laid on Him at our repentance. That is why it is absolutely required that our prayers are offered in "Jesus' name", for there is no other name under heaven whereby we can be saved and approach the throne of God.

I Corinthians 11:26 "For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do show the Lord's death till He come.""

Every time that you take the cup and eat of the bread from the Communion table you are showing both God and man that you believe that Jesus Christ accomplished this at the cross. He paid the price for our sins. He took the stripes and we receive the healing and his perfect blood was shed in sacrifice for our sins. He did it all for us and he had not one complaint. He shed the blood to bring forgiveness for our sins.

This is the only reason that you take the Communion, and the Communion is the Passover, for Christ became our Passover when His blood was shed. That precious blood of Christ must be placed over the door posts of our hearts or minds, and the death angel Satan will pass over you. It is the veil, that you place over your head, which is your mind for your protection. It will protect us even in our generation after Satan and his angels are here on earth in person.

Satan is called the death angel, not because he has any power to put you to death, but only because if you worship him, instead of waiting for Christ, when he comes to earth claiming he is Christ, it may well result in the death of your soul on judgment day. In that respect he may cause the death of your soul because after the "Millennium", if you haven't learned, by then to tell the difference between what is HOLY (Christ Jesus) and what is PROFANE (Satan), God will judge you guilty at "The Great White Throne of Judgment" and God will put your soul to death just as He does Satan's soul in the "Lake of Fire". (TO BE NO MORE!) You won't even be remembered by anyone throughout eternity. 

Remember back in Daniel 9:27 where Daniel wrote, "and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease,..."? The "sacrifice and the oblation" that will end in most church houses is the Communion, and it will end because they will think that the True Christ has come. In ignorance their traditions and their church systems will tell them that Jesus Christ is here, and that the Communion is no longer necessary.

They will have bought Satan's lie, and they will follow Satan when he commits the "abomination of desolation", by this desolator, and calls himself God.

If you have bought into Satan's lie you will also stop the Communion at that time. Remember, and this is important, you will not see the True Christ while you are still in your flesh body, so if someone tells you to stop taking Communion, and you are still in your flesh, then be aware. Keep right on taking of the table of the Lord as long as you are in this flesh and blood body Why?. Because when the real Jesus Christ returns you will instantly, in the blink of an eye be changed into a spirit being with a perfect spiritual body, No more flesh and blood! 

So Paul is warning us that we should not partake of the table of the Lord in a irresponsible manner, for we take it to remember the Lord's death. To remember the "crucifixion" which includes the when, what, where and why for the death of our Lord. Each of these points are important to our knowledge. For to teach Christ crucified, all four of these things must come forth, or you have not given the full story.

The Kenites, descendants of Cain,  who have mixed in with Judah/Jews brought about Christ's crucifixion, and it happened in Jerusalem, where it was prophesied many years prior.

Genesis 3:15 "And I [God} will put enmity between thee [Satan] and the woman [Eve], and between thy seed [the Kenites] and her Seed [Jesus Christ]; It [Christ] shall bruise thy [Satan's] head, and thou [Satan] shalt bruise His [Christ's] heel."

Eve's Seed is Jesus Christ, while Satan's seed are the children, to the last generation, called the "Kenites. When we take the word "seed back to the Strong's Hebrew dictionary it is # 2233; "zirmah" and in the Greek that is called "sperma". We call that in the English "sperm" and it is the "Posterity, carnally, child, fruitful." We know from Luke 3:23 to 38 that Jesus was of the lineage or blood line of Eve. Adams posterity is through Seth, and Satan's posterity is through "Cain". The Kenites are of the seed of Cain, who is the physical son of Satan.

John 8:44 "Ye [the Jewish Kenites] are of your father the devil, and the lust of your father ye will do. He [Cain] was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he [Satan] speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he [Satan] is a liar, and the father of lies."

Two things to point out here about this verse, #1. is that Satan the devil is the father of lies, and #2. is that the first Murderer is Cain, who is the offspring or seed of Satan through Eve. It is the offspring of Cain which are the Kenites that "bruised Christ's heel" on the cross, and not the offspring of Israel through his son Judah [the real Jews]. In the Kenites own ignorance they sealed their own destruction when they crucified Jesus. Had they not murdered Christ on the cross, the price for sin would not have been paid, and it is all in the perfect plan of God.

The death took place on the exact moment that God prophesied it would from the book of Daniel. Seventy times seven weeks of years, minus one week, to the exact day; four hundred and ninety years minus seven, from the time of Nehemiah's return to build the streets and walls of Jerusalem, the price was paid.

The "why" is the most important part of the crucifixion, for we all know that we fall short of God's standards because we are weak within our selves. But when by the Holy Spirit we take Christ into ourselves, we become strong. Through the shed blood of Christ we have that way to salvation, back to fellowship with the Father. When we are part of the body of Christ, we become royalty of the very throne of God. Then God takes our life and molds us all over again into an active and helpful child of the living God. This is what the real meaning of Passover is. A renewing of our mind in remembrance of Christ.

Our remembrance of the nails being driven into his hands and feet as he was nailed  to the cross, as they placed that crown of thorns on Jesus' head and the blood flowed down his head. You can see the scorn that the Kenite/Jews shouted at Him as he hung on that cross. Then while He hung there he taught the twenty second Psalm to those around watching, and the Roman guard approached and ran that spear through His side and into his heart. My fellow Christian, this is what our remembrance is all about. It is our thoughts, of the life that was drained from Christ physical body, and those scars on Jesus' Body were taken for our sins, and this is what we are to focus on when we take of the bread at Communion. When we draw that cup of wine to our mouth, it is in remembrance of His precious blood that flowed from the crown of thorns on His head, and blood that dripped from His side when that spear pierced through Him. 

 It is the sacrifice that Christ gave that we are to remember at the table of the Lord, and any other use of The Lord's table is to take of that table "unworthily".

I Corinthians 11:27 "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."

The bread is the bread that is set aside for Communion, and the cup is the wine that is to be taken at the table of the Lord. It is the cup that signifies the blood of the Lord, we are to drink only at the table of the Lord. That cup brings forgiveness for your sins and makes you a new creature.

Most churches  misinterpret this and say that "you have to examine yourself to see if you are worthy of taking of the table of the Lord", and they are on very dangerous ground. If you or any man waits until you/they are perfect to receive the bread and cup of the Lord, then no one would ever take of that table, for there is no one worthy. The word here is "UNWORTHILY", and it is the condition of your mind; You are not the subject nor the object of the taking of the Communion.

Christ is the one that is perfect and it is to examine His perfection that makes you worthy of taking of the cup. Why would anyone that did not believe in the crucifixion want to take of the cup anyway?

I Corinthians 11:28 "But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup."

Paul is asking you personally, what are you thinking about when you are partaking of the cup and eating of the bread of the Lord's table? 

Examine yourself and see what your motives are when you take that cup to your lips. If your remembrance does not go back to the cross and the price that was paid there, then don't partake of the Holy Communion. If you can't remember those events that surround the crucifixion, then examine yourself for what is in your mind. If your mind is not completely on the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ, than don't take that cup. That is the only thing that matters.

I Corinthians 11:29 "For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body."

If your mind is not in that remembrance mode, then you are drinking to your own damnation. Did you get what the subject here is "not discerning the Lord's body". You had better not be thinking about those sins that you have committed; Your entire focus better be on the Lord's Body which was crucified for your sins. 

It is Jesus Christ that was able to make the sacrifice for the sins of those that would repent. Get your mind off those traditions of men, that most churches like to draw you to when you partake of the table of the Lord, and onto the only place that God says is worth of consideration at this time. Examine yourself!  What is in your mind and thoughts before you go to the table of the Lord.

I Corinthians 11:30 "For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep."

To "Sleep" is to be spiritually dead, and many are spiritually weak and sickly because they do not partake of the True Bread, which is Jesus Christ. It is through His stripes that we are healed; they play church instead of concentrating on the one focal point, Jesus, the One who was pure. It is through Christ that God's love will pour into your soul, and fill your being. This is the one time to realize, that you don't play Christian, for you either are, or you are not.

Those that do not understand the covering of the head that Paul is talking about, are spiritually dead. Jesus Christ is our covering.

I Corinthians 11:31 "For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged."

Can you truly judge yourself? The problem is that we always tend to show leniency towards ourselves when it comes time to judge ourselves. We let a lot of things that God hates fall through the cracks, and overlook many of our shortcomings. A man simply can't judge himself. If you are wanting to judge yourself perfect before you take communion, then forget it. You will never be ready, because there will always be something that will hinder your perfection. But, when you consider the body of Christ, you had better know that Christ was worthy!, if you take of the cup.

Only God can judge man and he knows your heart and what is in your mind. This is why we must repent, and then focus on the cross of Christ. Then you are forgiven of your sins, and you are ready to take of the table of the Lord.

I Corinthians 11:32 "But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world."

When we are in Christ and we do wrong, then expect that God will make the corrections in our life. When God does the correcting it is just, and not as the justice that this world gives. If you are a servant of God, expect to be tested by God, for in the testing we get our strength. God loves His children and He does not want his children to be destroyed when the rest of the world is destroyed. 

I Corinthians 11:33 "Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another."

Paul is urging the Corinthians and you and me, that when we come together to partake of the table of the Lord, do it right.

Having covered all of that, lets now take communion.

Let's pray giving thanks to our Lord for becoming our passover when He shed His perfect blood at the cross, paying the price for our sins.

I Corinthians 11:24 "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."

I Corinthians 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."

I Corinthians 11:26 "For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do show the Lord's death till He come.""

Thank you Lord. We'll remember to be watching for the spurious messiah who will first come to earth claiming to be you. We will endure until the end, waiting patiently for your return and we will not be deceived into worshiping Satan in ignorance, for we know that at your return we will instantly be changed from our flesh and blood bodies into our spiritual bodies.
