The Meaning of Communion

When Jesus celebrated the Passover with His disciples (or students) he took bread and
broke it and gave a piece to all of them. He also took wine and gave them all a little to
drink. He said the bread and the wine represent His body and His blood which he gave to
give life to the world (all those who receive Him in the world):

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. (1 Corinthians 11:23-26)

Jesus gave the first Communion service at the feast of Passover because Jesus is the
´Passover lamb of God´. We cannot eat His flesh or drink His blood, but by saying that
the bread and wine represent His body and blood we understand the salvation of God
to us is like the salvation of the people of Israel in Egypt:

For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in
the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute
judgment: I am the LORD.

And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see
the blood, I will pass over you,  and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you,
when I smite the land of Egypt.

So likewise our salvation comes from feeding on the sacrificial lamb and the sign of the
blood on us. We cannot use His blood, but since He is in His people their own blood
will do
. If Jesus is in us, then is not His blood our blood also? Two spirits in one body
share the same blood. This is why the people of God are commanded in the gospel
to suffer as Christ suffered: they share all things with Him; suffering and eternal life.

And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we
suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. For I reckon that the sufferings
of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be
revealed in us. (Romans 8:17-18)

Preachers who teach that Jesus did all the suffering for us are leading people away from

salvation, canceling the commandments of Jesus in His gospel and bringing God´s wrath
on themselves. If we do not share with Christ in suffering we should not expect to share
His glory.

By obeying the commandments of Jesus we are ´saved´ because the blood of Jesus
(which is also our own) is shed and covers us. ´Salvation´ is being covered and
protected in the day when God´s stored up wrath is revealed against mankind for their
love of evil and their hatred of good. We are like a house and when God sends His
plagues on the world we will share in the curses of God unless Jesus is in us and the
blood of holy sacrifice is on our door.

The Holy Spirit is the portion of the spirit of Jesus sent from Him to be our Passover
meal, our life and our salvation. This Spirit is life because, like the Passover lamb, it is
the seal of God to protect us in the day of God´s judgment. Those who have the Spirit
are sealed by God and will not be destroyed; they are promised eternal life.

When Jesus went to Paradise he gave some of His spirit to all of His disciples. This
is what is represented by the bread and wine - the Spirit of Jesus divided up and
distributed to His disciples. Of course we do not eat the flesh of Jesus, it is a way of
understanding something spiritual using physical objects. The disciples received their
portions of the spirit of Jesus on the Day of Pentecost.

This Spirit is the gift of life that can heal men from the death we inherit from the fall
of Adam and Eve.  The downfall of Adam and Eve was that they wanted to decide what
was good and evil for themselves. They didn´t want to trust in the wisdom of God to
decide that for them. So the ¨Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil¨ is really
¨Freedom¨ or ¨Democracy¨.

By choosing ¨Freedom¨ we lost our natural obedience to God and were cursed with
the need to always ¨choose¨ to do what is good. This is the cause of our suffering and
death: we could not choose to do what is good. God is merciful, but we are not. God is
generous, but we are not. God is not deceived, but we are easily deceived. We are not
as wise as God so we always make mistakes by choosing to do evil things. This corrupts
the whole world and leads to our misery and death.

How can we be saved from this curse? We must have the wisdom of God, the mercy
of God and the truth of God within us to be able to ¨choose¨ to do what is good. Jesus
came to give all of this to everyone who is baptized in the Holy Spirit. If anyone
obeys the teachings of Jesus as written in His Gospel, then Jesus will give them a
portion of His Holy Spirit. It is His promise in His Gospel:

He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that
loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us,
and not unto the world? Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep
my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode
with him. (John 14:21-23)

And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given
to them that obey him. (Acts 5:32)

Once the Holy Spirit is in you, you can ¨choose¨ to obey God. The wisdom of God, given
by the Spirit, allows His people to make the right choices:

Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
(2 Corinthians 3:17)

If you sin after being given the Holy Spirit it is a sign that you are being careless and
associating with wicked people who will corrupt you:

Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners. (1 Corinthians 15:33)

The Holy Spirit, sent from Jesus, proclaimed in the Communion, is the gift of eternal
life and the freedom from the curse received from the mistake of Adam and Eve. The
wine is the blood shed in sacrifice, both of the saints and Jesus. The breaking of the
bread is the breaking of the bodies in sacrifice, both of the saints and Jesus. As Jesus
shed His blood and His body to receive glory so do the saints, which share in the
sufferings of Jesus.

Very few people actually receive the Holy Spirit, but only because they will not
obey the teachings of  Jesus.  Jesus taught us to forsake the world, seek God, give away
your riches, forgive your enemies and not to resist evil done against us. This requires
all to forsake the teachings of your church and your parents, disobey the government
and to trust in the truth of what Jesus taught. This level of faith in Jesus is very hard
to find and that is why most churches are filled with people who cannot choose to do
good. They are still slaves to sin because they do not have the Holy Spirit in them.

We need the Holy Spirit to obey God because we are foolish! The Communion
reenactment of the Last Supper is a graphic demonstration of Jesus giving a portion
of His Holy Spirit. However, we can only get the Holy Spirit by obeying the teachings
of Jesus!

Do not take Communion or claim to be a Christian unless you are obeying the teachings
of Jesus! Communion symbolizes the salvation of God by the gift of Jesus living within us.
If you are not obeying Christ, He does not live in you and you profane His name.

Whenever people gather in a ´church´ and use the name of Jesus while at the same
time having impure hearts that reject the commandments of Jesus in His gospel, they
are cursing themselves. Like Judas, the betrayer of Jesus who also ate the Passover
meal with Jesus, the false Christians will receive ´damnation´ rather than finding
salvation. This is why the Christian churches are filled with people sick in both mind
and body:

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.

(1 Corinthians 11:27-30)

The Origin of the Passover, Last Supper, Communion and Salvation:

(Exodus Chapter 12)

012:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt
012:002 This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall
        be the first month of the year to you.
012:003 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
012:004 And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and
        his neighbour 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.
012:005 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year:
        ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:
012:006 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.
012:007 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.
012:008 And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire,
        and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.
012:009 Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast
        with fire; his head with his legs, and with the purtenance
012:010 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.
012:011 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.
012:012 For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will
        smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and
        beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute
        judgment: I am the LORD.
012:013 And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses
        where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you,
        and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I
        smite the land of Egypt.
012:014 And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall
        keep it a feast to the LORD throughout your generations; ye
        shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.
012:015 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.
012:016 And in the first day there shall be an holy convocation, and
        in the seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to you;
        no manner of work shall be done in them, save that which every
        man must eat, that only may be done of you.
012:017 And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in
        this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land
        of Egypt: therefore shall ye observe this day in your
        generations by an ordinance for ever.
012:018 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at
        even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and
        twentieth day of the month at even.
012:019 Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for
        whosoever eateth that which is leavened, even that soul shall
        be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a
        stranger, or born in the land.
012:020 Ye shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall
        ye eat unleavened bread.
012:021 Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto
        them, Draw out and take you a lamb according to your families,
        and kill the passover.
012:022 And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood
        that is in the bason, and strike the lintel and the two side
        posts with the blood that is in the bason; and none of you
        shall go out at the door of his house until the morning.
012:023 For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and
        when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side
        posts, the LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer
        the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you.
012:024 And ye shall observe this thing for an ordinance to thee and
        to thy sons for ever.
012:025 And it shall come to pass, when ye be come to the land which
        the LORD will give you, according as he hath promised, that ye
        shall keep this service.
012:026 And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say unto
        you, What mean ye by this service?
012:027 That ye shall say, It is the sacrifice of the LORD's passover,
        who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt,
        when he smote the Egyptians, and delivered our houses. And the
        people bowed the head and worshipped.
012:028 And the children of Israel went away, and did as the LORD had
        commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they.
012:029 And it came to pass, that at midnight the LORD smote all the
        firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh
        that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that
        was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle.
012:030 And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants,
        and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for
        there was not a house where there was not one dead.
012:031 And he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, Rise up,
        and get you forth from among my people, both ye and the
        children of Israel; and go, serve the LORD, as ye have said.
012:032 Also take your flocks and your herds, as ye have said, and be
        gone; and bless me also.
012:033 And the Egyptians were urgent upon the people, that they might
        send them out of the land in haste; for they said, We be all
        dead men.
012:034 And the people took their dough before it was leavened, their
        kneadingtroughs being bound up in their clothes upon their
012:035 And the children of Israel did according to the word of Moses;
        and they borrowed of the Egyptians jewels of silver, and
        jewels of gold, and raiment:
012:036 And the LORD gave the people favour in the sight of the
        Egyptians, so that they lent unto them such things as they
        required. And they spoiled the Egyptians.
012:037 And the children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth,
        about six hundred thousand on foot that were men, beside
012:038 And a mixed multitude went up also with them; and flocks, and
        herds, even very much cattle.
012:039 And they baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they
        brought forth out of Egypt, for it was not leavened; because
        they were thrust out of Egypt, and could not tarry, neither
        had they prepared for themselves any victual.
012:040 Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in
        Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years.
012:041 And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty
        years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the
        hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt.
012:042 It is a night to be much observed unto the LORD for bringing
        them out from the land of Egypt: this is that night of the
        LORD to be observed of all the children of Israel in their
012:043 And the LORD said unto Moses and Aaron, This is the ordinance
        of the passover: There shall no stranger eat thereof:
012:044 But every man's servant that is bought for money, when thou
        hast circumcised him, then shall he eat thereof.
012:045 A foreigner and an hired servant shall not eat thereof.
012:046 In one house shall it be eaten; thou shalt not carry forth
        ought of the flesh abroad out of the house; neither shall ye
        break a bone thereof.
012:047 All the congregation of Israel shall keep it.
012:048 And when a stranger shall sojourn with thee, and will keep the
        passover to the LORD, let all his males be circumcised, and
        then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one
        that is born in the land: for no uncircumcised person shall
        eat thereof.
012:049 One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the
        stranger that sojourneth among you.
012:050 Thus did all the children of Israel; as the LORD commanded
        Moses and Aaron, so did they.
012:051 And it came to pass the selfsame day, that the LORD did bring
        the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt by their
