BIBLE STUDY - COMMUNION.
Lord's Supper is a sacrament ordained by Christ Himself, and intended for the
edification and refreshment of true believers.
But when people are taught that all persons ought to come to the Lord's
Table, whether they have faith or not; and that all alike receive Christ's body
and blood who receive the bread and wine, I believe their souls are in great
danger. No man eats Christ's body and drinks Christ's blood except the justified
And none are justified until they believe and have accepted Jesus Christ
as their personal saviour. The Lord's Supper is a symbol of His death. We
remember His death and we look forward to His return.
Lord's Supper is to commemorate His broken body and His shed blood until He
comes again. The believers eat broken bread and drink the fruit of the vine. It
is communion of the body and blood of Jesus Christ, 1 Corinthians 10:16 - 17,
"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? For we, being many, are one bread and one body; for we all partake of
that one bread".
read in Matthew 26:26 - 28, 'And as they were eating, Jesus took bread,
and broke it, and gave it to His disciples and said, "Take,
eat; this is My body". Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it
to them, saying, "For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed
for many for the remission of sins, But I say to you, I will not drink of this
fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My
Father’s kingdom”. The bread that was used at the first supper was
unleavened bread the same that was used at the Passover. The fruit of the vine,
Matthew 26:29, not fruit juice or anything else, but wine. The Bible says some
even got drunk, see 1 Corinthians 11:21.
writes in 1 Corinthians 11:23 - 34, "For I have received from the Lord
that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night that
He was betrayed took bread; and when he had given thanks, He broke it and said,
"Take eat; this is my body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance
of Me". In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying,
"This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink
it, in remembrance of Me".
Verse 26, 'For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim
the Lord's death till He comes.
Verse 27, 'Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord in
an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord'.
Verse 28, 'But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that
bread and drink of that cup'.
Verse 29, 'For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks
judgement to himself, not discerning the Lord's body'. The Lord's supper was to
be eaten worthily, that is, in simple faith appropriating the benefits for which

together for judgement'.
