The Lord’s Supper

I Cor. 11:16-34

 

Background: Jesus instituted two ordinances for the New Testament Believers:

            Baptism- Outward manifestation to an inward decision and commitment (Soteriology)

            Lord’s Supper (Communion)- New fellowship meal to commemorate the Lord’s death

                        and resurrection

            First was celebrated on the Feast of the Passover (Ex. 12 Final Plague)

            Passover- Old Testament (Passaver Angel), New Testament (Jesus’ Blood)

 

The Details: I Cor. 11:22-34

            Vs 23-26 Took bread- broke it as the symbol of Christ’s body

                        Took the cup (OT Wine)- Symbol of the blood

                                    Gave thanks for each one

                                    We do in remembrance of Jesus

                                    Scheduled- to be determined by each local church

                                    Show the Lord’s Death

            Vs. 27-32  Circumstances and Consequences

                        To be taken worthily

                        Unworthily- You will be held guilty and suffer damnation, condemnation

 

                        We are to examine ourselves: Vs 28 Test, prove

                                    Vs. 26 Proclaim the Lord’s Death -true believer

                                                Have accepted the work of the cross

                                                And believe in the Lord Jesus, the Christ as your Savior

                        We are to judge ourselves – to separate, look into, pick apart

                                    Vs. 31 Look into our lives, so that God does not have to

                                    Eph . 4:26 Take care of any sin….

                                    Matt. 5:23 An Ought

                                    Psalm 66:18-20 Regard iniquity 

                                                Sins of commission (Outwardly)

                                                Sins of Omission (those “items” that you have omitted)

                                                            Decalogue, Law of Expediency, James 4:17)

 

            Vs. 30 Condemnation (seriousness and gravity )

                        Weak- lacking spiritually, without backbone, continued bad decisions

                        Sick-chronic (continual) illness, sick, feeble

                        Sleep (Death)

            Vs. 33- to be done together in “Comm-Union” with the Lord

Memory Verse: I Cor. 11:26

“For as often as you eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death

Until He come.”

Vision Casting Service

 

Acts 28

Be like the Maltan’s (Island of Melita)

Opportunity or Interruption

New Year’s Resolution (Vision and Mission)

 

  1. Vs. 2Be Kind (Great Kindness)

Kindled a fire

Welcomed everyone- despite the rain and cold weather

 

  1. Vs. 7 Chief man of the island, Publius

Received and house them…. Courteously

 

  1. Vs. 10 They honoured them with many honours

Laded (over abundance-plethora) with all things necessary

 

            Sounds like Onesiphorus: II Tim 1:16-17

            Refreshed me, not ashamed, sought me, ministered

 

Will you look at life’s events (God’s Sovereignty) as an opportunity and not an interruption.

 

 

            Memory Verse: Galatians 6:10

The First Advent

John 19:36

 

Jesus birth and earthly ministries includes over 300 prophesies and up to 500, more than 700 years earlier

 

Mathematician Peter Stoner counted the probability of just one person fulfilling just 48 of the prophesies found in the Old Testament (Tanakh) would be one in 10 followed by 157 Zeros)

 

All 324 individual prophesies to be fulfilled would be a number beyond any comprehension!

 

            Messianic Prophesies- The Messiah or anointed one

                        Psalm 2:2- Against the anointed one

                        Psalm 132:10- Do not turn away from the anointed one

                        Psalm 132:11 from the lineage of David (From Boaz and Ruth) (Matt. 1:5,16)

 

            Titles of this Messiah

                        Isaiah 42:1- a servant of the Lord (Doulos- willing to serve)

                        Numbers 24:17- Star from Judah (The Maji )

                        Isaiah 11:1 The Branch that bears much fruit

Isaiah 9:6-7, 32:1, Jeremiah 23:5, Zech. 9:9 The King who will rule in righteousness

 

            Linking of Scripture to Scripture

                        Isaiah 7:14 --------------- Matthew 1:18-23  Fulfillment of Jesus birth

                        Hosea 11:1--------------- Matthew 2:15        Jesus from Egypt

                        Zech. 9:9-----------------Matthew 21:1-5      Jesus Triumphal Entry

                        Psalm 34:20 ------------ John 19:31-37         Jesus Death on the Cross

 

            “Types” of Messianic Prophesies

                        Adam is a type of Christ- actions affected a great many of people

                        The rock that produced water- Jesus as the living water

                        The feast of the first fruits- Jesus as the first fruit from the dead (Resurrection)

                        Boaz as the type of Christ the redeemer       

 

            Just a few others:

                        Born in Bethlehem, preceded by a messenger, Entry on a donkey, betrayed by a

                        Friend, sold for 30 Pieces of Silver, born of a virgin, silent before his accusers,

                        Given vinegar (gall-myrrh) on the cross, no broken bones, raised from the dead

 

            Memory Verse: John 20:31

            “But these have been written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name.”

Seven Year Tribulation-“Metanoeo”

English- Repent- turn completely  away from

Meta- change, noeo- thinking

 

            Tribulation Judgements: Seals, Trumpets, and now the Vials/Bowls

 

            This is will be the most severe of the Judgments

 

            Tribulation Objectives: Reconciliation of Israel to their God

                                                God’s wrath and punishment of the sins of mankind

                                                (Through Metanoeo- only way to salvation Acts 2:38)

 

            First bowl- ugly, festering sores on those that had the mark of the beast (666)

                        Rev. 7:9- tribulation saints will not be affected

            Second bowl-Oceans turn into blood as liken unto a dead person (sea life perished)

 

            Third bowl-Rivers and fresh water also turn into blood

                        Angels proclaim the justification of these judgment

 

            Fourth bowl- Scorching of the sun, seared with intense heat

                        Still the remaining inhabitants refuse to repent

 

            Fifth Bowl-kingdom of the beast is plunged into great darkness

                        Pain and suffering so great- people are gnawing their tongues

 

            Sixth bowl- River Euphrates is dried up- i preparation for the great battle (Armageddon)

                        Three uncleaned spirits (frogs like-demons) coming out of the mouths of Satan,

                        Antichrist, false prophet going out to deceive the world one last time

 

            Seventh Bowl- “Atmosphere”  Lightning, earthquakes so severe…..

                        Jerusalem is split into three parts, cities of the world collapse, islands are flooded,

                        Mountains disappear, giant hailstones (100 pounds)

                        Babylon the Great is fallen and destroyed- includes the revenge of the innocent

                        Setting up for the Battle of Armageddon
