The Murmuring and Complaining

As I learned to study the Bible I realized what is in the NT, is also in the OT.  This is called, “foreshadowing.”  Why, is this common place in the Bible?

God does not change His ways.  I have been sharing the teachings of Jesus on the Eucharist and now I want to show how this came forward from the OT, in this place as there are others.  (Will get to them when I do the writings on the Apostles.)

Beginning with Exodus 15:22

The Israelite’s were thirsty.  They had come out of the Red Sea and were in a desert.  They begin to complain and murmur against Moses/God.  They went to the waters at Marah  and could not drink it as it was bitter.  So the Lord corrected this but Scripture also says:

“He made for them a statute and an ordinance and there he put them to the test./He said, “If you listen carefully to the voice of the Lord your God, and do what is right in his sight, and give heed to his commandments and keep all his statues, I will not bring upon you any of the diseases that I brought upon the Egyptians; for I am the Lord who heals you.”

Yet after seeing the miracles of being freed from slavery, coming through the Red Sea, the Israelite’s were still complaining saying:

“If only we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the fleshpots and ate our fill of bread; for you have brought us out to this wilderness to kill the whole assembly with hunger.”

The Lord said to Moses, “I am going to rain bread from heaven for you, and each day the people shall go out and gather enough for that day./In that way I will test them, whether they will follow my instruction or not.”

Of course Moses and Aaron told them all of this and then the Lord spoke to Moses and said:

“At twilight you shall eat meat and in the morning you shall have your fill of bread; then you shall know that I am the Lord your God.”

This foreshadowed all the murmuring and complaining which the Israelite’s did at the teachings of Jesus on the Eucharist.  Jesus was also giving to the Israelite’s “statutes and ordinances” to follow in His teachings.  Testing them to see who would believe and follow His teachings as John said, “He knew beforehand who would believe.”

Still they “murmured and complained,” and though they had seen many miracles just as the OT Jews had, they walked away from Jesus.  As the Exodus went on, thousands turned away from God.

God told these people, “When they ate the meat and bread, they would know He was their Lord and God.”  

He did not say, “When you see it, handled it, or pass it around,” He said, “When they ate it.”   More or less their “eyes would be open and they would recognize God.”

This is what happened on the “Road to Emmaus.”  

This story in the OT, (and as I said, there is another) is almost identical to what happened in the NT.  This story, is what was leading up to the Eucharistic, teachings.  

Jesus said, “I am the true bread from heaven./God rained down bread from heaven.”

Never was it changed that one did not have to “consume,” this bread, in order for our “eyes to be opened to our Lord.” 

I have given the teachings of Christ Himself.  I have given my personal experience of it, and why I came to believe, which again was “faith.”  I have shown how all of this started.

Now it is time, to see what happened with it all, in the NT, when the Apostles taught it, and what John saw in Revelations.   (After that I am going to be doing the teachings of the early Church father’s on it, and an intense study on Peter, along with it.  God Bless, SR

Is Christ in the Eucharist? (The End)

Yesterday we left off where Jesus actually “swore an oath,” that He is in the Eucharist.  So what happened after that?

After He swore His oath He came back again and said,

“For My flesh is food “indeed,” and my blood is drink “indeed.”

(John 6:55)

Jesus was using every word possible and doing everything possible, to make these disbeliever’s believe this teaching.

 He goes on with the teaching, and the Jews continue to murmur about it.  Scripture then tells us:

“But Jesus, knowing in Himself that his disciples murmured at it, said to them, “Do you take offense to this?”  John 6:61

At this point the exasperation Jesus must have felt, we could not even fathom.  He has promised, He came back and re-promised, and the unbelievers would not listen to what He was saying.   These people probably saw Jesus perform miracle after miracle, but this one teaching was just “too off the charts for them.”

He is trying to tell them after this, “You are going to have to have faith.”

 It is the next Scripture which got me.

For Jesus knew from the first who those were that did not believe, and who it was that would betray Him./And he said, “This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless it is granted him by the Father.”  John 6:64

Scripture then tells us they still, “drew back and no longer walked with Him.”  (They abandoned Jesus over this teaching.)

Then Jesus said to the Twelve, “Will you go away also? 

And Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go?/You have the words of eternal life, and we have believed and have come to know, that you are the Holy One of God.”

When I got to this part I saw Jesus had done and said all He could have, to convince these people what He was teaching was true.   I knew at that moment I could also, “turn away and abandon Jesus because of this teaching, or I could ask for the faith He said I needed and believe.”

That was the position I was in.   A decision had to be made.  

Jesus said, “I could come to Him if God so granted.”  

Jesus said, “I could have faith in this teaching if God so granted.”

So I begin to pray for this “supernatural faith.”  

The first night I received Jesus in the Eucharist, I literally broke down.  Tears streamed out of me like a river.  Sobs filled the Church.

I remember turning to my sponsor and saying, “I love Him so much.”

I understood at that moment, I had been granted the “faith” I had asked God for.  I understood it, because I had never in my life felt the love for Christ, that I felt at that moment.  I will never forget it, and from that night forward, there has never been a doubt in my mind, that the consecrated “bread and the wine” are truly Christ.

Christ never meant any of this to be taken metaphorically.  He never said, “It is all symbolism.”  Man, did that.

On the “Walk to Emmaus” after the Resurrection, Luke 24:30 tells us:

When He was at the table with them, He took bread and blessed it and gave it to them./And their eyes were opened and they recognized Him; and He vanished out of their sight.”  (I ask you to remember this, because next post I am going to go to the Old Testament and show you the exact same story.)

On another note, what I am trying to say is:

There was a day I did not believe Jesus was in the “bread and wine.”  There was a day which I only thought of the Eucharist/Holy Communion as symbolic.

Since the first night I received Him in this most beautiful Sacrament of my heart;

“My eyes were opened and I recognized Him.”

He has never vanished out of my sight, since that day.   I see Him there at every single Mass.

When I walk out of Church, He is abiding in me, and I in Him, just like He promised.

God Bless, SR

Is Christ in the Eucharist? (Part 1)

Hooray we are finally here, the teachings of Christ in the Eucharist.  These are the very things which made me believe He was truly present, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity in the “bread and wine.”  I am going to be using other sources for this, along with Scripture to keep it more to the point, and it is going to have to be done in two-three post.  I am also going to be using the discourse in the Book of John, Chapter 6, beginning with 6:4.

In my last post I wrote, “where the Church had come to earth on the Day of the Cross.”  Before this happened though, Jesus instituted the Eucharist/Holy Communion to be given/offered in this Church, which I will later explain with Peter, Paul and the Book of Revelations.

So let us begin.

“On the eve of the Passover, when the Passover lambs were sacrificed, Jesus performs the miracle of multiplying loaves.  Jesus then reminds the Jews that God gave them bread from heaven on their journey to the Promise Land, and now will give them the true bread from heaven.  Then Jesus says, “I am the bread which came down from heaven.” After the Jews question Him, Jesus goes on to say, “I am the bread of life….I am the living bread from heaven; if any one eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh.”

“The Jews understand Jesus’ words literally and immediately question His teaching by saying, “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?”  Jesus does “Not CORRECT” their literal understanding.  Instead, Jesus “SWEARS” an oath and speaks even more literally about eating His flesh and drinking His Blood:

Verily, Verily, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink His blood, you have no life in you; he who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.  For my flesh is food indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.  He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him.  As the Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so he who eats me will live because of me.  This is the bread which came down from heaven, not such as the fathers ate and died; he who eats this bread will live forever.”

Now remember I said in the other post,  “The Jews were forbidden to drink blood,” and how they also took this teaching as “cannibalism?”  Number one “blood” was considered to be the “life-giving source,” which it is.  Our blood is what gives us life.  The Blood of Christ is what gives us “life.”   

Another thing which happened here as we can see the Jews did not even want to listen to Jesus’ teachings on this.  They said, “This is a hard saying who can listen to it?”  

Then Jesus told them, “It is the spirit that gives life, the flesh is of no avail.”

What Jesus was saying was, “You need supernatural faith to believe this teaching.”  The Jews could not understand this teaching by reason alone.

Now another thing Jesus did in this discourse was “swear an oath.”  He did this by using the words, “Verily, Verily.”    Some versions say, “Truly, Truly.”

What does the word, “verily” mean?

In Hebrew it means, “Amen, so be it, truth.”

In Greek it means, “trustworthy, surely, so be it, Amen.”

So Jesus did not “just” say, “I am in the bread and wine.”  He “PROMISED”  he was.

Now during my studies on this I had to ask myself, “Did Jesus lie?”  

Of course I knew He did not.  This is what began my belief that Jesus was indeed speaking “literally.”

I will explain more in post number 2.

When did the “Kingdom of Heaven” Come to Earth?

Before I go into the teachings of the Bible on the true presence of Christ in the Eucharist, I think it is important that we understand why this was done, and who/what the Eucharist was going to be given to.

We see in the NT when Jesus instituted the “Lord’s Supper” Him saying something.

“Truly I say to you, I shall not drink again the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the “Kingdom of God.”

When Jesus was on the Cross they offered Him, “vinegar mixed with myrrh.”  (Myrrh was a narcotic used to help kill the pain.)  He refused it in Matthew and Mark.  Then we go to the book of John, the Book of John offered Him “vinegar,” (sour wine) and He drank it.

Upon drinking it, He said, “It is finished.”  (Now in my post on the cups we know Jesus was taking the “cup of consummation to the Cross.”  (Fourth cup in the Passover meal.)  The “it” here meant, “He consummated us back to God.”  “It is consummated.”

So let us look again at what Jesus said at the Lord’s Supper.  

“I shall not drink again the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the Kingdom of God.”

What happened when Jesus took the “sour wine” on the Cross?

The Kingdom of God had come to earth.  The Church.

Now many say, “We are the Church.”  True.

Let us go and see what Scripture says, if maybe there is an established Church?

1 Cor. 4-17 “Therefore I sent to you Timothy my beloved, and faithful child in the Lord, to remind you of my ways in Christ, as I teach them everywhere “IN” every Church.”

1 Timothy 3:15 “If I am delayed, you may know how one ought to behave “IN” the “Household” of God which is the “Church of the living God, the pillar and bulwark of the truth.”

As you go through the NT Scriptures realize the members of this Church are called the “Holy Ones.”

So yes, we can “consider ourselves part of the Church,” but… we can see from these Scriptures alone, (though there are more) there was an established Church, which is the “pillar and bulwark of the truth.”  (Notice the Bible does not say, Scripture is the “pillar and bulwark of the truth.”  It is this Church, established by Christ.

Why?  

There was no Bible at that time.  The Bible did not come until 300+ years later.

Now let us go and see what happened before the Lord’s death.

Matt. 16:18-19 Jesus said, “And I tell you, you are Peter and on this “Rock” I will build my Church and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it./I will give you the “keys” of the “Kingdom of Heaven.”  (Again the Church.)

This was foreshadowed in Isaiah 22:22 and God said, “I will place on his shoulder, (Eliakim)  the “key” of the house of David; he shall open and no one shall shut, he shall shut and no one shall open.”

We see the word “key” here, which means “authority.”   We see the words “Church and “Kingdom of Heaven” are the same.  We see in both the Old And New Testaments God and Jesus handed “authority” over to men, of both “houses.”

Peter was given the “authority” over this Church.  

Many say, “Jesus built this “Church on Himself.”  That is not what Jesus said.

Peter’s name in the Greek means “Petros.”   Which means “rock.”  Jesus built it on Peter, just like He said He did.

Now why did I do this?

This Church came with a form of worship, rituals, traditions and Sacraments which I will prove in Scripture, relating back to the Old Testament.

This is one of the many reasons the Eucharist had to be instituted.  The Eucharist was going to be at the very “core” of the worship of God.

All of this is going to correlate to how God wanted to be worshiped in the Old Testament, and how He brought it forth to the New Testament, to be worshiped.  Also why the “true presence of Christ, is with us in the “bread and wine.”

God Bless, SR

The Underlying References of Christ in the Eucharist/Holy Communion

For those of you who are following the teachings on the “true presence of Christ” in the Eucharist, I want to give you some things to refer to before I get into Scripture.  I am asking that you please print these off, bc you do not want to be like I was and continually have to look this and that up.   If you print this out, when I get into the NT and the early Church father’s you can have this to go back to.

I apologize for the length of this, but I had to do this myself, and I am trying to put it all in one place for you as much as I can.

Okay, God never said, “Offer me nothing,” did He?  He said, “No longer would He accept an animal sacrifice.”  We offer up to God a lot of “sacrifices.”  The sacrifices of praise, thanksgiving, some their very lives, work, time, and the list goes on and on.  (In my post next week I am going to explain how the Eucharist/Holy Communion comes into play in this.)

Abraham:  God provided Abraham a sacrifice.  Actually it was “God’s own sacrifice.”  Abraham still had to do one thing, and that was to offer it to God in the Old Covenant. (In my post I am going to explain how this foreshadowed what was going to happen under the New Covenant.)

Covenants:  God is a God of covenants.  They are everlasting between God and his people.  We are the new Israel for lack of a better term, under the New Covenant.  What God gave to Israel under the Old Covenant, He gave to the gentiles under the New Covenant.  The gentiles had no Passover Meal, but the Jews did.

Jesus said, “Do this in remembrance of Me”  (The Lord’s Supper) Why?  It goes back to the Passover Meal when Israel did this to commemorate their freedom from slavery in Egypt.   We do it to commemorate our freedom from sin, as Jesus said, “As often as you do this, you proclaim my death.”  His death is what freed us from our “slavery” to sin. (Not sin in it’s entirety but our “slavery” to it.)  Remember that and I will explain in post.

In the Name of Jesus:  We cannot even go to God in prayer without doing it in the Name of Jesus.  Why?  Jesus has to be offered to God, in Name, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity.  (Which I will explain in the future post.)

Once and for all:  “Jesus died once and for all, His suffering is over.”  True.  In heaven though His priestly presentation is never described as “over.”  (Mediating the New Covenant always.)   

“Once and for all,” does not mean “over and done with.”  Let me explain this.

We “once and for all have a polio vaccine.”  We take it.  The effects of that vaccine are ongoing, everlasting, never-changing.  Forever that vaccine protects us from polio, today as much as it did the day we received.   We had to go and receive it, though.

That is what “once and for all,”  regarding Jesus’ presentation of His Sacrifice, in the Bible  (by Himself) and in the Eucharist is.  It is perpetual.  Ongoing, everlasting, never-changing, continually being offered. Where?

For one place in heaven and the other is earth.  Hebrews 9:12 tells us, “Jesus entered once for all into the Holy Place, … taking his own blood.”  Why did Jesus take His blood to heaven?  It was over and done with wasn’t it?  Let’s see what Revelations tells us.

Jesus is in heaven as a “Lamb standing as though it had been slain.”  (Rev. 5:6)  He is also in heaven wearing a long robe and a golden girdle.  (Rev. 1:13)  Same vestments worn by the Old Testament Priest who offered animal sacrifices.  

Jesus is also described as a “clad dipped in blood,” and this blood is offered to the saints to “wash their robes and make them white.”  These verses right here emphasize that the blood of Jesus’ sacrifice is forever present in heaven, and it is on earth.  (God has to have the Blood Sacrifice offered to Him forever. Jesus has to do it as our High Priest and we have to do it also and I will explain in the post.)

The Scoffers:  When Jesus taught that He was in the Eucharist/Holy Communion the scoffers could not accept this teaching.  Why?  Jesus was teaching “cannibalism” to them, and under Jewish law and the Old Covenant the Jews were forbidden to drink blood.  

In Rome when the early Christians celebrated Mass some considered them “cannibals.”  Why?  Because “They “ate” their God.”  Cannibalism under Roman law was punishable by death.  (I will explain this when I get to the early Church father’s.)  (This goes to show just how far back the belief of the “true presence of Christ in the Eucharist,” goes. To the Roman Empire.)

Let us look as to why the scoffers turned to leave Jesus.  They took His teachings regarding His presence in the Eucharist, “LITERALLY.”    (I will explain this in the post.)

If we place the word “Holy” on the words “Communion/Eucharist,” What makes it holy?  Who makes it “holy?”

Melchizedek:  We have to look at the word “order” in the Scripture, “In the order of Melchizedek.”  What does it mean?  In the Greek it means arrangement, i.e. (in time) fixed succession (of rank or character,) official dignity, order.  It is derived from the meanings of to arrange in an orderly manner, i.e. assign or dispose (to a certain position or lot) addict, appoint, determine, ordain, set.

When Melchizedek brought out the bread and wine, and blessed Abram by “God the most high,” this was forever set in time, through this “order.”  Christ was assigned the High Priest, the King, just like Melchizedek, and the significance of the bread and wine was forever “set in time,” with all the rest of it.  (Which I will show in Scripture.)

Like I said, please print this out, so you are not a “me.”   This is all what is going to be referenced in the NT teachings coming next week.

God Bless, SR

The Foreshadowing of the Eucharist in the Old Testament

Before I begin I want all of my Protestant followers to know, this is in no form or fashion trying to say, “I am right, and you are wrong.”  I was asked questions and I needed answers.  After a five year study, for myself I found them.  

You know I love you all, and the Protestant verses Catholic thing has never been an issue with any of us.  I intend to keep it that way.  As I have learned so much from you as well.

This is going to be a long study so be patient.

A question which I read, “If the sacrifice of Christ were completed and I was totally secure, then why was Jesus in heaven still mediating the New Covenant?”

I absolutely had no answer for that one, and it took me five years to find it.  So let us go to the Old Testament to see where, how, and when it began.

It began for one with Melchizedek, (which I will get into later) but also when God commanded the Israelite’s to consume their sacrifice to make atonement for their sins and restore their communion with God.  (Ex. 29:33)

Also in 2 Chron 26:18, only a valid consecrated priest could offer the sacrifice.  This also symbolized the covenant God had with the Israelite’s.   We must remember as Hebrews tell us, “a priest must have something to offer.” (Heb. 8:3)

The Mosaic Covenant was consummated with a meal in the presence of God.  (Ex. 24:9-11)  The Aaronic sacrifices also had to be consumed to restore communion with God.  (Lev. 7:5, 19:22)  When God saved Isaac with another sacrifice, this sacrifice also had to be consumed.  (Gen. 22:9-13)  

Of course the sacrifice of the Passover lamb.  This was to give homage and remembrance to Israel’s freedom from Egypt.  Each family had to have a lamb without blemish or broken bones, and they had to sprinkle the blood on the doorsteps.  

This sacrifice was not sufficient for God.  They had to “eat” the sacrificed lamb.  

 We all know how God rained down manna from heaven, which foreshadowed the “true bread from heaven,” Jesus.

In the Old Testament the slaughtering and consuming of the Passover lamb, was to commemorate Israel’s freedom from slavery.  It also foreshadowed the Passover Lamb, Jesus, who was slaughtered and who also had to be consumed. 

He is consumed as the bread from heaven, offered in the same manner as the offering of Melchizedek, to free God’s people from the slavery of sin.  

Hebrews explains how Jesus makes His sacrifice eternally present to us, “after the order of Melchizedek.”  Melchizedek is described as a priest and king of Salem (now Jerusalem) who offered “bread and wine” sacrifice and called God’s blessings on Abram.  

Also in Hebrews the author describes Jesus as our new King and High Priest who instituted the Eucharist with a “bread and wine sacrifice” to bless the world.  “In the same manner as Melchizedek did.”  This prophecy is in Psalm 110:4. 

When Melchizedek brought out the “bread and wine” way back there in Genesis, that was the beginning of it all.  From that day forward the “bread and wine” gained nothing but significance, with God and His people.  God does not change.

Two other places I want to go in the Old Testament is Psalms 116:13 “I will lift up the “cup of salvation” and call on the name of the Lord.”  There is only one “cup of salvation” and that is Jesus in the Eucharist. (The word “cup” we have to pay attention to.  It is all over the Bible.)

Then Mal. 1:11  “For from the rising of the sun to its setting my name is great among the nations, and in every place incense is offered to my name, and a “pure offering;” for my name is great among the nations, says the Lord of host.”  

Right here God is telling us, animal sacrifices from His people are going to be rejected, instead they are going to offer Him a “pure offering,” around the clock and every where. 

He also says in verse 12 of  Malachi, “But you profane it when you say the Lord’s table is polluted, and the food for it may be despised.”  (We need to think about that.)

Though there are more, I took what was to me, the most important foreshadowing of the Eucharist, in the Old Testament.  

Next post I am bringing up the Old Testament, into the New Testament with the teachings of Jesus, then St. Paul, then the early Church father’s.  

In this I pray we all see how much the Old Testament and the New Testament are really a total repeat of one another.  Just different people, but not different ways.  

God never changes and His ways always stays the same.

God Bless, SR

What is a “Cup?”

I want to be doing some post regarding the early Church father’s and what they wrote about the “true presence of Christ” in the Holy Eucharist.

Before I do, I want to explain the “significance” of the “cup” in Scripture.   The “cup” Jesus so spoke of.

Coming to the belief of the “true presence of Christ” in the Eucharist was not easy for me.  I studied every single thing I could get my hands on.  I did not come to this belief, just because someone told me. 

I will show why and how I came to believe the “wafer” was so much more than a “wafer.”  The “wine” was so much more than a “cup of wine.”

So let us begin this with the “cups.”  I think it is important to understand this, before we can understand the rest of it.

Jesus said,  “My Father, if it be possible, let this “cup” pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as thou wilt.”  What did He mean?  What was in that word, “cup?”

The Passover Meal, was divided in four parts.  In as much as this is, we have to go back to the Old Testament to understand.

I am getting this from “A Father Who Keeps His Promises,” written by Scott Hahn.  One of the best books I have ever laid my hands on.  So let us begin.

“First, the preliminary course consisted of a solemn blessing, (kiddush) pronounced over the first cup of wine, which followed by a dish of bitter herbs. (This was meant to remind the Jews of the bitterness of Egyptian bondage.)/Second, the Passover narrative (see Ex 12) was recited, after with the “Little Hallel,” (Ps. 113) was sung.  This was immediately followed by the drinking of the second cup of wine./Third, the main meal was then served consisting of lamb and unleavened bread, which preceded the drinking of the third cup of wine, known as the “blessing cup.”/Finally, the climax of the Passover came with the singing of the “Great Hallel,” (Ps. 114-18) and the drinking of the fourth cup of the wine, “the cup of consummation.”

So we know in the Last Supper, Jesus was on the “blessing cup,” the “third cup.”  He blessed it and Mark 14:26 tells us, “they sung a hymn.” 

Paul identifies this “cup of blessing” with the “cup of the Eucharist.”  (1 Cor 10:16)

So what about the “cup in Gethsemane?”  Was it the “cup of God’s wrath?”

Could be in part?  Notice in the Passover Meal which Jesus was giving, He skipped the “fourth cup.”  Stopped right on the “blessing cup.”

We do not see it mentioned again, until the “Garden of Gethsemane.”

What “cup” did Jesus want taken from Him?  It was the “fourth cup,” in the Passover Meal, the “cup of consummation.”

When Jesus died, that was the “cup” He took to the Cross with Him.  He “consummated us back to God.”  

When He did, He became the “Passover Meal.”

I know ending here, leaves many unanswered questions.  I promise you, you will understand.

The question which was answered for myself, in studying this was, “God never changes how He does things.”  He brought the Old Testament right into the New Testament.  

The “Passover Meal,” was never stopped.

I will explain more in future post, where I found these claims to be true in Scripture.

God Bless, SR
