The Communion Deception
there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to
this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into
lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
Over the past few years God has shown me some of the most shocking and awful things about this world I thought I could ever imagine, yet to me what I am about to share with you is in a sense the most deplorable of all. If you’re like me you’ve been brought up to think that partaking in the ‘Lord’s Supper’ or Communion at church is a perfectly biblical and Godly practice. But what if I told you that Christ never meant for the church to take communion collectively in public meetings? And not only that, but this fact is stated quite plainly by Paul in the book of Corinthians?
Seriously folks, I’ve never said this before but my mind was totally blown when I read it. Am I the first person to actually read this in the bible in the last two thousand years? Of course not, so why has it not been taught? Every church I ever went to had communion the first Sunday of the month, were they all wrong? In a word, yes, and this just proves beyond a doubt how the church has been corrupted by satanic deception.
I am going to skim over the whole eleventh chapter of first Corinthians where Paul is teaching what is and isn’t proper conduct during church assemblies just to make certain you see the context of his comments on publicly taking communion.
Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.
We note in the verse above that Paul kicks off this chapter by asserting his Godly authority over the Corinthian church. It is biblical to follow church authorities, but only as long as they are following Christ. We are not to be blind followers of any man, but must always check what they say against scripture to make sure it is true, as the Bereans did. Always keep in mind that the church is not merely a building, but any gathering of believers. In other words when two or more of us are gathered in His name, in any place, we may consider it ‘church’ (Matthew 18:20 KJV).
Now in this that I declare unto you I praise you not,
that ye come together not for the better, but for the worse. For first of
all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions
among you; and I partly believe it.
After dealing with the topic of the man and woman covering their heads while praying Paul delves into the subject of division in the church, specifically over things that are ‘for the worse’ of the body. As we can surmise from the beginning of the church age there were divisions amongst the brethren, however he had a very interesting take on how they should be understood.
Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I
tell you, Nay; but rather division: For from henceforth there shall be five
in one house divided, three against two, and two against three.
Could division be a good thing? According to Christ, yes! But this is totally the opposite of what the apostate church teaches. When someone attempts to starts a dialog over the heresies in their church they are usually dealt with harshly. Sin is swept under the rug; it seems that the worst sin you can commit in the apostate church today is to judge with righteous judgment by condemning sin (stop judging meeeee), or neglect paying your tithes.
For there must be also heresies among you, that they
which are approved may be made manifest among you.
Paul tells us that heresies are present in the body of Christ in order to make plain who the true believers are; who are the wheat and the chaff. You will know them by their fruits and the Spirit will bear witness to what they say. So division in the body of Christ is a good thing because it allows us to rightly divide the Word of God and deal with it so we can then purge the false doctrine from amongst us.
When ye come together therefore into one place, this
is not to eat the Lord's Supper.
Now Paul goes into a heresy that was present even in the early church. Seems pretty plainly stated, doesn’t it? But if this is what Paul is trying to convey to us he must give us a reason. Why shouldn’t we partake of the Lord’s Supper collectively as a church body?
For in eating every one taketh before other his own
supper: and one is hungry, and another is drunken.
What Paul is stating is that even though we may think we are taking the Lord’s Supper collectively each one of us is in fact taking it as an individual in God’s eyes, and will be judged accordingly. Some amongst the brethren may be tempted to eat the bread out of hunger or drink the wine because they are drunkards. No one should ever feel compelled to take the Lord’s Supper or be put in a position where they might feel any peer pressure to partake. Why?
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.
To take the Lord’s Supper unworthily is a very grave matter; this is why we do not want to tempt the hungered or drunkard to partake. But more likely is the person who is liable to do so because of peer pressure or ignorance. Partaking of the Lord’s Supper is a personal choice; it should not be done on a set schedule, but privately, whenever each believer feels the need.
Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat,
tarry one for another.
What of those who do make a sincere effort to examine themselves? When we do so it must be to the best of our ability, but how could we possibly do that in the time constraints of a modern church setting? Some will inevitably need more time to examine themselves before God than others, yet feel pressured to partake simultaneously with the congregation. But to fully examine ourselves before we partake is crucial, because according to scripture the consequences of not doing so are literally life threatening! Now ask yourselves; how on earth could someone even think to examine their hearts properly when many of these churches are blasting music that stirs up their flesh while the bread and cup is being passed amongst the crowd?
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. For if we would
judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
Now can you see why the Great Whore has turned what is supposed to be a private practice between the individual and their God into a public ritual? When Christians disobey the Word of God we literally give Satan’s servants legal rights to curse us with all manner of sickness, and even death (Hosea 4:6 KJV). Have you ever heard of the ‘blood libel’? In many churches Satanists have a field day with the host. They curse it the night before in satanic rituals; they pollute it with all sorts of vile things including the flesh of dead babies.
But I have a few things against thee, because thou
hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a
stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto
idols, and to commit fornication.
In many churches we are unknowingly eating things sacrificed to strange gods just as Christ warned the church against in the book of Revelation.
Just to be clear, remembering Christ’s sacrifice and examining ourselves as Christ taught us is something we all should do. If we take communion with others we must be reasonably certain that each one is a believer who understands the seriousness of the act. Ours is a personal relationship with Him, and we should take as long as we need to reflect on His act on the cross and ask forgiveness for our sins. 1 Corinthians 11:24-25 suggests that we do this as often as we sit down to a meal, just take a moment to remember our transgressions and ask God to forgive them in the name of His son Jesus.
Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop,
when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas
Iscariot, the son of Simon. And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then
said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly.
I find it very interesting that the occasion that Satan entered into Judas was the night that Jesus and the disciples had the very first 'Lord's Supper'. It doesn't say if Judas first bit into the piece of bread that Jesus handed him before Satan entered into him, however if so, it certainly would have qualified as the him as the first person to take the Lord's supper unworthily.
